Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread (9/8/16) [Mis. Hum.]

Ronald Reagan said the following about liberals. "The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

How to be liberal? All that is required are hypocrisy and ignorance.

Ignorance is an absolute must, but especially ignorance of three things: economics, human nature and all of recorded history.

One has to be truly economically illiterate to believe that high taxes encourages productivity, that union-imposed labor regulations don't dis-incentivize hiring, that energy regulations don't raise prices on the poor and working class.


Ronald Reagan also had this profound insight into depths of bureaucratic hell, "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

We are coming up on the anniversary of the 911 Attacks. Are we as a country freer? Or have we just added to the bloat of government? If you answered No. We haven't added to the bloat let's meet 9-year-old Chille Bergstrom of Wyoming, MN. He wanted to fly with his mother from Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport back home. The problem? Well, the young lad has a pacemaker for his heart condition. He was ineligible for walk through metal detector screening. He was informed that he could not be alternatively screened and would need an exemption. Needless to say, Chille and his mother were unable to fly out of Phoenix that day. Way too help out a family.

2,653 firearms found by TSA while passengers are checked. Number one excuse, ooops I forgot. So they can find guns but can't let a 9 year old fly. Yup, I feel safe.

Every five years, the federal Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services revise their Dietary Guidelines for Americans. If science is settled, why do they need to put out revisions? Mankind has been eating longer than monitoring thermometers for global warming.

Eggs are bad. Eggs are good. Salt is bad. Salt is good. Yes, American bureaucrats ruined the American food culture.

More and more, the history of dietary guidelines that our public-health authorities promulgate resembles the Woody Allen comedy Sleeper in which the main character, awakening from a centuries long slumber, learns that every food we once thought bad for us, is actually good, starting with steak and chocolate.


So before you eat your meal what kind of soap do you wash your hands with? The FDA has banned antibacterial soaps. Supposedly there is no scientific evidence that they work better than regular soap. Time will tell.


No wise cracks about ice cream and/or brownies. There is a company making marijuana tampons. Has the FDA checked out these, marijuana tampons? If you're an 'ette who lives in CA or CO you can order them. They seem a little pricey at $44 for a package of 4.

"School teachers, taking them by and large, are probably the most ignorant and stupid class of men in the whole group of mental workers. " - H.L.Mencken


Teachers Educators are part of the elite government bureaucracy. Instead of the 3 R's, they are worried about competition, participation and self-esteem. Here is a test for 8th graders from 1912. What do you think the results would be for 8th graders from 2016?

We are 3 days from the 15th anniversary of the 911 attacks. Does it matter what our kids learn about Islam in public schools?

The death toll from 9/11/2001 continues to grow.


Perhaps U.S.A. student scores would improve if the teaching profession made moar classes funner. Amirite? (Geometry, physics, math to name just a few.)

Speaking of liberals, teachers and the bloated government. 3 University of CO profs don't want global warming skeptics in their class rooms. But, science, it's settled.................


5 climate change myths debunked. Not only are they debunked, they are debunked with humor. Of course liberals can't tolerate humor.


Those that do-do. Those that can't- teach, those that can't teach- do the ONT. Since we are on a teaching kick, here are 8 surprising uses for RUBBING ALCOHOL(Rubbing alcohol you morons )


What happens when you have a party attended by over 1,000 teenagers? Amish teenagers? Who made the phone call(s)? 70+ plus arrests and hospitalization for those who had too much Valu-Rite.


Holiday weeks can be rough. Attempting to cram 5 days of work into a 4 day work week is not easy. Are things awful? Questions to ask if you feel like giving up.


And finally. As we attempt not to discuss the Presidential race of 2016 here at The ONT, the following story needs to be told. A certain element of society believes free speech only applies to speech they approve of. A homeowner in Indianapolis was sick and tired of his free speech rights and his private property rights being violated. He took matters into his own hands. Ace has graciously offered a 1 year platinum AoS membership with Troll-B-Gone for this Moron.


Tonight's ONT brought to you by office etiquette.

Notice The ONT has been known to cause the following: Certain activities while they were not fully awake. These have included sleep-driving, making and eating food, making phone calls, and having sex. Patients often do not remember these events after they happen.

