    I cannot answer that question without violating the politics rule.

    Wearing mask has nothing to do with politics. It's 100% health issue.

    I agree with you. But you asked why people still won’t wear masks. The answer to that question is political. The source of the problem is a political one.

    This is why I'm afraid to go to California this year. My California friend told me that 50% of the California people don't wear mask outdoor.

    It depends on where you are. But yes, there are people here who refuse to wear masks. I know where it comes from, but it absolutely makes no sense to me.

    My friend in Taiwan told me that it's not a politics issue in Taiwan. Why it can be a politics issue in US?

    Starting from the 1st grade, all Chinese kid have to sweep the class room at the end of the school day. All Chinese kid wear mask since 1st grade through the end of senior high. All Chinese kids have mask in their pockets for 12 full years.

    Enlighten me, John. Why would I want to wear a mask outdoors, in the open air when no other people are close by? When I go out to walk the dog, I don't wear a mask, and I never come within 20 yards of anyone else. Heck 50 yards is rare.

    When I go to the store, I park, grab my mask that's hanging off my turn signal lever, and put it on as I walk across the parking lot and approach the entrance to the store. And even then, I keep my distance from others. Should I be wearing a mask every moment I'm out of my house? ...like my paranoid neighbor I see wearing a mask when driving around in his car with the windows up? Is there any logical reason to behave that way?

    No politics ...just give me some factual data as to the advantage of behaving like that!

    That is a discussion for a political forum. Enough to be aware that it has become a political issue and let that subject go.

    Should we first understand why it's a politics issue, we can then stop to discuss it?

    People have no issue to wear mask in party.

    People have turned it into a freedom issue, believing their rights are being infringed upon by being required to wear a mask. I’m not agreeing nor disagreeing with it; just stating what I’ve seen. That’s the politics in as simple of a way I can put it to not get political.

    Please don’t get the thread locked.

    I'm afraid to travel because I don't want to be crammed into a sealed airplane breathing the same air as a hundred or more strangers for hours. Once you get to your destination, you have many options, but getting there... that's another story!

    So I take day trips in my car.

    Aside from my previous post...

    They’re uncomfortable, difficult to breathe in, and I get hotter wearing one. I don’t want to wear a mask, but I do. Like it or not, I wear it to protect myself, my family, and others I come in contact with. It’s annoying and frustrating, but it is what it is. Hopefully it’ll end sooner than later.

    There is no common sense with the airlines. I flew in July and was on the plane for over three hours, all of us cramped in together, full flight, middle seats full, and then as we walked off the plane we were told "practice social distancing, your safety is our top priority." Biggest stench of bulls--- I ever got a sniff of.123
