The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“But he’s [Fauci] a rich man, his wealth increased by 30 percent during the pandemic, I think he ought to pay for his own security detail and his own legal defense if he needs one.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)


Quote II

“If you all want to be strip-searched, you know, for substances before you go into the White House, that’s something that you should work with the Secret Service to see if they can accommodate,” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA)


Quote III

“It is critical that the American people know that their elected leaders are putting the public first not looking for ways to line their own pockets." Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)


I damn near spit my drink out when I read this quote.

Louisiana legislature displays common sense with backbone.

On Tuesday, the Louisiana state legislature voted to override Governor John Bel Edwards’ (D-La.) veto of a bill that would ban surgeries and other procedures that attempt to “transition” minors to the opposite gender.

As reported by Breitbart, the law was sponsored by State Representative Gabe Firment (R-La.), who said that the law would forbid doctors from “prescribing hormone therapy and puberty blockers to minors, and from administering gender-transition surgical procedures.” The bill was passed in June but vetoed by Edwards.

The veto override passed in the Louisiana House of Representatives by a landslide 75-23 margin before it also passed in the State Senate. Firment pointed out that if the veto override did not pass, and such transgender operations were allowed to continue in the state, Louisiana could see an influx of minors from other states seeking the procedures that had been outlawed by Louisiana’s southern neighbors.

Left wing sites are up in arms. My respect for the In-N-Out business model continues to grow.

In-N-Out Burger is once again a flashpoint in the covid mask debate
The fast food chain told employees in five states they need a doctor's note to wear a mask at work

Smiles over safety? The evidence says otherwise Karen.

Moar Kung Flu news....... Jeez, you mean people are meant to be kept in isolation without repercussions.

As heavy drinking rose during the COVID-19 pandemic, deaths and hospitalizations for liver disease also jumped, according to WSU research

"Conservative" Pundit Dan Bongino is wrong about his beloved Secret Service.

“Listen, I love the Secret Service, OK? It’s the reverse 80/20 rule. You know the 80/20 rule? Twenty-percent of the people do 80 percent of the work. My experience in the Secret Service is 80 percent of the guys are great and 20 percent, you know, not terrible, but not so much,


Surprised we didn't see Sean Hannity jacking off and saying they were "All great Americans."


The Secret Service is as sleazy and disgusting as the FBI.

The U.S. taxpayer-funded Secret Service has reportedly “destroyed” evidence in the agency’s “investigation” into the bag of cocaine found in Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House.

A member of Congress revealed the Secret Service destroyed the cocaine and the bag it was found in, along with any fingerprints and DNA evidence.

According to Newsmax, Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) said it is now impossible to further examine the evidence after the federal security service destroyed it.

There is color blindness. There is snow blindness. I bring you the next phase of mental illness. Time Blindness. Yes boys and girls and everything in between Time Blindness.


In case you missed it in the comments, I bring news of a dream employee. You see, she’s not at all entitled. It’s just that the world must revolve around her:

I think we can assume that madam’s professed “time blindness” – which apparently precludes the use of the reminder function on her phone – doesn’t result in her turning up for work early, or accidentally working extra hours. Or being in any way more useful or helpful, or less self-involved.

I think we can assume that with some confidence.

On the lighter side of "News & Current Events", could there really be Big Foot lurking about?

Some people are not equipped to live among "normal" society. They usually are a Genius Award Winner.

Albert Lee Gardner, also referred to as "Joker" in court records going back to when he was 18-years-old, reportedly was found overdosed by sheriff deputies after he cut off his court-mandated GPS tracking device.

The 29-year-old survived after being administered Narcan and was taken to the Hernando County Detention Center with the charges of violating his probation -- from a previous guilty adjudication of lewd or lascivious battery with a victim between 12-and-15-years-old -- and tampering with an electronic monitoring device, per the Hernando County Sheriff's Office (HCSO).

A silly contest becomes: Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Amother and her two sons pulled an elderly neighbor from his burning home early Monday.

Helena Fire Department Chief Jon Campbell said in an interview Monday about eight or nine HFD firefighters responded to the 1800 block of Joslyn Street at 4:03 a.m. for a call of a structure fire.

The single occupant of the manufactured home, whom Campbell believed to be about 70 years old, was pulled from the blaze by a family of three that lived across the narrow neighborhood street. The occupant of the home was transported to St. Peter’s hospital by ambulance with severe burn injuries.

"Alert neighbors detected the fire and were able to remove the victim from the building prior to Fire Department's arrival," the news release states.

"I don't know who they are, but their actions are nothing short of heroic," Campbell said.
