"Open everything up, to heck with it!" isn't a solid strategy for protecting seniors?

It’s better than Renewal though, right?

What are the chances FL is one of the states that screws up again?  Broward County better have it together this time.  We have been "successfully" doing absentee ballots now for a while, so the Covid should not be that big of a deal.  There has been plenty of notice of an election happening, so people should have plenty of time to vote early.

Let it be Pennsylvania, NC, and Michigan in the news next Wednesday.   We don't need another FL supervisor of elections to be trending.

Chances are pretty high, but it won't be with "mail in" ballots...it will be with election day problems like it is every other time.

I saw our local news on while I was picking up a food order a couple days ago and I'm pretty sure it said that here in central Florida the 18-34 demographic in the 2016 election had 130K ish voters who submitted a ballot.  So far this time around it's pushing 500K.

I had great memories of that film and made the mistake of watching it again recently. My god what a disaster. But I still love the sheer genius of the scene where they finally get everyones attention to warn them all - and the people all just turn and continue. Worth all the horrible acting and cheesy special effects.

I'm surprised this has never been redone.

Outperformed Hillary almost everywhere, except Miami-Dade which was a massive difference raw numbers wise.

Rick Scott was just in msnbc, Biden got killed on the Hispanic vote.  That despasito schtick killed him.

Hispanic and Cuban voters going for Trump really hurt Biden in Florida.

Open Primaries :bye:  :kicksrock: 

I voted against this.  I figured everyone would team up and vote against the leading candidate, just like they vote to veto trades involving the top teams in fantasy.

I've never seen that in any of the states I've ever lived in that provide it.  It's possible.  I just don't think it's probable.  And as a NPA, I'd like to take part in a primary if someone catches my eye.

Unbelievable

Continuing to punt this down to the individual business owners to refuse service.  Coward.

Not surprising at all. Assume no responsibility is the game plan. I hope this guy loses bad in the next election.

Are the Republicans going to fight and slime their way around the new Minimum Wage referrendum? 

No doubt. I’m waiting to see what clever sidestep the Legislature comes up with.

In Miami-Dade county, for non-partisan county mayor position, the people voted for the liberal candidate, Daniella Levine Cava, over her conservative anti-socialism opponent by a wide margin. She, along with many Republican mayors in the county are pushing back against DeSantis. But thus far, they've been unable to reach him.

>> For her debut COVID press conference, Levine Cava tapped city mayors, and academic and business organizations to be on the Zoom call as well. One theme was criticism of Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose statewide order from late September forced Miami-Dade to reopen bars and nightclubs and prevents local governments from collecting fines tied to emergency COVID orders.

“It’s great to be united here in Miami-Dade County,” said Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernández. “Hopefully our state government, our governor, will understand we believe in science. That science is the best way to keep our businesses open.”

Like DeSantis, Hernández is a Republican. So is Francis Suarez, the mayor of Miami, who said Tuesday he’s been unable to get DeSantis on the phone to talk about allowing cities and counties to get tougher on mask mandates. “We don’t have all the tools in our tool box,” Suarez said. “I’m going to continue to reach out to Governor DeSantis and impress upon him the need for us to have that local control.”

The Sept. 25 DeSantis order on fines has all but stopped citations for Miami-Dade’s countywide mask mandate, though Miami Beach announced this week it would resume issuing tickets even if fine collections are on hold.

“Now is definitely not the time to let up,” Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said.

A week into her tenure as leader of Florida’s largest local government and the one managing the state’s most severe COVID hot spot, Levine Cava said she’s also been unable to connect with DeSantis. The governor’s office did not respond to a request for comment on when DeSantis planned to connect with Levine Cava, a Democrat.

“I am looking forward to speaking to the governor,” Levine Cava said. “I look forward to his call.”<<
