Seems like too many people have forgotten the Boeing/Spirit fiasco in 2005. Boeing is notorious for tearing up people’s lives. All you are at an aircraft company is a number. Your job is never secure. The city of Wichita is just silly for concentrating on one industry. In my opinion, this was a planned event.
All we hear from Republicans is that if we just get the federal government off the backs of business and allow it total freedom, good jobs will abound and we’ll all arrive in the land of milk and honey. Tell that to 2,100 Boeing Wichita employees.
Republicans claim they are business-friendly and business-savvy. Then why were they caught completely by surprise by Boeing’s departure? A photo-op tour of a business at election time does not form relationships or keep them informed.
We can only hope the Boeing fiasco will make city and state officials rethink their reliance on trying to bribe companies to locate and stay here by giving away hard-earned taxpayers’ money to them.
It seems Mayor Carl Brewer should have been taking care of business at home with Boeing instead of allegedly looking for business in Africa on the taxpayers’ nickel.
Why are the Kansas politicians so upset about Boeing moving out? The move is called “free enterprise.” Are the Kansas Republicans against free enterprise?
The local plant shuts down; a casino is built. Has anyone seen the remake of “Walking Tall”? Where is the Rock when we need him?
“Boeing bails on Wichita” (Jan. 5 Eagle) – it couldn’t have been put any better. Way to go, Eagle.
Who needs Boeing? Obama’s going to save us all.
Again this week the supposed constitutional scholar in the White House is attempting to destroy the checks and balances of the Constitution with an illegal appointment.
The only way I’ll vote for Mitt Romney is if his running mate is Sarah Palin. By the way, who paid her to keep quiet the past several months?
People should be more patient at the pharmacy this time of year. Your insurance information probably changed at the start of the year, so the pharmacy staff is dealing with that. Don’t blame the employees for the cost increases, which I guarantee aren’t increasing their wages.
