The annual 60 day session of the Florida Legislature kicked off Tuesday with the traditional State of the State address by the Governor, in this case a wide-ranging, powerful and generally well received speech by Governor Ron DeSantis.

President Biden was about as amped up and on fire as I've ever heard him Tuesday afternoon, as he spoke in Atlanta and made a passionate, and I think desperate plea for the U.S. Senate to pass voting rights legislation. The President really ripped into Republicans as you'll hear, and finally called for an end to the filibuster, so the Democrats will only need 51 Senate votes, not 60 to ram their legislation through, which would essentially nationalize our elections. Even without the filibuster, I still think this legislation, which I'm totally opposed to, is going down to defeat....another stinging defeat for Biden, who's failing miserably on every major issue.
