The Quotes of The Day

Quote I


“I come back to centering on our mission of unlocking the potential of human creativity and enabling more than a billion people to enjoy the work of what we think will be more than 50 million creators. That mission makes these clashes worth the effort,” Spotify CEO Daniel Ek


Quote II

“No one likes to watch people fighting, and we’re supposed to support one another — respect and obey Reagan’s ‘11th commandment.’ But If we are truly going to stop the assault on our freedoms and stop what’s happening to our country, where America is just being able to be sold out to the rest of the world. We have to lean into this civil war in the GOP.”Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA)


I couldn't agree more.


Quote III

‘We had been in our house for four years at that point and found this shoved in the basement wall shelving. It is in fact a VIBRATOR from the 60s.

‘It does work, no I have not tried it.’McKayla Pinsker


I call Bullshit.


Quote IV

“I want to end the hour with a final thought, and I'm going to go a little bit rogue here, so bear with me, OK? Jeff Zucker's departure was shocking to the staff of CNN. But CNN was not built by just one man, not by only Ted Turner and it was not led only by Jeff Zucker. CNN is so much bigger than any single individual. It is about teams and teams of people thousands of individuals who make up CNN. This place is not perfect, it will never be perfect. We will always have flaws, we will always screw up, we will always have to run corrections, we will always have to keep working to make it better and better and better every single day. That is the goal.” CNN's Brian Stelter

I believe he said this while on his knees and his ears were being gently massaged.

I wonder if Dr. Fauci and his Gang of Monsters had anything to do with this. Mutant super-gonorrhoea spreading across UK - with couple amongst first diagnosed

The pair in their 20s are among four people in the UK to be diagnosed with Neisseria gonorrhoea so far. It is resistant to the antibiotic ceftriaxone and is spreading across the country

What is the best towing EV? Well that would be my V8 98 Chevy Z71 4 WD truck, Silly.

An EV may be your next tow vehicle — and the options just keep getting better.

If you’re looking for the best EV for towing a trailer or boat, you’re in luck. There are more electrified cars and trucks available in the automotive marketplace today than ever before, and quite a few are engineered to tow some substantial weight.

A complete compendium of those EVs offering maximum trailer weight ratings of at least 1,500 pounds could go on forever. You don’t have forever, so we rounded up a representative group of the electric vehicles available today that offer maximum trailer weight ratings ranging from 1,500 to 10,000-plus pounds. One of these smart and powerful EVs just might be your best EV that can tow.

Before We Dig In: Let’s Review the ABCs of EVs
There are different types of vehicle propulsion systems that make them an EV, and they work in different ways. There are battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).

SERIOUSLY: Biden admin to fund crack pipe distribution for ‘racial equality’

You might think you’ve heard it all, but here’s a story of the Biden administration funding the distribution of crack pipes that might just challenge that notion.

Via Free Beacon:

The Biden administration is set to fund the distribution of crack pipes to drug addicts as part of its plan to advance “racial equity.”

The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant, which is overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services, are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any illicit substance.”

The soft bigotry of low expectations. Or any expectations.

Well this should certainly make flying this airline even more interesting or disturbing, it depends on your point of view.

Frontier Airlines and Spirit Airlines, the two largest ultralow-cost carriers in the U.S., have agreed to merge, creating what would become the fifth-largest airline in the country.

The company boards approved the deal over the weekend.

The deal, valued at $6.6 billion, is structured with Frontier Airlines controlling the merged airline and Spirit holding the remaining 48.5%.

Ewwww. A letter. That will frighten them. Not! Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gets all senatorial with Go-Fund-Me.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said he sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission asking for an investigation into GoFundMe after the for-profit crowdfunding platform ended the fundraiser for Canadian truckers.

"Today I sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission asking that the FTC open an investigation into GoFundMe into whether they've committed deceptive trade practices," Cruz told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures."

"Because when people gave money, they gave money under the promise it would go to the Freedom Convoy, not to whatever left-wing political ideology GoFundMe and other Silicon Valley companies support. They are deceiving consumers and it is wrong,"


Perhaps a Constitutional attorney could lead a class action law suit against Go-Fund-Me because you damn well that letter isn't going to change bupkis.

Let's exam human nature. What happens when someone in authority tells you not to do something. My guess not from previous experinece (cough, cough) is that people will disobey.

AMERICUS — Attorney William McCall Calhoun Jr. questioned potential jurors Monday for his client’s pending murder trial, probing for biases that could affect his chances.


