Good. I think companies should have the right to require masks, but the government should not force anyone

Meh I understand this but a business has the right to say no shirt no shoes no service. Forcing anything on anyone is bullshit I agree but I don’t have to shop at there business either

Yes every homeowner or business owner has the natural right to set the rules in their own property. I have no objection to them doing so even if I think it's silly.

I think the problem arises when you can't go anywhere without having said personal freedom infringed upon like many area's of our country are dealing with right now. At what point do we draw the line on restricting how someone can conduct themselves in a way that has no effect on another pursuit of happiness?

(I hope my point comes across coherently. I'm having trouble articulating exactly what I'm trying to say.)

The point is, it's a free country. Free people. Free business. People should be able to do as they please. It's the government you want to keep out of the mix, because their business is ruling by force. Your argument plays straight into the "it infringes upon my rights if so and so won't bake me a gay cake".

No it's not. Businesses are not free in many states. They are under mask orders by executive decree.

Exactly how is that free?

chuckachookah 8 points ago +9 / -1

Exactly.

To me, an emergency order by a mayor, county commission, of a governor should not give them unlimited power over your life.

Emergency orders to close roads, bridges, etc for public safety are understandable, but forcing a business to require its patrons to place a device over their face or they and the business will be fined is absurd.

And you see this phrase being used everywhere “if, in fact, the science shows...” and then they fill in the blank with whatever their desire is.

They don’t have the facts. They have innuendo and supposition that is being driven by fear. The Facts we do have is that: people are not dying from this at an “alarming” rate.

And then you add the bullshit that is being played with the numbers, it’s clear that THEY HAVE NO FACTS to support their orders.

I don't agree. The government or any other entity shouldn't be able to compel someone to serve a cake at a ceremony that goes against their will (in that case it was a religious belief) just like the government or any other entity shouldn't be able to compel anyone to wear a mask in public places.

Basically I'm saying you shouldn't be able to compel someone to do something that they don't want to do. I believe they have a name for it. I believe it's called oppression.

The whole premise of the masks is silly anyway. Apparently they are to be worn to protect everyone else from you. Which is ridiculous. It's not rational to assume everyone will protect you from them. You can't control the actions of others and would be nieve to think that you could. Even if fairy tales could come true and somehow everybody gave a damn about everybody else there are still mistakes being made everywhere that could get people sick even with masks on. You simply can't control that. It is however rational to take precautions to protect yourself from everyone else. Whether it be from a virus or a mugging it has always rested on the American people to take measures to protect themselves and the people and things that they care about. Those that leave their safety solely in the hands of other people will eventually find out the hard way that the vast majority of other people care less about your safety than you do.

Consider starting a company that is open to all sorts of people. Those who wear masks and those who don’t. You’ll have a larger customer base if you don’t discriminate.

That is dangerously ignorant. One cannot break the law just "because they're on their own property". (Think murder, or child rape.)

'Meh, my home or business .. my rules.'

It doesn't work that way.

This also goes for the supression or abrogation of Rights. And some of those very much are happiness and commerce.

To put it another way .. what is the qualitative difference between "requiring masks" and "requiring burkas"? -- 'their business, their rules'.

'But, the masks are for the public good.' -- Are they? Every expert not tied up with Soros and Gates Foundation $$$$money say they're medically preposterous, Worse than doing nothing.

Btw the mandatory quantum dot tracking vaccines they'll want, next, will Also be "for the public good'.

If it were simply, honestly, just 'some business or two', that wouldn't be a big deal in a free society, but it's not Organic. It's Marxist Fascism, cooperation between elements of the deep state, foreign enemies, ginormous corporations that have been tied into "Homeland Security" since Bush W.

It's a War, the stakes are Life on Planet Earth, and our side is saying "Cattle cars?, well .. it's their railroad".

Spez: Ugh, seriously?? 🤦‍♂️ I don't want this to get lost off-page, so let's see if I can abuse 'Fixed Typo' the way HocusLocus is abusing Facts and Logic ..

Unless Walmart (et alia) are using the compulsory wearing of medically useless masks as part of their efforts to "create art consistent with their religious convictions" there is nothing similar in the comparison to GayCake. Phillips prevailed because the exercise was one of creativeness, the plantiffs were trying to force him (via labor) to create art for them in a style opposing his convictions. Unless people wanting to shop at Walmart without a mask are somehow converting 'Walmart's labors' into a de facto slavery, or it's against Walmart's "religion" that people show their faces (which might be closer to the truth, peace be upon them), then the "GayCake" argument is so specious as to begger credulity that it was proffered by anyone outside of ShariaBlue. Or CAIR.

