Yes, they love the free market as long as it performs to their whims and desires; if not, then their facisim come oozing out and in case it also includes racism - the white privilege snowflake daily double. Thank goodness the majority of youngsters don't harbor those views and those older duds who do, are aging out; America will continue to become a bastion or progressiveness and inclusivity.

From my beloved NYT -


For two weeks, Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola had been under pressure from activists and Black executives who wanted the companies to publicly oppose a new law in Georgia that makes it harder for people to vote. On Wednesday, six days after the law was passed, both companies stated their “crystal clear” opposition to it.

Now Republicans are mad at the companies for speaking out. Hours after the companies made their statements, Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, took aim at Ed Bastian, the chief executive of Delta, accusing him of spreading “the same false attacks being repeated by partisan activists.” And Republicans in the Georgia state legislature floated the idea of increasing taxes on Delta as retribution.

On Thursday, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida posted a video in which he called Delta and Coca-Cola “woke corporate hypocrites.” Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi said Coca-Cola was “caving to the ‘woke’ left.” And Stephen Miller, an adviser to former President Donald J. Trump, said on Twitter, “Unelected, multinational corporations are now openly attacking sovereign U.S. states & the right of their citizens to secure their own elections. This is a corporate ambush on Democracy.”

It was another illustration of just how fraught it is for big companies to wade in to partisan politics, where any support for the left draws the ire of the right, and vice versa.

Other big Georgia companies have managed to stay on the sidelines. UPS, which is based in Atlanta, also refrained from criticizing the new law before it was passed. On Thursday, the company said it “believes that voting laws and legislation should make it easier, not harder, for Americans to exercise their right to vote.” It made no mention of the law.

Cue those true economic patriots - the Old Fellers - or as I like to say, "Send in the clowns" -

Ironically, American Airlines requires an ID to fly, & Apple requires an Apple ID to use their phones.

Wait....black executives think they know what is best for black people? Not the lilywhite Trumper politicians? Hmm.

Funny. Hopefully Delta and Coke dont give money to that evil group of homophobes known as the Salvation Army. Now that would be an abomination. Good for Rubio by the way. I kind of like him for 2024, among others.

Both are for security purposes, craig. The tiny handful of voter fraud cases out of hundreds of millions of votes cast has been primarily sedition party voters. The GA law makes it easier to vote in rural areas and harder to vote in urban areas and easier for sedition party overseers to overturn local election board rulings and tabulations.

Not much to do with security. Everything to do with subverting the will of American voters.

I don't know what SA has to do with this issue, but you guys love to talk about homosexuality, transgender issues and gay marriage whenever you can. They are always at the forefront of your tiny minds.

Now that baseball season has started, I can break this out for CRG's insightful posts -

Really? Florida would be in the bag. Hispanic vote nationwide. Conservative bona fides. What am i missing?
A weather vane. Little. Weak. Choked like a dog in 2016. Went from telling us how awful Trump is (back when some R's told the truth) to shamelessly licking his boots.

He only looks good if the alternatives are gutless Mike Pence, Lyin' Cancun Ted Cruz, Lead Insurrectionist Josh Hawley, Matt Pedo Gaetz, Ditzy Noem or Qanoner MTG. Oh wait, I see your point.

He has no spine. I was one of the people who helped him win the MN Primary, but I wouldn’t do it again. He’s both too MAGA and yet not MAGA enough.

Rubio's is a scumbag. A Hispanic Mitt Romney. He's on the Senate Select Intel Committee (SSIC). The most corrupt committee in DC. Remember the SSIC was undermining Trump for four years straight. Specifically, they played a large role in promoting the Russia hoax. Mark Warner was caught texting with a Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, trying to get in touch with debunked dossier author Christopher Steele. Daniel Jones was the SSIC point man for Fusion GPS & continued to raise money to fund Fusion GPS's smear campaign against Trump even after resigning. The SSIC Security Director James Wolf got busted leaking the Carter Page FISA application to the NYT. There's no way you'll convince me Rubio was not part of this campaign, or at least aware of it. Also, we know factually that Rubio read both the Nunes & Schiff memo's, and knew Nunes was telling the truth & Schiff was lying because he'd seen the dossier & FISA applications, yet he stayed quiet & let that narrative play out against Trump. Rubio was also part of the same SSIC that released the SSIC Report that declared Russia had aided Trump by interfering in our elections after the Mueller investigation failed, as a way to keep the narrative going & impeach Trump. It's a hard pass for me on Marco Rubio & most MAGA people would feel the same.

More over, there's no voters in Florida that Rubio could bring, that Trump, or a Trump endorsed candidate doesn't already have.

Nationally, I don't believe Rubio has the juice to steal many Hispanic votes away from whoever the D's run.
