South East Texas Masks/ Orange county judge says he has Covid
Us in southeast Texas are now being told to comply with the mandatory masks. Not going over to well. The odd thing is that they say from 6/25-6/30. I either see it as them trying to see if they can get away with it so they will extend it or just trying to act like they are doing something """helpful""" Pfffttttt either way.... Lol

Update 6/30/2020

Orange county judge says he now has Covid

They will now probably say Orange county will be mandatory now

TEXT OF JEFFERSON COUNTY JUDGE JEFF BRANICK’S LETTER TO RESIDENTS:

“I recognized when I entered the mandatory mask order that there would be people who would not like it. What I didn’t expect was the level of pure hatred and profanity laden messages that would make a sailor blush. That’s okay, it comes with the territory. What has been most disappointing to me has been the level of insistence by many that my orders are a direct affront to their constitutional rights. The U.S. Supreme Court, since 1794, after the Whiskey Rebellion, and times since has repeatedly held that these types of orders are allowed in certain circumstances and are, in fact, constitutional. Those who say otherwise are misinformed or are depending on Natural law, not Constitutional law. I have not asked people to lay down their arms, surrender their right to free speech or to be subject to having soldiers quartered in their homes, I’ve asked them to suffer the inconvenience of placing a 4x6” piece of material over their mouth and nose when in a business to protect their friends and neighbors. Individuals who seem to have no problem with a restaurant requiring shoes and a shirt go ballistic over a business asking them to wear a mask.

“Eighty years ago, the greatest generation planted victory gardens, collected tin, rubber and steel, had food ration books and endured black outs, all to support the war effort. Their sacrifices were significantly more weighty than the inconvenience the present order requires. I want to thank a fellow county judge for reminding me of this. Today, a small minority is screaming that this is some kind of communist plot to overthrow the nation. When did it happen that we all became so focused on our rights and not our obligations to our fellow man and woman? Jesus said “Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends”. I’m not directing anyone to lay down their life. Galatians 6:2 says “Carry each other’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the Law of Christ”. I love you, because that is what Christ teaches us to do.

“I wear a mask not because I am afraid but because it is one way of showing that I care about my neighbors. There is a lot we don’t know about COVID-19 but all the evidence suggests that wearing a mask helps to prevent the spread of the virus. If wearing a mask prevents one person from dying, then isn’t it worth the minor inconvenience? If wearing a mask helps us get our country and economy back to normal, then isn’t it our patriotic duty to do so?” I received this in an email from an Orange County resident. It is a note he keeps in his pocket which he gives to people who make snide remarks about his wearing a mask in stores.

“Based on my conversations with numerous physicians, directives from the president of the Texas Medical Association, the thoughts of the head of the Department of state health services, and many others in the medical field, masks can prevent the spread of the virus. Might we find out next year after peer reviewed studies that such is not the case? Can I find a YouTube video from an OSHA inspector that supports the opposite view? Yes to both questions. But we are in the midst of the largest spread that we have seen thus far, and to prevent another shutdown of “nonessential” businesses and to keep our hospital system from becoming overwhelmed I am acting on the best available information. Those “nonessential” businesses have families to feed and mortgages to pay and I want them to be able to do that without having to worry if they are at some point going to have to depend on unemployment benefits, if they are even available to them. I will lift the order as soon as I possibly can, but in the meantime I pray for your cooperation.”

We have it mandatory here now in my county in FL, and funny people just put it on in the store, then I've seen kids out partying all bunch in the car, like they could give a sh*t.

So many people testing positive with no symptoms or like such minimal symptoms no one is taking it seriously.

My concern would be they're masking everyone for some big event on the Fourth or something, and then the perpetrators will not be identified, just a though.

We were kicked out of a grocery store for not wearing masks. In NC they cannot directly enforce it on a citizen but a business can ask a patron to leave. They can then utilize the Trespass laws to forcibly remove you from the premises.

Maybe perpetrators with full size gas masks will start fires on the 4th of July to blame on Fireworks. Most antifa members wear full size gas masks so we know CCP, soros, and the dems are behind it.
Full size gas masks and regular masks should be banned on the 4th of July so no one can get away with any kind of crime.

Re: South East Texas Masks/ Orange county judge says he has Covid
OP, go online and get a copy of the actual "order" to wear masks and look at the exemptions. Basically no one can be forced to wear them.

I'm in a city that "requires" masks and I've yet to wear one. I keep copies of our cities ordinance so I can show them I'm exempt.

