It's definitely hard to enforce those rules without causing a scene and making things worse, but I kind of wish they could.
a reply to: Liquesence

its impossible to enforce a policy that is made for children on adults?

Now if there was some incentive system or a smarter way to go about the policy then just using force. maybe it could work



It's not impossible, but it is difficult, enforcing it among adults.

Children, on the other hand, nigh impossible (under a certain age).

One would think communal health would be incentive enough, rather than selfishness.

They probably already have it? To prevent shoplifting, to monitor what is going on outside, ect.

Do not believe their horsehit public relations excuse on this reversal. They had more than enough baby wannabe authoritarians to enforce these policies. The real reason is financial. Wal-Mart's cvs and many others were becoming increasingly empty (relatively speaking) while the smaller bodegas were fuller than ever.

You see folks, now you see first hand the collective power of the individual wallet. Keep it up. This is why they (the bank cartels) do not want your money in your possesion. If the money is in their vaults, they can decide how and when you spend it. When they try this again in ten or twenty years, they will simply lock the ability to facilitate your electronic transactions when not shopping at an approved multinational conglomerate.

Keep the hurt going, deprive them of everything to the point of bankruptcy. This is how cancel culture is supposed to work.

My mask does more to protect you from my germs than it does to protect me from yours.


I don't care, and I definitely did not nor would ever ask you to, to "protect" me. That's MY JOB, not yours, and the exact same in reverse, its YOUR job, not mine. If I'm not getting paid to mind others, I'm left with minding myself. And before anyone has a dingdong conniption fit over recompense and putting dollar signs on people, if you have any kind of insurance (health, life or anything else protecting YOU) then you already quantified yourself as a dollar sign to begin with. Eat me, you massive, blind hypocrites.



I suppose there will be ton of kids suddenly having lung problems when schools open also. But, you will want those teachers in the classrooms.


What about all the kids who've been playing in neighborhoods and parks all summer? My kids haven't been isolated from other kids. If anything, that says the teachers are far bigger germ factories in that setting, because the kiddies outside playing haven't passed anything around yet at all.

Mask the teachers, not the kids. It's easier going to the presumed source, in hindsight.

Omg dawn your right, i completely forgot no child ever got sick EVER from the cold or flu or ever had bronchitis or pneumonia before operation hypochondriac. Your an old lady that rarely goes out anymore. Most of your day is spent reading at home or your garden with an occasional park visit. You can keep your hypochondria and the rest of America would like to keep us free.

If fear and terror is your preferred emotional state, stay @ home. Me personally, I reccommend you stop grasping for every bit of fear and terror you can find on screen/print and speaker and remember that you have already lived a long fulfilling life despite the over sensationalised danger of a corona virus which much of the developed worlds humans have dealt with many times in their life and got over in a week or two or less.

Just dont cough or sneeze on people or talk at their face it's really that simple. The proper masks worn properly doesn't protect against airborne particulates.

I've given clearance and walked around isles before the mandate to those who were protecting themselves, even when they were using the lanes improperly and didnt give the same courtesy.

The perception of safety often leads to complacency.

I'm not playing part in the social experiment to appease the mass hysteria they've created. I'm done making my life harder for the ease or comfort of others.

Nobody cared to save me sanitizer, clorox, food, or even toilet paper when I was working on a job 15 deep with no running water during the shutdown. So , no I will not wear a "symbol" of safety for you now.

All the virtue signaler's who weren't wearing them before the mandate and that won't wear them after the mandate, can shove it, with the it's the right thing to do whether it works or not.

Well, if I am wrong, no harm done.
I just stay home, have my groceries delivered, and stay off the roads, which probably makes them safer for everyone else on the road.
If you are wrong... well, I wont have much sympathy for you if your hospital system gets so overburdened that there is no room at the inn when you need it.
No skin off my hack.. I'll still be home, having my groceries delivered.. I've always been pretty much a homebody anyways.

Walmart employee here. WE won't enforce it, but we have hired a private security company who will. It has not damaged business in the slightest. Record comp sales every day.

Not in Georgia.
And a good portion of Walmart stores have always had private security .
Who can't really do shi__ except detain and call local law enforcement at best.
Who would probably say "NOP" in this case.
"Not Our Problem" as it is not against any law here.

I believe Walmart is a private company and can implement any rule they want too, and you are free to shop elsewhere, I'm sure it won't hurt their bottom line much, and yes they can trespass you and the Police will write that ticket as per Walmart's request and you will be escorted off the premises, legally never to return! rules are rules

I understand the decision, but my god how sad must your life be if you were to attack a Walmart employee for asking you to put on a damn mask. Talk about shooting the messenger.


