Re: You cannot deny that America would be infinitely better off if Hillary won

With the anti-white, anti-male agenda charging ahead at breakneck speed, every year sends more young white people who may have grown up around the joys of diversity, especially in their schools, into the arms of the populist right. This is also true in Europe, where far right political parties are ...

AA did not keep the gates and does not currently operate out of A. But AA wants as many gates in CLT as possible to both expand and keep competition out.

AA left A to a pair of gates on the west side of B during the merger.
