    You say he could have handled it "so many different ways without causing panic "
    But when asked for examples you run and hide.
    That only makes you look silly and exposes the ignorance of your assertion.

    I posted this in Football forum but thought I'd put it here for others...

    So glad and proud of The University for moving forward with football.
    Local piece came out last night with headline "UT Begins Football Season Saturday, But Should They?"

    Yes, they should and here is but one major reason why..
    Using the stated figure of 403 area deaths and a rough metro area population figure of 2.1 mil gives the Austin metro area a covid mortality rate of appx. .000192.
    Let me restate this for those bad with #s...
    That is .000192
    .0192%
    Not 1.9%
    .019%
    For sooner....that's 1.9% of 1%
    For aggy....let's just say a tiny portion and not use numbers

    Let's all enjoy some ball now

    I'm not running and hiding. I'm just saying that he could have handled it differently wo looking stupid. I'm not the President so I don't need to give examples. There are plenty of governors in the US that handled it quite well. My state being one.

    Well he didn't say "its going to go away" , He didn't say hyrdochloroquine is a miracle drug ("its helped millions of people, including me"), His rally in Tulsa was a shitshow.........you can't deny he downplayed it to protect himself. I know you will say he didn't. You defend him like Dems defend Obama...

    God bless you sir.....

    I don't believe for 1 minute that Trump took it. It was a "look I'm doing something" comment. Then it came out that for very few people that is effective (i'm glad it worked for you) for most it is ineffective and he had to do is famous walk back "Well I took it...It's working on millions of people" Where are those MILLIONS????

    Check out the data below that shows the covid crisis in Texas has been falling since early July in terms of cases (which corresponds to peak deaths in mid-to-late July).

    Only applies to PA, and the state will probably appeal. But yes, the dam seems to be breaking in terms of these never ending, rule by decree emergency powers that governors have used.

    Understood. But like with Chase, I think it was, telling workers to get back to the office, others are following suit. Yes, the dam is breaking.

    When is Abbott going to stop this BS? I've mentioned before I work in retail with over 540 employees serving 30,000+ customers per week. Our last confirmed covid case was on AUGUST 4th! This is stupid.

    After the election. He doesn’t want to take the heat before the election. Media won’t care afterwards.

    Note state of Texas (and Chron reporting it) fixed the positivity rate issue.
