The Quotes of The Day


Quote I
“But, it was blatant and over-the-top which is usually a sign that it’s a joke. Here is another lefty with stage IV cancer of the funnybone. These people can spell ‘funny’ if you gave them the FU. Anyway, that guy’s a columnist for the Washington post, you couldn’t tell the difference between parody and reality.” Greg Gutfeld


Quote II

"Today is really something that is impacting our entire city, our community. It's a tragic situation. But then, it's another senseless crime that happened in our community." Chief Leronne Armstrong


Quote III

“The Republican campaign class is a lot less socially conservative than Republican voters,” They are going to expect the worst." Unnamed GOP strategist


Quote IV

“The event followed the normal agenda of leftists this Holiday season, warning students not to dress as anything that could come across as racially or culturally insensitive. But the more interesting idea here is that TikTok itself is spreading racism.” Campus Reform Senior Correspondent Addison Pummill

A "Let's Go Brandon Store" popped up. And it opened in the darnedest of places, Massachusetts.

A "Let's Go Brandon" store has just opened up in North Attleborough, Massachusetts, selling merchandise with the anti-Biden slogan.

If this is true, our country is protected by fucking idiots.

Donald Trump shredded General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in a speech at his Mar-a-lago resort in Florida.

The event was hosted by hosted by Turning Point Action, a C4 affiliate of Turning Point USA.

At the event, the 45th President of the United States was talking about Milley and the withdrawal from Afghanistan when he called him a “f**king idiot.”

When will NYC provide safe drugs? They now operate a clean injection site.

“All right, of course all you wire fans know that as Hamsterdam, in the real world it’s known as a safe drug consumption site, and New York City is the country’s first city to offer a safe haven so drug users can consume illegal drugs safely. The sites are meant to prevent overdoses, reduce drug use in public places and promote safer injection practices that reduce the spread of diseases.”

Hopefully their parental rights were terminated. Or this poor child will never stand a chance.

A Florida woman’s wild sentencing hearing on child abuse charges ended with her husband being arrested as well.

Crystal Ashley Carrasquillo, 24, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Friday after pleading guilty to one count of aggravated child abuse in August. She was originally charged and arrested in 2018.

According to a news release by Twentieth Judicial Circuit State’s Attorney Amira Fox, the defendant will also be forced to undergo a mental health evaluation and complete follow-up treatment.

Trial in the case was previously scheduled for late August of this year when Carrasquillo instead opted out of her right to a trial by jury.

When you are right. You are right. Never apologize.

Professor Tells Whiny Students to Grow a Thicker Skin — They Don't Take It Well

Last September, a drama teacher met two black theater students in a Coastal Carolina University classroom. The students wanted to bring back segregation, AKA: They wanted to do their drama, with anyone who wasn’t white. The teacher dutifully wrote the dictated names of non-white students on a whiteboard. When the teacher left, the names were still on the board.

Is Elon Musk a bigot? He needs to remember who gave tax breaks on those damn EVs.

Elon Musk recently suggested that anyone over 70 years old should be barred from running for political office.

In a tweet on Thursday, the SpaceX and Tesla founder said: "Let's set an age limit after which you can't run for political office, perhaps a number just below 70."

While no specific lawmaker was mentioned in the tweet, the current president, Joe Biden and his predecessor, Donald Trump are both over the age of 70. And Senator Bernie Sanders, who Musk has previously squabbled with, is 80 years old.

The answer isn't an age limit, it is Term Limits.


She fought the Cookie Police. And lost.

I Battled Rhode Island's Cookie Police

Friends raved when I started making hand-decorated sugar cookies for my children’s birthday parties in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. They often would tell their friends about me, and soon other parents were asking me to bake for their events. Before long a small business emerged in my kitchen. I called the enterprise A Spoonful of Sugar. As a stay-at-home mom with four children under the age of 12, I had limited opportunities for income. So, the revenue proved valuable.


Wisconsin farmers and maple syrup producers also face odorous illogical laws. As Ronald Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’ ”

A trampoline park? What could go wrong? This is why we can't have nice things.

TAMPA, Fla. - Parents who take their kids to a trampoline park in Tampa want to know how a fight turned into a massive brawl involving hundreds of children.

"This escalated very quickly," according to parent Sandra Bermudez, who started recording on her cell phone when the fight broke out. "They were all having fun and then when this lady said, ‘Oh my God,’ and I turn around to look, they're fighting on the right side."

I believe deterrence is needed. However, I would be the criminal after I halted them with an acute case of lead poisoning. Smash and grab looters are after legal pot in California.

