Brian Kemp, joining his idiot cousins, jumped on the megalomaniac express: Governor Band Cities, Counties from Mandating Masks (Fox).
Quote:
The executive order reads in part: “State, county, or municipal law, order, ordinance, rule, or regulation that requires persons to wear face coverings, masks, face shields, or any other Personal Protective Equipment while in places of public accommodation or on public property are suspended to the extent that they are more restrictive than this Executive Order."
This same approach has been taken in Nebraska
(Nebraska governor threatens to withhold coronavirus relief funds from counties that require masks), and elsewhere, but most of these Govidiots merely refuse to take responsibility and issue mask orders themselves - Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona - even when they are spreaders themselves (Governor Stitt of Oklahoma).

What can we say? Hmm

I good 40% of the country seem intent on proving that they have even less mental acuity than their IQs would indicate.

I have no idea what one should say. They are, obviously, dedicated to killing as many of theirs as possible. Fauci has said that if they keep it up it can get as bad as the Flu of 1917. ALL experts, on TV, are starting to act as if they are stunned with what is going on and, more and more, are just shaking their heads in dis-belief.

I have a real problem with this stuff. I actually seems as if there is a segment of our society actually willing to die for the right to not wear a face mask, and kill others (as well as themselves) due to their perceived right to do so. Its just really hard to believe we are capable of this one! Oh, I say 'we' because, obviously 'we' are allowing this insanity.

This, I think, is giving even more delight to those who are already not fans of the United States. It seems as if we have a community of 300+ million determined to fail for the edification of the rest of the world. (well and Brazil too)

Look at it as Natural Selection in action. I suspect they would be horrified to know they are making evolution happen, but this is how it works: All the unfit die off and fail to reproduce. The more fit go on and the species is improved.

You can only try to save idiots from themselves so much. The penalty for stupidity has always been death.

It's not as if life presented the people of Georgia with a really smart, black lady to be their Governess versus some dumb old science-denying white guy. Hmm

Oh wait! gobsmacked

Bad link, but hey: Half the population has an IQ below 100. And Trump is not the first politician to recruit the morons. There was even a "No Nothing" Party: They were primarily an anti-Catholic, anti-immigration, and xenophobic, and their name came from the fact that they were supposed to tell outsiders "I know nothing" when asked about their Party, but it actually summed them up pretty well!

Yes ... the Constitution protects those who make poor decisions, which are not criminal, for whatever reason.

I've made a few myself.
