Default RE: License Question

I strongly disagree that there is any circumstantial evidence that other perople are breaking any rules simply because the they don't want the FAA poking around. If you don't want to go so far as to say the FAA are bad guys, at the very least I'm completely confident they're not the good guys either. The FAA is the 800 pound gorilla and can make anyone's flying career or activity miserable. Look into the Bob Hoover story, if you care to. Being a large, powerful government organization, the FAA can outspend any innocent person accused of any infraction. Equivalent logic flows to the IRS... I don't want them poking around either, and that does not imply anything about my compliance or non-compliance with the tax laws. If a tax cheat gets caught, fine. If innocent people get targeted because they share an interest or a physical space with him, that's what people are afraid of.
