The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“It’s time we stop asking officers to do everything, and time we get people the help they need instead of sending armed officers to knock on their door,” Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller


Quote II

"They were disobeying the rules. Just common sense, anytime you do anything like that, nothing good can happen." Marcus Watson at the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park.


Quote III

"The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings." Eric Hoffer


Quote IV

“I’m really trying to process this,” she told the Olympian. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair.” Olympia’s mayor, Cheryl Selby


Quote V

In any case, we hope to resolve this matter and continue doing what we do best: presenting you, our readers, with the truth no matter how inconvenient it may be. Meanwhile, for those who can afford it, please donate: we would be very grateful.Tyler Durden

Quote VI

"Well, listen, if he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it’s gonna take a team to make that decision."

"But I welcome that," "...support a club making that decision, and encourage them to do that."Roger Goodell

Listen up Roger. If Kaeperdick was good enough to play NFL ball, he would have been signed. The league has had women beaters & abusers, child abusers, drug abusers, alleged murderers and a cadre of other societal scum play. As long as they can play and produce they are on the field.

I'm so close to tossing my season tickets goodbye. I enjoy the game of football. I enjoy high school ball, college and NFL. For a couple of hours every Friday night, Saturday, Sunday and Monday I can escape politics and current events. I don't need BLM hypocrites shoving their shit down my throat.

I might have to tolerate your selfish ignorant behavior. That doesn't mean I have to accept it. And the same goes for my TV provider and the sponsors.

Say good bye to institutional racism and say hello to Caucasian Jacks.

PLANO, TX—When ballparks finally open again, those standing for the traditional seventh-inning stretch will be singing some different lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."


After over 100 years of selling its caramel popcorn snack under the name Cracker Jack, Frito-Lay announced today that it would be rebranded as the less offensive "Caucasian Jack."

"We are very sorry to all the crack---er, I mean, Caucasians we have hurt over the years," said a spokesperson. "Cracker is an offensive stereotype, and we must make sure that all foods and snack products are culturally sensitive. Think about all the white people who have had to suffer in silence as tens of thousands of baseball fans sang out the hurtful lyrics 'Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks.'"

"No more. The bigotry stops today."

Once again online presence has been compromised. Dating Apps Exposed 845 GB of Explicit Photos, Chats, and More 3somes, Gay Daddy Bear, and Herpes Dating are among the nine services that leaked the data of hundreds of thousands of users.

IT'S PAINFULLY COMMON for data to be exposed online. But just because it happens so often that doesn't make it any less dangerous. Especially when that data comes from a slew of dating apps that cater to specific groups and interests.

Security researchers Noam Rotem and Ran Locar were scanning the open internet on May 24 when they stumbled upon a collection of publicly accessible Amazon Web Services "buckets." Each contained a trove of data from a different specialized dating app, including 3somes, Cougary, Gay Daddy Bear, Xpal, BBW Dating, Casualx, SugarD, Herpes Dating, and GHunt. In all, the researchers found 845 gigabytes and close to 2.5 million records, likely representing data from hundreds of thousands of users. They are publishing their findings today with vpnMentor.

The information was particularly sensitive and included sexually explicit photos and audio recordings. The researchers also found screenshots of private chats from other platforms and receipts for payments, sent between users within the app as part of the relationships they were building. And though the exposed data included limited "personally identifying information," like real names, birthdays, or email addresses, the researchers warn that a motivated hacker could have used the photos and other miscellaneous information available to identify many users. The data may not have actually been breached, but the potential was there.

"We were amazed by the size and how sensitive the data was," Locar says. "The risk of doxing that exists with this kind of thing is very real—extortion, psychological abuse. As a user of one of these apps you don’t expect that others outside the app would be able to see and download the data."

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream biased big tech.

Rather than edit the world’s discourse, why not help it go well? Why not promote critical thinking? When a user views content, why not cross reference to contrasting or deeper analyses rather than promote content similar to the original? Why not cross reference to actual data sources rather than cite journalists as authorities, like Twitter did? And why not cite and link to actual and contrasting studies rather than vaguely refer to expert opinion?

Big Tech and others should try on these three propositions: (1) Everyone is biased because we learn largely from our interpretations of experiences; (2) Everyone is misinformed because we cannot see, nor could we absorb, all information; and (3) Progress is forming new biases that are closer to reality than our old beliefs. So the question for Big Tech becomes: “What processes can its employees use to constantly improve their biases?” Then maybe Big Tech can help others improve their processes for progress.

Everything is racist including cereal.

Coco Pops have been a much-loved breakfast staple for decades with one of the most recognisable mascots in TV advertising.


But Coco the Monkey has come under suspicion from disgraced former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya, who has written to Kellogg's asking why they chose that animal to represent the chocolate-flavoured cereal when Rice Krispies uses 'three white boys'.

The reaction to Covid-19 by state and local authorities was knee jerk. And once again proves that money doesn't grow on trees and businesses don't survive on their magic wands. Government shut them down but expenses continue to be incurred. Warning ‘the boom is over,’ DC bars & restaurant appeal to landlords for rent relief

Warning that “the boom is over,” a group of independent owners penned an open letter published by the Washington Post that spoke of the consequences if landlords don’t work with them.

After citing better times and their contributions to the city, the letter references the impact of the coronavirus outbreak — interestingly, there is no mention of the Black Lives Matter riots and the ensuing damage to many businesses.

“To achieve our dream, we relied on our partnerships with you, our landlords, to be both long-term and mutually beneficial. And to a point they were,” they wrote in the letter. “But Covid-19 has threatened to end our successful partnerships with our landlords.”

“None of us could have predicted that on Monday, March 16, we would be shut down by the mayor because of a global pandemic,” the establishments added. “The boom is over, and it does not appear to be coming back soon. If hospitality was hard before, it’s nearly impossible now.”

Western civilization is suppose to alter its way of life for 'Climate Change'. Fossil fuels need to be banned. Renewable energy is the cat's meow. Funny thing, the adolescent retard drop out and Al Gore don't mention anything about sun spots. Of course they don't as man has nothing to do with those. H/T Hrothgar.

The lack of sunspots for the entire month, however, also suggests that the ongoing minimum will be the deepest in centuries. In fact, the number of days where the Sun’s visible hemisphere was blank both last year and this year remains the highest in two centuries. This lack of sunspots also strengthens the possibility that the next maximum will also be the weakest in two centuries.

In the past, a weak maximum and a deep minimum has signaled colder weather on Earth. The link is not yet understood, though there is one theory related to the increase in cosmic rays hitting the atmosphere and creating more cloud cover and thus cooling the climate. This remains unproven, as yet.

If true, however, the next few years will be colder, not warmer as predicted by global warming activists. Or at least, the climate will not warm, as we have seen in the past twenty years during the previous weak minimum and maximum.

Living his dream and helping people out. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day

Pastor Bill Losasso founded the Florida Dream Center in St. Petersburg, Florida. He works to help those trapped in hopeless situations and those down on their luck. Every weekend his organization gives away 25,000 pounds of food.

For his birthday, he wanted to relive his dream at 17 years old when he drove an ice cream truck around for a day.

On Saturday, he handed out hundreds of ice cream treats for free.

"Out here they don't get ice cream very often," Losasso told Fox 13. "We had people tell us it's been a year and a half since they had any ice cream and little kids said that."
