Clearly, which is why its the GOP at war with MLB, the NFL, the NBA, Coke, Delta...
The Mlb is going to take a hit big time.
The groups that are being pandered to ( blacks, femmy wokes , woke white boojey women ) don't watch baseball, but normals do.

Coke. Not sure. Because of the 69 % illegitimacy rate ,there is no mother and father to enforce healthy eating habits so those kids will keep drinking it no matter what.
Normals ,aka smart people ,don't drink it, so might not see a difference.

Delta. Will take a hit.

The bill itself is based on the fabrication that our elections are unsafe and voter fraud is a problem. The bill also includes provisions that will make what the one term mistake asked them to do in the phone call legal under Georgia law. Namely disenfranchising enough voters in blue counties to throw the election to Republicans. When corporations take a stand you need to listen or face the consequences. They are people too right?
Companies can boycott and companies can be boycotted. Do they want to play that game?

It isn’t a fabrication. Everyone knows it. Especially the crowd the defends it loudest.

Jan Paski had little trouble batting away the Fox talking point about Colorado’s election laws yesterday.

Sorry, but the GOP has been at this for twenty years.

You Trumpsters seem to be the only ones who are still peddling nonsense to the contrary.
Not a 'Trumpster', so fail there. It most certainly isn't 'nonsense'.
It most certainly is a fabrication. The entire Georgia election law fall out is based on the fabrication that it is like a 'Jim Crow law on steroids'. A blatant misrepresentation of the facts. This blatant misrepresentation of the facts dutifully parroted by the 'news' (political propaganda) media, hence your beliefs on this.

The left leaning Washington Post is pretty clear on Biden's assertions.

Washington Post Fact-Checkers Slam Biden for Georgia ...
https://www.nationalreview.com › news › wapo-fact-ch...

Mar 30, 2021 — The Washington Post fact-checking outfit awarded Biden its worst rating for his claim that a new Georgia election-security law “ends voting ...

No one believes you.
A reduction in the number of hours available for is not what the Georgia law forces or causes. That law increases the total number of hours available for voting.
Read the text of the law for yourself:

83 (5) The broad discretion allowed to local officials for advance voting dates and hours led
84 to significant variations across the state in total number of hours of advance voting,
85 depending on the county. More than 100 counties have never offered voting on Sunday
86 and many counties offered only a single day of weekend voting. Requiring two Saturday
87 voting days and two optional Sunday voting days will dramatically increase the total voting
88 hours for voters across the State of Georgia, and all electors in Georgia will have access
89 to multiple opportunities to vote in person on the weekend for the first time;
https://www.legis.ga.gov/api/legislation/document/20212022/201121

Don't care if you believe me or not. Believe what the text of the law states (and also notice those who have misled you on this).

Can't imagine the analysis where the MLB calculated it will benefit from boycotting Georgia.

Republicans aren’t half their customer base. Conservatism is a dead/dying ideology with no popular support, which is why the GOP has to increasingly resort to Jim Crow laws cause the multicultural coalition they’re afraid of is here.

GOP loves business in politics so long as it’s in the form of Mike Lindell, donations, or the military invading our sports with fanfare and promotion.

Forgotten how close the popular vote in the election was? Something like 75m to 80m? Yeah, right.

Democrats have forsaken the common working folk and have gone after big businesses. The GOP gain in minorities, including blacks, and common working folk last election is pretty clear.

Is there anything that you believe you know that isn't wrong?

President Biden is asked if he supports moving the Masters out of Georgia: "That's up to the Masters... It is reassuring to see for profit operations and businesses are speaking up about how these new Jim Crow laws are just antithetical to who we are."





Let's face it. President Doofus doesn't even know what Jim Crow laws are, but he really shouldn't just parrot what his handlers tell him to say.View attachment 67327121
Is that thread title supposed to be a play on "Thus Spake Zarathustra"?
Nice bit of irony. Thanks.

They know that right is on their side and the consequences of silence are obviously more dire. We cannot let the integrity of our elections to be tainted. We have developed our system over centuries of experience and we will never let partisanship interfere with the sanctity of the vote again. These changes will be moot when Congress passes the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act anyway. It is now our top priority.


