Please don't do that. . .

An American Airlines pilot has reportedly threatened to divert his flight, if passengers are unruly and "dump them off in the middle of Kansas". Please don't do that. We have our fair share of problems, we do not need Washington D. C. variety problems as well. Besides that, the squirrels would not like it. Nor would the eagles, hawks, armadillos, cougars, or even the field mice. Oh, and let's not forget the snakes. By the way, I hear we have a good population of tarantulas in Western Kansas. Those rabble rousing folks likely would not know how to survive, and someone would have to show them Christian charity and help them out. What a waste of resources. So pilots, please. If your bilge tanks or whatever they are called, need emptying, dump em somewhere else, like California. They are used to crazy people. Leave Kansas to be home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play, 'cause I am sure that those persons that are unwanted on your flight are likely expressing "discouraging words" For those of you who are unfamiliar, this last paragraph is based on our state song "Home on the Range." Maybe the unruly passengers can be dropped off in "Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plains".

@GardenGerty I think they typically do, unless they've flown to far. My husband used to fly, and he told me that planes have to travel a certain distance before they have to refuel. So if a plane has flown about halfway to where tey're supposed to go, they won't turn around because they don't have the fuel for that kind of delay.

I do not blame the pilot for being disturbed by these individuals. I have heard that many are going to be prosecuted by the FAA for endangering the flights with their bad behavior. I just do not like the idea of Kansas as a dumping ground. I think they should try to keep them off in the first place.

Just tell some people that God will take of His children during these crazy times and I get hate mail telling me I am crazy as a fox. If they only knew that we are being tested in these hard times. I just laugh at them.
