The Quotes of The Day



Quote I
Liberals know nothing, but always express themselves with great bravado and certainty. These are people who claim to know exactly what the temperature will be a decade from now, but have trouble with what will happen next week. Their confident predictions are as useless as bill of impeachment or an Iowa vote count. Ann Coulter



Quote II
What is called populism today is simply the West waking up from the long slumber that was the great battle between two empires. Generations of Europeans sublimating national interests for a common defense are now waking up from that period to assert those interests again. In the US, regional and now racial interests that have long been suppressed are bubbling up to the surface. Just as NATO is an entity from a bygone era, cosmopolitan globalism is the echo of a bygone age. The Zman Blog

While the Commies and socialists are counting votes in New Hampshire. There is a young man in Venezuela trying to flee.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that it’s been the hardest puzzle in my life, the one that I’ve tried to solve for nearly two years now to no avail. Starting a new life away from the Venezuelan disaster was a goal my mother had—fate alas, had other things destined for her, and fighting against the Leiomyosarcoma that took her life became the priority.

She was well underway on her paperwork, easy peasy for a doctor of her caliber (six medical specialties and a 26-page resume), but then her cancer worsened, and well, you know what happened.

I made a promise to my mother on her deathbed, that I would get my brother out of this country, and that he’d live a better life. Over the past two years it’s become increasingly harder and harder, to the point that now, 22 months since I made that promise, I find myself having exhausted every card in my hand.

Are you unique? Are you competitive? This might be the competition for you. Competitive Winter Picnicking.

Regarding our "people will make a competition out of anything" category, you are invited to enter the second annual Competitive Winter Picnicking event from Shadow Traffic. This year's picnic will be on March first at Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn. While we don't know if that date will be "wintery" with snow and ice, it is expected to at least be muddy. Which will only make it more fun for extreme competition-type people.

Our judges will be scoring the categories of Richest Picnic Meal, Tastiest Picnic Drink, Funnest Picnic Game and Tightest Thematic Team. That last one will be judged on costumes, props, puns/references and overall synergy. Cash prizes will be awarded. Judges are bribeable.

If Larry King shows up to Burger King on Friday, There could be problems.

Valentine's Day is coming up, and the last thing you probably want to think about is your ex. Well, just this once, I think you're going to want to dig up your old memory box because Burger King is letting you trade those not-so-romantic memories for a delicious burger.

This Valentine's Day, select Burger King locations in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Boston will have Birds of Prey-themed “breakup boxes.” (For all those not in the know, Birds Of Prey is an upcoming movie about Batman villain Harley Quinn, starring Margot Robbie.) If you bring a printed photo of your ex and stuff it inside one of the boxes, you'll receive a free Whopper. Finally: Your ex is good for something!

They say Virginia is for lovers. Current law says otherwise.

Lawmakers in Virginia are closing a legal loophole that could charge unmarried people with a crime for having consensual sex.

The House of Delegates passed a bill this week that aims to repeal the crime of fornication, which makes it illegal for people to have consensual sex outside of marriage.

Currently, fornication is a Class 4 misdemeanor and carries a fine of up to $250.

Don't mess with the police horse. Genius Award Winner, 1st Runner Up.

Organized but forgetful. Genius Award Winner.

Nashville police arrested a burglary suspect who allegedly dropped a notebook during a break-in linking him to another house that was also burglarized that same day.

Robert Shull Goddard, 49, allegedly broke into a house in the Hillwood neighborhood on Jan. 29 by smashing the glass on the back door, then stole “multiple items including a television and firearm,” according to court records filed in Davidson County court.

But, as authorities describe it, Goddard left something behind too.

Prosecutors say in court records Goddard dropped a notebook during the burglary that listed multiple addresses in it. One of those addresses was for another home a few miles away that had been burglarized that same day. The notebook also contained clues to the burglar's identity — notes from his daughter and her address.

Goddard was also caught on video kicking in the back door of a third house the following day, court records state.
