Yes, They Do Want You To Wear A Mask Even After Vaccination

What’s the point of the vaccination if you can’t ditch the mask and start living your life?

Why get COVID-19 vaccination if you still have to wear a mask? It beats getting sick, health experts say.

Get a COVID-19 vaccine and you’ll be counseled to keep wearing a mask and keep staying away from other people. So, what’s the point?

There’s an immediate benefit to the individual who gets a vaccine, said Andy Slavitt, White House senior advisor on the COVID-19 response. “People are interested in taking the vaccine,” he said at a Monday news conference, because “they don’t want to be sick and they don’t want to die.”

Getting two shots of either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine reduces an individual’s risk of developing symptomatic COVID-19 by about 95%, according to large research trials.

But life won’t get back to something like normal for the broader society until national infection rates come down further, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Yeah, but, if I get the shot, why am I worried about getting a sickness that has a low rate of death if I don’t wear a mask? Especially since masks have pretty much not worked, based on infections skyrocketing after masks became required in 31 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

It’s also possible, though research increasingly suggests it’s unlikely, that vaccinated people could still transmit the virus, even if they don’t fall ill themselves. “For that reason, we want to make sure that people continue to wear masks despite the fact that they’re vaccinated,” Fauci said.

Wait, weren’t we told that masks stop us from catching it? Or, are we going back to the original standard the CDC put out prior to May 31, that people who think they are sick should be the ones who wear them? Either way, it’s hard to think that this is anymore than Government wanting to make us comfortable with them telling us how to live our lives with COVID so we’re comfortable with more control.

The CDC is still working out exactly what is safe and what isn’t for those who are vaccinated.

They’ll let us know at some point. Maybe next year. So, keep locking down and stuff, Comrades!

Meanwhile, Excitable Rev William Barber, who likes to grab women flight attendants and fight with people on airplanes, is looking to take advantage of 500k American deaths

500,000 Americans have died of Covid. Will we wake up to our own callousness?

As the United States marks the terrible milestone of half a million souls lost to Covid-19, these deaths demand a grown-up conversation about the policies that shape our public life. When we look at the impact of this pandemic on other wealthy nations around the world, the disproportionate death toll we have sustained in the US exposes a basic failure of national security. Though we spend more than the next several nations combined on our military budget, our government was unable to protect its citizens against a deadly pathogen.

So, Government is bad, Bill?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported this week that, during the first six months of the pandemic, life expectancy for the average American dropped by a full year. For African Americans, the impact was nearly three times as severe, exposing persistent systemic racism that was not corrected when corporations agreed to say “Black Lives Matter”. We have not simply suffered a disaster. This disaster has unveiled dysfunction in our society.

Strange that most of that occurs in areas run by Democrats.

It is insulting to a people who have lost half a million parents, grandparents, siblings and partners to continue talking about the root causes of a national crisis in simplistic terms that do not fit the reality we can all see. In the US Congress, where the issue of raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is being debated as part of Biden’s American Rescue Plan, we are told that “moderate” Democrats are hesitant to support the measure. But what is moderate about denying just wages to the frontline service workers whom we’ve called “essential” throughout this pandemic? These poor workers are disproportionately Black and Latino, though the largest racial group in raw numbers is white. Senators like West Virginia’s Joe Manchin think they are guarding against the power of Trump’s fake populism among their white base by hedging on bold action to raise wages. But this simplistic framing plays into the divide-and-conquer tactics that pit poor white people against their Black and brown neighbors by telling them that the “far left” wants to take away their jobs and their freedoms. When we repeat the lie that raising the minimum wage is a “far-left” idea, we implicitly suggest that it is something the sensible people of West Virginia would never support.

It’s an interesting argument to link Fight for $15 as a need for COVID response, I’ll give him that. But, it’s a bunch of mule fritters. Just using the deaths for political gain.

    Teach why do big macs all cost the same all over the USA, when in New York City our minimum wage is $15 and other races have z minimum wage only 1/2 that of NYC
    Atent you Zaza leays telling us prices will go up if they raise the minimum wage ? Are Apple phones cheaper in your store because you psy workers much less?

  2. Dana says:

    The argument is that, even if you’ve been vaccinated, you could still carry the disease while not being symptomatic yourself, and might infect others. But, not to worry, once everybody has been vaccinated, Our Betters will come up with yet another reason to require the masks! Mutated strains, perhaps, or we must protect others from the flu during flu season, or whatever.

