The Science Turns Against America’s Mask

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 5/30/2020 5:21:06 AM

No less than the New England Journal of Medicine has dealt a body blow to America’s growing army of mask fascists with the news that “wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.” The reasons for this are both simple and logical: We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes).

So then as of today, the New England Journal of Medicine has said not to wear masks, and I also thought I read yesterday that the CDC said we did not have to wear masks except around the very sick. . No wonder everything is such a mess; none of them can agree on anything!

The masks are a symbol of the liberal movement..."we are in it together". I laugh when I see the idiot wearing a mask driving the care, riding a bike, walking the dog, etc. It reminds me of that creepy little nerd that wants to join an important club and they feel important when they put the stupid mask on their face. What needs to happen, someone needs to make a statement and provide everyone guidelines on this issue. I'm tired of reading that WHO, New England Journal of Medicine says you do not have to wear the mask and then you have those at CDC say, yes wear the dirty mask.

OK, A new questions: If an uninfected person encounters a person with COVID-19, by what fraction does the wearing of a mask reduce the risk of becoming infected? If a person with COVID-19 encounters an uninfected person, by what fraction does the wearing of a mask reduce the risk of passing the infection? The answer == crickets == tumble weed. Our blessed CDC and WHO (all bow) have failed to perform quite simple virology tests to address this contentious area of politics. Another question. Democrats have much higher infection rates than Republicans. Why? And Why do Republicans not wear masks whereas Democrats do?

I agree, #2. The whole thing is a farce. There a diehards at work that still wear them. I suspect it has more to do with the image. As I said before, you can tell in very little time where people get their information. And most of them are not getting it from conservative sources.

Seems like Trump could get out there, mention a couple of these findings, and shut down this stupid mask garbage. Yesterday I saw an old Nam Vet in the store with a mask, but a shirt that read, "I have PTSD--Pretty Tired of Stupid Democrats" so it's not just lefties with the masks. People are still scared, thanks to the Enemedia.

The only way to get people to stop wearing face masks is for Trump to insist on wearing them!

# 1 correction - I guess it was the WHO who said you can take off your mask unless you are around someone who is sick. So many contradictions coming from the experts that it is hard to keep up with them all. My pet parakeet could do a better job managing this whole Covid 19 virus than the "experts" who are in charge.

Our governor has said masks are no longer required, yet we had a 'Karen' call the sheriff's department to complain about a store manager who was letting shoppers shop, without masks. Masks are the liberal equivalent of red 'MAGA' ball caps. It shows the world that you are a good and caring person, unlike the people not wearing masks, who want to kill you.

Like the red Trump 2020 ball cap make all masks with the logo and see the mask come off or people on the left offended by the red mask. By August anyone still wearing a mask will most certainly be identified as a democrat. The mask is a hoax to promote no gatherings and voting by mail in ballots. This is all a political stunt to wreck a once booming economy and steal an election to beat President Trump. It's a new kind of war and we better be ready to fight.

I don't wear a mask. Leave me alone. If you don't like it, stay back 25 feet, a mile, whatever distance you feel safe. And shut up, I am not interested in a conversation about my liberties with strangers. I have not given strangers leave to tell me what to do. Thank you.

As the world grapples with the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, ongoing turmoil in the Middle East and Beijing’s brutal interventions in Hong Kong, the organization once charged with offering solutions to such problems is sidelined with nobody listening to its calls for “peace, harmony and global unity.” U.N.

I'm already seeing it on Twitter: "Thank goodness we have Bill Barr." Which makes sense. Here's his plan of action on the beasts overtaking our cities under color of civil rights protests, according to the New York Post: Attorney General Bill Barr will go after violent demonstrators with a 1968 law meant to quell rioting. “We must have law and order on our streets and in our communities,” Barr said Saturday at DOJ headquarters in Washington, DC. “It is a federal crime to cross state lines or to use interstate facilities to incite or participate in violent rioting,” he said. “We will enforce these laws.” Barr accused “anarchistic and far-left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics”

The death by cop of George Floyd in Minneapolis was grotesque, a clearer example of police brutality that has otherwise rarely been filmed for all to see. Even if, as has been reported, Floyd did not die of asphyxiation or strangulation as it appeared, his death was without a doubt caused by that officer’s cruel and unnecessary action and the inaction of his fellow officers who stood by and watched. That officer has been charged with third degree murder and the other officers have been fired. Judicial due process will ensue, both state and federal.

On May 27, the American coronavirus death toll rose to six figures: 100,000 lives lost. That’s a very sad number, made sadder when we ponder that the virus prevents loved ones from saying goodbye in person and makes any funeral an extremely small event. America’s largest national newspapers have all made dramatic front pages out of the number. The New York Times came first on Sunday, filling its entire front page and three more pages with names of the victims. USA Today followed on Wednesday with an entire front page in black and white and photos of the dead. The Washington Post waited until we reached the horrible number

The idea that minorities vote Democrat is an ingrained assumption of American politics. But Mike Garcia — the son of a Mexican immigrant — is proof that Hispanic Republicans are alive and well in Donald Trump’s GOP. Earlier this month, Garcia flipped a Democratic congressional district in California — the seat formerly held by scandal-scarred “throuple” Rep. Katie Hill — into the Republican column for the first time in 22 years. Garcia, a 44-year-old former Navy fighter pilot, is now a newly sworn-in member of Congress, representing a district where more than half the population is nonwhite, 35 percent of it Hispanic —

Joe Biden refers often to his roots in middle and working-class America. Speaking in his birthplace of Scranton, Pa., last year, Biden stated: “We were raised to believe family, loyalty, treating everyone with dignity is what we should do, because a lot of us knew what it was like not to be treated with dignity by people with wealth.” However sincere his personal narrative may be, Biden’s actual politics tell a different story. Somewhere along the way, Biden chose to embrace globalism and the priorities of global wealth over the interests of the American worker. Comfortable in the highest reaches of government,

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.
