New preferential pricing could take off at some major airlines, as providers are looking at ways to charge passengers based on their online shopping habits.

People who spend more may find themselves paying higher prices. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is preemptively asking the federal government to protect passengers from technology that uses personal information such as income to affect pricing.

Schumer says under the policy, two flyers sitting next to each other could be given two different prices based on their internet browsing history, online purchasing, or even income level.

Travel expert Peter Trabucco says the idea mixes big brother with big business.

“This is a dangerous precedent to do something like this,” he told CBS2’s Meg Baker. “You have to be careful how to go about doing that.”

Aviation expert Brian Summers says most airlines have antiquated computer systems that may delay the preferential pricing from happening any time soon.

But airlines could target certain types of travelers.

“They do want to get to a world where if they know you’re a business traveler and you’re travelling to Europe and have to get there immediately, they may show you the most expensive ticket first,” he said.

There are some corporate democrats (See the fags who voted to deregulate the banks and set us up for another crash) But no where at the level of corruption you see with Republicans.

Remember when Trump just repealed a law that said financial advisors have to work in the best interests of their clients?
>They should be able to charge whatever they wish, yes, but if they're charging people different rates for the exact same service then that's clearly in violation of both consumer protection laws and also basic human decency.
Normally they'd charge rich people more and poor people less. Not because of social justice or whatever, but because you can make a lot more money that way.
Yes, you can, but you really shouldn't.

>Remember when Trump just repealed a law that said financial advisors have to work in the best interests of their clients?
No, I don't. Sauce?
>Yes, you can, but you really shouldn't.
As a relatively wealthy person I'd really, really, really fucking hate it if they charged me twice as much to travel to Japan (because I'd still go), but at the end of the day the principle isn't that objectionable: if a seller of, say, cruise packages, wants to offer a discount to poor people, that's not completely unreasonable. Poor people can't afford it normally so they get charged less. Nothing inherently objectionable about that on the face of it.

In practice they'd probably just price fix to double the price for the middle class while pretending not to collude with each other but, you know, free markets. Or something.
I think it is completley unreasonable even on the face of it, and I don't think the excuse "well these people can afford it" is a valid one in the slightest.

California has its first illegal alien in state office, after Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) appointed Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.
Mateo, an attorney, was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. illegally at the age of 14 with her parents, who are also illegal aliens, according to the Sacramento Bee.

She complained that illegal aliens are not adequately represented in state government, and described her appointment as a step towards correcting that alleged injustice.

“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,”

She came here as a child and lived most of her life here.

You'd have a point if she were an economic migrant who came over as an undocumented adult from mexico or wherever.
But she could not have been expected to stay out of the country that then became her home if she wanted as a kid, if her guardians brought her here.

Maybe some folks say the illegal immigration problem is so bad that we have to deport her or expect her to live without the means to support herself. So she would essentially be paying to right a problem that wasn't her fault to begin with.

But you can't begrudge someone wanting to do better for themselves and wanting representation in their own home. You at least should recognize she's not personally responsible for the illegal immigration.
While I agree in principle, we do have to draw a line at some point to prevent people from shuttling kids into the country because we won't deport them. While I don't know of a good way to do this, it is something that is becoming more prevalent and the obstinance of both sides to openly discuss the issue is only going to make it worse when it becomes too much
>You at least should recognize she's not personally responsible for the illegal immigration.

I categorically won't. She is directly responsible for not repatriating back to her home country. This is NOT her home. Did she even bother to get in line? No? Then she's responsible. If this was her home and she wasn't mexican but rather American, she wouldn't virtue signal for politics, she'd get a fucking green card and become an American.

Don't give me this "she was just a kid" shit. She's a woman now, and her actions 18+ are what I am 100% morally justified in judging.

Same goes for any person 18+ who's here illegally. If you were a kid, you should get two options: a free ride to your home country, or expatriation from it and naturalization here with an obligation to either military or community service and getting a job/college career in place, not infinite "she dindu nuffins."
>Did she even bother to get in line?
Did you?

