As a licensed and practicing aviation mechanic for 35 years, I can say that Beechcraft makes the finest aircraft in the field. The unfortunate financial and political situation the company now finds itself in is in no way related to product quality or design. Be proud.
Let’s be realistic: The odds are very high that Hawker Beechcraft will cease to exist in the next couple of years. The owners are going to sell off parts to different buyers.
Left-leaning Warren Buffett’s NetJets Inc. is bullish on America. Left-leaning European Airbus is bullish on Wichita. Both are creating jobs in Wichita. Right-wing politicians standing in front to take credit: typical.
How are we going to get ahead on the job creation when technology eliminates jobs as fast as they are created? When a computer can take an order and do the billing, packing and shipping without human hands, how many jobs have been lost or created?
I can’t believe the president would say the private sector is doing fine. If he took time to govern instead of raising campaign money and having White House parties, he might understand that our country is in a terrible crisis.
It’s not that the EPA and government have to deny they are using drones to observe American citizens that’s troubling, but that so many citizens would believe they would use them against us in the first place.
Seeing all of the complaints about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, I feel compelled to mention that Gary Johnson, former New Mexico governor, will be on the ballot in November for the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian platform makes a lot of sense.
To whom can I complain about those ridiculous anti-fluoride phone calls? How dare they interrupt my day with such malarkey?
Why don’t those of you who want fluoride in Wichita’s water buy it from a chemical lab and add it to your own diets? Can you guarantee that ingesting what can be hazardous to swallow won’t give you gastrointestinal problems or stomach or colon cancer?
Water naturally contains a small amount of fluoride. Many brands of bottled water even add it. Let us hope that this doesn’t make the purists who want their water to be absolutely fluoride-free gnash their teeth, as this is not good, particularly on weak teeth.
All trust is blind trust.
