    Yes!  Go MLB and Will Smith.  The loss of the revenue will effect the workers for a few months.  The loss of voting rights will effect workers for generations.
    You left out the 2 most critical problems:
    1.  Any citizen, group or organization can challenge the ballot(s) of anyone for no reason whatsoever.
    2. The newly formed Board of Elections, which no longer includes the elected Secretary of State, is the sole arbiter of any/all challenged ballots.  This is a 5 member board appointed by the Governor. 
    (If this had existed in January 2021, Trump would have “found” his votes.)
    Just watch, only democratic votes will be removed from the next election. How would you like it if I cancelled your vote because I don’t like or agree with you?

    1. Repeal Citizens United
    2. Stacy has been bought
    3. Boycott all Georgia corporations and events until voting rights are restored and the newly formed Board of Elections is disbanded.
    A partial list of Georgia-based companies:
    Aaron’s, Inc.
    AT&T Mobility
    Great American Cookies
    Home Depot
    Moe’s Southwest Grill
    Southern Company
    Sun Trust Banks
    Ted’s Montana Grill
    Turner Broadcasting
    Waffle House

    Btw, that tweet by Senator John Cornyn is is a “Q” dog whistle. Its being passed around in those weird alt-right circles that Biden is actually _NOT_ president but just a puppet and that Trump is _still_ president and all the actions done by Biden now are really at the direction of Trump. No joke, this is what the current narrative is for a lot of them. And so we have yet another sitting GOP congressmen tweeting conspiracy fodder.

    Gaetz’s friend asked him, “Why the long face, Matt?”. Gaetz, “It’s all this underage age sex stuff. I’m feeling really down”. “No Matt, why have you got such a massively long face, physically?”.

    Dear person of color. The democrats believe you do not have enough “on the ball” to get an ID with signature, between now and the next elections in some 20 months. THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT YOUR RACE AS IF YOU CANNOT GET AN ID, dumbing down the election , but of course, by “dumbing down” , they keep you in the Dermocratic plantation. I know you get it.

    DEAR Seth Meyers/ Remember FANG FANG with the rep who CONTINUES TO BE ON THE INTELLEGIENCE COMMITTEE , and Pelosi picked to be a manager in the Trump illegal, unconstitutional impeachment. So yes, that is how filfthy the Dems are! Sleeping with THE ENEMY, and still “in the most important committee in the land” But The Dems in Congress AND the Pelosi’s fellow manager , have stopped being talked about.

    Repugnant, Fox News, freaked out on Pres. Obama tweets saying “why is a President tweeting? This is ridiculous! what is this President doing tweeting.?” Now they are complaining that President BIDEN “doesn’t tweet enough” they had no complaints when stump lied, made stuff up and finally got removed from twitter. Gee repulsed, pick a thought and run with it!
