    Thank you Mr. Meier for your well written letter to our Chief Politician. It is very refreshing, Mr. Meier, to see we still have honest politicians (you) looking out for our individual rights and freedoms instead of how to “feather” ones own nest, as is the case with most politicians in government today. Again, thank you.

    I hope the date on the letter is just the usual mistake made at the beginning of a new year, otherwise this is old news.

      Usual mistake. Great catch! I didn’t see it until you mentioned it.

    President Obama should be free to criticize General Aviation…provided he forgoes use of Air Force One and Marine One. And, OBTW, they have restarted the procurement of a new Marine One…$1.8B (yep, Billion) for the first six (of 24) helos.

    If President Obama would spend more time at his desk instead of opening his mouth on this “daily” television speeches, maybe he would get more done.
