This should be the end of United. Airlines should NOT be allowed to overbook. If someone does not show up and they can not fill the seat then fly with empty seats. I think we should all try and make sure that all the seats on United are empty.
My God … I can not believe how stupid the Trump Administration people are … How are we going to last as a nation for four years of this?

The Department of Homeland Security just outlined the Trump Administration’s standards for extreme vetting. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tells you how this will kill tourism in the US. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go
“Foreigners who want to visit the U.S., even for a short trip, could be forced to disclose contacts on their mobile phones, social-media passwords and financial records, and to answer probing questions about their ideology, according to Trump administration officials conducting a review of vetting procedures.”
“The threshold for probably being a psychopath is 30 points,” said Olbermann, adding Trump may “still finish life as high as 36 points, since two of his questions pertain to criminal record and violation of parole, and there’s plenty of time for him on both.”
Olbermann used the checklist ― a clinical tool that helps to diagnose psychopathy ― to conduct a similar assessment on Trump in July 2016. The then-presidential candidate scored equally high numbers. The difference between then and now?
“In a president, the problem escalates to, you know, the possible end of the world,” Olbermann said.

THE MORNING EMAIL
Start your workday the right way with the news that matters most.
President Trump’s budget would cut $1.3 billion from the U.S. Coast Guard! The USCG has a budget of about $9 billion. President Trump wants to take that USCG money and give it to the Department of Homeland Security. He wants to give that department a 6% increase and make their budget $43.8 billion.
President Trump talks about giving the “military” more money. President Trump talks about his love of and support of law enforcement.
Back in the early 70s, God I am old, I worked for a security company as a patrol officer. I forget the name of the bar but it was in Olathe (KS) and near the Olathe Naval Air Station. I had to go into the bar at about 2 AM and clear everyone out. The bar always had a lot of people from the military base. I did not look forward to closing a bar filled with marines but it was my job. I can remember a few young USMC men saying they were not going to leave. I was in my 30s. I think any one of those 18 year old marines could have kicked my ass. I just told them it was my job and they were done drinking for the night. If they got up from their chair I just turned the chair over and put it on their table. I made it without getting into a fight. But I was glad when I moved to a different job.
I wonder if that is the bar where the Indian man was killed the other day. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was shot at a bar in Olathe. It was a hate crime.
A policial hate site on YouTube called “Trump Truth Watch” made a very sick YouTube video about President Trump and his daughter Ivanka. You all know I am NOT a President Trump supporter but that video caused me to create and post this video.
I made this ranting and raving video a couple of days ago.

Exposing the truth about the Trumps and all their allies. I'm into politics, conspiracies and the truth. I also post news clips related to the president, including of Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and Stephen Miller.
Just a regular 16-year-old from Birmingham trying to make a change!
“Around the world, there are many people with hearing impairments. This doesn’t mean that they are necessarily deaf — they may instead have severe hearing loss. Someone in my family, for instance, has to wear hearing aids. For these people, captioning on videos (text displayed on screen) can be a necessity, making it possible to enjoy a TV show or movie. Heck, it can be used by people without hearing issues too; they may need to mute their TV as to not wake family members.
Nowadays, captioning extends to internet videos too, including the very popular YouTube. In fact, today, Google announces that it has exceeded 1 billion captioned videos! While this is certainly an amazing accomplishment, the service’s automatic speech recognition can sometimes be very wrong — even comically so.””
About: I got my first computer in 1978. I set up a computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1982. You had to dial in at 300 baud. A national magazine picked my BBS as one of the ten best sites. I was blogging before the word blog had been invented. People think the first blog was invented in 1995. They are wrong I was doing it in 1982.
When the rest of the world got around to inventing the world wide web I moved my BBS to the web. Yes, I been online for over 32 years.
You have found one of the very first online sites!
I was doing this before Google (1998), before YouTube (2005), Yahoo (1994) and all the rest of them.
You have found one of the fathers of all this that we all enjoy so much.
Welcome and enjoy and hang out with Jim Howard. He has been waiting for you.
One of the first online sites, one of the first blogs and one of the first webcam sites.
