United Airlines Pilot Placed on Unpaid Leave After Being Granted Exemption From Vaccine Mandate
"I am going to be joined in this segment by captain sherry walker and captain Dave Morgan of airline employees for health freedom. They happen to be United Airlines pilots, and they are pretty good at what they do. 7 87 international 7 67, these guys are experts. They keep us safe. They make the skies friendly. They get us from point a to point B and now they are going to tell us their story about their experience with these vax mandates that have been spreading across the country. There is news today that osha has now at least temporarily sidelined this plan of vax mandates, pending circuit court, judgments that have fully put a stop to it, at least for the time being. So we're going to keep monitoring that. Dave Morgan, thank you so much for joining us, captain sherry walker. Thank you so much for joining us. Tell us a little bit about what you guys have been going through the floor is yours. I've got some tape, by the way, that we can play at some point in the segment of the CEO of United. I know you're not speaking on behalf of United here, but I do have, I think it's partner to what we're discussing. So I do want to get to that, but tell us what you've been going through. Tell us a little bit about your background. Are you guys getting paid right now? I went on unpaid leave a week ago on Friday. I'm a pilot for United Airlines. I was hired in continental airlines in 1998, so I've been here 23 and a half years. We've spent many years out in the island of Guam for Micronesia and three years ago, just before the pandemic, we moved from Guam to the great state of Arizona, and I'm on a fly 7 87 out of San Francisco. Pandemic came down the pipe and we pressed on. We are the front lines that we're willing to do whatever it took. What we are team of many, many people, and I'm just representing I'm a voice representing thousands who I wish also could have this opportunity to speak. But we work through this thing. And with a really can do cooperative spirit of let's get through this because I was also a pilot during 9 11. I remember that vividly. We worked through that. And then suddenly, on the back side of this, here comes this vaccine mandate. And those of us who pressed on and made the wheels turn airplanes fly, the people who were able to fly for point a to we were there to get them there. And all of a sudden, Scott Kirby says, we're not safe anymore. You're done. So as of last Friday, I've been placed on unpaid leave, and they've basically cut my cord. I have no insurance, no benefits. I can't retire. I have no access to anything. They have shut me down and to make it worse. I can't pass travel. I can't even jump seat on other airline jump seats. So I'm scrambling right now to see what I'm going to do with insurance. I have three boys, 12, 16 and

Where Is the Reasonable Balance Between Safety and Liberty?
"We were about to get onto an elevator of a building in Boise Idaho. And the elevator doors open and the woman's wearing a mask, which is fine. I've never attacked anyone for wearing a mask. And she says, excuse me, do not get on this elevator. Go take the next one. And I knew what she was saying. She wanted the elevator to herself. And one of our other team members was like, why? And she said, because none of you are masked. You see that? You see the way this works now? It's not enough that she wants to wear a mask. She wants to force other people so that she can also feel safe. And for her, the most important thing in her life is being safe. Being safe is important. It is an element of human life. There are risks that I am not willing to take. There are some things I tell my team, I'm not gonna skydive. I'm not going to bungee jump. I don't think that's that dangerous though. Bungee jumping? It could be, I guess. Depends where you do it. No skydiving, no bungee jumping, no more skiing, the last time I went skiing, everyone said I had a great time. Woke up in a hospital. True story. Not doing that again. There's just some things I'm just not going to do. The risk reward ratio, I don't want to end up kind of paralyzed in the waist down and be like, you know, my entire life has been disrupted, but at least I got a good thrill bungee jumping. Like, it's just the reward, and I'm not sure we have a lot of skydivers listening. And that's fine. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope it's worth it. For me, I've decided not to do it. So I'm not someone that is a risk seeker for the sake of doing it. However, I want to live a full life and walking around with a mask while natural immunity is set into well over a 100 million people. I would imagine this woman who got very angry at us was vaccinated, it just kind of begs the question of where is the reasonable balance between safety and

I wanted to participate in the challenge. One year i actually wrote my script. And i just couldn't get anyone to get enough pete. I couldn't get a crew and actors together to do it. But i was like i'm going to keep the script and i'm gonna keep working on it and i'm gonna eventually produce it so i wrote a script. Siro my script for the mystery box challenge. This call fallout. And so i kept working on it and working on the script editing. I had my colleagues rita the detailer with me at lunch. They gave me feedback. So i just kept the script that i wrote for the mystery box kept working working working at and i gave it to my friend bridget. She edited it for me. Give me feedback. I kept ending it in editing. It got to a point where i thought it was good. And i just didn't then the pandemic again the pandemic hits and i just haven't i have not produced the film yet but i do want to. It's not really conducive to film during the pandemic. Because it's all takes place in a basement so really. The premise of fallout is.

