Again, am I the only FL voter wondering: why do we NEED an election "police force"? To stop voter fraud? Just post some night watchman at the Villages up there in Orlando. Seems to be the source of the problem? :roll:

I again cannot fathom why this guy is popular. Seems determined to tackle nonexistent problems, while the real ones in the state (like high rents and housing prices or a broken unemployment system) are left unaddressed.

This is just state-funded voter suppression and intimidation. Yay. :|
Sounds like fascism.

Enthusiasm for impeaching top Biden officials has spread from the fringes of the House Republican conference to its mainstream — foreshadowing the intense pressure Kevin McCarthy will face from his colleagues if he's Speaker next year.

Why it matters: For the first year of President Biden's term, it was mostly the hard right of the GOP who entertained impeaching the president and his Cabinet secretaries. But those deliberations are now happening among a much larger group — even with virtually no precedent or legal justification.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Roma McDaniel Has Hissy Fit Over President Biden's Remarks At White House Correspondance Dinner.

https://www.rawstory.com/rnc-biden-whca-dinner-speech/.

President Joe Biden's Saturday evening speech at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner drew anger from the Republican National Committee.

"This is the first time the president attended this dinner in six years. It's understandable, we had a horrible plague followed by two years of Covid," Biden joked in a video posted to Twitter by the organization.

"Joe Biden just called President Trump 'a horrible plague.' Reminder: Biden ran on uniting the country," the RNC posted to Twitter.

The clip did not include Biden's following line, "Just imagine, if my predecessor came to this dinner this year, now that would have been a real coup if that occurred."

As opposed the ReThug idea of Unifying the Country?

Promoting lies that the Traitor won the 2020 Election.

Supporting the Russian Dictator Putin.

Burning Books.

Banning Abortion.

Passing restrictive Voter Suppression Laws.

That is the ReThug plan to unify the country. Unifying the country using lies of Voter Fraud, Bigotry, Destruction of Voter Rights, Legislating Control Over Women's Reproductive Rights and Burning Books.

That is ReThug unity.

I prefer Democracy over Fascism thank you.

I would call the previous president a social epistemological malfunction brought on by an inspired and exquisitely organized Russian disinformation campaign aimed at ending democracy once and for all. But then that's just me.

The horrible plague is the intellectual dishonesty abroad in the land. It's caused by the intentional manipulation of public opinion by propagandists who have adopted the Russian Comintern model of agitation propaganda. They didn't invent the Internet but they weaponized it. They have the hot setup right now, and no one else knows what to do about it.

The aim is not to spread truth as much as to annihilate it. It's not post-truth, it's anti-truth. They don't care what the truth is, only that people fight about it, because that distracts them from the real power grab, which is to restore a system that worked great in 12th century Europe. Ideally, everyone's social position is determined at birth, but absent that there's always mortal combat. Overpopulation is not a problem because most people have nothing, and their lives are nasty brutish and short. The best fighters help determine who gets to be king. Everyone else eats bugs and scrapes out a wretched short living, then dies without leaving a trace.

Covid should have been a medical issue, but it never was. It was an exercise in denial from the start. Throw in a little social Darwinism, add a dash of rule by the strongest, simmer indefinitely in a boiling conflict of fanciful and largely erroneous ideas, and you've got the 2020s.

Fuck Brandon....Let's Go Darwin.

I've checked sources and there is not such financial term as, "Bidenflation".

Under President Biden the deficit is shrinking, as opposed the fact the Traitor and his tax cuts increased the deficit.

Best Economy is 50-Years.

Over 6,000,000 Jobs created in year - under President Biden. The Traitor lost jobs.

Lowest Unemployment in since Viet Nam.

World Wide Inflation is NOT the fault of Biden.

Fuck Off Troll.

Calling someone a Redneck is not the same as using the N word. There is no equivalence here and it shouldn’t have to be explained.

The N word is a conscious tool used to keep an ethnic group in a subservient position. It implies less than human right up front.

I don't know who started "redneck" and I've seen various stories for its origin. I do know that it too is derogatory, though often in usage one will find that it isn't. It is seemingly less ethnically based, since it's not really applicable to all whites, just the ones who weren't rich enough to be either college educated or socially desirable. Obama was still the n-word, but by no stretch was JFK a redneck.

But the Troll used the "N" Word and got away with it. Such language is and itself racist and intolerant. He used it for shock value and he still got away with it.

Use of such language, regardless of purpose or intent is wrong.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redneck

Redneck is a derogatory term chiefly, but not exclusively, applied to white Americans perceived to be crass and unsophisticated, closely associated with rural whites of the Southern United States.[1][2] Its meaning possibly stems from the sunburn found on farmers' necks dating back to the late 19th century.[3] Its modern usage is similar in meaning to cracker (especially regarding Texas, Georgia, and Florida), hillbilly (especially regarding Appalachia and the Ozarks),[4] and white trash (but without the last term's suggestions of immorality).[5][6][7] In Britain, the Cambridge Dictionary definition states: "A poor, white person without education, esp. one living in the countryside in the southern US, who is believed to have prejudiced ideas and beliefs. This word is usually considered offensive."[8] People from the white South sometimes jocularly call themselves "rednecks" as insider humor.[9]

[snip][end]

I personally don't think people should be mocked for being Southern, rural, or poor; I don't find doing that to be very progressive. It's a bit like using "hillbilly" or "cracker" as a slur - as noted above. (Although I reserve the right to say that J.D. Vance is full of shit, now maybe more than ever.)

False equivalence. Both are epithets. But so are words like "dork" and "nerd." So, your bullcrap comparison ends there.

A reminder of just a few of the differences between "redneck" and "nigger:

No Black person has ever:

• made laws that forced "rednecks" into separate and inequal conditions

• barred "rednecks" from an education

• used derivatives of "redneck" as judges and lawyers in courts of law

• made "rednecks" ride the back of the bus

• forced "rednecks" to drink from separate water fountains and sit in separate waiting rooms

• disenfranchised "rednecks"

• forced "rednecks" step off the sidewalk when walking down the street

• deputized people of African descent all over the country to carry out mob justice against "rednecks"

• murdered "redneck" men for looking at a Black woman, and then refused to pass anti-lynching legislation until 2022.

No Black person has ever seceded I mean tried to form a new country in order own, buy, sell, breed, and rape "rednecks."

Can't say the same for so-called rednecks. "Rednecks" still fly an old slavery/segregation flag at GOP rallies and own it in the form of t-shirts and other apparrel.

"Rednecks" and other conservative whites have done all these things and more to people of African descent, and both vote to keep doing so through the current GOP.
