Quote I

“The easiness with which we get a semiautomatic Glock, which goes beep, beep, beep, beep, beep. It doesn’t take any intelligence or skill or talent to use one of these guns to just kill people in their face, and they’re doing it now with some rapidity in this country.” Chris Matthews


Quote II

“Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism: nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By pursuing our own interests first, with no regard to others’, we erase the very thing that a nation holds most precious, that which gives it life and makes it great: its moral values.” Emmanuel Macron


Quote III

“Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.” Thomas Jefferson


Quote IV

Getting back to skin in the game, sometimes I wonder whether one should be allowed in the game if he doesn’t have any skin in it.Professor Walter E. Williams


Quote V

“U didn’t stop ISIS. you sent James Taylor. Plug your knothole, Captain Driftwood,” Greg Gutfeld

George Bush's Chief Justice let us down. What would have happened to Obamacare had Sen. John McCain voted the way he campaigned? Unseated Congressman Jason Lewis (R-MN) has some ideas on the subject.

“McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a ‘green wave’ of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan ‘gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.’ ” Lewis wrote.

“That line of attack was the Democrats’ most potent attack in the midterms. It was endlessly repeated by overt partisans in the media,”


Remember the Maverick Jack Ass?

Guilty until proven innocent in the court of academia. Just days before graduation, male student is booted from the University of Chicago.

A former student who was expelled for sexual misconduct just four days before graduating is suing the University of Chicago for allegedly violating his due process rights.

He has also sued his accuser—his ex-girlfriend—which is a rare step for those seeking justice in such cases. Most lawsuits born of shoddy campus sexual misconduct adjudication solely target the institution

Creepy Porn Lawyer really has a hard on for Tucker Carlson.

Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is at it again. The one-time defender of Stormy Daniels and liar Julie Swetnick revealed to the world that he is currently investigating Fox News personality Tucker Carlson for an alleged assault against a gay latino immigrant at a country club in Virginia. Avenatti even released a video of the alleged assault which proves…not much actually.

Tucker Carlson responded with his own statement about exactly what the incident that was recorded involved…and it had nothing to do with Tucker assaulting anyone.

In little old Wisconsin the recent mid-term elections saw 1.4 Billion Dollars in school referendums on the ballots. That's billion with a B. Nearly all of them passed. Instead of raising their taxes these voters should do something about the teachers in their midst.

"Educators" aren't educating.

(Natural News) The group behind the ACT college entrance examination is reporting that test scores for the Class of 2018 have reached their lowest levels in decades, suggesting that the leftist-contaminated public education system is now in total free fall mode.

According to The Condition of College and Career Readiness 2018, the ACT group’s annual report, this year’s graduating class performed especially poorly in math, though scores were admittedly dismal in the other categories as well. All in all, American students appear to have been dumbed down to their lowest level yet – and this could just be the beginning.

I'm not a scientist nor do I play one on TV or on The ONT. But.......What the hell were these people thinking?

A chemical that bills itself as a well cleaner, but hasn’t been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency to treat drinking water, has reportedly been used for that purpose for 10 years in Denmark, South Carolina, CNN reported Sunday.

Citing a yearlong investigation and an FOIA request, CNN’s report raised concerns over whether the chemical that was used to treat naturally occurring iron bacteria in one of Denmark’s four wells may be unsuitable for long-term ingestion. Some residents of Denmark have reportedly turned to spring or bottled water to avoid having to drink the water, which they believe is making them ill.


Can you or I break the law every day, day in and day out for 10 years straight? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Matt Yglesias meet Karma. Karma meet Matt "The human slug" Yglesias.

fore he did, however, at least one Twitter user responded by posting Yglesias’ own home address in a reply thread. The implied threat was clear: Yglesias had failed to denounce the harassment by left-wingers of a conservative media personality at his home, so now he and his family deserved the same treatment.

That Yglesias would get doxed was perhaps predictable, even though it’s a direct violation of Twitter’s policies. (It shouldn’t matter whether Yglesias’ address is potentially findable elsewhere online; posting it on Twitter contravenes the platform’s stated rules, and the context makes it clear that the intent is to intimidate him.) What’s galling—and, by now, familiar—is Twitter’s response.

While doxxing is never cool, it’s not difficult to see how this happened.

A North Carolina man Will have a very Thankful Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks.

A North Carolina man has survived a black bear attack outside his home by punching the animal in the nose.

Sonny Pumphrey had a lucky escape on Tuesday afternoon when he went out to his driveway and discovered three bears in his yard.

It appeared to be a mother and two cubs. But while the cubs ran off, the mom remained.

Installing book shelves? If Ace can't help you, eBay can.

eBay has partnered with three companies to allow customers to book home installation or assembly services for items like televisions, furniture, bikes, and other things that need to be put together, right from the product page.

Various product pages for applicable items now list an option for customers to select assembly and installation services from one of three companies: Handy, InstallerNet, and Porch. The feature allows them to add the services to the purchase, much like you would add on a protection plan. Once you’ve completed your purchase of your item and the services, the applicable company will get in touch to set up an appointment.

Bicyclists proven by data are faster than cars and motorbikes in cities. No word how many traffic laws they broke along the way or how often they were flipped off.

Smartphone data from riders and drivers schlepping meals for restaurant-to-home courier service Deliveroo shows that bicycles are faster than cars. In towns and cities, bicyclists are also often faster than motorized two-wheelers. Deliveroo works with 30,000 riders and drivers in 13 countries.

That bicyclists are faster in cities will come as no surprise to bicycle advocates who have staged so-called “commuter races” for many years. However, these races – organized to highlight the swiftness of urban cycling – are usually staged in locations and at hours skewed towards bicycle riders. The Deliveroo stats are significant because they have been extracted from millions of actu

Well, that sex date didn't work out too well. Genius Award Winner.

A Ponte Vedra resident was restrained and robbed during a home invasion that originated as a Tinder date, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said.

The victim had arranged for a female to come to his house, but a male subject appeared and pointed a gun at him and began taking items, deputies said.

The victim was tied up with bed sheets, pushed under a bed and gagged with a shirt so he couldn't scream for help, deputies said. He was forced to give up his bank account information, the report said

Who says old white guys don't have rhythm? Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

At 94, Frank Walsh had a crazy dream to play with a high school band. But he had no musical background.

Chad Davies, band director at Wilsonville High School in Oregon, heard about the idea from the administrator at Walsh's assisted living center, about five minutes away from the school.

When Davies asked his young musicians what they thought about Walsh joining the band, they were thrilled
