Okay, so every time you see a 747 or a 777 it was made by somebody else claiming to be Boeing??
Do you know how many commercial planes are made by boeing? You obviously dont and your ignorance in blatantly obvious.
Boeing is a aircraft company, they make Aeroplanes be it military or civilian. The objective of a company is to gain profits through the sale of good standardized products which boeing is doing. That is what any good company will do, make profits and protect its shareholders. The company also sells military aircraft to militaries all over the world just as the Europeans and the Russians do, is that so wrong ?
It provides aircraft of good quality at competitive prices to its government, how is that anything but doing its duty ? War is conducted by the Governments and not by the companies!



They are in BED with Pentagon and they also NEED wars in order to survive on the "Market". Just like Sony needs to develop new Playstation models, Boeing needs new Wars

Firstly, Sony doesnt NEED to develop a new playstation to survive, thats bull. Next Boeing is not the only company involved with the F-22, the major part is played by the Lockheed Martin Group.
Also the F-35 is NOT Boeing material at all.
Does somebody always have to point out the BS your post is strewn with??


More importantly, what in the world does any of this have to do with the
CNN mix-up ??

Souljah, do you even get FOX news on your tv to make up your own mind? I seriously doubt it, I bet you get your info from left-wing sites with an axe to grind against FOX since it's the only outlet that isn't under their thumb.

And as IAF pointed out, your facts on Boeing are way off. The U.S. buys plenty of planes with or without a war, Boeing doesn't need a war to make money...not many Boeing planes have even been lost in Iraq, this is mainly a ground war.

Um ... no. Boeing makes all sorts of planes - commercial, private
and military. But not warplanes 'most of the time'.
encyclopedia.worldvillage.com...

Um ... no. They have survived just fine in peace time as
well as in war time. Read up on Boeing's history at the
link provided.

Boeing has a role in all Three of the Pentagon’s
advanced fighter plane programs

So what? They are a huge company. They make airplanes,
space items, and defensive items. Boeing is one of many
companies that makes these things. They do a good job
and I am very glad that there are people working on planes
and choppers that can be used to support the freedoms
in this country that I hold dear.

So YEAH, they are bunch of Warprofiteers.

You'd think Captain Crunch was a Warmonger because
he has that captains hat and sails a ship.

Actually I can reveal it was subliminal, and according to my sources (which I can't reveal, suffice to say that they are very high up in something or other) it was pro-republican.

Cheney is planning to run for president at the next election and anyone who watched that CNN clip will walk into the voting booth, look at the names on the list and go "Mmmm, Dick Cheney, big cross.." (in the style of Homer Simpson) and put a big X next to his name without knowing why. Apparently Karl Rove is behind the whole thing.

The most devious part of the plan is that this will make sure that all the radical Stalinists (as opposed to the moderate Stalinists) who worship CNN will now vote republican at the next election.

lol, that picture of VP with an big black X on his face is funny. but CNN does go a bit overboard with this. i think CNN was an ok news network but this has to be gone overboard, they are slowly becoming more and more like fox news but still fox news is 2 times worse than cnn.

Defence Deals DRIVE Boeing - BBC


Surging military sales have seen Boeing rebound to a $607m profit, from a loss at the same time last year.
The US giant's defence business drove its gains which saw its revenues rise 3% to $13.1bn between April and June - with military deals making $7.2bn.

Boeing's commercial business suffered after the 11 September attacks, but the firm said it was finally making headway - albeit more slowly than rival Airbus.

It now expects to deliver more jets than forecast in 2005.

"Boeing delivered strong results in the second quarter as we continued to execute well in our core businesses and invest for growth," said chief executive Harry Stonecipher.

Hmmmmm...
Ask yourself this: will you sell MORE Civilans or MORE Military Aircraft after 9-11?
Furthermore,

US: Boeing reports $623 million profit, surge in defense reve


Boeing Co. rode an 18 percent surge in revenue from its defense contracting unit to a far-better-than-expected $623 million profit in the first quarter and raised its earnings estimates for 2004 and 2005.

The impressive showing reflects continued strength in Boeing's military business and the strongest signs yet of an emerging recovery in the slumping commercial-airplane industry.

Net income reported Wednesday amounted to 77 cents a share, compared with a net loss of $478 million, or 60 cents a share, for the first quarter of 2003.

The company's per-share earnings, which got a 12-cent boost from interest from a federal tax refund, shattered Wall Street's estimates as Boeing had indicated would be the case in a brief statement last week. Analysts surveyed by Thomson First Call had pegged earnings at 44 cents per share.

Still not Convinced?
I know this is a thread about CNN - but I just want to make a Point, and, yet again, People do not want to Belive that the Bread of Boeing is WAR.
Lets check some more Numbers:

Employment by Group (Divison)
Commercial Airplanes 48,956
Integrated Defense Systems 75,531

Hmmmm....50.000 against 75.000?
Clearly 50% MORE in the Military Complex, which represents HALF of the Entire Boeing Corporation.

