Republican Kansas isn't mandating masks, our Democratic governor is.  The Republicans will get pissy about this and try to take more power away from her.  It's what they do.

"This is made from bamboo, so it's very tangled. It also is then infused with silvederma, which is silver ions that are supposed to repel microns, microbes," she said.

No, no, no, no, no. Don't do this.

Sulfadiazine silver (a derivative of Sulfadiazine) is reported as an ingredient of Silvederma in the following countries: Hong Kong, Malta, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, Venezuela (source)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_​s​ulfadiazine
Summary: it's burn cream with silver in it. You do not want this stuff on your mouth, nose and eyes.

Harstine added, "No guarantees. There's so much research and so many people talking on both sides as to how much good a cloth mask does."

Translation: She's been told this is a bad, bad idea but she doesn't want to hear it.

Boondock3806: What other kinds of mandates are there?


The Red Hats in the Statehouse took the actual authority to make the order stick away from Gov. Kelly. So, really, it's more of a suggestion.

/ it's up to the individual counties

Masks are projected to save 300-500 lives, PER DAY! People who refuse to wear them due to reasons are mass murderers. It's literally the least you can do to protect your fellow countryman right now, so if you must go out in public, put your damn mask on.

Jesus, could these assholes have possibly picked a more biased picture? 'Oh, masks make you miserable, just look at this poor lady. At the very least, she has a migraine, it's probably the mask.'.

And there's no way I believe that's a coincidence or unintended. I didn't even RTFA, but I can guarantee you that the person thinks that  masks are an infringement on your 1st Amendment rights.

AirForceVet: About farking time Kansas.


When Brownback royally farked over Kansas, a few actually had an epiphany that Maybe, Possibly, the Republicans didn't exactly have the common people's best interest in minds.  I know, it's shocking, but I've talked to a few.  They even went as far as getting a shiny new Dem governor who occasionally does Dem things.  Crazy.

Notabunny: So the barn has gone from burning to ashes and the horse is three counties over? Good timing.


The way I described one of these stories yesterday was instead of locking the barn door after horse escaped, they've installed a door. Maybe a lock will come later, maybe it won't, but horses don't have opposable thumbs, so it's all good anyway...

And they say mask mandate... but how many state fine people like 1000$ for not wearing a mask in public? I bet 0.

NE Kansas here. Already been wearing masks when the family and I go out. Gotta love some of the other people around here though. Have a coworker I saw at the store who shares far right stuff on Facebook walk the wrong way down the aisle on purpose and no mask on him or his son. And some of the people in my immediate vicinity are grumbling about the mask thing. Hell, last night at Boy Scouts the scout master said he just wanted everyone to just get it and get the thing over with, which has got to be one of the dumbest takes.

Yup. You should have seen the outcry yesterday.  These assholes are busting out the "my body, my choice" bullshiat and still telling women to not get abortions.

I hate these hypocritical assholes.

In the little town where I live, I am one of just a few people who has been wearing a mask all this time out in public.

Judging by my Facebook feed last night, this will not go over well in Kansas.  Expect to see a new batch of "Karens" hatched here soon.
