    BREAKING NEWS⚠️⚠️⚠️

    Did you guys know the FDA just approved a drug that reduces your chance of getting COVID-19 by 5X? It’s trade name is called Wearamaskasshole. Side effects include mild inconvienience, possible victim complex, fear of people thinking you are a sheep, being ostracized by your anti-vax plandemic bros, and the power to stop your own asymptomatic transmission as this country stubbornly dives right on into that second wave. Check with your doctor, or really anyone, to see if #Wearamaskasshole is right for you.

    Wait... not only that, it stops the Country from being shutdown again. People can pay bills and the economy won’t tank. Imagine that!!!!

    I missed the findings of the double blind study that supports your postulation.

    If the effects of hydrochloroquine and Azithromiacin are considered anecdotal, I suspect your 5X postulation is akin to a fairy tale or an old wives tale.

    Enjoy your virtue signaling tho...

    Wearing a mask is nothing new to prevent the spread of a virus. During the 1918/1919 Spanish flu pandemic they were used here in the U.S.

    Or is the cure worse than the disease?

    Bloodletting was also still popular then, wasn't it?

    Gather the useful idiots and queue the leaches!

    I don't know. Was it? I haven't heard any scientist today suggest bloodletting to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

    Just pointing out the absurdity of stating that masks were used during the Spanish flu in an attempt to normalize them, despite no evidence to their efficacy.

    Your response suggests that if dim little Fauci recommended bloodletting, you would be busy procuring leaches.

    No, the cure gets the disease under control, without this 'cure' you will be without a reasonably functional economy for along time.

    Yes, the stock market is "insane" for interpreting positive economic data as a possible future recovery. Simply insane.

    Amusing that you think you know better than someone with some actual expertise.

    Lol, you clearly missed the latest infection figures and the trend line.

    I stopped following them months ago because they are notoriously inaccurate and unreliable. The only numbers that are relevant and important now are the number of daily deaths, which have declined considerably since the April high and are not increasing. Sorry to burst the bubbles of the slurpers, but it is what it is.

    My portfolio is doing great. How's yours? Are you a winner or a loser?

    What would you have them do back then? I applaud their attempt at controlling the spread of the virus. I have listened to many of the medical folks and scientist that have been talking about controlling the spread of Covid-19 over the last several months and I certainly believe that wearing a mask is helpful. If you don't want to wear one, then don't.

    I thought masks keep the person wearing it from spreading the disease, not reduces your risk of getting it.

    Pick a side and stick to it, please. Your mixed messages aren't helping your cause.

    The claim is that cloth and surgical masks do some protection for the wearer but are primarily to slow the spread from the wearer. How can you still not know this?

    Wait, I thought only the N95 masks or better lessened the chance of catching WuFlu. I thought the cloth masks supposedly just kept your spittle from contacting others?
