Re: “Idiotic Remark of the Month by a Tennessee Lobbyist

City-owned, or state-owned liquor stores are invaluable to increasing revenues and lowering taxes. The city I live in owns all the liquor stores and the revenue pays for the school system. Without that taxes would have to be increased. Some cities even own local hotels. There could be a trend in municipally-owned businesses, as cities tax revenues decline. This is good for the municipality and the tax-paying residents. It is better to keep this revenue in town as opposed to some outside owner making a profit and taking the money out of the area. As for unionized employees: Unions keep all wages up, even non-union wages. Look at history before the labor movement; there was much abject poverty in the United States (and the world). Look at todays economics: as unions are decimated wages are rapidly falling. Without collective bargaining rights corporate owners dictate the wage scale; and will bring us back to the 19th century. There are factions of wealthy individuals and their lackey politicians specifically destroying the labor movement in an effort to get the entire working class down to the minimum wage.
