Open Thread | Running Down the Hypocrisy in Florida

Hurricane Ian laid waste to pretty much the entire State of Florida. The hypocrisy of the Republican elected officials😠😠😠

And, while we are looking at the hypocrisy, please explain how FAIR ELECTIONS CAN BE HELD IN FLORIDA IN NOVEMBER, which is only 4 weeks away??

A quote from the Financial Times:

“[Florida] lawmakers had ample warning about the need to act during the legislative session earlier this year, but they displayed more interest in waging culture-war battles than in helping Floridians to secure their lives and their property.”

    This is the evidence found in one of the torture rooms discovered in the liberated village of #Kharkiv region. This is what russians did on the lands they thought they would occupy “forever”. Is this the ‘peace’ that @elonmusk and other “independent thinkers” are vouching for?

    A nightmare for Putin…”Ukrainian forces pushed ahead dozens of miles into the southern Kherson region, liberating towns an villages and recreating scenes from mid-September when they swept into Kharkiv and were greeted by joyful residents”.

    So we know Sheriff Carmine Marceno failed to get people out of Ian’s way soon enough, resulting in way too many deaths as a result of Hurricane Ian, but what about deaths in the Lee County, FL jail, and its JUVENILE detention center? Anyone hearing anything?!?

    Been trying to tell you since he left office that Trump’s only remaining relevance was 1) as a criminal defendant headed for prison, and 2) how badly he’d hurt the Republicans in the midterms by sticking them with unsuitable candidates. Some of you are finally starting to see it.

    Interesting to see the shifts in opinion. Last night, walkers over! This morning, remember Access Hollywood! I don’t expect a Walker collapse – in part because there were already so many horror stories. But in a tight race you don’t need a collapse.

    NEW this morning, another bus of about 50 migrants – men, women and children who told me they were from Venezuela – arrived outside of the Vice President’s residence in Washington DC. They were then sorted into groups based on needs, by volunteers who met the bus. @NBCNews

    BREAKING: @HerschelWalker, who says abortion should be banned—likening it to murder—and there should be “no exceptions” for rape, incest, or the life of the mother, asked a woman he dated in 2009 to get an abortion (and paid for it) because “it wasn’t the right time for him.”

    Loretta Lynn, the Kentucky coal miner’s daughter whose frank songs about life and love as a woman in Appalachia pulled her out of poverty and made her a pillar of country music, has died. She was 90.

    LAPD officer Houston Tipping died after a training exercise during which he was beaten & slammed to the ground by other cops. Now his lawyer says at the time he died he was investigating a gang rape by 4 cops, at least one of whom was part of the exercise.

    Whenever the enemy gift wraps a weapon for us, the naysayers rush in to discourage us from using it to our advantage. You will know them when you see them, but they’re all around you.

    When Walker loses the GOP will blame his son not them picking a trashy, lowlife, abusive, anti black, anti lgbtq, anti woman, CTE having candidate.

    Trump sure knows how to pick ‘em

    Marjorie Taylor Greene’s messy divorce followed by Trump death threatening Mitch McConnell followed by Dr. Oz killing puppies followed by Herschel Walker fighting with his son over his abortion lie expose. The GOP is trash TV.

    Report says Trump packed Mar-a-Lago boxes himself before sending them to Archives in Jan 21. If so, it will be hard to deny he knew what was in them and what was held back. And sounds like they have an inside witness in a Trump lawyer who refused to lie.
