Given all the claims that masking is cost-free in terms of broader culture, I thought it would be interesting to see what some of our iconic images would look like with the lower half of the subjects' faces covered.

Impression: There is clearly a cost. ImageImageImageImage

“So we cannot hold our heads high, as if believing we had logic, love, or truth on our side while we viciously wished death upon the unvaccinated. The best we can do is sit in the awareness of our rabid inhumanity for having cast so many aside.”

“But betting against them has been a scathing embarrassment for many of us who’ve now learned that the mandates only had the power we gave them…”
“It was not through quiet compliance that we avoided endless domination by pharmaceutical companies and medical checkpoints at every doorway. It was thanks to the people we tried to tear down.”

I’m struggling with this with all 3 of my younger girls. School was never easy — it’s not supposed to be. But it was always important.

Now it’s a nightmare & a lie. They’ve been destabilized & subjected to so many unacknowledged losses & harms.

Idk if there’s a path back.
And, yes, I’m exploring alternatives I would’ve never previously considered because the current situation is unsustainable.
Like the child featured in the story, my most affected child has ASD. School was already difficult but at least she felt supported and trusted the staff. She had finally made a few friends. When schools closed, her friends disappeared.

Now she just feels resentful and hopeless.

You guys got me ... I'm not going to lie. I don't know which Disney park is in which state.

And I don't care.

And I'm not going to put any effort into learning.

And I have zero issues being ignorant about this.

I imagine #Florida will do just fine, with or without #Disneyland. They have a far more attractive draw than an iconic theme park:

And before anyone links the Politifact Fact Check article claiming the assertion is ‘mostly false’, read it.

That determination rests on a multiple choice survey of recent migrants inquiring why they moved which didn’t even offer ‘Freedom’ as an option … 🙄
Look at when people moved and where they moved from.

Ask people why they vacationed there recently. I know quite a few who’d be happy to share their stories.

People want to be free — and that desire is anything but ‘dumb’.

Most (not all) people I know who went to grad school did so for one of 3 reasons:

1. They weren’t ready to enter the real world & accruing tens of thousands in additional debt seemed like a good deal for multi-year delay (and useless degree)…

2. They were entering a field wherein the value of BS/BA had been diluted into meaninglessness & a grad degree was a bare minimum.

3. They were “high performing” students who progressed to credentialists who could only see their value in terms of degrees & accolades…
The most financially successful person I know (in my local social sphere) has a HS diploma, a HVAC cert, & 15 yrs ago was sitting in jail for meth possession.

When he got clean, he bought a used truck, started an HVAC co., & worked his ass off.

He’s now worth tens of millions.

So many "I can't believe that unmasking is the hill people are willing to die on. It's just a mask!" tweets.

The hill isn't just about uncovering faces - although the importance of faces to humans cannot be overstated.

It's about rejecting the lies that brought about masks...
... and calling out the deception, control, gaslighting, and coercion.

It's rebelling against the humiliation, the dehumanization, and demands that we surrender not just our own ability to comm & breathe freely, but our children's health & development...
It's about rejecting the hypocrisy of, "you are not only responsible for my needs, but you must also disregard your own & if you don't, you're selfish"

It's about asserting that respect is a two-way street and it's not conferred by behavioral compliance or fiat.

It's earned...
