Boo. My headline on this story was much better

Death Cult loves endangering people.  Their liburteeeeeee trumps your right to be safe, pun intended.

I am so sick and tired of these pills of human garbage.

Pure, distilled selfishness. That is the Republican party platform now. They just got tired of trying to hide it.

Y'know, it'd be nice if anti-maskers had an enhanced opportunity for death.

Fwiw, the republican head of the Florida senate condemned this guy for pointlessly putting this legislator's health at risk.  He hinted it may even cost him his position.

I'm not going so far as to suggest this means the tide is turning, but it's good to know even Florida Republicans can smell when a PR disaster is cooking.
 
2021-10-24 5:13:59 PM  
I'm sure other states would be happy to take in the saner Florida citizens.
 
2021-10-24 5:16:12 PM  
My guess is he will not be getting a yes vote from her for his confirmation.
And insert lots of profanity here that would have me off to banned camp for a bit if I typed it out.
 
2021-10-24 5:16:21 PM  
Oh comeon there's no way that actually happened.

<Sees Florida tag>

Oh.  That totally happened.

Is he a DeathSantis appointment? I mean, it wouldn't surprise me. Spreads death far and wide.

There's no such thing as a PR disaster in Floriduh.  What the rest of the country and a tiny handful of blue counties think is irrelevant.

Ladapo also wrote an opinion column in the Wall Street Journal saying masks have "little or no effect on respiratory virus transmission."

CDC says seasonal flu cases hit record lows around the world, but i'll just go with Ron farking DeSantis' choice for surgeon general's opinion on it over you know, literally every other health expert in the world. If one of these guys came out and said eating your own feces was a cure for Covid, it would not surprise me one goddamn bit.

Ladapo has a medical degree and PhD from Harvard.

/how?

None of the things I want to say should be put in writing and archived on the Internet, so here I am, making a post without substance as a placeholder for the truth depths of my disdain.

How is this not a lawsuit? Are they really that reckless and stupid? And careless? And heartless? Even if you're evil how do you not see the huge liability?

Even smart people can be dumber than shiat, and as we all ought to recognize by now, politics beats sense, smarts, principles, morals, and dignity every time.

He's one of Trump's anointed. DeSantis is between an orange Scylla and a derpy Charybdis - if he keeps Ladapo, he angers his own legislature and continues to kill Floridians, but if he ditches Ladapo, he angers Trumpers and continues to kill Floridians.

As DeSantis couldn't give a shiat about killing Floridians, he's just worried about being re-elected. If his legislature undermines him, he's not going to make it, but if he doesn't pander to the MAGA-lovers, he won't secure that apparently crucial "crazy-ass suicide cult" vote.

It's a pickle, to be sure.

One call from Trump and they'd all exhort him as a hero.

It's why the GQP don't have any opinions anyone's bound to respect.

A republican plague rat trying to kill a dem state senator isn't actually news.  It's just reality.  They're trying to kill all of us.  It's only an article because she's an elected official.  Ain't nothin gonna happen.  Even if he knew he was covid positive and walked into her office and coughed in her mouth on purpose nothing would happen.  It's Florida and he's a republican.  Laws mean nothing.

Prove me wrong.

/The only thing going against him here is that he isn't white.  If something negative manages to happen to him, it's cause he's not white.

Dead girl, live boy, or no portfolio.  I'm guessing the latter since the other two don't matter if you have insider trade info.

Republicans will turn on each other, but only if they can't turn a profit.

State's boards of medicine need to start revoking credentials ASAP. It has happened here or there, but this bullshiat needs to stop. 

We are already suffering enough from the nursing field being crammed with people who made a choice between nursing school or nail/beautician certification and decided on nursing...unfortunately.

Now we have farking doctors running around and spreading absolute farking lies that are detectable by anyone who cares to read some studies and find out, which seems to be excluding a non insignificant number of doctors.

The sane people outnumber the insane people, thankfully, but if we don't come together and punt this shiat in its collective ding ding, we are farked.

I think this goes further than standing up.  These idiots are becoming the "Sumo Wrestling in Rowboats" party.

Oh, he's one of the "good ones" and gets to stay up in the big house.

I'd be satisfied if we could just blast them in the face with bear spray so that they can experience respiratory failure first-hand.

"It was so shocking to me that he treated me in this manner," Polsky said. "If he is a surgeon general for the next several years, I am really concerned about a future public health emergency and not being able to rely on him for necessary guidance and proper scientific leadership."

Lady, that's why he got the job.

Ladapo offered to go outside, but the senator said she did not want to sit on the metal picnic tables on a warm day when her office was nice and spacious.

Probably would have been safer outside regardless.

The lack of action against very public antivaxer and anti-mask physicians indicates to me that the boards of medicine don't give a single fark about what people do as long as it doesn't threaten the money.

Maybe the State Senator should  "stand his ground."  that would take care of a couple of problems.
 
2021-10-24 5:48:35 PM  
It's in his contract that he can under no circumstance where a mask.

Definitely worse. McDonald's has at least once successfully launched a manned space flight.

Appointed specifically because of his pro-COVID stance.

What, she's so concerned with her health that she has to have an indoor meeting in the middle of a pandemic because it's warm out?
