If they're not doing it already, give minor offenders a lifetime SSSS on their tickets, and give the no-fly designation to the major offenders. Feel free to call the 4 hour on-hold hotline to apply to register to petition to appeal.

Fortunately I have no reason to fly in the near future.

Air travel has become a clown show ever since the TSA got built up

I had my first "oh shiat I'm not wearing a mask" dream last night, usually its not wearing pants.

Oh and plague rats who can't keep a mask on while in a crowd of people shouldn't be allowed to be on any future flights, permanently.  Decades of undiagnosed Authoritative Defiance Disorder are coming to the surface in what we always knew were horrible people, but now they're making it very clear just how selfish and childish they can be.

More cops on planes. They can beat up drunk, middle age white women instead of POC who are simply minding their own business.

Passengers are getting worse, but the US arguably treats their passengers worse than any other country. The TSA and the companies both.

It's the only way to be sure.

How is that not supposed to be racist.

It was all due to those horrible Trumpers! Thought I'd beat the usuals to it.

It's called sarcasm. Obviously.

It's not just there.  Matt Yglesias did a piece recently on a great many bad behaviors, including this one, being on the rise.  Everything from reckless driving to murder, obviously.  So not all of it is even anger-based (reckless driving and some others), though much of it obviously is.

Will continue to overwhelmingly get Smart votes.  We are where we are.

I can remember when beating up drunk women was mostly only approved of in honky tonks and trailers.

The unruly passenger incident rate has dropped approximately 50% since record highs in early 2021, ...

Amazing how not having a shiat-flinging chaos orangutan in the WH stirring up the dumbest 1/3 of the nation tends to calm things down.

I have a f*cking clown doing his little mask removal routine every morning. Not sure what to do next. Ive told him several time.

I omitted to include "in the bus" so no authority.

I've heard of drivers getting support from management to not let known trouble makers board their buses, I'm guessing you don't get to make those calls eh?  That's another thing our society lost was the power of public shame, used to be a situation like that you could get everyone else on the bus to pressure that farker into line or getting off.  Don't see that sort of thing happening anymore.

This.  The Trump era topped with the pandemic really tore the social fabric to the point that it may never be mended.  As if it ever was really whole in the first place.  Public trust in government is near historic lows.  Republicans and their propaganda outlets are trying to destroy trust in science.  When laws and facts no longer seem to matter, civilization will pretty much go out the door.

It's not hard to fathom all these meal team six cosplayers going out, start LARPing their own Call of Duty: Chicago games and forming Station Eleven like Red bandanas groups.

Dry January this year for me was probably a mistake.
 
2022-01-16 3:14:52 PM  
Well it's a good thing they're issuing swift and severe punishments, then, right?

Right?

You seem to misunderstand the whole concept of the police.

Assholes have been pandered to and empowered.  This is the result.  All those people who have been controlling themselves have now let go.

Why I have the impression that the vast majority of offenders belong to the that demographic of selfish assholes who lean to the right of the political spectrum?

My SIL works check in, and she gets plenty of black and white assholes. I expect not all of the are right wingers.
