Of course this is true.
But there's a lot more cities and towns not mandating it than mandating it.
I'm not going to get into the politics of it. I think the fact that it got so politicized is sad. 

Without getting into the politics though, I think it's important that we don't get into a blame game over why it got politicized (we all know the players and their motivations), without recognizing that mask wearing ALSO got completely politicized during the Spanish Flu. 

None of our current politicians, on either side, were in power at that time. Yet it still got politicized, along very similar lines (people fighting against masks based on their rights).  

So maybe this is bigger than any individual pol...

It's also not limited to the USA, which is what makes OAM's constant tirades against his own country so petty and pointless.

There are anti-maskers all over the world.  There are anti-mask protests all over the world.

And as far as I know, nobody in the USA has been brutally murdered for suggesting someone else wear a mask, but that's not a true statement for France:

OAM is simply looking for reasons to be embarrassed about his home country, without ever looking further at what's happening around the globe.  Talk about denying any meaningful context.

Keep in mind we are talking about a virus where more then 98% of those who catch it recovers

and in fact if you eliminate folks over 60 its more then 99% recover

Im not saying no precautions should be taken but should Christmas be cancelled because of it

I dont think so

On the "poor behavior" front, my ex wants to take the kids to a big family Christmas get-together on Dec 19th. It's semi-outside (i.e. outdoors but in a big tent). She says they'll all be masked and each family grouping will segregate from others. I don't know exact numbers, but I'm guessing it might be 10 or more households.
Tough call,what if there is a downpour and it gets unseasonably cool.Then you have crowding indoors or everyone splits.Would she agree to that?

PS - just saw the 10 or more HOUSEHOLDS not individuals.How vigilant do you think she could be.I'mean once she gets a yakin' the guard could be down

Honestly, I would not allow it. BWar said that she tells him the families will be segregated. Well, if so, then why get together in a group like that?

I told her flat out I didn't think it was a good idea to take them, and offered her two choices. Leave them with me on the 19th and they just don't go (my preference), or she takes them but she doesn't bring them back to me he next day and subject me to the risk of her idiocy. 

She chose the latter.

I don't think requiring masks is a violation of folks rights that is severe enough to get worried about.

It's not a big deal.  For those folks that it is a big deal, health issue or whatever, it's not required.

Some may think they should have the right to go out in public w/o any clothes on - Naked

there are some rights I'd want protected badly enough to make a fuss or fight about.  Wearing a little paper mask isn't one of them.

and no, giving up the right to go maskless isn't going to lead to giving up much more important rights

Bingo, agree with that completely.  If it really is in a plastic sweatbox and not an open tent, then there's no way 10 families can remain as segregated as they'd need to be, to maintain safe distance.  So then, what's the point?
