Another Harsh Restriction Takes Away Our Right To Booze During The Holidays

Many bar owners rely on thirsty out-of-town relatives to make that extra cash during the holidays but if the pandemic has taught us one thing it’s that you can’t count on anything.

Authorities in Pennsylvania are trying to take away that that source of income for bar owners and that small get-away for family members trying to get a break from family gatherings.

Pennsylvania officials on Monday issued a stay-at-home advisory and announced they will restrict alcohol sales in bars and restaurants starting at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving eve in an effort to combat the rise of new coronavirus cases and an alarming rate of hospitalizations in the state.

“We are in a very disastrous situation,” Governor Tom Wolf said in a press briefing Monday afternoon. “We’ll be stepping up enforcement of all public health orders,” he added.

Pennsylvania is ordering bars, restaurants and private catered events to stop alcohol sales for on-site consumption at 5 p.m. local time on November 25 only. Officials said “indoor dining may continue, takeout is encouraged.”

“The biggest day for drinking is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I don’t like addressing that anymore than anyone else does, but it’s a fact,” Wolf said. “When people get together in that situation it leads to an increase in the exchange of the fluids that leads to increased infection.”

This is a perfect example of why there are so many people against harsh lockdown restrictions placed on businesses by tyrannical overlords who don’t realize the economic impact their greed has on the working class.