At one point during the proceeding, a court-ordered ankle monitor could be seen poking from beneath the pantleg of Calhoun’s slate-blue suit.

Later, Sumter County Superior Court Judge Jimmie Brown told the jurors not to do any of their own research about the case.


You damn well if you see a defense attorney wearing an ankle monitor and a judge tells you not to run a search on him, they will.

Fear the man who has nothing to lose, for he who loves nothing, therefore fears nothing. Fear the man who has everything to lose, for he who has everything, will stop at nothing to protect it.This has the appearance of all out confiscation to me.

San Jose’s aspiring tyrant, Democrat Mayor Sam Liccardo, thinks he’s figured out a way to separate gun owners and their guns. He pushed through a measure to require gun owners to buy an insurance policy (that doesn’t exist) and to pay a “fee” in order to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

Nevermind that the Mayor’s plan will impact the poor and minorities in his city the hardest. As every good wanna-be authoritarian inevitably concludes, Mayor Liccardo will have to break a few eggs in order to make an omelet.

I'm not sure if it will end up on his permanent record, but he does win tonight's Genius Award Winner 1st Runner Up.

'I was basically an administrator': He was a 6th grader when he hacked a school system. The lack of security made it too easy

A few keystrokes later, he had accessed an Excel document containing every student password.

“You don't think in the back of your mind, ‘Oh, this is going to change my life,’ ‘This is going to get me expelled,’ ‘This is illegal,’” said his mother Janet Currier. “They're not thinking that way. They're just not.”

By 15, Jeremy said he and his friends had gained nearly unfettered access to the Rochester Community Schools systems.

“I was able to log into any person's account and grab any information I wanted,” he said. “I was basically an administrator… I could see everything, unlock doors, I could see cameras.”

“Students are curious, and for the most part, they are not looking to significantly cause harm or mayhem in a school district by accessing systems inappropriately,” said Doug Levin, who runs the K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center, a nonprofit dedicated to helping protect schools from cybersecurity threats.

No word if she's a blond. Genius Award Winner.

An Oregon man tricked a woman into thinking she was training to be a DEA agent for a year, officials say.

Authorities accused him of keeping fake badges, tactical vests, and a rifle that was actually a BB gun.

When caught, the man told agents he and his "trainee" were "into cosplay."

A woman in Oregon who believed that she was training to be a Drug Enforcement Administration agent realized she had been tricked for a year by a man pretending to be her supervisor, according to a criminal complaint seen by Insider.

Robert Edward Golden, 41, is accused by Portland officials of impersonating a DEA special agent, using false credentials to gain information from residents and installing red-and-blue emergency lighting in his car to navigate traffic.

He also kept a tactical vest affixed with "DEA Police" patches, two body-armor-plate carriers, handcuffs, badges, and an AR-15 style rifle which turned out to be a BB gun, an affidavit from a DEA special agent, Morgan T. Barr, said.

She was last night's Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day. She is again tonight.

A rough first showing at the Beijing Winter Olympics for U.S.-born Chinese figure skater Zhu Yi continued on Monday after she fell twice during the final event in the team competition before breaking down in tears on the ice.

Zhu, who was born in California but gave up her American citizenship to compete for China in 2018, began the women’s free skate event well, landing both her first two jumps before falling on a triple-flip attempt, according to Yahoo Sports.

Then we found the air duct vent into the master bath had been altered so you could look through it into the room from the attic. The last inhabitants were a woman, her teenage daughters and her second husband. He had a chair in the attic where he went to smoke. Mrs mentioned that later to the the woman and she was like, 'we divorced no so never mind'. Oh well.

201 The CEO of Spotify has proven to be a pussy. Instead of backing his asset, the highest rated podcast in the world, he grovels to the leftist mob.

He should have done what Adam Corolla did a few years ago when pressured from the cancel crowd. Adam told them to go to hell. He is doing fine these days.

The Spotify CEO has so much more leverage, and cash flow to boot. Instead of standing up to the mob, he bows and grovels. So far, Rogan has "chosen" to remove 113 old episodes of his show. I did listen to his response from a few days ago, and he made a lot of common sense. Of course, this just fans the flames of Leftist hate.

Still, I am impressed with somebody who gets a gig to sit on his ass for a few hours a day, espouses his opinions, and gets paid $100,000,000 for it. That to me is the definition of genius.

Hang in there, Joe Rogan. Thing is, we probably disagree on most political issues. Doesn't matter, he is honest in his views, which cannot be said of many others in the public eye these days.

