Georgia has the on-line seller charge the tax. But, whether you do or don't, that's not an excuse to otherwise cheat. It seems to be a right-wing thing. The more money they have, the more they want and the greedier they are. They are too greedy and racist to pay more taxes to fund health care for low income people, especially if they are minorities. Things are going to change, starting tomorrow, but that's a topic for a another place.

Actually, you do.

And I might add . . . a lot of that has to do with your social, political and professional standing. That may not be correct, but it’s reality. You don’t have to look very far to see it.

Maybe you should stop posting after all - calling people you know nothing about racists tend to shut off any civilized discussion anyway.

It is a fact that many or most, not sure which, Trump supporters are racist. Deny it all you want, it is a major attraction for Trump supporters. I am in NC this week and can't go up the street in my car without seeing a pick-up truck with a confederate flag flying out the back. That is about racism, not heritage. Our government is currently shut down over a $5 billion down payment for a wall. That is about racism, nothing else. It's a promise he made to his racist base. It has little to do with border security. I was born and raised in North Carolina and live in Georgia. I see it everyday.

However, you are correct, this is not the place to discuss politics or race issues.

I don’t remember seeing a single confederate flag here in IL ever .... and there are still about 46% people who ended up voting for Trump even in this very blue state.

There are many ideological , social and cultural differences between supporters of both parties - being or not being a racist is simply not one of them.

Yes, you can use them on the ground or listen to recorded music in the air. It is against the law to connect to cellular service in the air. This is another example of respecting the law or not. It's a choice we all make and part of our value system.

In the past week, I've had 3 people tell me about how they cheat on their income taxes. I've NEVER cheated on my taxes in 50 years of filing taxes. Some people seem to think it's OK. Character seems not to matter in this country anymore.


This discussion evolved from this...I posted this and someone called me a liar and here we are.

Stop watching Fox "News" and listening to Limbaugh. Racism is a MAJOR MAJOR factor. "Make American White Again" is his actual desire and that of many of his supporters. Of course you don't see that in Chicago. Chicago is a very diverse city. Try living in the south. To deny that racism is a major impetus in the Trump faction of the Republican party is to deny reality.

Yep, there are at least two liberals here, but one is scared to open his mouth.

Tim, I agree with many of the things you have said - and none more than this. :)

Yeah, what he said. :mrgreen:

Last time I checked this forum is for aviation related discussions. And LIGHT SPORT at that.

Look, we have a discussion about cellphones. I make the case for following the law. Others make the case for ignoring the law. I bring up the point of values and use the example of never cheating on taxes as an example of having values. Someone else calls me a liar. I am the lone liberal here. When the right-wingers attack me, I will fight back. Like I said, posting here is like pissing in the wind. You seems to like to pile on frequently.

You're not the lone liberal here, I'm actually on your side, believe it or not. I can't believe I just said that. :D Does that mean there's three now? I agree with what you stated but this is simply not the forum for one's political views. You never discuss politics and religion with friends, it'll almost always ends badly. You have to have the wisdom to know this by now.

Calling out people as right-wingers or left-wingers is simply name calling and there's no need for that. We are here to discuss light sport aviation. In my opinion name calling is petty and for simple minded people. This is most certainly not you. (that was a compliment)

You are the one who stated over and over that you are done posting here yet you continue to read and post, so please don't get mad at us when you read something you dont agree with. I read things everyday I dont agree with but life is too short to be pissed at the world. I'd rather be flyin'. We can agree to disagree without getting angry every time we read something we dont agree with. And for the record, no one actually called you a liar.

This is an open forum and everyone is entitled to their own views and opinions. You dont get to say if it's right or wrong, you simply get YOUR own opinion on the subject. I know you are passionate about your views and that's certainly commendable but I dont see why you have to snap at everyone who doesn't agree with your views. If we all had the same views this would be a boring country.

There's no reason we can't all discuss light sport flying and it be a healthy discussion without "pissing into the wind" as you say. And for the record I'm not piling anything on here, just stating my opinion.

I think you need a hug Tim. :mrgreen:

If I want a hug, I'll get it from my wife of 50 years (values). I don't care if someone agrees with me or not. When they call me a liar, I will respond. When you make some of the comments you make, I will respond. There are two or three others here who do the same thing. I will respond. There is a history here that was here long before you came around. Thanks anyway.
