Will be very interesting to find out how effective mask wearing and hand washing is this fall/winter when the regular cold and flu season begins. I know not one person sick with this virus so far but I know many that get colds and flu each year. Could be a real mess, or not. We’ll see.

NEW kiddie party GAME!
Fauci says.
Do what he says THIS WEEK!

It’s the flu! Seasonal flu or a mere cold will test positive. So will just signing up to be tested in FL, or dying in a motorcycle accident or falling off at all ladder.
Meanwhile, almost NO seasonal flu or non COVID pneumonia deaths?

A Frito Bandito bandanna will protect from the flu. What have you been smoking?

Store clerks and managers are not doctors. They should not be prescribing anything to me that could be detrimental to my health. Not their job!
The government didn't come up with mask wearing, they are the just the muscle behind it, they take their cues from the medical community. Who seem to think it's a good idea...so here we are...

Don't let it get to you. Its an interesting phenomenon.
I've made the comparison before but they are very much like Leftist Climate Change activists. They simply don't comprehend how anyone can see the science and evidence, or lack thereof, differently than they do.
The believers use the same tactics against people who disagree. Shaming, public humiliation, name-calling, insults to intelligence, accusations of conspiracy theory, etc. Even to the point of justifying violence.
Its a visceral reaction and very SJW-ish. It's puzzling to me given the crowd we are hanging with on this forum.

It's is Big Brother telling you what to do for your own good OR trying to guilt you into doing something for the good of others. I'm reminded of a post here on SB. Coronavirus, a disease so deadly, you have to be tested to know if you have it.

Why is the government ... just the muscle behind it... not mandating that people breath, eat, relieve themselves, sleep or outlaw people flapping their arms until they go to the moon? It's because people are not helpless children who need to be told what to do for their own good. People can figure out what is in their best interest all by themselves.

The death rate of this is practically non-existent; a measly 0.28% - with many dubious deaths allocated to this hysteria.

I told the HR women a couple of weeks ago that there is more going on in the world than Coronavirus. She raised her eyebrows in sincere surprise asking me what that could be.

The virus was mishandled by governments. That made it appear more deadly than necessary. Governments did what governments do best. FAIL

It may simply be that they want to appear vital and needed, as if they are doing something...being proactive....LOL
Yet as we also know, most of the tools in the governments tool chest are of the do as I say or else variety. So it can be said the governments involvement in all this is running true to form.
