Obama Budget to Kill FFDO Program
#1
A pilot friend of mine sent me this today.

"An FFDO in the cockpit costs the government only $15 per flight segment to manage the program, a very small price to secure our skies. Yes, the spending habits in Washington, DC need to change, but reform must turn towards more efficient, more productive programs like the volunteer FFDO program in order to achieve lasting, true fiscal discipline.

The FFDO program has already been starved for funding. Pilots who choose to participate are serving their country and performing a patriotic duty, yet they shoulder the costs associated with their training themselves. The program has been a constant victim of administrative problems, due in part to the lack of funding in place now. Further cuts would only exacerbate problems and could ultimately lead to the demise of the program. We cannot let this happen. We are committed to saving the FFDO program, a cost-efficient and integral part of our aviation security system, and ALPA-PAC’s efforts on Capitol Hill are essential to our efforts."

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.

It almost seems like they, oh, I don't know, WANT another incident to help them push for more security.

But, they'd never do that. Angel

god, you're daft. don't you know this is FOR OUR SAFETY?! do you even know how many times a pilot has held a gun to his own head and hijacked his own plane? I read a cbs poll and it said that it was a lot. do you hate children? you must be drunk off of all that white privledge you've been drinking.

I hope I don't have to say this but... [/sarcasm]

I read the same poll. It was ABC, BTW. It was also plastered all over twitter, so it must be true. Wink
