    Everything is bigger in Texas.

  2. This is how Trump’s no numbers herd immunity will work.
    The red States brought this on themselves.

    • @Adam Midson well stay out of America then. Last thing we need is more drama queens like you here. Got enough already

      @Spike_NZ You mean like when they gathered by thousands in many predominantly blue cities across the country to “peacefully demonstrate”?

    • @David Hale thank you for your hospitality 😘
      I live in one of the most liveable countries in the world. I have so much to see and do here. I will spend and invest my money here and in New Zealand, another country that is one of the most liveable in the world. Thanks. 👍

    • @Anthony Graham Well, you didn’t make it clear.

      Ouch California had a 21 billion dollar surplus last year and are currently down because their 10 year run expanding jobs ended with Covid. But don’t let the facts get in your way!

  3. Didn’t think Texans need to take precautions. Isn’t covid just a hoax?

    Sounds like real Trump country …data break down …sounds like those voting machines Republicans don’t like ?

  5. This genocide brought to you by the GOP.

    • @Fred A ok, I see your point. But, not all of these dead people were cult members.

    • @Hazel Em I love this term and will gladly adopt ‘negligent genocide’ into my lexicon.

    • @David Hale the American population is, I think, around *320m. Also, it’s “only” 304k because healthcare providers have just about been able to cope until recently. The virus is now out of control. An extra million infections every 5 days. That will soon be daily. Most hospitals are approaching capacity. Rural hospitals are already being overwhelmed.

      The result is the mortality and complications rate is going to skyrocket because people in critical condition won’t be able to get hospital treatment.

      Let’s revisit that “only” figure in a couple of months.

      Edit: 331m

    • @David Hale the numbers will be a lot higher than 300k before this is over because of what they have done. There’s a fine line between the evils of shutting parts of the economy down and the uncontrolled spread of the virus. They stood well back from this point and just decided to try and sacrifice people to the economy; despite all expert advise telling them that would be a disaster.

  6. We’ve known for months how to be safer. Mask, wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, don’t gather together. I don’t like it, but it’s better than dead.

  7. So, is Texas suppressing covid data right now?

    • No, the only option is massive amounts the vaccine. There is no such thing as too protected. We know vaccines are 100% safe and vaccine injury is a myth, so dose up and live life without regret.

    • I live out here. More of a lack of data and education about covid.

    • Captain Blacktooth | December 17, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      @Lucius Kiirus Take some actual facts on these Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations. Instead of the politically fuelled hyperbole.

      First understand I am in the highest risk group from COVID. As such I have not been out of my house since January 2020 (nor has my healthy wife, for my safety). Each day I take vast cocktails of prescription drugs, 30+ daily plus 2 injections. Each year I get vaccinated for Influenza and I have had the Pneumococcal vaccine … Ergo, I have zero problem with vaccines or prescription drugs of any sort, including opioids (Oxycodone) which I have taken for a decade ongoing.

      Neither the Pfizer nor Moderna vaccines have enough data behind them, because they have simply not existed long enough. No one is aware what contraindications there are to other drugs. The efficacy rate of the Pfizer vaccine is under 75% which means under normal circumstances it would be thrown down the sink. A useful vaccine needs a +98.5% efficacy rate.

      Plus the ‘second dose’ idea was a trial MISTAKE … That is how in control of this vaccine they are.

      The re-uptake of infection after the Pfizer shot will be very high, as I suspect it will be with the Moderna vaccine … Because COVID is mutating fast, it is new and it is ‘keen’ …. Personally I will not take any vaccine for at least 5 years until they are sure it is at least minimally safe.

      Other people; do what you think best. But I act on education, not spurious news media and politicians spewing their messages.

      PS …. In the UK the Pfizer company has total 100% immunity from prosecution from effects of the vaccine … as does the health service and the government … Now doesn’t that make one feel confident?

  8. Don’t worry Texas… someone with a brain is about to take over.

  9. Willful ignorance – people refuse to acknowledge the truth. Deny science.

  10. I’m guessing Republicans!

    “We can’t get dry ice for a birthday party let alone for the vaccine”…

    • Well? Listen to your Republican leaders… they’ll ship it in from North Korea… Or more likely Russia…

    • I took that to mean a reliable supply and larger quantities than a single birthday party, not a matter of importance. He’s here and a vaccine “provider” so he thinks it is important.

    Isn’t Texas Republicans who believe that the Virus is a hoax.

      @Bruce DaBuc No I’m good this Video ha been replayed over and over for the Last 9 months. When you you people stop living in Fear

    • Captain Blacktooth | December 17, 2020 at 3:09 PM | Reply

      @ Isidra … Indeed, I have just watched the Republican Texas governor at his press conference espousing ‘NO MORE LOCKDOWNS!!” …. I also liked that the Sign Language guy was hidden behind the governor so you could NOT see his hands signing 😂😂😂☠👈🤦‍♂️😒

      @Andiamo10 Andiamo you first, go and educate yourself

      It was trump who has used the covid 19 situation…first ignoring the seriousness of it , practically completely…to push his own agenda
      and yes…he did call the virus situation a hoax , many ×

      his many fingers have been in many pies behind the scenes , ripping off America.. for the past 4 yrs and for yrs before that

      And just because you keep repeating ‘ they rigged the election ‘ does not make it true
      They have had plenty of time and opportunity to do more than suggest….to bring proof forward
      And they did not do that…

      but by all means, go ahead
      Go to Walmart on a Saturday, even better
      and after that send a donation to dt
      he is waiting🤑this what he looks like🤑

    It’s not convenient for the Governor of Texas to show reality. Because they don’t care about their people.

  14. Lakesha Goodwin | December 17, 2020 at 2:30 PM | Reply

    Well let them keep believing it’s a hoax… thin out the stupid

  15. Texas and Florida; controlling pandemic perception through data manipulation.

  16. Richard Thomas | December 17, 2020 at 2:33 PM | Reply

    Now what is that saying for the ones not wearing mask or taking precautions ? OH yes “you can’t fix stupid” …………………

  17. “We want them infected.” Donald J Trump’s administration. Texas is just carrying out the orders of its dear leader.

  18. Patty Viviendo | December 17, 2020 at 2:45 PM | Reply

    I’m more concerned about Americans traveling to Mexico and infecting Mexican people.

  19. ByeDon Twenty20 | December 17, 2020 at 2:49 PM | Reply

    And Texas politicians think it’s more important to worry about Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, and Arizona than their own state!

  20. “1 in every 13.” Lay it at trump’s feet
