Earlier this week, Texas Governor Gregg Abbot announced that his state was opening up– getting rid of the statewide mask-mandate, telling businesses they could open, and banning lesser municipalities from creating or enforcing their own mask-mandates. To the consternation of liberals everywhere.
Mayors and county judges in some of Texas’ largest urban areas criticized Gov. Greg Abbott over his decision to lift the statewide face mask mandate next week, saying it contradicts health officials’ advice as infections continue to spread throughout the state, which averaged over 200 reported deaths a day over the last week.
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, a fellow Republican, called Abbott’s order “premature” and asked him to allow more people to get the vaccine.
“I am calling on Gov. Abbott to open up additional vaccine tier categories so that more people are eligible to get a vaccine if they want one,” Price said in a statement. “As the state’s directive has changed, so must our response. Now, more than ever, vaccines and testing must be readily available.”Texas’ local officials blast Gov. Greg Abbott for “irresponsible action” of lifting coronavirus restrictions
Since we’ve been told that nothing changes after getting the vaccine, the pleas for getting more vaccine first or other steps are pretty empty.
Speaking of Texas, some alumni are not happy with some college getting rid of a famous song:
“The Eyes of Texas” is a song traditionally played at the end of football games, with players remaining on the field to sing the song along with the fans. Recently, all the players except the quarterback left the field.“The Eyes of Texas is non-negotiable. If it is not kept and fully embraced, I will not be donating any additional money to athletics or the university or attending any events.”
The link’s quote was from the alumnus.
Things are always interesting in Texas.
