Governor Abbott crushes mandate.

Blog King, Mass Appeal

AUSTIN — Coronavirus who? Texas Governor Greg Abbott is catching hell for lifting the state’s mask mandate that was implemented to suppress COVID-19. Abbott is also allowing businesses to open at 100 percent capacity. The modus operandi goes into effect March 10th. “Too many Texans have been sidelined from employment opportunities,” Abbott explained at Tuesday’s presser. “Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills. This must end. It is now time to open Texas 100%.”

Call it a Domino effect, but Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves also quashed the face covering decree and, yes, proprietors are free to conduct operations at maximum volume. “Our hospitalizations and case numbers have plummeted, and the vaccine is being rapidly distributed. It is time!,” Reeves tweeted.

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo is among those opposed to Abbott’s decision. It’s her contention that “taking away critical public health interventions” won’t make communities safer in Texas and/or expedite a return to normalcy. “Every time public health measures have been pulled back, we’ve seen a spike in hospitalizations,” Hildago said in a statement.

“Now is not the time to reverse the gains we’ve worked so hard to achieve. At best, today’s decision is wishful thinking. At worst, it is a cynical attempt to distract Texans from the failures of state oversight of our power grid.”

Several athletes vented their 2 cents.

New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart called Abbott a “dumbass.”  

Indiana Pacers forward Myles Turner tweeted, “Keep Wearing Your Masks!!! Buddy Trippin.”

Even though the mask mandate has been lifted, Abbott implored residents to use common sense.

“Removing state mandates does not end personal responsibility and caring for your family members, friends and others in your community,” he said. “People and businesses don’t need the state telling them how to operate.”

Do you agree with the mask removal?

Should the pandemic be considered a hoax?

Is it time to get back to normal?

  2. TIME COMPLEXITY

    What an IDIOT!

  3. Abbott has his head so far up Trumps butt that he has a spray tan by the time he comes up for air 😂

  4. Abbott is distracting from the disaster of last weeks freeze, he should be fired.. what a waste. Texas needs a real Governor.

    Although I think what Abbot did is a risky move, I think masks should be optional because i am all about freedom. Life is all about taking risks!

  6. Many people say that America is a place of freedom. I don’t give a care if you don’t wear a mask or do. It’s your choice 🤷‍♀️. If America is free then so are Americans. If someone wants to wear a mask still let them! If they don’t wanna wear one then just move on. Everyone has different opinions but really sometimes you just need to move on. I will be wearing my mask as I live with my grandma. You do you ❤️

  7. What an absolute buffoon this man is! The pandemic is far from over and most right minded people know that, opening business is one thing but ending the mask mandate is sheer stupidity that is not going to do anything but allow infections to rise again!

    Greg Abbott: Making Covid-19 great again.

  9. Walmart Cashier

    all you sheep can keep wearing masks while the rest of us get back to living normal lives

  10. It’s funny that people are angry about this. No one is forcing you to leave your houses. Just stay home and out of the way of people that are willing to get the country back on track. When the case/fatality numbers continue to fall in Texas, it will be disregarded and they’ll start attacking the next state that allows people to think for themselves.

  11. Hallelujah 🙏🏻💗

  12. Laugh now cry later 🎭 Prayers for Texas and Mississippi ! 🙏🏼 You guys will be falling like flys and noone will be there to save you cause your hospitals will be over capacity 🤦🏻‍♀️ don’t expect any one to feel sorry for y’all ….

  13. Good get back to life,pro life, regular life Americans 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  14. Hey Greg, can I come over and cough on everything in your mansion?

  15. coronavirus can suck my dick……….. and anybody who believes the pandemic is real can do the same

  16. Estrada Murcielgo

    Good. It’s time for this nonsense to be over with.

  17. Greg Abbott must be one of those idiots who, when they have an infection, stops taking his full prescription of antibiotics early because he “feels better now!” and ends up breeding a more resistant strain that comes back on him. But then again, I guess there are no corporations and rich people paying him to do that with his own body so maybe not.

  18. Praise God for Gov Abbott!!! Let the people go! Go make money, go live lives. If you are scared get the hell out!!!

    Your supposed f***ed up “waves” will never end! That’s a means to control with these inhumane, draconian ungodly laws for the “benefit of the society” when all it does is put millions of people on the streets because they can’t live off of one ($1,200) relief payment for a whole year! How many have committed suicide? How many family homes broken or destroyed because we’re afraid to sneeze. We’ve had all kinds of types of corona style viruses in the past yet there was no dramatized fear instilled in the minds of the public. Think 🤔 about it.

