    But in the USA we have smear campaigns with United Obama Worker Billboards from Grover Norquist.
    In Germany, not so much .

    No, I'm flat out stating that Grover Norquist continues to be the ahole he's always been, using your language.
    That the words ahole and dupe would come to your typing is quite telling.

    Along with the lying Sen. Corker and Gov. Haslam, who VW had to publicly correct several times.
    Now tell me how those NON-Union plants in North Carolina dumping coal ash into the waters are doing right now in federal court.
    See ya Gov. McCrory.

    And nice job by the NON-Union companies fouling water in West Virginia for 300,000 folks.
    Those people are still melting snow to take a bath .

    Yes, VW was and continues to be afraid of direct stated threats of sabotage from Republican lawmakers.
    No more money from expansion if you go Union.
    Now who is the 21st century THUG, besides all their other talents like Jim Crow ?

    True. In Germany it would be politically incorrect.

    You're much too sensible to be on this board.
    The open hostility from Corker, Haslam and Norquist doomed this venture to antagonism from the beginning.
    Good thing VW isn't like the KOCH brothers squeezing every bit of blood out of the turnip.
    UAW even was willing to say nice things about VW management even in defeat, which hopefully reflects a more sensible trend.
    Why does that surprise you?
    VW had to publicly correct Sen. Corker and Gov. Haslam several times over their Politburo-style lies and intimidation of workers .

    And my response is light years ahead of your 8-word quip.

    You'll be hearing lots of Senatorial commercials this year in West Virginia over that chemical dump into the water supplies
    as well as the dozens of coal-ash spills into North Carolina's water supplies, including misappropriation of Superfund monies.

    All the result of unregulated, Non-Union, right-to-work-for-less States hell-bent
    on screwing the workers at the bottom of the food chain .

    and their hired thugs
    Once again, no proof will be found for the UAW thugging in Tennessee as Corker, Norquist and Haslam did--Lie #2.
    who have destroyed manufacturing in the United State
    You mean the out-sourcing of American jobs overseas due to GOP policies--Lie #3 .

    Woot. Good for the Workers and the people of Tennessee
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The outsourcing is because the cost of doing business here is too high. Things like UNIONS, TAXES, REGULATIONS.... things the GOP stands not for. So you're helplessly, as usual, wrong here.

    And of course that would be anything NOT having to do with who you support.

    What does the GOP stand for these days, besides nothing, especially promising us NOTHING in the House?
    Start saving on the debt right with the GOP House, which gave itself tens of millions of secret farm subsidies in the New Farm bill.
    So you're helplessly, as usual, wrong here
    This debate style is right out of 090 junior college, which makes up for high school deficiencies, but no college credit .
