Maximus and conservative... two fine examples that "ignore Biblical teachings"
No wonder they can't be taken seriously. They do sit on that high horse mighty fine.
I agree with some previous comments about Mr. Cook's selectiveness. Racism is alive and well, but we have yet to hear the full story of what really happened. Everyone has rushed to judgment based on the information the news media has provided. How about we wait and let our justice system work?
Chattanooga has young men getting shot every week. I wish Mr. Cook would get on his HIGH HORSE and preach his message to all the witnesses and victims that refuse to participate in our lawful society. Their refusal to provide evidence has nothing to do with racism. It has to do with a "snitches-git-stitches" mentality. I say every one of these young men or women that get shot and refuse to assist police should be charged with "Obstruction of Justice". Perhaps even be charged with "Accessory to Attempted Murder".
It is time for EVERYONE to participate in our justice system, including the black community. We are sick and damn tired of the increasing violence in our city.
How about that message MR. DAVID COOK???
Right now, the VW-Chattanooga plant has been one of the better running plants at VW - if we can get product to build. If the UAW succeeds in getting higher pay and better benefits, then Mexico looks better for future programs.
Things that make you go "Hmmmm..."
The IG Metall is the German equivalent to the UAW, and they are very powerful inside VW. The IG Metall is all about German jobs, not American jobs. It is in their best interest if Chattanooga does not expand, so it will bring more jobs back to Germany. Makes you wonder why the IG Metall is so supportive of the UAW.
Little known fact:
The UAW was anti-Volkswagen in Chattanooga back in 2009.
"In its letter of opposition, the UAW acknowledges that Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant will employ 2,000 people and produce 150,000 vehicles annually with the potential for expanded capacity of 300,000 vehicles. The union goes on to claim that the Chattanooga project's application for a temporary FTZ manufacturing authority would place domestic auto manufacturers and suppliers at a competitive disadvantage."
AND NOW THEY ARE DROOLING OVER DUES PAYING SOUTHERNERS TO KEEP THE UAW FROM BANKRUPTCY. JUST LIKE THEY DID TO DETROIT.
Ever wonder why Michigan became a Right-To-Work state two years ago. Michigan grew tired of the UAW being shoved down their throat and driving them to the brink of financial disaster... oh yeah they did!
Alprova still spouting drivel he knows nothing about.
Volkswagen is NOT united on this issue. Labor forces have control of human resources and have used that position to strong-arm their way into Chattanooga. Previous management at Chattanooga was NOT in favor of the UAW. Patta brothers, Osterloh and Neumann managed to get Dr. Jagla (former VP of HR) and Frank Fischer (CEO) removed from Chattanooga. Jagla and Fischer did not support UAW. Sebastian Patta (current VP of HR) is doing everything he can, including breaking US laws, to shove the German way onto Tennesseans. All of us will pay if he succeeds. Tens of thousands of jobs were created here over the last 20 years because we did not have the UAW here.
Volkswagen has the worst profit margins in the automotive industry - all because labor in Germany refuses to support modernizing automation and improve efficiency. Sounds like the UAW in Detroit.
"The move underlines how much relations between management and workers have soured at Europe's biggest carmaker, which is struggling to raise profits amid stagnating emerging markets and low growth at home."
Rick Perry will make a good jailhouse bitch.
Ever take Economics 101 timbo? My guess is no.
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.
Chrysler Workers in Michigan Caught Smoking & Drinking - "Again" 7-14-2011
Hey VW workers have a place to go now!
UAW = Violent Thugs
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.
