The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

For the past 40 years, the Palestinian leadership has missed opportunities again and again, and rejected all the offers it was given. It’s about time that the Palestinians accept the offers, and agree to come to the negotiating table — or they should shut up and stop complaining." Prince Salman


Quote II

"I don't find his impression to be comical. Because, like I said, I know the way his politics lean and it spoils any surprise. There's no possible surprise. He so clearly hates the man he's playing."Rob Schneider


Quote III

"You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." - Robert Heinlein


Quote IV

'Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election.

'I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.' Michael Caputo

How long before the Pussy Scouts are thing gone by?

(Reuters) - The Boy Scouts of America will drop “boy” from the name of its signature program for older youths as it seeks to widen its appeal to girls, the 108-year-old organization said on Wednesday.

Enrollment dropped when they allowed homosexuals. Numbers will continue to plummet IMHO.

Lawyers for Khalid Sheik Mohammed, 53, who revealed the terror suspect's brain damage in a memo to be raised at pretrial hearings this week, are seeking more sophisticated studies.

Nanny state? Or a proper rule? Every brand new car in the US is now required to have backup cameras.

All newly manufactured vehicles to be sold in the U.S. are required as of Tuesday to have backup cameras equipped as a standard feature.

Advocates for the rule, which was mandated by the National Highway Transportation Safety Agency in 2014, hope today’s milestone will lead to fewer instances of drivers backing into people due to a lack of visibility.

“This day is so important because we don’t have a choice” when it comes to children’s safety around cars, said Janette Fennell, founder and president of KidsAndCars.org, an advocacy group that works to prevent accidents involving children and motor vehicles. “This measure will save countless lives, especially of children.”


I think the free market would have solved the need.

Could a spatula become the next weapon of union goons? It could at this fast food restaurant.

BVWU, which is part of the international union group the Industrial Workers of the World, hopes to negotiate a raise of $5 an hour for hourly employees, consistent scheduling, child care and affordable healthcare.

They'll back me up on this one: According to the Associated Press, the citizens of Parrish were forced to endure the stench pouring off a train full of sewer sludge from New York and New Jersey for close to two months.
