It’s hypocrisy at its finest and it shows up everywhere Democrats are attempting to enforce random mitigation measures for COVID-19. These measures are almost always disobeyed by the Democrats trying to enforce them on everyone else. That’s us, the little people.

For example, Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl had voted to ban outdoor dining in Los Angeles, as originally reported by Fox11. However, shortly after making the deciding vote to ban outdoor dining, she then went to Il Forno, one of her favorite restaurants for a dinner before the ban she imposed on Los Angelinos went into effect.

Kuehl said the reason she voted to ban outdoor dining was because “this is a serious health emergency and we must take it seriously.”

“The servers are not protected from us, and they’re not protected from their other tables that they’re serving at that particular time, plus all the hours in which they’re working,” she added.

Her actions are eerily familiar to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s decision to eat with friends at the fine dining restaurant French Laundry in Napa Valley, and then immediately apologize afterwards when he was caught.

restaurant owner who mocked Newsom’s widely criticized restaurant outing said the lockdown restrictions are killing small businesses in California and across the country.

Alex Jordan, the owner of Eat at Joe’s Restaurant in Redondo Beach, jabbed at Newsom by hanging a “French Laundry” banner outside his business. The governor was forced to apologize earlier this month after he was photographed dining at the luxury restaurant with a large group, in violation of his own guidelines.…The governor was forced to apologize earlier this month after he was photographed dining at the luxury restaurant with a large group, in violation of his own guidelines.

Study finds harmful levels of ‘forever chemicals’ in popular bandage brands

A new consumer study tested several brands of bandages and found higher levels of fluorine in bandages from Band-Aid, CVS Health, Walmart, Rite Aid, Target and Curad, which contain harmful levels of “forever chemicals,” also known as PFAS.

The study by Mamavation and Environmental Health News revealed that out of 40 bandages from 18 different brands, 26 contained organic fluorine, an indicator of PFAS.

“Because bandages are placed upon open wounds, it’s troubling to learn that they may be also exposing children and adults to PFAS,” said Dr. Linda S. Birnbaum, the study’s co-author and the former director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and National Toxicology Program.

News Nation reports that the study found the chemicals present in the adhesive part of the bandages. Mamavation said some brands likely used the PFAS in bandages “for their waterproof qualities.”

“It’s obvious from the data that PFAS are not needed for wound care, so it’s important that the industry remove their presence to protect the public from PFAS and opt instead for PFAS-free materials,” Birnbaum said.

According to the study, the chemicals are linked to several health effects, including “reduced immune system, vaccine response, developmental and learning problems for infants and children, certain cancers, lowered fertility, and endocrine disruption.”

While the exposure risk to PFAS through the skin isn’t clear, skin exposure “poses similar health risks” as eating or drinking food contaminated with PFAS, according to a previous study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
