    If it's you ****ing money tell them you want it back and see what their response will read.
    Funny, I never hear ANYONE on the right complain when the government under a GOP president spends money on things THEY like. Wonder why that is.

    You have no idea what you are talking about. The works council in Germany were first formed when they were a Monarchy. I hope you aren't stupid enough to claim that Kaiser was a communist.

    Yeah, the Russians and Chinese are also pseudo-capitalists to boot.
    Oh right, Germany is totally a pseudo-capitalist state. Considering how successful they are economically, I guess that means communism works after all. You just undermined your entire belief system.

    The funny thing about people like is you think that you are cheerleaders for capitalism, but in reality your arguments undermine it.

    The D.C.-based Center for Worker Freedom, a division of conservative activist Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform, also campaigned against the union drive by blaming unions for Detroit’s economic woes and saying the UAW supports liberal politicians who favor gun control.
    In a statement, the UAW blamed the conservative groups and Tennessee Republicans for their stinging defeat, with UAW Region 8 Director Gary Casteel saying that “politically motivated third parties threatened the economic future of this facility and the opportunity for workers to create a successful operating model that would grow jobs in Tennessee.”

    Sadly, we'll not get away from the race to the bottom model if we refuse to change the model.

    Dude got to look good in front of his easily duped constituents, so this is nothing more than grandstanding.

    Detroit's biggest problem was a rapidly reduced population known as white flight. It's easy to confuse the issue and put fear into the people in TN that the same will happen to them. Norquist is scum.

    So first Corker lies, then he doubles down on the lie....hmm any bets that VW might decide that they don't want to do business where liars are in office? But guess what, we'll hear that it was all because of the UAW and has nothing to do with the lying liar, Corker.
    Why would the workers care about Corker?
