Wearing Masks And The Lone Ranger - And Response

Saturday, July 31, 2021

I used to watch the Lone Ranger television series with L.R on his trusted white horse and ever-present side kick, Tonto. 

The two represented as crime fighters ever present to find the guilty and punish. The duo clearly represented law and order and yes LR wore a mask.

I never questioned why he did. After all I was only 10 years old.

Now the adults are asking why should anyone have to wear a mask?   The answer is quite simple. This mask is not used as a symbol for a crime fighter but a symbol that I care for others.  So simple an act of bravery showing that I care.  So should you.

On July 27, the CDC recommended everyone in areas with high rates of COVID-19 infection rates wear masks in public indoor spaces regardless of vaccination status.

DC Mayor, Muriel Bowser, who likes to paint the streets of our nations capitol, recently enacted an indoor ask mandate for the District of Columbia. Then, just hours later she was photographed at an indoor wedding event with hundreds of attendees violating her own order (WUSA 9, Aug. 2, 2021).

At first the response was she was outdoors on a rooftop. Later the excuse when indoors was she must have been eating but that didn’t explain why other guests weren’t wearing masks.

Chicago is seeing a spike in cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19, yet Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who many may remember violated her own order to close beauty salons by getting her hair styled last year, was questioned about allowing the Lollapolooza music festival on Aug. 1.

Lightfoot’s response to criticisms was that people were required to show proof of vaccination or testing negative on the COVID-test. They were unmasked, however, contrary to CDC guidelines five days earlier.

Interestingly just before the festival, Lightfoot warned that another mask mandate could become necessary if cases started rising.

Finally, NYC saw an increase of 1,140 cases in one day (News 12, The Bronx, July 31, 2021). What did Bill de Blasio, aka Warren Wilhelm, Jr. say in response? He announced there would be no mask mandate for vaccinated people.

It’s rumored ex-President Barrack Obama is planning a 60th birthday fete to take place in a popular hangout for the rich and famous, Martha’s Vineyard. Will the hundreds in attendance be wearing masks? Perhaps for the staged photo ops they will but when the cameras go away will they masks?

All of this, Mr. Brooks is why people are untrusting about masks. These progressive elites, however, will just go on doing their thing with no regard to their own mandates while expecting us peons and surfs to quietly comply.

Hamilton County Commissioner Geter is correct in her statement, raising the thought or issue of a county nepotism audit?
