The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“When you are in this ecosystem as a tourist, as an explorer or as a scientist, you have the responsibility to follow the protocols to ensure that you stay safe and that you don’t interfere with the wild behavior of polar bears.” Jeff Corwin


Quote II

"They're trying to intimidate you anyway they can. That's politics, I guess. I was surprised it [the letter] was so petty," he said. "I think they're just trying to attack anyone who tries to stick their heads up…Because I spoke out and am a former union leader, they're going to come out after me." Retired St. Louis Police sergeant Gary Wiegert


Freedom of choice only includes killing babies and never who you want to associate with or have spend your money. Oops did I write that out loud?


Quote III

Freedom is never given; it is won. A. Philip Randolph


The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well. Did I mention it was criminal entrepreneurial spirit? Do not cross go, do not collect $200.00.

On August 3, 2001, a McDonald’s film crew arrived in the bustling beach town of Westerly, Rhode Island. They carried their cameras and a giant cashier’s check to a row of townhouses, and knocked on the door of Michael Hoover. The 56-year-old bachelor had called a McDonald’s hotline to say he’d won their Monopoly competition. Since 1987, McDonald’s customers had feverishly collected Monopoly game pieces attached to drink cups, french fry packets and advertising inserts in magazines. By completing groups of properties like Baltic and Mediterranean Avenues, players won cash or a Sega Game Gear, while “Instant Win” game pieces scored a free Filet-O-Fish or a Jamaican vacation. But Hoover, a casino pit boss who had recently filed for bankruptcy, claimed he’d won the grand prize–$1 million dollars.

Rescue dogs, rejoice!

A new calendar for 2019 titled “Dad Bods and Dogs Calendar” by photographer Ricki Beason is just the uplifting help our furry friends need. The calendar features guys with so-called “dad bods” posed alongside pooches from three different animal rescue organizations in the the Dallas, Texas area: The Love Pit, Rescue Row and Astasia’s Angels Animal Rescue.

The ONT always looking out for you. If you're concerned about what you eat, you may want to leave these items alone.

What is better, a guaranteed job or guaranteed basic income?

Maybe a review of basic economic history would answer this question.

Who is the most despicable American who has ever lived? One man says John Kerry.

The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.

Something tells me they have had this argument before. Only there won't be anymore arguments.

An Arkansas woman was arrested Saturday after telling police she shot and killed her husband because he bought pornography, officials said.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said in a news release it received a call around 2:30 p.m. from 69-year-old Patricia Hill, who told dispatchers she just shot her 65-year-old husband, Frank.

The ONT caters to a multitude of people and professions. In some professions it only takes a few to ruin the reputation of the entire profession. In this case, how fvcking stupid do you have to be to teach?

An art education professor at the University of North Texas is urging his fellow educators to use social justice-themed art classes to fight “geometries of whiteness.”

Tyson E. Lewis, who teaches classes on critical pedagogy and aesthetic theory, contributed a chapter on “Art Education and Whiteness as Style” for a new guide aimed at other educators, The Palgrave Handbook of Race and Arts in Education.

“Art education needs to draw upon critical whiteness studies to further its social justice agenda while at the same time recognizing the resources that art education brings to questions of whiteness,” Lewis writes in the preface of his chapter.