The smash-and-grab crimewave sweeping the country has spiraled out of control in the Bay Area with emboldened thieves specifically targeting cannabis dispensaries over the past month.

The cumulative losses in products for the over 25 shops hit primarily over the weekend before Thanksgiving in the northern California area are estimated at over $5 million according to The San Francisco Chronicle.

Once again Gary Sinise's charitable actions is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

You might recognize actor Gary Sinise from his incredible roles in Forrest Gump, The Green Mile, and of course CSI: NY. When Gary is not working in front of the camera, he is very passionate about honoring and helping military veterans and their families. In 2011, he started the Gary Sinise Foundation with a goal to “entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.” He started a program through his foundation called the Snowball Express which is specifically designed to provide free trips to children of fallen soldiers.

9 The cookie story is sad and totally believable. I used to buy butter and occasionally raw milk from an Amish store in a town up north from here. The state came in and shut them down, for not having all the sciencey stuff and state approvals. So now, I do like everyone else and go to the guy's house to buy butter and occasionally raw milk. He does just as much business now, maybe more.

We do sort of have term limits, it's called the human life span. But, yes, term limits should be codified and passed into law. Just need to figure out how, since those that benefit from the current system aren't going to help.

98 I used to be anti term limits on the principle that the voters shouldn't have choices taken away from them and that they could always just stop voting for someone when they were tired of him. That principle still seems right to me but I have to admit that it just doesn't work out that way in real life. The advantages of incumbency are just too great for someone who is willing to take advantage of them. Term limits are an acceptable price to level the field.

Ohio has had term limits on their Statehouse Reps and State Senators since 1995. The great "outing" of Democrats that year swept the Republicans into power in the Legislature. Enacting term limits, and the legislature has remained Republican since then. No more crony stay forever Republicans. Our local State Rep, Larry Householder, tried to get back in after his three 2-years terms (and he was a crook) and got thrown out for his shenanigans with the subsidy legislation to keep 2 nuke plants open in Ohio.
The legislature has been consistently MORE conservative than governors (Kasich and Dewine especially), and largely kept them under control.

159 I haven't kept track but I think there are no examples where term limits cured any of the pathologies.

It seems like a good idea when you consider an awful politician that's been around forever. But it doesn't get rid of the infrastructure (legit or otherwise) that put and kept him in office. And there doesn't seem to be a shortage of "he seems nice" radicals when, for example, George Soros decides to fill AG spots across the country.

160 Ohio has had term limits on their Statehouse Reps and State Senators since 1995. The great "outing" of Democrats that year swept the Republicans into power in the Legislature. Enacting term limits, and the legislature has remained Republican since then. No more crony stay forever Republicans. Our local State Rep, Larry Householder, tried to get back in after his three 2-years terms (and he was a crook) and got thrown out for his shenanigans with the subsidy legislation to keep 2 nuke plants open in Ohio.

185 Usually it ends up costing more. Otherwise there wouldn't be a market for "contractors."

The Federal government doesn't hire contractors directly, they do it through "contracting companies". Technically, the contractor works for the "contracting company", not the Feds, which is why they don't count against the hiring limit.

I'm sure there is no graft in hiring contracting companies. OTOH, you can actually get rid of contractors, as opposed to Federal workers, who are basically unfirable once they have completed their one-year probationary period.

If gov. officials did not have qualified immunity, they would think twice and never allow "safe" drug use sites. They would be too concerned about their asses being sued for contributing to the death of so many people who use drugs at these "safe" sites.

This seems obvious to me, but think about that - If there were consequences for their actions, I am sure they would be different. They do this shit because they are above the law.

"The approving body had to vote in legislation with at least a super majority; however, the disapproving body could cancel ANY legislation with a 50% negative vote!"

The Biden administration is set to announce this week that US government officials will not attend the 2022 Beijing Olympics, according to CNN. President Joe Biden said in November that they were "considering" a diplomatic boycott of the Beijing 2022 Olympics over China's human rights records. The move would keep US officials from the Games, but not the athletes. In a press conference, Press Secretary Jen Psaki added that the US has "serious concerns" about alleged human rights abuses in China.

The Israelis are now openly suggesting that the US hit Iran militarily - after all, Brandon has said that "Iran will never get a nuclear weapon on my watch".

The Israelis know that's not going to happen, so they are readying their own strike plans.

I don't think either age or term limits are needed. Just make it such that anyone who runs for, or is elected to, political office is barred from increasing their personal wealth during that time. In addition, they and everyone in their family will have to provide their tax returns to the public every year.

