Against my better judgment and several beers deep, I have taken you up on this, potentially ending my streak of totally worthless posts. I have done 3 and 7 day averages only on the Worldometer data. 

Daughter’s home. A little PTSD, we’re picking up Whataburger to help.

Just try and imagine GreenspointTexas being the person to intubate you as you fight for your life against COVID-19. You’re laying there gasping for air while he chastises you for all the things you li

"Multilayer cloth masks, designed to fit around the face and made of water-resistant fabric with a high number of threads and finer weave, may provide reasonable protection. Until a cloth mask design is proven to be equally effective as a medical or N95 mask, wearing cloth masks should not be mandated for healthcare workers. In community settings, however, cloth masks may be used to prevent community spread of infections by sick or asymptomatically infected persons, and the public should be educated about their correct use."

 

From the abstract.

What do you think you've proven here?

And that's fair.  I don't know why I just engaged BradinATX on tax law.  I gotta go take a shower.  He was so fun to party with during the election cycle, and I'm afraid he's gone full Penn. 

I'll still party with your crazy ass any day, even if we disagree about one particular thing.

 
Lobo will  never by my latex salesman!

Cloth mask debate is analogous to our bad coaching debate

Charlie Strong is like wearing no mask

Shaka Smart is like wearing a cloth mask

Tom Herman is like wearing an N95, but not over your nose and sometimes getting drunk without any mask in a strip club.

Steve Sarkisian is like getting a vaccination and praying to God it works against new strains of the disease (OU)

Govna Abbott going to make a “statewide announcement “ this afternoon - rumors are he’s going to end the mask mandate and possibly other COVID restrictions.

I think it would be beyond incompetent to do that now.  Which means he probably will.   Cases are lower but potentially plateauing with the threat of more contagious variants ramping up.  But on the flip side vaccines are also really starting to ramp up.   It we could just limit spread for another month with basic precautions we will be sitting here in April with significantly warmer weather combined with a ton of vaccine supply.   The optics alone of ending the mask mandate the weeks before fucking spring break is the dumbest fucking thing he could do.

Yeah....that's not even a credible position.  Assume the stupidest path imaginable, and then bet everything you have on Americans following it.  You'll be rolling in Scrooge McDuck piles of cash in no time.

I’ll still be wearing a mask for the foreseeable future regardless of the mandate. Until I’m fully vaccinated it is the best protection. I think it’s stupid to be ending it now if that is indeed what is going to happen.

I get that there's finally some optimism in the air, but this should not be repealed statewide.  Herd immunity is not a switch that flicks on everywhere at once.  It's more like a 52-year old water treatment plant lever that nobody really understands.  JNJ/Merck are gonna need at least 60 days to start really getting more vaccines out there, registration and scheduling are still a clusterfuck for the other two, and Spring Break is in two weeks for most of the state.  This is literally the worst possible timing to take our eye off mitigation/slowing community spread.  Plus we still need to convince about 1/3rd of the stupid people to take this thing as well sometime between now and July.  

That's a lot of heavy lifting yet to go.  I think it's 4-5 more months to go of simple mitigation efforts.  Nobody's asking to "shut things down", implement quarantines, close down schools.  We do this right, and it's Caligula level debauchery with no protection of any kind by Labor Day.  But we're Texas, we're gonna fuck it up and limp half-assed all the way until Christmas.  

Imagine if Texas leaders listened as hard to the "we would enjoy a bit of gas and water for our home this week during this blizzard, please sir...if it's not too much trouble." as they did to the "Muh Fucking Freedoms, I won't wear this muzzle no more dammit!"

Well Abbot is a fucking moron.   Right on the precipice of winding this thing down and he wants to make it as hard as possible and embolden all the fucking morons.    What a god damn fucking idiot.

This timing doesn't make any fucking sense.

IMO the mandates shouldn’t have been relaxed until we can move beyond 1A and 1B for vaccinations. My dad has cancer and still can’t even find an appointment for a shot. Wait until those who are at the highest risk of severe infection are more widely vaccinated before lifting all the restrictions. Yeesh.

He said a few too many reasonable things about the election late last year so now he needs to do a bunch of stupid shit to get his base back, lest he get outflanked to the right by someone more crazy and stupid than he is.

Wanna wear the mask? You still can. Want to make patrons of your business wear a mask? You still can.

I think a lot of people will continue to wear one or require others to wear them at their place of business/home.

I’ve had both shots; why should I continue wearing a mask? Solidarity LOL?

Have u been living under a rock? You can still transmit the disease to others even with vaccination

and no, this mask mandate removal is actually kind of a big deal. Gives people a huge false sense of security when we still need to be hyper vigilant

 

 

 

We are about to land the plane in a typhoon and instead of focusing on the runway and having everyone wear seatbelts, we are jerkin off in the bathroom to zombie porn

Every business that wants to be open should be open. 

No shirt, no shoes, no service....you want to maintain the requirement, by all means do so.  Give people the choice.  

Let the freak-outs begin....

So for those of you who are happy that this is happening and are saying that businesses still have the right to make people wear masks, do you also fully support businesses having people who refuse to wear a mask arrested for trespassing when they won't leave? How about suing the people for property damage when we have another round of fit throwing by unstable people like the last time that the state was without a mask mandate?
