  1. If it is unsafe it is because of the jerks who will not wear masks.

  2. James, you cite a phony study by freedom loving non health care folks that only you would point to as somewhat justifying maskless actions to embrace the right to liberty that some claim they want to constitutionally protect. What a crock of bs.

  3. James, the long term care facilities in Texas decrease in the number of COVID cases you posted above is directly related to the requirement to have all personnel within those facilities to wear masks when in close contact with the aged population that resides in those facilities.

    1. unlike NJ where we murder seniors

  4. The NAZIs have been enforcing mask mandates since June yet the numbers still go up… Gee I wonder why?

  5. Does anyone believe the numbers anymore?
    Its all been hyper-politicized.

  6. Gov Goldman Sachs has done a shit job.
