Georgia lawmakers passed an amendment that would strip Delta Airlines of a tax break on jet fuel after the company publicly excoriated the state’s newly enacted election integrity law. Republicans in the Georgia House of Representatives narrowly passed an amendment that would revoke the tax break, costing the Atlanta-based Delta tens of millions of dollars per year, according to Forbes.

Ideally, governments shouldn't be giving or revoking these kind of tax breaks. Yes, I know In living in a fantasy world.

Go woke, go broke. Does he realize everyone of his employees has to show theirID and more to get hired. Some may have to undergo periodic drug screening. You need ID to get a boarding pass and to get through TSA. He should get fired

I doubt this will pass in to law. It has to pass in the Senate and then Kemp has to sign it. The GA Senate has shown a complete lack of backbone on tough issues and Kemp is a worm. So don't celebrate yet, two big hurdles.

Who are those pusillanimous chicken poop lawmakers who "are reportedly less interested in punishing Delta"? No wonder GA went belly up. The Delta CEO was very clear. The new GA law is "unacceptable." CEO Ed Bastian should be more than ready to put his money where his big mouth is, which here means giving up the tax break. Compare it to returning a campaign donation from an offensive donor. Delta can decide here to go from there, literally. They probably shouldn't fly anywhere that has similar, "unacceptable" laws.

I'm not a fan of political blackmail like this; but if the Dems are going to call that play over and over (e.g. MLB moving the all-star game because of the election integrity law, NBA moving their all-star game from Charlotte over North Carolina's defense-of-marriage act several years ago), at some point they need to be given a taste of their own medicine.

Years ago, South Africa’s Pilanesberg Park had big trouble. Tons of it. Someone went on a killing spree of its prized white rhinos. Thirty-nine of the 5-ton ungulates were mysteriously turning up dead around the park. That was 10 percent of the park’s endangered rhino population. The killers had to be stopped, so park rangers turned into homicide detectives. Who did it? Poachers, perhaps? No. It couldn’t have been. The dead rhinos didn’t have bullet holes, and their horns were still intact. Who, then? ..., rangers found their killers: gangs of teen male elephants

To those old and longstanding fantasies, they’ve added a couple of new ones: a world in which they can sow discord and division and reap acceptance and unity, and a world where the lies they tell will be trusted as the truth.

It was announced yesterday that Gal Gadot, an Israeli actress best known for her titular role in 2017’s live-action Wonder Woman film, is set to portray Cleopatra in an upcoming biopic of the same name. Its director is Patty Jenkins, who had previously worked with Gadot on Wonder Woman. The announcement of her casting was met with fury and consternation, both from self-styled “progressives” and from large segments of the Arab and Muslim community. Before long, the internet was flush with denunciations of Gal Gadot for her alleged “whitewashing” of “Arab” roles, and of the film industry itself for casting her as Cleopatra in the first place.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said at a Politico Playbook event Thursday that Biden has asked Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to figure out if the president has the legal authority to wipe out their balances. On the campaign trail he said he wanted to wipe away $10,000 per borrower, but prominent Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have pressed him to pursue $50,000 in debt relief per student.

Cities such as Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland, Ore., and Austin, Texas, have shifted funds from police departments to social services programs. Such cuts have led some departments to lay off officers, cancel recruiting classes or retreat from hiring goals.
