Well apparently, Greg Abbott extended the disaster declaration. While it is most certainly too little too late, we are now headed for a state of unknown in our areas. While he has extended the declaration, he is still going on with the opening of the government which is crazy. Take a second to think about this. He is telling people that we have to extend the declaration, but he is still opening the state back up. https://www.kltv.com/2020/05/13/gov-abbott-covid-disaster-declaration-extended-all-texas-counties/
We now have nurses talking about troubling spikes in cases of COVID-19. Some like the man in the video below detail situations that we really haven’t seen in this state. https://www.kvue.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/austin-coronavirus-nurse-fight-against-covid-19/269-94ac9c6e-e66b-4cb3-83e6-df0d6c13bcf9
It’s kind of sad when you think about it. At this moment we have mayors who are fighting their hardest to keep cities like Dallas, Austin and other large cities safe while Paxton our AG is going around threatening them for trying to keep Texans safe. The government opened too soon, they were shielding people from getting in trouble for breaking the laws which were put in place to contain this virus. This created a vacuum of confusion. There were no real consequences for people who did not go by the laws which were never enforced because the Republicans wanted to play God.
Just this weekend I reported a situation where hundreds of people were found at one of our local parks without any protective wear.
While some of our leaders fell on the side of clueless, some of the establishments aired on the side of safety. Places like Ross and Cinemark refused to open due to the risk of COVID-19. If you look at the way admission was being handled at the parks, you knew there were still large problems in terms of this virus. There was no human contact with the worker as they waved people through.
Just a week ago people were standing on the outside of the Texas State Capitol with signs wanting to return to work and get hair cuts. Well, I hope it was worth it. I hope that hair cut was worth the cup of pain that is now following because they couldn’t learn how to trim dead hair. This virus isn’t going to be the death of us, the people in office will be the death of us because they are too busy playing God.
