Comment From where does the FAA get power to regulate it? (Score 1) 18

I'm curious:

Where does the FAA claim it gets the power to regulate drones which are only engaged in INTRA-state commerce and flying too low to interfere with interstate air traffic? Seems to me that's the state's job.

(Similarly with the FCC and radio signals that are too weak to be decoded outside the state of origin or substantially interfere with reasonable interstate services. Sure "radio goes on forever". But so does sound - with the same inverse-square law and similar interference characteristics - and we get along just fine without federal regulation of speech and bullhorns.)

Maybe- after all, trolling against Trump is still *free publicity* and with a warchest 1/40th the size of Hilary's, he needs all the free publicity he can get- even when it is negative.

Both belong in jail, not on the campaign trail, but Americans are idiots who buy into publicity and never do any research themselves.

It's easy to prove the existence of morality from natural law that human beings did not create, and gravity combined with LSD and high places is a great example. No matter how much the human brain under the influence wants to fly, gravity WILL exert a moral pressure not to- usually quite violently.

Just because you don't agree with somebody's specific version of reason, does not mean reason does not exist- unless of course they're specifically denying reason and will kill your priests and nuns for you giving the above speech (I think maybe 20 people in Africa and the middle east lost their lives over Pope Benedict using a quote from a 8th century Patriarch of Constantinople in this university lecture on the use of reason in religion).
