Bill would create ‘no-fly’ list for unruly passengers

Now days you let people fly that dress like they are going to Walmart and you get what you get.

Where does Trump come into the equation?

put them on a no fly list and ban them from flying on ALL AIRLINES FOR LIFE AS WELL AS LOCKING THEM UP IN PRISON FOR A LONG TIME 20+ YEARS

When I head of this, I thought "Its about time!" until I saw that it will be managed by the Biden government. Might as well have nobody in charge for the good it will do. Another catch and release program.

Since the pointless mask mandate aggressive behaviour has undoubtedly escalated. Get rid of the masks and the nazis that enforce their use
Andy must be one of Trump's misguided followers.

Yep….and I originally thought Trump had created a class of _______ followers…but now I believe these _______ people were out there all along…Trump just gave them a voice. Wowzer, I completely misunderstood what kind of country we were….scary what we now realize we were all along. (_______ = insert favorite descriptor)
