North Dakota House passes bill banning mask mandates, even bans businesses from requiring masks. Now the right wants to force businesses the other way. Hmm, thats interesting. Looks like its about politics and not freedom.

"If you can identify this loser, send me a DM!"

Congratulations, today's left. This is where we are today. We must publicly identify and humiliate and castigate anyone who fails to tow the company line. Or maybe worse? Are they going to make public names, home addresses, employers and employers' addresses? Egg their houses? Vandalize their cars?

I guess it's all well and good until they come after YOU for something you don't agree with. Lefties don't exactly think that far ahead though.
That is the clear goal with these posts - and Broke is fully on board. Re-tweeting and posting here and God knows where else. "Hey, this guy thinks different than me - let's get that MFer!"

Going maskless is a key factor in Covid-19 outbreaks at gyms, studies say

Wearing masks and other safety precautions are key to stop the spread of Covid-19 during indoor group exercise, according to two new reports published by the US Centers for Disease and Prevention. The two studies, published Wednesday, linked Covid-19 outbreaks over the summer to exercise facilities in Chicago and Honolulu.

In the Chicago report, 60% of people who attended in-person fitness classes at one facility between August 24 and September 1 tested positive for Covid-19. Another 7% of attendees reported symptoms consistent with the disease. While some mitigation measures were in place at the facility -- including required temperature checks and symptom screenings upon entry -- removal of masks was permitted during exercise, according to the report.

In Honolulu, 21 cases were linked to a fitness instructor who tested positive for Covid-19 on July 1. About two days before experiencing symptoms, the fitness instructor led a yoga class for 27 people while wearing a mask. There were no reported cases among these participants.
A few hours before symptom onset, the same instructor led a stationary cycling class for 10 people, none of whom wore a mask. All participants later tested positive for Covid-19, including a second fitness instructor linked to additional cases.

According to the first report, "the increased respiratory exertion that occurs in the enclosed spaces of indoor exercise facilities facilitates transmission" of the virus. Gyms should decrease class sizes and require physical distancing, and even w hen spaced 6 feet apart, the CDC recommends the use of a mask to reduce coronavirus transmission.The agency also says that facilities should improve ventilation and encourage patrons and staff to follow proper quarantine and isolation protocol after potential exposure to Covid-19 or the onset of symptoms.

Gotta give credit where credit is due; major props to G4Broke for continuing to show how the mask mandates are having a significantly detrimental impact on our society.

Two thumbs up to Broke! Keep 'em coming, we need to see more and more evidence of just how much this continues to wreak havoc on our society, happiness, and state of mind.

The spinning/cycling classes in the gyms I’ve seen down here are usually stuffed into a 20 x 20 foot darkened room, doors closed, assumedly so they can get a good sweat on.

I personally don’t consider weightlifting areas, particularly with open doors or windows, with limited capacity, to be very dangerous.

Treadmills, etc other aerobic exercise clearly riskier. Just do home high intensity interval training in a bedroom at home...concede less eye candy but that’s life. Better for you.
