The first step is for us to stop propping up things that are fundamentally broken. From labor unions to banking to housing... propping up something that is broken perpetuates the problem. The United States needs a reset to bring us back to reality. We constantly live in excess, we think we are entitled to what we get regardless whether it is a fair wage or not, overall we have blame mentality, and way too many in the US have a horrible work ethic and we keep bailing the bad things out or blaming it on someone else. People claim that things are going overseas because of outsourcing. Well it is being outsourced because our unions have given US workers a false belief that jobs and pay scales are guaranteed and they drive the company into bankruptcy if they don't move.I agree with you on this Jonathan..
What can we do anyway?
We have had the worst student scores in the industrialized world for decades!
Our children suck at reading, math and science and we can't fire bad teachers.
All of the top tech firms have to bring IN educated labor! makes more sense to take the work to them.
Politicians and religious leaders HATE a population of critical thinkers educated in science and reading comprehension.
We are a nation of happy, fat, stupid and lazy and the happy is going away!
PRECISELY what Ross Perot warned us and Clinton about,but Clinton did'nt seem to care.This is the result of half a century of economic treason by our elected leaders.
The last of whats left, everything from orange groves to airplane engines are going overseas....
I guess about the only thing they wont outsource is lawn mowing, auto repair and newspaper delivery, and burger flipper jobs. If they figure out a way, they will outsource them too !
The founders included a prohibition against an income tax in the Constitution, something which was later overturned by the Sixteenth Amendment. Suddenly, we had a society structured on envy, and flipped the switch on the ability of all federal politicians afterward to pander to the working class and the poor....We're mad at people that have more than us and try to tax (steal) it away from them...Its not OK to demand more (percentage wise) from rich people just because there are more people wanting to vote to make it that way...
Chuck, your prediction of the business plan is likely spot-on, but when I see criticism of the legacy technology, I keep wondering why companies like Cirrus keep using these engines if they're so dated....a business that is shriveling on the vine. Engines virtually unchanged since the 1930s. They’re counting on China opening to general aviation...
Just imagine what a marvel of reliability and durability a Model A Ford engine would have been had Ford continued to manufacture it since 1928, making only evolutionary changes.Chuck, your prediction of the business plan is likely spot-on, but when I see criticism of the legacy technology, I keep wondering why companies like Cirrus keep using these engines if they're so dated.
But none of these more complicated, newer-tech piston aircraft engines improve significantly on power-to-weight without introducing other downsides, and they're certainly not cheaper. What's to be gained?Just imagine what a marvel of reliability and durability a Model A Ford engine would have been had Ford continued to manufacture it since 1928, making only evolutionary changes...
