Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise. George Washington Carver

Quote II

Failure is success if we learn from it. Malcolm Forbes

Quote III

Upbeat is for people who want to feel good about their cause: the reformers, the progressives, the revolutionaries, the utopians, the collectivists, and the rest of the altruistic scum of the earth. Why do these people want to feel good? They want to feel good in order to convince themselves that they are good. P. J. O'Rourke

We all knew that Conservative were hawt (Right Mrs. Mis. Hum?) Now it's scientifically proved, just ask Paul Joseph Watson. NSFW

Well, this took some guts. Artist Joy Villa wears Pro-Life dress to Grammys.

Artist Joy Villa continued her tradition of donning a controversial dress to the Grammys Sunday night.

This year, Villa shined a spotlight on the anti-abortion movement with an all-white dress that had a hand-painted baby in a womb on the front. She also carried a white handbag that read “Choose Life.”

Villa shared details about her outfit on Instagram. She said the illustration was adapted from a painting Villa made in 2007 when she was expecting a child that she would eventually give up for adoption.”

Tonight's Email Humor

So someone broke the windows, stole the radio, shot out all four of the tires, added an Obama Bumper Sticker, and left a note that read: "Hope this helps!!!"

Quite frankly, he should have been thrown into a dumpster and disposed in some landfill. However the Manson family disagrees.

LOS ANGELES — The fight for the corpse of Charles Manson was thrown out of a Los Angeles court Friday, as another potential heir stepped into the case and the grandson of the cult leader made an emotional plea to a judge.

In a hearing to determine the venue for legal battles over Manson’s estate and the disposition of his remains, Jason Freeman, whose father was born by Manson’s first wife, echoed the frustration of several parties who have been trying to get control of the notorious criminal’s body since he died in November.

“My grandfather has been on ice over 60 days,” Freeman blurted in court as he choked up.

I'm sure that the pregnant Sharon Tate would sympathize.
