Best Quote of the Week – May 22, 2020

“Now is the time, depending upon where you are or what your situation is, is to begin seriously looking at reopening the economy – reopening the country – to try to get back to some degree of normal.  I’m totally in favor of that if done in the proper way and appropriate setting.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, conceding that a prolonged national lockdown over the COVID19 crisis is unhealthy for the nation, but emphasizes a “prudent” reopening.

Most Unhinged Moment of the Week – May 15, 2020

“Texas’ Governor says you don’t need (expletive)!”

 – An unidentified man at a 99 Cent Only store in San Antonio, Texas, after an employee told him to wear a mask as part of company policy to prevent spread of COVID-19.

The belligerent, maskless man had charged at other customers who were recording him and even shouted at one, “Don’t record me!  That’s an invasion of my personal privacy!”

I have to make three points regarding this particular incident.  For one thing, while Texas Governor Greg Abbott hasn’t made it mandatory for people wear masks in public, he has encouraged the practice.  Also, when someone is in public – angry or not – they should have no expectation of privacy.  Finally, if you’ve ever been to a 99 Cent Only store, you should understand that the COVID-19 virus is the least potential health hazard you’ll face.

Worst Quote of the Week – May 15, 2020

“I’m in complete confidence that if I’m exposed to the coronavirus that either I won’t get it, or if I do get it, that, hey, it will be a few days and I’ll be fine afterwards.  Because when your immune system is strong – God designed our bodies to fight viruses. And that’s the thing: For me, it’s an attitude and mentality of faith over fear.”

Gabe Lyons, co-founder of Q, a Christian organization, in a recent COVID-19 discussion with followers.

Best Quote of the Week – May 15, 2020

“Mail-in ballots aren’t where the election fraud is happening.  It’s happening in the office of our indicted attorney general.”

Kendall Scudder, a Dallas County businessman who – along with another man – filed a formal complaint against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, alleging the latter committed voter fraud in each of the state’s 254 counties by contradicting a judge’s order expanding the availability of mail-in voting during the COVID-19 pandemic.

How the Chief Is Coping with the COVID-19 Quarantine – May 8, 2020

Reading bedtime stories to my aloe vera plant, Paco, is incredibly relaxing and soothing – well, at least for me.  And I know what you’re thinking.  (Remember, the Chief is cyber-psychic.  Who in the hell would name a plant Paco?  I mean…that’s so Mexican!  Okay, aside from me, Paco is the only other living being inside my house!  Even introverts must find a sense of humanity!

Worst Quote of the Week – May 8, 2020

Donald Trump with Gov. Kim Reynolds at the Iowa Caucus this past January

“The media likes to say we have the most [coronavirus] cases, but we do, by far, the most testing. If we did very little testing, we wouldn’t have the most cases. So, in a way, by doing all of this testing, we make ourselves look bad.”

President Donald Trump, during a meeting with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, May 6.
