    Come to think of it, I sent a package to my son in Florida and paid the extra for 2 day delivery. It didn't make it for four days. I went to the Post Office for a refund and was told that things happen and there is no guarantee that their 2 day delivery will actually make it in two days.

    The organized labor factor is due to pay offs from organized labor to politicians who pass laws forcing the use of organized labor which uses the excessive amount of money it skims from the government to reinvest into buying more politicians. Who pays for all of this? EVERY TAXPAYING AMERICAN!

    So, when companies that are funded directly or indirectly by government fail, the only people really getting hurt are the American taxpayers. In contrast to Mr. Spocks famous philosophy, socialists in government supporting socialist labor organizations work from the perspective that the wants of the few outweigh the needs of the many.

    Lets look from a different view point. Why did boeing spend 1 billion dollars to build a new factory. The 1 billion would have met any bargaining the union would have attempted.

    I read it in Time magazine today. Look it up. I think it was this months issue. personally , I think the whole operation should move to the South, but if they are willing to spend 1 billion dollars to sell out the organized workers in Washington, How much will they be willing to sell out the skilled but unorganized workers in South Carolina. Boeing has been losing orders to Airbus and now the Chinese, thanks to Nixon , are coming on with airliners.. So the real question is not if, but when they move all operations overseas. There is a historical record after all. Just go back to Textiles. All the main factories were in Penn and other Northern States. Then they shut them down and went south. It's played out before. Different Industry, Same Story.

    Boeing is expanding their industry. You can't put thousands of new employees to work in the same building.

    My guess is that the billion dollars spent to build the new plant in South Carolina would have cost 2 billion to build in Washington State for the same reason Boeing has chosen a more business friendly state for their expansion.

    No workers are being sold out. Boeing has also expanded their labor force in Washington. Not one worker has been decreased over Boeing's decision to build this new plant in South Carolina.

    So, what we have here, is Boeing providing more jobs for more Americans across the board, and the nation, but government is intervening by essentially saying that Boeing is providing work for the "wrong kind of American worker".

    The bottom line is that government has no right dictating to business's where they can conduct business.

    If Boeing were forced to stay in Washington, it would not be able to hire as many workers as it will in South Carolina.