Lessons I Learned After COVID Killed My Conference
"The first lesson. I learned is that. Don't use optimism as your guide meaning that you know. We were super optimistic. That we're going to still the conference when we went into lockdown. You know we didn't realize how long lockdown was going to be but It's always good to have a disaster plan. It's funny because i know this in my software company we always have these. What if conversations and Center standard operating procedures. But we need to have the same in the conference we need to think. Hey what if is in happened way before it would give me more time to have options or to Make some changes provide some options to the attendees but basically when i found out we're three weeks out from the conference so i had limited choices to what i can do. Second i learned was. I knew in that moment. The best thing i can do is i need to communicate. I need to communicate with my people. The attendees And i just needed to make sure that they're included in any decision and that i let them know what's going on so they don't feel like they're in the dark. I was very conscious. These people trusted me. They give me their money. I want to make sure that they know that. I got their back and that you know there are some options. I'm looking at when we actually had a discussion on that call before the cancellation was confirmed. Because the accession of lockdown of what are some options. And what.

It seems a bit strange after year. a yearlong delighted the twenty twenty olympics. But it does mean. There's now lessons six months or about six months until the winter olympics in beijing. And the reason. I say emily and jasmine to join me today. Is that both of them. Have competed professionally and jasmine still is the highest level. And say let's not offer a little chat about jasmine. What event in the winter olympics. Will you be most looking forward to watching. I always enjoy the outpoint obvious reasons but will say the ski jumping cross country skiing. Olivet really excellent cross country skiing. Paps has the the closest set with your telemarketing events. Logical combination is probably a combination of three mentioned size. Probably why enjoy watching knows. But it has downhill element of our point that we have free heo of ski jumping and cross country. So it's very much the blend votes ice right. Okay and emily represented. Great britain in the scarecrow set the winter olympics. I i'm going to take a guess me though it will eventually be looking forward to watching. Yeah i mean ski crosses that kind of a adrenaline sport where it's a little bit like the hundred sprint. Where the first one across the finish line wins. So you don't really need to know much about it to kind of grasping is a spectator. So yeah it's always a good one to watch so i'll be looking forward to that oversee all my fellow p. Is sippy competed. Rival being their so called friends competing. But also i didn't i. I love the olympics. Because the so much kind of you get to see on your regula tv screen. So that's obsolete glued to the screen right now but in your think also i'll be looking for the brits and we've got like probably the strongest kind of fresh team we've ever had taken to a game Maybe the biggest depth and talent. We've we've had as well so that'll be really interesting to see where the brits kind of like. Yeah end up because we're not normally no those winter sports but now we've got world champions. We've got people who regularly run. Welcome jobs won't the olympics because events on the olympics and there's many kind of like athletes up there who are going to be good in for a medal so i think that'd be really cool to see that i mean you're roy and certainly ambitions for snow. Sports are very high. I did actually get a press. Release yesterday which i haven't looked at in so much. Data have announced the teams the free ski and snowboard squirts after this winter. And again these as you mentioned. There's a huge amounts of a talent in there and a lot of people have picked up medals already. I think the ambition ham from vicky goes ling who is a ceo of gdp snake. Sports is that they want to have britain fifth in the medal table for alpine sports. And i don't think that's this olympic cycle. I think it's for the one after 'cause you need to get you know fairly considerable number of meadows if you think that You know jenny. Jones was the first ever alpine meadow in sachi and then they were to meadows. I'm right in saying in the last olympics. As i think they probably need to get up to five or something like that so you To get to get the the the placing that they're looking for but that's entirely possible with the with the squad of athletes.

