A woman was walking her dog in a park. Suddenly, a big dog came running toward her. Eventually, the big dog's owner retrieved his dog. When the woman complained that the man should have his dog on a leash, the man replied, "You liberals think you own the world."

Although his dog had bitten people before, he perceived the requirement of putting his dog on a leash as a violation of his freedom. Like many conservatives, he felt the same way about mask requirements.
