Socialists in the Federal Government try to stop the creation of 4,000 new jobs.
Three Cheers to Boeing
It is about time that someone in this nation showed they had a backbone. Three cheers to Boeing for standing up for job creation and free enterprise.
Booos to the Socialist Republican Party.
We expect Socialism and insanity out of the Democrats. But in a free nation why does the insane National Labor Relations Board even exist? The board is un-constitutional. Our Federalist Founding Fathers did not give the national government the police power to bully private companies.
So why has the National Labor Relations Board been funded by Republican Congresses since 1995?
This is yet another example of phony "small government" talk from the hacks in the Republican Party. They talk and talk about small Constitutional government at election time and then vote to fund and expand the power of every possible government agency.

The agency argues Boeing is retaliating against workers in Washington state to punish them for past strikes by building the plant in a right-to-work state, where unions are not as prominent.
But Boeing says it will keep the original Washington state plant open and continue to send the majority of its 787 Dreamliner business there. In fact, the company has added more than 2,000 jobs there since the 2009 decision to open a second production plant elsewhere.
“While there’s been a lot in the news recently about government attempts to force Boeing to place the second final assembly line in Puget Sound (Wash.) and close the South Carolina final assembly and delivery facility, we are confident that Boeing will prevail against the National Labor Relations Board complaint,” Boeing spokesperson Sean McCormack said in a statement. “But today for us is not about that dispute, but instead we want to celebrate the opening of the South Carolina final assembly facility.”
NLRB spokeswoman Nancy Cleeland said the agency is taking the opening in stride.
“We expected it,” she said. “That’s what they have said all along they were going to do.”
The dispute will come to a head on Tuesday, when Boeing and the NLRB are scheduled to start a hearing about the matter in Seattle. The NLRB filed a complaint about Boeing in April.
Boeing broke ground in November 2009 for its final assembly and delivery plant in North Charleston. The 1.2-million-square-foot plant will bring thousands of jobs to North Charleston, Boeing announced. More than 9,000 jobs were created for the construction phase, and the site will employ more than 4,000 workers once it gets up and running at full capacity.
The next few weeks will be used for training, and then Boeing will begin final assembly on the 787 Dreamliner in July. The first Dreamliner is expected in the first quarter of 2012. By 2013, they plan to produce three planes per month, to compliment the seven planes per month that the Washington state plant already makes. - Washington Times
