The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“What we do to other animals informs how we treat one another on this planet, and it is always — always — someone who doesn’t have institutional power, and they’re usually brown,” Christopher-Sebastian McJetters


Quote II

We should seek by all means in our power to avoid war, by analysing possible causes, by trying to remove them, by discussion in a spirit of collaboration and good will. Neville Chamberlain


Quote III

The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.George Washington

California, illegal immigrants are cool. Coffee not so much. I would rather take my chances drinking coffee.

You may have heard that coffee gives you cancer. Or that everything gives you cancer—if you live in California.

The reason: Proposition 65. It’s a California state law that requires businesses with 10 or more employees to provide reasonable warning about the use of any chemicals the state has decided could cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. One of these chemicals is acrylamide, which a rodent study pinned as a possible carcinogen. It’s found in almost everything that’s cooked at a high temperature. And because a particularly litigious law firm recently sued the state for not properly warning residents about acrylamide in coffee, California is now on the verge of requiring all coffee shops and manufacturers to include a warning on the beverage that it may cause cancer.


Ask Kathryn Steinle about the risks of coffee or illegal immigration.

Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber. "I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces.

"The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.

It's an experimental procedure, very risky, but it is the only hope.

Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the BRAIN.

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a time, someone asked, "How much will a brain cost?"

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a Liberal's brain; $200 for a Conservative's brain."

The moment turned awkward. Some of the Libs actually had to try not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the Deplorables.

A man unable to control his curiosity, finally blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the Liberal's brain so much more than a Conservative's brain?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire group, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to price the Conservative brains a lot lower because they're used."

An old joke, but truth is stranger than fiction

Human head-body transplant is expected in 2018. Sergio Canavero and Chinese surgeon Ren Xiaoping are expected to announce a date for body transplant in 2018.

Canavero says head-body transplants are the next step for transplants. People have now been living for years with donated hearts, lungs, livers, kidneys, and other internal organs.

What do you get when you allow Piers Morgan to Tweet about the U.S.A. and guns? A beating, similar to one of a rented mule or redheaded stepchild.

“THANK YOU! Where would Britain be without you & your massive GUNS?!” Morgan rhetorically asked a person identified as “Paradise Stang” who had engaged with him on Morgan’s adamant, anti-second amendment opinions.

“Speaking German” Shapiro responded. And it was on.

A legal showdown in Illinois. Will it reach The SCOTUS? Or will law enforcement actually go door to door confiscating those scary black guns?

Gun rights groups filed two separate lawsuits against an Illinois town this week after it enacted an ordinance banning certain firearms and ammunition magazines.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) announced on Wednesday it would be supporting a lawsuit against the Deerfield, Ill., gun ban brought by an Illinois-based gun rights group named Guns Save Life. The groups said the town's wide-ranging ban, which effects nearly all semi-automatic rifles as well as a large number of handguns and shotguns within city limits and carries a fine of up to $1,000 a day for those who don't remove, destroy, or turn over their affected guns, violates the constitutional rights of its members.

"We are going to fight this ordinance, which clearly violates our members' constitutional rights, and with the help of the NRA I believe we can secure a victory for law-abiding gun owners in and around Deerfield," John Boch, executive director of Guns Save Life, said in a statement.


Lately the SCOTUS has been punting on gun issues. Do you think the senate mid-term elections are important? The GOP senate deserves credit for Gorsuch's confirmation and keeping Garland off the bench.

Of course this wasn't the hill to fight for let alone die on. Your tax dollars and PP.

Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives hundreds of millions of federal dollars every year, has teamed up with MTV on a website called It's Your (Sex) Life, where they claim to offer comprehensive information on sex to teens. Considering Planned Parenthood's record of giving terrible and dangerous advice to minors, I tested it out by posing as a 15-year-old girl on their "chat with an expert page," asking if anal sex is safe.

This is the conversation I had with Planned Parenthood........

Victor Davis Hanson has a brand new 2018 Schadenfreude.

Then Williamson weighed in with his first pablum column in the Atlantic Libertarians Are Politically Homeless in the Trump Era – The Atlantic and slagged off his collegue Hanson thusly:

Last week, my former National Review colleague Victor Davis Hanson published an essay calling for a stronger regulatory hand over high-tech companies, fondly recalling the “cultural revolution of muckraking and trust-busting” of the 19th century, and ending with a plea for “some sort of bipartisan national commission that might dispassionately and in disinterested fashion offer guidelines to legislators” about more tightly regulating these companies, perhaps on the public-utility model. That from a magazine whose founders once dreamed of overturning the New Deal.

Why you as an independent, libertarian or conservative should just roll over and play dead.

The next time you call for bipartisan cooperation in America and long for Republicans and Democrats to work side by side, stop it. Remember the great lesson of California, the harbinger of America’s political future, and realize that today such bipartisan cooperation simply can’t get done.

In this current period of American politics, at this juncture in our history, there’s no way that a bipartisan path provides the way forward. The way forward is on the path California blazed about 15 years ago.

Compromise and cooperation is a two way street. The most recent evidence of that was the Trump DACCA overture. Look what it got PDT and the Dreamers.

Itchy penis? This is not the way to scratch it. Genius Award Winner.

He decided to insert a three-foot long cable into his penis to relieve the itchiness
The cable got tangled in the bladder and the pensioner could not take it out
Doctors cut the knot using lasers and pulled the cable out of the man's body

(35) For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. (36) I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A church in Texas raised money for a debt forgiveness charity and ultimately eliminated over $10 million in medical debt for over 4,000 veterans and families.

Covenant Church, under the leadership of Pastor Stephen Hayes, donated $100,000 to RIP Medical Debt, according to Fox News. The nonprofit is a former debt collection agency that is now a debt forgiveness charity.

Every dollar donated to the organization translates to $100 of debt they are able to cancel on someone else’s behalf.
