Quote I

That’s exactly why the left is so hysterical about the Supreme Court. They run to the courts to win their most unpopular policy ideas, gift-wrapped and handed to them as “constitutional rights.” Ann Coulter

Ann always interesting and usually controversial to some degree.


Quote II

“When I was a kid and used to come here, Chamula was isolated and didn’t have access to processed food. Now, you see the kids drinking Coke and not water. Right now, diabetes is hitting the adults, but it’s going to be the kids next. It’s going to overwhelm us.” Vicente Vaqueiros

For those of you who wear an occasional python boot. Here is your chance to wear alligator instead. But, you will have to travel to Florida and bag one.

Free Speech: 1 - Clock boy 0. The 1st Amendment alive and well, for another day.

It looks like time has run out for “Clock Boy,” the young Muslim American who was accused of bringing a hoax bomb to an Irving, Texas, high school back in September of 2015, when he was just 13. Clock Boy is the nickname conservatives gave freshman high school student Ahmed Mohamed after his stunt three years ago.

The young man was feted by the Left at the time and even invited to the White House by then-President Barack Obama. Both Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg expressed public support for Mohamed, folks like Stephen Colbert featured him on their shows, and CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) named Mohamed the American Muslim of the Year, as The Daily Wire noted.

Reason #13,658 why one should eat hamburgers at hamburger joints. Salads at McDonald's are making people sick.

Even under the best of circumstances, ordering salad at McDonald’s is a dicey endeavor. But now an outbreak of the foodborne parasite cyclospora has sickened over 100 people in Iowa and Illinois since May, and several cases are tied to salads purchased at the fast food giant.

The outbreaks were jointly reported Thursday by Iowa and Illinois health officials. In Illinois, about 90 cases have been seen since mid-May, with a quarter of victims reporting that they had eaten McDonald’s salads soon before they became sick. In Iowa, at least 15 people are thought to have eaten these salads just before developing a cyclospora infection, or cyclosporiasis, from late June to early July.

“Anyone who ate these salads since the middle of June and who developed diarrhea, especially watery diarrhea and fatigue, should see their health care provider and get tested for Cyclospora to ensure an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment,” Patricia Quinlisk of the Iowa Department of Public Health said in a statement.

Yummy.

There is a time and place for ski masks and flannel clothing. Miami, FL is not one of them. Genius Award Winner.

A man in a ski mask was arrested Saturday after trying to rob a Broward bank, according to FBI officials.

But 46-year-old David Licht didn’t cash out as planned. In fact, he didn’t make it further than the door.

Police say footage shows a flannel-wearing Licht trying to open the front doors of a Wells Fargo in Hollywood off Taft Street.— the temperatures were in the 90s.
