    Hey Abbott: Help me Federal Gov. in managing the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in Texas after the state health department says they’ve run out of an antibody treatment proven to be the most effective against the omicron variant. Now he’s filed suit against the Sec. of Defense vaccine mandate for military personal. According to Abbott’s lawsuit, more than 220 members of the Texas Air National Guard and about 40% of the members of the Texas Army National Guard are refusing to get vaccinated — for religious reasons or otherwise. “Because the Military Vaccine Mandate will lead to the loss of these Guardsmen from Governor Abbott’s command, and the State’s militia, the harm to the State is inevitable,” the lawsuit said, while alleging the vaccine requirement was unconstitutional and a violation of an administrative law that dictates agency procedures for rolling out new policies. Who’s on first?

    Isn’t that what the National guard is for, political props and restricting voting?

    An unidentified active Guard member deployed near Brownsville was more blunt. “All we’re doing is standing down here,” he told the Times. “If someone comes up, we ask them to stop and wait, we call Border Patrol. If someone runs, we call Border Patrol. We’re basically mall cops on the border.” [The Week: January 20, 2022]
