Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
Governors proclaim chicken wings are not a meal
The pandemic has made Governors so power hungry that they are now telling restaurants what counts as a meal.
States like California and New York are forcing restaurants and bars to only serve alcohol with meals.
That prompted some establishments to add special menu items so that patrons who just wanted a drink didn’t have to order an entire meal.
But now that tactic has caught the eye of Comrade-Governors Newsom and Cuomo.
They have decided that not only is it within their power to tell restaurants if they are allowed to serve drinks and food, but these Governors also claim the power to dictate what counts as a meal.
The dictator of California officially decreed that buffalo chicken wings are not a meal.
Nor are reheated frozen entrees, “pizza bites (as opposed to a pizza)”, or “any small portion of a dish that may constitute a main course when it is not served in a full portion or when it is intended for sharing in small portions.”
And the dictator of New York said the food available has to be "More than just hors d'oeuvres, chicken wings, you had to have some substantive food. The lowest level of substantive food were sandwiches."
There you have it, sandwiches are a meal, chicken wings are not. So says the politburo.
Woman pepper-sprays couple for not wearing masks during picnic
A couple went to a San Diego park to have lunch.
They set up their picnic, properly socially distanced from other park-goers, and removed their masks to eat.
That’s when they began being harassed by an older woman. She flipped them off, and yelled obscenities about them not wearing masks in public.
Then this woman walked up to the picnicking couple and pepper sprayed them.
It was all caught on camera by another person at the park. As the culprit walked off, she claimed she was defending herself… against people in an outdoor park, minding their own business, eating lunch.
So now, because of the Covid hysteria, people think it’s “defense” to physically attack strangers for not wearing a mask. That’s where we are as a society.
The worst part of the whole China-Flu situation to me has been observing how easily my fellow Americans handed their right to LIBERTY over to dictatorial government officials lusting to control EVERY aspect of their lives.
$1000 fine here in NYS. Except exemptions for cops, the very people most likely to come in contact with infected people, such as the one who wrote me a ticket recently. Thought about mentioning that, as he was standing about 2' away, but decided it was wiser to cut my losses.
