The importance of no

Democrats called the republicans the party of no. Did they realize they were giving a compliment?

Control freaks always want more. Take for example the NASA CCIDC (Commercial Crew Integrated Design Contract) which uses safety as the red herring for taking control away from private companies. They would have gotten away with it except for one thing: Elon said no.

He did it very diplomatically, "We may not bid on it."

NASA got the message and their plans for universal domination were foiled (for this round. Control freaks never give up.)

The sad thing is, I didn't hear any of the other contractors come out and say the same thing which they should have. I am greatly saddened that these principles are not more universally held.
