The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

‘I think that is a parent’s biggest fear – not being able to help their child when they need help,’ Amy Gordon


*

Quote II

“If protests are peaceful, yes. My house is -- there's protests three, four times a week outside my house. That's -- the American way to peacefully protest is okay. And I've been -- that's my wife, sorry. (Laughter) Maybe there's a protest outside.
But -- so -- so, as long as they are peaceful, that's -- that's OK with me.”Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

Not sure what the law says about that. However, it is clear that SCOTUS justices cannot be demonstrated against at their home.


*


Quote III

"This is disgusting,"Karolina Zikova of Chilliwack, B.C.


*


Quote IV

But we are $31 trillion in debt, and we are on the brink of disaster for this country. A lot of people don’t see it every day. Unfortunately, I have to get up every day and have to live it. It is reality that they are running this country in the ground. We have to take back the Senate. We have to take back the House. And in two more years after this, we’ve got to get this guy out of the White House because he is not running the show. Someone else is doing it because he can’t put two sentences together.”Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL)


Jeez, when & where have we heard this before? ***SNORT***

Later in The ONT we have a couple of Tonight Feel Good Stories of The Day. Here's another.

EDGEFIELD COUNTY, S.C. – Law enforcement authorities in South Carolina believe a man suffered a fatal heart attack while digging a grave and burying a woman he had just killed by strangulation.

Granted, in a court of law he's innocent until proven guilty. But this is not a court of law. It is The ONT. And I say the dirty scoundrel is guilty. Crickets from the left on vote fraud of course.

A Democrat County Supervisor in Buchanan County, Virginia has been indicted on 82 felony counts stemming from an alleged election fraud and corruption scheme following a 2-year state police investigation. Included in the charges filed against Trey Adkins, of the county’s Knox District, are 34 counts of false statements related to election fraud and 11 counts of absentee voting violations.
A grand jury handed down the indictments and the case will be prosecuted by the Commonwealth’s Attorney from nearby Russell County, Zack Stoots. According to the grand jury’s report, Adkins has relied on an illegal absentee vote harvesting scheme since he was first elected to public office in 2011, repeating the process in his 2015 and 2019 bids for re-election. All told, Trey Adkins will face 34 counts of False Statement – Election Fraud, 11 counts of Absentee Voting Procedure Violation, 8 counts of Public Embezzlement, 11 counts of Forgery of Public Record, 15 counts of Uttering Public Record, and 3 counts of Conspiracy to Make a False Statement – Election Fraud.

Do you need another reason to despise your government? Do you want to know what has our Founding Fathers spinning in their graves? Mandatory kill switches in your ride.

Joe Biden Is Threatening Our Freedom of Movement

The federal gov’t and silicon valley are looking to clamp down on your freedom of movement. Your ability to move about as you please does not fit with their goals for the future of our world. Automotive-related freedoms, including access to fuel, allow us to be free to move without the permission of silicon valley and the federal government. Automotive freedoms are not only hobby related; they are essential to preventing yet another step along the road to serfdom at the hands of woke corporations and federal bureaucrats.

Biden recently signed into law a requirement that all vehicles produced after 2026 be fitted with a remote kill switch. Electric vehicles are already equipped with this capability via internet-connected “superchargers.” These corporations can sell you a product for tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, then prevent you from using them. Worse yet, if the law is not challenged or repealed, these kill switches will have a “back door” that allows government agencies to shut your vehicle off remotely as well.

RIP Big Man Bob Lanier.

One of the NBA’s most notable big men, Bob Lanier, has passed away at the age of 73. Lanier, an eight-time All-Star, who was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992, died Tuesday following a short illness.

After being drafted first overall in 1970, Lanier played 14 NBA seasons, compiling averages of 20.1 points and 10.1 rebounds. His pro career began with the Detroit Pistons (1970-80), before finishing with the Milwaukee Bucks (1980-84). He still ranks third in Pistons history in both points and rebounds. Lanier was named MVP of the 1974 All-Star Game.

Though Lanier’s illness wasn’t specified, The Athletic reported in 2019 that the former center was being treated for a form of bladder cancer

If you want to go mountain biking at Oregon’s Mount Hood Skibowl, forget about it.

