    Re: I still refuse to wear a face mask

    I wear a mask because I feel I am personally responsible to protect myself as I am considered one of the vulnerable. I use hand sanitizer, and sometimes wear rubber gloves. I practice social distancing for the same reason. It has been really hard but until there is a vaccination I don't want to become just another statistic. But at the same time I do not expect the rest of the population to adhere to the same. I know of some folks who are young and have been laid off and they are struggling. I know of business owners who are worried they will lose everything. My view is the vulnerable need to protect themselves while letting the rest get on with life. The overwhelming number of deaths have occurred with the vulnerable. Many in nursing homes and assisted living places. It is a scandal of the number of deaths that have occurred in these situations. If governors can't protect their most vulnerable what good are they?

Trust me, if things get bad enough where you live as they are in other areas, you WILL be mandated to wear a mask in public and you WILL be ticketed and have to pay a fine if you don't.
    You are sick


    Full of hate, it seems

    And likely a control freak

    You extreme covid fear mongerers, act as if getting the virus is a death sentence. It isn't. Few people get the virus, and very few of those die. I'm perfectly willing to trust acquired immunity. Shutting the country down for .03% is crazy. We are causing worse problems in the damage to the economy and the long lasting effects on peoples lives and businesses.
    You want everyone to wear a mask, ok open up the entire country and lets go. You folks claim mask work, so lets go normal with a mask. Truth is the left doesn't want normal. The want to win an election.

    Re: I still refuse to wear a face mask

    I wear a mask when I'm near people, it's not a big deal and it makes sense. I'm being considerate of others, because although I may not have any symptoms, I may have the virus and be able to spread it to others. The only jerkoffs refusing to wear masks are selfish children. They can't handle doing things a bit differently during a pandemic that has already killed over 100,000 Americans. They don't give a damn about those who have weakened immune systems, may be suffering with cancer or other ailments, they only care about themselves......hmmmm, who does that sound like? President Me, Me, Me, Me, Me??

    So these people with weakened immune systems, etc... Why are they outside then near a lot of people? They have no business being in a grocery store or areas with large groups of people.

    It sounds to me then, these are the people that are being reckless.
    Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there?

    There laws requiring I wear a seat belt. There are laws requiring me to wear clothes when I walk in the public (people just cannot walk nude in public).... lots of laws... I dare the government to make a face mask law. If they feel it is that important, do it!!!
    You've proudly admitted to crapping in public, multiple times.

    Sometimes, things like this happen but for the mad pooper, I hope she gets help. I definitely don't think this is a crime.
    Now you announce you refuse to wear a mask, like that should be a shock to anyone.

    Am I supposed to be surprised that basic hygiene measures are not high on your list of priorities?
    Why do we fall?
    So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.
