Philadelphia Officially Embraces Chaos

The city of Philadelphia – the worst city in America, in my opinion – has decided to ban police from making traffic stops for low-level traffic offenses. The drunken idiot mayor claims stopping traffic offenders is, get this, racist.

Philadelphia became the first major city to ban police traffic stops of low-level motor vehicle offenses, a tactic which critics claim disproportionately affects black people.

The Philadelphia City Council passed two Driving Equity bills on Thursday that Mayor James Kenney is is expected to sign into law this week.

Jim Kenney is a drunken stumblebum, who is despised by the left and the right. He is arguably the worst mayor this city has ever seen, and when he claimed he was going to run for Pennsylvania governor, everyone laughed at him. He rescinded that idea almost immediately.

The law creates an open searchable database recording traffic stops and prohibits police officers from stopping drivers for minor offenses by reclassifying several offenses as secondary violations.

In Philadelphia, people of color are 3.4 times as likely to be pulled over as white people, according to WPVI, which analyzed city police and US Census data.

Wow, maybe that’s because blacks are the largest section of the population at 43.8%? Or maybe because blacks in Philadelphia usually live in the most violent neighborhoods? Do you think that has a correlation to traffic infractions, because I cannot count how many people in the ‘hood blow through red lights, speed down narrow streets, and strike pedestrians before fleeing the scene.

Planet Fatness

Well, I should be looking like this by Christmastime, thanks to Philadelphia’s drunken, douchebag mayor. Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney will be shutting down the city tomorrow through January 2nd, and among the soon-to-be-dead are gyms and fitness centers.

I’ve been really good at getting to the gym three to four times a week, and alternating days with ten-mile bike rides. I’m currently sitting at 188 pounds, and I’d like to get below 185 -where I was before the March shutdown.

None of this makes any sense. Essentially, the mayor is claiming gyms need to shut down because the members may pass on the Chinese Wuhan Virus, even after the local Planet Fitness spokesman said not one of the gyms has had an outbreak since reopening in September. Not one. Worse still, why would you punish the people who are working their asses off to stay healthy. That’s likely the reason we’ve had no outbreaks… because we’re working out every other day.

Instead, this dick would have us locked in our homes, gaining weight, and making us more susceptible to catch the virus. It’s the most ridiculous paradox I have ever seen.

Our jackass mayor’s capricious reasoning was based upon Philadelphia’s 1,900 Chinese Wuhan Virus deaths, and 55,000 positive tests. So, in Philadelphia, the fatality rate of the virus is 3.4 percent. OH MY GOD SHUT IT DOWN!

Today is my last day at the gym until next year, and after talking to some of the employees at my gym, they are less than pleased. They will be unemployed through the New Year, and some of them have no idea how they’ll make ends meet, let alone pay for a nice Christmas for their families.

It took me two months to get back into shape, only to be banned from my gym thanks to a petulant drunken dictator. Pretty soon, it’ll be too cold to ride the bike, and with no gym, I’m going to have to find other ways to stay slightly less fat.

The “Birthplace Of Freedom”

The drunken jackass leftist mayor of Philadelphia will announce another lockdown in a matter of minutes. Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney is expected to close the city – again – because of the Chinese Wuhan Virus. (The lockdown is expected to last until New Year’s Day.)

Philadelphia city officials are set to announce new restriction on activities like indoor dining and gyms today at at 1 p.m. news conference.

My gym was closed for six months thanks to my piece of shite mayor and my a-hole governor. I am just now getting back into shape, and these pricks are going to shut it all down again? F**k. You.

Philadelphia officials on Friday were weighing new restrictions that could stop indoor dining, close gyms and theaters, ban indoor gatherings, and ask companies to return office employees to remote work, according to people briefed on a potential plan by Mayor Jim Kenney’s administration Friday.

All this will do is bankrupt small businesses, stress out the average citizen, and plummet the local economy. Buy hey, Philadelphia; keep voting for Democrats. Morons.

Retail stores, barbershops, and salons would be permitted to remain open — with enforcement of mask-wearing and limited capacity — and construction work would also continue. But the city would prohibit public and private indoor gatherings of any size.

Uh-huh. I absolutely believe this prick will still allow fans to attend Eagles games, though.

(And no, the Philadelphia Inquirer gets no links from me.)

