The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I confess that from such freedom [of speech], inconveniences may sometimes arise. But what question was ever settled so wisely that no abuses could possibly spring therefrom?” Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza


Quote II

“Saying ‘bomb’ on a plane — that’s just being stupid. Mine is just funny.” Dillon Shane Webb


Quote III

“Adulting is something nobody prepares you for, but you know it when it happens. It’s the unglorified part of being on your own,” Rebekah Fitzsimmons


Quote IV

“If I were Donald Trump Jr.’s lawyer, I would tell him, you don’t need to go back into this environment anymore. “You’ve been there for hours and hours and nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation. I would call it a day.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

The steam is rising, "F*ck you, you little ba$tards. Eat sh!t and d!e. Contrary to your lazy train of thought and any curiosity, you do have a mother. And there is nothing wrong with celebrating a day for mothers.

A grade school has eliminated Mother’s Day because they no longer believe in males and females and gender doesn’t exist. Seriously, this is the garbage they are teaching kids.

The Brunswick East Primary School in Melbourne, Australia, has changed its annual Mother’s Day fundraiser where kids can buy little gifts like coffee mugs, candles, soaps and the like.

But now, instead of being called the Mother’s Day fundraiser, the table will be called the “appreciation stall.”

The State of Idaho has had enough with burdensome rules and regulations. Or what happens when there is government grid lock. Idaho repeals its regulatory code. H/T ArthurK

Something rather remarkable just happened in Idaho. The state legislature opted to—in essence—repeal the entire state regulatory code. The cause may have been dysfunction across legislative chambers, but the result is serendipitous. A new governor is presented with an unprecedented opportunity to repeal an outdated and burdensome regulatory code and replace it with a more streamlined and sensible set of rules. Other states should be paying close attention.

The situation came about due to the somewhat unconventional nature of Idaho’s regulatory process. Each year, the state’s entire existing body of regulations expires unless reauthorized for an additional year by the legislature. In most years, reauthorization happens smoothly, but not this year.

Instead, the legislature wrapped up an acrimonious session in April without passing a rule-reauthorization bill. As a result, come July 1, some 8,200 pages of regulations containing 736 chapters of state rules will expire. Any rules the governor opts to keep will have to be implemented as emergency regulations, and the legislature will consider them anew when it returns next January.


Lucky Idaho.

Whatever Bernie Sanders and AOC say, run, run away, run like the wind. Socialist Poster Children want us to bank with the US Postal Service.

Unfortunately, some members of Congress seem more interested in having the Postal Service expand its losing business into new areas. An overhaul of banking and credit card systems floated this week by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.) would effectively convert the Post Office into a bank of sorts, offering checking and savings accounts.

In other words, it would take a government agency that's already failing to compete with private sector alternatives in the shipping industry (despite massive structural advantages) and let it fail in competition against private banks as well—and would force poorer Americans to rely on that floundering institution as their primary provider of banking services. As Reason's Peter Suderman wrote yesterday, this is "not a new idea, but it is a bad one."

There are so many things wrong with this story. H/T redc1c4

A Michigan mom allegedly shot dead by her 9-year-old adopted son feared she was raising “the next serial killer,” her family said.

Pauline Randol, 51, was shot dead in her Fawn River Township home Monday and her young son, a second-grader, was charged with murder the following day.

Now a grieving daughter of the victim has revealed that her brother, who was adopted three years ago, had a history of mental health problems and “just recently started snapping,” terrifying their mother.

Are we really that far behind the former East Germany? Don't care for what someone said? Now you can report them.

Watch what you say, because the person sitting next to you could be reporting you to law enforcement.

Gone are the days when Americans were unafraid to voice their opinions or make snide comments in public. Because DIGIT Labs will turn smartphones into bias reporting devices.

According to a PHYS.org article, DIGIT LAB's new app allows strangers to report someone for exercising their first Amendment rights.

"The first of its kind, the app accepts reports beyond crimes captured in police records. Users from around the country can document all incident types, from derogatory epithets written in bathrooms to slurs yelled from a car window in addition to violent assaults."

The joys of living in a HOA.

Many automotive enthusiasts keep old cars around for a variety of reasons: some like working on a particular platform, and others enjoy not having a car payment. However, some develop a strong attachment to their beloved car and take pleasure in the nostalgia that it brings to them. Andy Lipka is one of those people, but he's facing a tough battle with his Homeowner's Association: lose the pickup truck or lose the home.

Lipka's 1965 Ford F-250 is his pride and joy. He describes it as well-running and "pretty close to perfect," despite the fading Tropical Turquoise paint and its bouts of surface rust which peppers the entirety of the truck. The owner says that he doesn't mind the blemishes, nor does he considered it to be damaged; it's simply way it "evolved over the years." In the automotive culture, this finish is called "patina" and has a very niche following which considers the mix of a dulled paint job and rust to be a badge of honor.

Why anyone would leave their child in a government school anymore is beyond me. An Oregon couple sue an indoctrination school district regarding transgendering their child.

When does in loco parentis cross over into just plain loco? A story from Oregon earlier this week demonstrates at least one instance where the line got crossed. A lawsuit alleges that a teacher took an 8-year-old aside to repeatedly question his gender identity, and then began giving him instruction on transitioning to female.

Now the parents are struggling to work and their 9-year-old son is still confused

How many rounds should you be permitted to have in your firearm? As many as you damn well please.

If four home invaders broke into your home, do you want a magazine of 10 or 30?


Speaking of self-defense, according to extreme heterosexual Spartacus, you don't need no stinkin' self-defense.

I am very much one that is against handguns. And I know, in my urban environment, I see little to no need for guns at all, and I think that the availability of guns and the ease with which even young people can get their hands on them is just horrendous, and I would, if I had the power to do so, I would. In fact, we're even looking towards making, doing some local level handgun legislation. I'm going to take every step I can to get guns of the hands of those who commit crimes or those who might commit crimes."


It's not the gun, it is the person who uses the gun.

Preliminary Genius Award Winner. The old for every action there is an equal reaction..........

Apparently not having common sense is a prerequisite to become a teacher and a Genius Award Winners.

Parents at a Southern California elementary school are calling for four staffers to be fired after a photo them posing and smiling with a noose.

The principal of the Summerwind Elementary School is also in their targets, after she emailed the photo to the entire school’s staff with the cryptic subject line, “Room 223 score,” NBC News reported.

The photo was shared hundreds of times on email and social media.

The five were placed on administrative leave while the district investigates.

Make-A-Wish is a great program. It's even better when a recipient is a donor. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

As a teenager with a heart condition (cardiomyopathy), Chris Boland asked for and was granted his wish to take a shopping spree by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Now, the 27-year-old is paying it forward and raising money for the charity with what it is calling the Butler Street Wish Crawl.

Participants who pay $30, every penny of which goes to the nonprofit, can begin the crawl at 1 p.m. Saturday at Belvederes, 4016 Butler St. The crawl will proceed across Lawrenceville, stopping at Industry Public House, North Park Lounge, The Abbey on Butler and New Amsterdam.
