    This election nonsense by Trump may end up splitting up the Republican Party. I just don’t see how the one third (?) who are principled conservatives can stay in the same party with Trump sycophants who are willing to sign onto the TX Supreme Court case.

    We also saw the alt right types chanting “destroy the GOP” in Washington today because they didn’t keep Trump in power. I think the Q types will also hold the same ill will toward the traditional Republican Party. In fact its quite possible that all the voters who are really in a Trump personality cult will also blame the GOP for his loss. It’s only a matter of time IMO before Trump himself gets around to blaming the GOP.

    There is some discussion of this on Twitter. What do you all think?



     
    MAGA turns Republicans into hateful little children who can't control themselves and have no decorum, with the commensurate intelligence those acts display.
    Yup - when you commit to following a man as your leader who has the emotional standing of a 6 year old, you take on his character flaws to a certain extent. It’s been amazing to watch.
     
    This was the best one:

    Meanwhile, a bill to rename Dulles International Airport for Trump is awaiting action by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. The Virginia airport is named for John Foster Dulles, who served as secretary of state under President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the early days of the Cold War.

    Democrats responded to the airport proposal in May with a two-page bill seeking to name the Miami Federal Correctional Institution for Trump, a snarky poke at his ongoing legal battles.

     
    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana has become the first state to require that the Ten Commandments be displayed in every public school classroom under a bill signed into law by Republican Gov. Jeff Landry on Wednesday.

    The GOP-drafted legislation mandates that a poster-sized display of the Ten Commandments in “large, easily readable font” be required in all public classrooms, from kindergarten to state-funded universities. Although the bill did not receive final approval from Landry, the time for gubernatorial action — to sign or veto the bill — has lapsed.

    Opponents question the law’s constitutionality, warning that lawsuits are likely to follow. Proponents say the purpose of the measure is not solely religious, but that it has historical significance. In the law’s language, the Ten Commandments are described as “foundational documents of our state and national government.”

    The displays, which will be paired with a four-paragraph “context statement” describing how the Ten Commandments “were a prominent part of American public education for almost three centuries,” must be in place in classrooms by the start of 2025.

    The posters would be paid for through donations. State funds will not be used to implement the mandate, based on language in the legislation.

    The law also “authorizes” — but does not require — the display of the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence and the Northwest Ordinance in K-12 public schools.

    Not long after the governor signed the bill into law, civil rights groups and organizations that want to keep religion out of government promised to file a lawsuit challenging it.……

    It's funny the ones who want these things often have broken those commandments sometimes often.
     
    Won’t have to wait long
    ==================


    Louisiana’s Republican Governor Jeff Landry is looking for a legal fight after mandating the Ten Commandments in every classroom in the state.

    “I’m going home to sign a bill that places the Ten Commandments in public classrooms,” he said during a recent GOP fundraiser in Tennessee. “I can’t wait to be sued.”…..

    Great use of taxpayer money - to defend that stupid move. Oh well, at least LA has every other issue for the people already in great shape and they don’t need that money for anything else. 🤦‍♀️

    In better times, I'd expect this to be swiftly struck down - never to see the light of day - all the way to SCOTUS. Today...? :idunno:
     
    Of course, DeSantis blamed skyrocketing insurance costs in FL on inflation. Um, no, that’s a FL problem due to climate changes, Ron.

    its waaaay more than "climate change"

    Florida has a "coastal community with $1,000,000 homes/condos" problem.

    Yes, but isn’t the skyrocketing cost of insuring said condos because of the increased risk of damage due to increased storm activity due to climate change? From what I’ve been reading, people are no longer able to afford their homeowners insurance and so many people are trying to sell that the market is collapsing. And it’s not just the higher end properties. Floridians in mobile home parks are being forced to try to sell, because they can no longer insure them.
