There was a 30 year old guy on the tv today who went to a crowded bar & 2 days later he was feeling achy, on his way to 7 days in the hospital.
And his mother is dead (not really, made that up, wishing his mother good health & long life, but it could have turned out that way.)

Soon the masked crusaders for justice will have to stand your ground. Your right to go maskless ends the second you are out of your home breathing OUR air.

or kill yourselves if you feel like it.
Your body, your choice.
When you endanger the health and lives of the rest of us because you are so ignorant, stupid, and lacking in common sense that it is a miracle that you can walk and breathe at the same time, we need to take measures to protect ourselves from you.
Thank the goddess we are not going through an Ebola pandemic right now, with so much conservative stupid running wild in the streets.
“I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it.”- John Stuart Mill
The truth of that quote is now set in stone, as the US sinks deeper into the quicksand of this RW sponsored pandemic.
“A lie doesn't become truth, wrong doesn't become right, and evil doesn't become good, just because it's accepted by a majority.” ~ Booker T. Washington
The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.” Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.

I never thought I would live to hear them chant that. 🙂
They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.
National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

Leave their masks home or whatever, and put their naked faces where their loud mouths are. Go visit sick coronavirus patients. Go to quarantined homes and bring food and comfort to the sick there. They should go work at meat packing factories.
They obviously don’t care if they get sick, they should do something of value instead of stealing a pro choice slogan and flapping their gums.

People (Trumpers for the most part), even those who should know better, are screaming bloody murder, first over the shutdown, then over masks. They believe it is all overblown, a hoax, or a plan to shut them out somehow.
On the other hand, their are those who were Trump supporters who have changed their minds on this issue alone. A neighbor, who once strongly supported Trump, now loathes him. I need to mention here, that she is a former respiratory therapist and she is immuno compromised. Nothing like having first hand knowledge of how a ventalator is placed in the body and how it works, plus knowing that survival is unlikely to clarify the mind.
You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here.