Oregon’s Mount Hood Skibowl announced it would shut down its summer mountain biking operations, following the first ‘serious bike claim’ in over 3 decades. A 2016 accident left the plaintiff of the lawsuit paralyzed from the waist down.

A man paralyzed in a 2016 mountain bike accident at Mount Hood Skibowl won an $11.4 million settlement. And the resort will suspend its mountain biking operations for the summer of 2022.

In a verdict Skibowl called “unprecedented,” Oregon judges awarded Gabriel B. Owens the settlement. Per documents submitted to the court, the accident occurred on Cannonball, a double black diamond trail, on July 31, 2016.

The documents say that the 43-year-old hit a rut and “lost control of his mountain bike, crashed, and slid downhill.” Then, his “torso forcibly struck a 4″x4″ solid wooden post” installed on the trail for signage.

It's on the internet. It has to be true. Amirite?

69 percent of staff sexual assault allegations with male prison inmates involve female correctional employees, Bureau Of Justice Statistics.

In juvenile facilities, in most-serious incidents of staff sexual misconduct, an estimated 91% of incidents involve only female staff, Bureau Of Justice Statistics.


The Bureau Of Justice Statistics of the US Department of Justice announced several years ago that the majority of staff involved sexual assault allegations with male inmates in prisons and jails involved female correctional officers or employees.

There are now two reports from the Bureau Of Justice Statistics essentially suggesting the same dynamic.

I love butter, sour cream, milk and other dairy products. Buzz off PETA.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals scolded billionaire business magnate Elon Musk for a tweet in which he declared that he had enjoyed drinking some chocolate milk.

"Chocolate milk is insanely good. Just had some," Musk declared on Monday.

But PETA pounced on Musk's seemingly innocuous tweet and asserted that consuming cow's milk is bad for the environment.

If you think your significant other is high maintenance. Think again.

The troubled relationship of Prince Albert of Monaco and his wife, the former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock, took another bizarre turn after it was claimed in a French gossip magazine that he is paying her an annual stipend of €12 million ($12.5 million) to continue to be his wife. The happiness of the marriage has long been a subject of speculation after Charlene allegedly tried to flee Monaco three times before the marriage 10 years ago, sought sanctuary in her native South Africa’s embassy in Paris, and wept openly on her wedding day.

Leader of feces-eating cult arrested after 11 dead bodies discovered during raid


Thai police raided the compound of a suspected cult leader in Chaiyaphum province on Sunday, discovering at least 11 bodies during the search. Local authorities were able to raid the compound after the group allegedly violated land encroachment laws and broke Covid-19 restriction laws.

Law enforcement had already been made aware of the group after allegations were shared that the community had been consuming the bodily fluids of its leader. After police made their way onto the camp grounds, police then discovered the remains of 11 bodies in coffins.

However, the group was only able to provide death certificates belonging to five of the 11 of the deceased. Police have ordered autopsies to be conducted to establish the causes of death of the bodies.

Sorry that you didn't get a real rose. Genius Award Winner.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — An embarrassing Mother’s Day mix-up at a local catholic school goes viral — and has many people cracking up. St. Anselm’s Catholic School in Parkwood held a flower sale for Mother’s Day and the moms ended up with quite a surprise.

The faux roses turned into a sexy, red thong.

Funny thing is, I'm on the wife's side on this one. I've followed this saga on Blindgossip.com (don't judge), and Albert has acted like a cad throughout the marriage. He should just divorce her so he can live his life, but for some odd reason he doesn't want to do that. He's fathered at least one child outside the marriage, and the mistress is very much in the picture.

123 Any GM vehicle equipped with OnStar has the kill switch baked into the cake. Many a police pursuit has been ended, when the P.D. gets the VIN from the license plate computer records. Then, (every 911 center has an 800 number to call OnStar), they read the VIN to the OnStar operator, who with a Supervisor's approval, can send the Kill Signal via satellite, which directly reaches the fleeing vehicle, and slows it's speed in increments, until it's motionless.

It does it in increments, leaving the engine running, by taking over control of the throttle, and using the ABS computer to control the brakes. This way, it's not a sudden loss of power or control, but the chase is soon OVER. Oh, and it unlocks the doors when a full stop is achieved.

Moral of the story? Don't own a GM product, as they all have OnStar as standard equipment.

