    Those of us who truly believe in freedom don't care if you choose to wear a mask. Knock yourself out and do it. We expect you to respect us with the very same courtesy.

    Cripes, they just need to put their mask on and sand drywall joints to see it won't work. With the exception of the N95. This is so simple, can't understand why they are so adamant about masks preventing an airborne virus from spreading.

    I used to work for a medical device manufacturing company that had a cleanroom (think it was class 2, can't remember). It had negative pressure, masks, gowns, gloves, hairnet, shoe covers, washing were all required to enter. The point was to minimize (still couldn't stop) particulate from getting in the product. It was NOT sufficient to stop virus or bacterial spread. The product was sterilized for that.

    Masks just don't work for this. Don't get too close to people, wash your hands, and don't touch your face. Maintain a healthy lifestyle. And that's about all you can do.

    And do you know why Americans have the strongest immune systems in the world? Because Americans don't wear masks.

    lol exactly. My Dr., a infectious disease specialist, and Dr. Fraudci fan girl, said the level 1 medical mask they hand out, and you see people wearing, are essentially useless.

    take your vitamins, good ones, and get some sun as well.

    It’s the internet no one actually gets the last laugh.

    I’m just messing around, I don’t work 70 hrs a week anymore:D At least we can agree on the masks.
    My son was in the Marines, all the respect in the world for them. I was just a National Guard 11B ground pounder.

    So are naive enough to feel comfortable with any type of mask?

    So what you’re saying is that they should mandate N95s? :D

    Just kidding.

    Yep, talked to my Parisian friend this morning, 100% accurate. He must be thinking of Sweden.

    You have absolutely no proof of the effectiveness of masks.

    Did you offer to deliver the old couples groceries? Or does your caring only go so far as virtue signaling?

    I carry concealed because it makes no sense.
    Mask or no, you will die.

    Scam? If I did not catch this virus, know coworkers that caught covid (some were not able to return to work), worked at buildings that were heavily infected with 27 deaths, and ignored the science, I would probably also question it.

    I wear a mask as a fashion statement. I have no definitive knowledge if it does any good. I have a couple of cute ones, and, believe me, it definitely improves my appearance. Wear it or don’t wear it. Your choice. To call me names because I choose to wear it makes you no better than those who would force me to wear it.

    Anyway, keyboard commandos don’t bother me. Mess with me man to man and I might take notice, and then, again, maybe not.

    Your ignorance is showing, again. The “science” on covid is not yet reached a consensus.

    I went back to the INVENTOR of PCR. How am I ignoring science?

    Everyone, all 330,000,000 can test positive for Covid, we all carry Covid viruses. Thats FAR, FAR different than having an active infection, but that is exactly what's going on. You have ZERO idea why they died.

    IF it was Covid, and new studies suggest it's passed via fecal matter, you all need to wash better.

    The GOVERNMENT does not force me to wear a shirt nor shoes. I don't have to wear a shirt nor shoes unless I want to go into a private business. In my house, I can be naked. Outside, walking around the neighborhood, as long as my junk is covered, I am safe from legal persecution. No one can tell me I have to wear anything, just be "decent" and not show off my privates. But some are saying that I have to wear a mask even if I am out in the open. I say, no I don't. It's someone FORCING ME to wear something I don't have to in places where I am not going to harm anyone that gets me riled up. Again, the gov't does NOT force me to wear a shirt, or shoes, or even pants - yes, walking around in your underwear is legal, just not looked kindly on.

    Not everyone will test positive for SARS-CoV-2, which is the test used for covid 19. Is your source combing the other 6 covid viruses? Where are you getting your numbers?

    Yes, we wash our hands frequently. The outbreak was covid 19, and those that died were covid positive.

    I’m thinking about wearing my Chem suit with a full face respirator/CBRN canisters for my Halloween outfit. I’ll pass out candy.

    I figure most kids will run away in terror, which means more Butterfingers for me.
