    "No longer accepting donations"
    Guess he's gonna have to settle with $1500. At the rates he was quoted, that should buy him enough Hobbs time to taxi around the ramp to the fuel pump

    Well, maybe someone finally set Go Fund Me straight. He never admitted to all the the boats, the cars, the credit cards, the money, over 100 various homes and businesses that he burglarized, and the shoplifting on his Go Fund Me page. He's never even shown any remorse for what he has done either. It's always someone else's fault or his circumstances or some other b.s. excuse. I love planes and flying so much I'll just steal five of them. It's all a lark for him. All he cares about is himself. The hell with his victims.

    He won't even bother trying to work and save the money himself like the vast majority of pilots have to do, he just believes people should shower him with money because he is so special.

    He even ran a previous scam Go Fund Me page claiming to try and raise money for his terminally ill Mother (she had terminal lung cancer) to raise $230,000 to have her cryogenically preserved. He did that just this year while he was still in prison!

    He's a long time criminal, a con artist and a worthless POS who has learned nothing, as far as I am concerned. How about getting a job and working the rest of your life to re-pay your hundreds of victims for their property that you damaged or destroyed and all the money and thousands of items that you stole? Oh hell no, it's about him and what he wants without having to earn one cent of it.

    I can point you in the direction of a current ATP holder that was arrested for domestic abuse and tried to perform an exorcism on their spouse in an effort to rid them of the demons. The arrest affidavit is quite humorous. I wish I was kidding.

    I saw it, but it stood as much a chance as an armadillo on a Texas highway.

    Not necessarily The Kardashians as much as it is teaching an entire generation of children that you can be a talentless assclown and we can either (a) autotune you into being a pop star if you have the right look or (b) get you enough YouTube hits that you can make a living for being recognizable, not particularly talented or skillful.

    Quoted for being the absolute truth.

    I fear what our future has become as a result of this.

    Don't worry, the vast majority have been raised well, that's why you haven't heard about them. The phone addicts aren't going to be in charge anytime soon. My niece's favorite hobby is reading books, actual paper books, she prefers them to a Kindle. Her younger brother seems to have an affinity for aircraft, he's only 6 but I think a discovery flight is a must.

    This current up and coming one seems pretty shot (or should be). I think the whole "internet" generation is really a small but very vocal subset of our society. I think it's less than 10%. But because of their popularity everyone thinks everyone else is like that. Time for a wake up call.

    I'm big on paper books as well. When traveling I'll do the kindle thing for weight but when I am home NOTHING beats a good paperback in the hammock on a sunny day. Ok....well maybe there are a couple of things that beat it.
