    Isn’t this state run by elected officials that are opposed to the infrastructure bill? SMDH. Why do they Keep voting these clowns into power.

      So, since you live in Florida, do you think a “good policy“ is to let COVID-19 spread some more, possibly developing into another variant which Our vaccines may not work for?

      Since you’re from Florida, do you think it was a good policy to open up spring break when every hoodlum in the south east decides “hey, finally a place we can get wild at” to the point that the mayor had to shut it down?

      LOL… Use a little sense. If you knew what you were talking about in Florida, you wouldn’t vote in Joel Greenberg or Matt Gaetz… I bet you voted for both of them, didn’t you?! LOL…

    • @Tyeler Nowell No sorry. I don’t do TV.

      @Bauks still dosent matter. You dont have to not watch tv to belive bullshit from the right.

    • They often don’t. These corrupt clowns also pass voter suppression bills and gerrymander their districts to stay in power.

  4. Just in time for the infrastructure bill. All this sh.. they’ve been ignoring. Florida is ruined 😒

    • @mr lewizz Nope. People die because of Capitalism every day, all day long.

    • @Terra death from other people will always happen, capitalism has killed who and what regime? i can name you several socialist leaders who literally committed genocide, why don’t you do some simple history home work and prove me right. again,not 1 socialist regime or country has worked.

    • @James Borden oh yea like the rest of America runs like clockwork with government funds :’)

    • Here’s an example. Wealthy companies taking advantage of people through paying low wages. Pull that thread in any direction you wish. You won’t find a shortage of death, I’m sure.

    You had me at ‘toxic Florida’

  10. my brain immediately went to the Toxic Avenger being born in Florida in the near future.

  11. So much for our Floridian Repukes and their phobias on proper regulations.

  12. If you’ve seen The Toxic Avenger, you know what happens next.

  13. So Florida is literally becoming a shithole after being one figuratively for so long

  14. Wow … who knew Actions had Consequences???

    Sounds like People always see all kinds of issues when they can’t cover up the problems cause those issues until they are out of control

      we can presume that this problem was relayed by workers, who dont know thier job as well as the company CEO ( eye roll)

    Fox News just called this environmental disaster a feather in DeSantis’ cap.

  18. This is the third time this toxic lake has nearly collapsed – but did Florida do anything the last two times? NO ! That would mean regulating the corrupt businesses who bribe republican politicians.

    “At least we’ve been cutting EPA regulations for the last 4 years” – someone watching a 20ft wall of radioactive waste slam through their house

      Ayyyy let’s go Minnesota I live in St. Paul

    • So what caused the EPA disaster in CO under Obama? I am sure you’ve got no idea. But hey, it’s probably worth the laugh.

      @Abdikadir Blogs how is everything going over there

    • “A sudden, uncontrolled breach could flood homes in the area and upend stacks of phosphogypsum, a waste product of phosphate mining, that hold the ponds.

      Phosphogypsum contains “appreciable quantities” of radioactive materials, such as uranium and radium, according to the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Noah Valenstein, secretary of the State Department of Environmental Protection, said on Saturday night that the water had “elevated levels of nutrients” but that it was not radioactive.” NYT

    They are going to upset the whole ecological system by dumping that poison into Tampa Bay! Hard to believe they haven’t worked out a solution prior to this mess‼️
