The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“We continue to urge the administration to promptly reimburse all the hospitals that were affected by these unlawful cuts in previous years and to ensure the remainder of the hospital field is not penalized for their prior unlawful policy, especially as hospitals and health systems continue to deal with rising costs for supplies, equipment, drugs and labor,” she said. AHA General Counsel and Secretary Melinda Hatton

Quote II

“I still tease him that when he got blown out by Alabama in that national championship game, I took all the heat off him because I called a beauty queen beautiful. I was the villain that night in the eyes of many, especially the woke journalists with some of the papers around the country,” Sportscaster Brent Musburger

Quote III

“If there were a Republican that was not an election denier, that I aligned with on all the issues, I would be thrilled. Show me a Republican who is not an election denier and I will endorse them.” Mesa Arizona Mayor John Giles


He would rather support a racist.

Speaking of racists


Quote IV

“To my constituents — Serving you has been a privilege and one that I don’t give up lightly. You are my neighbors, my friends, and the reason for this service. … I hope you stay engaged and continue to fight for your fair share of the city’s resources. It’s hard to say goodbye, but please know that I was in this fight for you.” Nury Martinez, LA City Council Member

The following story has a graphic photo-You have been warned.


We treat teenagers who puke up their food because they are too fat. Teenagers who think they are the opposite gender? Well there's treatment for that. Frankenpenis.

The phrase "moral panic" refers to a fear-driven mass overreaction to a phenomenon that is either false or minor. Witch hunts are the usual manifestation of a moral panic. There are no witches (well, technically not true, at least these days, but the witches didn't poison the well), so to freak out and persecute women because they might be a witch is a classic example of moral panic. The Satanic abuse craze of the 1990s is another. Again: a "moral panic" ensues when there is a mass freakout over something that doesn't exist, or is extremely minor and in no way justifies the size and intensity of the reaction.

The other day, I saw on Twitter someone saying that they are a good liberal and all that, but they are really worried about what they're seeing regarding the emerging culture of the medical and teaching professions encouraging children to transition to the opposite sex. "But," said this person, "I don't want to surrender to a moral panic."

No word if Amber Rose Barnes mistook these critters for tasty venison. Wild horses slaughtered.

The US Forest Service is investigating an incident where 15 horses were shot and left for dead near the northern Arizona town of Alpine.

The horses in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest were found with bullet wounds in their faces, necks, abdomens, and between their eyes, according to wildlife activists.

‘This hateful massacre is incomprehensible and the killer or killers must be brought to full justice,’ said Simone Netherlands, President of the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group.

There are great jobs out there without a college degree. We all suspected this but now we know, "New Study Finds American College Students Extremely Biased and Out of Touch"

Earlier this week, I came across a fascinating and harrowing demographic report from the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology, analyzing “elite” college students’ political biases.

It explains that college campuses are left-wing — shocker, I know — but moreover, it exposes what happens when insular college students hold absurdly unrepresentative viewpoints.

Across dozens of pages, the report unveils that these students live for several years on an island where religion is shunned, and race somehow correlates directly with political ideology. The gender gap is nearly five times larger than in the general population — as more men wisely eschew college.

And this matters. Remember, despite their naiveté and limited life experience, college students and recent graduates, unfortunately, have an outsized effect on politics.

They frequently work on and eventually lead political campaigns, so if collegians or graduate students tend to be more liberal, Democrat and Republican campaigns are staffed by people more left-leaning than their constituents.

Why tell the truth? It doesn't help the narrative one bit.

EXCLUSIVE: Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was told that the photographer who captured a clash between Border Patrol agents and Haitian migrants in Del Rio had said that the incident was being misconstrued – hours before Mayorkas joined a White House press conference where he didn’t challenge the false narrative.

The Sept. 24, 2021 email, obtained by the Heritage Foundation via a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA), shines light onto internal deliberations surrounding the controversy in Del Rio, Texas, where Democrats and the White House pushed a narrative that migrants had been "whipped" or "strapped" by Border Patrol agents despite it being quickly debunked.

