Justly Requited

United Airlines Forcibly Drags Doctor Off Plane After Overbooking (Video)

“For the flying public, the episode served as a stark reminder that a seat isn’t guaranteed until a flight is airborne. Almost half a million passengers on major U.S. airlines got bumped last year, but most of them volunteered to lose their seats in return for credits for future flights.”

The BLOTUS, loud-mouthed and short-sighted,
In my dreams, would be justly requited:
His healthcare would be
What he tried to sell me,
And he’d travel in coach on United.
