Publix no longer requires people to wear masks in their stores

Sooo... Publix no longer requires people to wear masks in their stores, at least in my part of FL

Signs on the doors say masks required but yesterday as my wife was checking out w/groceries at self-checkout, three men were in the same area WITHOUT masks

WTG, Publix

Employees have been told they cannot confront customers with masks, unless another customer says something and then they can get a manager

Remember the south FL "Shadow Candidate" for Congress? Raid conducted at home of fmr Repub st. sen.


Police cars revolving lightBreaking: search warrant raid right now at home of resigned #Florida Sen. Frank Artiles re shill candidate he planted, Alex Rodriguez.
re: scheme to dupe voters/manipulate a Nov 2020 FL senate election.
Much to come...

Background https://bit.ly/386eacT


Ex-Sen. Frank Artiles’ home raided in shill candidate investigation
search warrant was executed Wednesday morning at the home of former Florida Sen. Frank Artiles as part of the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office’s investigation into whether he illegally funded a planted candidate in the November election.

Sources say the warrant involves the search of his electronics, including his cell phone and computer, and a safe in the Palmetto Bay house might also be included.

Investigators are looking for evidence of Artiles’ possible communication with Alex Rodriguez, a shill candidate in the District 37 Florida Senate race, and whether there is evidence Artiles illegally funded a sham candidacy.


Prosecutors have been following the money and communications between Artiles and Alex Rodriguez. Artiles resigned his state Senate seat in 2017 after using a racial slur among colleagues and amid reports that a former Hooters calendar girl and a Playboy model with no political experience were hired as “consultants.”

Evidence suggests several state Senate candidates were plants funded by dark money
Why would candidates for Florida Senate seats do no campaigning, no fundraising, have no issue platforms, nor make any effort to get votes?

Local 10 News has found evidence to suggest three such candidates in three Florida Senate district races, two of them in Miami Dade County, were shill candidates whose presence in the races were meant to syphon votes from Democratic candidates.

Comparisons of the no-party candidates' public campaign records show similarities and connections that suggest they are all linked by funding from the same dark money donors, and part of an elaborate scheme to upset voting patterns.

In one of those races, District 37, a recount is underway because the spread between the Democratic and Republican candidates is only 31 votes. The third party candidate received more than 6300 votes.

That third party candidate is Alexis Rodriguez, who has the same last name as the Democratic incumbent senator Jose Javier Rodriguez. The Republican challenger is Ileana Garcia.

A year ago this week...

A year ago this week brought many unknowns to light. How long would I be working from home? How long would theme parks (and much of America) be closed? What food and supply shortages would we see? Would we need masks? What kind? Where would we get them? Etc.

We also were “led” by an administration that, vainly, fought hard to play down the spreading contagion, taking it as affront to them personally (even though it was affecting the entire world). 500,000 died in less than a year, even with the worst projections (given basic remediation methods in place nationwide) of maybe 200,000 dead

That led to even further unknowns and a massive amount of backlash from the willfully ignorant that worshiped the previous administration

Today, I’m still largely working from home but life is starting to get back to normal for many. While there are no widespread food shortages, there are still millions unemployed or underemployed and some restrictions are still in place.

But tens of millions are fully vaccinated and a third vaccine is available and there is light ahead, washing away the darkness and fear-mongering and hatred.

We shall prevail!
