The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'. Erma Bombeck

Quote II

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. Albert Schweitzer

Quote III

There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.' C. S. Lewis


I'm from the government and I'm here to really foul things up worse.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg revealed Wednesday that the Department of Transportation (DOT) has introduced a new rule to increase the size of airplane bathrooms.

The rule will “require airlines to make lavatories on new single-aisle aircraft large enough to permit a passenger with a disability and attendant, both equivalent in size to a 95th percentile male, to approach, enter, and maneuver within as necessary to use the aircraft lavatory,” according to a DOT press release. The new rule follows the January decision by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a DOT subagency, to temporarily ground all flights in the U.S. for the first time since the September 11 attacks in response to a widespread FAA system outage.


Mitt Romney is a religious carpet bagging opportunist. He's a Democrat in Republican clothing. When it come's to presidential campaigns he's a loser. Why would anyone running for POTUS listen to him?.

Despite Donald Trump’s apparent inevitability, a baker’s dozen Republicans are hoping to become the party’s 2024 nominee for president. That is possible for any of them if the field narrows to a two-person race before Mr. Trump has the nomination sewn up. For that to happen, Republican megadonors and influencers—large and small—are going to have to do something they didn’t do in 2016: get candidates they support to agree to withdraw if and when their paths to the nomination are effectively closed. That decision day should be no later than, say, Feb. 26, the Monday following the contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.

There are incentives for no-hope candidates to overstay their prospects. Coming in behind first place may grease another run in four years or have market value of its own: Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum got paying gigs. And as former New Hampshire Gov. John H. Sununu has observed, “It is fun running for president if you know you cannot win.”

As they would say in France, "La Fuck off Pierre Delecto".


I think we have all put up with some bad neighbors over our *29 years on earth. This qualifies as a bad neighbor, I believe.

A displaced farmer living in an apartment building has infuriated his neighbors by raising seven calves on his fifth-floor balcony in China's Sichuan province. Apparently the mooing and stench was too much for other residents so they called police who orchestrated the removal of the livestock.

From South China Morning Post:


Tucker and Rapper Ice Cube visit LA.


As Frank Zappa once crooned, "Why does it hurt when I pee?

(Bloomberg) -- A shortage of penicillin to treat a skyrocketing number of syphilis cases is so dire that US health officials are debating the need to declare a public health emergency, according to people familiar with the matter.

Major US medical centers are rationing the recommended treatment for the deadly sexually transmitted disease because of a supply crunch. From Michigan to Missouri to Texas, some health-care providers are prioritizing giving a key treatment — penicillin G benzathine — to pregnant patients and babies, because the drug can pass through the placenta and also treat the fetus.

You're welcome.


Being a parent of a toddler can be a challenging job. However this couple have a real power trip issue.

Two Florida police officers were suspended after jailing their 3-year-old son struggling to learn how to use the bathroom, according to WKMG.

The Daytona Beach Shores Police Department revealed Monday (July 24) that Lt. Michael Schoenbrod and his wife, Sgt. Jessica Long handcuffed their child and placed him in a holding cell in October 2022.

The Florida Department of Children and Families received a tip about this incident and began investigating the couple. The police officers admitted to throwing their kid in jail on two separate occasions because they've been having issues potty-training the boy, state records say. Investigators said the parents aimed to scare the toddler into using the bathroom properly.

Schoenbrod and Long were also accused of smearing feces on the toddler's face, but they denied these claims.

DCF determined this and other serious claims weren't substantiated and decided not to intervene, police said. The State Attorney's Office decided not to prosecute the case following an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, according to officials.


I have the climate change thingy figured out. Say "No" to rolling black outs except for Washington, D.C and the 50 state capitol cities here in the good old USA.

Green agenda alarmists in the corporate media are now calling for widespread electrical grid blackouts for “the greater good” of “solving the climate crisis.”

In an article from the Los Angeles Times, the establishment media outlet argues that it would be “easier and less expensive to fight climate change” if the public would “be willing to live with” blackouts.

In the LA Times piece, writer Sammy Roth questioned what is more critical, “Keeping the lights on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, or solving the climate crisis?”

The push from the corporate media outlet aligns with the radical green agenda goals of Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration.


If this was anyone but MushHead's dog: It would have been destroyed some time ago.

German Shepard dogs owned by the first family continue to pose risks to the Secret Service agents assigned to protect them.

According to The Western Journal on Tuesday, "Secret Service emails show that President Joe Biden's German shepherd Commander bit seven people over four months last year, sending one Secret Service officer to the hospital."

A child is a gift from God. This one came with quite the wrapping and bow. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

He had a hole in his heart and needed constant oxygen, but he made it—and Krysten is now studying to become a NICU nurse, inspired by the care they received.

“When I first held him he could fit in my bra,” said the 22-year-old from Altoona. “Now only his foot fits in.”

“He’s a little fighter.”