You wanna go Compare the Number of Civilans and Military Programmes?

Seriously - why are you people denying that?

Nanna_of_6: I miss you and wish you were here more often.
I like the way you dont hold anything back.




I'll try to come in more often

Nana,
Please do go on and on ...I would like to hear more of this. Much more.

Nana..the difference often overlooked in the rush to histronics is that lying was proven in one case ..by a dress as I recall..but not in the case of Cheny Bush..et al. Understand the difference. My point is that public polls/opinions are not proof. Got the point?? Histronics are not proof.

Now with that in mind ..look more closely at Souljah's postings. No matter whether in this thread or any other. Some of us have outgrown histronics as a standard of truth and excellence. We have outgrown opinion polls too.

With that in mind.. and back on topic..look at CNN's postings and also Fox's postings.
While I tend to be very conservative..I tire of the Fox format too.. and am especially tired of CNN. ABC,CBS,NBC are the same thing.The two formats as True lies stated are divisive in this nation..both shilling for their respective partys ..not for the American public. Some people see this..the partys are not America...no way. The networks..all of them are not America either.
I think some in here forget this line of thinking when rooting for thier teams.

By the way...Souljah..I work for a defense contractor too. Dont worry about benevolent heritics husband...you have someone here in person. I build submarines for a living. Good at it too. I have to hand it to you Souljah you really know how to bottom scrape or bottom feed to make your points. Benevolent Heritics husband to my knowlege is not posting here. Sorry Souljah..but histronics and tangents wont suffice here. CNN and media bias seem to be the topics...stay on topic please. And also..please leave out the histronics. I can get that on television...or movies, or in college/public school and in the media.


Thanks,

First,........ you need to reread that post.......... you are definatedly putting words in my mouth that I did not say !!!

Secondly,... even if I had said what your saying I said,.... which I did not,... who gives a flying-fudge if a president got his "stick" dipped or licked,... so what he tried to deny it,"Mis-Lead" or lie to people about him and Monica at least THOUSANDS haven't been murdered because of it in Iraq !!!!

Yes, the dress did not help Clinton at all LOL. But you must admit that it was proven that there were NOT any WMDs in Iraq, nor was Saddam getting ready to attack the US with WMD as G W Bush and his VP lied,.... opps,.. I mean "Mis-lead" ( cough cough ) to the citizens of the US and the world to get people to jump on Bush and Co's band-wagon.

Orangetom,
I do not look to the opionion polls for "truth" or the " true total count" they can be manipulated just like the "Feb. votes" were . As far as CNN, FOX, CBS,NBC,MSNBC or whatever , their all going to tell it their way, but I must admit MSNBC is the one I watch most I like "Hard Ball" with Chris and they pretty much say the same thing that most of the other stations talk about,... all except Fox News and I don't even watch that station because they are very "one-sided".

I am a Democrat but that has no bearing on how I feel or what I think about the way G W Bush and his Administration has shanghied our country and troops into this mess and why I feel that they all need to be Impeached for war crimes against Iraq and the United States.

As far as "rooting for my team" goes, I am pretty dam* mad at the Democrats for not introducing the Articles of Impeachment against Bush and his Administration and beleive the whole Gov't needs to be removed from all the offices they hold, for not doing the right thing

proven that there were no WMDs in iraq...your kidding right???

I wonder what people could possibly be thinking???

There have actually been WMD category weapons found in Iraq and the news media very much downplays it in favor of thier default settings. This means there were WMDs there.

Just wondering if you know how much uranimum has been found there in Iraq???

I am curious as to why one builds a reactor to a certain construction point or phase and doesnt make arrangements for the fuel to be delivered. Do you know how much lead time it takes to get fuel rod ready for a specific reactor??? Any Idea how long it takes to dissassemble a fuel rod and remove the fuel?? Kinda curious here Nana???
Just remember NANA ..you heard these thoughts on CBS or MSNBC...by experts.!!! After all they want us to know all these details not put us on a emotional political string. Dont they????
By the way ..I havent heard this information about reactors and fuel rods on Fox either. You reckon they would know???

Actually Nana..the idea among thinking people .who can think further than their emotions..is that if a sitting president can lie about something so insignificant to the public as a affair in the white house ..how does that qualify them for the office..or on the other hand disqualify them for the office and leadership of my kids in as their comander in chief. Its called confidence ..and its not a small thing...especially when it is proven by something other than emotions or poll results.
But remember Nana..we must keep our eyes on thier sexual habits ..never the confidence angle...after all Nana..we are grown up and sophisticated today...sex sells. Thinking doesnt. After all..polls support this line of non thinking. It must be good for us all. How dare anyone think differently.

Thanks,
Orangetom

Sorry,... if your asking me about the above question , your asking the wrong person,..... it's not my field of knowledge.

