What is it with the whole "Mom" angle anyway? I'm referring to things like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, 1 Million Moms and similar organizations.

Yes, giving birth is the most dangerous thing a woman can do; but, I would say that every mom is much more than JUST a mom. Maybe she's a doctor, maybe she's a lawyer, maybe she crochets cat sweaters, maybe she vagazzles labradoodles...

Regardless of what she does, a woman is so much more than the fact that she had a child.

/ It is my opinion that groups that reduce women to the product of their womb do a great disservice to the fairer sex, at the very least.

I can see that, but I think the predominant angle is that they're still the primary caregivers for the next generation, which regardless of your empowerment or politics, tends to carry the most water.

Actually...

I'm a very involved dad and I'M RECREATIONALLY OFFENDED!

Well, obviously they weren't so worried about protection before the pandemic either, were they?

It's amazing how spectacularly we have failed to regulate internet companies like 4Chan, Facebook, and others.  We now have a large portion of the country who believe in all sorts of dangerous ideas.  It's a cancer.  What we will see is another economic crash, likely worse than the first one since there won't be a rescue package until maybe January.  Small businesses on the edge will be gone.

DeLand is the asshole of Florida.  Actually most towns in Florida are the asshole of Florida, but DeLand is a pretty shiatty asshole  even when compared to the other assholes.

Deland is a very popular destination for skydivers. There is a small airport that caters to them. Many people go there every year to jump out of "de plane". Better?

There used to be an awesome mushroom field in DeLand right next to a state park. That's about the extent of my experience with the place.

Marketing term. Same as "families". If they slap "family" or "families" on something, it's more palatable to the rubes. If you see an organization or law or anything else for "family" then odds are good it's something you want to steer clear of.

The meeting started more than an hour late Tuesday at about 2:30 p.m., after DeLand police officers trespassed the women and removed them from the building.


I don't even know how one does that.

1. The concept of free speech in general and the first amendment in particular are things.

2. Almost all "regulation" will result in the shutting down or ultra-heavy moderation of all message boards, including this one.  Fortunately, such regulation will likely be found illegal; see #1 for details.

I suspect it's a legal term that means certifying officially that they are trespassing.

/but it sounds kinda kinky

Based on the number and type of stories we see about Skydive DeLand, I initially read that as 'craters them'

It's a common legal term. The police read a statement to the individual that essentially says they are no longer welcomed by the property's possessor. The statement concludes by giving the individual two choices: either leave willfully or be arrested. At this point the individual has been "trespassed."

It's where the police come and give you an official written trespass notice that says you are not welcome on the owner's property and that if you come on the property again, it will be considered trespassing and you will be arrested for it.  Disney did it all the time with problem guests when I worked there ("oh damn, that dude that gave you a hard time at the turnstiles got trespassed!!").  It's much easier to make a subsequent trespassing charge stick when it's documented like that.

Yeah, it sounds kinda weird, but that's actually the common terminology.  It's a lot shorter than "gave the suspects a trespass warning".

srsly, bro, I'm from Escambia county. There are any number of cities, towns, villages, and hamlets in NW Florida that could give either DeLand or Sanford a good run for their money.

Where else you going to find a town named "Two Egg"??

I just was watching a clip of Kristi Noem's idiotic comments about masks at a Trump rally last night.

How did our education get so bad that people now believe a just thought in their head is enough to endanger the right to life of another person?

We have to get smarter if it is not too late already.

I was going to say any community in Clay County, but you have me beat. (Gainesville is an oasis of culture, Orlando City limits proper is decent, and if you know where to go in Broward and Dade counties, you'll meet decent people).

It's much cheaper and easier to teach things like critical thinking and moral philosophy in existing school buildings.  But, you know, those were defunded because it actually means people will think seriously and not rubber stamp a republican candidate every two years.

the women claimed they had medical exemptions that allowed them to not wear masks in public.

Snauxflaque disease. Lack of recognition of the sufferer's uniqueness and need for special privileges and treatment can lead to a meltdown.

3. Even if it were legal, the cost of doing so would drive most message boards out of business.

DeLand is a much better place than the real asshole of Florida - South Florida. Moved to DeLand to get away from the "cream of the crop crud" of Broward.

We truly live in the land of stupid.

There is a reason that about two-thirds of whites without a college degree voted for Donald Trump in 2016, while only 38 percent of whites with a four-year college degree voted for Trump. Uneducated people are generally not as good as educated people at determining when they are being lied to, because they are not as good at distinguishing between the credibility of different sources. There is a reason why so many uneducated people are still sticking with Trump in 2020, despite the fact that his pandemic nonresponse needlessly cost hundreds of thousands of lives and his only major policy accomplishment was a tax bill that harmed them to give away money to obscenely rich people. These folks do not (yet!) have the wherewithal to determine that the Fox News pundits screaming lies at them all day are not actually on their side and are not equivalent sources to the thousands of whiny liberal scientists, economists, and frazzled Above the Law columnists gently urging self-beneficial corrections to their worldview.

"All this for a mask. All this because you guys are sheep. You're doing exactly what they say, you guys are a bunch of sheep. Next thing you know it's going to be vaccines, you guys just going to sit there and (expletive) take it like little (expletive) sheep. Pathetic. You guys are pathetic," the woman yelled as she was escorted out.

I look forward to reading of her death due to a preventable disease.

And I wonder if she brushes her teeth like she was told as a child.
