The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"Thank you, Rolf. I’m embarrassed to admit that up until a few years ago, I didn’t know anything about the evils of palm oil. Franky did. This is a woman who watches Grayson Franky. In the second season, Grace very innocently was putting palm oil in vaginal lubrication that she and Franky were going to sell, you know, older women, challenges. Well, when Franky found out that Grace was putting palm oil in the vaginal lubricant, she went ballistic. Grace had never seen Franky get that upset because she loved orangutans and palm oil trees were destroying the habitat of orangutans and she went on a rant that grace had never seen. It was so dramatic that me who plays grace started to research it. And that’s how I found out about the evils of palm oil. You see I have a big problem. I kind of like to think that Lily Tomlin never did anything before grace and Franky. Or 9:00 to 5:00. I kind of like to think she never did anything without me in it, with her. But I’m forced to admit that, in fact, she’s done quite a lot without me and kind of like done things that nobody else has ever done. Like she’s one of the greatest comedians that ever lived."Jane Fonda


Quote II

In an attempt to appease citizen resistance, Northam suggested there would be a ban on only the sales of semi-automatic rifles. He would allow gun owners to keep their current AR-15s and similar rifles as long as they registered them. Otherwise, they must surrender the rifles. I’d urge Virginians not to fall for the registration trick. Knowing who owns what weapons is the first step to confiscation. Dr. Walter E. Williams


Quote III

“We have to be creative and innovative and disruptive and challenge the way we’ve been doing things forever.” Gov. Bill Lee (R-TN)


Quote IV

“It is a community asset, and Wake County commissioners and staff will work to ensure that the facility is again made available for the community’s use as soon as possible,”.County Board of Commissioners Chairman Greg Ford

Unfortunately another senseless attack with a firearm occurred today. Fortunately, there was a good guy present with a pistol to take out the bad guy.

A good guy with a gun shot an alleged church shooter in White Settlement, Texas, Sunday morning.

DFW.CBS Local reports that the alleged gunman entered the church, walked up toward the front, and opened fire just before 10 a.m.

A church member who serves on the church security shot the alleged gunman.

Just imagine how many people could have been injured or killed while waiting for LEO to respond.

An interesting campaign declaration. I suspect the #SalonHot25 have one hell of a hardon.

Joe Biden hasn’t been endorsed by his former boss, Barack Obama, but he’s open to sweetening the deal.

If elected president, Biden says he’ll consider nominating Obama to the Supreme Court.

“Biden [was] asked here in Washington, Iowa, if he would ever nominate former President Obama to serve on the Supreme Court. ‘If he’d take it, yes,’” Wall Street Journal reporter Ken Thomas wrote on Twitter.

Jonah Goldberg hasn't been this hot since his dog humped his leg.

It must be so nice that Los Angeles doesn't have any pressing problems. Los Angeles considering making Uber and Lyft autos all electric.

In November, Los Angeles-based clean technology leaders announced its Zero Emissions 2028 Roadmap 2.0. At the time, Mayor Eric Garcetti called for a 25% reduction in air pollution by 2028. Today the Financial Times is reporting that Los Angeles may now force Uber and Lyft to use electric cars.

Mayor Garcetti said:

“We have the power to regulate car share. We can mandate and are looking closely at mandating that any of those vehicles in the future be electric.”

The city’s 2028 green plan includes purchasing more electric buses, and EVs for the city’s municipal fleet. Electric vehicles would account for 30% of all light-duty passenger vehicles on the road and at least 80% of all vehicles sold. The city may end up deploying America’s first electric fire engine.

This Texas boy is a normal 12 year old boy. Christmas present used for a fire.

Christmas went up in flames for a family in Texas, after a 12-year-old boy decided to use a magnifying glass for something other than reading.

Interior designer Nissa-Lynn Parson shared on Facebook how her family's Christmas Day was "memorable to say the least" after her 12-year-old son used the magnifying glass he received as a present to try to light things on fire.

"Cayden asked for a magnifying glass for Christmas,” Parson said in a video posted to Facebook. “We thought, ‘Oh, he wants to magnify something.’ No, he wanted to see if he can make fire with it, and they did."

If only I were POTUS for a day. What would you do Misanthropic Humanitarian? I would pull us out of the United Nations so fast your head would spin.

The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, also known as UN Women, has declared that motherhood is not a blessing, but a “penalty."

UN Women in a tweet posted on Christmas Eve shared a graphic describing how “Being a mother” has been a “violation” from the “Beginning of time.” Penalties included under this “violation” enforced by “[Officer] P. Atriarchy” include the following:

If you haven't cut the cable yet. Good news for you.

