Thursday night ONT
— Open Blogger

Good evening fellow Morons, how is everyone? I'm back! What's it like to be back, you ask?

Dog and cows.jpg

It's almost like conservatives are people, not monsters


A Hillary Staffer Goes to CPAC
Excpecting scorn and derision, she was instead greeted with warmth and welcome. Imagine that.


Where were you last night?


ONT Flotsam

Why Is Walking on the Surface of the Earth Any Less Miraculous Than Flying Above It?
I had bookmarked this article a coupe of weeks ago. I know I had some thoughts about it that I wanted to share. What were those thoughts? Who knows? I certainly don't, and I'm in no shape to figure it out. So here! Philosophy link!


Genius!

Vox explains that more young people die from gunshots than from diseases that don't primarily affect the young. Did you also know that more dogs die from distemper than from drowning while attempting to circumnavigate the globe?




Americans being Americans


Clarksville tornado: 250 volunteers overflow signup sheets for storm debris cleanup


A natural disaster strikes. The next day, more volunteers to help show up than they have room for. That's my America.


Good Question

When Will We Have the Guts to Link Fatherlessness to School Shootings?

This article pairs well with something that Jesse Kelly wrote the other day.

Related: Women are doing it all themselves - so why are we so unhappy?

Maybe tossing away thousands of years of carefully developed societal standards on a whim wasn't such a good idea after all. Who could have known?


New Doctor Who Intro

Budget cuts at the BBC



Situational Awareness

Good for her. She obviously had an eye on him, because she moved as soon as he did.

28 Type 1 can strike young people, but you are right, even then it takes a bit to really do the damage. I am pretty sure guns have killed more 15-19 year old than old age as well- which is really the type of conditions they are describing.

35 Clarksville tornado: 250 volunteers overflow signup sheets for storm debris cleanup --------------- When Hurricane Ivan passed through here, City water was lost for days. The Red Cross brought in semis loaded with pallets of bottled water. The problem was that there was no way to get out to all of the distribution points. The local talk radio station (WWNC) put out the word that volunteer help was needed. When I arrived at the Red Cross center in my truck, there were vehicles of every sort lined up at the semis, loading up with cases of water to transport.

61 Glad to see you back, Wierd Dave. I feel like shit. This omnibus crap, I fear, is the straw that breaks ... Ya know, we chicken little all the time and have so far muddled through. But the uniparty just told us that our pitiful little voting experiment was cute, but fuck you. Yet, in three weeks, at the point of a gun, we'll have to fund their fiscal insanity. Again. Until a sizable portion of the producers in this country stop paying taxes, or banworthy things start happening to politicians, nothing will change.

So it's like a square/rectangle thing. All cubs are kittens but not all kittens are cubs? "Roar" seems to be defined by frequency which related to size, so that would seem to be a better (but still not good) bar.

105 Austin Bomber self-diagnosed himself as a psychopath in his confession video. 
Said he believed he'd been disturbed since childhood.

Via the Statesman. (paper in Austin.)

The only think that leaves doubt about that in my view is he had no charm.
I think he had a wrong brain, but perhaps it was some other pathology.

Anyway can't you tell his brain was wrong by that high school photo his mother put up on FB upon his matriculation?

108 Trump tweeted this tonight. It made me sick to my stomach: "Got $1.6 Billion to start Wall on Southern Border, rest will be forthcoming. Most importantly, got $700 Billion to rebuild our Military, $716 Billion next year...most ever. Had to waste money on Dem giveaways in order to take care of military pay increase and new equipment." It's as if he's forgotten why people voted for him. It wasn't because they wanted more military spending, which is LESS important than securing our border.

133 Years ago, I saw a documentary about people who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and survived - which is like hitting a concrete pavement and surviving.

I remember they said 3 things:

1.  If any passersbys had said "Don't do it!"  or shown they had given a shit, they would not have jumped.

2.  May people driving past did the exact opposite - they yelled out of their windows "Do it! Jump!"  (Ah, those compassionate San Fran progs.)