They never seem to tell the public there's exemptions. They are trying to get everyone to shame or guilt us into complying.

Keep fighting the good fight:)

Re: South East Texas Masks/ Orange county judge says he has Covid
Judge even released a statement because of all the backlash

TEXT OF JEFFERSON COUNTY JUDGE JEFF BRANICK’S LETTER TO RESIDENTS:

“I recognized when I entered the mandatory mask order that there would be people who would not like it. What I didn’t expect was the level of pure hatred and profanity laden messages that would make a sailor blush. That’s okay, it comes with the territory. What has been most disappointing to me has been the level of insistence by many that my orders are a direct affront to their constitutional rights. The U.S. Supreme Court, since 1794, after the Whiskey Rebellion, and times since has repeatedly held that these types of orders are allowed in certain circumstances and are, in fact, constitutional. Those who say otherwise are misinformed or are depending on Natural law, not Constitutional law. I have not asked people to lay down their arms, surrender their right to free speech or to be subject to having soldiers quartered in their homes, I’ve asked them to suffer the inconvenience of placing a 4x6” piece of material over their mouth and nose when in a business to protect their friends and neighbors. Individuals who seem to have no problem with a restaurant requiring shoes and a shirt go ballistic over a business asking them to wear a mask.

“Eighty years ago, the greatest generation planted victory gardens, collected tin, rubber and steel, had food ration books and endured black outs, all to support the war effort. Their sacrifices were significantly more weighty than the inconvenience the present order requires. I want to thank a fellow county judge for reminding me of this. Today, a small minority is screaming that this is some kind of communist plot to overthrow the nation. When did it happen that we all became so focused on our rights and not our obligations to our fellow man and woman? Jesus said “Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends”. I’m not directing anyone to lay down their life. Galatians 6:2 says “Carry each other’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the Law of Christ”. I love you, because that is what Christ teaches us to do.

“I wear a mask not because I am afraid but because it is one way of showing that I care about my neighbors. There is a lot we don’t know about COVID-19 but all the evidence suggests that wearing a mask helps to prevent the spread of the virus. If wearing a mask prevents one person from dying, then isn’t it worth the minor inconvenience? If wearing a mask helps us get our country and economy back to normal, then isn’t it our patriotic duty to do so?” I received this in an email from an Orange County resident. It is a note he keeps in his pocket which he gives to people who make snide remarks about his wearing a mask in stores.

“Based on my conversations with numerous physicians, directives from the president of the Texas Medical Association, the thoughts of the head of the Department of state health services, and many others in the medical field, masks can prevent the spread of the virus. Might we find out next year after peer reviewed studies that such is not the case? Can I find a YouTube video from an OSHA inspector that supports the opposite view? Yes to both questions. But we are in the midst of the largest spread that we have seen thus far, and to prevent another shutdown of “nonessential” businesses and to keep our hospital system from becoming overwhelmed I am acting on the best available information. Those “nonessential” businesses have families to feed and mortgages to pay and I want them to be able to do that without having to worry if they are at some point going to have to depend on unemployment benefits, if they are even available to them. I will lift the order as soon as I possibly can, but in the meantime I pray for your cooperation.”

I agree with him. He is correct.

It is not a hoax. You would have to be fucking retarded to think so by now. Fucking idiots.

Re: South East Texas Masks/ Orange county judge says he has Covid
They mandated masks in Lower East Texas. I printed out the county judge's orders to carry with me, and just claim I fall under the population that doesn't have to wear masks. Screw being told what to wear.

Who knew that the American left really would become the fashion police? Well, I would have guessed it given their penchant for trying to determine even the most mundane aspects of everybody's lives because they are communist control freaks.

Masks reduce oxygen intake.

Cut large breathing holes in your mask.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74591712


Yes, they do. Which causes brain damage. Another way to dumb down the public even more.

I carry and wear my mask in stores as mandated but let it drop below my nose.
As I tell many peeps over and over: covering the mouth protects you, covering the nose and eyes protect me: I take my zinc, d3, and C (zinc destroys all viral cell walls)
so I'm not concerned.
covering the mouth is enough.
Having HUGE lung/breathing issues, this is essential for me...have almost fainted in the store a few x.
I live in a blue state and I'd get crucified if I didn't wear a mask in a store.
sev x I've forgotten my mask upon entering and get immediately lambasted.
poor sheeple.
then when I try to explain connection w/ wuhan/5*g and symptoms they glaze over and walk away.
how our world has changed since 2000.
