The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost the future. Winston Churchill


Quote II

When you forgive, you in no way change the past - but you sure do change the future. Bernard Meltzer


Quote III

Seek that which within lies waiting to begin the fight of your life that is everyday. Ian Anderson

Tucker Carlson interviews Tommy Robinson. Good stuff.

Riding sharing. Wasn't the idea to speed up transport? Not according to Timothy Hochstedler.

Although ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft initially gained popularity in larger metropolises, now passengers can hail a ride with a click of a button in most cities and suburbs across the country. Unfortunately, though, ride-sharing is still not typically an option when it comes to small towns and rural areas.

Politicians and their plans. They all sound good rattling around in their empty skulls until they are implemented.

Two Congressional Republicans on Thursday introduced a proposal to implement federal paid leave for new parents.

The proposal, to be introduced as the "Economic Security for New Parents Act," is the work of Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Ann Wagner (R., Mo.). It would work by allowing parents to draw on Social Security, taking funds from their future entitlement to pay for some number of weeks off, and in return retiring the same number of weeks later than they would have otherwise.

Future entitlement?

It appears that someone has a terminal chip on their shoulder. Skinny eyebrows are culturally inappropriate.

I understand that skinny brows were not created or exclusively owned by the Latinx community: They also have roots in South African culture, in Roaring Twenties fashion, in the Harlem Renaissance community, and I’m sure they can be found in many other subsections of the world, too.

But to me and thousands of other Mexican and Mexican-American girls looking at these photos, RiRi’s brows look a lot like the chola brows our mothers feared we would one day wear—the brows that are now untouchable and unwearable to women like me, especially in conjunction with hoop earrings and, god forbid, lip liner.


Funny if you can read and write English.

Our society going to hell in a hand-basket.

This isn't "culture war." Culture has nothing to do with it. It's war on normality by Brownshirts, incited or paid for by the likes of George Soros and Tom Steyer. It has now graduated from street-fighting to trying to take down the U.S. government.

I will never understand these people's hatred of America. They are unreachable by reason. It seems clear that they are trying to provoke a heavy, violent reaction from us so they can then haul out the artillery. They missed their big chance with Barama in the saddle but had been biding their time right along. They'll just continue that until their next big chance. They need to be able to declare martial law.

Be ready.
