Kinda struck me as an Onion type satire article at first.

No politics please, I am just wondering if there is ANYONE here who thinks this is a good idea?

Government says miniature horses used as service animals allowed on commercial flights

Gotta love the picture in this article.

What happens if that thing takes a big smelly dump ? Everyone has to smell it the rest of the trip. What's next, an emotional support gorilla ?

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

It’s madness


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

That's my take on it.

Somebody is nutz, and it sure isn't people with their feet planted firmly on the ground like us saying, "What kind of logic produces results like this?"

More than a bit silly, totally insane.

Why isn't a support dog/cat/rabbit/turtle sufficient for some?


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Who in the government decided this was ok?

Somebody is really out of touch with reality.

I suffer from aviophobia,and so does my support elephant.

Seriously,what happens if 'my little pony' decides to run amok? Can the captain blow the mother's brains out in front of everyone,because that would be worth conquering my fear of flying to see.

Looks like pink slips need to be handed out at the US DOT. A LOT.

A misinterpretation of "I'm OK, You're OK". Like a lot of things, something that was meant to make people feel less guilty about being "different" was turned into justification for being ridiculous and an excuse to do whatever the heck you want. Essentially, it was turned into "I'm Allowed, and You Have To Be OK With It".


SALUTE TO ALL!
