  • Change wording of three items to “pedophile school employee protection against Parents in Schools bill” and “Housing protection for illegal human sex trafficking victims so lawyers and judges will stay busy for another few years, overcrowded jails emptied” and “surtax extortion for AOC-inspired social infrastructure instead of roadwork referendum.”

  • Maybe Poe can become a third-grade teacher for his next career and spend a whole day talking to the children about “trans people” and what that means. Maybe he can include some talk about sexual fetishes and different types of porn. It would be like drinking from the white water fountain or sitting in the front of the bus. Think of the potential media attention as he battles Darth DeathSantis so valiantly.
