Thread: Danke, do something

  1. #1

    Exclamation Danke, do something

    Delayed two hours at IAH last week after operations overfilled an A-319 with fuel for a short haul to MSY, thus exceeding MGLW.

    Then, they took away my premium seat and bumped me back to the last row, middle seat, without permission or advance notice.

    Now, I get to read this:

    WTF, Rickshaw Airlines?


    United Airlines CEO: No Regrets, Cutting Ties with NRA Was Personal

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...-nra-personal/

    23 May 20181

    United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz expressed no regrets for cutting ties with the NRA, stressing the decision to do so was “personal,” during the United Continental Holdings Inc.’s annual meeting on Wednesday.

    Munoz described the decision as “personal” after a meeting attendee asked why United took a position that ran the risk of alienating every gun owner and/or pro-Second Amendment citizen in America.

    Bloomberg reports that Munoz responded by saying, “Sir, it wasn’t political. It was personal with regard to my family at United.”

    Munoz explained that one of the individuals killed in the Parkland school shooting was the daughter of a United airlines pilot. He added, “That’s why we made the decision. We aren’t here to make political conversation or strike political debate. We’re here to serve customers.”

    He did not explain what the NRA had to do with the Parkland shooting or how cutting ties with that organization provided a service to customers.

    On February 24, 2018—just ten days after the Parkland shooting—Breitbart News reported that over a dozen companies caved in the face of anti-NRA protests. United was one of those companies. Others included First National Bank of Omaha, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Symantec, Metlife, Delta Airlines, Best Western, Hertz, North American Van Lines, Paramount Rx, SimpliSafe, and TrueCar.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    btw, we flew last week and they didn't make anybody do the shoeless shuffle, or empty all our $#@! into a dozen bins. It was damn refreshing, I thought maybe they figured it was ok to stop with the security theatre. But then on the way back home we had to do all that $#@! again.
