My personal pronouns are "Huh?" and "WTF?".Matthew Noto

Not so fast Kung Flu prick pushers. Florida's DeSantis will not be making children under 5 to take the prick.

In a clash with the Biden White House, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to refuse to have the state purchase vaccines for children under 5 years old.

“We are not going to have any programs where we’re trying to jab 6-month-old babies with mRNA,” he said during a news conference at The Pig Bar-B-Q in Callahan. “We still have not ordered it. We’re not going to order it.”

Per the Orlando Sentinel “Florida is the only U.S. state that did not preorder COVID-19 vaccines for kids under 5 before the Food and Drug Administration authorized them. After the FDA granted an emergency use authorization Friday, the state allowed health care providers to place orders for the vaccines, something providers in other states had been able to do since June 3.”

Well DUH!!!!

While chronic stress is a key risk factor for heart disease and stroke, most cat and dog owners say pets help them chill out and stay active.

A new American Heart Association (AHA) survey of 1,000 pet owners found 95% relying on their animal companions for stress relief. About 7 in 10 said they'd rather spend time with their pet than watch television, and nearly half (47%) said their pets helped them be more active.

Residents ‘left in the dark’ after erection of ‘smelly’ pole which blocks view


A new pole in an Oldham road has angered residents – with one resident saying it ‘stinks'.

Sophie Johnson, aged 29, lives on Link Road in Springhead.

About two months ago, the street WhatsApp group was alerted that a letter had been attached to a nearby lamppost saying there would be wooden posts erected on the street.

Sophie says six residents, including herself, all wrote letters of objection to Openreach, who erected the pole, but did not get a response or even an acknowledgement.

Elon Musk is certainly an interesting guy to watch.

Employees Sue Elon Musk’s Tesla Over Mass Layoffs

Two former Tesla employees filed suit against the automaker on Sunday for allegedly violating federal law through its decision to lay off much of its staff.

Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk told executives that he had a “super bad feeling” about the economy and asked them to begin dismissing 10% of employees. According to a class action complaint filed by John Lynch and Daxton Hartsfield — who worked at Tesla’s Gigafactory 2 plant in Sparks, Nevada — the company violated the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act by failing to provide 60 days of advance written notice regarding the mass layoff.

Elected Wisconsin politicians get the opportunity to put up or shut up about abortion.

Politico published a leaked draft opinion in May related to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case centered around Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade in decades. The leaked draft indicates the court could overturn its Roe v. Wade decision declaring abortion a protected right under the United States Constitution.

The Court is expected to release its official ruling this month. Should the justices stick with the ruling in the leaked draft, decisions about abortion will be turned back over to states. Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) has asked Democrats in the state legislature to repeal Wisconsin’s pre-Roe law. The state’s Democrat attorney general also said he would not enforce the state’s pro-life law if the Supreme Court overturns its 1973 decision, Townhall reported:

One very lucky basketball official. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A basketball game in New York was in full swing when one of the referees suddenly collapsed on the court.

That's when Toledo Glass City basketball player Myles Copeland jumped into action.

"I run toward the emergencies, I don't run away from them," Copeland said.

That's because the 25-year-old is also a firefighter.
