    It won't be. But we need to remember that he took powers not granted to him in the Texas Constitution. He wasn't as bad as CA, NY, and MI, but Abbott has exposed that he doesn't prioritize liberty and/or consultation of more representatives before making significant restrictions on people.

    That may be true, but few will care if the underlying issue is dead.

    Those who lost their business or jobs will care regardless if covid is around.

    Those who lost their businesses will care. Those who lost their jobs but then found jobs and are basically ok in 2022 won't care enough to decide their vote on it. We have very short memories. Remember Trump's Covid comments to Bob Woodward? That was a week ago, and it's ancient history.

    If you look at the comments, data is based on Europe cases thus the survival rates even higher now.

    I don't want to be on the twitter, but I do like these graphics and how they seem to be easily posted here. But, I can't easily copy them to post elsewhere.

    Tonight, Fox 17 Nashville reported that a congressman is now wanting answers for the mayor’s decision to close bars and restaurants versus construction where cases were in the 1,000’s. There was no apology and they showed the mayor on a news conference at the time lying about the numbers. Now that he is caught, guess who he blames?







    Trump told him to. You can’t make this up.

    The modeling experts said a few weeks ago the US would have 2000 daily deaths by Election Day and 3000 by end of year. Just a bit outside...

    The failure to hold experts to account or at least answer for it when they're wrong is the biggest reason people don't trust experts as much.

    My point is the narrative CNN promoted was intentionally false. They said the station apologized to kill the story. The didn’t apologize and a US Congressman from a Tennessee is on it.

    I get it. Just saying it is typical to hear a congressman wanting answers. Do they ever get answers? If so, then what? Nothing, usually. That's why I yawned.

    I'm not going to be in a big hurry to take the vaccine either. Vaccines are dangerous - not in the "Jenny Mccarthy-says-it-causes-autism" sense but in the "you-don't-rush-this-****-and-cut-corners" sense. I'll let the idiots who think Covid is the latter-day Black Plague take the vaccine and be the guinea pigs. The evidence strongly suggests that it isn't anywhere near that deadly, and I'm not gonna act like it says the opposite.

    I won't take it, period, because Covid is a mild virus, at best, for most people. Brand new virus that has not reached the havoc as predicted. Total BS.

    Two weeks since school started in classrooms in Montgomery county. No increase in cases.

    5 days a week hybrid for my 5th grader. Week 3 of classes. No "cases" I am aware of as I am sure they would lockdown the entire district over 1 "case".

    The CDC has ping-ponged more than a lottery ball. NOBODY with a functioning brain cell would rate them highly. And given the idiots still refusing to let their State's businesses open, it stands to reason that people are not going to be overly effusive in praise of State or local officials.

    But hey, why let that get in the way of your selective parsing of the data (especially without even linking to the full study).

    If I were in a high risk category I might have a different view and perhaps would chance I will not be getting it .

    CDC is a POS
    The CDC told CNN that it knows of 1,600 flights in the first eight months of the year where a person who may have had the virus was present. Up to 10,900 people may have been within the six-foot transmission range of that person during these flights, according to the agency.
    CDC flags 1600 flights where person on board may have had COVID-19

    May??

    I'm not a doctor or scientist so take this for what its worth but to me if too many ppl take these new vaccines will it not mutate itself and over time we have the same issue we have with the seasonal flu?

    I'm not being selective with anything. They are just charts released by the Pew Research Center. But hey, to each his own...:deadhorse:

    So, the virus figured out a way around the masks and other BS? Okay. But still not more deadly.
