Wearing a face MASK is now a political statement that may save your LIFE
"I won't wear a face mask"! - Donald J. Trump

How much more carnage can this "menace" in the Whitehouse do to the nation, the world and this planet before his sheep awaken from their racist dream of an "All White, Alt-Right America" where the Ku Klux Klan is a political power broker, instead of a violent, domestic TERRORIST organization?

256256256

The highest level of Scientists and Medical professionals warn that if states, or, countries open, too soon, that there is a "real threat "of a widespread blowback from the COVID19!

The modeling that Trump dismissed as "flipflopping, not always accurate," is "often wrong," according  to the self-proclaimed "Stable Genius!"

"It's not always reliable. They predicted a lot more deaths, upwards of 150,000! It is nowhere near that. We are doing a great job containing it. Time to Open Our Country. Get people Back to Work!"

Our illegally installed FAKE POTUS, real POS in the Whitehouse, sits there because his team worked closely with a foreign government, Russia, its Intelligence Agencies, and Vladimir Putin, a brutal, former KBG dictator, who often resorts to murder to enforce his rule.

The COVID19 Task Force, the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and, the best minds in the Scientific and Medical Science communities throughout the world "warn that opening businesses, too, early may lead to a "deadly upsurge in infections and DEATHS."



Who are you going to believe? The Pathological Liar-In-Chief, or,256 the World Health Organization, International Epidemiologists, and, our own COVID19 TaskForce?

Ever actually watch people that wear "Masks" ?

I'm a people watcher. jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

They walk around wearing this superduperuber mask, then reach under that mask to scratch an itch. Re-Adjust that mask, and then go about the business of touching everything in sight like they were doing before.

WONDERFUL ! jrSmiley_15_smiley_image.gif

BEST MASK....LIKE ……… EVER !!!!!!

The Funniest ones are the ones that drive their cars all alone. Windows up and A/C on, wearing that mask.

Apparently, they don't trust themselves. LOL !

What I find Hillaryous is how many will leave the nose uncovered, with the mask only over their mouth.

I only wear a mask inside buildings like my apartment house and the grocery store. I will wear one to get my hair cut in the next day or two. And I will wear one at 24 Hour Fitness when they reopen soon.

Otherwise, I don't wear one outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Their effectiveness is way overrated and give a false sense of security to the wearers of them.

I, too, have noticed that. In America, we are not used to wearing masks to protect us from pollution, pandemics, etc., and residents from many other countries have done so for a long time.

It is a bit uncomfortable to wear a face mask, and depending on the type, it varies ineffectiveness.

However, as that old adage propound, "Better Safe Than Sorry," applies during these times of a Worldwide Pandemic, in which little is know about this Novel COVID19 virus.

Primarily because the air is so polluted and stinks like, well shit, it is a normal part of life.

I guess you've never ventured to lovely locales like Bangladesh, or Mumbai, or hell even that get away Asian hotspot Bangkok Thailand.

Fortunately, we in this country, with a few BIG CITY exceptions, don't have pollution or stench problems like that.

Even the N95 mask is only partially effective to prevent a wearer from ingesting the virus droplets, but they are much more effective in preventing the wearer from spreading the droplets.  Where I am living the people put the collective health and life, i.e. the safety of others, ahead of personal discomfort of wearing a mask or individual freedom to be an asshole and EVERYONE WORE THEM, and everyone followed the lockdown and social distancing and the result in a city-state of 32 million was 579 cases, all of whom now recovered save for 6 deaths, and no new cases now for more than 2 months - most everything has reopened, and as of yesterday, even the schools.

The last time I went to the store a lady, I don't know if she knew it or not, but her chin was showing, it was quite distracting.

Seriously, so what will China do now, it seems corvid19 isn't going away in the rest of the world, so are they going to isolate themselves permanently, allow tourism only after a tourist quarantining themselves for two weeks (that will be great for tourism), shutting down all business trip in and out of the country (for those heading out also need to return)?  It seems China is setting itself up for economic failure, while the rest of the world is heading towards herd immunity and business as usual.

