No masks required when City Hall opens? That's not very smart. One of the lessons you learn as a Marine and a reasonably smart person is to always protect yourself. The city needs a clean sweep of counsel folks.


Come On man you wanna live like this forever?

Safety third.


That explains why I see marines around town without masks; masks are to protect others. Although now that everyone in SBC is going bare-faced, we will need the masks to protect ourselves.

A " marine " and " a reasonably smart person " is an oxymoron . Genocide of poor people while living a communal , socialistic life style in a barracks so that you can carry out mercenary drone bombings in far off countries to make rich global financiers richer and force migration into Europe and America is not smart . We have almost a thousand military bases in 170 countries while China and Russia combined have about eleven outside their borders . America military expenditure known is 40% of global money spent . 911 was an inside job PROVEN by UNIV. of Alaska Engineering Report . Marines do not know these facts . They think we must commit genocide for our freedom . What rights and what freedom ? Act of 1871 and a litiny of others took your rights away long ago and there are no real patriots . It is " PATRIOTIC " to educate yourself before genociding the wrong people for the wrong people . See our noahide laws and Jesuit oath for references . FREE ASSANGE and PALESTINIANS . No moral Compass , order followers are brain stem active only . sad , but true . 911 was an inside job . Trump pardoned the attackers recently .
