The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Madrid isn’t going to switch off. That generates insecurity and scares off tourism and consumption. It brings darkness, poverty and sadness, even as the government covers up the question of what savings it will apply to itself.” Isabel Díaz Ayuso, the populist, rightwing president of the Madrid region.


Quote II

Let's be clear: The spirit behind "pay it forward" is commie drivel. It's a "we're all in this together, so let's be a community and share the burden equally" kind of experiment which – far from altruism – displays the worst possible kind of selfish, preening bullying under the guise of charity. Larry O'Conor


Quote III

“You think I hate gay people and what you’re really seeing is that I’m jealous of gay people. I’m jealous, and I’m not the only black person that feels this way … Gay people are minorities, until they need to be white again.” Comedian Dave Chappelle

Later in the broadcast The Genius Award Winner is revealed. This dame didn't lose by much.

TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A woman with an open bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey in a bag was arrested for driving a golf cart on Florida’s busiest interstate while drunk, according to an arrest report.

The 58-year-old woman was arrested Saturday night on the shoulder of Interstate 95. She is now facing misdemeanor charges of disorderly intoxication in a public place and resisting an officer without violence.

All good things must come to an end.

DARK DAYS Days of our Lives is LEAVING NBC after 57 years in historic TV shake-up- and fans are furious

DAYS of our Lives on NBC has come to an end after 57 years.

Fans have become furious after it was revealed the long-running soap opera would be leaving its daytime spot on the network in a major shake-up.

My Mom loved that soap.


And moar Hollywood news, No one cared when Demi Lovato switched her pronouns, now she is changing them back. Yawn. Translation: Dammit!!!!!! I want attention now!!!!! Wah-wah

Superstar Demi Lovato finally explained why she’s decided to go back to using “she/her” pronouns after previously announcing that she was “non-binary” and identified as “they/them.”

During the 29-year-old singer/actress’s recent appearance on the “Spout Podcast,” Lovato talked about the decision to go back to identifying as “she/her,” and said it was because lately the performer’s been feeling more of the feminine vibe, Entertainment Tonight reported in a piece published Tuesday. In May, fans noticed Lovato had suddenly added “she/her pronouns” to her Instagram page

Guns don't kill people. Living breathing scum kill people.

A worker at a McDonald’s was shot and critically wounded in a reported fight with customers over cold French fries.

The employee, Matthew Webb, 23, was confronted by a 40-year-old female customer at the fast food restaurant on Fulton Street in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood around 7pm on Monday, police sources told the New York Daily News.

In the midst of the dispute, the woman was speaking with her 20-year-old son, Michael Morgan.

‘The mom complained that her fries were cold,’ a source told the New York Post. ‘The mom was on FaceTime with her son, and he heard the dispute between her and the clerk. The son and the clerk got into a dispute inside, and it went outside.’

I opine that most legislation that is introduced is unnecessary. I think Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is onto something with this bill.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) introduced a bill this week that would ban the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from purchasing any more ammunition, after having already reached an alarmingly high amount.

As reported by Just The News, Gaetz’s bill, the “Disarm the IRS Act,” would forbid the tax-collecting agency from buying ammunition after the agency has already acquired up to 5 million rounds. In 2022 alone, the agency has purchased at least $725,000 worth of ammo.

“I’m not against stockpiling ammunition,” Gaetz said, “but you shouldn’t have to be a D.C. accountant to do it; you ought to be a mechanic in Pensacola.”

Gaetz went on to say that the Biden administration wants to “disarm Americans, open the border, empty the prisons,” and “still collect your taxes,” and may use the massive stockpile of ammunition to do it by force.

There have always been "Scam Artists". And the their ingenuity is impressive. That being said: Do banks have any obligation when their customer is scammed?

The Caller ID said “PNC Bank.”

It was the bank’s fraud prevention department, Toni Landi was told.

