  1. Its time for corporation to stand up for the United States citizen, they can’t do it alone. Thank you.

    1. No coke n my frig, and I wouldn’t let my dog fly on a delta flight, what once was wrong is now right and now you gotta be ashamed if your skin is white. Somebody write a song about common sense going to the wayside in America!

    2. Nah, I think corporations should look out for the financial interest of their shareholders but recognizing from where do their profits come. Side note – does anyone think that globally people would which to Pepsi over voting. This what CEO salary is about.

  2. Her first point was excellent . They really used the economy as a reason to open. Now every corporation will leave

    1. So many corporations have fled California and yet you don’t see MSNBC highlighting how California needs to change direction in their political actions.

    2. @Michael Morningstar Yes, Joe Biden said this is “Jim Crow on steroids.” And you just blindly believe the words of a rich elderly white man who has a long history of racism himself? Remember when Joe Biden said during the campaign to a black man that if he doesn’t vote for Biden then “he ain’t black”? I read through these msnbc comment sections and no one actually says anything meaningful, just “that’s racism!” without any indication they have any actual knowledge of what the legislation is, what the situation was in the elections, what actual racism is, what actually happened in the Jim Crow days.

    3. @Kenneth Heern so those proud boys with their blue lives matter flags who literally killed a cop are what? Those wannabe soldiers who you couldn’t pay to enlist but carry ar15 to protect freedom lol . Never seen a soldier walk outside in full combat gear and run in the capitol yet some cod trump fanboys are “patriots”

  3. Atlanta had enough challenges without adding in the Georgia Governor’s SELF SERVING STUPIDITY.
    We are praying for your well being Atlanta! Atlanta…You have tremendous courage!

    1. @FENTENAYL FLOYD Another racist troll? (Account only a day old. His previous accounts must have been banned for racist threats.) Let me guess, he’s going to claim to be the least racist person on here while defending his trash post. Seriously, only children use all caps, so let’s see how this new troll will do under pressure.

      Come on kid, show us your wit. Tell us how you’re not racist while denigrating a whole race. Square that logic pretzel.

    2. @FENTENAYL FLOYD  You may need to get your _Racist Insult Game_ on point. Consult your local KKK family & friends. You can do better than THIS .
      *Stay healthy but DOUBLE UP on the **_Fentanilo,_** CletusKaren!*

    3. @Chewie Knievel Saying that George Floyd died on opoids is not racist, thats just what happaned.

    4. @Solstice of Snow, you obviously didn’t see his post. That wasn’t the worst part, not by a long shot. But don’t you have a secret Q meeting to get to? I mean you need to discuss the legitimacy of killing people on prescription drugs. (If everyone on prescription pain killers was dangerous we should be going after soccer moms. Sorry, not an excuse. He needed rehab, not a public execution.) He wasn’t fighting back and never presented a danger. Is that your defense? Any black person is fair game if they are high? Are you?

      Why do conspiracy nut-jobs always come up with illogical arguments that wouldn’t fool a kid? Oh wait! I just answered my own question. You’re Crazy!

  4. Businesses may hurt for a while, but they will hurt even more if the very foundation of democracy is destroyed.

    1. Nice contents you put up always.BTChits a new bullish price as people increased their bids in hopes of making huge gain from the rise but as we can all see now the market is very unstable , the truth is that you can always make more profit from tradln rather than just hodlin and waiting for the price of BTC to skyrocket . Indeed its a tough decision for both old and newb!es whose intensions are just to hodl and sell but rather the potentials of tradln. I wept deeply and prayed after the last time i had much loses, my Uncle introduced me to Garric Norman who i started tradln with since late last year, i’ve covered up and made over 11B T С with 2.7B T C even with the ups and downs since the journey With Garric counsel I no longer have to worry about the rise and dip ofBitcoin. For prof!table tradlng guidiance, You can easily get to him on ͲҽӀ ҽցɾąʍ @garric_norman_fxt cheers.

    2. If you don’t have to have an ID to vote how do you make sure everybody that votes is a legal American citizen?

    3. @wcjcnc State issued ID’s DO NOT prove citizenship. Non-citizens here legally are allowed to obtain them.

    4. @John Woods So why would anybody be against having an ID to vote. It could be used to make sure the same person doesn’t vote 50 times.

    1. He’s been firing all the decent people he can, and attacking the ones he can’t. He’s got the whole state torn up like ATV’s in a meadow.

    1. @Mike A weren’t you one of the insurrection fools begging for forgiveness and blaming your treasonous act on Trump? Pride Boi

    2. Do you have any idea how many people are hired temporarily or get many more wage hours during the Masters? Why would you want to deprive people of income and a lucrative venue? Harming many to get an anticipated end result is not an acceptable tactic.

    3. @Earl Larson The fact that you think folks are too dumb to get an id is 1000000x worse than asking for id

    4. @Ray Cann there was a 1981 film, ‘Polyester’ and it featured a technological wonder called ‘ODORAMA’ which means moviegoers received a numbered scratch-n-sniff card, with a warning not scratch until they were prompted.