Philly Mayor Is A Hypocritical Despot

Philadelphia Mayor Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney was pictured dining indoors, without wearing a mask – and likely drunk – in a Maryland restaurant. Philadelphia restaurants are still not allowed to offer indoor dining, thanks to Kenney’s draconian order; a decision which has forced many restaurants to shutter their doors for good.

Philadelphia’s mayor is facing criticism after a photo has emerged of him dining indoors in Maryland while his city’s restaurants are only permitted to serve customers outside.

The image of Jim Kenney – posted on Instagram by restaurateur Marc Vetri – was taken Sunday in the Chesapeake Bay region of Maryland, his office told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“Glad you’re enjoying indoor dining with no social distancing or mask wearing in Maryland tonight while restaurants here in Philly close, suffer and fight for every nickel just to survive,” Vetri wrote next to the photo. “I guess all your press briefings and your narrative of unsafe indoor dining don’t apply to you. Thank you for clearing it all up for us tonight.”

Vetri’s establishment is one of many which is struggling to stay afloat during ridiculous orders.

Kenney addressed the uproar Monday, writing in a tweet: “I know some are upset that I dined indoors at a restaurant in Maryland yesterday.

“I felt the risk was low because the county I visited has had fewer than 800 COVID-19 cases, compared to over 33,000 cases in Philadelphia. Regardless, I understand the frustration,” he said.

Yep, being a Democrat means never having to say you’re sorry. To think this binge drinking fascist wants to run for governor. Good luck with that, jerkoff.

City’s Closed: Moose Shoulda Told Ya

While most honest Americans can agree New York City’s Bill de Blasio is the worst mayor in America, Philadelphia’s Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney obviously wants a shot at the title. Kenney ordered all large-scale events in the city canceled until March 1, 2021.

The mayor is shutting down Philadelphia for another seven and a half months, for a lockdown of eleven and a half months total. The city, as we know it, will not survive.

In a dramatic step that underscores how long the coronavirus is expected to disrupt daily life, Philadelphia officials on Tuesday canceled all large-scale events in the city through February, including the Philadelphia Marathon, the Thanksgiving Day Parade, block parties, and other iconic traditions.

The 7½-month moratorium is one of various prevention measures that will have to stay in place until the population is vaccinated against the coronavirus, and that won’t happen before 2021, Health Commissioner Thomas Farley said.

Kenney is committing economic suicide. The marathon, the parades, and all the other events bring in millions upon millions of dollars. The city is already carrying a $16.2 billion – with a “b” – debt.

Although there is good news…

The city also said fans will not be allowed at Eagles games: If professional sports teams resume playing, spectators will be barred from the stands, though that is not part of the moratorium.

This fact alone almost makes the shutdown worth it. All the drunken, white trash Eagles fans won’t be able to head to the stadium at 5am, drink until 1pm, cheer on the anti-Semitic players, then vomit on their fellow Eagles fans and assault out-of-towners for an entire season.

Also, Vishnu forbid, if they win a title, there will be no parade. Eat a smorgasbord of dicks, Eagles fans.

The ban does not apply to demonstrations or other First Amendment-protected activities, private outdoor gatherings such as weddings or family picnics, or events on private property, including performance venues and stadiums, Kenney said.

So wait, you won’t let sports fans see their teams play, but a ten-hour concert by Hot Tuna is a-ok? Wow, this is so delicious. It’s as if this assclown has no idea what he’s doing, and has no plan to deal with the Chinese Wuhan Virus. Keep voting Democrat, Philadelphia: it’s worked great so far.

Philly Waives All Charges/Fines For Riots

Hat Tip: Sean Walsh, Philadelphia Inquirer

Philadelphia Mayor Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney has decided to waive all charges, citations, and fines for those who peacefully rioted, set fires, and assaulted police during the George Floyd Riots. (Congratulations George, everyone remembers you now, but only for the destruction they reaped in your name.)

The Democratic mayor of Philadelphia is waiving several hundred citations issued to city residents who violated curfews and failed to disperse as ordered by police during recent demonstrations supporting Black Lives Matter. In addition, Mayor Jim Kenney is tossing out scores of additional violations of the city’s civil codes.

So the dozens and dozens of police officers assaulted – including a few very seriously wounded – will see no justice, because leftist lives matter more than a police officer’s.

