The Decider keeps making it plain to us that we HAVE NO RIGHTS. He and his clique own ALL rights.

Let's make sure that this law also applies to Air Force 1 and all government planes - why should the taxpayers foot the bill for their in-flight food, etc.

Great idea, Roseann! But since The Decider gets to decide Everything, I don't think he'll go for not having gourmet meals and bathroom privileges on HIS plane.
