The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

What prepares men for totalitarian domination in the non-totalitarian world is the fact that loneliness, once a borderline experience usually suffered in certain marginal social conditions like old age, has become an everyday experience Hannah Arendt


Quote II

“We regret this lapse of judgment on our part. I do not want to be a distraction to the conduct of this very important election. I therefore hereby resign from this board effective immediately.”South Carolina elections official Dean Smith


Quote III

“She comes from a place that doesn’t even have a government and then she comes here, she tells us how to run our country, and she hates our country.”President Donald J. Trump


Quote IV

“Donald Trump’s repeated unhinged, conspiratorial attacks on me and other prominent female politicians are not just sexist. They are leading to frequent threats against our lives. It has to stop,” Rep. Ilhan Omar Nur (D-MN)

Quote V

“Of course they’re not gonna follow through. We knew the celebrities were self-centered. We knew they were stupid. We just didn’t know how cowardly they were. I’m tired of these people saying this…’If I don’t get the president I want, I’m going to leave.’ All right; well, you’re not the kind of person I think I want around. I’m glad we didn’t have celebrities like this in World War II…’ Roosevelt’s not my president. I can’t fight on Omaha beach. I’m out of here.’Michael Loftus


Quote VI

“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over. Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.” Rush Limbaugh

Oh thank you George Fucking Bush.

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a Republican application to stay the decision of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to grant the Democratic Party’s request to make several changes to mail-in voting that critics have decried as vulnerable to fraud.

As Breitbart News reported last month, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled … that ballots received three days after Election Day will still be counted — even if there is no evidence they were postmarked on time.”

I suggest to the City of Compton that they study Margaret Thostaer and the following: "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money."

800 Compton residents to get guaranteed income in two-year pilot program

Jacqueline Andrade and her husband both lost their jobs in March, at a point during the pandemic when grocery store shelves were being ransacked and government aid seemed far off.

The program will aim to include a representative sample of the 68% of Latino and 30% of Black residents in Compton, as well as those often excluded from federal and state aid programs, including undocumented immigrants and formerly incarcerated residents.

Ahmad said it remains to be seen whether a model that gives varying amounts of cash to needy residents will be effective and whether there are sustainable ways to fund a long-term guaranteed income program.


Of course there aren't sustainable ways to fund this panacea.

Yours truly and The ONT are sick and tired of the Kung Flu. So is President Trump.

“People are tired of COVID. I have these huge rallies,” Trump said on the call, according to CNN. “People are saying whatever. Just leave us alone. They’re tired of it. People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots … Fauci is a nice guy. He’s been here for 500 years.”

“Fauci is a disaster. If I listened to him, we’d have 500,000 deaths,” the president added, going on to say it would be 700,000 or 800,000. “If there’s a reporter on, you can have it just the way I said it, I couldn’t care less.”

Not sure what she was consuming. How to save the NFL in three easy steps.

The National Football League stands at the edge of the abyss. It is about to lose a multi-billion-dollar industry and the awareness of this peril is beginning to seep into the consciousness of its members. The lack of crowds at the NFL games have gone from worrisome to absolute devastation. Breitbart journalist Warner Todd Huston has been documenting the empty stands for several years now, and each year the situation grows more dire. Even before the COVID-19 crisis, millions of fans had stopped watching games. The viewership numbers get more dismal every game day.

Here’s where the problem really started. Basketball player Charles Barkley said this in a famous 1993 Nike commercial: “I’m not a role model. Just because I dunk a basketball doesn’t mean I should raise your kids.” The attitude of separating good character from athletic ability seeped into professional sports like a poison. The NFL became blasé about keeping on a wife beating player or one who abused dogs. As long as the athletes could perform, their personal lives were none of the owner’s concerns. Murder? Whatever.

The three steps mentioned would go a long way in the salvaging of the NFL. However, there is no way the wokesters of the NFL would go for this. Even Jerry Jones has the spine of linguine.

Sure it could happen anywhere. But it didn't. Of course it's Florida. Florida Men and the case of 10,000 rounds of ammunition.

Two people have been hospitalized for burns suffered after touching off a fire, apparently while loading ammunition in a Venice, Florida home.

From fox13news.com:

The home on Sunset Beach Drive was engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived Thursday afternoon.

They reported hearing the pops of exploding ammunition as the fire burned through the house and garage. Nearby residences had to be temporarily evacuated.

The garage is where two people were apparently hand-filling rounds of ammunition when the fire started.

Acquiring a green thumb during the Pandemic House Arrest Quarantine.

