“You vill show me your papers. Yes! ”: Italians who refuse to present the coronavirus vaccine passport known as the “Green Pass” when required could face fines of as much as €1,000. Beginning on September 16 the state of Florida will start issuing a $5,000 fine to businesses, schools, and even government agencies that require people to show proof of having a coronavirus vaccine. Honolulu City employees who refuse to get vaccinated and are denied religious or medical exemptions could be fired or placed on leave without pay. Australians will download an app on their cellphone that features facial recognition and geolocation. The South Australian government will randomly contact the user to check if they are at their approved quarantine location. Users will have 15 minutes to take a photo of their face. If the quarantining individual fails to reply within 15 minutes, a police officer will be sent to “check” on the person
It’s about time: Including women in the draft seems like the kind of thing a nation being overwhelmed by foreign armies might do out of desperation, but House Democrats did just that on Thursday in the current defense appropriations bill.

She speaks: Mazie Hirono has become a “term limit” fan. Oh, not for senators or representatives, for Supreme Court Justice’s. She feels it’s time to limit the “lifetime” appointments. This from a woman that hasn’t done anything except be a politician since 1980. Save you the time, that’s 41 years. The bill, introduced by Reps. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), Don Beyer (D-Va.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) would create 18-year term limits for Supreme Court justices, though it would not apply to justices currently serving. All of this because of the Texas Abortion ruling’s. I notice not one person on the bill is from Texas.
Stupid headline: “Tourism Numbers Fall After Gov. Urges Visitors Not To Visit”. Well, yeah. That’s what happens.
New Zealand goes full retard: After a recent “unprovoked attack” on several people by a Sri Lankan with a knife, a NZ market chain has taken all the knives and scissors off the shelves. The attacker was previously known to security forces in New Zealand. How about instead hiding all the knives, how about we take the “known attackers” off the streets? Just saying.
