Mirrodie - I take it from your lack of response that you are as shocked as I was to see who was the author of the "grow the fuck up" response and what it was in response to. I know that your position as a moderator places you in a difficult situation but I think that the evidence speaks very clearly...Jump to post
There was a thread on the UA777 that went to <acronym title="Little Rock - National / Adams Field (Regional) (LIT / KLIT), USA - Arkansas">LIT</acronym> and then to Chile yesterday as a press charter. It caused me to think, when "the press" charters a plane, how do they assign seats. Not just window...Jump to post
Franky baby, That's exactly the point. Everyone is free to interpret anything there own way. Instead of rushing to the suggest delete button if something offends, just ignore it. In a multicultural site such as this one, hardly anything can be written without someone getting pissed off. I'd suggest ...Jump to post
My "Modest Proposal" -
Instead of popular election of the mods as Captoveur suggests, I think we need an electoral college. Each region gets a vote commensurate with it's population. This will keep the tyranny of the European minority from silencing the speech of the American majority.
If we keep having to worry about offending everyone by our posts, it may be time to have the FirstClass membership come with a free pair of a.net thongs. This is absurd. People need to realize this is the internet. If you really get personally offended by what some shmuck on the internet posted abou...Jump to post
This won't cut the Constitutional mustard. This is a way too intrusive journey into the private lives of a government's citizenry. The same result could be achieved with far less intrusive means - for example an annual inspection of a car's odometer would yield the same result with far less BIG BROT...Jump to post
Got this in an e-mail: <b>Did you know that John Kerry has put in for his fourth Purple Heart? </b> He claims it's for injuries sustained when President Bush whipped his ass. ======================================= It's just a joke - you guys on the left can take comfort in the fact that there's onl...Jump to post
Just thinking out loud - if the bellies of the 345 are almost empty as has been represented above, what keeps <acronym title="Singapore Airlines">SQ</acronym> from putting in a couple of the lower deck crew rest modules into the belly and selling the suites as a super first class. Not a seat that tu...Jump to post
My wife does a ton of long-distance intrastate calling. The rates are significantly better and the entire package with call waiting, call forwarding, etc . . . is a lot cheaper.

Just remember this - no promises survive closing. Therefore, NEVER close unless everything you want done is done or unless a separate legally binding agreement is enacted. For example - on my first house, the seller moved out the day before closing. His movers scratched the kitchen floor leaving a 1...Jump to post
Business Week has an article this week on KMart that speaks about it having something like a $5B net operating loss tax carry forward. This means that since Sears is mergining in to KMart, $<acronym title="Trans International Express (USA)">5B</acronym> of income will be sheltered from federal tax l...Jump to post
Don't forget the famous MENDZIE lounge at <acronym title="Amsterdam - Schiphol (AMS / EHAM), Netherlands">AMS</acronym>. Talk about a hole.

No jibe towards the Palestinian people - I've always thought that the average Palestinian gets it from all sides. They're truly the victim. They're manipulated by all. As the truth comes out about Arafat and his stealing, it will be obvious for all to see that he no more represented their interest t...Jump to post
CWAPilot - If you think US policy should be based on what Euro rags will write out us, then you're the naive one. Who the hell cares what the afternoon headline on these papers is - certainly not the US electorate.

Excellent IFE - WHAT??????? They regularly show movies from 15 to 20 years ago.

I forgot about N Korea. Now Clinton could head over there and mend the rift. I wonder how lil'Kim would greet him now that it came out that WJC had contingency plans to nuke him. I'm not advocating that W turn over the reigns of power to anyone. While I do agree that SecState is the most prestigious...Jump to post
Slamclick, Though a former President does have a secret service detail, it in no way comes close to that of a sitting POTUS. In fact, I was at a restaurant in Houston about three weeks ago when Bush (41) came in with Barbara. He had two secret service agents with them and they weren't intrusive at a...Jump to post
Listen, I'm as partisan as it comes, but the writing's on the wall. The old way of doing things isn't working and something new has to be tried. As SecState Clinton would have to carryout administration policy but it would give him a seat at the table where policy was drafted. I think it's a win/win...Jump to post
Bush should think outside the box and nominate Bill Clinton. With everything that's going on in the Middle East right now Clinton could play a huge role. It's well known that he wanted his legacy to include a lasting peace in the Middle East and this would give him a huge opportunity. Furthermore, h...Jump to post

<b>Does my right wing mind need something to bitch about.</b> Steaksauce, that's very funny coming from you - someone who's spent the last four years bitching about everything and seems to be poised to spend the next four years doing just the same.

I agree. I'm a member. I used to have a Crown Room membership but many of the cities I fly to domestically didn't have a crown room.
Good value for the money. The only draw back is that you have to separately pay for your guest - which are usually free if you join a specific airline club.
Religious reasons, or just a general desire to not help anyone else.
Aren't you one of the ones arguing that religion has no place in governmental policy. It seems that libs like you hate any church and state involvement - unless it suits your argument.
DeltaGuy, what the hell are you smokin'. I'm probably the last person anyone would ever confuse with a democrat. According to Steaksauce, I'm part of the Right Wing Nut squad.
