They’re Relying On The Science! Political Science. (That’s A Science, Right?)

You might find yourself confused as to why you have to wear a face mask given all the conflicting information you’ve been given.

That’s because you have been duped. You need to stop listening to so-called “experts” like the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization and instead listen to real experts, like the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

Well, after they’ve changed their minds, that is. Just assume everything we thought we knew about viruses over the past five decades is wrong, and we just now in the past couple of months finally figured it all out.

Talk about timing.

For example, a study earlier this year that appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine made the following observation:

“We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection… In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic."

We now know that this statement was taken out of context. The correct context is shut up and wear your mask.

Kind of casts it in a whole new light, doesn’t it?

The Surgeon General had made similar statements strongly discouraging the wearing of face masks saying they were ineffective and could do more harm than good.

He has since recanted, urging us all that masks actually do work explaining the change by pointing out that we once “prescribed cigarettes for asthmatics.”

Ha! We were SO dumb in the 1950s. And March.

Poltifact even fact-checked a study that suggested masks were ineffective, finding that:

“No, a CDC-WHO study does not prove that masks do not prevent spread of COVID-19.”

Silly Citizens.

Their reasons:

First, the study was done on influenza, and yes, it may spread like Covid-19, but the study never mentioned Covid-19 specifically. (We assume they used the “Find” function.)

Second, they note that the study was done by the University of Hong Kong.

Keep in mind, they are trying to discredit the study by noting it was done by the Chinese.

Now normally, that would be very extremely racist and possibly a form of hate speech, and many careers would need to be ended as a consequence, but that is not the case here because of reasons.

Finally, one of the seven authors of the study said the claim was false.

Which author?

The only one who was white.

Again, under different circumstances that would be cause for an immediate dismissal of everyone at Politifact, the burning down of their offices and the smoking ruins left as a warning to others.

But these aren’t those circumstances. These are the kind of circumstances where you can say and do those things without fear of retribution.

The white, reliable, non-Chinese scientist pointed out that the finding that masks were not effective was an “incorrect interpretation,” of the study “confusing absence of evidence with evidence of absence.”

In human speak, that means the study found no proof that they were effective, but it didn’t prove they were ineffective either.

In other words, just because you found that beating on your computer with a hammer didn’t seem to help it connect to WiFi, doesn’t mean you’ve proven that beating on your computer with a hammer isn’t effective.

Science!

It should also be pointed out that the CDC directs you to many Chinese studies to prove that masks are in fact effective.

But we guess those were all approved by white guys.

Still suspicious?

Permit us to drop some truth bombs on you.

The CDC believes so strongly that you should wear a mask that they state right on their web site that you must not under any circumstances wear the most effective mask for stopping the spread of virus.

Instead, wear some random piece of cloth that your neighbor down the street, the one with all the cats, made using her deceased husband’s old Korean War uniforms.

You should also be perfectly comfortable finding that when you pull up many of the articles (such as this one and this one) on how face masks might not be all that effective, those articles have been modified with clarifications and notes saying that what they said is no longer true.

Which is not the least bit suspicious so stop thinking about it right now.

You should also not spend any time at all pondering the ramifications of the CDC’s latest advice that wearing a mask when you most need it, such as during close contact with someone for 15 minutes or longer, is useless.

Given all this, it is clear that as sovereign citizens we can examine this conflicting advice, much of it potentially politically motivated, and make our own decisions regarding whether or not we should wear a mask, under what circumstances, and how comfortable we are around others who may make decisions different from ours based on their own circumstances and risk tolerance.

Ha, ha, just kidding. Put on your mask and shut up.

Oh, that's the other nice thing about my new favorite grocery store -- no arrows on the floors telling you which way you can shop. Our idiot governor has mandated that everyone must wear masks in public places, but this store gets around it with a sign on the door stating that anyone with a medical condition that precludes wearing a mask is exempt from the requirement, and that due to HIPAA, no one can be asked about their medical condition. My chiropractor has a similar sign on the door to his office. 😃

I don't think I even have that option. Besides, I don't want to trigger anyone. I've already been scolded for going the wrong way in an aisle!

I have a pre-existing medical condition; it’s called not being able to breathe when I’m wearing a mask. (I also can’t see, because my glasses get all fogged up.) There is currently only one grocery store within driving distance of my house where I can shop without getting kicked out for not wearing a mask. They don’t have the largest selection or the lowest prices, but at least they respect the intelligence of their customers enough to let them decide for themselves whether or not to wear a mask.