As I said before I do not watch the Fox News their to far to the right and I prefer the "middle" .
Apparently you do not watch MSNBC LOL, as they have had Bush's political a** kissers on Hard Ball with Chris shooting questions at them as he does with the Democrats and anyone else he get's on hard ball,lol.

I do not need the TV or news papers to tell me that what is happening over in Iraq is wrong as I have family and friends that are in the service that do talk about stuff.




Actually Nana..the idea among thinking people .who can think further than their emotions..is that if a sitting president can lie about something so insignificant to the public as a affair in the white house ..how does that qualify them for the office..or on the other hand disqualify them for the office and leadership of my kids in as their comander in chief. Its called confidence ..and its not a small thing...especially when it is proven by something other than emotions or poll results.



So your telling me that you beleive that what Clinton did was so wrong that he was not fit for the oval office but Bush is,..... even though Bush got busted for drunk driving and tried to hide that from the people of the United States, that Bush was a coke-head in his younger years from what his x-sister-in-law has said in her book and Bush went AWOL during the Vietnam era,....... that you beleive he's more fit even with all his backround catching up with him...... if so , then am I correct in assuming that your kids lives really don't mean that much to you if you put their lives in the hands of George W Bush as their commander in chief .

I would not trust Bush with my dog let alone any of my kids or grandkids.




But remember Nana..we must keep our eyes on thier sexual habits ..never the confidence angle...after all Nana..we are grown up and sophisticated today...sex sells. Thinking doesnt. After all..polls support this line of non thinking. It must be good for us all. How dare anyone think differently.

I was surfing around the web and saw this thread and had to comment:

I use to help create commercials for companies in Australia and this 'X' looks similiar to one used to mark the last frame when testing video stream in NTSC format, I thought this could be the case because there appears to be black text underneath the 'X' which looks similiar to it.
Still, fairly convenient but these things do happen.

I don't know for sure, flame me if you must, but it might be good for someone who knows more to elaborate on this.

Sorry Nana,

Name calling and labeling of the type you use is very much like a poster named Marge does..except more extreme. This is not middle of the road. Sorry.
I also dont consider Chris Matthews middle of the road nor Fox News. That is an assumption on your part to push your position. I am dubious of much of the media...left and right. Sorry. Once again ..a assumption on your part.

"Drunk Driving"??? lol lol..your kidding right??? Actually no ..I didnt know about the drunk driving ..I dont spend that much time in middle of the road news and information so as to think this is a pivotal issue. Especially considering the track record of our Congressmen and Senators.
As to drug use...yes I would be concerned with that except that it mostly comes up in "middle of the road media usage...as a campaign issue at election times. When I see this and the timing I realize what it is. Campaign material for votes. The timing of many of these things is very pivotal. This is the nature of politics. Left and right. This angle like so many others died out on the vine..indicating its usefulness has died out too. Politics. I dont think much of politics ..left or right.
That still leaves us down to a dress. and the implications that go along with it.. I am not talking about sex. Sorry.

I have my doubts about any administration..period...but the last democratic administration was more worried about poll results than the buisness of the American Public. This became obvious when we were attacked so many times and nothing was done.
This buisness has been coming for a long time now..since the Marine bombings in Lebanon...back in the 1980s. This is known information..it has just been downplayed up to 9/11 by most of the media..left and right in lieu of important political issues. When you keep backing up as a career move..someone is going to notice. Muslim leaders are not ignorant of this.
It is going to boil or distill down to how do we want to handle it .....blink or stare them in the face. There are, in the end, going to be no other choices. Politics...left or right will only muddy the waters.....for votes.
Histronics ..namecalling or labeling is only going to muddy the waters...not solve problems..same with poll results...all cheap tools of politics. CNN like Fox and others ..is a tool of this political machine. I always try to keep this in mind when watching these news outlets or even posting on these sites.

Thanks,
Orangetom

My dear Orangetom,

I do concur to a lot of what you say,.... the media is used for political purposes be it to slam a political person or not, as far as the X on the VP's face I never saw it, didn't know anything about it until I seen this thread and how the Republicans are getting their panties in a twist over it
, I'm sorry but I find this very childish until it is found to have done on purpose (fact) the Republicans need to calm down instead of blowing it all out of context.

My reason for disliking Bush is this,..... he's beady/shifty eyed, uses God to help sway peoples thinking, he lies and he's full of sh*t , this is MY opionion of George W Bush,..... I liked his old man better than I do this fool. If GW & the VP was in Airforce 1 flying somewhere and the plaine crashed into the ocean for some reason, it would not bother me in the least bit!!!

Someone mentioned the hate for G W Bush and the VP on this thread,...... I do not hate them, I dislike them immencely for destroying our country with their propaganda and not caring how many people dies to get what they wants out of Iraq.

George W Bush is a dictator he has proven that in his speaches, I watched him a few times giving speaches but after awhile of listening to his bullsh*t it gets tiresome so when he is on tv I look for any channel that doesn't have his idiotic face plastered across the screen or just pop a movie in.... if all else fails.
