Kill New York to Defeat Trump

New Yorkers like to think of their city as No. 1. Apparently, the latest achievement of world leadership is dubious, to say the least.

New York City is unique for still failing to allow indoor dining. All other major cities in the world have allowed it. New York City’s Mayor de Blasio says No. And he will not even discuss the matter.

The Daily Mail reports:

New York City is the only major city in the world that is yet to reopen indoor dining after closing for the coronavirus pandemic, despite having greater testing than anywhere else and an infection rate of less than one percent. 

The industry in the Big Apple is at its wits end with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio who inexplicably won't allow discussions for indoor dining to resume. 

They insist it is not safe and that other regions have seen a sudden uptick in cases when it begins but every other city in the state of New York is allowing it and most around America are too. 

Beyond the US, in cities including London, Paris, Milan and Beijing - all of which coronavirus spikes - indoor dining is happening safely. 

Of course, it’s politics. Keeping restaurants closed to indoor dining will damage the local economy. It will cause restaurants to close and will cause tens of thousands of people to lose their jobs. It will disrupt social life in the city.

But, it will also put a damper on the nation’s economic recovery. And, at a time when beating Trump is all that matters to the radical left, it’s the least that New York’s restaurant workers can do.

The city economy is being destroyed by Comrade de Blasio, but he believes that it will help defeat Trump. And he believes that a victorious Democratic Party will send boatloads of cash to New York... to save it from insolvency and to retain the city workers whose union supported him.

As for the people… the people be damned.

I would post a more extensive response if I weren't meeting a friend for breakfast in a local restaurant.

One more time, NYC, about Comrade Bill:

Yes, he is making it very tough to live there. But, as we say in the South, you picked him.

The suffering of arrogant, know-it-all, New York provincials is music to my ears. They earned this, they own it, and now that they have skin in the game, they must pay for it.

The best part? They will draw all the wrong lessons from their suffering. They will learn nothing. They will try and pin this on orangeman, on anyone but themselves. Oh, there is one other best part, the Trump Tower standing tall right in the middle of their hatred. Delicious. Like a giant orange and glass phallus reaching to the sky to remind them that he build buildings all over NYC. It's yuuuuuge!

As I've said before, when your mayor is a Democrat, and your governor is a Democrat, YOU are a two-time loser. Well, unless you're "in with the IN-crowd". (Until you aren't.)

I would hope that NYC voters would not vote for de Blasio in the next election, but I wouldn't put it past them to do just that.

He thinks the dims would gladly elect him president for "getting rid of Trump." Which, knowing their venal ideas, is probably true. And he's a totalitarian in the making (no hyperbole needed; we've all seen the proof.)
