The UAW and the common good of drinking alcohol and smoking weed during a break at Chrysler - in the parking lot next to local UAW. Nice.

Hey VW workers have a place to go now!

The UAW is doing the same thing in Vance, AL near the Mercedes-Benz plant. Wreaks of desperation.

Republicans are also getting desperate by trying to sue the President. That will backfire at the polls.

Funny how no Republican effort until recently has challenged the "lawlessness" of President Obama. Now, that someone has the experts are declaring that the Republicans will pay dearly next election.

Could it be that President Obama has outwitted the nitwits?

Actually the latest go round with children is a result of legislation that President G. W. Bush signed into law.

timbo - Risk = Reward. That is how business works. Why should a community not take risks in order to reap rewards. In today's competitive world, if Chattanooga didn't provide incentives then all the jobs, revenue, economic impact, etc. would have gone to Mexico. We already lost an Audi plant and the economic impact that would have brought. Over 20 years, Chattanooga and Hamilton County will have lost hundreds of millions of dollars.

What we don't do very well is making sure the incentives are used effectively to get maximum return on our investment.

The VW employee meeting for the SUV announcement started promptly at 10:15. The press was there.

I didn't see any stump-legged people there, so I guess you wouldn't know what time we started. Alprova... you are such a sad little man.

A lot of applause by employees when Sen. Corker and Gov. Haslam spoke in today's employee presentation. No sign of any UAW reps and mention of the UAW at all.

The R&D Center was great news. We had not heard about that part.

Great day for Tennessee and Chattanooga. Lots of happy Germans too after winning the World Cup.

Alprova said: "t'll be over soon and I'm going to ignore the man for the rest of the day,"

HAHAHA... how many promises have you made to date... only to "change your mind"?

Sad little man.
