    When you take out the politics and needing your side to be right it is plain weird to think this is an argument. We have people promoting flouting the laws put in place to protect against death and implying you should be ashamed for expecting someone to not do something that will kill. This. is. weird. And it shows us just how simplistic and infantile we have become about the concept of freedom to do what you want. If it causes another person harm- physical, financial - meh- that is their problem.
    Because I also agree, and I know quoting and saying I agree annoys hovey. I'm sure it is just common sense to stay out of it, just like letting other people wander around potentially spreading expensive and deadly viruses.

    • Is there a top mask study in regards to Covid? Can some share what it is and link if possible?

        This study done by the Brits was posted on this forum earlier. I've referenced it a few times in Facebook discussions with my derp kuntry kuzins in rural Ohio (it didn't help...).

        https://royalsocietypublishing.org/d...rspa.2020.0376

        From section 4 Discussion:
        Both of our models show that, under a wide range of plausible parameter conditions, facemask use by the public could significantly reduce the rate of COVID-19 spread, prevent further disease waves and allow less stringent lock-down regimes. The effect is greatest when 100% of the public wear facemasks.

        ...

        Our analyses from this model are consistent with the conclusions of practical studies on the use of professional and home-made facemasks to reduce exposure to respiratory infections among the public, where it was concluded that any type of general mask use is likely to decrease viral exposure and infection risk on a population level, in spite of imperfect fit and/or adherence.

        • The faster reply would be to google "mask effectiveness" and add stuff to that- study, covid, etc. There are more studies are article about it than one is able to post at once.

          And they all say the same thing- wearing a mask filters droplets on the way out preventing virus from getting out, and they also filter droplets on the way in, keeping viruses out. The rates of filtering is different, but both are an increase- to the point of being able to reduce the likelihood of getting an infectious dose.

          • Sometimes for sh*ts and giggles one can replace the words “COVID-19” with “AIDS” then imagine how the righty tighty whiteys would react. In this instance I use AIDS instead of HIV on purpose due to their freak out in the 80’s and how revolted they were when it was mentioned.
            Even better, replace the debate of use of a face mask with a condom......Bet the “hoax” talk, “price of doing business “ talk would disappear in trumpyland and on fox....National emergency to the highest levels. Infection and mortality rates skyrocketing......Your fox headlines.

            These frauds in charge now would mandate condoms or probably even outlaw sex, except for white baptists screwing in the missionary position.

            Just imagine the different response from the trumpettes.....

              My general response to those asking...or flat out denying...mask effectiveness....is if they aren't effective...why are medical professionals wearing them then?
              Havent had anyone come up with a well thought out reply to that yet

                Read that on Twitter last night. What a despicable human being he is. History will not be kind to him and many others. How do you even begin to justify that?

                  Weren't the "righty's" in charge in the 80's?
                  That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                      Exactly. The hysteria and fear was over the top. Virus from sex? They freaked. Virus from breathing air? No big deal.

                          • Another way to look at it: Replace the “no masks” signs and chants with “no condoms”.
                            The stupidity should be obvious now.

                              Seemed like you were suggesting that they would have mandated condom use, and that they're being hypocritical for not mandating masks.

                              Also, weren't Reagan and the righty's accused of minimizing or ignoring HIV/Aids in the 80's, as opposed to implementing "hysterical" or over-the-top responses?

                                They freaked once it started infecting them. For many years...it was a "them" virus and the right didn't care at all. Hell IIRC Reagan didn't even say the word AIDS for 4 years after they first found it.
