Masks
Immediately, when the Coronavirus panic exploded, everyone went out and bought every mask of every type they could find and began to hoard them for the coming pandemic disease holocaust. The result was not enough medical masks, (N95 type) for nurses, doctors and other first responders. Like everything else regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, this too became a political football.

The Washington Post published an article yesterday by Margaret Sullivan titled; Tucker Carlson’s latest idiocy on masks is dangerous and hypocritical even by his usual standards. Tucker Carlson, of course, has similar headlines on his show about the 'idiocy' of WaPo and other left wing media commentary and so called news reporting. You're an idiot, no you're and idiot. It's your fault, no its your fault. Childish back and forth name calling and blaming. I'm going to join in for a moment to illuminate a subtle, but important, point in this childish media behavior. This was the first 3 paragraphs in the WaPo piece condemning Tucker Carlson's take on 'masks'. I took a walk to Central Park on Monday, and on the way, I noticed a toddler being wheeled in a stroller, wearing what looked like a cotton, homemade mask. The mask was pink with white flowers, and fit the tiny face well. The child was peacefully asleep, lulled by the motion and the spring breezes. Here’s what I didn’t do: Pull out my phone and call 911 to report a blatant case of child abuse. Now, lets look at the same 3 paragraphs as other media would (and have) said this: I took a walk to Central Park on Monday, and on the way, I noticed a toddler being wheeled in a stroller, [without] wearing a mask. The child was peacefully asleep, lulled by the motion and the spring breezes. Here’s what [I wanted to] do: Pull out my phone and call 911 to [have the parents arrested for not having their child wear a mask], a blatant case of child abuse. The left wing media (CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, NY Times, etc, pick one) have no problem with this second rendition. Forcing everyone else to wear a mask seems only natural to them. They say make it criminal not to wear a mask (though WaPo, of course, didn't mention that in this article). Then they say it is the right who want legal action for wearing a mask. Not what Tucker literally meant. He shared scientific data and opinion about common sense and those who foist masks on babiesas part of his push back theme FOR science and against political control. He also showed the left's hard handed tactics and threats on those who do not wear masks, even babies on planes! The author did at the end of the article make this statement: If Carlson were really talking about whether it’s necessary for tiny tots in strollers to be wearing masks outdoors, it would be one thing. He might even have a point worth discussing. He was making that exact point! She then followed by asking '...how low he (Carlson) would go ...' Not to worry WaPo, Carlson has a long way to go to get the bottom feeders level where you reside. Whoops, there I am joining the childish rant. Sorry. But, sadly, isn't this where we are now. If both sides say the other is lying, can they both be right? Wrong? We, you, have to decide. Vary your news sources! Truth is, the right wants no legal or bureaucratic action at all. Wear the damn mask if you want. Or, don't wear the damn mask. Your choice. The left want both, legal and bureaucratic control. This country is close to herd immunity now. Less than 1% have a risk of dying from COVID 19. We have 50,000 COVID cases a month.  In a normal year, we have 400,000 flu cases a month during flu season. The flu also kills 1% of the population.  Do we wear masks for the flu? The only reason to fight over this mask thing is that one side wants to maintain control. There can be no other reason. Oh, keep our fellow citizens safe, BS! At this level of immunity, and in life in general, there is no certainty we will not become hurt or ill. Deal with it in the way you deal with every other risk in your life. Take Personal Responsibility! Babylon Bee said it best!
