    Ya think maybe it was "Liquid Cork's" promise to bring a new line to the plant? I think not.. The people there are not stupid slave.. They see where the Teamsters are going, and didn't care to go down that road, plain and simple.. Have you heard the Prez come out yet and make any comments about the rejection.. Will you? I think not... Water under the bridge... The majority still rules and they said NO, and that's final...

    People are too scared to stick up for their own well being.
    Things are just not bad enough yet for enough people.

    Mag's maybe you should take a ride up to the Chattanooga TN and see the squalor those people are living in.....Go over to LaGrange/West Point Ga, see how those workers at the Kia plant are barely getting by or Linclon Al (Honda),Vance Al (Mercedes),Montgomery Al (Hyundai) Greenville/Spartanburg SC (BMW), Canton MS, Smyrna TN (Nissan), Tupelo MS (Toyota)....Yep they are all working those poor workers like SLAVE's. Then take into consideration all the support and parts suppliers that put people to work providing parts and supply support for these plants. We are talking Thousands of AMERICAN jobs. Then talk about the AMERICAN trucking jobs, both UNION and NON required to keep these plants running. It isn't a UNION or NON issue.....IT's a AMERICAN PEOPLE WORKING ISSUE!

    IS this a job's or Union but not both choice. Is it like Cooker claims if people vote union they will lose their jobs?
    I reject that kind of thinking, a look at Germany VW's home nation where Unions are very strong and have a voice in company policy.
    If you receive what is a OK wage today but in 5 years as we all know prices rise on everything and the company offers no wage increases what do you do with no representation?

    I think him and the other politicians should not be putting fear into the workers lives.
    Who the hell is paying their salary's anyway?
    Apparently the paycheck they get as politicians is not enough to demand their loyal service, you have to pay them off with extra's.
    They are disgusting PIGS

    Wow you guys think because he wants increased food stamps & unemployment and medical care he's a socialist.
    Have we forgotten what calamity has got us to this point?
    The economy crashed remember
    no it has not recovered
    Obama was reelected by a huge margin over one of your "Business" guy, the saviour who knew how to run a company ( actually many companies into the ground)
    I wish Obama was a Socialist like Senator Bernie Sanders are only Socialist in Government

    And the result is foreigners have more say than Americans on all economic issues.......The foreigners win and America loses. You' all never see me nor my kids have anything tho do with them states. Their products may as well be marked " NOT made in the USA on them".

    Lincoln should've let them all secede. O want nothing to do with them. Not much different than NAFTA Mexican nationals.
    America has been sold out by traitors in them states......no vacations nor money I have will ever be spent on them States.
    Its time to cut the country in half and let them go.
    Maybe dress in red white and blue sheets and burn american flags on their borders every night.

    Traitors like them have no clue that they breed more and more of it.......well past the point of cutting them loose.



    Maybe the reps shouldn't let VW expand with over 600 of them there yes voters there. To much threats to having their pockets filled by foreign sugar daddies there.
    Divide the country before its too late.

    Mitt wasn't my guy but a couple percentage points is hardly what I would call a huge margin.

    There is very little interest in Union representation in Tennessee. Most people don't give a hoot about the Unions or what they supposedly have to offer. They'd rather just be left alone to do their own thing.

    I always laugh when I hear the Union use the excuses for losing a vote. They said that there was "interference" from the Union opponents. So what would be fair? The Union gets to spew their positive propaganda, and the Union opponents have to remain silent? Not hardly. Facts and details have to be allowed from both sides.

    More companies will move South now with this latest anti-Union vote. It safe now.........COME ON DOWN! BRING THOSE JOBS WITH YA.

    This plant was Corker's Baby....he worked hard to bring it to Chattanooga, which benefits the people of TN and GA. He did not want to see the UAW screw it up. As we ALL know the UAW has bad rap for screwing up everything it touches. The UAW just wants the UNION DUES to support the FAT pension plans they negotiated in the past. You mention the plants in Germany...you think they are run like the ones in the RUST BELT...think again. I doubt if you have a bunch of MORONS smoking dope , slugging down beer on their break, or sitting around when they should be working.....and oh yes they have PRIDE in their work!

    Seems to me that the only ones you can blame are the employees Slave. Even Volkswagen was ok with the union apparently.

    No thanks. I'drive around them. Oh that's right I really can't even affor the gas to leave my own state because of them. Maybe I can stand at their state lines and projectile vomit over to their side.
    I don't want to get close and catch whatever they got.

    All of their reps are secretly (or not so secretly) pledging allegiance to the German and UN flags today.......and the bank banners too.
