  1. I also just watched a video DeSantis made in Panama City and the monoclonal antibody treatments he is opening and making available. They look great if someone gets COVID, but they can also be vaccinated and receive it if necessary. I don’t have the video linked but he did state yet again his positions on masks, He made a few statement about Florida Law and Biden stepping in was not lawful, I’m certainly no expect but enjoy learning so I did a little research on the law. This link covers vaccine, not masks. I would have no problem with a vaccine mandate personally. I believe protecting the public health is a duty. It looks like it could come from the state but the legislature may have to have a hand in it, it could come from the Federal level or from Congress. I also wish people would just do the right thing. The vaccine hesitant and resistant have really puzzled me as well as people’s impulse to not wear a mask. I watched other people commented about DeSantis on a blog, they still think he’s the greatest. I tried to talk to some but they are a brick wall about mandates and vaccines. If we had been like this we’d still have polio and smallbox and never won WWII. Right now I’m taking it a day at the time. https://crsreports.congress.gov/product/pdf/R/R46745 I believe he could mandate the vaccine and masks.

  2. I read his comments to CBS. He doesn’t understand that even if people get the vaccines and have immunity to a point, they can still get the virus if they come in contact with it again. It is still in the nasal passages and can be spread. Some one really needs to explain that to him.
    I’ve come up against this and some people simply do not understand the differences.

    He made a mistake with his executive order and should rescind it, hopefully on his own, without the courts.

    Does anyone actually have his ear– that can talk to him directly and not put him on the defense?

  3. 1,222 likely Florida voters over the age of 45

    Did Florida change its voting rules to only allow those over 45 to vote?

  4. Deathsantis is going to turn Florida blue. He’s made the Republican Party look like a bunch of homicidal psychopaths. If the local Republican elected officials don’t start standing up against his killing spree they don’t deserve their positions either.
