    Journalists, please stop calling the Ron Desantis bill criminalizing protests an “anti-riot” bill.

    There were already laws against rioting.

    This is an anti-protest and anti-free speech law.

    Does anyone really miss the anxiety driven attention we had to pay to Trump. My only thoughts of him now are how soon he will be indicted and who will proceed first. For the record I have no doubt it will happen! It is only a question of when and who first — GA, NYC or the Feds?
