"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I don't want the masses/mob to control government nor want peasants running it. The result is socialism and such as the French Revolution that goes on a killing/tyranny spree. I want government to be from among our very best and brightest and usually that isn't someone flipping burgers at McDonalds or driving a delivery truck.
I also think our elected representatives should be treated as holding high positions of honor, nor want poor Congress members at the back of the aircraft and rich ones up front, just I don't want rich people up front and our elected representatives shoved to the back.
Heya DH......yep even Repubs. But that still doesn't change that the MS media far more liberal than whats led on. The kicker is the all those heartfelt warming stories that don't have to do with anything. That come out of far left field.
Or when they direct us to look at the other privilege group that comes out of Hollywood and TV Land.
The MSM may lean "liberal", but their real motivation is to get viewership so they can sell advertising space. That's their bread and butter.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I've thought about this today, and to be honest, I really don't have an issue with it. The aspect that a military person cannot fly first class even if they pay for the upgrade out of their own pocket doesn't sit well with me, but not enough to change my mind. I'd simply fix the military thing and leave the rest alone.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
BTW: for organizations that travel a lot, its often cost equivalent to operate private aircraft rather than fly commercial airlines...at least according to a private charter flight service manager/pilot I know. Then you get the convenience to travel on you own schedule and not the airlines and avoid the inconvenience if connecting flights if travelling to and from cities and towns that aren't major hubs. My only concern is I think its important for policy makers to live under the same life conditions are the public so they are equally affected by the policies on the rest of us and understand first hand the lives their constituents have to live. For this reason I'd want to limit this service to senior government officials.
