Florida's governor has banned anything resembling a Vaccine Passport.

He is really just protecting the right to not get vaccinated or wear a mask so that they can infect others. I also suspect that might change a bit over time.

I think he will change his mind when nobody from Florida can enter a federal building or get on a plane, bus, or train.

Many people are saying (to infringe on a King Kon kopyright) that De Santis is a PCMbot whose programming has a prime directive of vacuuming up enough Zombie votes to stay in office, and perhaps to advance to the position of Heir of Kon in the great and pointless Game of Power.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Those against the Vaccine Passport are not taking consideration of folks who have businesses that depend on groups of people. Right now, if somebody goes into their establishment, and gets covid they can then sue the owner of where that happened as they didn't do this than that and its open season for the ambulance chasers. With, however, the Vaccine Passport, they will be safe from most of those kinds of suits. That being the case those against are going to lose their battle to legalize their own lack of brains.

Vaccine Passports just make sense and they WILL happen! (and Pondering has it right!)

Not gonna happen so he won't have to change his mind.

The way things stand right now, no plane, bus or train company can require it in Florida. As per Florida law. If the US Government chooses to shut down operations in Florida it's on them, not him.

And I really don't think that's gonna happen...do you?

Maybe in a few localities but opposition to the concept will overpower it.

In a world of democrats PIA would have it right. But we don't live there.

I am not convinced that such a law can get past the courts. Businesses have a right to control those who they would serve (at least that's the way it used to be). The only exceptions have to do with picking on an individual group or race, etc. I don't think a group determined to put themselves, and others, at risk would qualify?

Can you really get on a plane without a mask on in Florida? I keep reading stories about people getting banned from airlines, and arrested for trespassing when they refuse to follow mask requirements in private businesses. I think DeSantis's rules would only effect Florida state offices, if any of those got to court.

Of course not. D'ya think we're crazy? Mask rules are okay. Vaccination Passports are not.

It is now legal here to run over protesters if they get in your way too!
