Biden and his leftist pals are making it seem like all his oppressive mandates are only “temporary” and will go away soon.
Ha! Remember when they told us we’d only be inconvenienced for two weeks in order to “flatten the curve” – and yet here we are 2-years later still wearing masks and separated from our loved ones.
And if you had hopes you could finally ditch (burn) your mask for good by summer– travel experts are predicting just the opposite – and here’s what they have to say.
When terrorists attacked America on 9/11– naturally we were all frightened – and horrified.
Airports updated their safety protocols – insisting liquids had to be reduced to travel sizes – travelers had to take their shoes off – and the invasive body scanning process began.
But more than 20-years later – the TSA is still mandating Americans take off their shoes and put their hands above their head to be scanned while going through security.
You see, once you give a bureaucrat the power to take away your freedom – it’s hard – almost impossible to get your freedoms back.
And today, we’re seeing power-thirsty politicians use their position of authority to restrict freedom-loving Americans from moving around – not just in the airport – but even in their own cities.
Biden armed the TSA with new authority to fine travelers if toddlers aren’t wearing their masks properly.
Kids are being asked to show vaccine papers simply to eat a slice of pizza at a restaurant with their dad.
Masks are being forced upon everyone 2 and up – even though we were all told if we got vaccinated, we could finally ditch (burn) our masks.
And then there’s the confusion over which masks are “acceptable” which changes often.
First cloth masks were good and encouraged – until they weren’t.
Then travelers were recommended to either “double mask” or buy an N95 (which were almost impossible to find or grossly overpriced).
And now, it’s political.
Rainbow flag masks are allowed, even encouraged…
… but a Federal Air Marshal was denied boarding until he removed his “offensive” American flag mask.
And on and on it goes.
Even though we’ve been promised time and time again masks were just “temporary” – it looks like they aren’t going away anytime soon – if ever.
The Points Guy reported:
“Get used to them,” is the message from Ryanair’s finance chief, Neil Sorahan, who compared face masks on flights to the liquid restrictions imposed on planes after the Sept. 11 attacks 20 years ago.
“Masks will be something that will be with us for a while longer to come,” said Sorahan. “If that is the price we have to pay for the next few months, into summer — it’s a small price to pay.”
“It’s a bit like after 9/11, we ended up with our toiletries in plastic bags, maybe we’ll have to live with masks for a while longer.”
If you were looking for a mask reprieve – it’s not happening.
In Biden’s “new normal” – it looks like masks are here to stay.
Do you think travelers should be forced to wear masks while traveling?
