This is a question on a lot of people’s minds, and a question that a lot of people are asking.
My simple answer is, WE WILL NEVER GET BACK TO “NORMAL,” especially if you or your fellow citizens were foolish enough to elect a democrat governor or a democrat mayor.
Things will never be like they were pre-2020 and pre-COVID.
It’s not that we can’t get back to “normal.”
The truth of the matter is there are groups of people, people with a lot of power and influence, who don’t want our country to get back to “normal.”
Our “normal” way of life had way too much freedom and way too much capitalism in it, according to these people.
We could go where we wanted, do what we wanted, live like we wanted, and work like we wanted.
That, my friends, is all over now, and it ain’t coming back…, at least back to “normal.”
A precedent has now been set, regarding our response to the China virus.
A precedent that will now be retriggered every year, or every other year.
I’m sorry to say it, but masks are never going away now.
We will only continue to experience “new normals” from now on…, and they won’t be good.
According to Cornelius Phanthanh, the publisher of the article, Why Japanese wear masks: a look behind health, etiquette, and culture, “Not only relegated to flu season or fears of catching colds, masks have long been a regular part of Japanese society. They’ve evolved to carry a wider definition, some not having anything to do with health reasons at all.”
Ralph Jennings, of VOANEWS.com, says, “Not Just Coronavirus: Asians Have Worn Face Masks for Decades.”
“Asians, especially in Japan, China and Taiwan, have worn masks for a host of cultural and environmental reasons, including non-medical ones, since at least the 1950s.”
“Masks became a regular part of the street scene in parts of Asia after the deadly severe outbreak of acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) that started in China in 2002 before spreading to Singapore and Taiwan over the following year. Today manufacturers in East Asia are pumping out 10 to 20 million units per month.”
“The SARS outbreak was a ‘turning point,’ for Asia, said Chen Yih-chun, director of the National Taiwan University Hospital Center for Infection Control in Taipei.”
‘“Why we always mention the SARS matter is because during SARS and before that to wear a mask was impossible and patients didn’t want to cooperate,’ Chen said.”
“But Japanese had worn them even in the 1950s as a safeguard against rising air pollution, a byproduct of industrialization. Now people who feel just ‘under the weather’ in Japan wear them to be polite, Sutton said.”
“The website credits masks further with hiding people’s identities. To that end, the black face mask became a symbol of last year’s Hong Kong protests attended by citizens hoping to avoid detection by police or their employers.”
“In Taiwan, older people add sunglasses and sun hats to masks to obscure their entire faces. The full blockade wards off sunburns and, some users say, stops common air pollution. High-tech pollution barrier masks are a norm in China’s major cities.”
“The common use of masks in Asia now goes beyond official health guidance as panic spreads about catching the coronavirus and people already find masks acceptable. In Taiwan, as well as South Korea, the rage in mask buying has prompted rationing.”
“Governments in Singapore and Taiwan recommend masks primarily for people who are already sick. The World Health Organization says healthy people need not wear masks unless caring for someone with the new coronavirus.”
“Common surgical masks stop only droplets from the mouth and nose, not airborne germs.”
DID YOU GET THAT EVERYONE?
MASKS DO NOT PROTECT US FROM THE VIRUS, OR ANY VIRUS FOR THAT MATTER!
“Taiwan Health and Welfare Minister Chen Shih-chung advises against masks for healthy people unless they’re in crowds, where someone might cough or sneeze.”
‘“We’re still saying that healthy people basically don’t need to wear face mask, but we still want to advise that once you reach a crowded place for a long time, to wear a mask can protect yourself and protect other people,’ Chen said.”
DID YOU GET THAT, EVERYONE?
HEALTHY PEOPLE DON’T NEED TO WEAR A FACE MASK.
AND WHY IS THAT?
BECAUSE IT IS UNHEALTHY FOR HEALTHY PEOPLE TO WEAR A FACE MASK ALL OF THE TIME!
IT IS UNHEALTHY FOR HEALTHY PEOPLE TO WEAR A FACE MASK ALL OF THE TIME!
The truth of the matter is, if we would take extra precautions for older people and people with pre-existing conditions, the China virus is no more dangerous than the annual flu for the rest of us.
The truth of the matter is THESE EGGHEADS AND CORRUPT POLITICIANS SHUT DOWN THE ECONOMY AND OUR LIVES FOR NO GOOD REASON!
Well, I shouldn’t say for no good reason, especially for them.
Their “good reason” was to tank our unbelievable economy.
Because without doing that, the democrats had no chance of defeating President Trump in the 2020 election.
And the way it turned out, they still couldn’t beat him…, at least fair and square.
COVID-19 was a win-win for the democrats and the Communist Chinese Party.
For the rest of us, it was a lose-lose.
