You have the luxury of rendering judgment on the world outside of Oklahoma because you are protected by a governor (Republican) and legislature (Republican majority) that does not go to extremes (like that Michigan gov).
And yes, I agree . . . you don’t need “protection”. But since you have it, that’s why I say “luxury”.
Now let’s say you don’t have the luxury nor Oklahoma’s pedestal because you live in New York City . . . where de Blasio’s NYPD recently wrestled a gal to the ground in what has become a high profile arrest for . . . NOT WEARING A MASK.
I suspect you’ll still make yourself heard (and I applaud that effort) even if you don’t have Oklahoma’s bully pulpit. The risk, of course, is getting those metal bracelets slapped on and spending some time in the graybar hotel.
Does Oklahoma have COVID-19 issues? Sure.
(Well, more accurately: is Oklahoma addressing PERCEIVED corona virus issues?)
Oklahoma is holding their COVID-19 response down to a low roar (i.e. not going to extremes).
For example, Georgia, Oklahoma and Alaska have begun loosening lockdown orders on their pandemic-wounded businesses. It’s significant that these three states are the only ones in the US to do so.
They’re being criticized for loosening lockdowns too fast . . . by the likes of Fauci clones, et.al.
No need to make a rant. You’re preaching to the choir.
