Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has had enough of the Chinese Wuhan Virus, stating he will never implement another lockdown.
In the spring, Governor DeSantis issued a stay-at-home order which asked Floridians to limit their movement, unless they needed to go to work at an essential business or make a trip to the grocery store or pharmacy. Many shops, boutiques, and hair and nail salons shut down, and restaurants were only allowed to serve take-out. Through planned phases, the state’s economy has gradually been able to ramp back up.
DeSantis seems like a straight shooter, but far too many of these politicians were too worried about what the media would say instead of following common sense precautions.
Governor DeSantis did not confirm when the state would be reopening the bars and nightclubs, or under what conditions, just that his team will “address it and move with it.”
“We will never do any of these lockdowns again,” the governor said. He brought up Peru, claiming the country has been in lockdown with military enforcement since March, adding how its has the highest per capita COVID-19 fatality rate in the world.
Therein lies the problem. The Chinese Wuhan Virus was unpredictable, but eventually even morons like myself knew most Americans were not going to die from it. Protect the elderly and those with comorbidities, and the spread will minimize.
It’s just a shame it took DeSantis so long to realize it.
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.
The USS New Jersey, the most decorated battleship in U.S. Navy, will be temporarily closed after Labor Day, because the Chinese Wuhan Virus is keeping tourists and history buffs away.
Smaller crowds due to the COVID-19 pandemic will force the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial to temporarily close after Labor Day.
In a statement from CEO Phil Rowan, the museum announced “the volume of visitors has been much less than normal” due to the pandemic and that “With just a fraction of our normal revenue coming in daily, we can no longer continue to operate indefinitely at this level.”
For those people within driving distance of Philadelphia, the Battleship New Jersey/Museum I would highly recommend it. The site is across the river in Camden, NJ, but it’s well worth the trip.
Plus, the Camden Aquarium is right down the street, so you’d have a full day. The battleship tours are amazing, and the ship itself is awesome.
The Navy’s most decorated battleship has been operated as a museum on the Camden waterfront since 2001. It will still offer tours and events through September 7th; after that, it will close until “such time that the Board deems it viable to re-open.” Most of its planned events had to be scrubbed because of the emergency orders imposed by Governor Murphy because of the coronavirus, so just a skeleton crew of security and maintenance personnel will be retained after Labor Day; according to the board of trustees, “by taking proactive action, the Board believes this temporary decision will result in a long-term benefit to the ship.”
Therein lies the problem. The ship is shutting down because Phil Murphy is arguably the second-worst governor in America. He’s a tyrant and a liar, but it’s New Jersey, so he’ll be easily reelected.
Devious, despicable, disgusting Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer stated she is “glad” the Big Ten conference will not be playing football in the fall. Pretty smart move for a state which has two perennial contenders – Michigan and Michigan State – and lives on football
The Great Villianess of Big Ten fans everywhere, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, has officially spoken on the conference canceling fall football and is “glad” at the direction taken by her partner in crime, commissioner Kevin Warren.
“I was glad that the Big Ten took the leadership role that they did,” Whitmer told members of the media on Monday, MLive reports. “Obviously they’ve got huge universities and they’ve got people who are on all of these campuses that are working to try to address the COVID pandemic that we’re all struggling with.”
“Football is a very intimate sport where you are up in one another’s faces,” Whitmer added. “That’s what makes it inherently risky, so that’s my concern. I love football. I wanted to be a sports broadcaster. I don’t like not seeing football this fall, but I’m glad that the Big Ten took the leadership they did and the (Michigan) High School Sports Association did as well.”
Personally, I would like to see all pro, and most college, sports cancelled until 2021, and I’m a college football fan. The shortened seasons of MLB, the NHL, the NBA, etc. have been awful, and the ratings have proven that theory.
That said, Whitmer is an idiot. Sure, she may be glad about Big 10 football going on hiatus, but Michigan football fans – and there are millions of them – are not going to remember this when the twat is up for reelection.

The “Cheers” bar at Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace is closing after two decades in business, CEO Markus Ripperger confirmed. The iconic bar is a replica of the set for the popular sitcom “Cheers,” which aired from 1982 to 1993.
It appears the bar was another casualty of the coronavirus pandemic. Ripperger said the pandemic and lack of assistance from the landlord played into the decision to close, according to CBS Boston.
The “Cheers” bar is set to close on August 30. The location that originally inspired the iconic series, however, will remain open on Boston’s Beacon Street.
Go fook yourselves, China. The damage you assholes have delivered to America – and the world – will come back upon you, hopefully ten-fold.
New York Oberführer Andrew Cuomo has decreed the state’s movie theaters will be closed indefinitely due to the Chinese Wuhan Virus. This as AMC Theatres plans to reopen Thursday.
Movie theaters will remain closed indefinitely in New York state, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Monday, because he said cinemas are less essential and come with a higher risk of virus transmission among patrons. The decision means that, at this point, theaters in the country’s two largest markets of New York City and Los Angeles will not be open for AMC Theatres planned reopening Thursday.
While I’m not a fan of Cuomo’s continuing fascism, but I am a fan of Hollywood missing out on billions and billions of dollars.
Cuomo revealed his current thinking during a Monday briefing, during which he announced that gyms would be allowed to reopen August 24.
