  •  Tennessee has a huge Nissan plant in Smyrna (0+ / 0-)

    It's where my mom's car was made (it has a sticker on the window to advertise it to the world that it was all made in Smyrna, TN below the three stars of the TN flag).

    Hail to the king, baby.

    •  And a GM plant (Saturn) in Cool Springs (0+ / 0-)

      which, like Smyrna, is in the Nashville suburbs.

      Male, 22, -4.75/-6.92, born and raised TN-05, now WI-02, remorseless supporter of Walker's recall. Pocan for Congress and Baldwin for Senate!

    •  And guess what they're going to be building there (0+ / 0-)

      Nissan LEAFs.  And batteries for Nissan LEAFs.  That's what's coming to Smyrna.

      The LEAF is a 100% electric vehicle.  And what do EVs get from the government?  Tax credits and rebates to buyers.  How do you think people working in that plant or in the industries supplying that plant or in the local economies benefiting from that plant feel about Obama wanting to increase EV credits versus Romney wanting to sink them?

      The batteries and LEAFs will start production this fall.  Right now all LEAFs and their batteries come from Japan (which keeps the price high due to strength of the Yen).

      In capitalist America, bank robs you!
