Has anyone here had any luck going into stores, wearing a '"breathable mask?" Without being stopped by some "Hitler" (type, I mean) brainwashed person? I find some stores are less strict than others, and am glad for that. I have allergies, and it is hard to breathe with the typical masks used. My husband does the shopping most of the time. And I buy any additional things just online, usually. But sometimes, I'd like to go into a store to point out to my husband what I want. I recently made a lace mask. That is a lot easier to breathe through. But even that is a bit difficult for me to breathe with. So will use it as little as is possible. And will continue to pray that the absurd mask laws are done away with as soon as is possible!

Just wear one of these. Not too uncomfortable, and very easy to breathe through. If anyone challenges you, warn him that you are actually The Dread Pirate Roberts. Far more fun than debating you have a medical exemption.

um what do you mean breathable mask,,,all masks are meant to allow you to breathe, its just if you cough or sneeze it will trap all the droplets that come out, and also stop anything in the air going into your passages.

Nobody really likes wearing them but Im not into judging those who dont. Theres also contact tracing if you go into a store as well, which is probably more important if theres infection, plus washing your hands .

Ive never had any argument with anyone over it at the store I work at. People know to keep their distance as well.

btw this is Bible discussion forum, maybe you want to put this in the Natural Health forum.

You can try adding a few drops of essential eucalytus oil to the mask to help with breathing or allergies, or inhale it in a vapour before you go out as it clears congestion.

I get terrible hayfever sometimes but I will use a natural remedy for that which contains quails eggs. I found it works better than nasal sprays that have steroids in them.

I went in Target several weeks ago and some kid working there told me that I had to pull my mask over my nose.
I told him that I need to breathe in order to shop.

Oh thank you! It's interesting to know! And of course - helpful! You have even bigger breathing holes than I have - compared to lace - which I made mine from. I wore it once so far - in a place that used to always stop me if they saw me without a mask - but this time - no one said anything! That's relief!

Oh, my goodness! And thanks for showing me the picture of your humorous way of following the rules that "everyone must wear a mask!" I'll have to tell my family about it so they can laugh at your ingenuity, too!

People ain't very picky where I'm at. I saw one guy wearing a pair of panty hose over his head in the John Deere shop.:geek:

LOL. So funny. You should get someone to film you, and put it on Youtube. I think pro-maskers would quickly become anti-maskers if everyone started wearing Gimp masks, or Hannibal-Lecter masks.

I do not wear a mask. Period. If asked, I inform the attendant that my health does not allow for masking. And you are correct about difficultly in breathing.

On the other hand, if I were into robbing banks, I would definitely wear a mask.:cool: But even there, it would appear that the infamous Jesse James never wore a mask. But he was a military strategist.

The whole masking tyranny is all about governmental control over people and their lives. The average mask does nothing. And even respected epidemiologists will agree.

1 Timothy 5:23, KJV: "Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities."

Paul would similarly advise us in the Body of Christ, to wear masks, for the sake of your neighbors.

Especially if it is no hardship for us. I worked in a body shop for a while, so I got used to it. Should not frustrate or offend our brother unnecessarily...

Romans 14:21 [It is] good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [any thing] whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

Ha ha! Yes, exactly - a mask would be good if one wanted to rob a bank!

Yes, I agree with you that the masking tyranny (and related Coronovirus hoax - I call it a hoax as it's tremendously exaggerated) has been brought about by evil people in governments around the world.

I am glad you have good success with stores leaving you alone when you say you can't wear them because of a health condition. I tell them that, too, but some are so stubborn - they still insist that I must wear one - so I have left such stores. I have a cousin who gets away with not wearing a mask too when going in stores - she said she and her husband do so and if asked - do as you said you do - they just say that they can't because of health conditions.

I go to stores less now, because of this mask law. I felt the right thing to do was not to wear a mask as I don't want to appear to accept their wrong law. But in my case, I found as I said - there are some places that are very obstinate and bullheaded about it. But maybe personality helps to control them - like if one has a real authorative personality - which I don't - as I'm shy. So I just do the best I can and keep praying for all this tyranny to stop as soon as is possible.
