It was a year ago, March 30, 2020 to be precise, when RoseBud pointed out the common sense approach to slowing down ANY person-to-person airborne virus: If you wear a mask, the barrier you and another person create will obviously slow the spread.
We showed how Europe was way ahead of accepting a mask, and how, even this late into a pandemic that had begun more than a month earlier, no less than Dr. Anthony Fauci was still not on board with wearing a mask.
In fairness, he thought it MAY be helpful, but he was so concerned about a public run on N-95 approved masks, he feared hospitals and first responders would not have them.
So, he put a de-emphasis on wearing a mask. If you think that sounds nuts, or that we are making it up, you can watch the story we posted a year ago:
(if you have problems, just look up “masks” in our Rosebudchannel.com search feature, and March 30, 2020, will show up.)
So, here we are, a year later, and as Larry Mendte points out in this Commentary, a new president and his team are sounding alarms that, well, just don’t ring true, much in the way we found the Trump White House and Fauci slow to embrace masks last year.
Watch this Commentary, see if Larry’s points size up with your own, and write him if you’d like at @mendte. He’ll probably write back, so please be civil. After all, we just pointed all these things out, we don’t make the policies.
And as always, thank you for watching the RoseBud Channel.
