The Friendly Skies
The bidnesses of The Gret Stet of Texas, America’s Lab for Bad Policy, seem to have learned from the bidnesses of Georgeduh and are trying to get ahead of the PR disaster coming their way via another Jim Crow extravaganza:
“American Airlines, which is based in Fort Worth, came out against restrictive voting measures that have a favorable path to reaching Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk in the coming weeks. Public opposition from the airline came after a package of sweeping elections changes cleared the GOP-controlled Senate and, notably, a day after some of Georgia’s most prominent corporate leaders came out publicly against a new election law after civil rights activists criticized their silence.
“Unlike in Georgia, the corporate criticism in Texas to the election bills comes before they have been signed into law. Corporate interests carry big clout in the Texas Capitol, but Abbott and other Republicans have given no indication of wavering in their pursuit of passing the measures before the session ends in May.”
And you thought Big Bidness couldn’t learn from their mistakes. American Airlines saw how Delta got dragged for not objecting before the fact and wanted that runway cleared.
