Default Ladies & Gentlemen: Happy Fourth!

To my Fellow Americans: Happy Independence Day!

Just think, if we hadn't won the war for independence from Great
Britain, some 230 years ago, we all wouldn't be speaking Spanish
today... :-)

Seriously, where else can a man hop in his own airplane, load it up
with car gas, and take his family for a 9 day flight around the Great
Lakes, without ever once being required to fill out paperwork or bribe
some petty government official? Where else can one land at literally
thousands of airfields, borrow a car, and head off to see the sights,
knowing full-well that the aircraft will still be there when we return?


For all its foibles, we Americans still live in the free-est country in
history, and let's not ever forget it. Better yet, let's make sure it
stays that way!

Now go celebrate Independence Day -- by flying!

:-)

Certainly have a happy Independence Day but you ask where else can you do
these things? I can vouch personally that the UK, and New Zealand offer the
same freedoms, and I am quite sure several more countries too!

How? By convicting the president of overstepping the power of his
office and holding hundreds without benefit of judicial due process,
spying on citizens' telephone conversations without a warrant as
mandated by law, authorizing 1984esque 'sneak and peek' searches, ...
?

Enjoy your freedom while you can. It can't continue if the religious
right stays in power.

Meds run out again, Larry? What does the above have to do with piloting?

And a false conclusion. Other than that, a very sound argument! :-)

I suppose nothing, because if things like the FRZ and ADIZ keep up,
there will be no piloting.

Yikes, better learn some law (such as the anti-terrorism implemented in
the Carter era) before the next time your medicines run out! Have a
happy fourth anyway and good luck with the medical renewal form.

At one time, back about 1911, the UK and its colonies were
reasonably free places. Today, possession of a pocket
knife, a firearm or even a door lock that you won't open for
police inspection will land you in the slammer.


There is only one USA and one U.S. Constitution and Bill of
Rights.

And despite dozens of recounts in Florida, some people still
think Al Gore won the election and the Supreme Court
installed George Bush.

Let's see some facts...
