Re: “All Hands On Deck

Yep, we bailed out GM and saved thousands of jobs; republicans howled about corporate welfare and vowed to never buy their cars again. A Republican engages in classic corporate welfare to keep 800 jobs and it's a great victory for the American free market.
The problem is that Carrier is an anomaly and won't likely be repeated to any great extent.
The REAL threat to manufacturing jobs EVERYWHERE in the world is automation, robotics, AI, 3D, etc. In fact, AI and automation are real threats to white collar jobs. Whaddya gonna do about that?
Those coal jobs aren't ever coming back, btw.

The Right poisoned the well for the last 8 years and now they're whining because the water's bad.

Mike, no one needs to write childish comments about our man-child President Elect. He does it himself every day on Twitter.

Re: “Water Quality Board Rejects Appeal of TVA Plans to Drill Into Aquifier

And if the drawing down of the aquifer at that location causes the Memphis Sands to become contaminated with surface pollutants through the window in the clay layer, ALJ2 will be on here blaming lib'ruls or gummint. Or better yet, saying a polluted aquifer is actually good for us, because some industry shill says so. Hell, Mike Pence said tobacco doesn't cause cancer.

Re: “Memphians Dominate Democratic Leadership Positions in State House

The Great Society didn't cause the breakup of the GOP-cherished AA nuclear family. You're confusing causation with correlation.
And yes, LBJ will also remembered for the wrong-headed escalation of the Vietnam conflict. But not for our initial involvement.
