Politics And Sports Meet Yet Again

Once again sport and politics meet.

The NAACP sent a letter to professional sports leagues asking them to urge upcoming free agents, players not to sign with Texas teams.

The letter came in response to Texas Governor Greg Abbott signing strict anti abortion and voting laws that many see as oppressive, draconian.

Professional leagues and the NCAA should do what’s right, take a stand against the abortion and voting laws. 

The leagues should pull events out of and not do business with Texas. 

The new abortion law would limit the amount of time a woman can get an abortion, up to 6 weeks after conception.

It would also create a bounty by allowing a person to sue the person who helped a woman get to an abortion.

The strict voting laws came after Republican losses in the 2020 presidential election.

Texas along with other GOP led states passed voting laws.

The laws restrict options how voters can cast their ballots.

Texas Republicans argue the voting laws would make elections more secure.

However many see the abortion and voting laws oppressive to voters and women and minorities.

Abortion was made legal by Roe vs. Wade in 1973.

Many Texans made their voices heard by voting in 2020. Many Texans voted absentee.

Republicans ought be ashamed of themselves.

What they’re doing is going against everything that America stands up for.

Voting is a right. Citizens want and deserve to be heard. 

By passing these laws, Republicans are proving they don’t give a damn about Texans.

The laws are restrictive, abusive, disgusting and dishonest.

We all want fair, honest elections.

 We all want to see our democracy thriving.

The opportunity to vote should be expanded, not restrictive.

One way to do that is by expanding the right to get an absentee ballot and voting opportunities, not restricting them.

The storms produced a record 6 - 7 inches of rain in 24 hrs.

Winds from the storms knocked out power to many.

Many basements and freeways were flooded, 1000 cars were abandoned on the highway, homes were damaged.

MLB Knocks It Out Of The Park Regarding All Star Game

What signifies America better than baseball and democracy.

This week the MLB stood up for democracy by deciding to move the 2021 All-Star game from Atlanta Georgia.

The decision came in response to  Republican Governor Brian Kemp signing voting laws that many see as oppressive, draconian.

Other leagues need to do what's right & follow the MLB's example when it comes to Georgias new voting laws.

The new laws would limit the amount of time a voter can get an absentee ballot, require an ID to get an absentee ballot, make it illegal for election officals to mail out absentee ballot applications, allow the GOP to suspend county election officals.

It's also would make it illegal for anybody to hand out water to voters who would waiting to vote in the hot Georgia sun to vote.

The laws came after Republican losses in the 2020 presidential election and in the January 2021 Georgia Senate races.

Georgia Republicans argue this would make elections more secure

However many see the laws  oppressive to voters. 

Many Georgians made their voices heard by voting absentee in 2020 and in the 2021 Georgia Senate Races.

Georgia Republicans ought be ashamed of themselves.

What they're doing is going against everything that America stands up for.

Voting is a right. Citizens want and deserve to be heard. 

By passing these laws, Republicans are proving they don't give a damn about the voters right to be heard.

The laws Republicans passed are restrictive, abusive, disgusting and dishonest.

We all want fair, honest elections.

 We all want to see democracy thriving.

The opportunity to vote should be expanded, not restrictive.

One way to do that is by expanding the right to get an absentee ballot, not restricting it.

Republicans Cry Foul Over Baseball Attendance Limits

The 2021 baseball season begins soon.

For the first time since the pandemic began, fans will br allowed at Comerica Park on opening day to root for the Tigers. 

Currently the limit allowed is 1,000 fans, but it may rise as the season opener gets closer or if restrictions are eased.

The capacity currently at Comerica Park's over 41,000 + fans.

The GOP led legislature wants the governor to increase the amount of fans allowed on opening day.

Here's what wrong with their GOP logic.

Isn't there a pandemic going on.

Aren't there mutantation of the virus?

I can understand how some want to get back to some sense of normalcy, but not right now.

Even with Michiganders getting vaccinated, there's a chance that the virus and the variants would spread.

Hopefully soon this virus could be over and we can get all back to rooting for the Tigers.
