The Excuse - "In This Country We Are Not Used To Wearing Masks"

Those were the words of "wisdom" from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine today when he was asked in a television interview to explain why it is so difficult to get Americans to wear a mask to help limit the spread of coronavirus. DeWine was also trying to excuse Trump's disinterest in getting people to wear masks. DeWine is not a full blown Trump die hard, but he's not exactly part of the Resistance either. He tries to walk with one foot on either side of the line. 

"In This Country We Are Not Used To Wearing Masks"  sounds like he's saying Americans won't make a simple adaption so as to save tens of thousands of lives. Talk about a "me generation" !

I wear a mask when I go into any building that is not my house or a relative's house,  and I have yet to feel even the slightest bit of discomfort. It's easy to do. 

So why is our "culture" such a failure?  De Wine said that it is a cultural thing -- evidently in America wearing a mask means you have submitted to the New World Order or some such thing.  This is what happens when the crazies are allowed, for too long, to think they make any god damn sense.

It might have been a good idea to tell the folks what show the governor was on yesterday. That very show was notable for another reason.

You seem to be characterizing those who don't wear masks. I noticed in all those "peaceful' protests in all those "peaceful" places that many were not wearing masks.

What crazies would that be?

I suspect just as many people of the liberal leftist persuasion are not too keen on wearing masks either. Most of the offenders are young and of the partying type, who don't like politicians telling them what to do.

I wear a mask when required....apartment house common areas, my volunteer gigs, retail stores, 24 Hour Fitness, the library.

The effectiveness of wearing masks is still under divided debate, but I think many citizens of all political stripes are very concerned with the abuses of power and overreach that have occurred under many governors and mayors, mostly in Democrat controlled cities and towns.

From my observations, most people are sensible:  are wearing masks and respecting social distancing (at the least).   So happily, these incidents seem to be rare.   One still wonders what is going on in those rare brains.

I carry a cloth mask with me.  I wear it only if I’m in a spot where social distancing is impossible.  The rest of the time, forget about it.  When work resumes I will most certainly wear one there.  When I’m in church I’ll wear it just so the dictator governor doesn’t shut it down so it’s to protect the church.   If I’m in a checkout line in Walmart That extends into the shopping area and social distancing isn’t possible, I wear it.  Otherwise I use the rest of the precautions and social distance.  And yes I do deliberately choose not to wear a mask except the above specifically because our governor unilaterally decreed that we must.

Of course I do.  Safety is important.  It’s all about control otherwise and liberals are going to have to get used to the idea that even when they have all the political power we libertarian conservatives will openly defy them and civilly disregard their mandates when we feel that they’ve gone too far trying to control our daily lives.  What are they going to do, prove their true dystopian nature to compel obedience by force?  It’s the only way that they will get it.

Did it ever occur to you that taking safety precautions during a pandemic is a sensible act and that government authorities imposing mandates to that effect are doing so because not everyone cooperates with safety precautions?

So strange, you note that you recognize the importance of safety, that you engage in the safety protocols because they make sense to you and then in the very same breath complain that authorities trying to get everyone to do at least what you do are simply trying to control you for gratuitous purposes.

Sounds to me it is more like the people who are refusing to wear masks are the dumbasses. The governor is doing what is best for the people of his state, which is his responsibility. Those who call him a dumbass for trying to save lives are the ones who will risk their own life, but, if they get sick with the Covid-19 will blame the governor for not doing more to help save them.

It’s a matter of principle.  If Walmart requires one shop elsewhere until the pandemic is over.  They are imposing even in states that have voluntary mask recommendations and they don’t deserve my support.  I can socially distance in the other three stores.  It is now all about power and control at this point.  People who want to impose control upon others will be resisted because they are making the attempt.  If they were recommended or voluntary I’d willingly comply but when blue state control freaks and god complex people try to rule over us as subjects rather than their being our public servants, we will openly defy them because we can and because we are going to dare them to literally attempt to gut and destroy the constitution and individual liberty in their attempts to exert control they will never gain over us.  Go back to voluntary and recommended and compliance will go up because we respect that.

They do not; they would require (under this hypothetical) ALL patrons to take the recommended precaution of wearing a mask while shopping their store.

It is now all about power and control at this point.

Bizarre, you think now WalMart is getting off exercising control over its customers?


Your position is fascinating.  All this because you do not want to wear a mask;  something that you really should be wearing if one is truly trying to be  responsible and considerate during a pandemic?

That is right. That is because they care about their employees.

No, it is about consideration for your fellow man.

but when blue state control freaks and god complex people try to rule over us as subjects rather than their being our public servants, we will openly defy them because we can and because we are going to dare them to literally attempt to gut and destroy the constitution and individual liberty in their attempts to exert control they will never gain over us.

You do realize that there are red states now mandating the same thing. Do they not care about the Constitution either? Or maybe.... just maybe, they are trying to get the pandemic under control?

Go back to voluntary and recommended and compliance will go up because we respect that. 

That is absolute rubbish. They were not doing it when it was not mandated and they were not doing it even when it is. Let's face it, human beings can be very selfish or just plain dumb. Viruses take advantage of our own failings.

I was joking Xx. You don't get better deals at dollar stores or .99 stores. The household goods are packaged with very small quantites, probably less than a dollar's worth. For example a package of aluminum foil has maybe 2 yards of foil. And the foods are all random brands you've never heard of. The produce is also inferior. You're better off going to a mainstream grocery and shopping their weekly specials.

The bottom line is that of President Trump asked me to voluntarily choose to wear a mask I’d do do because he asked and I respect him.  If governor Newscum decrees that I wear one, I will not because he didn’t ask and I can’t stand him. I do wear them where social distancing is impossible.  I will not wear one walking on the river trail or going to the lake or getting gas or going into a store where it’s easy to social distance.

