As we all know, having an( R) in front of your name doesn't make you smart or even a good person.

We also know that Trump had a very small group of people from which to pick his advisors who aren't part of the problem. We know that Fauci and Birx were not one of those people who should have been trusted.
I suspect, in his quietest of times, his trusting them in the beginning of all this will be his deepest regret.

As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, " None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection."1 Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission.

No we can't. The Governor of Mississippi shut down our state & has subsequently shut down local counties with mask mandates. He is Republican. Trump initially shut own the whole country & he is maybe Republican.

I will agree this has been way overblown, but you live in a fantasy world if you think this is all on the left.
(PSSSSSST, @******* ....Most Republicans ARE leftists. And what the governor of Mississippi has done is socialistic in principle and proves my point..)

Wow, this thread may have set a record at PF for the fastest growing thread.

T-Man wears a mask at stores, when required, more as a courtesy to the clerks and employees who are just trying to get a check to support their families. Even if they don't agree, most of them are not in a position to lose their job over refusing to support company policy.

Now that being said, company policy makers need to get their head out of their tail end. All the crap that I have breathed in over my 47 years on this planet, industrial chemicals, fumes from welding galvanized steel when I was dumb, solvents, exhaust, machine coolant, oil smoke, chicken dust, who knows what else. This mask crap is propaganda.

Bring on the national Kommrade Biden mask mandate. It will be like prohibition all over again. Speak-easy's for non mask wearers.

I will give that a double amen, an (R) in front of their names, might as well stand for reprobate. Fauci and Birx (Bozo & Clara Bell) fell in love with the camera. And any good sense that they had, was killed off by the bright lights.

And, when have we ever stayed on topic? As a matter of fact, by our standards, we haven't strayed too far!
Wait....what the hell were we talking about again? Muslims? Or naked girls under the Christmas tree?:tango_face_grin:

You have reminded me of when I was young, I worked in a Screw machine shop as a toolmaker.

On one floor (cellar) there were 50 Acme Gridley OO screw machines, all were running making 81 MM mortar fuse bodies.

As you stood there your head was in a cloud of oil mist,

the oil was composed of lard oil with Sulphur, I was only there for 15 or 20 minuets each time.

The crap would run out of my nose when I left and went back to the tool room, it was the best cutting oil I ever saw and used.

After I went back upstairs, I washed my hands it Triclean-D (Trichlorethylene dichloride), no longer available on the market.

Still use the oil today for thread cutting and tapping.

Then there is all the jig grinding without coolant and all the time on a surface grinder, should have silicosis from it all.

Now I also use 2% thoriated TIG rods and grind them, another healthy operation.

Talk about chicken dust, I had to do a 5,000 chicken "coop", when I stayed on the farm.

Yeah I am right there with you, but I have 42 years on you.

Yes, because wearing a mask has always been considered a tool preppers would use during a pandemic. Here is a discussion from 3 years ago. https://www.prepperforums.net/forum...spread-disease-during-pandemic-post-shtf.html

Consider how many preppers have masks in their stores & had them prior to this version. But because the wearing of a mask has been politicized, as in this discussion, people like me who are at risk, are shamed. I wish people would just shut up. Wear a mask if you think it helps. Don't wear one, if not in a location where government or a business requires one, if that makes you feel superior. No need to shame people for their views. I remember a time when conservatives touted INDIVIDUAL freedoms. Why should I be put down for doing what I think is right for ME?

BTW, Zorro wore a mask & I used to dress up as him as a child. Batman & Robin also.
Just for the record *******, not wearing a mask does not make me feel superior, just free, nothing more.

Mask nazi’s.. yes.. that’s what they are.

Tonight we went to our favorite restaurant to eat. We’ve been there 2x a week for 4 years. We know almost all the staff. We like the food and the Rita’s and quite frankly spend and tip very well.

No more.

My wife forgot her mask. So she covered her face (nose and mouth) with her jacket. The edict in Texas is that you wear a mask until you get to your table then you can take it off. That’s a distance of about 10’ usually. They wouldn’t let her in. She had to have a “mask” although her hand and jacket would be better than a mask. Of course just 10’ from us is a large family eating with no masks.

I ask to speak with the manager. He wouldn’t come over to us. So I went to him and told him he’s lost my business and I’ll broadcast that around our area.

He shrugged.

Screw him.

Mask Nazi’s.

I”M OVER THE $%^&* MASKS>>>>>>>> NO MORE

If you had family members that had compromised immune systems, would you do everything possible to keep all pathogens away? Not just in their immediate presence but would you do everything possible to ensure you didn't pass on the germ to them? Call it whatever name you want, but this Covid is exceptionally deadly to some groups of people.
You say all "all pathogens". For their sake, were you wearing a mask before Covid?

You sound like an older version of myself. I worked at a shop that had Acme's, 6 of them were 8 spindle 4-1/2" capacity. Alot of smoke.
Forgot about thoriated welding rods.
Worked at a Devlieg shop with mostly mist coolant, where the deburr guys pressure washed our parts in solvent, right in the aisle.
Header shops, probably explains my hearing loss.

Would love to sit down and chew the fat sometime, preferably with cold tools!
