Biden ran on the fallacy that he would have handled COVID better, and that Trump was wrong, despite all his excuses for why he would handle it better were either already being done or of dubious merit at best. He has promised that on Inauguration day he'll create a mask mandate for 100 days. What we know is:
- This defies science: the bulk of scientific evidence is that Mask don't help. Places like Belguim, Peru, Spain, Italy, all had mask mandates and dramatically underperformed places with none or lackluster mandates that weren't enforced.
- It defies logic: we already had local mandates. Why create a national one for places that aren't having outbreaks to help with places that already have local mandates?
- Why do you think 300+ days into a pandemic that now is the time to enact a mandate? And why do you think that you know you'll only need the mandate for 100 days.
If Biden demands that I wear a Mask for 100 days, in defiance of the science, I will go mask-less or wear cheesecloth for those days. (1)... Belgium had mask mandates and death rates a few times ours. Evidence says they dont help, or are below the noise. Biden is taking politics over science a step too far. (2) If you believe the science says that a national mandate will exceed local ones, and it needs to start 300 days into a pandemic (on inauguration day) and last exactly 100 days, then you are a CNN watching COVIDIOT that doesn't know what political stunts look like. I shouldnt be forced to comply with Political stunts under the First Amendment. (3) This is not legal in a free country. How much fascism is bad... its like saying a little Japanese internment was OK, or a little rape is OK, if it is for a good cause. “It was short and quick” doesn't excuse the acts. And since when is forced marxist conformity under threat of law a “good cause”? (4) Not my President. Democrats got to claim it for 4 years.... now Republicans get to as well, for far more legitimate reasons like equal justice under the law and social justice (equality of outcome). So badfinger can fuck himself in the name of unity... #resist
