There is nothing a communist won’t make illegal if it will allow them to have power over you and your family and if it helps them pay for one of their multiple luxurious homes. This is what communist lawmakers in New York have come to understand when they, effective this year, made it a FINEABLE OFFENSE to look up at the sky and stargaze.
If you think I am joking about just how utterly corrupt and messed up communists can be, I am sad to say that I am not making this up. In New York, effective this year, you must obtain a license costing $35 (for residents, $60 for tourists) if you wish to have the privilege of looking up at the sky.
According to Red State: “The Free Thought Project first reported on the story, explaining that ‘if citizens of the state wish to look up at the sky and view the stars at one of New York’s public parks, they will first have to obtain a “Stargazing permit”’. The site pointed out that pollution in the sky makes it more difficult for New Yorkers in ‘highly populated areas’ to see the sky at night, so they travel to remote areas, many of which are located in state parks.”
And according to the official PDF file from the state’s Parks Department, you are only allowed to use that permit at the following parks:
So not only are you not allowed to stargaze wherever you wish with that unnecessary and stupid permit, instead having to go to specific parks, but you also are not allowed to stargaze outside of the specific areas listed in parentheses. Hither Hills seems to be the only park without area restrictions, but you are not allowed to stargaze in July and August, which seems particularly stupid, considering Independence Day falls in one of those months.
Are people not allowed to look up altogether when it’s nighttime? What if it’s cloudy and there are no stars to be seen? What about when you’re in the denser areas, where light pollution makes it impossible to look at the stars? What if the wind is blowing rather strongly and something flies off and you have to look up to look at it? What if a child commits this heinous crime of looking up? Will said child be forced to pay the fine, or will his/her parents have to cough up the money? What if a homeless man (of which there is no short supply in New York) looks up at night? In all likelihood, he would be unable to pay the fine. Is the alternative jail time?
Why do I have to ask all of these questions? Well, that last one is simple: communists gonna communist.
Seriously, whatever they can fine you for, tax you for or imprison you for, they will go ahead and do it. Looking up at the night sky? That’s a fine. Speaking your mind online? If it’s paired with information that the communists disagree with, that’s a prison sentence. Are being suspected of thinking anti-State thoughts? To the gulags with you.
There doesn’t need to be any rhyme or reason for such a law to be passed and a crime to be made out of something so completely unremarkable. Communists will make drinking water between the hours of 8:00 PM and 8:00 AM illegal if they can get away with it (and if they can enforce it, which I also doubt they would be able to very effectively enforce this new asinine law). This is what happens when you elect into power people who believe the governed are subject to the government as opposed to the other way around. When people seeking power actually obtain it, they will do whatever they can to execute that power as much as they can in whatever way they can.
The Democrats practically own the state of New York. They can pass any law they want without much consequence. At worst, the people of New York will leave the state in droves, but that doesn’t fix anything and stands to make the places they move to as crappy as New York is.
When given as much power as this, Democrats show their true colors. If possible, they would turn the whole country into the same communist craphole that New York and Commiefornia currently are. They seek the ability to make and pass laws like this anytime they wish.
The aforementioned Red State figures that the real reason behind this is monetary. That the government of the state of New York is looking for another way to make money and “is needlessly restricting the liberty of its citizens to make a quick buck.” I wouldn’t put it past the Democrats to pass stupid laws to make a quick buck, but I doubt that is the major reason behind this law simply due to how unenforceable this is.
Sure, police officers and park rangers might catch a few people doing it, but LOOKING UP is such a common thing for people that the vast majority of these “criminals” will get away with it. There are millions of people in New York, and while the NYPD has plenty of people in the force, there is no way they’d be able to patrol and catch people looking up at the sky at night and get absolutely everybody.
The cops already have their hands full looking out for REAL crimes, of which there are plenty in New York, without having to worry about looking for serial head raisers to bust. The New York lawmakers didn’t pass this law simply to make a quick buck. They did it because they could. They did it because this gives them a sense of power. Regardless of whether or not it yields them much money, they can feel like they are the God they largely don’t claim to believe in because they CAN.
Like I said, there doesn’t have to be any rhyme or reason for making anything legal or illegal in commieworld. They do things, not because they will be good for the people, or good for the government, but because they can. Who’s going to stop them from passing such asinine laws? Most people in New York are Democrat and will continue voting accordingly until they either move (provided they have the ability to do so) or get taxed to literal death.
This is what happens when you give people with zero morals the power to run any level of government.