In fact, on the matter, ACLU lawyers, for the Gay Plantiffs, Lauded the Supreme Court decision in that it drew the narrowest possible line for unique elements of the case .. while specifically leaving larger discrimination rulings intact.

ACLU: "The court reversed the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision based on concerns unique to the case but reaffirmed its longstanding rule that states can prevent the harms of discrimination in the marketplace".

So .. not only is shopping barefaced not "making Walmart bake Gay Cakes" 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ , but the very case you reference was, across the breadth of the ruling, a reassertion that States can prevent discrimination on other grounds.

As it is the very Duty of proper governments to do .. (ie - protect the Rights of its citizenry.)

Ah, so you're saying the business owner should have have no right to refuse service to you because you're not wearing a mask. And they should be compelled to "bake a rainbow cake" if you ask for one too?

This is hilarious! The level of goofy-think one experiences in conservative forums sometimes matches anything you find out in Wokeworld.

I get your general point, that it's not healthy for society and should not be encouraged but you don't have to bring in (murder, child rape, vaccines) to make your point. You even seem to bring Nazi cattle cars into it, that's not healthy either, like you're whipped up into some "well how 'bout THIS??" foaming frenzy. Chill!

Kemp is saying, keep cops out of it by having no mask laws on the books. But if a business owner asks you to leave and you don't leave, that is trespassing and they can call the cops. That law will always be on the books so long as we're in America.

Walrus_Tooth 10 points ago +12 / -2

No, he saying the government shouldn’t be able to enforce its will via its partners in the private sector to undermine the constitution, which is where we are right now.

Combine with this with how Democrats have made their political will synonymous with BS ‘protected’ classes, and we have a one sided system where one side gets shit on in society, the other fucked, all at the protection and will of the government.

HocusLocus 2 points ago +9 / -7 (edited)

"via its partners in the private sector "

So what does that mean? It's just conspiracy talk, like you load a squirt gun with "partners in the private sector" juice and squirt it on business owners who post directives (such as no mask no service) from their own personal choice and right you do not agree with or like. Accuse them of colluding with a corrupt government, that'll get them quaking in their boots!

I see some good coming of this. Walmart for example has just drawn a line in the sand against 'barefaces' nationwide. Wake up America! The simple fact that this is a decision made in a little air-conditioned board room in Bentonville Arkansas -- should make people wonder if the seat of government is not D.C. but Bentonville!

Maybe people will finally get off their asses to support the smaller or more distant-from-them remnant of businesses that are hanging on by a thread. The reality is, you're driving around looking for a business that does not put out a no mask no service sign. Sucks, doesn't it? Yeah but everyone's a Constitutional Lawyer now! We're gonna try to fix this without leaving our basements by …. Wait for it, this is funny… getting the Government involved!

We're sorry but eyebrows are known to harbor Demodex - You'll have to shave your eyebrows if you want to shop at WokeMart.

Please place your hands under the UV light. If you haven't washed them properly, you will be banned from CrustCo until you receive a certificate of hand washing training.

When you are open to the public for business, you are open to the public. A lot of compromises to "private property" come with a business license. A private business is not a health agency. Unless the business is legally authorized to give medical advice, they should not be doing so by requiring masks. It is no different that requiring someone to be a licensed electrician before they can operate as one. You want to sell hot food to go? You are probably going to need a food handling license. You want to tell people they have to wear masks? You need a medical license for that.

This is not the bake the cake argument. It is not remotely close. If the customer came in and told the shop owner they had to wear a mask, it would be the same.

HocusLocus 5 points ago +9 / -4

If the customer came in and told the shop owner they had to wear a mask, it would be the same.

Wrong. If the customer told the business owner they had to wear a mask, that owner could remind the customer they had the right to leave.

I seem to have missed the nationalization of Walmart in the news. Did that sneak in with the Net Neutrality decision?

