To Mask or Not to Mask
Pennsylvania House GOP ^ | 2 July A.D. 2020 | Rep. Mike Jones

Posted on 07/02/2020 12:16:11 PM PDT by lightman

I am not opposed to an individual choosing to wear or not wear a mask (there are legitimate arguments and concerns on both sides of the issue) or a business choosing to require or not require them. I am opposed to overreaching “mandates” from unelected bureaucrats who think they should dictate to people and businesses how they live and operate.

This is a democracy not a dictatorship. The government answers to you, not the other way around. As such, in these unprecedented times of government abuse of power, I encourage you to make the decisions you feel are appropriate for you and your family.

Freedom is not free. Stand up for your freedom and liberty that so many fought and died for. Do not dishonor them by living in fear of toothless lions in Harrisburg.

The cops stand around watching, or are no where to be seen during this coast to coast looting, arson, vandalism, blocking traffic etc, but if *YOU* don’t wear a mask after being ordered to, you’ll catch hell.

Would be nice if the whole GOP caucus put out a statement urging civil disobedience.

Too much to hope for, I know.

No 1984 submission masks for me..PERIOD. If a business requires it, I don't go. Haven't been to Costco in months and likely won't return at all.

An exception was taking the kid to the orthodontist - which is a legit reason.

“It is illegal in the United States to sell, offer for sale or promote via any means that touches interstate commerce (which would include any communications form that crosses a state line) any drug or device intended to treat, prevent or cure any disease or disorder of the human body without proof in the form of random clinical trials which are then submitted and analyzed by the FDA. This is controlled under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (Title 21 USC.) The government goes after sellers of supplements and devices on this basis all the time. The law is crystal clear in this regard; both safety and efficacy must be scientifically proved, reviewed and then formally approved by the FDA.

There is NO record established by said Random Clinical Trials (RCTs) in over one hundred years, including those performed in the last 20 years, that establishes statistically-significant effectiveness of face coverings for the prevention of transmission of ILI. Exactly zero science supports such a claim.

As a direct result of the lack of such evidence the FDA has never issued an approval for any facial covering intended to be used in the general population for the suppression of any illness, including but not limited to Covid-19. In fact I suspect no such approval has ever been sought, otherwise someone would have tried to make money on a “flu mask”, making such a medical claim, in previous years.

It is therefore UNLAWFUL under United States Law for any seller to advertise, market, sell, vend or represent that any facial covering in fact does or will prevent, treat or cure any transmissible disease whatsoever as exactly zero said devices when used by the general population have ever been certified and approved for said use. THIS IS FEDERAL LAW (TITLE 21) AND IS NOT A SUGGESTION.

This is why every package of N95 masks at the Home Deport (and elsewhere) has the clear statement on the “use document” that comes with it which states it does not prevent the transmission of any disease.

To not so-state would be a violation of federal law.

It is thus likewise impermissible for any element of a State or Local Government to mandate the use of a device that is not FDA approved for such a purpose since it is flatly against the law to recommend or so state that an unapproved drug or device is safe or effective to cure, treat or prevent any disease.

Such a government entity is in fact mandating a direct violation of United States Federal Law and committing said violation itself through promotion of said use.”

Do the controllers care about law?

A lot of the GOP encouraged businesses to open up ahead of the Governor’s coloring book schedule.

Some businesses have been hit with hefty fines, like Taste of Sicily in Palmyra and the two Round the Clock Diners in York.

This plannedemic nonsense has made me realize that at the core I am VERY libertarian.

Rush’s guest host today was talking about the Freedom Foundation filing a lawsuit against the mask mandate in Washington State claiming it was a form of forced speech.

I’ve already written asking them to file the same lawsuit against Wolf.

I said as the protests started to my wife that once this is over and the left overplays it as they always do the media will go back to this flu strain again and demand we close the country , scare people into wearing masks ewtc. I was 100% correct.
If Dementia Joe wins the flu strain suddenly goes away and the media will say Biden cured, the great come back form the economy, people are getting jobs, unemployment down, GDP up etc etc.
So predictable.

I say we keep Columbus Day, but explain to everyone that he identified as a black man. Then all will be OK
