“Florida has become the escape hatch for those chafing under authoritarian, arbitrary and seemingly never-ending mandates and restrictions.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, in his State of the State address, during which he mocked COVID-19 restrictions

“First thing I’m going to do, we’ve already asked to preserve all those records. The answer could be very clear, why did the Democrats when they created January 6, pick and choose which Republicans can be on, disallowing never before in history individuals that I selected as minority leader? Why did the chair of this committee say the speaker is off-limits. Why did the speaker not allow the information from the sergeant of arms, that communication with the speaker?  They’re is two main questions you want on January 6. Why was the Capitol so ill-prepared that day, and how do we make sure it never happens again. You cannot answer any of those questions without getting that communication and we will get it, Sean, so we can get the answers.”

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, U.S. House Minority Leader, complaining about appointments to the January 6 Commission

“Many people witnessed people in their community dying from COVID and that made them think life can be short and you’d better live now rather than postpone until a later date.  That has helped Rolls-Royce.”

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce, explaining how the COVID-19 pandemic has been good for his company

Müller-Ötvös added, “It is very much due to Covid that the entire luxury business is booming worldwide.  People couldn’t travel a lot, they couldn’t invest a lot into luxury services … and there is quite a lot of money accumulated that is spent on luxury goods.”
