    To the one who has lost their first love(Jesus Christ), he is calling you back to himself today. You drifted away from him however be it that it happened, but today he says "come back". Maybe it's been a long time or you think he won't forgive you for something you're done, but he will. God bless you.🙏

    Every time Republicans lose an election their answer to their problem is to make it harder to vote. They don't even think about how to get the voters back on their side.

    Say: O People of the Scripture! Do ye blame us for aught else than that we believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed aforetime, and because most of you are evil-livers ?


    Shall I tell thee of a worse (case) than theirs for retribution with Allah ? (Worse is the case of him) whom Allah hath cursed, him on whom His wrath hath fallen and of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine, and who serveth idols. Such are in worse plight and further astray from the plain road.


    When they come unto you (Muslims), they say: We believe; but they came in unbelief and they went out in the same; and Allah knoweth best what they were hiding.


    And thou seest many of them vying one with another in sin and transgression and their devouring of illicit gain. Verily evil is what they do.


    Why do not the rabbis and the priests forbid their evil-speaking and their devouring of illicit gain ? Verily evil is their handiwork.


    The Jews say: Allah’s hand is fettered. Their hands are fettered and they are accursed for saying so. Nay, but both His hands are spread out wide in bounty. He bestoweth as He will. That which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them, and We have cast among them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection. As often as they light a fire for war, Allah extinguisheth it. Their effort is for corruption in the land, and Allah loveth not corrupters.


    If only the People of the Scripture would believe and ward off (evil), surely We should remit their sins from them and surely We should bring them into Gardens of Delight.


    If they had observed the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto them from their Lord, they would surely have been nourished from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them there are people who are moderate, but many of them are of evil conduct.


    O Messenger! Make known that which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord, for if thou do it not, thou wilt not have conveyed His message. Allah will protect thee from mankind. Lo! Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk.


    Say O People of the Scripture! Ye have naught (of guidance) till ye observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto you from your Lord. That which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) from thy Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them. But grieve not for the disbelieving folk.


    Lo! those who believe, and those who are Jews, and Sabaeans, and Christians – Whosoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right – there shall no fear come upon them neiither shall they grieve.


    We made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We sent unto them messengers. As often as a messenger came unto them with that which their souls desired not (they became rebellious). Some (of them) they denied and some they slew.


    They thought no harm would come of it, so they were wilfully blind and deaf. And afterward Allah turned (in mercy) toward them. Now (even after that) are many of them wilfully blind and deaf. Allah is Seer of what they do.


    They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him Allah hath forbidden paradise. His abode is the Fire. For evil-doers there will be no helpers.


    They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the third of three; when there is no God save the One God. If they desist not from so saying a painful doom will fall on those of them who disbelieve.


    Will they not rather turn unto Allah and seek forgiveness of Him ? For Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.


    The Messiah, son of Mary, was no other than a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) had passed away before him. And his mother was a saintly woman. And they both used to eat (earthly) food. See how We make the revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away!


    Say: Serve ye in place of Allah that which possesseth for you neither hurt nor use ? Allah it is Who is the Hearer, the Knower.


    Say: O People of the Scripture! Stress not in your religion other than the truth, and follow not the vain desires of folk who erred of old and led many astray, and erred from a plain road.


    Those of the Children of Israel who went astray were cursed by the tongue of David, and of Jesus, son of Mary. That was because they rebelled and used to transgress.


    They restrained not one another from the wickedness they did. Verily evil was that they used to do!


    Thou seest many of them making friends with those who disbelieve. Surely ill for them is that which they themselves send on before them: that Allah will be wroth with them and in the doom they will abide.


    If they believed in Allah and the Prophet and that which is revealed unto him, they would not choose them for their friends. But many of them are of evil conduct.


    Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who believe (to be) the Jews and the idolaters. And thou wilt find the nearest of them in affection to those who believe (to be) those who say: Lo! We are Christians. That is because there are among them priests and monks, and because they are not proud.


    When they listen to that which hath been revealed unto the messengers, thou seest their eyes overflow with tears because of their recognition of the Truth. They say: Our Lord, we believe. Inscribe us as among the witnesses.


    How should we not believe in Allah and that which hath come unto us of the Truth. And (how should we not) hope that our Lord will bring us in along with righteous folk ?


    Allah hath rewarded them for that their saying – Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. That is the reward of the good.


    But those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations, they are owners of hell-fire.


    O ye who believe! Forbid not the good things which Allah hath made lawful for you, and transgress not, Lo! Allah loveth not transgressors.


    Eat of that which Allah hath bestowed on you as food lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah in Whom ye are believers.


    Allah will not take you to task for that which is unintentional in your oaths, but He will take you to task for the oaths which ye swear in earnest. The expiation thereof is the feeding of ten of the needy with the average of that wherewith ye feed your own folk, or the clothing of them, or the liberation of a slave, and for him who findeth not (the wherewithal to do so) then a three days’ fast. This is the expiation of your oaths when ye have sworn; and keep your oaths. Thus Allah expoundeth unto you His revelations in order that ye may give thanks.


