Spirit Airlines . . .Has A Sense Of Humor

However it seems some Spirit employees are losing theirs. According to this some flight attendants don't see the humor in some of the airline advertising.

Flight attendants and pilots for Spirit Airlines Inc. want the company to
pull a series of sexually suggestive advertisements, along with a new
requirement they wear a Bud Light patch on service aprons.

However, Ol' BC sees some of the complaint issues as somewhat innovative and a break from the drab old stuff that most airlines fall back on. (Isn't there some ACLU first amendment issue in play here?) Plus, as far a I know, Spirit hasn't filed chapter 7 or 11 yet. That puts their management ahead of most in the industry. Apparently, the airline appeals to someone. Enough someones, in fact, for it to remain a viable entity. Maybe it's not for everyone, but that is why we have choices.

The union argues they undermine flight attendants' federal obligation to cut off
drunk or unruly passengers and are offensive to employees with religious
objections to alcohol.

Here's the problem. Political correctness has run amuk. Wearing a pin or a patch should have no impact on one's cognitive function. One should still be able to tell if someone is drunk as easily as before the apron patches. People have lost all sense of reason when political correctness comes into play. It is really not that tough guys. If you don't like it, don't fly it. If you don't like it, don't work there. So far I've seen nothing that would indicate there have been any threats to employees or sex for hire or anything that is really illegal. Just some running a successful airline that has a sense of humor and a Bud Light patch on an apron - OH MY CLAUDE! On top of all that, I find it more than semi-refreshing. Go Spirit!

Just an observation.

Stimulus Package?

No. No. No. If you haven't been paying attention to this crock of crap "stimulus package" start now. It is strong on Democratic party social objectives and short on stimulus. Period.

al-Qaeda turns on Obama

So early. It seems The One was going so far out of his way to try to reason with the nutcases of Islamic terror. Now al-Qaeda is showing that The One was duped. Like most of us didn't know that. The media projected the image that this would be successful. Now this comes out. The terror boys fired early. They probably could have gotten some concessions from Oblahma. This may not sit too well with The One.

Soon after the November election, al-Qaeda's No. 2 leader took stock of
America's new president-elect and dismissed him with an insulting epithet. "A
house Negro," Ayman al-Zawahiri said.

It may be dismissed by the administration and especially the main stream media. After all, al-Zawahiri isn't a white American. We'll look for a response from the White House. Maybe Al or Jesse will chime in. BUT, we're not holding our breath.

Just an observation.

Just How Many . . .

dumbasses can you have in one country? If the U.S. is any indication, millions. Dig this Newsweek article. It's amazing to me that so many people want to release these Muslim terrorists after so many have proven what I've said for years - they have no interest in peace at any price. Their only goal is to eradicate the way of life in the west. Kinda reminds one of the Hamas (etal) goal of the eradication of Israel. There will be no peace there either. I just wonder why the U.S. keeps jumping in and blocking Israeli efforts for long term peace just as I wonder why the U.S. would want to put these nuts in Gitmo back in the action of their terrorist mission. Never mind how we treat them like VIP's while they're visiting Gitmo, when we release them they still want to bomb and kill us. Not real likely that Oblahma will pay much attention to the reports as they come in. Time will tell.

Just a thought.

Overhyped Inauguration Coming Soon

Historic. Absolutely. The Cardinal (football) franchise is going to its first Super Bowl. We'll probably hear little about it however as The One is about to be inaugurated as our 44th president. This day very well could be the beginning the the unraveling of the United States as we know it. Dubya dealt a pretty good setback with his firehose type spending habits. But, Ol' BC thinks his record will be shortlived. FDR set the standard as we know it for socialism in this country. Remember, however that the Socialist party had gained strength in the U.S. and actually received about a third of the vote in California. It had strong showings in Minnesota and Wisconsin as well. The came LBJ and his great socialist society.

Now, we have The One who promises to move into the next phase. Maybe we can be like the European idols of some with double digit inflation, shrinking economies, double digit unemployment, a general feeling of apathy and national health care. Ol' BC just wonders if the media gaga over The One will subside any time soon. It's time for conservatives to quit being so nice in Washington. Soon it is going to be too late.

Just a thought.

Democrats Disregard Law. . .

. . .when it doesn't suit their immediate goals. Here is another example. No matter what your take on the Illinois governor and his legal problems (which he seems to have a really good chance of beating), he was within his power and responsibility to appoint Senator Oblama's replacement.

Of course, the Donks are protesting. I guess it's to try to appear like they have some level of values where ethics are concerned. Most who follow politics on a semi-regular basis know better.

Just a thought.
