Democrats Helping Their Constituents

A Philadelphia City Councilwoman wants to make it easier for thugs to rob convenience stores, liquor stores, and other businesses.

A controversial bill is currently working its way through city hall designed to regulate ‘stop and go’ liquor stores. One part of the bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass inside their stores. But at what cost to their safety?

It’s called the ‘Stop and Go’ bill and is being offered by city councilwoman Cindy Bass.

“Right now, the plexiglass has to come down,” she said.

 

Bass says she’s battling for her constituents.

Oh, she sure is.

  1. Do you even bother to do a cursory check on these things?

    This law targets businesses that are supposed to be restaurants but instead serve as convenience bars selling in many cases single shots in plastic glasses that people take on the street.

    Furthermore this has nothing to do with the Democratic / Republican parties as Daphne Goggins (a Philadelphia Republican ward member) also supports targeting these “stores.”

    It’s time for you to look into the mirror and ask yourself why you are so easily duped by these things. You don’t come across as a gullible fool yet you prove to be one time and time again.

  2. The Chicago Democratic machine allowed the mess in the first place & are making it worse, mike.

  5. I used to live in Philly, and if passed soon it will apply to all retail, grocery and food-service businesses and gas-stations. The Courts will rule that it’s discriminatory and require it applied broadly, …it’s the Philly way the regulatory-creep happens. If passed half the small retailers will close one-hour before sunset; No takeout, no corner bodegas, no delivery pizza.

    Near my apartment was a 24-hour gas station and convenience store at the foot of Ridge Avenue that was armored heavier than the Philadelphia Mint. At night you stood outside and paid for your gas through a 1-1/2″ plexiglass teller’s window with the sliding armored-tray. Your soda or loaf of bread was passed through an armored revolving chamber that was gas-proof so the attendant couldn’t be maced, or tear-gassed into opening the locked, bolted doors and letting the Sisters-of-Mercy collect their charitable donation. [/sarcasm]

    Any business that did lots of cash after 700pm had armored-glass; pizza places, Chinese takeout, even eat-in restaurants had plexiglass shield at-least shielding the cashier partially from a gun-and-grab. And those were the nice yuppie neighborhoods and the Gayborhood. That was 20-years ago, I’m sure it’s worse now.

    Remember, these are the same idiots who passed a city-wide Sugar Tax on soft-drinks, fountain beverages and mixed drinks. A 2-liter jug of your favorite sweet beverage now has a $1.02-tax surcharge vs. buying it on-sale in the suburbs. …Guess where people now buy their soda?

  6. Since the employees and owners aren’t allowed to arm themselves, thanks Dumbocrats, they protect themselves in the only way they can.
    This most likely has resulted in the reduction in robbery related homicides in the city. However, without a surge in gun related robbery homicides the removal of the plexiglass would enable, how else would the Dumbocrats call for more restrictions on gun ownership?

  7. So once again mike tries to sprinkle a little dollop of truth onto a big steaming pile of crappy lies and make others swallow the lies as truth.

  8. Everywhere — except the City of Philadelphia — is a shall-issue CCW jurisdiction in Pennsylvania.

    In Philly, …dial 911 and point your cell-phone camera at the bad man. That way the County Coroner can identify your corpse.

  9. It doesn’t matter if they are selling single beer in cans, sandwiches, smokes or howitzers if the city allows it they have the right to sell and to protect themselves from the denizens of the night that exist to prey on the work of others. If the Philly police responded faster then maybe these crimes would drop and the proprieters wouldn’t be forced to fortress up their stores. This Blass woman is trying to drive these businesspeople out either voluntarily or in a box and I’d tend to look a little deeper into her true motives for her actions.

  10. mike – if Philly pols want to ban store that sell single cans of beer and the like then they should write an ordinance to do that. The proposed ordinance states “No establishment shall erect or maintain a physical barrier.”

    So what’s your beef with the post? It’s accurate.

    And so what if these businesses sell singles? Are they violating current law? As it’s private property, why shouldn’t they erect a barrier if they want to provided the don’t violate fire codes?

    The correct response is to tell the city council: fine, you first. No barriers at City Hall; no barriers at any business.

  11. Well, Mike is partially right. If you do a non-cursory check, the whole idea is to restrict alcohol consumption. Apparently, to serve alcohol in a cafe setting, you must have seating for 30+ people. Lots of places do not have this. The idea about removing the bulletproof glass is simply a way to get the stores to close or stop selling alcohol to be consumed on the premises.

    By the way, Daphine Goggins is a Trump supporter, and might be called a rabid Trump supporter.

    Google “Daphine goggins” “Cindy bass” to get the lowdown on what is happening.

  12. I agree with KCRob. If you want to restrict those businesses, change the law to regulate them directly. Do not use underhanded tactics.

  13. “If you want to restrict those businesses, change the law to regulate them directly. Do not use underhanded tactics.”

    Maybe because most of the businesses are run by Koreans, while the Councilwomen and their constituents are black? (And the councilwomen don’t think of Koreans living and working in their districts as constituents?) There is, after all, a lot of black Americans who hate Koreans.

  14. @Larry – Apparently, to serve alcohol in a cafe setting, you must have seating for 30+ people.

    If I’m reading this correctly, there are restrictions already on the books (ordinance? regulation?). Why not enforce existing codes?

    Where I work, there are a couple of businesses in the area with barriers. I don’t go into them very often but I know I would not work at them without physical barriers.

    Comment by KCRob — November 29, 2017 @ 10:13 pm - November 29, 2017

  15. Why not enforce existing codes?
    Because it’s more fun, when the opportunity presents itself, to deprive Koreans of the means to defend themselves? After all, what right do *those people* have to come into *our* neighborhood and operate successful businesses? Who do they think they are, learning how to run a business, working long hours, and saving their money?

  16. KCRob: I have no idea why the current laws aren’t enforced. Some of the webpages I found in my search described an action group. This group specializes in protests where they get a party of thirty and go to one of these places to be seated.

  17. pst314: I used to live dead center in multicultural madness. A small slice of multiracial cowboy country surrounded by a growing, thriving Asian community. We didn’t pick on other races or sexual persuadings, but it was perfectly acceptable to rag on one’s own groupings. And people of other groupings could laugh at those diatribes.
