Here in Franklin where I live, God’s country as I like to call it, we have at least a half dozen social media chat forums.
One of them is dominated by a hard, hateful lefty bunch that rarely for a Franklin site ever posts about Franklin. Except when it’s to rip any effort to grow the city and/or those who support such a positive concept.
Like liberals in general they’re a sad, sorry lot that more often than not is unhappy. They dislike you, they dislkike you, and most of the time they dislike themselves.
As mentioned Franklin is their not their priority. Blast Trump, for sure. But their main focus is excessive COVID fear mongering. Karens? Are you kidding? More like KARENs.
You will die. You need to wear a mask. You will need to stay home, always. Everything must be closed. God bless our lockdown governor.
The new president? He wants to shut down all of America? God bless him, too.
All of this is idiocy. Completely nuts. Consider masks.
“Masks by themselves do not prevent anything. The best practice is to make sure you’re washing your hands and staying physically distant from someone. Masks can certainly help. If you are asymptomatic and you might have the chance of impacting somebody else by being too close to them. Certainly they can help but this is not the only way this can spread and it’s not the only way to prevent spreading it.
“By and large there are far, far, far many things that people do that are a little bit riskier when they’re wearing masks because they forget about washing their hands or they get hot so they pull it down or pull it up, or they wear it around their ear or take it off with their hands and then lick their hand, all sorts of things that you’re not thinking about because you think the mask keeps me safe.”
Franklin’s Director of Health and Human Services Courtney Day at a July 2020 meeting of the Franklin Common Council.
Masks are not miracle workers. The KARENS here in Franklin are so frightful they don’t and will never understand. From a recent study:
While mask-wearing can help to reduce transmission of COVID-19, data show that mask mandates in the U.S. and other countries did not prevent a surge of cases.
During the U.S. surge in the fall, 97 of the 100 counties with the most confirmed cases had either a county-level mask mandate, a state-level mandate, or both.
