Quotes of The Day

Quote I

You send your kids off to college. They love you. You walk away with a Cornell mom T-shirt. You are walking away going this is great, and come Thanksgiving, your kid tells you that you are an imperialist and a racist and a homophobe. That is not worth $120,000. Andrew Breitbart


Quote II

From my standpoint, I see the long Republican realignment ending and going into a period of Democratic supremacy. I think there will be a lot of mistakes and a lot of bad things done. But I do believe the American people are really up to making the best of their politicians ... When I am given a chance to address college students, I always tell them, 'Always love your country but never trust your government.' I believe that. Robert Novak - 2007

Quote III

We’re told cars are dangerous. It’s safer to drive through South Central Los Angeles than to walk there. We’re told cars are wasteful. Wasteful of what? Oil did a lot of good sitting in the ground for millions of years. We’re told cars should be replaced with mass transportation. But it’s hard to reach the drive-through window at McDonald’s from a speeding train. And we’re told cars cause pollution. A hundred years ago city streets were ankle deep in horse excrement. What kind of pollution do you want? Would you rather die of cancer at eighty or typhoid fever at nine? P.J. O'Rourke

Well Iím not dumb but I canít understand. Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man

A New Zealand weightlifter, who previously competed in the sport as a man, has won the women's over 90 kilogram division at the World Masters Games in Aukland.

*****

Are you a racist? Watch the video and take the exam?


When does the "thumbs up" signal become "triggering"?


*****

Is there hope for the current administration? 'Climate Change' information deleted from EPA website.

Tax Cuts.

It's your money after all, It's your money, not Uncle Sam's.

Most discussions of tax policy overlook a crucial initial condition: the ownership of the money before the government confiscates it. That is a moral consideration, or at least it ought to be. Pundits go on at great length debating whether the government can afford to let people keep a bit more of their own money. Very few ever ask whether the taxpayer can afford the high cost of government.

Do you remember Jazz Hands? Clapping = Bad, Jazz Hands = Good. Well the Special Snowflakes have taken it to the next level. Whooping and cheering are now bad.

Students who whoop, cheer and clap should face “consequences” because they are excluding deaf people, delegates at the National Union of Students conference said.

Audience members were repeatedly warned that they must cease whooping to express support for a speaker, because it has a “serious impact” on the accessibility of the conference.

I believe I will Jazz Hand them with 2 middle fingers. Wonder if they understand that?

The ONT Musical Interlude

May 2, 1936, Born on this day, Engelbert Humperdinck, (1967 UK No.1 and US No. 4 single 'Release Me', plus 12 other UK Top 40 hits). via thisdayinmusic.com


May 2, 2005, Eric Clapton joined former Cream members drummer Ginger Baker and bass player Jack Bruce for the first of four nights at London's Royal Albert Hall 36 years after they had split up. Tickets were changing hands for more than £500 on eBay and fans had flown over from the USA to witness the reunion, which Clapton aged 60, is said to have agreed to because of the failing health of the other former members of the band. via thisdayinmusic.com

Always dispose of your fishing line properly. Amazing rescue of an owl.

Every action, equal reaction, yadda, yadda, yah. Sympathy Meter is broken, so is the Give A F*ck Meter.

Devin Jeran, an employee at Z Pizza in Seattle, was stoked to get a raise, from $11 to $15 an hour as part of a new law that takes effect today.

He was happy to get a raise, when Seattle’s minimum wage went up to $11 an hour at the beginning of the month.

Since we are discussing food, sort of, c'mon and play along. Your humble Cob enjoyed hot lunch while he was in school. After Michelle Obama finished up with her dictatorial food regime I wouldn't have. Neither did school age children.

Well, that is all coming to an end. Good-bye shit on a shingle. Adios excrement on a gluten filled starch product.

The Trump administration delivered a huge blow to former first lady Michelle Obama’s signature “healthy eating” school lunch initiative on May 1 with changes to federal nutrition standards.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said his department would delay the Obama-era “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act” requirements on lowering the amount of sodium in meals and increasing the amount of whole grains, according to The Associated Press.

The buck stops here. No modern Slimy Weasel Democrat would have the guts to do what President Harry S. Truman did. US first nation to recognize the country of Israel.

The Jewish State’s existence would have been very short-lived were it not for the strong will of President Harry S Truman, who became the first world leader to recognize Israel, and he did so over the objections of his Secretary of State George Marshall, who was more popular with the American people than Truman.

Damned if you do. Damned if you don't. Widespread vitamin D deficiency likely due to sunscreen use, increase of chronic diseases

Results from a clinical review published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association find nearly 1 billion people worldwide may have deficient or insufficient levels of vitamin D due to chronic disease and inadequate sun exposure related to sunscreen use.

The study also found that 95 percent of African American adults may have vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency. Vitamin D variations among races are attributed to differences in skin pigmentation.

*****


Drunken shopping. Silly purchases when one has been drinking.

I'm somewhat curious about #6, what was the funny purchase, the tattoos on one's head or a pillow of Nicholas Cage?

*****


Step-Mom misunderstands the term "smoking hot" so she is tonight's Genius Award Winner.

Quick thinking leads us to Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.