Yep you have to be a bit psycho to attack a Walmart employee for asking you to put a mask on.

Not a bit psycho, over the top psycho.

Of course, technically, if one is asked to leave for violating policy and one refuses, one is trespassing.

Whether that is enforced is the question.

The wearing of a mask now is the equvillent of shutting the door after the

horse has bolted.....

Now IF it were mandatory 3/4 months ago when the virus was at its height

that would have been another matter.......






Uh the virus is at its hight right now.


Uh the numbers of people being reported positive is at it's height now. More people than ever are taking the test.

The death rate is no where near it's peak. When the death rate was at it's peak very few people were getting tested because only the very ill and dying were eligible for tests, unless you were a celebrity or elite politician.

Tell that to my local sheriff who said he won't enforce any mask mandate. His department also won't press a trespassing charge over someone refusing to wear a mask. It's nice having a sheriff who believes the Constitution and Bill of Rights is the law of the land.

seems to me that Americans might have too much freedom and believe they have a right to be uncivilized savages, maybe Americans don't deserve freedom anymore since they cant seem to control themselves anymore, dictating what a business can do through fear, thanks to such savages i see many just shutting down because people refusing to work out of fear of the virus or the savage mobs that are plaguing America.

i fear Democratic rule is failing America and will destroy our country if we don't cast it aside, many forget our system was just meant to be a temporary thing until we became free of European control, just a measure of rebellion that doesn't push too far and piss off European powers. the creators of our country wanted a proper empire like rome and set up a structure to make it possible without making it too obvious, we just need to set things in motion by casting aside democracy and establish the imperial republic we were meant to be from the start.

before i was all about freedom but 2020 has proven how undeserving we are of freedom and how destructive it is in the hands of uncivilized savages and children, it just creates entitlement and people start thinking they can do whatever they want without any consequences, it also creates overly docile cowards that refuse to stop such entitled fools, cowed because they think democracy would be threatened if they demanded order.


You should be speaking elementals, with all the why's and wherefore's rather than in an all encompassing singularity..it just isn't like that.
Think about it.

Look, I don't like the mask thing at all, This being a free country after all. I'm only saying that private company's have rights also! our idiot governor made masks manditory at all busineses here, reluctantly if i want to shop or eat i have to comply, I haven't heard anything about the Police not enforcing the rule around here! But if they start telling me i have to wear a mask outside thats going too far, it all seems very petty to me, just saying

Huh?

Maybe where you are but Michigan is tailing off to almost nothing.

Look at the second page, check both the cases and deaths tabs. It's been a steady decline aside from a few minor spikes since April.

Our local Menards has a very proud rent-a-cop enforcing masks. I would so like to slap that smirk off his face but I just walk by because I don't need to go to jail over him. Yeah, you can see and hear how happy this guy is that he has the ability to force people to do something. Anything.

Covid cases rise hospitilizations low

SO this is how its kind of spun that oh no covid cases are on the rise? because the people who are testing postive are showing little to no symptoms and dont need to be in the hospital. Bu toh no there is a rise in cases.

Wal Mary can go to hell . Aren’t they the biggest supporters of child slavery in the world . Why is walMart still around . Shouldn’t the people in charge of hiring child slaves be put to death for forcing millions of children to work in their productS ?

You know it goes both ways, I have a Friend who lives alone with no one to help out. She can't wear a mask because of lung problem. She gets treated like a murder where ever she goes.

No lung issues here, but since the heart surgery I have a severe blood flow problem. Apparently that little bit of restriction is enough to be a problem; I tried wearing a bandana and made it two minutes before I was leaning heavy on my cane trying to maintain verticality. I will not wear a mask, period. No one has the right to demand I injure myself because they're skeered.

As for the mask Nazis? I swear I will cough as hard as I can square in their face and follow them around to make sure they get the idea if anyone ever tries it with me. What are they gonna do, hit me? That's when this old man with a heart condition falls to the ground clutching his chest and my wife calls the ambulance (and then the lawyer).

Enough is enough!

I feel for your friend.

At the end of the day, what gives them the right to trample on our rights? I spent some time in Iraq while in the Marine Corps. I was exposed to something that gave me some kind of illness that felt like the worst of worst colds. Some of the doctors called it Kuwaiti Crud. That illness developed into asthma. So now Wal-Mart should be allowed to take away my right to breathe clearly enough to not have an asthma attack because of someone else's feelings? Is that really what I signed that blank check to the American people for?
