    As you may know, the first heavier than air, powered flight took place in 1903 yet the FAA wasn't established as an independent agency until 1958!

    My question for you Liberals is this: How could such a revolutionary vehicle like that be invented and flown at a time when there was no gov't agency to guide and assist in those efforts?

    So, because gov't agencies don't invent things, there should be no gov't agencies? Is that what you're getting at? Thread fail.

    There was no FAA in 1903 for the same reason you don't put traffic lights in a cornfield.

    Superior taxation and regulation of the bicycle industry?

    Cronyism and no bid contracts to Big Bicycle?

    I'm pretty sure it was reverse-engineering of the first alien airplane that crash landed on earth.
    Obviously, the Wright brothers found it before the government.

    If they don't invent things, why do some insist that they are best at regulating things?
    That's right, it wasn't needed! Now yer catching on!

    You don't have an answer either do you? :lol:

    There is this looney liberal theory called "cause and effect", might want to look into it.

    IIRC- Liberal theory of cause and effect as relates to government policy:

    "If it moves tax it, if it keeps moving regulate it and if it stops moving subsidize it."
