Sure, they’ll have to follow the restaurant rules, but are you going to tell me that the government is going to dictate how many people I can have in MY OWN HOUSE? No, my house is private property, you can’t even search without a warrant. I control who comes into my house. Arrest me if you want, I don’t care!

“Cuomo also issued a restriction on the number of people that can gather at a PRIVATE RESIDENCE. No more than 10 people will be allowed at a private household, unless the household is more than 10 people.”
Which part was misunderstood?!

your correct, that creature has no right to dictate what we do in our house

November 11, 2020 5:58 pm

the government CAN dictate what you do in your house. You may not have an unlicensed handgun, may not have illegal drugs, may not perform … well, criminal or illegal activity, and the government decides criminality and illegality. Of course there’s a track on which law gets established and specific officials have their limitations, andthere’s law and the enforced law. But do understand that we live in a country and locality whose rules govern whatever those rules are, whether an individual likes or agrees or thinks has rights and liberties.

No he can’t and he won’t. Let him just try. We are not putting up with this anymore. He’s outnumbered and we are no longer scared of him. This Haman will be turned into hamentashen expresso!

And anyways we pay his salary. He ain’t the boss. We are. He’s fired! (Once the election fraud gets cleaned up and exposed) he can play king for pretend until then but we are NOT going to take him seriously anymore nor upend our lives to please him. Too bad!

Lots of restrictions, yet there’s still an increasing amount of COVID cases in many places around the world. Clearly the restrictions do not have the desired effect. Time to return to freedom.

They are going to try to further curtail our freedom and destroy the economy. Then if Biden comes into power they will suddenly congratulate themselves that the pandemic is gone, lift sanctions, let business begin again. And then credit themselves with the rising economy that will result.

In most countries of the world they are now setting the 10 PM deadlines, because it is after 10 PM that the real partying and alcohol drinking with large crowds of people begins in the bars and restaurants. Usually sober family people are finished by 10 PM. It is only common sense, they are doing this in many cities and many countries.

November 12, 2020 12:43 am

Common sense?! The young have zero risk from this virus (unless you go to the hospital from anxiety and get killed from the ventilator while you’re there) let them party to their hearts content, catch covid, recover and enjoy life! They have no reason to live in fear and it’s not ok that their freedom is being taken away against their will because they might get sick from something they have nothing to worry about. It’s absurd. Now if someone is terrified of covid and doesn’t want to go party then no problem they shouldn’t be forced to attend either.… Read more »

In the UK and other european countries limiting house guests is part of the protocole in lockdown. Why do people in CH always feel they are being picked on and attacked when the same rules are established in other countries as well and they are abided by. Grow up and stop feeling victimized all the time. You sound like a kid! For xmas the gvmnt in my country are not allowing parties with over 10 guests…and its normal thats where the clusters begin.

It’s true that in other countries that has been bubbles and such to stop the pandemic with limits of people per house. In the US the whole pandemic has been a political game seeing that people are allowed to vote according to the CDC even with the virus, black lives matter have been having huge protests and even the governor and mayor have been in and have participated in large groups when not allowed. Also they have targeted and spoke out against the Jews more.

We live in london and have had these restrictions plus many more in place since March! NO one has EVER complained about it being a government controlling thing or communism etc.

This is a PANDEMIC. Get that???

Hundreds of thousands of people are dying and all of us (the rest of the world other than the crazy USA) have been so appreciative that our governments are HELPING in making this tragic disease slow down and save lives!!

You are used to be getting bullied from the goverment. Here we live our free life . the govement contols your healthcare .you have to wait 6 months to see a a specialist. Is that Normal? That’s why no one complains because the government is in your way all the time and to you that is normal

You’re choice. I for one do not think these covid restrictions are necessary at all and will not willingly surrender my freedom for it. This is a pandemic of incompetence and tyrany. Most people who died did not have to die had they been given better treatment. And now their deaths are being used to scare you into submission.

All of this applies unless you’re going out to vote or supporting BLM and other leftist ideals. The virus can’t harm you if you’re voting or protesting for social justice.

The same victimization is being cited by those from the BLM movement as well. That it’s only them being targeted

Uh yes we do feel victimized

Since it’s mainly the Jews they decide to enforce it on while others defy it and they ignore it
So yes, full right to complain!

main way people get infected
November 11, 2020 7:35 pm

Sorry guys, but 30% of infections are due to groups of family and friends gathering indoors in a house. That is one of the main ways people are currently getting infected. Their stuff may sound strange, but there is a reason for what they are trying to do.

That’s right, alot of people will suddenly ‘support’ any group that riots because apparently that’s the only way you maintain your freedom in NY right now.

November 12, 2020 6:21 am

Black lives matter is about a group of people (black people) within the population who statistically (meaning not because they feel it but because it is FACT) marginalized and systematically hurt. Using a movement like BLM as a platform for your lack of self control is ridiculous at best. As a nation who is also statistically marginalized and who the system doesn’t always work for I would have thought our community would have supported the idea even if we cannot support the movement (due to their thoughts on Israel.)

Blah blah blah. Is that why LESS unarmed blacks were killed by cops in all of 2019 than whites? Enough with the racial identity politics! We Jews are the most marginalized and systematically hurt and we don’t let that define us as the ultimate victim. Skin doesn’t think and feel and doesn’t form your character. Your life choices do define you, whatever your skin color may be is irrelevant. We support that all are created in the image of G-d and therefore have an inalienable right to free choice as well as a responsibility to do good and make this… Read more »

Hell no! Mr governor will under no circumstance curtail any more of my individual rights because of covid. This game is over! Call him and let him know that we absolutely do not consent to his interference in ANY aspect of our lives. (Governor Cuomo #: 15184748390) Not shutting our business or schools or putting us under house arrest. Too bad if cases rise. I’d rather catch covid than surrender my freedom or suffocate my kids in masks. Sorry! Whoever wants to lock themselves at home forever is welcome to but I will not comply.

I wonder how many village idiots are enough? “Boo hoo” let us be angry and uninformed. Let us hide behind passions and our perpetual fear of the boogey man. Living life as a chassid implies a certain commitment to trying to move through the day b’simcha. But I read these comments and I see a pool of people who swim in angst and disdain. Go back to repeating Dvar Torah.
