Florida COVID death rate: 157 per 100k people
FL unemployment rate (Feb21): 4.7%

NY COVID death rate: 261
NY unemployment: 8.9%

This is why the media must to destroy DeSantis. They bet on Cuomo as their perfect anti-Trump foil & lost, and DeSantis makes them look like morons.
Ron DeSantis is not Donald Trump. Sure, he has the same pugnacious energy, but unlike a reality TV star billionaire with the discipline of a goldfish, DeSantis is actually good at *governing*. The media is picking the GOP POTUS frontrunner, once again, at their own peril.
The media is inoculating DeSantis from charges of RINOism by making him their Enemy #1, so DeSantis won't need cringey stunts or far-right pandering to get more cred w/the base. That gives him an incredible advantage in a general, almost certainly against Kamala Harris.
Let's play another game and compare Andrew Cuomo's performance to D+37 San Francisco, our 2nd densest city.

San Francisco COVID death rate: 1/1,750
SF unemployment rate: 6.3%
SF 1st vax given: 50%

NY death rate: 1/383
NY unemployment: 8.9%
NY 1st vax given: 33.8%

A justice-fueled #MeToo movement is a necessary societal good. The unceasing smear campaign containing not a modicum of evidence against Brett Kavanaugh corrodes it, with actual victims of sexual abuse bearing the brunt of the consequences. A thread 1/x washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-an…
The #MeToo movement works as a social implementation of the justice process, abiding by the general rules of due process in demanding that allegations be evaluated with empathy but on the basis of evidence, not that we take allegations at face value. 2/x washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-an…
All the major men culled by #MeToo had accusers w/ contemporaneously corroborating witnesses & most had multiple accusers with similar allegations. The overwhelming majority of men who assault once will do so again.

Kavanaugh doesn't fit this profile. 3/x washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-an…

Serious question to "conservatives" who want the gov't to regulate social media: what do you do when the GOP loses control of the White House & Congress? That day will come, even if only temporarily. When it does, do you want President AOC appointing the regulators?
Two things can be true at once:
1. It’s immoral for social media platforms to call themselves objective platforms and then inconsistently regulate speech.
2. The government has neither the right nor the competency to regulate this problem out of existence.
Name me the last problem the government has made better and not worse by getting involved. The only answers involve public goods, externalities, agency dilemmas, and monopolies. Social media falls under none of these umbrellas. Gab still exists.

USC SJP protesting @benshapiro. The girl saying "Do you think he's hiding under a table standing up?" runs SJP and led a harassment campaign against my Jewish writers and I two years ago. @benshapiro, do your thing. #FactsDontCareAboutYourFeelings
There's a time & a place to protest the actual bad guys *Ainsley Carry cough cough*, but I can't imagine what a miserable, anti-Semitic nerd you'd have to be to spend a Thirsty Thursday having a public meltdown about the JEWS instead of A. pregaming or B. doing actual work.
According to my friend watching the campus clown show, protestors yelled "punch him," directed towards Vice President Pence. I'm just spitballing here, but maybe that's why there's all of the law enforcement you claim is unnecessary to protect campus speakers?
