Re: Aviation and the 2021 Election

They SHOULD raise interest rates for no other reason than to rein in housing prices. Raising interest rates will affect the sticker price on houses. Unless you are a cash buyer, wont affect what you pay for the house. For the most part, housing prices are determined by the ability to service the mo...

If we can still pay people to put cars together, and pack meat because it's cheaper than automation... I think my job is safe for now.

Make no mistake there is a lot of pressure placed unjustly on a lot of good people who haven't done anything wrong.

When should we end mandates or restrictions? Again specifically. When should we regain freedoms and an equal society? When should we regain a right to privacy? The restrictions will be backed off when hospital admissions for covid no longer surpass the hospital capacity to deal with those admission...

Why are your family's shenanigans from 45 years ago, when today's regulations, inspection regime and licensing structure didn't exist, even remotely relevant to this thread about the cost of getting a PPL in 2021? Just pointing out that using an average of the entire population is not relevant to h...
