    I don't believe it's clear either way. Here in Arkansas as of a few days ago we had a total of 64,690 cases and 882 deaths from COVID with a statewide mask mandate while our neighbor Oklahoma had 62,040 total cases and 846 deaths without a state mask mandate and OK has nearly 1 million more people than AR. There are some localities in OK that have adopted mask mandates to be fair.

    People point to lower case counts to back up their claims of masks being effective as well but don't include that the CDC has adjusted their recommendations for receiving tests driving down total tests as a whole. At the same time deaths aren't jumping up like was predicted and hospitalizations haven't hit anywhere near predicted.

    At best the arguement that masks are effective is inconclusive. That's without going into how the CDC now considers anyone that has been within 6ft of a COVID positive person WITH or WITHOUT a mask a close contact and recommends they quarantine or the studies that have come out saying that the neck gaiters and maks with vents/flaps are worse than not wearing a mask. OSHA guidelines say that cloth masks all the way up to surgical masks will not protect anyone from airborne infections. You'll need an N95. But Fauci was saying not too long ago that may not be enough and we should wear goggles.

    He's not wrong. And acknowledging stupid ideas as stupid isn't unprofessional. If y'all didn't live in a political echo-chamber, you'd know how ****ing retarded it all is.

    It's funny, he banned DownwardDawg for calling someone a name, but then he turns around and calls another poster stupid. I guess whenever you have access to the ban hammer, you can do whatever you want.

    Awe, no need to edit your original comment, lol.

    I asked her...
    She didn't recognize your name, so I told her that based on your post history, you likely have a Q trimmed into your pubes.
    She just shook her head in disgust and said "Nah, that ain't me".**

    There is no doubt a portion of the left (not sure of the size) that would rather covid ravage this country than it clear up bc that helps Trump.

    Only ignorance could cause someone to miss this.

    I have never seen such love and compassion for our fellow man as I have seen here on this board! I hope this is not the model the rest of the world follows or we will be in another world war in no time at all. Passions are flaring and getting out of control!

    We seem to see the words people write but not the sentiment or the tone or intent in which it was hopefully written. Instead of giving somebody the benefit of doubt, we all rush and crucify the person.

    Yep, I have been guilty as well. I will do my best to improve! But thankfully, I am not in on this current argument.

    It's made a huge difference here too. The timing for when our new case load started dropping jibes exactly with what you would expect from when the mask order came down. Don't try to tell the anti-science people that. Their feelings are way more accurate than actual science.

    If you think this is political then you are the problem.

    If you don't think covid has been politicized, you're an idiot. Sorry, but you are. Doesn't mean covid isn't serious, dangerous, etc, but it most certainly is political also.

    You called out Hacker for not posting later, while talking about the numbers being better... So what should someone think you meant?

    I have nothing to prove to you bud, you have been around on this site since nearly the beginning. I do a lot more for the site than many will ever notice, know, or appreciate and I'm fine with that.

    Wrong. he, dan, and another .. were banned for 1 month after one again turning this thread into a political dogfight... in fact he and dan had previously been banned for a weekend over the same thing.
    Nothing to do with calling anyone a name. and stupid isn't name calling. Unless you are a preschooler or... are just trolling because you didn't like was said. or maybe you were offended because you believe the same.
