if No VA doesn't already have the worst traffic on the east coast, just add that Amazon HQ

Austin, Texas
Boston
Chicago
Columbus, Ohio
Dallas
Denver
Indianapolis
Los Angeles
Miami
Montgomery County, Md.
Nashville, Tenn.
Newark, N.J.
New York City
Northern Virginia
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Raleigh, N.C.
Toronto
Washington, D.C.


Yea I'd rank Austin high on that list too

My guesses:
Nashville
Austin
Raleigh
Indy as a darkhorse

A lot of people speculating the DC area because they feel Bezos can use it swing some clout in Washington. Not sure I buy or even understand that argument but that is one theory going around.

The entire process is bogus. Amazon knows damn well where they intend to go, they're just using this process to gain incentives from that city.



^^^THIS ^^^ in spades!!

I told my wife that I hope it does not come to Indy. The area has already gotten ass rapped by the Colts on the Stadium deal.

One of the spots in Indy is fairly near my house so if they do show up, my house price will increase by about $100K

LGBT community up and arms about Amazon considering cities with where gays are legally allowed to be persecuted. :roll:

Talk about faux outrage.

They just jumped the shark going after Rose McGowan for no good reason. Now she had to cancel her book tour because of one idiot.

Her story makes me sad. At one time she was pretty delicious and a damn good talent. Glad Weinstein is going down but sadly the movement is turning into unfocused hysteria.
