The President called for a boycott of the NFL. Gonna top that one? No? And that's got nothing to do with what's happening here anyway.

Shows just how beholden to lobbyists these so-called "representatives of the people" actually are. Pretty sad that everything has turned into partisan politics these days, almost as if it's a concerted effort on the part of both parties to have everyone prejudiced against those who hold a different opinion.


it's all about funding

the NRA doesn't spend money on the Dem's so they attack them. Not attacking big pharma at all..

I'm certain that all manner of untoward things are occurring behind closed doors at any given time. The fact that it's happening out in the open is what's shocking — the brazenness — and what it implies about the state politics.


I would agree actually.

Would we prefer to going back to being in the dark? Curious path, this.

The dems have been calling for boycotts of businesses that sell guns or even associate with the NRA and now you have a problem with partisan politics hurting businesses?


What?

Do you honestly not see the difference between people calling for a boycott (which happens just as often on the Right) and an elected official threatening to retaliate against a company on behalf of a political lobbying organization if the company doesn't give the lobbying org's members discounted services?

Tell me that you can see how those are vastly different.


Pretty sure the sheriff of Broward County is an elected official were you all bent out of shape when he called for boycotts?

Yet according to this source the CEO of Delta contributed money to more Republican politicians than Democratic ones in 2016.

Not sure how you can say this is an attack on Republicans when the CEO seems to lean more toward Republicans (2:1) when it comes to political contributions.

I didn't call for any boycotts. Do you just randomly say things and hope they're true? The tweet wasn't a "direct result of" any boycotts either, it was the result of Cagle being a corrupt politician who is abusing his power in retaliation for Delta discontinuing discounts for NRA members.

The Dems just propped up a sanctuary state skirting federal laws and robbing tax payers to pay for illegals. At the same time Chicago Dems are passing laws to literally make it easy for illegals to vote in our elections after spending millions investigating “Russian interference” and can’t show proof. So excuse me if I say cry me a river you damn SJW’s. You can taste the hypocrisy in the air it’s so thick.

So a crazy kid shoots up a school.. you guys go nuts and start screaming about guns,. Dems everywhere calling for boycotts of businesses.

businesses actually start to lose money and worry so they say "fine we will go along with your boycott and boycott them too.

Then a republican says well if your gonna do that then I am gonna try and do this .

And somehow in your twisted mind you make the republicans out to be the ones telling businesses what to do.

Cant make this @#@# up.

The GOP getting involved in telling a capitalistic free enterprise corporation how to run their business. Maybe they should just make it a state run airline.

And here all this time I thought they were for deregulation, lower taxes and less government involvement. guess not...


You mean like this?

www.washingtonexaminer.com...

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned businesses on Thursday to keep quiet when talking to federal immigration authorities or face legal ramifications.

Why is the removal of a tax break unconstitutional?

Your the first person from the right on this thread that understands what this is really about.
First one to give a real example of the left doing the same thing instead of just ad hominems or deflections.

star for you sir.

I like the nra, and find the recent attacks against them to be absurd.

However, I agree with the op. Out government should not be in the business of deciding tax law or any others based on rather or not a company is giving discounts to certain groups.

I don't care if both sides are hypocrotical, in this instance the republicans in Georgia are wrong.

also makes you wonder if they were getting that tax break because of their support for the NRA... the state of Georgia was happy to give them a break just as long as they greased members of X YZ in return... i Wonder what else is going on behind closed doors..

On Saturday, Delta Airlines announced that it was ending its contract for discounted rates with the NRA. And now Georgia's Lt. Governor, Casey Cagle, is publicly threatening to take legislative action against Delta.






all I want to point to in the op is just what the LT. Governor tweeted...

read it... it gives the motive of the action in plain simple words....
those who "attack" conservatives can expect to be retaliated against... period...

so we all better be nice to the conservatives, in the way we interact with them or do business with them, heck give them extra perks if possible, or we can expect holy hell to rain down upon us from the governmental powers above!!!

of course, this has been happening in past administrations but never with such blatant arrogance. it's been more of a matter of supporting those industries and groups that advance the values of the political parties while forcing those who don't to go through a mild drought. companies and industries rose and fell depending on weather the power was blue or red, but it was more industry specific, not company specific..
but, there's something people should think about... all of those companies, not just the ones that are inclined to you political views, add to our economy, are needed by the economy, by the people they employ, by the businesses those employees spend their cash on. can't help but wonder, would our economy be a tad bit stronger if we managed to direct the tax funds in a more reasonable fashion instead of having political leanings dictating so much?
but it appears we've gone beyond this point now.. not it's closer to political blackmail or something. very blatant, very much out in the open for all to see. so sure of themselves that all they give back it seems is a what are ya gonna do about it or a finger pointed at the previous administration with a what about them bit...

ya, obama made a law that everyone should get insurance, his bad... but ya know what, he did have one thing right, the insurance industry doesn't work too well if only the sickest among us pay to have the insurance. and, I still say it was all just another bail out to save another industry from the repercussions of the bankers debacle that crashed the economy in the bush era... and, it wasn't like he was promoting the insurance companies according to weather they had liberal or conservative leanings and giving the subsidy to just those on one side. and he certainly didn't come right out and say that unless your insurance company had ties with this liberal group or that liberal group, you wouldn't get to play in his gov't subsidized insurance market!
IT'S A HORSE OF A DIFFERENT COLOR. heck it's so different maybe it's a zebra instead!!!

what you conservatives need to be thinking about it this....
sooner or later (and the way things are going my guess would be much sooner than you expect), the liberals will be back in control. and well, ya know, whatever you can do, we can do better!!! are you really gonna like the idea of handing this kind of weapon over to liberal administrations, on the federal or state level, when the wind changes direction???
this is wrong!! admit it, condemn it... or accept the fact that you will have to live with this type of coercive corruption, when it is used against you and yours!!!
