How much PPP money do ya think they got?

Everybody wants to be a martyr.

And they don't care who or how many others they kill to be one.

They could at least feign compliance.

 Just like you aren't supposed to post illegal things on the internet, if you don't make any noise, GFM won't care, they got paid.

That's kinda why I didn't try to skip jury duty last time around.

If there had just been a fine, I'd have said to hell with it and paid the damn thing.

Then I reas further and got to the part about possible jail time and though, "Well, there went that idea."

\I don't have a problem with jury duty.
\\I do, however, have a problem with it during a pandemic while I live in a Republican infested area where almost no one wears a mask.
\\\Damn heathens.

The action comes after an ABRA inspector found violations to the city's indoor mask mandate and vaccine card entry requirement during four separate inspections over six days in January.

Seems a little excessive.
 
2022-01-27 11:31:13 PM  
Yes. PULL LIQUOR LICENSE.

If they break that. Board up their place and arrest the owner.

That's how the hotel gyms in NYC do it.   Hold up any scrap of paper because the desk person won't scrutinize it.   (Assuming the desk person is at the desk.   Half the time the only barrier to entry is a strongly worded sign saying you must show proof of vaccination.)

Did you know they already demand ID to enter most bars and clubs? Omigod, the tyrrany is REAL!


Next thing you know they'll say you can't drive simply because you have a BAC of 0.2%!

TYRANNY!

Yeah, they should have been in compliance after the first violation.

You'd think GoFundMe would have something in their TOS about not allowing proceeds to be used for illegal purposes or to break the laws of local jurisdictions, but I guess you'd be wrong.
 
2022-01-27 11:52:15 PM  
why not make it a "i want covid" bar ??
 
2022-01-27 11:53:31 PM  
I'm pretty sure requiring a bit of paper that isn't standardized creates a bar to individual pursuit of trade in the many states, as in Article 4 Section 2 of the constitution. And we're not about to get Congress to enact anything that would create a national standard that would comply with Article 4 Section 1.

When I say something is probably unconstitutional, I've checked the actual constitution and not my feelings.

I heard they're hiding kidnapped children in the basement to sell to members of congress.

Pull their liquor license?  Nah, THAT ain't gonna stop them from finding creative ways to serve alcohol.  Case & point??  Remember the business, in the news somewhat recently, that kept repeatedly violating the city's COVID regulations & getting fine after fine until the city cut off their power so they would stop doing business??  Well, the owners THEN got a generator to keep the lights on inside!  F#ck me???  Nooooo...F#ck YOU!

Those were too old.  The adrenaline metabolites start to get too gamey after a certain age and then they have to unload them on some forehead guy from orlando or something.

The Fark GED law brigade has had better and more consistent takes with reality than the folks calling them the ged lawyers, so you might wanna check your perspective.

Do what employers around here do when they ask prospective employees for proof of legal residency: take a gander at whatever crayon-scrawled scrap of toilet paper is offered and say, "I'm no document expert, so looks good to me".