Also, get rid of lifetime benefits from elected positions. These are supposed to be civil servant positions. Yet they have it setup where they get paid by the taxpayer for life just for winning an election. No healthcare, no retirement fund. Everyone simply gets a salary for the years in office and that's it.

304 I guess it's good that they're calling out China, but...the big punishment is that our politicos aren't going to attend an event that probably won't have spectators anyway because of the coof-of-the-month club? Seems kind of weak IMO, especially in light of some of the epic LOLGFs in Olympic history.

That being said, in total fairness to the Biden regime, they may have undone most of Trump's policies but the tariffs remain. I think deep down they, like most Beltway insiders, know that something had to be done about China but nobody had the stones to be the guy to do it and take the blowback.

Nothing wrong with term limits. The job of President is term-limited, after all. Term limits might help get rid of the truly greedy ones, who, knowing they are term-limited, push their graft so hard they get caught and convicted. If they know they may be there for life, they can be a more subtle with the graft.

320 Also, get rid of lifetime benefits from elected positions. These are supposed to be civil servant positions. Yet they have it setup where they get paid by the taxpayer for life just for winning an election. No healthcare, no retirement fund. Everyone simply gets a salary for the years in office and that's it.

Posted by: Clyde Shelton at December 05, 2021 11:04 PM

Also, make it such that every elected official has to abide by the same policies as everyone else (i.e. Obamacare, kids have to go to public schools, etc.). Or setup something like what Bill Ford, Jr, did when Ford Motor Company went through their bankruptcy in 2002 or so. He went without a salary and only had shares in the company stock. So he would only make money if the company did well.

Same goes for elected officials. Set it up such that if the economy is not meeting certain targets, they don't earn their salary.

321 I must thank the Horde. I made a prayer request for a decent night's sleep and it worked! Mostly.
I slept largely without interruption either from my shoulder pain or unwanted massive throbbing hard-ons but unfortunately I had a rather vivid dream about the most beautiful woman I ever met.

How is that unfortunate?

Because in my dream she spent the entire time ripping out my heart, stomping on it and grinding it right into the ground. It was brutal. I don't think I've ever been defenestrated in a dream before.

So I'd kind of like a do over. So, if you'll pray with me again...

Dear LAWD! I pray for one night of decent, mostly uninterrupted sleep free from pain, massive throbbing hard-ons or dreams of the most beautiful woman in your fair creation. Instead, for a few hours, let me embrace the sweet, cold embrace of blackest oblivion.
In JAY-ZUS name we pray,
Amen! Awoman! Agenderfluiddragonkin!

339 Caesar, not what I was talking about. Basically just a very crude measure - when enacted, where have term limits altered the trajectory of a state or other jurisdiction? As I said, lots of wheels turning here, so hard to isolate the impact of different factors. I was just unaware of any place that term limits had had their clearly desired effect. Voters can impose term limits any time they wish. They don't - disastrously, as we're seeing.

Bozo offered OH as an example. He may be right. But not gonna yank the taffee over this very much. Just was pointing out my own, possibly erroneous or dated, impression about term limits.

And the SB 5 thing in OH points us back to the problem - the voters. In CA, Ahnuld went through something similar. Initial effort to do good important stuff failed - because voters wouldn't step up - and he was a disaster thereafter.

Given the huge economic damage done by the administration's policies and body English even with the tariffs in place, there might be some horse-holder at the CEA or elsewhere who's warned that reversing the tariff accomplishments might bring noticeable additional pain.

It's hard to believe but between 1789 and the 1880s the average length of service for a Senator was only 4 years. Yep, most of them never made it to the six years. After 1880 to about 1950 the length of service averaged 8 years then around 1952 it started steadily increasing to about 16 to 18 years of service.

Blame the change in the economy from mfg driven to service, blame the move to the left in elite education, for whatever reason, the GOP does not want to pursue nationalist policies that benefit average people because corporations do not like those barriers to their profits including selling out to China.

The Dems have a similar problem except in reverse, their base is more left than the party apparatus.

I apologize if that comment of mine left you with the impression that I think you are asking social conservatives to abandon their principals.

I don't think that's what you propose.

What you, in my view, sometimes propose is that we must continue to vote in droves, that it is still the best option available. I agree with that.

But I can no longer cast lesser-of-two-evils ballots.

After 1880 to about 1950 the length of service averaged 8 years then around 1952 it started steadily increasing to about 16 to 18 years of service.

I attribute the increase in service to be advent of televised mass media.

