    Covid-19 miscellany

    Starting this thread for more general covid posts, especially as an alternative to the "The Virus - Are You Affected?" thread to hopefully keep that one more about our personal impacts.

    I'll start with this surreal video, where I learned that masks are for child molesters.

    I consider anti-maskers to be slightly more evolved than pond scum, but that's really about it. When you refuse to wear a mask around others, you are saying to them that their life dosn't matter.

    Wearing a mask could save your own life!

    Wearing a Mask May Reduce How Sick You Get from COVID-19

    Step right up and get your mini-dose of COVID-19 virus. Just like a vaccine, it will cause your body to produce the full immune system response, replete with antibodies that will keep you from getting terminally ill when you pick up a mega-dose of the virus at your next Trump rally.

    In Indonesia they've found a way to let the punishment fit the crime.

    I keep noting that these antimaskers and crazy shit they are saying are mostly women.
    I mean there are some men but they are in "I don't care" category, women on the other hand have theories why masks are actually bad.

    Missouri GOP Governor Candidate Claims Wearing Mask Is ‘Demonic Ritual’ | Michael Stone at Progressive Secular Humanist at Patheos Nonreligious
    Satanic Panic: Former Missouri GOP Governor candidate and “warrior for Christ” Saundra McDowel claims that wearing a mask to protect against COVID-19 is really “part of a demonic ritual to get rid of our individual God-given rights.”
    She wrote in her Facebook page:
    I’m not afraid to take a stand!! Are you??

    I walked in Walmart tonight without a mask ... and I refuse to wear a mask anywhere I go from NOW ON unless I choose to! That’s my right... as it is yours!!

    But really.... this is not about masks... masks are just a symbol of deception and oppression. Its compliance training for what’s to come. It’s about control and instilling fear in America. Fear is not of the Lord, but of the enemy. Despair is the absence of faith! This is all part of a demonic ritual to get rid of our individual God-given rights. BLM just said it... it’s a spiritual battle... they are chanting to dead spirits practicing witchcraft. Our bodies... our faces... are created in the image of God. We shall not veil our faces spiritually or practically. 2 Corinthians 3:13-16

    Our country was founded on freedom and liberty for all... and God was the author of our nation and that freedom and liberty. Not people! God! Their faith in God!! Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty!! 2 Corinthians 3:17
    Some more of this absurdity:
    Recently a Michigan Christian school claimed that a mask mandate means “Satan wins,” and has fired a teacher for raising concerns about a lack of masks in classrooms.

    Fox News Host Jeanine Pirro claims that face masks are actually part of a plot to “dehumanize” and “frighten people.”

    And GOP Activist DeAnna Lorraine claims “God does not want us wearing masks” to stop the spread of COVID-19.

    It's only anecdotal but in my small city, it's almost always white males who don't wear masks, especially older white males. I guess it's not macho to wear a mask.

    Since those who don't wear a mask are now in the minority here, they don't stir up any trouble. When I see one in the grocery store, which is rare, I just make sure to keep my distance.

    I am talking about batshit crazy, not about noncompliance. When CNN talks about batshit crazy they always show bunch of batshit crazy women.

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    Around here the worst non-compliance I've seen has been from blacks. In a recent shopping trip all of the pulled down masks were black and most of the dick-nosers were non-white. However, surprisingly the Hispanic market we often visit had 100% compliance.
