    I would rather fly planes if I had a choice. The FAA swamp would be a real headache to try to reform.

    ... congressman Graves and the current actor has been floated around too. Graves would have some additional support from the GA crowd. Quite honestly, the swamp would be easy to drain if the Adminstator's back was covered by the DOT Secretary and the "biggly one"!! The deputy and associate administrators are part of the "deep state" and "revolving door". The next levels of "swamp" that "empire build" are the "executive directors" and their minions. This level caused my injuries and disability. Once you get below that level, you start getting to the worker bees.

    It's been a bad year for crashes. It's time to stop the "empire building deep state" and "Drain the Swamp"!! Get the agency back to doing the core mission!!

    Yeah, but someone in the know has to do it. Duty to country calls above all else.

    The new Administrator is the pick of the president. John Dunkin will be nominated and his back will be covered by the DOT Secretary and The Presidnet.

    All the "swamp things" will go and be replaced with people that will do the job......"DRAIN THE FAA SWAMP"

    It's been reported that the Senate won't confirm the "biggly one's great pilot". The "Swamp Creatures" continue to fight change. The two people that the "established ones" want are "revolving door" people. They are, the current "acting adminstator" Mr. Elwell and another "former actor" Mr. Sturgell.

    We'll see how this shakes out. The Senate will "stonewall" the selection they don't like, just out of spite.

    "Drain the Swamp"!!

    ...so....??? when will the new "Administrator" be named and confirmed?? Only 99 more days until a "Regulator's Reauthorization" is due. Wonder if this will be all tied together??
