I’ve tried very hard to talk about both sides without bias, but when I say anything that isn’t negative about the right it doesn’t go over well. Politics is a land mine even during good times. I don’t mean to offend anyone, but I do examine posts from my perspective. What would I be thinking if I had made a post? How does my reply look to others? I can do a better job of maintaining neutrality. At the same time, I’ve noticed a pattern among posts about right side politicians. Almost all are negative and many call them names or add biased adjectives. I would rather discuss all sides in the same way. If I would not call one side names, then I would not do the same to the other side. I actually find faults on both sides, but I try to balance one side by posting information about the other side. Apparently that is not acceptable.
And that's a great reason for holding meetings virtually but has little to do with walking around an airport, thru a building, strolling to Marine 1. Situations where speaking is not required but you are surrounded by other people also walking.
I’m not sure I understand what you are getting at?
You said wearing a mask made talking difficult. It does and that is why meetings should be socially distanced or virtual. But when one is simply walking, where one might greet someone in passing (or not) the "difficult to talk" is not applicable and a mask should be worn. I spent hours in the hospital and at dr appointments and was able to talk and understand the dr and nurses. A speech setting adds the complications of a microphone and there is no question in my mind that makes understanding difficult.
So: when giving a speech Social distance, no mask. When walking around, wear a mask. When in one on one meetings wear a mask.
That's a good question. I don't have the answer.
I told you that I thought it was funny, and, after some thought, I realized that the reason I laughed is because Trump and most of the more visible Republicans have created conditions where it takes a lot of emotional energy to think positively of them.
It takes absolutely no emotional energy to be acutely and painfully aware of all the damage they've done. That's the constant condition they've created.
