FAA sUAS NPRM publication date pushed back...again

If anyone thought the FAA could not move any slower on producing rules for sUAS...they were wrong. The last publication goal date was 11/17/2011...now the new proposed publication date is 01/06/2012 according to the Department of Transportation's website.

   Bet you can't wait for regulation.  Let's see. No.  Imagine:  You can't fly anywhere except north of Alaska and there only in certain areas, like maybe over the ocean between the hours of 9 to 5 and only monday through thursday and no holidays limited to 50 feet above ground.  The silence of inaction is deafening.  So, shill away your rights.  And guarantee that right after being herded like cattle (look at an airport) feel free to pay for guaranteed profit of an Insurance company.  I suggest you get informed and vote with your wallet, after all, the lobbyists found that works for them big time.

The ruling, if by an agency is where you give up your Constitutional rights for an agency, an interest group.  So, where do you have a say?   In a world driven by un-realistic fear and boogie men oceans away, questions about Constitutional rights won't matter when "in Greenspan's words " we can always print more money, so we can never default."  

   North American Free Trade (NAFTA) wiped out so much business in America, too big to fail, ah the list goes on...  How about instead of being played into divide and conquer between rc and drones, the membership request advance copies of proposed regulation - post links here -  and freely speak our interests and not simply get sucked into the Fed's Agenda on America, now swooning over Insurance regulations (risk is all about avoiding making payment, not taking in cash)  as the Fed is so intent on dominating Insurance law.  A law to insure profits at the expense of your rights.      

    How about, they show cause for each and every regulation they seek?    Then, how much will these new regulations will add to the debt? 

    Then ask yourself, in the next war, will you be a casualty of those closed minds who enable foreign entities interested in trashing our lives, our fortunes and our future because regulations for profit mattered more than your rights and your life?
