The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"Rather than risking more inflation with trillions in new spending, this bill will cut the inflation taxes Americans are paying, lower the cost of health insurance and prescription drugs, and ensure our country invests in the energy security and climate change solutions we need to remain a global superpower through innovation rather than elimination," Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)


Yeah, right Senator.

Quote II

What was once a common word is now "derogatory". Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones pisses off midgets dwarfs little people.

What was intended to be a light-hearted joke has landed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in deep water with Little People of America, or “LPA” — regarded as the largest dwarfism support organization in the world.

The cause for contention stems from a comment Jones made from Cowboys training camp on Tuesday. Speaking with media members, Jones addressed the offseason passing of the team’s longtime Director of College and Pro Scouting, Larry Lacewell.

“Lace held court out here,” Jones said of Lacewell, who passed in May at age 85. “I’m going to get me somebody, a m*dget, to stand up there with me and dress him up like Lace and think Lace is still out here helping us. Look at the practice with us.”

You regulars know, The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM That's more than we can say about Uncle Sam and his cadre of incompetents.

The FBI led an investigation into Chinese cellphone company Huawei which revealed the company could intercept and disrupt private communications between the Department of Defense (DoD).
Huawei equipment was placed by the Chinese company on top of cell towers located in rural Midwest areas where US military bases were nearby.


The Huawei equipment would be able to capture DoD communications, including conversations initiated by the US Strategic Command, the government group that overlooks US nuclear weapons.

“This gets into some of the most sensitive things we do…It would impact our ability for essentially command and control with the nuclear triad,” a former FBI official told CNN of the discovery on Monday.

“If it is possible for that to be disrupted, then that is a very bad day,” the anonymous source added.

Da Fuq?

It's business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back.

The mullet peaked in the 80s but it's making a comeback. There's even annual competitions held by USA Mullet Championships.

According to their website, the mullet has been around since Ancient Greece. "Homer even described a haircut that sounds eerily familiar in The Iliad: 'their forelocks cropped, hair grown long at the backs', the website states.

Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit these kids are awesome. These are some of the finalists in the 2022 Kids Mullet Championship

The dried up hags on The View opened their blow holes too much.

Turning Point USA issued a scathing cease-and-desist letter to ABC News on Tuesday, calling for the Disney-owned company to “retract the defamatory statements” made earlier this week on “The View” or face legal action.

“The false statements of fact intentionally made during The View’s July 25th segment were unquestionably harmful to TPUSA’s reputation and brought the organization and its student affiliates into disrepute with the public, potential donors, and current and future business partners, posing a significant financial loss to the organization,” the letter said.

Mirror mirror on the tree. Who is the fairest bear of all?

Bears are inherently curious animals. They like to examine things and figure out what makes them tick and, more importantly, if they can get something good to eat from it. In truth, it's probably rather hard to surprise a bear with something they have never seen before. However, whoever set up this trail camera managed to find something that freaks out this black bear, its reflection. Yes, someone has hung a large bathroom mirror on a tree in the forest and set up a camera to film it. A little later, a giant bear comes wandering through, sniffing around, looking for food. And the bear encounters the mirror.

Instead, the bear turns to see the mirror and immediately freaks out, thinking another bear has managed to walk up to him. The animal directly attacks its reflection in the mirror and even goes around to the backside looking for the other bear. Eventually, it rips the whole mirror off the tree and stomps on it for good measure.
