Letter to the Editor

Gravity will tell

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Dear Editor,

All of you fellow hardworking Nebraska voters should feel very guilty.

GM and Fords CEOs were on ABC News today, highlighted for taking corporate jets to Washington D.C. to meet with Congress. Each trip cost $20,000 a piece round trip. A similar flight, from the same Detroit airport with Northwest, from Detroit to Washington cost $288 round-trip.

Since they both want to join themselves and their inflated UAW workers onto the National Welfare Wagon, perhaps they could have at least flown together.

This would have taken the total down from $40,000 to at least $20,000, each company could have suppliers $10,000.

The sorry CEO, wimps of Ford and GM both left quickly and dodged the questions that reporters asked them about their corporate jets. This is what happens to sorry, jelly-fish backboned CEOs who do not stand up to their employe unions when ridiculous demands are made.

Every passing CEO of a UAW worker company has passed the buck, afraid that the Union would strike the company into the ground.

Now they are falling rapidly toward Chapter 11 and the UAW leader is hard fast and determined that the Union will not accept a big pay benefit cut. Gravity will tell the truth. Crash!

Allan Jackson II,

  • They had to fly in their aircraft. They didn't trust their motor vehicles to get them to DC on time, if at all. They are trying for $25,000,000,000. What is a paltry $20,000, pocket change. Don't get me started.

    I'm outta here.

    Hello, may I have an appointment with the Dentist? I just broke some teeth.

    Not happy. Arley
