Ever since March of this year, New York State has been hitting business owners with massive, some say unreasonable, restrictions. At one time, those restrictions may have seemed necessary. But today, after all we’ve learned about COVID and the damage done by lockdowns, the governor of the state still wants to cripple his own people’s livelihoods.
Many businesses still can’t open. Schools are struggling. And most New York residents are forced to watch their finances get flushed down the toilet. Meanwhile, the governor and mayor of NYC continue to collect generous salaries. For what? Your guess is as good as mine.
Among the many businesses struggling is Orchard Park’s Athletes Unleashed gym. The owner, fed up with so many rules and burdens, held a protest with other business owners. Like jackbooted thugs, state officials showed up in an attempt to intimidate them. They even hit the owner with a massive fine.
This is how he responded.
A U.S. military veteran and gym owner in New York ripped up a $15,000 lockdown fine from the Erie County Health Department during a live Fox News appearance on Tuesday…
Speaking with Fox News’ Sandra Smith, Dinero argued that the lockdown edicts go too far, denying Americans the freedom to earn a living. Simultaneously, the veteran underscored, NY Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz are bringing in $225,000 and $103,000 salaries, respectively, via taxpayers.

Most Americans got fed up with lockdown orders all the way back in May. In many parts of the country, patriots organized protests, demanding their states reopen. To the credit of many governors (but not all), states that enact lockdowns began to reopen. But many, mostly Democrat-run states like New York and California, refused.
Since that time, we’ve learned the brutal consequences of lockdowns. They appeared to do little to “stop” COVID-19 (people continue to test positive to this day), but they were successful in ruining millions of lives. These restrictions destroyed businesses, the education of millions of children, and led to spikes in overdoses, suicides, and mental illness.
Is that worth it, Cuomo?
Even as we see an increase in positive COVID tests right now, the media does not tell you that deaths are at an all-time low. Most people who catch this virus recover in a matter of days or weeks. Yet Cuomo and Gavin Newsom (among many other Democrats) want us locked down forever.
Don’t think they’ll stop when the vaccine is ready. These Democrats are high on an overdose of power. They won’t stop until more Americans join Dinero and refuse to comply. After all, we are a nation of revolutionaries. And if Democrats don’t might riots from BLM, they should have no problem with peaceful resistance to unconstitutional lockdown orders.