  19. Jerome Burdine

    Moving to Texas!!!

  20. Mud Dog Tracker

    Imagine a vaccine so safe you have to be threatened to take it for a disease so deadly you have to be tested to see if you have it.

  21. While Liberals want you to wear 2 or 3 Masks until you can’t even breathe!!

  22. A distraction from the mass power outage

  23. Melton Enterprises

    Good on Texas, J and J can keep their poison.

  24. Fat and old people stay home. Everyone else let’s go to Taco Bell

  25. As every State should!

  26. doesn’t make sense to me at all…I work at a hospital, folks are STILL coming in with COVID symptoms…

  27. Redeemed Believer

    what a stupid move

  28. He wants everyone to be crippled like him…

  29. Chris Dominguez

    Glad I am not in Texas! Can the governor be sued for endangering the lives of Texans? Well, probably should just order the body bags now – maybe the state should pay for the funerals. Naw, just make the dead bury themselves!

  30. When 1% of the population dies(nation or global), then I will be concerned.

  31. This is suicide. For everyone. The nurses and first responders are fucked.

  32. About time🤙

  33. I want to Leave America

  34. Texas ,Texas,Texas Freedom state

  35. @Buzzwin r: Then get the fuck out!

  36. William Hodgden

    Good for Texas. Let the commies cry now.

  37. FREEDOM! We are winning! ❤️❤️❤️

  38. Tysons Accosta

    Governor Abbott is sitting at the table playing craps. And when you roll the dice, one of two outcomes will happen. Either you will win, or you will crap out. My guess is that Governor Abbott will achieve the latter. And a ton of people will have to pay the ultimate price for his roll of the dice. SMH…

  39. Michelle Courry

    Josh Hart got it right, Governor Abbott is a fool for lifting the face mask restriction. He is bowing to a political agenda, whatever it might be. Only a FOOL would do this now. Lost opportunities is a good sound bite, but nothing more. Misdirecting issues from the failure of ERCOT, the basic failing of Texas’ infrastructure, the number of people who FROZE TO DEATH, etc is not a solution to what is happening around us. Normally, I’d say Governor Abbott does a fairly decent job, but now I have to question his commitment to the people he’s supposed to serve. Removing the face mask restriction is only going to cause two things; more people will continue to spread COVID and it will continue to create new strains we do not yet know how to combat and more people will continue to die. It does not take a genius to realize that.

  40. Everything is bigger in Texas. Apparently so is stupidity.

  41. Cynthia Spears

    We gonna catch the virus with or without the mask people!!!! Only God can save us from the man made virus 🦠 that they are calling the COVID-19,,,THE MASK CAN NOT STOP US FROM CATCHING IT ,,,peopllllle

  42. Trenton Barrant

    Good news:
    Those of you who want to wear the masks of nonsensical capitulation and shame can do so for the rest of your lives. (because that’s what you deserve)
    Nobody is stopping you.

  43. Insignificant Other

    The next phase of the scamdemic is about to begin. Want to visit family? Papers please. Want to go to the gym? Papers please. Want to go grocery shopping? Papers please. Want to go to that sports event or concert? Papers please. Or maybe you’re more willing to wear an ankle or wrist bracelet like someone on probation so you can scan it to travel. Or use the app to scan your QR code.

  44. First off there is no disease…it is a common cold…I’ve had 7 employees get it and none of them were sick longer then a day or two….on top of that they all recovered and not one of them died…?
    Rev. 13-15 states accepting the number of the beast…forcing ppl to go against their religion and forcing them to wear masks, is the first stage, of the number of the beast.
    If ppl don’t want to wear mask and die from a car crash, who the government will list as dying from covid… Then that’s their option, not the governments….we live in America, not Korea unless I’ve missed something..?

  45. COVID = China Originated Virus Increased Death.

  46. Elizabeth Taylor

    I’m so envious! The tyrant who runs my state will be the last governor to lift this ridiculous mask mandate.

  47. KEEP YOUR MASKS 😷
    YOU WILL NEED IT IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGAIN ONCE THEY DECIDE TO BRING BACK THE MASK MANDATE.
    TEXAS WILL SEE AN INCREASE IN CORONA VIRUS DUE TO STUPIDITY!!
