She seems nice. But a little light in the checkbook.

A woman is facing an $81,950 fine after she allegedly “spit at, headbutted, bit and tried to kick” flight crew and other passengers while restrained for her unruly behavior aboard a domestic flight last year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced Friday. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg spoke about the fine on ABC’s The View Friday.


$10.00 says she could kick Mayor Buttplug's ass.

The surcharge is "subject to change," always up and never down.

Amazon said Wednesday it plans to add a fuel and inflation surcharge of roughly 5% to existing fees it collects from U.S. third-party sellers who use the company’s fulfillment services.

The fee will go into effect in about two weeks, and is “subject to change,” the company said in a notice to sellers that was viewed by CNBC.

“The surcharge will apply to all product types, such as non-apparel, apparel, dangerous goods, and Small and Light items,” the notice stated. “The surcharge will apply to all units shipped from fulfillment centers starting April 28.”

As my colleague CBD so eleoquently stated in the current CJN podcast, Ukraine is a corrupt cesspool.

Clinton/Soros ‘Anti-Corruption’ Unit Head In Ukraine Fired – Admitted On Tape Working Against Trump

I met with Artem Sytnyk in 2015 as the new head of the Ukrainian ‘National Anti-Corruption Bureau’ (NABU) in Kyiv. At the time I was a national security columnist for The Washington Times.

Sytnyk gave me a song and dance about fighting corruption in Ukraine.

NEW SPEEDCAM APP LETS ANYONE, ANYWHERE SUBMIT EVIDENCE OF DRIVERS SPEEDING


A new app will allow any member of the public to submit evidence of other drivers speeding to the police.

Using AI to estimate the speed of a passing car, Speedcam Anywhere, has been created by a team of AI scientists with backgrounds in Silicon Valley companies and top UK universities, reports the Guardian.

The hope is it will encourage police to take speeding more seriously while enabling residents, pedestrians and cyclists to document traffic crimes in their area.

Messing around with a wireless device while driving........Hell that's more dangerous than speeding.

But will they accept a small town white male and/or female Christian conservative? Why am I wasting my breath?

Illinois State University (ISU) recently announced that it will be spending $4.5 million to create a Faculty Diversity Enhancement Program.

The seven-year program includes fives years dedicated to new faculty recruitment, all supported by "university general revenue funds, funds from the Office of the Provost, and matching funds from departments, schools, and colleges," ISU states on its website.

This effort is aimed at boosting diversity, equity, and inclusion at ISU. Accordingly, the university states that "[f]aculty who are a part of this program will advance teaching, scholarly, and creative productivity" in numerous fields, which include "driving social change" and "diversifying disciplinary fields."

Diversity isn't diverse.

Dear I.R.S. : YOU SUCK!
"Congresspersons are too busy raising campaign money to read the tax laws they pass. The laws are written by staff tax nerds who can put pretty much any wording they want in there. I bet that if you actually read the entire vastness of the U.S. Tax Code, you'd find at least one sex scene..." -- Dave Barry

American government is dysfunctional: this is not a secret. Even the most-clueless person will eventually bump up against some stupid, petty federal regulation, usually through no fault of their own, and then find that their "crime" is little more than the bureaucratic result of some poorly-trained, unionized, unmotivated clerk, who misfiled the required paperwork sometime between her 11:45 coffee break and 12:00 lunch hour.

(It is almost always a "her", though far be it from me to misgender a government-issue twit).

The Overlords have had a great deal of experience in dealing with Uncle Sam's moronic minions over the years, primarily because of Mrs. Overlord's physical disability, and I can say with complete and utter confidence that the two WORST-(non)functioning tentacles of the Fed'ral Kraken are, beyond doubt, the Social Security regime (which is hardly social, and apparently, the security part is subjective), and the Granddaddy of Ineffectuality, the Internal Fucking Revenue Fucking Service.


Since I completely agree with his sentiments towards the IRS I guess that makes us co-conspirators.

Is it really easier to ask for forgiveness rather than permission?

An English millionaire who notoriously built the “UK’s biggest man cave” in his backyard without planning permission, is now trying to prevent it from being torn down by buying up properties around it.

After an eight-year battle, millionaire businessman Graham Wildin was ordered to tear down the enormous man-cave complex on his property in Gloucestershire, but he has failed to do that. The 10,000sq/ft facility, which included a cinema, squash court, small casino and bowling alley, has now become the center of a fortress created by acquiring the properties around it, in an alleged attempt to stop the council from forcefully tearing it down. Although the deadline to level the luxurious man cave passed a month ago, the entire complex still stands.


See Fabulous Mrs. Mis. Hum. my Misanthrope's World isn't so big and opulent after all.
