The Safety of Outdoor Air for Coronavirus Is Now Obvious

“There is now powerful observational evidence that outdoor air is extraordinary safe regarding COVID-19, and the recent protests have helped provide it.”

“The protests/riots began in Seattle and other cities on May 26th.”

“You want more evidence? No problem. About a month ago, there was a huge media commotion about “irresponsible” outdoor parties at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks (see picture below from the famous “party cove”. Several media outlets promised a huge uptick in COVID-19 cases.”

What actually happened? Nothing. No spike of COVID-19 cases in the neighboring counties. Outdoor air is safe.”

“The other day I was biking down the Burke Gilman trail and an older women saw me coming and fled off the trail, pushing her mask tight around her mouth as she turned to face away from me. There was profound fear in her eyes and it was completely unnecessary. Really bothered me.”

“And such fear is being stoked by local politicians and governments. The City of Seattle parks STILL has many of the parking lots closed and threatening signs everything.”


In a free society, you will find situations that are not set up to try to please everyone. Several examples are described below.

Americans were never meant to agree on matters of a personal nature. This is why we have so many different churches here and people who opt out on attending services.

Some churches do not allow women to be clergy members, or require women to dress in a certain way or keep their hair a certain way.

Should they be forced into compliance?

Some churches operate a pre-school, daycare, kitchen, shelter, youth program, summer camp, substance abuse program, high school, etc.

Should they be forced into compliance?


Must wear a mask?

Snohomish County nursery bans masks for staff during the coronavirus pandemic

Sign of a free society:

Postema said if it bothers customers, they can take their business elsewhere.”

Just because the governor says so, that doesn’t mean anything to me.”

“We have acres out here. We can do six feet of social distancing. So, we will keep it how it is,” he said.


I feel like a man on the moon in 1969 was a proud American moment.

Since that time, both major parties have taken turns in power and have squandered credibility that would help in the current situation.

We were told we needed to send troops to Vietnam to stay safe.

Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.

When do the people in charge answer for all this?

Snohomish’s rogue barber can still be sanctioned, state says

“Barber Bob Martin keeps cutting hair and brushing aside attempts by the state to get him to stop.”

“He continued serving patrons after the state Department of Licensing suspended his cosmetology operator license and served him with a cease-and-desist order for doing business without a salon shop license.”


Florist shop and bakery refuse service to gay customers

If I ran a bakery-

Store policy:

We do quality cakes for all occasions-no customer application/background check required.

Growing numbers of happy customers and building our positive reputation is our goal.

Please tell your friends & contact us at any time.


Recommendation for a free society-

Stay away from one size fits all mandates.

Let business people make business decisions.

Let customers support or walk away from the businesses of their choosing.


But, does that mean a business could refuse service to people of a certain faith or people of color?


As soon as such a policy was announced-mainstream news and social media networks would put the word out & the business would suffer immediate consequences-unlike legal action that may take years to develop.

No indoor smoking?

Many Washington State casinos have expanded in recent years and added lodging facilities.

“Many of Washington’s larger casinos offer a range of gaming, entertainment, lottery, and dining options. Some are even full-service resorts, complete with hotels, spas, dining, and attractions.”

Many WA casinos have added lodging facilities since the 2005 ban on indoor smoking in WA.

In 2005, casinos in WA allowed indoor smoking. The state said no.

Casino customers enjoy boozing, gambling, staying out late and smoking indoors.

The casinos continued to allow indoor smoking and expanded their operations as the years went by.
