Now THAT is election Fraud..

I know Ron DeSantis was a High Priest of the Trump cult, but resorting to human sacrifice seems extreme even for him

What?

Funny DeSantis should suggest hearing loss, when he's been deaf to the science and numbers and loud and numerous calls to farking do something to help.

Florida finally figured out elections. But they're still dumb about everything else. Film at 11.

They should spend the next 6 weeks talking about how hair plugs, shoe lifts and spray-on tans can cause erectile dysfunction.

I work in the public sector. The governor may be the "boss" but the people of the state are who I serve.

If you don't talk about something, it goes away.

If Governor DeSantis should ever get COVID and need to be intubated, I volunteer to be the one to intubate him. I have never intubated anyone. But I will watch a YouTube video before I begin the process.

I will do it for free. And to save even more money by using a Sears garden hose for the intubation. A cheap Dollar Store hairdryer will inflate his lungs and kill the COVID.

Win/win.

But, but, but I was ASSURED by Ted Cruz that all the Covid talk would magically go away if Biden won the election!!!!

So if you know someone or perhaps had a relative who died of COVID, just remember what was more important to this guy and the Trump administration

I would have just said "Don't talk about COVID, just talk about the flu, loss of smell, muscle fatigue, and asthma".

Twunts.

Covid is a microcosm for global warming.  Except Republicans in Florida will drown before admitting the latter exists.

The worst part about having coworkers who watch Fox news, is watching the propoganda in real time.

Ya, of course it looks like "everyone" stopped talking about COVID, you only watch fox news and YouTube. Everyone else is still talking about it, you just choose to only listen about election fraud about alleged boats and trucks full of ballots from North Korea or wherever.

I swear to christ, when Dolt 45 said you only get higher positive cases because you test for it, I was hoping every Republican would simultaneously have their head explode from the doublethink that is their daily lives. It is confirmation bias with a sample size of one, sometimes 2.

DeSantis can fark right off. His policies around this pandemic has resulted in unnecessary suffering and deaths. What he's done shouldn't be forgotten because DeSantis clearly has aspirations for higher office. Expect him to pick up the Trump playbook and run with it for the Presidency at some point.

Wrote this and am posting it here.

It would be a commercial, a bit, or something similar.

Dubya. B. Rock, and Bill are (spaced apart) at a large table eating in a private conference room.Wait staff (all wearing masks) bring out their orders.Steaks for all of them. As a side, Dubya has a loaded mashed potato, B. Rock has grilled vegetables and Bill has fries.A waitress walks up to bill and asks if he would like catsup.He replies, " For my fries?Yes, please."Dubya remarks on B. Rocks choice of ordering his steak black and blue, stating that he is impressed.B. Rock responds he figures it's a compliment to the animal.Bill says he might know a vet who can save it.They all laugh.
At the end of the course, a waiter comes by and asks if anyone would like desert.Dubya and B. Rock politely decline while Bill requests a single scoop of vanilla ice cream.Dubya widens his eyes.B. Rock asks Bill "Not two?".Bill replies, "That is how you get fat.""But Diet Coke-," Dubya starts and Bill puts up a finger. Dubya pauses and Bill swings his finger down to point to a glass filled with a clear liquid."Switched to water."B.Rock chimes in, "Now I'm impressed."They all laugh.
Dubya stops laugh, puts his hands down on the tile, looks at the one then the other and smiles."Let's call Jimmy"."Oh Lord," remarks Bill, shaking his head.Dubya pushes a few buttons on his non-descript phone and B. Rock whispers to Bill "Look at Mister Wizard here".Dubya quickly shoots B. Rock a glare.B. Rock and Bill both laugh and then "wow. . .nice""that's cool" when they see the call appear on the large screen in the room.
On the screen it says, "Dialing Jimmy".Jimmy face appears on the screen and after a moment sag, "George.Hey, what's up?"
George, on Jimmy Carter's phone (the other's cannot be seen as it is zoomed in) trying to sound serious."Yeah, Jim.Sorry to bother you. But I am writing a book.Can you describe the bunker underneath the White House for me?"
Jimmy listens earnestly before respond."I'm afraid I cannot help you there.I have never seen it."
From the background, Bill and B. Rock yell, "NEITHER HAVE WE!!".The camera zooms out showing Bill, Dubya and B- Rock laughing heartily.
Jimmy is seen smiling and then somber."I am glad to see you guys in good spirits.What with COVID and everything."
Bill stops laughing and replies in a serious tone."Which is why we got together. Supposedly there is a vaccine coming soon."
Dubya speaks next, "When it does, the people are going to want to know if it is viable or not.And not just those in the US."
B. Rock continues the dialogue, "We have decided that someone, or someones,"gesturing to Bill and Dubya," step up and be an example."
Jimmy interjects, "You're going to be proverbial guinea pigs, aren't you?"
Dubya "It's not like that.There is real science here."
Bill laughs and says, "Extensive research and testing by trusted companies."
B. Rock, "We want everyone to be informed and confident of what to expect coming months."
Bill, "It is going to take some patience."
Dubya, "But we have been through worse."
B Rock, "We can do this"
Pan out to all four presidents (X screen showed each president's face in a different quarter, saying in unison "Together".
OPTIONAL ENDING
Back to the table with Bill, Dubya, and B. Rock.Camera is zooming out.As it does, the audio
"Real science?"B. Rock jokes.
"Hey now.I created the Pandemic task force.You just built upon it."
Bill chimes in, "What happened to it?"
B. Rock replies, "Let's not go there."He looks away and raises his hand with two fingers up."Waiter, check please."

Does anyone seriously think that talking about reality in Florida would have made a difference?  Florida gonna Florida.

Why? Most of the deaths in this pandemic have been sacrifices to appease Trump.

They may drown in their own fluids first, at this rate.

He just picked up where Rick "The Serpent" Scott left off. As Governor he slapped a gag order on the State's Dept. of Environmental Protection regarding any mention of global warming.

Much will be lost. The fact that we can't get 1/2 of our state to listen to reason is no different than almost any other state in this farked up country. Republicans are the farking problem, not the states they live in. Unless we are talking about Mississippi, yeah, fark that place.