169 >>>Jamaican singer-songwriter Bob Marley died aged 36. In July 1977, Marley was found to have a type of malignant melanoma under the nail of a toe, Marley's health deteriorated as the cancer had spread throughout his body.

Gotta be careful of those toe problems. Marley initially refused treatment of his cancer, so it spread.

Another toe death, from Silent Cal's Wikipedia page:
The Coolidges had two sons: John (1906–2000) and Calvin Jr. (1908–1924). Calvin Jr. died at age 16 from blood poisoning. On June 30, 1924 Calvin Jr. had played tennis with his brother on the White House tennis courts without putting on socks and developed a blister on one of his toes. The blister subsequently degenerated into sepsis and Calvin Jr. died a little over a week later. The President never forgave himself for Calvin Jr's death.

268 Bannon just had the author of Google Archipelago on ... the guy has a website, this short article is good.

The Great Reset VII: Capitalism for the Rich and Socialism for the Poor

"In fact, the whole objective of what has been called the Great Reset is the exact inverse of the formula 'socialism for the rich and capitalism for the poor.' The Great Reset represents an attempt on the part of a protected class of elite capitalists to form cartels and seek state favoritism to establish capitalism for themselves while effectively consigning the vast majority to socialism. This explains why capitalist corporations, in conjunction with propagandists at the World Economic Forum, are spouting social democratic socialist rhetoric and ideology and pushing a social democratic socialist agenda.

For melon, at least cantaloupe, the Mexican street vendor thing (sprinkle chile flakes on it) is super. I would think by now even in the east you can buy the stuff you sprinkle like this, I saw Trader Joe's now has their own house version (it's got mild chile and a few other flavors, forget what they are).

Best summer fruit salad ever, chunks of cantaloupe with lime juice, fresh mint, and hot chile flakes. If the cantaloupe's good it literally is the best fruit salad ever.

305 Born on this day: May 11, 1947 - Butch Trucks
American drummer Butch Trucks, The Allman Brothers Band who released the classic album Eat a Peach in 1972 and had the 1973 US No.12 single 'Ramblin Man'. Trucks died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on 24 January 2017, in West Palm Beach, Florida, at the age of 69. via thisdayinmusic.com

Huh, was not aware of him. Figured he was probably the father of Derek Trucks (hubby of Susan Tedeschi); just looked, and he was Derek's uncle and musical mentor.

I have never understood the concept behind cold coffee

Ha, I don't like hot coffee. Some years back I replaced drinking Coke with black coffee from a jug I keep in the fridge. Works for me. And the kill switch thing is yet another reason I only drive full-size V8 RWD from 20 years ago, beyond the reliability, cheap parts and ease of repair. Right about then is when cars went over the edge as far as being disposable transport units. I don't need 5-10 more MPG and road race handling or a monthly car payment.

324 Biden administration cancels Alaska oil and gas lease sale
https://t.co/WJoHVs9POk

The Biden administration has canceled one of the most high-profile oil and gas lease opportunities pending before the Interior Department. The decision, which halts the potential to drill for oil in over 1 million acres in the Cook Inlet in Alaska, comes at a challenging political moment, when gas prices are hitting painful new highs.

In a statement shared first with CBS News, the Department of the Interior cited a "lack of industry interest in leasing in the area" for the decision to "not move forward" with the Cook Inlet lease sale. The department also halted two leases under consideration for the Gulf of Mexico region because of "conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed lease sales."

Bull, followed heartily by, shit.

They've already closed down enough leases in order to make drilling untenable, so now they can claim there's no interest.

mandatory disclaimer - I know Zelensky is allied with the globalists, and this is most comparable to a fight between crime families - but tonight, apparently with a big boost from the new western supplied artillery, Russian forces appear to not only be losing, but they are being routed around the Kharkiv region, a city it was thought they were about to overrun. Some maps out say the reason is that the Russian rail supply lines are now within range of Ukrainian artillery, which have shut them down.

Russian units that were supposed to be advancing in the south are being rapidly re-directed to the northern Kharkiv region to try and stave off a total collapse.

If we do retake the government the answer isn't reducing the rate of growth of government. It isn't balancing the budget.

I know a well made iced latte or Vietnamese coffee for example can have a ton of flavor. And sometimes you just want something cold.

