Uh, do these people think JFK junior would agree with anything they support? Wasn't he a pretty liberal Democrat?

As was his dad... the exact kind of liberals they hate.

But MAYBE JUST MAYBE THEY WILL ELIMINATE CRITICAL RACE THEORY FROM SCHOOLS

This guy thinks it's important

Oh that IS the best part

Lots of talk online about Kobe Bryant and Robin Williams

I trust that soon we will stop talking about such people online, just as we don't talk about mentally ill people on public street corners so much.

The mentally I'll don't really mind people talking about them if it helps raise awareness and dispel ignorance.

Since we’re far enough removed from some of the many “conspiracy theories” that turned out to be true.  I think this really applies.

I'm confused:

Feb/march 2020:  Don't wear masks
April 2020 to Jan 2022:  Don't anywhere without a mask
Dec 2021 to Feb 2022:  Get your booster or you're effed.
March 2022:  You don't have to wear a mask

What's changed now?  Like seriously i don't understand someone please explain.  They've scared us the last 2 years to wear a mask now they say "you're good".  WTF???
I queef, therefore I am.

Feb/march 2020:  Don't wear masks
Back in early 2020, they didn't know that much about the disease. Plus, there were concerns about the supply of surgical and N95 masks and wanted to ensure there were enough for medical use. That's why in the very early stages they didn't recommend wearing them.
Quote
April 2020 to Jan 2022:  Don't anywhere without a mask
Yes, because by then they 1) Knew they were effective (even cloth masks provided some protection), and 2) Increased supply meant that they didn't need to reserve them for medical use.
Quote
Dec 2021 to Feb 2022:  Get your booster or you're effed.
Yes. And?

Covid is still a relatively new disease. Vaccines are safe and effective, but we're still learning about how well the protect long-term. Getting double vaxed does offer protection... a booster simply offers MORE protection.
Quote
March 2022:  You don't have to wear a mask
Yes, that's partly because there were enough people who were smart enough to, you know, actually get vaccinated AND get the booster. This has caused both cases in general, and hospitalizations due to covid to drop..

It should also be noted that the cancellation of mask mandates is probably based as much on politics as it is on science. Cases have dropped significantly since the recent omicron spike, but they are still higher than they were back in mid-2021, when the Delta variant was causing all sorts of problems. There are epidemiologists who think we should maintain mask mandates at least for a few more days (until they know for sure that cases aren't going to start increasing following the relaxation of vaccination rules.)

If people were smart, they would continue to support mask mandates. (They are cheap, they are effective, and they do not cause economic disruptions like lockdowns do.) But, as the documentary Men in Black stated... "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals". Between the covidiots and a general misunderstanding of science by even well-meaning people, things like mask mandates are falling out of favor.

What i bolded is total nonsense.  What is not bolded is the true reason.  Our gov was sending masks to China and procuring masks for our healthcare workers while telling us we didn't need them.  Why would certain people need them but not us?  Not even as a precaution until they found out more about the virus?  SARS viruses aren't new, they knew what they were doing.  They didn't want a run on N95's.  Thanks liars!

Yes we know this, thanks doc!  Liars didn't have to lie anymore.

Yes this is common knowledge.

Quote
Yes. And?

And i'm asking why hospitals were getting rammed 2 months ago but now we can take off masks?  I'm not asking for your speculation, I'm asking for the government's scientific evidence that they're using as their reasoning for this policy.  Maybe it's the weather, or more boosters, or politics, or the virus has mutated again, or a combo.

Don't worry doc, despite your stereotypes about people who have major ethical concerns with abortion I'm a fairly reasonable person and I believe in science and am therefore vaccinated.  I'm also not religious in any way, despite your prior assumptions.

I also don't associate myself with conservatives, or liberals.  My ideology is to be an independently thinking person with an open mind that has a healthy skepticism of everything we hear, read, and are told (also known as critical thinking), and take all the seemingly reliable information from all sources and viewpoints and use our brains to make up our own minds.  Therefore I don't blindly follow political parties, ideologies, Donald Trumps, Dr Trudeau and Dr Tams, governments, police, teachers, professors, talk-show hosts, celebrities, Facebook memes, or anyone/anything else.  But i do trust my doctor because they're hella smart and i've known them a long time.
