Asking second test frankly criminal

Oh, the madness! The governor is proposing totally eliminating travel testing if you’ve been vaccinated.

The mayor of Maui County has a better idea. Let’s spend taxpayers’ money and have much-needed travelers wait in line for God knows how long to get a second test.

Can’t see how that would piss anyone off, and over time drive a wedge between travelers, and the thousands of Maui workers that have been devastated for the last year.

I must admit this whole progressive agenda is confusing at best.

Masks, bottom line, like it or not, they do little. Wearing them outside is simply stupid and yet our current administration continues to stand their ground on the matter.

New England Journal of Medicine in May 2020 concluded: “We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.”

You can’t have it both ways. Either it works or it doesn’t. I think the governor gets it; our mayor simply doesn’t. To ask a vaccinated person to get a Mainland test is dumb; to ask that same person to take a second test in Maui is, well, frankly criminal.

Shutting down America’s economy as a way to treat the COVID-19 pandemic will go down in history as one of the biggest mistakes we have ever made.
