    Yea. I just hope they cleaned the seat the lice-ridden kid was sitting in. If not, I feel sorry for whoever was the next person to use that seat.

    Here's the back story of the Doctor who got tossed off the plane and beat up by the cops.

    From a United flight attendant I know who said this is what the MSM neglected to mention:


    It seems that the good doctor had volunteered to give up his seat and leave the plane. Even got paid to depart.

    Then he changed his mind after the seats were filled. He went to the gate person and said he changed his mind and tried to pay the money back.

    They told him it was too late. So the doctor decides to 'charge' the plane by running down the gangway to the door.

    They grabbed him and escorted him back out to the waiting area and he promptly ran back down the jetway.

    They again escorted him back out and called security.

    So he goes for the gate a 3rd time! Security dragged his stupid ass out and the rest is the media bias...

    No need to freak out in such a case. There's no way possible for any human to be able to open the door once the plane is pressurized.

    The proper response would be to laugh at and openly mock the person trying to do so. Possibly even encourage them. Ie: let them tire themselves out so that way when you take 'em down after they give up, they'll be too wore out to put up much of a fight.

    Just for reference, it takes in excess of 3,000 pounds of force to overcome the planes internal pressure. No human can muster that kind of force barehanded and without using proper leverage. Maybe with a 50' crowbar or something, but his own two hands? No way. I'm amazed that it seems most people don't realize that.

    Disappointing story. I can only imagine that the flight crew have been so indoctrinated by the left to fear reprisal for any show of patriotism that they felt highly compelled to suppress any display of it on the plane. The anti-America crowd have become extremely emboldened over time because they are supported by the media, the democrats and the courts. I believe the vast majority of us feel differently and should act as we feel.

    Flew two connecting in ATL flights on Delta from Texas to SDF. First flight had very roomy seating and leg room, second was pretty good. Short flights so no food. Good experience all round except for TSA "back of the hand" pressing on and around my penis. I guess that is permitted now according to agent. Seems my trousers were sagging in the scanner according to the agent, causing my hand patdown. I explained that if you take my belt and have me put my hands over my head, my trousers may sag or even fall down. He was not interested.

    I've noticed lately that they're selling different ticket classes--some that agree they can be bumped and some that can't. There's not a lot of difference in the coach price for this (like $25 more last flight I took a couple weeks ago). I was glad I paid extra as the flights both ways had some
    Folks getting bumped to next flight. I had a business meeting to be at so I didn't have the flexibility to get bumped.

    Its electronic. You just put your fingers on the scanner as part of the private interview.

    Generally I'd be opposed to this but in NC CCP takes fingerprints so I'm already in the puter.

    Plus CA, where I used to live before it became completely ridiculous, took prints for the drivers license

    • All pilots at American Airlines were accidentally given vacation for Christmas
    • Just days after glitch was uncovered, American Airlines posted job listing on its site for director of crews scheduling

    • Pilots' union says about 15,000 American flights were scheduled without a captain, a co-pilot or both due to the error

    TEACHER = 90% chance being a democrat. You know the party that brought you the KKK, Dixiecrats, Klansman and Senator Robert (My Hidden Black Daughter) Byrd, amongst so many others.
    Jackson-Lee one those "For the People" DEMS unless it effects her especially her pocketbook.
