United Airlines Makes The Babyflots Look Good

The violent ejection of a passenger by United Airlines from a flight reminded me of an incident from 1997 in Central Asia. Little did I know that the ridiculous practice of overbooking would eventually come to the United States in even worse form than what I witnessed and mocked at the time.

At Least We Never Used Chemical Weapons

White House press secretary Sean Spicer got in trouble for saying that Hitler, unlike Syrian president Assad, never used chemical weapons...on the battlefield. Which was true, even if he tonedeafly forgot to mention the use of Zyklon B and other poisons to gas Jews in death camps.

Can’t We All Just Overbook?

Phone video captured a United Airlines passenger being dragged off an airplane for refusing to be bumped after he had boarded. The airline said the flight was overbooked (lie) but it highlighted the practice of selling the same seat twice. Why can't the rest of us do the same thing?

Syrians Miss Obama’s Kinder, Gentler Bombing Style

After running a campaign as an extreme isolationist, Donald Trump's cabinet of generals and billionaires and billionaire generals convinced him to respond to an alleged Syrian government chemical weapons attack with a cruise missile attack on a Syrian airfield. Liberals are largely against this act of militarism, this despite the fact that Obama got the U.S. involved in Syria in the first place.

Data From a Truck

Under the Obama administration, telecommunications companies were not allowed to collect and sell browser history or other data from smart phones. The new Donald Trump administration has reversed those regulations, freeing personal data to be sold at will.
