I saw an unsurprising headline today.
“San Francisco gym owners livid after discovering gyms in government buildings have been opened for months”
Here’s the rest of the article…
“Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus.
“It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” Daniele Rabkin, of Crossfit Golden Gate, told a local NBC station. “Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.”
The gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1.
“It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do,” Dave Karraker, owner of MX3 Fitness in the Castro, said.
“What the city has unwillingly done is created this great case study that says that working out indoors is actually safe,” said Karraker. “So, at this point, we’re just demanding that they allow us to have the same workout privileges for the citizens of San Francisco that the employees of San Francisco have.”
The report comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was recorded in a San Francisco salon without a face mask, despite local orders mandating that such establishments be closed.
“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work,” salon owner Erica Kious told Fox News last week of Pelosi.
“We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses, and I just can’t — it’s a feeling — a feeling of being deflated, helpless, and honestly, beaten down,” Kious said.
Nobody should be surprised at this point, it’s clear they’re all just tyrants in the Golden Gate.
Eventually these people will face the consequences of their actions, and it will be ugly.
At the same time, as a former resident of California, I have a hard time feeling bad for these residents. They voted these types of loony-bins in, let them accumulate all this power, and are now surprised that they are continually flexing this power. You want change? You better uprise. Look at Belarus. You better start marching in the streets and demanding things change. There is strength in numbers.
But, you have to defy the itty-bitty lockdown rules to do this.
And, most Californians don’t have the stomach for this.
It’s one of the many reasons I left the Golden-but-burning state for greener and more fertile pastures.
The message is clear:
You are to be ruled and under control of your governmental overlords.
You are an “insurgent” if you say this out loud.
If that doesn’t sound like a terrifying form of modern-day Nazism, I don’t know what is.
In any case…
It’s also why I recommend you get out — now — or start developing a plan to. It’s why my friend Didact and I came up with “Limitless Living”. To give you the roadmap to get out, build a new life, and escape a quickly sinking ship.
Limitless Living is out tomorrow, but only until Sunday, September 13th.
After that, the doors will be closed.
