It is good to learn the language of the white man,
Spelling bees are a ridiculous consequence of the illiterates who mashed English together and inhabit it today. In Italian you'd be insane holding contests for spelling, because the rules are simple and rigorous enough that not much thought is required for such a trivial matter. If only a fraction of the brainpower that is dedicated to rote memorization of English spellings, were directed instead to cleaning up the numerous deficiencies. Why is there a "p" in receipt?
It's the fault of Belgians and Dutchmen, who got paid by the line when various parties in the English Civil War needed Tracts printed: So many machines were smashed in England. They spelt English words according their native, pre-reformed local written "dialects" of French, Dutch, or Flemish as they saw fit.
Time for some Top-Down dictatorship of language, which is why every almost every other language (not just European) in the word is Easy to Spell.
Even "easy old Spanish" had a multitude of spelling variants until the King said "This is how it's going to be. Send me legal filings or documents not in this standardized format after X date, and they will be rejected."

The legislation marked the second consecutive loss for Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian, who carried a similar bill last year. The Los Angeles Democrat has complained that contracted drivers get a pass when other kinds of paid drivers -- taxis, buses, truckers and commercial pilots -- all submit to random drug testing.
B-bb-but, it's sharing, it's not like it's a job that people do to make money. They only drive to share costs with Uber and Lyft.

Silk Road taken down hard, owner may face murder charges,
That judge is an evil Statist who hates FREEDOM!
What's really funny is the naive glibertarians who talk about future marketplaces working on voluntaryism and contracts and happy feelings, where the first modestly successful attempt at offering a truly libertarian market place outside of control of government resulted in at least one earnest attempt to hire a contract killer.
