If you can't wear a mask, you shouldn't be out in public. No excuse. I go to stores as soon as they open to avoid crowds. What ticks me off is to see people with a mask on but wearing it on their chin with nose/mouth exposed as I saw two dudes at Home Depot a few weeks ago, at 6:00 am.


The scared little Liberal has spoken.

Only if required by state law, as it is here in Texas. And only while I'm actually in the establishment.

Otherwise, nyet. Comrade.

Take your mask and wipe the cum shot from the floor in your bathroom. That's all I use mine for anyway.

I mean, I guess if you are in that demographic, over about 60 and not very healthy, you could just as easily die from the flu (0.02% people die from it, all things being equal.)
It could be. But I interact with my elderly family who are high risk, Iíve got asthma so Iím in the higher risk bucket as well. So why not, the vaccine and mask donít hurt me so why not just take a little extra precaution.

A hard hat on a job site is a mere soup bowl for your brain when dealing with huge items over head, so why wear a helmet? Itís a reminder of safety as much as it actually is a safety device. Why not treat the mask the same way, itís a mere reminder to be safe not touch your face, etc. Iím certainly not a mask hole whoís going to lecture others, thatís their choice.

Here are PA politicians admitting on a hot mic that the masks are just theater. They're bullshit.

The only time as an adult that I got the flu was when I got a flu shot. There has never in the history of the world been a vaccine for a coronavirus. Would be a first. Have at it. I'll pass.

BS - most years they hit maybe 30% - So are you always in the 30%? I'd say that 70% of the time you wouldn't have gotten it anyway.


BTW - Never had one and haven't had the flu, just so you know my odds - flew every week for work for the last 30 years and each of those weeks I worked in a different hospital. Probability is that I've been exposed to every strain there is, including CV-19 and nope, haven't got that either (that I know of).

If I lived in Florida, my mask would be on fire right now. No way I will wear one once this mandate is gone.

I hear you on this.

The negativity you read isn't about people having the option of wearing a mask or not... it's about the forcing of this edict on everyone.

I myself (resist wearing a mask) have no issues with those that want to.

Let me see if I can help you with this (though I doubt it): Masks do not provide protection from COVID19 for the wearer, nor anyone around them.

The government knows this, or they would have just issued masks to prisoners instead of letting them out of prison.

If masks worked, they would have just left the economy open, while requiring mask wearing.

It says right on the box of the paper masks that most people wear that those masks DO NOT provide any protection from viruses.

Studies have shown that wearing a cloth on your face (like a bandana), not only gives you zero protection, it actually increases your likelihood of contracting the virus if you come into contact with it.

Mask wearing is not about safety or protection, it is about enforced compliance with the edicts of dictator governors. But if you want to wear a mask the rest of your life, go ahead. I'll choose unfettered breathing.

The problem with not wearing a mask in a store is that people look at you like you are walking through a playground with your dick hanging out. I'm pretty sure stage 3 is that no one is getting fined for not wearing one. Stores may still require it for entry.

Well, at restaurants, the 'rona hangs out at the entrance, and in the restrooms, therefore, it makes sense that the 'rona hangs out at the entrance to grocery stores. Wear the mask to enter the store, then take it off. You know that half the store works have their noses sticking out of their masks, rendering them even more useless. The masks, not the workers.
