  1. Yeah, I’m not wearing a face mask. Especially in public places or around other people.

    Wore one for 5 days in Taiwan in February, and swore never again.
    It’s so creepy looking and uncomfortable.


    We need LESS laws, not more stupid laws and mandates.
    What got us into this entire mess – is people bleating to be told what to do. Just begging to be directed to jump off whatever cliff someone else chose.

    No thanks. If you want to wear a face mask, just stay inside. The rest of us adults can live our lives without PPE on 24/7, thanks, but no thanks.
