It would have been nice to see some of these folks voluntarily taking Covid-19 precautions seriously. We haven’t “turned the corner” yet.

Doug Sivyer

Not only have we not returned the corner, the pandemic not been :ENDED" like the ignorant tRump admiration is spouting . In FACT, cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all on the rise across the nation, higher than any previous numbers in some cases. This behavior is reckless. Thank God election day is next week because I can't take anymore of this BS.

Carlos Ponce

" higher than any previous numbers in some cases" But in most, they are down, specifically a locale called GALVESTON COUNTY. Ever hear of it, Doug?

Bailey Jones

lol. Just look at all those happy white people.

Claudia Burnam

I'm sure the photographer zeroed in on mostly white people. And I'm sure there were people of other races there. Just another case of trying to make Trump and his supporters look bad.

Gary Scoggin

Sure Claudia, we’ll go with that. :-)

Carlos Ponce

"white people" - Identity politics which is the basis of Democrat/Liberal/Progressive ideology.

I don't see "white people" but I do see cheerful Americans expressing their Freedom of Speech and Right to Peacefully Assemble.

That's hateful, Bailey. But if that reflects your true feelings......[scared].

Craig Mason

All these people out to support a liberal democrat from New York City. But there are good people on both sides.

Carlos Ponce

He may be a "liberal democrat" but his policies are Christian Conservative.

Gary Scoggin

Such values as a ballooning deficit, tax cuts for high income individuals, opposition to free trade, bailing on our allies, personal enrichment and other foundational principles of conservatism.

Carlos Ponce

Looks like someone has been listening to Leftist propaganda!

ballooning deficit and Democrats want to add more to it by bailing out Blue Cities and states with poor financial management. Spending money on the neglected military was necessary. Pelosi's omnibus bill was filled with PORK. Don't sign and the country shuts down....

tax cuts for high income individuals - jealousy Gary Scoggin? You and I got a tax cut too!

opposition to free trade- Trump loves free trade as long if it's on a level field. The trade deals prior favored the other countries.....

bailing on our allies - nope, I guess it depends on who you consider an ally.

personal enrichment - he's actually lost money since becoming president.

and other foundational principles of conservatism - As a Conservative I have no problems. You on the other hand claim to be moderate but you write like a Liberal so how would you know?

Gary Miller

Some people got a 100% tax increase when they escaped poverty with a Trump Job. Few complain about going from living off taxpayers to paying taxes. Some do complain about having to work for a living when they were doing just fine on welfare.

Stuart Crouch

Yep, if Hate and Fear got together to throw a party for their friends, Ignorance and Lies, this would be what it would look like.

Soon...very soon.

Carlos Ponce

Such a hate filled post but it illustrates the desperation of Democrats/Liberals. Progressives. Just promise us you won't do anything drastic when Trump's re-election is announced. Don't go crazy, I mean CRAZIER.

Ted Gillis

A neighbor around the corner from me flys a Trump flag on his porch for all to see. Under the Trump 2020 banner reads F___ Your Feelings. (Including the omitted 3 letters).

Not very friendly optics out here were I live.

Carlos Ponce

That just where you live. I've never seen such.

Gary Miller

I see Americans cheering Americans. Color? Leave it toa progressive to use color. The American color is RED, White and Blue. All the blue States have more RED counties than Blue Counties. Red states have a sprinkling of Blue counties where crime and poverty rules.

Ted Gillis

And the Blue counties are mostly tumbleweeds and dirt, so what’s your point?

Jack Cross

I suspect those people attending the Blue Police rally were just everyday working Americans who respect law and order and support the police. it had noting to do with race. It was a long standing practice of American freedom of speech. to inject race and hate into this is awful and show the disconnect of those on the left that preach we must come together. I wish they were equally concerned about the gangs that are beating up people, looting, rioting and the peaceful protests. This boat rally was also a peaceful support for the police rally

I made a few edits...

So Jack, look how close you came to describing most BLM marches.

Carlos Ponce

"Most BLM marches" - locally yes, nationwide, not very peaceful.

domenico nuckols

County Judge Mark Henry should be removed from office.

Gary Miller

dominico> Yes but promotion to what better job do you propose?

domenico nuckols

They didn’t apply for a permit because they knew they would not get one. I didn’t know stupid traveled all the way from DC

Gary Miller

dpminico> You should have known. You are here aren't you.

domenico nuckols

Gary, I ware a mask ANYWHERE In public. I guess I’m stupid for doing so. Republicans are inconsiderate and careless about anyone except them self’s

Carlos Ponce

" I ware a mask ANYWHERE In public." Oh, I see. You vend masks. That's nice.

domenico nuckols

Gary, They would not be granted a permit

domenico nuckols

Everyone needs to ware a mask, Carlos. Trump will get you infected

Carlos Ponce

domenico, wear TWO masks or THREE just to be safe because in states, countries where masks are mandated, the number of infections has gone UP.

domenico nuckols

Tell it to the doctors at urmb

Carlos Ponce

Where's "urmb"?

domenico nuckols

Vote Joe vote early and often

domenico nuckols

I care if you get Covid. I care more when you go to utmb and affect their lives

Carlos Ponce

Not "urmb"?

domenico nuckols

In one of my other life’s I was an emt. Stupid is stupid

domenico nuckols

A true Republicans no not care
