    Wow, you now are so desperate you have to compare wearing a mask to killing my child.

    I am speechless, I cannot even begin to imagine why you think wearing a mask or shoes is the same thing as killing my child.

    I can only assume you have no children.

    Why not? If my face being uncovered is a right, why not my feet as well?

    Well, some people listen to epidemiologists, you know, that pesky science thing, wear masks, practice social distancing, and god only knows who the dummies who don't wear masks listen to.

    LOL, not only are you speechless, you are clueless and you routinely make bad assumptions.

    And you prefer not to address hypotheticals, avoiding rational public dialogue. It's old news sir. :lol:

    Things I do that are demanded by law...

    Stop at stop signs
    Stop at red lights.
    Slow down in school zones
    Do not pass school buses that are stopped
    Do not rob banks
    Do not walk around naked
    Wear shoes

    yet none of those mean I would also kill my child.
    But I can only assume you do none of the above

    Explain to us all how wearing a mask or shoes is the same thing as killing a child.

    Finally, you answered the rhetorical question, reluctantly and in a round about way.

    Now that we've reached that point, maybe you can explain to me how wearing a mask prevents the airborne transmission of virus, and how my flouting those silly damn rules harms anybody at all? Maybe you can explain why I should follow the rules made by corporate heads and government bureaucrats?

    Better yet, maybe you can explain why they have those silly damn signs up everywhere when only half the people are honoring them?

    I won't hold my breath Darth. :sleeping:

    I do not give a **** what you do. Personally I feel it is wrong to ignore the rules a store has in place, be it a mask or wearing shoes. But you think you are special and that you are above such things. When I do not agree with the rules of a business I choose to not use that business as it is not the employees fault they have those rules and ignoring them puts them in a hard place. But none of this matters to you, all that matters to you, is you.

    Do you stop at stop signs and red lights? Those are rules made by government bureaucrats.

    Wearing masks is equal to having to kill your first born ... OK?

    You must be traveling to FBOs in rural areas cause all the employees in the FBO's around MIA and FLL are still wearing masks.

    gfm7175: 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.


    Yup. That's the problem. Government needs to get the **** out of the way, stop being fascist, and allow businesses to actually operate.

    I made no such assumptions. Again, reading comprehension is important.

    No, they don't say anything to me because they don't give a **** whether or not I wear a mask.

    Or government could just get the **** out of the way and allow businesses to operate normally.

    Damn right. Let me in barefoot and quit doing health checks in those places that sell food. None of the Government's business if a company is selling rotten food to people.

    Of course you did when you said you just ignored their rules. You cannot walk it back now.

    another assumption you are making.

    Define "normally"?

    I'm fine with governmental mandates that are constitutional.

    What makes forcing someone to wear a shirt or shoes any more constitutional than making someone wear a mask?

    You can go into some places barefoot.

    Government agencies are not necessary for this. Additionally, a company selling rotten food to people wouldn't get any customers.

    I didn't say that I ignored THEIR rules. I am ignoring the government's tyrannical mandates. There's a difference. Many companies didn't make those rules themselves. Read my post again. Reading comprehension is important.

    I've had numerous business owners personally tell me that they don't give a **** about mask wearing and think that it is stupid. I talk to people, you see.

    No mask mandates. No social distancing mandates. No limited occupancy mandates.

    The no shoes no shirt thing is an individual business thing, not a governmental mandate. The mask thing is a governmental mandate.

    Not true. They are health dept rules and regulations.

    No, I wasn't at FLL or MIA. I was at X51, GSO, VRB, FPR and EQY
