"Are you going to pay my rent? says owner Anton Van Happen of 'Nick
The Greek' to public health inspectors issuing him a citation for
staying open after being issued a closure order. Things got tense

Late is better than never... however these revolutions should
have started the day Governments first tried to brainwash you
into further submission and subservience with lockdowns in
January 2020. You don't need Government. Free yourselves.

The health officials were ordering Mr. Van Happen to close his
business because he allegedly violated California's ban on outdoor
dining. Mr. Van Happen asked the health officials if the government
will pay his employees and his rent while his business is indefinitely

Mr. Van Happen is hardly the only small business owner worried about
how to pay bills during the lockdowns. Many small businesses operate
on a narrow profit margin, so being forced to "temporarily" shut
down or limit the number of customers they can serve is a virtual
death sentence.

The lockdowns have already caused as many as 200,000 small businesses
to permanently close. Lockdowns, by shrinking the number of employers,
lead to long-term unemployment or lower wages for many workers.

While governments have terrorized small businesses, they have
typically deemed the big chain stores "essential businesses" so
they can remain open. The lockdowns are thus another government
policy that gives big businesses a competitive advantage over their
smaller competitors.