2 The Ultimate Tool of Oppression for the Gender Binary? Zoos!

It is axiomatic, to the Left, that "gender" does not exist an is an invention of the "Kyriarchy" (i.e. straight White "cis-het" European X-tians). This belief runs so deep that they are convinced that animals do not have genders or that there are any gender differences between the biological sexes of dimorphic species.

So why do most people recognize that there are male and female critters? Clearly it is because this insidious Kyriarchical conspiracy is brainwashing people through the power of... zoos.

62 OK, some news -- (a) Maet continues his vacay from 8/16 -- I hope he's having a great time. (b) I'm back to functional internet after having spent 10 days on a cruise to Alaska.




Over the next few days, I'll be dragging out notes and stuff and providing more info, but the summary is: the fiancee is a quilter, and there was this quilting cruise to Alaska in the works for a while. The standard 10-day Alaska cruise out of San Francisco has four ports-of-call (Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and Victoria) and a sightseeing day in Glacier Bay -- with five days of just sailing. Quilters on the quilting cruise would be taking classes in technique, sewing up a storm, and doing projects during the "in-between" days.




The fiancee was all for doing this, but they were pressing her for doubling-up with another quilter in her cabin, and she was notso-hotso with that option. When she looked into the pricing for a single cabin, it was only $300 less than taking me along, where I would be available to Sherpa her luggage and defend her from bears. What made it click for me is that my CPA renews this year, and I had a bunch of Continuing Professional Education courses to work through.




So, while the fiancee happily cut and sewed fabric, I cranked through 65 hours of "Investment Alternatives", "Key Performance Indicators", "Ethics for California CPAs", "Risk-Based Auditing", and "Individual Income Tax", while probably eating more than $30 of food per day (being that I tried to keep with the "low carb; high fat" diet plan).




Again, we're not totally unpacked and such, but there's a bunch of fun I intend to share over the coming days.

76 The game, "No Man's Sky" didn't live-up to expectations. The creator is the newest "Peter Molyneaux" of game designers.

While "Fable" and "No Man's Sky" are decent games, the developers promised much more than they delivered.

The Larger Debate remains...

When developers oversell before they release, isn't it ultimately upon the consumer to take a "Wait-and-See" approach?

The only two Series I bought, sight-unseen were Morrowind-Series and Halo.

I have not spent more that thirty dollars on any game, minus those two Series.

83 There's a simple piece of logic you can use to debunk all of the global warming alarmists, and it seems to drive them into a frothing rage every time I find occasion to use it.

Fossil fuels are, by their nature, composed of carbon that was in the lifecycle (atmosphere and biosphere) during other eras in which Earth supported life. TL;DR, we're not creating anything new, we're just rereleasing stuff that had already been here and got sequestered in a rock formation.

Restoring atmospheric/biospheric carbon oxides to pre-fossilization levels can not induce a runaway greenhouse effect, since the eras those fossils came from did not have any such thing. The global warming apocalypse is based on an incorrect assumption that we're introducing something new to a system that can't handle it, instead of returning something to a system that handled it quite well in the past.

Being a "Browns Fan" aided that notion five years ago.

This one drives me wild. Any system can work if you have the right people in charge. If you could be sure you always had the right people in charge, dictatorship would be the ideal form of government.

The trick is to devise a system of government that kinda works even when you have half-breed Marxist shitheads in charge.

182 Okay, the Leela story.

My cat, Leela, has over the past couple of months, developed a sort of "non-shedded fur" thing. In that vast amounts of hair form these thick crusts along the rear half of her body.

And before you say anything, yeah, I should have combed it out vigilantly. That is what non-cat people would say anyway. Cat people know what it means to comb out a cat's coat. It involves a lot of near death experiences.

So, she developed these thick shields on her rear-body which made me totally understand how fingernails are just hair massed together. They were tough and hard. Like, um body claws or something. Like an armadillo (which is another mammal).

So today, I cut them off on one side. I used a scissors, and amazingly, she didn't hiss or bite or anything. It was like, "Yeah, yeah, get 'em off me." I was a) sober and b) really careful not to get close to the skin. I'm not an idiot. Well, no, I am, but I'm not THAT kind of idiot. Like a kid with a sandwich, I just cut off the crusts.

