You remember that old line about the Three Biggest Lies?
"I'll respect you in the morning." "The check is in the mail." "I'm here from the Government to help you"
Now it's the FIVE biggest lies!!! Add "The mask protects us" and "The vax works."
How do we know that these are lies?
"Because the public health leaders in our administration have made the determination based on data, that, that is a way to make sure they’re protected, their loved ones are protected, um, and that’s an extra step given the transmissibility of the virus.”
IOW, it's because WE SAY SO.
