I have one. A lady friend made it for me. I wear it when necessary.
does it fit around your face hair properly?
I cant help but laugh when I see a guy with a long beard wear a mask and all this hair is hanging out.......
I saw one person made a mask to look like a beard, they were going for the Bob Ross look......

As of today, my state is mandated to wear mask, face shields are not approved face coverings according to the documents.

I think both is a good idea even if you get stares because of the eye protection issue. Not 100% protection but it is logical that it just might save you from an airborne virus which would have landed in your eye but hits the shield. I am sure it has happened. It just makes sense. I keep forgetting mine when I go to Walmart. I was going to duct tape 4 foot pool noodles to the top of the face shield helmet sticking out in every direction to enforce social distancing but I decided that might be carrying it too far.

There are no "wild conspiracy theories"right now. There are actual conspiracies which no one is addressing. But whenever people refuse to acknowledge conspiracies they become virtual co-conspirators. So let's look at some actual conspiracies since 2016.

1. Is there hard evidence that there was a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY against Donald Trump and his associates so that a legally elected President would be "taken down" -- possibly even assassinated? Absolutely. Take the time to check it out from CONSERVATIVE news sources such as Breitbart News and a dozen others. The DOJ is still dithering around instead of prosecuting the traitors.

2. Is there hard evidence that the Communist bosses of China deliberately withheld critical information regarding the Wuhan virus, and in fact allowed Chinese nationals as well as Chinese visitors to China to travel and spread the virus all around the world? Absolutely, and once again check out credible CONSERVATIVE news sources (since the mainstream media are bought and paid for by China). This too was a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY.

3. Is there hard evidence that the Chinese government, the Wuhan laboratories, the WHO, the Imperial College, IHME, CDC, NIH, FDA, Gilead Sciences, Redfield, Fauci, Birx etc. conspired together to falsify information about the nature of corona virus, the death rates from infection, and preventative measures? Absolutely. Check it out if your care to. This too was a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY.

4. Is there hard evidence that those who should have made the hydroxychloroquine package freely available deliberately attacked this treatment, and prevented people at risk from a cheap and effective way to fight COVID-19? A respected medical doctor has exposed this unethical and criminal conspiracy which is meant to keep COVID-19 deaths at a high level. Other doctors have joined in to expose fraudulent Fauci and his shenanigans.

If you missed what has happened recently to expose this CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY by qualified medical professionals, it is time for you (and others) to get your heads out of the sand, since hundreds of thousands have died unnecessarily because a virtual ban was placed on HCQ by the FDA, CDC, NIH, and many other so-called medical *experts* who violated their Hippocratic Oath so that a few key people could make billions of dollars from Remdesivir and promote a vaccine which may not even be very effective (probably positively dangerous). And that is not all. Death threats have been issued against doctors who recommended HCQ.

5. Is there a current conspiracy to turn America -- a democratic Republic -- into a totalitarian Socialist/Communist/Marxist state? Check it out for yourself. BLM AND Antifa have been unleashed at this particular time to promote anarchy and chaos, while they destroy America by every possible means. These people have been trained in Communist tactics and are following the pattern of the Bolshevik Revolution.

What breno posted was about people acting as if the world has never dealt with a virus before. The problem that the US has is that we are the only country in the world beside Brazil that handled the corona virus poorly. This is not an opinion. The entire world can attest to to this! Who do you think is to blame for this Dr, Fauchi? The rest of the world `listened and look where they are. Do you believe that Mr. Trump handled this pandemic
well, or even at all?

When the virus first started to pop up in the US and they asked the current administration what their solution would be, they said they would request that people voluntarily stay at home. I laughed. The reason I laughed is that Americans have never stayed at home when they knew full well they were contagious with the flu. Why would they change now? I am not that naive. I knew they would stay home from work especially if they were getting paid but that most people would run around and do what they wanted when they wanted and the virus would spread and it did. I don't think that anything could have been done short of total enforced quarantines but that is not how our country works, that is only seen in Hollywood movies, in real life we don't even keep criminals on house arrest at home very well. People can blame the president but I don't think it is realistic to blame anyone. We never did that with the flu. We just accept it as part of life.

The last administration literally handed Trump a game plan that Worked for the last pandemic. Regardless of the stupidity and ignorance of our citizens We need leadership.

i wear a mask because businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone ( everyone has seemingly forgotten this), and they can ask people to wear a mask when entering their stores, that is absolutely their right.

while the virus is overblown and deaths and cases are ( way) overcounted, all the folks going into stores and cussing out employees are wrong for doing so.
Walmart requires each person that enters the store to be wearing a mask. For the safety of their employees they don't have to enforce it.

Joe Biden, if elected will display zero leadership. As far as guidelines and regulations pertaining to lock-down, this will end when America says that it will end. Before the first case was recorded in the US Biden criticized the Trump for closing off America, especially from China, a move that saved countless lives. He called Trump a racist. Biden is not a leader but rather a follower. He allows others to do his thinking for him .

not making that up. as of what I read yesterday from the governor here, face shields where listed as not approved.....

copied from "THE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR"

b. “Face covering” means a piece of cloth or other material that is worn to cover the nose and mouth completely. A “face covering” includes but is not limited to a bandanna, a cloth face mask, a disposable or paper mask, a neck gaiter, or a religious face covering. A “face covering” does not include face shields, mesh masks, masks with holes or openings, or masks with vents.

The plan behind the scenes is to not allow Joe biden to take any kind of leadership. The puppet masters behind Biden have been working very hard for him to take on an EVIL BLACK COMMUNIST WOMAN as his VP.

The minute he is elected, he will be declared as incompetent by his own party (under the 25th Amendment), and the VP will take charge and implement her Communist/Marxist Agenda. That is also why Biden has publicly declared that he has fully adopted Communist Bernie Sanders platform.

America is facing a crises as never before. The Leftists are working day and night to destroy America and establish a Socialist/ Marxist/Communist state.

Getting back to masks, they are a symbol of state control and state tyranny, since the majority of masks DO NOT prevent viral transmission. Only N95 masks are effective, and they are not being given to the general public.

Sure. That what they said about Hitler's ambitions until it was too late.

View attachment 219578
I'm going to have to have more evidence before I see Hitler behind the scenes of the Democratic ideology. That is a little extreme don't you think? What happened to being able tolerate different views and may the votes carry the day, without it being a matter of if you don't agree with me you must be Hitler.

My sense is that Quid Pro Joe will be replaced, as you have stated for incompetence by the 25th Amendment before his first year. That is if he doesn't die before that. Right now looks like he's going to pick a radical left-wing loon to fill the VP slot. Some guy on Fox said that Biden's VP pick is going to be his political living will. You are correct in stating that America is facing a crisis as never before.

About six months ago We were watching a town hall with Mr Biden and some red neck in the audience kept disrespecting him about his family and went on to say he was too old
Mr. Biden challenged him to a push up competition or anything else for that matter. this was a big boy he was talking to and he wimped out! lol. Could you imagine if Trump got in the Ring with Mr. Biden? And then the liberals were there to start crying saying that Mr. Biden was too aggressive! Liberals and Trumpists need to go away! lol..

You mean other than the fact that every country around the world has did this and it worked for them? (as well as the 6' distancing)
