The truth is Capitol always aligns with capital, no matter which party you believe it. It's just a matter of who's capital is buying the Capitol.
Well said...

Unreal some of you think that democrats are the solution to our problems.

How short our memories are.... the darkest years I have seen in this industry were under the 8 years of Obama.

Yeah because 2008-2016 was so dark compared to 9-11 or these COVID times.

And why did the period beginning in 2008 suck? It couldn’t possibly have been because of the (R) administration beforehand, could it?

I suppose we could keep the current guy.

In July 2019, President Donald Trump nominated him to become the next secretary of labor. Prior to his nomination, Scalia was known as a corporate lawyer who had a record of arguing against worker's rights. He was confirmed by the Senate on September 26, and was sworn in on September 30, 2019.

Y’all are making the mistake of thinking policy makers control our destiny when it’s the people who bankroll the policy makers. As has already been said, stop being influenced and mimic the influencers.

Well stated, Grumpy.

Similarly, our lawmakers & their staffs ceased writing legislation a long time ago. Laws are already written by interest groups on K Street and peddled to Congress. This is why you have to, "pass it to know what's in it" and why a 5,000+ page piece of "legislation" was passed faster than it could be printed.

This big win for us (organized labor) will having me checking my mailbox everyday in anticipation of what prize we have won. I am preparing myself to be underwhelmed.

Good news on the "emotional support animal" front as well.

Supposedly going to be much more tightly regulated going forward in terms of training requirements. Plenty of AI generated news copy out there: see the google.

Funniest story: someone bringing on 2 animals. One to emotionally support the owner, the other animal to emotionally support the other animal.

Reason number #67 that I couldn't be a gate agent...my eyes would fall out of my skull from all the eye rolling.


(If I never have to pick up another doggie doodie in the terminal, I'll retire a happy man. Jebus, people are so fixated on their phones they'll step in anything).
