The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"We recognize that cutting down on sodium in your diet is hard to do on your own because about 70 percent of the sodium we eat comes from processed, packaged, and prepared foods," Susan Mayne, director of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition

Nannies gotta nanny. Do you think our Founding Fathers thought that some unelected
government nanny decide what we can and cannot eat would be governing us today?

Quote II

"Look, the big picture is that we have a tax gap that over the next decade is estimated at $7 trillion. Namely, a shortfall in the amount that the IRS is collecting due to a failure of individuals to report the income that they have earned." Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen

Quote III

We don’t have a trillion-dollar debt because we haven’t taxed enough; we have a trillion-dollar debt because we spend too much.” President Ronald Reagan

Quote IV

The lefty vax freaks are having too much fun being jerks about it though. They are miserable people who only find joy in spreading their emotional inadequacy and misery to others. It’s safe to say that they’re thrilled that people are losing their jobs over this. Stephen Kruiser

Meet the man who pulled nearly 100 snakes from under an SF Bay Area home

No, but there was definitely a movie-worthy amount of snakes living under a house in Santa Rosa, a city in California's Wine County 60 miles north of San Francisco.

Al Wolf, director of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue, responded to a call Oct. 2 from a woman who said a snake den was under her home.

I guess saying "Disturbed by the allegations." is better than uttering, What the fuck!

A Florida teacher charged with having sex with a 15-year-old student is now pregnant — but she won’t say who the father is, according to a report.

Heiry Calvi, 41, was arrested last Thursday for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with the male student at JC Bermudez Doral Senior High School, the Miami Herald reports.

Calvi told police after being taken into custody that she was pregnant but refused to say how far along she is or the father’s identity.

The teacher has been on leave since March when police were first tipped off after students reported seeing videos of Calvi allegedly having sex with the teenager.

I have no clue why amorous couples need to take photos and videos.

Ashes? No need for my relatives to get in trouble with a NFL team. They can just use a Waste Management dumpster.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and local authorities are investigating how ashes were able to be spread across Heinz Field on Sunday during the team’s win over the Denver Broncos.

The team and police said that someone spread their relative’s ashes at the stadium following the Steelers game, KDKA-TV reported. Fans are reportedly not permitted to spread ashes at all at Heinz Field and it’s illegal to do so in Pennsylvania without permission.

Captain Kirk, there and back.

You can attempt to spin. But there is never a justifiable reason to shoot an unarmed woman in the back. Unless you are despicable cop.

More than 500 pages of internal documents from DC Metropolitan Police concerning the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol on Jan. 6 reveal witness accounts stating she was not holding a weapon at the time of her death and how "upset" the officer was after shooting her.

"These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt," stated Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, which obtained the documents through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit. "The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police.

Unfortunately for Ashli Babbitt, she didn't check all of the Sainted Special Victimhood box.


Speaking of boxes. If she were black her election would be guaranteed.

An Antifa supporting candidate for Seattle City Attorney, campaigning to oversee the office’s $35 million budget, declared bankruptcy, has a massive amount of debt, and lives in subsidized housing.

Nicole Thomas Kennedy, who has campaigned on cutting the City Attorney’s criminal division and an end to prosecuting misdemeanors, has a massive amount of debt. According to her 2019 bankruptcy petition there is approximately $465,000 of debt, which is mostly student loans.

A man shooting arrows from a bow has been arrested after killing five and injuring two people in Norway. Multiple areas have been evacuated and police say it is too early to tell whether the attack was terrorism-related.
Norwegian public broadcaster NRK reported that five people were killed and two injured, one of whom was a plainclothes police officer. The lone attacker was taken into custody, but his identity has not been revealed. There is no suspicion that anyone else was involved.

How long have vaping instruments been available? The FDA is just getting around to give pronouncements.

WASHINGTON — Health officials on Tuesday authorized the first electronic cigarettes in the U.S., saying the R.J. Reynolds vaping products can benefit adult smokers.

The Food and Drug Administration said data submitted by the company showed its Vuse e-cigarettes helped smokers either quit or significantly reduce their use of cigarettes, the leading preventable cause of death in the U.S.

Tuesday's first-of-a-kind decision is part of a sweeping effort by the FDA to bring scientific scrutiny to the multibillion-dollar vaping industry after years of delays.

In September, the agency said it had rejected applications for more than a million e-cigarettes and related products, mainly due to their potential appeal to underage teens. But regulators delayed making decisions on most of the major vaping companies, including market leader Juul.

Things could have gone really bad. Perhaps it was a good thing he was stopped. Genius Award Winner, 1st Runner Up.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Lincoln Police Department arrested a man they say had a homemade explosive device in his pocket.

Florida Man is a horse f*cker and our Genius Award Winner.

Suspecting that someone had entered a barn on her property without permission, a Florida Woman set up a trail camera that subsequently recorded a laborer having repeated sexual contact with a horse housed in the structure, police report.

Homeowner Catherine Engel told police that last month she installed the trail camera inside the four-stall Vero Beach barn where her horses are kept after discovering ligature marks around one horse’s neck. She also recalled finding bungee cords and ropes around the neck of a miniature horse “even though she never placed any on it.”

The camera, cops say, captured Santiago Victoria, 57, entering the barn late at night and invading a stall occupied by a horse name Mariah. During three separate encounters, Victoria “gets behind the horse in a sexual manner,” according to an arrest affidavit.

The Indian River Sheriff’s Office affidavit provides a graphic account of Victoria’s alleged illicit conduct inside the barn.

Engel identified Victoria as the suspect, telling cops that he worked for a welding company that parks vehicles on the same property where the barn is situated.

Wham, bam, thank ya Sarah Jessica. He didn't even bring sugar cubes or apples. Cheap Genius Award Winner to boot.
