Did I miss your condemnation of the protestors, looters, and rioter's lack of respect for social distancing and proper mask attire during their shoulder to shoulder marches and subsequent invasions of every business that had a glass window? Seems logical that screaming loudly through masks made out of a single layer of cotton or their hundreds of maskless interviews shouting into any convenient reporters microphone only to have that reporter immediately hand the mic to the next protestor would be a very dangerous practice.

If the lockdown/mask mantra was the correct path, we should see millions of new cases of the Chinese virus starting Monday, June 8.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
