The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"We don't know if it was road rage or if it was someone actually trying to get these individuals," "So, prayers for their family. The kids are safe right now." Lt. R. Willkens with the Houston police department


Quote II

‘Joe Biden, you are not a president, you are a piece of shit,’ ‘Thousands of Americans are stuck over there in Afghanistan and you are letting the Taliban kick your ass, while you are lecturing governors about masks and vaccines. Do your job, bring these Americans home.’Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA)


Quote III

“I don’t say this lightly and I’ve never said it about anybody else — any other leader in this position. People have been talking about impeaching President Biden. I don’t believe President Biden should be impeached.”

“He’s the commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces who’s just essentially surrendered to the Taliban. He shouldn’t be impeached. He should be court-martialed for betraying the United States of America and the United States armed forces. Colonel Richard Kemp, CBE, formerly in charge of all British military operations in the country

Bullshit! The resident of the White House is a fucking incompetent individual and a piss poor liar.

Mockery and contempt.
Biden and the Democrats have been selling the same crap for the last year that they tried to sell with Obama. That somehow America was disrespected on the world stage and the soft intellectual delicateness of the Democrat brain trust would restore it.

Except they are idiots, and their delicate brains are no match for the world stage, where they continue to do what Democrats have done best since Jimmy Carter and before: undermine freedom and enable terror.

Witness the awesome “respected by allies, feared by foes” power of the Biden administration, as the Islamist terror group they surrendered to struts around in the leftovers of our retreat.

How the long-dead public-television painter Bob Ross became a streaming phenomenon (and kicked up plenty of dirt in the process)

Netflix has its towering complex in Hollywood. Disney Plus has its famed Burbank, Calif., lot. But it may be an anonymous office park in Herndon, Va. — next door to a used-computer store just four miles from Dulles Airport — where some of the most cutting-edge streaming work is being shaped.

The space houses the roughly dozen employees of Bob Ross Inc., which controls its namesake’s likeness and steers its future, fielding the numerous licensing suitors who blow up its suburban phone lines. Run by a little-known family-business executive named Joan Kowalski, the firm has turned a public-television painter who died 26 years ago into a supremely unlikely hero of the digital video age.

It also, according to its critics, has provided a cautionary tale of how aggressiveness and lawsuits can be used to steal a legacy.

The law never takes vacation. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

You might call it a busman’s holiday: a Dutch police officer on holiday in Spain has spotted and nabbed a criminal suspect from Haarlem. NH Nieuws reports that local police in Spain’s Torremolinos arrested a man suspected of involvement in a stabbing incident in his Dutch hometown this June, after the off-duty Dutch copper recognised him in a café. She first made a call to check if the 24-year-old was still on the wanted list after an incident involving stabbing a homeless man. The suspect’s home was later shut down by the local mayor under hard drug laws.
