    That is ridiculous on a few different levels. The most obvious one being that the force is on the pilot, not the passengers.

    Forcing someone into service for another is involuntary servitude. Sorry, but there is nothing to disagree with.

    Yes. I, as a pilot, am forced to do all sorts of things in the name of passenger safety. Like recurrent training. And having a license. Why, that dastardly government even forces me to have my plane inspected regularly!

    Okay.

    No one is forced. Period.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    When a Democrat puts together a healthcare plan which requires that everyone carry health insurance (not exactly a terrible idea), the Right calls it akin to slavery. But, when A GOP President sends US Soldiers to war under false pretext, it's called serving your country

    No wonder no one outside the crazy 27% takes these clowns serious anymore.

    Aw, I see. So the lawyers on the supreme court have never made a mistake that was later changed. They must have never missed a connection or never misread the constitution, that's impressive.

    But what about a Dem president and our experience in Vietnam? Or a Dem president and his "surge" in Afgan? Or a Dem president and his war in Libya?

    1. That's going so far back that many of the people involved with making that decision are long dead.

    2. Surge was to end a war that Bush decided to put on the backburner. BHO's reasserted effort netted us OBL, BTW.

    3. Soldiers didn't die in Libya until the embassy was raided, and that was not related to us helping the French oust Ghadafi.
