The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"These are my scars on full display in 2019. I'm proud of my scars and love my body just the way it is. I call them my battle wounds because they signify the strength and perseverance it took to finally complete my transition." Jazz Jennings


Quote II

"And that may be true, I wasn't there and I don't know the facts that somebody in the congregation had their own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it is the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot. You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place." Former NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, Candidate for POTUS


Quote III

We forget that knowledge can be found at all ages, and in all places. And ethics has nothing to do with degrees or pedigrees.Victor Davis Hanson


Quote IV

‘I feel for that Greta. She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn’t.

‘She hasn’t done anything wrong but she’s been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true.’ Meat Loaf


Quote V


"Further data collection is not legally permissible. Both internally and externally, any classification that could be used to depreciate human beings must be avoided. In this respect, the use of the term 'family clan' (Familienclan) is forbidden from the police point of view."NRW Interior Minister Ralf Jäger


Quote VI

Tonight is the Golden Globe Awards. I don't have enough f*cks to give. I really don't. Misanthropic Humanitarian

They spent years fighting one another. Times have changed. If Iraq wants to be governed by Iran. So be it. The parliament of Iraq wants U.S. troops out.

BAGHDAD — Iraq’s Parliament called for the expulsion of U.S. troops from the country Sunday in reaction to the American drone attack that killed a top Iranian general, raising the prospect of a withdrawal that could allow a resurgence by Islamic State extremists.

Lawmakers approved a resolution asking the Iraqi government to end the agreement under which Washington sent forces more than four years ago to help in the fight against ISIS.

The bill is subject to approval by the Iraqi government. Even then, canceling the U.S.-Iraq agreement requires giving the Americans a one-year notice for withdrawal.


We took out a bad guy and can leave that f*cking hell hole. I'm OK with that. Wonder who Captain Bill and all of his faculty lounge warmongers are going to hate and want American treasure to die for next.

Don't worry, I will remain the Misanthropic Humanitarian not the "Naked Philanthropist".

A woman on Instagram just pulled off a massive, and rather nontraditional, fundraising campaign.

Kaylen, who calls herself the “naked philanthropist” online, had a clever idea when she heard of the damage the fires in Australia are wreaking. On Jan. 3, Kaylen made a new post to her Instagram, promising an exchange with any users who were willing to donate. As long as at least $10 went to the cause, Kaylen would reward donors with a nude. Simple, sweet, and—as it turns out—massively effective. Over the course of the next several days, Kaylen managed to rack up more than $300,000 in donations.

My Semester With the Snowflakes - At 52, I was accepted to Yale as a freshman. The students I met there surprised me.

Now back to that bridge. I need to figure out how to actually build one. Good thing I’ve found a place where I can get help. If this place is peopled by “snowflakes” I’m proudly one of them. I’m a snowflake with a purple heart.

Peace.

Jeez, I have no idea why the MSM is despised. No clue whatsoever.

The media has a less than stellar track record when it comes to their assessments of heinous, murderous leaders. Such was the case in 2017, when Time magazine referred to the now-deceased Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani as “James Bond, Erwin Rommel and Lady Gaga rolled into one.”

Your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, this is an actual quote derived from Time’s 100 Most Influential list in which Soleimani was included. The introductory sentence written by former CIA analyst Kenneth M. Pollack is a quintessential example of the tone- deaf mentality those in the media possess: "To Middle Eastern Shi'ites, he is James Bond, Erwin Rommel and Lady Gaga rolled into one."

Elections have consequences. Every day water usage might make you a "criminal".

The blue governments that Californians continually vote in may have finally crossed the line, at least so it seems to these KTLA news anchors.

A video of the show titled “KTLA 5 Morning News Anchors Get Redpilled,” shows the anchors discussing the matter at hand, specifically regarding California’s 55 gallon-of-water-per-day.

“I’m not sure how I feel about this,” said anchor Jessica Holmes to her co-anchors. “You’re not going to be allowed to shower and do a load of laundry in the same day.”

While that may sound insane, what California Attorney Richard Lee breaks down the hypothetical figures.


I believe there is a bar of soap and a shower joke to be made.

Tomorrow, January 6th is #JewishandProud Day. If you are going to celebrate, keep your head on a swivel.

“Whether you have a kippah, a necklace with a Jewish symbol, a t-shirt written in Hebrew, or anything else identifiably Jewish, wear your Jewishness publicly and proudly, in the United States or abroad, in cities big and small,” said the AJC. “Even if you don’t have something identifiably Jewish to wear, print our #JewishandProud sign or make your own image featuring the #JewishandProud slogan and post a photo of yourself with the image and hashtag on social media.”

Those who are not Jewish are invited to use the hashtag online or submit a message at AJC.org/JewishandProud about what they will be doing in 2020 to support the Jewish community.

Who knew that spare change could make such a difference. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Back in 2016, a determined Irishman began collecting spare change to help sick children—and he is now on track to buy an MRI machine for a local hospital.

Liam Duggan first started pursuing his dream of building a children’s hospital by standing outside of a local cafe with a cardboard sign so he could gather spare change from generous passerby.