So I did that. Come home after a long day at work, and got her food out, and saw...it.

Where I'd trimmed, there was a red spot, red with blood, about the size of my thumbnail.

Now, I KNOW I didn't cut her. She'd have let me know that. Trust me.

But somehow I must have weakened some defense she had prepared against...something. I don't know. I feel like Scotty, beaming up some salt vampire and not realizing that it wasn't Crewman Greene after all.

Funny thing is, she's not mad at me. Still wants to be petted. Purrs.

AND, for everyone screaming "Take her to the vet!" sorry but no can do. Yes, I should. But you have no idea what having no money means. Hell, I cannot afford to take myself to the vet, er, doctor, if anything serious happens. My car has first priority, money-wise, because that's how I earn what money I earn.

Anyway, she seems fine. She will probably live another forty years, but she's given me a reason to feel guilty forever. So, you know, that's an impact.

Thank you, everyone, for asking.

I'd think that a Day-1 patch backs up the notion that it's not a finished product and they knew it wasn't, and were rushing to correct as many flaws as they could before people got their hands on it.

As is, I think the saddest part of the story is that it could have been a really good game, a lot of the elements of one are there, but it falls short and lands in the zone of mediocrity thanks to the cut content and undelivered expectations.

231 Oh, gosh, cat mats. They're the worst.

And some cats that have owned me have had fur that comes in at damn near the color of their skin, so it's just *fiendishly* hard to tell where skin ends and fur begins. Even in good bright natural light.

But also not a lot of margin between the skin and the fur into which one can painstakingly work a scissor blade. Oh boy! Half a millimeter before the mat starts!

So as slowly and carefully as I've done that job (and it can take hours and be exhausting) I've still gotten an occasional indignant yowl and slap from Kitteh, after the scissors have inflicted a nick.

Our vet reminds me that cats' skins are differently innervated than those of humans, and that they soak up claw punctures and slashes from one another all the time without being too troubled. And they heal superfast. I still feel wretched after any such slip. So, Chasm, you have a kindred spirit here.

237 I have not read most of the comments and mine will likely be OT even here. But the sidebar link to the little man that stopped on his way into school for the pledge of allegiance (and a private prayer) gives me an idea on how to shame the Colin Kapernic (sp) crowd. All NFL stadiums have huge screens to display images. They could make a slideshow of images including and like that kid showing respect for our country to run during the anthem (yes I know you are supposed to be looking at the flag but the people that are, are not the target audience). People that ignore the flag will look at the screen and see what personal love for what America should be displayed.

I think they mean this:

Section 3.

He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive ambassadors and other public ministers; he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States.

Okay, the Leela story.

My cat, Leela, has over the past couple of
months, developed a sort of "non-shedded fur" thing. In that vast
amounts of hair form these thick crusts along the rear half of her body.

And
before you say anything, yeah, I should have combed it out vigilantly.
That is what non-cat people would say anyway. Cat people know what it
means to comb out a cat's coat. It involves a lot of near death
experiences.

So, she developed these thick shields on her
rear-body which made me totally understand how fingernails are just hair
massed together. They were tough and hard. Like, um body claws or something. Like an armadillo (which is another mammal).

So
today, I cut them off on one side. I used a scissors, and amazingly,
she didn't hiss or bite or anything. It was like, "Yeah, yeah, get 'em
off me." I was a) sober and b) really careful not to get close to the
skin. I'm not an idiot. Well, no, I am, but I'm not THAT kind of idiot.
Like a kid with a sandwich, I just cut off the crusts.

So I did that. Come home after a long day at work, and got her food out, and saw...it.

Where I'd trimmed, there was a red spot, red with blood, about the size of my thumbnail.

Now, I KNOW I didn't cut her. She'd have let me know that. Trust me.

But
somehow I must have weakened some defense she had prepared
against...something. I don't know. I feel like Scotty, beaming up some
salt vampire and not realizing that it wasn't Crewman Greene after all.

