When in Las Vegas, a fellow diner (also from Texas said that he didn't believe the federal government or state should mandate mask wearing. I had the duty to tell him that every mask mandate in Texas was enacted by either a mayor or county commissioner. The conversation switched to sports after that.
That shit is happening here in Iowa. Our Repub governor, Covid Kim is refusing to let school districts require masks or provide only online learning. So much for the longtime Repub policy in our state of local control. They also oppose local control when the citizens or county government try to limit or prevent the building of huge hog lots. But they refuse to ever see or admit hypocrisy in any of that.
