Amazon Now Requiring Face Masks For Online Purchases (Satire) © 2020 Phillip Evans

Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, recently learned that Walmart would be requiring face masks in all its stores starting Monday, July 20th, even in states where Covid-19 cases are low.

You don't get to be the richest man in the world without being smart, so he immediately realized that Walmart would be losing some customers and their dollars to Amazon. Being a man of the world community, he didn't want to be responsible for a politically correct company losing money, least of all to him, as he has all he needs.

So he teamed up with WWTMWY.commie (We Want To Meet With You) to provide a free service to Amazon shoppers that would validate them as customers who are honestly coming to Amazon, in order to weed out customers who are coming there because they refuse to wear a mask and shop at Walmart.

In an interview with CNN, Bezos explained that once an Amazon shopping cart is activated for checkout, it would email the customer a meeting invite link, whereby the customer must join and have their webcam on showing that their face is covered by a mask while completing their order.

After the customer's purchase, they are invited to remain online and help monitor the purchases of other customers to ensure they are in compliance as well. "This is a win-win, because it reduces the number of staff at Amazon required to operate our new service, and it gives customers a feeling of real power and control over others, which helps to alleviate their initial feeling of being controlled", said Bezos with a wink and a chuckle.

In related news, WWTMWY recently acquired technology that would allow them to remotely scan a special mark on a person's forehead or right hand for when that requirement is put in place for buying or selling, either online or in person.

Masked Little Tyrants in Georgia © 2020 Phillip Evans

It almost sounds like a movie title, and probably a comedy at that, but this is no laughing matter.

Mayors of Atlanta, Athens, Augusta, Brookhaven, Doraville, Savannah, and others have had the unmitigated gall to exceed their authority and threaten free Georgia citizens with fines if they don't cover their faces in public places via mandatory mask orders. Almost sounds like Sharia Law, no?

Is it a coincidence that all these Mayors are Democrats? 

Sure enough, you can read it on page 39 of his executive order where state preemption in this matter is clearly documented:

So do these mayors and city commissioners believe that Gov. Kemp's orders are merely suggestions? If so, theirs are too, one could reason. Otherwise local officials are a higher authority than the Governor.

Just look at their raw hubris:

If mayors can defy a Governor's lawful orders, then where is the rule of law?

So what else could Kemp do? There are two solutions. One is for the state to file lawsuits against these tyrants, but that would cost the taxpayers money. 

The other is the solution I prefer. Kemp goes on TV and states:

"My fellow Georgia citizens, the Democrat local officials who want to fine you for choosing to not wear a mask in public, and jail you if you refuse to pay, are just blowing hot air. I know I've already stated their orders are unenforceable, but it looks like we need to show them. Just like they've admitted to defying my orders, you defy them. Tear up any ticket you receive and post a picture of it on their city's Facebook page. These little tyrants do not have the authority to penalize your choice as a free citizen to wear or not wear a mask. I'm ordering law enforcement to not enforce any local ordinance that goes further than my executive orders."

Will we see citizens getting into confrontations with police that turn violent? That is a possibility, and all the more reason Gov. Kemp needs to nip this in the bud sooner rather than later.

In Georgia, a citizen has the right to physically resist an unlawful arrest using the least amount of force necessary: 

Blood shed over this, either that of a citizen or police officer, would be a tragic shame. But that is sometimes what happens when those in charge of police use them in an unlawful fashion.

These mayors are using the point of a gun (theirs) in your face if you show your face in public. They dress nice for TV and are all smiles, spouting their feel-good, gobbledygook  rhetoric, but they are more dangerous than they look. 

We need Gov. Kemp to forcefully defend his executive orders and shut this down now. This circus has gone on long enough.

Edit: Just learned (July 15th) that earlier today the Governor issued a new executive order which spells out that local governments cannot mandate face masks. We'll see if this finally shuts the door on the mayors' shenanigans. If you do get a ticket, comment below with the details of your story.
