snowshovel: NeoCortex42: We already require shirt, shoes, and pants for service. Why the fark is this any different?

Interesting fact, the no shoes no shirt sign blossomed to all parts of the country (away from beach communities) as a workaround to deprive hippies of their civil rights, in much the same way no mask no service signs seek to deprive God loving white people of their rights.


No mask no service signs seek to limit the ability of libertarian asstards to kill off their other customers.

You have the right to order your food on instacart and let the rest of us transact safely. We're the ones doing it right, observing social distancing, avoiding unnecessary contact, and wearing masks so if we ARE sick and don't know it (and you can't know it because the federal response to the pandemic has been fark all), we are less likely to infect our fellow man.

You have the right to complain about the rest of us not farking it up from the comfort of your own home. Go ahead. The rest of us will be taking necessary precautions to keep as much of society functioning that can be done safely.

There's a calm way to get such a paid agitator to wear a mask.   The common story in every locale is the guy creating a scene at a Dollar store -- too similar not to be a targeted event.

Tell him his breath smells like shiat.  And you will sue him for assault if he doesn't put on a mask.    You have a law firm on speed dial who is waiting for the call.   Tell him his license plate to let him know he's already been recorded and targeted.

docilej: why did the Liberals stop at forcing to make people wear just masks? If you have to wear masks in public then shouldn't the government enforce a glove wearing mandate too? Why one and not the other?


Because only a covidiot would compare something that benefits everyone (abatement of droplet transmission by asymptomatic carriers) with something that does nothing at best and is more likely counterproductive (you can wash your hands, but what are you going to do with those filthy gloves besides trash them and then wash your hands?).

What will be really interesting is the constitutional challenges that come up the next time someone is charged with the anti-mask laws most states have. If the government is mandating masks wouldn't that be entrapment?  If some masks are mandated but others are illegal then the government is applying the law in an unequal manner isn't that a violation of the 14th?

agent00pi: Bowen: Do other countries have this level of widespread derp? If not, what the hell is wrong with us?

It's an AMP link, but here's an interesting take on that.


Author provides some interesting insights, but the article has a weird BSAB thing going.

FTFA: American liberals sometimes treat their belief in science as a kind of religion, Blanchfield argued, fetishizing technocrats and rejoicing when conservatives who do not "believe in science" are punished.
Some liberals have posted comments regretting that they could not wish that participants in "reopen" protests would get coronavirus, because they might infect other, innocent people, Adam Kotsko, a political theorist, said. After Georgia decided to reopen businesses early, despite continued warnings from public health officials, one liberal activist with a large following tweeted "*sips coffee*" as her only comment on an article reporting that Georgia had seen 1,000 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours.
Even as some leftists on Twitter were calling the GOP a "death cult", other leftists were suggesting that the punishment for unbelievers should be death.

So on the one hand: armed crazy people refusing to wear masks, or take shelter during a pandemic, or address the entrenched systematic inequalities that lead to worse health outcomes for poor people or minorities.
On the other hand: utterly exhausted sane people who just want the crazy people to farking stop already.
But yeah...both sides, man.

Its farking tiring listening to the bloody extremes about everything lately.

Like yeah ok, you should wear a mask, its going to help others, but dont be an arsewad when your asked to put one on to enter a store

On the flip side, people calling others idiots for not wearing something is just as rediculous.

When are we going to realize that all media does (and im not singling out msm, or anything else) is look for the loudest most obnoxious people and say "that person there, thats the representation of everyone they associate with!!"

Just everyone chill out for a second.

The Constitution isn't like the repair manual for a 1998 Subaru Outback, where ten mechanics can look at it and come away with the same idea on how to change the starter.

The Supreme Court routinely splits 5-4 on what they think the Constitution means. Obviously if it's something that the top judges in the country find ambiguous, why should we trust the opinion of a single constitutional lawyer?

At what distance from your coworkers?  Do you wear masks?  Gloves?  Employer-provided or personal choice?

As for me, I get out nearly every day for shopping and/or exercise and wear a mask where social distancing might be problematic, mainly stores and crowded sidewalks.

Because asymptomatic people can spread the virus by just breathing, a mask helps prevents the spread and to some degree prevents a non-covid person from catching it.

Wearing gloves does not stop the spread of Covid19 it only offers limited protection to the user because you still need to practice good hand hygiene while wearing them.

I asked my mask if I'm being detained.

She said "B*tch, STFU or I'm going to let these germs go right up your nose. Speaking of your nose, holy sh*t! How did it get so big? Did your mom pick you up by it as a baby? Tape a rose to the end of it and boom, instant plague doctor"

I should get a better mask.

I get so bothered with the comparisons to Nazi Germany too.

They had to stay in an attic with months on end without making any sound, let alone leaving the attic.

That's actually the joke.

There was a Karen story a few days ago about a woman who flipped out when she was told to wear a mask at a store. She claimed in her tweets that she had a "medical condition" that prevented her from wearing a mask, and that "HIPPA" meant she didn't have to tell anyone what that condition was.

Take a second and really ponder the depth of idiocy it takes to be this offended about wearing a mask during a global pandemic. These people are not well. And there are tens of millions of them. Stick a fork in America, we're done.

Because no one knew enough about the virus to come to any conclusions. Now, we know more and can update the knowledge, such as the CDC saying today that it's less likely than previously believed that one can get the virus through surfaces. That's how science works: you update your information based on solid evidence.