Funny thing is, she's not mad at me. Still wants to be petted. Purrs.

AND,
for everyone screaming "Take her to the vet!" sorry but no can do. Yes,
I should. But you have no idea what having no money means. Hell, I
cannot afford to take myself to the vet, er, doctor, if anything serious happens. My car has first priority, money-wise, because that's how I earn what money I earn.

Anyway,
she seems fine. She will probably live another forty years, but she's
given me a reason to feel guilty forever. So, you know, that's an
impact.

Thank you, everyone, for asking.

If it were me and Leela -- I'd look to clean that area gently.....maybe soap and water, maybe witch-hazel....then I'd be looking to use something like neosporin on it. I'd want to research each step online specifically for cats. Maybe you end with rubbing alcohol to clean and polysporin to cover -- whatever.

That she's a happy girl makes it likely this is something that you can work through together. Just gotta find the right goops and validate them against the internet.

246 Had a terrible problem with reoccurring earaches the ENT discerned it was a calcification in my parotid gland. As soon as this latest infection cleared he was going to remove it. In the interim, while cleaning my coffee pot, the tiny light bulb in my brain lit up.

I started pouring a cap full of white vinegar into my ear 3Xs a day and rinsing my mouth in the area with vinegar. (Go easy with that until you get used to it. And do not do it if you have a ruptured drum)

The pain quickly ceased and the infection quickly cleared. I cancelled the operation but continued the procedure. Within a year I believe the calcification left.

A friend used peroxide. The residue of using peroxide like that is water in your ear.

267 So I ate at a restaurant/Inn in West Va called the Bavarian Inn. Kind of swanky. After dinner saw a wall of framed signed pics of past guests. Reagan, elder Bush, several of Ted Kennedy, a young looking Hitlery, Bob Dole, Ted Turner to name a few. Pretty nuts place.

Attending the dinner were my parents (both Trump supporters), my younger brother (totally a-political, just doesn't follow politics at all) and his wife (hardcore leftist, I mean hardcore). I brought up politics and the news lately in general. I was polite but stated my views. Laws and justice etc. etc. She was proud that Hillzdog broke the law and got away with it. It's like street cred in Gangsta Rap, she stuck it to the man. House of Cards is like x porn vs reality of xxx porn. She is about to get a degree in like master social worker or whatever. So my question is I guess, if the rule of law no longer applies to you but it does it does to me. Once people that play games for millions of $$$ are not oppressed then we should be good.

We will soon reach the point, in the debasement and corruption of civilization, where everything is illegal, and the law only exists to punish the enemies of the regime. This is almost the default condition throughout the entire history of man. The friends of the regime get a pass for their activities, as long as they toe the line and aren't needed as a scapegoat.

At that point, there'll be no point in trying to live as a law-abiding citizen anymore. It's a losing proposition. Anything you have can be taken away at a moment's notice, with the flimsiest of pretexts. You know, kinda like civil asset forfeiture.

We're very close to that point already.

308 The other thing I know about Islam is this:
There is no such thing as "equality" in Islam.
In no way, shape or form.
Either your boot is on their necks or their swords are at yours.
The whole "live and let live" ethic is a complete fiction to them.
How do I know this?
Because I listen to what they themselves say.

I'd just call it regular old tyranny. Doesn't need a special label. Dear Leader sits at the top, his friends get the table scraps, everyone else gets screwed. That's the default management structure of the human species.

Every time we've ever improved upon that, those who imagine themselves to be a special elite feel butthurt about not being in control, and eventually start scheming to take power again.

336 I'm going to sleep in minutes. When I come in my house after a day in garden, best thing to clean hands is Dial Bar Aoap & nail brush I bought at Lee Valley online. I've bought things from Lee Valley for years & they have free shipping 3-6x year. $40 is Free Shipping minimum. I placed an order for high quality hose guides last time & used 3 up to replace cheap ones that I broke by stepping on. They had another free shipping last month, I wanted more hose guides & a few other things. I had list I misplaced & added a Felco 13 replacement blade. Felco pruners are costly, but worth it. I need new blade 1x per month. $18 at Lee Valley, no sales tax or shipping.

