Political signage trends in FL counties?--seems like reThugs had money,

money for many, many signs, some so big and obnoxious, while Dems signage just wasn't there (at least in Sarasota). Theory--developer donor money make this sign saturation possible. Meanwhile, less well financed Dem candidates can't gain the same name recognition here.

The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American, by Seidel, 2019.

While MAGA nutters are ranting about US being a Christian nation (Boebert, et al.) this book tells the truth about our country's actual founding: before the Declaration of Independence made US a separate country, puritans and pilgrim British colonies on the American continent established Christian governments.

"The Puritans imposed the death penalty for worshiping other gods, blasphemy, homosexuality, and adultery. It is out of this society and this mindset that the terrible idea of a Christian nation founded on Christian principled lodged itself in the American psyche. And it is this intolerant legacy that must be abandoned That is what a Christian government looks like: exclusive, exclusionary, divisive, hateful, severe, and lethal...The insufferable Puritan theocracy declined after King Charles II revoked the colonial charter and assed the Toleration Act of 1689.
"All of this happened more than 100 years before the American Revolution and the drafting of the US Constitution. When the framers, like James Madison, surveyed history, they eschewed theocracy and intolerance, condemning the 'torrents of blood' spilled in the name of religion."

DUer Yellerpup in 2008 wrote "Refutations of 'Christian Nation' in quotes from Founding Fathers." Good to keep handy when the historically illiterate/shameless manipulators peddle the christian nationalist baloney about America. British colonies on this continent were examples of why the founders strongly supported separation of church and state.

Anywho, this book is a thorough exam by constitutional attorney Andrew L. Seidel at the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Highly recommend.

Traitor M. Flynn preaching against "woke," attacking public schools

South west Florida has unfortunately got a new resident--criminal M. Flynn. And he's preaching Christian nationalism while helping dismantle public education, because every retiree needs a hobby.

(Is Florida cursed? Are the spirits of indigenous people spreading an infection of insanity here, like Europeans spread smallpox?)

Today I turned in 4 vote-by-mail ballots at Supervisor of Elections HQ drop box, Sarasota, and

a person overseeing the drop box asked if my ballots were from family members who reside with me. Being the brat that I am, I answered, "No, I got these from some random people on the street." She pointed to a sign that had the FL law about how many ballots you're allowed to drop off, blah, blah, reThug BS. Again, being a brat, I said, "yeah, I know. Arrest me, DeSantis."

A woman behind me laughed. The drop box person smiled and said, have a nice day. So, yeah, I felt kinda creepy, but kinda good, too.
Dems all the way!

They want to spread Moms for Liberty/Proud Boy control throughout US. A local dem created this awesome video in response. Please watch what they've done in Sarasota, and beware.
