I just don't understand the completely irrational fear people have of this virus. Its not just that they're misinformed or ignorant, its like they love the drama and they crave a crisis to fill a hole in their mundane lives. How have they been living all these years if they're this fragile and fearful? I don't think they really want things to be normal again.
Then you have the people who aren't really afraid but are mindlessly obedient. The ones who put a mask on to walk 5 steps to the door because that's what they're told to do. If mankind had been this weak, fearful and stupid in ancient times we would've been extinct thousands of years ago.

Throughout the history of civilization, mankind being in an obedient, subservient state is actually the normal state of things. Freedom, the free man and woman, is but a blip on the timeline of men.

Here we go with this shit Roll Eyes

I tried to wear an N95 once on the job and after an hour or two I felt like I was slowly suffocating. Confused

I WILL NOT WEAR THIS. Mad

And I wore military gas masks for hours and hours in the Army and ANG so it's not that I have a problem.

Four former Biden COVID advisers urge administration to recommend ALL Americans wear N95 masks to protect against explosion of 'super-covid'

quote:

A memo was sent to the White House signed by a dozen health and safety experts, including four members of Biden's transition team coronavirus board

They called on the CDC and OSHA to 'recommend and require the use of respiratory protection, such as N95s' for all Americans

Just days ago, the CDC advised against using N95 masks, which protect against small virus particles, outside of healthcare settings due to a shortage

The signatories argue that there are millions of N95s 'sitting in warehouses' available for use among the general public

It comes as more cases of the new variants from the UK, South Africa and Brazil continue to be identified cross the country

My response to this is exactly the same as my response to O'Biden wet dream gun control push...I'm not going to comply with any of it. And if I read one more retarded story from these morons in the media about the 'mutant' virus or the 'super-covid' virus I'm going to lose it. These people are completely blatant in their narrative and agenda at this point, yet the sheep just go about milling around and cowering to tyrant decrees. It's just sickening.

I’d consider it under conditions like: it comes out of the WH operating budget with no increase in fees or taxes, can also be funded by budgets of schools, universities and DMV under same constraints. Must be made by American company in the USA like 3M.

Wish is to basically say I won’t willingly comply.

I believe, that since WWII, we've always had a "the Boogie Man coming to get us" fear among the American population.

First Russians, then Cubans, then Terrorists and now Covid-19.

Can't we just color our current masks white and call it a day?

And why stop at N95? Why not N97?

i think some of you guys just need to move on. Just do your thing. being fixated on this mask thing is making you guys look like the people you despise. being obsessed cannot be good for you. it is pretty obvious it is having a negative affect on you. it is just a handful of you that cannot move past this point in time. life has and needs to move on. this too will pass.

Now it's 3 shots and 2 masks - and the mask wearing is required even after everyone is vaccinated.

Next it will be 3 masks and weekly injections for life Roll Eyes

Third shot may be needed to combat new coronavirus variants, Bill Gates says

A third dose of coronavirus vaccine may be needed to prevent serious cases of new variants of the disease, Bill Gates said Tuesday. The billionaire philanthropist's comments come amid to the growing concern that current vaccines are less effective against the South African and Brazilian variants.

"The discussion now is do we just need to get a super high coverage of the current vaccine, or do we need a third dose that's just the same, or do we need a modified vaccine?" Gates told "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell.

"All five of the companies that have U.S. vaccines are looking at making that modification and adding that in so that people who've already had two shots might need to get a third shot," he said. "I think it's reasonably likely that we will have a tuned vaccine just to make absolutely sure that as these variants hit the U.S. that they're not escaping from vaccine protection."

Gates is funding studies in South Africa to determine whether the AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax vaccines were as effective against the more contagious variant.

"AstraZeneca in particular has a challenge with the variant. And the other two, Johnson & Johnson and Novavax, are slightly less effective, but still effective enough that we absolutely should get them out as fast as we can while we study this idea of tuning the vaccine," Gates said.

If the coronavirus is not eradicated, he said, additional shots may be necessary in the future. "Probably not yearly, but as long as it's out there, we want as many Americans as possible not to be spreading it to each other," he said.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former head of the Food and Drug Administration, told CBS News' "Face the Nation" on February 7 that he believed the vaccines currently being distributed in the U.S. would offer "reasonable protection" against the new variants, even if they are less effective against the new strains. Still, he said, it may also be necessary to administer booster shots in the fall.

Doesn’t this just make you feel all safe and protected.
With everybody wearing a mask, your surgeon maybe getting an inferior (counterfeit) mask.
Seems silly that the whole country would be wearing mask made in China where this whole thing started.
Makes one wonder if some of these masks might have a bit of that China Virus embedded.

Yet another prong of the attack on the people in this country. Biden wants federal workers punished for not wearing masks and rewards given to those that get the vaccine in the form of paid leave. He also wants police action taken against non-federal folks for not masking up on federal property; where an agency does not have LEO’s, he wants local police called in to take enforcement action. 1984 gets closer each day with these people.

The punishment for non-compliance is terrible to contemplate. Per the linked article, this punishment actually goes as far as paid administrative leave!

This is harsh and cruel punishment. Probably unconstitutional.

From the text-
“ They should consider banning those employees from the workplace until the disciplinary action is resolved and place the worker on paid administrative leave until the punishment is issued”

The paid leave for noncompliance is to keep from being sued; the “punishment” is the part that should be of real concern. THAT won’t be paid leave I can assure you.

Reports that 1/3rd of the military is refusing vaccination. So in order to convince the peon's to get the vaccine, the commanders are coming up with some "imminent deployment" bullshit to get their numbers up. That'll go over like a turd in a punch bowl. Lying to your subordinates will lose their trust and erode all semblance of discipline. Fucking military leadership now is pathetic.

Thousands of service members are refusing or putting off COVID-19 vaccine
