Texas Just Told Counties To Stop Reporting Their Coronavirus Numbers

If county officials are being forced to stop reporting coronavirus cases and deaths to its citizens, how can we know we will be getting accurate numbers?

2. Than we should "guesstimate" unrealistically high numbers all over the media

so that they are almost forced to report the real numbers as proof that the number of cases being reported by "guesstimates" is not accurate and it too high. Two can play that game....the "Who can lie better" game developed by Dear Leader.

3. Time to engage. Guess I have to start calling them again...

Man, I hate these guys. They don't like me. I must be on some kind of list already...lol.

Oh well, They are going to hear about this one.

4. I live in Collin County

Possibly one of the reddest counties in Texas. That the mayor of McKinney spoke out is a bad sign for those in Austin making these monumentally bad decisions. These bastards from Abbott on down need to be made to understand that they serve the citizens of Texas, not the other way around.

8. Howdy! Collin County here, too.

We're red, but getting less so. My voting precinct in far north Plano actually went blue in 2018. I was thrilled.

6. I would have thought states would have laws or rules in place

requiring accurate reporting of things like deaths.

7. Abbott has hidden the true numbers all along

Using ways to just not report them, so this shouldn't be a surprise.

10. Tarrant County's case numbers have been increasing

The first increases were related to the virus getting loose in the correctional institutions located here. We should be seeing the cases related to the opening very soon.

Abbot is such a tool. He was too chicken to set up a statewide shutdown so he left it up to the counties. Safe sheltering, limiting restaurants to take out only, no gatherings over 10 persons, 6 feet distancing, etc

However when he was pressured to open the state, the proclamation rescinded the right of counties to make their own rules.