Let's review trespassing law. If a business posts a sign at the door that says, "Only people wearing cow costumes are welcome" and said business owner calls the cops on someone not wearing one it goes like this,

  1. was directive posted clearly at entry? [yes]
  2. was customer asked to leave [yes]
  3. did customer leave? [no]

Customer is trespassing. It would get weird only if the cops were not wearing cow costumes and were expected to come inside. Thankfully that seldom happens. We love our Moolice.

I don't think there is a parallel. Forcing you to do something hazardous to your health has nothing to do with forcing someone to create art that offends them. I don't think you should be able to ban people from shopping at your store, for being black, being white, or being homosexual. I also don't think you should be able to force someone to create art, such as a gay marriage cake, a picture of Muhammad, or a swastika.

Leatherwood 3 points ago +3 / -0

Who would have imagined that we would be discussing the right of a business to turn away customers? We're not just talking one or two customers either. Isn't this just the opposite of what a business in a capitalist society typically does?

Walmart is obviously comfortable that people value shopping there over their personal freedoms. I hope that Walmart is proven wrong. Just the fact that they are based in Arkansas tells us that they are likely corrupt both politically and morally. This latest move, which is happening after the death rate from CV has been reduced to the point that we are no longer in a pandemic, proves the fact.

Conservatives are swearing off the Drudge Report but I check it regularly because it is a fast loading page that reveals the third grade intelligence and emotional level to which the MSM has descended.

The news is FULL of one metric (cases) wedge graphs now. A general lack of critical thinking skills is coming home to roost. These graphs (ludicrously) show only one thing 'new cases' as if it's the only piece of information anyone would ever want to see. And it's presented as a wedge graph, a lazy piece of shit graph which shows cumulative totals increasing forever. The Hockey Stick scam all over again. Since the cumulative numbers are large any change of rates -- angle of slope -- is invisibly small at the resolution it is drawn. It is the slope of a Volcano Of Doom.

These graphs are being pushed by clever people who know full well that showing relative change over time, or superimposing the declining daily hospitalization and death count would interfere with the state of gibbering terror they are trying to trigger.

We are perilously close to the point where everyone needs to choose a tribe and also relocate geographically, away from mass hysteria and madness.

A business Requiring a mask is nowhere near comparable to allowing murder or rape on their property. Bad analogy.

Unless you can point to a law that forbids masks, and the business requires them anyway, then this analogy doesn’t work.

And to be clear, the governors order doesn’t forbid masks. It just says localities can’t require them.

Agree. The same right to property he is refuting because of the "law trumps property" position he asserts would have protected the hypothetical murder victim (his own life is his property) which the right to property guy would certainly observe. The whole thing is backwards. Laws are instituted to protect rights, not violate them or create them out of thin air. It's not some federal law that is most violated by murder, the law is not what makes it wrong, and it was wrong before it was codified.

Local businesses are not health experts. You wouldn't let Costco force you to get an injection of B-12 vitamins before you shopped there would you?

We have an FDA. We have a CDC. We have state health agencies. Cities and businesses are not only unqualified to make health decisions, they should be banned from making unreasonable health decisions. If they don't like American freedom, get the flying FFFFFFF out of the United States and stop taking American dollars.

Someone else will be glad to take their business. Shoes and shirts are not health requirements. Antimicrobial shoes and copper wear shirts only would be.

Honestly this whole situation is a personal injury lawyer's wet dream. Gigantic corporations forcing their employees and customers to wear masks which obviously restrict breathing in some way... Now all someone has to do is prove it causes some kind of underlying damage (on the off chance it doesn't, some study somewhere will say it does).

I really don't think this ends without class action suits. I think any business enforcing these policies is asking for it.

Absolutley, and worse. The Pro-Mask Shilling over Based Georgia's No Masks EO is off the charts. The tactics are many and varied, this is but one: "If someone wants to wear a mask that is entirely their choice." -- But, Is It? Did everyone just suddenly, out of the blue, 'decide' to start wearing masks? No, they did not. It's not 'free will'. It's not the 'summer fashion trend'. They're the Victims of a Pernicious Scam. Globalist ideologues, Enemies of not just America but All Free Society, are using Fake News and Fear as Terrorism, .. and using this Completely Scienceless Mask-Theatre as Normalization of the public into Submission and Slavery. Masks Are The War. If it's Lost, they Will put Sterilant 'Vaccines' into everyone's bodies, Next.

