Default CNBC touts Tennessee as worst state for Businesses

http://www.cnbc.com/id/101770101/page/11

After seeing this link in another thread, I just had to take a peek at the original sources. "Businesses that choose the Volunteer State are rewarded with a stellar workforce and an excellent infrastructure. But a high crime rate and poor health care hurt quality of life."

Fallacies included in the CNBC report include:
  • No definition as to what comprises the "high crime rate"
  • No break out of the crime rate by rural versus urban versus suburban
  • No break out of the crimes by type (property, person, society)
  • No explanation as to how they arrived at their "scores"

CNBC "cites" the FBI and I can't find the stats online by state for any year to see how they might break the stats out. Can anybody else? So, I'll go with WREG and the TBI, even though it may be apples and oranges and the TBI report is incomplete for 2014.

http://wreg.com/2014/08/14/fbi-stati...violent-crime/

Note: May load slow; the .pdf is 546 pages long.

http://www.tbi.state.tn.us/tn_crime_...%20secured.pdf

Information by Sheriff's Offices (County Location) begins on .pdf page 67.

Shelby County had four murders, but no negligent homicides in 2014. While Memphis within Shelby County had "about 130," according to WREG.

http://wreg.com/2014/12/24/memphis-m...soars-in-2014/

Nashville even had a dip in the murder rate: 41 in 2014 and 43 in 2013.

http://www.tennessean.com/story/news...2014/21149411/

Knox County had 6 (TBI .pdf page 112).

Do we got problems beyond murder? Certainly. But it really frosts my shorts when the MSM uses compressed paint sprayers to make their wonky agenda points.

Thanks for reading.

I know the car companies are moving there for cheap labor and power. In NYS companies are leaving in droves, as are retirees.

There's two new families in our neighborhood; moved in two years ago and this year, respectively. Tags on cars when they first moved here? Pennsylvania. Activity at residences upon moving in? Landscape improvement, increase of exterior lighting. Kinda stand-offish, though. Barely wave back when waved at. We'll keep bein' friendly, though. Eventually they'll come 'round.

So, when you re-locate, remember to: 1) change your tags asap; 2) wave back when waved at and 3) practice tawlkin' liek theeus. You'll fit right in.

It's not just "car companies." Recent corporate relocations or subsid openings:
  • Under Armour fulfillment center
  • SL Tennessee, a South Korean auto supplier
  • Bridgestones America
  • Target fulfillment center
  • Beretta USA
  • Hemlock Semiconductors (under Bredesen)

http://www.tennessean.com/story/mone...owth/21214797/

Previously, we had a major Amazon fulfillment center open here and TRW, but I can't remember if that's the credit reporting agency or something related to trucking. The old glass company facility my dad retired from re-opened, but overseas competition finally did them in a second time. (At least the furnaces and other equipment still work.)

The only downside is the tax incentives. If the global/national economy finally tanks...who knows.

Drove my wife nuts the first few weeks.

My German wife: "What's wrong? What did we do? Why are they waving at us?"

Me: "Well honey, they're just saying hi." Wave back.

Her: "So who is that? "

Me: "I have no idea"...

Her, on seeing two good ol' boys talking out their drivers windows to each other: "Why are they parked in the road like that? They are blocking traffic! Honk at them!"

Me: "Relax, as soon as they see us, they'll move. See....Hey, that's John, I need to talk to him....hey, Johnny!" Drop it into park.

Her:

She learned.

I had to laugh at that, MtnCat, because up here in Kentucky we are using Tennessee as a shining example of how to get businesses to move into our state. Leland (on talk radio) raves about your tax laws.

Hankook tires is building in Clarksville as well. I originally ally came to this state in the military as a middle ground between my family in Missouri and my wife's in Florida. Ended up going to college and staying here. Tennessee is about as good as it gets and I've lived in many different parts of this country.

Happens a lot in my neck of the woods. Probably a cultural holdover from horses, wagons and buggies.

I won't comment on the other states mentioned in the CNBC article, but I did notice a common thread in the geographic location of a good number.

Belated welcome to Tennessee, Broylz. Comments that make me get snippy with "new people," regardless of where they're from originally:
  • "I sure wish the state would pass a law about target practice with guns on private property. My neighbor drives me crazy."
  • "Wages are too low here. Nashville should do something about that."
  • "I love it here, but we could use some more diversity."
Depending on the setting and personality of the speaker, I usually try to enlighten them as to why things are the way they are here. Only once have I actually said the words, "Then perhaps you should move elsewhere or return to your home state."

If you want a definition of high crime it's called Memphis.

Most Tennesseans know Memphis is our problem child. However, everywhere else in Tennessee is not a crime-free utopia, either.

My hackles went up just like they did when that crazy woman somehow influenced two family members to kill a woman and her husband in Johnson County a couple of years back. (The murdered woman had the audacity to "unfriend" the crazy one on FaceBook. Setting said crazy woman off.) Sha-bam, the MSM carries the story to "prove" Tennessee mountain people are all potential homicidal maniacs.

Using that line of reasoning, the flatlanders are a great deal crazier than the mountain folk.
