Republicans fuel the uptick in unruly airline passengers

I avoid flying any chance I get. Back in the late 70's and 80's flying was a good experience where they made you feel welcome and wanted you to enjoy you're experience.
Now days its a horrible experience with horrible people that wish you were not there. And we are in agreement because I wish I was not there also.
Its over priced and inconvenience on steroids.
I hope every one of them go broke and someone opens an airline with class like it used to be.
Until then I don't mind driving and stopping whenever I feel like it.

So to summarize this thread we have the OP who posted some anti-MAGA stuff, then refused to believe science, refused to answer replies to issues the OP initiated and now wants everyone to poop in a bag because that is logical?

I sense the OP can't critically think, is backed into a corner, and just wants to argue. Perhaps try getting a spouse?



More science. Science is hard. But traditional masks don't stop covid. Neither do plexiglas shields. Apparently the MAGA people are correct; at least according to science! Links included in the text:


Masks

Face coverings limit the emission of droplets and may lower the chance of inhaling large droplets, but they have limited efficacy with respect to the high concentrations of small particles generated during breathing and talking. The longer that even a masked person spends in a space, the greater the chance of inhaling an infectious dose. Anyone with close contact with many people — for example transportation, restaurant or similar workers — should be wearing a high-quality, individually fit respirator, such as an N95 filtering facepiece respirator.

It seems like an odd way to demand honesty by boarding a jet knowing you will be required to wear a mask, and then refusing to wear a mask. Did 2,200 people since January of this year board jets just to "demand honesty"? We're they all making political statements? It doesn't make sense.
I think many if us could agree with your logic to a point. What we want to know is how YOU know they were all 2,200 of them were Republicans?

You do understand that is the same scientific/statisitcal logic as the claim "all white people are born racists."

Your right. I don't "know". I have been conditioned to equate anti-maskers with Trumpees. And, as a broad generalization, I still see that as accurate. Also, I do not believe anyone is "born" a racist. I believe racism is taught.

Insults. Derogatory comments. Oversimplified generalizations past off as " proof" and absurd "gotcha" moments. These are the cornerstones of every MAGA propaganda pusher. Now they're insisting the "science" behind masks has "finally" exonerated them. But not so fast.
According to Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech who specializes in airborne transmission of viruses, the COVID-19 particle is indeed around 0.1 microns in size, but it is always bonded to something larger.
“There is never a naked virus floating in the air or released by people,” stated Professor Marr.
The virus attaches to water droplets or aerosols (i.e. really small droplets) that are generated by breathing, talking, coughing, etc. These consist of water, mucus protein and other biological material and are all larger than 1 micron,
which will be collected by N95 respirator filters with very high efficiency,” ..... Also we don't know how many microns of covid it takes to infect someone, so the "science" is still inconclusive because of the variables that we still don't know. .....

Boston, MA is a bastion of Democratic liberalism, these kids were from Boston. If CrackHo was still around I'm sure these kids would all be traced back to the only families in the state of Mass that are card carrying members of the GOP :whistling:




Full story at the link about but here are some highlights.

American Airlines cancels Bahamas flight after teens refuse to wear masks

American Airlines was forced to cancel a flight from North Carolina to the Bahamas after a group of 30 teenagers refused to wear face masks - and they were then forced to sleep in the airport overnight because they were too young to check into a hotel.
Flight 893 was scheduled to depart from Charlotte Douglas International Airport enroute to Nassau on Monday when passengers say the group of teens from Boston started being 'very obnoxious'.
Fellow passengers say the group, aged 17 and 18, refused to wear their masks as required.
The group were believed to be on their way to the Bahamas for a graduation trip...
'It was bad. Firstly they were yelling, they were cussing. They were being very obnoxious,' Malik Banks, who was sitting next to the group, told WSOC-TV.
Fellow passengers... say the group, aged 17 and 18, refused to wear their masks as required. The group were believed to be on their way to the Bahamas for a graduation trip
'It wasn't all of them... I'd say 75 to 80 percent of them were being terrible kids.'
