After steadfastly and repeatedly insisting that an economic and social lockdown was the only way to save America from the very weak scourge of the covid disease; and after threatening to permanently close any business that didn’t adhere to his lockdown order; and after threatening to imprison any person who didn’t obey him; and after making fun of the Republican governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, for stating that Florida was healthy and prospering because he refused to order a lockdown; the idiot governor of New York, Democrat Andrew Cuomo, now states that the lockdown is not working, and that it has caused more misery than it has cured, and that the lockdown has caused businesses to fail, and deaths to occur, at a rate that the state can’t support, and that continuing the lockdown will cause more misery and unemployment in the future, so the governor is now ending the lockdown in New York.
Just like that! The “science” that Cuomo previously pretended was behind the state-wide economic lockdown that he ordered has obviously changed from when he ordered the original lockdown, so never mind!
Following a year of Democrat officials bombastically telling us how moral and good they were for protecting their citizens from the covid illness, and threatening all sorts of punishment for their own citizens if they didn’t obey their Democrat leaders and their “scientific” policies of life and death, it’s entertaining to have a Democrat leader admit that his entire lockdown push for all of 2020 was unscientific crap, from beginning to end. But why does it take the better part of a year, thousands of deaths and the closing of at least hundreds of businesses, for the governor to end his disastrous policies? One might ask Governor Cuomo where the “science” that he depended on went wrong and why his ideas now are correct, now that he is evidently working contrary to “science”. Or did the “science” that Democrat leader crowed about all the time suddenly change, all of a sudden?
One wonders: has the good governor thinks he has reduced the number of Grandmas sufficiently in his state that he now feels that his job is done, and the few Grandmas that are still left in New York State, after the many deaths of older people that Cuomo caused with his poorly-thought-out orders and his placement of already-sick people with nursing home residents, and his giving the covid vaccine to prisoners before he allowed the life-giving shots to be given to older people, can be allowed to step outside their homes, breathe fresh air and maybe go to work?
Knowing now how wrong the slow-speaking and slow-thinking governor has been with his insistence on enforcing lockdowns, will the good governor apologize to New Yorkers for the miserable year they lost and suffered through due to his idiotic rule? You can bet he won’t.
