>I mean let's take this sudden wave of blue states deciding to lift masking requirements. In just the last three days, California, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, Delaware (yep, President Biden's home state!), New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island have all suddenly announced at least some lifting of masking requirements, with even more likely on the way. Is it just a coincidence that this has happened all at once in the same week -- have blue state governors just discovered polling shifts or something -- or could it be that that bridge to Detroit from Canada is now being blocked by the Freedom Convoy and there's a certain desire on the part of the party currently governing our country (apparently save for the Biden Administration itself!) to, you know, do what's possible to end that situation as quickly as possible and avoid the phenom being fully replicated Stateside?
It might have something to do with covid cases being 1/6th of what they were a few weeks ago, and Dr. Fauci saying we're likely past the pandemic stage.
And I'm sorry but I don't consider having to wear a mask when going out as some giant intrusion on freedom. There are far more important things I'm concerned about.
Frankly I'm tired of people acting like the vaccine (that has been scientifically proven to be far, far safer than the alternative across the board) and having to wear masks is some horrible burden that we should be fighting against. And I'm tired of people who don't know the first thing about the immune system thinking they understand science and policy better than immunologists that have been spent 20+ years studying the immune system.
How dare the government cause me a minor inconvenience for trying to slow something down that has killed close to a million Americans.
