If one is lucky and rich enough to own an aircraft, the Chattanooga Airport has a brand new taxpayer built FBO that will provide the type of red carpet treatment the richest of the rich expect.

Well here it is... and it's a matter of public record. $140,000 has been paid to Big Communications, the Birmingham, Alabama advertising firm hired by the airport to suggest the facility be called "Chattanooga Airport" in the future. Perhaps the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority's President, Mr. Landguth, and it's board of Commissioners could have resourced it's existing public relations firm that is under contract (Waterhouse Public Relations, largest in TN Valley) to offer new 'branding' initiatives.

This is the same Airport Authority that chose to put several people out of work during the recession so that Michael Landguth could sign a new contract and collect a $40,000 bonus for his trouble. Two years later there's a new FBO (ninety percent paid for by federal taxpayers), another study paid for, and a low-paying job for an airport planner open at CMAA. This is all about "branding" Landguth in his monthly report to the board that justifies his salary.

I believe the top individual income tax rate is 35%. Our "dear leader" itemized and paid only

Do you know how much the top bracket tax rate was back in the good ole' days when Reagan was president?

Paul Ryan and the Republicans want to raise middle class taxes, but when Obama suggests raising capital gains taxes on millionaires it's "class warfare".

We should go back to the tax rates we had when Reagan was president. The marginal tax rate for top earners was fifty percent, now it is thirty-five percent.

This noise about how "we are being taxed to death" is just that: noise. Tax rates are at a historic low in 2011. We need revenue. The middle and lower classes don't need more austerity measures.

i don't even know why basketball is mentioned in this. conference realignment is strictly due to football revenue. no one cares about basketball.

March Madness is the second biggest sports postseason event for advertisers behind the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl.

your beloved Democrats could have re-instated them in either 93-95 or 2009-2011 when they controlled all three(White House, Senate and House)legislative and executive branches of government.

Good job on blaming somebody else for not fixing another conservative mess. Do you know how many threats of filibuster and votes of cloture have been brought by Republicans in Congress since 2008?

I am a Conservative and will be happy to compare my IQ to yours any day, Loser.

Name calling is very immature and makes it easy to dismiss whatever you have to say.

See, I can tell that you are a Palin supporter as opposed to a RON PAUL supporter because you immediately fell back on that "liberal elites in the media" crutch. Your Lady of the Tundra has such a victim complex her acolytes have adopted as their own. It's always somebody else! Palin, who isn't going to run for president by the way, can't handle the media outside of Wasilla. How could she handle being Commander In Chief?

That's a pretty good deal. Get drunk and kill somebody, spend a year in jail. Another good reason to avoid Catoosa County, Georgia.

Haha. Intelligent people will be sitting on a pile of hoarded pistol ammunition by their radios waiting for Sarah Palin's announcement, which will never come.