3. The millisecond after they jumped, they all instantly regretted jumping.  And it hurt like hell to hit the water.

150 WARNING: Wall o' Text "Not everyone understands the difference between a kitten and a cub. Two Genus of cats exist; Felidae (true cats and most small wild cats) and Panthera (tiger, lion, jaguar and leopard). The Cheetah is Felidae, and subfamily Felinae, Acinonyx jubatus. Actually, panther technically refers to every cat in the genus Panthera. Yet, it usually refers to the black panther. A melanistic jaguar or melanistic leopard and also the Florida panther, a subspecies of the cougar. Interestingly, the cougar is genus Felidae. So you see how this can get quite confusing. Still, a mystery is how some confuse a leopard spotted cat as a tiger. The term ‘Big Cat’ is quite often used to refer to the Panthera genus. Servals The serval is Felis Serval. Also sometimes referred to as Leptailurous serval and falls into the ‘most small wild cat’ definition. Despite enormous differences in size, the various species of cat are quite similar in both structure and behavior, with the exception of the cheetah, which is significantly different from any of the big or small cats. Scientifically the difference between whether a cat offspring is a kitten or a cub is determined by whether or not the parent roars or purrs. Big Cats Roaring. The ability to roar comes from an elongated and specially adapted larynx and hyoid apparatus. When air passes through the larynx on the way from the lungs, the cartilage walls of the larynx vibrate This produces sound. The lion’s larynx is longest, giving it the most robust roar. All Panthera cats have elastic sections on both sides of the hyoid bone, a structure which supports the tongue and its muscles. The elastic hyoid, combined with the fibro-elastic tissue on top of the big cats’ undivided vocal folds, acts like a slide trombone, enabling the big cats to roar. BIG CATS CAN ONLY PURR WHEN BREATHING OUT. Small Cats The smaller cat species have kittens, not cubs because they purr. The hyoid of smaller cats is solid bone. These cats can purr when breathing both in and out, but they can’t roar. Cougars purr. Cheetahs purr. The ‘big cats’ chuff but cannot purr. As a future reference, the Genus Panthera; i.e. tigers, lions, jaguars, and leopards roar, chuff and give birth to CUBS. The Genus Felidae, house cats of all breeds, all small wild cats such as serval, Asian leopard cat, sand cat, cougar, caracal and the like, purr and their babies are called KITTENS.

212 As an old broad who experienced the second wave of feminisn, I have to tell you that this generation of "femininists" make me want to bitch slap the whole damn lazy, selfish bunch of them. I worked, kicked, and scratched my way to the top of a male only hierarchy before they were even born. They prattle on about "sexism" and all their other -isms, and they have no idea what any of those -isms truly are. They make me sick. "Equality of pay?" Honey, where did you get your MBA , and how many sixty, eighty hour weeks did you work? I didn't have the first, but I did a bunch of the second. And I quickly realized it wasn't worth it. I saw an opportunity and I grabbed it. I could have retired with a nice little nest egg. Instead, I owned and ran my own business for sixteen years. Every penney I owned and more went into that bookstore, and it was more than worth it. And being a woman didn't slow me down the least little bit. (But Obummer's economy finally finished me off.) And, I might add, I did it while married, with four kids. I'm still married (forty-seven years and counting), and all four of my kids are still on speaking terms with me.

They only take a few causes of death to compare it to..

Accidental death accounts for almost half of the deaths in the age group..

Of that half, accidental discharge of a gun is 2%..

Suicide and homicide - ALL causes - comprise 24%.. and not only by firearms..

Some dog he was training got lost, and he offered a $35 reward. Some character named Moses Something found the dog, and returned it. Alfalfa paid them $35 and bought him $15 worth of drinks to boot at a bar where Switzer also worked. A few days later, Alfalfa and one of his buds decided that Moses had ripped 'em off, and ought to have returned that dog had not accepted that $50 total. So they went to the house Moses was staying out to call him out. They got in the door under false pretenses, then started a fight. Alfalfa ended up getting shot, right in the dick. Bled out. It was ruled self-defense, but there was some controversy as Alfalfa just had pen knife he had pulled or something.

