The Democrats have finally thrown off the veneer of minimal government and have gone full on tyrannical dictator. A few examples:
Governor Cuomo has been issuing imperial dictates for weeks, and they are getting more arbitrary and ridiculous as time goes on. The latest example is a prohibition on bars who do not serve food serving alcohol. Now he is claiming that only some items count as ‘food’ while others do not. In one case, saying that chicken wings do not count as ‘food’ while sandwiches DO count.
Jerry Demings (the husband of Congresswoman Val Demings, who was on the short list to be Biden’s running mate) is the mayor of Orange County, Florida. He is ‘exploring’ ways to punish business owners who violate his mask dictates, even though Florida’s Governor issued his own dictate that prevents him from doing that.
All of this shows that conflicts between businesses and government are coming to a head. The New York Health Department has issued a $15,000 fine to one business owner who threw them out of a protest meeting. The owner of the business tore up the fine and is refusing to pay.
Things are accelerating.
