    “… Fascism, political ideology and mass movement that dominated many parts of central, southern, and eastern Europe between 1919 and 1945 and that also had adherents in western Europe, the United States, South Africa, Japan, Latin America, and the Middle East. Europe’s first fascist leader, Benito Mussolini, took the name of his party from the Latin word fasces, which referred to a bundle of elm or birch rods (usually containing an ax) used as a symbol of penal authority in ancient Rome. Although fascist parties and movements differed significantly from one another, they had many characteristics in common, including extreme militaristic nationalism, contempt for electoral democracy and political and cultural liberalism, a belief in natural social hierarchy and the rule of elites, and the desire to create a Volksgemeinschaft (German: “people’s community”), in which individual interests would be subordinated to the good of the nation. At the end of World War II, the major European fascist parties were broken up, and in some countries (such as Italy and West Germany) they were officially banned. Beginning in the late 1940s, however, many fascist-oriented parties and movements were founded in Europe as well as in Latin America and South Africa. Although some European “neofascist” groups attracted large followings, especially in Italy and France, none were as influential as the major fascist parties of the interwar period. …” — britannica .com/topic/fascism

    On the day this month it was 115 in Florida and DeSantis made it illegal to talk about climate change. Lying Republicans are in denial about reality.

    Read an article several months ago that wealthy residents in Miami were buying up higher and drier properties inhabited by lower income folk, pushing them out of the city. Hypocrisy once again.

    II have been keeping garden records for about 40 years. The daffodils I planted on April 17th, 1997 bloomed on May 7th 1998 for the first time. Each year, they have averaged blooming earlier. This year, it was March 23rd. No change in anything except the climate. And the entire rest of the garden is following the same pattern. Those who don’t believe in climate change are either lying because Faux has instructed them not to see it, or they have never planted a seed in their life.

    Florida’s legislature (and the governor who signs stuff into law), to no one’s surprise, has made the situation exponentially worse. In Florida, if you own a condo community, and a hurricane damages 3 of 100 units, it is legal to claim that the entire community needs new roofs. This means a tear-off and rebuild of 97 roofs that do not need it, that insurance premiums pay for.

    It gets worse: since it’s unprofitable for insurance companies to deal with all this disaster relief, Florida has come up with a system where vulture capitalists can buy up policies that legitimate (?) insurers have abandoned. Then they increase the premiums six-fold. People who have claims from Ian, for example, suddenly have claims against a company that doesn’t hold their policy any more. In order to keep the claim active, they have no choice but to pay those outlandish premiums while living in mold-infested housing or hotels or some other ridiculous predicament.

    This is not a concern for the government that is supposed to be looking out for its constituents.

    And people keep voting for people who bring despair to themselves.

    Sad!

    Just because that moronic governor removed the phrase from the documentation doesn’t mean it’s not happening. I don’t remember if it was the budget/constitution; it was such a stupidly useless gesture.
