    Dutch:

    Even though the hurricane seems to be aimed at your house, I hope that it skips on by.

    As you may be aware, DeSantis votes against an aid package for New Jersey when he was in Congress in 2013.

    As a newly elected congress member in 2013, now-governor of Florida Ron DeSantis was one of the 67 House Republicans who voted against a $9.7 billion federal flood insurance assistance package for the victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey. Now, with Florida on the ropes, DeSantis asked President Joe Biden for an emergency declaration to free up federal money and federal help even before the storm hit, and said Tuesday, “We all need to work together, regardless of party lines.”

    Yes I got hit right on. I've had about 4 hurricanes and 1 tornado in the US; one in Beaufort SC, two in Naples FL and now two in Fort Myers. Of course you get sick of all the politics being played right now. DeSantis is an huge hypocrite as well Rick Scott and use the media as propaganda for themselves. I'm amazed that the average American refuses to see the "games" which they play over the people who lost everything. I bet that they don't get poorer by playing these games. What a country!!

    I was kind of lucky. I had an hurricane proof roof and only some soffits blew out and lots of yard damage which will grow up again in no time. I'm a bit in-land, so most of the damage occurred at Ft. Myers Beach.

    I could not write for a while, no internet or phone.

    The sun is shining, nice above 80's temperature; can't complain. However due to this type of weather the snakes found out I had a pool so they swam rounds in it. In the meantime I'm very busy to cleanup the yard and watch the "nonsense" on TV.

    Political speaking the mess in this country goes on as usual; Lying, cheating, ripping -off people and pumping millions of dollars into the "election scams", seems an even more national sport than before.

    The Trump clan plays their games all day long and rakes in the dough ; the "justice system" does nothing solid, except rakes also in the dough for themselves ask the Kardashians. How long can this super corrupt country last; Biden just talks or goes on outings, but closes his eyes for all the corruption here and the GOP scams. Sorry this whole government right now is one big joke.

    I got my elections ballots; however half of it is selecting "judges" without any indication of their "party" affiliation. No wonder we get lots of "crook" judges. Sorry people but I don't consider this country "honest" in anything.

    So I guess I've got to "Google" to find out what these judges stand for. It is just like any Russian roulette.

    I give this country about an "0" related to "brains" ask DeSantis.

    Dutch:

    In theory judicial appointments should not be driven my politics, but the reality is that politics plays a big role in their nomination. Trump managed to get three ultra-conservative justices on the Supreme Court, and judge Cannon (the one helping him on the seized document case) was confirmed after he lost the election.

    The Arizona voter guide lists judges by their approval rating by attorneys, so I just picked the judges with the highest approval ratings. If they were listed by their affiliation with the Federalist society, since I would simply vote against all of them.

    A recent opinion drafted by the Judicial Conference of the United States’ Committee on Codes of Conduct advised federal judges against formal affiliation with the Federalist Society and the American Constitution Society (ACS). This refines past guidance permitting membership.

    Additionally, the 2020 opinion states that judges should monitor the activities of the American Bar Association (ABA) to ensure membership remains consistent with the Code of Conduct for United States Judges.

    While the Committee views the Federalist Society and the ACS as law-related organizations, they both support distinct ideologies. The Federalist Society describes itself as “a group of conservatives and libertarians dedicated to reforming the current legal order.” The ACS is a “nationwide network of progressive lawyers, law students, judges, scholars and many others” and has said that it was formed, in part, in response to the Federalist Society’s success.

    The Committee said that affiliation with the Federalist Society and ACS is inconsistent with Canons 1, 2, 4, and 5 of the Code. Membership could convey endorsement of ideologies advocated by the organization, call into questions the judge’s impartiality, and impact the public’s trust in the integrity and independence of the judiciary.

    Six of the nine judges on the Supreme Court are members of the Federalist Society.

    Arizona, Thanks for the explanation. It only again proves my point that these judges are not impartial or are not party affiliated. May be on "paper" they are supposed to be "impartial" but in "practice" they are not.

    Since in this country there is an "two" party system which determines the laws here either "left" or "right" without an "middle" then you may as well have or end up in an "dictatorship" which it seems that lots of people here want.

    If there is no "middle" then indeed everything becomes "partisan". Thus the only solution is to have multiple parties running the "show". Do we really want an Putin type or an Xi? here. Trump would love to become the dictator here and join them. He's not polishing his "plane" for nothing. It is time that the "people" here get better education in these things.

    Especially looking at interviews on TV, most people who vote don't do any research about any candidate, so no wonder that the persons with the "biggest mouths" and most "money" collected and "lies" are elected. Shaking my old head in disgust.

    It was mentioned on the news that the GOP in Miami is totally run by the Proud Boys. DeSantis can then also be very "proud I guess. But yeah, the whole of the GOP lives in la la land, it shows.

    In the meantime Biden enjoys himself driving cars at Jay Leno's place. But yeah be nice and just only "talk" and do nothing against the crooks here. Twitter is now in hands of another crook named Musk; he certainly will help Trump who then gets another megaphone.

    Sorry people but this terrible "circus" show will have consequences if the GOP wins the midterms with all these braindead asses. Shaking my old head in disgust. Putin is loving all of this for sure!!

    It is now proven that our fantastic Judge Clarence Thomas is completely in "bed" with Trump. Such was mentioned on the news. I always was informed that any Supreme Court Judge is supposed to be "impartial". But nowadays no one is.

    Thus as I've said a million times the stupidity here is that you can't run an country with 2 parties only who are miles apart and of one party is "super Corrupt" and wants to win at all cost without any "decency".

    Everything here is "partisan". The GOP would love to make this another Russia with the "rich" and "crooks" in power.

    The "midterms" will show if indeed we will near the "cliff" and fall of.

    Looking at the picture today, then it is kind of "weird" that the "unemployment figures" are really good but the "idiots" in the Fed keep, boosting the "rates"; now again with .75% points. I guess they, because of Trump do want to kill the economy here. The housing market already has an downturn because of it. The only one's benefitting from it are the "rich" as well certain companies who can get higher margins on their goods because of it. The "idiot" Powell placed by Trump in the Fed is ruining this country all the way. He has no clue whatsoever; it is not the 1930's at all but Powell behaves like it.

    Sorry people this country is going down the drain due to total incompetence.
