(KTVI) – In Monday’s Jacology, Charles Jaco looks at socialism for Boeing.

The republican Missouri General Assembly and the democratic Missouri governor just spent four days endorsing socialism.  Their whirlwind special session concluded with them voting for one billion 700 million dollars in taxpayer gifts to the Boeing corporation. This seems huge to me and you, but actually only amounts to about five months profit for Boeing. Boeing, you see made almost four billion dollars in pure profit last year.  But corporate socialism is just fine with the leaders in Jeff city. Just don’t ask them to okay anything like food stamps or expanded Medicaid for needy individuals.
