    Yes, flying passengers around is a service provided to consumers. Requiring someone to have a license to fly their plane and use it as they see fit is a violation of property rights. Why is this hard to understand?

    He is exactly correct.
    I lived in NY on 9/11/01 and I ****ing disagree.

    Yet you choose to get a license, proper authorization and training. The government didn't force or require you to do any of it.

    The facts don't need changing. If you watched the video you would know that.

    Didn't say that. They that even they struggle should suggest to you how difficult it is.

    The penalty is $95 dollars for the first year, not $695.

    So the fine is equivalent to buying a videogame+two controllers+memory card.

    I'd hardly call that the same as slavery.

    Simple logic. No one has to work for anyone. I don't want to fight fires for some group, I can quit and serve burgers. No law prevents it.

    At that time I lived just outside DC and I don't disagree.

    Nothing in the video changes what I said. You are the one with the facts wrong.

    That the government will force you to pay for no economic or any other activity whatsoever. They own you.
