  1. “Intersectionality is an analytical framework for understanding how aspects of a person’s social and political identities combine to create different modes of discrimination and privilege.”

    …ummmm… can someone tell me which roads have this?

    … asking for a friend… who isn’t stoned…

  2. Inyra,

    Let it go, Let It Go, LET IT GO… Governor DeSantis Best Governor in America! Meanwhile Biden’s home is being raided by the FBI for compromising the Safety and Security of the citizens of the United States and other countries around the world.

  3. Road projects…watch out, roads have “intersectionality.”

    Oh, tbe hypocrisy of DeSantis saying, “I think they need to ensure that there’s not intellectual discrimination going on when it comes to what people are able to view.” That only goes for what Lil Ron thinks people should see to indoctrinate them to his way of thinking.

  4. @ Pat A = On my Campaign Platform, I said (and believe) that the County needs to take all the Money being wasted on the Programs towards Crime Prevention and put it into building a new Prison and expanding the size of the Jail. We need to get tougher on the Criminals and keep them locked up longer. They need to know that enough is enough.

  5. Wow, yesterday’s Leon County Booking report was six pages long-great job local law enforcement officers. Today, Gadsden County has an all-day, packed docket with criminal felony trials.

    I wrote the Leon Sheriff, Police Chief, Tally Mayor and all the City and County commissioners about rising crime. A Leon County Commissioner wrote back, limited space in the detention center is a part of the reason crime has risen.

    Protecting the community is the number one duty and responsibility of government.To Leon Co/City Commissioners I say, don’t spend another dollar on clown cars, electric busses, advertising on PBS until you have a jail big enough for the community.

    The fact that 13-year-olds are committing felony crimes in our community says it all. Crime pays and has little consequences.
