If you are “pro business” then be “pro mask.”

In February, Carrie Lam, the CEO of Hong Kong, declared to the citizens that masks weren't necessary to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Because she's viewed as a puppet for the Chinese communist party, the citizens of Hong Kong did as any good teenager would do and did the exact opposite of her proclamation.

They wore masks out of rebellion, and it worked. Hong Kong has had 12 deaths with a population of over 7 million. Hong Kong is open for business, the people are healthy, and the economy is going to recover faster than most.

Not to mention, “Mask Up Texas” has a great ring to it.
