Will We Force Boeing Overseas? Thank the Geniuses at the NLRB If They Do

If a U.S. company cannot build where it wants, the owners will do what U.S. companies like GE & IBM didbuild their facilities in China or other countries offering better deals. Companies that have moved abroad are numerous and these are only a few: Haliburton, Foster Wheeler Ltd, Ingersoll-Rand, Noble Drilling, Global Crossing, Seagate Technology, Nabors Industries… For a more complete list scroll to the end of this thread and prepare to be shocked.*

We could get these companies back but not until heavy regulations, high taxes and union thuggery are dealt with. Businesses will still be global but we might actually keep some of the manufacturing here. When will we get it, stop demonizing the companies, and start becoming business-friendly?

In the case of Boeing, unions are killing the Golden Goose. Boeing has already agreed to build other plants in Washington but they also want to build in South Carolina, a right-to-work state. The NLRB, an arm of the current Executive, will not let them and are claiming it violates workers’ rights. Are they for real? They are trying to usurp the rights of a private company. Boeing is the only one whose rights are being taken away. When did it become a workers’ right to control a private company’s administrative decisions? They are workers, not shareholders.

President Obama is trying to relinquish his heavy hand in the matter by saying he doesn’t want to interfere with an independent Federal Agency (NLRB) when everyone is very aware that the NLRB majority are his appointees doing his pro-union bidding (don’t forget that Trumpka has daily reports to and from the WH).

If a private company cannot build where it wants, HELLO, we are no longer the USA. The American Dream has at its core – free enterprise – not enterprise for the purpose of overindulging workers by giving them rights they don’t deserve.

Boeing is a thriving U.S. company – let’s no force them overseas. This is from MCADCafe: …Boeing (NYSE: BA) forecasts a $4 trillion market for new aircraft over the next 20 years with a significant increase in forecasted deliveries. That’s according to the Boeing 2011 Current Market Outlook (CMO) released today in Paris. The company’s annual commercial aviation market analysis foresees a market for 33,500 new passenger airplanes and freighters between 2011 and 2030… Read here: Boeing is one of the U.S. companies still doing well

The absurdity of a U.S. government trying to force companies to build where it is not as profitable so the government can pay off special interests seems to be lost on President Obama. Will Boeing simply do business elsewhere? They might, as so many others have. Let’s stop attacking companies who are making a profit by leaving the U.S. and let’s go back to the U.S. free enterprise policies of fifty years ago – the ones that did not kill the golden goose. It’s supposed to be a free market folks, companies can move where they want or it’s astalavista baby. We can always settle for government-controlled businesses ala communism.

*Companies leaving the U.S. because of the non-business friendly climate – look at this and weep:
