Yeah, but there are a lot of things that are non essential that have reopened. Are bars essential? Gyms? I’d say, theu are to the people who own them and work at them. NFL Games are essential for the ushers, concession workers, nearby restraunts, etc.I agree with him. Football (and all sports) are nonessential. It’s just entertainment that allows us to escape our lives for a few hours. But I also believe they should not be paid if they don’t play.
That's not what "essential" means.Yeah, but there are a lot of things that are non essential that have reopened. Are bars essential? Gyms? I’d say, theu are to the people who own them and work at them. NFL Games are essential for the ushers, concession workers, nearby restraunts, etc.
Self-centered greed and an inability to show concern or empathy for our fellow citizens.This virus requires all of us to live differently for a little while. It requires that we re-examine our federal budget, our local budgets, and the way we educate our children. We will get past it, certainly, but there is real work to be done and it just seems we aren't up to the task of doing it. Covid-19 has exposed America's weaknesses as a nation.

A stubborn refusal to see past one's own nose.
Those probably aren't the best analogies to use. I can almost guarantee that the same people that oppose mandated mask wearing would also be against mandated seat belts and helmets. And I recognize the merits in opposing those as I don't like the government telling me how best to protect myself. I think a better analogy would be laws against drunk driving, whereas, they are not only for your protection, but the protection of others from your carelessness as well.Even simpler than that. Law says you have to wear a seatbelt while in a motor vehicle. If you don't, we can and likely will fine you. Some states still have helmet laws for motorcyclists. Those laws are not even to protect others, but to protect the wearers. In Texas, you have to have your car inspected annually (similar to a brake tag in NOLA) before you can renew your registration. Choose not to do that, you get fined. If it's not deemed safe/roadworthy enough, the registration is declined until the appropriate repairs are made.
If a business can have a "No shirt, No shoes, No service" sign, why can't it add "No mask" addendum to that list? Some local merchants are doing it, but not nearly enough.
So its self centered and greedy to want to go to work and feed your family?Self-centered greed and an inability to show concern or empathy for our fellow citizens.
I don't get the argument that having to wear a mask is an attack on freedom, but I do see anyone willing to make that argument being capable of absolutely not giving a crud about their fellow man.
It's like refusing to use your car breaks in order to stop from hitting an old person whose fallen in the street because you shouldn't be forced to put premature wear on your break pads.
Yes, if you're endangering others in so doing and especially when extreme measures have been employed to prevent you and your family from going without food.So its self centered and greedy to want to go to work and feed your family?