392 BC - There is a nuance to my position that a lot of people have missed.

I advocate for strategic voting, which means NOT casting a lesser of two evils vote. Given the right circumstances, I think voting in a hard core leftist is the right thing to do, if it is needed to get a RINO out.

What I don't think people should do is abandon their ability to vote period. Because the alternative to voting will be subjugation or violence.

Posted by: Braenyard

The only help Israel would need from the Gulf states is for them to sit on the sidelines. Iran's military won't stand up for long in a head to head with Israel. Israel has different rules of engagement than the rest of th world. Restraint, at least initially, is not in their dictionary. The mullahs know this. Even a limited duration war would severely damage their political power. Thus their desire for the WMD. That and it probably fits in to their twelth Imam BS somehow.

Worse, they will cast an absentee ballot in your name. That is one of the dirty secrets from 2020, the Dems enabled by real time voting history data, essentially 'knew' which voters were unlikely to actually vote so they voted for them. In some cases, those voter registrations were 'floaters' who had no existence in reality but got ballots mailed to them. Those are the addresses where sometime dozens, even hundreds were mailed to.

Speaking of acting out in your sleep. My father once attacked a coffee table one night. He was asleep on the couch, dreamed someone was breaking in the house, and he had to jump them.

He jumped the coffee table. He was banged and bruised. The a few weeks ago, my mother did something similar. She was a asleep in her rocking chair with a little step stool thing in front that uses to prop up her feet. She dreamed she was being attacked, and started kicking. She ended up cutting her shin by kicking at the stool.

>>>Coronaviruses circulate in humans all the time. Four of them, to be specific. Two are in the same family as Covid-19; they are beta coronaviruses, as is Covid. One of them, OC43, is believed to have caused a pandemic -- in the 1890s. Why doesn't it now? Because it circulates all the time and most kids wind up getting it very young, since the circulation pattern suggests roughly a four year rotation. That's right -- by the time you're eight you've lived through two rotations through the population of this, and the other three, circulating Coronaviruses.

I intuited at the beginning of this that C-19 is here to stay. Everyone will get it. That is why the only thing that matters is how much we are willing to give up in view of those facts.

561 Posted by: Julius Caesar at December 06, 2021 12:48 AM (csEWM)

Caesar got his start as a Marian. Gauis Marius was a threat in a sense to the old Roman republic but...not really in an ideological sense. He was incredibly popular and was elected to the office of consul 7 times which was...bad form. He also was willing to relax rules around citizenship that the rest of the Roman elite were dubious about.

But...they'd done all the before earlier with the Latins and other groups anyway.

When Caesar came into his own he wanted to be the top dog in Rome - but the opportunity for him to become dictator wasn't an ideological quest - it was, like Marius before him, the result of a very talented and ambitious man hitting the limits of how far you could go in Rome.

Augustus then later subverted the Republic to become dictator himself, but by that point the Republic was done anyway.

Government positions, you were drafted. So, like Jury Duty, your number comes up to head the Water Works or whatever. By most accounts this was a good system. They also had the Death Penalty as punishment for malfeasance in office.

We're in that awkward stage where all the old systems are in place, but many of the officeholders are just pod people and grifters looting the Treasury and letting the enemy through the gates. Without sound money, and a certain frugality of spending, it always turns out that way I expect.

Disagree. Caesar wanted the power Sulla had. Lifetime Dictatorship. The ability to transform the government without any legal restriction.

If that is not ideological, I am not sure what is.

The same can be said of Sulla and Marius by their desire to turn back the clock (sulla) and subvert (marius) the System. Both went outside the system to do what they did as well.

605 Nobody had the coursge to explain that nobody can stop a virus, not even governments.

Over half the population say, were going to get exposed to the virus, sooner or later. The idea with "2 weeks to flatten the curve" was to prevent a huge slug of people coming down with it at the same time. Maybe 40 percent or so would actually contract it. Again, no way around it.

But then all the Karens and assorted nutbars somehow got the notion that they had to prevent exposure for the rest of their life and started microwaving their mail and spraying lysol on their groceries, and living in their basement till a vaccine was developed. Only then could we get back to "normal". They believed, and maybe still believe, that actually contracting the Chicom flu is an automatic death sentence.

NIH Collins and Fauci knew pretty much exactly what happened very early on because they funded the damn research. So one of the earliest narratives was not to blame China as racist which served to shut off inquiry about gain of function research funded by NIH and other govt agencies.

