Token Gesture

Token Gesture. Cuomo has repealed the ban on Sunday barbering. He says it will help struggling small businesses. Too bad he did not care about the countless mom and pop shops that were hurt by his covid lockdowns. The unnecessary and excessive shutdowns crushed small entrepreneurs across the state. Thousands upon thousands of establishments closed permanently. More more are limping along, barely surviving. The Governor is given to hollow gestures. The ban on barbering was irrelevant in today’s world and rarely enforced. He termed it a meaningless law. So many of his actions are similarly meaningless. He arbitrarily imposed his will without thought to the consequences. Token Gesture. The repeal of Sunday haircutting restrictions is further evidence of his hollow governing.
