Cold Hearted: NYC demorats propose surcharge for online purchases

Government “orders” people to stay home and businesses to shutdown. People are then forced to then make mostly online purchases.

So what does government do? Tax you for making online purchases.

According to NBC New York, Assemblyman Robert Carroll (demorat) has proposed a $3 surcharge on packages they ordered online, with the exception for medicine and food.

Apparently this money is needed to support the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which is facing a budget crisis can’t properly manage tax dollars.

Read the whole NBC story here.

You ready to here Carroll’s justification for this surcharge…get ready for it…

“…argued that the surcharge would incentivize New Yorkers to support small local businesses instead of buying from corporations like Amazon or Walmart.”

Libera logic in a nutshell:
Government forces people to stay at home.
Government forces businesses to shutdown. (Walmarts exempted)
As a result of government-mandated closures, many small business are forced to close.
People move to shop online.
Government to tax your online purchases.
Government: Support small businesses!

What a cruel, cruel scam.

Unreal: NYC reportedly spent $12M per inch of snow plowed last winter

From NY Post: Despite paltry amounts of snow last winter, NYC taxpayers really got plowed.

The city paid roughly $12 million for every inch of snow pushed to the curb, new data shows — 12 times the amount the city laid out per inch in 2003.

But don’t only blame government waste for the eye-popping figure — $57 million spent on 4.8 inches, tucked into an Independent Budget Office review.

Blame the mild weather, analyst Daniel Huber told The Post. “It didn’t snow very much,” he said, “and some of that money was spent on prep — just like every year — whether snow falls or not.”

Those fixed costs for the Sanitation Department run the gamut, according to Huber — from training drivers to repairing plows to replenishing the salt supply.

Snow removal is so expensive because of all the specialized equipment it takes to open up the city’s 19,000 lane-miles of roadway, Sanitation spokesman Josh Goodman told The Post.

There aren’t only 2,300 plows and sets of chains to put on the garbage trucks but mammoth ice machines that melt 60 tons of snow an hour, smaller plows for bike lanes and intersections, and front-end loaders to move 300,000 tons of salt. “This isn’t like shoveling your walkway,” Goodman said. “It’s an enormous, complicated operation for which we spend all year planning.”

Then throw in the incidentals of any given year that jack up the per-inch cost: maybe an ice storm that depletes the salt pile; or a weekend snow dump, which comes with pricey OT; a forecasted blizzard that brings out the trucks but turns into a dusting.

Over the past two decades, the per-inch cost jumped from $1 million in 2003 to $4 million in 2012 to $12 million in 2020 — mostly because of snowfall amounts and higher salt and fuel prices.

Read the whole story here.

I tried to find what other cities spend per inch for snow removal.

In 2015, Minneapolis spent $202,000 per inch while St. Paul spent $137,000. In 2013 the city of Chicago spent $1.03 million per inch. While I’m sure each city has different methods for calucalting their costs per inch (and vary by equipment and snowfall, etc.) you can see that $12 MILLION per inch is still an astronomical amount.

But hey, when the money is not coming out of your wallet its rather easy to spend.

Comrade de Blasio’s wife dances for #WeAreFamily campaign which benefits Chicom enablers WHO

Chirlane McCray shared a cringe-worthy vide of her dancing away to support a “social impact enterprise” that benefits WHO. Watch:

The “social impact enterprise” is called Unity Strong, founded by singer Kim Sledge. They have a song you can download in benefit of the WHO Foundation. From their web site: “…with the support of the World Health Organization, to address the most pressing global health challenges of today and tomorrow, including the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The “We Are Family” campaign was announced by Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, General-Director at WHO. Remember this guy?

Dr. Tedros and his Chicom buddy

He’s the good doctor who helped the Chicoms deceive the world about their knowledge of the Wuhan virus and then warned us not to politicize Wuhan virus.

Instead of dancing and raising money for a corrupt organizaton that conspired with the Chicoms, Chirlane should be raising money for the 1,000+ restaurants that have permanently closed in NYC.

Yet it’s easier to virtue signal on Twitter than it is to acknowledge your husband’s policies that have killed the livelihood of so many NYC business owners.

New York demorats use Wuhan virus to punish select groups of citizens

Rules for thee but not for me

Since the beginning of the Wuhan virus, we have seen the double standards demorats have implemented in their desire to “flatten the curve.”

See the following examples:

But of course: Music stars from Wuhan virus-infected states get pass on NYC quarantine rules for VMAs
Wuhan virus being used as political warfare? Double standards prove it
Rules for thee but not for me: Mayor Lightfoot defends getting haircut under social distancing order

Once their double standards are in place without challenge from the media or sheeple voters, demorats can target specific groups as they see fit without consequences. See the following examples:

De Blasio’s NYC: Cafe receives summons for having their doors open!
De Blasio’s NYC: NYPD entering private residential property to crackdown on Jewish gatherings

After the media’s proclamation of Biden’s so-called win, while New York politicians celebrated in the streets, the targeting of Jewish communities in NYC went on:

If demorats believe they are truly immune to government overreach, I’ve got a beautiful island in Oklahoma to sell you. The sad thing is that demorats WILL NEVER realize this one easy lesson:

I’d close the door on ’em and tell them to come back when you got a warrant.

De Blasio’s NYC: Cafe receives summons for having their doors open!

New York City STILL has major restrictions in place for its residents. Some restaurants can only do takeout orders.

Leaving their front door open is a big NO NO.

I don’t know how any NYC business can survive this madness.

UPDATE: Last night I saw that this was a Jewish restaurant that is part of de Blasio’s “nonsensical and tyrannical policies specifically targeting the Jewish community.”

There’s a GoFundMe set up for the restaurant and here’s the message on the donation site: “We are taking your donations and splitting them between several restaurants to create a tab for volunteer ambulance drivers (members of Hatzolah) so that they can stop and get themselves meals between calls.”

Mayor de Blasio to fine people who refuse to wear masks

From The Guardian: New York City will impose fines on people who refuse to wear a face covering in public, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday, as he announced that the rate of positive tests for the coronavirus had climbed above 3% in the city for the first time in months.

The latest citywide daily positive test rate was 3.25%, De Blasio said, a rise attributed in part to nine zip codes city health officials say have seen worrying increases in cases. In some hotspots the positivity rate was 17%.

De Blasio said officials would first offer free masks to anyone caught not wearing one. If the person refuses, the mayor told reporters, they will face an unspecified fine. “Our goal, of course, is to give everyone a free face mask,” the mayor said. “We don’t want to fine people, but if we have to we will.”

In the first surge of the pandemic, in March and April, New York became not just the US hotspot but the world leader for coronavirus cases. City and state officials are anxious not to see the progress of recent months go to waste.

More than 7 million people have been infected in the US and more than 200,000 have died. According to Johns Hopkins University, New York state has recorded more than 450,000 cases and more than 25,000 deaths.

The new rule on masks extends across the city and echoes a policy imposed this month by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which is controlled by the New York governor, Andrew Cuomo.

Under that policy, commuters who refuse to wear a mask on public transit such as buses, trains and the subway system face a $50 fine.

On Tuesday, De Blasio said the seven-day rolling Covid-19 positivity average remained at 1.38%, though he added that this week the citywide average had risen to 3%.

“For the first time in months, you’re going to see a daily number over 3%,” De Blasio said. “Obviously, everyone is concerned about that. That is something we all have to work on together to address and something that says to us we have to be on high alert to make sure we fight back this challenge.”