      A number would pop-up on the movie screen to tell viewers which scent to scratch-n-sniff and that scent would correspond to what was happening in the movie 

      …Spoiler Alert.. 2 of the scents were Roses and Flatulence

    1. He’s living in the present – Republicans who want to get elected w/o much of the vote – cause they have been disenfranchised.

    2. @LJ Dude, they’re disenfranchising THEMSELVES. They’re the only ones taking the right to vote away from people.

    3. @LJ No. They have not been disenfranchised. They have shown america their true colors. They have openly displayed their racism and hate. The Republican party is dead.

  5. It took a while to pile up the backlash from American consumers who hate the voter suppression bills nationwide. These “business leaders” are not courageous people. They need to know they are speaking for the masses, rather than themselves. Now they are speaking for the masses but only for as long as they feel the pressure. Don’t let up!

    1. @SteveKY Sorry but the racists are winning across the nation. The white supremacists are winning. But what you have failed to realize yet is those who call themselves “anti-racist” are the actual racists and they are the ones turning this nation more and more racist.

    2. @rob gpm
      Yeah, that’s not going to happen, because it’s only Trumpublicans not Republicans who don’t want to allow all Americans an equal right to vote their voice. You trumpers continue to think you speak for all the American people, but you’re a minority sized group! And especially after January 6th when many disgusted and disenchanted Republicans changed to Independents, because they don’t agree with dismantling the U.S. Constitution, voter suppression, conspiracy theories, QAnon or electing fake power whoring politicians to win elections!!!

    3. @A H
      Troll, just go and play in Russian traffic like a good lil skin head, because your lies don’t work here! God, you people need to realize we’re not stupid!!! Keep your hate in the Kremlin where it belongs!

  6. Thirty Fortune 500 Atlanta based companies are facing the threat of an economic boycott. They’re paying attention because they get it that consumers will not be paying for their products. The people win when those in power are made to feel the impact of our values. There’s no better place to make an impact than their bank accounts.

  7. They do not care how this affects those things. They only care about legislative control. It does not matter to them how they get it.

  8. Shut Georgia down. Lets see the list of companys again. Dying for a coke, But I will not be moved.

    1. @sk8queen DO NOT GO THERE….ALL THESE MAGA NAZI …..ARE TALKING ABOUT “ID’S”
      THESE MAGGETS KNOW IT IS A GOP JIM CROW LAW….

    2. @Ernie Simms what does racism have to do with getting an ID?!?!?!?!? If anything, it shows YOURE the racistfor thinking POC arent capable of doing such a basic task. You people live in such a bubble

    3. @sk8queen like what? What is so bad that everyone is so outraged about? What racism’s should i be aware of?

    1. @Lee Spoon the drop boxes were created because of covid 19, prior to we dint use drop boxes and now the democrats are trying to keep them like its something we always had and thats not true. We tried to make it easier for people to vote because of the pandemic,

    2. Nice contents you put up always.BTChits a new bullish price as people increased their bids in hopes of making huge gain from the rise but as we can all see now the market is very unstable , the truth is that you can always make more profit from tradln rather than just hodlin and waiting for the price of BTC to skyrocket .

  9. What about film industry in Georgia, when are they pulling out? They need to stop all filming right this minute and pull out of Georgia NOW!

    1. They are not pulling out and neither is Major league baseball. They will still play all year and the Braves will not be affected at all..it’s all symbolism..Coke or Delta will change the good old boy network? Good luck. The photo of the Bill being signed into law..all white guys.
      Things can only go a few ways..Dems will keep saying that a picture I’D is harder to get than a Masters degree from Havard for anybody black. Republicans will keep saying why is a picture I’D,what you need to drive,cash a check,go to the airport,get into most government buildings,VA, town hall events,hospitals,lots of school systems..requiring a picture I’D..or the Democrats can mobilize,not break the law and get mobile services to affected communities and get philanthropy orgs getting people the identification they desperately need..even listening to Democrats say how hard everything is makes the Republicans win the debate wo trying..soon,they will rename the parties..the party that has iID and can ride the bus on election days and the other party in pajamas marveling at all those smart rich people who figured it out..

    2. @A T
      Then how would California pay for the welfare in your state? California has the WORLD’S 5th largest economy. Sorry to disappoint you, but California under Brown balanced the state budget. It’s states like Kansas and Oklahoma that are insolvent.

    1. What lie? Oh trump! There’s still people out there that believe in him? That’s sad. Write him a letter once he’s in jail. I’m sure he’ll read it it

    2. @Shednut it lowers the number of polling places in Fulton county in half for starters. IDs take drivers license and passport. Passports start at over $100 and there are some older voters that have never owned a car! Your turn!

  10. May all the Fortune 500 companies follow suit. Money talks go Keisha, go Atlanta, fight Georgia Bulldogs, fight! Americans and our democracy owe you tremendous gratitude for bearing the weight to save our constitutional rights and democracy for all Godspeed

    1. @David Galehouse read the bill if you are literate. It addresses your question. Do your own research.

  11. That GA governor is something else. He only represents a small portion of his state, and that’s pathetic. You’ve got this Georgia!!

  12. It may hurt the People for a short time. The bill over all will do much more harm to them more to allow it to stand!
