Brickbat: I'm Going to Make Them an Offer They Can't Refuse


The New York City Hospitality Alliance, which represents the city's restaurants, said it might go to court if the state continues to keep restaurants closed to inside dining to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. But hours after the NYCHA spoke of the possibility of legal action, Gov. Andrew Cuomo threatened to end outside dining as well, saying the city's bars and restaurants haven't done as good a job as those in other parts of the state in enforcing mask mandates and social distancing. The NYCHA says thousands of restaurants will be forced to close if the restrictions aren't eased.

  2. This is what happens when you have a Fredo in charge.

    1. Actually , his brother is Fredo. The Gov. is Santino (you know- caused a bunch of people to die in nursing homes uneccessarily while he was joking around with his {CNN Chief Weightlifting Correspondent} lil’ bro on CNN). Plus: neither he or his proffesional teleprompter reader of a brother is smart enough to be Michael.

      1. So your saying he should stay away form toll booths?

        1. +1 “Leave the gun, take the cannolli.”

          2. LOVE Cannollis! Leave ’em at my place!

    2. “It ain’t the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smart!” – Cuomo, probably

      1. He’s well on his way to destroying an entire industry in NYC. I’m sure many of these people voted for him and their commie mayor. So, bend over and take.

        1. And you can be sure most of them will vote for them again, if only out of a sense that it somehow “feels right” and any other option would usher in the very end of civilization.

          Though it is hard to imagine how New Yorkers are going to get along without their eateries.

          1. There will be tremendous opportunity for people who want to start restaurants in a year or two, I suspect.

  3. If this doesn’t work, he will ban eating altogether.

    1. And if that doesn’t work?

      1. He will ban fucking.

        1. Didn’t they already try that?

    2. He will tell you what counts as food.

  4. Tanking your own economy to own Trump.

    1. He thinks the Ron Perlman memes are real tweets.

  5. For some reason, I’m not thinking of The Godfather, I’m thinking of Mutiny on the Bounty, the part where Captain Bligh threatens to have a man lashed for daring to express mutinous thoughts, you know, the part just before the men decide they’ve had enough and they mutiny.

    1. The recall process needs to be quick and speedy. Hell, let’s get a Constitutional Amendment started to guarantee the right to quick and speedy recalls.

  6. To be honest, I want governor Cuomo to just keep exercising hias petty diktat muscles. NY deserves every single one of them. They elected this stunod…let them reap the full consequence.

    1. Another “Democracy Good and Hard” moment.

    2. Every generation has to learn the lesson because you can’t trust anyone over 30.

    3. They [primarily metropolitan voters] love him for the virtues of gun control and taking down the NRA BAMN, his authoritarian if not extra judicial bent, and just being all around progressive and hating Orange Man.

  7. So, one more reminder to be damn sure to vote in November?

  8. Cuomo is a clown.

  9. Christ, what an asshole.

  10. I just hope Trump is planning on campaigning hard in New York – this shit keeps up and New York might be in play. Hell, at this point, California might be in play.

    1. Now you’ve got me to fantasizing. What would the true progressive believers do in such an outcome, other than weep, wail, and gnash their teeth? Would they follow Hilda’s exhortation to “not concede under any circumstances?” The MSM, foreseeing the further filling of federal court vacancies with FEDSOC members would lose their damned minds over the obstruction of most progressive agendas for generations [actually, simple respect for the BOR will necessitate much of that]. Serious efforts at secession? How should we respond to that [hint, NOT like Lincoln did]?

      1. Let them go? New York’s value is in being part of the United States. They leave and wall street has to relocate to a place within the united states. Banks need a head quarters in the US and so does the stockmarket. Those people leave and New York’s economy tanks. New York’s economy tanks and it stops having all those fun things that people consider making living in a rat trap worth living in. Other businesses pull out and head quarter elsewhere. Whole city become an example to the rest of the world.

  11. Cuomo is beginning to look like Chiklis’ Ben Grimm

  12. After being fired from my old job 4 months ago, i’ve had luck to learn about this great company online that was a lifesaver for me… They offer online home-based work. My last month payment after working with them for 6 months was 12000 bucks… Great thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…If you think this could be for you then find out more here…


  13. Didn’t Emperor Andy (as a local radio station calls him) also once admit to violating federal law prohibiting possession of eagle feathers. I sure would like to have seen the $250,000 fine levied on him and the federal SWAT team kick in his door to recover the illegal feather. But he got a pass on that too.

  14. ●▬▬▬▬PART TIME JOBS▬▬▬▬▬●I am creating an honest wage from home 1900 Dollars/week , that is wonderful, below a year agone i used to be unemployed during a atrocious economy. I convey God on a daily basis i used to be endowed these directions and currently it’s my duty to pay it forward and share it with everybody, Here is I started…..
