You mean identifying with the tobacco plant, the commidity that created the first impetus for bringing African slaves to Virginny? That IS revolutionary. She needs to peruse her history books (and none of the crap on the wikipedias) a bit closer.

Damn. The vast wingnut/teabagger/gun humper/Xtard/survivalist/libertardian/FucksGnus conspiracy provides a seemingly inexhaustible target-rich environment for snarking and skewering, and boy do we do have a good time doing it.

They should be restricted to airplanes with windows that open. If no flight attendants are willing to work these planes, then there will be no flight attendants. I'd have no food, a cash bar, and no seat belts, and I'd call it "Libertarian Class".
