Georgia isn’t quite as peachy as usual. by The Elephant's Child

The 2020 election in the state of Georgia was very controversial as many questions came up about the integrity of the vote. There were concerns that ballots were scanned multiple times, mysterious suitcases full of ballots being counted after GOP observers had left. That sort of thing. Absentee and mail in ballots were counted in spite of lack of identification requirements. 1.3 million voters in Georgia mailed in absentee ballots in the 2020 election. There was understandably a long delay in election results being certified.

U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor-Greene said the reforms were essential because too many absentee ballots were “mailed in without verification. She said you have to show an I.D. to buy alcohol, to buy tobacco, to show and have a driver’s license to drive. President Joe Biden promptly labeled the bill “Jim Crow in the 21st Century, and claimed it was an atrocity. ( having to show ID? ) and said the Justice Department was “taking a look as well.

Naturally, Major League Baseball is going to remove their tournament, movie people will just not film their movies in Georgia, but in China instead. Delta Airlines made a stink until the Assembly mentioned reducing their discount on aviation gasoline. There was lots more childish behavior, but I was struck by the ignorance and the refusal to be bothered with studying up slightly to find out what they were talking about. That seems to be the nature of flaps or protests these days, and it’s more than a bit frightening to discover just how our nation is being run.
