Well the sorry Governor of Texas is forcing his executive orders over the whole state.

I am watching the Mayor of Houston now on tv.

The Mayor of Houston and the County Judge did a great job.

They closed the rodeo in February which is a big deal in Houston.

We know Trump is behind this.


He needs the economy back up and running.

My ass is staying on the farm.

I am close to Austin but I not about to go there.

We were getting this under control now Trump and his Republican ass kissers will get more people sick and dead.

Y'all stay safe.

1. My Georgia governor can't make me leave home

I'm sticking to short runs for groceries and prescription refills. My yard is calling me...time to start the garden, clean up from the mess winter left behind, enjoying being out in the sunshine.

10. I am just a few miles below the Fl./Ga. line

I thought I might run up to Thomasville this week for a haircut, a tattoo, catch a movie, and eat at a cheap buffet.

I know what you are saying. DeSantis will not get me out of the house either. I will be self quarantining until it is safe to stop.

These governors want to open the States when NOTHING has changed. The virus is not less deadly or contagious, There is no prevention or treatment, and there is not system in place for mass testing and isolating the infected. So that means that either the previous self-isolation was a huge waste or effort and money, or that we are bound to pay a premium price in lives to get our hair trimmed.

These know, that once the stay home orders are lifted, they will not be reinstated no matter how devastating the virus becomes. They are too short-sighted and greedy to see that they are going to wreck the nation.

26. i grew up on Church Street

My parents moved to Jefferson Avenue, sometime in the early '80's when the city took their property to expanded the police/fire departments. I don't remember what their house number was on Jefferson.

The Houston Mayor was crying.

He and County Judge worked so hard.

Both Democrats.

7. I am in North Houston and I keep talking to people who are itching to get out.

They just can't wait till the orders are lifted fully.

I mention that there will be a second wave of infections if we lift it to early or incorrectly and they just think I am crazy.

Oh well, I got my masks...I'll keep doing what I do.

I expect to get some assholes confronting me if I go out shopping but I don't care so long as they are six feet away I'll be cool.

24. The beaches were flooded with people this weekend and no PPE.

Texas has no state income tax. It makes it’s money through oil revenues, property taxes, and sales tax. All three are way down so we are headed for BIG TROUBLE!!!

8. Too much opening at once

I would have been OK if it had been retail at 25% capacity (with no open dressing rooms) but I think theater, in-person dining is a mistake.

17. Usurping city control.

I'm thinking that by this time next month hospitals are going to be slammed and we'll be trying to find a place for mass graves like New York.

This is a typical evil repub move. To hell with people, business is more important.

I just hope my friends and family don't need hospital care for some serious ailment like cardio or some other oldster need.

20. trump and abbott are turning Texas bluer,

Because this will backfire on them when a lot more people become ill, some seriously ill. They may have lawsuits to worry about . Worsening the virus situation will only make more people run from trump and republicans, no matter how much they try to lie their way out of it.

Now I know why the Lt. Gov. thought there were more important things than living, in Texas.

28. If they had not closed down the Rodeo in Feb, we would have twice the cases,

maybe more.

Expect to see a second wave come through here in the next couple months.

29. The rodeo would have infected a lot of people.

They made the tough call.

People are going to back to normal.

Houston and Harris County did well.

How many people are going to wear masks now.

I bet Texas Medical Center will be full.

30. People are not wearing mask in my area. Maybe 5% are masked.

It is as if they are oblivious to the virus. I spoke with a gentleman who looked to be in his 60's or 70's and he did not seem concerned at all. He was eyeballing my wife and I up and down as we were both masked and gloved. He was cordial enough and just acted like he was passing time, but I could tell he was skeptical.

We will just keep on keeping on until the science tells me otherwise.
