Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Better a witty fool than a foolish wit. William Shakespeare


Quote II

Before a man speaks it is always safe to assume that he is a fool. After he speaks, it is seldom necessary to assume it. H. L. Mencken


Quote III

I've searched all the parks in all the cities and found no statues of committees. Gilbert K. Chesterton


Quote D

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. Mark Twain

If you are in Sweden, you are free to roam about the country. No. Not really. Fake news.

Malmö, Sweden's third-largest city, houses over 300,000 people, as of 2017. Despite its modest size, the town has a crime rate equal to that of vastly larger cities. The local police are barely able to investigate murders. Less serious crimes often go unpunished. Malmö probably has the highest percentage of Muslim immigrants of any city in Scandinavia. The most Islamic city in Scandinavia also happens to be the most criminal and the most violent.


This poor Trans-Racial woman. Who would have thought that one mentally ill person out martyrs another mentally ill segment.

Rachel Dolezal, former African-American studies professor and NAACP branch president, thinks she faces more stigma against “racial fluidity” as a “transracial” person than transgender people do for gender fluidity.

In an interview with Salon for her new book on racial identity, Dolezal, who was outed as a white woman presenting as black in 2015, compared her racial identity to Caitlyn Jenner, who publicly came out as trans shortly before Dolezal’s bust.


Camille Paglia scorches the politically correct. No apology from her regarding trans activists.

Frank Zappa and Lithuania.

Frank Zappa never went to Lithuania and had absolutely no connection to the country. However, the youth of Lithuania had a connection to Zappa—he was the icon of their newfound freedoms. This is evidenced in the Frank Zappa memorial near Vilnius’ city center.

Wonder if there are Huskies and yellow snow there?


Moar Zappa? Sure why not?! Burt Ward's Boy Wonder.
