Remember, George Orwell warned us in Animal Farm that "All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others!" Uber, but for VIPs: DNC bigwigs get a special ride-hailing platform. Remember too, that many unions support the Democrats, and in many cities, including Philly, politicians are fighting against Uber! On, and one more item: with the DNC in town, bars can stay open until 4:00am:
The legislature and Gov. Wolf agreed to that and other temporary reprieves from Pennsylvania's strict liquor laws during last week's budget-funding deal. The DNC host committee asked that bars, restaurants, hotels, and other venues hosting DNC-related events apply for permits by 11:59 p.m. Monday; the list of approved establishments is expected to be available by week's end.So, think about it: before and after the politicians are in town for their party, Philadelphia bars have to close by 2:00am. This from the party that preaches equality for all. What truly pisses me off is that people actually vote for these scumbags.
The legislation did not specify a time for last call, but officials said the DNC wants venues to quit serving alcohol at 4 a.m. Cleveland, which is hosting this year's Republican National Convention, also allowed local businesses to apply for waivers to stretch last call to 4 a.m.