Lately I am down on cold brew coffee in general. To me it is missing something. And some drink their cold brew hot. Tastes very and often change. I used to disdain many things as a yute I enjoy now.

One was white one was black...so at least they were making sure they were diverse and pushing old, outdated stereotypes about who can and who can't be a serial killer.

389 Hubby had skin cancer under his fingernail - EXTREMELY rare, and if it gets "out", it is next to impossible to put into remission. Thankfully, his was caught while it was in situ.

He had a longitudinal discoloration under his nail for years; one day his mom and I noticed that it had turned darker. His doctor didn't like the fact that it had migrated to the cuticle (which is indicative of melanoma).

He's all better, thank goodness!

396 376, an old adage I agree with is most red wines are served too warm, and most whites served too cold.

Cellar temperature back in the day was much lower than modern room temperature

A simple idea is to put a red in the fridge for 20 minutes before you serve it. Take a white out of the fridge for 20 minutes before serving. Obviously there was is no set rule but that general idea is sound.

454 There is peace in those mountains. Like few other places. There is peace. Jim

This is exactly why I live in New Mexico. This land is church, which is a weird thing to say, but it's church and I get to go to church every morning I wake up here in New Mexico. I have never been able to say that about any place else I have ever spent time in or lived. And I can assure you I never expected this experience to happen here, but it did and the hair on the back of my neck stands up unexpectedly at times to remind me of this fact. New Mexico is a godly place if you are paying attention. Plus, we have some of the most epic criminals on the planet.

457 Otherwise, yeah. New Mexico was one of Creation's Masterpieces. Still could be, but you'd have to do a wholesale purge of Californiaites. Jim.

Mr, Jim. Your point is exactly on target. I would move to Texas in about 3 seconds if they'd get their property tax costs under control. I'm in the last quarter of my life and I now live within a cash flow world. New Mexico makes that work while Texas is a big problem even with all its massive and perfect advantageous situations like FJB flags. For the record, Arizona has been overrun with people from California while New Mexico, so far, has avoided that for the most part. From what I can tell California is moving to Texas. For now in New Mexico is afflicted with New Mexicans politically speaking.

Skin cancer under the nail bed of a dark-skinned individual is damn near impossible to detect, precisely because the "sign" is usually a dark streak under the nail itself. By the time it is detected - I'm guessing Marley had other symptoms which sent him to a doctor - it is usually too late to treat it successfully.

If you see black/dark discoloration on a nail which has jumped to the cuticle, RUN to see a dermatologist!

462 Jim, I hear ya about NM. I always liked that song "Santa Fe". Arizona has been shaky for a long time too. Where do the California's not go? The old school state to move to out West was Idaho. Conservatives were saying that in the seventies.

If I could just pick and choose it would be Wyoming or Montana. But I know that is easier said than done. My plan is for WV. When even their Dems are Maga, that is a tell. The states east of the Mississippi that are most surprising over the years are TN and FL. I would throw in OH as well for being a surprise.

Texas will always be Texas, the one state we can't lose or it is over. But like many deep red states, it has many angry libs. I doubt that can be said about WV.

465 The government debt will never be paid off. The dirty little secret - it was never intended to be paid off. Governments are different than you and me. For one thing, we don't have a printing press, we don't float bonds, and so on.

The debt doesn't matter. Now the leftists like to paint Dick Cheney as fiscally reckless, who famously said Deficits don't matter

What they don't tell you, is he was talking in reference to elections. As in "Deficits don't matter in presidential campaigns". Not that deficits don't matter. Because, they do.

WHEN, they reach the point that the issuing agency cannot pay the interest on the existing debt.

They have to pay that, or it gets dicey real quick. You think things are weird now? Whatever happens, it should be really wacky. I guarantee, you won't like it.

This is why they don't talk about deficits, or balance of payments, favorable trade balances, or even pass an actual budget. Half of them are too stupid to even opine, and the ones that are know better than to broach the subject.

Steal what they can, loot the Treasury, and then fly off to New Zealand or whatever when the balloon goes up, apparently. Something to watch

473 Lost in Space,

Saturday, Texas voters approved two bills which will serve to materially reduce the property tax burden.

