Somewhere in the last few months I unfollowed or blocked the lynchpin of social media crazy and now they’ve all gone away.

The antivaxxers, flat earth, fluoride is poison, 5G, COVID’s a hoax. All of them. Gone. All I see day after day is normal, logical, scientific opinions.

I thought Texans were supposed be tough, independent and rebellious?

Instead they are letting their governor shut down their ballot drop stations? What a bunch of weaklings and pushovers.
“Don’t mess with Texas.”
What a flimsy bunch of fake cowboys. Y’all need to sprout some ovaries.
