Pretty fucked up a single judge without any medical knowledge can just overrule the an entire federal health mandate.

Mitch McConnell fucked us all.

You know what’s going to happen right? Biden enforces mask mandates – GOP ppl get mad because “muh freedumbs!”

Trump-appointed Judge removes Fed mask mandate – GOP ppl get happy because “Muh FREEDUMBS!!””

Cases skyrocket – GOP ppl get mad because “BIDEN FUCKED UP COVID”

Dropping the mandate literally mid-flight as opposed to setting a target date is a giant FU to everyone’s right to make their own heath decisions. The “you can’t make me wear a mask” crowd is pretty excited about ignoring everyone else’s rights.

> “If one of my students turned in this opinion as their final exam, I don’t know if I would agree that they had gotten the analysis correct,” said Erin Fuse Brown, a law professor at Georgia State University.

>”It reads like someone who had decided the case and then tried to dress it up as legal reasoning without actually doing the legal reasoning,” she added.

This is what happens when you appoint folks who are not qualified

If you read more about the judge who tossed the mask mandate, you’ll realise this was more of a political statement than a judicial ruling.

Legal experts said she was not qualified for her job. Medical experts say she’s much less qualified to make decisions regarding public health.

I have zero faith in Texans to shitcan him. Prove me wrong. Please.

GreyLordQueekual

All the people of Texas could have had free Healthcare or all their student loans forgiven for that price tag, but instead unsubstantiated fear wins again. Conservatives sure love wasting money for a party that claims to be fiscally conservative.

SupportySpice

Every year, Texas, through a combination of political incompetence and natural disasters, consumes and wastes untold amounts of federal dollars with little-to-zero return on investment for John Q Taxpayer.

He knew it would. Sabotaging supply chains to make the “not my president,” president look bad.

Ted Cruz Warns Disney Programming Will Soon Depict Mickey and Pluto F–king | The senator from Texas thinks the company’s opposition to Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law means it’s going to introduce X-rated content featuring animated characters “going at it.”

Remember this about the GQP — every accusation is a confession. In other words, keep your pets away from Ted Cruz.

>One of the most disturbing aspect of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, which prohibits “classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity” in primary schools (and according to critics, could be applied to later grades), is the idea that merely acknowledging the existence of LGBTQ+ individuals is somehow inappropriate for children. Obviously, second-grade teachers are not talking to eight-year-olds about sexual intercourse, but you wouldn’t know by listening to conservatives, who apparently believe that anyone who opposes this law is basically advocating for showing kids graphic sexual imagery.
Take, for example Senator Ted Cruz, who recently suggested that because Disney decided to speak out against the bigoted Florida legislation—after receiving backlash from its employees for initially refusing to do so—it’s obviously going to introduce NC-17 story lines to its children’s programming.
In an extremely weird set of remarks, even for him, the Texas lawmaker opined at a live recording of his podcast, Verdict With Ted Cruz: “I think there are people who are misguided, trying to drive, you know, Disney stepping in, saying, you know, in every episode now they’re gonna have, you know, Mickey and Pluto going at it. Like, really? It’s just like, come on guys, these are kids, and you know, you could always shift to Cinemax if you want that. Like, why do you have—it used to be, look, I’m a dad. You used to be able to put your kids on the Disney Channel and be like, alright, something innocuous will happen.”

No. Private prison, police, liquor, and pharma lobbyists don’t want them to legalize it. And they hold the purse strings.

Less than 7% of Americans are millionaires. Over 50% of Congress are.

Does it also handle dark money donations and super PACs? Does it reverse Citizens United? No? Then the floor will stay filthy.

RadBadTad

There will still be plenty of other ways for the filth to profit from their public service while in office. This bill is a good start though. I’m guessing at least half of the Democrats will be against it, as well as all Republicans.

Lol imagine trying to pass a bill that requires the very people you’re trying to pass the bill against to vote to pass it.

It only matters how they feel

Zero1030

Until this prick explains exactly how these textbooks contain CRT, I’m just going to assume he’s trying to make every kid in Florida as dumb as the average Republican voter.

rare_pooper

“It doesn’t matter how you feel,” exclaimed the governor while living in a drama filled world of his making.

thereverendpuck

It’s not CRT. At this point everything the far right objects to on education, they are calling CRT. Using the name Carlos in a math problem isn’t CRT, but the far right have been opposed to this sort of thing for years.

The question is why aren’t they honest about it at this point?
