'...as Bob [Brown] shook hands with our senior U.S. senator in what should have been nothing but a gracious business setting, Reid said: "I hope you go out of business."'
They could have surly, rude, inefficient, ESL/E3L/ESWITP security personnel who do not profile and are easily bribed. They could have affirmative action pilots who cannot fly but do use hallucinogens. They could buy the smallest, most energy efficient, made somewhere in the world in an unregulated country in quality-control-less factories by uneducated, untrained, inexperienced, not-security-vetted workers, eco-friendly airplanes. (We call them unicorns.) They could have small, tasteless, stale vegetrarian (not sic) inflight 'meals' served by surly, rude, ugly, fat, hairy lesbian flight attendants. (I think the A-rabs call them "goats".)
We could have heavily armed, serious-but-polite, former Israeli security guards who profile the camel dung out of terrorist wannabes. We could have politically incorrect, former military pilots who can fly the brand new, made in the USA, Boeing airliner up its own APU -- who have black belts and are heavily armed so they can also kick the camel dung out of any terrorist wannabes. We could have large, flavorful, fresh steak-and-seafood inflight culinary extravaganzas prepared at your aisle and served by young, polite, handsome, fit, perfectly coiffed flight attendants -- who have black belts and are heavily armed so they can also kick the camel dung out of any terrorist wannabes.
Seriously, I want my security to be secure, my pilots to be pilots, and, my inflight safety personnel to be inflight safety personnel, and, if that means they need to be able to profile and to kick the camel dung out of a terrorist wannabe, that's the airline I want.