“It’s the level of risk. If you look at our metrics, we started with the most essential business that posed the least risk. And then it was the gradation to the least essential businesses that posed the most risk,” Cuomo said, according to Deadline.
The triumvirate of the Chinese Wuhan Virus, Andrew Cuomo, and Bill de Blasio have destroyed New York state and New York City. Writer James Altucher wrote as much in this compelling post, “NYC Is Dead Forever… Here’s Why.”
Altucher is correct here. Between the virus, the riots, and the economic devastation, I think NYC as we know it will never come back. I feel badly for the good people who will be trapped there. Hopefully they can flee before it’s too late.
An employee of Toronto’s Brass Rail Strip Club may have transmitted the Chinese Wuhan Virus to nearly 500 patrons during a five-day period. I mean, if you’re going to catch the Wu-Flu, this is probably the best way to get it.
The City of Toronto says about 550 people may have been exposed to COVID-19 at a downtown strip club earlier this month.
Toronto Public Health says it is notifying people who visited the Brass Rail Tavern at 701 Yonge St. about a potential exposure.
Officials say an employee who tested positive for the virus was at the club on these dates and times:
Aug. 4 from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 5
Aug. 5 from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Aug. 6
Aug. 7 from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Aug. 8
Aug. 8 from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 9
“As a precaution, [Toronto Public Health] is advising anyone who attended the Brass Rail Tavern during these dates and times to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms for the 14 days after their last visit during this time period,” the city said in a news release.
Dear Lord, I know these good people may have caught the Wuhan – hopefully from a lap dance – and I know the Toronto Maple Leafs saw yet another quick exit – shock – from the NHL playoffs, but haven’t they suffered enough?
CNN burped out an article – no, I’m not linking it, because CNN is hot garbage – fretting about sex workers in Tijuana, Mexico, and their chances of catching the Wuhan Virus. Whatever will this trash organization do when the Wuhan is gone?
Tijuana, Mexico’s famed red-light district, called Zona Norte, sits a stone’s throw from the US-Mexico border. Calle Coahuila, the area’s main strip, is normally teeming with a frenetic action bathed in neon light.
Women in short dresses and the highest of high heels stand along the sidewalks, beckoning groups of men to spend some time and money with them. Massive strip clubs, some with hotels attached, act as de facto brothels.
Well I know where I’m spending summer vacation next year!
Many specifically cater to the thousands of Americans who cross the border from California each month, looking for a kind of fun that can’t be found legally in the United States, except maybe in some Nevada counties where prostitution is permitted.
The drivel goes on for a few more paragraphs, whining about the sex workers and their chances of getting Wuhan Virus. There’s very little about chlamydia, herpes, or AIDS, but plenty of the Wuhan. So apparently CNN is more concerned with the Wu-Flu than something that can actually kill these young women.
Bravo CNN< you hit another one out of the f**king park!
In response to the Wuhan Virus, American colleges are cracking down on parties, get-togethers, and literally everything fun about the college experience.
As they struggle to salvage some semblance of a campus experience this fall, U.S. colleges are requiring promises from students to help contain the coronavirus — no keg parties, no long road trips and no outside guests on campus.
So why would anyone return to college? Honestly, the Wuhan has been the best remedy for the “necessity” of college. Why would anyone pay $50,000 a year for online classes? The entire thing – with the exception of the sciences – is an absolutely money-grab.
No kidding. Administrators warn that failure to wear masks, practice social distancing and avoid mass gatherings could bring serious consequences, including getting booted from school.
So they’re taking your kids’ money, and if they break the rules, they’ll expel your child… without a refund. I was forced to go to college, and I had a decent time. My grades weren’t the best, but it was fun. That said, with tuition today, I don’t know why anyone would want that much debt for a scroll of paper.
The Wuhan Virus and the fear-mongering which accompanied it has decimated the national economy and local economies as well. Most big cities are reeling from both revenue losses, and the inaction of their politicians. Many companies are considering shuttering their doors.
High-end handbag maker Valentino is suing to get out of its lease on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, a vacated Barneys New York still sits empty on Madison Avenue just a block over, while bankrupted luxury department store chain Neiman Marcus is shutting its doors for good on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach.
As the coronavirus pandemic brings tourism to a temporary standstill, leaves consumers holed up at home and puts millions out of work, America’s glitziest and most expensive retail districts are losing tenants, and rents are in a free fall…
You may find this difficult to believe, but New York City mayor Bill de Blasio is dousing gasoline on an already mammoth blaze.
It is already beginning to play out with the changes taking place throughout the New York City retail scene, serving as a leading indicator of what’s to come in other major metros, real estate analysts predict.
De Blasio’s mismanagement on a ll fronts will singlehandedly destroy New York City as we know it. It will soon be as unlivable as it was during the Koch and Dinkins regimes.
During the second quarter ended June 30, average asking rents along 16 major retail corridors in Manhattan declined for the eleventh consecutive quarter, falling to $688 per square foot, according to a report from the commercial real estate services firm CBRE. The drop marked the first time since 2011 that prices dropped below $700, the firm said, representing an 11.3% decline from a year ago.
It’s interesting CNBC mentions nothing about the defunding of the NYPD, which is a major contributor to the city’s impending demise. I worry for the people who will be trapped there when the Big Apple goes the way of Escape from New York.
