I wish United all of the luck in the world convincing their passengers that the flight crew isn’t part of an affirmative action program. 

Think of the most brilliant marketing campaign you’ve ever heard in your life. Now think of the complete opposite. That’s where United finds themselves.

Unless we straighten out this voter fraud problem we have with the left it can only get worse

How is it that a group you think is too dumb to know how to get photo ID is smart enough to become a pilot? 

Or are we going to skip the testing altogether and move straight to the ****? 

I do have to say that this is on par with every other stupid idea the left has foisted on this country recently.

Depends on how you give them a hand up.  You wish to hire 50 pilots.  You get 75 applicants.  Do you take the 50 best pilots regardless if only 20 of them are minorities and women or do you water down the requirements to get 5 more to meet your 50% quota?

Personally I want the top 50 who meet the requirement all must meet.  But, you could put your money where your mouth is and figure out how to fly with those who do not meet the standard requirements.  

And is the pilot pool in the country able to take help meet that requirement?

You create a standard.  All that meet it get in the pool and women and minorities are given preference.


This is not top gun.  It's not that hard to become a pilot

Thank you.

Please let me share.

"Invictus".  (Latin)  (google).

A poem.
And, the name of my sailboat that I lived on for 8 years.

" My head is bloody...............but unbowed.
  I am the Captain of my fate.
  I am the Master of my soul".

Peace, cowgirl.
