    The disease is real. That's about the extent of factual information we the sheeple get from the media. The rest is bunk.

          I dont believe it is a disease either. A virus like the flu yes, that I believe, as I believe it is real.

            @Ben Drinkin, I still have a large piece of metal waiting for you.. Where you planning on going to the event Mike was talking about in IA? If so I may be able to arrange a ride for it there for you.

            Well, when you are looking at Death, with the virus, like I was, wearing a mask is a very small and sensible thing to do, as a population. FYI, Death is not a Hoax!!!!! You DO NOT want this. Very scary.......My symptoms were mild, stayed isolated at home....But still very scary. Unable to catch a breath.......like a elephant sitting on your chest....Glad to still be here..... Masks and social distancing and testing, tracing is the only thing we can do.....It will run its course, with lots of deaths and worse.....Just because you survive does not mean you are out of the woods....

              How does a mask made of cotton stop a microscopic virus either in or out of your respiratory system? IMO your no better off with our with out it. If it makes you feel safer that is fine Im not knocking you for it. I just dont believe it does any good, and we should not be forced to wear a mask

              Isnt it funny how you never heard about the flu this year though??? How many people died of the flu years before, but this is worse?? This seems to affect a certain group of people more, unlike the flu that affects a great portion of the population from young to old. I want to know how many died of the flu this year, we will never know. This is also another version of the Sars virus that mutated, similar to the bird and swine flu.. However, none of this was done for any of those other virus's years prior. I got the swine flu and it was a week of hell, very similar to the symptoms of this virus. Im not down playing that death isnt real with it. I question why, all the crap to go along with it. Is this going to be something that we do every flu season now, etc...

                I don’t mind the mask. Been wearing one everyday since June 29th. Not that big of a deal.

                What I mind is the misinformation and the threat of jail time for not wearing one. I also question how governors and even the POTUS can create these new laws via executive order when the constitutions of every state and the federal government state that executive orders can only modify enforcement of existing laws, not create new ones. That’s what these mask mandates are

                  Exactly. Take the swine flu, it is just a flu. Covid is a respiratory virus that effects your lungs, breathing, and O2 in your blood. Very few H1N1 patients even had to be hospitalized let alone be ventilated overcrowding the hospital ICU's. The death count is way lower for H1N1 as well.

                                      According to CDC since January, 30 kids under the age of 15 died of covid. Same period in the US 190 under the age of 15 died of the flu. Any death is sad, but why close schools this fall??
                                      My grandchildren have been playing with neighbor kids since March. This summer they have gone to camps, played sports, and other interactive activities. So far they, nor I, or other family members have gotten sick. JMO

                                        I went and overall I think people respected wearing a mask. If I could sit at our site 6-8 feet space I didn't wear a mask. Someone walked in I'd slip one on. I was out walking the vendors area I'd wear one. No big deal for me and a majority in my opinion.
