I don't blame you. The governor is in hiding until California makes a move. He will be in lock step with them.

It's a sign of stupidly following mandates that have absolutely nothing to do with the actual science. I have posted a number of SCIENTIFIC articles that all demonstrate that mask usage is pretty much useless with this virus. From the New England Journal of Medicine, to the CDC itself, they have basically admitted that mask wearing is essentially useless, yet you cling to what some governor tells you to do. That is your choice. But don't tell me that I have to wear one to make you feel better. If you are that scared of a virus that you have to take a test to even know you have it, stay at home hiding under your bed. We will let you know when it is safe to come back out.

I hate to think what would happen to you if there was a real depression again in this country w/o safety nets. Or a military invasion. You are so open to propaganda. And you act like you decided there's no use in taking safety measures anymore for any reason that doesn't involve an AK-47.
Sometimes you just have to hunker down or give up something for awhile to make it through.

That's a pretty blackness on your pot calling the kettle black.
He said nothing about safety measures, only that the science doesn't support wearing masks. Especially the non N-95 mask.

Safety is prevent infection by hygiene and intelligent choices in behavior and with whom you come into close contact. It also includes maintaining a healthy life style.
-

Somehow burning, physical attacks and looting en-masse at night doesn't fit healthy life style but it sends the anti Trump message. That seems to be an ok behavior.

We're talking about the DemPanic, not a depression or an invasion. Try to stay on the subject for once.

Propaganda? When did leading medical experts become propaganda? I didn't cite Field and Stream, I cited the New England Journal of Medicine. In case you didn't know, it is considered the most respected medical journal in the world. I also cited the CDC. What are your sources? Rachal Maddow?

I am all for measures that actually work, not some hokum pushed by a far left wing group(s) attempting to silence those with dissenting opinions. Ask yourself something, why are the social media companies, all left wing by the way, trying to silence anyone that doesn't tow the line for the left? Yesterday, they removed a tweet from Trump where he retweeted CDC stats.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/techn...us-death-toll/

Anyone interested in the truth or real science, would hardly be looking to shutdown those with different opinions.

And sometimes you need to pull the curtain back to see who is pulling the levers and why.

I don't give up freedom. Certainly not on the whimsy of over controlling politicians.

Those who give up freedom for safety deserve neither.

The science doesn't agree with the politics. It's a citizen's duty to question the judgement of the politicians when the experts and the scientists tell us they are wrong.

Dr. Fauci has been on both sides of this issue. He is only one man, not a group with consensus. So I question his judgement.

If there was a military invasion, the left would wave the white flag immediately, and give up their freedoms. "To saves lives" they would say.

Remember, even during the Great Depression 75% were working, unfortunately it stayed that way while FDR was POTUS, but I'm sure
it was someone else's fault.
