"Why Inhofe is mad at the FAA."
Short answer: because they expect pilots to be responsible and this is an attack on FREEDOOM!!!
See, last year Senator and Sky Hero Jim Inhofe was flying along, minding his own business, when he nearly killed some people -- WHICH IS HIS RIGHT AS AN AMERICAN!!!
According to the report, "Inhofe saw a closed runway at his South Texas destination -- it was marked with a giant X -- but decided to land on it anyway. He touched down and then 'sky hopped' over six vehicles and personnel working on the runway, before landing for good. Inhofe, among other things, also didn't feel the need to check the Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) indicating the runway closure prior to flying." And why should he? Government notices are regulations, which are communism. The airport manager was appalled by Inhofe's Wings of Freedom, saying he'd "never seen such a reckless disregard for human life" -- presumably because of his communist bias.
Anyway, after having nearly killed several people, Sen. Inhofe found himself in the sights of BIG GOVERNMENT OPPRESSSION. In lieu of legal action -- like attempted manslaughter -- Inhofe was FORCED BY GOVERNMENT GOONS to take a "program of remedial training" -- because BIG GOVERNMENT REGULATORS don't understand that it's every American's right to crash a plane anywhere they goddam well see fit.
So he's pushing a "Pilot's Bill of Rights" to protect FREEDOM LOVING KAMIKAZES from "agency overreach."
"I was never fully appreciative of the feeling of desperation until it happened to me," Sen. Inhofe says.
Good for you, Pilot Inhofe. We have to stop them now or the next thing you know, they'll be curtailing our GOD-GIVEN RIGHT to drive drunk in the name of "public safety."

Long story short; Reagan was a commie, Barack Obama is the best president Republicans ever had. (Ezra Klein)