The caller said there was a Zelle transfer of $1,000 to someone in Texas, but the charge appeared unusual and raised a red flag. Did Landi make the transfer, the caller asked.

“I said no. He spoke quickly, succinctly and urgently, and he sounded like other professionals I had spoken with at PNC,” Landi said, noting she’s received calls from the bank in the past about potentially fraudulent activity. “I thought this was a legitimate call.”

An EV Jag? Virtue signaling comes with a steep price.

An electric Jaguar I-Pace vehicle caught on fire and burned to ash in Florida, but the vehicle wasn’t in a car wreck like many notorious Tesla fires — it was simply charging in the owner’s garage.

The electric car is the fourth known I-Pace battery fire that seemingly started on its own — a concerning amount of fires, given that there are so few of these vehicles on the road — according to a report by Electrek.


When there is an EV pickup truck where I can tow a boat, camper or all-terrain vehicle 400 miles and I can refuel it in under 10 minutes. Please let me know.

Share of U.S. EVs, by state


California — no surprise — leads the U.S. in electric vehicle ownership, accounting for 39% of all EVs registered nationwide.

Look more closely at the numbers, however, and it turns out EVs represent less than 2% of all vehicles on the road in the Golden State.
Reality check: We're a long way from a "tipping point" for electric vehicles. In fact, the EV revolution has barely begun in the U.S. and it's playing out in super-slow motion — even in places where plug-in cars make the most sense.

Why it matters: Automakers are pouring billions of dollars into electric vehicle development in the face of urgent warnings about climate change. But with more than 278 million cars, SUVs, and pickups overall on U.S. roads, the historic shift away from gasoline will take years, if not decades, to play out.


And one more story about EVs. This from Nissan and Japan.

The circular economy is coming to electric vehicles for both environmental and financial reasons, as a leading Japanese automaker plans on starting a rental scheme for its battery-powered cars.

Drivers interested in making the switch to electric will soon have another option to do so in Japan, as Nissan—manufacturer of the Nissan Leaf, one of the earliest and bestselling electric cars on the market—is preparing to launch a new rental plan for its EVs, the Financial Times reports.

How will it work?
Nissan’s initiatives will operate as a subscription scheme.

Customers will sign up on a monthly basis, but Nissan hopes that they will rent electric cars for years before returning them, according to the FT.

I'm old fashioned and I believe in good old fashioned names. People Are Naming Their Babies After These Destinations - How long before we meet a kid named "The Shitter" or "The Recycling Center?>


The aughts were, among other things, peak baby name weirdness. I’m talking Apple, Bluebell Madonna, Birdie and Petal Blossom Rainbow. Of course, there hasn’t exactly been a shortage of eccentric names born of the 2020s either, thanks to the likes of Dream, Thunder, Raddix and X Æ A-Xii.

And now another trend as emerged: people naming their babies after their favorite destinations. Per a new study from the luggage storage service Bounce, “One baby-naming trend that is particularly popular is travel-related baby names, which sees parents naming their child after a favorite holiday destination, honeymoon spot or even the city where they were conceived.”

Now, there’s still something about naming your kid after the country or state where they were conceived that feels a bit…off. I’d venture to guess that it would be mildly disconcerting for most to have to find out that they’d been named after the place they’d been conceived. (Though, to be fair, it’s probably no less weird than naming them after your favorite equation. Or the weather. Or something you quite literally made up altogether.)

Can someone answer the following: What does a country have to do to go from "Pariah" to valued partner?

The Biden administration approved a sale of Patriot missiles and support equipment to Saudi Arabia Tuesday, overriding prior campaign pledges to end arms transfers to the “pariah” country over human rights issues.

President Joe Biden notified Congress of the $3 billion sale the day after the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen vowed to extend a UN-brokered ceasefire with the Houthi rebel group for two months, CNN reported. Saudi Arabia has been accused of striking civilian targets and contributing to one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises, leading Biden in 2019 to denounce the country’s human rights practices and vow to suspend arms transfers that support offensive Saudi campaigns.

