Diversity more important than peoples lives

Postby BDKJMU » Sun Jun 10, 2018 12:03 am

According to the Obama admin it was. I remember hearing about this 3 years ago.

I thought that nonsense had been stopped. Well apparently not. Shocking, because
its maybe the most important civilian job in the fed govt considering the amount of training required, the stress, and that a mistake could kill hundreds of people. Yet to folks in the Obama admin that was secondary to having more diversity, the safety of the flying public be damned. :ohno:

If Tucker Carlson says it , it must be true.

In evolutionary terms, Carlson is between Sean Hannity and a trilobite.

It's 100% true. See the Fox Business report on it several years ago.

The actual ATC exam was replaced with (get this) a personality test.

It's not the first certification exam dubbed racist. Police and firefighter exams are apparently racist as well.
We get the government we deserve. :nod:

Not to mention the housekeeping nightmare of fried chicken grease all over the radar displays.
To the left, illegal aliens are "dreamers", patriots are "deplorable", islam is the “religion of peace” and NRA members are "terrorists"

I'll agree with you on that one. The "diversity" thing is a crock.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star

But I’ll bet anything if Trump were to reverse this ruling you’d be first in line to call him an imbecilic traitorous idiotic moronic unstable dipshit for doing it.

I'd call him a thoroughly dishonest and immoral person with serious emotional maturity and stability issues because he's a thoroughly dishonest and immoral person with serious emotional maturity and stability issues regardless of whether he takes an action I agree with in any particular case. And I'd say that, in spite of him taking an action I agree with in a particular case, the fact that this country elected somebody like that to be President is not a good thing.
