Why does everything in the US seem to be about Florida right now ?

Big-dick (or small ?) syndrome by FL Governor De Santis ?

Every major (crappy) news seems to come from there right now: hate the gays, hate the trans people, hate teaching racially correct history in school. Hate leftwing people.

The state even looks like a dick on a map.

FL and DeSantis have taken over as the Loon Media obsession since Trump left office. They have to keep the base outraged about something not looking at what a mess Biden has created.

Maybe it's just the media you consume. I haven't seen much about Flo Rida lately.

Ad for the Florida man thing that has to do with their open government laws

Oh, that's easy to answer.

Both the Dem powerful media and the Republican anemic media are playing up the Florida laws in order to turn out their supporters for the Congressional elections in November.

The Dems scream: "Republicans hate gay and transgender people."

The Republicans scream: "Dems want to kidnap and groom our children."

That's the tone of today's American politics. (No wonder the Russian Butcher did not fear invading Ukraine. "What a bunch of nuts!" he may have thought to himself.)

Florida used to be a nice state to vacation until not long ago, but now it seems to go off the deep end with its new Republican leadership and stranglehold on the state ...

It is incredible how the guy is setting the tone there and how the rest of the Republican party is following him on authoritarian and minority-bullying politics.

The Republicans there are really going down a very anti-science path. Very superficial, based on no substance.

What exactly do you mean with this post ?
You posted a gif of Bugs Bunny cutting Florida off from the US.

That's a typical bullshit leftist response to anything that's Conservative. I'm just telling you that YOU people will be cut off from this country before we will. ;)

Big Ron the front runner for 24 if Trump doesn’t run, so anything he does will be attacked by the MSM and praised by Fox.

DeSantis is running for reelection this year and for president in 2024.
Does that tell you something about his actions?
Is he winning the peoples' vote in his state?

Yet leftwing loons like AOC go there to vacation.

It's because their governor is a far right wing authoritarian asshole who want lots of faux coverage to help his presidential run. He and others have learned from mango that you have to dominate the news cycles constantly if you want to win.

Do you believe DeSantis is doing a bad job for his constituency?
The proof will be in the upcoming elections.
I like your comment: "The Republicans there are really going down a very anti-science path. Very superficial, based on no substance."

Since when does politics have to comport with reality?
People are sick and tired of being forced to wear masks in public places and the Biden Administration is pushing the DOJ to push the CDC to help overturn a ruling by a federal judge to remove the mask mandate rule.
Do you think forcing people to wear masks now is 'pro science'?
Or is it simply political?

Its an epicenter of a larger trend.

Isn't winning everything when it comes to politics.?
look the Hillary campaign back in 2016.
She paid foreign agents to come up with false evidence in order discredit and beat her opponent. That resulted in 'faux coverage' which led to a 2-year criminal investigation by Robert Mueller.

You betcha it's a larger trend.
The fascinating part is that other red states could very well adopt (controversial) laws from Texas and Florida in order to pull more voters into supporting their Conservative political platforms. And those GOP politicians won't even have to say, "If you don't vote for me then you're not black."

Which makes me wonder, where do Independent voters stand on DeSantis? I think his message "We will make sure that parents can send their kids to school to get an education, not an indoctrination," resonates with a majority of parents. His strategy seems to be working. His polling numbers are growing, making him the likely Trump successor.

Because the democrats are in melt down mode again. Hair on fire running through plate glass windows.

Even see it in your silly post. Describing the state as a "dick". A first grade level attack against the state. This is just the start. Musk is going to buy Twitter and then the November Election. The Democrats are going to need massive safe spaces. 😄

What about these policies make Florida not a good place to go on a vacation?

Because Governor De Santis is a possible candadate for president in 2024 and democrats/liberal/progressives are ramping up their smear campaign early.
