The Florida legislature (Republican controlled for a generation), enacted a sales tax "holiday" on Energy Star appliances below a certain price. Good.

But it included gas stoves regardless of price, in a typically performative, shoot us all in the foot, short-sighted, foolhardy, irresponsible, adolescent act of posturing on "wokeness" or any measure that these ignorant, intolerant, narrow-minded, asinine "legislators" deem as insufficiently worshipful to their blinkered notions of "freedom." (New York banned gas stoves in new buildings. This is Florida's reaction.)

"Florida. People are dying to live here!"

Really should be the state motto.
