That might actually work, getting Trump to mandate it. He's all about the stick market and businesses.
Naw, who am I kidding, he himself still wouldn't wear one.

It won't happen because Trump and the Republicans want to destroy America.

If you think they're trying to destroy the country now, just wait and watch if he loses.

Lol, yeah, No, it won't be enforced. It's every person for themselves.

Sean Hannity was promoting the benefits of masks last night.

Damn the savings, full steam ahead!

Can't force people to wear one. But just like with seat belts we can fine the living shiat out of them for not wearing one. I'd start the fine at $1000.

Plus only Dimmycrats and RINO's that hate Glorious Trump will wear a mask because they want to make him look bad.

Is that supposed to be English Ivan? Man the Russian troll farms must be hurting for quality people since they've played "What Pandemic?" almost as badly as the US and UK.

I would think the Dems would be cheering the anti-maskers on. SMH

Not everyone wants people to die just because they don't agree with our politics. That seems to be primarily a republican thing. Also, the people not wearing masks may not be the ones dying, they're just the ones spreading.

I think there's a chance that he'll either catch it and die, or quit in a fit of pique.

What a coincidence. That's aboot the same amount we'd save if G-S were up and vanish like a fart in the wind.

We don't need a national mask mandate.  Not for everybody at least.  What we need is a mandate that all non essential people be welded into their homes.  And a mandate that essential people only leave their homes for essential trips.  And mandate masks on all essential trips.  Permanently.

There are 20 million people out of work.

They would love to hand out summonses for $42,000 a year.

Fine. Though we need that to happen at the state level.

Agreed.  Hell, I would say even county level.

Walgreens is selling masks made in china.
Let's start a pandemic and get rich selling masks. Chuck fina and walgreens

People have to have money to buy the masks. They've gone down in price but $25 dollars for five cloth masks was farking price gouging. And since many people didn't have clear instructions in what to do with them, you had muthafarkers who didn't know you were supposed to wash them after wearing them off and on all day.

It was a damn shame none of our politicians noticed or cared when folks from China who lived here were snapping that shiat up, and sending it home like it was a fire sale at Macy's.

All those masks being shipped to the U.S. were snapped up and shipped right back to where they came from. And all of America's finest capitalists didn't say a goddamned word. Money, money, money. It's an American ethos.

The rich already have their PPE y'all. Our doctors and nurses have to struggle, but you can best believe Mitch McConnell's housekeepers have plenty of protective gear. Kim Kardashian has better access to protective gear than our own farking first responders.

It is just so sick, and so sad. Goldman Sachs says we can "save" the economy by wearing masks in public? Fark you Goldman Sachs. Fark all you uptight, rich farks who make money off the misery of others. May your mansions burn down, may your yachts spring leaks, and i hope you catch ecoli from your foie gras.

Fark you.