First of all, I'm confused why wait staff receive tips and the kitchen staff doesn't. I don't care if my service is the best I've ever had but the food sucks. Now that I have that off my fingers.

TikTok has allowed people to bitch just about everything, including tipping. What does the Horde say? Server Says “Foreign” Table Refused to Tip Her Because They Don’t in Their Home Country

She says in the video: "So today my table only tipped me $2 on a $122 because they're from Germany and they don't tip there, right?" The TikToker then moves within the screen of the TikTok to show the green-screened check behind her.

"So, this is the check, guys. What does this look like to you? Let me zoom in."

She zooms in on the check to show the total amount of money written into the receipt. "First of all, I hate when people just write in the total and make you do the math to figure out what the tip is. But anyways, is this $125 or $7.25? Because it kinda looks like a seven, right?"

Then again maybe that's all she deserved................

Perhaps USA Today columnist Rex Huppke and Yahoo! Sports writer Ryan Young should stop the circle jerk and put on their big-boy pants.

Liberal journalists erupted that Troy Aikman was sexist after the "Monday Night Football" commentator remarked on a controversial penalty that it was time to "take the dresses off" with regard to excessive roughing-the-passer calls.

During Monday’s Kansas City Chiefs-Las Vegas Raiders game, Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones appeared to sack Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, forcing a fumble and recovering the ball. But, because Jones landed on Carr as he made the play, officials threw a flag for roughing the passer.

"I hope that the competition committee looks at this during the set of meetings, and we take the dresses off," Aikman said on ESPN, seemingly upset by the call.

I don't listen to Kanye West's music. Really don't follow him much. But, the last time I checked saying something "offensive" was not criminal. If the "Big Guys" can do this to Kanye West. What chance do us ordinary people stand? The Social Credit Score has come to fruition.

A massive bank has debanked another controversial political figure.
Conservative influencer Candace Owens posted an image of a letter allegedly sent by JP Morgan Chase bank to Kanye West which informed him his company’s bank accounts will be closed in late November.


The letter, with the subject line “IMPORTANT: Closing of Our Banking Relationship” gave no explanation or reasoning behind the censorship of the prominent rapper.

“Earlier today I learned that @kanyewest was officially kicked out of JP Morgan Chase bank. I was told there was no official reason given, but they sent this letter as well to confirm that he has until late November to find another place for the Yeezy empire to bank,” Owens stated on Twitter.

On the bright side, it wasn't on his company expense account. Genius
Award Winner.

Last December, David Chapin was visiting the Miami area for a sailing regatta when someone recommended that he go to Playmates strip club, an adult entertainment joint tucked between a storage facility and a recording studio off Bird Road in Coral Gables. Around 8 p.m., he headed to the club to enjoy a drink and a few dances before the sailing event the next day.

Chapin recalls that he sat down at a bar inside the full-nudity club, next to a scantily dressed exotic dancer, and ordered a cocktail. He claims she invited him to a "VIP" room in the back, where she promised a dance and cocaine to keep the party going. He remembers following her.

New York changes gun buyback after seller gets $21,000 for 3D-printed parts
Participant used a 3D printer to make firearm parts in bulk that he then exchanged for gift cards

The attorney general of New York has changed the rules of a state gun buyback program, after a participant exploited the system by using a 3D printer to make firearm parts in bulk that he then exchanged for $21,000 in gift cards.

The seller, who identified himself by a pseudonym, said he traveled from West Virginia to a gun buyback on 27 August in Utica, New York, to take advantage of a loophole in the program – and to demonstrate that buybacks are futile in an era of printable weapons.

At the buyback, the seller turned in 60 printed auto sears, small devices that can convert firearms into fully automatic weapons. Under the rules of the buyback, hosted by the office of the attorney general, Letitia James, and city police, that entitled him to $350 for each of the printed parts, including a $100 premium, since they were deemed “ghost guns” lacking serial numbers.
