Warning of the fundamental changes to our way of life that is likely to bring; that the evidence supports the Sweden, Texas approach; and that maybe we shouldn’t be listening to communists who are on record as saying they want distancing, masks, total surveillance, a command economy and a programmable currency forever, is beyond the pale now apparently in the New Normal, even among conservatives.
WTF are you on about? I live in Texas the dipsticks I have met here who have not been vaxed are raving christian nutters who have had a loony preacher man tell them not to be injected with the devil's saliva. Sadly one of them is a good mate of mine, he told me to my face that he is putting his trust in the lord - he knows what I think of sky pixies. The other idiots who have not been vaxed are just backward, moronic, rednecks who would rather listen to their mate Bubba than any sound science based advice.
Other than that at State level it is economics. Texas is a fast growing State and does not want its growth as an economic powerhouse to be stalled by applying covid restrictions on the population. They would rather people died first.
Points to note: The wifes head of training called in to inform that he is off to self-isolate for the next week with his family - all have been vaxed. They were in contact with some friends who have come down with the virus quite badly and are in hospital now. The interesting factoid is that both the hospitalised individuals have been vaccinated. The Mrs is enacting the CDC protocols for work and they are re-considering going back to the offices which had been planned months back as a gentle roll-out over the next two weeks. I'm even thinking of cancelling my holiday to California in September.
