Nice try Poppaj.
That’s actually a “progressive” interpretation of Franklin’s famous quote which has been pushed by a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, one of the most far-left think tanks in the country.

Gotta hand it to the Libs — always trying to twist people’s words and re-write history to suit their narrative.
So sad that public health issues have become perversely partisan. This is not the forum for that kind of hit take it to the lounge >>>>>>>>>>>

“There will be warrants issued for arrest,” Sheriff Adkinson said.


Adkinson provided the public with two non-emergency office telephone numbers — (850) 892-8186 and (850) 892-1111 — to call to report potential violations of the short-term vacation rental ban.

At Publix at Carillon this morning, it's clear there are renters here. Saw one couple loading groceries into their car (TX plates), along with newly purchased beach chairs and boogie boards; that's just one example of many. Also, does anyone know why Rosemary Beach is allowing vacation rentals to be booked on their website? There is no mention of a vacation rental ban at all.

I was not attempting to be political. You went there so now we await your placing the quote into the context as written by Franklin and providing your analysis. :popcorn:
Bring it to the lounge.

You're right, I just went to look at Rosemary's site and was able to look at a few rentals where you can see dates booked in near future on their calendars. They are also running specials for vacations "leaving before May 23".

Looks like fun. The good old days when I used to drive around finding tax evaders.

Out of state plates and the purchase of beach crap does not mean the are renting.

I call BS. These owners are telling people to say that so they dont get kicked out and the owners dont have to refund $. But hey...at least the WCSO tried. If the owner says they are "not renting" not much else he can do. It will be interesting to see how the TDC handles things when they get wind of taxes not being paid on these "not rentals". But I still think they should be made to leave since he only thinks residents/owners should be here.
If they aren’t renting then there isn’t any tax to be collected. Lots of owners, family, etc here NOT renting but bringing in much needed $ into the community. And people can rent for 30+ days pretty cheaply these days which are allowed. We don’t need local busy bodies tattle tailing on people when they don’t actually know the facts.
