The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"[She's] so bitter, you could make an Old-Fashioned out of her tears," Greg Gutfeld


Quote II

In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” Anthony Malcolm Daniels (Theodore Dalrymple)


Quote III

“Wherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face there will be a well-heeled Western liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100 percent literacy." John Derbyshire

There is no truth that Hillary Clinton or John Podesta ever worked for a power company. U.S. power company fined $2.7 million for security flaws.

An American power company has reached a settlement to pay an unprecedented $2.7 million penalty over significant security oversights that could have allowed hackers to gain remote access to the power provider’s systems.

According to an electronic filing, power regulators reached a settlement with an unidentified power company after a security researcher discovered more than 30,000 company records online unprotected by even a password. Regulators did not disclose the name of the company, which neither admitted nor denied the violations.

First his soul is burning in hell. Now his corpse is going to burn.

I wouldn't feed Charles Manson's corpse to my dog, let alone fight over it. Not everyone's of the same mind: after a whole lotta legal jibba-jabba, the courts have finally decided on who gets possession of his remains. According to Jezebel, Manson's grandson, Jason Freeman, has won the dead cult-leader lottery, having been awarded the right to take possession of his murderous progenitor's remains:

Manson died on November 19th after more than 40 years behind bars, but in all that time it was never agreed upon who would win the rights to his corpse once he finally kicked the bucket. If you thought he’d be quietly cremated and deposited in a dumpster behind a seafood restaurant like he probably deserved, well, you were wrong. It turns out an entire gaggle of people were after the cult leader’s ice-packed remains, including Freeman, longtime pen pal Michael Channels, a musician named Matt Lentz who claims to be his son, and another dude named Michael Brunner who also claims to be his son.

They aren't in the lead for Parents of The Year Award. But they are for Genius Award Winners.


CRESTVIEW — Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office found a man and woman passed out in a truck at a gas pump in Crestview Monday night, while a 3-year-old child had syringes, methamphetamine, and oxycodone within easy reach.

According to a press release from OCSO, a member of the OCSO Street Crimes Unit was on patrol in the Crestview area when they spotted a white pickup truck with Mississippi tags that had been the subject of an earlier “Attempt to Identify” bulletin in reference to a theft around 10:30 p.m.

Some parents have done a good job. A 6 year old is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

An Indiana boy who raised nearly $7,000 for fallen Deputy Jacob Pickett’s family was captured in a touching photo saluting the officer’s memorial on Sunday.

Malachi Fronczak, 6, of Kokomo, spent Friday and Saturday selling hot cocoa and lemonade to help the family of Pickett, who was shot and killed in early March while attempting to apprehend a suspect. Pickett was the first officer killed in the line of duty from the Boone County Sheriff's Office since 1935.