Representative Huizenga,

Your "yes' vote to approve this spending bill was irresponsible and disgraceful.
It is an abdication of fiscal responsibility on par with nearly every Democrat office-holder.

Why aren't you urging your fellow House Members, both in word and deed, to return to regular order, and submit proper appropriation bills?

Republicans control the House, Senate, and White House. The actions of you and your Republican colleagues voting 'yes' in this matter have confirmed to me that these members of the GOP are WORSE than the Democrats, since your actions are a betrayal of your stated principles. At least the Democrats come right out and say they want to spend recklessly.

I expect you to represent your district with more fiscal prudence in the future, and hold to the principles you claim to have when you campaign.

Sincerely angry,

They just list the overall suicide rate (which is high) and the overall rate "killed by firearm" (suicide and homicide). Of course, they don't break them down correctly because they really don't want anyone even able to pull the gun homicides from the suicides too easily ... as that would ruin all their hard work massaging the categories for best "headline" purposes, lefty-wise. But, clearly, the vast, vast, vast majority of gun homicides of youth are in the inner cities. I think the suburbs tend to specialize in the gun suicides.

264 Black Lives Matter protesters blocked Interstate 5 in Sacramento for more than 30 minutes during Thursday evening's commute. Protesters stopped traffic in both the northbound and southbound lanes before being funneled onto the northbound I-5. The interstate, near the I Street and J Street exits reopened by 6 p.m. Protesters are now marching through downtown Sacramento again, heading to the State Capitol. The protesters are rallying against the deadly police shooting of Stephon Clark. Sacramento police officers were searching for someone who was breaking into cars Sunday night when they confronted Clark in the backyard of his grandparents' home. Officers called for Clark to stop and show his hands before one of them shouted, "gun, gun, gun." The officers then opened fire on Clark, firing a total of 20 rounds, Sacramento police said.

295 I have a few Tengrist friends. Their afterlife is actually pretty nice. You die, and go to the Other World, where your spirit-horse (your counterpart in the spirit world; your fate is tied to its. What happens to you here affects it there, and vice versa) greets you. You saddle up and ride the steppe for all eternity, living there as you did here. Very peaceful.

305 Lot of people upset at Trump for the shit spending bill...not sure why--did Trump campaign as a fiscal conservative? And if we abandon him over this, cui bono? I'll say it again: I voted for Trump knowing that he was sure to do a lot of things I'd hate, but also that there was a chance he'd do some things I liked. He's come through on the latter more than anyone could plausibly argue any other GOP stooge in his position would, so now it's time to brace up and realize that the alternative is throwing him to the media wolves...and then where will we be? Don't think that the Dems are going to go any easier on us all if Trump goes down sooner than later. you've all heard the Hilary rants recently, and you know they're just waiting to pounce and gut us all. Trump is an extremely imperfect leader for us to have, but dammit he's the last line of defense against the Progressive-GOPe mob that will be out for blood.

311 From my e-mail:

The Toronto Police report finding a man's body in the Don River, near Edwards Gardens. The dead man's name will not be released until his family has been notified.

The victim apparently drowned due to excessive marijuana consumption.

He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink G-string, a strap-on dildo, purple lipstick, and a "Re-Elect Trudeau" T-shirt. He also had a cucumber in his rectum.

The police removed the Trudeau T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.

In spite of what we sometimes think, the Police do care.

