People who 'abuse' the carry on rules aren't too cheap to check luggage -- they've either had luggage lost or stolen, so they've learned that they have to carry it on if they want to have it at all. Why don't you get ticked off at airhead airlines that send suitcases to Seattle when you're flying to New York?!

I can't imagine anyone getting away with "abusing" anthing flying at this point. There are specific maximum weight and size guidelines, and forget about contents. You'' never be "tweezed" to death. What's next, cavity searches by those morons? I'd like to see THEIR background checks.

I'm tired of people blaming the IRS for their financial difficulty. Are you the golden child, exempt from following the same rules as every other tax-paying citizen? Take accountability, and quit blaming people for the situation you put yourself in. Yeah, most of the country is in debt for being frivolous and unrealistic about their finances. Get over it, learn to budget, and quit blaming the economy. Loser!

agreed but you are waisting your time trying to reach these moochers and parasites.

I live by a budget each month, I do not live a frivolous or unrealistic lifesytle. I do not own fancy cars, big screen tv's or a fancy house. I do not have alot of debt, I don't charge things that I cannot afford, I save money and I tithe 10% to my church and extra to charaties.

And I agree that the IRS takes way to much of my money. There is so much that I could do with that $1000 bucks a month in deductions.

We need the fair tax. If you make $3000 dollars a month then you take home $3000 dollars a month.

To the person ticked at the person who doesn't check bags:

I always tried my best to use carry on even before the fees. Checking a bag is a huge waste of time and unnecessary risk. If you are going somewhere for a few days or even a week, there is no reason you can't fit everything in a carry on.

To the person ticked about the 2 year old at 'Girl's night out'. Tell your friend she's not invited anymore until daddy can watch the kid or until she finds a sitter. I'm sure if you communicated nicely with her, she might understand, otherwise she's not your friend and you don't need her there anyway.

So you want no tax. Say bye bye to police departments. Fire departments. Road maintenance. Traffic lights. Public education. Prisons.

No thanks.

Why do tourists expect Disney to supply hand sanitizer at every attraction? There's soap and water in every bathroom. If you expect the park to supply this, then admission fees will be even higher. Just bring your own.
Could it perhaps be tourist that just came off a Disney cruise? The cruise industry has taken a very proactive stance in the prevention of communicable sickness. Throughout the ships, at strategic locations are automatic hand sanitizer dipensers. If you try to walk into the buffet without sanitizing, you will be flagged down. They make sure that everyone who comes in sanitizes. So if the ships are doing it, chances are people expect the same thing at the park owned by the same company.

Yes, Cavity searches are coming. On TV last night I just got a glimpse of some kind of new screen that we're supposed to walk through at the airport which will do a sort of Xray of our entire body and will reveal "Everything" in or under our clothing leaving nothing to the imagination.

I'd better get to the gym then. That could be somewhat embarrassing.

And wearing worn out undies will REALLY not work out. LOL...

You need to get something straight. The IRS does not set the tax rates, congress does. The IRS is only the collections agent.

I think the claim can be made that it really isn't making you any safer.

Well, maybe we will like it. What are your measurements and what airport do you usually use for travel. LOL

I'm sorry.... is it wrong to bring carry on luggage? Last time I checked it wasn't illegal or improper behavior. I like to not check my luggage if possible ever since the airline lost my bags one time. So, it may not be because someone is cheap. What you need to do is calm the F down and mind your own business.

And so what if they ARE cheap. The airlines are raping customers with every fee imaginable. More power to the people who do what they can to save their nickels.

That was actually a story on the front of one section in the paper just a few days ago.

Hm. Well you see, Florida doesn't have an income tax and manages to fund all these things already. The FairTax doesn't eliminate taxes, just collects them differently: a single consumption tax vs. the present various income taxes. The main difference is that the income tax is a disincentive to earn money. It is also byzantine to the point of complete impenetrability to the taxpayers. The FairTax is a disincentive to spend money, plus it practically removes government interference in private financial matters. It is also far easier to understand how much you're giving to the Federal government, which is why most politicians oppose it. They are very much interested in obscuring how deeply they're in your wallet. "I didn't pay any taxes this year, I got a refund!" Music to their ears.

Yeah, but sometimes people just want to make sure their luggage ends up in the same location that they are flying into. After all, airlines are notorious for sending luggage to the wrong destination. I've experienced this personally. When you have one clearly marked tag on your bag(s) and some incompetent moron sends it (them) to the wrong destination, it's an aggravating
inconvenience.
