St. Louis County in Missouri is mandating face masks for everyone over the age of 5 when indoors regardless of vaccination status amid the spread of the delta variant, officials announced Friday. Masks are also "strongly encouraged" for groups when outdoors. We’ve lost more than 500 St. Louisans to COVID-19, and if our region doesn’t work together to protect one another, we could see spikes that overwhelm our hospital and public health systems," Dr. Fredrick Echols, acting director of health for the City of St. Louis, said Friday. St. Louis County reported 241 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, bumping the 7-day average

Near as I can tell, a mandate is not a law. So what's the point? We already know, for a fact, that breathing through a piece of fabric for hours at a time is dangerous. Oh wait, maybe that is the point.

I agree with all the above. But, while true that a mandate is not a law, we are stuck with having to work around the effects. Prime example: grocery stores. I live in an area where there are several (large and small) from which to choose, but when they all require customers to be masked before entry, where can we go maskless to buy our food? Yes, there's delivery to the door, but who wants to do that now unless necessary for other reasons (or simply convenience)? Mandates can have the same results as laws, much as Federal agency guidelines/rules/requirements have the same result as a law passed by Congress.

When are they going to close the border and stop sending the illegals all over USA? Probably why the cases are rising. I still don't agree with masks though. When the gov't takes it seriously, then I might. What would have become of covid if it hadn't been an election year? How many lives wouldn't have been lost due to suicides ,loss of livilihood etc. One has a 99.7% chance of surviving covid.

If this doesn't say the "vaccination" is a punk on the citizens, nothing does. While they're trying to segregate and put at odds the vaccinated and unvaccinated, everybody has to mask up. Come on, fam. Let's wake up. Just freakin' say NO!

‘Local officials’ now seem to think that their personal opinions override the CDC. I’m sure they feel very powerful insisting that all the peons scurry around wearing totally useless masks that do more harm than good. Those who get a thrill up their leg by following orders set down by these morons can have at it. I won’t be wearing a mask, including to the grocery store. Come and arrest me. I’m done.

When these "mandates" first came in, I just ignored it. I went into the grocery and hardware and Walmart and did not wear a mask. Once, entering Walmart, where they had re-routed traffic inconveniently to a long line out front.....INCREASING the number of people close together....they had a woman sitting on a stool at the entrance to their tape-defined line. She said, as I walked by, not stopping, "Sir, do you have a mask?" I tossed "No" over my shoulder as I walked on. Not one word was said by anyone inside, and I did my own checkout. They won't do anything to actually try to enforce this in most places, you will find. Just say "No" and go on. After a few weeks of this, I finally buckled under. Not again. Will not wear a mask.

If you need to wear a mask whether vaccinated or not, why get vaccinated? Look for vaccination rates to drop even further.

If a young healthy person's employer isn't mandating the vaccine, the only selling point for the vaccination is that once you've had the shot(s) you won't need to wear a mask. So why are leftists politicians killing this vaccine incentive?

Why don't the vaccinated and masked stay home, and everyone else go about their lives. Or maybe they could have odd vaccinated days, and even unvaccinated days. Going further, we could have Democrat, and Republican really holidays. I would like the towns divided with the Democrats and their immigrants, felons, and homeless people on their side.

A few days ago, Rep. Cori Bush of ultra-woke fame, to the point where she makes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez look sane, posted a series of racist messages on Twitter.

To the extent that all Congressional members are public figures (and Bush more so than some others) and routinely get nasty grams, there was nothing especially remarkable about what she posted.

The U.S. Department of Justice has opted against investigating any of the Democrat governors who last year ordered nursing homes to accept residents who tested positive for COVID-19 against the recommendations of health groups. Federal officials reviewed information they received from New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Jersey last year regarding the orders. Based on the review, they’re not opening Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA) investigations in the first three states, Joe Gaeta, deputy assistant attorney general, told Rep.

Samsel reportedly injured a female police officer. Since his arrest, Ryan Samsel has been held in Washington DC. On March 21, he was awakened by correctional officers, his hands zip-tied, then walked to an unoccupied cell and brutally beaten by the officers. Then Ryan Samsel lost an eye in the beating. Ryan was not alone. On Thursday night Attorney Joseph McBride joined Greg Kelly on Newsmax to discuss the abuse of the Jan. 6 political prisoners in Washington DC.

Two children aged six and seven were struck by ricocheting bullets just south of Stockholm near what police believe was a gang-related shooting. The shooting took place on Saturday in the southern Stockholm suburb of Flemingsberg at around 8 pm, and the two young children were injured as they were walking on the footbridge. Both children suffered wounds to their legs and were taken to hospital, but were found to have non-life-threatening injuries, Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports. Police say that the two children were out playing when the incident took place and were not the targets of the gunfire.

Protests in Cuba against the communist regime and the decades of oppression it has produced have provided a test of will in Florida.

In a remarkable display of how committed the Democrat party is to utilizing the narrative of domestic extremism for their own benefit, Nancy Pelosi is placing satellite field offices for the DC Capitol Police in key regions around the country. When we consider the FBI has field offices all over the country, you might ask: why does the Capitol Hill police need to expand beyond Washington DC? Essentially, what Nancy Pelosi is doing is expanding the federal law enforcement mechanism of the legislative branch into specific areas where they can investigate political opposition armed with legal authority.

Nancy Pelosi used to point her angry finger at Donald Trump, but she leaves him for dust when it comes to busting norms, dividing Congress and causing mayhem. If anyone is to blame for the hyper-partisanship in Washington these days, it’s the spiteful House speaker. She behaves more like a Mafia don waging a gang war than a dignified, fair and honest presiding officer, which is what the speaker’s role requires. Pelosi abuses her power in ways that once were unthinkable. Her speakership has been the antithesis of Lincoln’s entreaty to “the better angels of our nature.”