>she'd get a fucking green card and become an American.
This is called "amnesty" and the United States doesn't allow it at this time.

>or expatriation from it and naturalization here
That's not an option for these people.

The archdiocese of Naples says it has sent the Vatican a 1,200-page dossier compiled by a male escort identifying 40 actively gay priests and seminarians in Italy.

In a statement on the diocesan website, Cardinal Cresenzio Sepe said none of the identified priests worked in Naples. But he said he decided to forward the file to the Vatican because “there remains the gravity of the cases for which those who have erred must pay the price, and be helped to repent for the harm done.”

The dossier, containing WhatsApp chats and other evidence, was compiled by a self-proclaimed gay escort, Francesco Mangiacapra. He has told Italian media that he outed the priests because he couldn’t stand their hypocrisy any longer.

None of the 34 priests or six seminarians was accused of having sex with minors, Mangiacapra was quoted as saying in the diocesan statement.

“We’re talking about sins, not crimes,” the escort was quoted as saying in the statement.

It’s the latest sex scandal to convulse the Italian church and the Vatican.

Being priest is like any other fucking job and you engage in shady acts don't be surprised when someone blows the whistle on you.

All just hypothetical. Regardless of their stance they engaged in acts unbefitting of a priest and they got caught.
Most pedos are gays.
Just give it some time, it will show up, eventually.
The Church literally retconned a bunch of shit at the council of Nicaea. They can (and have) gone back on all sorts of shit.

What an asshole. Were these priests all hardcore anti-gay types? It's pretty fucking scummy to out a bunch of people like that.
They're priests. They're lying hypocrites if they're having sex, especially premarital sex, and especially gay sex. I'm glad the fag did it.

Researchers are on a critical mission in the heart of Broward County — bashing in the brains of iguanas in an attempt to eliminate the reptiles that have overtaken South Florida.

A 15-member team from the University of Florida is using a tool called a captive bolt gun that sends a bolt into the brain, similar to what is used in the livestock industry. They’re also smashing the creatures’ heads against solid objects, including a truck and boat they’re using to track them down.

“Most of what we’re doing is blunt force trauma,” said Jenny Ketterlin, a wildlife biologist and research coordinator with UF. “Hitting their head very hard against a solid object.”

Destroying their brains quickly is the most humane way to kill them, she said. Decapitating the animals without anesthesia would kill them but not be considered humane.

Their work is part of a $63,000 research project, contracted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, designed to find the best way to remove iguanas and then offer tips to homeowners on how to purge the pests from their yards.

“Iguanas are an invasive species in Florida and can be a nuisance to homeowners or impact native wildlife,” said Carli Segelson, a wildlife agency spokeswoman. “Iguanas can feed on native plants and wildlife and dig into areas that may cause erosion.”

The research team’s methods may sound gruesome but are in keeping with the state’s anti-cruelty laws, Ketterlin said.

So far, working in teams of two, the researchers have captured and killed 249 iguanas along a canal in Davie that runs parallel to Griffin Road. They sneak up on the creatures at night while they’re asleep, then kill them on the spot.

You know in the caribbean, iguana is considered a delicacy right? Their meat is considered "sweet". Just saying
I've had iguana in Panama
It's frowned upon to actually kill them for culinary purposes I found out.
I really love the contrast of treatment against illegal immigrants and foreign animals.
People already breed iquanas though, they sell for more as exotic pets than as food. Its Florida, despite the smell and indigenous IQ its not the same as colonial era india.

Democrat Conor Lamb is the apparent winner over Republican Rick Saccone in Tuesday's special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, according to an NBC News projection.

Lamb, who declared victory early Wednesday morning, was leading by 641 votes in a district long held by the GOP that President Donald Trump, who backed Saccone, carried by 20 points in 2016. Saccone has not conceded and his campaign is in touch with legal counsel.

Shortly before 1:00 a.m., Lamb was introduced as "congressman-elect" at his election night party.

"It took a little longer than we thought, but we did it!" Lamb told cheering supporters.

