  1. Dummy markturner will blame the reopening and Governor Abbott. When the local health authority in El Paso already stated it was caused by community spread from various sources and social gathering back in May and June. Plus the dolt forgets essential businesses like Walmart never closed. He lives in a libtard bubble.

    1. That’s what liberals do. They only support “expert testimony” if it supports their propoganda. Even if it’s an “expert” on their side. That’s what makes them so dangerous and such a threat to our liberties and our freedom. Liberalism is the new domestic terrorism.

    2. Fero2a is once again using the name AlbertVelarde to smear that person’s name with his ignorant and hateful views along with original maga. Sad that they have no compassion for the sick or the ones who have died because their warped world view is threatened by reality. Your hate won’t change a thing other than make you sick physically, emotionally and spiritually. #saynotohate

      1. It’s the liberal that drive hate. You don’t see conservatives out there beating people up for no reason, burning down communities, threatening people or looting and rioting. It’s all the hateful liberals.

      1. So easy to rope that dope markturner and his Alberto schizo buddies. Why are you agreeing with Governor Abbott? You hate him. But nonetheless you are the one constantly ranting we opened too early but blaming him. How about those essential businesses that never closed to include essential manufacturing, etc. moron. Pay attention idiot.

    3. Governor Abbott said we opened too early. That’s why he said he may have to shut everything down again. Pay attention. Even the volkischer beobachter says we opened too early. You’re going to have to catch up.

    4. AV the QAnon false fact spreader. Hey Governors of Texas, Florida, and Arizona, this guy knows how Covid19 is spreading. Quick get him to your office so he can also tell you how to stop it. Just kidding. He’s escaped from the Psych ward. Please don’t hurt him, just call 911.

    1. No thanks to Right Wing Cows magga,AV aka Mike, FEO, et,al. Trumps just hollers, HEY DOGGIES, and the Right Wing Herd stampedes to his defense. Oh, you mean Covid19 herd immunity? No way, too many privileged Ken’s and Karen’s not wearing masks and yelling Constitutional rights. What about the rights of Health Care workers who catch Cobvid19 from these dumb asses.

      1. What are you smoking? Got some bad schwag weed again? Poor High420Lonesome. rofl. BTW – Health care workers wear the N95 type face masks that actually work. Be sure to get the lugis out of yours and disinfect it.
