The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I think conservatives have to make a case-by-case choice — there are actually some Democrat candidates out there who functionally now are to the right on economics of their Republican counterpart. It’s astounding,” Rick Wilson

Dangerous guns being foisted the public.

There is liberal gun ignorance and then there is this. The Palm Beach Post is trying to raise the alarm over 3D printed guns but instead pushed the “lethality” of rubber band guns. I’m almost certain that other liberals who don’t know jack squat about firearms will be scared, but to the rest of us this is absolutely ridiculous. I mean I guess you could get an eye injury from taking a rubber band to the face, but the chances of death are nonexistent.

Cody Wilson is 1-0 in the legal arena involving 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights. Could he soon be 2-0?

Wilson replied to the email asking what the company's justification for terminating the account was and threatening legal action against them.

The ONT always looking out for you. In tonight's segment TERF

This article addresses transphobic ideas and may be triggering to some readers.

Scrolling through your social feeds in the recent years, you may have noticed a new acronym: TERF, or “trans-exclusionary radical feminist.” Originally coined in 2008, its popularity has mounted in tandem with both feminism and transgender acceptance and gained fringe traction via social media before rising into general use. Although TERF’s meaning is in its name, most people don’t know the specifics of what TERFs believe or want. You may only know that they are feminists who exclude trans people.


Social feeds? Where I come from that means the Volunteer Fire Department's Annual Chicken BBQ. I feel Woke when it comes with corn on the cob, coleslaw and a dinner roll with butter.

What are the odds of this man being a hero? Not sure but definitely Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

When an elderly man came to the rescue of a drowning boy earlier this week, his life-saving efforts revealed a surprising connection between the two of them.

80-year-old Xu Weifang had been resting in his Zhutang home when he heard someone crying for help from the river.

He and his wife rushed outside only to find an 8-year-old boy struggling to keep his head above the water. The youngster had been playing with his grandmother near the riverside when he accidentally fell in.