If a vaccine is developed, it wouldn't be 100% effective and some will die from the vaccine itself, China will have to bite the bullet and let the virus back into the country.  China maybe patting themselves on the back for their success in mitigation, but they maybe in the mitigation phase for years after the rest of the world is done with it.

Under the grossly incompetent leadership of the CON MAN-In-Chief, an International Thief and failed businessman, it may come to that.

When things get so desperate, folks often turn to criminality to feed themselves, their family, or, just because they have a STOCKPILE of WEAPONS, and, until now have not had any cause to use them.

It is universally thought that Trump will not change at his age of 74+ years. His Intel briefings must be given to him orally, and briefly, so he can comprehend what the various Intelligence Agencies tasked with the responsibility to keep our country safe are saying.

Trump's recent suggestion on national TV during his last COVID19 Taskforce Briefing blew up in his face when he seriously suggested to the Task Force doctors that they should investigate the use of bleach, disinfectants, UV light to be inserted into the body to kill the COVID19.

Trump's intellectual capacity was on display, and, ended his appearances with the COVID19 Taskforce.

Trump has been trying to fire the CDC, Dr. Fauci, and the COVID19 Taskforce since they all disagree with him on "opening businesses" without adequate testing to determine if the virus is spreading in a particular area or declining.

Trump has no qualms about KILLING hundreds of 256 thousands of Americans, or, infecting millions more, as long as he can get re-elected and stay out of the "SLAMMER" hiding behind the Oval Office desk in the Whitehouse.

Are you speaking of when those uneducated Trump supporter deplorables stop driving trunks into the death city hot spots so as to not bring the COMMUNIST CHINESE VIRUS home to their loved ones, those concrete jungle city dwellers will start on a rampage for food?

Have no fear, those of us in "rural" America are sufficiently armed to protect our food supplies from city dweller marauders and send them back to where they came from empty handed except for the morsels we wish to contribute to their survival.   I wish them a hearty appetite as they chow down on that asphalt and concrete.  

PS:  Maybe you should look to the Blue state and city authorities and see where the majority of deaths have occurred.  Where the MOST VULNERABLE elderly live.  THANKS DEMOCRATS for your caring //S//

Trump's disregard of Warnings about the Pandemic in early December, and, his blundering denials that "America only has one death," are the reasons why this country has so many deaths, and leading the world in infected citizens.

Along with "the Donald's" constant refrain that "we have it under control," or, the one I enjoyed the most, "it's fake. . . just a Democrat attempt to attack all of my successes," dull the urgency of quick action.

Trump ONLY does what is in his own interest, not the interest of his country, fellow citizens, or, the good of the planet.

With Trump, it is all about the MONEY, Honey, and, how he can get his grubby, small hand on it first.256

Trump in his desperate attempt to get re-elected to keep his fat arse out of prison, has politicized "Wearing of Face Mask," as a sign of lack of trust in his ability to contained COVID19.

It is seen as a sign of weakness, rather, than a recommended safety measure from our own COVID19 Taskforce, who Trump wants to ban because the TRUTH hurts his chances of winning.

Trump does not give a damn how large the DEATH count becomes. In the WAR, there are always expendable losses.

I trust, as a thoughtful citizen, with obvious deep concerns about the COVID19, and, our near depression economy, that you watched the Senate hearing questioning Dr. Rick Bright, an American Immunologist, and former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.

Dr. Bright's role, as one of the world's most respected experts on epidemics, and, as director of the United States' BARDA, was tasked with the unenviable role to alert the Trump administration to America's woeful unpreparedness for a PANDEMIC.

Trump, as you know, considers himself a "Stable Genius" who knows more about anything, than anyone, naturally ignored it which has led to deadly consequences and to the near Depression-like economy that all in this nation are painfully experiencing.

Did you have the opportunity to watch the hearing? It revealed an administration that deliberately suppressed, punished, and attacked the scientists involved with alerting this nation's intractable leadership to the unfolding World Wide Health Emergency.

