"You liberals follow people like Sonya, Obama, and Bennett like sheep. No matter how wrong and despicable they are you defend them unconditionally."
And what's the difference between the "Conservatives" (GOP, Tea Partiers, etc.) following people like Limbaugh, Paul, Cruz, whoever "like sheep"? Guys from the right "defend them unconditionally". Just like they stuck up for Zimmerman and like they stick up for whatever the "Right's" agenda for the week. You pledge blind allegiance to the GOP so you are just being a hypocrite because someone belongs to a different party. It's amazing you believe that there is that much difference between politicians. They get you fighting over the "little stuff" so they can get the "big stuff" through with little notice.
Fister, using a derogatory word multiple times in different posts is not "sarcasm". It's offensive.
And maybe African-Americans are wrongfully attacked for being Republicans. Not totally misplaced though, since they are members of a party where most members deny that racism even exists today.
Fister, I think if you called Clarence Thomas a negro in his presence, he'd punch you in your face. The only reason you like "negros" such as Thomas, Cason, West, etc. is because they belong to the GOP. You are a low-life piece of trash.
Negro? Seriously, you guys still use that word?
One of my cars is a 2012 Jetta TDI. I average 50 mpg on the freeway. Great car.
So you were going to leave VW if the vote went the other way? And your philosophy may work fine and well for some, but most won't up and leave a decent paying job just because they don't agree with what management is doing. In my experience, employees will make concessions if the pay is better than what they would normally find.
Maybe so, but I don't think it is right that Haslam put 300 million dollars on the table if VW kept out the union. Even more insulting was that back in January (during his State of the State Address), Haslam proposed raises to state workers and teachers at the cost of 210 million dollars. He has now reneged on that agreement. So what I take away is, the state has 300 million dollars to support a GOP agenda, but we don't money to give state employees a raise? I'm sorry, I used to like Haslam, but his behavior on this is borderline criminal. I understand that VW is important to TN and Hamilton County, but in my opinion, the residents of this state have been more than generous to VW. Union or not, our politicians shouldn't be offering more money to a company to ensure donations come election time.
You speak highly of Right to Work, but answer this; When is the last time Right to Work set out on a campaign to protect an employee?
Tifosi, I don't have a problem with VW employees voting against the union, but surely you can't have a positive view of Haslam after he was outed for attempting to bribe VW to discourage unionization.
"People like yourself talk a good game of freedom, until it is something you disagree with."
You have never posted truer words, Alprova.
It's amazing that some of you actually believe the million-dollar billboard that was/is posted off Shallowford Rd. VW being union or non-union will have no effect on whether or not the plant remains open. Their ability to make money off of their cars and being competitive in the market is the determining factor. It's apparent in many of the comments that most of you would eat a turd if the GOP (or Democrats, for that matter) told you it was tasty.
