San Francisco gym owners livid after discovering gyms in government buildings have been opened for months

(Washington Examiner) Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus.

“It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” Daniele Rabkin, of Crossfit Golden Gate, told a local NBC station. “Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.”

The gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1.

The gyms were open and apparently nobody has died. It was two weeks to slow the spread in March… After this revelation and NancyGate, I wonder if the Democrats in San Francisco feel if they’re getting jobbed?

  1. Amendment XI: The Dem-rats will ‘win’ the election, by fair or foul means.

    As it’s fairly obvious senile and creepy Biden will lose any debate with Trump if he has actually to speak, how will the Dem-rats avoid this confrontation?

    And as for the vile Fauci, perhaps he should be volunteered as a vaccine guinea-pig. Bearing in mind no reliable coronavirus vaccine has ever been produced. And the annual ‘flu vaccine’ is 40% effective at best, but usually not protecting, just giving people mild flu. Cui Bono (answer: Fauci)

  2. the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1

    Oh the irony. And you little serf people thought justice required “equality before the law?”
    Actual real people know that what you get away with is directly proportional to the suffering that you claim your ancestors … er, distant kin … ah, screw it! … people who might vaguely resemble you, went through.

    PS: Slow Joe is correct and surprisingly candid. He doesn’t work for any of us. Now China on the other hand ….
