Mayor Bill de Blasio would have made a great communist commissar during the time of the Soviet Union.
His authoritarianism is better suited for a country that treats its people like chattle, disrespects their individualism, abuses their trust, and prevents them from living life to their fullest.
That explains why he continues, against the science, to prevent New Yorkers from going out for a nice meal if they want to, in a restaurant that seats them inside.
While schoolchildren eat lunch indoors in New York City, adults are prevented from doing the same thing.
Meanwhile, if restaurants don’t get to open to indoor dining soon, scores of them will have keep their doors shut for good.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has made it clear that there are no plans to reopen indoor dining anytime soon and restaurant owners on the brink of permanent closure want answers.
The owner of Staten Island's Max's Es-ca, Max Calicchio, told FOX Business' Kristina Partsinevelos that he's stuck with the decision to either close his doors completely or open indoor dining against city regulation.
'It's not viable for us to be around if we have to wait for a vaccine,' he said. 'We can't make our bills and pay staff. We're going to be closed.'
De Blasio mentioned potentially holding off indoor dining until a coronavirus vaccine is available. So Max's Es-ca along with at least 100 other restaurants are now looking to file a class-action lawsuit against the city.
'It's very scary,' Deluca's Italian Restaurant owner Rob Deluca said. 'There are 25,000 restaurants in New York City who will most likely face the same fate together.'
Restaurant owners are also questioning the consistency of these city mandates since other businesses like gyms, retail stores and bowling alleys are all allowed to open indoors.
Meanwhile, millionaire Bill ‘Two Homes’ de Blasio is continuing to get paid, live his life off taxpayer-funded per diem, and remain fat, sassy, and aloof.
Hey, New Yorkers — how d’ya like your mayor now? You probably didn’t think he’d turn into such a Nazi over a virus, did you?
