DeSantis’s Florida Approves Climate-Denial Videos in Schools
Florida’s Department of Education has approved classroom use of videos that spout climate disinformation and distort climate science
Climate activists are like Nazis.

Wind and solar power pollute the Earth and make life miserable.

Recent global and local heat records reflect natural temperature cycles.

These are some of the themes of children’s videos produced by an influential conservative advocacy group.(...)

Sadly, that sounds like my 24 year old nephew.

Miami beach can party all night after booze ban halted


CNN —

The party looks set to go on well into the night in Miami’s South Beach, for now at least, after ban on alcohol sales after 2 a.m. was temporarily halted.

Earlier this week a judge ruled that last call for booze in parts of South Beach can be shifted from 5 a.m. to 2 a.m. following several attempts by Miami Beach officials to address complaints about nightclubs from city residents.

Now a Miami-Dade County judge has granted a temporary halt to the planned ban, allowing Miami Beach nightclubs to serve alcohol until 5 a.m. through the spring break season, according to a representative for Story nightclub.

The business filed a motion Wednesday to withhold enforcement of the city ordinance until after March 27 – the peak of spring break tourism – according to Miami Dade County Court documents.










Do you know what is the basis for challenging the ordinance? I mean most places have regulations limiting the sale of booze. I don't think "I want to make more money" is a valid argument.

For those that aren't going to fall for dramatic clickbait

You'd miss out on all the bigotry good stuff...
“But the big part I would suggest to you, based upon what it’s saying here, is the removal of constraint,” he continued. “So our society provided the constraint. And so, which is the responsibility of a society to constrain people from doing evil? Well, you remove the constraints, and then evil occurs.”

In the same discussion, Peri called homosexuality “shameful,” linking it to disease.

“There are a lot of unhealthy effects of a homosexual lifestyle,” said Peri. “There are diseases, but it goes beyond that.”

Peri has also said that LGBTQ people “don’t have a stake in the future” because many do not have children, and he called gay people “deviant.”

In one discussion, he linked homosexuality to the fall of the Roman Empire – a fringe historical belief occasionally pushed by some Christian activists.

“Homosexuality was praised,” Peri said. “LGBTQ today is being emphasized everywhere, even on children’s shows. And so ultimately the Romans had become weak.”

Peri’s discussions, which focused on seeing the modern world through a Biblical viewpoint, often touched on social topics. In other discussions uploaded on YouTube, Peri said that “not very long ago being a mother was the pinnacle of being a woman,” and he compared abortion to genocides like the Holocaust.

“It has boggled my mind that you have not seen a massive backlash from the Black population for what is effectively a genocide. And if you look to the right, you can see that in world history, there have been great killers. The Holocaust, 11 million were killed. Six million Jews,” said Peri, pointing to a chart comparing abortion to genocide.

MAGA Management material.

"But strong emotions are not the best guides for policy making—and that's especially true in situations where the stakes are quite literally life and death. As Reason's CJ Ciaramella noted in 2020, Florida has had more exonerations of death row inmates than any other state in the country: roughly one for every three executions carried out. That ought to inspire more humility, not aggressiveness, in deciding when the state should be allowed to kill.

Perhaps DeSantis has a more rational argument for changing Florida's death penalty laws to make it easier for the state to kill convicted criminals, but the case he outlined on Monday seems more based on vengeance than on justice."
