San Francisco Weighing Yet Another Ban, This One is the Most Absurd Yet

Published

on

A proposal was introduced on Tuesday in the city of San Francisco that seeks yet another ridiculous ban on something completely harmless, which has become sort of a hallmark for liberals as of late.

First it was guns, then it was sodas, next came straws, and now we have folks wanting to ban employee cafeterias. Yes, employee cafeterias.

Why are they attempting to do this ban? To strip people’s freedom of choice and force them to go out to eat in an effort to boost the city’s restaurant industry.

“People will have to go out and (eat) lunch with the rest of us,” Aaron Peskin, a San Francisco supervisor who co-sponsored the proposal, told The San Francisco Examiner.

“This is also about a cultural shift,” Supervisor Ahsha Safai, who proposed the ban, told The San Francisco Chronicle. “We don’t want employees biking or driving into their office, staying there all day long and going home. This is about getting people out of their office, interacting with the community and adding to the vibrancy of the community.”

But some employees at San Francisco tech giants targeted by the proposal need free or reduced-cost meals typically offered at the cafeterias, Sam Schneidman, who works in San Francisco, told KNTV.

Is it just me or is San Francisco fully transformed into some sort of wacky Communist wonderland?

Are you an introvert who feels happiest when you are keeping to yourself, minding your own business and living your own life? Tough noogies. You’re going to go out and mingle with the rest of the hive or else!

That’s essentially the message these people seem to be sending out. They want to force you to be part of the community. News flash. If you have to force someone to be part of your community by getting rid of something, that means your community sucks. Period.

“A lot of people who rely on the benefit aren’t necessarily highly compensated engineers and it’s something that a lot of tech workers depend on,” Schneidman told the station.

Anthony Myint, co-owner of the Perennial restaurant in the city’s mid-market neighborhood, told the Chronicle he expected a brisk lunchtime business, but instead sees only a few customers for lunch each day.

“We misunderstood the pervasiveness of the company cafeterias inside,” Myint told the publication. He probably would have chosen another location had he known, he said.

“You can’t compete with free,” Gwyneth Borden, executive director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, told the Chronicle.

This is just pure insanity. The whole reason behind this legislation serves to undermine the free market system. People have free choice and to take that away from them to force them to support businesses is morally wrong. If a company wants to be successful, they have to be competitive. If they can’t be competitive or offer people something enticing enough to draw them out, then they don’t need to be in business.

Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.

Protests And Riots Now Being Blamed On Coronavirus Shutdowns

Published

on

All of the violence, rioting, and looting that is exploding across the country due to the death of George Floyd is now being blamed on another set of factors that might help explain why things are so intense. According to psychologists and pandemic researchers, things are so bad right now due to everyone being cooped up for months during the coronavirus lockdowns that had taken place across the United States earlier this Spring. Historian John Berry, who has written numerous books on the subject of past pandemics, said, “I do think the pandemic aggravated things.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Tension built up during the lockdowns due to the massive joblessness — especially for those making less than $40,000 a year, African Americans disproportionately getting sick from the virus, and people being shut in the house for months, Berry said. “One can’t understate the role of pandemic in the protests,” said Alec MacGillis, former Baltimore Sun reporter, on Twitter. “For weeks, people have been told to stay home. They’ve had no social contact with large groups, which humans crave. Now, they can.” If you take a look at Minnesota, where the incident with Floyd took place, folks had been social distancing there for almost two full months. There were no bars, no hair salons, or restaurants or movie theaters open during that time. In fact, they weren’t allowed to open until the beginning of June, and even then there are a lot of restrictions still in effect. “No doubt in my mind that the pandemic has eroded people’s capacity to tolerate additional frustration and anxiety,” Dr. Kenneth Eisold, a practicing psychoanalyst, told the Washington Examiner. “I also suspect that the riots reflect an unconscious protest against the lockdown.” Dr. Joe Pierre, a health science clinical professor with UCLA, said…

Rod Rosenstein Says If He Knew Then, What He Knows Now, He Wouldn’t Have Signed Carter Page FISA Warrant

Published

on

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has come out and admitted that if he possessed the knowledge he now has, back before signing the FISA warrant for Carter Page, he would never have signed it. Well, you know what they say. Hindsight is 20/20. Everything had a tendency to look clearer when you reflect back on it after the fact. The problem, of course, is that by then it is too late. This is why it is important to operate from a set of well-grounded principles that will guide you when things seem unclear. Just a thought. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Rosenstein, who also appointed special counsel Robert Mueller while overseeing the Russia investigation after then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, testified in a public session with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that he was unaware of the serious flaws with the Page FISA process that were uncovered by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. “If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the warrant application?” Graham asked. Rosenstein replied: “No, I would not.” Graham went on to ask if the reason why he wouldn’t have signed it looking back on it now was because Mr. Horowitz found that exculpatory information was withheld from the court. “Among other reasons, yes sir,” Rosenstein said. The report from Horowitz slammed the Justice Department and the FBI for what it called “17 significant errors and ommissions” related directly to the FISA warrants against Page in 2016 and 2017, along with the bureau’s heavy reliance upon the dossier put together by British spy Christopher Steele, which is also considered to be flawed. Steele was commissioned to put together the package containing his “research” by Fusion GPS, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign,…
