    I realize there's no denying a large portion of Trump supporters of ALL ages are anti-mask etc.......but there's a large percentage of young people in general that are anti-mask, the percentages of Republicans goes noticeably down when you're talking about Gen X and millenials. I see it locally...we're a very Republican state but the college most certainly is not...and it's rare to see them wear a mask. I actually ran into one this weekend who even now, 8 months into this thing, said he doesn't OWN one.

    What we can't seem to get through people's heads is.......wearing a mask is more for OTHER people than it is for you, so NOT wearing one...is simply selfish and disrespectful. I mean, it's a mask, it's not a ball and chain.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    What if you already had the virus? Why wear a mask then when you canít get it a second time and most likely donít have it?

You canít go out by yourself on the lake, you canít go to a funeral with your family but itís ok gathering and blocking traffic. Itís ok to riot and steal but how dare you have a funeral for your sibling!

    Then we learned that the death rate was significantly less than what they projected. We went from 3-4% death rate to less than .2. Then we saw the economic toll that happened from locking down and democratic governors continuing to shut things down even though the numbers were nearly back to normal.

    You think having Biden in office is going to change the mindset? Itís not going to change mine. If he does a National mask mandate then he can throw me in jail for it. I know my county sheriff wonít do AJ thing because he even said a mask mandate is stupid and they wonít be enforcing it

    Wait. Are you saying that there are nearly 165,000,000 unhealthy 50+ year olds in America?

    So much for your horse poop theory..

    Btw, given that you're a healthcare worker, you should be embarrassed of your own take and stance on this corona.

    Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
    You have a very delusional perspective if you believe that Americans are going to do what medical experts tell them. People have heart attacks and never change their lifestyle. They have lungs removed and never quit smoking. Every single person that ever worked in healthcare has stories about patients who are just flat out dumb. We are an embarrassingly unhealthy country. If kicking covid were as simple as you believe it be, weíd have done the same to heart disease a long time ago. But you canít make people follow instructions, even if the consequences of not doing so are deadly. There are 13 people that work in my department. Two of us are still wearing n95s. The rest stopped months ago. And we work in a county thatís had some of the highest case numbers in the state.

    Exactly. Itís funny seeing the Dems in here saying we could have controlled it in January/February when the same Dems who were in charge all came out and said everything was fine during those times. But again itís easier to bash the person in charge

    Of course looking back thereís stuff that could have been done but youíre foolish if you legit thank that you could control the virus back then with all those things happening and Democrats calling Trump racist for banning travel from other countries (China etc)

    Hindsight is always 20/20 and I would argue the virus was in here way before February when the first case happened. But again you can always look back and trash the past of course unless youíre Cuomo who the democrats will praise and defend like he did nothing wrong in all of this

    I do understand Cuomo did that, this is exactly what I'm telling you, our govt is incompetent. On the top of that pyramid and actively battling common sense and accepted science is the king idiot Donald Trump. But this entire govt has failed us.

    No, in January when the cases were in single digits, we should have started screening travelers. I posted this back in February. It's not hindsight 20/20, its science I learned in the American academic system in 2010. That's the power of science, it allows you to predict things, every **** up this dumb *** govt made was EASILY PREDICTABLE.

    In February I honestly thought New York and the west coast were going to be super limited travel in and out. Just business travel, no personal. If you asked me in February, I would have said this is what I predict the US govt will do. It's not hindsight 20/20, its science from 2010. Science which has been accepted as verified fact for over a century.

    Trumps travel ban had nothing to do with protecting citizens from the virus. And I know you know that, anyone that repeats this as if Trump tried battling the virus but wasn't allowed to is just a straight up idiot. Dont support him because hes Republican, hold the ****in idiot responsible because you pay him taxes.

    Because the mask prevents you from spreading the virus to other people...have you literally done NO research into this?
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.

    I must have missed the announcement that they'd verified a person can't get...or pass..the virus around once they've had it.

    Plus, that's what, 8% of the population?

    You obviously are clueless and didnít read the post. How can you spread the virus when you already had it and thereís been like one case of getting it twice so far?

    It is reassuring to see some on the other side of the political spectrum adopt common sense.

    The reason that people don't focus on the mask being a primary benefit to those around you is because of how selfish most people are. They couldn't give one single **** about not getting someone else sick. They only care if it might help them not get sick. It's about respect for your fellow man, which many people just lack.

    Obviously you haven't either. Masks do not prevent anything. They minimize the potential of spreading the virus.
