Receiving a paycheck and putting food on the table will sometimes do that to you.

Too bad the author, Mr. Howerton, didn’t include this from the Poughkeepsie Journal: The person who presented the case for gun ownership, who Councilman Rich was berating, saying “you don’t even live here”, was “Jacqueline Emslie… a gun owner and resident of the City of Poughkeepsie”.

Well stated, Ms.Vivio!

OK, Freedom From Religion Foundation, you don’t believe in God and you think religion is silly. I get that. I support your right to your beliefs. But why do you need to force your beliefs on everyone else?

I fixed that for you.

I missed in the article where the passengers had to surrender all books, computers, smartphones, shoes and other objects that- like an unopened can of beverage- could possibly be used as a weapon….
blackbeaver - The airline may be liable for the items the airline personally distributes, insurance companies surely are covering all liability concerns of the airline to ensure the safety of passengers.

Ssdd, Just where does the article state Ms. Ahmad was “lying”? It simply quotes the Airline response calling the incident a “misunderstanding”, for which they apologized.
I wasn’t there. Neither, i expect, were you, so why not stick to the facts presented?
If you- or your wife- were the flight Attendant, and responded as you suggested by “shaken [sic] the can and opened it in your face”, you would most likely be filing for unemployment.

comprev, thanks for bringing some rationality to the discussion….

She expected her request to be handled in the same way as that of the man sitting next to her. Since when is that too much to ask?

spankylistens2u, sorry to see some are giving you a ‘thumbs down’ for your comments. Sadly, prejudice appears to be alive and well…
May 31, 2015 at 4:17pm
Doesn’t that strike you as a rather broad generalization? The issue was between a passenger and a Flight Attendent. Anything further is irrelevant.
May 31, 2015 at 4:14pm
So when you can’t make a logical argument you resort to attacking Ms. Ahmad’s appearance….

I don’t care for your “Brainless Bitch” remark, but I agree that the Attendant was wrong.
 May 31, 2015 at 4:07pm
“It is standard airline practice to open the cans before serving them.” Is it? Then virtually every Flight Attendant I’ve flown with has been wrong. They’ve all been more than willing to accomodate my request for an unopened can that I can open and pour myself when I am ready. If this is indeed “standard airline practice” please show me your source.

The Flight Attendant was wrong. Attendants routinely give passengers unopened cans of beverages; why is this passenger any different? Time for a little retraining….
Do not allow Mudslimes on the airlines for safety reasons. Problem solved.

Seems Ms. Mosby has been victimized by the same hacker that victimized Anthony Weiner….

Don’t ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’. There are some in Congress who have been and remain true to their principles. Watch the candidates closely, review their record, then decide. And don’t be taken in by big spending, big government Progressives masquerading as ‘Conservatives’.

Sadly, both parties are far more responsive to big money interests than they are to you and me.

You are assuming that the GOP Senate will stand by their promises to their constituents. An unlikely outcome.
 May 23, 2015 at 4:15pm
Well said, Mr. Drudge!
As another poster once commented, “When Republicans give us Democrat policy, why do we need Republicans?”
the GOP is beginning to realize they have beaten down the American people about as far as they can... They realize its time to providing some relief, especially given that their crop of GOP presidential candidates give them little or no chance of winning in 2016.... Even with Clinton on the other side, they can't get out of their own way.... The GOP is pitiful, and whipped bunch, from Jeb down to Cruz....
