The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Quote II

Who says that Jeff Bezos & Amazon aren't good for the local economy?

Cars parked outside $12 million renovation project at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ D.C. mansion were tagged with at least 564 separate parking tickets costing nearly $17,000, of which $5,600 were listed as unpaid in DMV records, WUSA 9 recently reported.

Bezos bought the 27,000 square foot mansion in Kalorama (which used to be the Textile Museum) for $23 million in 2016, conveniently close to the Crystal City, Virginia site Amazon later selected for its second headquarters. He promptly dropped another $12 million on renovations that expanded it to 34,000 square feet. According to WUSA 9, public documents show that Bezos’ home now has “11 bedrooms, a ballroom, wine cellar, whiskey tasting room, a movie theater and more than 1,000 light fixtures.”


If I could play judge, jury and executioner. I've found the perfect case.

A father pimped out his 16-year-old daughter at truck stops after forcing her in to prostitution after learning she'd had sex.

Scott Robinson, 46, took the teenager to tractor stops near their home in Baytown, Texas, and forced her to approach men offering her body for money for four months.

She told police she had 'several' customers a night and that her father kept whatever money she made.

And he wouldn't go easy with lethal injection.

If you have free time and 99 cell phones. You to can create a traffic jam.

Smon Weckert loaded a hand-cart with cellphones and pulled them slowly through Berlin. This fooled Google Maps into registering severe congestion, marking the streets bright red in the service, and rerouting traffic to avoid the area.

One of last night's Quotes of The Day was from a professor who wants the 2nd Amendment repealed. As technology advances so does gun ownership.

What started as a political art project became the Liberator 12K, a prototype homemade 3-D printed 12-gauge shotgun.

Jeff Rodriguez brought two versions of the Liberator 12K to SHOT Show in Las Vegas, where he showed them off to enthusiastic crowds at Mark Serbu’s booth. There was a six-shot, revolver-style, pump-action 12-gauge shotgun, and a single shot break-action shotgun. He built them both in his basement to prove that anyone can make a working firearm with readily available parts.

All of the metal parts were purchased at Home Depot while the rest was 3-D printed thermoplastic polymer.

“A 3-D printer is basically a glorified hot glue gun on a robot,” said Rodriguez. “It’s fantastic for building prototypes.”

The six-shot revolver style action rotates using zig-zag grooves on the outside of the cylinder. Pumping the shotgun turns the cylinder with a metal pin on an actuator rod.

Florida. Alcohol. Dog shit. Some assembly required. Genius Award Winner.

FEBRUARY 3--A domestic argument turned repulsive Friday evening when a Florida Woman “smeared dog feces” in her fiancé’s face, police report.

Sheriff’s deputies responding to a disturbance call at a St. Petersburg home spoke to a man who said he had been “engaged in an argument” with his fiancé, Jane Marie Faulkner, 41.

During that confrontation, the man told cops, Faulkner “repeatedly” hit him and “smeared dog feces” in his face.

Faulkner, who was intoxicated, reportedly “spontaneously admitted to deputies they did smear dog feces in the face of the victim.” Faulkner, cops added, “was unwilling to provide any more details of the argument.”


Cold and wet yet Specialist Melvin Taylor is proud to serve. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Specialist Melvin Taylor was present at the funeral of 100-year-old WWII nurse veteran Annie Ruth McVadon recently and was called upon to play the iconic bugle call Taps as is tradition on these solemn occasions.