Free shipping is over but I suggest all w/gardens & hardware, household needs compare $ because I spent close to $60 more for long handled pruners to reach my former climbing roses ( 2 died, 6 cut to ankle level spring 2015) & those are $42-44 dollars.I ordered from ARS advertiser in 2010 or next year.

Good Night, I hoped I'd save some $ for other Horde Members.
I'm getting up very early tomorrow because I want to fertilize roses one last time & tie up my favorite pink/white blend climbers (my favorites & no longer sold & ones that were cut off arbors spring last year).

It's a multiple choice test, where the original was probably fill in the blank, so the website it's on filled in some spurious, anachronistic answers to trip up LIV types taking it.

That's also something just about every high school teacher and college professor does. There's usually an answer that's badly, hilariously wrong but will sound plausible to somebody who has no freaking idea what's going on and is trying to sound smart.

361 The "1912 quiz" was obviously a modern multiple choice quiz that was based on a 1912 test. You can see a couple of snippets of the actual test in the illustrations. It demanded written answers.

#11 was a dead giveaway:

11. Give three duties of the president.

Commanding the armed forces, proposing bills to Congress, making sure laws are enforced

Commanding the armed forces, signing bills from Congress, leading America in prayer

Appearing on TV, flying in Air Force One, being awesome


Obviously, C is correct. (/sarc)


I took it and got 82%, which was scored as "Grade: A. Congratulations! You might be headed to Harvard." In what universe is 82 an A? Talk about grade inflation.

Almost all the questions I missed had to do with grammar. I seem to have somehow absorbed it intuitively, in that I can write without sounding like a drooling imbecile, but those questions may as well have been written in a foreign language for all I understood them.

The war was not "officially" declared over until Aug 20, 1866. Lee surrendered the army of Northern VA April 9, 1866. Kerby Smith surrendered the last army of the confederacy on June 2, 1866. Gettysburg ended in July 1863.

397 Just went and found Hillary's speech yesterday at the National Baptist Convention. Couldn't watch much of it she is so grating but looks like she managed to avoid breaking out into black slang or cough up a lung in the few parts I sampled.. So then this is the best of Hillary Clinton? The smug, evil look on her face and harsh, mocking voice, the painfully obvious insincerity? And yet she is[probably still the like winner in November.

One of her supporters at the speech gushed to a reporter she likes her because "...she is trustworthy and wants to help the people." It just boggles the mind. To live side by side in a country filled with such delusional fools is worrisome, to put it mildly.

400 Good Morning Morons. Today is Friday, September 09, 2016. On this day in 1965 the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development was established when one of the worst Presidents in history signed the "Housing and Urban Development Act" into law. This unconstitutional POS law was passed by an overwhelming Democrat majority in both the Senate and House. It immediately set off to become one of the most corrupt agencies in the Federal Government. 1965 was a very bad year for the US Constitution. The country was in the total control of Democrats with the Democrats having > 60 votes in the Senate. No, it wasn't those evil baby-boomers who began destroying the country in the 60s. This was the so-called "greatest generation".

401 DOJ granted immunity to the IT guy who erased Scankles' server which was under supeona. Why? If he had know it was under supeona he would also be guilty of a felony. But immunity is normally only granted for testimony when it is needed to grab bigger fish. So at the time the FBI granted immunity they were expececting to indict Ssankles. So what happened? Was it Comey? Was it ugly ankles Lynch? Was it even higher level at twisted brain 'Bama? Or was it all three? I go with the last one. Most corrupt regyme ever.

402 More sources have come forward that show that Scankles lied to the FBI about her "knowledge" of the classification markings. And further, after reading this story you will see that the FBI plainly knew she was lying and did nothing. Comey must either resign or be impeached. And it would be even better if the ones who ordered him to lie were to be impeached, the fugly AG and her stupid boss. But neither of those will ever happen. If we had a 100 member Republican Senate it would not happen.

407 That group of militant atheist nazis from WI has lawfared another school into submission, this one in MO. It would be nice if someone were to research these goons and find out where they are getting their money. Of course, it doesn't take much money to send out threatening letters, but it does to initiate a civil suit. It would also be nice to get some of these local judges to explain how an atheist individual from WI can meet the requirements for standing in a case in MO involving an elementary school.


