We talk with our guests about the various new laws in Texas, affecting voting rights, education, and other aspects of life for Texans. These have been enacted as admitted retribution for Democrats who defy Republicans. Although Republicans as a bloc are shrinking, they no longer care, because they have determined not to worry about gaining votes or voters: they pay no attention to elections.
We discuss the public health challenges of vaccinating the whole population. The Texas governor has usurped local control, in order to impede vaccination for his political reasons, which mainly includes pleasing the former guy, and what remains of the Republican party.
