Hvis du ikke kan være sikker på om du kan fly trygt etter kjøp av flybillett, så ikke fly med United inntil Donald Trump har gått av.

14. april 2017 13:58

President Trump sa at flyselskap ikke bør hindres fra overbooking.

Et flyselskap er et selskap som driver med salg av flybilletter for at folk kan reise fritt fra destinasjon til ankomst.

Hvis du har kjøpt en billett til flytur, skal du få lov til å reise på billetten du kjøpte fritt i et kapitalistisk marked.

Vi skal ha konkurranse på flytrafikk og flere flyselskap enn United.

Donald Trump hevder at problemet ikke er at Dao ble dratt ut av flyet, men at flyselskapene bør få lov til å betale folk kompensasjon for å forlate flyet, som er en mangel på menneskelig forståelse og sunn forretningslogikk.

Dersom man kjøper en billett til en flyreise, så skal flyselskapet transportere passasjeren som har kjøpt og betalt fra avgang til adkomst!

Organisatorene av protestene 19. desember - inkludert Americans Take Action, Electoral College Petition, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, og Hamilton Electors, i tillegg til Democracy Spring - sa at de vil forsøke å endre resultatet til tross for lange odds.

Demokraten Hillary Clinton utkonkurrerte i følge CNN republikanske Donald Trump med nesten 2.9 millioner stemmer, med 65,844,954 (48.2%) i motsetning til Trumps 62,979,879 (46.1%) i følge revidert og sertifisert endelig valgresultat fra alle 50 stater og District of Columbia.

Thiel har argumentert mot college-utdannelse i USA og mot kvinnelig stemmerett.

Thiel har saksøkt og stanset publikasjonen av Gawker. Gawker skriver avslutningsvis: "En løgn med en milliard dollar bak seg er sterkere enn sannheten".

2. desember 2016

USAs neste president Trump forsøker å hindre naturlig økonomisk konkurranse ved hjelp av klassisk og uøkonomisk, nasjonalistisk og politisk proteksjon av bedrifter som ønsker å flagge ut fra USA.

Nasjonal, økonomisk proteksjon har historisk sett ikke ført til noen økonomisk fremgang for nasjonene som har satset på økonomisk proteksjon og politisk detaljstyring.

Politisk styring og eierskap i bedrifter har tidligere ført til 2 verdenskriger pga. eskalering av problemer som følge av forsøk på politisk styring og kontroll av naturlige økonomiske prosesser og økonomisk aktivitet.

President Trump said that airlines shouldn't be prevented from overselling!

An airline is a company that operates by selling air tickets so people can travel freely from destination to arrival. If you have bought a ticket to the trip, you should be permitted to travel on the ticket you bought freely.

There should be competition between airlines and more air lines than United.

Trump claims that the problem is not that Dao was dragged off the plane, but that airlines should be allowed to pay people compensation to leave the plane, which is a lack of human understanding and fair business logic.

If you buy a plane ticket, you are going to stay on the plane for the entire flight!
