Masks Facts.


Honored Social Butterfly

Ultimately, it’s not enough to just wear a mask. You’ve got to do it properly. Think of your mask as a condom, a pair of underwear, or anything else that may protect others from you. Wear it where you are supposed to wear it. After all, it wouldn’t be that re-assuring to tell your partner that you’ve got things covered because you are wearing a condom on your ear.

But what about 'freedom'?  You know, the freedom to have no compassion or consideration for others?  The freedom to not wear a mask even if others die because of it?


Actually, I think it's a shame that those not wearing masks can't be held liable for a person dying of covid who did wear one.

Biden wants all of us to wear masks outside. Bravo! But I guess that saving lives is not as important as saving face.
