Rational Questions that the Shutdown "WEAR A MASK" Crowd Can't Answer
1) Why has "flatten the curve" been completely ignored?
2) If masks work, then why are we social distancing? If social distancing works, then why do we have to wear masks?
3) Fauci stated early on that masks didn't do anything. Then he stated later that he lied because they didn't want the public to buy up all the masks for the healthcare workers. Now he states masks does do something. So which Fauci are we to believe?
4) 3 gives way to point 1. We are no longer in danger of running out of supplies. Which means the curve has been flattened for a long time. So why are we still shutting down?
5) When does this end? Idiots are running around saying, "just wear the damn mask so we can open up". For how long? Am i supposed to accept that wearing the mask is what is needed for the rest of our lives?
6) When flu season starts, will the same maskers demand masks be worn at this time as well?
7) Why hasn't anyone apologized for being so catastrophically wrong during the entire COVID season?
8) For the maskers, what is your limit before you tell the "officials" NO?
9) The maskers crowd likes to claim, "the mask isn't for you. It doesn't protect you, it protects others". So stay with me, if a mask doesn't protect me, then how does it protect others? Let's remove the whole me and others part. The statement then is "the mask doesn't protect people, but it does protect people"... That's asinine. So i'm to wear a mask, that doesn't work, to protect people from a virus, that doesn't care about what cloth is on your face? And the argument, is that it's for the asymptomatic to not spread to others. But we also have no idea who is asymptomatic. So we are wearing a mask to protect ourselves from unknown people that might have a virus, and that mask doesn't prevent spread of China Flu at all... Why can't you just say, "wear a mask because some people are frightened of other people, and we don't understand anything about the virus. And since we don't understand it, then we need a symbol to remind us that the boogeyman is out there, and you never know when he'll strike."
10) For the newly mandated "wear masks wherever you go" orders. If you have to wear a mask now, because government mandates you. Then why didn't you have to wear one in the past? If this virus is so deadly, that a mask is required for every human being, then why wasn't it this deadly a week ago? Pretty damn irresponsible and reckless to have "officials and doctors" not mandate these masks from the beginning, and waiting 4 months before doing so...Or, could it be, that this is knee jerk reactions and the "officials and doctors" still don't know what the hell they are doing?
11) and the obvious...riots/protests/BLMrallies, how can a virus be so smart as to ignore riots/protests/BLMrallies, and only resurge when Trump rallies begin? Smart virus, indeed.

ETA:

12) If masks work so well, then why aren't the areas requiring masks for penalty of fines/imprisonment, also enforcing via fines/imprisonment, the proper wearing/handling of a facemask? We are supposed to believe that these masks are the savior to the world, so much so that idiots are mandating people wear them or go to prison. Yet, they are not mandating people wear them properly. Why? How many stores have you walked into with people wearing masks sitting below their nose, or hanging off their ear? Even Latoya the Destroya was using her mask to wipe sweat off her face. Why is she not in prison per her current rulings?

ETA: Just a clarification, i don't have issues with anyone wearing a mask. The issue is with others demanding I wear a mask "or else". Those are the "maskers" i'm referencing. This should be evident due to the context of the post, but some didn't get it.

UPDATE: Added #12

This assumes they aren’t “rioted out” by November.

Much like Lawrence of Arabia’s army, I see a fair number deserting once they have looted enough that they are happy.

Masks do work on cutting down the spread. I've seen it happen firsthand in nursing home-like settings over the last three months.

So does washing your hands and using hand sanitizer. In fact, more germs are transmitted by not washing hands than wearing a mask. So why haven't we mandated all people use anti-bacterial soap and hand sanitizer?

Also, how are the masks used? Are they discarded after each use, like in hospitals? Haven't we been told that touching a mask with your hands effectively eliminates the usefulness of the mask?

And frankly, precautions should be taken in nursing homes, where people have compromised immune systems. But mandating masks in perpetuity without reasonable explanations or consistency is nothing more than fear mongering for the November elections. Yes, it's always political, even when it shouldn't be.

The masks work regardless of touching them or using them a few days.

The explanations have been reasonable but not consistent. Nobody wants masks for any longer than needed, but if they can get us back to normal it bodes well for the economy and November.

I really think we should keep it as it’s always been in my lifetime. You do what you think keeps you safe and frick the rest. Our healthcare isn’t the governments job period. It’s not the governments place to make the calls they are making. Warn the public, but that’s about it.

Your post is spot on everywhere but here.
I hate wearing a mask in the store or out on the town too.
Hate it.
It seems defeatist.

BUT . . .

If everyone wears one, it will absolutely cut down CV19 transmission. We know that.

That is not a Democrat construct. It's science. We've known for over 100yrs masks prevent aerosolization and disease transfer.

This image from October 1918 shows fans at a Ga Tech football game wearing masks -- required apparel for the event.



quote:

In October 1918, as the Allies neared victory in World War I in Europe, the Spanish flu outbreak swept across the U.S. It would eventually kill 50 million people worldwide and 675,000 people in the U.S., about one out of every 200 Americans. Victims sometimes died within hours of the onset of symptoms.

On the seventh day of the month, in an attempt to control the epidemic, Atlanta’s city council ordered all schools, churches, movie theaters, vaudeville houses, dance and billiard halls closed for two months. Two doctors on the city’s board of health warned of being overwhelmed by patients.Dr. J.P. Kennedy, the city’s health officer, warned in the Atlanta Constitution that “I can see no chance of controlling it unless we resort to the closing of these places. It looks like we are going to have a serious epidemic.”

The order, though, did not include an impending fair and pageant, on account of their being held outdoors.Open-air gatherings, such as football games, were evidently approved. Schools held meetings in advance of school-board elections outside the schoolhouses. At Camp Gordon, an Army training camp on the site of what is now DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, soldiers slept outdoors.

What is normal? I don't think you are lying, but who decides what is normal? The reason i bring up november, is because once the elections are over, this virus is over. I can almost guarantee with 100% certainty, that you will stop hearing about coronavirus after the election.

For how long? Again, if what you say is true, then the second the masks come off, the transmissions will go up again. Then guess what? Masks back on. And it will NEVER END. Rather than trying to hide from the virus, shouldn't we be building up immunities to it? Isn't that what is happening? The virus is becoming less and less impactful, particularly on healthy individuals. The mortality rate is infinitesimally low among nearly all age groups. Even the most vulnerable, is still very low compared to other viruses, illnesses, or varying diseases that kills much quicker. But only precautions are taken in such drastic measures, with such flawed data, on this virus? Why?

The answer: 2020 Elections.

What's it like to work an honest job everyday, call both of your still married parents, and then go home and care for your family above yourself?

It’s weird that this seems to be the only photograph that exists of what was supposedly a widespread phenomenon during the Spanish Flu epidemic.

If seatbelts work why do we have speed limits?
