Tallahassee Police could take weeks to months to identify skeletal remains that were found my a construction crew near Fairview Middle School. The remains were found beneath a paved roadway, so TPD detectives are focused now on learning more about the property’s history, what it was used for and how long ago the road was paved to try to figure out how long the remains may have been there.

    Try doing free speech intelligently because it comes off as hate speech. So either you were absent in your second grade lesson on being respectful or you have issues. Your hate speech does not help you in any way other than to identify you as a wing nut.

  2. Weed, regarding your dtatement “free speech trumps hate speech.” Your hypocrisy shows because earlier this week you asked TR to remove my comment to Bsrb. So you obvuiously are not for free speeech for everyone, just for you and your cronies.
    So go on, call me another babyish name, the fact will remain.

  3. The documentary “What is a Woman?” is being shown for free for 24 hours on twitter. Elon Musk, Daily Wire, and Matt Walsh have posted it on their twitter accounts. It has had over 9 million views already. I’m glad I was able to watch it last night. As Elon said, “Every parent should watch this”.

  4. “leaving the State of Florida in droves.”

    All talk, no actual action. Like actors moving out of the U.S. because of Trump, I’ll believe it when I see it.

  5. “…have a choice to be a bigot and small minded person who is afraid of things they don’t understand.”

    That’s rich. You have a group of people suffering from gender dysphoria that refuse to seek medical attention. Instead, they want the community to accept them as normal and even worse expose young children to their perverted lifestyle.

  6. Duped State Wing Nut & Cannon Pawn

    Your nonsense does not play anymore. Your pink slips are in the mail as free speech trumps hate speech.

  7. Wow… I guess when you’re losing the argument, all that’s left is attack and deflect and attack and deflect and attack and deflect…

    Still think GP (Gender Pretending) isn’t a dangerous and destructive mental disorder? I remember when people who suggested that gay marriage would be a slippery slope were mocked, chided, and attacked… well, look where we are today. God help us.

  8. For all the drag queen haters, I challenge you to Google these terms to learn what the overwhelming majority of true grooming and pedophilia is:
    “cop child sex”
    “priest child sex”
    “doctor child sex”

  9. It seems to me that if the governor were truly prolife, and not just pro-birth, instead of putting millions upon millions into his special police force, flying another state’s migrants, and waging culture wars, he’d put that money into DCF child protection, preventing unwanted children that will become abused children, curing food deserts, and creating strong mental health programs.

  10. Everyone here who repeatedly refuses to use a person’s stated moniker shows how childish, low class and utterly boorish they are. Just saying, Weedeater and LylesaLot.
    But whatever, keep patting yourselves on the back and preaching to your tiny choir.

  11. @Nicholas Weed –

    “People have a choice and if some people wish not to have vulgarity shoved down their throats . . .”

    I swear, it is always projection with you people. Always.

    “much a choice and right as you have a right to do or not to what you do”

    You do have a choice to be a bigot and small minded person who is afraid of things they don’t understand. And I have a right to call you out on it.

    @Edward Lyle – If you were really worried about people intent on molesting children, you’d take a closer look at the catholic church and their methodological process for shuffling problematic priests from one parish to another.

  12. Well… I was prepared to address DeepStatePropagandist… but credit where due… Weed handled it. So… what Weed said… except to add this; don’t follow NASCAR, but better a boomer than a groomer. Move along freak…

  13. Duped State Wing Nut

    I believe you are mistaken as usual. People have a choice and if some people wish not to have vulgarity shoved down their throats because of political ideologists who have lost their way then that is as much a choice and right as you have a right to do or not to what you do. Go blow smoke somewhere else.

  14. TallahasseeReports – not discriminatory lgbtq, but #1 with people who favor discrimination against lgbtq!

    @Boomers – Did you see that Nascar tweeted out something in favor of Pride month? Hurry up and start cancelling them too!

  15. Re: Jobs numbers. I’m old school and don’t understand this “new math”. Someone please explain how 155,269 im April and 159,063 in May shows a gain of 508 jobs. Old school math (simple subtraction) shows a gain of 3,794????

  16. “the head of an LGBT group, members of the LGBT community are leaving the State of Florida in droves.”

    Maybe you al can hook up with all the illegals leaving and split the cost.

  17. ref: “According to the head of an LGBT group, members of the LGBT community are leaving the State of Florida in droves.

    Adios. Take your immoral behavior elsewhere.
