Got this email from the AMA.
In a Valentine of sorts for the hobby of model aviation, President Obama signed a new FAA Reauthorization Bill on February 14 that included a provision to protect model aviation under the auspices of a "community-based organization" from federal regulations. "This is a great victory for AMA members," said AMA president Bob Brown, "and we will continue to fight for the entire aeromodeling community should restrictions ever be proposed."
I may not like the guy, but at least he has done something right.

Gas is $5 a gallon, his Energy Secretary publicly declares that it is their policy to keep gas prices high, and the Kool Aid drinkers want more!

why would OBAMA get any credit for this.Did he even know anything about everything that went into this or did he just sign it as part of a bigger bill?he problably knew almost NOTHING about the specifics of the parts regarding us.

It says a lot that this would even be considered one of the highlights of his first 4 years in office

I'd say it's more likely because of the AMA, EAA and AOPA that we were spared. Make sure you support these organizations. Only shear numbers are going to help us in the future.

You Obama haters, get ready for four more years.
Btw, if you have not figured it out yet, it's not one man but all of us. So get a grip and make some changes for the good. We are all in this together. The world will always change and the future can be bright.

Before you get to tooting TO Loud !

You better do a bit of Home Work and examine the Lettuce " LOT's" that is attached to it. Now being dictated to the Organization.

Don't Forget at one time we were a self policing organization.

Now everyone else ----on the Fed Level w/ Rules is responsible for setting the regulation's that govern the Hobby. " YOU "
Best thing was the AMA saved our AZZ's and kept the Dog's at bay.

We screwed up for lack of common sense and accountability, and they came knocking -

Now you are under very stiff regulation's and requirement's -- At least till another screw up.

Then they will step on the Sport Like a BUG !
