    Boeing exec should not get his $40 million buy out , Boeing should take that money and give it to the employees that are going to loose their jobs.
    An executive that lied to the FAA should be fired without pay , because if we lied to the authorities at our regular jobs and it put the company in legal situation we would all be fired without compensation .
