"Corporations are people, my friend."If Boeing 787 Dreamliners fall out of the Sky, then it's up to consumers to have the freedom to choose whether or not they would fly on them! The Free Market does everything better! Governments interfering, by grounding all 787's, is just Socialism.
Regulations are Marxist. Caveat Emptor!
It appears the problems with Boeing's 787 are more than just minor winkles to be ironed-out and are indicative of a deep-seated flaws stemming from a desire to skimp and do all facets of production on the cheap.
Corporations don't want a Free Market. Boeing, especially doesn't want a Free Market. They want the semblance without the substance.
Boeing exists because of the machinations, under-handed deals and Government contracts especially over the last decade.
In 2001, Boeing moved it's Corporate HQ to Chicago, Illinois. Boeing brought all of 500 employees from the Seattle Sprawl Complex because then Governor George Ryan pushed the Illinois Legislation for a 20 year property tax exemption and $56,000,000 in tax subsides from the city and state. Boeing now has the backstop of special tax structures crafted for Corporate Welfare to fall back if they somehow incur a tax liability.
Boeing has repeatedly pulled stunts like this before. On January 4 2012, Boeing announced it was moving Air Force tanker work out of Kansas to other U.S. plants and closing its Wichita operation next year.
In 2008, Boeing asked Kansas officials to help win a $35 billion contract for 18 Air Force tankers. Wichita's Mayor Carl Brewer says Kansas had a long history of coming through for Boeing. Boeing received 650 tax breaks over the last 30 years and $3.5 billion dollars in bonds from Kansas.
One Boeing press release claimed 'Tanker Win Would Bring 7,500 Jobs, $388 Million to Kansas.' However, after securing the $35 Billion Dollar contract from the US Government and and getting special tax dispensations from Kansas Boeing continued their Race-to-the-Bottom and left the workers in Kansas high and dry.
What Corporations want from Government are negligible taxes, lax financial laws and no regulations.
It's part of the Myth of Self-Regulation. When Corporations are allowed to regulate themselves they use their connections in Government to receive Special dispensations and unfair advantages.
Corporations allowed to regulate themselves use shoddy construction materials and eliminate safe-guards and safety systems as was demonstrated with BP's Deepwater Horizon platform.
Corporations allowed to regulate themselves, lie and have actors pretend to be Doctors to promote the benefits of their products, as Tobacco Giants did for decades.
The Republican Party has been propagating the Myth of Self-Regulation for decades. Basically, that if the insidous government wasn't strangling Businesses with onerous regulations the engine of Capitalism would operate at 100% efficiency. It's as big a fraud as Perpetual Motion Machines. And designed for the same reason; to dupe and swindle Americans and transfer billions from the Poor to the Rich whom the Republicans slavishly serve.
