A DeSantis appointed judge in Florida has declared the heavily gerrymander maps pushed by the governor are unconstitutional, and signaled that an injunction blocking them could be issued by tomorrow.
If that holds up to appeals, it is unlikely that they will be able to pass new maps in time. Which may result in the state SC drawing up the maps, as they had to ten years ago when (shocker) this exact same thing happened. Or they may default back to the maps the legislature passed before DeathSentence got ahold of it.
While the redrawn maps would still be Republican leaning, the preservation of all 4 majority black districts (rather than the elimination of 2) would tip the score back towards dems this cycle. With Dems with a net gain of 7 seats currently, and reps going from a gain of 1 seat to a net loss of -3.
Depending on how New York fairs with their new map, dems could get anywhere from +8 (“fair NY maps drawn by the SC are predicted to at least net the dems 1) or up to +10.

The Test for an Unfaithful Wife
11 Then the Lord said to Moses, 12 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘If a man’s wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him 13 so that another man has sexual relations with her, and this is hidden from her husband and her impurity is undetected (since there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in the act), 14 and if feelings of jealousy come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure—or if he is jealous and suspects her even though she is not impure— 15 then he is to take his wife to the priest. He must also take an offering of a tenth of an ephah[a] of barley flour on her behalf. He must not pour olive oil on it or put incense on it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, a reminder-offering to draw attention to wrongdoing.
16 “‘The priest shall bring her and have her stand before the Lord. 17 Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water. 18 After the priest has had the woman stand before the Lord, he shall loosen her hair and place in her hands the reminder-offering, the grain offering for jealousy, while he himself holds the bitter water that brings a curse. 19 Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, “If no other man has had sexual relations with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. 20 But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have made yourself impure by having sexual relations with a man other than your husband”— 21 here the priest is to put the woman under this curse—“may the Lord cause you to become a curse[b] among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.”
“‘Then the woman is to say, “Amen. So be it.”
23 “‘The priest is to write these curses on a scroll and then wash them off into the bitter water. 24 He shall make the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and this water that brings a curse and causes bitter suffering will enter her. 25 The priest is to take from her hands the grain offering for jealousy, wave it before the Lord and bring it to the altar. 26 The priest is then to take a handful of the grain offering as a memorial[c] offering and burn it on the altar; after that, he is to have the woman drink the water. 27 If she has made herself impure and been unfaithful to her husband, this will be the result: When she is made to drink the water that brings a curse and causes bitter suffering, it will enter her, her abdomen will swell and her womb will miscarry, and she will become a curse. 28 If, however, the woman has not made herself impure, but is clean, she will be cleared of guilt and will be able to have children.
29 “‘This, then, is the law of jealousy when a woman goes astray and makes herself impure while married to her husband, 30 or when feelings of jealousy come over a man because he suspects his wife. The priest is to have her stand before the Lord and is to apply this entire law to her. 31 The husband will be innocent of any wrongdoing, but the woman will bear the consequences of her sin.’”
Not exactly the intent behind “Pro-choice” since it’s a forced abortion, and a point is made about it only being when adultery has been committed.
But, uh, the Bible just straight up said and gave instructions on how to abort a fetus, complete with it through a priest ordained ritual.

“Lies and bigotry” is way too broad of a subject to ban. Half of Twitter would be banned overnight. Trying to set that standard would lead to unfair enforcement and people getting banned for what boils down to wrong think. As for Disney, the policy effects are good, I want them to effect more than Disney, that would be great.

Oh, so you want your own “Truth Social” where people just think like you. I’m thankful it isn’t that and won’t be. Also, It doesn’t just apply to corporations, the effects of the law are a good thing, I think copyright protections should be shortened.

@Background Pony #F298
No, I think that toxicity and repeating spreading lies should also be subject to perma-bans. It’s not just for bots for a very good reason.
And again, the people enforcing it will likely half-ass it for other corporations, since they are targeting only Disney. I wouldn’t put it pass them to word it in a way that minorities get screwed over if a corporation whats something they made.

@Meanlucario
Again the problem is defining truth and toxicity. This is why Twitter and Facebook have had so many issues trying to enforce this over their users.
Have you read the proposed law? It spunds like your just standing opposed to it BECAUSE the author is a Republican. The Republicans aren’t going to be enforcing it themselves you know.

I mean, it’s not that hard. See what words they are using and how for toxicity, and see if they are linking or quoting/claiming information that is false. If that’s too much for a popular site to handle, than they need to redesign their site to not be subject to easy misuse.
Yes, because that party has a bad history to screw over those who aren’t benefiting them or are part of a group they deem undesirable.
Background Pony #BC45
@Meanlucario
No, it isn’t that easy at all. Who decides what is and isn’t misinformation? When does criticism cross the line into toxicity? Who is deciding that the disagreement has now turned into discrimination? That is far from an easy thing to decide.

Pretty sure telling your followers to drink bleach, down fish tank cleaner or horse medicine in place of actual doctor approved vaccines could be considered misinformation.
Like, if nothing else something that extreme could be the standard.
As sad as it is the above is infamously not a hypothetical.

Again, words and wording use. Are you really going to tell me that saying a group should die or that without X-ethnicity, world peace would have been accomplished? Removing perma-bans only encourage these people since they aren’t punished much for their bigotry. It’s called removing consequences from actions.

What’s sad is what you just said can be defined as misinformation that would be bannable,
  1. Trump told his followers to drink bleach,
    Trump never told his followers to drink bleach. Trump was talkign with his aid who mentioned that it seems disinfectants worked well on surfaces and he asked if it was possible to exploit that for fighting the virus in the body.
Misinformation.
  1. Trump told his followers to drink fish tank cleaner
    Trump never told his followers to drink fish tank cleaner. He bragged about the prospects of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine and it’s potential.
Misinformation
  1. Trump told his followers to take horse medicine
    The drug in question is used both to treat horses and people. He bragged about how effective it can be based on limited research that was then proven wrong.
Not quite the level of misinformation, though still dishonest.
  1. He told his followers to do these things instead of getting a vaccine.
    Trump has been pro vaccine since the beginning, mostly because he wants to take credit for the vaccine existing
Misinformation
This right here is why the idea that it is easy to just ban people pushing misinformation is something easy.

Call them an idiot then or just don’t acknowledge them. Straight up block them if needed. Twitter collectively shitting on someone is a consequence.

Banning people who are being racist/sexist/any other bigotry isn’t a good point? The issue isn’t that people can’t block them, but giving them a platform to spread their toxicity to those who want to listen to them and reinforce their own toxic views is. I hope you never become a moderator if you can’t even understand something as simple as that.
Background Pony #F298
@Meanlucario
Thinking that not banning them means they face no consequences is a bad point. Thinking that banning them is enough of a consequence for them to stop is a bad point. Thinking the company is going to be able to effectively draw the line along what is and isn’t bigotry and enforce it effectively is a bad point. All of these things are bad points, as many of the other things you’ve said.
