Governor DeSantis is doing Something about State-ist Universities

We should no longer be surprised by the naked authoritarianism practiced by the radical left and their comrades in Academia. But when you read things like this, you still can help but be taken aback.

Well, this entire lockdown mentality would have never gotten off the ground. Which is why it started with a sensible idea of 15 days to slow the spread. read more
