Drain the Military Industrial Complex Swamp......

Post by lzzrdgrrl » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:14 pm

Starting with the plumpest, ripest, juiciest.......


I didn’t say that Boeing is arrogant. I said they have their noses in the air.

Jokes aside, l’Affaire Boeing is a watershed. President Trump is under pressure to circle the wagons around one of America’s flagship industrial companies, among other reasons because China will exploit the crisis to promote its new entry into the civil aircraft market. He should ignore the legions of industry lobbyists and their Hallelujah chorus at the Pentagon, and take the opportunity to clean out the swamp in America’s military industry.
By now everybody knows that airlines all over the world including the U.S.A. are grounding their fleets of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 planes because of........ issues.......
By now the whole world knows what pilots and aerospace engineers have known all along: Boeing stuck big modern engines on a 1950s airframe design, which made the 737 Max inherently unstable, with a tendency to go nose up and stall. It used a software kluge to compensate but didn’t retrain pilots in the new aircraft in order to speed sales.
American industrial capacity is eroding due to complacency and corruption and it's past high time to do something about it.......
President Trump should remember Winston Churchill’s advice never to waste a crisis, and use the full power of his office to hold Boeing accountable for cutting corners and withholding key information. That’s the right thing to do as a matter of sheer political expediency – Americans want their leaders to stand up to industry corruption – but it’s also a strategic opportunity.

The swamp stays the same, only the alligators change.