Once again the Russian military continues to demonstrate its incompetence. Russia Accidentally Blows Up Own Supply Train, Soldiers 'Scattered In Panic'

An accidental fire may have caused a train to blow up at a Russian railway station in Ukraine's mostly-occupied Kherson region over the weekend, according to Ukrainian intelligence.

Russian forces set up a smoke screen at the Kalanchak railway station Sunday to mask the unloading of train cars carrying military equipment and ammunition, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence's Main Directorate of Intelligence (GUR) said in a statement Tuesday.

The screen was also deployed supposedly to protect the train cars against strikes from U.S.-supplied M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, also known as HIMARS.

An explosion occurred in the work area at around 11:20 a.m. local time that day, and the rail convoy immediately began to move in the direction of the annexed region of Crimea, according to the GUR.

"The [Russian] personnel scattered in panic," the intelligence agency said.

Born on this day: 3 Aug 1926
American singer Tony Bennett who had the 1955 UK No.1 single 'Stranger In Paradise' and the 1965 UK No.25 single 'I Left My Heart In San Francisco'. In 1998, Bennett made an unlikely but highly successful appearance on the final day of a mud-soaked Glastonbury Festival in the UK dressed in an immaculate suit and tie, his whole set on this occasion consisting of songs about the weather. Bennett and Amy Winehouse recorded the duet 'Body and Soul' in March 2011 - the final recording made by Winehouse before her death on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27. When the song charted on the Billboard Hot 100 it made Bennett, at age 85, the oldest living artist ever to chart on the Hot 100. via thisdayinmusic.com

I'm not a fan of spiders. However, I'm not a Genius Award Winner.

A man suspected of starting a wildfire in Utah told authorities that he was using a lighter to try to burn a spider.

After he was arrested, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office found drugs and paraphernalia in his backpack. He was booked in jail.

The wildfire, which has burned 40 acres, began around 5pm, according to Utah Fire Info.

The fire was started near a trailhead along the border of the towns of Provo and Springville.

This is a skill these children may need in a few years. A skill that doesn't require a computer or a cellular phone. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

For contestants in Washington Park’s inaugural Shark in the Park Cardboard Boat Race, the goal was simple: row your boat from one end of Washington Park Pool to the other.

But that’s easier said than done when your boat is constructed of nothing more than cardboard and duct tape – lots and lots of duct tape.

On Saturday, spectators stood alongside the pool to watch as children, teens and adults paddled and splashed their homemade cardboard vessels to the finish line.

In all, a total of eight boats participated in three divisions: 12 and under, male, and female. Some boats remained intact for multiple races.

Sure, participation was low. But enthusiasm was high.

“It was exactly what I imagined: the parents and fans running down the poolside cheering for those kids. It wasn’t a huge turnout, but the crowd was great. I was impressed with how into it they were,” said DeAnna Martin, Washington Park director and the mastermind who organized the race.

Martin said she got the idea to host a race after she heard about cardboard boat racing from a friend whose grandfather participates in races on a lake in New York.

A new listing on a federal government job board is raising constitutional questions, as Capitol Police are looking to hire their own prosecutors.

"This is clearly unconstitutional to have federal prosecutors working for Speaker Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in Congress," Davis said, since prosecution falls under the Executive Branch, not Congress. He also noted how special prosecutors often have a tremendous amount of autonomy.

"They're going to be able to do whatever they hell they want," Davis said.

That would have been the late 90s and 00s, at which point their ideology had already morphed into exactly that sort of smug, self-righteous elitism that had nothing to do with helping the little guy and everything to do with helping one's social standing among one's fellow yuppies and managerials.

60 heating should not be set above 19C and air conditioning should not be set below 27C

For people in civilized countries, that means that you can't heat above 66 degrees, or cool below 81 degrees.

