They're having a golf cart parade for Biden at the Villages in Florida.

If Trump has lost the Villages, he's lost Florida.

3. Oh, this is fantastic!

And it's a great idea. We can organize CAR PARADES for Biden in our own communities during the coming weeks.

9. Wow, what a welcome change.

*beep*beep* They decorated all of the carts, that's so adorable! Oh, that makes me so happy. Good for them.

If Trump has lost the Villages, he's lost Florida.


Good.

10. The Villages just sounds awful

I mean this is nice, and huzzah, and all that. But the whole thing of the Villages just sounds terrible to me.

No thanks.

I'm not that far away from retirement (well a dozen years or so) but nothing about that lifestyle seems appealing to me in the least.

Plus, Florida. Amirite?
(no offense to any Floridians reading this).

13. The stories of sexual escapades at The Villages will make you blush.

The place is like a giant senior orgy. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But they ain't down there to golf. Google at your own risk.

14. That also sounds awful.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions that the place is just gross.

17. Wuh...Whutt?

i'm blushing for them

Forgot to add my former neighbor's black parents live there in the Villages and love it. They said there's lots of social clubs & activities to do so it gets them out of the house and are able to retain an active lifestyle. We have a similar retirement community here called Sun City & 60% are Republicans. One lady told me she put up a Biden sign but didn't want to put a Biden sticker on her car because she was afraid someone would deliberately hit it or key it.

18. Ex Floridian here... and I will say that the BEST decision I ever made was to leave that state.

 

Lived there the first 45 years of my life. Had a BA in poly sci (on the ten year plan ), and my first job at UF which required a degree, paid 19,500. In 1989. I'm sure UF would never have bragged at that time to their graduates, they could expect a jaw-dropping 19,500 in their first job based on their UF degree. That was the equivalent of 9.40 per hour (2088 work hrs), except it was salaried, with no timecard. Obviously Florida was one of those patriotic sounding "Right To Work" states, which really meant right to work for less.

Growing up there I was also well aware that the veneer of racial equality in Florida was a mile wide and1/16th inch deep. One little scratch and it would come bubbling to the surface.

Looking back, I would have been consumed with shame at what that state has become. I STILL am ashamed, but can't imagine how I would have coped if I had stayed there. SO glad I moved to better pastures.

I still have some good friends there (especially my very small group of quilting queers, of which I was the only queer, but it was named for me ).

I only go back for funerals.

The Villages sounds like typical "I got mine, screw you" senior citizens, mostly from the north. But even though they are probably financially secure, I bet EVERY ONE OF THEM receives SS. You fuck with their SS, and you got a raging bunch of blue hairs (in this case bleach blond with grey roots) and pot bellies on your case. And they are probably dropping like flies from the virus. In the mind of the turd, it IS, for the most part, killing all the right people. (Does THAT sound familiar?)

So typical, but if they help us get rid of the gigantic turd floating in OUR White House toilet boil, I will gladly accept their assistance.

11. Now, I hope Rotonda West does it too.

We bought a piece of vacation property down there so I belong to a FB group for the civic association. Apparently they were saying that Trump flags weren't political signs and political signs (with Trump or 'Make America Great Again') on them weren't political either and didn't have to adhere to the Civic Association rules or the Charlotte Co. flag/political signage laws. Of course, someone wanted Biden stuff up and he ended up being fined. He's taking it higher up, but it's Florida.

I would love to have seen the whole Villages parade. I didn't realize there are 60K households in the Villages! I thought Rotonda West was big with just over 8K.

15. Good that Biden supporters wear masks and social distance

while Trump supporters are busy spewing racism and getting retweeted by Trump himself.

Between COVID and STDs, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near the Villages.

22. It's gotta be Ed McGinty behind this!

I just love him and follow him on Twitter. Heís all in for Biden and isnít shy about it!! He stands for what he believes in down in the Villages. Takes a lot of flak for it.

24. Good for them!

 

I am glad they are not letting themselves be bullied by the right-wingers in their community. Republicans clearly hate seniors and would be happy letting them just all die off if they had their way. I can't understand for the life of me why any senior citizen would be a fan of them.

They want to take away their benefits and they are encouraging this virus that overwhelmingly affects and kills them. Why are so many of them so blind? I applaud these brave seniors for sticking up for themselves!
