[ Editor’s Note: It was a given that DeSantis would defy the court shooting down his opposition to mask mandates for school kids. While he thinks he is on safe ground from the ‘let the parents decide’, that would negate public health regulations by parents and any political party looking to profit from that.

Gordon has pointed out the fraud in the Republican argument, as it does not include the long history of kids having to be vaccinated for a variety of things before they can even start school. Pediatrician offices will not let a parent bring an unvaccinated kid into their offices due to the liability if something spread to kids coming in for vaccinations.

So DeSantis is sticking to his guns on being anti-Covid protection as one of his planks for replacing Biden. Good luck with that.

September should reveal the peak of the Delta variant. Don’t be surprised to see the Repubs claim victory via ‘herd immunity’, betting that the Covid dead will fade in memory quickly, which I doubt, as the CDC is already prepping people that it may never go away, but recede into annual flu type status, requiring a shot for those who will take one.

If that happens, expect the pool of non vaxxers to decline year after year, with the wild card being a new variant with a jump in lethality on the scale that Delta hadJim W. Dean ]

TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Department of Education on Monday defied a recent ruling from a state judge and leveled its first sanctions against school board members who rejected the DeSantis administration’s orders on local mask mandates.

State officials withheld monthly salaries from board members in Alachua and Broward counties who supported the mask requirements, marking a major turning point in the weekslong fight over face coverings in schools.

The fines come even as a circuit court judge on Friday ruled the DeSantis administration lacked authority to punish schools for implementing up mask mandates. DeSantis had vowed to appeal the decision, but the sanctions leveled Monday from the education department appears to be a repudiation of the judge’s ruling.

Even before the state announced it was taking away salaries, Republican-leaning Brevard County on Monday approved a mask mandate for students after striking down the idea just two weeks ago.

  1. It’s obvious that the Delta variant of the original COVID-19 bioweapon is now being deployed in red states where vaccination rates are low and people are refusing to wear masks. This has to make the kill rate of this new bioweapon much higher. The sooner that Trumpsters realize they’ve been conned by their fearless leader (Most likely he got the vaccine in November, 2019 when the virus was first deployed in China!) the sooner we can get this thing under control. Your kids depend on you making good decisions about COVID-19, Trumpsters!
