  1. If restaurants cooked better than I do, I wouldn’t hesitate to eat at one that didn’t require masking at all. Since there is zero evidence they are the least bit effective anyway, per the CDC study of their effectiveness preventing influenza transmission several years ago. They are nothing less than a badging operation to let the the “authorities” know how many are compliant with tyranny. And so, how much more will be accepted. That’s it. Apparently quite a lot, since most people seem perfectly willing to accept such tyranny for no reason other than demonstrating their willing compliance with whatever the “authorities” say. Regardless how useless, stupid, and insane it may be. They aren’t gods. They are subject to errors in judgement, ethics, and reasoning just like you. The difference being they have “authority” to threaten you with violence if you disagree with them.
