That’s ONE. There are something like 200 more being worked on by the rest of the J. Crow lookalikes.
Major League Baseball made a PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESS DECISION and, boo hoo, Big Government TrumpubliQan politicians think THEY should get a veto on PRIVATE BUSINESS DECISIONS, led by commie-in-chief Mitch McMoscow, who now whines that business should stay out of politics.
This after McMoscow has spent his whole adult life begging for money from corporate donors and who even was a lead plaintiff in one of the lawsuits to overturn the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform.
So Major League Baseball joins the other PRIVATE SECTOR FOR-PROFIT CORPORATIONS whose BUSINESS “FREEDOM” TrumpubliQans want to CANCEL: Dr Seuss Enterprises (for discontinuing new publication of fewer than 10% of its oldest, slow-selling titles), Hasbro (over the gender of a plastic potato), Warner Brothers (Looney Tunes not including one of its characters, Pepe LePew, in a cartoon).
Jim Crow, a very FOUL ball, indeed!
Mitch clarified that he still wants corporations to make political donations. But they should still stay out of politics. I wonder how that one will work out for him.
Please knock it out of the park!
One All-Star game. Not the World Series. not the football championship, just one game . That should be a flyswatter, not a bat.
Based on how many repug owned states there are planning similar or worse voter suppression laws, MLB is going to have a hard time finding places to play if they stay consistent in their objections.
Now show the version with golf.
Is that not a protected species in Georgia.. gonna get the game wardens involved
You’d think by now we’d be more enlightened here in the States.
PLEASE don’t just take that pitch.
Take that, racist Georgia republicans, no one wants to play your game.
The republican vote suppression laws are not because of voter fraud, they are because of a large voter turnout that the anti democracy republicans fear.
Moscow Mitch is delusional if he thinks that Congress could possibly pass “serious consequences” for corporations who oppose objectively evil voter suppression laws. Of course, Moscow Mitch has taken millions of “light” and (very probably) millions more in “dark” money from corporations. Also from Russian oligarchs. Also from his wife’s family’s criminal enterprises.
I was hoping the game would be moved to Kansas City. We have the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (which is well worth a trip from pretty much anywhere on Planet Earth) here in town, and that would seem to indicate a huge opportunity for synergy. Problem is, the reactionary imbeciles in the Missouri legislature are themselves trying to pass blatantly dishonest voter suppression laws, even though their last couple of attempts were (quite rightly) tossed out by the courts. What they mean by “voter fraud” is, of course, votes they disagree with. Quite literally EVERY knowledgeable person is well aware that deliberate voter fraud is incredibly rare. Even the Seditionist Senators, Corrupt Cruz and Holys—t Hawley knew that the 2020 election was free, fair, honest, and legitimate.
The GOP is always throwing the illegal Jim Crow ball. Unfortunately, they almost always get it over the plate. The Jim Crow and their version of the slider – the sly liar. They never even consider a change up.
Typical QOP thinking problem. QOP went a swamp too far. Gimme your money and SHUT UP!
These are exactly the kind of issues the GOP loves-important, but a blessed distraction from even more important matters. Having no discernable policy, other than open-slather gun laws, no taxes for the rich and powerful, sanctioning of police violence and racism, these opportunities to chide their Big Business masters, on something as trivial as voting and human rights are too good to be true. And business will play along. Just as long as it doesn’t touch their money.
