Sad state of affairs

Great letter from Adrian O’Connor “This isn’t rocket science, folks.” There’s also an old adage that “the fish rots from the head down.” I read in another publication recently that a citizen in a small town in New York admonished a local sanitation worker for not wearing a face mask and the sanitation worker replied: “When the big guy in the White House takes this serious enough to wear a face mask then I’ll put one on.” It’s sad what has come to pass as leadership in this great nation.

Oh! The testosterone flinging is beginning! No doubt shooting blanks....Ok guys, you know the: drill, saddle up, rifle up, and march into the den of government, defend yourselves from a piece of cloth! Tis tyranny! Hasten to the dock and throw boxes of masks into the river! Lastly, thin the herd, my good fellows!

Never "Left" a crisis go to waste - https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/27/mandatory-masks-arent-about-safety-theyre-about-social-control/

Bow down to your dictatorial, racist governor, Virginia... or else!

Put away your masks and get back out into the real world. We're being lied to. https://www.iihs.org/topics/fatality-statistics/detail/state-by-state https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/understanding/statistics

You are contradicting Virginia state law, Con.

Doc Samson

"You are contradicting an UNCONSTITUTIONAL Virginia state law, Con." There, fixed it for you. Hey, remember your outrage when Coonman Northam appeared without his own mask on? Yeah, me either...

Ali

I fail to see in the Constitution where it prohibits states from mandating masks during a health crisis. Don't break the law, Doc. Don't encourage others to break the law. It was dumb for the governor to go out without his mask, particularly given his pending order. He admitted he was wrong...which is something you and your follow Orange cultists can NEVER do. You are to invested in your alternative "truth".

I'm disliking Northum more every day, but he at least knows how to put a complete sentence together. Doctors and nurses are obligated to try and save these "oppressed" pigs when they get sick. Ironic.

Wear a mask in public or stay home. It isn't Christian to endanger your life or that of someone else.

Too logical for most of the faux Christians on here...thanks tho

Doc Samson

So, "rot" is a trickle down theory the Left will buy into? Lol. And Trump is the reason we "deplorables" won't wear a mask? Okay, but I did note upon my last trip to Wal-Mart that 80-90% of the folks WERE WEARING MASKS. If only more of us would listen to Hollywood stars and pro-China MSM... [rolleyes]

Wear a mask. It's mandatory now.

Bernie Mac

Governor Gosnell Blackface has no moral authority to mandate anything to anyone. But you can go ahead and bow to his every word. I'm okay with that.

Ali

State law says you will wear a mask, too, Bernie. Or you can stay at home. Choice is yours.

Bernie and the crew are so very entitled that they consider slapping a mask on their face when then go into a store is "oppression." How sickening and disrespectful to the front line workers, who will then have to fight to save their life if they get seriously ill. Oppression for me would be a knee to my neck while I'm trying to breathe ….

Ali

He has legal authority whether you like his "moral" authority or not. Wear a mask or stay home, bud. Otherwise, you are breaking the law, disrespecting others by insinuating that you dont' care if they catch the disease or not, and showing your complete ignorance. It is a class one misdemeanor and could end up getting an establishment's licenses pulled if they don't enforce it. Don't be selfish Mac.

Ali

Only saw two jerks without a mask today in a store today. It was obvious that they felt "out of place" and kept nervously looking around. Some stores now have "No Mask, No Service" signs in the windows. Good for them.

Exactly!
