    I mean, who needs that gummint meddling? If your airplane crashes, why, the free market will simply adjust as you make your next decision about which airline to fly, or rather, your heirs will make as they decide which airline to fly your remains home on, assuming they find anything of you.

    Seriously, we should have a special airline just for Republican lawmakers that's run without safety regulations of any sort, so they can live their free market regulation-free paradise every moment of their days.

      should all be allowed to have unlimited numbers of guns with live ammo on the airplanes, and no baggage screening, and no pilot training, and no maintenance requirements, and no air traffic control.  Oh and they don't get to fly in and out of socialist airports.  They should have to take off and land from stubbly cornfields, dirt roads, and abandoned factory parking lots, and wait for their flights in tent terminals.

      The upside is that they can all smoke on flights.

      Righties are citing Canada as a privatized air control system.