    But, of course, there’s a remarkable lack of seriousness. Fayette County public schools just opened, today, for in-person instruction . . . for kindergarten through second grade. The high schools are still closed, but the Fayette County high school basketball teams have been playing all along. No masks, no social distancing, all in a contact sport, and that’s perfectly fine!

    • Professor Hale says:

      Additionally, while public schools have all been shut down because Union teachers have gotten used to being paid for doing nothing, private schools have been open all over the country all along. As a result, enrollments in private schools have surged. Parents WANT their kids in school. Teachers don’t care. If it were up to them, they’d NEVER go back to work.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mr Dana believes the use of masks is part of the DemCom plot softening up Americans to the coming further tyranny of our commie overlords.

      • david7134 says:

        Jeff,
        What is the necessity for mask?

        I have not seen justification in reliable literature. As I said before, this is a minor disease except over 65. And even then it is rare to see a significant expression in healthy individuals. Mask studies have mostly centered around experiment with dummies, hardly the most reliable of studies. It is also evident that medical issues are now political, why. Then we have a hysterical person like you going crazy over the mask issue.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          darvon,

          You wouldn’t know reliable literature if it bit your fat ass.

          Is lung cancer a minor disease?

          Breast cancer? Colon cancer? Pancreatic?

          Cardiovascular disease?

          Septic shock?

          COPD?

          Stroke?

          Diabetes?

          Was 9/11 a serious event?

          Over 500,000 Americans have died from Covid, with more dying each day. That’s minor to those unaffected, we guess.

          Hundreds of teens died of Covid. Is that minor?

        The astute Mr Dowd wrote:

        Yes, actually, that’s correct. The (mostly) Democratic Governors have been imposing unconstitutional restrictions on our free exercise of religion and right of peaceable assembly, while claiming that it was necessary, don’t you know?

        Well, if our constitutional rights can be simply suspended, willy-nilly, by state governments, for this reason, they can be suspended for whatever other reasons the (mostly) Democratic state Governors can concoct.

        They’ve already been pushing the notion that freedom of speech is dangerous, and a threat to the republic, and the weak-minded and the liberals — please pardon the redundancy — are nodding their heads and saying, “This is good.”

        Next up? Big city mayors and state Governors declaring that private ownership of guns is a public health emergency, and attempts to curtail our Second Amendment rights.

    If you ever got out of your basement, you’d realize that the price of Apple phones are mandated by Apple and not set at the store level.

            Opinions vary.

            I am not worried about being called an “asshole” by unprincipled liars.

            Once again, this new idea of someone being an “asshole” is simply more projection from the left. Unable to demonstrate morals, ethics, or honestly, their hate compels them to simply call others assholes.

            After all, all the left has is hate.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach asks why mask usage is advisable after vaccination. The article said there is still some question about whether vaccinated individuals can pass along the highly contagious Covid virus.

    Masks, distancing and vaccination are thought to be the best way forward to turn this pandemic (500,000 dead, so far) into endemic disease. In addition, mask use would likely slow the spread of any novel variants of the original infectious virus.

    Teach further claims that masks don’t reduce virus transmission. That’s untrue.

    Teach further smears the Reverend William Barber accusing him of grabbing flight attendants and fighting with passengers. The Reverend asked a flight attendant to ask two intoxicated passengers behind him to quiet down. The two passengers assaulted the Reverend, mocking his disability. Reverend Barber was removed. Reverend Barber’s lawsuit against American Airlines is not the only racial discrimination suit they face.

    Porter ridiculously equates a criticism of the federal response to the pandemic as a condemnation of government in general, not the response of the administration at the time.

    Then he blames the systemic racism of the increasingly white, christian nationalism of America on Democrats in urban areas.

    Reverend Barber’s essay concerned American callousness, not just the disproportionate effect of Covid on Black and brown Americans.

    After all, all the gitarcarver and the right have is bullshit.

    Does Teach consider seat belts in cars to be tyranny? Maybe that was when the commies started their takeover. The sheeple put up with seat belts, then air bags and anti-lock brakes were crammed down your throats. Not to mention motorcycle helmets! Meat inspections, the FDA… the list goes on and on. But masks are just too much for the modern nuCon.

  7. david7134 says:

    Jeff,
    The reason for the masks is to make it appear that local, state or federal government are doing something, even if that something is worthless. The Dems hyped a minor illness, minor for the majority of the population. This was originally done to harm Trump. Now they have hysterical people like you running around so they dream up the mask and plastic dividers and all the other silly stunts.

    Stores like Kroger and others demand mask compliance to keep the lawyers away. So, the whole effort is meaningless, just like your CO2 concerns, taxes on the rich and all your crazy antics.
