What’s with these politicians a year into a pandemic acting like Covid-19 is not a big deal? How can you lift the mask mandate and open your state 100%???? I could understand if there were no new cases and 70% plus have been vaccinated, but Texas isn’t anywhere near those milestones. According to the New York Times tracker, Texas had over 7000 new cases and 274 deaths from Covid in the last 24 hours. I can’t believe the leadership is really THAT stupid, so my only alternative is to believe that they are purposefully trying to kill people.
So, what set of people are most likely to die from Covid? Blacks, hispanics, and the elderly. Texas is trying to passive-aggressively kill as many blacks, hispanics, and elderly people as they can. That’s the only explanation I can come up with for doing what they’ve done. And I’m sure other leaders in other states (quite possibly my own) will do the same. It looks like this thing is not going away any time soon. Thank you for reading my very depressing 77th blog.
