THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

“What is the point in calling yourself a liberal, if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view.” Piers Morgan


Quote II

"It was a place for children who were having hard days. I know I go stir crazy if I'm sitting indoors for a long period of time. 'You're having a hard time inside? Let's go outside, play in the dirt and find some worms.'"Wande Okunoren-Meadows


Quote III

“We as a country cannot afford to only stand up and fight for our freedoms when we are the targets; but when someone else is a target we turn our backs and walk away. This is a danger for all of us. … Can you imagine if Google’s CEO was a conservative Republican who was shutting down Democrat voices that they disagreed with? Can you imagine how up in arms progressives would be if it were their voices being shut down?” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)


Quote IV

If I can produce someone who saw John Roberts’ penis in college, can we get the Obamacare opinion overturned? Ann Coulter


Quote V

Our [Founding Fathers] guaranteed us the right to a Jury Trial for situations just like this. That the founders understood absolute power corrupts absolutely and that we should be judged by a jury of our peers, not the government. You all should feel lucky to be sitting for such an important trial. The verdict that you come back with will send one of two very different messages to the people of Macomb County. We either have the right to free speech, or if the people of Macomb criticize our elected officials they better watch out. Nicholas Somberg


Quote VI

"It's outrageous that a company would claim millions of taxpayer dollars for doing nothing. This shows a careless disregard for program rules and American taxpayers," "I have asked our Enforcement Bureau to investigate this matter to determine the full extent of the problem and to propose an appropriate remedy."
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai


Quote VII

“Please don’t legislate the 150 million people just like me into being criminals. It has happened. You’ve already done it,” “I was a bump stock owner, and I had to make a decision: do I become a felon, or do I comply?” Dianna Muller

TeachersEducators always make sure to tell us that they are the best and brightest and sacrifice the most. The funny thing is they sure don't know how to think outside of the box. A 5 year old is a sex offender. Really?

A family in the United States says their five-year-old son with autism has been labelled a “sex offender” after he hugged a fellow classmate.

Nathan is a nursery school pupil at East Ridge Elementary in Chattanooga, Tennessee. School officials said he was warned several times but overstepped his boundaries in hugging another child.

Summery Putnam, the young boy’s guardian told a local TV outlet, News Channel 9, that she received a call from her son’s teacher at the start of September.

She said Nathan’s teacher told her he had been accused of “sexual activities” for hugging a child and kissing another on the cheek.

But Ms Putnam said the five-year-old was unaware he had crossed any kind of boundary.

Falling into the category of "NO SHIT SHERLOCK"


A leading psychologist has voiced his concern about the mental well-being of autistic teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Greta made international headlines last week after inspiring millions of people across 150 countries to take to the streets for the Global Strike 4 Climate on Friday.

The 16-year-old schoolgirl from Sweden then made a passionate speech berating world leaders for climate inaction at the UN summit in New York on Tuesday.

But as the teenager continues to divide opinion for her opinions on climate change, one of Australia's most-high profile psychologists has accused the girl of being an 'entitled political pawn' in need of treatment.


After FNC's dismissal of Michael Knowles I guess this Doc won't be invited to FNC anytime soon.

Never mind the Ginger vs. Mary Ann argument. The SS Minnow was named after the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

Gilligan's Island creator Sherwood Schwartz named the ill-fated S.S. Minnow after the then-chair of the FCC who Schwartz said "ruined television." From Robert M. Jarvis's 1998 article in the Santa Clara Law Review:

On May 9, 1961, Newton N. Minow, the recently-appointed Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), gave one of the most famous speeches in American history. Appearing at the 39th Annual Convention of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) in Washington, D.C., Minow decried the "vast wasteland" that television had become and demanded that the networks take more responsibility for the content of the shows they aired.

How to stop a robbery in a most unusal manner. Fog cannon.

A man's alleged attempt to rob a dairy was foiled after a fog cannon went off in the shop.

CCTV footage showed a man apparently armed with a machete entering the store in Kaikohe, Northland and hitting the counter with his weapon.

But after the manager fired the fog cannon, the man left the store empty handed, according to a video uploaded to the North Shore, Rodney and West Auckland police Facebook page.

Fog cannons are machines that release dense fog when triggered.

Not content to deal with the opioid crisis, homelessness or Orwellian big tech practices, Rep. Josh Harder (D-CA) has his eyes set on Barstool Sports.

The attacks on Barstool Sports by liberals never seem to end.

After Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy got the Twitter verse chattering when he decided to go toe-to-toe with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over unionization, the sports website founder could now find himself potentially having to fend off civil suits..

Well, that’s if Congressman Josh Harder has his way.

Neo-cons smugly tell us they are soooooo smart. They say socialism has never worked and never will. And they are right. However, if foreign intervention never worked in Afghanistan why will our presence there be any different? The Taliban clearly don't want us there and are willing and able to wait us out.

The Taliban reiterated that its prime objectives in negotiations with the US is to get Coalition forces to withdrawal from Afghanistan and the “establishment of an Islamic government,” a thinly veiled reference to the return of the Taliban’s Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

The Taliban also said that it was “religiously” obligated to continue fighting until the US leaves the country.

The message is nothing new. The Taliban has repeatedly stated that it has a religious obligation to wage jihad to expel foreign forces, and has said the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is the only true representative of the Afghan people.

The Taliban made the most recent claims in a short statement, titled Occupation and Ceasefire!!, published on its official website, Voice of Jihad, on Sept. 21.

In the statement, the Taliban argued that the US canceled negotiations to withdraw because the US would not agree to the ceasefire. The Taliban said that a ceasefire “will only prolong and strengthen the occupation,” and that it will continue to fight until the US agrees to leave.

“Unless the occupation ceased, the war will not see an end,” it reads. “We are religiously and inherently obligated to continue our Jihad until the complete expulsion of invaders.”

The Taliban then reiterated it has two “clear-cut objectives:” 1) forcing the US to withdraw, and 2) the establishment of an “Islamic government.”

It is time to leave that hellhole. If the Taliban acts up or harbor other enemies, we can bomb them back to the 5th century.

Florida, roommates and avocados. Of course Genius Award Winner.

A flap involving an avocado and a middle finger wound up sending a 56-year-old woman to the slammer, according to an arrest affidavit.

The 72-year-old woman identified as the victim told Port St. Lucie police Sept. 13 that she was watching television on the couch when her 56-year-old roommate got upset because she “allegedly ate all the sliced-up avocado” in the refrigerator.

The 72-year-old woman said the 56-year-old woman yelled about the missing avocado before the 72-year-old woman “showed … her middle finger.”

An avocado is a pear-shaped fruit with green skin and a large seed in the middle that grows on trees. Known as alligator pears, avocados are high in monounsaturated fat and feature prominently in guacamole.

A grandfather is the center of Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

João Stanganelli Jr. is a 64-year-old Brazilian grandfather with a bright smile and kind nature. But when he was 38 years old, he noticed that his skin was becoming patchy. After visiting doctors, and undergoing tests, they determined that he was suffering from vitiligo.


Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition in which patches of the skin lose their pigment, becoming white with sharp margins. The disorder, which affects roughly 1-3 percent of the population, is otherwise harmless physically, but it can result in psychological stress and social stigma. João is one of more than 3 million people in Brazil who suffer from the disease.

But he never let his condition get him down, and continued to work hard until about a year ago, when he had to leave his job because of a heart condition.

Not one to sit around and do nothing, João decided that he needed a hobby to keep his mind busy. So and his wife decided to learn how to crochet. He said it was hard to learn, and he wanted to give it up at one point, but he kept at it, and in just over a week, he had crocheted his first doll.