376 218 Donna the Ampersand Queen -- That's another reason I bugged out of the corporate world. I was sick to death of the back biting, the empire building, the culture of personality, and the sheer stupidity of my then current job. But the mere idea of going out on another round of job interviews made me want to puke. Since I had already worked in the book selling world and there's nobody so loves books for me, I decided to start my own store. It was wonderful! I no longer had to hear that if field personnel (that would be us who actually dealt with real customers) would just shut our mouths and did what Home Office (that would be those who never even talked to a real customer in their entire lives), life would be perfect and the company would be raking in more money than the accountants could count. I'll be the first to admit, I couldn't have done it without the inheritance my grandparents left me as seed money. I know there are a lot of people who have had to put their dreams aside because they had no practical way of starting. But with six and a half years of actual bookselling under my belt, and a few bucks in my hand, I went for it. I already knew who the major players were in the distributing field, I knew how books were inventoried, and I sure as hell l knew how not to run a bookstore. I subleased the back wall of a used electronic game store (I knew the kid's father who was heavily invested in the kid's business) and never looked back. Donna, you have my sympathy with the resume writing and the LinkedIn page. I never had to worry about anything like LinkedIn or wonder what the Hell a prospective employer was digging around the net looking for on me. Best of luck to you.

  We just rediscovered a part of our family  history  Tuesday.  I was looking at something online about the Civil War and found an escutcheon depicting one of my ancestors.

  After Dad died, when we probated his estate, it turned up missing. No record of what happened, just gone.

  I was perusing some items in an antique shop and there it was.  Older daughter and I are going to Mass and retrieve it next week.  Gonna cost me $350, down from $500.  Kinda pissed I have to buy back something stolen from us, but at least it's home again.

  The individual involved is a bit of a badass, having fought in and survived  Bull Run, Antietam, Cold Harbor, Gettysburg and being captured in Bethesda for a stint at Andersonville Prison.

 After he as mustered out he came home and spent his life being a carpenter.
  We have some stuff he made that is as solid as the day it was crafted.

   I'd love to have met him.

526 The "girl goes to CPAC" thing rings true. I'm a small town conservative that moved into a big liberal city. Every girl I date is surprised when I out myself.

528 L.O.L Hate the stop start thing. Would never buy a car with it. Was hard to find one without it for a while. Like I said, I think they needed it for the mileage numbers, since they have some seriously ridiculous fleet mileage averages they have to get to. Guess it has gone by the wayside now. Has to be rough on your starter. Posted by: yankeefifth at March 23, 2018 12:46 AM (MTjB1) The upside is that the starter is beefed up for that crap. I can stop having to turn it off each time by driving in sport mode, which is okay. Up to now, though, I've just turned the switch off each time - sometimes only when I stop and hear the engine stop - and curse Ford a little, but my mileage is so unimpressive that I think I'm just going to start driving it in sport mode all the time and see how much worse it gets. They advertised 22 mpg in the city and I drive in a very suburban/country area. I'm just barely squeezing 19mpg out of it, with a very soft gas pedal. I can't imagine how bad the mileage would be if I were still in the city. Sheesh.

613 This is a thing in RC that takes a lot of getting used to if you come into it from Judaism. As I was raised, except at YK, to deny yourself any good thing that was permitted was itself a sin. They said that a man who declined a permitted thing in this world would answer for it in the next. I admire the discipline of the Christians.

Canadian Pacific Railway used to have a "Car-Go-Rail" service. You would drive to the railway station, a (union, natch) hand would drive it onto a transporter car, and hopefully secure it, and you would board a passenger car for your trip across country. It never caught on. Really no faster than a banzai cross-country drive, and often inexplicable delays in places like Field, or Moose Jaw, but you could not exit the train to explore, because duration of delay unknown. And it was no cheaper than driving on your own. I think corporate relocations made up the bulk of their business.

653 Walking on or flying over the Earth? Have you ever watch the Apollo astronauts do either on a whim on the Moon? In fact, because the surface friction is so low due to the reduced gravity of the Moon, it is easier and faster fly. If Elon Musk ever lands people of Mars, they will live in an in-between situation. Mars' gravity is a bit stronger than the Moon's but much less than the Earth's. That will definitely affect them. Will they listen to the wisdom of Dorothy Gale, "There's no place like home." Now that the "hero" of Facebook is being exposed as a schlub, Will Elon Musk be next? He has told people he is having pay him boatloads of money to fly them to Mars, that they will probably die. How is that different than asking Jews to pay the Nazis for the chance to take a shower?

