    "In a lengthy Instagram post Sunday night, three-time Olympic gold medalist volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings laid out her opposition to wearing face masks as it takes away individual rights and discussed her “little exercise in being brave” of going shopping without wearing one....

    This statement woke me up & the truth of it has had me obsessing on the matter of how I can mindfully & compassionately stand up for my rights & for the freedoms our constitution has granted us all WITHOUT being reckless or putting anyone else in danger."

    "We are all endlessly complaining about the restrictive & arbitrarily selective rules that we are being strongly “suggested” to follow & yet we are all consenting; Not much of a fight, just a lot of complaining & strongly disagreeing with this manipulation, but we keep consenting. It’s maddening. It has crushed our society, people’s livelihoods, our children’s spirits, & the fabric of our world. We have become a country & a world estranged from each other & it is more deeply unhealthy than any virus could ever be.

    “I know people are getting sick & many have gone to Heaven. I have lived through a lot of loss in my family, in my life. I cherish life. I would never downplay the impact of a single loss of life. That is it’s own conversation & my heart goes out to all those suffering poor health, the loss of a loved one and the fear that the reaction to & media coverage of COVID-19 has created in your days...

    Mostly, I want to empower people to start/continue to live healthy lives. Eat well and eat real food. Prioritize sleep. Move and get your heart working every day. Pay attention to your breath and perhaps start a breath work protocol to work and strengthen your lungs. Get outside. Think good thoughts. KNOW your immune system is designed to support you through any illness -- we must support our entire system. I want people to stop living in fear and start living in a way that strengthens themselves body, mind and spirit.”

    Being a former beach volleyball player I just love that girl. I dated a lady on the women's tour back then. They did not have the AVP. They had Open division. Big names then were Kathy Gregory and Nina Matheiss. I did tournament play and was a fair player but not AVP material by a long shot. I played against some pretty good players in my day. I played against guys like Rick Shaw, Ronnie Von Hagen, Eric Macias and a few others before they had the AVP. I only played in one open tournament.... the first Lake Tahoe Open. I got my ass handed to me. LOL ....The court was bigger and we did mostly digging and seldom blocked because the rules were different back then. Now I tried to play it felt like someone put a block of cement around each foot. LOL. I digress. I am glad Kerry spoke up.

    for the 100th time, the mask is not for you, it is for the guy next to you. If you are fine going to Ralphs maskless please stay out of my Ralphs. It is not all about you Kerri. People want to work, business wants to stay open, people want to go to a business and feel safe. The ones that are really enforcing masks the most are small business, guy like the Jersey Mikes owner in my neighborhood, they want to stay open and keep employees safe.

    Look at the record, check your local costco or home depot, masks work. Where are we getting flare ups, the know it all churches

    For the 1000th time.
    99.9% of the masks are worthless.
    N95(properly fitted) are good, but are not meant to be worn long term.

    If you’re worried about the flu, stay home and order online so the rest of us can open up and get on with our lives!

    What is not open. Bars movie theaters Disneyland and usc football. Where do you get off saying everything is closed. You do not even have the facts on what you are complaining about.

    Wow, she was always one of my favorite athletes and now a thoughtful missive balancing the respect for people, but understanding the devastation our complete submission has caused. Kerry is braver, than any of those craven millionaire NBA, NFL lackeys.

    When Catholic churches were open, masks and social distancing were strictly enforced. Only 20% of capacity was allowed.
    Where you get off blaming churches is not based in facts or reality. But those concepts are of no use to the left, so I get it.

    Downtown Disney has been open 2 months. Masks required, temperature checks,social distancing. No flare ups. U of Bama opens, student parties no masks or distancing and they get 2000 cases the first two weeks.

    Maybe you need to follow a medical expert who is not an eye doctor.

    And oh ya, that little thing called SCHOOL. What a dumb ass.

    Follow the money. In Nevada, casinos are open; all over the country liquor stores and pot dispensaries are open. A lot of revenue and tax money there. Churches - not so much, and in fact taxes are lower since contributions are tax deductible. Big box stores have always been open, small business not so much. Gee who are the big contributors to politicians - the big box stores, Amazon etc. or Mom and Pop sporting goods. Wake the hell up and figure out how selective these lockdowns truly are.

    Yes get in shape. It has done wonders for me. I lost 30 pounds since Covid lockdown. I run, swim, hit a heavy bag and lift weights. I recently completed an 11 mile run in two hours. Something that would have been inconceivable to me this time last year.

    Kerri Walsh--American Hero!

    Understand this is also to keep you sedate and content.

    For the 100th time, if face masks are so effective, why doesn’t your protect you?

    In fairness to Drew Brees, Kerry Walsh Jennings said nothing about BLM and isn't risking getting her ass kicked by a bus load of 300 pound guys.

    I had one of those, but I stopped wearing it. Yes, it effectively keeps the virus out, but in doing so--by nearly suffocating the wearer.

    Since I like to breathe, I carry a bandana that I wear only when I'm in a business where masks are required. It comes off the moment I'm out the door.

    Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove is not an eye doctor. She's the head of the World Health Organization's diseases and zoonosis unit, and she stated recently that asymptomatic transmission of WuFlu is "very rare. "

    of course taxes and jobs are a consideration. Nothing wrong with churches who play by the guidelines. Churches who take the we will do what we want attitude have been a major problem. A church open for an hour with no protection spreads 90 cases, costco that serves thousands everyday has very few issues. And this is not an isolated case, google it. Churches, weddings, home parties, school parties, bars, all the places with no masking or separation have been the problem areas. But republicans know better because they hire eye doctor experts.

    We are all sick and tired of this, I am pissed at republicans for making it worse. Screw you, I hope Trump loses big, Mr Hoax deserves it.
