Unlike 19 other states in the nation, there is no recall system for
voters in New York State to remove an elected official. The power to
remove a local elected official rests solely with the Governor for some
local elected officials.
New York's electorate has been shaken by bad actions of the few elected
officials who are charged with upholding and creating laws but are
instead breaking them. Confidence in government and in those elected to
govern is at an all-time low. The confidence of the electorate needs to
be rebuilt. By extending this right to remove and replace an elected
official, prior to the completion of their term, to New Yorkers, we will
be providing them with a mechanism to remove officials who have breached
the public trust while creating a powerful deterrent for others who
might do the same. It is time to remind all of our elected officials
that, in a democracy, the power rests with the voters and not with the
people they put into office. The public should not have to wait until
the end of an officials elected term to hold that person accountable for
his or her actions.
IMO, if the state and local government want to continue the lockdown, they need to take responsibility and shoulder the financial burden that are driving owners out of business. The poolhall owners I've talked with want to do their part to contain COVID-19, but they are being driven out of business. The shutdown doesn't give them a break on rent, utilities or other expenses, which they are still obligated to meet.
Flu vaccine is on average 40%effective.Mandatory vaccine, etc., etc
He wants everyone to do exactly as the Government request without question.
He bit hook, line, and sinker.
He says the vaccine helps you get over it, but doesn't prevent spreading or you catching it lmao.
So whats the point?
And his kind will be screaming about these mandates .
When all this started I knew people would be hesitant to do what was necessary so I decided to not play publicly until they figured it out because the aerial
ability of the virus is so much a thing in the spread.
Given the virus is aerial and floats that would mean you need a mask to reduce the aerial mist from each person's breath and each table and rack of balls needs sanitizing between customers.
The virus can live a long time on cloth and you're all over the cloth and need to avoid touching yourself and wash up well afterwards.
Pool rooms can operate as safe as other businesses for those that don't mind being in a room of people.
Once a day sanitizing is near useless.
Until a vaccine I will likely be at home and planning on building my man cave.
Our entire government is bought and sold by big business. There is one party folks...all this nonsense is theatre. It's been months of fighting to bail out the people. How many times does the government bail out banks, airlines ect without any resistance? The biggest companies and the richest people have benefitted the most from all of the programs passed. It is blatant and shameful.IMO, if the state and local government want to continue the lockdown, they need to take responsibility and shoulder the financial burden that are driving owners out of business.

Biden announced he is going to consider Andrew Cuomo for Attorney General...draw your own conclusions.Politicians haven't addressed the damage they did to the economy with the forced closures.
It feels like prohibition busting, or over enforcement of health policies.
COVID Health Impact was minimized at the expense of everyone else.
Most NYers in the Small Business community have no light at the end of the tunnel.
The Governor turns it on and off for fun.
In 1868, Tweed became grand sachem (leader) of Tammany Hall and was also elected to the New York State Senate, and in 1870 he and his cronies took control of the city treasury when they passed a new city charter that named them as the board of audit. In full force now, the Tweed ring began to financially drain the city of New York through faked leases, false vouchers, extravagantly padded bills and various other schemes set up and controlled by the ring.
Tammany’s decentralized organization enabled ward leaders to act as advocates for individuals when they had difficulties with the law. A criminal judge, for example, appointed or kept in office by Tammany Hall would have to listen carefully to a local ward leader asking for a suspended sentence in a particular case. Later, the hundreds receiving Tammany Hall assistance with problems or baskets of food on holidays would show their gratitude at the polls.
‘Reform’ administrations periodically took power away from the Hall, but for many years it always made a comeback. Then anti-Tammany mayor Fiorello La Guardia (1934-1945), with the help of Franklin D. Roosevelt, was able to weaken the machine’s power permanently. It retained some strength, however, until John V. Lindsay’s mayoralty (1966-1973).
