    Default Ian Smith New Jersey gym owner

    I talked with this guy this weekend. He had a shirt on that I liked that said "Beware the Alpha Variant" and he's definitely an Alpha Variant.

    Heard his story about his 2 year battle with the government regarding lockdowns in New Jersey. He lost his business license and has currently has over $4,000,000 in fines. Locked out of his business because police and government came and changed his locks in the middle of the night. So he took the doors off the hinges to keep from being locked out. Moved his gym equipment outside every day so people can still work out. Was sent to jail for failure to confirm to mandates. He currently is surviving on donations and t-shirt sales because the state has a lien against any membership payments. So, it's free to come participate.

    It's definitely a David v Goliath story and I was impressed by his and his business partner's courage and determination.

    A prime example of what they do to any that dares to stand up to their unconstitutional tyranny.
    Definite dem/socialist agenda at play, imho. As that is exactly how those totally worthless vermin operate. ---- -Tyr

    Why anyone lives in NJ beats the Hell out of me. That I recall, I have never heard one good thing about the place. Just bad.

    That being said, I would have no problem showing up and working out in his "shut down" facility just because I think the State is WAY out of control.

    Except ....

    He's offering free memberships to anyone that agrees to not get vaccinated. That's as bullshit as the State shutting him down. It's not his business whether or not anyone is vaccinated, anymore than it is the State's nor anyone else's.

    Same discrimination - other side of the coin.

    Except he isn't throwing the weight of government behind his requirement.