“Philadelphia’s Law Department and Office of Administrative Review previously recommended that the city drop most CVNs that had been enforced during the height of civil unrest in the city. Protests have persisted for more than a month in Philadelphia following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis in late May,” Philly Voice reported.

CVNs are not criminal offenses, as they only result in fines.

This motherfucker implemented an oppressive city beverage tax, raised property taxes, voted for red light cameras, and installed speed cameras throughout the city. Everything this prick does revolves around taxing the citizens into oblivion, and NOW he decides to waive millions of dollars in fines?

“In waiving these notices, I recognize that those issues are vitally important, that the pain of those marching is very real, and that their message — black lives matter — needs to be heard every day until systemic racism is fully eradicated from this city and nation,” he continued, Philly Voice reported. (H/TMis. Hum.)

Yes, their pain is so real they decided to burn down retail stores, looted those which weren’t on fire, threw rocks and bottles at cops, and literally ran over a police officer with their car. But by all means, dickhead, let them off scot-free.

The worst part of this is because this garbage town lies between New York City and Washington, D.C., it receives very little attention from the national media. The entire nation should know how this leftist clown is destroying this city.

Posted Without Comment

A friend of mine who works in another city department forwarded this to me. It’s an email from Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney regarding the George Floyd riots. I believe it gives outsiders a view into the mayor’s (and the city’s) worldview.

Black communities across the country and right here at home are in pain. I recognize that years of trauma and violence, caused by a long history of institutional racism, have led to this moment. Know that I believe in the cause of the protesters, and I stand behind them 100 percent.

I appreciate the work you are doing during an incredibly challenging time on several fronts—a pandemic, the most difficult budget situation in recent history, and the shared grief we’re facing now.

Nearly half of our diverse workforce are Black Philadelphians; we know that they and many other members of our City government family are personally affected by what’s happening on our streets. Know this: I am thinking of you and fighting for you. Our administration will work hard to dismantle our broken system and rebuild one that works for all Philadelphians.

A symbol of that work happened today. Overnight, we removed the statue of Frank Rizzo from the front of the Municipal Services Building. The statue has understandably enraged and hurt many Philadelphians, including those protesting the heinous murders of George Floyd and too many others.

The removal is a small step. We now need to do the hard but critical work of engaging in dialogue and making real changes that forge a path that leads to true equity for all residents. I am committed to doing this work in the pursuit of racial and economic justice so that our communities can heal and all residents can prosper in our great city.

Unfortunately, the last few days have also resulted in devastation and destruction of many commercial corridors throughout the city, so many of which are also in communities of color. These businesses and communities will need rebuilding even as we work on the deeper issues that led us to this place.

Over the next days, weeks, and months I will be engaging in dialogue with community members to help address injustices and build a more equitable city. It’s up to us as public servants to represent our city and set an example for our neighbors—both in today’s uncertain times and in the future as we recover together.

We will get through this and make real change together.

Yours in service,
Jim

Welcome To Taxadelphia

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has unveiled a plan to “recover” from the Chinese Wuhan virus and its subsequent destruction of an already failing economy. It may surprise you to know Kenney and his leftist City Council will embrace the tried-and-true policies of the Democratic Party.

Mayor Jim Kenney on Friday said his administration made “truly painful decisions” to propose tax hikes, layoffs, and service reductions and fill Philadelphia’s $649 million budget hole, but acknowledged the uphill climb he faces in winning support from City Council and the community.

Kenney was front row, center calling for the city to be shut down. He actively participated in closing businesses and threatened those who ignored his dictates. Now, an already poverty-stricken city is dealing with skyrocketing unemployment numbers, and this asshole thinks the solution is raising people’s taxes? This policy will force people to lose their homes; it will destroy people’s lives!

But the size of the city’s budget hole in 2009 was $108 million, Kenney noted. It is now facing a potential deficit five times as large.

Thanks exclusively to former Mayor Michael Nutter and Jim “I’ll Have Another Drink” Kenney. These assclowns ran up the deficit, and now Kenney is expecting to balance the budget on the backs of the citizens? Go f**k yourself!

