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.

Obama’s Border Patrol Chief Says Trump Isn’t Making Up Border Emergency

Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan: Democrats’ battle against the border wall is driven by identity politics. President Trump declaration of a national emergency to build a border barrier is necessary according to Obama’s Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.

The more the Democrats fights securing the border, the larger the price they will pay in 2020.

Per the Daily Caller:

Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.

“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.

“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.”

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”

The Democrats think they know so much more and are much better informed than those who are actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.

This is not the first time Mark Morgan explained that a border barrier was necessary. In a mid-January interview he stated:

“Before I was the chief of border patrol I was with the FBI,” Morgan explained. “And I actually supervised MS-13 gang force in southern California. We used to catch them on surveillance wires, and they would laugh, MS-13 gang members would laugh [at] how easy it was to go back between Mexico and the U.S. border.”

(…) The other day when they had the national press conference, and they [border patrol agents] got up, and they said the wall works, they’re right,” said Morgan. “And it’s not based on a personal political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of petty party politics

MAGA MADNESS: Loony Lib Pulls Gun on Trump Fan Over Hat

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

MAGA

What started out as a social media joke about the lunacy of the liberal left has now turned into a bonafide phenomenon called Trump Derangement Syndrome, for which we are too intrinsically intwined to have any true perspective as if yet.

Try to remember the shock and horror that you felt when you first saw the bloody, decapitated head of the President at the end of Kathy Griffin’s outstretched arm.  The steely, cold stare that she gave the camera was purely chilling.  Her eyes belied no emotion at the heinous and callous effigy in her hands, that she herself chose to create.  She had the uncaring and unflinching look of a cold-blooded predator.

It was unnerving to witness.  The photo-realistic, bloody head was enough to form a brick somewhere deep in my guts, but seeing Kathy Griffin’s absolute void of emotion struck me in ways that no political imagery had before.

Now, remember that this was all nearly two years ago now.  Today, in 2019, were we to see something like this, it wouldn’t have nearly the effect.  We’d scoff, and scold, but in the end we would chalk it up to “liberals being liberals”.

It is this passage of time, and the erosion of dignity within the democratic party, that has led to madness such as this:

Police in Bowling Green, Kentucky, say James Phillips was arrested after witnesses said he pulled a gun inside a Sam’s Club outlet because the victim was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

A police report notes that the suspect admitted to getting upset over the headwear and that he “flipped off” the MAGA hat wearer, according to WBKO-TV 13.

The victim, Terry Pierce, told police he had a right to wear the hat. “I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to,” the Sam’s Club customer said.

Pierce added that Phillips, “Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, ‘It’s a good day for you to die.’”

Phillips claimed that he told Pierce to put the gun down so they could settle the argument like men, but Pierce ran out of the store, instead.

I must remind you once again that we are all Americans, regardless of our political affiliation.  It’s time to start acting like it.

Sensibility is the only cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
