This is why I am anti-mask. The only study to show masks help stop the spread of Covid-19 showed only a 1% improvement, but this is the tradeoff. "A group of parents in Gainesville, FL, concerned about potential harms from masks, submitted six face masks to the University of Florida’s Mass Spectrometry Research and Education Center for analysis. The resulting report found that five masks were contaminated with bacteria, parasites, and fungi, including three with dangerous pathogenic and pneumonia-causing bacteria. No viruses were detected on the masks, although the test is capable of detecting viruses. The analysis detected the following 11 alarmingly dangerous pathogens on the masks: • Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumonia) • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (tuberculosis) • Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis, sepsis) • Acanthamoeba polyphaga (keratitis and granulomatous amebic encephalitis) • Acinetobacter baumanni (pneumonia, blood stream infections, meningitis, UTIs— resistant to antibiotics) • Escherichia coli (food poisoning) • Borrelia burgdorferi (causes Lyme disease) • Corynebacterium diphtheriae (diphtheria) • Legionella pneumophila (Legionnaires' disease) • Staphylococcus pyogenes serotype M3 (severe infections—high morbidity rates) • Staphylococcus aureus (meningitis, sepsis) Half of the masks were contaminated with one or more strains of pneumonia-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with one or more strains of meningitis-causing bacteria. One-third were contaminated with dangerous, antibiotic-resistant bacterial pathogens. In addition, less dangerous pathogens were identified, including pathogens that can cause fever, ulcers, acne, yeast infections, strep throat, periodontal disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and more. The face masks studied were new or freshly-laundered before wearing and had been worn for 5 to 8 hours, most during in-person schooling by children aged 6 through 11. One was worn by an adult. A t-shirt worn by one of the children at school and unworn masks were tested as controls. No pathogens were found on the controls. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/scottmorefield/2021/06/15/a-group-of-parents-sent-their-kids-face-masks-to-a-lab-for-analysis-heres-what-they-found-n2591047

The Fed says they won't raise rates until unemployment rates go down, but that won't happen as long as the government is handing out free money for sitting at home. Their excuse for why they are holding down rates despite inflation are blatant lies. They know that, if they raise rates, the government will soon start having trouble paying its interest which will bring the whole house of cards tumbling down. They are trying to stretch this mess to the limit. The longer the coming crash is put off, the worse the crash will be. It is already pretty much certain to make the Great Depression look like a recession. https://steadfastandloyal.com/news-for-you/this-decision-by-the-federal-reserve-will-shock-you/

How long do states need to do the Federal government's job before people start to say and think that we are better off without the Federal government? The Federal government provides very little of value, but they take everything they can from those who worked had to earn it and that includes freedom as well as money. https://flagandcross.com/ron-desantis-will-send-law-enforcement-to-texas-and-arizona-to-help-fight-bidens-border-crisis/