One should wear a mask for safety.   Not because an authority says to or to spite an authority who recommends a mask.

This is not a partisan game nor is it a means of retribution/ defiance due to personal emotions.

 
 
 
MAGA
3.2.22  MAGA  replied to  TᵢG @3.2.21    2 weeks ago

Where they are truly needed for safety I wear one, anywhere else I make a point of using the other precautions and social distancing and of going maskless.  Like when I was at the local back the blue rally outdoors and did Social distance  but not wear one just so I could read all the Karen’s on Facebook and laugh at them.  I also made a point of signing a petition to recall gov. Newscum there.  

 
 
 
MAGA
3.2.23  MAGA  replied to  TᵢG @3.2.21    2 weeks ago

Well the bottom line is that if President Trump at tomorrow’s Wuhan virus daily briefing asks his supporters to all voluntarily wear one where we can social distance I will do so and make it known that I’m doing it because he asked it and for no other reason.  And that blue state governors and mayors could demand until the turned blue in the face and I’d never willingly comply with them or their supporters anywhere other than where I can’t social distance and that when I wear it it’s because the President asked, not because of anything they say or do

Yeah, I believe you.   You will take safety precautions if the recommendation comes from a person of your partisan persuasion, but will defy the very same precautions if instead recommended by someone of the other persuasion.

That way of thinking is flat out irresponsible.   One should follow sensible recommendations not based on partisan authority but based on the best knowledge we have of their need and efficacy.   It is universally known that wearing a mask helps you inhibit the spread of infection to others.   To ignore safety recommendations during an active pandemic on partisan grounds is confused at best.

That said, even though your rationale is entirely irresponsible IMO, what you have decided to do is not irresponsible.   Regardless of the irrational thought process, it is reasonable to not wear a mask when outside or with substantial social distancing.    If you plan to yell, cough, sneeze, etc. then you should be wearing a mask even if you can maintain a 6' social distance.   But your approach is still reasonable and more responsible than those who flat out reject precautions.

It wasn’t so much as who asked but how they sought it...did they request it and let us make up our own minds like responsible citizen adults or did they treat us like children/subjects/ serfs and order us?  The issue is still about control.  The big government side will not control small government proponents no matter how much political power theirs amasses.  We will defy liberal orders till they turn blue in the face with demands but will happily cooperate with requests made when reasonably asked.

3.2.27  MAGA  replied to  TᵢG @3.2.25    2 weeks ago

TᵢG
3.2.28  TᵢG  replied to  MAGA @3.2.26    2 weeks ago

The issue is a responsible course of action given we are in a pandemic.

Who cares what politicians think or do?   Forget all of them and simply do a tiny bit of research to understand common-sense, responsible precautions.   Then, using good adult judgment, exercise a safe and responsible course of action.

To abide by (or reject) regulations based on partisan factors or by a childish refusal of authority is irrational.

A Facebook friend in Texas just shared a story about an outbreak.  A church there conducted a summer camp for hundreds of kids, with no masks or social distancing.  So far, 30 kids and teachers have tested positive.  The church holds itself not responsible for the spread that occurred on its watch.

And judging from the FB comments on the church's announcement, it seems that some parents really want their kids to get to heaven quickly.  "Spiritual health more important than the risk", and similar bullshit.

This crap makes me ashamed of people.

When fighting a serious pandemic it goes beyond negligence. It should be considered criminal, as not only are they threatening their own lives, but, who knows how many others. And the parents who refuse to have their kids given the vaccine should be considered engaging in child endangerment, and their children removed. It should not be the choice of the parents, and the children are too young to make their own decision.

I am not in favor of people losing their children, but, I also don't agree with deliberately exposing children to a deadly virus as the Covid-19.

I read a report yesterday that states in the Corpus Christi TX area 85 infants have tested positive for the virus and one has died.

I saw the report of the testing numbers.  I hadn't heard about the death until now.  I worry about my nephew's fiancee.  She's pregnant, due in October, and neither of them will wear a mask.

Like a good little Southern Baptist teen, I've been to Latham Springs a few times.  Almost all activities, including meals, are held outside.  I'll be curious to learn how many kids, staffers, chaperones, etc. ultimately test positive.  Should the number be substantial, it will cast doubt on the premise that masks and social distancing aren't as necessary in an outdoor environment.

I would rather my children reach adult hood and find their own spiritual health than die at 12 years old trying to find it

I'm glad we have another issue for the virtue signaling types to go on about.

That is the whole point and angering the Karen’s of America is well worth it.  Like I said elsewhere reading their comments on twitter or Facebook when they can’t get people to bend the knee and bow prostrate before them and kiss their ring as the holders of all true knowledge, their tantrums are totally worth it.  Then when someone we respect  asks us to do it as a patriotic gesture we do so and let the Karen’s know we are wearing them only because he asked it of us and that their demands or shaming only intensified the resistance up to now. They need to know that we will not be ruled by the likes of them. Never.  So, yes, tomorrow I will wear my mask much more and I’ll get a MAGA or TRUMP 2020 one so they will know who I’m wearing it for.

Maybe what some are saying that I have little understanding of Americans is right, because it really is a mystery to me that Americans have no problem complying with, even championing, what is required by their Constitution and Amendments, the Federal, State, Municipal laws, bylaws, rules, regulations, traffic laws and even parking regulations, but become insanely resistant to being asked to wear a mask that can prevent infections and save lives, even their own grandparents' lives.  Only THAT particular requirement offends their personal rights and freedom.. Can anyone explain that to me?

DeWine is not a full blown Trump die hard, but he's not exactly part of the Resistance either. He tries to walk with one foot on either side of the line.

Man who walk in middle of road get hit by cars going in both directions.
