    MLB called a common sense voting law, racist towards black people.


    So they removed the All Star Game that would've given millions to a predominately black city.


    That'll show them

    This cancel culture is way out of hand.

    Who condones this?

    Who are the people who are happy over this decision?

    They put it in the bill so you can't give out water or food while people are in line?

    Liberal lie.

    You can't give out food or water to people in line if you are partisan and touting a certain candidate. Non-partisan poll workers can certainly do so.

    Doesn't that just mean a random person can't go down and give out food or water?

    Seems like a tough sell given those areas all vote the same way, so obviously gonna be partisan w/o saying or signaling it.

    Candidates or those representing candidates can't.

    There would be nothing wrong with the polling station having water available, for instance.

    What does representing candidates even mean?

    You're just someone that wants the Dems to win in Atlanta, you bring a bunch of water/food to the people standing in line, you have a preference as to who you want to win the election that isn't remotely official.

    That's the type of convoluted policy that the Dems would come up with. How do you even enforce that. Lines like 2 hours long sometimes in those areas.

    They couldn't just stick to the voter ID issue which has support w/ 3/4 of the populace?

    No. Supposedly not.

    And what does it matter anyway? You can mail in vote now. With an ID. Why stand in line when you are hungry and thirsty? ;)

    So if I wake up tomorrow deciding blanket amnesty for 25 million illegals is my new #1 goal and only way to achieve that is to encourage Dems to vote then go down to ATL to give out food/pizza/etc not sure there should be a law against that. Those lines are long as hell in major cities.

    Anyway, that minor detail aside, this is really the elephant in the room that the GOP really doesn't want to talk about

    Not everyone should be voting. I'm fine with mail-in starting like 3 weeks before election but a bigger window + ballot harvesting is ridiculou

    Didn't they vote for Trump? Too racist

    I think the perfect location would be Minneapolis, checks all the boxes, and security won't even get in the way of the people

    Not that Atlanta is up to host another Super Bowl as they just did in 2020 I would imagine they will be off the list to host another one for a very long time. Unless the legislation is changed they would probably be permanently excluded as a host city. Arthur Blank will not be happy about that.
