The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“I do want to thank the South Fulton police and the staff of officers for their courteous and professional service throughout the day,” South Fulton, Georgia Mayor Khalid Kamau


Quote II

"Whilst I can't condone people taking action of this nature - putting themselves at risk by standing in the middle of the road and painting symbols that may be more unsettling than humorous for members of our community, it does highlight how urgent the need for action from the county council and highways is." Cllr Layfield, of the Community Independents


Quote III

"Here’s what it requires, Maria. It requires a president that is disciplined, a president that is focused,” he said. “You can’t get distracted on this. These people are not going to voluntarily give up the power that they have accumulated over many decades of neglect. I have shown in Florida the ability to get the job done.” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)

The one thing that can be said for the Kung Flu prick: It isn't as safe as mother's milk. And once again I'm not surprised by this news.


A sudden increase in Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS)—a rare and potentially fatal skin disorder—may be triggered by COVID-19, increased vaccination rates, or a lowered threshold caused by vaccines or previous infection, according to a large case series recently published in Burns.


Researchers with the burns unit at Concord Repatriation General Hospital in Australia saw two to four cases of SJS, or toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), per year prior to COVID-19. In the first six months of 2022 alone, the same burn center observed a sevenfold rise in cases.

Of the 14 reported cases, five patients had COVID-19 a month before developing SJS/TEN, and three of 14 patients received a COVID-19 vaccine one month prior. Not a single case of SJS/TEN was reported in an unvaccinated individual.

Researchers said the rarity of the condition and presence of medications known to trigger the disease make the link difficult to prove, but the rapid rise in cases since the beginning of the pandemic and vaccine rollout is “alarming.”

SJS/TEN is a severe hypersensitivity condition where the skin develops rashes, blisters, and peels forming painful areas that resemble a severe hot water burn. Mucous membranes, including the eyes, genitalia, and mouth, are often affected or severely damaged, leading to sepsis, pneumonia, infection, or death.

Put your money into a lawsuit. I think if one is "innocent" as Ray Epps is claiming the lawsuit would have been filed months ago.

Ray Epps is Suing.

Self-declared January 6th “orchestrator” Ray Epps is planning to sue Fox News for defamation, demanding an on-air apology and a retraction of former primetime host Tucker Carlson‘s claims that Epps may have been working for federal law enforcement at the time of the 2021 “mostly peaceful protest” at the U.S. Capitol. “We informed Fox in March that if they did not issue a formal on-air apology that we would pursue all available avenues to protect the Eppses’ rights… [t]hat remains our intent,” told Michael Teter, Epps’s legal counsel, to The New York Times.


The depositions would be a wonderful show. The trial would be icing on the cake.

How much do you need to get by comfortably? What point are you rich? These answers may or may not surprise you. I'll be honest, I was surprised. I guess I'm a prisoner of poverty.

The dollar really doesn’t go as far as it used to.

The average American feels they need to rake in $233,000 annually to live in financial comfort, according to a new survey by YouGov for Bankrate that polled over 2,500 people. That’s 310% more than the 2021 paycheck for the average full-time worker—$75,203, per the Census Bureau.

And they think they need to earn twice that to feel wealthy—$483,000. But they would need to save and invest strategically to actually build wealth; respondents to Charles Schwab’s 2023 Modern Wealth Survey, released last month, said the minimum net worth they’d need to be rich is $2.2 million. The eye-popping figures are perhaps no surprise considering that an unstable economy rife with recession fears and layoffs has made many Bankrate respondents feel financially insecure.

Inflation was the number one roadblock respondents cited for their lack of financial security; 63% of them said it’s keept them from a comfortable financial place. They also pointed to the current “economic environment,” their lack of sufficient emergency and retirement savings, and rising interest rates.

Too big to fail? Never! Big banking has gone "Woke" in the UK. When does it hit our shores?

WEAPONIZED BANKING: Big UK Bank Freezes Nigel Farage’s Accounts

British banks are directly interfering with Nigel Farage’s private accounts. According to Farage, he is being frozen out of his accounts and is unable to engage in banking activities in the United Kingdom.

Farage is a British politician who served as a member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2020 representing several populist conservative parties like the United Kingdom Independence Party and the Brexit Party, with the overarching goal of getting Britain out of the European Union.