I’d add a couple points:

  1. Thugs LOVE these mask edicts. They can waltz into your store with their face covered without drawing any attention, right up to the point where they pull out their glock and rob you blind.
  2. Masks create a moist bacteria party right over your mouth and nose. It’s a great way to get zits and other annoying ailments.

Isolated_Patriot 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's the opposite. If you go into a store barefoot and step on broken glass, the business is liable for putting you at risk, and blood contamination is a danger to everyone else. So actual health codes require businesses to enforce the wearing of shoes. I'm not sure on the specifics of shirts, but pretty sure it falls in the same health codes somehow.

Unless they want to add masks to the health code, and make businesses actually liable for lawsuit if anyone gets sick at any time from "improper masking" they just don't have the same legal authority to demand people wear masks.

I do agree that they should be allowed to refuse service to anyone they want, but it's not quite the same thing as being legally able to force people to wear masks. Refuse service to enough people and they can boycott or protest outside the doors of the store. They don't get to hide behind some health code ruling that doesn't exist.

Do they have a business license? If they do, they agreed to a whole set of rules that mean it is no longer their kingdom. Sometimes I wonder how many people making these comments have ever run their own business.

Let's give a quick example. You open your new Motorcycle Madness Warehouse. You put in these big aircraft hangar doors, and a couple old fashioned doors. The fire department comes in a week after you open and tells you to take down the big doors, add in 8 emergency exits and gives you 72 hours to have a plan to get it done within 30 days or they will shut you down.

Strictly speaking, neither does the mask to any significant degree. People in the operating room wear one for hours at a time with no adverse affects. Unless you have a pulse oximeter hooked up to you and can show that it drops your O2 saturation to below 90%, you're equating grains of sand to boulders.

Trust me. 80+% of people hate wearing masks and only wear them begrudgingly because businesses have a sign out front saying they are required. The signs even make sure to add "due to state and local requirements" so the consumers know it's "not their fault".

The second those requirements are lifted most businesses are going to take those signs down and the few who don't will take them down the second they realize their business is down 80% because no one wants to wear a mask.

I mean, the business could be a nursing home and clearly they need to be wearing masks there. Allowing businesses to make the call allows for targeted action, which is what we need in COVID policy.

I recall a interview from the last time they shut of power for a major city and half they residents were like "It's a good thing and needed to save us from a wild fire" while every small restaurant and convenience store probably lost all their perishable stock and only they larger chain grocery stores in the area had the capitol to either rent tractor trailer sized 500kw or larger diesel generators to keep their refrigeration running or bring in probably 4-6 eeeeevil diesel burning 53' reefer trailers to to save the inventory but loose thousand in revenue.

Not one of them said, this is unacceptable for us to have such an antiquated and dangerous power grid.

It’s not about places burning. It’s about control. The electricity being turned off last year didn’t stop fires. In fact, the area that were shut off still had fires. Democrats just hate Americans and target the most conservative areas to shut off.

California had record rain this year and is going through one of the most mild summers (so far June and July have been no where near as hot as usual), but that faggot Newscum and his fellow traitors will still try and say it’s a drought and jack up every bill/tax.

Millions of illegals replaced the American population. They have been using this playbook all across the US. Check out the demographic changes in the US from 1965 to today. Then, check out the correlation between how many third world shithole parasites invaded to how the state ‘votes’.

Thanks to the 1965 immigration Act, this country will never be the same. And thanks to Reagan, CA was lost within an couple of elections of amnesty passing.

And it’s already happening all over the county. Lots of purple where there was once red and lots of blue where there was once purple.

You're correct, upon further research Georgia has a Board of Pardons that render it nearly impossible. Still, the appointment of Loeffler leaves a very sour taste, despite his other good works. Ignored GEOTUS' preference for a lobbyist who likes insider trading.

masks allow sex offenders, perverts, abusers and others to slink and stalk woman and children. how are victims of abuse supposed to feel safe? with everyone hiding behind masks?

How are victims of domestic violence supposed to feel safe?

Everyone forced to hide behind masks? I was badly beaten and raped by my ex boyfriend, he beat and assaulted my kids. I have restraining orders.

Now people like that are free to stalk and taunt their victims?

All these mask orders are doing is allowing people like that to continue the abuse and enabling others to comment crimes.

This nonsense was only supposed to last two weeks. While people are trying to push "orders" on old and sometimes false information while forcing others to live in fear.

At this point the masks are just protecting child molesters, rapists and other abusers.
