With Citizens United rulings, I wonder if the GOP can punish a Corp for its political views.

Coca Cola, MLB, UPS, etc.

You really need to get in front of this. More than any previous press releases you may have issued.

Sounds like any stimulus money Georgia was going to get should be to diverted to pay the Delta fuel tax.

Repubs reward their cronies and ass-kissers and punish anyone who speaks out against their policies, regardless of past support.

That seems infinitely sustainable; actually, not.

Wouldn’t Repubs figure out they’ll run out of abject followers eventually, since what they advocate and abhor can change by the minute?

OK, looks like war. Now it’s Delta’s move. Just tell Georgia to fuck off, you’re moving to another state, I’ll bet there are states that would love to have you.
