Saints protect us from Attorney General Cuomo. He is rumored to be under consideration by President-Elect Biden for the top Justice Department post. The last thing the country needs is King Andrew in Washington. His administration has resorted to heavy government controls and regulations. More of the same can be expected from him as AG. A heartless northern liberal has no place in the cabinet. He would spread his misguided policies across the country. Biden preaches unification, not Cuomo’s brand of divisiveness. Keep him out of the federal bureaucracy.
Governor Cuomo has spoken of a Footrace to distribute the vaccine. That is his cavalier comment to the press. It is far more than a footrace, Andrew. It is a life or death struggle to inoculate New Yorkers before more perish from the virus. It is also a race to end your arbitrary shutdown of schools and vulnerable businesses. We are weary of your off the cuff commentary. Think before you mouth off. The voters will long remember your flippancy in the midst of suffering.
Expression of Remorse should start with the Governor. On Christmas Day Cuomo pardoned 21 state convicts who showed remorse and rehabilitation. Charity begins at home, King Andrew. You need to examine your conscience and show regret for the suffering and unbridled hardship you have caused New Yorkers. Do you regret fostering the deaths of thousands of vulnerable nursing home residents? Show contrition for your misdeeds. Then the healing can begin.
The Grinch can not steal Christmas. Governor Cuomo is powerless to spoil our Holiday Cheer. Try as he might, he can not break our spirit. He has compounded the health emergency through authoritarian rule. His mandates have crippled small businesses, the backbone of the State. He has caused misery and suffering for millions of New Yorkers. Our strength and resolve push back against him. We are committed to fighting back against his tyranny. We resist his efforts to defeat us. On Christmas Day we are united as one.
Andrew Cuomo may be banned from dining in various restaurants. That is the plan being circulated by restauranteurs outraged by his ban on indoor dining. The proposal would also bar hapless New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio. Owners are fighting for their economic survival. They are joining forces against the unscientific ban on indoor dining. Research shows that less than 2 percent of covid cases originate at dining venues. The great majority – 70 percent – are spread through at-home gatherings. Cuomo’s misguided edict is causing people to congregate at home, dramatically increasing the infection rate. The restaurant industry is putting King Andrew on notice. His subjects will no long take his tyranny sitting down.
Protestors have debuted a web series on Instagram. Good Morning Cuomo is a new broadcast initiated by disgruntled bar and restaurant owners. It showcases the plight of struggling hospitality venues crippled by the Governor’s arbitrary mandate. Presently he has shut down all indoor dining in New York City. Business that had been limping along with limited indoor dining now face ruin. The irony is that Cuomo’s own statistics show that only 1.4 percent of covid cases originate at bars and restaurants. The great majority arise from home gatherings. Come on scrooge, do the right thing. During this Christmas week loosen the restrictions and give these important mom-and-pop businesses a chance to survive. The voters of New York will long remember your capricious edicts.
Governor Cuomo blames his own shortcomings on the Trump Administration. He decries the lack of federal support to plug New York’s budget hole. The latest stimulus bill, crafted by a bipartisan coalition in Congress, contains no money to bail out state and local governments. He sees that as Trump’s fault. In reality it is due to King Cuomo’s lack of budgetary discipline. He has bloated the state payroll and done nothing to build up cash reserves. He is now starring at massive shortfalls that are his creation. Time for belt tightening in Albany, Andy.
There is no science to restaurant closings in New York City. Governor Cuomo arbitrarily shut them down. Incredibly enough he has revealed that restaurant venues are responsible for only 1.4 percent of covid infections. King Cuomo is divorced from economic reality. His harsh and ever changing rules for operating food establishments are killing the industry. Most are mom-and-pop businesses owned and staffed by minorities. By strangling cash flow many will not survive. New Yorkers must rally to the defense of these hard working entrepreneurs before it is too late.
Andrew Cuomo’s mantra is full of Hollow Words. He is telling us to “Slow the spread, stop the shutdown”. The Governor should listen to his own slogan. He has single-handedly crippled business in New York State. His arbitrary directives to shut down struggling small enterprises is causing irrevocable harm. Restaurants, bars, hair salons, and gyms have been forced to the brink of insolvency. Many will close permanently. The vast majority of covid transmissions occur due to home gatherings. Cases attributable to public venues are miniscule. The autocrat’s actions are compounding the suffering. Give us a break, King Cuomo.
Governor Cuomo is noncommittal about allowing Bills fans to attend playoff games. Responding to reporters questions at a press conference, he once again fudged, taking a wait and see approach. After waiting for an AFC East title for 25 years, the faithful deserve better. Over a generation has passed since the Bills won the division. This is yet another instance of Cuomo’s arbitrary and capricious rule. Remember this when the next election rolls around. Voters can restore freedom to the Empire State by voting him out of office.