Lamb, 33, was already looking ahead to Capitol Hill, saying, "Our job in Congress is to attack the problems, not each other."

Earlier, Saccone, 60, addressed his supporters and stopped short of any declarations.

"We're not giving up," Saccone said at about 11:30 p.m. "We're going to be working late into the night, tomorrow...Don't give up! We're going to win it!"

>Would you say he's really pro-suffrage?
Um yeah.

I'm as conservative as I can be personally, but i don't give a shit about what other people do when it comes to abortion, marriage whatever the fuck. That makes me a democrat, not a conservative.
It's a bit late, but here's an article that gives figure for prominent contributors and a rough timeline.

>It wasnt entirely corporate, though the irony that the only outside money for Lamb came from "End Citizens United" is palpable
Must you lie so blatantly? Lamb had a larger war chest because he had a much stronger ground game and base where a majority of his money came from small donations. Sacc was so disorganized a majority of his money came from out of state to prop him up where he outspent Lamb over 4 to 1.

Also, we don't know if he's pro-choice/pro-life.
Fun fact, the Republicans tried to run on the tax cuts they gave to corporations, but had to pull the ads because they either had no effect or will dragging down Saccone's numbers. That is not a good sign for Republicans if their only major legislative 'achievement' is dragging down

CNN is garbage tier.
>lurk more, holy shit. there's currently a post about a news article from CNN that "reached out to 4chan for a comment"
That means fucking nothing. CNN can reach out to the State Department for a comment. Does that mean that they think the State Department is a single person? Of course not. They're looking for the leader or a media representative. The only people making a big deal about that thread are acting deliberately retarded.

But EVEN if we gave you the benefit of the doubt, the responsibility would still be on you to prove that any given other article was a piece of shit.

A 17-year-old boy has been jailed for 10 and a half years for attacking six moped riders with acid while trying to steal their bikes.

Derryck John, from Croydon, previously admitted carrying out the attacks in the north and east of London on 13 July last year.
He sprayed the riders in the face with a noxious liquid, stole two mopeds and attempted to take another four.
One of the victims was left with "life-changing injuries", police said.
Judge Noel Lucas QC described John's "grave crimes" against members of the public as "despicable and cowardly".

A new video from Vice News published Friday focuses on a healing retreats for “Women of Color” where participants can go to get away from white people.

The founder says that white people are so destructive that they “shouldn’t even have passports.”

The retreat is called the “Women of Color Healing Retreat” and takes place in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Vice News notes that it “specifically banned white people.”

The narrator notes that one attendee “needed a break–from white people.”

The founder, Andrea X, expressed the opinion that white people–but white Americans specifically, shouldn’t be allowed to have passports or travel.

“I have no tips for a white person” she said. “My tip to white people is to let us have our space, let us have our room, and go hang out with other white people. We’re okay. You know, you’ve done enough damage.”

Andrea X also says that she “decided one day to just eliminate white people from my personal life” due to “microaggressions” and “passive-aggressiveness.”

Since December 2016, Congress has given the State Department $120 million to counter foreign attempts to hijack U.S. elections and sow distrust in American democracy, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has spent none of that money, The New York Times reports. "As a result, not one of the 23 analysts working in the department's Global Engagement Center — which has been tasked with countering Moscow's disinformation campaign — speaks Russian, and a department hiring freeze has hindered efforts to recruit the computer experts needed to track the Russian efforts."

Tillerson, who's been "focusing his energies instead on drastically shrinking the department," spent seven months thinking about whether he even wanted to spend the original $60 million Congress set aside to coordinate a government-wide response to anti-democracy propaganda from Russia and China, the Times reports, and when the State Department finally sent over its request in September, "with just days left in the fiscal year, Pentagon officials decided that the State Department had lost its shot at the money." After months of haggling, the State Department said last week it will take $40 million from this fiscal year's $60 million allotment, and it expects the Pentagon to transfer the funds in April, half a year before the midterms.

