Burning question about airplane passengers who create a brouhaha over not masking:

Their motivation, actually.

Do they mask when coming into the airport, checking luggage, sitting in waiting area, getting the boarding pass, and, most importantly, entering and sitting on the plane?

Surely they know they have to mask for some, if not all, the preflight stuff. And they know if the flight requires them.

So what is the point of starting a fight in the seating area? Haven't they watched the news and seen the consequences of previous rule breaking passengers??

I don't get it.

2 weeks ago trump's super spreader event was here in Ala.

New cases have 7 day average of over 5,000 now. Been climbing daily since Aug. 25th.

deaths are still relatively low, but we know now that some cases become terminal weeks after infection.

Alabama population is 4.9 million as of 2019 count.


and the season for Alabama's 2nd major religion, football, is upon us.

Nancy Pelosi Announces Vote On Bill To Codify Roe v. Wade
The House speaker said she’s responding to the Supreme Court’s “cowardly, dark-of-night decision” decision to greenlight Texas’ extreme anti-abortion law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Thursday that she plans to bring up legislation that would codify Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that protects the right to choose to have an abortion, as soon as the House returns from recess this month.

“Upon our return, the House will bring up Congresswoman Judy Chu’s Women’s Health Protection Act to enshrine into law reproductive health care for all women across America,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Her announcement comes a day after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed an extreme Texas law to go into effect that criminalizes abortion at six weeks and deputizes citizens to enforce the ban.

The House speaker railed against the Supreme Court’s decision, saying its “cowardly, dark-of-night decision” to let the Texas law take effect “delivers catastrophe to women in Texas, particularly women of color and women from low-income communities.”
