With the anniversary of the explosion of Covid-19 coming up next week, I would have hoped that logic and science would have finally won the day. But stupidity and politics still have still have a hand to play.
Earlier this week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott ended the mask mandate. As of next Wednesday, March 10th, all businesses are re-opening as if the pandemic never happened.
From an economic perspective, his decision is a sound one. The only way to restore the state and the nation to the pre-pandemic financial state is to get people working again. That being said, the only way we can contain this virus and stop the spread is to follow the protocols established by the CDC and the medical community.
Adding to the foolishness is the Governor’s statement blaming the spread of Covid-19 on undocumented Mexican immigrants and the Biden administration.
I wonder, as many others have wondered, if this is nothing but a smoke screen? The mess that the snow storm created is far from cleaned up. If he thinks that solely catering to his base is enough to keep him in office, he should look to the former President. There is a reason why you know who is thankfully no longer on the job.
The fact is that we can only return to some version of normal if we work together. It does not help that some people are so thickheaded that they ignore the facts to save their own skins.
