Best Quote of the Week – June 26, 2020

“We all know how things go viral on the Internet.  You see something funny.  A cat video, and you share it with 10 people, and those people share it with 10 people each, so you’re up to 100. And those 100 share it to another 10, so you’re up to 1,000.  They keep sharing, and 1,000 becomes 10,000 and then 100,000 and then 1 million.  So in only six cycles of transmission, one person can affect one million.  Real viruses, like the new coronavirus, work exactly the same way.”

Dr. John Abikhaled, Travis County (Texas) Medical Society, explaining the cycle of COVID-19 transmission.

Video of the Week – June 19, 2020

Here we have foreign-born Abraham “Avrumy” Knofler screaming about a “Black Lives Matter” sign in front of one of the most dangerous establishments in the world – a coffee shop in New York.  “I was making a protest – all lives matter,” he told Gothamist.

Yes, they do, Avrumy.  But assholes don’t matter at all!

Tweet of the Week – June 19, 2020

Here’s definitive proof that veterinary work is one of the toughest jobs on Earth.  At least this pup was somewhat amiable.  My late schnauzer had to be sedated before his nails could be trimmed; otherwise, he’d go into a snarling frenzy and an “alligator-death-roll”.

Worst Quote of the Week – June 19, 2020

“I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous.  It’s actually an important event, an important time.  But nobody had ever heard of it.”

Donald Trump, announcing the “discovery” ahead of this weekend’s visit to Tulsa, Oklahoma, for a campaign rally.

The U.S. Secret Service had to inform our disoriented “leader” that June 19 (“Juneteenth”) is already a well-known date in American civil rights history.

Best Quote of the Week – June 19, 2020

“In Title VII, Congress adopted broad language making it illegal for an employer to rely on an employee’s sex when deciding to fire that employee.  We do not hesitate to recognize today a necessary consequence of that legislative choice: An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law.”

– U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, writing for the majority in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, No. 17-1618, which outlaws discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Tweet of the Week – June 12, 2020

Donald Trump on renaming U.S. military bases originally named for Confederate military figures.

There’s something inherently un-American about a U.S. military base named after someone who moved Heaven and Earth to fight against the United States.

Best Quote of the Week – June 12, 2020

“We’re not the country of just the president, we have a Congress, we have a Supreme Court, but, most of all, we have the people of the United States, the ones who vote. The ones who vote him in and the ones who vote him out. I couldn’t vote for him in 2016. I certainly cannot in any way support President Trump this year.”

Colin Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stating he will vote for Joe Biden in November because President Donald Trump has “drifted away” from the Constitution, is a chronic liar and is “dangerous to our country.”
