Local leaders took their eye off the ball, spending efforts on downtown redevelopment rather than expanding and diversifying business and manufacturing.
We have had multiple opportunities to bring in other manufacturing jobs and businesses to help Wichita grow, but instead we have pushed our focus on partnerships with Boeing, Cessna, Beech and others. If we do not do something to encourage industrial growth in Wichita and its surrounding area, soon we are going to have a large city with no one living here except those who cannot afford to go elsewhere.
Now we are throwing money at Bombardier. Has Boeing taught us anything?
To all of you who worked so hard on Boeing’s behalf only to be betrayed by its promises: Now you know what it feels like to be a Boeing employee.
Hey, right-wing Boeing workers: How is that voting against your own self-interest working for you? I don’t know why you kept voting GOP. Republicans think you’re overpaid, lazy, unskilled, uneducated union workers. Democrats know it is people like you who built this country and made it great. Think about that next time you vote.
Why not develop a space program in Wichita?
Get the money to fix the Capitol roof from the Koch brothers. They own the Legislature anyway.
What would be a greater danger: a leak from the Keystone pipeline or a leak from the Level 4 bio lab in Manhattan?
How can a corporation be considered a person? It doesn’t have the right to bear arms or to vote, but it’s OK to buy influence from politicians? We need to fix this mistake from the U.S. Supreme Court.
Michelle Obama showed up at a food bank with a pair of shoes that cost more than $500. How low-class of her. What a role model she isn’t.
If the candidates can’t believe one another, why should we believe them?
Who knew that Jesus liked football? Seems like he would like soccer more.
Thank you, Bob Lutz, for stating what most of us feel about Tim Tebow (“Backlash against Tebow’s success hard to understand,” Jan. 10 Sports). It is about time we have a good role model for our boys.
