Good ol' Florida. :laughing0301:


"The unveiling of a new Florida license plate by Governor DeSantis has liberals and leftist organizations up in arms.

Liberals are constantly willfully misinterpreting traditional American and patriotic flags and symbols to try to associate them with “right wing extremism.” One such victim of this misinterpretation is the iconic Gadsden Flag.

This iconic flag dates back to the time of the revolution and has been seen as a symbol of freedom, defiance in the face of oppression, and American patriotism ever since.

Now, Governor Ron DeSantis has released a new Florida license plate which prominently features the Gadsden flag design:

It is sort of funny how Desantis said it was a warning to “out-of-state cars” not to Tread on Florida...Florida would pretty much not exist without out of state people treading on the state giving them their money

Screw that, on all the vanity plates.
IDK, but my neighbor is a vet and he has to pay an extra $15.00 per year, for his Vietnam plate.
Used to be $10.00.

THAT offends ME.
They should be no extra charge.
Regular price,

/----/ I'm so old, I remember when license plates were all the same in a state, and unique from the other 49. That was to make it easier for the police to identify out of staters. I guess plate readers made that practice obsolete.

Wow. this is huge news.
Big deal. Most states have a variety of available plates. Get the one you like and then put on the damned stickers until they abuse you and make you replace a perfectly good metal plate or pair of plates, depending on the state.

Throughout history, the Gadsden flag has been used a symbol of rebellion against governmental tyranny and today stands as a powerful symbol against government oppression including taxation, and wasteful spending. Is it just me or does anyone else see the irony of a government agency using this symbol?

It's sad, but not surprising, to see that DeSantis understands how easily manipulated you rubes are. In that respect he is very Trumpian.

Gestapo Chief Garland has declared that the Gadsden flag is a symbol of hate, racism and domestic terrorism.

I'm for it. If you see one of these plates, you'll know the driver is probably drunk or high, so you'll know to be extra careful around them.

That's what I use Biden/Harris stickers for. It also usually means the driver is uninsured.
