The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"There are only two ways of telling the complete truth—anonymously and posthumously."—Thomas Sowell


Quote II

There is nothing Big Government loves more than failure. That’s why it is rewarded so lavishly with ever more public money.Dave Blount


Quote III

"I welcome debate in Congress based on merits of policy, but it's unacceptable and deeply offensive to call into question the loyalty of fellow Americana citizens because of their political views, including support for the U.S.-Israel relationship," "We all take the same oath. Worse. Representative Omar's comments leveled that charge by invoking a vile anti-Semitic slurRep. Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.)


Quote IV

“This sounds naïve, but I quite frankly feel they know better. And at certain points of moral clarity, I could see them coming back to the faith of their fathers"Charlie 3-Wives Sykes


Quote V

“Whoops, AOC is a gas-guzzler. If only she realized that the CO2 she is emitting was helping plants grow healthier and increasing crop yields on farms around NYC. Then she could be sane.

It seems many people agree that AOC is a bit too big for her britches. I’m in good company here.

POTUS is right to encourage her to keep blathering insanity. There can’t be 5% who support giving up planes, hamburgers, gasoline, and reliable electricity.” Patrick Moore

Someone needs to take a refresher course, Phrasing 101. "For the six weeks that young man was here, he impacted so many people's lives in such a positive way. It's a shame," Phipps said.

It's always interesting to learn about people, their professions and where they head on vacation. Some vets enjoy heading to Alaska in the middle of winter.

Amid the hundreds of barking and yipping sled dogs that lined the streets of downtown Anchorage Saturday morning, a small army of volunteer veterinarians was busy at work, bouncing from mushing trailer to mushing trailer, verifying the dogs’ microchips and tending to any dog fights and last-minute medical needs.

“Believe it or not, for a lot of veterinarians this is a vacation, because it’s just so different from their normal routine," said Chief Veterinarian Stu Nelson.

Some of them had a more specific job: collecting dog urine.

These volunteers, whom veterinary technician Joelle Riley affectionately called the “pee catchers,” are tasked with enforcing the Iditarod’s rigorous drug testing standards.

“They can go up to any musher, at any point, any dog and they say, ‘We need pee right now,” Riley said

Senator Kamala (Not The Ugandan Head-Hunter) Harris (D-CA) has one helluva memory problem.

Kamala Harris, who’s running for president on a vehement #MeToo platform as a Democrat, sure has a lot of memory problems.

It’s not just the $400,000 the state had to shell out based on the disgusting sex harassment behavior of her top lieutenant, Larry Wallace, her handpicked director for the division of law enforcement at the state attorney general’s office, which is quite a whopper in itself. It’s the $700,000 in more California taxpayer payout money for the sex-harassing activities of her other lieutenants. The Los Angeles Times reports that it did a search of public records and found that the total payout tally was $1.1 million

Why vote Republican when you can have a real Democrat? Hello Stupid Party Senators, how in the f*ck do you think you became a majority? Hello Stupid Party Congresscritters, how in the f*ck do you think you became a minority?

Congress will send President Trump a resolution revoking his national emergency declaration, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell predicted Monday, although Congress won’t have the votes to override Trump’s veto.

McConnell, R-Ky., said during a press conference in Louisville on Monday that the House-passed resolution has enough GOP support to clear the Senate and end up on Trump’s desk.

“What’s clear in the Senate is there will be enough votes to pass the resolution of disapproval,” McConnell said.

At least four GOP lawmakers plan to vote for the resolution, which would provide the simple majority needed to pass it.

I hope every single one of you f*cking worthless pieces of sh!t lose the next time you're on the ballot.

No word if Bill Kristol and Charlie 3-Wives Sykes were in the walk.

A group of white men on Sunday donned ‘MAGA’ hats and allowed “men and women of color and members of the LGBT community” to walk them along Hollywood Boulevard like dogs, according to a press release.

In addition to the red caps, the dozen or so dehumanized participants wore dog tags featuring the names of “racist” white men, including former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke and President Donald Trump. The stunt was the work of Indecline, a left-wing artist collective and activist group.

It's not easy being a sports official. It is even harder when the fat F*ck who use to coach the Green Bay Packers is chasing waddling after you. Genius Award Winner.

Three referees in Wisconsin have filed a formal complaint against former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy after he was involved in an incident during his stepson's high school basketball game Tuesday.

Video appears to show McCarthy follow the referees as they made their way out of the gym after the game, a one-point loss by Notre Dame Academy, for which McCarthy's stepson plays, to Pulaski High School. District officials confirmed to Fox 11 in Green Bay that the man in the video was McCarthy and said he directed "unsportsmanlike language" at the referees.

"This parent chose to follow the officials and berate them, which is clearly unacceptable," Janel Batten, Pulaski's athletic director, told Fox 11. "Some things were said, some language was used that we don't want in our gym, unsportsmanlike language."

Competitors to the rescue. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Jennifer Powell and her husband Seth Marko own The Book Catapult in San Diego, California.

Last month, Marko had emergency open heart surgery and spent 11 days in the hospital. As Marko recovered and Powell cared for him and their 3-year-old daughter, The Book Catapult was forced to close, as the store's only employee had the swine flu at the time.
