An expensive Father's Day or Ooops!!!!

Parenthood is filled with all kinds of expenses—both expected and unexpected. As it turns out, children need food and clothes and all kinds of stuff. And sometimes, if you’re especially unlucky, they break expensive artwork and you’re left holding the bill.

That’s precisely what happened to a couple from Kansas, whose 5-year-old son broke a sculpture—titled “Aphrodite Di Kansas City,” made of glass and pieces of mirror—by “hugging” it. Now his parents are being asked to pay the estimated $132,000 that the piece is worth. The family was attending a wedding at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park when the boy—who was unattended at the moment—wrapped his arms around the piece and caused it to fall to the ground, breaking it.

Oh no!! People making $100,000 per year are destitute.

They better not ask the people of Green Bay, WI.

Let's face it, wages and salaries are dictated by regions, including but not limited the cost of living, education, occupation and experience. What is a shit-ton of money in Newton, IA is not in NYC.

Target, always on the cutting edge of societal norms?

Target veered out of the politically correct lane the retailer likes to travel in with a Father’s Day card featuring a black couple that included the phrase “Baby Daddy.”

The controversy was prompted by social media users such as Takeisha Saunders, who shared a photo of the card on Facebook.

“”You CANNOT be serious Target!!!! Really!!!?!!!!? This was the only Father’s Day card that featured a black couple!!!!!!” Saunders wrote, including a series of hashtags.

Twitter loses in court. CA judge allows deleted Twitter account holder to sue.


Last year, Twitter purged a significant amount of far-right and white nationalist accounts as part of its updated terms of service. The purge led to many cries of free speech violations from members of those aforementioned groups, and now, one white nationalist is taking the social network to court.

That would be Jared Taylor, founder of the white nationalist publication American Renaissance. Taylor first sued Twitter in February for banning his account, an action he claimed “violated civil rights and contract law,” the Verge reports.

You have your dairy farmers. You have your cash crop farmers. You have your Body Farmers. Your what? Body farmers.

We didn't have this 'Green' thing back then.

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags are not good for the environment.

The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, “We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days.”

The young clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations.”

Tomorrow DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowoitz is expected to testify before Congress. Some people are putting their eggs in one basket.

Michael Horowitz, the DOJ inspector general, will testify Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, defending his report. He will be praised and attacked for his work product. But the politics ultimately will take a back seat to fact-based evidence that will eventually put a lot of individuals in jail.

The idea of people (FBI agents, etc) going to jail is Pollyannaish.
