The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“The first thing, number one is Black ownership. We must have a seat at the owner’s table … there are no Black voices in those meetings.” Former NFL coach Brian Flores

Old Mis. Hum. would say "Must?". The new Mis. Hum. doesn't give a flying fvck about the NFL. They have diluted the brand so much go ahead and play racial roulette.


Quote II

“First of all, President Biden could end this crisis and prevent a war with Russia by doing something very simple: guaranteeing that Ukraine will not become a member of NATO,” Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)

Quote III

“Climate change threatens America’s security and is altering the geostrategic landscape as we know i. For today’s soldiers operating in extreme temperature environments, fighting wildfires and supporting hurricane recovery, climate change isn’t a distant future, it is a reality.”Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said in a message included in the strategy

I wonder if the Resident of the White House's crack addled son has his money out of Ukraine?

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, said that Russia will launch an attack on the country on Wednesday.

Zelensky made the announcement on Facebook: Great people of a great country! There have been serious external and internal challenges in front of our country, which require responsibility, confidence and concrete actions from me and each of us.

We are intimidated by a great war and once again set the date of the military invasion. This is not the first time. But our state is stronger today than ever.

We strive for peace and want to solve all issues exclusively through negotiations. And Donbass, and Crimea will return to Ukraine. Only in a diplomatic way. We don’t stare at someone else’s, but we won’t give our own. We have an amazing army. Our boys have unique combat experience and modern weapons. This is already times stronger than the army eight years ago. We are confident in our armed forces, and our military too should feel our support, our togetherness and our unity. The basis of our army is the confidence of our own people and a strong economy.

Spying on a presidential campaign and the president? Never heard of it. And besides it would never happen.

Responding to this genuine bombshell Saturday, both former President Trump and his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., called for immediate consequences, particularly for Clinton.

The former president essentially accused Clinton of having committed treason, writing that in prior times, such a crime “would have been punishable by death.”

“This is a scandal far greater in scope and magnitude than Watergate and those who were involved in and knew about this spying operation should be subject to criminal prosecution. In a stronger period of time in our country, this crime would have been punishable by death. In addition, reparations should be paid to those in our country who have been damaged by this,” Trump said.

And not a G.D. thing will happen to these treasonous bastards.

The "F" word is not what you thought it meant. I seriously hope and pray that truckers and the "everyman" rises up to force blockades. Make it hurt.

I guess we should have expected this to happen. COVID is over. The pandemic is over. The arsenal to combat it or deal with its symptoms is substantial. It’s endemic. Natural immunity is a real thing. It has a 99-plus percent survival rate. It’s time to end ALL the mandates. No more masks. No insane and creepy obsession with penetrating the masses with the COVID vaccine. Enough. The truckers in Canada get it. They were cleared off the Ambassador Bridge during the Super Bowl yesterday, but they’re still honking in Ottawa.

In the US, there’s a freedom convoy revving up here as well. The destination being Washington DC. This is about freedom and civil rights. The Left cannot manufacture anymore COVID panic porn. We’re all desensitized. We’re also sick of it. Most if not all the panic scenarios never came to fruition. Most if not all the so-called advice was science fiction. So, with no place to go, the Left says the quiet part out loud regarding their true agenda. They’re attacking freedom. It’s their new “F” word (via CBC):

The state broadcaster is now trying to stigmatize the word "freedom" and suggest it is racist to proclaim it.

Threat? You craven little puke.

Trudeau Unleashes 'Emergency Powers Act', Threatens Crowd-Funding Platforms With "Terrorist-Financing" For Protesters

Update (1715ET): As expected, Canadian PM Trudeau invoked sweeping emergency police powers Monday in his latest attempt to stamp out dissent from citizens protesting vaccine mandates and other COVID restrictions.

“This is not a peaceful protest,” the Canadian leader told reporters in Ottawa alongside top cabinet officials. "The federal government is stepping in because local police authorities have had difficulty enforcing the law," he said.

“This is about keeping Canadians safe, protecting people’s jobs and restoring confidence in our institutions.”

Enacting the new never-before-used law gives Trudeau, in effect, martial law control over everything and everyone; and not all of Canada is behind him...

I guess there was some NFL game yesterday called the Super Bowl. I spent my time reading a book and listening to tunes on Spotify. The NFL is dead do to me.

