    cockpits of airliners are very conservative and very Republican so now that their Republican friends have allowed their pensions to be ripped off should be something of a revelation to them.  Let us hope they learn from it, but I have a feeling that they will not.  It is like the cops and firefighters who were Reagan Democrats and reflexively voted law and order Republican only to see that Republicans treated them like they were the hired help and trashed their pensions too.
