Trying to figure out the reporting requirements for ALL employers that is due by the 1st, with $1000 per day (per employee also?) for failure.
Then I hear some freaking demoncrat bitch is proposing a 16 week, mandatory, PAID, leave for new parents with NO exceptions. Small biz doesn’t have enough money to fight this shit.
Cripes, the next time you wonder why there are no jobs realize that every single month it seems to get more expensive (just found out a 8.5%-10% tax is coming on our insurance plans, ontop of the 1.5% we’ve been paying to the state this year), with more requirements, with penalties for failure to stay ontop of 50,000 new regulations all you earn and possibly jail.
I’m not fucking kidding and if those fucking morons above don’t pull their heads from their collective asses soon, all jobs barring gubment jackboots are going Galt.
I seriously, completely, utterly, cannot take the constant stress of gubment compliance and a brain-dead spouse.
Then I laugh a little, have an adult beverage – while I still can, and get up tomorrow and do it some more. But, everyday, the thought of saying FUCK IT and shutting the doors becomes more of a realistic and viable option.
I cannot be the only small employer feeling this way, we are so past FUBAR.
Apple Maps Route to AK Airport Runway Reactivated

To the chagrin and worry of Alaska transportation officials, Apple reactivated maps app directions Friday that guide drivers to the edge of a runway instead of a terminal at the Fairbanks airport.
Apple had notified Fairbanks International Airport officials that the faulty directions had been disabled.
Officials, though, noticed the app was back to giving the misguided directions on Friday and was also providing another route that leads to the taxiway.
They don’t know why the app was reactivated with more faulty directions.
Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple didn’t immediately return a message to The Associated Press on Friday evening.
One person intentionally followed the directions on Friday, which presents a dangerous situation for pilots and drivers, said Angela Spears, division operations manager for the Alaska Department of Transportation.
Alaska transportation officials sent out a warning to pilots that the faulty directions were back on.
Previous directions on newer iPhones and iPads guided drivers to the edge of the tarmac instead of the correct route to the terminal. In incidents Sept. 6 and Sept. 20, drivers went through a gate, past warning lights and signs, and then across an active runway, to reach the terminal.
There were no injuries since both incidents happened early in the morning between flights.
The first mishap involved an out-of-state visitor trying to return a rental car before a flight, and the second was an Alaska resident, not from Fairbanks, trying to get to the airport.
The airport has since barricaded that entrance to the taxiway. A sign posted there gives a phone number for people to call to get the correct directions to the airport.
After the first incident, airport authorities immediately attempted to contact Apple. The airport is a state facility, and the Alaska attorney general’s office also reached out to Apple Inc.’s legal department to get the map fixed.
Nice post, flash – only you didn’t need to do it twice.
Also, IndenturedServant, you are VERY observant as her mole did indeed slip from left to right. (Not many men will notice this, however!). Probably one picture got reversed on the way to posting.
If you’ve never peed in the ocean, you’ve never been to the beach. I do love that see-through bikini bottom though. So much promised, so little revealed!
@Teresa E. You are the most odd combination of extremely smart and stubborn woman I ever conversed with. You have a hubby with his head embedded firmly up his ass that provides you no support (which has got to be driving you up a wall!), every day at work you have to be frustrated more and more as Federal and State Governments pass ever more restrictive and expensive rules that you must abide by (and pay for out of your own pocket) and you damn well know what’s coming down the pike to finish driving you out of business (by regulating you to death or stealing all your profits) and still you bitch and moan and stick to it.
I thought long and hard about it 15 years ago and went “Galt”. Of course I hadn’t paid taxes for the 30 years before that by working overseas and when they took away my overseas tax break for a few years, I just wrote $200 a day per diem into my contracts (which continued to be tax free) which more than made up the difference. Back in 1979/80, I even wrote a 6 months review into the contract so that as the dollar dropped against the pound (I was working in Great Britain at the time) my per diem went up a little faster!
I’d still love to meet you someday ( so would my wife) and you can work on her with feminine logic to finish bringing her around to our way of thinking (I’ve done a pretty good job by myself over the years but a feminine input would tie a know in it)…
Keep up the good fight – but be ready to bail when the time is right for you..
