It makes me a bit crazy when these types want to wave the flag over their "rights" as if they were completely unfettered. No rights are absolute. Free speech, for example, has dozens of exceptions, including one for when the speech might endanger others (yelling Fire in a crowded movie theater when there isn't one). Nearly all "rights" end where they begin to infringe on other people's and refusing to wear a mask certainly infringes on other people's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Fortunately, our very Red state just issued an order from the governor for mandatory masks, although a few people still defy it. SMH
