Stay at Home or not, which is it Prince Andrew?

Stay at Home or not, which is it Prince Andrew?

For weeks now, New Yorkers have been urged, urged to stay at home.

Maybe urged is too mild a word.  Prince Andrew the Slimeball has ordered us to stay at home.

It’s the only way, don’t you know, the only way to “flatten the curve.”

Yes, your business might end up going bankrupt.  Your employees will end up losing their jobs.  But you must, nay, I order you to stay at home.

We must flatten the curve!  You must stay at home!!!!!

Sure, there are businesses and industries Prince Andrew has deemed “essential,” and those employees will still be permitted to go to work.  But everyone else, shutter your businesses, lose your job and stay at home!  For the sake of your fellow New Yorkers, you must stay at home!

Only, apparently New Yorkers don’t have to stay at home after all.

I know.  It’s hard to keep up.

Yesterday at his press conference, Prince Andrew was asked about the unemployed New Yorkers who are protesting his mandated stay at home order, and Cuomo accidentally blew the whole charade.

Listen to the condescending asshole.  Listen to how dismissive and callous he is to real New Yorkers being forced, FORCED, to lose their livelihoods because he ordered them, ORDERED THEM, to stay at home.

By pay special attention to what he says at the end of this clip.

Good heavens, what a dismissive asshole.

But notice the contradiction here?

After spending most of his time lecturing us about how important it is for the health and safety of New Yorkers to stay at home because if you don’t, you might cause someone’s death, Prince Andrew snaps, “You want to go to work? Go take a job as an essential worker. Do it tomorrow.”

Um. So are you saying we don’t need to stay at home?

I’m confused.

If the public health risk is so dire that Prince Andrew needed to order us to stay home, why suggest all the folks ordered to stay home get out and take a job as an essential worker … tomorrow?

So is he saying we can go to work?

And if we can go to work as an “essential worker,” why not just go back to work at our regular jobs?

It isn’t as if Prince Andrew deeming you an “essential worker” comes with some kind of magical immunity to the Wuhan virus.

Hey, Andrew.  If all these unemployed New Yorkers can “go take a job” tomorrow, why not get out of the way so they can get their businesses back up and running and hire back their employees … tomorrow?

You can’t have it both ways, you arrogant piece of crap.

Either it is imperative for New Yorkers to stay at home or it isn’t.  It can’t be both.

As tempting as the prospect of getting ten dollars an hour stocking shelves at Walmart might be, I’m sure most of these unemployed New Yorkers would much rather just have their actual jobs back.

And now that we know it’s okay to get out tomorrow and get a job, maybe Prince Andrew can shove his stay at home edict up his sanctimonious ass, get out of the way, and let New Yorkers take the lead in dragging our economy out of the shitter.

Because if the last ten years are any indication, we know we can’t count on Andrew Cuomo to do it for us.

    The alternative is not ‘death’. What a dumb arrogant f***! Though the Wuhan flu may be very contagious, it’s fatality rate appears to be very low, with some people not even showing symptoms or having mild symptoms. Those most at risk of severe complications are typically old people and/or people with health issues. But he knows that. His own brother just ‘survived’ his brush with ‘death’. How people elect/re-elect this idiots is beyond me.

    What a total moron. I don’t know who is worse, this idiot or my governor Gretchen Half Whitmer.

    Democrat voters are like a woman in an abusive relationship. Keep taking the slaps and punches, yet refuse to leave. I hope this is the year of the Burning Bed.

    I’m an American, therefore I am an essential worker! It’s my right under God to be free.

    First, Andrew does not need to be jetting himself all over the state let alone the country to do his job. This is not a physical calamity per se but a medical one that is about factors and resources and he could video conference everything he is doing and not put others at risk by his hauling his entourage around. Further, he does not wear a mask in public like we are all supposed to…Why is that???? Is he somehow immune to the virus?????

    Second, the decision to go to work should be made by the person whose life and livelihood depends on it. That is a fundamental right. Since you can no more prove that Coronavirus is spread by close proximity than you can it spreads by other means, closing any potential social gathering makes no sense. People have used common sense for millennia in avoiding the plague and other viral epidemics. I think we are still capable of keeping safe distances from each other without nanny Cuomo telling us what to do.

    Lastly, his remarks about the lack of PPE equipment that people are on their own is just infuriating. I bet that every state worker has the best PPE they can get as well as the city workers. Instead of protecting healthy people, why not send those critical materials to those who are exposed on a daily basis to this virus or the risk of being exposed in the case of a senior citizen might kill them. Nursing homes are having a very difficult time getting these materials and for the governor to say tough beans is just an illustration of how arrogant and unconcerned he is with the common folks; and especially upstaters.

    Our leadership tells us that the “highly contagious” virus began circulating among us possibly as early as December. Brave hospital personnel, clad in PPE, were already treating cases in Jan, Feb, until mid-March before lockdowns were announced and mitigation measures put in place. During that same period, healthy and sick people (many who thought they only had colds or were completely asymptomatic) were shopping in grocery stores and after the lockdown all of us congregated in checkout lines. At my local Safeway, Madge the 22-year veteran cashier, protected only by a grocery apron and nametag, steadfastly served the public. She was never out sick during Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, and now April; nor were her compatriots stocking shelves, working the deli, the bakery or produce. I wonder how many grocery stores closed because of sick employees? None that I know of. How many grocery store employees had the virus? I don’t know — have they even been tested? If the virus wasn’t wicked enough to sicken scores of grocery employees and to close grocery stores (a point of contact for nearly everyone and a forced point of contact during lockdown), why are we closed?

    These people are Nazis plain and simple.

    I’m amazed (not really) at all the negative reactions to GA Gov Kemp telling businesses they CAN begin to reopen (businesses that should have never been forced to close).

    – No one is FORCING businesses to reopen.
    – No one is FORCING anyone to use/visit those businesses that do reopen.

    If someone thinks it’s too soon then keep your ass at home. It’s pure Naziism to want to keep others from enjoying liberty.
