Early voting for the Georgia runoffs is ongoing. Already its record for early turnout has been broken with over 300,000 votes cast.
Currently Warnock is leading by 4 points.

On one hand, why shouldn’t I buy chewing gum? Obviously I’m going to put it in the trash when it’s spent.
On the other hand, some people will spit it on the sidewalk, unless they have a nanny following them everywhere. These are mostly the same people who create a multitude of other problems for society.
I don’t envy the lawmakers who either have to take freedom away from people or watch people abuse their freedom.

Whoever pushed that law probably had a bad experience in a city with lots of chewed gum on the streets and stepping on some of the fresher stuff, and/or with “rebellious youngsters” chewing gum loudly (and maybe even lasciviously!) while being talked to by an adult.
They could have approached the issue with littering fines or rules in schools or whatever, but they went ham-fisted. To be fair, it’s a city state in a precarious position, geopolitically; perhaps they feel they need to be extreme in all things just to survive.

You should see how they enforce their telecommunications laws. We fucked up some of the paperwork, and basically had to NOPE everyone out of the country. Left all the equipment, personal items, clothes - everyone just went straight to the airport and took the first flight to anywhere.
People talk about the gum laws, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
I’m not saying they shouldn’t be like that - like you said, they’re living on a knives’ edge in a lot of ways.
But stuff that normally would just net the company a fine and a sternly worded letter results in corporal punishment there.

So most people?
The ones who put their gum under tables are jagoffs, but spitting on sidewalks et al, while rude, is something that everybody does?

I think it’s a cultural difference, because I wouldn’t say that it’s the case here. Some people still do spit out gum on the sidewalk, but they aren’t a majority.
If I was to compare it to a well known place… in London, sidewalks were gummed up about one or two orders of magnitude more than here.

A new bill, HB1011, out of Oklahoma would forcibly medically detransition anyone under 21, including Transgender ADULTS.
It bans things like “aesthetic procedures” and likely even hair removal. It must be stopped.

One of the objectives of the ban was to prevent vandals from using spent chewing gums to disrupt Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) services. Before the ban was enforced, there had been many instances in which vandals stuck chewing gum on door sensors of MRT trains, which prevented the doors from functioning properly and causing disruptions in train services.[3] The chewing gum ban was implemented to eradicate problems created by chewing-gum litter in public places like cinemas, parks and common areas of housing estates such as lifts, staircases and corridors, as well as the high costs involved to clean up the litter.[4] The Housing and Development Board (HDB) reportedly spent S$150,000 annually to clean up chewing gum litter.

Wow, sounds like they had a serious problem there. Now their law sounds more reasonable.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen chewing gum on elevator floor. I saw graffiti in an elevator. I saw plastic elevator buttons burnt with a lighter. But not chewing gum.

He randomly punctuates and capitalizes everything all the time. His tenuous grasp on how English works isn’t limited to his speech.
Yeah. It’s a Twitter post that’s providing an image of a Truth Social post, which itself is just bootleg Twitter.
If Truth Social isn’t one of the top hits then my best guess is people are Googling the reposts more than they are the source so Truth Social is suppressed in the search algorithm.

A massive power outage in North Carolina is being attributed to an intentional attack on several power substations. This part is confirmed by various news sources.
Speculation as to the perp is centering around a local ex-army vet who resigned from her position after the Army lunched an investigation as to her potential ties to the Jan 6th incident.
She apparently posted an ominous message on social media shortly after the attacks claiming to know why it had happened and that it was “gods work”.
