The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“… It costs around $74,000 per year to attend Middlebury. For what? Why would anyone pay for their kid to study at a college that allows left-wing mobs a veto over whether or not scholars can speak on campus? Why would any student go into debt to pay for that kind of pseudo-education?” Rod Dreher


Quote II

The lights are going out on the most basic of journalistic instincts: Who, what, when, where, why. All are subordinate to the Narrative - or Official Lie. Mark Steyn


Quote III

“We have all sorts of issues to deal with in the state of Wisconsin and to pass a bill that is redundant seems to be not a productive use of time,”“And clearly I ran on the belief — and I still believe — that women should be able to make choices about their health care. But this deals with a specific issue that’s already been resolved,” Gov. Tony Evers (D-WI)


Quote IV

“So prayers aren’t needed. In fact prayers are proven beyond doubt to have no effect. What might help, however, is ending the Western campaign to convert people of other religions in exchange for charity,” Andy West


Quote V

"And let us not forget that in many respects, from property taxes to sales taxes, undocumented immigrants are taxpayers, and the truth is, in many respects, because they are not eligible for a lot of benefits, they are subsidizing the rest of us. Which is just one more reason we've got to get this sorted out." Mayor Pete Buttigieg, South Bend, IN


Quote VI

With conspiracy and collusion off the table, and Mueller saying the case for obstruction is unproven, the renewed attack on Trump takes on the aspect of a naked and desperate “deep state”-media coup against a president they fear they cannot defeat at the ballot box. Patrick J. Buchanan

No word if that super-duper conservative pundit Rick Wilson supports this type of behavior from Qatar. That little congress critter from MN should be asked about this as well.

A LEADING academic and cleric from World Cup host country Qatar has filmed a shocking guide on how Muslim men should beat their wives.

The vile video features Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj demonstrating how to "punish" a woman in accordance with Islamic law.

Meter-maids have to be careful in the enforcement of their duties. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit has found that chalking tires is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

The next time parking enforcement officers use chalk to mark your tires, they might be acting unconstitutionally.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that "chalking" is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.

The case was brought by Alison Taylor, a Michigan woman whom the court describes as a "frequent recipient of parking tickets." The city of Saginaw, Mich., like countless other cities around the country, uses chalk to mark the tires of cars to enforce time limits on parking.

A conversation between jetBlue and a customer of theirs.

"Your Face is Your Boarding Pass" is the headline from a jetBlue press release from November 15, 2018. "JetBlue continues to lead the industry as the first domestic airline to launch a fully-integrated biometric self-boarding gate for international flights..."

Journalist MacKenzie Fegan had first-hand (first-face?) experience with the new procedure, and when she asked jetBlue about it on Twitter, the extraordinary correspondence resulted:

Marijuana possession/use and firearm ownership is on shaky ground. U.S. Rep. Alexander Mooney (R-WV) has introduced legislation which would allow gun ownership and legal marijuana use.

The legalization of marijuana is an interesting issue right now. Federally, it’s considered an illegal drug, something you aren’t supposed to get even with a prescription. The reality is a bit murkier. Many states have legalized it for medical use, and some have gone so far as to approve it for recreational use.

However, gun owners have been caught in a tough spot in this whole thing. You see, some states have required licensed gun owners to give up their guns due to their status as medical marijuana users.

Legally, they can do this. After all, federal law prohibits people who use federally prohibited drugs from owning guns. Mind you, these states have no issue ignoring the federal law that prohibits them in the first place, but these states also dislike guns. As a result, gun owners get nasty letters telling them to cough up their firearms.

Now, a Republican lawmaker has introduced a bill that seeks to prevent that from happening in the future.

The State of Washington is one step away from legalizing human composting.

On Friday, Washington’s state senators and congresspeople finalized their approval of bill 5001 — an item of legislation that would legalize human composting.

The bill will now head to the desk of the state’s governor, Jay Inslee. If he signs it, the legislation will go into effect in 2020, making Washington residents the first in the nation to have this economical, environmentally-friendly option for disposing of their bodies after death.

Is The ONT too critical when it says, You're fat. You're unattractive. You're nuts and you're not a very nice person to boot?
