Requiring Masking

6/29/21 AP:
"Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine."
There is no reason for the government to resume masking for the vaccinated.   If you really do not want to be vaccinated, for reasons good or bad, "your body, your choice." The rest of us are pretty much safe.  The vaccinated have more to fear from a traffic accident.

If you are suffering Karen-itis and want everyone back in masks because some people are not convinced that they need it, you are not concerned about anyone but what you think are the stupids.


  1. wherever you got your quote from:

    It is a lie.

    A significant number of "vaccinated" people are getting "Breakthrough infections" and a bout 1/3 of them seem to die from covid

  2. I think your comment is premature. There is preliminary evidence that vaccinated people can develop high viral loads in their noses, even though they have no symptoms. That can result in transmission to others. Some people cannot be vaccinated, including all kids. Others cannot develop immunity - such as a friend who is immunosuppressed due to a solid organ transplant.

    So I'll wear a mask until the evidence becomes more clear - just to protect others.

    Frankly, resistance to mask wear seems like the dumbest of all the fights for those of us on the right to pick. Mask wear is far less burdensome than shutting down travel, or shutting down stores, or all the other much tougher methods used by some governors.

    And, while we wish everyone who could will get vaxxed, it ain't happening. And those folks are Petri dishes for new variants, which could even be a higher risk to the vaccinated.

    1. The effectiveness of masking, especially cloth masks is not strong.

  3. Oh, but the overlords were so cunning last year. The mask on somebody else is for YOUR protection, not his. This means a naked mouth walking down the street towards you is an act of aggression towards you, an aggressiveness and offensiveness not matched in Wokeness even by a naked man in a locker room full of early teen girls.
    As someone wrote last fall, it is harder to unscare people than it is to scare them in the first place.
