Re: “Corporate welfare is a failure. So why does it keep increasing?

It's a bidding war.

The decision maker loses nothing and gains nothing if he loses the bid.
The decision maker loses nothing and gains a nice ribbon cutting photo and TV ad message if he wins.
So why not bid more?

Re: “Dixie's Defenders and the scrapheap of history

When your enemy is digging himself into a hole, loan him a backhoe.

Re: “Friday's open line

"the fact that it was the German Army that investigated the massacre by the Russians of Polish military officers & civilian intelligentsia at Katyn forest didn't help with the credibility"

The analogy improves!

Anyway, moral of the story: fighting Nazis? Make sure your not the NKVD.

Re: “Friday's open line

"I believe they are called the Allied powers and the Axis powers, and we used to be with the Allied powers"

Can someone tell Stewart that WW2 ended 72 years ago.

Although, otherwise I like the analogy. One side invaded Poland, massacred tens of thousands of prisoners at a time, used millions more as slaves, firebombed whole cities, raped and pillaged their way across enemy territory, and made sure any prewar leadership that could lead an opposition to their occupation was murdered.

But the other side were led by Nazis.

Re: “A psychological profile of the alt-right; authors include new UA prof

"What I'd like to see studied by the scientists is whether Donald Trump has empowered more of these public displays less political correctness, you might say, to use Trump's framing. I think so. But I'm no scientist."

Beware confirmation and availability biases!

It very well could be, but I get the feeling prior to 2015 there were public white supremacist displays but no one cared to notice.

Anyway, if someone out there is really fast, you could have a nice journal article out of it.

Re: “Arkansas competes for auto plant

"Is East Arkansas (and/or Memphis) a place where people want to live? Memphis, maybe. East Arkansas? "

As always, yes, if the price is right.

Re: “Wednesday's open line and a video double header

"For them as what hate Western Civilization, try turning off the A/C in August."

Yeah, you never hear any complaints about culturally appropriating that.

Heaven help you if you cook the wrong food with the incorrect genetic makeup or birth location.
