    Back when Florida Governor Ron DeSATAN was a congressman, he voted AGAINST relief for Superstorm Sandy that had ravaged those same Northeastern states to which he now wants to send lawful asylum applicants from Texas (not even his state).

    How pathetic that now Governor DeSATAN has to go begging for more of that SOCIALIST WELFARE he always campaigns against, but which Florida always goes begging for when the predictable natural consequences of their rabid climate science denial come back to bite their low-lying coastal state. (His predecessor, Rick Scott, now Florida senator, banned any reference to climate change and fired state employees who violated his anti-science mandates.)

    Ronald Reagan used racist stereotypes to rail against him imaginary “welfare queens,” but it turns out that the real ones are Republicans who demand brutal capitalism for the general public but generous corporate socialism for themselves.

    During covid many refused to wear masks or get the shots. My body, my choice. And yet the same group want to control women’s bodies.

    DeSantis will, of course, gratefully accept everything he can get, because socialism (which is exactly the same as communism. and fascism) doesn’t matter in the slightest when you are the one needing help.

    Oh, and one of the things you will NOT hear from the Republican Party of Trump is “OMG, where will we get the money??”

    At least not for two or three weeks.

    Just wait until Desantis starts complaining that whatever the Federal government did, it wasn’t enough. He’ll turn this into a political moment. He’ll try to make his star rise, and damage the Democrats at the same time. He’s trash.

    The brightest Red states are also the one’s that are net receiver’s of Federal Gov. assistance. In a word, they are leeches on our overall economy. Too bad the Civil War didn’t end in a draw.

    It appears, some of those who stayed, may not have had the means to flee.

    Why didn’t desantis (the new Jabba the Hutt) offer transport to these people?

    ‘’We have issued an evacuate order, if you have no means of transport, we will help.’’

    ‘’We will find shelter, for those with nowhere to go.’’

    That is what a real leader would have done, not Bozo desantis. Nope. Nein. 番号.

    Bozo desantis had $$$ to charter a plane to the Vineyard. Bastardo.

    This is a truly great cartoon! Florida is a horrible microcosm of America. St. Pete and Orlando are liberal- even “progressive”. The mayors are well aware of climate change. Openly gay and mixed “race” couples are not rare. Meanwhile, The Northwest has inflicted Matt Gaetz on the nation. “DeSatan” won by a very thin margin. Val Demings and Charlie Crist must win if Florida is to avoid authoritarian idiocy. Never forget that it was Florida that made George W the first great disaster of the 21st Century!

    The Republican party has been the party of corporate welfare for decades now. Sooner or later, people MIGHT figure out that voting for them is hurting their own interests. Maybe.

     The “Horrors” of Socialism

    You take your kid to school at age 5, spend 20 minutes filling out forms, and get 13 years of education. Socialism.

    Your house catches fire, and the fire department comes and puts it out. Socialism.

    Someone breaks into your home, and the cops are only a phone call away. Socialism.

    They put the perps on trial, and you MIGHT have to testify, but that’s it. Socialism.

    The last hostile foreign boot left American soil in 1814. Socialism.

    Use your public library’s materials and services. Socialism.

    Turn on your tap and get fresh, clean water. Socialism.

    Breathe pollution-free air. Socialism.

    You’ve got a good idea what the weather will be like next weekend. Socialism.

    Planes don’t crash into each other in mid-air. Socialism.

    Every day* an agent of the federal government swings by your place on the off chance you want to send a birthday card to Grandma, and 2 days later and 2000 miles away, she’s reading it for ⅒ the price of the card itself. Socialism.

    You can drive anywhere in America on public roadways.† Socialism.

    You get seriously ill or injured, and good luck! Capitalism.

    ––––––

    *slight exaggeration; it’s really only 6 days out of 7.

    †exception: toll roads. Go ahead, tell us how much you love THOSE!

    There’s a big fracking difference between Marxist/socialist dominance and a governmental helping hand. You lefties don’t have any understanding of Marxism in this regard.
