There should be a call nationwide for a boycott of Spirit Airlines! And why do you ask? Read this horrible story and you will see.
Dying St. Pete man says Spirit Airlines won’t refund his ticket….
Spirit Airlines will not issue a refund to a dying veteran who found out he has terminal cancer two weeks after he bought his plane ticket. WFLA-TV’s Jeff Patterson reports.
Jerry Meekins, who is battling cancer, has a new foe: Spirit Airlines.
Meekins recently purchased an airline ticket from Spirit Airlines to visit his daughter in New Jersey. “Two weeks after I bought the ticket, I found out I was terminal,” Meekins, a Vietnam veteran, told NBC affiliate WFLA-TV in Tampa, Fla.
Meekins says his doctors advised him not to fly. But when he asked Spirit Airlines for a refund, they refused.
When contacted by WFLA-TV, Spirit Airlines issued this statement: “Our reservations are non-refundable, which means we don’t do refunds and we are not going to issue Mr. Meekins a refund.”
(there should be a law against what this airline company is doing to this poor man!)
Then we find another major screwup by the government agency TSA that shows how out of freaking control these agents really are!
A 7-year-old girl with cerebral palsy was targeted by the TSA this week when her crutches and leg braces set off the airport screeners at JFK. Dina Frank’s parents claim the screening agents were particularly aggressive during an initial patdown of their daughter. They say the TSA then caused the family to miss their flight by requiring Dina to return to the screening area for additional inspection after they’d already been released to their gate.
“They’re harassing people,” said Dina’s father, Dr. Johsua Frank. “This is totally misguided policy. Yes, I understand that TSA is in charge of national security and there’s all these threats. For her to be singled out, it’s crazy.”

This guy? I hope and pray they find his ass guilty and he is thrown into prison for a whole bunch of years!
‘She’s a crazy slut’: John Edwards ‘launched verbal attack on mistress when he found out she was pregnant’, claims ex-aide
- Former Democratic presidential contender called a ‘master manipulator’
- Harvard law graduate Cate advising her father during trial
- He faces a lengthy prison sentence if convicted over $1m donations ‘to hide his affair from family’
- Andrew Young testifies that Edwards told him the money was legal
- Was ‘very angry’ when he found out about Hunter’s pregnancy
- Said there was only ‘one-in-three chance’ it was his
Former senator John Edwards launched a verbal attack on his mistress Rielle Hunter when he found out she was pregnant, calling her a ‘crazy slut’, his former aide testified today.
Taking the stand for the second time, Andrew Young told the court Edwards was ‘very angry and concerned’ when he found out about the baby in 2007 and told Young there was only a one-in-three chance the baby was his.
He also told the court about the intricate system of check writing used to hide funds given to Edwards my millionaire Rachel ‘Bunny’ Mellon, which he said ‘felt and smelled wrong’ even though he was assured it was all legal.

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (Germany), 500 previously unpublished fairy tales were discovered. The tales, which date to the 1800s, originally were collected by a historian named Franz Xaver von Schonwerth, “a contemporary of the Grimm brothers.” Now selected tales have been introduced to the world in a book published by Erika Eichenseer, a cultural curator in the Bavarian region of Oberpfalz.
Eichenseer says the fairy tales aren’t just for kids: “Their main purpose was to help young adults on their path to adulthood, showing them that dangers and challenges can be overcome through virtue, prudence and courage.”
Clearly, as evidenced by one tale of a maiden who escapes a witch by transforming herself into a pond. The witch then lies on her stomach and drinks all the water, swallowing the young girl, who uses a knife to cut her way out of the witch.

When a nude/seminude woman poses for a photograph while
covering her nipples and/or breasts with her hands.
A video surfaced on Wednesday showing a regional administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency comparing his agency’s philosophy with respect to regulation of oil and gas companies to brutal tactics employed by the ancient Roman army to intimidate its foes into submission.
EPA’s “philosophy of enforcement,” said EPA’s Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, is “kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean: they’d go into little Turkish towns somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they’d run into, and they’d crucify them.”
“That town was really easy to manage for the next few years,” Armendariz added.
After all when their is algae and spinach there is no longer a need for fossil fuels!
Never f*ck with Israel!
(Times of Israel) — Israel reacted with unusually sharp criticism to a British newspaper’s designation of Tel Aviv as Israel’s capital, calling it a “blatant lie” that insults people’s intelligence.
On Sunday, the London-based Guardian newspaper ran a correction of a photo caption it had run two days earlier that described Jews in Jerusalem as being in Israel’s capital.
“The caption on a photograph featuring passengers on a tram in Jerusalem observing a two-minute silence for Yom HaShoah, a day of remembrance for the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust, wrongly referred to the city as the Israeli capital,” the correction read. “The Guardian style guide states: ‘Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel; Tel Aviv is.’”
Indeed, the newspaper’s style guide includes the above entry, adding that designating Jerusalem as capital is “a mistake we have made more than once.”
Foreign Ministry deputy spokesperson Ilana Stein told The Times of Israel: “Actually, it’s the Guardian who owes an explanation to its readers for publishing something that cannot be described but as a blatant lie. When a claim is so factually wrong as to insult intelligence, then unfortunately the word ‘lie’ is not too harsh, and one cannot but wonder about the motivation of such a conceit.”
How dumb some people that are elected to office really are!
Just like the unions do to businesses etal, Obama is giving them the old fashioned shakedown!
(Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama’s political advisers are pressing labor unions to contribute to the Democratic convention in September to cover a fundraising shortfall resulting from their self-imposed ban on corporate donations, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Democratic officials gave representatives of the major U.S. unions, including the AFL-CIO, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the United Auto Workers, a tour of the convention sites in Charlotte, North Carolina, April 23 in advance of a request for donations, according to the two people, who requested anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss internal strategy.
The three-day convention will culminate in Obama’s re- nomination in Bank of America Stadium on Sept. 6. So far, the host committee in Charlotte is roughly halfway to its $36.6 million goal.
Four years ago, unions contributed more than $8 million to the Democratic convention in Denver, according to financial disclosure reports.
Jeff Hauser, a spokesman for the AFL-CIO, declined to comment on the new request.
