The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“In a luxury industry, I think that makes sense. Like, I would never go to a steakhouse expecting McDonald’s prices. The difference here is that housing is, in my personal opinion, a basic human right.” Grace Pinegar


Quote II

“When politicians are out there saying, ‘Let’s get rid of all cars using gasoline,’ do they understand this?”Toyota President Akio Toyoda

Quote III

“Honey baby. This ain’t it. Because I have an Ivy League degree and I’m a sitting state senator. It’s not about what I’m wearing. It’s not about what I’m doing. They won’t respect me regardless,Rhode Island State Sen. Tiara Mack


Quote IV

President Joe Biden is a genuinely good man, but he has yet been unable to break through our national malady of denial, deceit, and distrust. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)

I completely disagree with that premise and therefore most of his article at The Atlantic is babbling Bull Shit.

Diversity much? Obviously not.

I was at Glastonbury last month, waiting for Diana Ross, when I spotted a grown man queuing up for somewhere called The Milk Stand. He propped his elbow against the bar, rubbed his goatee and went, “Just a carton of milk for me please, mate.” It was 28 degrees outside. And just as the opening chords of “I'm Coming Out” begun, I could see him out the corner of my eye, guzzling milk, little streams of white liquid cascading down his chin. And I thought: 'Sorry? Are you okay?

Some people are too stupid to be allowed out in public.

Radically left-wing Just Stop Oil demonstrators glued themselves to Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper painting in protest of oil and other fossil fuels, choosing to attack the painting of Jesus Christ and his disciples because it was created with oil-based paint.

See Quote I, perhaps she can live here.

RV Life: Stay Off-Grid Longer by Creating Water From Air

Home » Camper & RV » RV Life: Stay Off-Grid Longer by Creating Water From Air
The 2023 Living Vehicle luxury trailer can make water from air. Stay off-grid longer and never go thirsty again.

This new travel trailer lets you stay off of the grid for longer than ever before. The latest from Living Vehicle overcomes a serious boondocking challenge by being the first vehicle — trailer or not — to come with a new system that lets you capture potable water right from the air.

'Carry On' or 'Almost Cut My Hair'. A funny thing happens when your tunes aren't on Spotify. No income.

Jeez, just another reason why everyday Americans loathe government.

For decades, Judy and Ed Craine parked their car in the driveway in front of their San Francisco home. Parking in the Golden City can be tricky with its steep hills and busy streets, and the Craines say they were lucky to have a spot that's all their own for the past 36 years.

That is, until they received a $1,542 fine for parking on their own property -- with the threat of a $250-per-day fee if they didn't get the car off their carpad.

The Craines told ABC-affiliate KGO-TV that the San Francisco Planning Department is enforcing a decades-old section of code that bans motor vehicles of all kinds from being parked on a carpad or setback in front of a house unless it's accompanied by a garage or cover.
