Editor,

When people say they have the right to do certain things or own certain things what does that mean. What rights do we really have, do they have the right to do something or own something that endangered other people’s rights. Certain people say they have the right to not get vaccinated. I might say this may be true if they stay away from other people and not just 6 feet. Do they have the right to endanger their own families I’m not sure, children under 12 are at the mercy of the people around them they have no choice? Some people on airplanes and businesses say they have the right to not wear a mask when doing business in these places, I think not. People have rights when those rights don’t endanger other people and their rights

Let’s put this simple, millions of people were dying of the virus until most people got vaccinated and the rate of sickness and death went down, then the virus returned going after the unvaccinated, 98% of the people dying of this virus now are unvaccinated. These unvaccinated people are responsible for the deaths of thousands of people and responsible for spreading the virus to the vaccinated who unknowingly can spread it to their children. When a virus as deadly as this one is present and the only thing that will attack it is the vaccine, “I have the right” has a completely different definition. We need you to rethink this and get your shot.

Mr. Nice, millions of people have and will continue to die as a result of vehicle accidents, drunk drivers, drug overdoses (both legal and illegal drugs) or their combination. In addition, nearly half a million adverse events have been associated with jab. Don’t people have the right to not be exposed to these every day events? Don’t we need people to rethink and stop driving, drinking, and doing drugs, and taking the jab?

Meanwhile, let’s not forget that the powers-that-be are continuing to release convicted felons into the general population due to “overcrowding.” Millions of people have died and will continue to die due to these actions. Do these criminals have a right to endanger others? We need people to rethink and stop releasing convicted felons into the general population.

Meanwhile, the maskless (and we’re assuming jabbed) fleeing from Texas Democrat super spreaders have managed to infect six of their fellow lawmakers, a Pelosi aide and a White House official with COVID. And even caused Harris to be checked for contamination.
