Empty threats! Let's fire all the Air Traffic Controllers, do away with any airport security (terrorist are over rated anyway) and the FAA with their burdensome regulations about airplanes that catch on fire due to design errors.

The private sector will take care of all this egregious government intrusion into their for profit business.

The 'highly paid' flight attendants will be happy to serve drinks as you plummet toward your fiery destination.