Rapper Eminem knelt during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show despite alleged objections from NFL officials. According to a report from PuckNews, which published some behind-the-scenes details about the halftime show, Eminem wanted to take a knee in support of Colin Kaepernick and informed the NFL of his plans, but the league asked him not to. He did it anyway, however, while the league has denied making any objections. The Detroit-based rapper performed at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige.
According to the report, Dr. Dre went back and forth with league officials about the lyrics and content of the songs that he could perform onstage. The league reportedly did not want Dre, Eminem and other artists to focus on divisive culture war issues after a rebound in ratings over the past season. NFL ratings had been declining for years before jumping 17% in the 2021/2022 season.


Rappers? And you thought you wouldn't have problems?


Hmmm, yes, I see the similarity. ////

Moar NFL news and the absurdity of racial healing. With an emphasis on tokenism.

The efforts of leftists to destroy the world of sports took another Great Leap Forward last week with the news that former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores filed a class-action suit against the NFL and all 32 NFL teams for racial discrimination. Flores was fired in January after three seasons with the Dolphins, and he recently interviewed for the New York Giants head coaching job that instead went to Brian Daboll.

Flores’ lawsuit is an unhinged, 58-page rant that focuses more on topics like professional football history and George Floyd rather than Flores’ specific allegations because his allegations are preposterous. Flores says the NFL “remains rife with racism” when it comes to hiring and retaining black coaches, and that the league “is managed much like a plantation,” yet he has been employed as an NFL coach for the past 14 years, and made upwards of $3 million per season as the Dolphins head coach.

Sure has the odor of appearance of impropriety.

On Feb. 11, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel sold 10,000 shares of company stock, valued at $1.8 million in total. By the following day, Bancel’s Twitter account, had disappeared without warning.

Observers on Twitter found the relationship between these moves suspicious. In reality, the sale was part of Bancel’s previously-made plans to sell stock over time. Bancel last modified these stock-sale plans in May 2021. The sale is a tiny part of his holdings. At this rate it would take Bancel 16 years to sell all of his shares.


So he modified his stock sale plan in May 2021, hmmmm I wonder what was going on between May 2021 and February 2022? Just thinking out loud is all.

So the Fabulous Mrs. Mis. Hum. and I went grocery shopping this afternoon. A couple of things were noticeable. Store brand whole wheat bread is now over $2.00 a loaf. It had been a wonderful $1.66 loaf. Gas is now running at around $3.459 a gallon. Thanks Brandon.

Russia and Asia emerge as the smart power players.

Asia goes nuclear while Europe goes bust


During the past few decades, a quiet but all the more important divergence has begun to evolve between Asia und Europe: their respective attitudes towards climate change and nuclear energy. In their crusade against what they perceive as a looming climate catastrophe, most European nations are focusing on reducing carbon emissions. Among them, Germany has taken the lead. Its first step was to scrap its fleet of nuclear power stations. Moreover, coal-fired plants are being decommissioned one after another even before the nuclear decommissioning is completed. The ultimate goal is a net zero society exclusively powered by renewables, mainly solar and wind.

It’s a green’s dream that is slowly morphing into a nightmare for ordinary people.


Let Europe freeze. I really don't care anymore. We were an energy exporting country before Oatmeal brains took over.

Unlike rap artists, Barry Manilow's voice isn't that bad.

(NEWSER) – Canada has brought out the police in force to try to disburse protesters angry over COVID mandates. New Zealand is trying a different tactic for its copycat protesters: Barry Manilow's greatest hits. The government has been blasting songs such as "Mandy" and "Could It Be Magic" on a 15-minute loop, reports the BBC. They threw in the "Macarena" for good measure. The protesters' response? They began blaring "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twister Sister, per the AP.

The New Zealand protesters turned up earlier in the week, borrowing the "Convoy for Freedom" theme of the demonstrators in Ottawa. As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, police in the capital of Wellington responded aggressively on Thursday, which led to physical confrontations that went viral on social media. Police changed tactics after that, and Parliament Speaker Trevor Mallard came up with the Manilow idea after another tactic—dousing the protesters with sprinklers—didn't have much of an effect.

Here, pull my finger. The Genius Award Winner.

FEBRUARY 11--A Utah motorist with 11 fingers was arrested following a traffic stop Wednesday evening, according to a court filing.

The spare digit was not on one of Victor Chavez-Zuniga’s hands, but rather in the 27-year-old’s wallet, where it was “beginning to turn green and the fingernail appeared decayed.”

Chavez-Zuniga was driving about two miles from his residence in Orem, a city about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, when a cop pulled him over around 10 PM for a broken headlight.

When a computer check turned up “several active warrants,” Chavez-Zuniga was handcuffed and placed in custody. Two of the warrants stemmed from Chavez-Zuniga’s failure to appear in court for a hearing related to a prior felony fraud conviction.
