There's been a shortage of pilots for a while now.

What this could really screw over is both the pilots' families if they're forced to give up civilian pilot pay to go back into the military and also a lot of airlines instantly losing a sizeable number of their pilots.

Kelly is a dumb asshole who was happy doing horrible shit at DHS. He's complicit in all of this.

let him come with normal security

who cares if he gets his ass beat, if he wants more security that's on him.

eta if the Nazis are the ones who start shit, put a bullet in their head
That is legal iirc, but also doesn't work for the university, as the danger isn't only to the speaker. The university is paying this much to protect its students and its property, not just the speaker.

Ban the Nazis from speaking and arrest/beat them if they show up.


eta I don't know what the actual solution to disingenuous trolling of universities by right-wing shitheads including literal Nazis is, but it isn't bending over backwards to the detriment of your own institution in the name of "free speech"

okay, cut out the middle steps and skip straight to my last recommendation!

Universities shouldn't be forced to spend an entire department's annual budget to provide security so a Nazi can come speak on campus. Nobody gains a single thing from that.
Huh. Is that really an entire annual department budget? Especially at a large state school like UF (according to wiki, enrollment 52k)?

for small departments, sure

you've already got a death spiral in academia with more and more poorly paid adjuncts and fewer full time professor positions. and TA's paid a tiny amount and struggling to get by. but nope can't spend money on actual educational value, need to have a Nazi on campus instead!

No I mean people who are gaga for the economic status quo and social issues aren't really relevant to my classification.

Macron is shit and is going to usher in either Nazis or radical leftists in the next election

The sooner centrist neoliberalism is killed the better.

Trump doesn't have the self-control to do that.

A competent fascist elected in 8 or 12 years could pull it off, though.

I guess we should give the GOP some credit. They've been saying for decades that government is the problem, not the solution. I guess they keep wanting to get elected to prove that they're correct. 

- hey man I think there's something wrong with your windshield
- what? no, it's fine, no cracks in it or anything
- no, but, really, *smashes windshield with a tire iron*, see, look, i think it's pretty broken, buddy, and by the way *sets car on fire, murders entire family*. see what i mean? we should really do something about this problem, *steals other guy's wallet and walks away whistling*

hope you enjoyed my delightful mini-play

Shooter had rented two hotel rooms overlooking Lollapalooza in Chicago but never showed. That would have been about 100k people there instead of 22k.

Holy shit that's awful.
