Well of course he wants the MCC

Dan Brodbeck of American Constructors, Inc. opines his support for the Music City Center. His opinion would carry more weight if:

  1. He actually owned property in Nashville.
  2. He could prove that those construction workers would be Nashville citizens and not transients moving in to take advantage of the jobs for the three years of building.
  3. He could prove that those long terms jobs were the kind that could actually support a family and not just minimum wage hospitality ones.

Yeah. It's not hard to jerk their chain. Have an independent thought and they go apoplectic.

Funny how they immediately assume I'm a shill. It's not possible that I actually believe it's not the government's job to be in the convention/hotel business, or create jobs or condemn private property so they can increase the tax base--I've got to be on the opposition payroll. Looks like projection to me. :-)

Hey...that must mean you're getting rich on the backs of... Well, you know the 'story'. LMAO
