Posted on 02/25/2014 12:54:17 PM PST by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama is announcing the creation of two Pentagon-led institutes, using public and private resources, to boost advanced manufacturing, help create jobs and perhaps build the next Iron Man.
One center will be in Obamas hometown of Chicago, concentrating on high-tech digital manufacturing and design. The other will be located in Canton, Mich., near Detroit, and specialize in light metal manufacturing.

so....the Pentagon is no longer for defending us. It’s just a jobs program.
I see, so a buddy of his just made some money in Ill and another in Mich. Both union states I see.
White Collar Welfare.
I'd flash my FUBO sign, but he's not worth the time to drive over to st. Paul.
The thought of him makes me sick.
But the kicker in the Press Release was the partnership included "Non-Profits"......
What Non Profits? AIAA, SAE, ASTM? or some flippin Soro's and or Acorn type group to keep tabs on what is being done.
Yes I am that cynical and I want to know, if so they have no business in the creation of some new Uber Material(s).
Michigan is Right to work genius.
Michigan is RTW now with full R control of state govt.
I think they’re on a good trend and hope they continue.
All of the current bureaus and departments should be melded together and renamed the bureau of stupidity and giveaways! It would be wrong, but it would at least be honest.
ya suppose that orkin could get rid of these insects
Places to work off your student loan??
Im sure it must be some union front. This is about syphoning $ to his buddies not jobs.
$200 million to create a few hundred jobs that produce nothing.
Canton is already a strong manufacturing hub anyway.
and the rest of the nation.... suck it.
Just a lot less freedom.
Pork funnel, and slush fund for the RAT party.
The Midwest? Chicago and Detroit?? How about Central Northern!
Going to these two cities seems a lot like payback to the unions..
Well, NASA was turned into Muslim outreach to make their little egos feel better about themselves.
“This was in the Detwaa newspapers 2 days ago.”
This was tried in Russia a hundred years ago.
“In the name of Communism, Stalin seized assets, including farms and factories, and reorganized the economy. However, these efforts often led to less efficient production, ensuring that mass starvation swept the countryside.
To mask the disastrous results of the plan, Stalin maintained export levels, shipping food out of the country even as rural residents died by the hundreds of thousands. Any protest of his policies resulted in immediate death or relocation to a gulag (a prison camp in the remote regions of the nation).
The Disastrous Effects Kept Secret
The first Five Year Plan (1928-1932) was declared completed a year early and the second Five Year Plan (1933-1937) was launched with equally disastrous results. A third Five Year began in 1938, but was interrupted by World War II in 1941.
While all of these plans were unmitigated disasters, Stalins policy forbidding any negative publicity led the full consequences of these upheavals to remain hidden for decades. To many who were not directly impacted, the Five Year Plans appeared to exemplify Stalin’s proactive leadership.”
Some days I think people just like to be the first to attack.
I’m not a fan of Obama giving money to anyone, not even us but most posters clearly don’t know what they’re talking about but have plenty to say.
Canton is not the hood by any stretch of the imagination. Its mostly suburban with a median income of around $83,000. 72.2% White, 10.2% African American, 0.2% Native American, 14.1% Asian (8.0% Indian, 2.2% Chinese, 0.7% Filipino, 0.4% Korean, 0.3% Japanese, 0.3% Vietnamese, 2.2% Other Asian), 0.0% Pacific Islander, 0.7% from other races, and 1.91% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.1% of the population.
Yep. Just more cronyism and probably a few other “isms”, too at tax payer expense.
Michigan is on a good track. One of the real bright spots in the USA. Snarky comments from FReepers notwithstanding.
The fact that “Combover Carl” and “Dinglenuts” are bailing out is a good indicator IMHO.
He'll fix that soon.
High tech manufacturing in Chicago?
What a laugh.
Yes they don't, it is a good community.
* Best Charter School in the State, Canton Charter, maybe the best grade school Period.
* Akea chose to put a store their, research what that means, it is big.
* Ice Dancing Capital of the World with Gold and Silver and 9th from one Rink in Canton, and other Olympian's training in other sports @ the gym @ that rink.
* A huge 3 campus High School with some sharp kids going to the likes of Stanford.
And that just scratches the surface...
Nothing in Fresno?
It’s been that way for quite a while. Defense contractors decide what the military should buy, and politicians make sure they do.
GE is @ both locations, hmmm....
A license plate factory. This dovetails nicely with his plan to release thousands of minority inmates from prisons.
Pay for play politics bump for later.......
It’s more of a graft and greed hub than anything else.
They didn’t say what they would be manufacturing.
Oh so sorry, I guess I missed and issue of right to work state weekly.
I was betting on it still being a union enclave. Glad to hear workers have the right to work.
Its a laundromat.
