I’d throw my mask to the wind in an instant if not for the hassle of a fine. As it stands, I must take a “breather” from mask wearing after 30-minutes and drop it to my chin while driving just to avoid the lightheadedness from adequate oxygen/CO2 exchange. BTW: this isn’t a QAnon thing, his highness Fauci at one time proclaimed mask wearing unnecessary before he flip-flopped. Also, explain Florida. Explain numerous studies that prove masks don’t offer the protection claimed and at the most, MAY be called for when you can’t social distance or are just passing by another person (less than 10-minute contact) — and, wearing masks should be required if you’re feeling unwell or have received a Covid jab. The latter is necessary since it has been suggested by SCIENCE that vaccinated persons may transmit or be prone to acquire Covid despite the jab as stated by the industry, it neither makes you immune nor non-infectious. I’ll wait for SCIENCE to proclaim these people are truly safe to be around, thank you very much. Let’s stick to what has been proven; it’s not necessary to discredit/or divisiveness by name call (QAnon) because you can’t defend an opinion through fact or logic. Oh ya or his opinion does not need to be canceled; Observer, try for once to put forth a cognizant argument.
