Listen, I thought you commenters here and some of the guys on Unz Review threads were just joking. I don't "do" current events, so I wouldn't have read anything about this, had I decided to look into your (I believe one of Mr. Smith''s) comments some more.
It's been at least since 6 months since I first stated at my workplace that they are doubling down on this stupidity. Nobody wants to admit he's wrong. We're all like that. I! GET! THAT! [/Tucker, and more from him tomorrow] The voluntary donning by people at big risk is one thing, but this face diapers for everyone business was stupid to begin. The "experts" forcing this stupidity on us have been proven wrong before. Often times it's obvious that they've been wrong, as they've reversed themselves on their recommendations. "Well, you said this last month, and now you say the opposite, so you were wrong AT LEAST once."
Rather than admit they've been wrong about these face diapers being important in stopping the Kung Flu (and without even worrying about the horrible effects on a normal society either, BTW), they have been doubling down. "Yeah, wearing one of them, as we've recommended for most of a year, doesn't cut it. Let's go to 2. If that doesn't eliminate the Kung Flu in this Decade [pronounced with an accent on the 2nd syllable, JF Kennedy-style], then we'll got to 3, 4, I don't know. The sky's the limit, and plenty of Chinese manufacturers are all geared up, making high-quality face masks - I mean, Quality is Job One over there, right?
It's annoying enough, and likely unhealthful, to take in Oxygen through one layer of this resistance, just living, much less exercising hard. Now what, we've got one pressure drop through the first mask, then some mixing with the exhaled CO2 in the spaces in between, then another pressure drop through the inside mask.? It'd be great for heat insulating for those living in Antarctica, don't get me wrong. Let the Antarcticans wear 5 mask layers if it helps. For good breathing, though, well, good luck with all that, Fauci. I hope it sends you to the hospital to be intubated, you dumb shit.
This stupidity wouldn't bother me so much if Big Biz and Government were not enforcing mandatory requirements on us. Big Biz does stupid things. Government does stupid things. That's nothing new. We used to laugh at that. Now, though, they are having the laugh, because the entire Establishment has been infiltrated by the ctrl-left and things have gotten to the point where they can makes us do stupid shit. What do they tell you about the old East Bloc Commies? It wasn't, and it isn't now, all about stupid notions of "the good of the many" or punishment. It's about the humiliation. They have been able to humiliate most of the country. (You've got that occasional stand-up Governor who says "go fuck yourself!" to the President.) Making the average Joe do stupid things just gets these people off, I believe.
