#1 Boeing did the same thing on a larger scale but they seemed less spiteful and more than a bit corrupt in the way they handled it.

#2 Remember, Boeing IS based in Chicago.

#3 If he closes his business because it become unprofitable due to costs to operate it wouldn't have been 22, but 114 plus himself.

#4 Boeing moved to Chicago because the business climate in Washington state was less than optimal, to say the least!

#5 I think Boeing moved their HQ to Chicago to put some distance between them and the union. I figure eventually they will move their manufacturing elsewhere.

#6 They tried Carolina but the NLRB Obama union appointees said no they couldn't move. Another nail in the coffin of the former land of freedom. Papers, papers, we want to see your papers [except at the polling station].

#9 I always wished Colin Powell was your first Black President. Maybe now there would be less hysteria over Obamas skin colour if Powell had.
I'm sorry but I can't help seeing an ostridge when I see obama.

#12 The expression is right, Cretinous Humungous. Separately, Colin Powell would never have lowered himself to stump for votes from the common folk. He is not a natural politician, though as a general he had to do high level politics. Sadly, Condoleeza Rice is even less inclined to politics. But as neither were able to control the State Department staff, it didn't bode well for their ability to control the rest of the executive bureaucracy, should they have somehow managed to have gotten elected.
Yes, he does, Redneck Jim.
