Brownback leads Kansas delegation heading to English air show

July 3, 2012


— Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback will lead a delegation of state and local officials heading overseas to promote aircraft built in the state.

The Republican governor will be joined by Commerce Secretary Pat George and representatives from the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition in attending the Farnborough International Airshow in England from July 9 through July 15.

The delegation will be seeking to expand export markets for Kansas aircraft. The state exports more than $2 billion in aircraft, accounting for more than 18 percent of all exports coming from Kansas.

Brownback says officials will be promoting the Kansas business climate for new job creation, including recent changes to the state's income tax code, as well as the Kansas work force.

Who's paying for this trip for Gov. Sam and his entourage?

We are. I want a taxpayer funded vacation in England, too. Maybe we could all take turns like the Swedish Twitter handle.

Oh no. Potential for even more embarrasment for the state. I hope he doesn't hold a public prayer meeting at the air show. (RIck Perry's not going to is he?)

Let's just hope he doesn't try to wash people's feet.

Bernoulli's principle is just a theory.

I hope Sam teaches the controversy and that lift is really produced by the hands of jesus.

Ha! I hear that's now on the state books in Texas.

Boeing is still open you moran, it just moved some jobs out of Wichita.

And ironically to a state with stronger union laws.

He has to get through immigration first (one and a half hour lines) and assuming he flies business class the cost is in the order of $5000 dollars a head plus hotel car etc

all you doom and gloomers would be protesting if brownback brought back an aviation company and they wanted to locate in lawrence, that's a given.

"...if brownback brought back an aviation company and they wanted to locate in lawrence..."

Last I heard the temperature in Hell hadn't decreased...

The only thing Brownback will bring back from England is a miniaturized Big Ben toy. People in Europe pay attention to US politics and they know perfectly well that people like Brownback are completely backwards.

How true, JackMcKee. I'm in London, UK, at the moment, and they know far more about the US than you can imagine. (Does anyone have a loan based on the LIBOR rate? That's always on the news here.)

They complain about their health coverage, but when asked if they want the US system, they say "no way" and endorse their own, problems and all.

They only think of Kansas as being the home of Dorothy, tornadoes and guns. They sure don't think of basketball and planes.

Maybe Slick Sam won't get through immigration. Fred Phelps and family have been banned from UK.

Whatever became of the New Civility? Disappointed progressives seem all inflamed on this thread.
