The Quotes of The Day

Quote I


"We just see the tip of the iceberg. You don't know who you're hurting. You think you're protecting the consumer and turns out you're bankrupting a co-op or a city. And so it's dangerous, after something is run, to go around and redo it." Texas PUC Chairman Arthur D'Andrea

How much would you like to wager that this c*cksu*cker isn't looking at a 4 to 5 digit power bill.


Quote II


By firing her, President Biden has once again signaled his administration’s deep-seated antipathy to religious liberty wherever such liberty clashes with the pet politics of Democrats. The Faith & Freedom Coalition

Quote III

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. Gilbert K. Chesterton


Quote IV


Meanwhile, in real-life France, working-class women are losing their freedom to leave the house due to Muslim hooligans feeling ever more entitled to catcall and paw at women they deem dressed immodestly by the standards of the Iron Age cultures they brought with them.Steve Sailer

Are you worried that Uncle Paste Eatin' Joe isn't up to being the Resident of the White House? You are not alone........

Fear not Americans we are getting ready for the Kamala "The San Francisco Headhunter" Harris show.

Doddery old Joe Biden isn't even trying to hide it anymore. His gaffes and garble are soaring to orbit. The faraway look in his eyes is growing dimmer. The public is noticing.

He called himself a transition president. He presumably joked that he'd resign if he ever disagreed with Harris. But much sooner than anyone thought, a Hollywood style starlet build-up for Vice President Kamala Harris is beginning as if to prepare the public for his replacement.

Start with this International Women's Day tweet from someone at the controls of the Twitter account of senile old Joe

Blogger David Thompson regularly skims Scary Mommy so you don't have to. That doesn't mean I won't bring some tidbits your way.

Exemplary Beings
Time for a quick flick through Scary Mommy, where left-leaning ladies are “supporting each other through laughter and empowerment.”

I have clinical anxiety.

But of course.

My current fixation happens to be a home invasion… My house is nigh on impossible, according to my husband, to break into. However, I can’t stop thinking about it.

No explanation is offered by the author, Elizabeth Broadbent, as to possible causes, but the fixation with “scary men breaking into my home” entails lots of weeping - “tears and breakdowns” are a recurring theme - and the purchase of many things.

My husband has had to buy any number of security items. A raging liberal who believes no one has any reason to own anything but a permitted shotgun for hunting, I’ve contemplated buying a pistol. These thoughts will not go away… So I down another Klonopin and wait.

Oh, come on. It’s Scary Mommy. You knew some kind of mood-stabilising medication would crop up sooner or later. Other unhappy preoccupations include recurring thoughts of an expired husband:

I laid in bed imagining different ways he could meet his demise.

And,

After the birth of my third son, I became convinced that his head would fall off.

Okay, then.

That’s when… they upped my meds.

Who died and made Houston's police chief, Art Acevedo, God? Everything is bigger in Texas including assholes.

Texans who violate businesses' mask policies can still be arrested even after the end of the statewide mask mandate, Houston's police chief, Art Acevedo, said Tuesday.

If customers refuse to wear a mask after being asked by a business, they can also be barred from entering the premises for "at least a year," he told CNBC's "The News with Shepard Smith."

Gov. Greg Abbott lifted Texas' statewide mask mandate Wednesday, making Texas the largest state yet to do so.

An interesting crime drama/story........Is she alive and has the nic "Hop-A-Long" or is she dead?

A missing Australian woman accused of fraud may have severed her own foot to trick police into thinking she is dead, police have claimed.

Melissa Caddick, 49, from Sydney vanished on November 11 last year, the day after the country's corporate watchdog ASIC executed a search warrant for her luxury £3million (AUD $6.1 million) home.

She is accused of swindled more than £14 million (AUD $25million) worth of investors' funds, and leaving 68 victims of fraud in her wake.

When it comes to cool gadgets. The US Armed Forces have some nifty ones.

The U.S. Army’s new goggles can help soldiers see right through the walls of combat vehicles, which means infantry troops will have unparalleled situational awareness.

✈ You love badass military tech. So do we. Let’s nerd out over this stuff together.
The Army is developing its Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) goggles for close-combat forces, including mounted and dismounted troops, particularly infantry. The service hopes to field tens of thousands of the goggles, which can also help soldiers see in the dark, check around corners, and even project digital maps and other data onto the lenses.

Poll: Trust In U.S. Military Nosediving…

Via Military Times:

Trust in the U.S. military has decreased significantly in recent years, but armed forces still remain among the most respected institutions in the country, according to a new public opinion poll released by the Ronald Reagan Institute this week.

Well lookey here. The chickens vultures have come home to roost.

The Miseducation of America’s Elites

Affluent parents, terrified of running afoul of the new orthodoxy in their children’s private schools, organize in secret.

The dissidents use pseudonyms and turn off their videos when they meet for clandestine Zoom calls. They are usually coordinating soccer practices and carpools, but now they come together to strategize. They say that they could face profound repercussions if anyone knew they were talking.

But the situation of late has become too egregious for emails or complaining on conference calls. So one recent weekend, on a leafy street in West Los Angeles, they gathered in person and invited me to join.

In a backyard behind a four-bedroom home, ten people sat in a circle of plastic Adirondack chairs, eating bags of Skinny Pop. These are the rebels: well-off Los Angeles parents who send their children to Harvard-Westlake, the most prestigious private school in the city.

The ONT Musical Interlude


Side 1 is finished. Eject and start side 2. RIP Lou Ottens.

The Dutch engineer credited with inventing the audio cassette has died. Lou Ottens was 94.

As head of product development for Philips in 1960, he led a team that developed the initial portable tape recorder; he then introduced the first cassette tape at a Berlin electronics fair three years later. The slogan back then: "Smaller than a pack of cigarettes!"

My first cassette, I believe it was a "cut-out". Get off my lawn...........

Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

An armed person stopped an attempted burglary in Atlanta this week, police said.

On March 8 around 3:03 p.m., officers responded to a Chik-fil-A on Peachtree Street.

“Upon arrival, officers spoke with witnesses who stated a black male walked inside, produced a firearm and demanded money from several employees. The employees fled and the suspect exited the business a short time later. Several nearby citizens confronted the suspect as he was leaving. One of the citizens was armed and at some point, during the confrontation, the citizen fired several shots. The suspect ran on foot and was apprehended nearby, by the citizens and held until police arrived,” the Atlanta Police Department said in a preliminary update sent to The Epoch Times.

“The suspect’s weapon was recovered. No one was struck by the gunfire and charges are pending against the robbery suspect. No charges have been filed against the citizen and the investigation continues,” the department added.

The suspect was identified as Willie Gloston IV, 23. The arrest report does not show an address for Gloston.

It really would have been a great story if the perp had been subdued by a high speed projectile.
