Cuomo Bans Dancing And Comedy But Not Axe Throwing

Dancing and comedy in New York are virus attractors according to Governor Andrew “Nursing Home” Cuomo. Therefore comedy, dancing, corn hole games, and karaoke are verboten.

“There is no dancing allowed in New York’s bars and restaurants, even at a wedding reception, according to the New York State Liquor Authority.

To control the spread of the coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s liquor authority has also specifically banned darts, pool, cornhole, karaoke and exotic dancing.

Somehow, a place that allows customers to throw axes and drink beer is reopening Friday. There was no word from the liquor authority on how that fits in to safety protocols.”

Axe throwing is awesome! Riots and looting, no big deal. But that sentimental Father Daughter dance at a wedding. HORRIFYING!

The jokes and memes are writing themselves on this. Especially with multiple references to Footloose. 

“How much longer do the dictators in charge really think they can keep this up? I never thought I’d see the day when Democrats became pulpit-pounding puritans keeping the kids from dancing, but here we are.

And is it necessary? It sure doesn’t seem so with coronavirus deaths plummeting all over the country. But what do we know? We just pay the bills here. Let’s all leave the hard stuff to the crooked politicians, who have been wrong about everything, to figure out. I heard someone on the radio today ask, “how much more will we take?” and the answer is “a whole lot more.” New Yorkers may be rebelling privately, but publicly they’re all on board 100% — “for our safety” — and making sure everyone knows it.”

Megan notes in her article that while people are rebelling privately, even at the Mass she attended recently, people wouldn’t sing! 

This is where we are folks, and this is why the references to Footloose are apt in my opinion. That movie’s premise was that dancing and music were banned because of ONE SINGLE tragic event. That’s what is happening across our country because of this Wuhan virus. Shut down the economy in any way we can and somehow magically, that bad virus will disappear. Carefully open schools and colleges up, but slam shut again when less than 1% of the student population tests positive. 

In Colorado, Governor Polis kept bars from operating past ten pm. Because you know, the virus only starts wandering through the bars and streets at 10:01 pm and beyond. Last night Denver, as with Portland and other cities, was the scene of destructive riots that left businesses destroyed, trees burned, and graffiti everywhere. 

Rioting is fine! No viruses there! Dancing in New York? We are all GOING TO DIE!

Cuomo has been on a spree shutting down bars that are observed to be flouting the rules. 

“”River’s Edge” at 657-659 Lenox Avenue in Manhattan, on August 16, 2020

On August 15th, investigators with the state’s multi-agency task force observed approximately fifteen patrons standing and drinking directly outside the premises, most without facial coverings. Inside, investigators documented five patrons sitting at the bar consuming alcohol, in flagrant violation of the Governors’ Executive Order in place since March 16, 2020 restricting indoor dining. Investigators also observed three employees not wearing facial coverings and found no evidence that food was being served — in violation of the state’s Alcohol Beverage Control Law dating back to 1964.”

First of all, the bars were supposed to magically serve food, not chicken wings mind you, but FOOD in order to be open. Secondly, how is one supposed to drink a beverage with a mask covering your face? Through a straw? Guess what, you still have to move the damned mask to drink!

Comedy routines and ticketed music at bars and restaurants are now forbidden. 

“”As an event producer, my whole business and all my friends and business associates are deeply impacted — 30 years in the music business and in one fell swoop we have been destroyed,” said Diane Tucci in Riverhead. “I’m down 98 percent in revenue with no end in sight for the event business. Many of my friends own bars or play at them. The restaurants were starting to charge for bands in order to pay them. This affects our whole culture. Live music and supporting musicians is at the heart of everything I have done for years.”

She added: “Did Cuomo not get an instrument for Christmas as a kid? Why the vendetta against restaurants and breweries and musicians?” Tucci described the mandate as “the latest death blow from Cuomo.””

Now is the time for music. Now is the time for laughter. Unless you are Governor Andrew “Nursing Home” Cuomo that is. His new normal evidently means the laughter and music we so badly need will kill us all!

Oh wait, the VMA Music Awards are the exception to this rule! No 14-day quarantine for them! 

The hypocrisy is fathoms deep and miles wide here. Music and concerts are allowed if it is the VMA Music awards because celebrities or something. 

