The vast majority of us covers our nose and mouth when we sneeze or cough. It’s virtually universal.

Why do we all do it?

It simply is a matter of courtesy and health. We don’t want to subject someone to our germs.

Those who don’t cover their faces are considered boors, slobs, dorks, boobs, vulgarians, dunces, losers . . . well, you get the idea.

So, it seems quite puzzling that some people are so vehemently opposed to wearing a mask.

Especially during the current pandemic, not only do your sneezes and coughs transmit COVID-19, but even talking, singing, shouting and yes, breathing, can transfer the virus.

So if you agree that covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze is wise, clearly the same rules apply — even more so — when in the midst of the pandemic of a deadly disease.

When you see people protesting against wearing mask, aren’t you tempted to ask, “Didn’t your mother ever teach you common courtesy?”

Yes, President Trump has discouraged mask-wearing, but is he really the best example of how to act?

This is a man who continually spreads lies and insults anyone who disagrees with him.

This is a man who has cheated on three wives, groped women, cheated the IRS, cheated employees, lied about the COVID, lied about the climate, and associated with an assortment of felons and miscreants.

Is that the way you act? Is that the way you want your kids to act? Is he an example you and your family wish to follow?

It has been acknowledged by the medical community that mask-wearing can reduce the spread of a deadly and virulent disease.

Why would anyone be so selfish and unconcerned about others, as to protest against something so simple as wearing a mask?

Yes, the world contains a great number of selfish and stupid people, but why would anyone want to be one of them?

Wear a mask. It’s not hard to save lives — including your own.

“We have this firestorm of coronavirus all across the country,” emergency medicine physician Dr. Leana Wen said. “It’s not one or two hotspots, the entire country is a hotspot of coronavirus infection.”
More than 10.9 million people in the US have been infected with coronavirus, and more than 245,000 people have died, according to data from Johns Hopkins.
At least 1,266 new deaths were reported on Saturday alone.

 

IT CAN SAVE LIVES, SO WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM?

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

  1. Eliminate FICA
  2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
  3. Social Security for all or a reverse income tax
  4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
  5. Salary for attending school
  6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
  7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 
  8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
  9. Federal ownership of all banks
  10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.
