Why do you want to suspend Shorty McJizzy?
Can’t you just ignore him?




Woke!

Sorry that probably wasn't the best video for an intro. Watch this one.

Especially, at the 5:20 mark where he talks about helping out dogs and then shows his 3 yo golfing.

I understand some Baja Nomads may be critical of DeSantis and may list more impressive achievements and experience, as well as more military awards, but this article pretty much sums up his background. Anyone feel qualified to call him a loser? 😁



Who Is Ron DeSantis?
Wallace BruschweilerMay 30, 2021
Just in case you were wondering why 60 Minutes had a hit piece on this Paisan – the Governor of Florida. Anyone who criticizes him – I have a question for you – can you please post your education and service to our country resume so we can put things in perspective?

“Ronald Dion DeSantis was born on September 14, 1978, in Jacksonville, Florida, the son of Karen (née Rogers) and Ronald DeSantis. He is of Italian descent. His family moved to Orlando, Florida, before relocating to Dunedin, Florida, when he was six years old. In 1991, he was a member of the Little League team from Dunedin National that made it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

After graduating from Dunedin High School in 1997, DeSantis attended Yale University. He was captain of Yale’s varsity baseball team and joined the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. On the Yale baseball team, DeSantis was an outfielder; as a senior in 2001, he had the team’s best batting average at .336.

He graduated from Yale in 2001 with a B.A. magna cum laude in history. He then spent a year as a history teacher at the Darlington School. DeSantis then attended Harvard Law School, graduating in 2005 with a Juris Doctor cum laude.

DeSantis received his Reserve Naval officer’s commission and assignment to the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) in 2004 at the U.S. Naval Reserve Center in Dallas, Texas, while still a student at Harvard Law School. He completed Naval Justice School in 2005. Later that year, he received orders to the JAG Trial Service Office Command South East at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, as a prosecutor. In 2006, he was promoted from lieutenant, junior grade to lieutenant. He worked for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO), working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility.

In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command Group in Coronado, California, where he was assigned to SEAL Team One and deployed to Iraq with the troop surge as the Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah.

DeSantis returned to the U.S. in April 2008, at which time he was reassigned to the Naval Region Southeast Legal Service. The U.S. Department of Justice appointed him to serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Middle District of Florida. DeSantis was assigned as a trial defense counsel until his honorable discharge from active duty in February 2010. He concurrently accepted a reserve commission as a lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps of the US Navy Reserve.

He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal.”

Yes, but it’s OK to say it because that’s what “Woke” is all about! At least Doug moved this to politics where it belongs!

I don't see how this is Baja Politics.

About Desantis:

US conservatives like his politics, liberals don't. It's that simple and very tiresome.

A lot of name calling goes on here that should be banned! Some of it is from obvious trolls, which is understandable, some of it from other Americans, which is not!

I'm not very up-to-date on these new-fangled political terms, but from the context here on BN I've been assuming that being "woke" means calling names or otherwise insulting others order to attempt to increase one's own personal stature.

The ironic thing about that childish behavior is that contrary to evoking admiration or increasing one's prestige, it just makes the wokie look like an idiot with no credibility. :rolleyes:

The term "woke" has been used in the black community for decades.

"alert to social and/or racial discrimination and injustice".

I consider myself an informed voter, and certainly have opinions about the politicians, and policies that are going to shape our future. I do not come to this forum to engage in debate about things that have nothing to do with enjoying Baja, or learning about trips to other parts of the world.

I can't stand zealots from the right or left! Only a troll would come to this forum slinging insults, name calling and labeling people based on whether they checked the "not Hillary" or "not Donald" box in 2016!

Peace, love, and lobster tacos!

Loser loser loser.

Thread started about FL helping out at the border. Guess that's Baja related.

This post about a ****** with his head pretty far up the a$$ of the former President ****** is crap. Just more political posturing meant to start arguments.

F' that ****** and anyone else who thinks he's anything but a ******. Any more questions?

JZ thinks I need to keep an open mind. I'm trying.

DeSantis worked for JAG as prosecutor at GITMO! (Navy)! You might want to consider that as well as who endorsed him!

And yet again you play the race card. Anyone that has a different idea from yours is a racist.

Why do you continue to spew your hatred on here?

In my book, you are the definition of a racist because you judge people by the color of their skin, not the content of their character.



And you the Trumpster cheerleader/Q anon guy is saying this?
This board n ever ceases to amaze me. But still entertaining on how blind white Americans can be to reality

You do you realize colleges are brainwashing our youth with their leftist ideology?

His bill is aimed at allowing freedom of thought, no matter you political leaning.

Of course, it's portrayed as "racist" as that is the magic word that gets used every time someone has a different opinion.

I am amused when you conservative white people send your kids off to college and then have a Heart attack because your kids meet ethnic people, and are exposed to new ideas :lol::lol::lol:

You Calabasas MAGA people should have a good old fashioned book burning for July 4! Florida Fahrenheit 451! :lol::lol::lol:

Just like the potential origin of CV19 being from a lab was a conspiracy theory? That's what every Lib publication told us last year. Now libs have had to walk it back, admitting it is a real possibility, likely the most probable.

I know you aren't dumb (unlike someone I won't mention). So, don't try to kid me. You know damn well that colleges are indoctrinating our youth with left leaning ideas.