Please, re-read your reply above, concerning my, and, others alleged "vitriolic" remarks about one of the stupidest, most corrupt POTUS to serve in the Whitehouse.256

Trump is an "Impeached President," with a number of his top-level advisers currently convicted of serious crimes and, serving time in prison.

Trump in less than 3.5 years has fired the Director of the FBI, the NSA, replaced the Attorney General (3 times), fired 11 Inspector Generals, cut the funding for the CDC, gutted America's Pandemic Response Budget and personnel, transferred 17.8 tons of Medical Supplies to Communist China, s uggested that Bleach and a Disinfectant may be an effective treatment for COVID19, stated repeatedly that the Pandemic was "under control," that it was a "fake plague created by Democrats" to tarnish his chances of getting re-elected.

The volume of vitriolic, misinformed, deliberately inaccurate nonsense that constantly flows, non-stop, from Donald J. Trump's mouth, every time he opens it, is not only appalling it is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, childish and indicative of a rapidly collapsing mind.

I understand loyalty, and, to some degree respect it. But, blind loyalty to an unhinged, deranged, incompetent leader is not LOYALTY!

It indicates a severe case of "Cognizance Dissonance," a condition that prevents some folks from processing information if it is counter to their personal BELIEFS, not their conscious mind.

There is nothing, except the loss of a loved one, perhaps, for some, that is more cutting than the realization that we may have backed the "wrong horse," and,/or was unwittingly 256 conned by someone, we once respected.

However, as responsible adults, there comes a time in our life when we must "put our childish" (things, beliefs) away, and recognize that there are NO SUPERHEROES!

I derive little joy from writing about Trump's near-psychotic behavior. Like Dr. Bright, I am attempting to illuminate it! 256

If your analysis is that, "MASKS are not effective" as a prophylactic against COVID19, in contrast to the Center For Disease Control , Medical Professionals, Epidemiologists, the World Health Organization, then, you may want to do more research from respected Medical Journals, before recklessly promoting this opinion, thereby, possibly putting yourself, YOUR family and others in HARMS WAY.

Even the Whitehouse recommends in their "Watertown" CDC recommendations to wear one when venturing outside.

However, Trump in his Great Stable Wisdom does not wear one and, thereby, has turned this potentially life-saving device into a "Loyalty Test!"

Donald J. Trump is a cravened man who has absolutely no loyalty to anyone, yet, demands it from everyone.

Following him may get you and millions of America's killed.256

I mean, it can hang in the air locally (like in a room) for a few hours (apparently) if it’s in an aerosol. But that’s not that easy to make happen, and it’s probably not going to be on the sidewalk in some suburb or the beach. You’re certainly not going to have someone else’s germs floating around in your car.

On the other hand, maybe we should be glad people are wearing masks even when they don’t have to?

If suspended in a water droplet like you find in a typical sneeze or cough, that's true. Gravity pulls it down and it's too heavy for air to hold it up. If in aerosol form (like a fine mist, smaller than a water droplet), though, it can hang in the air for a while. Still, that's not a reason to wear a mask in your own car or on an empty sidewalk.

One other aspect we don't hear anything about is the dosage of the virus that leads to infection. Typically a single virus isn't going to infect someone. My understanding is that you generally need several hundred or thousands or millions - whatever it is for the specific bug. So I would guess that a few random examples of the virus that manage to stay off the ground for a while, probably aren't going to make anyone sick.

Actually we did that just the other day, Monday to be exact.  Brought the wife into an ER for some gut issues and they kept her overnight for some IV medications.   They staff were all great and when we spoke about the COVID19 bullshit, they also felt it was being grossly overblown in most areas.  NYC and some areas like that were definitely in trouble, but that for the most part was of their own making.  Remember Big Bird de Blasio telling everyone to ride the buses and subways even while he cut the numbers of them, forcing more people into less space?   Or Andy boy sending COVID positive people back to nursing homes?  Yeah, he's since rescinded THAT order.

After her overnight stay, I brought her home yesterday.

