The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

As I watch Obama, I am reminded of how depressed I got under Obama's eight long years, and how I cannot bear to hear this Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure's droning voice.
And I remember, too, the NeverTrumper motherfuckers who conspired to give us Obama's Third Term, starring the corrupt Hillary Clinton, and called us crazy and racist for daring to say, "I object to that scheme." I will never forgive them, and I will never stop reminding everyone that they preferred Obama over a Republican (Trump) Ace of Spades


Quote II

“Well, I have to say, my regard for the press has dropped quite dramatically,” Elon Musk

Quote III

"Fascism is ascendant. The world is on fire. This is no time to be patient. If we donít abolish capitalism, capitalism will abolish us.Mark Bray, Dartmouth Prof


Quote IV

"They are blessing actions that are against the laws of God. That would be like priests standing outside the gas chambers at Auschwitz and blessing the murder of innocent Jews. Such evil."Rev. Franklin Graham

Not only is the media guilty of being "Fake News". They are also guilty of being better than you.

A disabled Air Force veteran says an MSNBC news crew blocked his way into a polling site in Houston when it parked in a handicapped parking spot.

"Went to vote, and found this waiting for us," James Berrie, who has multiple sclerosis, wrote on Facebook. "The only van accessible spot and they’re filming in it. We asked them to move, pointed out how it was wrong, then went to vote, because it takes time to load up. But came out and still there. Not even packing up, still getting ready for their shot."

The following falls under the category of: No shit Sherlock.

Of course women mothers earn less money than men.

Even in a unionized environment, where work tasks are similar, hourly wages are identical, and tenure dictates promotions, female workers earn $0.89 on the male-worker dollar (weekly earnings). We use confidential administrative data on bus and train operators from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to show that the weekly earnings gap can be explained entirely by the workplace choices that women and men make.


Insert obligatory sammich reference...........

A momentary glimpse of sanity in California? Pension board reform.

What’s this? An actual expression of common sense in California? Yes, it has actually happened.

CalPERS, the public employee retirement system in California, has one of the largest investment portfolios in the world (0ver $350 billion), though it is still not large enough to fulfill its pension obligations. Naturally being a political plaything, several years ago CalPERS board decided that it should use its investment clout on behalf of “social investing,” which of course means in plain speaking “lower return investing.” By its own estimate, CalPERS decision to exit tobacco stocks back in the late 1990s reduced portfolio returns by $3 billion from 2001 to 2014.
