DeSantis is capable of anything.
Recent Bess Levin 3/1 Vanity Fair article explains it: Democrats Could Literally Be Banned From Elections Thanks To New, Batshit Florida Bill.
“Disenfranchising voters has long been one of the Republican Party’s many pet projects…..one Florida lawmaker has decided it’s high time the GOP drops the charade and just…..bans the Democratic Party from elections.”
“A new proposed bill…..titled SB 1248, calls for the State Division of Elections to cancel the ‘filings’ of a political party…..if that party’s platform had previously advocated for slavery, or involuntary servitude.”
“Although not explicitly listed, the Democratic Party, which were popular in the South during Reconstruction, would fit the description.”
Recall Lincoln was a Republican. The Republican Party was considered a northern one. The Democratic Party southern favored and supported slavery, etc.
Again, my admonition: Beware! Republicans control the Florida governorship and legislature.
Home sales have plummeted to the lowest levels in a year in South Florida. New data shows buyers and sellers growing wary of the housing market.
Completed home sales fell 30 percent in the tri-county area covering Broward Palm Beaches and St. Lucie areas.
What about Key West and the lower Keys? Silence re the issue. Something for the Key West Citizen to investigate and report concerning.
Key West and the lower Keys are unique. Things may be different, though I doubt it. Let’s hear what it is!
Spent a couple of delightful hours at the Chart Room last night. Drank diet Pepsi. My companions Fran and Tom Dixon. Their last night in Key West. Return to Buffalo this morning.
Willie Nelson came up in our discussions. They had seen a sign advertising Willie Nelson was in Key West and appearing at the Amphitheater last night. I was surprised. I had heard nothing about it.
Checked the news out on the internet. Willie Nelson and his family appeared last night at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater. Tickets first time around cheap, $69-$150. What they were after the promoters got a hold of them, I do not know. I am also unaware of the crowd size, etc. Nothing in this morning’s Citizen.
I am a long time old time fan of Willie Nelson. We are contemporaries. Nelson is 2 years older than me.
Another example of the Klu Klux Klan influence in Key West 100 years ago. On this day in 1923, United Daughters of the Confederacy representative Mrs. M.E. Bonds of Macon, Georgia, visited the Harris School in hope of establishing a chapter of the Children of the Confederacy there. I am unaware if she was successful.
A basketball record!
On this day in 1962, Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a game against the New York Knicks. An NBA record that still stands.
Busy day ahead. Haircut and pedicure followed by lunch somewhere.
Enjoy your day!
