Masks - Memory Lane

Do you remember when the mask zealots started ranting at others for not having their mask over their nose, let alone the endorsed segregation for ppl who choose not to wear one. Full compliance......or else.

And if you are going to come on here blathering about "masks stop a bug".....look up all rcts and microns. Plus, why arent you wearing one now? And why does everybody have to join in this weird ritual?

I remember folks with REAL acute, serious illness having to be turned away from getting proper care because beds were all being taken by cavalier smartass jackasses who are smarter than health clinicians.

I remember my best friend dying because of ignorant "No Mask" and "No Vax" morons. Many of those same morons ended-up crying, afraid their next breath they struggled for might be the last breath ever. I remember the look of terror.

The morgues, cemetaries, quickly filled with big. bad tough guys, men with smart mouths that eventually went silent.

Have a great life for the sake of someone who would have appreciated having a life.

@gol979 If I thought you are truly sincere and looking for hard copy evidence to support your "Anti-precaustions" posturing I would make a better effort to provide a clearer, informed response. You have already challenged my personal integrity so your motives here are crystal clear. Good day sir, enjoy the trolling while you can.

@Grateful4you cant substantiate your own lived experience. Wonder if you are just a propagandist or a fantasist?

@WaryWitchWandering yep. Its hard to believe that all these destructive measures were put in place for a very, very mild virus
We'll be reflecting back on a lot of the covid policies with "I told you so's." Remember how Fauci initially told us the truth about the effectiveness of masks at the beginning of the pandemic? Feb. of 2020, he wrote that store bought masks weren't effective at stopping the spread of viruses. Even advised travellers against wearing them. magic...masks were good. Much later, masks were so good, wearing two was even better.

@MrBrownstone All of the questions 🐑 never ask.
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
@BizSuitStacy Because it would take away their ability to bully. It’s like it was about control.🤔
Riverman2 · 56-60, M
Yep. Makes me think that for some of those people it was more about compliance than it ever was about health.
gol979 · 41-45, M
@Riverman2 its not about health, for sure

When the shit hits the fan and it’s coming soon, people will not believe how they’ve been fooled.

We tried to warn them.
You only r er appear in my feed if your are arguing with or antagonising people. I’m just checking if you do anything else before I hit the big shiny button that - from my point of view - makes you disappear from the universe

@ShellSeeker keep scrolling dear. Dont waste your energy. Just block me
@gol979 With gusto 🫡
gol979 · 41-45, M
@ShellSeeker 👍 have a lovely weekend

Is it just the wind you're shouting to or are you making some kind of point here? Scientific? Medical? Political? Mental health?
Graylight · 46-50, F
@MrBrownstone I also brought up taxes, doctors and schools.

As examples of others imposing their will, but in those examples everything's perfectly acceptable. What is it that makes this one vaccine out a a thousand vaccine so very special?

Not the technology. Been around for decades.
Not the vaccination itself. mRNA is already being formulated into life-saving vaccines of all kinds.
Not the need. 6.5 million deaths, 615 million cases.
Not the use. Public health measure have precedent and law behind them.

So, other than the tears of stalwart patriots who will march into hell and overturn governments for their leader but fear a tiny piece of cloth... I just can't put my finger on it.
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
@Graylight Exactly. Avoided the topic.
Graylight · 46-50, F
@MrBrownstone Oh, is that what passes for reality over on your side? Okay.
CarolinaCrushDaddy · 51-55, M
if people are in Walmart or Lowes, i understand...... but, the ones riding in the car alone with a mask, that just next level paranoia.
gol979 · 41-45, M
@CarolinaCrushDaddy fair enough. I dont agree that they are needed at all, walmart or in a car solo, but it should be a choice....even if masks did do anything good (they dont)
Entwistle · 51-55, M
I still wear a mask when in public. Nothing wrong with doing so.
gol979 · 41-45, M
@Entwistle no there long as it remains a choice
Torsten · 36-40, M
I do remember those people. God they were annoying. Was fun to drive them mad though.
gol979 · 41-45, M
@MrBrownstone @Torsten masks, social distancing and my personal favourite "asymptomatic". They were laughing at us
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
@gol979 Sick when you aren’t sick.🙄
gol979 · 41-45, M
@MrBrownstone yep. Started with propaganda vids of ppl in china just falling over dead (not a single person saw that, pre injection) to no symptom deadliest bug ever. To be fair, it is laughable
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
Yes. I have a list of all mask bullies in my neighborhood. If wearing a mask is not a big deal,why did they stop wearing them.
gol979 · 41-45, M
@MrBrownstone you must have an A1 notepad 😉
gol979 · 41-45, M
@MrBrownstone and yes, why did they stop wearing them?
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
@gol979 I guess it was a big deal.

@gol979 We're well past the point where it was reasonable trying to have a constructive debate with you and the rest of your ilk. You don't want to listen / reason on any opinion that isn't the one of your cult, all you want to do is disseminate populist cr#p propaganda, which will continue to get called out whether you like it or not.
gol979 · 41-45, M
@Elessar so presumably you think masks/face coverings stop virus particles? THought that ppl who didnt cover all their breathing holes were not donning the useless mask correctly? If thats your point i completely disagree. And if it is, i bet you dont wear a mask now?

@HeidiA presumably you had a pop at ppl whose mask was under their nose for this post to illicit that response 😉