Standing Rules:


Injury-in-fact: The plaintiff must have suffered or imminently will suffer injury; an invasion of a legally protected interest that is (a) concrete and particularized, and (b) actual or imminent (that is, neither conjectural nor hypothetical; not abstract). The injury can be either economic, non-economic, or both.


Causation: There must be a causal connection between the injury and the conduct complained of, so that the injury is fairly traceable to the challenged action of the defendant and not the result of the independent action of some third party who is not before the court


Redressability: It must be likely, as opposed to merely speculative, that a favorable court decision will redress the injury


Since the first requirement can not be met, then the second can not either. But we have learned through a long history of rulings that liberal standing is damn easy to get while "real" standing is impossible to get for conservatives. (Or owners of automotive company debt. )

That's the suggestion I was responding to. Many of the questions would make no sense if they were fill in the blank with no multiple choice. If you get a question "The gulf stream is a _______ ocean current", how the hell are you supposed to know what they're talking about, without also getting the multiple choice options, "cold" and "warm"?

As soon as Barnicle said "Aleppo, the Syrian city at the epicenter of..." all Johnson had to do was gesture towards his ear and laugh and say "I had a buzz in my earpiece and I thought you said A LEOPARD (or "leper" or some other near-homonym.) And then go on with a canned defeat-ISIS answer.

Everybody on that set has dealt with faulty earpieces many times over and would easily have believed it. Played right, no one would have been the wiser. My takeaway from it is that Gary Johnson is a slow-witted man.

All assets would be run by friends of Hillary (as was done with her brother's deal with the Haiti gold mines), and foreign policy dictated by the highest bidder.

All those that were at the front lines for Trump would be punished, which she has already basically threatened ... to send them into the shadows or something. with SCOTUS under her thumb, I think the end of liberty would come at light speed, as many times only a 5-4 decision has stopped the worst of their assault on freedom.

462 That W. Texas field is wide-open. No trees for the greenies to gnash teeth over.

There's bound to be a species of lizard or turtle or minnow or prairie chicken they can use to shut it down.



Nah. We ate them.

463 458 From a Sept. 1 article in Mercury News:

OAKLAND - Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane didn't stand during the playing of the national anthem before Thursday night's game against the Raiders, joining the protest started last week by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

No, the law is a spider web: lethal to the weak, but only an annoyance to the powerful.

472 Talking of boycotting, which Ace seemed to be pushing yesterday, my recollections of what happened after the major league baseball players went on strike...

Attendance dropped. Many people decided they were done with major league baseball. Over the coming decade many baseball stadiums, accustomed to seating sixty to seventy thousand were downsized and replaced into the forty to fifty thousand range. With fewer tickets to sell, Ticket prices and concession and parking prices shot through the roof, putting a trip to the ball park out of the reach of most families.

That's my recollection, anyway.

Republicans would have you believe this is yet another example of their stupidity or incompetence, but that's a lie. There's been a coup and they're in on it. They're fucking traitors.

Fuck the GOP.

480 Suspect some Soros-subsidized psychologist consulted on the "take a knee" alternative, to spoil the cultural icon of Doing A Tebow. Think it will work?

I'm just gonna reduce expenditures, and focus support efforts on organizations which reflect positively on, and are in alignment with my core values and principals.

Haven't spent a dime in Target in many months.

But, it's not a boycott.

495 Looks like that Florida skank lawyer Wendi Adelson and her family are going to get away with hiring a hit man to murder her ex-husband, so that she could get custody of their kids.

One of Wendi's ex-boyfriends told the cops that she had told him her brother was looking to hire a hitman to off her ex, and was going to pay $15,000.

Then two thugs, who just coincidentally happen to be tied to Adelson's brother through a girlfriend, drive from Miami to Tallahassee to murder Markel at his home (and later deposit $15,000 in the bank).

But the cops say there's not enough evidence to arrest the Adelsons, even though it's obvious that they arranged the hit, and it's obvious why they did it. (And p.s., Wendi Adelson has already changed the kids' last name)
