Can the government MAKE you wear any specific item of clothing?

    A lot of us don't see governors, judges, and mayors having legal authority to mandate us to wear a mask, as they don't have any statute to back that bullshit up. But lets take it a step further - does the government have the authority / power to compel you to wear any type or individual piece of clothing? Would it pass Constitutional muster if the Texas legislature, for example, made it a law for EVERYONE to wear a red arm band on their left arm, or their right arm if they do not have a left arm? How about the Houston city council - lets say they made it a law that you MUST wear a black outer shirt whenever you are in a public space. Or maybe Congress passes a law that says that you MUST wear a United States flag patch on your shoulder? Where is the line for the government to dictate what you can and cannot do, and what you must or must not do?

    Please don't wear a mask. It makes the 2A people wet their panties in fear that the government is coming for their guns next.

    Please don't wear masks, as it makes the 2A people wet their panties thinking that translates to the government coming for their guns next.

    You take this chip.

    You allow AI in your home.

    You give up all your guns.

    The government can do anything it wants and the future is grim for freedom. Hell, they have most of the children and the TV has become the devils easy work.

    AI is coming.... evil will control it.

    By that logic, are you a 2A person?

    OBTW, it's not about the mask. It's about due process in the end. Can .Gov arbitrarily make a rule that governs individual behavior without due process?

    In some instances yet, but four months later, to make an arbitrary rules is a bit capricious.

    The local and state governments have been allowed by voters to reach the point where they think that they are accountable to no one. Just google how many local officials have been arrested and prosecuted by the Justice Department in the past 10 years; this would represent about 5% of the problem.

    These same people feel that they can impose ordinances on the public without cause or review and, if sued, they will just write a check from the taxpayers money.

    In the past 20 years I have voted for exactly one incumbent city council member, County Commisioner, Mayor or Judge. Public officers were meant to be short term, part time elected officials, not politicians.

    These are the people who will make you wear what they think is appropriate.

    If we remember our history, Hitler forced all Jews to wear a Star of David, to let everyone know they were Jewish on their clothing. Remember, he followed up with tattooing numbers on their arms. He also followed up gassing and burning about six million of the Jewish population in Europe.

    Now that may seem a bit extreme and over-reaching, in trying to "enforce" and order to wear a mask in public, but it all starts somewhere.

    Phuck this mask enforcement!

    Legally they shouldn't order items of clothing. In reality, they can do anything & your only recourse ultimately is to die trying to stop it.

    I shouldn't have to pay taxes so a large percentage of our country can collect disability. But I'm not ready to die so I comply.
