AWOL in the Downfall
As the cold rains fell, on and on,
And Fort Lauderdale sank on down,
Floridians were asking,
While slogging and bailing:
Where, oh where, is our Governor Ron?
Three Travel Advisories are in Effect for Florida Because of Its War on “Woke”
The Legislature Continues to Focus on Issues Gov. DeSantis Can Boast About on the Campaign Trail
A third travel advisory has been issued for Florida. Equality Florida, the state’s largest organization devoted to fighting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender idenity, is warning not to visit or relocate to Florida. The group joins The Florida Immigrant Coalition and state chapters of the NAACP in the same message:
The move comes in response to…the passage of laws that are hostile to the LGBTQ community, restrict access to reproductive health care, repeal gun safety laws, foment racial prejudice, and attack public education by banning books and censoring curriculum.
Florida’s legislature continues to churn out culture war laws devised by Gov. Ron DeSantis. One source from within the body even told a Politico Florida reporter that the governor’s office must sign off on any changes to bills as they work through the legislature.
Florida’s elected Republicans find themselves ignoring serious problems like a crisis in homeowners insurance that is causing Florida residents to sell their homes. They have also produced no bills dealing with climate change even as the Fort Lauderdale airport had to be shut down from torrential rain and flooding. Instead, they focus on issues that Ron DeSantis wants to be able to boast about in his primary challenge to disgraced former Pres. Trump.
Donald Trump vows to his enemies he’ll fight ’em.
D.A. Alvin Bragg said of Trump, “I’ll indict him.”
Ron DeSantis’ unasked-for solution
Is to toss out the Constitution,
‘Cause he’s promised Trump not to extradite him.
