Lone Star Joke

I think they can shelve that Cognitive Joe thing.  Former Vice President Joe Biden said a few months ago to don’t put it past Donald Trump to try to delay the election.  The Vice President nailed it.  Trump called for delaying the election this morning.

Texas has 403,307 COVID-19 infections as of yesterday afternoon.  The only countries that have more are the United States, Brazil, India, Russia and South Africa.  Let that sink in.

In the USA, we trail California, Florida and New York.  We should be passing New York any day now.  We are a joke.  Thank you, Gov. Greg Abbott!  That’s why only 38% of Texans approve the way Abbott is handling COVID-19.

They even had a GOP event in West Texas yesterday without social distancing and masks.  Worthless GOP.

Commentary said this yesterday:

 If the MLB Commissioner wants to show decisive action, he’ll fine the player $50 thousand and make him sit out for a couple of weeks.  He won’t, though.  The player is a Dodger and that’s all you need to know.

He got an 8-day suspension that he is appealing.  The Dodger skipper also got a 1-day suspension that he served last night.  Ok, I was wrong.  They did go after the Dodgers.  Our Skipper got fined.

I sure hope Cristian Javier turns out to be the real deal and not just a one game wonder.  He struck out eight last night in a game we should have won that included a bad replay call from New York.

No game today.
