Last week, my county mayor mandated masks. He was crucified on social media and reversed his decision less than an hour later.

He made a promise on Sunday that he would not mandate masks.  Today, he flip-flopped again and has now given a mask mandate.

I have no respect for a wishy-washy politician who so easily goes back on his word.  He can count on me not voting for him again.

It became evident after not too long that the whole thing has been politicized. It's not about health. It's definitely hit our bottom line, though.

I will not comply with a mask mandate. The science doesn't justify it. In fact, mandating masks most likely harms those who are healthy. Which is the vast majority, because Covid isn't as bad as they make it out to be. Even if it was, cloth masks don't block viruses. They block bacteria well, though, meaning you trap all that yuck on the inside for you to rebreathe.

I don't even shop in stores that require masks any more. At first I'd just put one on to get in the door, and nobody would say boo after that. But recently those officious types follow me around and nag. Fine, I'll spend my money elsewhere.

I'm even considering cutting back my 2nd job to 0 hours until the whole thing blows over (around the 2nd week of November, I'm guessing) because employees have to wear them. I need the money, but I'll just pick up more hours at my 3rd job.

I usually do seasonal work at a local pumpkin patch, which as of now is going to make employees wear masks. With 1.5 months to go, there's some time for them to change that. We'll see.

My wife does gig work, and everything this spring shut down. It was going to be a good season, extending later than usual. But alas... It was going to be busy enough that there was a chance for me to get called in for extra help.

Anyway, it's extremely frustrating. A blip on the radar, and everyone is cowering in fear and handing over control to flip-flopping fools.

My county school board had a special meeting last week to talk about delaying the start of school.  It was overwhelmingly voted to start school on Aug. 3 as planned but giving parents the opportunity to sign up for virtual classes.  We had a big jump in available technology that would make this work just like being in school for those hours.

Well, guess what?  They have been saying in the news that we have no children with COVID in TN.  Today, we suddenly have 2,900.  So, the school board is meeting Saturday to AGAIN discuss delaying the opening of school.  As long as I get paid, I don't care either way.  As an educational assistant, if they go to online classes, there won't be anything for me to do at school anyway.

i was supposed to work for the Census Bureau this summer.  They kept moving the training back several times now.  I wanted the job for the summer but didn't really want to commit to two months during school which is what I will have now.  I am waiting to see what the school board decides before I notify them if I don't want the job now.  If school is delayed, then I will go ahead just because I am bored.  Building guitars is fun as a hobby, but it seems that my days don't change much and I just wish I had something to do.  Of course, IF I can get these guitars I am working on completed, then I could start thinking about working on a new Big Chris album.  I wonder if Dale Thompson would want to do some blues?

YES!  That would be great.  Thumbs Up

For the record, I was joking about Dale.  I don't think we would be lyrically on the same page.

Our school year has now been shifted back two weeks and we will go to a hybrid model where students will attend school two days and be online for two days.  Once we start, this won't affect me as they are letting special ed. come to school 4 days a week.  Ummm.....my kids aren't mentally able to wear the masks all day.  We have so many that we cannot socially distance, and most of them have boundary issues where keeping them 6 feet apart won't happen either.  So, I guess the virus can't infect special needs kids?

My dad and I had to make a special, hour-long trip to Springfield Friday for a COVID test prior to my Monday procedure.  That's just a minor illustration of how deeply-rooted this craziness has spread.  Rolling Eyes

I'm more concerned about so many new pwople here who tested positive on the virus.
Lots of people here don't take the social distances anymore.
I hope people here care for other people and do what the governement told us to do.

My wife has a lady in HR test positive this week.  She does have symptoms.  We saw her at a restaurant two weeks ago and neither she nor we were wearing masks.  I kinda want to get tested, and my wife says she won't unless she is showing symptoms.

I wouldn't.  If I start showing symptoms then I'll start doing what I normally do when I start to feel sick:  Nyquil regimen.

We don't have to test.  Their company identified the wrong lady.  They got the first name right, anyway.  So, we're good.  I still only know one person personally that had the virus.

Glad you and Holly don't have to test.
It seems not very nice when they test you.

Fortunately, they are now doing a throat culture for that locally.  That would have to be better than having those sticks shoved way up your nose!

I've been so busy I haven't had time to check in....we've had a big spike in cases, but still very few hospitalizations or deaths. The news made a big deal out of a man in his 90's and a woman over 100 that supposedly died from it. Hello, they were very elderly and could have died at any minute from anything.

Y'all obviously don't go to an ENT. They regularly do those types of swabs to check for any sinus infections.

I saw the same ENT for many, many years for my allergy shots.  Even when I had surgery for a deviated septum, I have never had anything shoved that far up my nose.  With the COVID test, they actually scrap the layer that covers your brain.  That's deep!

Throat swabs are pretty standard with the flu and sinus infections.  With a sinus infection, though, most ENT or standard doctors can listen to you describe your mucus discharge colors and look in your sinus cavities and make a diagnosis without a swab.
