Gregg Abbott, who unfortunately is the governor of Texas, the state where I live, has decided to end the mask mandate and allow businesses to open at 100% capacity starting on March 10, 2021. Abbott couldn’t care less about the people of Texas, he only about pleasing those who donate large sums of money to his campaign.

Abbott isn’t the only moron, other governors are also lifting mandates. As usual, the first states opening back up and ending mask mandates have republican governors. Here in Texas, mayors and county judges are rightly angry and upset, but there isn’t anything they can do because the governor’s orders overrides those of city and county governments. The only way to stop Abbott’s order from going into affect would be for President Biden to sign an executive order requiring everyone in public places wear masks. Why hasn’t Biden made masks mandatory in all public spaces? He has been president for over a month, we need action or we need enough doses to vaccinate everyone in the state who is 16yrs and older now, not in weeks or in months.
