It may just be a typo but the more I consider it the more I think the Florida state legislature should pass an Act changing the name to Glorida. It is about as hare brained as anything else they spend their time on.

My most frequent typo replaces o with i. I’m not going to tell you what that has done to my hometown’s name on mailing lists, but it does make people titter.

I live in Massachusetts and it’s the only thing keeping me sane right now. This shit is crazy and at least I live here but this is not the front page news it should be.

The FL head of the Republican Party and his founder of Moms for Liberty wife being embroiled in a sex scandal is so on brand. Pay attention to what they condemn the loudest. It is always, always an admission of their hypocrisy. Keep fighting. Keep giving. Keep shining these spotlights.

New Orleans Sewage and Water Board being screwed is sadly not a precursor for this idiocy. Funding for healthcare and insurance, public benefit projects of all sorts have been rejected by these zealots. In many cases, their own base gets fucked the most by their doing. Biden has gotten recent press for declaring the intent to eliminate lead in water pipes. How many stupid ass states will not accept funds will remain to be determined.

Interesting thing about the Idaho EMTALA preemption case is that the state was ok with leaving the law enjoined (blocked) until the legislature belatedly jumped in, raising new arguments, and got an all-Trump appeals panel to unblock the law. Then the full court voted to reblock the law pending en banc rehearing and Idaho and the legislature ran to SCOTUS.
