The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“The biggest thing that got him was Jon had called Roger Goodell a female body part that wasn’t becoming. I guess he made some bad comments about the Glazers, but you have to realize he had just been fired by the Bucs and he thought he was on private e-mails. A lot of people when they’re fired say bad things.” Former NFL Coach John Gruden’s agent Bob LaMonte


Quote II

“Dick Cheney is a war criminal..lied to the American people and brought nothing but death and destruction to Iraq ….Cheney’s demon seed will be destroyed at the polls by the good folks in Wyoming… and then we will be done with them,” Steve Bannon


Quote III

“We got our ass kicked. It’s just that simple. Looks to me like we got rinky-doo’d. That’s a Louisiana word for ‘screwed.’ And we got our ass kicked. That’s the way my people back home see it,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA)

What else is new? Leftists only like certain SCOTUS decisions.

A state with a large presence of agricultural properties has adopted a law giving 'trespassers' a right to access those lands while speaking to workers there, despite a Supreme Court precedent that struck down that very strategy in another state.

It is Colorado that adopted recently an Agricultural Workers' Rights law that requires those landowners to provide access to those visitors, or "service providers" such as union officials or counselors, who want to contact their workers on site.

Meet Jonah Michael. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

It is - quite literally - a whale of a story.

Michael Packard was diving for lobster off the Cape Cod coast in Massachusetts when he was hit by what felt like a 100-tonne lorry.

Being 45ft beneath the waves, the juggernaut object was not a motor vehicle at all however - but one of the largest living creatures known on the face of the planet.

Humpback whales are among the biggest beasts on earth alongside their cousins the blue whale and have been known to eat up to 1.4 metric tons of small fish or krill.

So when Michael was gulped by of the friendly giants in June of last year, his adult male body would have barely touched the sides of its mouth.
