Donald Trump Jr. has some advice for the Republican Party as another major league sports organization sprints onto the political field of play: “Grow some balls.” The Republican’s blunt statement comes in the wake of Major League Baseball’s decision to pull the 2021 All-Star Game and draft out of Atlanta in response to Georgia’s newly passed election legislation. Republicans in Congress should immediately move to repeal the @MLB’s anti-trust exemption,” former President Trump’s son wrote Friday. “Grow some balls and fight fire with fire.” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred sided with liberal politicians who claim SB 202 is an unconscionable erosion of voting rights


That'll be the day.

I sure hope that the stadium in Atlanta that was going to host the game sues the MLB for many, many millions of dollars for breach of contract!!!!

Why would MLB agree to a "shakedown"??? Voter Integrity legislature is to allow all LEGAL persons to vote, by eliminating fraud and breaking existing laws which each STATE may legislate.... Let them play ball, and leave politics OUT of our National Pastime!

Flash! MLB, following the NBA’s China gambit, to fund campaign awakening baseball in the Peoples’ Democracy. Will support excursions of a million Chinese to America to view the People’s Pastime. Some of these may return to China.

My 89 y.o. mother loves the MN Twins. However, she can no longer watch them. They are not broadcast over the air. Fox Sports North has ended its broadcasting on all platforms except ATT (which costs minimum of $80/mo) and Comcast ($100+/mo). You can subscribe to MLB directly, but you cannot watch a live game. You cannot listen to it on your internet speaker device because MLB owns "exclusive" rights. The MLB is all about making money and doesn't care about its fans. Indeed, it is a big corporate monopoly that should be broken up or dissolved. What a shame!

I would recommend a more productive approach, and that would be to send every CEO a copy of the integrity law and ask them to advise what part they find offensive. Deliver it by return receipt, and request a formal reply in writing. Maybe ask Board of Directors too. Then, ask if they'd prefer ballots mailed out to dead people, or those who've moved? That a chain of custody for ballot boxes be established to ensure no one, from any side of the political aisle, has the opportunity to disenfranchise anyone else's vote. We have rules, and all of those corporations follow SEC, FCC, and a host of other rules. Do they think they should just be able to not follow them, change them at the last minute?

MLB isn't worth it anymore. I'm better off going to a minor league game. The product is better (the kids are hungry and will do anything to get to the Show or the majors), it's cheaper and it's a more family friendly environment. Go Woke, Go Broke.

A Manhattan 7-Eleven worker became the city’s latest suspected victim of an anti-Asian crime—with his attacker spewing, “You Chinese motherf—er!” as he punched him, police said Sunday. The 26-year-old Asian victim was working at the Manhattan convenience store shortly before 6 a.m. Saturday when his attacker stormed in without a mask and yelled the racial slur and slugged him, cops said. Cops said the victim, who suffered a cut under his left eye, had previously confronted the suspect after he allegedly tried to steal merchandise. Police said initially the assault was not being classified as a hate crime

A 'time limit' of less than a year could be imposed on the vaccine passport scheme to head off a Tory revolt on the issue, the Mail can reveal. Boris Johnson will give the green light on Monday to the development of a system of 'vaccine certification' as he looks to reinvigorate the economy. Ministers believe the scheme may be essential in reopening venues such as theatres and stadiums which rely on large crowds.

WASHINGTON — As President Joe Biden preaches patience but acts with urgency, his vision of the powers of the Oval Office is quickly taking shape, modeled after Democratic predecessors who dramatically expanded the reach of government to confront generational crises. In a recent meeting with historians and in private conversations with advisers, Biden looked to the examples set by Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson as he aims to use the levers of executive authority to create opportunities and break down barriers. Unlike Roosevelt and Johnson, who enjoyed formidable Democratic majorities in Congress, Biden has had to operate with a no-margin-for-error edge in fiercely partisan Washington.CORRECTION*

WASHINGTON — If America is dominated by car culture and the call of the open road, there is a big reason for that: Over the past 65 years, the United States has spent nearly $10 trillion in public funds on highways and roads and just one-quarter of that on subways, buses and passenger rail. But President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, unveiled this week, represents one of the most ambitious efforts yet to challenge the centrality of the automobile in American life, by proposing to tilt federal spending far more toward public transportation and coax more people out of

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is warning that the national debt –– now estimated to total $85,210 per person –– poses an imminent threat, especially if interest rates spike. The U.S. government has spent around $6 trillion during the coronavirus pandemic, in addition to regular government appropriations. The $6 trillion figure does not count the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan that President Biden signed a few weeks ago. The deficit set a record in FY2020 at $3.13 trillion. And the national debt has hit a record $28 trillion.
