Why so quiet a of a sudden? Where’s all the deniers?

In my opinion people are just tired, tired of being frightened, tired of being manipulated, tired of the self appointed “hall monitors” and the authoritarian , hypocritical, proclivities of left leaning politicians.

Like most of Europe, and Colorado, and a few other places, California is moving on. Clearly that bothers some who want to cling to fear and their masks like little security blankets.

It was never about fear Derasmus. Masks and precautions were about caring about fellow citizens.