After a longstanding campaign by Consumer Reports, The Television Viewer Protection Act of 2019 passed the House and the Senate last week buried inside a giant appropriations bill that now awaits President Trump's signature. Techdirt reports:

The bill bans ISPs from charging you extra to rent hardware you already own (something ISPs like Frontier have been doing without penalty for a few years). It also forces cable TV providers to send an itemized list of any fees and other surcharges to new customers within 24 hours of signing up for service, and allows users shocked by the higher price to cancel service without penalty.

Rachel Maddow admits when she is on air she is full of shit.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s defense in court over her claim that One America News is “really, literally is paid Russian propaganda” is that statements she makes on her show should not be considered facts.

Regular commenters and lurkers know I have a strong wariness of law enforcement. Although I have distrust of them doesn't mean I'm ready to rid our country of law enforcement.

Latest progressive ‘big idea’ is so foolish it’s hard to believe they’re serious… but they are

Some progressive ideas sound good and seduce the young and naïve with their idealism. Socialism, for example, pretends that selfishness and indolence would not result from common ownership of the means of production. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” was so seductive that it helped inspire communists for over a century, and still appeals to those whose needs exceed their abilities.

But some other ideas, currently being taken seriously by American progressive intellectuals are so self-evidently ridiculous that it is hard to believe that anyone could take them seriously. But this, via City Journal, is not a joke:

The latest call to action from some criminal-justice activists: “Abolish the police.” From the streets of Chicago to the city council of Seattle, and in the pages of academic journals ranging from the Cardozo Law Review to the Harvard Law Review and of mainstream publications from the Boston Review to Rolling Stone, advocates and activists are building a case not just to reform policing—viewed as an oppressive, violent, and racist institution—but to do away with it altogether. When I first heard this slogan, I assumed that it was a figure of speech, used to legitimize more expansive criminal-justice reform. But after reading the academic and activist literature, I realized that “abolish the police” is a concrete policy goal. The abolitionists want to dismantle municipal police departments and see “police officers disappearing from the streets.”

One might dismiss such proclamations as part of a fringe movement, but advocates of these radical views are gaining political momentum in numerous cities. In Seattle, socialist city council candidate Shaun Scott, who ran on a “police abolition” platform, came within 1,386 votes of winning elected office. During his campaign, he argued that the city must “[disinvest] from the police state” and “build towards a world where nobody is criminalized for being poor.” At a debate hosted by the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Scott blasted “so-called officers” for their “deep and entrenched institutional ties to racism” that produced an “apparatus of overaggressive and racist policing that has emerged to steer many black and brown bodies back into, in essence, a form of slavery.” Another Seattle police abolitionist, Kirsten Harris-Talley, served briefly in as an appointed city councilwoman. Both Scott and Harris-Talley enjoy broad support from the city’s progressive establishment.

Special orders don't upset Burger King, the same can't be said for this Genius Award Winner.

DECEMBER 29--Two Burger King employees were attacked yesterday by a Grubhub deliveryman who “became agitated when informed that his order was not ready for pick up,” according to police reports.

Investigators say that Daniel Delellis, 43, arrived at a Burger King in Clearwater, Florida around 5:20 PM Saturday to “pick up an order” for Grubhub, the online food ordering business.

But when told he would have to wait for the order, Delellis allegedly walked outside and picked up a “3 foot in height hard plastic ash tray” and swung it at the restaurant’s front doors. Delellis, seen at right, then struck a male employee in the chest with the ash tray.

It is nice that parent's teach their children to respect cops. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Oliver's mother Danielle posted the photo of her 5-year-old son sitting with Officer William Klees to her Facebook page.

"Tonight I saw Oliver’s eyes light up like I never have before," she wrote. "We were at the mall and he was mid tuck and roll in the play area when I saw his eyes shift to something behind me. I asked what it was and he said 'mommy that police officer is sitting alone' I said yeah, he is. You can go ask to sit with him if you want. Without hesitation he ran over and said 'sir could I please sit with you' they talked for over 45 minutes and it made Oliver's year.

65 17 A good guy with a gun shot an alleged church shooter in White Settlement, Texas, Sunday morning.

'Alleged'?
__________________

It was great to see all those alleged armed church members draw their guns and move towards the alleged shooter.

