How it started:
How it's going:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott reported 0 Covid deaths yesterday, the first time that has happened since last March. The other numbers aren't too shabby either.
I have to give a quick rundown of the dire predictions and scoldings Texas received from all the woke homo sapiens just a couple of months ago, starting with California Gov. Gavin Newsom:
Meanwhile, in ever careful and cautious California where reason reigns supreme and science is worshiped as their God...
Huh. How do they explain that?
Speaking of science:
"I don't know why they're doing it, but it certainly from a public health standpoint is ill advised,"
"Just pulling back on all of the public-health guidelines that we know work — and if you take a look at the curve, we know it works — it's just inexplicable why you would want to pull back now."
Not-Texas-governor Beto O'Rourke had something to say of course:
Also weighing in at the time was Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post's "conservative" columnist (which you can tell by the way she conservatively regurgitates Democratic talking points):
And as mentioned above, there was President Biden's infamous "Neanderthal" jab:
In fairness, these numbers jump around a lot and there will be future deaths in Texas and in other states that dropped their mandates. These deaths will be reported with ghoulish delight by the media.
Regardless, the fact remains that the states that have refused to go along with draconian lockdowns and endless mask mandates are doing as well or better than those that did, and managed to do so while in large part preserving the rights and freedoms of their citizens.
Maybe what we need in this country is some more Neanderthal thinking.
