sell both sides arms and keep them at each other's throats. Cynical yes, but frankly I just dont care anymore.
When you dispense with conventional wisdom you are playing with fire. Kipling has said it the best: Read "The Gods of the Copybook Headings"
absolutely...hear, hear!!
we can make accommodation for every other "class" of people but to hell with tall and/or the fat...is that it? And I have news for you, the business and first class are paying for the cost of the flight, true, but everyone in coach is PURE PROFIT...so where would they be without those of us who have to fly cattle car?
the writer cites economic reasons...when the airlines are posting record profits? The airline industry is undergoing a consolidation not seen since the 60s, along with much of the other "too big to fail" industries that has destroyed competition in favor of fascistic cronyism. While economics may play a subsidiary role in this issue, the real root cause is that the airlines no longer HAVE to treat travelers with respect nor care to retain the good will of their customers. Make too much of a stink and TSA will put you on the no fly list and give you a complimentary colonoscopy for your trouble and the airlines KNOW this!
there is a solution to this and it only costs about 40 cents

The World Hates the Disciples John 18-19: 18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
Even though the product of a public school education, I consider myself pretty well read but dont remember running across this poem. Thanks so much for posting the title. It was awesome. I fulfilled my quota to learn at least one new thing each day. :)
"Friends, Romans Countrymen, lend me your ears"...I am amazed at the number of posters here expressing shock over this outcome, feigned or otherwise. The last 5 years should have illustrated in excruciating detail that our government no longer functions as intended by the Founders. We have come to the crossroads and there is really only one remaining course of action...Liberty or Death!!!!!
