Gym for me, but not for thee

San Francisco gym owners have recently discovered that gyms inside government buildings for public servants have been open for months.

Never mind that private gyms remain shut due to the dangers of coronavirus.

Dave Karraker, owner of MX3 Fitness, said,

It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to doWhat the city has unwillingly done is created this great case study that says that working out indoors is actually safe…So, at this point, we’re just demanding that they allow us to have the same workout privileges for the citizens of San Francisco that the employees of San Francisco have.

Never mind that private citizens are suffering fines for opening their businesses just to feed their families. Public service seems to be there to serve the public servants, not the the public.

Everyday we get more confirmation that the pandemic is nowhere near as virulent as made out. The CDC has reported that only 6% of deaths in America have been directly from COVID-19.

Actions speak louder than words. If public servants can pump iron indoors they can go to a polling booth.
