This just in: United Airlines, has in one year, fallen to the worst Frequent Flier program ever.
I have 2.2 million miles on United. Thus far this year, I’ve flown in middle seats at the back of the plane nearly 50% of the time. There is no more early boarding. I enough upgrade certificates to paper a wall but that is all they are apparently good for. I collected frequent flier miles at an alarming rates only to find that they are nearly unusable or that it takes twice as many to go somewhere as it did last year.
I just flew to Europe a few minutes ago. I booked the flight on United.com. I flew overseas on United but my next leg is on Lufthansa. I have a 10-hour layover. When I tried to stand by for an earlier flight they basically said that the United leg had essentially sucked all of the fare out of my ticket, leaving me about two dollars worth of fare to use towards an earlier flight. I passed on shelling out another $500. So now I’m eating free brats and German hard-bread in the Lufthansa lounge until my flight 10 hours from now…
You’ve probably seen the news about how the Catholic Church is cracking downon some nuns. Their crime: Helping the poor instead of fighting gay marriage and contraception.
Apparently, a U. S. Bishop is behind this push. The same bishop that bungled the pedophile stuff so you know he’s qualified. The interesting thing is that the Church is against gay sex for the same reason they are against contraception – neither one results in the birth of more Catholics. Remember, the number one determining factor about who you will tithe to is “Who your parents are currently tithing to.” No Catholic babies = no Catholics. Empty collection plates make God a dull boy.
I know, I know…I’m going to hell for that…alas…
KKK Republican Party is continuing with its voter suppression laws. Here is a link to a woman who will not be able to vote. She’s black, she’s old and she’s a “she” – a GOP hat trick.
Did you know that gas prices fell 12 cents since Obama said he would look into insider trading on oil futures? No? Then stop watching Fox News. They certainly won’t tell you if the president is being successful.
We only added 110,000 jobs last month. Romney is appalled and promises to add 500,000 jobs a month by returning to George Bush’s policies – which averaged 66,000 a month. That’s right; over 8 years, Bush averaged 66,000 new jobs a month. For some reason, those same policies will generate almost 10 times as many under Romney. This is the same Romney that led Massachusetts to 47th place in job creation.
I smell a math error…
By the way, the unemployment rate still dropped and is now at 8.1%. Romney is predictably appalled, once again. They say “people are dropping out of the labor force and that caused unemployment to drop.” They are right. However, this is not a new trend. Baby boomers have been retiring early since 2000. Why are they only noticing this now?
Could it be that Romney is lying…again. Watch this Rachael Maddow video where she summarizes Romney’s need to lie.
At least Romney knows his Constitution as you can see in this next video…
Here is your quote for the day: “You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.” – William W. Purkey
That Purkey knows how to save a world or two.
Up, up and away…
