What are you trying to prove? That he's to the left of Shapiro on one specific issue? That does not preclude him from being labeled right wing. If it had said conservative, would you have been okay with that?

At most he's near the center. 'Right-wing elite' is a definite mischaracterization of Peirs. It's a narrative that dismisses the legitimacy of the argument being made, and is woefully inaccurate. And in this case it is an unfortunate example of #FakeNews

So your issue is with the whole concept of left wing/right wing. It's not fake news. He's squarely right of center on the whole. Just because he's not Steve King or whoever, doesn't change that characterization. If you're trying to say that the backlash to the Gilette thing is larger than just right wing folks, I think you're sorely mistaken. The 'backlash' is absolutely coming from right of center - it's not a mainstream thing at all.

Just from reading this article, my guess is that the problem is not getting the part itself, but rather having Boeing's mobile mechanic team come install it. Otherwise I can't imagine why they just don't go ahead and fix it. I would think there's zero chance anybody actually gets in trouble if they just "smuggled" in the part and fixed it.

Why don't you try purchasing the part and arranging for the "smuggling". I'm sure Norwegian would be glad to compensate you. And while you're at it, you might try to smuggle a technician also.

This headline and its political slant simply cannot be outdone. Before you click, try to guess what the correlation is between Brexit and "thousands more deaths".

Love this:

"But in Kentucky, Gov. Matt Bevin complained that people just aren't tough enough. In an interview with WHAS radio of Louisville, Bevin said he wasn't happy that dozens of districts were canceling classes Wednesday.

"Now we cancel school for cold," Bevin told Terry Meiners, the host. "I mean, there's no ice going with it or any snow. What happens to America? We're getting soft, Terry. We're getting soft."

Bevin said that he was being "only slightly facetious" and that he had a real concern "that in America, on this and any number of other fronts, we're sending messages to our young people that if life is hard, you can curl up in the fetal position somewhere in a warm place and just wait 'til it stops being hard. And that just isn't reality.""

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
