The length to which the politicians will go to just to prove their creds with the Trump Cult is simply amazing. These people don't believe the things they claim, they just want to please the Cult. It's sick.

I wonder if they'll do away with car seat requirements next. And then there's those pesky seat belt laws. Why stop there, lets do away with speed limits and the minimum drinking age. After all, each one of these laws are an infringement of an individual's freedom to do what they damn well please.

This was just a matter of time coming for the MAGAt death cult.

When you base your life decisions off of a very poorly translated misogynistic bronze age fairy tale this is what happens.

These people are why aliens won't land here.

Well, considering the reality of the situation, covid in FL has waned significantly without any statewide mandates. It's funny to watch Liberals ignore science and math when they don't like it but it's also sad to see Liberals hurting our country because of their penchant to ignore what doesn't fit their narrative.

And the saddest part is I'm just reporting what has happened in the real world and yet most of you will come on here and do the typical Liberal "if I don't like it I'll resort to namecalling" thing instead of accepting it. It doesn't mean you are wrong in everything. It just means that a solution was found that you didn't create. Don't take it as a personal attack and feel you have to hide in a safe space. Dems get plenty of wins. So do Reps. And both sides get plenty of head-scratching losses.

But the point that is completely undeniable is that FL covid numbers dropped because the people made it drop, not the government. And that's all the Reps want, for people to be free to handle problems on their own without the government taking away their freedoms. Whether that is good or bad, that's up to each person. But to argue the entire situation like your opinions are the only ones that matter and we will never get through something bad without doing exactly what the Liberals (or any party) wants has just been proven 100% wrong. It doesn't mean you can't keep trying. It doesn't mean

"I wonder if they'll do away with car seat requirements next. And then there's those pesky seat belt laws. Why stop there, lets do away with speed limits and the minimum drinking age. After all, each one of these laws are an infringement of an individual's freedom to do what they damn well please."

Only Liberals these days would equate requiring people to present cards and show they are wearing a symbol like a mask to do anything, to a seatbelt mandate that doesn't actually remove protected freedoms that all men and women should get. Seatbelts aren't an inherent right of being a person, being able to travel to wherever you want to get food, water, and shelter is, within reason. Sure there are general exceptions like places people shouldn't be to maintain national security and such like that, but seatbelts don't stop anyone from going to the store to get life needs...mandating that people can't go to the store without doing what the government says do stop people.

Again, whether or not those freedoms are important to keep from the government is up to each party. But you HAVE to at least accept that a big portion of the country does feel that way and that the more power you want to give the government to address these needs based on a less than 1% chance of dying from something can easily be a concern to a lot of people. It's worth debating. It's worth both sides coming together to discuss and find ways forward. But neither side is doing that. And since it is the Liberals in this case that are the ones trying to attack freedoms, they are the ones who need to set the precedent for compromise. But again, don't let that statement make you run to a safe space. There are things Reps do that require them to be the bigger person and they aren't. The biggest point here is that just because others have a problem with something that you don't, doesn't mean you can oppress them. It is no different than Reps not caring about gender assignment or Reps not caring about women's bodies.

#12 Shush, Covid is killing the right people now. Humans don't have a predator species to improve the health of the herd. Viruses with vaccines fill that role.

"...seatbelts don't stop anyone from going to the store to get life needs..."

Neither does wearing a mask.

So is it safe to say that the definition of "freedom" in America is now "I do what I want, you do what I want, and I have zero responsibility to society"?

Because I'm old enough to remember when that was the definition of "-------."

Individual decisions with societal consequences - the freedoms espoused by personal choice cannot override the safety concerns and public protection rights of everyone else.

That's what the Supreme Court ruled in 1905.

For something to wane, it must first wax.

Florida's third peak was higher than their second peak, which was higher than their first peak. www.worldometers.info

Trumptards just noticed that we already have vaccine mandates and they realized how stupid they must look fighting against something that has been acceptable for most Americans since 1850.

So now they have to fight against ALL vaccines being mandated. After all it is the logical conclusion to the insanity of trumpism.

It would be fun to watch the qtards paint themselves into this corner if not for the deadly results of their continued deep dive into the insanity of trumpism.

Actually California currently has the LOWEST, of the 50 states, 7-day average of COVID cases and deaths per 100K in population, 42.2 and 0.2 respectively. The national average is 200.8 and 2.8 respectively.

Man oh Manny. This train wreck of a person must REALLY hate children once they are born. Most of the diseases for which children are now vaccinated are given because of the dramatic damage those illnesses can cause children to suffer, and suffer through for much of their adult lives too. I'll bet Diaz is that head-spinning combo of anti-abortion, pro-gun and anti-vax. Does he want people to have the chance to be born so as to die an early, unnatural death?

The federal government should step in and remove these people from local government.

They're clearly a threat to the safety and general welfare of Americans everywhere.
