for others the political issue is more important.
This I will never understand. How can a mask be a political tool when both red and blue states are requiring them, and even Trump wears a mask when needed.

The mindset “Im not wearing one for political reasons IMO, is childesh at best, and deadly at worst.


5 months ago, who would’ve predicted where the world would be at today. Sad times, deadly times, end times.

I understand what you are saying Andy C. The virus maybe overblown by the media and used as a political tool by the left, but it is still a deadly virus. Have there been worse situations--yes, of course. But to me, a mask is not a political statement, it is a statement of I am doing my best to take care of the vunerable. I would not be surprised if the virus mutates or gets worse. I am sorry to see that wearing a mask has become a political statement.

I agree. The mask wearing as being a test of politics or worse, faith, has been a travesty.

In my opinion, the power behind all this is larger than red/blue. For years I have believed that both left wing and right wing are actually part of the same wing, but are still allowed to operate to give people the feeling that they still have some choice in what is happening, when actually there is something more powerful going on that controls both red and blue. While both red and blue have their own agendas, this power, that we do not see or vote on, has much to gain through a manipulated global crisis: manipulated numbers, manipulated "experts," manipulated politicians, manipulated crashing of the economy, manipulated publc who has shown they can be controlled through fear. Hence the continued inflating of numbers and the pressure for masks even though many have shown their lack of effectiveness.

The mask requirement is being used, politically and financially, to manipulate the opening/closing of businesses, the take-down of small business, to permission being given or denied to the population to do business outside of government mandates, to teach the public that "they" are above laws, that lawlessness is now the order of the day and our constitutional rights no longer protect us. If you feel safer wearing one, wear one. People with certain conditions may be safer wearing one, fine. People with breathing issues may be safer not wearing one, fine. There are many reasons to wear one or to not wear one, but many don't because they believe what I have just written and strongly react against being pawns in this greater scheme. Whoever and whatever this power is is what is behind this snowballing of events that is about to take us into the most evil days of history. Many are refusing to wear masks out of a sense of resistance to this scheme. Biblically-speaking, we know where this is all leading, but we don't have to go along with it. Just as many will refuse a mandated vaccine. And a mandated vaccine cannot be justified unless people believe that there is indeed something fearful and that we are all in danger. So until the vaccine is ready, the population must continue to believe there is great danger.

Sorry for the lengthy reply, and I know many will disagree, but in my opinion, masks are just the most visible play in a much larger game. (And yes, I do wear one if required.) And if this makes me too much of a conspiracy theorist, then the mods can just delete this post. I have not meant to offend or judge anyone who holds other views-- as I said, there are many views on masks.

Someone actually figured out a solution for Covid virus. Biden gets elected.

Basically if Biden wins the MSM will change the narrative. The “experts” will revert back to what they said originally that mask don’t work, there is no longer any need to worry, it is not much different than the flu.
My only concern about going maskless is missing the laughs watching Joe with a mask hanging off one ear, wearing it like a feedbag, etc. I was hoping he would pull it over his eyes and ask why the lights were off.

I don’t think what you said is a conspiracy theory, you are giving an analysis on what you see and hear. I’m where I just don’t trust any segment of our society anymore, political, medical, social,academic, legislative. Everything has changed to the outrageous these days that my only trust is in God and what He says. If Isaiah 5:20 tells us people would make evil good and good evil and we are seeing that unfold before us then it makes it hard to believe what we are told particularly coming from people who Display fruits of ungodliness. When in doubt, pray about it.

Interesting theory, one I oppose.

I dont remember the last time I disagreed with you, so it does make me “think” about it more.

A doctor on Fox News made an interesting claim about the increase in case numbers and deaths. He says they’re coming from transmissions of Covid that took place one to two months ago and are now showing serious symptoms. Others attribute it to reopening the economy and others say it’s due to increased testing. Should I draw straws for the right explaination?

I think its all the above to include tons of younger people going in bars, large social gatherings, little to no wearing of masks in some areas, increased contact tracing, and overall increased testing.

The state of Nevada just announced they have less than eight weeks of unemployment left for the entire state. The bars were just shut down again last night and the governor has threatened he’ll shut down restaurants and casinos. Could it be a master plan to make sure everyone is homeless so they can’t vote? May be extreme thought but I wouldn’t put anything past these demons.

My bigger concern is the camel/tent effect. Now that they have us conditioned to wear masks I'm waiting for the next item to come along in our conditioning.

The next flu season, if we are still here, will provide a lot more information on how serious "they" are in destroying the country.

They'll come up with some crazy notion that women are why the virus spreads or needing the most protection and they want us to wear veils because they're "looser/more comfortable/less CO2 build-up" than masks. They'll pull up a photo(s)/video that shows the person wearing a mask when she tries to object on medical grounds/get a doctor's note :sarcasm

In my mind I am not convinced yet that these duck tape and bailing wire masks that many wear are doing anything except checking off a box.
My proposed down-and-dirty mask effectiveness demonstration, based on my observations that some people spray when they speak, and some people simply cannot brush their teeth without getting crud all over the mirror and faucet :mad

Place some (not too much) water in mouth, and before swallowing, start talking a few inches from the mirror. Use lots of words beginning with P. Peter-piper-picked-a-peck-of-pickled-peppers etc. sounds like a good verse to recite. Water is *everywhere* After cleaning up the mess (and probably changing shirts to be fair in comparing results), try again while wearing the home-made mask (must fit properly, including going under the chin and over the nose). Not perfect, but a lot better.

I understand people don't go around speaking with water in their mouths, just as masks aren't (normally) saturated. . . just a demonstration of reduced droplet spread with even a very imperfect barrier.

Yep, this is why I hope we will be going Home before long... (I can't figure out how to link or post to a picture, but if you google "goal of the left meme" its there....

Many of us hate the forced mask requirements because we don't like the idea of being forced to obey rules that we don't believe are based on factual evidence. I don't trust the experts, I see the mask as a form of control, and I firmly believe that the entire Coronavirus reaction was poor. The elderly or immune compromised people should isolate and wear masks if they wish. The healthy should not be required to do so.

I'm not afraid of getting sick nor do I worry about spreading it because I don't see death as the worst thing possible. I don't fear it for myself nor for others. God is in control and knows when every person's time is up. I fully trust he is drawing those near to him, especially those who could possibly die from this virus.

I trust he will provide for anyone who may get sick. This is how I live my life with any sickness. I wash my hands, stay home when sick, but I also know that viruses will spread regardless. People die regardless and I pray that those who will die from this disease will hear the Gospel. I see this as humans trying hard to control outcomes which is impossible.

That is my opinion and I will continue to resist this as much as possible. I understand many on here will disagree and that's your perogative.

Why is it that when I don't have a mask on, my face never itches. When I do wear a mask, I have to be very self conscious not to itch, because it always itches when wearing a mask - Is it just me?

Mask or no mask, virus, or no virus, Im still out and about everyday, doing most everything I was doing before other than going to the gym. Im very careful, but not hiding in my house. Common sense and science guides how I choose to stay as safe as possible.

Same here. And yet we aren't supposed to touch our face to scratch it.
