  • I am glad to see this. Everyone wants what is best for the country, but that does not mean that every self-declared VIP at the lowest level of municipal and county government should be able to declare my job (amd myself, I guess) to be unessential.

    Do our schools even teach the US Constitution any more?? How can low level municipal, etc officials literally and unilaterally suspend the US Constitution.

    And if it can happen so easy today, what will happen tomorrow. Where does it all stop??? Where are the pastors, who should be standing up for religious freedom?? Where are the American History school teachers??

    Have everyone, except the four people who are the subject of this article, become nothing but a flock of sheep.

    This is a very slippery slope that we are on, and few are asking any questions. My hat is off to these four who are asking questions.

  • This would have been much more convincing if they had been nude. Isn't society/government requiring us all to cover our genitals trampling on our constitutional rights. I hope this brings wearing a mask into perspective. Harvard Law is call for all of you wannabe constitutional law scholars!
