Quotes of The Day


Quote I

The American flag is the most recognized symbol of freedom and democracy in the world. Virginia Foxx


Quote II

The flag represents all the values and the liberties Americans have and enjoy everyday. Bill Shuster


Quote III

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. H. L. Mencken

Hmmm wonder where I heard Quote III before.

California home of raisins and nuts. Take the test.

[ ] Does California want to be a sanctuary state for marijuana?
[ ] Does California want to offer health insurance for illegal aliens?
[ ] Does the California Assembly defy a Constitutional Amendment.
[ ] All of The Above.


Hint, this is an easy riddle. We have a fair number of California Morons here. Why do you stay? What keeps you there? Is there anything that would be the last straw? Inquiring minds want to know.

So we now know who wears the pants in that family. Cindy McCain to join DJT in draining the swamp?

Trump has reportedly been trying to convince McCain, the wife of Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, to join the Trump administration for several months. Trump and McCain have agreed on an ambassador position focused on anti human trafficking efforts, refugees, and humanitarian-aid issues. The title is not yet official but a White House source told Daily Beast Tuesday, that the title “U.S. ambassador-at-large for human rights,” is likel

Quite frankly I've had no use for McCain since the days of the Keating 5. Talk about swamps.

You can't make this shit up. Well, you could.

A global warming research study in Canada has been cancelled because of “unprecedented” thick summer ice.
Naturally, the scientist in charge has blamed it on ‘climate change.’

According to Vice:

The study, entitled BaySys, is a $17-million four-year-long program headed by the University of Manitoba. It was planning to conduct the third leg of its research by sending 40 scientists from five Canadian universities out into the Bay on the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen to study “contributions of climate change and regulation on the Hudson Bay system.”


Let me get this straight. If it melts, it's climate change? If it freezes, it's climate change? Like I said, you can't make this shit up.

Since we are looking at the global warming, global cooling, climate change, man is bad subject let us look at Elon Musk. No, not that kind of musk, but the Tesla musk.

Tesla, all talk and no manufacturing?If I were an investor, I would be seriously concerned.


But, if Tesla is truly the lean manufacturing powerhouse that it purports itself to be then we do wonder why it continues to burn through ~$600 million of cash every single quarter, or roughly $30,000 for every car that it sells?

Instead of celebrating employment. Instead of celebrating reliable electricity. Instead of just being positive the left is just Negative Nelly. Coal mine to employ fewer people than a grocery store.

The US’s first new coal mine in years, heralded by president Donald Trump as a fulfillment of campaign promises, will employ 70 people, according to Fox News. That’s significantly fewer than the 92 jobs created by the opening of one American supermarket on average (based on 2015 numbers from industry groups and and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics).

So F*CKING what?

And I bet a coal powered power plant will last longer than 23 years.

The oldest commercial wind power facility in Canada has been shut down and faces demolition after 23 years of transforming brisk southern Alberta breezes into electricity — and its owner says building a replacement depends on the next moves of the provincial NDP government.

TransAlta Corp. said Tuesday the blades on 57 turbines at its Cowley Ridge facility near Pincher Creek have already been halted and the towers are to be toppled and recycled for scrap metal this spring. The company inherited the now-obsolete facility, built between 1993 and 1994, as part of its $1.6-billion hostile takeover of Calgary-based Canadian Hydro Developers Inc. in 2009.

The ONT Musical Interlude


June 14, 1995, Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher died after a chest infection set in following a liver transplant. Had been a member of Taste before going solo, sold over 30m albums worldwide. Voted Melody Maker's Top Musician of the Year in 1972, auditioned for The Rolling Stones following the departure of Mick Taylor. Gallagher made his final performance on 10 January 1995 in the Netherlands. via thisdayinmusic.com

Ron Wood better than Rory? The ONT doesn't think so. And Moar Rory.

June 14, 1961, Patsy Cline was seriously injured in a car accident. During her two month hospital stay, her song "I Fall to Pieces" gave the singer her first Country No.1 and also became a huge country-pop crossover hit. via thisdayinmusic.com

Florida, home of the Carrot Chili and now expanded gun rights.


"If the State of Florida is going to accuse a citizen of committing a crime, the State of Florida should have the burden of proof at each and every part of the proceeding," Florida Senate President Joe Negron (R) said in a statement. "This legislation requires the state to meet the standard of clear and convincing evidence to overcome an immunity claim. I am grateful to Governor Scott for signing this huge step towards better protection of the constitutional freedoms guaranteed to all citizens."

Blue Lives Matter. The wife of a police officer stands up to loudmouth Democratic politician.

To State Representative Minnie Gonzalez:

I am the proud wife of a Hartford Police Officer and Air Force Veteran. The men and women of the Hartford Police Department are some of the finest people I know and have more integrity than you could ever wish to have. They serve their communities with pride, dedication, and distinction. These officers put their lives on the line every single day, for little pay, little recognition, and with very little support from elected politicians. These men and women go into their neighborhoods every day truly trying to make a difference, something you know nothing about........


A good read. Wonder if she is an 'Ette. If not I hearby offer her a complimentary platinum subscription.
