Below is a very important report which I ask you to please share on your social media accounts.
FOX NEWS REPORTS: A Texas mayor has criticized the state’s face mask requirement, telling Fox News Tuesday that elected officials should call on people’s “higher nature instead of trying to exercise the authority we don’t have that is remaining unchecked in many municipalities and states.”
“People are trying to do the right thing, and the fact of the matter is, whether we have a law in place or not, people are going to continue to do what they are trying to do,” Midland Mayor Patrick Payton told “America’s Newsroom.”
Payton added that“authority needs to be checked before it runs rampant and we become comfortable in being overrun in our civil liberties.”
Last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott mandated the wearing of face coverings in public in all Texas counties with 20 or more confirmed COVID-19 cases, following record increases in infections in the state.
“It’s really not a message of no face mask,” Payton told Sandra Smith Tuesday. “It’s a message of how you communicate that and how you enforce that quite simply.
DML: My take on this is very simple. People have been wearing masks for months (unless they were protesting (aka rioting) in the streets). The masks have not been proven effective in stopping the spread. In my opinion, all they do is limit the flow of speech, and cause people to fear the unknown. I have not worn a mask even once. I will not visit a store that requires me to wear a mask, I just spend my money elsewhere.
People will see me go “maskless” and make a face. For example, the woman out walking her dogs this morning looked at me like I was an axe murderer. Meanwhile, I await the report which highlights the risks associated with wearing a mask while exercising, walking long distances, and so on. Get ready, it’s coming, and the lawsuits will pile up.
With opening cities across the country like we have in recent weeks, smart citizens had to expect the cases of COVID-19 would increase in the same way car accidents have increased now that more cars are on the road, and in the same way crime has increased with more people outside. These are factors of daily life, but when elected officials are forced to give answers that don’t exist they become desperate to avoid negative headlines. Meaning, nobody has a proven answer as to how COVID can be stopped completely. Personally, I think it’s like trying to stop the tide from hitting the sand. Much like the common cold, we as people are not going to stop COVID from spreading, and so we shouldn’t stop people from living. Fact is, COVID doesn’t kill very many people who get it, especially when those people are younger than 65 and don’t have a preexisting condition of some kind.
So without answers, politicians like Gov. Abbott panic. They force people to wear a mask without any data suggesting this will resolve the issue. Instead of placing a stupid mandate to wear a useless mask that most people wear incorrectly, the governor of Texas should have allowed the situation to play itself out. Allow the immune system to do its job, permit the spread to burn out. This is what God had in mind when he created the human body.
Instead of being smart, Abbott took the path of a dumb liberal… he overreacted. Abbot looks weak, his leadership is no better than Cuomo’s failed efforts. This may help me if and when I am debating him on stage in 2024, but right now it hurts me as I watch my fellow countrymen walk around like a bunch of clueless cattle headed for slaughter. Your liberties are being killed thanks to weak politicians on both sides of the aisle. Until more people stand up and burn their masks like Black Lives Matters burns the American flag, we’ll be looking like rookie surgeons who can’t find their ass with both hands.
