Why do you really think people are protesting mask? You think its really about their care for "freedom"? The average person works 105 days a year to pay taxes and govt fees, we need permits to purchase and carry guns, if you want to put a new roof on your house you need a permit, build a shed in the yard, best get your permit, take the kids out in a canoe and it better have the govt sticker on it.

No one bothers protesting these egregious infringements of freedom so why mask?

Because there is no consequences from the state for not wearing one. You can hide behind the disability act and you have no fear of being fined, harmed or imprisoned. This is just a chance for "lovers of freedom" to stick it to the man without fear of real consequence. I cant believe how brave these people are "standing up to the govt" knowing there will be zero consequences for them.

They are just refusing to wear them, my facebook is currently full of my friends acting like they are defying Hitler by not wearing mask, its absurd. None of them bothered to not comply with far more egregious infringements upon freedom but all of sudden they are LARPING as some defiant freedom fighters for not putting on mask in public

(Larping is "Live action role playing")

A lot of conservative people are angry and justifiably so over how the left is destroying America and pushing towards a totalitarian, one world government. They have displaced their righteous anger against other changes the left is making like the destruction of American history, the destruction of monuments, the attack on free speech, the attack on white people, the attack on self sufficient people and placed it on having to wear a mask.

do we really need to go down this road again???
I'll give you the short version
Some think its all a made up (maybe not made up but totally blown out of portion)load of manure to hurt the economy and hurt Trump in the election and they refuse to be part of it.

And there are those that dont realize in all actuality they may have a better chance of dying in a car wreck driving to get a mask than dying from the virus.

One thing about it everyone is pretty dug in on there side.

I've long surmised masks are an outward expression of submission. Boil it all down to the core and there deep instincts with some folks, such as myself, that i dont want to give in to that level of control. That's regardless of the effectiveness and general following of rule of law. Just how i feel.

Gary, the E is silent. In a sentence it would be, who's going on the next beer run, gregious. grin

Maybe the mask is the proverbial straw???


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Mask is not for safety but to show control of a population.

No, I had to work all the past three days, I felt the general Tman consensus was that they were waiting on bated breath for me to dispense my opinion. I know y'all appreciate so you're welcome.

I'm angry and thats my point! Not one i've met will do anything if there is even a hint of potential consequence. When I lamented having to get a permit to carry a handgun I heard multiple times "just do its easy", now they are telling me i'm a sheep if I wear a mask? Like they are some brash fighters of freedom, what a joke.

Because it's rediculous. If you wanted to force masks, do it day one.

All studies show that masks are not effective for ALL RESPIRATORY VIRUSES.