Good on them for keeping their wits about them, and for moving towards the danger so they could protect their fellow churchgoers. That video could have been like those school shooter surveillance videos (that have been described in news reports) showing the shooters calmly walking around the room and executing the cowering victims. But fortunately for this church, there were multiple members who were not willing to be victims, and they took steps (buying guns, getting training and practice, etc.) to protect themselves and the other church members. They stepped up, and kudos to them for their effective actions which likely saved many lives today. We need more people who think and act like them!

66 The Left CANNOT "abolish the police". They need a police force that makes the Securitate and Vopos look like Sunday schoolboys for their schemes to work. Yet again, here's proof that if you look at all of the Left's "ideas", they all work at cross purposes with each other.

We CAN and SHOULD be wary of law enforcement. Their role - that of investigating crime - is important, but not ever above criticism. Indeed, one of my arguments for increasing the number of armed, concealed citizens is that we can at long last have such a reduction in crime that we can start to have fewer cops, which ultimately will lead to a more professional force, and will lead to even more positive outcomes for the cops, government, and the citizenry alike.

79 Abolish the police

Part of it is that the Left hates the cops because they know that the cops are generally right-wing (you get that way dealing with criminals all day). For example, the neighborhood in Chicago that a lot of cops live in was the only one of Chicago's fifty neighborhoods to vote for Trump.

They want to replace the police with an overtly left-wing paramilitary organization, whose members are explicitly selected for having left-wing political views. They are talking about having a disarmed force, but that will change pretty quickly - the key thing is to make sure that politics controls the hiring.

But Lily Tomlin is quite talented. Milady and I did enjoy a memorable live one-woman stage performance by her in Chicago many years back. When technical difficulties interrupted her show, she just dropped out of character and chatted with the audience about this and that, then, when things were fixed, picked right back up again. Sometimes the things that go wrong in live performances can actually enhance the experience. sometimes.

He never drained the water off of the plastic, so when the sun came out, the water magnified it's rays, and the MG caught fire.

172 Well, the Portland paper is doing an interesting thing as battlespace preparation for the 2020 election - it is eliminating comments to articles on January 2nd.

Some comments were over the top, but I suspect what really exercised the paper was the presence of right-wing commentary (along with left wing commentary) on the political articles, undercutting the unrelievedly left-wing perspective of the paper.

Judging from the reaction of Portland twitter, this is a late Christmas for Portland leftists - they are just ecstatic that a platform for political debate has been shut down. They don't want to win arguments - they want to ban the other side from making arguments that they don't agree with.

Posted by: Infidel at December 29, 2019 10:27 PM (MTxDQ)

Yeah, it is not Beam Suntory. I remember when beam was part of Fortune Brands They made booze, Titielist golf balls, and i think moen faucets. That was a good business. Titleist is like rawlings of baseball gloves or actually more so. It owns about 90 percent of the business. I recall Beam went on its own for a short period as a publicly traded stock then got snapped up by Suntory.

The reality is about three or four companies own 90 percent of the Bourbon Whiskey brands we know today. I am being generous here, it is mainly three companies that own 89 percent of the major brands. There are still new ones coming on but the winners are often gobbled up too.

Because she gets her info from scripts because she's too lazy and too dumb to do any actual info gathering before trying to destroy an industry.

LOL. One of the Portland leftists I follow on Twitter, who thinks that gerbil warbeling is an existential crisis requiring that Everything Must Change, recently posted a number of Tweets saying that the planned expansion of Portland airport must stop (the money should be invested in trains) and how wonderful the "flight shaming" movement is in Europe.

I should have known there was motivation behind these tweets - he flew to Maui for four days on Christmas Day (he indignantly posted a photograph of a sexist ad at the Maui airport). He took a European vacation a few months ago as well.

It's not important that he stop flying - what's important is that you stop flying.

285 Back in the day we would go watch the Steve Goodman New Year's Eve show at the Earl of Olde Town. Milady's Mom sat the kids.

Wasn't long as the kids grew that we just enjoyed sitting at home listening to the Midnight Special on WFMT, honking horns, banging pots, and off to bed witcha, kiddos.

Finally became our tradition to not go anywhere if we could help it because people are extra-crazy then. Stay at home, watch the ghost of Dick Clark drop in Times Square, and stumble to bed. If we made it past 10.

This year we may spend NYE night at Mom's, so we can have our traditional Good Luck in the New Year Black Eye Pea stew together on New Year's Day.

296 "they want so badly to live in 1968 forever, it's frankly sad at this point."

