Cuomo Bans Dancing And Comedy But Not Axe Throwing
Cuomo Bans Dancing And Comedy But Not Axe Throwing
“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!
@NYGovCuomo banned DANCING in New York. I wish i was making it up.— tis me (@anah131977) August 23, 2020
Also, why did you put Covid patients in nursing homes? This needs to be investigated ASAP. Thousands of elderly died when didn't need to, but you're worried about dancing and chicken wings! pic.twitter.com/LkfUqh9O61
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.
