The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Leave no man behind was our thing. Abandoning people should be fucking unconscionable. It is against the fundamental moral basis of who we are, but not to these fuckers. But they certainly can’t let the public focus on that. Larry Correia

Quote II

"I am going to be uniting when I become governor. I'm going to use my bully pulpit to unite us. Because we have far more in common than we have apart." Larry Elder CA Gubernatorial Candidate

I've never met Larry Elder. I like most of his views. But, I'm afraid he's wrong here.


Quote III

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. Winston Churchill

Quote IV

"We could really make this city shine. We could make it attractive for the kids who say there is nothing for them here." Ontario City Manager Adam Brown

No, I can't make this shit up. Our mentally retarded Commander-in-Chief wasn't happy with the arms we left behind in Afghanistan. He now wants to give them millions in cash.

President Biden and Secretary of State Blinken are under fire after announcing $64 million in aid to Taliban controlled Afghanistan.

"I'd complain about the witless troglodytes who voted for Biden, but... I try not to speak ill of the dead." The Rageaholic - NSFW Language

Well of course they are!

Congress is not subject to President Biden’s draconian vaccine mandate that applies to all federal workers and contractors, forcing them to get the COVID-19 vaccination whether they want to or not.

Biden’s mandate that was announced on Thursday eliminates the option for getting regular testing and instead orders federal employees and contractors to immediately get vaccinated or allegedly lose their jobs. Some religious and disability exemptions are being allowed but those are now in doubt as well.

I'm getting sick and fucking tired of this two tier bullshit.

Speaking of bullshit. I wish this asshole would FOAD.

Dr. Fauci: It May Take 'Many, Many' More Vaccine Mandates To Beat COVID-19

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, said that the only way to beat the coronavirus pandemic is through mass vaccinations.

Last week, President Joe Biden said that he is asking federal officials to mandate that all businesses with more than 100 employees vaccinate or test all of their workers. Dr. Fauci suggested that mandate may be just a start if the number of new coronavirus cases continues to surge.

He suggested that schools, colleges, and many small businesses will enact their own vaccine mandates now that Pfizer's vaccine has been fully approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

"I believe that's going to turn this around because I don't think people are going to want to not go to work or not go to college ... They're going to do it," Fauci told CNN'sJen Christensen. "You'd like to have them do it on a totally voluntary basis, but if that doesn't work, you've got to go to the alternatives."

The University's no response is all we need to know.

ST. LOUIS — A student leader — called a “senator” — at Washington University in St. Louis was caught removing miniature American flags from a 9/11 memorial display and bagging them as trash.

In a video posted by Young Americans for Freedom, the student can be seen removing the flags and placing them in bags and then carrying them away. A total of 2,977 flags were placed on the lawn representing each murdered 9/11 victim, Fox News reported.

Well that interview certainly didn't go well.

I wonder if I would have a shot at this job? Hey, I identify as a woman trapped in a kangaroo's body.

An Australian city council has banned men from applying for a $63,000-a-year street sweeper operator job in order to create an "inclusive" organization.

Darebin City Council, in Melbourne, the capital of Victoria (Vic) state, opened the job to people identifying as "non-male" to apply for the position before it closes on September 16.

In the job advertisement, the city council asked for a street sweeper operator and stated it was open to women, non-binary and transgender persons.

Fat and delusional is no way to go through life.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is launching a comeback tour as he considers whether to mount a 2024 presidential bid that could put him on a collision course with Donald Trump.

The former governor is set to deliver a Thursday evening speech at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Calif. — a traditional waystation for GOP presidential aspirants — as part of a speaker series the organization is hosting that focuses on the future of the Republican Party. The high-profile appearance comes as Christie intensifies his political activities ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, with a book on the way, a new perch helping the GOP raise money, and plans to help the party flip control of the House next year.

Go away Chris. Now.

You learn something new every day. The running world has "Footwear Police" and rules.

The Ethiopian winner of Europe’s first big-city marathon since the pandemic was disqualified by race organizers for wearing shoes with soles thicker than permitted.

Derara Hurisa crossed the line in the Vienna City Marathon in 2:09:22 on a warm early autumn morning, beating Kenyan Leonard Langat by three seconds.

If the Progtard kids aren't in school They can now watch educational television.

After its year-long haitus, “Cops” is returning to Fox this fall.

Fox News Media will air the 33rd season of the “documentary reality legal program” on Fox Nation, Fox’s streaming platform, on October 1st. As part of the return debut, four episodes will be included in the initial release, with additional episodes scheduled for every Friday night.

The long-running favorite was taken off the air by Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV) in 2020, in the wake of the George Floyd murder by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. “Cops” was not the only casualty of the national mood of the moment, with A&E’s “Live PD” also getting yanked from the air. Critics also complained that the show glorified police violence and unfairly portrayed racial minorities.


Unfairly portrayed racial minorities? I've watched Cops over the years. White trash aren't exempt from arrest.

Instead of hunkering down in his Delaware bunker, the resident of the White House was sunsetting awfully early in Idaho. Imagine if Trump's White House kept cutting the television feed?

The White House abruptly cut the feed of President Biden's briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials.

During Monday's visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west.

While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.

We told you he had mush for brains.
