    Default Only N95+ masks truly block the virus

    Based on past studies long before covid, and now even more in the past few years - it has been shown that regular cloth masks do very very little to help or block the virus.

    Based on science alone and the size of the vaccine, you need a mask that can block down to a certain micron level.

    The size of covid is approximately .06 microns. The material in the regular cloth masks simply don't really block down to that level. You need N95 and above rated masks. Maybe wearing 2 or 3 cloth masks might help more and block closer, but then you can't breathe right.

    Anyway, and now Biden is complaining about people wearing masks - and yet we all know they are not a solution.

    Joe Biden Angry One Third of Americans Are Not Wearing Masks During Pandemic

    President Joe Biden complained that Americans had stopped wearing masks during the coronavirus pandemic, promising to send better-fitting masks to Americans for free.

    “About one-third of Americans report they don’t wear a mask at all,” Biden noted disappointedly.

    The president spoke about masking during a speech on his video set across the street from the White House on the ongoing battle against the coronavirus.

    “I think it’s part of your patriotic duty,” he said about mask-wearing although he admitted, “it’s not that comfortable” and “it’s a pain in the neck” to wear them.

    During his speech, he lifted up his mask to demonstrate that masks should be worn tightly over the face and completely cover the nose.

    All of the FAUCI, CDC, WHO, and Typical Democrat Fabricators who are ALL MAKING MILLIONS on the backs of AMERICAN Fears...(Too bad I never invested in FACE MASKS) that still have millions of Uneducated, Perpetually Afraid Americans hiding within their MASKS...even after people like FAUCI admitted MASKS DON'T WORK....before he changed his mind and said...MASKS DO WORK.

    I'm the kind that follows the actual versus the junk science. If I pit something between myself and what I don't want to inhale, a piece of paper or even my hand is more effective than nothing.

    There's a happy medium and some common sense, logic and scientific fact lost somewhere in the middle between ineffective and blind faith.

    Wished I'd have invested in masks as well. Especially since every time Fauci and the Admin give the "all clear" everyone throws them away then has to buy new ones 3 days later when the aforementioned goes "wait a minute..."

    I have worn a mask only once since getting off the airplane coming home from Alaska first week of August. It was at my dermatologist's office. I decided that day if a mask is required I just won't go there.

    Got home last night from an event in Phoenix that had over 3,000 people and not one person had a mask on for entire weekend.

    I had covid in October and have antibodies which is just as good as the vaccine in helping with future infections and symptoms.

    It stops when we decide to say "No More".

    No way in hell I go certain places without a good mask. Some places have mass crowds in NY and folks that may not exactly take better care of themselves. Same as any medical places that may have any patients. But most places no need.

    Big difference though, Carter was at least a good man. Carter tried to be a good man. He was a horrific president but a good man. Biden is neither a good man nor a good president and clearly fancies himself the best of both.

    Agreed. I still like Jimmy Carter. I just don't want him in charge of anything more important than Habitats for Humanity.

    I never worried before about catching the flu. Just assumed I would deal with symptoms and go on with life. Just like I did when I got covid. I feel I have a good immune system. If I didn't I might think differently.

    On the rare occasion I wear a mask, I wear an N95. It's not worth arguing about to go into my granddaughter's elementary school or Walgreens.

    As far as nasty people go, I think of a lot of places to wear protective gear pre-China flu. It didn't take a Chinese covid factory to convince me there are some filthy-ass dirtbags out there. Wal Mart comes to mind.

    I practiced social distancing before politicians made it popular

    No disagreement. Just the fatalistic mindset behind each proclamation.

    I don't like the way things are "mandated" and it pisses me off. But I would likely be wearing a mask in certain environments anyway, they just now made folks not want to ever wear them due to the very mandates. But certain places I want one myself, like a hospital or doctors office or anywhere that has a higher chance of someone infected possibly being around. And places I must go to that require them, same as I feel mostly - just pick my battles and wearing a mask for a few moments isn't a huge deal to me in order to get what I need/want.

    I just need look inside almost any Walmart to know the protecting myself is more warranted when surrounded by knuckleheads who probably haven't bathed in a month let alone take precautions for their health and that of others.

    And man am I glad I'm not surrounded by folks like we see in China, passing around and buying filthy road kill to cook for the next meal.
