"Any threat by Florida to withhold salaries from superintendents and school board members who are working to protect students and educators (or to levy other financial penalties) can be addressed using Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief [ESSER] funds at the sole and complete discretion of Florida school districts," Cardona wrote.

That is certain a take submitter, but it isn't supported by TFA.  But you didn't read past the headline did you?

Headline should be "President pledges support and funding for citizens defending themselves from domestic terrorist's threats of plagues and death."

ESSER. There's always a government acronym to save the day.

I think your sarcasm detector is broken (as is all the other people who downvoted the headline). I'm not the subby, but it's obvious to me this was a sarcastic headline. This is a humor website, after all, though the number of people in the PolTab who need to have sticks surgically removed from their rear ends is at an all-time high.

Good. Right wingers should be undermined and denigrated at all opportunity, in all places, by all peoples.

Especially plague rats.

If there's one thing the right is good at is keeping things wrong. They're also good at lying, gaslighting, racism, and corruption.

Honestly, being an adult would be declaring a national emergency and taking over COVID operations in the state. DeSantis is murdering his residents and no one is stopping him.

Biden should do an executive order saying all schools must have masks and fark their state rights to be plague rats.

The schools that wont comply will see federal agents come and arrest those in charge of the schools and they will be charged with felonies.

The difference here is that right wingers are human shiat that should be bulldozed out of human civilization. So there's that.

Also democrats aren't cheering on a mass murderer, you are. So there's that.

So am I reading you right that if a Democratic governor initiated a mask mandate you'd be happy if it were undermined?

They would be better off just cutting the welfare state off from all federal funds until they get their act together.

Or, sell Texas to Mexico and throw Florida in as a freebie.

Also, the headline is sarcastically accurate, and how Faux will portray it (or at least Newmax or any number of other entities may). How can you not take it this way? It didn't even cross my mind as the absolute truth.

Hey, Ron.  Just here to leave a giant solid shiat on your presidential aspirations.  Cleanup on Aisle 5, please.

Infection rates are going up while the mean age of the infected continues to go down. Too young to vaccinate and wear a mask in the classroom? Too young to be back in the classroom at all. Anyone who says differently is a terrible POS who would rather see children dying by the score than give up his nightly happy hour visits to Applebees.

This is the real fallout from the Trump presidency.

Dumbfark conservative politicians who will NEVER admit when it's time to re-think strategy.  Never apologize.  Never back down.  Right?

Who cares that children are dying or that the beginning of the school year is going to be a killing field.  Doughboy Ron DeSantis can't ever be seen admitting that his position needs to be rethought.

If there's any justice left in this country, this scumbag will face criminal repercussions for putting his image above the welfare of the people he's supposed to protect.

No idea how that tub of lard even sleeps at night.

It took DeSantis to do this to DeSantis. And he's still doing it.

if it was a joke it would not have linked to the NY Post.

people who voluntarily read the post say shiat like this all the time, quite earnestly and passionately. they probably have fox or oann running in the living room 24 hours a day too.

Hey, if they're encouraging defiance in order to help and protect people instead of hurt them or get them killed, then I'm all for it.  Coming from the GQP, it's a safe bet that would never be the impetus.

I did not aim to imply I thought you wrote it, I'd taken your word that you are merely trying to frame the headline as some sort of thing that resembles humour.  I'm saying if its going to be claimed as a satire despite linked by someone who visits one of the internet's various anuses, that claim is the result of a Schrodinger's Douchebag decision.
 
2021-08-15 7:24:42 PM  

Mr.Insightful: Funny enough, the first thing when I read the headline was how DeSantis is prancing around about the $1000 checks finally being rolled out to to teachers despite three of them dying from COVID within hours of each other.


All three that were not vaccinated.. could have been avoidable in so many ways.

President cannot do that.  They have broad emergency powers but the ones that allow to take over state governments would not apply here.  It would require congress to step in.

There'd have to be a more than civil unrest.  It would require an outright rebellion in the state.

In our current system the feds don't have that power unless specifically delegated by congress and it will never happen.

Well, if the Democratic governor's orders are good policy and this hypothetical Republican President of yours is trying to undermine it (which seems likely since Republicans as they exist now seem to be incapable of advocating for good policies), then yes we'd be outraged. Just like we're delighted now when the Republican governor's orders are bad policy and a Democratic President is seeking to undermine it.

I mean, it's immoral to have no mechanism by which the federal government cannot stop governors from murdering their state residents.
