I must say, this does seem a wee bit intrusive to me. It certainly intrudes on the rights of local government to govern locally.

Meanwhile . . . .

Afterthought:

I keep receiving phone calls informing me that the warranty on my 2003 GMC Sonoma pick-up truck has expired.

Who woulda thunk?

(As someone who was raised Ford, I am distressed to admit that said vehicle is one damned fine piece of work. And a vehicle that is paid for is priceless.)

A “cheer mom” uses “deepfake” images in an attempt to force her daughter’s rivals to leave a cheerleading squad. A snippet:

Investigators say 50-year-old Raffaela Spone was trying to get the girls kicked off the Victory Vipers, in Chalfont.

Spone is accused of manipulating photos from the social media accounts of three girls to make it look like they were drinking and smoking, and even digitally altered them to make the girls appear naked.

“The suspect is alleged to have taken a real picture and edited it through some photoshopping app to make it look like this teenaged girl had no clothes on to appear nude, when in reality that picture was a screengrab from the teenager’s social media in which she had a bathing suit on,” said Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub.

We are a society of stupid.

Arizona Congressperson Debbie Lesko takes a discriminating view. Here’s a snippet from the article by the Arizona Republic’s Laurie Roberts:

Today, it’s the remarkably compassionate Rep. Debbie Lesko, who apparently believes it’s just fine if undocumented workers want to pick the lettuce in her caesar salad and trim the bushes in her Glendale yard.

Just don’t put those “very good workers” in line to be vaccinated against a potentially fatal virus that has disproportionately attacked Latinos and other minority populations.

Aside:

Looking at this and the previous post, one is tempted to conclude that cruelty and callousness are Republican Family Values.
