Go on, DeSantis. Bite that hand.

"We're doing everything we can to make it comfortable until a comically-large state-sized trenching machine can be found"

//good luck with desantis, cuba!

Hopefully DeSantis acts like a grownup in this one moment and extends his hand towards Biden for the good of the people in his state. And then, like they did to that amorphous mass of flab from Jersey when he worked with Obama, his party can castigate, excoriate, and excommunicate him before he follows up on his greater than zero chance to be president.

Well, I'm glad they're going to learn their lesson about what living in a society is a d what is and isn't socialism....wait wait I can't even finish that with a straight face.


The state that did everything in their power to purposely increase the pandemic for America is now asking for help from the people they farked over.

Sometimes it's hard to be moral.

They also had a hurricane.

Biden is a better man than I, because I would NOT be able to resist rubbing DeSantis' nose in his hypocrisy.
 
2022-09-29 12:32:01 PM  
I really like the idea that some other farker suggest about making DeSantize bend the knee and kiss the ring publicly.

Will never happen, but it would be amusing.

It's good that one of the original bastions of investigative and breaking news was on hand to report this to us.  Thank you Vanity Fair

Do we have paper towels incoming and a couple of guys from Whitefish Montana coming in to build the power system?
 
2022-09-29 12:34:32 PM  
There's no socialism necessary. I'm sure rugged individualism and Jesus will take care of everything.

Just for the free cologne samples.


No, but really, it's a good read sometimes.

Before we spend federal funds to help them, shouldn't we balance the budget?

As Biden has stated directly more than once, he's the president, even for the folks who don't like him. Trump never understood that, because he simply can't grasp doing something that doesn't somehow benefit himself.
 
2022-09-29 12:37:46 PM  
Probably the biggest reason NOT to elect Republicans to power:

Natural Disasters.

I'm waiting for the "DeSantis uses FEMA aid money to send migrants to Long Island" article, personally.

DeSantis will get more from Biden than any Democrat ever would.  Democrats kiss the hands that slap them.
 
2022-09-29 12:38:56 PM  
Heard a press conference with DeSantis a day or two before Ian hit. He said:

"We're prepared to share all information with the White House if they're interested."

Like the Biden administration is really so petty as not to be interested in helping out people who are in middle of a natural disaster.

He'll scream about socialism and communism while he's in line to cash the checks Biden gives him.

Florida would be one of the best states for a great rewilding project.  Lots of biological diversity, still, a lush climate that will quickly overgrow our damage, and now the demolition is off to a good start.  It could be one of the great wildlife refuges of the world, with all that coast and all that area to expand.

All right, Floridians, it's time to give back, like you're always talking about, but never do, because you're way too arrogant for that.  Florida is being handed back to nature.  The Villages--yeah, get the fark out of there.

Yeah, I'm watching the chopper footage right now.  If something didn't get damaged by wind, the flood water sure did.

Fear the Clam: Go on, DeSantis. Bite that hand.


DeSantis is getting his $ in exchange for virtually nothing. There is no hand to bite. "Thanks for the $, suckers".

Biden should have required a 180 day moratorium on migrant construction workers as a condition. He failed. Ron won this public perception battle easily, as much as I hate to admit it.

Word is Biden personally called every elected official in the state yesterday. Not a single one returned his call, except for one: The lone Democrat.

Like all Republican governors he will take the money, say "It's a start" grudgingly, then angrily demand more

No, you don't. Give them what they need. But you can wish that they gain some humility, considering their previous antics.

Just like everyone else that pulls the R lever.

It's all "fark this socialism!" until they get sent the check, same as it ever was. Socialize the risk, privatize the profit.

This. That's something Trump would (and did) do. First responders don't do quid pro quo.

That's true.   Bill Clinton was always looking for the person who despised him the most and would do anything to make that person like him, and everyone knew it.   I'm not sure if that's a character flaw or w/e, but it's a darn sight better than what the GOP players are about.

They had a brief long shot of it - the anchors said they were surprised it was in better shape than they expected.
