Were you comfortable explaining to your fellow pilots you became a sport pilot because of a medical reason?

Constructive topics of interest related to aviation that do not match the other section descriptions below (as long as it is somewhat related to aviation, flying, learning to fly, sport pilot, light sport aircraft, etc.). Please, advertisements for Viagra will be promptly deleted!"

Why is it that you always try and turn an innocuous statement into some political conspiracy? Pretty much the only time there is a political brouhaha on here is when you think you have been offended. There has certainly been a few times it has been unwarranted.

Why do you always chime in with your opinions? When a right winger starts criticizing the FAA, I am free to comment. So, stop with your self-righteous shit. For some reason you follow me around the internet and express your opinion with I express a complaint about right-wing post.

You're quite an optimist.

If the Feds were in charge of driver's licenses, instead of the states, you'd need a Class 1 to drive a car, and probably a Class 3 to ride a bicycle.

This is clearly a right-wing political opinion. You are free to express it and I am free to respond.

You are free to enjoy left wing paranoia, seeing a vast right wing conspiracy behind every post, just as I am free to ignore you.

Tim or what ever your name is. I am free to comment just like you. I am just calling it like I see it. You have gone off on countless people for making what you think are political statements. As for following you around, I have been a active member here and on ctflier using the same username trying to offer positive comentary since before you joined the first time, second time, third time, and so on and so on. I don't know what other forums you are on or have been kicked off of, but I certainly am not following you around.

Why do I chime in with my opinion? Well because I think of this forum as a home. I know it is not just my home, but a home none the less. Unlike my home where I would show you the door for your actions, I feel making a coment is the only recourse I have. If you don't like my "self richeous shit" as you call it, stop turning everything into a right wing conspiracy.

Donald Trump is an idiot. This is not a left-wing political statement, so please don't take it that way. And just to keep this on the topic of aviation, privatization of ATC is a bad idea, just as all other Republican ideas. Have a nice day. PS: this is not a political statement, it is a statement of fact. Please don't assume some left-wing conspiracy at work here. That would mean you are paranoid.

OK what ever. I can't say I am in complete disagreement. You saying something like that is not what I have an issue with, but I'm certain that if someone had said that with the previous administration you would have blown a gasket. What I take issue with is when you jump on someone for making a simple statement and trying to turn it into some big political BS. I remember you having a major meltdown over someone saying "the past 7 years". IIRC they were talking about something completely non political, but you tried to twist it into an attack on Obama.

It is clear that the majority of posters on these sport pilot web sites are Republicans. They are the ones that can afford to purchase a new LSA. That is even more evident on CTFliers than here. So, every so often, someone makes a snarky comment that is derogatory toward Democrats or the values of Democrats. I, being one of the few Democrats here, choose to call them out. That's all. Tearing down the federal government and it's agencies is right out of the Republican game plan. "We're going to shrink the federal government until we can drown it in the bathtub." I never introduce political rhetoric, I just react to it.

Where is your proof of that?

That is a baseless accusation.

On the contrary, many times I have read some questionable posts with tongue in cheek. Have you ever stopped to think that maybe sometimes they are just humoring us?

I have to disagree with you there. There are times when we have seen you interject a definite political angle when there was no call for it, other than to startle the gallery.
Stop taking yourself so seriously. Lighten up a little. You seem to carry a very large chip on your shoulder. Isn't it time to brush it off a little?

Oh, and by the way . . . I am not a Republican.

I take politics very seriously. It's not a game, it's our future and the future of our kids and grandchildren. There is no chip on my shoulder. I don't like watching our country be destroyed by Trump and the Republicans. Maybe you should pay attention and get your head out of your ass.

You are a very angry person. May God help you.

God has blessed me, no thanks to you. And I resent you using God in a personal attack. Typical. What a hypocrit you are.