Cats are both predator and prey, and survive by knowing all the ins and outs of their turf so they don't get caught off guard. A new home, even a good one, is a possible danger until everything possible is learned about it.

227 Well, I guess the memo has gone out from the Biden Administration.

California, Oregon, New Jersey, Delaware, and Connecticut all announced today that their mask requirements will be gone in a number of weeks. (I may have missed some states, and technically unvaccinated people in California will still have to mask, which I'm sure will be ignored.)

Joe wants to declare victory over Covid in his State of the Union Address, so he is clearing the decks.

Oregon was particularly amusing, since just last week state health bureaucrats were preparing a permanent mask mandate. Now, all mask requirements will be gone by March 31st at the latest.

Portland Reddit responded predictably to the news: many commenters announcing that they will wear masks forever, commenters announcing that this was all political (of course - it's always been political), and several parents announcing that the mask requirements have to stay until their two-year-olds can be vaccinated (if you walk around unmasked, you are murdering two-year-olds).

Masks today . . . masks tomorrow . . . masks forever.

ghaaa. this is why we don't let them near our engineers and force them to work through a PM construct as a bridge. PM signed off on the demo as it was a risk reduction to a near term decision point. i supported her on that. then the bd boys got the bit in their teeth so to speak and ran away.

Spotify's problem is that they've been trying to leverage their market position with a whole bunch of "exclusive" podcasts from left leaning social media influencer types. Sure, it's a headache when Michelle Obama or Harry and Meghan get all pissy about their exclusive podcasts being tainted by association, but the real mess is simmering down on the third and fourth tiers of paid talent. Those are the people that'll spurn Spotify as soon as the paychecks and turn their fury into obsessive boycotts and constant rage tweeting.

I think he's serious; it's just that he's got some serious snake oil stuff in his past, and he has the same problems with his staff that Kamala does. But the public doesn't appear to mind much.

The story of his criminal indictment is truly bizarre, and probably should become a book at some point. He's still under indictment now; but it's been 5 years and no court has been willing to hear the case. It never gets dismissed, it never goes to trial. It just bounces and bounces and bounces along.

306 Someone was on Twitter whining that you have to make sacrifices to buy a house:

even if young people actually *could* get on the housing ladder by foregoing coffee, holidays, netflix, brunches, books... why should we have to? why should we have to forego the lovely small things that make life bearable just to feel like we have somewhere stable to live?

Marissa D. Barrera, Senior Health Policy Advisor for Bernie Sanders and the Senate Budget Committee chimed in:

this is how I feel when people suggest having roommates as an adult,

So the new entitlement is the right to live in an expensive city without roommates?

I had roommates until I was 40 - I just accepted it as part of urban living, and almost invariably lived with people I got along with.

I didn't know that my human rights were being violated by having to share living spaces.

I competed as a kid, but never won anything. It is, however, a lovely thing to do as a touring hobby. You get to go to the most awesome places and it is quiet and pleasant. And if you keep moving, you really don't get cold.

And I stalled out, mostly due to geography and available time, just when I was on the precipice of getting into even better things like back-country skiing. Telemark skis, skins, etc. Did one high-altitude mountaineering ski adventure to a hut, was fantastic.

347 Not seeing any of the Olympics. X-c viewing has become immensely better thanks to the proliferation of cameras. Also, the commentators usually are actual experts, and there's much more meat than idiotic boring soap opera crap for children, which of course has long dominated coverage of "popular" events.

X-c including biathlon of course, which can actually be a very exciting race event to watch if covered properly, ski jumping, downhill, bobsled - only events I've ever watched.

Well, hockey, since it's often much better, and played on the big ice. Not just shoving and holding and dump-and-chase, which makes pro hockey mostly unwatchable dreck.

365 The incredible and AFAIK unique aspect of biathlon is the combination of the most aerobic activity there is (x-c skiing) with a task involving breath control and fine motor skills (target shooting).

It's of course an outgrowth of military training, with fast skis/equipment, and specialized rimfire rifles added/subbed in.

There was an effort a while back to get an "historic biathlon" thing going - general-purpose skis of the sort used by ski troops, service rifle calibers, steel profile targets at realistic ranges, engaged from concealment, all in a natural setting. Would have been strictly for geek/afficionados, but would have been fantastic.

When I lived in Maine we used to downhill ski at Sugarloaf which also has miles of groomed X country trails. I had only done it previously on ungroomed trails and it was hard work but on the groomed ones it was a lot of fun.

