Seriously why do you keep posting this? What is your problem with other people that want to do what they consider the right thing to protect other people from contracting the virus?
How is wearing a mask taking away your identity? If anything it is protecting your identity from the facial recognition programs that are so prevalent these days.
You do not want to wear a mask then don’t. But do not expect that private companies and even government agencies will cater to you without one if they have a policy in place.

Have a nice day.

That’s so they don’t cough on the patient, while their hands are doing the work, and they can’t cover up dude.

Do some research, turn off Fox News and the InfoWars channel.
Use proper equipment, and yes, even a cheap homemade mask will help protect you.

Dude you tipped your hand on how political you are. Stop name calling, it serves no purposes. Try being nice instead of making assumptions. You can site the CDC, just because they print it doesn’t mean it’s accurate.

Update May 28th, CDC current mortality rate .026 and expected to go down from there. That’s approx. double the most severe flu season rate. And we, allowed the world to be locked down, that’s what really needs to be examined, don’t ya think.

Virtually nothing gets closed for a severe flu outbreak, so twice that causes a worldwide shut down, come on, we need to rethink this.

Mortality rate is higher. People who died and were never tested because there were no tests available.

Where did all these “no Masks” idiots come from?
I protect You and you refuse to protect, my wife, my grandchildren, my 89 year old mother-in-law, and my para-medic son.
This is a war, and there will be more in years to come.
You, who don’t help in this pandemic should be held for treason. Especially on this Memorial Day, when true patriots honor the brave men and women who protected us, past, present, and future.
Where do you get these crazy ideas??????

Read the data. Stop calling people idiots, it serves no purpose. Today, Thurs. May 28th. .026 mortality rate per the reluctant reporting of the CDC. As more data is sifted through it it the expectation that it will be adjusted DOWNWARD further.

Those are the facts as best as can be deciphered at this point in time. Also, many states listed the Wuhan virus as cause of death, convienently leaving out the other severe diseases the poor patients ( in nursing homes) also had previously had contracted. All is necessary is to think of what has transpired, and don’t call people idiots, it doesn’t solve the bigger problem.

I have decided that, if the owner and employees of an establishment aren’t wearing masks I shall not return to their business. I won’t say anything. I’ll purchase what I went for and then not go back. The mask I wear protects them Don’t they care enough to protect me? The mask works to preserve the freedom of others.

Hmmm, as for the article on the drug bust…
I am not sure that 705 pounds of marijuana really count as “trafficing narcotics”.
I think that the statutes (at least on the federal level) do not include MJ as a narcotic, even though it does fall under the controlled substances act. MJ is a schedule 1 drug, while most narcotics (opiates and their derivatives) fall under schedule 2.

Tell that to the govenors of NY, NJ, CT, who knowingly ordered infected patients into nursing homes, where thousands died. But the MSM doesn’t report that. Now that criminal.

So where were they supposed to send them? The hospitals were overloaded as it was. People who are treated in hospitals are regularly released to rehab centers. Next time send them to your house.

Past generations have made great sacrifices to protect America. We’re merely being asked to wear masks to protect each other. We have rights, yes. But we also have responsibilities, they go hand in hand. Be considerate of others.

I’m a little concerned about the Harbor Freight jack stand recall. I have two Harbor Freight 3-ton jack stands. They look exactly like the 3-ton stand in the picture, the only differences being that they are painted black (not red) , they are labelled “Black Jack Pro Series” (not Pittsburgh), the labels are a different shape and location, and there is no SKU anywhere on the units. The pawl mentioned in the article is nice and sharp. Taken together, the differences suggest that mine are likely not the items in question. I will call HF to confirm. In the meantime, please spare me the pious lectures about Harbor Fright. They accomplish nothing.

I think what he is inferring was that he expects grief for his choice of buying from Harbor Freight. Believe it or not, there are tool snobs out there that look down on people who save money by purchasing equivalent tools for one fourth the cost of the ones that come to your shop in a big truck.
Once Craftsman and Snap-On started offshoring some (actually, a lot) of their tool production, I found that HF had equivalent quality at a much lower price. And, you can pop in there if needed to exchange your faulty hand tool as needed, instead of waiting for the truck to come by on its route every other week. Same lifetime no-hassle warranty, but I’ve never managed to break any of the Pittsburg ratchets like my trusty old pearhead Craftsman. That one was replaced by a Chinese-made one of inferior quality. I should have tried to find a rebuild kit for my old one.

What a laugh, the same CDC said up to 2.2 million deaths, NEVER HAPPENED. the mortality rate is slightly higher than a severe flu season, when no shut down was remotely contemplated. Do your research. Gary made a point, pay attention to The FACTS, they are readily available.

Billy Bob Thornton

Update this just in May 28th CDC reports .026 mortality rate and expected to be lowered as more data is sifted through. Currently approx. twice that of a severe flu season. Think about that for a minute. Nothing essentially gets curtailed for the flu, yet the world goes on lockdown. This needs to be looked at, especially because the loss of life was the most concentrated in nursing homes in this country.

2 million deaths never happened because states did something about it. Masks, social distancing, self quarantining.

I enjoy discovering masks are a hot topic. Who knew. This will be over soon, and hopefully the real data will be published. If, and I say if it is, I hope the site will post an article after the results are in. That should be equally entertaining.

Please do the research, the vast majority by age group have been older people in nursing homes, or had other maladies that made them compromised. The govenors of NY, PA, NJ and CT ORDERED INFECTED PATIENTS back into nursing homes. Google NYS Dept. Of Health order dated March 25th, 2020. Unless your informed you will feed the system of the I’ll informed. In that case, the govenor ordered the infected patients ( approx. 4,600) back into nursing homes and did not utilize, the Hope Hospital Ship, 1,000 beds, the Jacob Habits center 2, 900 beds. But instead sentenced many elderly to their death. Stop with the superficial, and go after those who brought the scarry thing upon us due to their malfeasance. I suspect, they will get away with virtual manslaughter.

The virus will still go through even the best N98 mask and is half the size of the smallest hole in an N95. Both of these offer more protection that homemade ones. Just pointing out a fact. I think we are being duped, just so we can FEEL safe when we actually are not. Yet another vet.

The mask isn’t to stop a virus particle. It’s to stop much larger water droplets in your breath going out and droplets from others coming into you. There are lots of viruses in each droplet.

I’m with you Gary.
Let the sheep fall in line and wear their mask. If the mask *really* does any good, then they’re protected from us heathens that refuse to participate in the sham-demic.
Their posturing and complaining on proves how easy it is now to shut down our country and convince people to give up their basic rights just because the news whips up a frenzy and sows fear among the sheep. The media also encourages those who they’ve cowed into submission to practice virtue signaling by excoriating those of us who have seen through the carefully orchestrated scam and live our lives as free people.

what exactly is the current “mask” supposed to do other than making someone feel they are doing “something”. When it started you needed a N95 mask – nothing else would work. Then there were none. So now instead of N95, just a bandanna is ok. A bandanna won’t even filter out dust – much less a virus… It is a very interesting social experiment.

N95 Protects the person wearing it. The “bandana protects the people around you when you sneeze or cough. Not complicated.

It’s unfortunate that there are a few that feel they are deprived of their freedom by wearing a mask yet are perfectly happy to take someones else life and liberty by infecting them with their cough or sneeze. Benjamin Franklin warned against such thinking. “If the majority of the citizens do not willingly follow the law then there can be no liberty.” I’m grateful you are in the minority.
