Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday voiced support of mask wearing and social distancing in public, in contrast to President Trump and many conservatives who have portrayed masks as a sign of weakness.

McConnell is about to find out how much power and influence he gave away.

Ps.  Coronavirus particles are about 1 micron across. Water molecules are just under 3 angstroms across; that is 300 times smaller.  Simple cloth stops splashing pee; covid should be easier to stop.

Did Sean Hannity Just Break The Political Divide Over Face Masks?


https://www.forbes.com/sites/sethcohen/2020/05/27/breaking-with-trump-sean-hannity-just-told-a-surprising-truth-about-face-masks/#47c264526679

Breaking with President Trump on the issue of face masks, Fox News commentator Sean Hannity had some stern words for Memorial Day partygoers during his Tuesday evening broadcast. The TV personality’s comments came in response to a viral video of a holiday weekend celebration at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, where individuals were seen without face masks and ignoring social distancing guidelines. 

"Look, I understand these are young people. Experts keep saying over and over they are at [a] much lower risk. But, if they do get this — and again, there's no mask-wearing here that I see, not much at all; I see no social distancing — but if they get the virus and then are in contact with older and more vulnerable Americans that could be a disaster for others," Hannity said.

"That's why, in a short period of time — it's only temporary — if you can't social distance, please wear the mask," the commentator lectured. "Do it for your Mom, your Dad, your Grandma, your Grandpa."

President Donald Trump shared a tweet on Thursday that argued the mandated use of face masks to control the spread of the coronavirus represents a "culture of silence, slavery, and social death."

Better social death than real death.

If you don't like the mask, you are going to hate the ventilator.

Just got back from grocery shopping - had to go to three stores to get what I wanted.
Observations- Love when a store sprays your cart and wipes it down for you. 2 out of 3 I visited did that. The MOST expensive store I went to - did not. Did not like that at all.

Masks- Our state has mandated masks...but interesting observation...out of all the stores I visited...saw only 2 folks without masks. Both of them what I would call "seniors" but more on the younger side, perhaps late 60's...a man and a woman (not together btw) ...they are the demographic that needs to protect themselves the most.
Gave both a wide, wide berth in the stores and I couldn't help to make a hurumph noise when they walked by....and these folks could "afford" the handmade masks being sold all over or the boxed ones available too...

Anyways - I was happy and surprised to see the rest of the folks all masked, even teenagers, middle school kids out with mom (whole family in masks) , grown men and young adults....yay!

I had no problem finding tp and paper towels and bleach. Other things like Lysol spray and Clorox wipes are like rare diamonds....never see them, just big empty shelf spaces.
