Letters to editor

I heard that the Commissioner’s meeting 12-8-21 was disrupted by a group of people who refused to don masks and that the police were asked to escort them out.

My reaction was, “No, that must be a rumor.  That wouldn’t happen in Tillamook.  We’re “law-abiden’ folk”.”

Sadly, I was wrong.  What I wanted to dismiss as rumor, turned out to be fact.

What’s become of us?  Our forebears suffered and sacrificed every day of their lives to build this wonderful country.  Today, we snivel, whimper and whine about the inconvenience of wearing a mask indoors.

If this is the stuff we’re made of, I do not rate our prospects for the future very highly.

Interesting how this letter recognizes "law abiding folks". Unfortunately many people don't use the resources readily available and lack the civic responsibility to do any homework to know that mandates are not law. Nor do they know that governor emergency and executive orders ran out a long time ago. Paying attention also reveals, that except for a handful of unconstitutional states, the rest of America is back to their old selves. Hmmm... wonder why?

Kate and her cohorts are just stringing along and continuing to deceive the misinformed and uneducated for as long as they can get away with it. So why are people still complying? Most likely due to the lack of civic responsibility, but sadly there are many reasons. Responses like this prove their scheme continues to deceive.

Funny you should say "you heard". I heard the brave citizens challenging the unlawful "mask requirement" accomplished what they set out to do and caught elected and appointed officials in the act breaking many laws. Stay tuned!
