Considering the massive assholishness of anti-maskers, was this really a surprise?  You suck, Texas. Almost as much as Florida

Hey, Texas, I know you're trying, but you can end this shiat by voting for better people.

If you choose not to wear a mask, simply sign a pledge that you won't get health care when you get infected.

The problem will sort itself out quickly

The Concrete Cowboy in Houston

The closest we have is The Brave Bull. El Toro Bravo to some. It is the town gay bar. The last time I drove by it was still closed.

We are getting closer to the end of this mess every day. Why can't they just go along with it for a few more months, if that long? The CDC guidelines for those vaccinated are looking pretty good and can only get better soon.

Uhh, no. The people celebrating the end of the mask mandate are not voting for better people. There are more of them voting than there are of us.

If health insurers could deny all Covid-related claims from people who repeatedly ignore mask mandates, you better believe that people would mask up after people started receiving $100K bills for their stay in the ICU.

I got my first vaccine shot today.

I plan on waiting three weeks, getting my second shot, then waiting three more weeks for immunity to set in.

Then I plan on celebrating by going to my first baseball game in two years. I'll likely mask up because it's still possible I could be breathing COVID onto others, even if it won't infect myself. When herd immunity is in place, I'll shed the mask.

Yes, I plan on celebrating being immune - responsibly. Just like not drinking and driving (well, not having more than the one beer I know I can handle without effect; I do live in Wisconsin after all), wearing a seatbelt and just generally being courteous.

At some point, it feels like it's more about stomping one's feet and saying, "You can't tell me what to do!" than actually thinking through what the right thing to do is. Which, you know, most of us get over by about the age of four, then get over again by the age of 19.

I know, some folks will say, "yOu SoUnD LiKe FuN." But I actually pay attention to other people - all other people. When my favorite stuff all gets cancelled because smart people say it's dangerous, I listen. When people I'm related to died or were/are in the hospital, I take note. And I try to make sure the good things happen, not the bad things.

Pay farking attention to something other than yourselves, people.

I was in Houston this weekend and we stopped to pick up a pizza on our way home.

I, mask on, walked into this pizzeria and I was the ONLY person wearing a mask in the entire freaking place.  And it was packed... there wasn't a vacant chair in the entire place.  Even the patio was filled.  Nobody on the staff was wearing a mask either.

I was just shaking my head thinking, "does it hurt to be this f***ing stupid?"

The problem is that they're not just killing themselves. They're killing innocent people that have the misfortune to be in their vicinity, even if the innocent people wear masks.

I'm convinced there aren't any innocent people in Texas or Florida.

Both of those states attract assholes fleeing sensible places.

There some innocent children, but all adults have the choice to move away.

The unfortunate thing is if some Texans spread the disease by going to Colorado to buy weed.

The last innocent person in Florida was Rebekah Jones and there aren't any innocents left because they would've raided the people who raided Jones.

Yeah, exactly like 1983 Chevettes doing 85mph on public highways. Texas is a state that defines the idea of individual rights being held above the public good.

To say this virus is somehow different than one of a thousand things in Texas that results in innocent people dying is myopic to the reality of the state.

You know, the only state in the country which allows you to lethally defend your property from theft.

I've ordered food online and walked in to pick it up....until I saw no one was wearing a mask.

Promptly told the cashier to cancel my order bc I wasn't buying food from someplace that is full of dumbasses.

Very few places have those speed limits and is relegated to long stretches without any development. Between Houston and Louisiana I think there is less than a 10 mile stretch outside of Winnie and Beaumont that is 80. Pretty much everyone is going to be driving 80-85 easily on I-10 in the left hand lane if they aren't passing and in the middle and right hand lanes 70-75 even though posted limit is 65. There are plenty of places where people drive fast and considering the sprawl of Texas, the 80 and 85 speed limits are fine. Where you run into issues are highways like 290 with speed traps because there is 1 gas station in some podunk town between Houston and Austin or SA where it drops from 65+ to 35, or they just straight up throw a stop light in. That shiat is dangerous for everyone.
