To The Editor:
We’ve all seen the commercials on TV where people are getting respiratory illnesses from their OWN night-time breathing machines, so much so that a new machine had to be invented to sterilize these machines daily before the next use. Open-sourced information also shows that wearing a mask for less than 60 seconds causes one to rebreathe enough of their own CO2 to make themselves sick, not to mention the lack of oxygen their body and mind requires to operate properly. And now, according to Governor Holcomb, exercising our Constitutional right to NOT wear a diaper over our face is considered a “Class B misdemeanor”. He only claims there will be no “mask police” patrolling the streets because he knows he can’t LEGALLY arrest or fine people since his order is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Yet people will go along with it, because, after all, how can one exercise their rights if they don’t know them?
The Federal Government CANNOT mandate that you wear a mask and the States can ONLY mandate that you wear one on state government property. Governments cannot mandate that private businesses comply. Therefore, any business that succumbs to this tyranny is doing so at the risk of their own survival. The word boycott comes to mind. Furthermore, any law enforcement officer or elected official has no business being such if they don’t have knowledge of one’s Constitutional rights!
If one wants to wear a mask that is their choice. But I am ashamed and appalled at anyone who doesn’t respect the rights of those who choose NOT to wear one! If mask wearers are so certain their masks are protecting them, why are they stomping on the rights of those who do not? This “free” country is NOT about Mob Rule! In the words of George Floyd “I can’t breathe”!
In God’s Word everything has meaning. 2020 is the year 5780 on the Hebrew calendar. It translates to the Hebrew word PEY, meaning “mouth” or “breath”. This has been a year with a massive attack on our right to “breathe” as well as our “free speech”!
