  •  As a pilot and someone (15+ / 0-)

    who has attended, not sun and fun, but Oshkosh, the bigger version of sun and fun I have a suggestion for Congressman Dennis A. Ross. Sun-n-Fun wants controllers for it's event? Then Sun-n-Fun should pony up the funds from gate receipts and pilot registration fees and fees from manufactures and suppliers who rent booths and display areas to pay for them.

    Frankly  as pilot I feel I should be the one paying for the services I receive from the FAA or Contract Towers not the general public, which really derives no day to day benefit and when they do they pay through fees on the airline tickets

    If you are against sane gun regulations then by definition you support 30,000 deaths a year by firearms.

    •  Now there's an idea (7+ / 0-)

      You want a tour of the White House you say?  Well pay up mfer.  Someone has to pay for the security.  Might as well be the one getting the benefit.  Pay to play.  

      I've often used this type of argument with GOoPers and then sat back and watched their heads explode.  Especially when I worked for tax assessors a decade ago.  They always complained about their taxes going up but at that time were all gung ho for war.  My response?  Well someone has to pay for the wars.  

      That should be the standard response to these idiot republicans whining about cut services.  Oh you don't want (fill in the blank) cut?  Well pay up.

    •  I know pilots... (0+ / 0-)

      Who are also extremely right-wing.  They believe they already pay enough taxes and shouldn't have to pay ANY fees.  But they are the first to suggest bigger fees for other services.