Although Spain is not as dependent on Russian energy supplies as many other EU countries, it has agreed to a 7-8% reduction in gas use.

Classic Germany - Germany unilaterally decided to shut down its nuclear plants and become utterly dependent on Russian gas, and is now demanding that the rest of Europe cut back their energy use to bail Germany out.

Sort of like what happened when Angela Merkel unilaterally decided to take in a million "refugees", and then demanded that the rest of Europe take "their share" of Germany's refugees.

66 Electric cars tout not buying gas. But never do they tell us what electricity costs. Never do they tell us where electricity comes from.

Electric cars are just as expensive to operate as most gas powered cars and it's going to get worse as electric cars drive electric demand up.

We're all going to be paying for our neighbors electric car juice bill even if we don't own one.

If you read the fine print (yeah, I know, almost no one does) they warn you to call their 800 number if you have ANY doubts. I ALWAYS have doubts.

My local credit union warned me both in person and via email about a scam involving spoofing their name on calls and email. It pays to be suspicious as the parents of a group of 10 year old girls invited to 'a private meeting' with Uncle Joe and his son.

RE: The PNC/Zelle scam. So I worked at a call center that did debit fraud servicing for Bank Of America. Lots of people just didn't want to talk to me cause they thought I was a scammer.

Yes, it might take time but it's the best way to go about it. Oh, and just hang up. Don't waste your breath calling the guy a faggot piece of shit. Just hang up. Do it for me.

Another stunt is (works) to whack the nest with a shovel and quickly dig up a shovelful and exchange it with another nest. Invaders kill each other. Might work on fire ants but don't have any here to try on

There are proposals for adding a tax to EV charging stations so that drivers are paying when they fill up, similar in spirit to what is done with gas-powered cars. The problem with that is EV drivers mostly charge their vehicles at home. States would be capturing that tax only when drivers charge up at public charging stations.

“The additional fee at registration may be the easiest method of recouping some of the lost gas tax revenue,” explains Kelly Funkhouser, manager of vehicle technology at Consumer Reports.

We could have gone cities: Augusta (friend from GA wanted that); Dallas; or nature: Sierra, Forrest...

We got the name out of a baby name book like normal people. :-) Her middle name is the saint name.

One of the funniest bits they did on Carson was where they gave lined up audience members cards and asked each of them to write a line for a Romance Novel with characters who were named something like Hillary and Brett. You know what I mean, the "throbbing manhood", "heaving breast" stuff.
Then their writers put the lines together in a story.

I don't know if that was intentional or not, but it adds to their notorious coverage of Arizona.

318 A few months ago I went to a Games Workshop store and there was a guy there who was visiting from Saint Petersburg. He said he really wanted to visit the store on his trip to the states because they don't have much of a hobby-store scene due to a local retail cartel pushing out the honest dealers.

So apparently in Russia even the niche nerdy hobbies are subject to gangster capitalism.

324 "The Caller ID said 'PNC Bank.'"

Before my retirement, I was a senior software engineer for a telecom company. Trust me, on VoIP systems (that is, voice-over-Internet, which is how all modern phones work) it is trivially easy to fake a caller ID. I've done it myself many times, in order to test my routing applications. Never depend on caller ID to verify that a call is legitimate! If anyone calls you and asks for passwords or other confidential information, hang up!

373 I've been in Mexico a bit, and I find it fascinating. Downsides, corruption is rampant, poverty is massive, government is so dysfunctional as to be non-existent most of the time, and much of society is, quite literally, lawless.

But on the other side of the ledger, in day to day practice it's one of the most libertarian free market systems (on a day to day scale) that I've ever been in. And much of it is incredibly, exotically beautiful. You just have to always take care and have the sense to stay out of places where you could get murdered. Which is a lot of it.

402 Holiday Inn Express has always been very good for us. A few times on the right coast, years back. And one property in CA near a wine region that has been so consistently excellent we kept going back vs. trying B&Bs in the area.

