The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral, self-righteous, bullying laziness. Penn Jillette


Quote II

The American dream comes from opportunity. The opportunity comes from our founding principles, our core values that's held together and protected by the Constitution. Those ideas are neither Republican, Democrat, conservative, liberal, white, or black. Those are American ideologies. Ted Yoho


Quote III

Really people, this is getting exhausting. How many times do we have to say it? How many people have to plead for forgiveness and end up humiliated, broken, and – not incidentally – unforgiven before people understand that the only effective response to these monsters’ fake outrage is to flip them the middle 20 percent of the fingers of a Bulwark staffer’s primary erotic partner? Kurt Schlichter


Quote III

“If Tucker wanted to prove that today’s armed forces need a priority check, he couldn’t have written a better script than this. The military isn’t supposed to be publicly haranguing American citizens for criticizing them.”Jim Treacher


Quote IV

“People will always say it’s a gimmick. But it’s not. Solar brings down costs and makes EV more affordable without sacrificing the convenience,”Laurin Hahn, the founder and CEO of German startup Sono Motors

Quote V

“You will notice that establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and against Republicans. Meanwhile, stories that hurt Democrats or undermine their narratives are buried, ignored, or delayed until they can do the least harm—for example, after an election is over. President Donald J. Trump

So Pope Francis hasn't quite completely "jumped the shark" yet.

ROME (AP) — The Vatican decreed Monday that the Catholic Church cannot bless same-sex unions since God “cannot bless sin.”

The Vatican’s orthodoxy office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, issued a formal response Monday to a question about whether Catholic clergy can bless gay unions.

The answer, contained in a two-page explanation published in seven languages and approved by Pope Francis, was “negative.”

The decree distinguished between the church’s welcoming and blessing of gay people, which it upheld, but not their unions since any such sacramental recognition could be confused with marriage.

The Vatican holds that gays must be treated with dignity and respect, but that gay sex is “intrinsically disordered.” Catholic teaching holds that marriage, a lifelong union between a man and woman, is part of God’s plan and is intended for the sake of creating new life.

My maternal grandfather and my father took me fishing as a child. I developed a love for it. Unfortunately there are many children including African-American children who do not have male figures in their lives to introduce them to the great outdoors.

A University of Vermont professor made his contribution to the canon of the "woke" recently. In his new book, The Color of Culture, Professor of Sociology Dan Krymkowski said systemic racism prevents Black people from exploring the outdoors.

“Whites can be cultural omnivores in ways African Americans can’t,” Krymkowski said, as Campus Reform reported. Krymkowski was commenting on data from the National Forest Service and National Endowment for the Arts showing that Black people participate in activities like hiking, golf, cold-water recreation, and hunting and fishing far less than Whites. He says the “only factor that explains the...discrepancy is racial bias.”

Krymkowski’s book also cited data reporting Blacks people's participation in ballet, theatre, and classical music. From the University of Vermont’s website:

African Americans participate at rates from two to five times less than whites in these areas, the book’s statistical analysis shows. Examples include golf, at 17% for whites, 6% for Blacks; hiking, at 38% vs. 13%; downhill skiing at 7% vs. 2%; attending classical music concerts at 11% vs. 4%; and visiting art museums at 24% vs. 12%.

Mental disease and illness comes in all shapes and forms. Woman says she found true love, had children with rollercoaster

You could say that I’m sexually drawn to rollercoasters but since I met the Sky Scream rollercoaster, I understood what love was,” the France-born Engel told Jam Press of her attraction to the attraction at Germany’s Holiday Park.

“I spend every moment dreaming of a carnal and fusional relationship with it.”

The 43-year-old says she has been sexually attracted to objects since she was 12. The painter and poet has had three serious romantic human relationships, but found them all to be traumatic.

“I will not philosophize on these relationships that ruined my life but it was only suffering, physical and moral,” she said. “The men I dated had a lot of issues with alcohol and it was a very hard time for me.”

Hanging with her would make me have alcohol problems as well.

Why does the NBA suck up to China? Follow the money.

The Chinese TV commercial that the NBA doesn’t want its players to see

The National Basketball Association has climbed into bed with the Chinese Communist Party because the nation it rules is a huge market that seems to be in love with basketball. So eager to please the ruling communists is the NBA that fans with protest signs supporting Hong Kong democracy protestors were kicked out of games.

The NBA does, however, love protests against the United States, especially Black Lives Matter protests, even though those have led to death and destruction in this country. The vast majority (almost 3/4) of NBA players are Black, even though such a widely disproportionate racial makeup of any other highly paid workforce outside of athletics would be deemed strong evidence of racial discrimination.

As the great Yogi Berra once said, ""It's like déjà vu all over again."

The feeling of déjà vu can be a bizarre experience that forces you to second guess your own memory.

It evokes a sense that you've already experienced the present situation before, with the French phrase translating as 'already seen'.

And while some theories suggest that déjà vu is the brain recalling a memory from a previous life or could even be a premonition of the future, a doctor has revealed some of the science behind it.

Dr Karan Raj has gained millions upon millions of views on his TikTok channel sharing advice, quirky facts and a glimpse at life as a medical professional.

I've lived in whitetail deer country all of my life. I've hit a few over the years. But I have never seen anything like this on the road.

Dramatic dashcam video out of Michigan shows a herd of deer stampeding over a remote road, where they narrowly avoided hitting a stunned driver’s car. Mostly.

The wild encounter was captured on a police cruiser’s dashcam video Feb. 26, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

The police cruiser was driving along behind a black sedan on a two-lane highway through the woods when the deer suddenly emerged from the trees, dashing and leaping across the road in a flurry of activity.

Never stick your dick in crazy, there could be a discharge. Co-Genius Award Winner.

A Missouri woman arrested last month on drug and weapons charges had a small revolver hidden in a body cavity that went undetected during a strip search and two pat downs, police report.

The four-inch .22 caliber firearm--fully loaded with five rounds--was discovered yesterday by personnel at the Boone County Jail. The weapon, wrapped in plastic, was found among the personal belongings of Amy Natasha Wilhite, 39, who was booked into the facility on February 14 following her arrest by the Columbia Police Department.

Wilhite was charged with possession of methamphetamine, resisting arrest, unlawful possession of a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also booked for failing to appear in court in connection with prior collars for domestic assault and drunk driving.


39? You could have fooled me.

Boy With Autism Who Only Eats One Brand Of Discontinued Waffles Gets Home Recipe


A family-owned food producer has come to the rescue of a desperate mother who put out a call for their brand of discontinued waffles.


Nature's Path has helped out, she said, by sending her what little stock they had left.

But now, the company has ensured that Jerico will have all the maple waffles he can eat for years to come.

Nature's Path was able to adapt the recipe for the product -- which is usually made in massive batches -- for home use. On Friday, it delivered that recipe, along with the necessary ingredients to the family.
