When he announced on May 1 that masks would be worn in public places, Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker was emphatic. "We view this as common sense. This is going to be basically a way of life. No ifs, no ands, no buts, no doubts." However, doubts are showing up. First, Baker's order said to wear face coverings when in public places and unable to keep a social distance of six feet. Why'd he pick six feet? There is no research showing that six feet means anything in a public space. (snip) The disease isn't contagious in the open air, but the mask-wearing anxiety sure is

Starting tomorrow, they are mandatory everywhere in the building (about 60,000 s.f.) except in my cubicle. I expect pushback from the production workers. Some in my office are glad. I am not enthused; had never worn one prior to this. In fact it is very demoralizing.

I used to think Menards was the greatest home improvement store but they have bought into the cdc nonsense completely. They are still requiring shoppers to wear a mask but I'm not required to wear one because Home Depot and Lowes are within a mile of Menards. Who needs them? See ya Menards and I have a long memory.

Agree 100%. Even the best mask previously widely available, the N95, is capable of stopping anthrax and tuberculosis bacteria - not viruses. This is according to the manufacturers documentation. These are roughly 1.5 to 3 microns, which I believe is where the much repeated figure of 3 microns comes from. Other points, the N95 has a pretty good contact with the face but is not airtight. It doesn't protect the eyes, which are an entry point for all sorts of particles and biologics. One last point on the cultural front. I don't want to hear from conservative or lefty female commentators how the women of Arab countries are oppressed by having to cover their faces. Look in the mirror, sweetie.

My wife gets made at me for constantly pointing out people wearing masks outside. Your outside in the fresh air and sunshine. It's the one environment viruses can't survive for any real length of time. I actually saw someone (an under twenty snowflake) jogging with a mask on the other day. I nearly lost control of the car with such a blatant display of stupidity.

Hey #4, the Menards here in the rural Ozarks where we have our vacation cabin requires no masks. The employees had them but no customers did yesterday. I found them to be so much more reasonable than Lowe’s. Now this is a very conservative, American flags flyin’ area so I think they have adjusted to the general consensus around here. From what I see in public, everyone is so “over” the masks!

A couple of weeks ago I was out on my local trap range, out in the fresh air with several guys I normally shoot with. One of them showed up wearing a mask. He thought maybe it would protect him from the virus. I explained that the virus is so small it can’t be seen without an electron microscope, and how porous his mask was. I told him it was akin to building a chain link fence around his back yard to keep the mosquitoes out. He said “well, it makes me feel better.” I said “so - you’re doing something you know is useless and futile because it makes you feel good. Have you become a liberal?” He took it off a minute later, and never put it back on.... he can’t stand liberals.

My biggest problem with wearing a mask is that they cause my glasses to steam up. I can't see, and I have to take my glasses off. Its annoying. What I've seen is most people (even liberals) want things to go back to normal. All this talk of a new normal isn't going to fly. I have largely stopped wearing a mask unless specifically asked (I keep one in my back pocket if needed). I consider it my endeavor to get my life back to normal. There are dozens, probably hundreds of viruses out there. Some worse than CV19. There is no guarantee one won't catch something even with a mask. The mask is a security blanket. Ultimately it is up to the individual. If one's health is compromised it is up to them to take extra precautions to protect themselves. The rest of the world cannot stop on their behalf. One goes about their life, and largely turns a blind eye to all the threats out there. One has to. There are many threats. Its a risk we all take everyday. People cannot hole up in their homes 24x7 though some try. None of this is new, btw. It isn't like CV19 is the very first virus. People have had to contend with this all the time. The only difference now is the government, at all levels, has chosen to butt in. Thanks, but no thanks. We don't need or want their help. The other thing I want to see go back to normal is flying. If flying is suppose to be safe, why do so many states have 14 day self-quarantines for travelers? Is travel safe or not? I was suppose to fly back home a month ago, but did not thanks to CV19. I haven't seen the inside of my home in over 8 months. I miss it.

