Pence said that DeSantis’ handling of Disney is the same method that Newsom used dealing with abortion pills, recently. “I’m a limited government conservative, and I believe in private property, free enterprise.

  1. Mike Pence is irrelevant and obsolete. He scored poorly on the Republican survey for potential 2024 presidential candidates. Why would anyone care about what he has to say?

  2. But NOOOOOOO. We cannot put the brutal police station on the southside on existing land that the City owns at Jack McClean park because that would be racist. The City should buy the Northwood mall property for an exorbitant amount, make the local grifting parties happy and bow down to TCAC and fellow travelers of Taylor Biro types.


  3. As soon as I heard that Florida State was going to start their 2024 Season off by playing their first game in Dublin, Ireland, I thought they took a Page out of Jacksonville Jag’s Playbook. The Jag’s have a contract to play one game a Year over Seas and they get to choose a Team to go with them.

  4. In WCTV’s reporting of the shoot out at Jack Mclean Park the word “battle” was used to describe the extreem numbers of shots fired by the young jeezeys shooting at each other from 2 seperate cars. Normal expectations for The Southside neighborhoods, areas around the fairgrounds, and around Rickards High School. Same stuff different day in what is likely the murder capitol within Tallahassee.
    So now comes the English Family and the clear cutting begins right by Rickards HS and extends all the way east to Southwood. Are there any plans to keep the young jeezeys out of the western side of the “just like Southwood” planned giant community?
    Most likely white liberals will be flocking to buy into the planned community unaware they will be living just spitting distance from “young jeezey land”.
    Perhaps the English family plans to purchase Trumps unused southern border wall materials abandoned by the Biden Administration and will erect a Giant Wall to keep the young jeezeys out of the entire western side of their “just like Southwood” planned community. Good luck with that.
