New York Times Suggests Wearing Two
Masks Instead Of One

Original Article

Posted By: AltaD, 1/13/2021 10:38:03 AM

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says to stem the spread of COVID-19, all Americans should wear a mask. The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes. (Snip) Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”

“Biden, who was photographed wearing a white mask under a Navy blue one, was joined by Hunter’s teen daughter, Finnegan..." He probably wears two pair of socks too, depending on whether Doctor Jill helped him get dressed that morning; doesn't mean we need to follow suit.

What about that "data" that proclaimed how great masks would work to cut the spread of the "virus"? Now the liars who pushed" wear your mask" and stay 6 feet away from everybody, and who produced NO serious studies to prove their belief are at it again. The only lesson here is that if you start out LYING to people, you will have a rougher time when you haul out the old snake oil can and try to fool them again.

They really don't want anyone to be able to breathe. Most people I know that have to wear masks for work have major headaches by the end of the day. Wearing 2 masks would be even more unhealthy. But what the heck MAYBE you won't get covid.

What science? Every study since 1946 evaluating the effectiveness of mask outside the hospital show mask are worthless. Test showed in the 70s that cloth mask are worthless even in a hospital after 10 minutes. Now we have opinion that varies from goobernment employed expert to goobernment employed expert depending on how much control it can create for Democrats. That's not science, that lying and manipulation.

I am not wearing one mask let alone two. I only put one on to enter stores, but even then it is just covering my chin and lower lip, or just hanging on my left ear. This is all a push to sell more masks. Newsome has a $!B deal for masks from China, so this is why this is all coming out.

Well if nothing else, we have proven these idiots at the NYSlimes do not read labels. They choose to listen to the phony 'experts' who claimed first years ago when nobody listened that masks do not work. But now that they have the bully pulpit and the power of the media support, they are claiming the exact opposite. Yesterday MSN home page was even now claiming that eventually covid will be nothing more than an inconvenient childhood ailment for everybody. They sure proved once again, that the truth is an inconvenient commodity for democrats. I guess you could say that it dulls their panic.

Last year I got some of those disposable made-in-China masks that hang on your ears. They interfered too much with my breathing; every time I'd take a deep breath the material would suck in and block my mouth and nostrils. (Good thing I'm not an emphysema case.) But for a time I had to wear something to get into stores, the Post Office, etc. I wasn't about to wear one of those totally-useless neck gaiters. After a long delay (a months-long backorder) I was able to buy some American-made dust/pollen masks. The masks allow me to breathe because they are rigid enough to stay out of my respiratory tract, and the elastic band goes around my head rather than hanging from my ears. And Xi Jinping isn't getting any money off me. BTW, we should never wear a disposable mask for more than a day or so without throwing it away. A mask may not protect you, but it acts as a collector for airborne gunk and so it can make you sick.

Illinois lawmakers on Wednesday used the final hours of the general assembly’s lame duck session to pass a sweeping and controversial criminal justice reform bill that would eliminate cash bail, make it easier to ban officers from working at police departments across the state and allow for anonymous complaints against cops.

The media industry was racked by a record 30,711 job cuts in 2020 — a stunning increase of 201 percent from the year earlier when 10,201 jobs were lost. The figures, which were rolled out Thursday by outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, included jobs data from the news industry, advertising, television and movie production. Last year’s dismal results topped the previous all-time record of 28,802 jobs lost in 2008 at the height of the Great Recession. And cutbacks in newsrooms, whether broadcast, digital or print, accounted for more than half the losses, or some 16,180 cuts.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States.
