    Their mommies must be awfully pround ...

    St. Louis Post Dispatch: TSA officers take part in college program

    Wow! Half a semester of college? To the best of my recollection I had 14 full semesters of college, until I realized that I preferred to be gainfully employed.

    And then, what? Can you get a baccalaureate or masters in gropage?

    If people at this educational & skill level were really at the forefront of national security, we'd be in really deep :trash:. Fortunately, most of us know better.

    Mike, you can be proud, like all Americans, for paying for this crap.:trash:
    I'm sure it's good business for the Community College as well.

    One 30 minute video and 4 hours on the job or work related experience equivalent away from a PhD!

    How much did they pay out in bribes to pass their classes?

    Looks like we'll bet getting better educated Gropenfrauen in all states ...

    Government Security News: TSA extends associates education program to all 50 states

    Retards with 3 courses at jr. college level are going to strengthen the security of our nation’s transportation systems? :td:

    If this wasn't so pathetic, it'd be laughable. I'm torn between laughing and crying.

    That's somewhat unfair to the good folks working real jobs at Goodwill Industries, and doing excellent work.

    Exactly. It's all about the money. Same with the war machine. It's a profit-making venture. And the profiteers don't give a flying f*** how many people are slaughtered along the way.

    Based on the comments they post on various sites, I believe that the majority of TSA employees could benefit most by getting a class or three in Remedial English.

    I don't think we should pay for it, though. They had a chance to learn it in high school, and failed.

    Merged these threads but kept Bill Fisher's more general thread title.

    Golly, gee, she's a college graduate now!

    You go, girl! :rolleyes:

    Somebody please queue up Stars & Stripes Forever so we can get misty eyed. :rolleyes:

    Does TSA have any concept as to how all these fluff pieces about their magnificent three-course curriculum only underscore how they are hiring at the bottom of the barrrel?

    Having spoken to more than a few people who've gone through the process, they're not hiring at the bottom of the barrel.

    It's just that the ones at the bottom of the barrel are the ones retained. The rest move on to real jobs as quickly as possible.

    Is this program being funded with tax dollars? If so why? Why should TSA workers not have to pay for their own education by the same means everyone else has to use?

    Sounds like Fraud, Waste, and Abuse by DHS.

    Many employers do. Mine will reimburse all through undergrad & grad school for business & engineering majors working full-time & studying part-time. But around here an effort focused on 3 junior-college course would be a non-starter.

    I don't have an issue with funding education, as long as it's a real education. They should be pushing these intellectually challenged Gropenfrauen into college math & English composition, etc. If they want to get ahead, they need to emphasize mastering the basic skills.

    Some PT wouldn't hurt most of them.

    :cupcake::cupcake::cupcake: There's just no pleasing you people, is there? You all complain about how our Officers are not properly trained, and when we do offer them some educational opportunities, you still complain. :cupcake::cupcake::cupcake:

    Just thought I would throw that out there since Bart and SATTSO have not been around much. :rolleyes::p

  19. And then, after the basic skills, maybe they should be routed into critical thinking, logic, anatomy and physiology, ethics, civics, multiculturalism... anything I missed?

    ETA: Foreign languages? History of the Soviet Union? The works of Solzhenitsyn?
