This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Needless to say I don't own a mask and have never worn one.
Needless to say you probably live in your mother's basement and have no employment that requires you to leave it.

Thats the type of person who needs triple masking.

Yeah, no reasonable person gets so bent outta shape about someone else not wearing a mask; he got some kinda deep-seated mask issues.

I bet he was born with a caul like the kid in The Shining :/

Yep, all the OCD neurotic weirdos have been indulged by society as a whole and now they can't handle things being returned to the actual normal (fuck their "New Normal").

As an aside, one of my kids was born en caul. It's supposed to be lucky.

Spoiler alert, mask mandates are likely to make a comeback before mid August.

It's all part of the Pillow Prophet's vision that puts Trump back in the White House on August 13, 2021.

Sadly pretty likely. We already know this is completely ineffective at reducing spread in any significant way (and has yet to be shown in actual studies to have any effect at all). But we've already entered the phase where people aren't talking about deaths anymore, we're just talking about "cases."

The pressure is on Florida and Texas to stand against masks and against mandatory vaccinations. Neither De Santis or Abbott really have a spine, but they hopefully perceive that if they bend on these issues they'll break their political careers. If they are able to stand against the manufactured regime-propaganda pressure, ideally other states will be compelled to be defectors too.

And lockdowns.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9813079/LA-restaurants-close-California-coronavirus-hospitalizations-hit-highest-point-months.html

Just to be clear, despite your article and you implying "lockdowns" in relation to LA restaurants, TWO restaurants decided on their own to close here in LA.  And I suspect that was cover for economic issues (restaurants open and close all the time - it's a volatile and difficult business, and we have tens of thousands of restaurants in LA.) So far, no lockdown.

My favorite bar just asked (on a voluntary basis) that unvaccinated customers use the outdoor tables rather than indoor ones.

I do wish we could increase our vaccination rates here. Rather than the conspiracy theory nutters like Spinachcat being the major issue here, it's more often African Americans and Hispanics who are reluctant to get the vaccine. One from distrust of Government, the other from distrust of chemicals in general, mostly.

That post was in reply to FelixGamingX1's "Likely to make a comeback", which I think it's likely that Lockdowns make a comeback.

Yeah, because African-Americans have absolutely no reason at all to distrust experimental injections pushed by the government..... [sarc/off]  ::)

I'm brown, I'm not "reluctant" to get vaccinated (the term itself is more NLP bollocks, implying that if only you could find the right lever, people could be persuaded). I have no interest whatsoever in a therapeutic treatment for the common fucking cold.

Funny, I haven't seen anyone require a hospital admission for a "common fucking cold* but I've seen plenty lately for Covid-19. Your dismissal of reality is foolish and harmful to others.

That statement alone disqualifies your opinion on this issue.  People (especially the old and vulnerable... the same people threatened by Covid19) are hospitalized and die every day from the common cold.  You are so ignorant that it should hurt to be you.

Oh, do shut up, you foolish child. You know nothing of value in this conversation. Go back to your elfgame-talk. A self-limited viral URI (aka, "common cold") is not going to get someone admitted.
