From what others told me who did watch the show it was a wonder they never hurt themselves.

They would say "Don't try this at home" on the show sometimes. My thought was "You guys shouldn't even be trying this."

Haha, to bad you didn't get there in time to spread some of that concrete somewhere useful, lol.

In other news, Pinetop-Lakeside has mandated mask wearing, but the couple of times I've been in a store in Pinetop, the owner was not enforcing it. The WalMarts in both Show Low and Taylor have masks required signs, but not going overboard enforcing it, same with Subway Taylor. Shelves pretty much back to normal at the Taylor Walmart anyways. But, there was an article in the White Mountain Independent saying that folks in Pinetop are called 911 to report folks not wearing masks. Yes, really. It is coming to this.

Show Low has cancelled the Fourth of July parade and most of the festivities except they will still light off fireworks. Many fourth of July events are cancelled around the mountain. But not Eagar. I like the letter that the Mayor of Eagar put out.

Pretty inspirational! Thx. The best paragraph from the letter:
As grim as Covid19 is portrayed under the most drastic scenario, I dare say that we are facing a much more serious pandemic here in America. We are currently in the midst of the nation’s first political pandemic. Never before in the history of America has ignorance and bigotry been more celebrated. Never before has our government been more eager and willing to take away freedoms from the citizenry. Never before has the citizenry been more willing to give them up.Benjamin Franklin warned that “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety”. I believe his warning is as applicable today as it ever was. Some will say that these safety measures have not impacted individual liberty. To them I would quip Thomas Jefferson: “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” The right to move about freely in public is one of the cornerstones of American democracy. In a panicked frenzy, created by the media, state and local governments trampled that right wholesale. History will not judge us kindly for our actions over the past several months.

I was there within minutes of the wreck happening. However there was no way to get the wet concrete out of the laid over truck and by the time they got it upright (close to two hours later) even if it wasn't hard they had disconnected the batteries to prevent a fire and also boogered up the drum in the recovery.

Hopefully the call center is telling the 911 callers that doing so is a crime.

Yeah I saw the Mayor's letter as a friend that recently moved to Eagar sent me a copy. They said there were a lot of people out for the parade today.

Gotta love the stark irony: America celebrating its freedom while complying with masks orders by a bunch of power hungry politicians.

Masks not mandatory in Prescott / Prescott Valley. Many stores recommended but did not require. A few did. We did not go in those.

Personally I don't see the issue with wearing a mask. If I go into an area with many people, I wear a mask as protection for myself and will purposely avoid close contact with people.

But then again, my trips to stores and being in large gatherings is limited anyway (by choice).

The only large gathering you will find me in is at Church, but as part of the Security Team I am outside the crowd. Church has been on-line since mid March and not sure when we will open the building again.

Voluntary wearing a mask isn't the issue.

The problem comes in when wearing them is mandatory (and a sign of obedience) despite it being proven they don't work as the .gov claims.

Exactly. There's some talk on other forum sites about fines for not wearing masks. There is actually a guy in California that started a thread on the 3rd or 4th encouraging folks to snitch on their neighbors if they had 'illegal' gatherings at their homes, back yards, etc. Down to checking for out of state plates, etc. and of course mask wearing.

Personally, I just don't know why, but every time I've seen on the news folks over in Japan over the years and half the time they're going about with those masks on, they just look so sad and/or scared. If I personally felt my health was such that it would be best for me to wear a mask to protect me or others, I would stay home until that threat subsided within me.

I won't wear one now because I already had this dang thing back in January.

But that doesn't mean you won't catch it again.

The issue I have seen with the mask is that the ones with the vents in them are the problem. The virus goes out through the vent and therefore it is airborne for anyone without a mask.

Masks without vents seem to be better suited for wear.

The masks won't stop the virus from getting through if airborne. It also enters through the eyes so absent a full face mask you really aren't protected.

The thing is, if masks work why do we need to social distance...and if social distancing works why do we need masks?

Kind of like the saying - One is none, two is more

Outside of staying home and ordering everything delivered, masks and social distancing are good practices to follow.

In the end, we are both free to practice what we believe is the best approach.
