Blue Posted October 28, 2022 Share Posted October 28, 2022 11 hours ago, O Face said: I doubt Kirby even knows what it means, but yes I agree, Uncle Sugar has his hand up Kirby’s ass far enough to get his fvckin lips to say whatever horseshit he wants. Scott Kirby (United CEO) is a particularly interesting example. Opinions of the guy vary, be I don't think it can be denied that he's a pretty intelligent guy who knows how to run an airline. His Linkedin profile is pretty active, with posts several times a week. Scrolling through there, you'd think that diversity is the single biggest challenge facing the airline, with climate change a close second. Every once in a great while, he talks about serving customers, fixing airplanes, flying airplanes, etc. You know, real airline stuff. Kirby is not an idiot. He knows diversity, climate change, and similar ilk are bullshit. But he also knows that the airline industry is beholden to the federal government, through both regulation, as well as the fact that the us govt. is one of United's biggest customers. When Uncle Sam says his priorities are Diversity and Climate Change, Kirby (and other CEOs) march in lock-step. Guys like that don't get to the corner office by "fighting City Hall." 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
