The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"We've just moved from lots of confusion where most people were not aware, could not figure out, if they were eligible for a booster," Jennifer Kates, a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation

Quote II

"Across the board, retailers are getting more concerned with this growing trend. … It is definitely a tough problem to solve, given the organized nature and number of people involved in many of the incidents," Chris Walton, a former Target executive

What is needed is deterrence. A fatal gunshot wound I think is a good start.

Quote III

That’s OK, I’m just going to do my job and I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying. Dr. Anthony Fauci


Quote IV

“I’m sure… we would be forced to have people of different colours and different sexes and a trans person – but life doesn't have to be like that,” “We can be separate and different. Our generation made a lot of mistake, but not everybody in our generation was wrong and not everybody in this generation is right. A lot of people from our generation who are being called out have actually done a lot of good in their lives.” Queen's Brian May


Quote V

“At its core, Hanukkah recounts a story at the heart of the human spirit — one that is inherently Jewish and undeniably American,” Resident of The White House, Joe Biden

The pussification of corporate America is breathtaking.

CUSTOMER OUTRAGE Kyle Rittenhouse update – Best Buy & Levi Strauss face boycott for offering employee counseling over not guilty verdict

BEST Buy and Levi Strauss are facing a boycott from some customers for offering employee counseling over Kyle Rittenhouse's not guilty verdict.

Users took to social media to slam the companies after news broke that services were being offered to employees who felt distraught over the case.


No aftercare for the employers and employees of businesses destroyed by Antifa and BLM.

***SNORT*** Say goodbye to Sitting Bullshit.

Canada’s Indigenous health expert Carrie Bourassa fired when ancestry claims prove false

She’s Sitting Bullshit.

A Canadian medical researcher who rose to become the nation’s top voice on indigenous health has been fired from her government job and her university professorship — after suspicious colleagues investigated her increasingly fanciful claims of Native American heritage and learned she was a fraud.

Carrie Bourassa, a public health expert who served as scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, was suspended five days after the state-owned Canadian Broadcasting Corporation published a lengthy expose on her background.

Dining with the Jetsons? I don't think so.

People Furious at Robot Serving Pancakes at Denny’s
It's like dining with the Jetsons!

Imagine sitting down at your favorite breakfast restaurant only to be greeted by a robot, which brings your pancakes and sides instead of a human server.

Well, that’s not exactly what happened at one Denny’s location, but to hear the comments tell it, our robot overlords are taking over — and should be boycotted before they’re serving us pancakes and eggs all over the world.

TikTok user Miabellaceo posted a now-viral video showing a robot dubbed Janet delivering two plates of hashbrowns and eggs at an undisclosed Denny’s location. The simple three-tiered robot is basically a mobile cake plate that runs food for busy servers, and the video’s creator said in the comments that a real, flesh-and-blood server took their order and delivered their coffee.

Why should you give up something you have earned? "Fairness" I guess.

The United States is the only country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a group made of 36 of the world’s wealthiest nations, that doesn’t require employers to give workers annual paid leave, according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

That leaves 23 percent of Americans with no paid vacation and 22 percent without paid holidays. So as you can imagine, if an employee is given paid time off, they take it pretty seriously. No wonder that when the 25-year-old childless worker and the author of this post on r/AITA was asked by her 41-year-old colleague with kids to share her accumulated vacation days, the answer was negative.

“She wants me to give her 6 of my days. Her justification is that I’m childless and don’t need that many days,” the author explained. But after telling her she cannot give away her hard-earned days, the office drama ignited, so let’s read on below for how it ended.

I'm not surprised that the Nanny Karens of the world have harmed development of children.

Meanwhile, the verbal development quotient also dropped dramatically, from an average of 100 in 2018 to just below 90 in 2020, and around 70 in 2021.

The non-verbal development quotient also experienced a similar dip, from a mean score of around 105 in 2019, to 100 in 2020 and around 80 in 2021.

The study concluded that 'children born during the pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor, and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.'

'In addition,' the report adds, 'masks worn in public settings and in school or daycare settings may impact a range of early developing skills, such as attachment, facial processing, and socioemotional processing.'

Speaking of arrested development.

Numerous so-called institutions of “higher learning” have reportedly been offering free counseling and therapy to those emotionally unwell students who were allegedly traumatized by 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse not being sent to prison for life.

As previously reported, Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges on Nov. 19th based on comprehensive evidence showing that he’d opened fire in self-defense. The evidence included clear-cut video footage of three longtime criminals chasing after him during the 2020 Kenosha riots, reportedly with the intent to cause him harm.

You think we live in interesting times now, wait until the camps pop up.

We Morons know that if there is a problem the free market will correct it. The governments of the world can't force their wishes of a carbon free world until there is a solution. The following story gave me a big smirk.

The energy source that Germany moves to shut down, rescued the country from widespread blackouts in 2021.

Blackout News reports that more of Germany’s power is being produced by coal and nuclear fuels. In 2021, due to unfavorable weather conditions, wind and solar energy production plummeted in 2021 compared to 2020. “Germany’s power mix is getting dirtier.”

The figures were compiled by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen (Working Group for Energy Budgets) and based on the first 9 months of the year. Compared to 2020, the first nine months of 2021 saw a 3.3% increase in primary energy consumption – mainly due to economic reco0very.

Key points:

The 49-year-old stole the money while working as an account manager at the Tasmanian Veterinary Hospital between 2016 and 2019.

It was only after she was made redundant in 2019 that "anomalies were discovered in banking transactions".

A further investigation revealed the full extent of her theft.

Crown prosecutor Simone Wilson told the court that, over a period of three years and four months, Perri made 475 fraudulent transac
