Right now in a Republican National Lawyers Association call, Gov. Brian Kemp says he and other republicans have been in "the fight of their lives" against "cancel culture" because of the 98 page voting law he signed.
The movement of the MLB game, he says, was “really a sad day for a baseball fine like myself that the great American pastime has gone political.” He says woke left culture is "punishing us for no reason.”
“This is not just Georgia’s fight, this is America’s fight.” Next, he said, it could be “your business” or “your ballgame” or “your way of life, if we don’t stand up” against the “woke mob.”
He says Coca Cola and Delta had no problems with the bill prior to being pressured by people outside of the state to "flip flop" their opinion. Blames Stacey Abrams for the MLB decision to move the state, and says he suspects she's skimming off the top and "lining [her] pockets."
“There’s people lyin’ to ya, and I’m not the one that’s doing that," he says.
He says HR1 would mandate Georgia have automatic voter registration (it would) and that people who lived in Georgia for "one day" could register (they really couldn't) and ignores that GEORGIA ALREADY HAS AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION.
Is it as expansive as HR 1? No, but it's stunning to see someone who was once secretary of state demonstrate such a lack of understanding as to what AVR is.

Alternatively, give the people that already live there jobs.
let the people who have never been to south texas flow into my mentions, talking about how they are all too stupid to have these jobs. mk.
Brownsville ranks among the top cities in the country for successfully educating Hispanic students and having those students graduate from college. There are six universities in the area, almost all of which award engineering degrees.

Well y’all, somehow I fit that gigantic Hoosier cabinet into my SUV. Shout out to Ledgestone Farms Antiques in Blanco Texas, where all of you should immediately go. They even gave me this blanket!
When I tell you almost all of my furniture in my house is a restored antique, believe me. And this is the best - the best - antique furniture store I’ve ever been to.
Also this clock is from a vintage store in Wimberly Texas that is LEGIT and has midcentury stuff out the wazoo. Creekside vintage. It is in fact, by the side of a lovely creek.

It truly boggles the mind that people are so angry that I pointed out actual problems in an 800 page bill that exist on probably 70 pages of that bill. The op Ed takes specific positions on the election administration provisions of the bill, and nothing else.
If it’s a bad thing to point out bad ideas and an 800 page bill that will be damned by those bad ideas, meaning that the good ideas on the bill will never go into place, then I think that’s pretty silly.
The current make up of the court is not going to be kind to a bill that has so many problems. If you want this bill to stick, then make it a really fucking good bill. It’s not a good bill right now. That doesn’t mean it can’t become a good bill or that all parts of it are bad.

lmao no i am not apologizing to an asshole on the internet who got famous because he let a squirrel run a go pro up a tree and things Donald Trump is right about voter fraud
And what might I apologize for? Having him say something rude to me and then jokingly responding to one of *my* followers sarcastically asking me to debate him? Debate him on what? Debates necessitate two people who know a lot about the same topic. he is a lawyer in canada.
His followers have been being like "ARE YOU SCARED TO DEBATE HIM?!" for now two days and *who* has that much time on their hands.
