Texas will end its coronavirus restrictions next week with an upcoming executive order, Gov. Greg Abbot (R) announced Tuesday during a press conference in Lubbock.
“Ah’ve eff’ed up everything else, y’all,” he didn’t add while playing with his toes, “so why not this?”
Why it matters: After Abbott signs the new order, which rescinds previous orders, all businesses can open to 100% capacity and the statewide mask mandate will be over, though large parts of the state will remain under mask local orders.
What they’re saying: “It is now time to open Texas 100%,” Abbott said Tuesday. “For nearly a half a year, most businesses have been open either 75% or 50%, and during that time, too many Texans have been sidelined from employment opportunities.”
“Ah did real good with th’ energy fiasco, didn’t Ah,” Abbott didn’t say. “Trust can me ‘n this one, y’all.”
I think Abbot is listening to his Lt. Gubnor, Dan Patrick again, who claims that Meemaw and Grampa would gladly die to save Capitalism for the grands.
- “Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills. This must end,” he added.
“An’ Ah found a hellaway fer it t’ end,” he did not conclude. “Vote Republican!,” he added, “Y’all deserve it, Texas!”
