The man (in the most basic sense of the term) is a revolting joke.

So DeSantis won't be happy until he can effectively spread COVID to all states with ease.

This smacks of an attempt by GQP governors to reverse the Biden Administration's impressive accomplishments with COVID. I swear De Satanist and the other GQP governors are trying to kill as many Americans as possible. It's almost like De Satanist thinks if he screws up Pesident Biden's COVID response it will improve his chances in 2024.

"Danni on Line #1...?:

I don't know exactly what you were saying there, don't really actually care. Why would any of us give a crap?

I live my life without bothering anyone, don't really understand why anyone would want to bother me. I live in real sadness but try to manage it the best I can. If you want to attack me in any way, do it directly, say exactly what you mean. Don't make posts like that which don't say what your problem is with me. Say what you mean. Otherwise go F yourself.

He probably mentioned you because you live in Florida and are no fan of DeSantis.

You're a jewel. Anyone who ever attacks you will have to deal with the rest of us :-)

PS - I've never known Redial to be a jerk. Seems like a decent person who's as disgusted with Republicans as much as we are.

The ships should be recycled in the name of environmentalism before they can dump their poop tanks offshore again.

I just thought knowing how you hate the cruise industry in general, you might have a comment on this.

The cruise industry that DeSantis is worried about isn't the cream of the crop. These are (to me) garbage cruises. Like the ones that go out into international waters to gamble, full open bar, and open bar cruises to the Bahamas that are a constant party. The Cruise lines that are actually running Tourism cruises, even Disney's cruises are still trying to sort out their own rules and what they can do to keep people safe.

If Florida opened for cruises, it would make the United States the only country to resume cruising. So far there are only plans to resume some limited cruises in July in the UK, for instance, Canada's out until 2022. And here's the thing: All the cruise lines will require vaccine passports. Even the Cruise lines that are planning/hoping to start June/July around Florida (not from Florida, but from islands in the Caribbean) are requiring proof of vaccination.

DeSantis has already banned vaccine passports in Florida. So how's that going to work? Does DeSantis think he'll override the Cruise Industry's own requirements? So he can force the Cruise line industry to spread COVID-19?

DeSantis is painfully stupid and evil.

While I think the cruise lines should be allowed to start operating again, I agree with them having COVID passport type entrance requirements, at least for the next year so everyone can get vaccinated. Cruise ships are petri dishes.

But eventually, we are going to get to the point that Covid is going to be just like the flu. Just get a vaccine for it..

#11 - that's what we're all hoping for I think, Boaz. That like other pandemics, this one will mutate to less and less virulent forms, and become a seasonal "flu" instead of what it is right now. So far these variants aren't going that way, though. Fingers crossed.

These ----- can polluter boats can cruise all they want but I can tell you they will have a hard time finding a place to land their passengers to go shopping down here in Latin America. For instance we here in Chile are under a full quarantine yet again and nobody is coming in or out. I have been following the nightmare that these companies have caused by not letting their crews go home and are basically enslaving their workers and in the commercial end of shipping over 200,000 merchant marines have been enslaved at sea for the length of the pandemic.

That's because cruising is for plebes. Yachting is still active in many countries, you just have to be rich enough to afford the charter and you get a cruise ship to yourself for the most part.

Yeah just like the flu, if the stupid half of the country had been brainwashed by a con man to think the flu was a fake liberal hoax and getting a shot was a sign that you're a liberal gay demon.

PS desantis banned covid passports. Your party is going to keep this disease alive forever. But you'll keep voting for them like a chump.

Only an abject fool would get on a Cruise Ship currently without first being fully vaccinated. DeSantis clearly wants to win the Bolsonaro Award for biggest fool.
