DeSatan strikes again: Florida the only state to turn down millions to lessen emissions

The state transportation department left $320 million on the table, saying it wouldn’t support the “continued politicization of our roadways.”

Congress in 2021 provided $6.4 billion to states to curb tailpipe emissions and reduce the effects of climate change.

Florida was set to receive $320 million, the third most of any state.

The state Department of Transportation began drafting a plan to add trucker parking at rest stops, which staff said could fix the statewide shortage that kept drivers on the road longer, polluting more, as they searched for a place to stop.

I wouldn't either: FL Man Refused To Pay For Waffle House Tattoo

ST. PETERSBURG, FL — A Clearwater man was arrested earlier this month after refusing to pay for a Waffle House tattoo, authorities said.

Max Krejckant, 33, was charged with petit theft, a misdemeanor, according to his Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit.

He went to Ink Godz Tattoos at 5208 66th Street. N. in St. Petersburg the afternoon of Dec. 2.

After receiving the $250 Waffle House tattoo, Krejckant refused to pay for it, the affidavit said.

Just doing yard work

but always with my sidekick camera

Nov 3rd flights departing Orlando (MCO) are at 25K ft by the time I can see them, the moon still high in the sky to the northwest at 9:33 AM. While watching for more planes to spot, who should grace me with their presence but a rare high flying eagle. Unfortunately, not passing over the moon, to my great disappointment.

Not presenting this as a great photo

but just to share something from by yard. It was rather lethargic so I ran in and grabbed a camera that had a lens that would focus close enough, a 28-300 kit lens so the quality is less than a macro lens would be and I only got off one shot before he took leave of me!
