    To all the Constitutional rights nutjobs...

    1. will one of you please tell me why it is Constitutional to impose upon a woman to wear a top, and why it is Unconstitutional to impose upon someone to wear a mask? This should be tried in the Supreme Court ASAP to stop the nonsense.

    2. will one of you please tell met why it is Constitutional to impose a ban on cigarettes as the gas pump due to public safety, and why it is Unconstitutional to impose upon someone to wear a mask due to public safety?

    3,4,5,6...

    I must be getting old or something, because the sheer stupidity veiled as "rights and liberties" these days is astounding. Truly astounding; all the while "real" rights to freedom of speech, beliefs, etc are being handcuffed by the thought police and there is no more room for debate, just diatribe. Amazing and disconcerting to see...

    They cancelled the softball in our town for my girls forever ago. Boys Little league didn't and whenever I drive by the fields, I see what you did in your town. It's insane. Even if they hadn't cancelled softball, I'm not sure I would have let my kids play. Definitely not if they weren't going to be taking any precautions, but even if they had, it's a stretch.

    If someone doesn't wear a mask because of infringement rights, then how about my infringement rights to live? LSCII, you know what I am saying, you're with the program.

    Jerome Powell and the fed keep printing money to pump the market so it doesn't completely meltdown during the pandemic while the government gives $1200 to everyone to keep families from starving in the meanwhile. US currency is completely fake and meaningless. The economy itself isn't going to completely plunge into a depression any time soon, but inflation is pretty much assured.

    It means that we are going to saddle the next generation with massive debt equivalent to a small home mortgage but without any true value creation - it's like credit card debt....., create a wave of inflation that will destroy purchasing power for the lower and middle class and push them into sustenance living, and possibly remove the USD as the benchmark currency for international trade.

    The first 2 are relatively minor all things considered... if the USD is no longer the benchmark for international trade, in 12 months people will be burning USD like in the 30's the Wermacht bunds for heat.

    The USD became the universal international currency benchmark post WWD and with the Marshall Plan. That is the same playbook China is trying to run with the Silk Road program. It's a major power play to displace the USD as the reference international currency and in doing so kill the ability for the treasury to print USD at low interest rate (as all major raw materials are currently indexed to the USD making it low risk to buy and sell USD denominated assets.) Would be Bretton Woods x infinity in terms of impact...

    This is a legitimate dilemma

    There are definitely millions who need the $1200 stimulus and there are millions who will say free money.

    :dunno:

    Unfortunately there are too many STUPID people in charge of this country that don't care enough to bother doing the right thing. This county is lead by dangerous fools.

    Masks May Reduce Viral Dose, Some Experts Say

    Different kinds of masks “block virus to a different degree, but they all block the virus from getting in,” said Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious disease physician at the University of California, San Francisco. If any virus particles do breach these barriers, she said, the disease might still be milder.

    Literally the only people I see without masks these days are younger dudes. Something wrong in how we’re raising our boys.

    Oh, and schools are preparing to open up across the state.

    depends on where you live. Common sense. wear a mask when indoors with alot of people. Especially if you are there for long periods of time and if you are close and talking with someone.
    Outside. another story. I stay away from people when outside. So you will never see me wearing one outside. I also dont come up and strike a conversation with random people without wearing a mask.
    The problem i see is when people start talking with people so close to each other without masks. Just random conversations. strangers. I see it all day at work.

    Here in Toronto, 90% uses masks, you have to if you want to go into stores... problem is, most people use maks below the nose...

    The condo building where I live has a mandated masks or face covering rule for inside the building, 2 per elevator, unless your part of the same household for social distancing... still some younger couples with kids wont wear them.

    The vast majority are wearing them around here - it’s kind of what makes those who don’t so noticeable.

    Basketball courts are packed - and dudes out running. They just don’t think/care about others

    "Lockdowns are proven to do nothing"
    Some people really believe anything they are fed with, in this day and age... it's just unbelievable that someone wouldn't at least cross reference it for some "validation"

    If we read outside our comfort zone...we might actually find out what's out there...

    In New Brunswick, the mandate is you need to wear a mask if social distancing isn't possible, but they are not (at least yet) mandatory except for businesses which have mandated them. However, we probably locked down the borders more than any other jurisdiction in North America, so infection sources are pretty contained. We are still getting some new cases, but every one gets tied back to travel - with a 14 day quarantine for travelers it means spread is basically nothing. 6 TFW's (Temporary Foreign Workers) tested positive last week, all were in their quarantine and tested positive on their 10 day test.

    Folks are pretty good at the distancing, although the basketball courts are also full. But with no community spread here, maybe that's not an alarming thing.

    Funniest thing I see though, is people distancing on sidewalks - sometimes I'll be out for a run and an oncoming pedestrian will go on the road when I'm 100 yards away so that they can get their 6 feet when I pass.

    I'd put money on it though that we'll be in mandatory indoor masks by the time October comes around.
