Texas Governor Declares Texans Fit for Guinea Pig Role

The Governor of the State of Texas is allowing businesses, including barber shops, to reopen. Since barber shops can scarcely function with distancing controls in place, I assume this means without any such controls. Other states are to follow.

I guess we should thank the Republican governors supporting Donald Trump for volunteering to be guinea pigs for this pandemic.

Since (a) we still do not have enough test kits available to determine an accurate count of such cases and (b) I do not trust these shitweasel politicians to report accurate counts even if they were, we will only have the numbers of deaths in Texas as a measure of their success or failure. Shitweasel politicians are always willing to send the able-bodied into wars, disease hotbeds, etc. as long as they themselves and their families are not at risk.

Interestingly, someone looked up the normal range of deaths for the months of the pandemic, nationwide, and that number is definitely not normal, that is it isn’t in the range of the numbers of people who would die over such a period. Interestingly the “overage” is about twice the number of COVID-19 deaths, so either those deaths are being under reported or there are secondary causes for these “extra” deaths, such as medical facilities being full of coronavirus patients and not enough care is available to go around to everyone.

  1. I tend to think your last two thoughts about the over-burdened medical facilities and the lack of available care is spot-on. Most of us have NO CLUE (except what the news media reports) of the true conditions.

    BTW, I hope you won’t mind, but I’m sharing a link from Scottie’s blog. The picture says it all, but scroll down to the bottom and read the comments made by one of the customers.

    • You can link to Scottie anytime. I am not following his blog at the moment as I couldn’t keep up with the traffic (my Inbox is always full!).

      • I ended up writing a post on the Colorado fiasco. Sheesh! Us “old folk” don’t have a chance.

        (BTW, appreciate what you say about your Inbox … I tend to have the same problem.)

  2. I often think Steve that Texas politics influences the U.S. way too much. And today we are primarily Hispanic! Figure that one in comparison and contrast to the rest of the nation! HAH! 🤔
