City officials in this left-wing hellhole want to charge patrons extra in order to make this COVID policy permanent

It’s been two years since COVID and the ridiculous panic surrounding it swept across our nation and the rest of the world.

Looking back, the reaction from our government was terrible to say the least.

Now city officials in this left-wing hellhole want to charge patrons extra in order to make this COVID policy permanent.

There are few things better in life than enjoying a nice meal outside on a nice, sunny day.

But practically forcing people to eat outside in a city covered with junkies, used heroin needles, and crack pipes?

Well, that is exactly what city officials in Portland, Oregon are proposing.

City officials announced just the other day that provisions incentivizing outdoor seating sections will be made permanent.

Outdoor seating is great and all but shouldn’t businesses be allowed to make these decisions for themselves?

After all, the more the government gets involved, the more likely things will go terribly wrong.

But the worst part of this government decree is that they expect consumers to pay a fee for this outdoor seating program.

Paying for an overpriced arugula salad with a $12 craft Kombucha to wash it down is clearly not enough.

So what do these outdoor dining fees go to you may ask?

Well, the city of Portland announced that the revenue from these ridiculous fees will go to “developing design standards, public education and assistance for businesses owned by community members who are Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).”

Because of course they do.

Only Portland can turn something as quant and simple as outdoor dining into some taxed, government-regulated social justice project.

This initiative represents everything wrong with the radical Left and the way they think.

Instead of allowing businesses to make smart decisions about how they wish to operate their restaurants for themselves, the government has to get involved.

And, of course, some race-baiting social justice project has to be squeezed in there somewhere.

So far, the people of Portland do not seem to mind this initiative despite it costing them a bit more.

Perhaps that’s not surprising since everyone with any amount of sanity has either learned to tune this crap out or got out of there a long time ago.