A Canadian judge issued a 10-day injunction Monday banning protesting truckers from honking their horns in downtown Ottawa, CBC reports.

"Tooting a horn is not an expression of any great thought I'm aware of," Justice Hugh McLean of the Ottawa Superior Court said. He also said the ban on honking would not rob demonstrators of their right to protest.

The big problem is that it's blocked on BOTH sides. So they can't fix it by just clearing the Canadian side; they would have to get the US government in on it, too. And while I don't doubt that the current regime is vicious enough to try it, I think they are too disorganized and chaotic to get around to figuring out what to do in time.

If it really is both sides, then you're looking at more than one mile, and four lanes across. Logistically speaking, assuming you can even find enough commercial tow truck drivers willing to turn against their brothers, then you're looking at several days to clear the deck, assuming folks were only kinda sorta dug in, not fullblown hardcore resistance.

Definitely a situation where "making the decision" to do something is divorced from the reality of what actually comes next.

The entire album, "Street Survivors," is an order of magnitude better than any of their early albums. They got very tight as a band and just better over time. Then came the crash and they sort of froze in development.

456 If the truckers are going to be ticketed for parking, why not just start a 5mph (7 kph in Canada, eh?) convoy, 24/7, looping around main arterials?

A 40 mile (64 km) of trucks would completely mess up any functioning city. How could it be illegal?

I have had several 6.2 Diesels apart. I don't remember how their oil screens were made, other than they were normal enough to be unremarkable.And many oil screens are made such that, if the screen becomes fully obstructed, suction deflects the screen, and allows unscreened oil to enter the pump. Not so, this one.

463 A Canadian judge issued a 10-day injunction Monday banning protesting truckers from honking their horns in downtown Ottawa, CBC reports. "Tooting a horn is not an expression of any great thought I'm aware of," Justice Hugh McLean of the Ottawa Superior Court said. He also said the ban on honking would not rob demonstrators of their right to protest. Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at February 08, 2022 12:01 AM (63Dwl)

Their system is different than ours, but I have a hard time figuring out who the defendant subject to the injunction would be, and obviously if there is such a person, whether that person had notice and an opportunity to be heard in court before his conduct being enjoined. That just fails due process coming and going.

I don't know, but northbound trucks were stacked up on I-15 for miles. Truckers on both sides of the border are being hurt by these mandates. I expect any truckers who really wanted to get through could have made a U-turn, and headed to one of the other crossings only a few miles away.

Denninger made a point this morning. Everything depends on trucks for at least the mile. Every damn thing comes in on trucks. If there were a general trucker strike, things wouldn't last a week. Food, fuel, every damn thing.

And makes a point I hadn't even thought of. Public water systems require a shit ton of sanitizing chemicals to treat the water with. That is delivered. By truck. Turn that off, and the water soon wouldn't be safe to drink in the major cities and suburbs.

Same way the sewage going out through the sewer system. Treatment plants requires flocculant chemicals to work. If they don't, the shit don't come out of suspension, and pretty soon you've got shit bursting out of the seams everywhere.

Without trucks bringing all this stuff in continuously, society will literally go to shit in short order.

Snacks? Hmmm...

Made jalapeno poppers Saturday. There was extra filling-- oh so good on saltines or Ritz!

Denninger makes a point. Without doing one single illegal act, the truckers alone could bring the tyrants to their knees.

Just stop working. That's all it takes.

537 And how our sterile society and now masks are thwarting our natural habits of developing resistance/communities.

That's how polio worked. Poor kids lived in dirty environments and tended to get polio young, when it was a mild disease. Middle class kids lived in cleaner environments, tended to get polio when they were older, when polio was much more serious.

538 Public water systems require a shit ton of sanitizing chemicals to treat the water with. That is delivered. By truck. Turn that off, and the water soon wouldn't be safe to drink in the major cities and suburbs.

Water systems know that, and tend to keep a fair amount of chemicals in reserve (in the West, you have to worry about earthquakes and such). You can also relax the water quality standards and stretch out your available supplies.

539 Point Roberts, Washington. Accessible by land only by traveling through a couple of miles of British Columbia.

More than a couple. A fair number of Vancouverites keep post office boxes there, so they can get US domestic mail shipments from Amazon and such. Gas is cheaper too.

540 I just watched the movie "Gorky Park." It was dumb, but William Hurt did smack a lady around and call her a whore, which was unexpected. C+, just for that surprise. A solid D-, if not for that weird scene.

