The Spirit Airline Boycotters Are The Real Thugs

All the judge had to hear in the Spirit Airlines vs. Vietnam veteran case was, well just that, dying Vietnam war veteran vs. Spirit Airlines tightfisted CEO Ben Baldanza. In fact these were the precise terms used by Foxnews reporter J. Miller. However the judge in this case ended up being thirty thousand Facebookers threatening a boycott against Spirit Airlines.

 

Jerry Meekins, a Vietnam vet and cancer patient was told by his doctor not to fly. Spirit Airlines is a no-frills airline and charges for 'every extra' in order to offer rock bottom prices. This is were the problem began. Spirit Airlines has a strict, well publicized no-refund policy and Jerry is a Vietnam vet with cancer. Seems like an open and shut case, Jerry wins.

 

I have nothing but respect and admiration for a man like Jerry Meekins. However if I had the chance to talk with him I would explain why I believe he has responsibility in this disagreement as well. Passengers flying Spirit Airlines are aware of their no-refund policy and accept the added risk in exchange for a rock bottom fare. Many of you are now calling me a heartless bastard only worried about the evil rich, tightfisted CEO. But wait a minute, aren't we now taking the exact same position as Nancy Pelosi and the libs? The same position we rail about everyday as conservatives.

 

But Ben and Jerry are not the only ones involved here, I'm involved too. I fly Spirit Airlines all the time and one of the very reasons I choose Spirit is because I don't value the extras the same as other airline passengers do. I prefer to pay as little as possible to get from point A to point B and then spend the savings on a nice dinner or a new Callaway driver. Until last week I thought my relationship with Ben was absolutely perfect. I would give him a small amount of money and he would fly me where I wanted to go. But that was before I was told that Ben and I were doing it all wrong.

 

Ben was offering a service that was below the acceptable minimums for air travel. Now wait, don't minimum levels of service only apply to health care. With Obamacare I'm not allowed to purchase a bare bones major-medical-only policy. You can't just have major medical, then go to Target and give the clerk nine dollars for contraceptives.

 

Now it seems I'm being told I can't purchase air travel a-la-carte either. Jerry told Foxnews he appreciated Ben's willingness to refund his ticket out of his own pocket and write a check for $5,000 to the Wounded Warriors Foundation. But “I just want them to agree to take each case and review it, because there are others in my situation and they deserve to be heard”.

 

I have to disagree with Jerry here. This is exactly what Ben is trying to avoid at any cost. He can't determine whether a stay-at-home-mom deserves a refund but a single-mom-lawyer does not, without it affecting ticket prices. Ben also made the point that Spirit is often the only airline many passengers can afford to fly.

 

This story hit a nerve with me because the left's reflex is always to condemn the evil CEO. This time it seemed people on my side of the political divide had the same reflex.

Tom Fitton: Trump Was Victimized, Targeted by FBI,
Clinton Campaign, Russian Operatives, Obama Admin
and Fusion GPS

Judicial Watch founder and President Tom Fitton hammered the corrupt Mueller investigation on FOX and Friends Weekend on Saturday morning. Tom blasted the corrupt Obama Justice Department and declared the Trump-Russia collusion investigation over after Friday’s sham announcement of the indictment of 13 Russians.

Tom Fitton calls out the corrupt Justice Department on their criminal activity against candidate and President Trump.

Tom Fitton: At the end we have the massive Russia investigation that finds no collusion with the Trump Campaign. I don’t understand why we are still talking about a Special Counsel investigating the president in light of this indictment… Look those who say the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians are going to have to start providing evidence other than the Clinton-DNC dossier. Look this was in the news this week. We had the Susan Rice memo indicting Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Sally Yates, James Comey and Susan Rice in a conspiracy to get Trump on Russia. You had information that the number four at the Obama Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, hid information on his relationship with the Clinton Campaign cash machine – basically Fusion GPS that was collaborating with the Russia to launch dirt or really defamatory dirt against President Trump into the FBI-DOJ apparatus. And now you have this indictment of Russians abroad, an indictment that’s never going to see the light of day in short of trial because they’re never going to come here. It’s never going to be tried. We’re never going to find out whether anything in the indictment’s true. And what would they rather be talking about? This indictment where they found, despite all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, not one American colluded with the Russians.

Why isn’t this Justice Department looking into the abuse of the FISA process? Look the Russians were trying to make it clear to the Clinton Camp that they had dirt on Trump and they were going to use it against him. And all of that was false. And Trump was victimized and the FBI, rather than trying to protect him, used it as a pretext working with the Clinton campaign to target him under the corrupt Obama administration. Look this indictment shows the Russian scandal is over as far as Trump is concerned.

 

Obama is center of anti-@RealDonaldTrump effort -- when will he be questioned on the Clinton-DNC dossier? And, do what do we have the FBI for -- the shooter screw-up? New Lawsuits on Unmasking, the DNC Hack and Comey DOC. My @JudicialWatch update. https://youtu.be/h0WB08SHmuQ