    O ye who believe! Strong drink and games of chance and idols and divining arrows are only an infamy of Satan’s handiwork. Leave it aside in order that ye may succeed.


    Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong drink and games of chance, and to turn you from remembrance of Allah and from (His) worship. Will ye then have done ?


    Obey Allah and obey the messenger, and beware! But if ye turn away, then know that the duty of Our messenger is only plain conveyance (of the message).

    One party want less Americans participating in our elections and the other wants more. It's clear as day!!

    This is where people from Oprah to Lebron James and everyone in-between needs to put there financial recourses together & get the people that are disenfranchised to the voting stations.

    This needs to be brought to the Supreme Court, I feel like this is a violation of the 15th and 19th amendments

    Look at all these "people" that trust CNN ….. even after their producers where arrested on unspeakable crimes against children 🤦‍♂️ you're all sick and vile individuals who support child rape and grooming. Be a proud democrat 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥

    Republicans are anti-American & anti-Constitution.

  • Daves Ontherocks on January 20, 2022

    We should cut all federal funding to any state that makes voting harder, Biden could do that with an executive order?

  • Juliette Hamner on January 20, 2022

    What kind of Counties don't like democracy? Communist Countries!!

  • God bless the less fortunate on January 20, 2022

    The guy who said "I think anyone who wants to vote is going to vote anyways" should be fired. That's like saying anyone who wants to lose 20 lbs (or insert anything difficult) will do it. Of course anyone can lose weight, but how many will endure the pain for something they want?

  • diveunder on January 20, 2022

    This year will be nothing more than a propaganda show until November! Just more division among Americans sadly!

  • Tejano J on January 20, 2022

    Because that's what republicans do – cheat. They put more work into cheating than into policies/solutions for their constituents, to legitimately win elections. No. Instead, they lose, cry, lie about it being stolen, perform a terrorist attack on the capitol and pass laws to limit access to voting… which shows weakness.

  • John Schoedel on January 20, 2022

    Gov Kemp likes the Klan, secretly yet openly.
    He's dividing the people by race to hold his and his party's white privileged power and control.
    If it wasn't done for racial control, then only have one polling place in each county, make everyone inconvenient for parity.
    Georgia, home to George Wallace Jim Crow racist politics.
    Home of the Rotten Peach.

  • lostinmuzak on January 20, 2022

    Hahaha. Stupid and yet so typical of GA country.
    In some countries, such as India, the government is doing opposite. They send small voting huts in the remote areas of the country by helicopter if necessary.
    America has gone crazy.

  • Robert Blaney on January 20, 2022

    Republicans aren’t worried about “ stop the steal “
    They want to “ stop the vote “

  • Norman Corey on January 20, 2022

    Well you need to have busses pick the voters up so they can vote then the Republicans can pass a law stopping any one from helping voters get to the polling place.

  • weldabar on January 20, 2022

    How can it be an all-republican board and even pretend to be fair-minded?

  • Justin Stephenson on January 20, 2022

    Having been lucky enough to visit Georgia 3 months ago, Georgia is beautiful, the people are friendly, the food is wonderful and the politics is about as ugly as it gets.

    This is just the front line of the GOP agenda to deny millions of people the right to vote – the more they get away with the more blatant they become. The GOP does not want " your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore" at least not to vote, no doubt they do want them for their pool boys, gardeners, cooks and maids

  • MJL on January 20, 2022

    I am deeply worried that America is replaying a history lesson humans never seem to recognize in current events. Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, and countless other lesser known tyrants have all used the same playbook. And our local batch of neo-fascists are succeeding in their efforts. American symbolism and rhetoric will be retained, of course – it'd be foolish to waste such a strong brand. It's only the meaning behind the words that will have changed. January 6th will be memorialized as Patriots' Day rather than a shameful insurrection. We have very little time to course correct – but how do we fight this tsunami of lies and disinformation flooding right wing media? I am at a loss. What can be meaningfully done to support the Truth? We could very well lose what actually does make us great: free and fair elections and the lawful transfer of power.

    The United States is a failed state. There is no democracy here

  • Nando Griffiths on January 20, 2022


  • JoCo on January 20, 2022

    So…with their concern to make voting more efficient, the GOP will reduce the number of polling places in democratic voting counties with no public transportation by 85%…but republican voting counties will have polling places within walking distance of their homes…without the 8-hour long line ups to place their votes!
    They must be so proud of their election rigging efforts to take the vote away from other Americans! Good-bye democracy!

  • DuhBeers Z on January 20, 2022

    Can’t wait to see miles long lines around every corner filled with black people when their plan inevitably fails.

  • word 2 on January 20, 2022

    What’s stopping them from having one voting location for an entire state? Wake up people, republicans DO NOT want you to carry out your constitutional right to vote. Make sure you do! And vote like Hell!
