De Santis copied Hakkim Jeffrey's alphabet x "over" y speech in his opening

of the camppaign speech. (Maybe it was a day or two later.) Watch him. He is totally unoriginal. He stole the parents right to book ban stuff for Youngkin's parents' rights campaign.

RNC Chair Says Debt Default Would Help Republicans

RNC Chair Says Debt Default Would Help Republicans

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel told Fox News that the U.S. potentially defaulting on its debt “bodes very well for the Republican field.”



And people on SS or Medicare are going to have to go into what little savings they have to survive. Less small dollar donations for Democrats in 2024. Less power in the hands of the poor or retired. The GOP is at war with average Americans.

DeSantis Flip-Flops on How to Pronounce His Own Name

DeSantis Flip-Flops on How to Pronounce His Own Name

“A lot of names in politics are hard to say. Pete Buttigieg sold T-shirts to supporters of his 2020 presidential campaign that had instructions on how to pronounce his Maltese surname. This year in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court election, Janet Protasiewicz ran ads showing people mangling her Polish name,” the New York Times reports.

“But it’s hard to recall a prominent American politician who has offered alternate pronunciations of his or her own name before Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida.”

“When he was sworn in for a second term as governor in January, he said, ‘I, Ron Deh-Santis.’ This month, he began a video for the National Day of Prayer by saying, ‘I’m Gov. Ron Dee-Santis.'”



Deh is more of a "of" like Ron Deh Sanctimonious. Or Ron Deh Saster. With Dee the nicknames don't flow as easily.

Of course GOP only wants to talk about limiting spending and not

touching revenue. They want to put spending in a box and as numbers of people join social security and medicare, democrats will have to cut because there would be no point to increase revenue.

Debt Limit Talks Stall Again

Debt Limit Talks Stall Again

“Debt limit talks between the White House and House Republicans stopped, started and stopped again Friday at the U.S. Capitol, a dizzying series of events in high-stakes negotiations to avoid a potentially catastrophic federal default,” the AP reports.

White House communications director Ben LaBolt said Saturday that “Any serious budget negotiation must include discussion both of spending and of revenues, but Republicans have refused to discuss revenue.”

Politico: “Privately, the White House shares some of the progressives’ anxiety that McCarthy will balk at the last minute, or prove unable to sell his conference on whatever deal is reached. But officials believe they have no choice but to forge ahead.”


They want to cap "spending" so democrats cannot undo Trump taxes

and then spend more. They will be limited if there is a "spending" cap.

Debt ceiling deadlock centers on 2024 spending levels

Debt ceiling deadlock centers on 2024 spending levels

White House and House Republican negotiators are at a stalemate over capping spending levels in the 2024 budget.

Why it matters: The deadlock resulted in a pause in debt ceiling talks on Friday morning as the fiscal cliff draws nearer.

What we're hearing: “The White House wants to continue to spend more money," Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) told Axios.



Are they capping "spending" levels so even if Biden raises taxes the Democrats will not be allowed to spend more in the years to come? And to force them into entitlement cuts in the years to come as things get more expensive as more people reach medicare and social security age?

He doesn't want Biden to have a win on the border. Fewer people are

trying to cross because of Biden's new laws. DeSantis can't let that narrative stand.

True this. Plus freedom is an Indigenous thing. Every library in France in the

1600 and 1700s has the books on the Jesuits in New France. (There were not a lot of books at that time). Then the French 'came up' with Freedom as a philosophy. The Jesuit priests were like "nobody tells you what to do? no seriously" to the Indigenous of new France. The Jesuits were from Europe where there were royalty and popes and
cerfs. I read that somewhere.

Shhhhhhhh. Don't tell the Republicans. Books are so dangerous to them.

They are against wholesomeness. They want people to grow up

confused, intolerant and servile, and so scared of crime and poverty they vote for a strongman. No wonder DeSantis is taking on Disney. They want people to grow up in an unstable childhood or in a family with control issues because those two things make one more likely to follow a cult when they grow up.