680 So late to the game, but.... 1) My Acura RDX AWD gets 27mpg during road trips. It has a 6cyl, that smoothly transitions to 4, then 3 cylinders as it cruises, seemlessly. No turbo lag!! 2) Formula One Practice sessions are televised on ESNWS, (aka ESPNEWS) With that, it's late, even in Mtn time. G'night gang!

683 Did someone say bacon? I fell for the marketing bullshit about the Bacon King burger from Booger King. Yuck! The local BK franchise is putting about a third of the bacon promised in the advertising on their sandwiches. You get more bacon on a equally nasty Jack in the Box bacon burger. Filthy, undercooked, greasy, and not open on time is no way to run a franchise. I predict this BK location won't exist in 2019.

688 When it comes to Burger King, I don't know if this is a national trend or just my local store: It used to be when you ordered at BK, your burger was fresh off the grill and assembled 'your way' (I know this because I worked at a BK while in college and was often stuck slapping frozen burgers onto the 'chain' grill when we had customer rushes). But my local BK now does the 'precook the burgers and stick 'em in a holding tray' thing, nuking the burger to reheat it before assembly when the customer makes an order. That's just like McDonald's now. Mickey D's no longer has a warming area under a heat lamp of wrapped pre-made burgers so you got it 'their way' unless special ordered, and that always took lots amount of time (no pickles for me). Now, the burgers are removed from a warming tray and assembled to order. It used to be BK was better than McD's because the burgers were hot off the chain grill and assembled per order. Now they're both basically the same crap, with no actual difference between them. Even their marketing icons are no different: A creepy clown or a creepy king. To sum up: Chinese take-out FTW!

690 Yes BK sucks. I stopped at one a couple of months ago. They had renovated the restaurant but not the cardboard burgers. And its pretty much $10 for that crap of a combo. I like Chik fil-A or admit to a weakness for a Beef N'Cheddar every once in a while from Arby's.

696 And its pretty much $10 for that crap of a combo. Posted by: jsg at March 23, 2018 05:55 AM (4rBza) For $10, I can get a freshly prepared Chinese take-out meal (with enough for leftovers the next day) and, depending on what I order, can even get a soup with that $10. It used to be BK and McD's were cheap fast food alternatives. But not so much anymore. For some of the burger prices/meals at those two chains, one could go to something like a Red Robin and have a sit down meal. Oh, and that's why my shadow never crosses the threshold of a Little Caesar's store. They do the same thing as BK and McD's but with pizza: Pre-cooked and stuck in a warmer. That's why they have quick pizza take-out, usually less than five minutes, beating both BK and McD's when it comes to customer in-line wait times. But fast is definitely not always a good thing when it comes to prepared food.

One does not know the bathroom hygiene habits of those around you. That's on top of the sneezy/coughy ones whose spittle spray gets into the food. Thanks but no thanks.

Yep.  The same reason the majority of Americans are disgusted by what 2% of the population does (and there's no way around it- the vast majority of people are disgusted when they see men kissing or holding hands) is the same reason no one cares that a man likes attractive women and likes having sex with attractive women.  ALL normal men like attractive women and would like to have sex with attractive women.  Every single one.

Her book sales go to charity, and the mocker's book (wherein he makes her bunny a homosexual)  also has his proceeds going to charity.  When asked how she felt about him making her family pet into a raging homo, she basically said she thought it was great that he took her idea of a bunny and also wrote a book which would promote charitable giving.  She's had other positive things to say about him too.  She's killing him with kindness.  Completely taking the wind out of his sails.

I watched a Disney movie a couple weeks ago with my kids "Coco" about some poor  Mexican kid that wants to be a musician.  Decent movie but one thing that struck me was there were no gay characters, blatant or subliminal, which is unusual anymore.  Why is that?

Because the movie was heavily  marketed  to Hispanics here and abroad.  Seem like the lefts new BFF won't go see movies that have the gayz agenda built in.
