    Friedrich Trump, German draft dodger, brothel owner, real estate investor, grandfather of Donald J. Trump went for a walk in NY in 1918 and collapsed. He died the following day from pneumonia, with or from the spanish flu, aged 49. It is not passed on wether he wore a mask. If I had to guess, I´d say he didn´t.

    If they don't want to wear a mask I hope they don't infect anyone but maybe they help to MAGA because they'll be gone 😂 2021🙌🙌

    All you zombies that love to be told what to do by government. You need mommy and daddy to tell you what to do. You are the problem in this country. Grow up. I guess critical thinking is hard for ya'll.

    There is no debate. There ARE people who are NOT doing their patriotic duty and wearing a mask. These people are selfish and ignorant.

    Florida is overpopulated! Covid is reducing the elderly, the poor and the unhealthy. Waiting in the wings: two-income Venezuelan families with technical degrees, excellent English and children they're eager to spend money on. The Republican party hopes to gain their voting loyalty. Three years of covid should open up a good chunk of real estate, especially by discouraging old people from moving here. The useful idiots at this protest don't look like computer scientists or engineers … They may not be able to compete. Oh, well. 🤗

    Welcome to America, where having to put a piece of cloth over your face to not die is political. Anyone outside the US please don’t ask because we don’t know either

    FYI A book from early 70’s called
    New Sounds For Woodwinds.
    Covers all the wind instruments with all the poly chords and combinations… not all of them pleasing but sound effects nonetheless. Music is meant to inspire new sounds…always. What if they had never experimented further beyond the harpsichord then we never would’ve had the most creative musical complete instrument of all… The piano. Keep it up!

    Im NOT wearing a mask for this BS. However, I did wear a mask once for about 5 minutes so I could vote, and not be hassled. Masks, as they are, do nothing. Just open stores already…

    "There is no reason to wear masks. They are not effective." Dr Anthony Fauci — It's like 1,700 Americans being killed EVERY SINGLE DAY by Big Healthcare medical malpractice and deadly adverse reactions to Big Pharma drugs and vaxxes, and everyone not being concerned that the #3 cause of Death in America IS THE FOR-PROFIT BIG HEALTHCARE (sic) SYSTEM, where 46% of Covid patients in ER-ICU die in a chemical coma with a tube shoved down their throat, and the other 54% who 'survive' wake up as invalids in hospice and already medically bankrupted for life. NOT ONE WORD in the Media!

    I'm defiant ! The government told us not to wear masks. I didn't believe them. I have been wearing a mask in defiance ever since.

    If I was a cashier, I would get fired the first day. When someone came to the register with no mask, I would move 6 feet away.
    My arms aren't 6 feet long, sorry, I can't reach the register.

    Those who refuse mask should be refused treatment when they are infected with covid.

    I would vote to NOT provide medical treatment in hospitals for people which got the virus are very sick and who didn't wear a mask or agree with Trump and his puppets about herd immunity. DO NOT even ask them to pay a lot of money to save their worthless life, just let them die.
