    Don't MoveTo Florida

    I'm not that kind so you imagine wrong. I don't know a thing about it. I had a nuisance gator once. Then I didn't. But I never had a tag nor made any money. Gator gumbo was outstanding though.

    Elect a Nazi, Get a Nazi

    Ousted Progressive Prosecutor Files 1st Amendment Lawsuit Against Ron DeSantis Some people just appear to certain cops to need stopping and frisking. As we saw in NY, this is actually OK if their motives are consistent with TeamD's highest priority. I'm guessing that's the press conference...
