Mark Cuban Deploys His Own Private Stasi (for YOUR Health and Safety)

"For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ."
Jude 1:4

Hang on...what?!?
I wanted to get an understanding of what opening meant to businesses around Dallas. Were they opening? What precautions were they taking? Were employees in safe environments? And bigger picture, I wanted to know if these are places that I would feel safe taking my family to.

So I hired a company that specialized in this type of project,, and asked them to let me know how Dallas businesses were responding to the Open Order for Texas.

We will do this again a couple more times so we can learn what the trends are and try to learn from it.
Cuban continues:
96% of businesses were non-compliant across all mandatory protocols and all locations.
Sounds scary, doesn't it?!?

Until you dig deeper.

According to Cuban's findings:
  • The overwhelming majority of businesses are practicing so-called "social distancing."
  • The overwhelming majority of businesses use masks.
  • The overwhelming majority of food service establishments are complying with everything.
    • Ok, fine, some of them aren't in perfect alignment over how to distribute condiments.
  • The alleged "non-compliance" stems from things like retail establishments not micromanaging their lines in the way that Mark Cuban and Greg Abbott deem prudent.
Taken as a whole, the overwhelming majority of businesses are taking sensible precautions.  But they're having trouble complying with every jot and tittle of Abbott's edicts.  Some of us predicted this weeks ago.

Beyond the fact that Cuban's findings don't show what Cuban and his media sycophants suggest, however, there's another aspect that's more disturbing.  It's just creepy.  Who asked Mark Cuban to spy on his fellow citizens?!?

That Cuban put the most negative spin possible on his "data" strengthens the case for interpreting his actions cynically.

Bottom Line: We don't need grandstanding NBA team owners to know that the overwhelming majority of citizens are taking sensible precautions, but that it's very difficult to comply with every jot and tittle of these government edicts.
