    Why not, bro? I can just see it. We all each of us start a thread confessing our grave hypocrisy in that on some occasion we failed to wear a mask when we told everyone we would. We take that to the logical conclusion that has already been proposed to us by @Shaul: The conclusion that we are hypocrites one and all, and thus any views and opinions we have on matters of morality must be judged lacking in gravitas.

    But Shaul has yet to tell us what the point and purpose of such an exercise would be, not even in terms of how it might be applied to Biden. I'm concerned that it in some way or another helps to end the pandemic in the Fall, and restart the economy much sooner, for doing those things here would not only benefit Americans, but also ripple outward to help other peoples. too. I'm confident Shaul has thought this thing through and knows exactly where he wants it to go, and can explain to us how it helps America, and indeed the world, move forward.

    @Shaul?

    I'm curious why it's called an "absentee ballot" in the US. In the UK it's called a "postal vote", we've been doing it here for years.
    "Absentee ballot" gives the impression it's not a proper vote or something.

    **mod edit** Trump is finished, gone, deal with it .

    For a photo op of a family group , why would they not take their masks off. I would suspect there were also a few shot taken with them on.

    You have now posted 4 or 5 posts on the same subject in this thread offering nothing new. **mod edit**

    I can see the logic, but this description might be used to suggest that such votes are somehow invalid.
    Not that any politician would ever stoop so low, of course.. :p

    Unfortunately all the rest did - his personality defects, his obnoxious (and uncivil) behaviour towards many others (including those on 'his team'), and his disastrous actions that may have benefitted some but didn't for the vast majority - much of which existed outside of the USA. :oops: Lampooning has been a sport for a long while, if one hasn't much else (and where some are not so willing to listen), so lay off complaining. :D

    Detecting possible inconsistency or even (shudder) hypocrisy is so tiresome.

    Ok. But if you don’t wear a mask at all times on Federal property you are violating Biden’s Executive Order,

    Interesting, you'd think Biden would get praise for ignoring Mask rules from people on the right?
    Get your story straight!
    Admit you prefer him to not wear a mask. So why complain when he's doing something you approve of? lmao

    There are exceptions in the bill. You didn't read it did you?

    "(d) Heads of agencies may make categorical or case-by-case exceptions in implementing subsection (a) of this section to the extent that doing so is necessary or required by law, and consistent with applicable law. If heads of agencies make such exceptions, they shall require appropriate alternative safeguards, such as additional physical distancing measures, additional testing, or reconfiguration of workspace, consistent with applicable law. Heads of agencies shall document all exceptions in writing."

    Sorry, I don’t remember our conversations on the subject. But if you would be so kind to link the post(s), I’d appreciate the refresher.

    Or are you being sarcastic? Hope not.

    Considering that you two have worshiped a morally bankrupt buffoon for the last four years, are either of you really in a position to make such judgement?