In a backlash to 2020’s historic voter turnout, and under the pretense of responding to baseless and racist allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities, state lawmakers have introduced a startling number of bills to curb the vote. As of March 24, legislators have introduced 361 bills with restrictive provisions in 47 states. footnote1_brdor0b1That’s 108 more than the 253 restrictive bills tallied as of February 19, 2021 — a 43 percent increase in little more than a month.

These measures have begun to be enacted. Five restrictive bills have already been signed into law. footnote2_hdr6ng32 In addition, at least 55 restrictive bills in 24 states are moving through legislatures: 29 have passed at least one chamber, while another 26 have had some sort of committee action (e.g., a hearing, an amendment, or a committee vote).

Most restrictive bills take aim at absentee voting, while nearly a quarter seek stricter voter ID requirements. State lawmakers also aim to make voter registration harder, expand voter roll purges or adopt flawed practices that would risk improper purges, and cut back on early voting. The states that have seen the largest number of restrictive bills introduced are Texas (49 bills), Georgia (25 bills), and Arizona (23 bills). Bills are actively moving in the Texas and Arizona statehouses, and Georgia enacted an omnibus voter suppression bill last week.

That’s not close, that’s a landslide loss.

I dunno what you mean by “forsaken the common folk” as Biden’s American Rescue Plan has overwhelming bipartisan support from the American people, meanwhile the GOP is at war with multiple main stream American institutions over their attempts to keep Black people from voting.

YOu seem to just make up conditions that don’t exist in the world as a means to self-sooth.

Stop with the smokescreens. Votes won't matter when the Legislature takes over local boards and appoints Republican majorities to decide which votes will count. That is what the one term mistake wanted them to do and now it is legal.

Joe Biden is a Jim Crow Democrat. He first ran for the Senate as a racial segregationist, ie anti busing, claiming white and black children must not be in the same school or it would create "a racial jungle" while running in an extremely white state.

Joe Biden IS Jim Crow. That's why white corporate CEOs and billionaires wanted him, other than his promise to not raise taxes or otherwise interfere with billionaires. Atlanta is a racial jungle. So they attack it economically and politically.

The obvious reason is that in a democracy voting is a sacred right that must be protected. We spent too long suppressing the votes of minorities and we are not going back now.

LOL Biden promised to raise taxes on billionaires and that is what will happen. They don't care because they are still Americans unlike so many on the right.

The bottom line is....blacks are incapable of meeting the standards to vote. That is the message being sent out. ID is not oppressive.
Maybe that’s “the message” that the AM radio disc jockeys are selling you.

But the GOP has been playing games with Voter ID for years. Making some eligible, but others not.

For instance, in Texas, if you have a registered gun, your license works as a voter ID. But if you’re a resident with a student ID, that won’t count.

In other states, GOP legislators deliberately closed offices where legal ID’s could be obtained when they were close to minority neighborhoods.

And nearly all the voter supression efforts include closing polling stations in targeted areas. The Georgia law does that. And that’s after Brian Kemp has already done it when he was running voter caging operations and closing polling stations in an effort to keep the “wrong people“ from voting for Stacy Abrams.

There was no voter fraud in Georgia or any of the other states where the GOP is waging its efforts to hold onto power by picking its voters.

We’re not interested in the disingenous games being played by the right wing apologists for the obvious Jim Crow effort by the GOP.

The NFL survived the last right wing “boycott”. That’s all but forgotten.

If elections are so safe, why are the Dems wasting so much effort on HR1?
Huh? Huh? Huh?
Sorry. But that weak attempt at deflection doesn't work.
You want to defend the Georgia law, thereby making Biden look stupid for his criticism, point to the election fraud, or election cheating uncovered in Georgia that this law intends to remedy?

riiiiiiiight.

People like Gates, Bezos and Buffett aren't billionaiares becuase they're stupid.
They already pay lawyers and accountants a brazillion dollars to figure out how NOT to pay taxes.

They pretend to be on board with more taxation because it's on;ty a slight increase. They know damn well if they piss off the moron socialist crowd, they will call for way more.
They know the moron socialist crowd( AOC, Warren,Beto, Sanders...) are dangerously gaining ground in the Dem party.