Sorry, forgot to finish my first thought. So, if the N95 can stop roughly 0.3 microns, it is useless to stop a virus 0.06 - 0.12 microns. This is all a government requirement to help market the mask making business. Hi! I'm an internal medicine daacter in Manhattan (sucks to be you). I've researched al sorts of face coverings (uh...sure you have), and I've determined (so?) that these brand of masks are the best there are in the whole, wide world (pffft!). I swear we have gone back to the days of K-Tel, except K-Tel masks probably would have been better.

#14, a favorite waitress at a favorite restaurant has this fogging problem, and my Friday night dinner group has told her to just pull it down and uncover her nose when she is serving us, we don't mind at all. She is appreciative, but the rules say they have to wear them, but not exactly how. They are working - running around and breathing a bit because of it, and that means fogged glasses. She sent my friend on chemo, who ate with us there for a decade or more, a piece of his favorite pie via me on Friday. She's a good person, and gets much better tips these days from me. She had a hard time not working for a couple of months.

The masks make you inhale the CO2 that you must exhale. I was shopping in an out door flower shop. One of the workers passed me and told the cashier taking my care of my purchase, that he had a terrible headache. I told her to tell him to take that mask off. He needs to inhale fresh air. I don't know if she ever told him. also, check your phone. The phones are being upgraded with the COVID19 tracer. Even if you did not ok this. We are being told its for the government to be able to inform you if you passed a person in a store, etc. that tested positive for the Whuhan death. You know this tracing will never go away. Big Brother is watching you!

Wash your glasses with dish soap and water, and that stops the fogging. go to youtube, and you will find Dr. Fauci, in a March 2, 2020 interview on 60 minutes, mocking the wearing of masks. He was correct. there is a psychological dimension to mask wearing, a sense of solidarity or something.

When will the medical community step forward and inform the American public of the utter ineffectiveness of wearing masks. They are symbolic of compliance and more about politics and virtue signaling than health. Take off the stupid masks a take a deep breath. You will be better off for it.

They have a Mask on plus they all have Plexi Glass between us! But they require a mask! Now I've said to heck with them, I hate the darn thing. It messes up my Hair and it makes my nose run! I keep it in my car in case I do have to go into a place that requires them, but I try to avoid those places! This isn't CHINA where everyone wears a mask all of the time!!

Right, poster 19. I think they believe they are the true Americans, and they're showing the rest of US how it's done. Great stories everyone! It's so good to know we share the same experiences and thoughts. :) Here's my latest story: I went grocery shopping at Harris Teeter this morning, and I took my own bags, as usual. As usual, I don't use a cart; I throw everything into my bags and self check out. I decided to go through a register since things were slow. The cashier told me that I have to bag my own groceries, and I agreed (it's what I do when I self check out). Then, she took both bags and took every item out of the the bags to ring them up. She left everything on the whatever it's called for me to bag. I paused before bagging to see if she understood what she did. She unbagged my items, but she couldn't bag them. I can't!

A virus so small that it takes an electron microscope to see held back by a fabric mask with HUGE holes between strands of fabric... Yup, that will work! Plus re-breathing carbon dioxide is really healthy and probably leads to cancer and all kinds of fun stuff! I have season asthma, and I just wore one to an appointment for therapy...I literally could not breathe and my therapist told me to free my nose. They are not healthy and not effective...but all the Karens in the world have a target now!

The notes, which Peter Strzok wrote based on a conversation with Comey, show Obama directing the FBI to investigate General Flynn using “the right people,” while Biden came up with the idea that Flynn should be prosecuted under the Logan Act, an old, unconstitutional law that is inapplicable to a national security advisor.

Nearly two-thirds of the money the Biden Cancer Initiative spent since its founding in 2017 went toward staff compensation and six-figure salaries for top executives.

According to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), Ocasio-Cortez spent about $6.3 million of $10.5 million raised, more than any other Democrat up for reelection in 2020. Her only serious primary challenger for the NY-14 seat, longtime CNBC journalist Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, spent about $1 million of $2 million raised. As of Wednesday afternoon, with 88% of precincts reporting, AOC had garnered 73 percent of the ballots cast compared to Caruso-Cabrera’s 19 percent.
