    You're obviously missing the slippery slope: Today's it's a mask, tomorrow it's concentration camps.
    The direct line is obvious.:cool:

    The slippery slope from a yellow star to a camp did happen.
    Masks are not the same thing - you should wear a mask - but just like 9/11, our elected leaders have used a crisis to erode our personal liberties - and I’m not talking about masks.

    That's what the all mask nazis are pushing for so arrest for non compliance is a shock? Just counting the days before someone is shot by the cops for not wearing a mask.

    That's how it always starts. With something seemingly "small" and needful (if you don't do this, you're causing thousands of deaths). It's no coincidence that the same group of people pushing the mask mandates are the same people who want to take our guns, same people who want to cancel certain entertainment or performances (ie free speech no longer exists), same people who come up with slogans like "defund the police", which is really just a backdoor to that crowd having more control over society, the same people who think the governor of a state should be able to severely curtail the amount of attendees at a given mass.

    Just like canceling certain tv shows will never end racism, requiring (by law) everyone to mask up isn't going to stop the Coronavirus. In fact, I'd argue there are more people masking up now than ever and we see what's happening. I don't know if you have a GOP governor there in NC, but here we have a liberal Democrat governor who has made some very arbitrary and arcane guidelines regarding this virus. For example, he wanted it required that anyone who visits a state with 15% or higher positive test rate have to quarantine here for 14 days upon returning home. Then, he added Florida to that list of states, but Florida did not have a 15% positive test rate. He did it in response to DeSantis lifting the mask mandate. Completely arbitrary and political. He also tried pulling this stunt a couple of weeks before fall break, when thousands of families had already planned trips to Florida for the week.

    Fortunately, we have Daniel Cameron as attorney general (who actually got way more votes than our governor). Everything has been turned into an "advisory", instead of an "order".

    Been to the Dr. lately? The receptionists ask whether you have traveled outside the country. The nurse then asks questions about your mental condition. They were doing this before the pandemic. How is that different from what you describe here?

    Yes.
    Several differences:
    1. One is compulsory - the other optional
    2. Questions are about the family as a whole - not individual issues
    3. Questioning a minor vs. questioning a consenting adult.

    Liberty requires personal responsibility. Trump is demonstrating the fragility of a society which guarantees liberty when abused by bad actors.

    I was referring to Joe the laborer (see "what you describe here"). That eliminates #1, 3. The question to Joe doesn't specially identify any family members, nor does it specify whether he was time with them; only addresses those outside the family.

    Regarding the Qs toward children, I agree there are potential concerns there. One of which would be what schools have the time/personnel to question all the students. o_O

    This virus does not spread like the flu - didn't you hear dear leader's interview back in February when he said it spreads in the air, nothing like the regular flu? You need to read more of real scientists who are epidemiologists articles and news. You're really out of touch with the latest information about this virus. You're so March 2020.

    I think it's pretty crappy of those of you who refuse to google and find the non partisan scientists who prove that if everyone wore a mask, it would save lives. You don't want to save lives apparently. Or don't care.

    You know what opinions are like? Everyone has one.

    So what do you figure Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry has planned next, now that he's mandated face masks? What freedom do you figure he's planning to take next?

    I guess it depends on what state you live in. In Maryland, were asked if we recently went out of state

    So, the OP admits he traveled across several state lines to break bread with non-household family members, and he went in public with residents who were acting in an unsafe manner, and he’ll seemingly return home in the coming days? Rules for thee, not me, ehhh?

    What an own goal post.

    I had to wear my wife’s pink mask with little white dots on it to buy the generic blue ones at CVS b/c I lost my custom mask.

    I get everything from that CVS, so the cashier knows me and was laughing his ass off. Nothing else to add, but it was pretty funny.

    One more opportunity to see why people voted for Donald Trump.

    Holy crap! 515 deaths in South Korea! That’s more than the 260,000 deaths we have in this country. I majored in math at UF.

    Once again for those in the back, masks don’t work by keeping the virus out. Obviously, a piece of cloth isn’t going to keep something as small as a virus out. However, it does help prevent the spread if you’re one of those who has it and doesn’t show symptoms and/or who has minor symptoms and brushes it off as something else. Having something in front of your face when you sneeze, cough, etc. will keep the particles from getting all out all over the place. That, in conjunction with social distancing, does and can make a difference. People aren’t keeping 6 feet apart, though, so it’s only going to work so much.
