Let's Make Tennessee Like Michigan

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

So now two senators from the Democrat paradise of Michigan have entered the VW/UAW battle. Makes sense since our local Democrat party chairwoman still hasn't figured out why Chattanooga doesn't look more like Detroit. 

The Detroit news recently published an article about the worst 50 cities in America. Michigan was by far the winner (or loser) with five cities in the worst 20 cities in America to live.

#20 Benton Harbor
#19 Muskegeon
#18 Detroit ("largest city to rank among the worst places to live, population has declined from over 1.8 million in 1950 to 680,000 today")
#11 Flint
#5  Highland Park (poorest city in America by a wide margin)

So yeah, VW workers, let's bring the Michigan thug influence to our fair city. Go ahead and vote to fund the UAW pension fund that is as underfunded as the Detroit budget was. And let's not even think about the legal problems the UAW Leadership is being investigated for.

In the 60s when I was in college I was a member of two unions, the Laborers and the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers (ironically at the TNT plant that is now Enterprise South). Unions are like people and employers, there are good ones and bad ones. I would suggest if our local VW workers want to join a union then bring in our local IBEW which is a model union for the 21st century. 

Lets keep Tennessee like it is and keep the UAW thugs out of our great state.
