If people are not "feeling well" as you state,
shouldn't they stay home instead of possibly
infecting innocent people?

Yes, certainly.   But as we know this virus can transmit even if you don't have symptoms.   That is why it's recommended to wear a mask in the current situation - you may have it and transmit without knowing about it.

Here's a thought to your question peps.
If the scared people going out with masks
are protected by their "masks", why should
they care if I do not have a mask on?
If their masks are "protecting" them, why worry?

Masks are meant to protect other people from your germs.   In some societies, like Japan which I'm familiar with, people wear masks when they aren't feeling well.    It's a sign of respect and concern for others, for the common good.   This is the heart of the reason right wingers can't can't accept it.

No doubt. Architecture was just another front on which the Cold War was fought.

It is a good thing communism lost on this front.   Socialism produced some awful architecture generally and Romania is an example of this taken to extremes.     They have the grandiose heavy institutional buildings but also they did wholesale destruction in small towns and villages replacing historic buildings with concrete slabs lacking any historical references.        I'm still bitching about this regarding my home town so I feel for the people of Romania who went through this.

My comment: Well well, that's saying it like it is. NEW APPROACH: If you are afraid of this virus STAY HOME YOURSELF and don't ram your fear down everyone else's throat. PERFECT.

So you have no problem putting other people at risk when you go out, don't social distance, wear a mask , etc  ???

The Palace of the Parliament is the seat of the Parliament of Romania, located atop Dealul Spirii in Bucharest, the national capital.

The building was designed and supervised by chief architect Anca Petrescu, with a team of approximately 700 architects, and constructed over a period of 13 years (1984–97) in Socialist realist and modernist Neoclassical architectural forms and styles, with socialist realism in mind.  The Palace was ordered by Nicolae Ceaușescu (1918–1989), the dictator of Communist Romania and the second of two longtime autocrats in power in the country since World War II,  during a period in which the personality cult of political worship and adoration was noticeably increased for him and his family.

As of 2008, the Palace of the Parliament is valued at €3 billion ($3.4 billion), making it also the most expensive administrative building in the world.  The cost of heating and electric use and lighting alone exceeds $6 million per year, comparable to the total cost for powering a medium-sized city

I can't even begin to characterize the mental gymnastics I go through to try to understand right wingers  reaction to the pandemic which has been stunningly ignorant from the beginning.   

Jan - March: nothing to worry about!  News trying to take down Trump!

May with the USA leading the world toward 100,000 deaths, now  the steps and measures to lesson death and misery are no good for them, they aren't willing to put on masks or social distance to save others lives or their own.    How do they survive and thrive at all is my question?

The Trump Administration / THE UNWATCHABLE PRESIDENT

THE UNWATCHABLE PRESIDENT

For millions of Americans, Donald Trump is unwatchable. People can’t stand the sight or sound of him because they see through him. They can’t trust him, so his words offer no value. Years ago, they learned that Trump’s spool of lies has no ceiling and never ends, so any attempt to watch him requires a chyron correcting his ticker tape of tales.

Listening to a Trump speech is like accidentally answering a spam call: it’s not going anywhere safe, and it’s never going to end well. According to Trump, everything he does is the best ever, nobody could have done it like him, we’re never grateful enough, and it’s going to get even better. He’s responsible for everything good; Obama is to blame for everything wrong. Evidence is for fools; feedback is for the weak. He has often said that he doesn’t look back, and he has no regrets. We don’t need Sherlock Holmes to validate his claim–not even the Will Ferrell version.

When Trump speaks, it’s never thoughtful, reflective, or humble. He could never speak comfortably about someone’s loss because he doesn’t care. He can’t even fake caring. He only mourns the possible loss of his reputation as he sees it. When he hypnotically reads a speech, it’s obviously the first time he has seen it. He deciphers meaning as he reads. Since every speech is new to him, he occasionally pauses to ad-lib, but the comments are awkward and unmask his ignorance. But he’s always impressed with himself–his baseless pride glimmers in every smirk and snarl.

Trump has no sense of history or decency. He embodies everything unbecoming a person, takes everyone for a fool, thinks nothing of stealing from a charity or taxpayers, and turns his scandals and incompetence into others’ failures. He’s incapable of humor, as we uncomfortably witnessed at the Al Smith dinner when he roasted Hillary Clinton with pure vitriol. He could never grasp that it’s endearing to make fun of himself. It’s too risky. His ego prevents it.