543 Desperately need some Moron prayers tonight and in the days to come.

We had to cut our visit with our first grandbaby short because I got a call from my father, asking us to come help him in his final days.

He has prostate cancer, and he has continuously told us NOT to come, as he can take care of himself. I haven't seen him in person since the first day of COVID lock downs in March, 2020 - which also happened to be the day that my mother died from lung cancer.

I told Dad that when the end came, I would be with him through it all, advocating for the best care he can get, and - as with my mom I will stay with him in any facility if that ends up being necessary.

I'm having a REALLY hard time with this - we got home a couple of hours ago, and we are headed to his house tomorrow. I pray that he is able to stick around for a little while longer. I'm the last one left in our "original" family unit.

Thank you in advance.

559 I so identify with the 12 year old hacker. It's all about being ABLE to do things. At 13, I had access to my school's grading system - I could Ferris Bueller alter anyone's grades. Granted, it probably would have been detected at some point (probably a parent who called in to ask why her son (it was all boys) got such a better grade than expected). Anyway, my group got caught and punished - but I was at confirmation class that night, so I dodged the penalty. The Lord was looking out for me...

561 The Chinese girl, Yi.

She's YOUNG. Made mistakes. There's still time for forgiveness, and grace.

Bring her back, but yank her away from her parents, and the West Coast. Let her work for a year on the ranch in Corsicana. And send her to EVERY MoMeet in every State, and experience the love and comraderie. Cumulating in the Tx Mo Meet, with all the food and shooty goodness.

If after that, she wants to return to China? Fine. But with utter revocation of EVERY thing U.S.A., and no possible right of return. But till now, her upbringing has been a CA upbringing, and NOT a USA upbringing. We can fix that. We have the knowledge. We have the ammo. We have the technology. We have the Bacon and the BBQ. We have the booze.

563 Very noble, Jim SND.

But we don't have the luxury of time/resources for de-programming the commie idiocy, at least beyond our own families and children. Sad!

Can't save them all. Save the ones who are not so far gone.

Sorry, Bear. "Success is the Best Revenge."

You thought I was being merciful. My "mercy" is couched in Revenge. Without success, we send her back to Bejing. With success, we parade her as a trophy as to the Chinese failures.

Trophy-wise, I'd rather we send the Chinese a box with assorted Zukerberg parts inside, available for reassembly. With instructions by Ikea.

566 FWIW, Dad and I have a great relationship - we hated texted or talked to each other almost every day since Mom passed; he was just scared to death of COVID, so he hasn't wanted any personal contact.

I hate that damn disease for robbing me of time with my dad. I will never get that back.

Fighting this cold/flu thing still

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:26 AM (ueG+b)

574 Fever broke about midnite. Body aches before that were insane.

Not sure if it's a Lyme flare up or the covid crap. Just been hanging on for about 3 weeks now. It'sgetting old!


Hope you are well

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:28 AM (ueG+b)

575 I am fine, I'm sorry that you have been sick, you have enough on your plate.

Posted by: Debby Doberman Schultz at February 08, 2022 03:32 AM (a4EWo)

576 It's been one of those underlying things that doesn't really take you down but is super annoying!

Haven't seen my Hailey for a couple weeks because: being careful.

And, daughter tested positive last week

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:36 AM (ueG+b)

577 So not sure about this week either. Sad.

I feel horrible that I can't help them out. Used to be grandma could step in if mom was sick, now everyone is freaked out and isolates.

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:39 AM (ueG+b)

578 And great grandma (my mom) has missed out on 2 years of family because they all are worried she will get sick. That makes me sad and angry. She would've rather had them all around her and taken that chance. Now it's too late because she no longer remembers any of them.

(She has seen my kids and Hailey regularly, it's my siblings and family I'm bitching about)

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:44 AM (ueG+b)

579 Ok. Pity party over! Lol

Better get my coffee started

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:46 AM (ueG+b)

580 I admire you so much, MyLife, you just keep on doing so much for so many. Please know that I am thinking of you so often and praying for peace in your life. I hope that today will be a good day for you and that you will feel a whole lot better.

582 Much appreciated Debby!

And ditto with the admiring. You have as much or more on your plate, taking such good care of your hubby.

Honestly not sure I can do that on my end - seeing my future with Mr.I's issues and knowing what's ahead after all this with mom. It exhausts me thinking about it! Lol

Posted by: My Life is Insanity at February 08, 2022 03:56 AM (ueG+b)
