    I’m impressed by the level of technical fart knowledge on this forum.

    here in Ohio, Gov. DeWine has asked us to wear a mask in public, here's my take.....

    1. if you voted for DeWine in the last election, do as he asks.

    2. if you didn't vote for DeWine in the last election and you still live in Ohio, do ask he asks.

    right now its voluntary, lets not get to compulsory of another shut down, both are at the governments discretion in a crisis and both would down right suck.

    So wear a mask for threat of another lockdown? That doesn't sound like freedom to me.

    Glad to see people choosing freedom and being skeptical of what the government is telling them. Maybe there's hope for us after all.

    right now I see it as being along the lines of helmet laws, I don't have to wear one when I ride, but there are advantages to wearing one when I do ride.

    It's kind of the reverse.

    Mask are to help protect others not you. Where as helmets and seat belts are used to protect you.

    The anti-mask folks don't mind infringing on the liberty of others by way of their actions in public where as seat belts and helmet laws are Nanny State nonsense that in no away affect anyone else.

    You not wearing a helmet or seat belt doesn't affect me when we are sharing the roadways. You not wearing a mask while we shop on the same aisle may.

    Some folks call that freedom, that would be incorrect. Freedom would be choosing to do what you want while not possibly causing harm to others.

    Government officials showed us that masks and distancing are unneccessary when they allowed hundreds of thousands of lowlifes and criminals to riot and loot and did nothing about it. In fact they encouraged it. The cat is now out of the bag and more people are finally realizing it.

    Science doesn't care what the government thinks. The cat will die all the same.

    Science has been corrupted and is all about control and money now. We learned that from MMGW.

    In that regard I can agree. However the science behind contagion and how to prevent spread is pretty well defined and accepted.

    I'd say even more like Stop signs. You're stopping for your safety and others. Nobody says "Hey, I'm a 'Merican and ain't no stop signs in the Constitution so I choose Freedom and F the gumbment."

    I know this is off topic but I wear glasses to keep bits of lead or jackets that are still traveling at a high rate of speed after impacting the backstop from penetrating my eyes. Sometimes I get a piece that punctures my face, but they always bounce off my glasses.

    ETA: Would be handy to protect the eyes in the case of a kaboom, too.

    Sure doesn't seem like it. Fauci has flip flopped and changed his mind like we change underwear. Wear a mask, don't need to wear a mask, wear a mask again. Guy is a moron. We just can't trust government to be honest with us.

    ...evidenced by the number of times to so-called scientific community has flip-flopped over the last few months. It's a "science" all right.

    I don't look to government officials for my science. I look to medical associations and research. You can go back as far as you like to find out how respiratory infections are spread and how to prevent them. It was nearly common knowledge in the Middle Ages and it's well researched and uniformly accepted.

    Remember these guys? They don't care about the talking heads or COVID.

    No, the talking heads flip flopped. Science has not. Go to any journal of medicine you like and look up respiratory infection and how to slow it's spread.


    ICYMI

    "Respiratory infections can be spread via ‘contact’ with droplets from expiratory activities such as talking, coughing and sneezing, and also from aerosol-generating clinical procedures. Droplet sizes predominately determine the times they can remain airborne, the possibility of spread of infectious diseases and thus the strategies for controlling the infections."

    Today it's all about money. They want more and more funding from the unwashed masses. Sad.

    I don't deny that fraud exists. The virus however isn't a fraud and we can help alleviate it's spread.
