The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing. CS Lewis


Quote II

The LeftLibProgs are not clueless about their economics. They know exactly what Iron Lung Economics do to societies. They wreck them all, every single one, while funneling all wealth to the members of “The Party.” You know, the ones driving their limos in their special lane in the middle of the road; the ones on the private plane far, far overhead that never experience the proctological moment at the airport’s security checkpoint. Gerard Van der Leun


Quote III

Just because there is a problem doesn't mean that we have to solve it, if the cure is going to be more expensive than the original ailment. Bjorn Lomborg

RIP American Hero.

Government schools despise Christians and Christianity. The Islamic faith not so much. Seattle School Indoctrination District wants to give Muslims special treatment.

A school district in Seattle has sent out a letter asking teachers to bless its Muslim students in Arabic during the month of Ramadan and give them preferential treatment, such as obtaining dispensations for classes and exams, reports Fox News.

Vocal Pro-Abortionist vs. Secretive Abortionist. Things are heating up in Democratic politics in Alabama.

Sen. Doug Jones (D., Ala.) has just received a primary challenge from Alabama State Representative John Rogers (D., Birmingham), who announced his candidacy during a floor speech on Tuesday.

Rogers, a strident opponent of Alabama's recent pro-life legislation, warned his audience that a new bill protecting unborn children would mean "coat hanger," and "back-alley" abortions, according to live tweets of the speech. Rogers also said that he had raised $500,000 for his challenge to Jones.

I love being 29 and being totally unhip.

Step aside, Juicero—and hold my “raw” water.

Last year, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Doug Evans brought us the Juicero machine, a $400 gadget designed solely to squeeze eight ounces of liquid from proprietary bags of fruits and vegetables, which went for $5 to $8 apiece. Though the cold-pressed juice company initially wrung millions from investors, its profits ran dry last fall after journalists at Bloomberg revealed that the pricy pouch-pressing machine was, in fact, unnecessary. The journalists simply squeezed juice out of the bags by hand.

But this didn’t crush Evans. He immediately plunged into a new—and yet somehow even more dubious—beverage trend: “raw” water.

Believe all women? No, not really.

A Good Samaritan claims his life is in tatters after a woman who he helped falsely accused him of sexual assault.

Kenan Basic spent two weeks in a maximum security prison, lost his job and is now going through a divorce, after a 19-year-old woman made false accusations against him.

Mr Basic stopped to help the teenager in November last year after she crashed her car and pulled into a BP in Bankstown, in Sydney's south-west.

The 36-year-old married father-of-one spent almost two hours helping the woman get her car back on the road.

An elected official isn't going to be successful because of race or gender. A Baltimore TV anchor and "The soft bigotry of low expectations".

A Baltimore television station has dismissed one of its anchors who drew criticism for a question she posed late last week about the gender and race of the city's past three mayors.

The ouster of Mary Bubala from WJZ-TV was first reported by the Baltimore Sun.

Bubala faced backlash after she asked a professor an on-air question about Catherine Pugh, the former mayor who resigned amid a widening scandal revolving around children’s books that she wrote.


Ms Pugh wasn't qualified, plain and simple.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) is a brave man. Not only is he highly decorated vet he faced the hags on The View and came out unscathed.

On Monday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw went up against several of the divas on “The View” on such topics as anti-semitism, Ilhan Omar, and President Trump.

On the border crisis, Crenshaw said, “Every country has the right to own its own sovereignty. Every country has the right to manage who comes in and out of those borders. And right now, it feels as though the United States does not have that right … We have no effective control over our border right now.”

Passing kindness along. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Before attending the big dance, Therese de Leon and her 10 friends arrived at Ted's Bulletin for dinner. As they were looking over the menu, their server returned to inform them they were in for a treat.

"He told us that there was a lady that night who was a regular customer at Ted's. She wasn't served by our server, Antonio, that night, but usually is," Therese told Fox 5. "She asked him which tables he had that night but said we were his only table. She told him that we looked absolutely stunning and offered to pay for our dinner -- anything we wanted."

At the end of their dinner, the prom group walked over to the woman's table, took a photo with her and thanked her for making their night truly special.
