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.
You mistook my point as an insult.It was merely meant as reality of where Atlanta is but also where Nashville is which are in states where both are conservative and another even more so.
Im very happy for Nashville .Thats why I said its good for the region.However I believe.When I say they will regret there decision I dont mean they will pack up and leave but like some companies In Atlanta with that Delta/Cagle incident,what company would not look back on their decisions and wonder if they made the right decision?Especially a Wesst Coast Tech company

If this is true then this si so ridiculous.If I was a Virginian I would make sure none of the people eho voted for this contract never see another day in office after there term was up.Actually a recall would be in order.This type of stuff should be illegal to give away the public right to negotiate when so much money is on the line.This is absolutely AWFUL!!

Here's guessing that coverage of this story by the Washington Post will be at a minimum.

Dude, Delta moved to Atlanta like almost 100 years ago and they have an unbelievably sweet deal with HJIA and the city. They don't regret anything, Casey Cagle be damned.

Moreover, the good people of Georgia handed Mr. Cagle his hat, and the Delta/NRA incident played no small part in that. That matters to Delta a hell of a lot more than Cagle's Bozo posturing.

Is this really worth arguing over?Its all a matter of opinion.You need to relax and eat a Snickers,LOL
Its just not that serious.
Im not talking about Delta only BUT if other people didnt think Delta would leave during that debacle then it wouldnt be articles in the paper talking about why Delta wont leave

Its also for any companies LIKE Amazon.
A company who in the future will always have this in the back or front of thier minds.
I dont see how you think its not in the realm of possibility that some CEO or exec somewhere from more liberal areas would not have some reservations.
