Not caring is a false equivalence to being uninformed.

However it is the most likely explanation for your bitter pro-socialistic attitude.
Favorite team can't win a game to save their life because all the capitalistic teams take all the money and all that, therefore socialism is the only way to save the world.
The stuff your psychiatrist is telling you is the anti schizo meds is really just crack

Companies need to start thinking long and hard about moving to or expanding in some of these GOP run states.

These state governments are going to limit constitutional rights to their minority employees, restrict healthcare to their female employees and while they may offer good tax incentives they’ll set you up to publicly blackmail your company over them.

Add in the fact that these states under invest in critical infrastructure like power or education suddenly they just might not seem like a good deal.

Better to setup in states run by adults where you can attract talent, won’t be out of business for a week because it snowed a little and your tax situation isn’t threatened to score some political points with the un-American racist minority.

Not sure if you're aware of this or not but....


Yep, that showed us how much you don't care....you don't care so much that you posted in the two threads dedicated to this subject, that's how much you don't care.

Oh, and you returned just after midnight to show again how little you care by posting...again...in this exact thread on a subject you just said you don't care about. Funny, that, or you lie a tad. ;) We all know the truth on that.

You also don't care in states like Texas Republicans are removing drop boxes. Only your pea brain think this is just about the ASG.

Modern US conservatives love cancel culture, thrive on it, want to strangle the country to death with it. They just want it to be their cancel culture, where they boycott companies and people that advocate for civil rights, diversity and acceptance.

If any organization, sports, business, whatever, sides with anything democratic or non discriminatory then republicans will not care about those organizations and or businesses or what they do. They don't care if they leave, boycott, or whatever. Frankly, in Georgia if the MLB came out against Georgia's voting laws but remained in Georgia, republican controlled Georgia would probably pay the MLB to leave. You gotta to understand, under Trump and Trump republicans, and be honest they are all Trump republicans in all of those republican controlled states, you gotta understand that concerns over cutting their own throats or shooting themselves in the foot has become an acceptable price to pay. If it meant kissing trump's ass, they'd run the state into bankruptcy and not even flinch.

PS. And by the way, all of these republican controlled states act and are acting as if Donald Trump was still president and still ruling the show. It is like Donald Trump had never left. They know what Trump liked and did not like, policy wise... And they continue to do Donald Trump's bidding because they fully expect Donald Trump to return. They know that Donald will be taking notes of everything that happened while he was off-site, and they can't afford to screw it up now while the wait goes on.

Why are Republicans the only ones angry that we had record turnout at the polls?
More people vote they lose. On the Senate floor, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his opposition to a relatively uncontroversial measure that would make Election Day a federal holiday in order to make it easier for people to get to the polls. He called it a “power grab” that would help Democrats win elections.

Ironically there is no conclusive proof that it would unilaterally help Democrats that I'm aware of. He's just reflexively opposed to any change ever unless it suits his narrow goals and so spouts his usual bullshit.

If the Democrats want to "grab power" they should add DC as a state, float the cap on house seats, and prohibit partisan gerrymandering. Even all that wouldn't completely erase the R structural advantage because we're so out of whack.

Apparently the unindicted co-conspirator has called for a boycott of MLB.

It's nice to see that the leader of the pro-free market, anti-cancel culture party is responding to a corporation exercising its free market muscle by promoting its cancelation.

The one big 800 lb. orangutan problem the Repubs have since Reagan trickled down his way into their hearts is the one where they're trying so very hard to tear up and crap all over the Constitution and the Bill of Rights while still trying to appear to be the staunch patriotic defenders thereof.

It's not really a problem. The only people that need to be convinced by them are already willing to vote for them regardless of what they do, so they don't really have to try.

Baseball hasn't been relevant to America (minus, New York, Boston, and LA) since the lockout of 1994.
Who gives a care what MLB does?
I dunno, maybe all the small business owners that will now lose those millions in all star weekend economic injection because the state of GA fucking hates America?

I thought you cared about small businesses and freedom. I guess you don't?
