All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

'NEANDERTHAL": Texas celebrates zero COVID-19 daily deaths two months after reopening and lifting mask mandate
Texas on Sunday recorded zero new Covid deaths for the first time since it began tracking data on the virus in March 2020 and new cases in the Lone Star State hit a 13-month low.
It comes just two months after the state reopened, drawing sharp criticism from public health officials and President Biden, who called Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order lifting all restrictions ‘Neanderthal thinking.’
Despite those concerns, new infections and deaths have fallen steadily in Texas since the state reopened on March 2.
Abbott tweeted Sunday’s good news, adding, ‘Thanks Texans!’
Public health experts have been left scratching their heads as largely conservative states like Texas and Florida reopened early against their advice, with little consequence, while liberal states like California and New York maintained mask mandates but saw persistently high Covid case rates.
But as vaccinations ramp up, the playing field is leveling out and coronavirus cases and fatalities are ebbing nationwide.
