Washington (CNN)-- The federal government will close 173 air traffic control towers at small- and medium-size airports on April 7 because of forced spending cuts, the Federal Aviation Administration told tower operators Tuesday. It will close another 16 towers on September 30, the end of the fiscal year.

Gobernut needs to remember when they close something they no longer control it.

We all know how Gobernut loves to control everything, well at least they love to control what Unions want them to control. Like Booze stores, Unions don't want to allow sunday sales of booze. So Gobernut keeps booze stores closed on sunday.

Whatever happened to Gobernut by the PEOPLE for the PEOPLE??

Now it's by the UNIONS for the UNIONS.

What we have is the tail wagging the dog.

It's time for freedom by the PEOPLE for the PEOPLE!!