The "professionals" I spoke with, the doctors and nurses all agree that precautions need to be taken, but this shut down stuff is ludicrous.

In rural areas, sparsely populated, the number of cases is minuscule in comparison to large cosmopolitan areas like NYC, Chicago, Boston, and California.

However, since the Blowveator-In-Chief instructed his underlings to "Liberate" their state, many of his "easily led" supporters took to the streets without Masks, assuming that this Pandemic was just a fake Democrat scheme to besmirch their GOD APPOINTED Fake President, Real POS.

Consequently, the Charts tracking the spread of the virus and death are shooting up in largely RED STATE, where those silly red caps offer no protection against a PANDEMIC.

Trumps's "Rush To the Grave Yard" is starting to take hold in the states that voted for him in 2016.

It is his way of "Thanking them," rather than shooting them, which he plans to do, according to our "sauces," as soon as they declare him Dictator for Life.

Trump still wants to "thin the HERD out!" Are you getting thinner?"

On Monday, when I had the wife in the ER, they had the plexi screen between staff and client.  Those staff didn't have masks on.  When they brought the wife to the exam room, we both took our masks off and when the Dr's and nurses came in they did the same.  When they took her for a CT scan, she put it on while I waited, mask-less, in her exam room.

Later, they moved her to an overnight observation room for IV meds drip and she was again mask-less as was I.  And when any staff entered the room, the masks came off.

The only time we had them on was when we first went in and when we left to avoid the 'stare of shame' from those that are paranoid while in the waiting area.

Somehow, after a few drinks, it always managed to vomit its way up in the most off-setting way. I understood it to be a jab at "northerners."

All numbers assuming that China, North Korea, Russia, and other country with a government run media aren't lying their asses off. Of course leftwing loons believe everything their communist leaders spout.

The left still can't bring themselves to admit China lied about how severe and infectious Covid-19 was; and didn't take nearly adequate steps to prevent the spread of the disease beyond their borders. Already forgiven and forgotten.

Why should they hold anyone accountable beyond Trump? It is not like they slammed Trump for being racist for his partial travel ban to and from China. Could you imagine if he had done a full ban/boycott? The left would have lost their friggin minds. Trump also send medical supplies to China to help them fight it; of course that was while they were still lying and everyone thought they could contain it. Now they bash his for that as well. Of course if he hadn't the same people would be calling him a racist. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. If you are Trump or anyone associated with him the left will damn you no matter what.

So what is the Democrats big fucking plan for combating Covid-19; and getting the economy moving again? Right now it is blame everything on Trump; but use his plans- they will just run it better because they have that almighty D behind their name. And the refrain, "But Trruuuummmmpppppp!!!!!!" That will fix everything. Penalize China for their lying and massive fuckup. Hell no- they will need China for cheap priced garbage to sell in the US and run on US automaker assembly lines- have to keep the Unions happy!   Bring production back from overseas of critical goods such as drugs and medical equipment. Hell no, they need to tax those evils corporations into the fucking ground to pay for the social justice programs. They would have to actually offer incentives to get production to return. They might consider nationalizing key industries; but with the fucked up way our government runs things- they already know the loss in tax revenue simply isn't worth it.

Get ready for the next fucking pandemic so the mighty mental midgets can scream "We are not prepared". Maybe it will kill enough of us to hold the real problem makers responsible for a change.

Below is the conclusion from a rigorous review of the scientific literature regarding the use of Masks.

Conclusion
By making mask-wearing recommendations and policies for the general public, or by expressly condoning the practice, governments have both ignored the scientific evidence and done the opposite of following the precautionary principle. In an absence of knowledge, governments should not make policies that have a hypothetical potential to cause harm. The government has an onus barrier before it instigates a broad social engineering intervention, or allows corporations to exploit fear-based sentiments.

Furthermore, individuals should know that there is no known benefit arising from wearing a mask in a viral respiratory illness epidemic, and that scientific studies have shown that any benefit must be residually small, compared to other and determinative factors.  Otherwise, what is the point of publicly funded science?