And the Lt. Gov. has asked the leading tax cutting legislator to offer up more bills to further reduce and PERMANENTLY prevent later increases without State Constitutional Amendments. Which will never pass.

Texas is going in the right direction, here.

475 Quint is right about wine temperature. It's easy to see some basic guidelines, just look up on the web. Room temperature of a French country house, in the fall, is closer to high 50s than 68, this is the main error with reds.

But none of this is complicated or sophistimicated. If you like wine, take the 45 seconds required to download a serving temperature chart. It will pay off.

476 CT,

The first 24 hours is critical to decide if you're gonna bug out or hunker down. Using cash to get provisions during this time.
Community is critical. Going it alone will get you killed.
After the first 24 hours, things get progressively worse as people realize the SHF is real and panic begins.
At this point, bugging out is risky.
After a week, a month, good luck going anywhere.

Israel Keyes was one of the, if not the, most organized serial killers ever. He never would have been caught except the compulsion to kill, when opportunity presented itself, even though he knew he shouldn't do it, brought him down. He kidnapped, raped and killed a young woman who was working at a coffee shop kiosk in Anchorage; he killed where he lived and he knew that was a no-no. Committed suicide before trial so his secrets went to the grave. No one will ever know just how many he killed. Over-using a victim's credit card didn't help him evade the law, either.

If you read up on his planning, it was pretty unbelievable and why the killings would never have been traced to him. He didn't have a kill kit in his car, he had kill kits buried all over the country in plastic screw-top buckets, just waiting to be used. No one knows how many of those buried buckets are out there, either.

I don't even think the crew of Criminal Minds would have found him if he hadn't fucked up.

480 I like the desert Slickrock country of sandstone spires and mesa tops. Basically the 4 Corners region is fantastic.

In the Spring, which can be volatile. Not too sure about July or August.

And the wind any time. There's a reason the trees at the exposed ridges and mesa tops are no higher than 8 or 10 feet and all twisted and gnarly. It can go from absolute dead calm weather to gale force near hurricane winds in a matter of hours. Desert is a land of extremes and great beauty, too. Lots more plant life and animals than people think. Alpine tundra is boring compared to desert

They'll end up benefitting NEW buyers, not just grandfathered in owners. And this, as far into the future as can be guarded against a new Tx State Constiutional Amendment. Which ain't likely, even with a solidy (D) statehouse. People of Texas would never vote it in.

499 Morning, all!

The HOA business: When I lived in Denver, it seemed 3/4 of my coworkers lived in developments with them. One told me that it was a rule in his area that you couldn't have a swamp cooler projecting above the line of the roof. Excuse me? Swamp coolers (which really are pretty useless there) are those evaporative coolers that you find often instead of A/C in dry climates. They are more efficient when you put them up high. My reaction was, "If you pay for my A/C installation, then you have a right to complain about my swamp cooler."

My coworker was aghast at the idea of bucking the HOA. Looking back, I realize the mindset of "Must Obey" that led to COVID hysteria was already present in Denver.

Same here, Cap'n. My first time in Albuquerque-Santa Fe in 1992, I was instantly determined to live near mountains and in dry air. I moved to Denver and loved the climate and landscape. Since I came back to Da Swamp in '01, I've been miserable, and want OUT. I was getting ready to retire and move someplace I'd enjoy, and then -- as someone here called him -- the Broccoli-in-Chief has smashed things up so that I don't know if my retirement will be enough to live on.

HOAs were made for Kens and Karens. I do not understand why anyone would willingly join such a totalitarian group where they measure your lawn to make sure it's cut to the 'right' height. HOAs are so un-American. You own, and can do what you want with, your property -- sort of. Because only if Karen and Ken approve.

I knew a co-worker who bought a house in an HOA way back in the early '80s. We've been building those big subliminal messaging 'OBEY' signs* for a long time now. COVID-1984 put 'OBEY' over the top, along with mask and 'vaccine' mandates.

Where is his responsibility for choosing to perform a hazardous activity outside of his abilities? What was the basis of the verdict? That the ski slope was responsible for a 43 year old man making a decision to perform a risky activity, and not stopping him? The fuck? Now, because this guy wants to argue that he needed to be protected from himself, and that the ski slope had that duty to protect him from himself, nobody gets to ride anymore.

I'm sorry he got hurt, but fuck this guy.
