The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I could have gone to Italy and got the sandwich,” Vera Conner

Quote II

"Virtue-signalling" is a cutesy phrase but, if it can encompass the sacrifice of your own children on the altar of diversity, then our society does not deserve to survive. If you can't summon righteous anger over attempted re-enactments of the Massacre of the Innocents, when can you?" Mark Steyn

Quote III

There is nothing to salvage from the wreckage of America’s failed policies toward Iraq and Syria by keeping U.S. troops in both countries. Biden should bring our troops home, lest he become yet another president to pointlessly squander American lives in the deserts of the Levant. Dan Caldwell, Vice President at the Center for Renewing America

Dave Grohl Needs “No Cursing” Sign To Remind Himself Not to Curse in Abu Dhabi
Usage of the F-word is punishable by up to a year in prison


I guess I won't be traveling to Abu Dhabi any fucking time soon.

I'm not Irish. I don't even pretend to be on St. Patrick's Day. Paul Joseph Watson takes a look at Irish anger. The average citizen of Ireland is taking it good and hard. Elections have consequences.

So the Hamas Welcome Wagon murderous thugs aren't the perfect hosts after all. I think Susan Sarandoncould stand to miss a few meals. Perhaps she should join Hamas.


First Medical Reports on Released Hamas Hostages Are in, and They Aren't Good

The first reports about the medical conditions of the hostages released from Hamas captivity are out, and they aren't good.

The news comes on the heels of several dozen hostages being released as part of a rolling ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas. The halt in hostilities is expected to last as long as the terrorist government continues to release those they took captive on October 7th as planned. Israel has vowed to resume military action to destroy Hamas once the ceasefire ends.

As to the condition of the hostages that have been returned, initial reports show signs of starvation

What is Biomass? And if you answer Lena Dunham, you are incorrect.

Ottawa plans on expanding its clean technology and electricity tax credits to include heat and electricity produced by burning biomass, as outlined in its fall economic statement.


Biomass is a very broad term, but in this context, it primarily refers to pellets that are created by pressurizing leftover wood or agricultural materials from processing lumber or crops.

Ajay Dalai, the Canada Research Chair on Bioenergy out of the University of Saskatchewan, said Canada is “sitting on a gold mine in terms of biomass availability of products.”

“The amount of bioenergy that we produce in the country, I looked at the data, is about seven terawatt hours compared to one thousand terawatt hours worldwide coming from biomass — a very small fraction coming from the Canadian biomass.”

We really have sunk into Banana Republic status without growing bananas. Remarkable. Leave it to the left to convict someone of a crime without so much as a trial.

Colorado Supreme Court Will Hear Appeal Of 14th Amendment Case Against Trump

The Colorado Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal of a lower court’s ruling in favor of keeping former President Donald Trump on the state’s ballot next year.

The state high court’s decision comes after Judge Sarah B. Wallace ruled earlier this month that Trump was guilty of engaging in an insurrection but found that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which forbids anyone who engaged in such activity from running for office, does not specifically name the presidency.

It's only money. What is the big deal? Just print some more.

Auto dealers are struggling to sell backlogs of electric vehicles pushed onto their lots by manufacturers that have been forced to ramp up production by President Biden’s quest to end the use of fossil fuels.

Along the way, the government and utilities have shifted the costs to taxpayers through billions of dollars in subsidies.

A study calculates that taxpayers are on the hook for a staggering $50,000 for every electric vehicle sale, or $22 billion annually. That excludes a recently extended $7,500 tax credit for certain electric vehicle purchases.

The short answer? NO!

Digital car keys are here. Are we ready?

NFC versus ultra wideband. Tap-to-start versus passive signals. If we’re going to use our phones to operate our cars, we need to get a lot of this straightened out — and soon.

And there is another reason I'll never purchase a new vehicle.

While in Lithuania do what the Lithuanians do. Or something like that.

US Army soldiers marched with medieval knights in Lithuania

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization boasts 31 nations in its ranks, millions of troops from those states, multiple arsenals of nuclear weapons and thousands of tanks. It also features knights in medieval armor.

At least five of them. Yes, really. And American soldiers just joined them for a military parade.

Saturday, Nov. 25 was the 105th Lithuanian Armed Forces Day. The holiday celebrates the reestablishment of the nation’s own sovereign armed forces following the end of World War I. This year roughly 1,400 people marched through the capital city of Vilnius, alongside 100 pieces of military equipment.

Ripped from old headlines: A twenty second orgasm. Genius Award Winner.

AUGUST 27--A woman arrested for masturbating with a vibrator on a Georgia beach told police that she did not think anyone witnessed her self-pleasure session “because it only took her 20 seconds to orgasm,” according to a police report.

Responding to a 5:30 PM report of a woman “performing a sexual act on the beach,” Tybee Island cops last month interviewed a witness who said the female suspect placed a towel on the sand and then opened her backpack and removed “what looked like a vibrator.”

The woman, the witness told police, began using the apparent vibrator to masturbate, adding that she “could hear her moaning.” After about five minutes, the woman gathered her belongings and departed.

I love my Stanley Thermoses. And now I have a greater appreciation for the company that makes them. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A Stanley Thermos Survives a Car Fire, so Stanley Replaces Both the Mug and the Car

Kia Sorento owner Danielle lit up TikTok with a viral video of her approaching her car which had recently caught fire. Within the torched interior, stood a solitary undamaged item.

It was a Stanley thermos, and it was the reason for the 84 million shares and 60k comments that festooned the post.

“Everybody’s so concerned about if the Stanley spills, but what about if it melts?” she asks in the video, then she grabs the Stanley thermos in the cupholder and shakes it. “Fire yesterday,” she says. “Still has ice in it.”
