      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

ACLU sueing Boeing for international law violation

Recommended Posts

I'm actually posting this from a Jeppesen conference room in Denver. Here for a few days of meetings. These nerdy Jepp engineers who all work on creating/updating airport and routing documentation sure do seem to find it amusing that they're now a bunch of international bad boys....

This whole thing will be tossed out. I bet the ACLU plan is to keep it going long enough to make Boeing look bad and think twice before doing such things again. Remember, they sell planes to Arabs. Nothing can scare the shit out of a big company like bad publicity.

It's not bad publicity. It's an illustration of what the ACLU doesn't know. There will be zero net effect on Jeppesen and Boeing.

We all know the ACLU has its orgin in communism
That's just plain bullshit and you know it. That sort of talk began back in the McCarthy era.

 

The ACLU will defend the right to free speech, even if a person happens to be a communist. It doesn't make the ACLU a communist organization.

 

From the ACLU website:

 

"The ACLU believes in the freedom of thought, inquiry or advocacy by any individual or group regarding a specific economic, social or political philosophy. That position, grounded solely on the nation's tradition of free speech, means no governmental restriction unless there exists a clear and present danger of illegal action."

 

 

 

 

The ACLU are vipers - the worst that lawyers have to offer. They use the weight of law to foist their agenda on the majority, and have no true interest in any purely idealist motives like "free speech". Fuck them.

He knows it. He just can't help himself.

Then there is always the possibility that willful participation in a conspiracy to kidnap and torture is a punishable offense. Go figure.
