#COVID-19 : Professional contact team sports returns in Florida- timing could not be worse

For anyone not predisposed to believe Governor DeSantis & President Trump’s spin on Coronavirus, it has been obvious since the first week of June that Florida was entering very dangerous territory.

#COVID-19 – The state of denial, spin & idiocy from Florida’s MAGA activists

As I have previously stated, in my twenty five or so years of activism and involvement in politics, I have never been as angry or frustrated by anything as I have been by the reaction of those supporting President Trump regarding COVID-19.

#FloridaCovidEpicenter: Conservatives show once again they do not understand economics

As readers of this site and followers my Twitter feed know, I have been harping obsessively on rising COVID-19 numbers in the state since just after Memorial Day.

Trump and DeSantis have been irresponsible – that does not mean Democrats and cable news have been white knights. We must all be accountable and do better to save ourselves.

President Donald Trump and his administration deserve blame for taking their eyes off the ball and leaving Americans vulnerable to the worst pandemic since 1918. Governor Ron DeSantis similarly has been slow and excessively ideological in his approach to the crisis. But does that means Democrats have been benevolent actors championing public safety? Does that […]
