Authoritarian Moonbattery Inflicted on NYC Barber Shops

Our bureaucratic overlords don’t know the first thing about running businesses, which are required to make a profit without printing money or stealing it. But they do know how to ram egalitarian ideology down people’s throats. The results are hardly profitable:

Salon and barbershop owners are fuming over the enforcement of a provision that requires them to charge men and women the same prices.

The Wall Street Journal says 138 New York City businesses have received the violations this year. Most of them are salons and barbershops.

The city’s Department of Consumer Affairs began stepping up enforcement last year.

Managers complain that it takes extra time to clean and groom men’s nails, and to wax their backs.

They say it can take much longer to cut a woman’s hair.

Bureaucrats counter these arguments by pointing out that men and women are exactly the same, because moonbat ideology says so.

That might take a little longer than a crew cut.

On a tip from Wiggins.

    Why would anyone do that to their head and still expect to be taken seriously as an adult? This isn’t Endor…

    Fancy styling or not, she still looks like an ape.

    Government won’t be satisfied until the formerly free market is just as screwed up as government.

    On the pictures, What is she, some kind of Medusa?

    “Why would anyone do that to their head and still expect to be taken seriously as an adult?”

    Why? Why not! Especially if the mindless tax payers are paying for it. The gorilla in that pic is a member of congress from the state of Mexas, and that fancy doo was paid for by, you!

    This is simply another way for His Majesty Bloomberg to generate revenue. Soon, our limp-wristed little Fascist will require buying a permit to breath. Queen Bloomberg has made NYC one of the most expensive and oppressive cities in the nation. And the people of NYC deserve every bit of it for tolerating him!

    This doesn’t have to be a catastrophy. The barber shops just have to come up with a mindlessly complex and creative way to price their services based on time of effort, length of hair, procedures requested, etc. it will work out the same since the computation will be boyond knowing and people will just round off to whatever they customarily used to pay.

    Women pay more for services at barber shops because they are willing to pay more. That is the free market in action.

    First.. my god is that woman repulsive. Permanent sneer, disgusting traits and ridiculous haircut.

    Second, this proves how nonsensical liberal ideology is. Men and women aren’t the same, only when you pretend them to be. Oh yeah, costs me 16$ for beard trimming and crew cut at my barber shop and wife needs the afternoon and over 70? for hers. Yeah, I don’t see any problems here mister bureaucrat.

    I think Isaw her on Star Trek once.Does this mean that mechanics will have to charge the same for an oil change as they would to rebuild a transmission?Brain dead assholes to the last one.

    Joe Malone, a local politician here in Massachusetts says ” Democrats love jobs but hate job creators.” How true.

    The Federal EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) has filed a complaint against a local chain of coffee shops called Mary Lou’s. For years, this small chain of shops has sold great coffee and pastries around Boston’s south Shore. The EEOC is on a witch hunt to damage this business because they hire attractive young women to staff their stores. Further, all the decor is pink, including the t-shirts worn by the servers.

    Mary Lou’s is the kind of place that, if you’re a regular, they quickly learn how you like your coffee and can have it ready for you quickly.

    Read how the jackbooted EEOC is about to cost a small business thousands in legal fees.

    Local news video is here.

    Hint to Bloomberg and the other idiots in New York. New York has been the financial capital of the world for some time…just like London was the financial capital for some time.

    Load up enough oppressive rules both living in the city as well as to the financial industry; add a side order of higher taxes and the goose will leave. Suddenly New York will wake up and find all those high paying Wall Street jobs have gone away and won’t come back.

    Of course, they can keep the UN.

    Take a mold of her face and make gorilla cookies.

    Dear God, what is that thing?

  • wingmann

    I am truly sorry and embarrassed that she is in MY hometown…she gets gerrymandered in every year…hmmm.
    She is disgusting!
    Texas IS an awesome place but we have some serious issues going on here.

    I wonder how many basket weaving jobs have been created or saved by her.

  • bobdog

    I guess I’m not the only one that was thinking about that old “Yo momma so ugly…” gorilla cookies joke.

    I’m so ashamed of myself…

  • grayjohn

    All the salons in the known universe couldn’t make that bitch any less repulsive. That is jump back ugly!

  • octa bright

    What probably will happen is that the shops will either just do men or women. The businesses will have a smaller profit margin, the customers will have less choice, but that’s all right since the RULES are obeyed.

    As a man I have to state that in NYC the best haircuts are in old-school male-only salons anyway.

    This dumb and unjust decree actually helps very small businesses which exclusively focus on either gender.

    It’s only a matter of time though until Sandra Fluke or someone like her complains that she can’t get a haircut in a men’s barber shop.

    PS. Looks like moonbats don’t know the difference between a barber shop and a salon.

    Foooogly!!

    However, a full shave might make things a little less bizarre.

    Well said!! And since THAT is what the reFUGlicans have been offering US in NYC/NYS – remember the alternative was some Hispanic who looked like Grouch Marx – I AM ONE OF THOSE WHO HAVE VOTED WITH THEIR FEET at great personal expense, because I realized the time had come to draw the line, which was immediately crossed by encroaching moonbattery.

    Thus, more empty shuttered storefronts in NYC and all I can say is TANT MIEUX!

    Sorry for my French.

    NYC was a great wild and wooly place in the Eighties but the ballroom days are over, babay! Noone here gets out alive!

    Well, I am glad I did.

    parting is such sweet sorrow.. :-) (VERY HAPPY GRIN)

    F*CK OFF, BLOOMENBERGENZWERG, YOU PISS-UGLY LITTLE TRANSGENDERED GNOME!!!

    You have NO IDEA how many frustrated exasperated small business owners have crosses my doorstep to talk to me about their troubles.

    I just re-looked at those pictures and all I can say in my very best Ebonics is: Dayum, that shit nasty!
