  • No pandering to snowflakes here! Motivational posters from the 1920s that taught workers to pull their socks up

    A fascinating collection of 1920s 'life-coaching' posters which were designed to encourage good behaviour in the workplace have come to light. They were produced by the now-defunct print company Parker-Holladay who created the well-dressed character Bill Jones to dispense pearls of wisdom and have emerged for sale for £3,000 with Ewbank's Auctions, of Woking, Surrey. The 'productivity at work' posters were placed in factories and offices across Britain and carried messages about self-control and avoiding confrontation. They were so successful that they were used in America and Canada.

    The U.S. midterm elections are some 10 months away, but President Biden's administration and allies already foresee a possible scenario in which Republicans take the House of Representatives, the Senate, or both, and launch a series of investigations and attempts to impeach the president. It hired a special advisor, former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, to oversee implementation of the $1 trillion infrastructure law, which Republicans would likely scrutinize in search of fraud. "They’ll subpoena everything under the sun," said Richard Painter, former associate counsel under Republican President George W. Bush. “We are going to go after this administrative state,...

    President Biden visits a remote Native American reservation. With news crews following him around as they tour the place, the President asks the chief if there is anything they need. "Well," says the chief, "We have three very important needs. First, we have a medical clinic, but no doctor to man it.” Biden whips out his cellphone, dials a number, talks to somebody for two minutes, and then hangs up. "I've pulled some strings. Your doctor will arrive in a few days.” "Now what was the second problem?” "We have no way to get clean water. The local mining operation...

    Prince Andrew would 'shout and scream' if his teddy bear collection was knocked out of place by palace maids, a former royalty protection officer has claimed. Former bodyguard Paul Page made the revelation during an interview with Ranvir Singh for the upcoming ITV documentary, Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile. The former constable, who left the Metropolitan Police in 2007, was part of the elite Royal Protection Squad and had access to the Duke of York's private residence. He claimed that Andrew had a bed with '50 or 60' stuffed toys and maids were given a laminated picture so each...

    An elderly couple were celebrating their 60 years together. Their three kids, all successful, agreed to a Sunday dinner in their honor. "Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad," gushed Son No. 1. 'Sorry I'm running late. I had an emergency at the hospital with a patient, you know how it is, and I didn't have time to get you a gift." "Not to worry," said the father. "Important thing is we're all together today." Son No. 2 arrived. "You and Mom look great. Dad, I just flew in from Montreal between depositions and didn't have time to shop for you." “It’s...

    A woman pulled over for several traffic violations in Troy, Michigan, was questioned by the police about the liquid in a plastic cup in her car. She reportedly told officers it was an alcoholic beverage before spilling it out on the ground. Local station WDIV-TV reported that officers pulled the woman over at 10:22 p.m. on January 3. The 35-year-old woman came to a stop in her SUV, but put it in reverse and hit the bumper of the police squad car. Officials said that when responding officers spoke with the woman, who did not have a driver's license with...

    If you're one of us who thoroughly enjoy when the commie filth at DU are in the depressive phase of their severe bi-polar, then I have a few threads for your enjoyment! The daily outright kookiness and idiocy of this merry band of trannies, commies, mental health patients, fruitcakes and self-hating whites is enough to leave your mouth agape. However, when they're in their throes of despondency, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is more enjoyable than reading it firsthand. I've done the dirty work, trudged through the marxist sewer and hand selected a few threads so that you may have...

    CAR TROUBLE A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died. After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly.

She replied in a huff, “I wish you guys would get your act together! Just yesterday they took my license away and now today you expect...

    U.S.—In a landmark ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court has determined that Biden's vaccine mandate for private businesses is unconstitutional. However, in a split decision, they also determined that healthcare workers are the only ones who should not be allowed to make decisions about their own health. "Healthcare workers have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to important healthcare decisions. They aren't smart like us," said the group of judges that includes people like Sotomayor, in a ruling in favor of a Federal Government that includes people like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. "The personal health choices of...

    U.S.—In a historic first, the inflation rate of the U.S. Dollar has surpassed the approval rating of the President. "Wow! My inflation is way higher than Trump's inflation! Record high! Take that, Trump!" said Biden to a bowl of oranges he had mistaken for Trump. "It's so high it even passed my really high approval rating! That's how you do it, Jack!" Biden's aides then rushed in to explain that high inflation is a bad thing. According to experts, runaway inflation is so high that it has broken the inflation meters on all the economist's inflation measuring machines. Many are...