Council President Darrell L. Clarke acknowledged that some tax increases may be necessary. Kenney’s $4.9 billion spending plan, which replaces a more ambitious $5.2 billion budget proposed in March, also includes increases in the parking tax and the wage tax for suburban commuters, and freezes in planned reductions to business taxes and the wage tax rate for residents.

Our taxes are already astronomical; most notably the property taxes, which are crippling. In 2016, this piece of garbage levied America’s first beverage tax on the city, claiming it would raise $91 million in revenue a year. Where did that money go, Jimmy?

Hundreds of city employees will lose their jobs, with some reductions occurring by June; more would follow in August. The city has more than 25,000 full-time employees.

With regards to the service reductions, our trash still gets picked up – and spilled onto the street – once a week, but recycling is now every two weeks. The city public pools will be closed this summer – a necessity in the poor neighborhoods in the summer – and many recreational programs will likely shut their doors. Hopefully, this won’t affect Julia’s dance classes, but I fear it will.

This is what happens when a city enjoys sixty-eight uninterrupted years of Democratic regimes.

Philly Enjoys A Tall, Cool Glass Of STFU

It has been two years since leftist Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney forced a “soda tax” on the city’s residents. Thanks to Kenney, a man who knows his way around a beverage, the price of a two-liter bottle of soda is now at least one dollar more, and the average tax is 1.5 cents per ounce.

So, how beneficial has the tax been for the city? Take a wild guess.

When the soda tax was first announced, workers at Pepsi took a hit. “With sales slumping because of the new Philadelphia sweetened beverage tax, Pepsi said Wednesday that it will lay off 80 to 100 workers at three distribution plants that serve the city,” philly.com reported in March of 2017.

I have little sympathy for Pepsi here, because instead of tolerating the layoffs, they should have packed their bags and moved to a more tax-friendly city. Pepsi is still here, gleefully accepting the taxes which are ruining their business. Those layoffs are on you, Pepsi. Own it.

And last month, the local outlet reported that the owner of Acme Markets, who has 16 stores in Philadelphia, had to cut employees’ hours because of the tax: “The beverage tax fell on about 4,000 items. In Acme city stores, soda sales dropped as much as 80 percent. Sales of other items covered by the tax, such as juices, creamers and energy drinks, were down 30 percent, and the number of customers declined by 5 percent. Philly stores cut an average of 150 to 200 employee hours per week, resulting in lighter paychecks for employees.”

I have a little more sympathy for Acme, because they don’t have as many options as Pepsi does. Kenney’s original claim was the soda tax was meant to curb obesity. I could have bought that tripe if he didn’t immediately state diet drinks would be taxed as well. Like most leftists, Kenney lies every time he opens his bloated face hole.

But the hit the employees took did not equate to a win for the “health” of its citizens. As noted by Hotair, Philadelphia residents were traveling outside the city to avoid the tax hike on their drinks.

Well, duh. I know I am surrounded by white trash, thugs, and overall morons, but the people of this city protested with their wallets. The Bensalem Shop Rite, which is outside the city, is a fifteen-minute drive. I gleefully head there once every couple of weeks for beverages. It’s a chance to pass my father-in-law’s cemetery, where I occasionally stop by, and an opportunity to give Kenney and his tax the middle finger.

Kenney And The Debts

Mayor Jim Tipsy Kenney

Philadelphia’s despicable, possibly inebriated mayor has forced his soda tax on the peasants; a tax which was meant to tax sugary drinks, but taxes all beverages except bottled water. Dishonesty at its finest.

We knew it was coming, but Philadelphia’s new beverage tax is still giving some shoppers sticker shock. Shoppers on Monday were checking receipts to gauge the impact of the new beverage tax.

Chuck Andrews picked up a $1.77 gallon jug of tea, got home and looked at his receipt. “When I read the receipt I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. I paid more in tax than I did for the product,'” Andrews said.

The tax on the $1.77 gallon of tea was $1.92 cents.

A customer at a Save-A-Lot on Woodhaven Road snapped a picture of a 12-pack of diet green tea and the price surge of what normally costs $4.99. It’s now $8.03.

Jim Kenney is the most liberal mayor this city has ever seen, and like most Philly mayors, he is galactically incompetent. Luckily, I live a few miles from the city limits, so I’ll be making our beverage purchases in the suburbs. Barring that, I drive through Abington and Cheltenham on the way to work. Those townships will receive my hard-earned dollars.
