Rant

Bennett's Sunday cartoon, vote union or division, is ironic because where there's a union, there's division: management and labor, no in between, always at odds.

Please, could more local yokels chime in to advise the second-largest car maker in the world about union dealings?

You don't have to join the union if it's voted in. This is a right-to-work state. You can not join and become a SCAB. Feel better?

DOJ Eric Holder wants convicted felons' voting rights restored? Sure, he expects to be one soon, and he wants his vote to count.

Russia has 13 percent flat tax, no capital gains tax. Who are the Communists again, comrades?

Only one Republican in the United States could best Hillary in 2016. No, it's not Christie. No, I won't tell you who it is.

If carrying concealed guns is good for churches and bars, why not the legislative chambers?

The "L" in Ooltewah isn't silent. Also, the area between roadways is a "median" not "medium."

Atheists seeking acceptance in a community that doesn't even tolerate Democrats? They must be kidding!

A five-year-old with a box of crayons could draw a better traffic plan than the one TDOT idiots devised for Signal Mountain.

Nice new look inside our airport, but they didn't add electrical outlets in waiting areas. Added in new bar; none in waiting areas. Poor planning.

Ms. Sohn, on Corker's drum beating, first he has information from sources we'll never reach from his perch as Ranking Member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Two, he was indeed speaking for Volkswagen, who could not speak for itself due to pressure from it's own labor council, guild, whatever represented on VW's BOD. When Corker said his own silence was misinterpreted, read Wolfsburg. Yes, Virginia, the new line was on the line.

Mr. Cooper, I can't say I see how a UAW win in Chattanooga would have much bearing on Big Three negotiations, but I thank you for the reminder. One similarity, GM has UAW on the board, so the pattern bargaining begins there. Then Ford Motor which received no bail out. It will be interesting to see how things go with Fiat. In a perfect world, the GM leadership should shrug and explain they're a $Billion behind on the Volt.

Ms. Sohn, although this area is better off with out the UAW, we are graced with the Building Trades, especially the IBEW/NECA partnership training superb electricians. The TFP might have delved into that example of partnership, but maybe I flat missed it.

A contradiction of the UAW and others in the AFL-CIO was the initial of support of Obama Care, morphing into these same friends trying to secure exemptions from it. When Obama spoke out for the UAW, he needed to.

Another fissure, the president is also upside down with labor on the XL Pipe Line, as in more Union jobs real quick like a bunny.

This also an example of new Obama torch of "Income Inequality." Ultra moneyed liberal interests in the Democratic Party with their own version of scientific predilections and large investments in "Green Energy" are shafting down ladder working folks; union or not, but that division is another rant for another day.

So fechancellor, where do YOU get this factual information. If you do not preface a statement like this with, "in my opinion", "I think", "it could be that", etc., then you are as guilty as Corker of posting false information unless you can show some facts.

Mr. Corker refuses to unveil his supposed sources. Perhaps you could enlighten us as to your sources for your statement?
