Amazon will pick a red county in a red state with right to work laws. That is in spite of their politics.

Liberal big cities are doomed.
After the southern border wall will come walls around those bastions of crime and corruption.

St Louis is a DemocRat city. They don’t want to work, anyway.

Good! Let St. Louis die an economic death. Detroit of the midwest!

"Social justice" demands that they put their new HQ in the middle of leftist rioting. Profits say put it in a hardworking, low tax red state. Let's see which wins. I'm betting on Texas.

St Louis offers opportunity for the entrepreneur.

I know there is currently an opening for a heroin dealer.

That should help their economy.

Indianapolis wants this.
Crossroads of America, and without all the riots.
Just sayin’.

Well, technically, Detroit is the “Detroit of the Midwest”, but I’m sure they’d be happy to hand off the title.

Funny thing about progressives. After they destroy where they live, they move on to a better place, and what’s the first thing they do? They start putting in the same system that destroyed their previous home. It’s not that they never learn, they refuse to learn.

I doubt St. Louis was in the running to begin with. I’m betting it’ll be Dallas or Atlanta.

Maybe Detroit should send some of their Somali Muslims to take over St. Louis. Let the fun begin.

Indianapolis wants this.

So does Kansas City and Indianapolis has the same drawback we do. One requirement is an international airport and neither city has one.

None of the jobs are going to be unionized to begin with.

We’re getting a direct to France flight, so I think that will qualify us. Maybe.

Just like the Decepticons in the Transformers franchise.

And isn't there alot of deception in how the progressives present themselves and their ultimate goals?

It’s a fantasy that big business can go into high proportion black areas and open shop and have a great go at it with all those unemployed blacks just sitting about begging for work

Same as Indian reservations.....

Some folks won’t work today

Nissan in Canton Mississippi thought same thing yet quickly learned they would have to bring help from outside to offset dearth of enthusiastic blacks willing to work

Nissan went all South Korean import work cardre in Canton

I think they did largely fill Nissan there with Americans in time and they did just reject the UAW vote in a landslide

But it took people coming in to fill the ranks

Sadly, Dallas is not much better. That city is an embarrassment to many Texans.
