    Traveling around the southeast in private aircraft, I've noticed that all the places where private aircraft go, called Fixed Base Operations, have signs posted about mask wearing, but it is not enforced.

    Not wearing a mask in 4 different locations in 2 different states yesterday, I expected to be challenged or harassed, but it didn't happen. In various locations some of the employees were wearing masks and some were not, and some of the customers were wearing masks and some were not.

    Probably about half wearing and half not wearing.

    This suggests to me that the law/regulation is being fairly well ignored, just as it is in Florida to the point that local mandates have been repealed.

    What is the significance of this phenomenon?

    It's a bit more complex than that.

    Death is the natural conclusion of life.

    It's not always natural, sometimes it's a bullet in the head. In this case people are putting themselves and others at risk of a deadly disease.

    Deplorables are going to deplorable is the take away.

    What this will do is to prevent us from ever being rid of this disease.

    Is this your lame attempt to brag about flying around in a private jet?

    Otherwise the post makes no sense at all

    Is this your lame attempt to whine about being downtrodden due to "The Rich"?

    Otherwise the response makes no sense at all

    Not me.

    According to the government I am rich!

    According to me, the wife and I are making more money than we every thought we would and really have no wants or needs that are not filled.

    Hopefully people are starting to wake up to the hoax. In Wisconsin, mask wearing mandates are very largely not enforced (and is no longer a mandate at the State level). Maybe within the most uber liberal of liberal areas it gets enforced (like Madison and Milwaukee), but I don't do business in those areas. More people than not are still imprisoning themselves with the face diapers, but a number of people are not. Some, like me, have refused to comply with such mandates.

    You are such a rebel!

    If a store says I have to wear a mask to enter, I do so as that is their right no different than them telling me I have to wear pants or shoes.

    I have to wonder, do you whine this much about being forced to wear pants or a shirt or shoes? How about being forced to wear a seat belt?

    Maybe, just maybe, people have had their fill of the Covid Circus of Lies, "only have to lock down for two weeks, only need masks till we pass this point, yada, yada, yada, a fresh lie with each passing day. And tell me this Covidians, if you've taken the miracle, life saving vaccines THEN WHY YOU SO DAMNED WORRIED ABOUT THOSE WHO CHOOSE NOT TO??? After all. YOU can't pass dread Covid to us, nor we to your safely vaccinated asses, or don't you really trust the great experiment you're participating in? By the way, here's the biggest LIE of all, "it can be eradicated if we but, but, but," fill in the blanks with any BS you choose, it's here to stay like influenza and common cold! With that horrid reality perhaps the government can be persuaded to distribute free cyanide capsules so those who live in a 24/7 state of hysteria over dread Covid can end their suffering and the rest of us can go about living our lives.

    If a store is doing so on their own accord (such as Menards and Costco), then I respect that decision and I then decide to take my business elsewhere.

    If a store is being forced to do so against their personal wishes (such as most small businesses), then I ignore the sign and continue on with my business per usual, with nobody giving a **** about me not wearing one.

    Most employees of stores (and other places of business) aren't getting paid enough to confront hostile anti-maskers.

    Wearing clothing is just being decent. Little kids don't need to experience porn whenever going to the grocery store with their parents.

    Being forced to wear a seat belt is unconstitutional utter bullshit as well. Many people do not comply with that mandate either. I personally choose to wear one because they mitigate bodily harm whenever vehicular accidents occur.

    What anti-maskers are hostile? I am very kind towards others so long as they are not hostile towards me.

    It is the maskholes who are hostile.

    Most rules stores have is because the government makes them. It is the height of arrogance to assume you are greater than the business owner and do not need to follow their rules.

    They do not say anything to you as they do not want to get attacked, but you could cost them fines and worse with your arrogance.

    So you are fine with governmental mandates that you agree with. Very telling.

    death by what? The chance of a non-elderly person or person without co-morbidities becoming even severely ill from Covid is quite small

    I am again traveling for business and have noticed that the folks in Democrat led states tend to be scared to death. I then walk into places and see why with the silly transparent shields hanging in between booths, shields hanging at registers, and mask nazis on the prowl.

    No wonder you Democrat voters are scared to death.

    So, I have to ask...taking precautions against a virus is being "scared to death" but needing to carry a gun 24/7 to protect yourself from whatever is not?

    What is the difference?

    For the fatalist, the bullet to the head is how it was meant to be.

    Aren't we all at risk of disease?

    Your posts are vague and hard to understand. As to your last sentence, in what case are you talking about? Not wearing a mask?

    If a store or a government law demanded that you kill your first born, would you comply?