621 ..kinda what I was wondering. Hey, I looked up those yes welders. Wasn't overly thrilled. Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at December 06, 2021 01:22 AM (VwHCD)

Well, I guess I'll just wait n' see how Galveston College's welding program does with the half-dozen they've already ordered. Hell, I've even got an invite to test drive the things on some practice stock, so I might be able to give a report, even without buying one, first.

Trying to build up a basic Welding Center with stick, TIG, MIG and gas, well.. one does tend to look to find a bargain where one can, yes? (swidt?) lol

624 Regarding telling the American people what was what, the IC and Defense has basically become a black box that only releases what it wants to release. Complicity and policy failures are not what they want to release. The funding for gain of function and other disturbing biological research conducted by China did not only come from NIH but some other govt. agencies including DOD as well.

I think doctors are intentionally muddling the waters with regards to terminology. This is a therapeutic treatment to manage symptoms of a disease- not a vaccine.

I would not recommend it from what I have seen. She has superior immunity than the vaxx right now anyway unless immuno suppressed.

This disconnect really bothers me. I'm just a person with a layman's understanding of medical issues and when did actually contracting and surviving a virus not give one immunity? Why would one be vaxxed for something they already had? Doctors should know better.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at December 06, 2021 01:37 AM (IDhUW)

628 Yeah, the advice to get "vaccinated" after having acquired and recovered from the Chicom flu is just one of many, many bizarre details in a global nightmare.

So much contradictory and farcical bullshit being peddled these days. They have broken government, science, industry, and medicine, and the military has a sucking chest wound.

I'm sure everything will be fine, somebody will do something to fix it. Real Soon Now.

Well what I don't like is it don't come with any consumables. It don't even come with a tig torch, or regulator, and it can't do aluminum. The other thing is it has no pedal control for the tig. There are machines out there that come with all the goodies for not a whole lot more, so you gotta weigh the price of those compared to the yes with then having to by all the stuff. There are some other issues that might make the learning curve a bit steeper for a novice. The one interesting thing is it's a lift tig, not a scratch start.

632 625, Due to being a sherpa to two elderly relatives through the medical go around for the last three months, I have lost a lot of respect for the medical system as none of them seem to have a systems perspective and I have seen both get malpractice. In one case, no administration of a vital heart regulatory drug for three days because cardiology did not talk with the pharmacy. That pharmacy did not stock the name brand drug but did not tell the doc that they did not dispense that medication. Relative went into afib as a result just as we were getting ready to leave hospital. This one also had an earlier botched surgery at that hospital that had to be fixed on this second visit.

The other had a severe infection that was untreated for weeks in the hospital despite being shown on blood tests and mri/cat scans.

What if I told you at the beginning of this century that the IC built a billion dollar hq from leftover residual black book (where they do not list line items) funding programs and did not tell Congress about it. Congress only found out after it was built.

How much DoD/IC money has officially gone down a black hole? No accounting for it at all, it just disappeared. It's trillions over the years, I think.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion (Mzdiz) at December 06, 2021 01:56 AM (Mzdiz)

637 Berserker.. yeah, I saw that stuff in the reviews, too.

But what I didn't see, was links or references to the systems that DO come with all that stuff, or at least pointers to where to look. So, where to look?

The reviews I did like, were as to the quality of the weld output and such. What the machine does, it does seem to do very, very well. But yeah, I'd like also to be able to do the aluminum, as I have several projects in mind for such.

Yeah, the no aluminum thing is kind of a deal killer for me. It does seem to lay some nice welds. I was on their site and with the discounts its only $352, and I looked up the prices of their tig torch, and that was only $50, so that puts you at $400 with the torch, and I think the regulator was under $40, so I guess it's still cheap enough. It has no provisions for a spool gun though. I guess its an ok machine, but its not a complete machine because of the no aluminum thing.

Feel free to email me with any suggestions as to a Complete Machine. I'm not adverse to the Buy Once, Cry Once paradigm. Gas-wise, I've got a complete Oxy/Acl set, with hoses, tips n' cutting torch, but I'll still be needing to buy a set of medium sized bottles. Mini-plumbers bombs are too small, and I'll never really need the 5' tall full sized tanks.

Well I'm still researching that myself. I'm kind of an eccentric asshole, so I would rather have a machine for mig, and one for tig, rather than a do-all type machine. It just seems that things work better when they are made to one thing and do it great. Still, I would actually like to find the ultimate multi-process welder just to save room.

Maybe then look price-upward in the Yes lineup? The machine I'd mentioned seemed to be about 1/4 to 1/3 up the path of their welder foodchain. Maybe we should start at the most pricey, and work our way down until the price/performance delta is crossed?