So if you are in any way paying attention these days to alpine skiing, you -absolutely must be paying attention to Michaela Schifrin who's just wrapped up her third consecutive World Cup overall championship and she's not yet twenty four Kayla. Welcome to the show. Thank you. Oh that was an introduction. Wasn't it? Well, it's it's been a remarkable season. And you've already had such a young age a remarkable historic career. But this in many ways has been your most successful season despite difficulties what has changed this year in terms of your approach and your production. You know, I I don't think a lot has changed in terms of my approach. It's I think that I'm still learning. I'm still getting wiser I'm also, you know, still pretty young. So every year, I get just a little bit naturally stronger, and I'm not necessarily training harder. But I'd say every year I learned how to train a little bit smarter. And all those pieces kind of fit into this into the puzzle and a really great way. And then this year like I said, my hasn't really changed. But I I don't know. I I guess I've sort of found. A way to let go of the expectations and just try to really have fun on my skis, and it's been producing some really awesome things. You had a great world championships in Sweden as I said, this is your third straight overall World Cup, title only only one woman has ever won more in a row, and that was that was forty years ago when you're at the top of the mountain, you're bats come down. What are the what are the thoughts? Uppermost your mind as you're about to come out of the gate. Oh, you know, the the moment exact moment right before I leave the starting gate. My mind is almost blink. I think the most the the biggest thing I'm thinking is just like bring the intensity, and you know, just kind of trying to get myself really hyped up to put to put my biggest effort into every single turn for the next, you know, sixty or so. Seconds of of the race racecourse. But otherwise, it's just I'm really trying to keep my mind. Clear of any any creepy thoughts to the layman out there. The person who doesn't see skiing except during the Olympics perhaps or tunes in only for a few big races each season, it's hard to comprehend. What creates the separation between someone such as yourself the best in the world and someone who is finishing teeth or twentieth or twenty fifth consistently because.

"It's skiing Turkey, there's no trees anywhere. And it's so interesting because to me when I'm skiing, one of my biggest fears is crashing into a tree and doing a Sonny Bono. Sure. Yeah. That you can't do that on mount with no trees. Do you think the level of skiing is geared towards beginners and earn their media there? Are there is there? Anything any type of you know, trails for advanced skiers. I was wishing skiers were prequel wanna pressure. There was a bunch of people there skied a lot. This one guy was a snowboarder skier. And then a woman from Iceland who really had been skiing or whole life. You could tell they it. They really enjoyed this gang. But I gotta say it wasn't steeping up for the steep types. You know, I've skied with people. It's got to be so steep, and this ain't steep steep. And they also pay like moguls, and there's no moguls on this on this hill. Which Jen, I tell you. That's why I love to hate moguls, but really took ears like moguls. So I'd say probably best. If you say, you're a beginner or intermediate, you know, you can see video posted where you just you're gliding down. There's nothing in the way just barely barely can tell you're on the trail. But I don't think that there's enough steep stuff for those folks that go for that type of thing. Okay now step in. State Department visor is our garbage. I've never been skiing in my life. And I didn't even know the skiing in Turkey by Mexico. Ten dollars. And it's only Gary ten bucks, then bucks to ski only one hundred and fifty. Rental the rental another nine, but. For the Reynolds strap on skis boots and poles and a helmet you gotta wear a helmet now. Gary can't ski without a helmet and ten bucks for the lift ticket. And most people just end up paying I think three bucks for the little magic carpet ride. So they can take sleds. The Turkish preferred taking sleds on short little ride, then the whole thing about going up all the way the top. And this man is quite big scale. Snowmass is one of the biggest scary is an Aspen, it's a beautiful huge mountain, and that vertical drop Snowmass is just about forty five hundred feet and the vertical drop, which is how you measure really measure ski not by the total amount of trails. But really about the drop between at top the bottom. It's about forty seven hundred. So that's a pretty long ride main sto isn't the biggest mountain in Vermont is like twenty two hundred and as I said Snowmass is about forty five hundred. So this is a long ride. And that's what you like. I like when I ski. To take the lift and take a long ride rather than having to keep going back and forth back and forth. So Jen that's one answer to you. Nice long rides and hardly any lift lines. And I'm checking flights from L A, and it's pretty pricey. It is. Yeah. It's a long way, you You know. know, actually