How Would You Feel About A Nationwide Mask Mandate That Forced You To Wear A Mask In Public At All Times?
I think that this headline is going to upset a lot of people, and it should. Personally, I believe that if you want to wear a mask you should be able to wear a mask, but if you don’t want to wear a mask you should not be forced to wear one. And I also believe that we should be respectful of the choices that others have made. I have seen so many instances where a crazed individual has viciously gone after someone else for either wearing or not wearing a mask, and that should not be happening. Why don’t we all just chill out and let people deal with this pandemic however they want to deal with it? To me, that makes a whole lot of sense. Unfortunately, many of our control freak politicians want to micromanage our behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic, and that includes the Democratic candidate for president.
On Thursday, Joe Biden stated that he supports “mandatory mask wearing” in every U.S. state…
Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, called for a nationwide mask mandate on Thursday, drawing a sharp contrast with President Donald Trump, who rarely wears a mask himself and opposes such mandates.
“Every single American should be wearing a mask when they’re outside for the next three months at a minimum,” Biden said at a press appearance in Wilmington, Delaware. “Every governor should mandate mandatory mask wearing. The estimates by the experts are that it will save over 40,000 lives in the next three months. Forty thousand lives, if people act responsibly.”
Biden is suggesting a three month time frame, but three months from now doesn’t even get us to the end of fall.
And if there is going to be a fresh wave of this pandemic, it is likely to peak during the winter.
So in reality Biden will probably still be talking about “mandatory mask wearing” six months from now. In fact, he will undoubtedly want us to keep wearing masks until a vaccine comes out.
