Wait … What?
You mean to tell me that draconian lockdowns, shutdowns, business and school closures, depression, isolation & suicide have, it turns out, not been effective?

Horowitz: With no lockdown or mask mandate, Florida has roughly same hospitalization level as 2018 flu season
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.
Thank heavens there are still conservative leaders that refuse to bow before these statists.

Florida governor proposes ‘bill of rights’ to protect college students against strict COVID policies
- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has proposed a “bill of rights” to protect college students’ rights with respect to coronavirus guidelines.
- The “bill of rights” would protect students from being thrown out of college for socializing and gathering in groups.
I’ve actually joked in past about if someone gets hit by a bus, the authorities will count him as a Covid-19 death. I guess it’s not a joke.
And hey – if you can’t believe State bureaucrats, who can you believe?

Florida man in his 20s listed among COVID-19 fatalities — but health officer says he died in motorcycle crash
While Florida listed a man in his 20s as among the state’s COVID-19 fatalities, a county health officer told WOFL-TV that the man died in a motorcycle crash.
The station was looking into records that showed two individuals in their 20s as coronavirus fatalities and asked Orange County Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino if either person had any underlying conditions.
Ain’t this is a funny old world. I discussed this very topic in my most recent video podcast. You may view it here.

It turns out that keeping waves of illegal immigrants out of our communities is a bipartisan goal
In retrospect, Donald Trump locked up the Republican presidential nomination the day he announced his candidacy. In words that will forever be etched in the minds of voters who were captivated by his boldness, Trump came down the escalator at Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, and announced, “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.” He spoke directly to the unspoken concern of millions of Americans when he declared, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
by Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist:
The federal government is planning on dumping up to 1,000 illegal immigrants in two Florida Counties every month. Governor Ron DeSantis had no idea this was going happen. He was given no warning.
I discuss just how wrong this is and how it can possibly still be happening under president Trump.
Democrats are in a panic over several recent State abortion restriction laws.
Mayor Joy Cooper of Hallandale Beach, Florida, was forced to resign by Sunshine State Governor Rick Scott on Friday after her Thursday arrest on three felony charges: campaign finance violations, official misconduct and money laundering. At least four Florida news outlets have run reports failing to tag Cooper, who is accused of accepted illegal campaign finance checks from Russians, as a Democrat.
A Florida man was traveling South with his family on the way home from a wedding in New Jersey when the Maryland Transportation Authority Police (MTAP) began tailing his Ford Expedition. After about 10 minutes, the police pulled him over and told him they knew he owned a gun. They demanded he produce it for them on the spot — even though the firearm was locked away in a safe 1,000 miles away.
John Filippidis of Hudson, Fla., told The Tampa Tribune he wasn’t speeding or doing anything illegal when the cops took an interest in his car. In fact, he’d intentionally left his Kel-Tec .38 pistol locked up at home precisely because he understood the potential legal headaches that can arise when traveling through multiple State jurisdictions with a firearm.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The gift of a gun may be high on many Floridians’ holiday shopping lists.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says it is on target to conduct nearly 1 million background checks this year on private firearm purchases. The projection comes as the department is reporting a record number of reviews conducted over the Thanksgiving weekend that typically kicks off the year-end holiday shopping season.
We have definitely seen an increase in the number of background checks over the past several years,” FDLE spokeswoman Samantha Andrews said Monday.
Drivers in Florida had to swerve to avoid an enormous bubbly surprise by the side of the road on Monday morning.
And now police in Boca Raton are investigating who committed the age-old prank of pouring entire bottles full of dish soap into the fountain at the entrance to the Loggers’ Run neighborhood.
Witnesses described how the joke-gone-wrong caused the fountains on the waterfall to create a huge foamy mess that grew out of control as it spread across the road.

This is the huge soapy bubble that bellowed out of a fountain in Boca Raton, Florida on Monday
‘I thought maybe it was like fake ice or something,’ said witness Joyce Seays. ‘But when I got closer, I saw that it was kind of moving and I was like, ‘nope, it’s soap suds.’
On her way to work when she came across the huge mess, Seays said that the prankster didn’t even bother to clear away the evidence when they committed their joke.
The bubble cloud spread onto the road and spilled its foamy mess in front of drivers

She said that several empty bottles of dish soap could be seen scattered near to the waterfall attached to the fountain.
Seays also spoke about the potential for an accident caused by the bubbles.
At first drivers were perplexed as to what the giant soapy bubble cloud was
‘If it would have gone in front of me, covering my windshield, I would have panicked,’ said Seays.
The bubbles did not just create a road hazard for several drivers. The prank could also prove expensive to clean up from the waterfall.
