Florida Has Not Yet Gone “All In”

Florida’s current Republican majority has done amazing things so far. (Well, I am amazed anyway.) But they have yet to go all in on their current path. Here are a few things they could do to solidify that path.

Eject Disney World from the State
Clearly Disney is woke and getting woker. There is just no place for such a distorting corporation in Florida’s culture. Evict them. The 300,000 lost jobs and billions in revenue can be replaced.

Declare Florida to Be a Christian State
Stop being wishy-washy about your professed religion, you Floridian GOPers. You know you want it. Gotta have it. Do it. SCOTUS will back you up. When the other Confederate states follow, you will have a basis for a Constitutional amendment to make the whole country a Christian nation. (And you will be a Christian hero!)

Make Owning a Firearm a Requirement
The Second Amendment suck-ups aren’t willing to go this far, Florida can! Yahoo! Make it semi-automatic so the libs heads will explode!

Close All of Florida’s Public Universities
They are just grooming a new generation of atheists and preaching Critical Race Theory. Show them who’s boss. Florida can import educated people if any are really needed.

Convert All Public Schools to Charter Schools
They aren’t as good educationally but those damned teacher’s unions keep voting Democrat, so fuck ‘em. When they lose those cushy public school jobs and actually have to work for a living, they will wise up.

Declare All Interventions to Prevent Coastal Flooding Due to Climate Change Illegal
Since those interventions are wasteful, being based upon scientific hoaxes, we will all be better off.

Declare Florida to be a Democrat Free Zone
Democrats are drag queen loving, immigrant suck-ups that don’t deserve no respect. They need to leave Florida, now! This will make the state easier to run and a happier place.

Come on Florida! We are waiting on you to lead the way to a future full of promise, well, promises anyway. Don’t expect anything good to happen.



  1. Oh my! This one is off-the-charts! Love it! Especially this: “Florida can import educated people if any are really needed.” The depth of that one remark is mind-boggling.

    • Egad, you are fast! I just posted this! I was inspired by how incredulous people were at DeSantis’s antics. So, where next I thought . . .and it seemed easy from that though forward.

      • I’m generally on the computer by 7:00 (PDT) each morning … and of course, blog posts and comments are the first things I read. After I’ve gone through the ones posted overnight, I pretty much check for any new ones off and on throughout the rest of the day. Your post and my checking apparently coincided. 😁

    • Trust me. It would be more fascinating if I weren’t in the middle of it. Kind of like watching a car crash.

  3. Florida still isn’t the worst. Texas has them beat. There’s a bill in the Texas legislature right now that looks like it will pass which would put religious “chaplains” (I put that word in quotes because there is nothing in the bill that requires them to be actual real chaplains that I’ve seen) to replace school counselors.

  4. YUCK on Florida. Trump the pathological liar and DeSantis the wicked [“effective” dictatorial “governing”] are getting votes and money from people who should know better.

    DeSantis Declares
    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) made his long-anticipated jump into the 2024 presidential race yesterday, making the announcement in a livestreamed conversation with Twitter CEO Elon Musk. DeSantis has positioned his campaign as focused on conservative populism with an emphasis on effective governing and joins a field of seven other candidates seeking the Republican nomination.

    Former President Donald Trump, whose campaign began in November, currently leads DeSantis by more than 30 points in primary polls taken before last night’s announcement. Separate polling suggested DeSantis is the second choice for roughly half of voters ranking Trump as their preferred candidate. Reports suggest a DeSantis-affiliated group has budgeted at least $200M for voter outreach in the first four early primary states—Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. The first GOP primary will be held in early January at the Iowa caucuses.

    • I think Trump will begin his strikes against DeSantis soon, typically by floating nasty nicknames, like DeFascist, etc. looking to see which resonates with his audiences.

  5. The NAACP has posted a warning travelers to NOT go to Florida. DeSantis signed laws that destroy education, our democracy and civil rights. Why would anyone want this want-to-be-dictator to be President? MY WARNING: He’s just as wicked as Trump but is much smarter!
    NAACP advises against traveling to Florida: ‘Openly hostile toward African Americans’
    Travel warning points to ‘sustained, blatant, relentless and systemic attack on democracy and civil rights’ under Florida Governor Ron DeSantis

    The largest and oldest civil rights organisation in the United States has issued a formal advisory warning travelers to Florida that the state is “openly hostile” towards Black people, people of colour and LGBT+ people.

    An advisory issued by the NAACP on 20 May comes as a response to a series of laws signed by Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis targeting classroom instruction around race and racism, gender and sexuality, and bills and administration policy aimed at LGBT+ people.

    “Let me be clear – failing to teach an accurate representation of the horrors and inequalities that Black Americans have faced and continue to face is a disservice to students and a dereliction of duty to all,” NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson said in a statement…

    • That DeSantis is “smarter” than Trump is propaganda of his campaign. I don’t think much of his “smarts.” Trump has little intelligence but makes up for the lack in various ways–cunning, shrewdness, ability to lie with a straight face, being completely amoral, etc.
