Texas GOP votes to have their COVID Convention in Houston

6000 ignorant republicans all crammed into the George R Brown Convention Center during a raging, out of control, pandemic. What could possibly go wrong? The Texas Republican Party executive committee voted 40-20 to continue with plans to hold an in person convention which means 1/3 of the executive committee is beginning to think with their heads instead of their nose.

Maybe some of them read about Herman Cain, the former GOP presidential candidate, who is now hospitalized with COVID after attending the Trump foley in Tulsa. Or maybe they read that their leader, Greg Abbott has finally realized he screwed up the reopening of Texas and is now requiring the wearing of masks across the state. Or maybe they just finally pulled their heads out of Donald Trump's ass and smelled the virus.

Not only will 6000 delegates meet in the convention center, many will pay to attend an elegant gala, or a luncheon with elected officials, and others will attend training sessions such as "How to avoid being labeled a racist".

The Texas GOP also voted to put the following rules in place for all attendees:
  1. Wearing a mask is mandatory even if wearing a hood.
  2. Social distancing will not be allowed. It is not needed.
  3. Remember the virus is a hoax. Act like it.
  4. If you are sick do not come to the event.
  5. If you are poor, do not come to the event.
  6. If you are Latino, do not come to the event.
  7. If you are Black, do not come to the event.
  8. If you are a person of color, do not come to the event.
  9. If you are a police officer, do not come to the event.
  10. If you are a teacher, do not come to the event.
  11. If you are Muslim, do not come to the event.
  12. If you are not racist, do not come to the event.

Texas 1 month COVID cases

Since opening up the state, Greg Abbott's numbers of COVID cases has nearly TRIPLED! We were warned this was going to happen. Abbott is responsible for this. Trump is responsible for this. The Unites States unlike European nations has been unable and unwilling to flatten the curve. Texas has become the new New York with 8000+ new cases each day.

Because of this incredible stupidity by Abbott we should expect home schooling for 2021, no traveling, continued lockdown at home, and more.

Texas GOP to wear hoods, not masks, at their COVID Conference in Houston

According to The Texas Tribune:
Gov. Greg Abbott is allowing limits on outdoor crowds — but not indoor gatherings. His party's convention — with an expected attendance of 6,000 — so far will not require attendees to wear face masks.
This is nothing but a COVID Convention with an outbreak about to happen right here in Houston. How many people are going to be exposed to this group of morons? How many convention workers? How many hotel workers? Abbott, the Mensa of the Coronavirus response is about to close down the state but I am sure he will allow his party to have their fill of COVID and allowing them to possibly spread the disease to Houstonians.

They will probably stick to firm rules. No Mexicans, Muslims, non-Christians, Jews, teachers, sick, poor, and others. No masks will be allowed. Only hoods. Wear them proudly.

Texas Gov Greg Abbott. A State of Embarrassment


All Texans needed was for Texas leaders to do just that, lead, and Gov Abbott has failed spectacularly in his response to the COVID virus.

All he had to do was to listen to the experts in the field and take necessary precautions. Instead he listened to the person who wanted to inject Americans with bleach and opened Texas back to business too soon. In return for his vest to please his president the State is now going back to a lockdown. Bars are now closed. Restaurants are scaling back. Harris County is now recommending a voluntary stay at home order.

All because Abbott wanted to look good with the president. Lives have been lost. Businesses have been closed. Texans have lost their jobs. Just because Abbott was afraid to stand up to Trump.

Well as the saying goes, we do things bigger in Texas including being the biggest embarrassment to the state and to the country. Abbott may want to cover his face with a mask to hide his shame.

Another republican losing their job over a tweet in Houston

How stupid can trump people be? Ask the General Manager (or it might be the former GM this afternoon) of the Scrap Yard professional softball team out of the Woodlands. From Sports Illustrated:
During a game against USSSA Pride, another independent pro softball team, a tweet was posted on Scrap Yard’s Twitter account with a picture of players standing and the words, “Hey @realDonaldTrump Pro Fastpitch being played live @usssaspacecoast @USSSAPride Everyone respecting the FLAG!” 
That post produced sharp retorts from Osterman and several other players as well as a Facebook repudiation of the tweet, which subsequently was deleted but archived by several Twitter users, by USSSA Pride.

The team members have since quit and will be looking for other teams to play with. The General Manager, Connie May was responsible for the tweet and defended it. Just this month she was promoted to the new regional director for the Unites States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) of the greater Houston area. 

So because of this politically and racially charged tweet, the GM has lost her team, the team has lost their team, and the opponents have lost a team to play against. 

By this afternoon I would bet the GM will have lost her job joining the Harris County Republican Party Chair-elect. The USSSA Pride Team has responded:

Teneshia Hudspeth endorsed by Diana Trautman for County Clerk

Teneshia Hudspeth the Chief Deputy Harris County Clerk has announced she is seeking the Democratic nomination for Harris County Clerk. I was hoping she was interested in running for this position. Diane Trautman had this to say:

The job oc county clerk is a huge responsibility and the person who assumes this office in November must be read to hit the ground running. Teneshia is that person and she will be ready to assume the duties on day one. There is no doubt that Teneshia has what it takes to run this office efficiently.

Well said. Precinct chairs will be voting for the nominee to be on the ballot in November.

Mocking Texas Gov Gregg Abbott's disability

Republican say "This shouldn't happen to me". Democrats say "This shouldn't happen to ANYONE."

Gregg Abbott has some balls to be offended by being mocked for his disability by two staffers from Empower Texas caught on an open mic. From The Texas Tribune:
An Abbott spokesman denounced the comments by Cheshire and McDonald. "It reveals a lot about an organization’s character and morals that uses profanity to mock a person in a wheelchair, and this audio is disgusting and hate-filled," Abbott spokesman John Wittman said in a statement. "It is sad to think about what else this group may be saying about people behind their backs when they think they aren’t being recorded. 
Empower Texas is the same group Abbott has supported as they stacked the Legislature with far white wing radicals such as Jonathon Stickland, Tony Tinderholt, and Little Baby Briscoe Cain. This is the same group that Abbott has supported as they passed far right wing legislation such as open carry of firearms. 
Abbott and Empower Texas both have supported a president who has mocked a disabled reporter on live TV and now Abbott is whining about being mocked himself? It's not fun when the morally bankrupt individuals like Trump, people who you have supported and encouraged, turned their ire towards you.
Abbott has no moral authority to complain. He should sit down, shut up, and take what he deserves from his own party.

Texas! We're Number 1 with 4400+ new COVID cases!

This just cant be good. Harris County had 425 new cases today and 450 new cases yesterday. Texas had a total of 4400+ new cases of COVID, a new record as the state continues relaxing preventative measures. I do not believe this spike is due to the protests, yet. That will come later.

Meanwhile Greg Abbott continues to bury his head in the sand hoping the virus will magically disappear, ponies will roam free, and flying unicorns will fart COVID vaccines across the state. He is not only embarrassing, he is dangerous. A Trump on wheels.
