I would comment about safety but don't want to go off topic. Just because we don't see crime doesn't make it any less serious. The very people...let me not get off topic.

I doubt that. Plenty of companies from more liberal states have relocated to Nashville over the years and I haven't seen any express regret over the political climate. Furthermore, Amazon has done its homework extensively; they know TN is a pretty conservative state. I'm not sure if it's full of "super conservative whackos" as you say, though.

They picked Nashville to help make it less conservative.Atlanta would nt do anything if itwere here but on Nashville that can really alter the political landscape.
Amazon didn't pick Nashville to change the political landscape of the city; no company does that. Companies select cities based on talent (whether they have it or can attract it) and profitability.

No need to hate on Nashville; they got a big win today. In the grand scheme of things, that doesn't translate to a loss for Atlanta since Amazon isn't the only company out there creating jobs. It's not that hard to just be happy for them while looking forward to the other companies that will be relocating to and expanding in Atlanta in the near future.

I like this. Let's be happy for them. They're fellow citizens and good for them! Atlanta has a lot going for itself anyway...

Nashville winning this is like your kid brother beating you at a game. You still like your brother, but it sucks to lose and it's kind of humiliating.

And you're not the only big brother; a couple of others were taken by surprise.

Amazon already knew what it was going to do but hey, why not capitalize on this. This is capitalism and Amazon just played its cards...nothing new here.
