Goodbye, Boeing

Lawmakers should investigate if there was a quid-pro-quo between Boeing and the NLRB that resulted in the NLRB's sudden reversal on blocking Boeing's South Carolina plant, and the closing of the Kansas plant with the transfer of hundres of jobs to the all-union plant in Washington.

This reeks of high crimes and misdemeanors.

2,100 jobs lost as Boeing announces plan to shut down operations in Wichita by 2013

One more win for the Obama administration.. Another manufacturer leaves a right-to-work state.

Boeing studies future of Wichita defense site

Read between the lines. Obama's NRLB blocks Boeing from opening a plant in South Carolina because SC is a right-to-work state. Kansas is a right-to-work state. Doubtful that any non-unionized corporation in Kansas will win any contracts under the Obama administration. Beechcraft has been shut out of contract bidding for a USAF contract after meeting all the requirements...wonder why?

The Obama job-killing juggernaut rolls on..

City: New rec center should be $15 million investment

Okay, Bozo, produce your source. You must, because you are the one who assumes to change the meaning of a commonly accepted term.

Oh, I am sorry. You are one of "those" who do not produce. Let me explain. You have to support your claims with substance.

Hi, Brink75,
I live west of Iowa and I voted NO on the library (I would have voted NO several times if I had an "in" with the Democrats who control Lawrence politics, but I would not sink that low), and I think this project stinks just as badly.

There is no justification for spending $15,000,000 of taxpayer dollars that Lawrence does not have for a function that could be funded by investments from private enterprise. If private enterprise is not willing to invest, it means it is most likely a losing proposition.

Tell me, Brink75, are you up for building an $18,000,000 fitness facility in West Lawrence using your own dollars and/or line of credit? If not, why should the property owners of Lawrence be forced to finance something you would not?

Dang, you are sooooo tiring.

Okay, show me the other definitions of "profit," that are not associated with government and/or socialist/marxist organizations. Because, as far as I can remember, "profit" is a term that was originated by, Spaghetti-monster forgive me, "capitalists." So, unless you are a capitalist, you don't get to change the meaning of a capitalists' word. You have to invent your own word for taking other peoples' money to give to other people to make them feel happy.......for a very short period of time......until they run out of money and demand more from other people.

Sorry, Bozo, as much as you want to, you cannot change the meaning of "profit."

You have to invent another word. Go for it.

My contribution is, "grab-it."
