The List – 2020 to Present


2020

  1. Due to Coronovirus (COVID19) all TCP applications are being converted to UDP to avoid Handshakes. (seen on Twitter.com, 10 March 2020)
  2. GO INTO THE STREETS FOLKS. Visit bars, restaurants, shopping malls, CHURCHES and demand that your schools re-open. NOW! If government doesn’t stop this foolishness…STAY IN THE STREETS. END GOVERNEMNT CONTROL OVER OUR LIVES. IF NOT NOW, WHEN? THIS IS AN EXPLOITATION OF A CRISIS. (David A. Clarke, Jr. on Twitter, 15 March 2020)
  3. The Wall Street Journal always “forgets” to mention that the ratings for the White House Press Briefings are “through the roof” (Monday Night Football, Bachelor Finale, according to
    @nytimes) & is only way for me to escape the Fake News & get my views across. WSJ is Fake News! (POTUS45 on Twitter regarding COVID-19 Pandemic daily briefings, 9 April 2020)
  4. you can’t drink all day unless you start in the morning…! (seen on Facebook.com, 3 July 2020)
  5. The Republican Party has grown incredibly from where it was and we have a whole different group of people in the Republican Party. People don’t remember… nobody ever heard of it until I came along, nobody remembered it for a long time or they didn’t use it at least, I use it all the time – Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. You say that and people say ‘I didn’t know that’ but he was a Republican. (Donald J. Trump, 10 July 2020)
  6. I know many in business and politics that work out endlessly, in some cases to a point of exhaustion. It is their number one passion in life, but nobody complains. My “exercise” is playing, almost never during the week, a quick round of golf. Obama played more and much longer rounds, no problem. When I play, Fake News CNN, and others, park themselves anywhere they can to get a picture, then scream “President Trump is playing golf.” Actually, I play VERY fast, get a lot of work done on the golf course, and also get a “tiny” bit of exercise. Not bad! (Donald J. Trump, July 12, 2020)
  7. Many of those cases are young people who would heal in a day, they have the sniffles and we put it down as a test. Many of them, don’t forget, I guess it’s like, 99.7%, people are going to get better, and in many cases, they’re going get better very quickly. (Donald J. Trump, 10 July 2020)
  8. We won two World Wars, two World Wars, beautiful World Wars that were vicious and horrible, and we won them out of Fort Bragg, we won out of all of these forts that now they want to throw those names away. (Donald J. Trump, 10 July 2020)
  9. When we’re up here and the rest of the world is down at a level, that’s just a tiny fraction of what we’ve done in terms of testing. So it’s a bit curious, a man works for us, with us, very closely Dr Fauci. Fauci and Dr. Birx also highly thought of. And yet they’re highly thought of but nobody likes me. It can only be my personality. I don’t know… (Donald J. Trump, July 29, 2020)
  10. We’re doing very well. Don’t know if you’ve seen, the polls have been going up like a rocket ship. Hey, I was, George Washington would have had a hard time beating me before the plague came in, before the China plague. (Donald J. Trump, August 10, 2020)
  11. The good thing about science is that it’s true, whether or not you believe in it. (Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson)
  12. He who establishes his arguments by noise and command shows that his reason is weak. (Michel de Montaigne, 1533-1592)
  13. The amount of energy needed to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it. (Brandolini’s Law)
  14. Money won’t buy happiness – but it’s far more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than on a bicycle.
  15. Forgive your enemy – but remember the person’s name.
  16. If you help someone when they’re in trouble they will re- member you when they’re in trouble
    again.
  17. Alcohol does not solve problems – but neither does milk.
  18. Some people are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.
  19. We all came over on different ships but we’re all in the same boat now. (Bishop Curry)
