Simple Math

For those that refuse to wear a mask:

The more people that get the virus, the higher the chance that someone else will get infected.

The more people that get infected, the higher your chances of catching the virus.

It's not really that complicated.

As of today, more than 4 million people have tested positive for the virus. Some experts have said the real rate may be 10x that number? If that is the case, that would mean 40 million people are walking around us with this deadly virus. That would be approximately one out of every eight Americans that could be infected.

The numbers are going up. Just yesterday, FL, TX, and CA set records for the number of deaths in a single day. Each day the numbers go up, the odds of you getting the virus go up. It is simple math.

If wearing a mask will prevent someone from catching the virus or prevent them from being so seriously ill that they die, that is not about freedom. That is about being considerate and caring for your fellow man.

1. These people think they are being patriots when they refuse to wear masks.

The opposite is actually true.

2. ... The more people infected, the less the economy functions ... supposedly why not masking


People tell us not to wear masks because they want the economy to open up and think that masks make people afraid.

Rising infection rates and death makes more people more afraid than masks ever did.

Red hatter foot, meet red hatter bullet.

3. It's such an odd assumption too

When you look at the other countries that have MANDATORY face masks 24/7 and their infection rate is minimal, their economies are all at 95 to 99%.

We have cornered the market on stupidity.

4. People blather about herd immunity

They have no idea what it would take to get there. Those numbers are staggering.

5. Plus the fact there is no guarantee that herd immunity works with this virus.
