I'd prefer to put it like the guy who screamed at Johnny Cash's granddaughter in Nashville. If you wear a mask to protect yourself against COVID, you're just weak. It's not necessary. All this chaos is because we're testing more, so naturally they're going to be more positive tests.
If you wear a mask as so-called "protection" you might as well embroider it with a "Vote Biden" message on the front because that's what you're doing.
It appears you don't understand the real reason to wear a mask.
Sure I do, so you can scream to the world that you believe the MSM and will vote for Biden in the fall and believe that the government can take away our personal freedoms whenever it wants.
Do you ever get tired of pretending to be a wack job conservative?
I am expressing my views and the views of many conservatives, including the President of the United States. So if you are calling the President a wack job, you are insulting all of his supporters too.
Not really. An incredibly extremist view such as yours doesn't really fall in line with many whoare arguing against masks.
Never mind though. I'm sure you are having fun so don't let me rain on your party.
I wear a mask but do not vote for Biden. Because I do not live in the USA.
In other words, wearing a mask has nothing to do with your political voting behaviiour.
I don't wear a mask outside as the changes to become infected outside are incredibly small. But as soon as I step into a building, especially the ones with airco, I put my mask on. To protect myself and to protect others.
Not to wear a mask in buildings, trains etc is showing egocentric thinking and also showing off an ignorance that's close to stupidity.
Typical foreigner trying to impose his values on Americans. Americans can decide these things for themselves.
Sy, so go ahead and play "Russian roulette", I will pass, thank you
I haven't been wearing a mask nor does anyone I know and I still don't know a single person who has gotten this thing. I'm more likely to die in a car accident on my way to Walmart than to die from catching COVID in a Walmart. Should I stop driving too? Can the government mandate that I can't drive?
Hey, I don't know anyone personally either, but that does not negate the death toll. It has been global so I know that it is not fake news. You may well survive, most do, but for the 3 percent for whom it has proved lethal why take the chance of being a possible carrier over a bit of inconvenience?
Until a vaccine is available, a little caution may well be in order.
Statistics say your claim of dying on the way to WalMart are completely, 100% false. Why would you say such a thing? Just trolling?
Equally, I don't know a person who has got this covid-19 thing in my community. More so, people sneezing, coughing, and pollutes the air. Should the government tell me to pack and left? Seriously, these are sighs of cold symptoms. Good for me to wear a protective mask to avoid an infection.
soo by your logic less people would die from the coronavirus if we simply stopped testing? ....makes sense to me. And no face masks? Hm sounds like a great idea. Why don't you do that, while I just sit back with my face mask and watch as you show us all how it's done.
Death rates have been dropping. Doing all this testing just makes us look bad and has dramatically increased the number of reported cases. Very few people get sick from COVID. Like I said, I haven't been wearing a mask and I'm fine. Everyone I know is fine. We need to get out in the world and build immunity to this thing or our economy is going to crash. And frankly, I'll just go ahead and say it, if people have to die in order to keep the American way of life, then that's just how it's going to be. The vast majority of those people are old anyway and weren't going to be around that much longer.
A very callous remark “The vast majority of those people are old anyway and weren't going to be around that much longer.”, and untrue; a lot of younger people, and healthy people, including children, do die from Covid-19. Albeit older people (over 50) and people with underlying health issues e.g. diabetes, are at high risk.
The USA is testing 600,000 a day and finding 60,000 a day infected; in the UK we are testing 160,000 a day and finding less than 600 a day infected (do the maths) e.g. 10% tested in USA are infected, less than 0.5% tested in the UK are infected.
Herd immunity is not going to work, without killing over quarter of a million (or more) Americans in the process.
Besides, if you look at the latest data; deaths from Covid-19 in the USA have increased by more than 20% over the past week, and are still rising sharply. Deaths in the USA from Covid-19 is now back to what it was a month ago (and rising), current average of 740 a day (and rising). Deaths from Covid-19 in the UK is the lowest it’s been since the 25th March, and currently still falling, just 21 people died of Covid-19 yesterday in the UK.
