Just another step in the sell off of America. Maybe good for the management but am waiting to see how good for the workers. Its like a fire sale in the US and the Chinese are buying up every bit of it. Thank you politicians and the big businessess for your leadership.

This is a sad deal. “Originally” an American company, owned by Americans, ideas by Americans, now gone. How’s the “Hope and Change” doing for us? We are doomed if we don’t get rid of this current administration in 2012…….

Don’t think so simply Mark. America has been for sale since Bush I. Clinton expanded it. Bush II gave it a shove. and Obama isn’t putting a stop to it.
Its not the current administration, its not the last one. Its not the democrats, its not the republicans.
It is the capitalism above all else attitude. It teaches us and behooves us to put business decisions above everything else.
In the past, most businesses such as Cirrus would have done everything they could to make the best decision for their workers and for their region. But now business just comes first.
We need a mentality shift in our nation. Away from get money at all costs, away from putting profit margin above human margin, away from the idea that you start a business to get rich, rather than starting a business to do something you love and be successful doing so.

It’s odd. I’ve been preaching this exact thing for well over 20+ years but people do not want the change. They want to live complacently, lethargically and apathetically with as little effort as possible, up to and including making a real change of heart and mind. They would rather be indifferent than to take a stand. Then they complain about others that who have all the money and power because those people are not as indifferent as they are. The greatest evil is the indifference of good men. It never rings more true than when speaking of american society. Circling the drain, baby, circling the drain. We would rather become extinct than to make an effort at real thought and the change that would springboard from it.

You know, the DFL isn’t going to like you saying that.

Mr Obama today chose to make corporate jets the focus of evil in his war on wealth. Don’t think the new owners are not paying very close attention. And if our Federal Government ruins the corporate jet market, do you think that makes it more or less likely they will move production out of the country?
