Bars are not really my thing, so my absence won't be missed. I imagine a lot of tourists will appreciate the opportunity to swap viruses there. I hope they provide health insurance to their employees. You do provide health insurance, right, Ms Landry?

Carlos Ponce

In the years since there's been a Galveston up to 2019 there were no viruses to swap, Bailey? And yes, some got sick and a few died. C'est la vie et c'est la mort.

Does this mean we can all pick and choose which laws we obey, especially if we don’t think they are valid?

Ray Taft

Yep. That’s what it means because enough is enough. We are a government of, by and for the people. Let’s reclaim our rights.

People were ordered to stay home by decree, that many believe is unconstitutional, only go outside for essential reasons we were told. Did forcing people to live like that really contain the virus? There are a lot of reasons to believe that it did not contain the coronavirus.

Let’s reopen because staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is not the right approach!

Gary Miller

Ray>Right on. With no real evidence lock downs, masks, social distancing had any effect other than proving the power of bureaucrats what good does it do to harrass businesses employing people to earn livings? Earning a living is more important to most than keeping bureaucrats happy.

They weren't "laws" Gary, they were "orders" . And in some cases "guidelines". Are we supposed to challenge authority? Yep, its the bedrock of a free society. Especially when that authority bypasses the legislative process.

Have you ever failed to use a turn signal? Sped? Have you ALWAYS paid for parking? Spit on the sidewalk? Crossed the street on a "don't walk" signal. Those are "laws"

"Have you ever failed to use a turn signal? Sped? Have you ALWAYS paid for parking? Spit on the sidewalk? Crossed the street on a "don't walk" signal. Those are "laws"" -- Yep. I've done all of those things. And when I get caught I pay the penalty.

Carlos Ponce

What was the penalty for spitting on the sidewalk?

Craig Mason

I decide to not pay property taxes anymore. Think that will fly?

Bailey Jones

I'm giving up clothes entirely. Possibly marrying my dog.

So sad that our GPD and City Government are supposed to try and enforce the Governor's orders when they get no help from said Governor.

Even though I call BS on a flu strain that is no worse than other flu strains, I find it odd that so few see this Sharky's Bar fiasco for what it really is. It's an advertising gimmick. This bar is receiving thousands of dollars worth of free advertising. ("Parking lot is full") Bravo to it's marketing department.

Bill Cochrane

Fox - obviously you can't read. I said a strain of flu. I read your other post and to you it's obviously not anything other than a political statement. I will not resort to name calling as you and other democrats do.

Ethanol (alcohol) and Sodium Hypochlorite (bleach) will kill viruses on exterior surfaces, just do not inject them.
