The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“I have the right to breathe fresh air in my home. I’m not talking about if I go to someone else’s house or a place people go to smoke pot. They have the freedom to do whatever. I just do not want to be invaded in my own home.” Josefa Ippolito-Shepherd


Quote II

"....there is no amount of money that can truly compensate for her injuries." Bradley Martin KC

She is an intellectually dishonest Congresscritter. For years the GOP had a pro-life plank in their platform and raised money for politicians to get Roe vs. Wade overturned. Now we are to blame. Fuck you you stupid bint. Another reason to never give money to the RNC.

U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) blamed the overturning of Roe v. Wade for the Republican party’s lackluster midterm showing during a recent appearance on Meet the Press. “It’s the reason we didn’t get more of a majority. We could have had a two dozen seat majority, but we don’t. This was an issue top of mind for swing voters,” Mace told NBC’s Chuck Todd.
The South Carolina Republican went on to claim that the issue will continue to hurt the GOP in 2024. “When you’re looking ahead to ’24, going to the extremes and digging in there isn’t going to work for most people,” Mace said.

Losing your job sucks. No matter how it is done. And to be honest with you, I do not have a better idea when it comes to laying off 12,000 employees.

Jeremy Joslin, a 20-year Google engineer, said being laid off via email was a "slap in the face."

"It's as if I dropped off the grid and they have to piece together any knowledge I took," he added.

Other ex-Googlers have criticized the abrupt and impersonal nature of their terminations.

Lori Lightfoot Blames Prosecutor Kim Foxx for Chicago Crime: ‘Handing Out Certificates of Innocence Like Candy’

Chicago’s embattled Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot has blamed Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx for the city’s out-of-control crime rates.

Incumbent Lori Lightfoot currently finds herself in third place in the mayoral race, according to the polls.

The election is at the end of February and if no candidate gets 50% of the vote, the top two will face off in a runoff election that will be held on April 4, 2023.

This couple is trying to make a difference.

MINNEAPOLIS -- For almost 25 years, Bishop Larry Cook and his wife, Sharon, have been trying to make a positive impact on the North Minneapolis community from their church, Real Believers Faith Center.

"It's just been remarkable to be here and serve, to see lives changed. That's what we do," said Larry Cook.

But it hasn't been easy. The orange and yellow dots mark all the reports of shootings or shots fired in Minneapolis over the past year. The gas station next to their church is completely covered in colors.

"We just never would go over there. We wanted to but it was just too much going on over there. I didn't want to be solicited for drugs," said Sharon Cook.

It got to the point where the shootings started to impact the church, so Larry Cook confronted the drug dealers before a bible study.

"'If you want us to leave, you need to buy it. You don't own it,' It was just very, very contentious. So my husband just looked at them and said 'I will buy it,'" said Sharon Cook.


I wonder how long it will take the Cooks to realize that the odorous government rules and regs are just as bad as the thugs.

Doctors happily assist with suicide. Marijuana is legal. But now booze is a no-no. Canada, the Nanny State.

New alcohol guidelines recommending that Canadians limit themselves to just two drinks a week – and ideally cut alcohol altogether – have prompted intense debate over risk versus enjoyment in a country where the vast majority of adults regularly consume alcohol.

The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) this week called for a substantial reduction in consumption, warning that seemingly moderate drinking poses a number of serious health risks, including cancer, heart disease and stroke.

The new guidelines, funded by Health Canada, represent a dramatic shift from previous recommendations issued in 2011, when Canadians were told that low-risk consumption meant no more than 10 drinks a week for women and 15 drinks a week for men.

We really are governed by a bunch of fvcking stupid people.

The Department of Defense awarded a multi-year grant worth $3 million to EcoHealth Alliance – the company at the center of the Wuhan lab leak theory.

Starting on Dec. 12, 2022, and ending on Dec. 11, 2025, the Department of Defense will give $3 million in funding to EcoHealth Alliance, according to USA Spending – the official source for spending data for the U.S. government.

EcoHealth Alliance will utilize the multi-million-dollar grant to "reduce the threat of viral spillover from wildlife in the Philippines."

It's starting. The slippery slope from choice to forced consumption.

House crickets allowed as food in EU
A European Commission ruling permits the insects in defatted and powdered form to now be added to pizza and pasta-based products
House crickets allowed as food in EU

Partially defatted and powdered house crickets will officially be able to find their way to EU citizens’ tables starting on January 24. This comes thanks to a European Commission ruling passed earlier this month.

As per the decision, which cited the scientific opinion of the European Food Safety Authority, the additive is safe to use in a whole range of products, including but not limited to cereal bars, biscuits, pizza, pasta-based products, and whey powder.

We will see if Arizona is red, purple or blue. Please pass the buttered popcorn.

Democratic Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego will run for Senate, he announced Monday, setting up a general election showdown with Independent Kyrsten Sinema.

Gallego, a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, blasted Sinema throughout the 117th Congress for her opposition to various left-wing priorities. He floated a primary challenge to the freshman senator, but she left the Democratic Party in December to ensure that she would automatically advance to the general election.

On this day: 23 Jan 1978
American musician and songwriter Terry Kath, best known as the original guitarist, and founding members of the rock band Chicago accidentally shot himself dead. After a party at roadie and band technician Don Johnson's home in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California, Kath picked up a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and, leaning back in a chair, said to Johnson, "Don't worry about it ... look, the clip is not even in it." To satisfy Johnson's concerns, Kath showed the empty magazine to Johnson. Kath then replaced the magazine in the gun, put the gun to his temple and pulled the trigger. Apparently unbeknownst to Kath, however, there was still one round in the chamber, and he died instantly from the gunshot via thisdayinmusic.com
