Hey, lyin’ Mike. A fun fact for you. FEMA data says that the COVID positivity rate among migrants is lower than the rate in the general population of Texas. Sounds like a good reason to deal off Texans and not let them into the rest of the USA, doesn’t it?!
I thought the Governor of TX lifted the mask mandate and declared everything open.
I know, I know, linking to gov.texas.gov is one of those “purely leftist” leaning web sites- right?
If that is the case then why is it an issue for anyone who tests positive to go to TX?
I’ve noticed some NHL games have been postponed, not due to actual infections but due to exposure to somebody who either tested positive or was contact traced to somebody who tested positive. That puts a player into the NHL’s covid policy which means they are unavailable to practice, play, workout or anything at team facilities until everyone is sure the player isn’t infected. I’m in MA so I follow the Bruins, but as a hockey fan and somebody who played the sport, I also pay attention to the rest of the league. While there have been players who’ve tested positive there are more players who entered the covid protocol who didn’t ultimately test positive. And as far as I’m aware not a single player has developed any serious symptoms. Most seem to not get sick at all. Obviously nobody has been hospitalized, vented or died. It seems like they’ve taken as many precautions as possible and given the fact that the sport discourages social distancing (God, I miss hitting people!) things have gone exceptionally well.
Now, about those poor folks crossing the border with covid…yeah, that’s not going to be a successful.
Like Nicholson’s character might say, “Lester, you can’t handle the Truth!”
We are about a year and a quarter into the pandemic and we STILL do not have cheap reliable tests available. It would be nice if we applied some socialist, communist funding in that area. Maybe even some priority.
I know, I know. “If you do more testing, you get more cases.”
And anyway, “We want them infected.”
Mike Lester is so concerned about people needlessly spreading covid-19 that he drew tons of comics criticizing Il Douche’s Super-Spreader tour…...…Oh wait, no he didn’t.
Aren’t conservatives supposed to be against COVID testing anyway?
@ “Oggi” above … Thanks for giving us nothing ( but the Facts! )….
Besides your non-stop whining complaints, do you have a different solution, Mike? Maybe we should just shoot ’em all? Build a wall? Something about all the rope in Texas? I think your right-wing pals like Oggi, above, would go with doubling down on the efficacies of heavy-handed cruelty.
After all, like Oggi says, they’re just “illegals”, not people. See, when you de-humanize them, then the dirty work comes easy, and I’m sure there are plenty of like-minded patriots who’d love to do their part.
Sounds like a better use of the convention center than is being used for now, besides, most of the positive cases are already in the US and were brought over from Europe. Seems to be more of a risk to the kids (who are supposed to be resistant, according to RW sources) than anyone else. But Mike doesn’t miss a chance to present a disingenuous argument.
Is there a bucket big enough for Trump’s head? No? Too bad.
Hypocrite$, thy name is Leftist$/Globalist$.
The ILLEGALS are the Trumpsters who invaded the capital, the ILLEGALS are the GOP Party who completely ignores, but hires immigrants. THE ILLEGALS ARE TRUMP, BANNON,McConnell, .Stone, Green, Cruz, Jordan, and the rest of the dumbest clown circus they brought in town! When you thought you saw and heard it all, you didn’t! Everyday ignorant statements, that are laughable! They can always dish it out but they can’t take it! Deflection, investigation, Sue, there’s no end to their stalling, BECAUSE THEY GOT NOTHING!
To all the hard core leftists triggered by the truth – the surge of illegal crossers will bring more diseases, not just Chinese flu, to our already distressed country. If you are so welcoming to them, why not go to the border and bring at least a dozen of them to live with you, covid or no covid tests done. I dare all of you!
FYI, I’m an Asian female – Filipino with Chinese, Malay, and Spanish ancestry. My family and I came here LEGALLY, passing the English language, health, and other tests and eventually became US citizens. We did not sneak in through the open borders.
Many immigrant applicants I know are waiting patiently in their home country for years and years, some up to 10 long years for their papers to be approved but these illegal crossers who come from all over the world, not just South America, are given priority and special treatment over legal immigrants. One of my friends who couldn’t wait anymore applied to Canada and got accepted within 2 years.
8 mass murder victims in Lester’s home state and Mikey can’t be bothered.
