THE TRUTH HERE! Well it's official folks, Remington Arms is leaving for Nashville Tn, by next year. Not an expansion but relocation which means 1300 workers will be losing their jobs. The NY Safe Act has contributed to the company's decision greatly, according to a spokesperson, Remington has lost it's competitive edge in new york, and therefore this is a purely business oriented decision, Well Governor Liberal, what do you have to say now? As of next year Ilion will essentially cease to exist, Folks make thy exodus plans from NY soon, for time is short...THE TRUTH AT WORK...
You dumbazz... re-read the article. They're not moving as of yet. They will do everything to keep Remington arms in this area. Nothing has been made official.

A..oh!Your IQ level just slipped down to moron. Do as your peers and sit in your corner, put your head between your legs and lick yourself. You know yourself that it will bring you comfort and keep you out of the danger zone of becoming an imbecile.
LOL I'll keep that in mind Randy. So will you be joining the Tennessee exodus? I'm sure they have room for one more tank top tattoo boy and there's a WalMart on every corner! You'll be right at home there and nobody will care that you're shy a few teeth. Off you go now....

Excellent, educated retort. Tell us all about the million dollar business you supposedly own. Tell us where it's located and what you do for the community. Provide details.

If by some chance you actually are a small business owner - "head shop" does not count, by the way - have fun paying the taxes as the population disappears thanks to "people" like you.

Actually it has you people just don't know it yet. Remington is quietly closing on a facility already. All these people who thought they would stay were wrong.

Yeah I'll get right on that. No place like a topix thread to advertise. LOL Taxes are paid thanks. I have a very good accountant. I take money every day from dipstix like you and laugh as soon as you hit the front door to the sidewalk. Now I don't run a head shop but i'll notify the guy who does that he "doesn't count".(He has the same accountant) He'll get a kick out of that. I know i did. I'm bettin' you live on less than I pay in taxes but I couldn't care less about you or Remington leaving. Best of luck to you both. LOL!

Posts like this are created by lonely people with no job or friends. Their biggest connection to mingle in with other people is thru sites such as Topix. They make up these wild stories to see how much of a rise they can get from others. When this post runs it's course, these people will muster up another ridiculous story and the cycle continues. Just spend about an hour and read some old posts, most of them were never true or even happened. Get a job and some friend people!!

All I heard was that they are interested in othersareas. They din't say whether it was for a relocation or just having another factory. For the valleys sake, lets hope they don't close 100percent. NY should throw some incentive their way.

You sound like you need a job or a connection goof. The Tennessean is reporting on this fool not topix. BTW topix has had plenty of news first. Some of you people are just too mountain stupid to be able to recognize the true from the BS.
God that area is so full of crybaby denial specialists. Look at the, just look at them they need to complain and "turn it around" no wonder you're the red head stepchild of the NE. Get yourself a better job and if you don't have anything to contribute then STFU hick.

Thank you Governor Andrew Cuomo. Your unconstitutional gun control just law killed Remington Arms. It also killed your chance of running for president. Economic development is obviously not on your agenda. Especially in Central New York. It's a good day to raise taxes Andrew. A good day to raise taxes.

Unfortunately, the writing is on the wall. jobs will be lost and Ilion will go down the chitter. I hope everyone in the area understands that politics and politicians are at fault for letting this happen. Don't be fooled by the word relocation. its just another way of saying we are moving the operations...... I wish it wasn't true but it time to wake up and smell the coffee.

Yeah you and the assembly sure got it all figured out. Their plant engineers are already looking at logistics. You keep right on hoping the ID and some NY politician have it all figured out. Right retards... it's all an "act" I suppose. You people are missing the writing on the wall just like numerous other communities in NY too many to list that have played the same game. NY cannot compete period. People have signed NDAs and they have already looked at 3 sites there fool. I suppose that's all an act LMAO!!

Ya two posts above you're here saying you're an "OD reporter" with this link. STFU and handle the bad news like a woman will you?

We see who likes to "make up stories" now don't we there "OD reporter".

The most a laughable part is that you actually consider any of the goofs at the OD credible. They report AFTER the fact and only what they are told. SO STFU stop trying to bully people into beleieveing your sheep;oke fairy tale and explain why they have spent thens of thousands then having 12 guys shopping around and talkiung to developers and their politicians.

You people are imbeciles hoping against hope that your fucking pathetic newt politicians will be able to offset their Tenn. savings by staying there.

The mayor of Ilion is and idiot because he actually said it looks "hard" to move a few machines LMAO! Maybe to upstate losers who can't even run a shop it does but that is NO problem.

There's LOTS of examples of these companies leaving you there including pepsi and many others. Remington will enjoy even more sales if they move period. They will have a better schooled workforce via the two colleges of engineering near Nashville, they will pay LOWER electricity thru Tenn Municipal Power Authority Tenn has some of the cheapest power in THE WORLD and far far less taxes.

You retards better stop looking for excuses to attack everyone and get your heads screwed on straight instead of waving around some laughably impotent "Observer Retard Patch" article.

Do you want to hear what Caterpillar and Pacar have done to states like NY and people like you?

Keep hoping and attacking people who point out the obcvious.

The fact is is that if anyone had read the Owners the Freedom Group's quarterly they discussed having to move Rem out of NY 100% simply in order to sell. Not only was the writing on the wall despite what the lunatic rosey glasses Tenney and those fools say they never bother to read the wall.

These people will still think it's"coming back"a after the last truck hauls their line out of that old decrepit liability of a tax hole anyway.
