Is there something different about the Harris County order, compared to, say, the Travis County order, that's been issued for a couple of weeks now?

Years ago Ohio had Environmental Exhaust checks for like 6 counties.The ones that Cleveland,Cinci,Columbus,Toledo,Akron and Dayton were in.Which was BS.Pollution is pollution fight it everywhere or not at all.Same here IMO if it's really contagious then strangle it on all fronts(in crowded conditions)

And this is the issue, you are an elitist and you know what is better for them. You know what is better for everyone. The hoi polloi are stupid and don't know any better so they should all (and in many cases for you be forced) to do what I want them to do, they are incapable of making proper decisions for their own life.
People who cry "elitist" are always the ones calling other groups "stupid".  Meanwhile, I'm talking about their lack of scope, which isn't their fault.  So my previous statement about blaming them once they're aware of their plight isn't looking down on anyone, because most aren't aware of it.  

But yes, many people are incapable of making good life decisions, and while they're free to do so, I'm also free to hope that things improve for them.  It doesn't make me a jerk to want that or to want that while acknowledging how hard it would be.  

I just don't see how that makes me such a bastard, but I'm just an arrogant elitist.  So I have my shortcomings.

Those pollution checks were bogus anyway.  They had some poorly trained dude who barely knew how to run the equipment, and heaven forbid you showed up with a car with a manual transmission.  And I've seen $20 change hands and the car would magically pass because he'd leave wand outside the exhaust.

The point of a mask is not to protect the wearer of the mask, it can't.  The point is to protect others around you.
I've been thinking about this lately.

What are the mechanics of the proper mask that allows it to stop outgoing viruses but not incoming viruses?

Judges are supposed to enforce the law not make the law

In this case I think the Judge over reached by requiring wearing masks under penalty of law

I've heard to police were called to bars that were allowing folks to come in and have a beer or two

not sure how many were arrested
I am aware of at least one speakeasy on the west side of town.But with so much less traffic on the road I don't want to get pulled over for a burnt out blinker or sum such

At the time there was also a charge for this which chapped my ass.While good old boys were running their Monster trucks w/o muffled manifolds on the back roads and Semis belching out soot on the interstates.The Man - "Ya you come here we want to check your 4 cylinder compact" - sounds reasonable

Yeah, it's pretty awful that they're requiring a non-invasive act by everyone to prevent the spread of a pandemic.

None of them stop viral movement.  They do limit the amount of droplet spread from a person's mouth during a cough or sneeze.

You may have seen a sneeze imaged in a photograph.  The droplets project out quite far and can infect another person.

N95 protects the person wearing it. That's why I donated all of mine.

I'm sure the people who I donated them to (nurses) know how it's done.
