FL Gov. Ron Desantis wants his state to be a super-spreader:
[FL Gov. Ron DeSantis] lifted state restrictions for restaurants and many other businesses on Friday as the state moved into the next reopening phase. Mr. DeSantis, a Republican and avid supporter of President Trump who spoke at the president’s rally in Jacksonville on Thursday, signed the order, allowing restaurants and many other businesses as soon as Friday afternoon to operate at full capacity as part of Phase 3 of his administration’s reopening plan. “We’re not closing anything going forward,” the governor said at a midday news conference in St. Petersburg.
Mr. DeSantis refused to mandate mask usage in the state, insisting that such a decision should be left up to local governments. Yet his administration has increasingly stepped in to prevent counties from imposing more stringent virus restrictions. Many of Florida’s largest counties are run by Democrats….
Under the state’s reopening plan, Phase 3 allows for bars and nightclubs to operate at full capacity “with limited social distancing protocols.” It was unclear immediately how the order would affect Miami-Dade County, the county hardest-hit by the virus, which has kept bars and nightclubs closed since March.
Seriously, how can the rest of the South compete with that kind of sun-baked crazy? But he wasn’t done!
- participating in protests that result in property damage or blocked roads a felony
- donating money to protesters a potential violation of racketeering laws
- “protections to people who drive cars into crowds of protesters, even if someone is injured or killed.”
The crazee state contest has many challengers, but Floriduh remains in the lead!