Patrick Kilcoyne first figured out how to grow weed in small spaces back in college. A snowboarding accident had left him with plenty of free time and in considerable pain, which he didn’t want to treat with pharmaceuticals. And so, the 32-year-old attempted to simultaneously fill his day and ease his agony by learning to grow weed in a “stealth grow box.” “The size limitations of that box forced me to learn how to grow in a small pot while still keeping the plant happy,” he says.

Fast-forward to quarantine, yet another moment in his life when he was in need of a major distraction. But instead of a small, stealth grow box, he turned to an empty bonsai pot previously buried and forgotten at the back of his garden in San Diego. “When I found it, I figured, ‘What the heck?’”

With some “Blue Gorilla autoflower seeds on hand,” Kilcoyne decided to create a bonsai tree from marijuana. Or as those in the community call it, cannabonsai (or bongsai, depending on who you ask). His first bongsai tree went pretty smoothly, but he’s since “been humbled several times by Mother Nature.” “Growing in such a small pot has its setbacks,” he explains. “But learning how to dance with the plant and get around those speed bumps is half the fun.”

Per Ace earlier today, CNN Legal Analyst and Noted Abortion-Financier Jeffrey Toobin Suspended from New York Magazine After Exposing His Penis in a Zoom Conference Well Toobin isn't the only one not in favor of Zoom meetings now.

Lately, Zoom meetings have been hitting a nerve with CEOs.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says there's no vital "creative combustion" happening in virtual settings.

American Airlines CEO Doug Parker finds Zoom meetings awful.

And Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls them transactional, where "30 minutes into your first video meeting in the morning ... you're fatigued."

Early during the pandemic lockdowns, in April, many were touting the benefits. James Gorman, CEO of Morgan Stanley, said his bank would need much less real estate in the future because even though he was a fan of having teams together, "we've proven we can operate with no footprint."

If she only put in as much work to demonstrate she was a superior worker........Woman jailed for four years after spiking her co-workers coffee with sedatives.

An Italian woman was recently sentenced to four years in jail after she admitted to spiking a work colleague’s drink with sedatives, so she would underperform.

This disturbing story of work rivalry taken to the extreme dates back to October 6th of 2017, when Mariangela Cerrato brought a round of coffees for her colleagues at an office in Bra, a town in Italy’s Piedmont region. She brought the coffees and cappuccinos from a nearby bar, as she usually did, so no one suspected anything shady. However, after downing her cappuccino in one gulp, one of Cerrato’s colleagues, Alice Bordon, started feeling dizzy and lost her balance walking to her desk. She was taken to the hospital where doctors checked for a potential stroke, not knowing that something more insidious was at play

The problem with recycling? There are many. Will there ever be a market for recycled plastic?

A few years back, it looked like plastic recycling was set to become a key part of a sustainable future. Then, the price of fossil fuels plunged, making it cheaper to manufacture new plastics. Then China essentially stopped importing recycled plastics for use in manufacturing. With that, the bottom dropped out of plastic recycling, and the best thing you could say for most plastics is that they sequestered the carbon they were made of.

The absence of a market for recycled plastics, however, has also inspired researchers to look at other ways of using them. Two papers this week have looked into processes that enable "upcycling," or converting the plastics into materials that can be more valuable than the freshly made plastics themselves.

Never stick your dick tongue into crazy. Genius Award Winner.

A Florida Woman is behind bars for allegedly attacking her 69-year-old boyfriend after he refused to perform a sex act on her, police report.

According to cops, Katanya Jordan, 46, was arrested following a 3 AM disturbance yesterday inside the Largo residence she shares with the victim, Jordan’s longtime boyfriend.

The man told police that he had been arguing with Jordan “in reference to the defendant ‘smoking crack.’”

Jordan, the man charged, was high and “began yelling at him to perform oral sex.” The victim, however, declined Jordan’s request, prompting her to allegedly begin “hitting and scratching him.” The man, cops noted, sustained “several small lacerations” which appeared to have been “caused by fingernails.”

A witness corroborated the victim’s account of the confrontation, according to an arrest affidavit.

A girl with glitter. It's not what you think. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

The young inventor from Columbia, Missouri was born with a left arm that stopped developing beyond the elbow. Although some people would look at her under-developed limb as just a disability, Jordan used her condition to launch her superhero alter ego.


When she was 10 years old, Jordan attended a STEM workshop that encouraged kids with disabilities to think creatively about their condition—so with a 3D-printer at her disposal, she designed her own prosthetic arm that could shoot glitter from the tip.
