  1. They voted for Trump because he was famous on dumbed down American "Reality" Tv and they recognized him from that. Nothing more. Americans do not know any more about politics than I do about ancient samoa. Famous faces get votes. period. It is the total dumbing down of america and the precursor to its demise.

  2. The employee benefits were cancelled because, unless WestJet is different from other airlines, the employee is responsible for the behaviour of whomever they give the pass to . That is normally well covered in explanation of pass benefits and responsibilities. That is why most airline employees are damn damn careful re who they extend their passes to.

  6. The notion of the use of deadly force only when life is in imminent danger has been totally lost over the last several years. Once upon a time the police would be charged if they shot someone in the back when life was not in danger (anyones life) now it's brushed off like nothing. That is a very slippery slope especially when private citizens start doing it. shooting someone in the back is almost universally a cowards move. fatally shooting someone that is fleeing is murder. we used to have a judge and jury that would prove guilt or innocence now we have the "police"

  7. It all comes down to the particular situation and the assumptions being made. The permutations are endless. Some dude proclaims; "I'm going to kill you" and then turns around and commences to load a firearm - shooting them, even in the back, might be warranted. There are millions of possible scenarios - some justified and others maybe not. The simple fact that someone is shot in the back does not preclude the possibility that it was the right choice.

  9. Just a guess - because he's familiar with the tools which might offer maximum leverage across various media platforms given his role in developing digital strategies for one of the country's largest integrated media organizations, coupled with his function of being communications director and national spokesman for a sizeable religious group affords him established relationships with media contacts who might be prepared to listen to his plight with a sympathetic ear? Like I said, just a guess.

  10. My first reaction was.....why would this pax be contacting the press to complain about his alleged mistreatment. His initial complaint to the press made no reference to an older child who was not wearing a mask. He then acknowledged that fact stating that once that child was under control, the cabin crew wanted the infant to also be masked. BUT.....everybody and his brother ( working as cabin crew) know that infants don't require masks. Obviously, the issue had exploded whilst attempting to persuade the older child to wear a mask. And I mean exploded...to a degree that other passengers, not fu

  11. Where was I? I was at an airline conference in Berlin. That night we had a dinner planned for 200 people and since everyone had to eat and since it was already paid for by the host we all piled into buses and went out. Some intrepid journalist got wind and brought a TV crew and tried to claim that we were celebrating. They made trouble for Lufthansa who was the host.
