    Re: our people in washington???

    BTW ask yourself this, do you really want to loose your Constitution? When the 2nd Amendment goes away so will the rest. They want me to register to utilize the 2nd Amendment but not to vote with an ID. Go figure......Jetspray

    Re: our people in washington???

    It is no wonder the congress persons do not know much about travel, they don't even know that there are different laws in different countries. They think our money is their's anyway, and they spend it on junk like a "kid in a candy store, who never exercises and wonders why they are gaining so much weight"....Jetspray

    our people in washington???

    Subject: Fw: Washington, DC Airport ticket agent

    1. These are hard to believe. And in each case naming the guilty party a DC 'airport ticket agent' offers some examples
    of why the US is in so much trouble! (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by
    being near the window. (On an airplane!)


    2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman's (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to
    explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you
    look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts.'' Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa.'' His response --- click.


    3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong
    with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible, since Orlando I
    s in the middle of the state. He replied, "Don't lie to me!, I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!'' (OMG)


    4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ''Is it possible to see England from Canada?'' I said, ''No.''
    She said, ''But they look so close on the map.'' (OMG, again!)


    5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation
    and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas ... When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.'' (Aghhhh)


    6. An Illinois Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from
    Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn't
    understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.


    7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ''Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know
    whose luggage belongs to whom?'' I said, "No, why do you ask?" He replied, ''Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a
    tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!'' After putting him on hold for a minute, while I
    looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, CA is (FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and
    the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage.


    8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info,
    she asked, ''Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?''


    9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman,Bobby Brightfrom ALA who asked, ''How do I know which plane
    to get on?''
    I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have
    numbers
    on them.''


    10. SenatorDianne Feinsteincalled and said, ''I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those
    little computer planes?''
    I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola and fly on a commuter plane. She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!''


    11.Mary Landrieu, LA Senator, called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. "Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to
    have one of those.'' I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ''Look, I've been to
    China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!''


    12. A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, ''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York. ''
    I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?'' "Yes, what flights do you have?'' replied
    the man. After some searching, I came back with, ''I'm sorry, sir, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find
    a rhino anywhere." The man retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!'' So I scoured a map of
    the state of New York and finally offered, ''You don't mean Buffalo, do you?'' The reply? ''Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.''


    Now you know why the Government is in the sad shape it's in! Could ANYONE be this DUMB? Oh yes, they walk among us …
    and continue to breed!

    be safe
