It's a damn shame the GQP filth doesn't put as much effort into battling COVID as they put into voter suppression.

As usual, "C-c-conservative governance" will require outside support to be viable.

Except viable is far more literal this time than usual.

... Gov. Greg Abbott appealed for out-of-state help Monday to fight the third wave of COVID-19 in Texas. ...

Gov Abbott needs to acknowledge that his actions to fight COVID have not been appropriate.

While I do hope that the good citizens of Texas get all the help they need, and then some....

There does remain the issue of incompetent governance in Texas.

For starters, why did Gov Abott apparently side with the enemy virus and help it kill off Texans?


I've got more questions, but let's start with that one...

Well Abbott did announced an additional $267 million in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program food benefits.

Smooth move, Ex-Lax.

This Dumbo apparently thinks Texans are dying from a lack of nutrition.

Why should anyone help Texas when they are not doing everything they can to help themselves?

Exactly. It's like giving money to an arsonist to rebuild his house he burnt down while he is hold a gas can and matches.

I feel bad for the people that actually trust this moron to be a competent leader.

I am all out of F's to give to people that act like he does.

I don't like to tempt fate, so let's just say, we hope the vaccines keep working:

Today, the 5 most vaccinated states (14M people) had

580 people in hospital, 12 deaths

In the 5 least vaccinated states (16M people)?

6,600 hospitalized, 104 deaths

Per capita , least vaccinated states have

10X hospitalizations and 7X deaths

So yeah, vaccines are working

"There does remain the issue of incompetent governance in Texas."

AT this point for both Abbott and DeathSantis referring to them as incompetent denies their actual guilt. Their crimes have been committed intentionally and these guys aren't actually stupid, no they are just partisan hacks who bet wrong on COVID. They were not moral enough to understand that you don't place bets on your citizens's health needs. Right now it appears they both may lose their bets and good riddance when they do.

No.

Texas should get zero help.

The State did this to itself. ---- them. We aren't taking away resources from other states or spending money Republicans in Congress claim we don't have because Republicans and their base are so ------- stupid.

Let the ------- crazy unvaccinated Republicans die or become sick for life. It will teach the rest.

Every holiday, they can set out a plate in an empty spot at the table for dear old dead dad and remember he died to own the libs.

Hey Wheels! Just don't cross the Red River. Keep your loudmouthed, smelly Texas trash out of Okiehomie. I might need room in the local heart hospital in the coming weeks and the last thing I need near me is some big-talking, all hat and no cattle, duelie-driving tax accountant from Lubbock/Tyler/San Angelo/Beaumont stinking up my ward...

Pursue a Second Amendment remedy.

According to Second Amendment enthusiasts, it's why we have the right to bear arms in the first place. To protect us from tyranny.

What happened to the "well regulated militia" part?

Seem that part gets passed over a lot by both sides when people start getting rowdy.
