..........The Legislature voted to give Cuomo an unprecedented right to declare an emergency and then suspend state or local laws as he chooses. Few Democratic legislators even objected to the obscene abdication........
Sadly, Assembly Democrats even rejected the GOP minority’s proposal to require state officials to update the Legislature on the effectiveness and distribution of the $40 million emergency appropriation to fight COVID-19 — even though Cuomo has squandered untold millions on dubious economic-development programs and projects.
The Legislature’s surrender calls to mind the late Henry Stern’s biting comment about the City Council: “At least a rubber stamp leaves an impression.”

No I don't at all. The virus does not discriminate . Leadership should be fair and just. I've mentioned a few times that the people in charge of our daily life , well, they sure are not mentally fit to be in charge of my life, but... sadly what can I do about it.
What you see in America has now happened worldwide, nothing to do with govt. Its called "survival" and those that have the wits to see what is taking place and stay one step a head of any game that freedom is being taken away from us. No jobs, no money, society then becomes one big outdoor prison led by evil intentions that can maintain power to crush the thoughts of the free will minds of its citizens.
