Comrade Cuomo Announces Visitors into New York Must Show Papers and Register With State or Face $2,000 Fine..

Comrade citizens, those who travel in the Northeast zone should beware, Minister Cuomo is going all-in with the COVID compliance mandates.  All travelers into New York from “high-COVID” states, must provide their papers upon arrival or face a summons and $2,000 fine.

      I have a retired friend who lives in Hawaii. Everyday she is harping on Facebook for tourists to NOT come there. Their Covid numbers are minimal. It is like she wants to keep all the Islands there to herself. I feel for Hawaii’s tourist industry.
      When pressed the question she responds ….”it is better that we Hawaiians remain safe.” Her little safe Kingdom. By the way she is a transplanted Howie.

            • My daughter wants to take her kids to FL for a mini-vacation, and researched the airfare prices. Round Trip (I think she said Spirit Airlines) was $25 per person. I’m pretty sure that those ticket prices would amount to a LO$$ for the airline, even with a FULL cabin. So, I’m guessing that they’re getting some sort of govt subsidy based on how many flights they make.

          New York state is a wonderful place to visit (pre-Cuomo, of course). Besides its beauty (including the vivid colors of fall foliage and picturesque villages with their white steeple churches) the state is rich with historical sights.

          Well, I have lived in NYC for years. It was always my dream. I’ve always liked cities. I prefer urban vacations to the beach variety. Lots of food variety at all hours, museums, shopping, and all day walks around the city with endless sights, smells and sounds. My dog loves the parks. I love trying different pizzas every weekend and walking to several different markets to collect my groceries because each specializes in something different. That said, I bailed on NYC 2+ months ago, it was just so oppressive and I knew it would only get worse as the summer heat set in. I still don’t know when I will go back. We are considering selling our condo there, which has now taken a dive in value. I am really sad and angry. Not everyone in NYC is a crazy commie. But I do understand your feelings, because at this very time I feel the same way. I can’t envision myself returning any time soon. It’s infuriating, it’s like they won and pushed me out.

My oldest works at the best hospital in Boston where she contracted the virus treating patients — down for 5 weeks on the heels of running the LA Marathon. Never whined once. My kids and many of their friends are bright, tough, assertive and highly self-sufficient. Not bragging or scolding, just respectfully suggesting that generalizing is almost never a good idea. I don’t mean to be a raw nerve but I feel like many very good kids get a bad rap and, while there may be too many who fit your description, the broad brush is far from fair or accurate.

      These State and Municipal governments are ALREADY bankrupt, due to SALT and first lockdown, so they figure their only shot is to trash their economy, in order to trash the National economy, so Biden will win, and give them huge federal bailouts?

        Also, I wouldn’t normally judge others comments but, isn’t that kinda insulting to compulsive liars? At least compulsive liars are consistent in their evil enterprise.

        Grovellor Cuomo would astral travel the galaxy to add new wicked whims in his cauldron.

    Chief Justice John Marshall explained that one of the powers the state possessed was the power to quarantine in an 1824 case known as Gibbons v. Ogden. These powers are by their nature temporary. They are justified by the extraordinary circumstance of a pandemic, in which a highly communicable and frequently lethal disease can be spread by infected people merely interacting with others. That said, the question is “how long do these temporary powers exist” and “what if the contagion is eternal and there is no cure” and “if the States ignore or refuse to apply curative solutions in a timely manner” do the powers of quarantine exist at all?” Further on, manipulation of medical inquiries and evidence to support a further quarantine against objective evidence to the contrary, may constitute a denial of 4th Amendment rights as well as whatever criminal liabilities might accrue. Serious questions. Be wary and mindful of the answers.

      Sorry to say, but we lost the right of Freedom of Association with the passage of the 1965 Civil Rights Act, which ushered in vast new, wholly unConstitutional rights for Government and its Bureaucracies (I don’t know how to emphasize on WP, but see where I’ve added asterisks):

      “American society today is divided by party and by ideology in a way it has perhaps not been since the Civil War. I have just published a book that, among other things, suggests why this is. It is called The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties. It runs from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to the election of Donald J. Trump. You can get a good idea of the drift of the narrative from its chapter titles: 1963, Race, Sex, War, Debt, Diversity, Winners, and Losers.

      But it is a third strand of the story, running all the way down to our day, that is most important for explaining our partisan polarization. It concerns how the civil rights laws of the 1960s, and particularly the Civil Rights Act of 1964, divided the country. They did so by giving birth to what was, in effect, a second constitution, which would eventually cause Americans to peel off into two different and incompatible constitutional cultures. This became obvious only over time. It happened so slowly that many people did not notice.
      ….

      I should make crystal clear that my book is not a defense of segregation or Jim Crow, and that when I criticize the long-term effects of the civil rights laws of the 1960s, I do not criticize the principle of equality in general, or the movement for black equality in particular.

      ***** . What I am talking about are the emergency mechanisms that, in the name of ending segregation, were established under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These gave Washington the authority to override what Americans had traditionally thought of as their ordinary democratic institutions. It was widely assumed that the emergency mechanisms would be temporary and narrowly focused. But they soon escaped democratic control altogether, and they have now become the most powerful part of our governing system.

      How Civil Rights Legislation Worked

      There were two noteworthy things about the civil rights legislation of 1964 and 1965.

      ***** The first was its unprecedented concentration of power. It gave Washington tools it had never before had in peacetime. It created new crimes, outlawing discrimination in almost every walk of public and private life. It revoked—or repealed—the prevailing understanding of freedom of association as protected by the First Amendment. It established agencies to hunt down these new crimes—an expanded Civil Rights Commission, an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and various offices of civil rights in the different cabinet agencies. It gave government new prerogatives, such as laying out hiring practices for all companies with more than 15 employees, filing lawsuits, conducting investigations, and ordering redress. Above all, it exposed every corner of American social, economic, and political life to direction from bureaucrats and judges.

      ***** To put it bluntly, the effect of these civil rights laws was to take a lot of decisions that had been made in the democratic parts of American government and relocate them to the bureaucracy or the judiciary.”

    Here’s an interesting article about the possible trajectory of covid. https://off-guardian.org/2020/07/07/second-wave-not-even-close/ Caveat: consult your own virologist on this, but the basic idea is that it appears that a big percentage of the population is not susceptible to covid even if they never show antibodies to it. Maybe they have enough T-cell immunity. Maybe they have enough innate resistance due to past exposure to other coronaviruses, but whatever it is, the infection (and death rates) in places that were initially hard hit (including NYC) are falling so fast that it implies that herd immunity may be reached with only a FAR lower percentage of the population than previously surmised being seropositive for antibodies. Perhaps as low as 20%. This is almost the only reasonable explanation for why new cases have ground almost to a halt in Sweden and elsewhere. Cuomo and Mayor Big Bird didn’t “succeed” in halting the spread. It just burned itself out. As it soon will in Houston and Florida, etc. If this theory is right, we’re 2/3 done with covid in the US and deaths (almost all elderly) will be very low about two months before the election.