Well, if you did have to live in 1968 forever one good thing about it would be the prime time TV shows... the original Star Trek, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Mission Impossible, Hawaii Five-O, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Laugh-In, The Carol Burnett Show, The Dean Martin Show, etc.,

I got to watching the 1968 Dean Martin Christmas show on You Tube last night and it was just as sweet and fun as it gets. Toward the end Dean brought all the kids of the people who worked on the show out on stage -- of course all those little kids are my age or older and most of them probably have grandchildren by now. I guess back then entertainers understood that people watched their shows with their families to escape from all the turmoil of the times, not to have their noses rubbed in it....

Right next to the church is a Waffle House. You CAN'T get anymore Texas that that!

He's still unsteady on his feet and it's questionable as to whether he really recognizes us, but he's suffered a tremendous blow and the effects may lingering. We'll do the best we can for him but we won't let him live in a poor quality of life.

He told everyone he was drunk on limoncello and then he basshed the president. Of course the end result is a bunch of future wine mom's wondered what limoncello was and Danny started his own brand. It is funny what the public gets from things. Crap on the pres and we want your limoncello.

I have never seen his overpriced brand so either it went defunct or is very regional. I guess because he has an Italian last name he is a limoncello expert.

441 Gonna start this year's batch of limoncello soon. Meyer tree has never had a crop like now, but the flavor/aroma is still excellent. Like my own better than any commercial brand I've had, but need to try more. They generally use Santa Theresa lemons, which are similar in flavor to Eureka or Lisbon, but thinner-skinned with more oil.


With the recent rain, when I've walked out near the tree in the mornings you can smell the amazing perfume as you approach the tree.

The only intelligent thing I've heard from Tom Steyer is his desire to impose term limits on Congress. He's correct in not only the corrupt Congresscreeps not going for term limits, but the PACs and lobbyists who pay Congresscreeps won't go for it, either. Steyer should add unelected judges to that term limits wish list.

466 Blonde M. I just use Kamchatka 100-proof. Have never tried to find/try any other kinds, figure most vodka is neutral, lemon flavor predominates. Very carefully peel and remove pith from skins, about 10 lemons per each 750-ml bottle of vodka, depending on lemon size, which varies year to year. Leave the peels in about 4-6 weeks, in a lever-closure bottle in a kitchen cabinet, agitate occasionally.


Pour it out thru a cheesecloth, and add simple syrup in the ratio 2/3 [infused vodka] to 1 part simple syrup. Works beautifully.


Also do pickled slices and preserved [salted] lemons with them, and preserves [just peeled/seeds removed and cooked down with sugar].

I was just reading some stuff released from the Epstein lawsuit docs.

Ghislaine had a strong pimp hand. If any of the Lolitas refused to put out and do as she was told, Ghislaine would get rough with them. And it sounded like severe psychological torture as opposed to physical.

I think Ghislaine learned well at Daddy's knee.

Ghislaine will never be brought to justice. She knows too much about too many powerful people and the governments they work for.

She might wind up dead, if they can swing it, but that's about it.

540 He wouldn't accept an SC nomination. The job is too much work. He'd just be a SCOAMF in that role as well.
________________

Yeah, I doubt he'd want the job. Not because it's too much work, we all know the clerks write the bulk of the opinions. But Barky wouldn't be able to be an "influencer" in that role. He'd have to keep his giant mouth shut, more or less, and that wouldn't suit him. It would also impinge on his money-making scams, because justices are supposed to abide by those pesky ethics rules and disclosure requirements. No, Barky will continue to try to be a Dim king-maker and graft collector, because those roles are more suited to his negligible talents and massive greed.

It is not a crime to name a whistle blower.

The only thing whistle blowers laws protect against is to not be retaliated against, ie, fired, demoted, etc.

The do not promise or allow for anonymity.

So If Trump wanted to scrawl his name on air force one and take it around the world to advertise his name, it would not be a crime.

A day after she was released without bail on charges stemming from the Friday attack, Tiffany Harris was charged with assault for slugging a 35-year-old in the face on Eastern Parkway near Underhill Avenue in Prospect Heights at about 9:15 a.m., according to police.

Trump is nervous. Trump is crying. Trump is impulsive. Trump is doomed. The wheels are closing out.

Bill Clinton is not a rapist, and Hillary is not his accomplice and enabler.

The establishment Democrat/Republican uniparty has not been selling the U.S. government to the highest bidder for 50 years.

The 'impeachment' is not a fraud perpetrated by chickenshit cocksuckers trying to stay out of jail.

McCain was used as a tool for the deep state to give the Dossier gravitas and a hook to get it out into the public.

The LE/IC apparatus were already using the dossier well before McCain's involvement.
