This shot was taken by me in Florida in Sarasota. I have no real idea as to the motivation behind why this sign exists. The clever captions write themselves. All I can think of is that the powers that be believe in an overabundance of caution. And/or that the population is so challenged, due to substances or the sun or Geo-magnetic anomalies, that such cautions are necessary. Judge for yourselves.

n.b. This is real, not photoshopped or dicked around with in any way.

Florida state Representative says God has told him to rewrite abortion bill with no exceptions

A Florida state representative told a group that God told him to a rewrite an abortion bill without exceptions for rape or incest.

In a speech given to Women for Responsible Legislation group in Pensacola, Florida, state representative Mike Hill said God spoke directly to him about a restrictive abortion bill he had previously tried and failed to pass in Florida’s legislature.

"As plain as day, God spoke to me,” Mr Hill, a Republican, told the group. “He said 'that wasn't my bill,' talking about the heartbeat detection bill that I filed. He said 'that wasn't my bill.'"

“I knew immediately what he was talking about,” the state representative confirmed.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

NEW PORT RICHEY — Two Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies were wounded early Saturday in a gun battle that started after a man shot at his wife's Amazon Alexa smart speaker.

One bullet grazed a deputy's hand, and another wounded the accused shooter in the head. But K-9 Deputy Chris Stone suffered life-threatening injuries when a gunshot to his leg severed his femoral artery, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said. Stone, 41, was rushed into emergency surgery at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point and was recuperating in his hospital room Saturday afternoon, the Sheriff's office said.

...

Deputies arrived at 7349 Humbolt Ave. after a woman called 911 around midnight to report a domestic dispute between her parents. Peterson had shot at her mother's Alexa, the daughter told deputies. The couple had been known to fight but usually their arguments did not escalate to calling the police, Nocco said.

Peterson's wife came outside as soon as deputies arrived. Nocco said she had been battered and her husband refused to leave his home. Inside, he had a handgun and a semi-automatic rifle.

Just before 2 a.m., deputies said they decided to enter the home after Peterson refused to surrender. That's when bullets began to spray from the house and into the surrounding suburban neighborhood. As they entered the home, Sheriff's deputies exchanged fire with Peterson, Nocco said.

"The suspect tired to kill everybody that was outside that house," Nocco said. "This was a battle. An absolute gun battle."