Where I live now in eastern Canada Maritimes, under a 100 deaths total. It is the lowest rate of covid19 in North America. I see the US at times, a 1000 a day. Then Trump states the US has one of the lowest rated country for covid19. It's Lies, lies lies.
My county in the US has a population of 32,600. We have had three (supposedly) covid deaths. One of my old friends who lives in Kansas City, Missouri, recently told me he knew of literally no one at all who had had any kind of flu. (He has always had a very large social circle, as well as a large circle of co-worker friends.) I have met exactly one person who lives in my county who said she had had the flu--back in January. So my count of "cases" I know of here is ONE, since January first. I do know of five people living elsewhere who have had the flu since January first. All recovered without problems.
The pandemic itself is a lie.
I'm sure the odd place in the US there at a low rate of covid.
Yet,Trump calls covid a war. About 180,000 Americans have died from Covid. That is US citizens killed more than all the US troops killed at home and overseas in all the US wars dating back to world war 2. About 1 out of every 4 persons in the world will be an American who dies of covid. My sister inlaw who is a brain surgeon died today from covid.
I agree that covid has been handled horrible. Poverty will kill more people than anything. Still the practice of protection plan is a must or it will be never ending.
The part of shutting down jobs leads toward our worst extreme poverty since the dirty 30s. Not even world war 2, shut down so many jobs. Now the lack of healthy food and lack of excerize from lack of work. Is the ultimately stupidest, very dangerous and freaky thing the government has ever done.
"Weak" doesn't quite cover it--although I suppose that could be a part of it. After all, the only way a person could believe there is a pandemic in progress is if they have been hiding in their basement for so long that they have almost no business, family, or social contacts, by which they might observe that no one is sick. I have occasionally met people like that: now 70 years old, never had any friends, never had a job, never had a boyfriend or girlfriend (let alone married), always lived with Mom and Dad, etc. I would characterize such people as "weak."
That's almost the only type of person who could possibly be so divorced from reality. There are a few other possibilities though: invalids and people living in nursing homes, group homes, prisons, or other institutional facilities whose only contact with the outside world is the TV.
Makes no sense. Use the face mask against contagious and spreading infections.
You're entitled to express your opinion. But you're still selfish. This post just shows your disregard for the safety of others. My grandfather has type 2 diabetes and my grandmother has lymphodema. My mother works as a personal carer for both of them. She wears a mask when she is with them. does that make her a so-called 'Liberal weakling'?
Why does wearing a mask have to be political? I went to China for a summer vacation and I saw Chinese citizens wearing masks when they were sick with minor diseases such as the common cold. They don't have a problem with it because they know that if it is for the good of society then they will do their part for their country. If you really want to do your part for America, then wear the damn mask!
Trump ban the Chinese to travel to the US. Even though you have 150 times greater chance of catching and dieing from a American than a Chinese.
That's why Canada stopped US from boarder Crossing recently.
It's a dioblical germ. It was made to resist vaccinations. What are you gonna do? Sit in your room for the rest of your life and hope its a short one?
You should definitely go test your theory.
It throws a monkey wrench into everything. Shutting down workers, doctors and farmer markets causes greater health risks to many greater dieses and treatments. Poverty kills most of all, so it was not handled well. I feel our kids will handle it much better next time.
... also if everybody tests positive for the C/19. Germ, but don't have symptoms, what does that MEAN?
Please do tell!

Memorial Day Weekend 2020 might go down in history as the end of America.I can't think of a time where I was less confident that there was a chance that we could come together to defeat COVID-19 because there appears to be a major gap between those that understand how the virus spreads and those...

On another thread here at Hubpages, some have brought up the subject of the possibility we may need a law to enforce citizens to wear a mask when in public. In my view, a law in regards to protecting the health of citizens in a society should be well-founded, with medical information that the law...

This was during Trump's speech accepting the nomination.Why isn't everyone wearing a mask? Why aren't they sitting six feet apart? How could this be allowed to happen?
