Mitt Romney said, " If you want to help people, you tell them the truth." Most Americans are still lying about everything out of fear that they will be reduced to what they should have been from the very beginning. Humble and caring. Being selfish and non-caring is not Christ's way and if it is not Christ's way, then it should not be your way either. And if it is your way, you need to seriously ask yourself, who are you following. A person cannot serve two masters. It's time for every American to acknowledge that from the day that they were born, they were led astray. Turning away from what you have been indoctrinated with does not make you weak. It makes you a very strong person and more pleasing to God. If you know better, you do better. Maybe, your mom and dad were completely wrong. Maybe your friends were completely wrong. Maybe, your co-workers and companies were completely wrong. Maybe, even the church that you were raised in was completely wrong. All these things you must examine if you ever have any hopes of becoming the person that God says that you should be. Only that would be the best version of you. Shed all of your dead weight and unchain your your today, tomorrow and forever.
Hey there, I just put a detailed request for vaccine information on your site 2 minutes ago, and it was deleted! Why was that done? This is important!
Can you PLEASE put something on your site telling people over 65 who live in northern Harris county ( 77379 area) where we can get our vaccine?? All we get is a LOT of double talk, crashed websites and constantly busy phones. So many people have died already, it will be criminal if more die waiting for Texas to figure out how to distribute vaccines now that they are available (kinda)! Also, some of us are handicapped or mobility challenged, so drive through are the best. We CANNOT wait on lines for 6 hours!
When you look at CDC Provisional Death Count per week, you see that it continues to show the PEAK number of deaths in USA is STILL mid April of last year! So why do we still get alarming headlines of repeated extremely HIGH surges of new outbreaks being reported, and threats of new lockdown attempts! How can we possibly trust what's reported, when CDC data doesn't support those LIES! If masks and lockdowns work, how come this virus doesn't go away! There are multiple reasons: Any Cold variant WILL be detected by the Tests, and colds will ALWAYS be around! And the REAL leading causes of deaths (everywhere in the world) are STILL old age-related, pre-existing medical conditions! Masks and lockdowns can't possibly stop those!
Judge, trying to get Covid vaccine by "luck" or lottery is not a good plan for our county. Channel 2 reported Harris County Health will have 8000 doses allocated. Who will get these? What is the plan? You have been ignoring your constituents with lack of action. You are personally becoming responsible for exposing people in the 1B category. Voters will remember your weak response to vaccine planning while being willing to spend millions of a 'hospital plan' for disease overflow but thus far not a penny on prevention plan.
Quit closing down Fort Bend County. Our people need to work. This is getting ridiculous. You have killed your political career.
Judge here are you quotes today. What are you doing proactively to get vaccines to county? You are only addressing the reactive. Why don't you address the county's lack of vaccine on the DSHS site? 1B is NOT available anywhere!!! Appears you are avoiding the tough actions and only stating the obvious. Where is the County Medical leadership? Harris County Judge Linda Hidalgo says the region is subject to the state's rollbacks in essential business occupancy based on the current surging in local COVID-19 hospitalization rates during a press conference Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021, in Houston. Hidalgo said the public should take this as a warning to be vigilant, and also encouraged the public to receive the vaccines if they are qualified. “Honestly, this is just another milestone on the road to a catastrophe unless each of us acts,” tweeted Hidalgo. “We can't rely on a small occupancy rollback. Do your part.”
When does the county plan to step up with a vaccination plan like the city?
