How about Flori-duh and governor Duh-santis?
Florida used to use the slogan – ‘Come to Florida- the rules are different here’. Guess that explains how we got into this mess.
Paraphrasing several Governors of Southern and Mid-western states: “We ain’t China or any of them sissy Yankee states, and we can fix it ourselves!”
That’s the myopic gist of chest-thumping, arrogant boasting by Republican governors and politicians, that somehow the people in their states are a more betterer kind of human being.
Lessons from stupidity are usually painful, unfortunately. At least some voters will remember those politician’s words when they’re up for re-election. But like most “conservative” brains, memory retention seems to be confined only to a region the size of a garbanzo.
If license plates are made in prison and prisons have 80% of inmates testing positive . . . who’ll be making license plates next year ? China or President Trump ?
The City of Houston/Harris County had things under control and improving until Governor Abbot over-ruled the local officials rules on masks and shut down. June 2 we had a little more than 12,000 cases and were getting around 200 new ones per day, and the daily cases had been dropping for a while. Two months later we have almost 71,000 and are recording between 1,500 and 2,000 new cases per day.
Republicans at all levels of government are doing all they can to make it necessary to hold the next election by mail, thereby making it it possible for Donnie John to at least claim that mail-in voting, if not corrupt, is at least broken because the massive surge will overwhelm the Post Office.
If it kills off thousands of citizens, they can at least rest easy knowing it won’t be any of their donor class.
I love my home state of Texas, but having some of the largest numbers of COVID cases, definitely isn’t something I want to brag about.
How about New York, which has had far more cases than those three states combined, and with the worst decisions made by its leaders? Eh? Or are we trying to cover for Cuomo?
