Another 100 Days

Biden is obsessively talking about a 100-day mask mandate (because the virus cares about cute, round numbers). But in Illinois we’ve been masked for a lot longer than that. Our mask mandate dates back to May 1. Everybody complies. And it doesn’t seem to produce any result whatsoever.

Obviously, once that 100-day mandate doesn’t work, we will be told it’s our fault for not wearing them enough. It will never be the fault of the corrupt idiots in power.

  1. Using logic, if the people in charge are inept or corrupt or whatever it is which makes them incapable of controlling an infectious disease, then the one thing that makes sense is staying away from other people if and where possible, while minimising other infection risks like maintaining good hygiene.

    1. Please feel free to do that immediately. I’m all for you doing that for as long as you wish. I’m all for people dealing with absolutely any neurosis they have in a way that works for them.

      As for politicians being “able to control” a respiratory virus and the existence of the flu being seen as the fault of bad politicians…. I’m sure you can see why it’s hard to take this seriously, right?

      Right?

      1. Hang on a second Clarissa. Respectfully and everything, you don’t know me, and out of the two of us, I am the medical professional and not you. I do not think it in any way appropriate for you to make determinations about the severity of novel viruses followed by inferring that my actions are the result of ‘neurosis’, because you do not possess the requisite information and knowledge to make those determinations.

        Now regarding your other paragraph:

        “As for politicians being “able to control” a respiratory virus …. I’m sure you can see why it’s hard to take this seriously, right?”

        No, I cannot see why it is hard to take this seriously, because there are many respiratory viruses that have been brought under control as a result of policy decisions over the past few decades, while in regards to the SARSCOV2 virus specifically, it was brought under control all over the world with the most notable example right now being the city of Melbourne Australia.

        “As for… the existence of the flu being seen as the fault of bad politicians…. I’m sure you can see why it’s hard to take this seriously, right?”

        I do not see anywhere in your original post or any of the replies that followed where the flu was spoken about, nor blamed on bad politicians, or anything. To answer your question though, since politicians did not create the flu nor deliberately circulate it, then yes, blaming them for it doesn’t make any sense.

          Ah, so we’re back to that are we?? Was it just last week you were implying that you were a legal expert? When challenged, I recall you averred you had never claimed expertise in either field – I’m sure I must have understood.

          “many respiratory viruses that have been brought under control as a result of policy decisions over the past few decades”

          On thing for sure, you’re no expert on the limits of state power in respect to nature – perhaps you should read up on the story of King Canute, it’s a real humdinger.

            Pretty sure we never left it.

            “Was it just last week you were implying that you were a legal expert?”

            No, I didn’t. Seems you interpreted it that way though.

            “When challenged, I recall you averred you had never claimed expertise in either field – I’m sure I must have understood.”

            Yes, you misunderstood.

            “On thing for sure, you’re no expert on the limits of state power in respect to nature – perhaps you should read up on the story of King Canute, it’s a real humdinger.”

            No one mentioned the “limits of state power in respect to nature”. Clarissa was talking about Biden having some kind of mandate regarding masks, her expectation that the mandate would fail to produce the desired result, and blame shifting.

            So, respectfully and everything, perhaps read up on the thread you’re commenting on.

              Maybe yes, maybe no. I don’t care – since actual physicians disagree as in “Who shall decide when doctors disagree?”

              But I’m thinking it’s quite possible that you could actually hold a Ed.D. in pomposity.
