    Florida governor has no concern at all for the safety, and health of Florida residents. It is a matter of life or dead, not $

    What a load of bullshiggity! Florida was way more successful than Gavin Newsom will ever be! Nobody was fleeing from New York to California! Florida is the New York winter vacation home state! California’s death tolls and infection rate tells so many truths. Florida’s very lackluster approach is seemingly successful, while California’s lack of infection is perplexing. Maybe the Chinese aren’t welcome in California?...kidding! Maybe California’s consistent climate has something to do with it? Definitely not Newsom’s lockdowns. I’ve been to Florida many times and gotta tell ya, a 50mph zone is 25mph with the aged retired population down there! California should compare numbers honestly with Florida. I think you would really be surprised.

    This is why all the most conservative states are the poorest in the country. Because they're also the worst in education. They breed ignorance before functioning members of society

    They abused their privileges you fool. That’s why he’s holding ground. That’s how it should be done. It’s not a wishy washy leadership. It might help you to take notes,