surprised because the tourism that Torri the Trish airlines has been relatively affordable in recent years and part of that is just because tourism has been down. I was looking at the stats and tourism to Turkey peaked in two thousand fourteen at forty one million and by two thousand sixteen was down to twenty five. So it wasn't quite half as much, but has gone back up in two thousand seventeen I think I heard that it's going back up in two thousand eighteen but I haven't seen those stats yet. So it's it's rebounded from some of the some of the unrest that happened a couple years ago. One of the things that the marketing folks talents on the mount was one of the great routes that they're developing Tonga actually Turkish share route but to Germany because there's four million German German Turks. You You know? know, convince someone those skiers to go back home combined visit to Turkey with skiing that might be up to their level. They can skip the skiing Austria and the skiing Germany, where they're living and get them to come into the number of people that Turkish diasters pretty amazing go to Europe, there's lots Turks..

"We're in the middle of conversation about skiing in Turkey in Turkey in general. I. I'm ex usually I would think we would have this, you know, show near thanksgiving. That is kind of Turkey season. About restrictions to travel Turkey end, the orange warning that the State Department is put out I don't know about you. But I felt about as safe as I've ever felt anywhere in Turkey, but Christmas mentioning that he had traveled in some parts of the country over near Syria in Iraq, where you'd obviously be a little more on your toes. My feeling about is IBM most afraid to be anywhere near the area where there are going to be fighting with the Turks Kurd thing fact, that was one of the interesting things we heard some uses in singing songs, and when they translated they said, they were basically saying songs as Kurds and feeling the sadness of the pull away from Turkey and how they're being treated by Turkish government. So so don't get I wasn't better. So the beginning of the Curtis region. So Ghazi tip where I was visiting are the family of the person who had stayed with us as an exchange. Student is Turkish, but as you go just a little further east about an hour. Drive. You get to Shenley Orfa where the Turks will tell you that Abraham was born not in not everyone who is not Turkish. We'll tell you that they will put that that or that he was born in in Iraq. But the Turks will point out to you the the cave where he was born. And it was very interesting because just that little difference. You start to see the dress changes completely from very European style. Dress sometimes with the headscarf, but but often not even too much more what to me looks more Arabic style dress, and such and that's because you've you've gone into an area that is now starting to be more Kurdish. So though, even when I was there though, which was during the Iraq war being on the Turkish side of the border really was fine. There was no tension or anything like that. At that time. Now, I think Syria has been a little more. Is displaced more people who've gone into Turkey and things. So I don't know how things are in that region right now. But yeah, very interesting region. Very different from Istanbul. Istanbul feel so European facing? When I was there. So Chris interestingly in that same vein when we are in KYW's Ray, I was told that it's the city's actually picking the two thousand I think it's more like half a million, and there's at least one hundred and fifty thousand series in Kaiser. There are people that have very they they didn't talk about other than the they had been pretty well scintillating there and they've been there for quite a while. So that they really part of the fabric of the community there. You're you're so close to Syria that point that you can't be unaffected by everything that's been going on in Syria. But I'm Turkey in general. I think you know, there's so many different parts of Turkey today. And this was just a neat. Little extra thing that you know, when I first got the invite the new described his skiing in Turkey. You know, a trip to Turkey really the skiing. It would be a part of it. But I probably I'm not sure that you would go there for the sole intention of skiing. But if you did I was pretty something that Turkish airline said we met with a Representative from Turkish Airlines at the mountain, and they said if you book a ticket from the United States or western Europe from is bull Fontanka share. And then continue to Kaiser where they have nice new airport relatively new airport. They will actually allow you to bring your skis and your boots at all your at no cost on Turkish air. And I think that's usually a significant cost to bring ski equipment. I've never travelled overseas. Misquote, but I pitch it costs a lot, and they don't try to anything because they want to because Turkish share. I think is invested some money into Kaiser. So there if you go to the website Turkish you can see they promote ties in promote the mount URS at scheme. So it's a new it's a new initiative, you know, but it's interesting the way the mountain looks look at the.