The Global Engagement Center currently toils to counter jihadist and extremist propaganda, and its 23 analysts speak Arabic, Urdu, French, and Somali. The Trump administration has "the vehicle to do this work in the center," James Glassman, the State Department's under secretary for public diplomacy, tells the Times. "What they don't have is a secretary of state or a president who's interested in doing this work."

>don't all unanimously agree that leprechauns exist

And if they did agree?
Then you'd have to conclude that there's a lizard man conspiracy controlling all these agencies and forcing them to say retarded things.

To begin with the primary reason you (and everyone else) don't believe in leprechauns is because everybody agrees they don't exist.
Then we would have the RTD (rainbow tracker division), a branch of the CIA who tracks down pots of gold to fund black projects with untracable money.
>Rainbow Six is actually the name of the CIA's covert leprechaun tracking program
>they let Tom Clancy use the name as a cover so all references to the program would be assumed to be related to the novel/video games

Didnt tom clancy get arrested for accidentally figuring out US sub secrets while writing his books and they thought he had classified info?

Not entirely. Everyone who was listening, including the flight attendant, knew there was an animal in there. The flight attendant certainly deserves more blame than anyone else, since she was requesting the animal be stored in the overhead bin, she should have then been aware whether it would have been placed under duress there.
Yeah, he should have let himself get dragged off the flight and be fined for it. Thats what happens if you dont obey.

>LONDON (AP) -- The use of Russian-developed nerve agent Novichok to poison ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter makes it "highly likely" that Russia was involved, British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday.

>Novichok refers to a class of nerve agents developed in the Soviet Union near the end of the Cold War. The agents were ostensibly created in an attempt to avoid the international chemical weapons treaty that had just been signed; any new substances wouldn't be subject to past treaties.

>Novichok behaves slightly differently than other nerve agents, with some reports that the class of substances is deadlier than similar chemicals like sarin or VX and harder to identify.

>"Novichok agents significantly extend the range of possibility for nerve agents," said Andrea Sella, a professor of inorganic chemistry at University College London. There are five known nerve agents, which are mostly colorless liquids that can kill within minutes, if ingested.

>"With Novichok, you have the potential for a slower-release agent, which gives you much more control," Sella said. "Using Novichok makes it pretty clear that it was likely Russia that was behind this."

>Gary Stephens, a pharmacology expert at the University of Reading, noted that the component ingredients of Novichok nerve agents aren't on the banned list.

>"It means the chemicals that are mixed to create it are much easier to deliver with no risk to the health of the courier," he said.

Foreign Minister of Ukraine declares ex-spy Skripal as an active russian spy.

"The latest developments related to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in the UK are of great concern. Given the data of the British special services and taking into account the fact that the answer of the Russian side is hypocritical and not credible, we are ready to support the opinion of the Prime Minister of Great Britain that this is most likely the work of the Kremlin, "Klimkin said.

According to him, this case "indicates a significant escalation of Russian aggression against one of the leading democracies of the West and Ukraine's closest ally."

He also assured that the government of Ukraine closely follows the situation and discusses it with top British officials.

"It seems that this is indeed the alarm bell that should wake the West, at least I really hope so. Now the West has to react in a way that would make Russia feel the consequences of its actions. One of the first goals should be the World Cup, which will be held next summer. Russia does not deserve to host such a prestigious tournament. Ideally, I would like Russia to be deprived of the right to hold this event, "the Ukrainian Foreign Minister does not hide his intentions.

If the boycott of the championship is impossible because of a lack of time, the minister continues, "all nations and freedom-loving people" must boycott the tournament.

"Holding it in Russia will not unite the peoples of the world, but will only enrich Russia and give it a powerful propaganda tool, which it simply does not deserve. The free world must take a very tough stance and act decisively in a way that Russia understands that no one will tolerate the criminal-terrorist methods that it uses. It is necessary to do this now, until it's too late, "Klimkin urges.

It is worth noting that it is much more appropriate to call Skripal not a Russian, but a British spy, because in Russia he spied in favor of the services of Great Britain.
US just backed the Brits, maybe Trump has a spine for once
