Mask mandates don't mean much if the organization doesn't enforce it. Mississippi will likely be one of the more lax states in enforcing it, but it all comes down to the business owner. In Jackson it is much more likely to be enforced than in a smaller town like Winona.

Tater can talk tough, but all the Fed has to do is threaten to withhold federal funds and he will bend the knee. There is little law enforcement in most of MS, so even if there is a state-wide mask mandate, most municipalities will not expend much resources enforcing it.

Assuming you have no connection to the S'ip, I'd look at KY, North Alabama and East TN (in addition to previously mentioned Ark) first.

NC is bound to become the next Virginia. And that isn't a good thing.

I live in a smaller eastern town in NC and most businesses are not enforcing the mask mandate even with the sign on their doors. Not yet anyway but Cooper is just getting spun up again.

You're right and it's getting closer and closer with every election.

I'm just really tired of being labeled and judged for not wearing a mask. Democrats preach fear and division and I'm done being governed by one. It's more about control than anything else.

The wholesale destruction of Confederate monuments across North Carolina over this last summer is very reflective of how much the state has changed demographically in the last 12 years.

Virginia was a preview to it.

Personally - and this is just me - if you are going to be close to me, I would just as soon you wear a mask.
I don't care why you wear it.

Due to transplants. Think close to 50% are iirc.

What makes no sense to me is that the party associated with BLM is the same party that was associated with the KKK. They are the same type of organization, different racial makeup.

Don't even think about Ky. as a potential destination. It's a deep red state with an even deeper blue governor. I could explain the story behind that, but that unfortunately would be too far off-topic for this thread.

I label and judge people who wave guns around with no trigger discipline and not knowing what is downrange. They could accidently kill people.

I label and judge people who drive drunk. They could accidently kill people.

I label and judge people who don't wear masks. They could accidently kill people.


As for control, I wish ther really was a way to control people who don't care whether their family and friends, much less strangers, live or die.
