The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Like all of these big headliners across the world, they all have to start somewhere. They all played an independent festival somewhere in their early career. It's an exciting place to be to get to experience up-and-coming talents while they're on the way up.” DJ and festival co-founder Amy Moffat


Quote II

“The whole aim of this agenda is: Let’s do something real and tangible that is going to protect kids online and get power back to parents,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO)


Quote III

"I don't believe a police report was done. We normally just suspend. If a parent wants to press charges, they can with the police. We're not going to double-whammy a kid where they are suspended and then police charges as well." Superintendent Triantafillos Parlapanides

Now the unicorn's price is coming down.

More quickly than seemed possible a few months ago, sticker prices for electric vehicles are falling closer to the point at which they could soon be on a par with gasoline cars.

Increased competition, government incentives and falling prices for lithium and other battery materials are making electric vehicles noticeably more affordable. The tipping point when electric vehicles become as cheap or cheaper than cars with internal combustion engines could arrive this year for some mass market models and is already the case for some luxury vehicles.

Prices are likely to continue trending lower as Tesla, General Motors, Ford Motor and their battery suppliers ramp up new factories, reaping the cost savings that come from mass production. New electric vehicles from companies like Volkswagen, Nissan and Hyundai will add to competitive pressure.

The battery-powered version of GM’s Equinox crossover, for example, will start around $30,000 when it arrives this fall, the carmaker has said. That is $3,400 more than the least expensive gasoline-fueled Equinox. But factoring in government incentives, the electric Equinox should be cheaper. Like all electric vehicles, the car will need less maintenance, and the electricity to power it will cost less than the gasoline used by its combustion engine equivalent.

I guess there was something called The Super Bowl on this afternoon. Everythin Uncles Sam & the NFL touches has to be "Woke".

The U.S. Navy quietly ditched a team of aviators scheduled to conduct a traditional flyover before Super Bowl LVII and replaced it with a group of all female aviators, Military.com reported Friday.

A final roster first announced Thursday on Good Morning America featured 11 female pilots and flight officers out of a total of 16 aviators, seven of which are scheduled to perform the spectacle kicking off Sunday’s big game, according to Military.com. However, the original group of 15 flight officers featured three women, according to a press release dated Jan. 27, and were presented as a commemoration of 50 years of female participation in the Navy’s aviation program.


“The flyover also commemorates 50 years of women flying in the U.S. Navy. In 1973 the first eight women began flight school in Pensacola, Fla., and one year later six of those eight women, titled “The First Six,” earned their Wings of Gold,” the press release stated. “Since then, women have of the served, operated and led at every level of Naval Aviation.”


Speaking of the Super Bowl. Lefties are up in tofu about this ad.

The popularity of Fox News host Greg Gutfeld has left-wingers weeping and gnashing their teeth as the “new king of late night comedy” will be featured in an ad during Sunday’s Super Bowl, typically the most-watched television event of the year.

One of those who is throwing a temper tantrum over the “Gutfeld!” commercial, one of many that will be run by Fox as is customary for whichever network broadcasts the big game to promote their own content with “house” ads, is Lizz Winstead, the co-creator of “The Daily Show,” the popular Comedy Central program that mixes Democratic party talking points with comedic content into a cocktail of pure stupidity served up by the likes of Jon Stewart and Trevor Noah.
