    I didn't read the entire article, but I think this has been a big embarrassment for Boeing. Costing them millions as well.

    How long before Boeing builds all of it's planes in China? My guess?.........five years.

    Donald may be for free markets and capitalism, but he is an anti-gun POS.

    China's president just told Obama that China will buy 200 or so of Boeing's passenger jets.

    I'll bet anything that they are buying them to study and dissect them (at least some of them) and to use as models for their own domestic copies that they will roll-out in a few years.

    Everybody got so excited 20 years ago when China was building modern cities from the rice paddies, and blasting hills away to make shopping centers. We will sell them Caterpillar earth-movers! All their buildings will have Otis elevators! They'll do landscaping with John Deere tractors! Yeah--- they did for a few years. Until they could replace everything American with everything made in China.

    Add a few more zeroes.


    How's that outsourcing thing working out for ya', huh? Saving lots of money are we?

    "...quality of work is an unquantified intangible..."

    "...unquantified intangibles which have no bearing on the bottom line..."

    "...sounds like you have a bad attitude..."

    Funny thing that, huh?
