DeSantis has the state Supreme Court the GOP always wanted.

This is why you need to campaign for the Democrats as if your life depended on it!!!

Iím so sick and effing tired of GOP rule in FL!!

And now they control the goddamn court!

Iím looking at all the lazy Democrats who didnít vote for Gillum in 2018! Even with his recent problem he was still the best candidate at that time!

It starts with us, people!! Get your butt to the polls!! We need a legislature that is majority Democratic right effing now so make it happen in 5 months!!!!! Vote!!!!

Snip

For all the accolades and credentials on the resumťs of newly appointed Florida Supreme Court Justices John Couriel and Renatha Francis, perhaps the most consequential are their ages.

Couriel and Francis are 42 years old.

Gov. Ron DeSantis is turning the stateís high court over to Gen X. His previous appointees were all born in the same era. And in tapping lawyers with the prime of their legal careers ahead of them, DeSantis has all but guaranteed that a generation of legal precedent will be forged by justices put in place by Republicans.

Itís a reality that distresses Democrats and delights Republicans, who nevertheless agree that the reverberations of this younger, more conservative court will be far-reaching. Abortion, redistricting, public education, voting rights ó this court, shaped more by DeSantis than any of his predecessors, will likely tackle all of it.

You wanna scare the crap out of white America? March peacefully thru rich, white neighborhoods

Disclaimer: I am a white American.

White Americans often sit in their living rooms and watch these protests take place in inner cities, downtowns, and other areas of cities that arenít predominantly upper middle class, wealthy, or white.

Point being, itís time to really shake white Americans to their core. Take these protests peacefully thru lily white neighborhoods like The Hamptonís, 5th Avenue in Naples, Fl, or other areas where rich whites watch comfortably knowing theyíll go to sleep safely tonight. The police wonít launch tear gas into the neighborhoods of the wealthy.

That is the only way, in my opinion, to get the point across that Black Lives Matter, police brutality must end, and white people cannot indiscriminately kill African Americans.

This isnít a call for violence. This isnít to say all white people are racist or all police are bad. Itís a call to wake up to the fact that my white privilege is that I can go for a jog and no one will think Iím committing a crime. Itís my white privilege that if I go to the store, clerks wonít follow me around or think Iím passing a counterfeit bill. To borrow from a meme, even a lot of white people are sick of the racism of other white people!

Mayor Garcetti - Real men wear masks.

The whole mask thing is ridiculous. It has descended into a partisan divide. Trump and his supporters honestly believe that masks are a visible symbol of the pandemic promoted by the Left and he doesnít want people reminded of it. They also see it as a sign of weakness.

We will never convince them otherwise. But I believe that Mayor Garcetti might have a tactic for dealing with the issue. I heard him on tv today proclaiming with authority, ďreal men wear masks!Ē.

This is important because Biden will eventually be in public and will be forced to choose to wear one. He should and if I were his handlers Iíd have him dressed in work clothes - work coats (not suits), or long sleeves rolled up, etc.

All surrogates need to start saying this over and over...Ēreal men wear masksĒ. It goes right at what the Trump cult sees as a strength...not wearing one. And the Trump cult doesnít want to be seen as unmanly!

This entire issue is optics!!!

Snip...

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) criticized President Trump on Tuesday for not wearing a face mask at several public appearances outside the White House.

During an interview with MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell, the news anchor asked Garcetti about his opinion regarding the president's decision.

"Mayor Garcetti, what should the president do in terms of the way he models behavior for the rest of the country?" Mitchell asked.

"Simply put, I say real men wear face masks," Garcetti responded.