One of the few times I've felt like contacting corporate to let them know how good a property was. Second time, I called instead of emailed. Very interesting. Guy I talked to immediately said, "oh, yeah, that place is outstanding, we get positive customer feedback here constantly". I ventured that it must be management - and being in a small town environment helped. He agreed.

3rd or 4th time we stayed there, a women who had run the breakfast area, but had been out for maternity leave for a while, recognized and remembered us. At a busy chain hotel.

410 The scumbag that shot the McDonald's employee had 13 priors. I thought that the cops were hunting down black people and executing them according to countless lefties. But the hunters (cops) had this guy 13 times and didn't execute him. Was he too small.

-
The other night Gutfield covered a woman who had been arrested over 100 times and always released without bond until this last time. She never stole anything major, her last bust she stole paper towels. She had the misfortune to assault an arresting officer and was not immediately cut loose. But that was two or three nights ago so she probably is out now.

411 In mexico, naming was lots of fun in the olden days. If you were born on the feast day of a saint, that might be reflected in your name...
For example:
Eduvigis (from Saint Hedwig). Boy OR girl name.
Saint was male or female? Child was opposite? No problem! Append an 'o' (e.g. Rito for Saint Rita) or an 'a' or maybe just append Jose or Maria (e.g. Maria Issac).

434 A shame what's happened to Mexico, in many ways. Grew up on the border (there was a border then), sort of a second country, culturally, and such warm open easygoing people (the regular people, not the blue-eyed Harvard miseducated elite). But it's a very mixed bag. The income growth in Mexico has been spectacular. It benefited tremendously from the global wealth explosion of the last 40 years that most people either don't know about or just seem to take for granted.

Not long ago, WalMart or Costco (forget which) was the 1st or 2nd largest private employer. The maquiladora sector in some areas did more than provide "modern" employment in manufacturing, know personally of medical tech areas in which Mexican engineers and professionals also participate and advance.

A wonderful thing is to travel by boat the 800-mile length of Baja, stopping in small port towns. The old Mexico in most ways. Friendly, easygoing, quiet. Not tourist areas, just fishing towns.

462 OrangeEnt they use a patronymic, with gender endings, for middle names - but it's common to use both first and patronymic when addressing, or talking about, someone.

So Russian radio hosts will talk about "Vladimir Vladmirovich" when talking about Putin. A female gets the father's name but ending in "-na" instead of "-ovich". The "ov" is typically left out, so in Putin's case pronounced "Vladimirich".

I think Iceland still has a pure patronymic system, so brother/sister will have different "last names", though I think they've done something about that. Makes phone directories tricky.

497 Someone referenced Bronze Age Pagan, a review wing pundit earlier and I was struck by this line from an article in 2019

Conservatives pretend to be able to recruit Latinos to their cause with the degraded ideology of Jack Kemp but Latinos see David French call forced “drag queen” visits for schoolchildren “part of free life,” and want nothing to do with it. We are far better at recruiting Latinos, and as the example of Bolsonaro among many others shows, this new, energetic and popular form of the right is a Latino movement, and it is the future.

And looking at the recent numbers of hispanics it looks like what BAP was saying is right - get rid of the French tranny-fans and you can win over hispanics...

He has always been a source of interesting inside perspective (lately he has had nothing good to say). Assuming he's XO, based on his prior history known from his presence at shootin' matches a few years back. Don't think he's the skipper.

561 Turley: In other words, the case can then be collapsed by triggering a smaller explosion. Rather than pursue wider conspiracies connected to the influence peddling, Hunter could be indicted on a few tax or lobbying counts. That would allow for a plea bargain that would allow the media to focus narrowly on those counts and not the broader influence peddling by the Biden family.

The fire was car sized and you could not make out a bit of the vehicle. The fire trucks were spraying around the edge of the fire but not into the vehicle. On the way home hours later there was a crew cleaning up the area with many hazardous waste looking containers. This is a raw desert area between urban areas.

