Letter: Freedom or freedumb?

Ralph writes, "There are six bills that address COVID vaccinations and the right of North Dakota residents to continue to spread the “hoax” of COVID-19 to their neighbors. Over 1,700 people have died from COVID in North Dakota. Good thing it’s a “hoax” or we might have lost more people. Freedumb."

Letter to the editor FSA

Hey North Dakota! There’s a lot of freedom/freedumb to be discussed in the upcoming special session. It's not going to be free but a lot of it sure seems dumb.

There are currently two bills in the house delayed bills committee that prevent North Dakota schools from teaching critical race theory. A theory that is not being taught in any North Dakota public school. Freedumb.

There are six bills that address COVID vaccinations and the right of North Dakota residents to continue to spread the “hoax” of COVID-19 to their neighbors. Over 1,700 people have died from COVID in North Dakota. Good thing it’s a “hoax” or we might have lost more people. Freedumb.

There are two bills related to the use of drugs like ivermectin or other off-label drugs to treat COVID. I guess the Legislature would like people to check out Facebook or their crazy uncle for their prescriptions. Heck, Donald Trump said injecting disinfectants might work. The good thing is you can sue your doctor, pharmacist or hospital if they refuse to let you do it. Freedumb.

There are two bills related to voter fraud counter measures. Obviously there must have been fraud. There’s no way us smart North Dakota people voted for the candidates proposing this legislation. Freedumb.

And finally, it’s nice to see a bill that recognizes parents as the chief stakeholder in the education of their child. Guess what? They have always been the chief stakeholder. That doesn’t give them the right to go to a school board meeting and scream at the school board, or show up at school and scream at the administration or teachers. Freedumb.
