Florida Surgeon General Sued by Cruise Line Over Vax ‘Passport’ Law

Oh boy…

Published

As it stands today, about 30% of Americans have stated that they are unwilling to receive a vaccine against COVID-19.  Some are concerned that the inoculations were developed too quickly, while others simply don’t trust the government enough to have them sticking anything in their arms.

Those 30% have garnered the attention of some Republican lawmakers as well, as they see it as a good way to take a stand against government overreach, and in a very public way.  (We all understand that publicity is a big part of national-level politics).

So, when Florida passed a law that would ban private businesses from requiring a proof of vaccination to enter, several companies were publicly unhappy about it.

On Tuesday, the company sued Scott Rivkees, the surgeon general of Florida, over the state’s ban against businesses asking for proof of vaccination against the coronavirus, per the Wall Street Journal. Norwegian plans on requiring vaccination for all passengers and crew, including kids, when it starts up its cruises to the Caribbean on Aug. 15, and the suit notes Rivkees is the state official in charge of enforcing the ban. The cruise line calls its complaint a “last resort” against the “misguided intrusion” of a state law that bars the use of vaccine passports in Florida, per CNN. A rep for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office says the cruise line’s move would unfairly single out those who can’t get vaccinated for health reasons, can’t yet get their jabs (ie, kids), or won’t get vaccinated for religious or conscience-based reasons.

Other cruise companies, like Royal Caribbean, are allowing unvaccinated guests on board, but those travelers must purchase enhance trip insurance to board.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

Published

on

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

Published

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
