    As I mentioned in a previous post, the demonstrators protesting the restrictions on their “rights” to congregate and not wear a mask, etc., etc. are now paying the price as Paso Robles, the land of righteous right wingers, lead the County in Covid-19 cases….9 in the last two days…just after their big demonstration…It’s not about your freedom or liberty, it’s about social responsibility….
