There is a national emergency, and all the people are instructed to wear a mask. People could get sick and some could die from the emergency, so governments have swung into action to enforce behavior to save lives. This certainly seems like a good thing, but it raises a question. As a running count of deaths is tabulated to demonstrate the dire effects of the current medical quandary, where has our government been while 480,000 deaths occur annually from tobacco and another 88,000 fatalities take place as a result of alcohol use?

That is more than 600,000 dead year in and year out. Why is this medical carnage not a national emergency? How many deaths are the result of the combined effects of these two toxins? Why are people talking about Green New Deals and climate change when over a half a million citizens are buried and cremated on an assembly line of poison intake that is dispensed legally at supermarkets?

It seems odd that no government officials ever passed laws requiring citizens to wear masks to protect themselves from the second-hand smoke of others, especially children, when millions are still exposed to it in spite of laws banning smoking in some public settings. Could it be that taxation plays a roll in decision making when it comes to protecting lives?

What about alcohol? Unlike tobacco it is still advertised everywhere, including sports on television. Any medical professional knows that ten percent of regular alcohol users are consuming ninety percent of the booze and they account for early deaths that make the plagues of the Middle Ages look like child’s play. All this destruction of hearts, livers and lungs goes on unabated while tobacco is sold, and liquor stores are deemed essential businesses in a health crisis while churches are locked down.

This is a glaring contradiction of common sense that causes people to question if medical science is really based on doing no harm. Tobacco and alcohol lobbies are fixtures in Washington, and they are dedicated to keeping their products available and affordable. But there is no way to tax a virus and use it as an investment so making people wear masks to prevent its spread makes it appear that people holding power are looking out for the public welfare.

You can put on a mask but nothing is going to change.

Excellent line of thought. If you are not careful you might well blow liberal/deep state minds into millions of wet shreds. Regardless of local and state government mandated mask wearing orders, what I find even more insidious are the countless big chain businesses and corporations which require customers/patrons to wear masks to enter their premises. We The People have somehow allowed ourselves to be authoritatively commanded by all the stores we used to love to shop in or go hungry or go without food, shelter products and medicine. Who the hell do the owners of Walmart, Target, Giant, Food Lion and the rest think they are? And what would happen if a majority of their customers all refused to wear masks inside their establishments.

Further, what the hell is wrong with the American people—myself included—who refuse to resist these private corporation dictated mask mandates. We have a service dog—a Blue Heeler. No matter how clean we keep our vehicles his hair spreads around their interiors like nuclear ash. Without fail, we'll get into a Walmart or some other massive store only to realize our masks are full of his hair. This makes wearing them for even a few minutes next to unbearable. And I also wonder how many people have died outright or suffered permanent damage to their bodies from constant mask wearing?

I certainly enjoy getting home and going into the backyard to enjoy an evening with covid. It's a big draw in my neighborhood. It's obviously something that adults can choose to enjoy

The entire thing is 100% total fraud.

CV19 left the US in May.

This is a coordinated effort by Democrats to wreck the US economy as part of a larger power grab by getting Low IQ Joe elected.

Want to die of CV19?

Get tested in a Dem area.... and you'll be told you have it.... and if you aren't a Dem in good standing..... "off you go" as another CV "death..."

You want the young to die. You want the old to die. But in between party like there is no tomorrow as long as it is you that cause your own demise and still blame someone else for it. We live at least 25 years longer then the Americans who lived during the Spanish Flu in 1918. The body breaks down a lot though for many during that time. We have far more diseases that lower immunity today then back in 1918. And much of that is through our own choices. Our choices that also may allow other diseases to enter the fray. So what is Covid? Something natural...or something from a lab?

There is a considerable difference between the illnesses brought on by ones choices and behavior you noted in the OP, and communicable diseases spread primarily from respiratory droplets carrying pathogens from infected persons. One of many things to note, cigarette smoke is NOT a pathogen, to borrow one of your examples.

While I agree with your basic premise, the reason so many died from the Spanish Flu was that there were no antibiotics to deal with secondary bacterial infections. If the government can impose mask requirements on the population why can't it sanction alcohol and tobacco manufacturers for causing deadly health results? The answer is it could, it just chooses not to.

This has nothing to do with health of citizens, its the next hoax in a line of failed attacks at the President.

It just so happens that masks are just as ineffective against smoke particles which run about 2 microns as they are against even much smaller virus cells.

Actually it uses health as a vehicle to take away private health insurance and force the population to go to the government with no other choice.

Actually masks may be more effective against tobacco smoke than viruses. The government is not concerned with a half million deaths each year from cigarettes because tobacco lobbies control it.

As a running count of deaths is tabulated to demonstrate the dire effects of the current medical quandary, where has our government been while 480,000 deaths occur annually from tobacco and another 88,000 fatalities take place as a result of alcohol use?

That is more than 600,000 dead year in and year out. Why is this medical carnage not a national emergency? How many deaths are the result of the combined effects of these two toxins? Why are people talking about Green New Deals and climate change when over a half a million citizens are buried and cremated on an assembly line of poison intake that is dispensed legally at supermarkets?

It seems odd that no government officials ever passed laws requiring citizens to wear masks to protect themselves from the second-hand smoke of others, especially children, when millions are still exposed to it in spite of laws banning smoking in some public settings. Could it be that taxation plays a roll in decision making when it comes to protecting lives?

What about alcohol? Unlike tobacco it is still advertised everywhere, including sports on television. Any medical professional knows that ten percent of regular alcohol users are consuming ninety percent of the booze and they account for early deaths that make the plagues of the Middle Ages look like child’s play. All this destruction of hearts, livers and lungs goes on unabated while tobacco is sold, and liquor stores are deemed essential businesses in a health crisis while churches are locked down.

This is a glaring contradiction of common sense that causes people to question if medical science is really based on doing no harm. Tobacco and alcohol lobbies are fixtures in Washington, and they are dedicated to keeping their products available and affordable. But there is no way to tax a virus and use it as an investment so making people wear masks to prevent its spread makes it appear that people holding power are looking out for the public welfare.

You can put on a mask but nothing is going to change.
Masks do nothing. Everyone is wearing one now and yet we still hear that the virus is spiking everywhere. It's a joke. This mutation is weaker than a mild cold.