Comedy and dancing anywhere else. FORBIDDEN! 

Isn’t it time we stopped living in fear? Isn’t it time we started to dance …. and LIVE?

Why yes, yes it is.

  • Well, even before CoViD, I excessively socially distanced from axe throwers. Caber tossers, too, for that matter.

  • Robin H says:

    The axe will actually slice through and kill any of the floating cooties, so that’s a plus! And are the bride and groom allowed to dance? I mean they’ll be sharing more than cooties on their wedding night.
    Why have more businesses not sued on the basis of this being totally arbitrary? These would be dictators need to be held personally liable for the business losses.

    • GWB says:

      WHAT?! NO! They will wear masks and socially distance as they consummate their relationship.
      What kind of freak are you?

    Cuomo is, indeed, enjoying his dictator status during this pandemic. Make no mistake….he wants to run for president. His “faithful” supporters are forgetting/forgiving the death sentence he laid upon senior citizens, along with the economic hardships he has heaped upon New Yorkers. I am a New Yorker…No way in hell I would ever vote for Herr Cuomo !!

  • DM says:

    Do you think they stay up nites thinking of ways to humiliate the people/sheeple who voted for them. Just to see how far they can go before the sheeple realize they are being made fun of for their willingness to do stupid things for no other reason than the petty tyrants want to see them show their complete submission. As Anthony Fauci said “masks are there as a sign to show that we’re willing to do what he (fauci) wants us to do. So, it’s a sign of the willingness to comply.” It is a modern version of the Gessler hat.” https://nofacemask.blogspot….

    Live Free or Die

    Give me liberty or give me death.

    Now, we are a society that willingly wears useless talismans on our faces at the order of tinhorn dictator governors.

    At the beginning of the clampdowns I had a discussion with a liberal office-mate. I stated that these tinhorns could not control a free society. A few days ago she mentioned that I was wrong. I replied, “I was not wrong and am still not wrong. I said a FREE SOCIETY.”

    Part of society is free in the Rousseau sense. They are free to burn, loot, murder, intimidate, coerce, strong-arm, and physically destroy everything in their path. Their freedom is encouraged and protected by the government and media. The other large segment of society is being cajoled by government and willingly surrender their freedom and liberty.

    We get what we deserve.

    Darn. If those nursing homes had rebranded themselves as “Senior Dance Clubs” thousands of lives would have been saved…

  • GWB says:

    throw axes …. There was no word from the liquor authority on how that fits in to safety protocols.
    Oh, c’mon, that’s easy! Would you stand within 6 feet of some drunk dude waving an axe around? I generally back off beyond arm’s reach at least when someone is ave throwing.

    I never thought I’d see the day when Democrats became pulpit-pounding puritans keeping the kids from dancing
    Pfft. I could see this one coming back in the 80s.

    Let’s all leave the hard stuff to the crooked politicians, who have been wrong about everything, to figure out.
    Don’t forget the “experts”. This is what happens when you abdicate your responsibility for living your life to someone else – like the gov’t. I keep beating this horse.

    somehow magically, that bad virus will disappear
    Yep. It’s a superstitious (religious) response. “Wave the magical mask at the virus and he can’t harm you.”

    Cuomo has been on a spree shutting down bars that are observed to be flouting the rules.
    What, no love for California? They’re shutting off water and electricity there! Cuomo’s a piker!

    drinking … without facial coverings
    OK, Mr Inspector. Please demonstrate for me how I’m supposed to drink with a mask on?

    Why the vendetta against restaurants and breweries and musicians?
    Because he’s a totalitarian! Because you will submit! Because only he knows what’s good for you!

  • ADStryker says:

    As incompetent as Cuomo has proven to be, I must point out that chicks dig axe throwing. The dancing prohibition does surprise me a bit, since much of modern “dance” more closely resembles a gaggle of independent drunkards trying to shake ants from their pants than it does an intimate social interaction.

    • GWB says:

      It’s all the heavy breathing and sweating that’s a problem, I’m sure.
      (Most every modern club dance floor I’ve been on in 40 years meets all the conditions of heat and humidity to kill coronavirus dead in seconds.)
