Having watched Republicans argue last summer that Boeing had every right to move jobs from Washington state to South Carolina, I think our Republican governor and legislators will have a hard time credibly arguing that Boeing can’t move jobs from Wichita to Washington.
I say we call up Airbus and give it every financial incentive available to come to town. A great facility on South Oliver will be available soon. Lots of trained workers, too. God bless us everyone (except Boeing).
As a Kansas native who has been working in the Puget Sound area for Boeing the past five years, I can assure you that everyone up here knew that Boeing had no intention of building the tanker in Wichita. I think Rep. Mike Pompeo, former Rep. Todd Tiahrt, Sen. Pat Roberts and Gov. Sam Brownback are being disingenuous in saying they didn’t know this all along.
Boeing Co. has a history of production delays. If it said it was leaving Wichita tomorrow, it would take six years minimum. Even then, it would want Kansas and Wichita to help pay for its departure.
I went to the VIP opening of the Kansas Star Casino. What a nice casino. It’s a long time in coming.
The rich do not need the Affordable Care Act. The poor do. That should explain why the Republicans are against it.
Let me help out you philosophy majors. Whether poverty causes single parenthood or single parenthood causes poverty is debatable. Marriage is a faster route out of poverty than winning the “war on poverty,” which is ongoing after 45 years.
There seems to be just a bit of difference between Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama. Gingrich makes millions on his own, and Obama spends millions of taxpayers’ dollars for his own.
To Gingrich: Three branches of government, created by the farsighted men who began this country, should not and cannot be changed for any reason.
Are we getting closer to the year that KU asks to play WSU and WSU refuses?
To the thieves who stole our Disney Mickey inflatable carousel from in front of our home: I hope you enjoy the money you got from it. It was purchased with money that my wife received when her father passed away from colon cancer. She bought it because he enjoyed spending Christmas with us. It is hard to remain an optimist in this day and age.
