Well he has a lawncare service and has several illegal workers in his employment, paid less than minimum wage, this he has hinted at this MORE than once! He thinks running a lawn service is exactly the same as running an airline. Then again after you cross the line there is no turning back or regaining ones credibility. Such an interesting character, I bet he was a wife beater too. Most scabs were.

Yep! Me too. Apparently, those union FAs were highly effective at destroying that airline; and a few others as well.
No bad management and poor decisions and plain old lying had a great deal to do with it. Tactics I am SURE you are MORE than familiar with by your posts on Topix. TTFN how a nice whatever. CTS...

You and Doofy both have it wrong. It was Northwest Orient. Northwest is one word, like South by Southwest, and North by Northwest, a movie.
The Orient was dropped because Asians found Orient offensive, so they went back to just NW as they were before they greatly expanded into the Pacific post WWII.
Yes, it was the FA the conducted a hostile takeover, and sat in BLDG A and sold the real estate, the airplanes, and other assets that the once frugal airlines once owned putting the airline a financial straight from which they never recovered. And then one of them spent all the proceeds on running for Governor in California in 1998.
Stick to what you know on your comments; NOTHING.
How are those GED classes going for you?
Love you DD! He thinks running a weed wacker is the same as running an airline,(eyes rolling)

<quoted text>In fact I am quite a real girl and Marcus is in fact my VERY real husband, we would love to meet you in person and discuss your online etiquette and treatment of others if you like. Unlike the nurse you chase in your scooter around the home, Elmyra the pre- op tranny. You have never had a female respond in kind to your foul remarks and posts. Take your meds or you will end up in soiled depends strapped to the bed OLD man.
Send Marcus....if there is such a person......you would not want to be there to witness such an event. The excitement could cause a miscarriage. Etiquette or code of conduct? Apparently nothing of the sort rubbed off on you while a Swab Jockey, nor as a Stewardess with the Puddle Jumper. I never back down from threats or challenges....subliminal or outright; and I am well equipped to handle whatever comes down the pike. Some clarification can likely be found in OLD posts a few years back. Please TRY to remember the diatribes posted hereon are done so in jest. Please give it a try. TTFN

Speaking of credibility.....I never, ever, mentioned, or hinted at, being in the lawn care business.....and I AM NOT. No illegal immigrant workers, legal or illegal. Way back in 2006 or 2007, I mentioned mowing the lawn one hot Saturday afternoon when the landscapers failed to show. Since then.....you et al have tried repeatedly to make that my life's work. Well.....the fingerprints of my profession are all over this thread, but YOU, Leona, Slim, Clabber Head, Buffy/Marcus et al have tried to put me in that lowly box because none of you guys are mentally swift enough to figure out exactly what I do in this great life. Is it envy, or is it that people put others down to make themselves feel superior? Airline FAs, and former FAs, should never put anyone down since it is likely little is low enough to make them have such a lofty mental state. No offense. It is what it is, nothing less, nothing more. Now about wife beating.....never.....no wife......saw way too many witches destroy good mens' lives. With a record of ZERO for FOUR you should avoid reference to ANYTHING remotely related to marriage or spousal abuse. Again no offense.....neighbor. CTS

Ok! I appreciate his active duty service to this country.....completely without caveats. As a politician, I'm on the fence regarding CH. But as the nominee for SoD.......totally out of his league, allowed himself to be embarassed in the grinding process, IMO. Anything more? Have a great weekend. CTS.

The point is Weazle Face was doing the grinding, and he has no credibility himself. It is hypocritical of him.

I think it amusing to hear all these GOPers whine about military industrial job cuts in such states as NH,VA and AZ if the government does indeed force cut backs this coming Friday.

Their point of view, and concerns, proves exactly what I have always expressed on this thread; the Military Industrial Complex is nothing more than a Socialistic Job Program and exactly the same scheme Germany used in the 30s to revive their economy.......a false economy.

Were you over my way a few days/weeks back? Reason being.....an elderly woman driving a Caddy darn near took out several vehicles while yakking on her phone and zipping along at a good clip. Her removable scalp had slipped to one side revealing her bald head. Are you whipping around in a Caddy these day? Was that You? LMAO.

All of this rant can be tossed right back at you. Except for the marriage part, you lack the ability to commit...or people are smart enough to know better than to try something with someone who lacks passion for ANYTHING but the GOP. CTS..

Doubtful. I do not frequent beer joints, trailer parks or cross burnings. I actually thought I saw YOU in the local HEB, complete in a white cowboy hat, plaid western shirt, bolo tie, and those large black sneakers with the Velcro, and polyester pants with grease stains. This "gentleman"was yelling at the National Enquirer display and poking people with his cane. I said "Brown Sugar!?!?!?" All he said back was "I'm EASY"! I simply took it to be you and carried on with my cart and my selected items. I do not have a "Caddy" of any type in my fleet of vehicles but if I add one I will alert you to my purchase of such! Nice try! Just sit back and watch your movie of choice or the one chosen for you. TTFN

Funny story, but that WAS NOT me. Are you certain that was not your cowboy? Did you have your spetacles on at the time? I don't much care for HEB. I'm a Walmart kinda guy where prices are far cheaper for the same stuff. I try to steer clear of Costco, HEB and Target. Status-minded suckers shop at those places and pay about 40% more for the privilege.....and of course the status. CTS.

Not sure I fully understand all that is meant by COMMIT.....and sure as heck not gonna take a chance and find out in Family Court. Am I correct, Harris County had to build a new storage annex to house all your files from that court? CTS.
