In a death cult this counts as good news!

Soon he will ascend to full MAGA-ness and become Trump the Second, destroyer of countries.

I don't think it is *only* right wingers getting killed or permanently injured from this virus but I think it is a notable amount of them.  I will be interested to see if they can reconcile their family members dying, selves suffering in hospitals, etc., with all the bullshiat they consumed and realize the people/political movement they support with gusto, may be full of shiat in most aspects.

I'm guessing not.

Anyone suing for a mask mandate in the elementary and middle schools yet? A la Arkansas?

The 32-year-old Jones is running for Congress as an Independent against the scandal-ridden Rep. Matt Gaetz, whose district is in the Panhandle where Trump won by 50 points in some areas, and Gaetz won by 30 points in 2020.

Would giving the panhandle to Alabama be enough to turn the state blue, or would it be merely a good start?

Whatever, as long as he wasn't wearing a mask.

What happened to the Republican war cry of local control? That was once a defining principle of conservatism, that the people closest to the problem know best how to solve it.

Local control was always a nice way of saying "segregation now, segregation forever".  They knew what it meant when they said it.

Not a problem for Republicans, they will just fix the voting laws to make sure they get their rightful majority back.

My brother, an x-ray tech that's totally an infectious disease expert, has told me that everyone there that is getting it is vaccinated. He and my wonderful sister-in-law didn't get the vaccine. I feel really bad for my 1 year old niece.

/ The irony is about 2 weeks after he told me this he sent out a message to the family that he got tested and has it.

Yep.  See also Republican state legislatures forbidding cities from passing more liberal leaning laws.

There's a chance my dad is going into that morgue. I have no idea how to find out, the dude left before I entered this world and I don't care to be there for him when he leaves it. But still, there's a really good chance he's going to die. If he's like me, then he's smart enough to do the bare minimum to not die. If he's like one of my brothers, he's stupid as shiat and stubborn enough to think he doesn't have to.

Yes, there are a lot of unvaccinated MAGA cultists.

But there are also a lot of unvaccinated minorities.

Even when their loved ones die the worthless trash take one of two opinions 1) it wasn't really covid because that's a hoax 2) it was covid, but it is the libs fault billy bob didn't vaccinate, because they were talking down to us when explaining about the shots.

Give Jacksonville to Georgia and that would definitely do it.

"Local school boards are defying his executive order banning mask mandates, despite the governor's threats to withhold funding, and a federal judge upheld Norwegian Cruise Line's requirement that passengers show proof of vaccination after DeSantis threatened Norwegian with a $5,000 fine per passenger, a bill for a public health measure that would have cost millions and was correctly seen as a bully's overreach into an industry that is the lifeblood of South Florida."

The "banning local school districts from mandating masks" thing is legitimately psycho, but the cruise ship thing is absurd. It's like if Franz Kafka and Kurt Vonnegut magically got together and collaborated to see if they could write satire that was so over-the-top that people would realize they were just screwing around.

My In-laws are the ones currently pissing me off on that front. They caught & survived Covid on Round 1, are ardent anti-vaxxers and think their current immunity is somehow superior. They refuse to mask up and attend every kind of social gathering you can think of. oh yeah, and we live in Florida. If they even think they're dropping in for a visit any time soon the answer is hell no, mask or no mask. See the part that pisses me off is that they are most likely responsible for infecting their elderly parents who are skating on thin ice this week, and they often take care of my wife's brother's preteen kids and if any of those kids die from Covid I will absolutely NOT in any way hold back from calling them murderers. I have already insinuated that if they continue to do anything less than mask up then they are in fact probably guilty of manslaughter for participating in and helping spread the cult of death. The longer this goes on and the more people that die, the more I will put this back on them no matter how hard my wife tries to stop me. There's no excuse anymore.

Anti-masking and anti-vaxxing is tantamount to accessory to murder: not manslaughter anymore, this is now premeditated murder.

Confabulat: Crist is just alright with me.


Absolutely, but that's kind of the problem. Crist is just alright. He needs to be even better than that. I live in his district and am gad to be in the blue, but his main appeal is that he's not a republican (anymore)

I want a Ted Lieu, an AOC, or someone worth watching and paying attention to who actually introduces legislation or even seems engaged in the process. Crist is just kinda there, voting the right way thankfully, but doesn't seem like he's doing much else.

I know this seems like I might be "concerned" and I am, but we need to electrify what dems there are in FL to get back to at least to purple if not all the way to blue.

There will be a DeSantis variant. Whether it will be called that remains to be seen, but it will be discovered in Florida.

That's got to be incredibly frustrating.  As far as I know everyone in my family, all the way out to distant relatives, has done the right thing.  A few friends are still holdouts and it's just baffling.  I've tried just about every approach and I find myself hearing them raise the same objections over and over.  On any other matter these people will display the kind of critical faculties we associate with any normal adult.  On covid they suddenly become incapable of sorting facts from bullshiat.

I just got back from a doctor's appointment, and waited in line with a man who took it upon himself to educate everyone around him about how Covid was "just a bad flu" and how the media was blowing the whole pandemic out of proportion. He was joined by a young couple who agreed with him after "doing the research" themselves.

Did I mention the man was elderly, the couple had an infant in a stroller, and that we were all standing in line at the cancer institute, surrounded by cancer patients?

More than double it.

The FL total death #s are a lie.

Compare the total cases vs total deaths on the top 4 states. No way FL's numbers aren't bullshiat.
