Wow! they're interested in becoming firemen because of the benefits? THAT shoots the "nobility" and "selflessness" and "bravery" all to sh!t, now doesn't it?But he also said the process for getting a job in the fire department is a rigorous one, and that the process has become even more competitive because it offers good benefits.
"c-o-m-p-e-t-i-t-i-o-n "... "c-o-m-p-e-t-e-n-t". .. YES: competent people tend to do better than incompetent ones in a competition. it's kind of self-defining, isn't it? For ANY race.That competition eliminates many people who try to join the department, from all racial backgrounds.
And kudos to them! THESE are the ones who believe in active self-betterment to increase their station in life, rather than crying 'foul' and 'racism' and sitting on their a$$e$ until some race-baiter wins some decision in court that they don't deserve.The competition for promotions is even more intense, he said, with some firefighters studying night and day for months or years to prepare for the examinations they must pass to advance in rank.