The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical
and political history. 

Questions Regarding Unknown Aspects of Mask Wearing
Many potential harms may arise from broad public policies to wear masks, and the following unanswered questions arise:

• Do used and loaded masks become sources of enhanced transmission, for the wearer
and others? 

• Do masks become collectors and retainers of pathogens that the mask wearer would
otherwise avoid when breathing without a mask?

• Are large droplets captured by a mask atomized or aerolized into breathable components? Can virions escape an evaporating droplet stuck to a mask fiber?

• What are the dangers of bacterial growth on a used and loaded mask?

• How do pathogen-laden droplets interact with environmental dust and aerosols captured on the mask?

• What are long-term health effects on HCW, such as headaches, arising from impeded breathing?

• Are there negative social consequences to a masked society?

• Are there negative psychological consequences to wearing a mask, as a fear-based behavioural modification?

• What are the environmental consequences of mask manufacturing and disposal?

• Do the masks shed fibres or substances that are harmful when inhaled?

People who wear masks are doing their bit to protect others from them, as much as trying to protect themselves from those that might be affected by a DEADLY VIRUS.

Now is not the time to ridicule, malign, or, denigrate those that are trying to protect themselves in the manner that the World Health Organization, the CDC, and the WH's COVID19 Task Force recommends.

Humans are infallible. Those that think that they are not are wallowing in a Sea of FALSE SECURITY that gives them a feeling of superiority.

It is time for everyone to PITCH in and help out with this world-wide plague, not sit back on their hindquarters and criticize those that are trying to help out.

Unfortunately, in life, there are those that build people up and those that tear them down. We all have to ask ourselves, at times like this, what kind of person do we want to be?

Right now some celebrity (I forget who) is getting a lot of flack for wearing a crocheted mask.  She uses a hepa filter insert so it is just as effective as other masks out there, if not more.

Allisa Milano

Diva alert ...... i mean really.   A crocheted mask over a N95 mask?

She is intentionally looking for trouble.   No doubt about it.

Hepa filters come in many forms.  The one she is most likely using is a flat panel that is inserted into a pocket within a mask.  I found a picture of the one I think Ms Milano is using but I don't know how to post pictures.

Can't tell for sure from the picture but it looks to me like her husband is wearing a N95 mask. What some would call a HEPA mask.   I just assumed she had the same one under her crocheted job.   Here it is:

I think hers is quite stylish considering how unattractive some are and with the hepa filter, it sure is more protection than say, bandannas which a lot favor.  Thank you for the picture.  One day I might even learn how to post pictures as there is one I really want to if I can find the right seed to do it on.

It's a bit of pain if you don't pay for picture hosting but not bad once you get the hang of it.

I would love to know how she worked a HEPA filter into her mask.   I highly doubt that's what she did.   More likely if she really does have something else on under the crochet, which we don't know for sure from that picture, it is likely a N95 mask like her husbands.

Looks like a diva actress going for attention to me.   But hey, that's just my opinion, i could be wrong.

I used to crochet and creating an inner pocket is not all that difficult.  You simply do the insert separately and then secure it to the inside.

I'll take your word for it.   However, I'd love to see the inside of her mask.

I am hoping she does a tutorial for YT on how one is created.

Me to.

Unless it completely covers her nose and mouth it’s pretty worthless.

Not wearing a MASK gives one a "False Sense of Superiority," flouting their limited understanding of the epidemiology of this virus, and the seriousness of a World Wide Pandemic that has afflicted the entire globe.

Is there no limit to Trump followers smugness.

In a National crisis people pull together, not apart.

Nope, your words not mine.

If you want real protection you should go the bubble boy rout or even a full body condom complete with OBA

Then you’d really be cooking with gas.

very few people are still wearing masks in my city.   (  almost none. )

but I also understand why people in places like ny still do.

Driving through town this weekend I saw a lot of masks.    Most them were on top of heads, around necks or stylishly placed on a bicep like a bandana.    Few were where they should be.
