Uh Oh

My god. The hero is a liberal???

"Sullenberger, a 58-year-old who joined a US Airways predecessor in 1980, told the House aviation subcommittee that his pay has been cut 40 percent in recent years and his pension has been terminated and replaced with a promise "worth pennies on the dollar" from the federally created Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. These cuts followed a wave of airline bankruptcies after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks compounded by the current recession, he said. "The bankruptcies were used by some as a fishing expedition to get what they could not get in normal times," Sullenberger said of the airlines. He said the problems began with the deregulation of the industry in the 1970s." (emphasis mine.)

Will conservatives have nothing left? (emphasis mining.)

Yeah Sid, that Airline Deregulation Really Sucked, might want to take an Aricept so you can remember the President that started the foolishness, Hint, he's the one who's good buds with Castro..You're right though, good times, People dressed up to fly, and the only minorities who flew were Pro Athletes... and If Captain Sully had been as responsible with his finances as he was with his flying he wouldn't have to count on the good graces of his Companys Pension Plan...
