Yet another bit of the Obama legacy has to be plucked up by the roots and cast away–before it starts killing people.
Incredibly, the Obama Transportation Dept. and Federal Aviation Agency scrapped the rigorous testing regime that for long had governed the hiring of air traffic controllers–and replaced it with an easier test to “prioritize diversity” (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2018/06/04/faa-endangers-public-safety-by-emphasizing-diversity-over-competence-in-selection-of-air-traffic-controllers/). Because somehow the great idol of “diversity,” at least to the libs who worship it, is so much more important than getting airplanes safely from the air to the tarmac.
The new test gives applicants a bonus of 10 points if they say their worst subject in school was science (!), and another 10 if they can say they haven’t been working lately.
It’s backed by a union with a big purse for political campaign contributions.
Getting the planes up and down without crashing, especially in the crowded skies over the airports, is an exceedingly difficult job requiring the highest competence. It has nothing whatsoever to do with any kind of “diversity.” Slacking off on smarts and skills is playing with people’s lives.
Please remember stuff like this the next time you have the opportunity to vote. Never, never, never allow Democrats back into power. And pray the Trump administration is able to put a lid on this folly before any of these new diverse air traffic controllers who stink at science can find their way to a control tower.
