United Airlines axing its hub in Cleveland

Smisek said United would reduce its number of daily Cleveland flights by about 60%, keeping most of its "mainline" flights at Cleveland but slashing about 70% of those flown by the company's United Express regional partners.

Once all of the cuts are phased in by June, United's Cleveland schedule will drop from about 199 daily departures to 72.

United will still operate six mainland U.S. hubs without Cleveland. They are Chicago O'Hare, Denver, Houston Bush Intercontinental, Los Angeles, Newark Liberty and San Francisco.

In a sliver of good news for Cleveland, the city will have more nonstop routes and flights on United than a typical non-hub city -- even after the cuts. But Smisek said those will be aimed at passengers heading to or from Cleveland, not at connecting passengers.

United will continue to offer nonstop flights between Cleveland and 20 destinations, flying to its six reamining hubs and 14 other cities. That's down significantly, however, from the 61 nonstop destinations that United and its United Express affiliates currently serve from Cleveland, according to The Plain Dealer of Cleveland.


On the bright side, it will be easier to find parking at the airport!

So women over 50 can't get pregnant?

This is a good one.

My wife went to the pharmacy to fill her prescription for birth control, it has been free for the last year thanks to Obamacare.

They charged her $28 bucks for her refill this month. When she questioned it, they told her that it wasn't covered for women over 50.


According to Healtcare.gov:
8.Contraception: Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling, as prescribed by a health care provider for women with reproductive capacity (not including abortifacient drugs). This does not apply to health plans sponsored by certain exempt “religious employers.”


women with reproductive capacity is not defined as under 50!

January 16, 1991

That is the date we attacked Iraq the first time.

They want to blame the violence in Iraq on Obama when it was the two bu$h's who destroyed that nation.

I was cleaning out some of my files when I ran across a calendar page that I had tore out and wrote the following:

"United States Declared war on Saddam Hussein, Leader of Iraq. War began at 5:45 PM C.S.T. President was George Bush"

At that time we didn't use the H W because Jr. was still at the party.

Someone needs to remind the fucking media who started this shit in Iraq and how long it kept going. And stop this "they died in vein" shit.

Bill Maher has new rule for Duck Dynasty-following Americans

Maher left his best statement for the last new rule: using the Duck Dynasty fiasco as his analogy for what Republicans have done to this country with smoke and mirrors, he had some advice.

“And finally, a resolution I have been asking America to make for a long time,” he said. “Be more cynical. Be less easily fooled. Case in point, all the people that are fans of these guys, heroes to all the rural heartland traditional values gun nuts out there. Except here is what we recently found out these guys really look like before they got their TV show, preppy assholes at the golf club wearing Tommy Bahama. That’s right. It is all an act, fat cats pretending to be just folks. And you fell for it. Take a hint, Tea Partiers. This is what the Republican Party is always doing to you.”

Talk about closing the barn door after the horse got out - West Virgina to regulate chemicals?

So they destroyed the environment and now they want to protect it?

Legislation Proposed In WV To Regulate Chemicals

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin on Monday proposed tighter regulations for chemical storage facilities after a spill contaminated the water supply for 300,000 people.

Tomblin, the Democratic governor, urged passage of a chemical storage regulatory program. The bill aims to address shortcomings that allowed 7,500 gallons of coal-cleaning chemicals to seep into the Elk River on Jan. 9. Freedom Industries, which owned the plant that leaked the chemicals, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Friday.

Freedom Industries' safety flaws, including a last-resort containment wall filled with cracks, went largely undetected, because as a facility that neither manufactured chemicals, produced emissions, or stored chemicals underground, it was not subject to environmental regulations, state Department of Environmental Protection officials have said. The chemical that spilled also wasn't deemed hazardous enough for additional regulation.

The material flowed 1.5 miles downstream and made it into West Virginia American Water Company's water supply.

Below-ground tanks storing chemicals face environmental regulations, but ones above the surface fall into a regulatory loophole, officials have said. The department made several routine visits to the Charleston site between 2002 and 2012, but found no violations.

To Staples goes the spoils - Postal Service Privatization

The U.S. Postal Service is moving into Staples stores in another effort aimed at boosting business through partnerships with retail giants.

The new centers will be operated by outside employees, offering most postal products including stamps, mail services and package delivery.

USPS will be the exclusive mailing and shipping option at those Staples locations.

Earlier this month, the agency announced it would deliver packages on Sundays for Amazon, one of the world’s largest online retailers.

The agreement with Staples is part of the USPS’s “retail partner expansion program.” The first openings will take place in just five regions: San Francisco, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Worchester, Mass., where the company is headquartered, according to Going Postal.

Gas Mask: Is this how we will have to live in the future?

Dangerous giant smog cloud chokes Beijing

I know, it's China again, but with the deniers of climate change, is the whole world headed for this type of atmosphere?

Air pollution readings spiked across China's capital Beijing on Thursday, prompting residents to don air masks and offices and homes to put electric air purifiers on overdrive.

Commuters across Beijing found themselves cloaked in a thick, gray haze as air pollution monitors across the city registered readings over 20 times the recommended exposure levels suggested by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau readings Thursday for PM 2.5 – air particulate smaller than 2.5 microns blamed for a range of severe respiratory ailments – registered over 500 micrograms per cubic meter. The WHO recommends no more than 25 micrograms per cubic meter.


I flew into Beijing once, when you couldn't see the terminal until the plane pulled up to the gate. The hotel where I was staying, you couldn't see the buildings across the street. The air was a weird color of green and it burned your eyes to be outside for very long.
