I have just had a discussion on Facebook with someone I don’t know – there was a post about the Supreme Court decision regarding abortion laws, wherein it was stated that each person has a right to make decisions about their lives, health, etc. The commentor said “just as she should have the right whether to wear a mask or not because this is the land of the free”.
My comment was yes, she does, if she does not care about affecting other people. She called it snide – and maybe it was a bit, although I wasn’t really thinking snidely when I said it. So I asked what the big deal was. Response: “it’s the land of the free”.
Does that then mean I don’t have to follow rules, obey laws, get a driver’s license, pay my taxes, wait for stores to open before I crash in? Because it’s the land of the free and I choose not to?
Sounds to me like some people either just do not like being told to do something – or some people are following Trump’s lead because he told them he knows everything – and they’ve swallowed that line.
Kinda like the person I know who posted “who agrees that it’s the media that causing racism division?” Because I guess it’s easier to blame the media than the guy you voted for and what has been inherent in our history for many years.
Boy, I just don’t understand people anymore.
