Corporations, tending to a tattered image, clip wings of private jets

Its the f****ng media, they're vicious, once they sink their teeth into something, they don't let go. Congress made a big fuss about it, I figure as soon as Obama gets a dog, or Paris Hilton gets a new boyfriend, the public would forget about this CEO-private jet issue, but the freeking media won't let this one die.

Don't worry guys, if Bush, Cheney, and the legislature can get away with what they have on behalf of corporate America, keeping the corporate jet is easy by comparison. They'll find a way. It's sadly ironic that the only way I could benefit from corporate greed is now at risk.

Does Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft, Bombardier (ICT), etc.. not have any lobbyists?

I mean GEEZ.. how many skilled, middle class, laborers is the administration potentially putting out of work by placing this arbitrary limitation on a necessary tool for doing business? How many AMERICAN MANUFACTURING JOBS are being lost at these aircraft factories?

They're really blowing it on this one.
