We're actually holding our shiat together, somewhat, here in Houston.  There's still plenty of dumbasses so I really don't know how.  I think we're about to be hosed in Nov/Dec.

We need to boot out Trump and have a National Mask Up Law.

It's really the only way.

"I'm declaring open season on the virus. Every Texan is hereby authorized to shoot the virus out of the air" is something I expect the governor to announce any day.

It's about 75% masked in Katy, and that's only because 77449 spent most of the year with the most cases of any zip code.  The type of person who lives in Katy is the type of person to treat life like a get-rich-quick scheme anyway.

Hidalgo has done jack shiat. Let me tell you something. I work a lot with the County and they are not really doing anything. Their Contact Tracing team operates mostly on folding tables crammed in a large open room or in enclosed offices with 2-3 people with no social distancing going on. This is your CONTACT TRACING TEAM, which should be exhibiting the highest standard possible. In talking with them also, they admittedly said that the protests set back their efforts enormously. What specifically has Hidalgo done that the people of Houston have not done themselves?

If they'd stop testing for coronavirus, they wouldn't have so many cases.

They did, but a mask mandate was never going to have legs. It ended up backfiring because it gave the opportunity for our governor to strike it down which a good amount of people interpreted as "You don't need to wear a mask." Had they continued down the path of educating and calling for it, I feel that it would have been the better path. Despite that however, I cannot really criticize that too much, but the fact remains - she has not done anything to impact the spread of COVID here. You can thank much of our recovery numbers to the Medical Center and UTMB which are extremely prepared.

lilplatinum: Well she tried to do a mask mandate early before governor gimp shut it down.


When the med center filled up over the summer, she used eminent domain to claim PPE for the healthcare workers when private suppliers were gouging hospitals. She saved thousands of lives single-handedly, and that makes racists and sexists quite leery since they don't have anything else to criticize her about.

The med center did not fill up. That is an outright lie. It wasn't even due to COVID cases that we saw a spike and we had overflow facilities here that were never even used. She did not save "thousands of lives". The one thing she could do but has failed to do is make rapid testing (same day or next day results) available.

No they aren't. They are almost all smaller states that were insulated from the 1st wave of COVID and are only now seeing it impacting them. These happen to almost all be less populated states with less healthcare resources due to a less dense population and being underfunded. It has little to do with political affiliation. The Northeast got absolutely demolished and is about to get hit again. Is that because it is mostly liberal? No, it is because they have a higher population density. Stop being a douche.

To what MAGAzine are you referring.  If the The Texas Tribune (head quartered is Austin) it is not a MAGAzine.  What they are blaming it on is:

Health officials are blaming the spike on family gatherings, multiple generations living in the same household and people under 40 going out to shop or conduct business.

Hispanics tend more to live in multi-generation households.  They are over-represented in the front line workers and having witnessed maskless gatherings in public parks - they tend to be also over-represented there.  I'm no MAGAturd but based on my observations over the last 8 months - I'm not surprised that Hispanics are over-represented in the case load.

I shouldn't talk shiat, I grew up in Kingwood in the class when the girls did the armed robberies and made national news and a shiatty made for tv movie.  The newspaper article began "Kingwood is a place so white the bruenettes stand out"

If she had wasted that money on unreliable testing that lured the population into a false sense of security, you'd be calling her a tax-and-spend liberal who would rather buy a pound of cure than an ounce of prevention; but she acted responsibly and put our doctors in a position to save lives, so you have to fabricate your criticism because there isn't a legitimate to be found.
