The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“It was supposed to be all fun and games and obviously it hasn’t turned out that way. If I offended anybody, it was not the case, it was just friends having fun. As I said, if I offended anybody in any way, shape or form, I’m sorry. It was not intended to be that way.” Tiger Woods


Quote II

“Any vote coming from the South Side for somebody not named Lightfoot is a vote for Chuy Garcia or Paul Vallas. If you want them controlling your fate and your destiny, then stay home. Then don’t vote. But we’ve got to do better.” Chicago Mayor Lightfoot


Quote III

"I am very disappointed. I feel this is an incredibly harmful policy that doesn’t add anything other than punitive measures." Culver City council member Yasmin-Imani McMorrin


Unfortunately Ms. McMorrin didn't provide her home address during her interview.

It, doesn't appear to be playing with a full deck.
A well-known transgender horror author who was among the signers of a letter decrying the New York Times’ “biased” reporting on trans issues said she wants to slit J.K. Rowling’s throat.

Gretchen Felker-Martin called out several writers she said were transphobic — including “Harry Potter” author Rowling — on Feb. 12.

“If they all had one throat, man,” she added in the since-deleted tweet.

He likes his bread buttered. If he doesn't have the balls or stamina to fight Ticket Master, why in the hell would he run for POTUS a 3rd time? Oh yes, follow the money.

Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders has made a career from denouncing capitalism, but he may be a hypocrite.

The 81-year-old senator, with a net worth of $3 million, spoke to anchor Margaret Brennan on the CBS Sunday show “Face The Nation” where she confronted him on his selling tickets for $95 to an event promoting his book which decries capitalism.

“Tickets for your tour apparently are selling for $95 on Ticketmaster, which is accused of anti-competitive behavior. You know that some of your [fellow] Democrats are criticizing them. Aren’t you benefiting from the same system you’re trying to dismantle?” she said.

Including the $16 Ticketmaster surcharge the tickets are $111 and include a copy of his book, hilariously titled “It’s Okay to Be Angry About Capitalism.”

“Those decisions are made totally by the publisher and the bookseller,” the senator said. “I think there’s one case where in one place here in Washington, Politics and Prose, an independent bookstore charging some tickets. Most of them, I think are 40 dollars, 50 dollars, and you get a book as well. So if you want to come, you’re going to have to pay 40 bucks, I’ll throw in the book for free. And we’re doing a number of free events. But I don’t make a nickel out of these things.”

Soon little campers, soon. You'll be able to have a verified check mark by your Meta social media account. For a price.

In an Instagram story and on Facebook, Zuckerberg wrote the company will roll out Meta Verified in Australia and New Zealand this week, and “more countries soon.”

The program costs $11.99 a month for web use and $14.99 a month for use on iOS products.

Meta Verified allows users to verify their accounts “with a government ID” and earn a blue badge, which the company currently gives out to well-known individuals for free, and the subscription service will give them extra protection against impersonation accounts and direct access to customer support, Zuckerberg said.

I know when I would pull a handgun. This is not the time. Genius Award Winner.


An Altamonte Springs woman has been arrested after police say she pulled a gun in a McDonald's drive-thru.

According to a police affidavit, 24-year-old Amari Hendricks is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery and resisting arrest.

Police say officers were called on Feb. 16 to the McDonald's on South State Route 434 for a report of a woman with a gun in her hand.

Officers detained Hendricks and spoke with employees.

"There is an allegation of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, without the intent to kill," a judge said.
