State employees ordered to wear masks during meetings. Online meetings they are attending from home.

| August 12, 2020

The head of the Wisconsin DNR sent out an e-mail recently reminding employees of the Governor’s mask mandate. It also pointed out that;

“Also, wear your mask, even if you are home, to participate in a virtual meeting that involves being seen — such as on Zoom or another video-conferencing platform — by non-DNR staff,” Cole told his employees. “Set the safety example which shows you as a DNR public service employee care about the safety and health of others.”

So there you have it. Working from home, alone in the house, but you’re on a Zoom meeting? Better mask up. This COVID has morphed into a computer transmissible virus. The CDC has not prepared me for that. Dr. Fauci! Why have you forsaken me?!?

If you’re using Zoom for your state meetings, COVID-19 is the least of your worries.


Chicoms will have all your issues and office politics then.

This reminds of the old army legend about the General who decided to tell his subordinates to let the troops know that a lunar eclipse would take place at 0200 if they wanted to see it. By the time his “suggestion” worked its way down the chain of command it had turned into mandatory training in full battle rattle with concurrent training sessions set up


Uggghh. How I yearn for heady days of February 2020.

How do you smoke pot if you are wearing a mask?

Tough one.


It being Wisconsin, someone should remind the governor it makes it hard to drink beer.

Does that mean they have to wear pants too?


Skivvies only


Only if you wear this with the skivvies, Graybeard. (grin)

The proud but humble woman owned business that sells software to the federal government formerly located on Wilson Lane in Bethesda Maryland was a pioneer in working from home, social distancing from employees (and pesky government inspectors) and the implementation of mandatory mask wearing. That last one just became a requirement after the company Vice President had some leftover Chipotle Atomic Burritos for breakfast, and blew up the conference room. The blast was toxic it knocked the door off of the mailbox at the curb. Talk about a hostile work environment.


No Daniel, NO!!!

This is all about virtue-signaling and making a good “show.”

It’s just a mask. And it’s for the “greater good!” Now, be a compliant little sheep!


Naw Cryppie, we are more advanced here in Cheesehead land due to the Communist Chinese Virus.

I introduce this: (smile)

Methinks you’re going to be on a certain Ex-PH2’s “list”, amigo. (smile)


Not a good idea to poke the “Mama Bear”, tho in the grand scheme of things, I don’t think M’Lady gives a rat’s hinny about the National Felon League.

On the other hand a big cheer of GO ARMY BEAT NAVY is subject to get her attention!

Will they be able to zoom and view porn hub at the same time?


“The head of the Wisconsin DNR sent out an e-mail recently reminding employees of the Governor’s mask mandate.”

Interesting. I live here in the Cheesehead state, and here are some of the original rules/orders/mandates put out by Evers concerning mask wearing.

“Under Evers’ order, face masks will be required for anyone age 5 or older while indoors except at a private residence.”

“Other exemptions include members of the state Legislature and the state judiciary, as well as eating and drinking, for speakers at religious services, reporters delivering news reports and people who have breathing issues, among others.”

No where does it say that you have to wear a mask, at home, while video tele-conferencing.

Power grab by DNR Secretary Preston?


I thought DNR meant something else.

In the case of Wisconsin’s video conference mask mandate, I would think it would stand for “Do Not Resuscitate”.





Which is to say

Go f##k a squirrel.

Got an email from one of the hams I know with a list for the virus safety. One was to put a mask over the mike and sit 6 feet from the table. I forgot the others and I should have put it in the Archive with all the other garbage.

When I first saw this story I was sure someone got trolled 1000% by their staff.

I’m still not sure that isn’t the case, but no one has come out and said anything to contradict the story….sooooooooooo….

I’ll explain it to everyone one more time. My mask protects ME, not YOU. In point of fact, the literature on cloth masks is now showing that cloth masks protect no one, but hey…who am I to argue with the “$cience”…LOL


Uhh, well, no.

There’s a great deal we do not know about this virus. But I am almost certin that it is not transmittable via the internet. Unless all those computers have some sort of unknown secret something in them placed by the same guys who made the virus that allows the unimaginable transmission of the germ they sent to us via electronic device. If that is the case, maybe we should all mask up every time we use our computers. Or any other device. Sure.

Why did I immediately think of this when I read the article?
