      Why not wear a full body MOPP suit? Make everyone feel much safer?

      The point is, it's pointless to begin with, a huge waste of time and resources, and it's knuckling under to little dictator wannabes.

      By now, every surface everywhere is coated with COVID, no matter here you go. Mayebe a SCUBA suit that will let you travel inside a tank full of bleach might be best . Remember, there is a lot of other , more dangerous stuff out there than just plain old COVID. Probably should wear Kevlar jammies at night, too,, while you're at it. Better to be prepared for everything.

        Impressive. One does wonder how someone overlooked that? I mean pleading to 49 murders (and probably as many more he won’t be held accountable for) doesn’t make him your run of the mill car thief or B&E guy. Sigh.

            • There's someone (with facemask and gloves) in the background behind the dwarf there with a sign "YWG1WGA" - what's that about ?

                The wearing of a mask has not as aim to stop the spreading of a pandemic ,because wearing a mask does not stop the spreading of a pandemic .
                Besides there was no obligation for the man to wear a mask, unless you can prove the opposite .
                And,why should the man not carry a gun ? He had the right to do it,unless you can prove the opposite .
                And, afaics, there is no law imposing those who carry a gun to wear a mask,or the opposite .

                  And, afaics, you have no clue what the laws say in every state. There are actually Eos which have the power of law which impose the wearing of masks in certain states and for certain activities or in certain conditions like in crowded spaces or inside stores when people cannot keep social distancing.

                  • The mask wars:

                    https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/26/polit...lth/index.html


                    The simple act of wearing a mask to protect others during a pandemic is now a political and cultural flashpoint, underscoring the polarization afflicting every corner of American life.


                    President Donald Trump's use of the bully pulpit to defy his own government's advice on face coverings has turned into the era's latest ideologically motivated assault on science and civility. His noncompliance is a symbol of his refusal to adopt the customary codes of the presidency during a crisis and his habit of turning even a dire national moment to political advantage. The episode is unfolding at a particularly intense moment of the President's cycle of distortion and distraction; in a first on Tuesday, Twitter appended a fact-check warning to one of his tweets.

                    Trump and his White House are mocking presumptive Democratic 2020 rival Joe Biden for wearing a mask in public as conservative commentators brand the practice as elite liberal fear-mongering. Biden, in his first in-person interview since the stay-at-home orders, lashed back at Trump in reply, telling CNN's Dana Bash that the President's "macho" and "falsely masculine" behavior was "stoking deaths" in comments that will only deepen national estrangement on the issue.

                    "He's a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way. I mean every leading doc in the world is saying you should wear a mask when you're in a crowd," Biden said.
                    We are not now that strength which in old days
                    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                      So what, then, is the purpose of wearing a face mask?

                      The doctors have stated that the purpose of wearing a mask is to protect other people. Not wearing a mask is both selfish and foolish.

                      • An interesting article on wearing face masks:

                        https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/27/healt...day/index.html


                        Americans are at odds over whether it's necessary to keep taking coronavirus protective measures, but a leading researcher says the data is clear: The path ahead in the Covid-19 pandemic is being shaped by masks.


                        "We now have really clear evidence that wearing masks works -- it's probably a 50% protection against transmission," Dr. Chris Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, or IHME, at the University of Washington, told CNN late Tuesday.

                        "And so, what happens in the next month or two is very much in the hands of how people respond."

                        But as health experts stress the importance of wearing masks, the matter has gotten political. President Donald Trump has foregone face coverings in public while his presumptive rival Joe Biden has worn one, staking their ground in the partisan debate over whether masks are a paranoid restriction or a necessary precaution.
                        We are not now that strength which in old days
                        Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                        Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                        To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                            What I said was not nonsense,not a conspiracy theory, not a false information :
                            To wear a mask does not stop the spreading of a pandemic,besides there is no proof that the pandemic is spreading .
                            There is no proof that the man with the gun was obliged to wear a mask .
                            There is no proof that he had not the right to wear a gun .
                            There is no law saying that you can only wear a mask if you carry a gun,or the opposite .
                            The photo is totally irrelevant in a discussion about the wearing of face masks .

                              A and B are not related :it is not because the purpose of wearing a mask is to protect other people (and the director of the infamous IHME was obliged to admit that it failed in 50 % of the cases to do what the purpose was ) that every one would be obliged to wear everywhere and always a face mask .
                              I wear a mask only if I am close enough to infect some one .And,if the other person does not wear a mask,why should I wear a mask ? Besides the initial and main effect of being infected is that the overwhelming majority of people do not become sick or do not die .Thus the effect is nihil .