The factory was also contracting production lines to other companies producing a variety of products. Unfortunately, the production line next to ours was making toy pianos for children, which played a pre-programmed version of "It's A Small World", which each unit would have to play at the end of it's build for quality control purposes. For weeks, 12-18 hours a day, 7 days a week, that is all I heard. Even headphones couldn't block it out. I am permanently scarred to this day, and I would forever be grateful for an undisturbed hour alone with the chinese engineer that programmed that toy.

Well, my first canning run seems to be doing fine. Jars seemed to be well sealed. That was fun, but a hell of a lot of work. I've got 9 quarts of green beans processed, now. Can easily do another tomorrow.

My mother has a shit-ton of Ball jars, and we got some for this run, cleaned and sterilized. When fishing around in one of her closets, we found a full jar. Something dark brown inside. I figured opening that up would be worst smelling stuff I've ever experienced.

It was still sealed, or the lid was just stuck, and I opened it up. Still smelled like tomatoes! Smell wasn't bad as all.

My mother swears that 1973 was the last year she canned anything. So, 49 years at least.

646 A farmer named his kids after whatever he saw first immediately after the birth.
The first day of school began, and the teacher asked each child their name. When he got to the farmer’s son the boy replied "Wagonwheel".
The teacher said "I need your REAL name, son." The boy replied, "It’s Wagonwheel, sir…Really". The teacher, in a huff, said "Alright young man march yourself right down to the principal’s office THIS minute!!!!"
The boy got out of his chair, turned to his sister and said, "Come on Chickenshit, he ain’t gonna believe you neither!"

Before my retirement, I was a senior software engineer for a telecom company. Trust me, on VoIP systems (that is, voice-over-Internet, which is how all modern phones work) it is trivially easy to fake a caller ID. I've done it myself many times, in order to test my routing applications. Never depend on caller ID to verify that a call is legitimate! If anyone calls you and asks for passwords or other confidential information, hang up!

717 Someone skimmed my debit card and spoofed Apple billing. Fooled my bank. $3800 in 21 transactions within an hour. The fraud alert picked up one of the charges and sent me a text to call the bank. The fraud manager allowed all of the charges to go through because if I have an apple account, then they must be some annual subscriptions i forgot I had. Took hours and an email from apple to explain to them that none of those charges originated from Apple.

Sorry to hear that, man.

Something similar happened to me just last week. Some jack off used my card to buy something in the amount of $887.03 from Apple. Got that text and closed the card immediately.

I think I lucked out, though, cause the transaction never posted to my account. Spent two days as a "pending" transaction, mocking me the whole time, before clearing off. I took this to mean that someone at Apple decided that that purchase stunk to high heaven and canceled it on their end.

752 Days of Our Lives is going, huh? Growing up I was never able to look at soap operas, but I remember about when it premiered. It had been created as a vehicle for long-time movie actor Macdonald Carey, who started on the show as a local doctor or something.

I used to like Search for Tomorrow in the mid-'80s, just before it vanished. It was at that point the oldest of the TV soaps with at least 2 actors who'd been on the show since the '50s. I liked it for the pretty women, that not all of the characters were young and glossy, and that it aired not long before I had to leave for work, so it made a pleasant half-hour's diversion. Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in the animated series and in other things since, was a featured character on it back then.

756 Hmmm. The government is intentionally making the Lake Mead water shortage look worse than it is because the downstream water rations for 2023 are based on lake water levels at the end of the 2022 "water year". If the lake levels are low enough, the downstream states will be allocated less water. But this is only based on Meade levels, so they are holding water upstream in Lake Powell and allowing Meade to drop to record lows. The media rushes out to Meade with "OMG look how low the water is! Climate change! Disaster!" Stories. Next year the lower states will have a water crisis, but Meade levels will go up thanks to our government heroes.
