    And who is the arbiter of what is “woke” exactly? As one of the public school educators that DeSantis has declared war on, I take it very personally and seriously when folks mess with my pension. Who is he, Patronis, or Moody to decide what the funds are invested in? Or what and who decides what social political or ideological interests are? I noticed you use the term “woke” multiple times’ in this article. Here’s hoping some “woke folks” challenge this assault on teachers’ pensions in court. Shame on you DeSantis, Patronis, and Moody- teachers are vital to the community and the world. You and your policies are pushing us out of the profession with your attacks on what we say, do and teach. Shame on you and all your “Non Woke” BS!

    Yes indeed! Let State retirement funds focus investments on America’s future in tobacco, AR-15 street weapons, Brazil’s economy to destroy one of planet earth’s remaining rain forest, and fossil fuels that will be eliminated within the next 50 years.

    Let’s focus on the creation of an imaginary 1940’s America instead of a 21st century America.

    Republicans have had a firm control of many many red states for many many decades. North and South Dakota, North and South Carolina, Idaho, Mississippi, Alabama….come to mind.

    Americans need to ask themselves this simple question. If Republicans have been running these States for decades ….which red state would they hold up as a model for economic and social prosperity? Certainly not Texas or Arizona….. those two States were recently ranked as America’s worst for healthcare, families and education. How about Lindsey Graham’s South Carolina????? for every dollar SC sends to the National Treasury the state receives a whopping $7.50 in return. Or let’s talk about another federal government subsidized nanny state ….. FLORIDA….. For every dollar Florida sends to the National treasury…. Florida grifts back $4.50 in return. Florida has 9000 teachers absent from the classroom. Like Arizona, Florida is recruiting college dropouts to teach (babysit) in classrooms. 50% of Florida’s third graders CAN NOT READ.


    Sure ….. let’s stay asleep in Florida and continue to chastise young Americans for their future vision of “wokeness!”

      Pathetic liar!
      Total mistruths H.

      Florida’s teachers shortage is much less than national, several states have more. It’s a national challenge.

      Gov has hired more, addressing it compared to Biden and you whining like the Lincoln predator towel boy towel you are.

      Spare us.

    No mention of Jeb! here or his administration’s push to buy up stock in Enron (the Bushes in Texas told him to do it), or the giant scam of buying education software from a company owned or run by Neil Bush, former Silverado Bank scammer of the elderly, who had to duck out of sight for a while.
    End result: tampering with the investments cost the Florida pension system $350,000,000 when Enron crashed and its’ stock went off the boards.
    Florida stands to gain the most from carbon reduction, the climate deniers will at some point disappear in the face of undeniable change of conditions that not only affect shorelines, but our drinking water supply, conditions necessary to grow certain crops and livestock. Backward thinking is what true conservatives are famous for along with excuses: it was going to happen anyway, it was only a tourist visit, etc. all symptoms of the selfishness that prevents them from sacrificing to protect the future.

      Ocean LMAO, you really in the back ward thinking. Silverado? Neil B?
      You forget to mention George HW was seen on grassy knoll, JFK. Or that Hinckley parents were friends of the Bush family. The lefts conspiracies are deranged. How bout W planned 9-11? Deranged

      You clowns, Newsom’s in-laws ran from him and bout a Naples estate when idiot son in law shut down Cali.
      He follows the cuomo play book, cheating all over the place.

      How do you all awake every day with your liberal dogma so prevalent, such extremists.

      You are wrong ocean, all science and reasonable analysis is that DeSantis has preserved Florida’s environment. Best gov in 50 yes! Major accomplishments, received huge endorsement from Florida Trust this week.

      Florida freedom, Florida liberty, Florida family! Florida, DeSantis, do for America what you’ve accomplished for Florida.
