The school year starts in Florida, this week and the DeSatan law goes into effect,
So now teachers and students learn a new history, don't teach our children that's it a hard cruel work out there, it might hurt their feelings. it should be interesting when these young adults have to face the reality of all society has to offer the good, bad and ugly (not the movie)

In a couple of weeks, I’ll walk back into my college classroom and continue my second decade of teaching at one of Florida’s universities

In truth, I worry more about my students in marginalized communities feeling “psychological distress” with my reading lists and our class discussions. As one of my students said when discussing “Heavy,” “I’ve lived this book, and I’ve heard other stories from my mother. Instead of informing me, it just reminded me of the pain of the real world.” Too often, people in marginalized communities sit silently in class when white people express shock at their experiences. And, yes, it’s uncomfortable, but it’s also necessary.

Imagine being a conservative in college classrooms these days

Ousted Progressive Prosecutor Files 1st Amendment Lawsuit Against Ron DeSantis

...
The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, seeks to have DeSantis' order rescinded, Warren reinstated, and a permanent injunction issued against DeSantis from retaliating further. The lawsuit notes that the letters Warren signed did not reference any specific Florida laws, nor were there any such cases pending before Warren.

Warren was elected twice by Tampa-area voters as Hillsborough County State Attorney for the 13th Judicial District, where he carved out a reputation as a progressive prosecutor. He started a conviction integrity unit to root out and overturn sloppy convictions. He also announced his office would no longer pursue "resisting without violence" charges, an offense that had become derisively known as "biking while black" because it was overwhelmingly applied against black bicyclists. The move came after the Justice Department released a 2016 report that found that 75 percent of bicyclists stopped by Tampa police were black.

Warren's replacement, Susan Lopez, announced in an office memo that she was rescinding that policy and resuming enforcement, outraging the local chapter of the NAACP.

"Why would you go back to such a policy that continues to institutionalize and continues to perpetuate systemic racism?" NAACP Hillsborough chapter president Yvette Lewis said. "It takes us way back. Erases all of the conversations that we had."
...

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 referenced in the article I linked.

It is interesting to note which law enforcement leaders were flanking DeSantis at his Aug. 4 press conference, eager to play their part in front of the cameras to paint Warren as soft on crime. One of those officers was Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, who started a "predictive policing" program that is now the subject of both a Justice Department probe and a federal civil rights lawsuit after a Tampa Bay Times investigation found police endlessly harassed residents who ended up on the sheriff's list.

DeSantis was also flanked by Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, who once said on Fox News that marijuana is "killing people every day." As Radley Balko noted in The Washington Post, murders have surged in Judd's district, much more than in Warren's, despite Judd's decidedly un-woke politics.

The Florida Senate will ultimately have the power to remove or retain Warren, but the Republican-controlled chamber often moves in lockstep with DeSantis.

So the genius Regressives in AZ sold their water rights to Saudis, same as TX Regressives sold oil refineries at Port Arthur to Saudis.

How fucking stupid are the people???
.
Pretty stupid when you remember how many locales sold water to Nestle for $200 a year, and allowed them to take upwards of $350 million profit. I imagine when we have a severe water shortage, the people who okayed those agreements better have really secure doors to their homes.

Everyone should view that Teachers video. He explains very clearly how Conservatives only care about Profit and Property, and Liberals care about People....

He's not wrong. Republicans have prided themselves for over a century as being the political party for "the businessman" and that has generally entailed passing laws that hurt workers and and lower income families; all to "help business" of course.

Republicans have been in favor of pollution and against education, and also (oddly enough) against infrastructure. It doesn't make any sense that Republicans would be against spending tax money to build infrastructure that would benefit business, but then if you stop to think 1- they're dumb as shit, and 2- they're favor of the meanest kind of slum lord management ever seen, and 3- infrastructure also benefits people with a different skin color than them.... then it makes sense after all.
 

Ease the sheet.

I doubt think Republicans have an issue with infrastructure.

It's the funding and usage of it which really gets their goat...