"He wrote a blog post about his trip to Turkey for skiing. But max one of the things that I was just astonished by is how cheap it was. It's not just skiing in Turkey. But it's budget skiing. Oh, it's it's the ultimate budgets now. That's how you market a place when you're in the middle of Turkey, and you're surrounded by all the people who don't ski only one percent of the ski. So what do you do? Well, you offer ski lifts which are very they have a number of things called like magic carpets which are small little. They're almost like moving stairways goal a very short little slope. I was told that about ninety percent of the Turks used this. Sleds and preferred to just go up short way, and then sled down the buddy, buddy hill. But but for those of the Vos of the Turkson the visitors who want to actually go skiing. It's ten bucks a lift ticket and nine bucks to rent all the equipment, so nineteen dollars. Quantum mountain. Pre mazing a friend of mine wrote read this Facebook. She said she was skiing in Whistler, and it was one hundred and twenty dollars for the lift ticket and seventy from the rebel. So there's a comparison for it. Well, didn't even mention how much the room would be in Whistler in the in the wintertime because that's going to get pretty pricey to a lot of the those places like Whistler, or the, you know, great ski resorts rather in Colorado that route prices is pretty dear. And you know, this Airbnb guys Jack it up whenever there's a big snowfall. The snow, right? I mean, that's what I heard guys. Airbnb people was zoom it up for the right reason and good snowfall as reason so Turkey. Yeah. That's not a problem with stayed. Where we stayed was Kaiser I which is a neat city. Not a real spectacular city with lots to recommend a flat city and really early there because of the skiing, but we had some nice food there. I was really impressed with the Turkish food. God it was so good. Turkish food is great. Yeah. Is you know, I mean, just a stash ios in meat because national statues mixed in with with ground meat. So good just if you ever want to make some really good. I did the other day. Just put some pistachios in your ground meat boy as a Turkish trick. So good. Wow. Hey, max. So what's ski resort where you at? It's called mount as there is. So it's eat the it's interesting, spelling, it's E R C Y E S mount earth. Sees is. Said the big big mountain of the center of Turkey. And yes, they do really market as you mentioned, Chris they market this thing as basically like why don't you go to see two things at once? You can go to the ski area for the four days or so and again, ten dollars elliptic ten forty bucks, and that you could drive a about forty five fifty minutes and being capital Kia, which is just as you said, it's just if you ever look up pictures of capital again, you look like you're in a different planet. These soft Brown hills when he's really unusual formations. And it is the center it's like the center of hot air ballooning all year round. We were there in January, and these balloons were up hundreds of balloons are up in January with these baskets, which hold like twenty five thirty people. It's the biggest bass year because you can't believe they can give good off the ground these balloons, but they do it twice a day all year round in capita. So they're really trying to market the scary now URS it's as a add on to to capitol Kia. And of course. When we went there. Brick ema. Plug flow tours was the company tours as out of Florida, and they have all these trips to different parts of Turkey and central Asia, and Japan, and we really was impressed with how they did this tour. They mixed estan ball little bit. Stumble had never been there before which is just. Favorite cities in the world. Isn't it just have you been there? Jen, I haven't. I haven't bull is hard to describe you feel like you're you're really in the center of something really important. You know, you're looking over. There's Asia across the boss, I is Asia. And then the golden horn is on the left in over..
