NORM PETERSEN, San Clemente
The letter from Ms. Fafaglia uses the familiar “you have blood on your hands” type of rhetoric that has no basis in science. Reasonable people should be able to reasonably disagree.
Perfectly healthy people do not need to quarantine, and we should be free to make that choice for ourselves. It’s called freedom. There’s no need to denigrate your neighbors because they have a differing view. Sadly, this is now the way liberals debate.
Newsom is a hypocrite for dining out last year with upwards of 30 people, all maskless no less, while mandating no dining out for his “royal subjects.”
Public schools are still not fully open after more than a year, but Newsom’s kids have been in their private school classrooms the whole time. His Aunt Nancy (Pelosi) got her hair done in a salon while the rest of us were learning to cut our own hair.
These are the reasons people are pushing back.
Yes, “mandates from the governor for the common good” absolutely infringe on our freedom. It’s an example of why our country’s founders risked everything to escape a monarchy.
I am glad Ms. Fafaglia is alive today. If the vaccine is the reason, as she says, she failed to thank President Trump. Likely just an oversight.
