I wear a mask. I want to be able to go to a movie, or a dance here but I can't because no one will wear a mask. I would spend more money here but I can't because no one will wear a mask. I want to move to a place where people don't fuss about masks being worn and will be happy to show a vaccine record. I want to move to a place where the people in charge care about my well-being.
I've lived in Florida for almost 50 of my 64 years. Now I want to move from Florida. So no more real estate taxes from me. No more spending my money in Florida. No more of my professional license in Florida and I still work some. One less person here who has some, sorry to sound vain, critical thinking skills.
Too bad that half of the free masks that are supposed to be mailed out will be thrown in the trash for spite. The same goes for the free testing kits.
