Florida is a backwards place. I hope, for the sake of the registrants forced to live there, that this doesn’t pass.

Flori-dah is as ass backwards as you can get, and who are they trying to fool with ” protect the children “

I recieved a response to my critical email to him. He had the audacity to refer to a bible passage.
So typical of hypocrites to fall back on religion to justify hateful actions. I encourage all to email him and show support for citizen rights.

This idiot actually referred to James 4 11-12 in his email! What a hypocrite!

I’d love to see his response. So much for Republicans being the party of “small government.” In this case, they are diminishing the rights of the individual and eliminating their choices in favor of an authoritarian state.

Another email sent to a politician to point out how much damage he does, deliberately or accidentally, to his community and society in general.
Although, from what I’ve read and heard from that state’s state and federal reps, the dark ages are alive and well in sunny Florida!

its long over due that all this crap needs to stops , these people that introduce these bills should be fired and deported as constitutional haters , and should be viewed as a danger to the security of our nation ,

So, we can’t work anywhere. That seems to be where this is going to me.
Why don’t they just put us all on welfare and give us our own private bridge to live under?
Then they can make laws preventing us from receiving welfare too.

Well it may not be as bad as it sounds. At least it is not specifically targeting registrants. The text of the bill:
A rental agreement or rental agreement renewal must contain a prominent written disclosure expressly stating whether the landlord has required any of his or her current or potential employees to undergo the background screening required under paragraph (2)(a). If the landlord has required such screening, such disclosure must also state:
1. The date of the background screening.
2. The full name and job description of the current employee, or the full name and anticipated job description of the potential employee, whose background screening results indicated that he or she was convicted of:
a. Credit card theft;
b. A crime involving violence; or
c. Sexual battery. ( “sexual battery” under Florida statute means rape/ penetration of an object)

Landlords are not/ and will not be required to run background checks on anyone.

It’s Florida, so it IS as bad as it sounds, intent is to appear to cate about safety of voters, not citizens.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
