L.A. County Supervisor Calls For End To ‘Blanket’ Mask Mandate After Newsom Went Maskless At NFL Game

L.A. County Supervisor Calls For End To ‘Blanket’ Mask Mandate After Newsom Went Maskless At NFL Game

Some signs of normalcy blooming like California poppies at the start of February.

A few stories have just been posted that show California isn’t entirely lost.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger called on officials to alter the mask mandate after California Gov. Gavin Newsom and other state political glitterati were pictured maskless with Laker legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson during the NFC Championship game.

“Let’s do away with blanket COVID-19 masking policies — they don’t make a difference when they’re not consistently followed or enforced,” Barger said in a statement. “We need to trust the public to make the best personal decisions for themselves based on their unique risks and circumstances.”

..Barger also pointed to the inconsistent adherence and enforcement during the game.

Granted, it’s not a complete nixing of ineffective policies. However, at least the trajectory is more promising than it has been.

Next, the state Assembly has mercifully killed the single-payer healthcare bill recently proposed.

Lawmakers declined to vote on a high-profile effort to overhaul California’s healthcare system on Monday, putting an end to a proposal that would have guaranteed medical coverage to every resident by levying billions in new taxes.

Assembly Bill 1400 by Assemblyman Ash Kalra (D-San Jose) did not have the necessary votes to move forward ahead of a key deadline Monday. Instead of forcing a vote that could be politically damaging for some of his Democratic colleagues, Kalra opted to let the bill die, angering the California Nurses Assn. that has championed single-payer for years.

…Critics of the single-payer plan have been flooding Californians’ cellphones and social media with ads criticizing the bill, saying it would “cause massive disruption to Californians’ healthcare at the worst possible time” and urging people to call lawmakers to tell them to reject AB 1400.

Opponents say even with its massive price tag, the proposal would still come up short of paying for the healthcare system overhaul. Exactly how much the proposal would have cost if it ultimately became law is still unknown. The Assembly recently approved a Republican request for the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office to review the cost and effects of the legislation.

Finally, a California city named after a Confederate general will keep its name, even after several years of woke hysteria.

Fort Bragg, which is named for the slaveholding southern general Braxton Bragg, established a citizen’s commission to study a name change after the 2020 death of George Floyd.

The city of 7,300, which is on the northern California coast, was established in 1857 and used as a military post to help quell rebellious Native American populations, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported.

The question of whether to keep the controversial name had sparked passionate divisions, and no consensus has been achieved, the group said.

“As a commission, we came to the conclusion that, at this time, because the citizens are so divided, this commission cannot unanimously recommend a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’,” commissioner Cesar Yanez, told the city council this week, The Guardian reported.

It looks like there are some excellent hotel deals for Fort Bragg. I may have to make that my Presidents’ Day Weekend vacation destination.

It is good to see some signs of normalcy blooming, like California poppies at the start of February.

Are least two LA County Supervisors (Kathryn Barger and Hilda Solis) who are ready to call for the removal of Fake Doctor Ferrer and one other (Janice Hahn) who is very likely to join them. It only takes three. Sheila Kuehl (aka Louie Anderson) and Holly Mitchell are hardcore Marxists.

No one is listening to these people anymore and they know it. The Super Bowl is 9 days away and these hypocrites are terrified that the world will once again witness how LA is ignoring these “experts”.

Plus, I am sure the NFL is aware that most of the fans in attendance will not be local Rams fans but out-of-state visitors. I suspect the supervisors are getting an earful about televising another game where they either again have to avoid showing maskless fans violating distancing rules or worse, an entire stadium full of masked people (or lots of empty seats).

My bet: the Fake Doctor and her 8 dwarfs are fired next week ( if not sooner).

BTW, a little off topic but here is a little ray of sunshine:

The Spider-Man blockbuster proves that wokeness is death to the box office. It wasn’t Covid that was hurting attendance but awful movies. Now if they can stop with the endless sequels, maybe they can return to planet Earth and offer more than fantasy sci-fi movies. I miss the old dramas where acting was important.

Well, sir….freaking soft-handed punks finally figuring out that you cannot put all the dirt back in a hole.

We need to trust the public to make the best personal decisions for themselves based on their unique risks and circumstances.

What?!?! Actually allow the people to decide what is best for them and their families? I never thought I’d be hearing that from the authoritarian, dictatorial democrats. At least it’s a start.

    Kathryn Barger is one of us. Her district Santa Clarita is a conservative district. She has been the sole dissenter on the BofS from early on. For once, give credit where it’s due. Everyone out here isn’t insane and the resistance out here is much stronger than in most of the country.

    If only the Republican party and the rest of the country hadn’t sold us out under President Cheney things would be very different today. CA still consists mostly of red counties. Rather than the knee-jerk hatred of CA, it would be more useful to recognize that TX and FL are just barely red and at risk for the same exact reasons that took down CA. Fight THAT fight. Don’t sell them out the way the country sold out CA when we were still in the fight and fighting.

Even places that are dropping their mandates still keep the mask fiction alive in hospitals and doctor’s offices.

Let’s do away with blanket COVID-19 masking policies — they don’t make a difference when they’re not consistently followed or enforced,” Barger said in a statement.

Face diapers still don’t make a difference even when these totalitarian decrees are “consistently followed or enforced”.

So close….and yet still so far.

NFL, who needs them? They disrespect America, Americans should all disrespect NFL. Ignore them until they are hurt enough to understand the error of their ways.

In a related story, the NFL in conjunction with LA County will be hiring airline flight attendents to patrol the stadium during the Super Bowl and enforce the masked mandates. TSA agents will be onsite to escort non conformists off stadium grounds. Violators will be banned from the stadium for life with no appeal process available, parking and ticket costs will not be refunded.

I was in a museum in mid-Wilshire district of Los Angeles (don’t want to be specific to get folks in trouble) – and nobody told me to put mask on! Two hours totally mask-free. Oh the freedom

While we are at it, I am teaching in Cal State and I made a big stink that I can’t speak in mask for 3-hour lecture. Which is true – I get dizzy, can’t breathe, faint after some 15 minutes most. I am adjunct professor, meaning I have a day job – and in engineering they are scrambling to find qualified instructors.
We are coming back to campus on Feb. 14. We’ll see.

“Some signs of normalcy blooming like California poppies at the start of February”

Maybe.
Let’s hope it’s not just lingering vital signs emanating from the peripheral organs of an otherwise-dead body.

I read a book called “The Greatest Course that never was”. It’s about a reporter/lawyer tracking down “Augusta National West”! The course is finally located and it’s right there at Ft. Bragg, CA”! It’s a great book – especially if you enjoy golf and it’s history! This has nothing to do with the issue at hand. I just thought some might be interested in another reason to explore Ft. Bragg!

Interesting that Garcetti said he simply “stops breathing” when around maskless people! I do believe he should be contacted by the Guinness Book of INSANE World Records!!!
