A week after major insurance companies started pulling out of Florida costal communities, and that Florida was no longer a major destination for new home buyers, DeathSentence signed a bill that included removing climate change as considerations for construction/infrastructure.
At this point the Florida GOP are just becoming suicidal.

In other Death Cult news, the North Carolina Senate passed, among other detrimental measures, a bill banning anyone from wearing a face mask in public — even for health reasons.
The vote obviously followed party lines and all amendments proposed by Democrats to grant exceptions for health concerns were shot down without explanation.

For additional context, this bill would repeal health exceptions made to an existing ban on wearing masks in public - which was originally enacted in 1953 to disrupt the ability of the Ku Klux Klan to operate. Any person wearing a mask while “committing a crime” (AP’s description) would face greatly enhanced penalties.
Republicans pushing the repeal say these measures are necessary to crack down on the pro-Palestine protests on college campuses and repeating the common talking point about “it lets people commit crime.” They insist that it won’t be used against people who mask for health reasons because cops and prosecutors will have discretion on who to charge under the law. But I’m sure everyone here knows how that tends to play out.

Huh, the Supreme Court defended the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in a 7 to 2 ruling. Clarence Thomas of all people wrote the majority opinion.

If Thomas made a good call it’s because it affected him personally, or was the result of spite. Some financial institution affected probably upcharged him in the past.

The issue is that the ban is so broad it also makes illegal for people to wear masks for medical reasons (such as a weakened immune system) and you can’t trust the cops not to abuse that to detain people.
As for Nazis, the article specifically mentions:
A third Wake County Democrat, Sen. Jay Chaudhuri, proposed amending the bill to ban hate groups — he specifically mentioned the Ku Klux Klan and Proud Boys — from being allowed to wear masks in public, which the law currently allows them to petition for. His amendment also would’ve required state law enforcement officials do more to track hate groups. Like the other amendments, Republican lawmakers shot it down with no debate or explanation.

@neutralgrey or is a bitter that works best with sweets. ie: sorbos in coffee = (especially the chocolate and strawberry)
Best part is how when a liquid is hot it drags some of that flavour along with it, so you don’t need sugar sugar in your coffee with these straws! 😋
Also works with real shakes, the small ice particles break off bits of the “wall” so that makes the twizzlers and lime great for handmade shakes.
The subsidies that make plastic straws so cheap should be taken away and shoved into these instead!
Surprising that California didn’t push for something like that during the straw ban.
@Ereiam oh, you absolutely know the police would cause a blm march or three.
Time to break out the signs again!

Can’t have a proper terrorists good guys with guns if you don’t properly reward those that do “the right thing” and have them as examples of what is expected to be done, after all.
Unsurprisingly, worshipping the “cult of action for action’s sake”, AKA short circuiting logic and reasoning to justify atrocities is one of the main characteristics of fascism. Being able to go the extra step and actively reward brownshirts is a bonus.

This is a few days old, but I took a look back and didn’t find it in this thread yet so I’ll share.
Former Trump White House aide Johnny McEntee posted a video to Tiktok in which he claims that for his own amusement, he keeps a stash of “Hollywood money” to give to homeless people so that they get arrested when they try to spend it. He boasted “I’m actually like helping clean up the community.”
I looked this up, and if I’m reading this correctly, knowingly possessing, using, or making counterfeit currency with the intent to defraud somebody is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison, plus additional state-level penalties where applicable.

Dustcan brought it up a few days ago (and Zincy pointed out the felonious nature of such actions).
Speaking of older news, the guy behind the attempted murder of the Slovakian Prime Minister was apparently a Russian operative.
Good job, Putin: you might’ve just managed to drive yet another former Warsaw Pact ally further away from your sphere of influence with that stunt.

I can’t seem to find the original link, but there’s an article in English on the Bulgarian news portal Fakti, so I definitely didn’t dream it.
Then again, I have no idea of its accuracy (it could be anti-Russian counter-intel, for all I know), since the Slovakian authorities rather describe the suspect as a “lone wolf” who allegedly disagreed with Robert Fico’s policies.

Ironic for a country that decriminalized homosexuality 100 years ago to the year, at a time when it was still considered a mental illness itself at best and a criminal offence at worst.
