The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Every one of the mandates — and you look in country after country, state after state — you look at when the mask mandates went in — the incidents went up exponentially after the mandates. Restaurants, nobody can eat in a restaurant, there’s no science behind any of that. Middle seat missing on the airplane, you really think you’re like 12 inches from the other guy instead of six inches, it really makes a difference? None of it really makes any sense, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)

Quote II

It is all very familiar, and very depressing. Find me a man so vast an imbecile that he seriously believes that this prohibition would work. What would become of the millions of revolvers already in the hands of the American people if not in New York, then at least everywhere else? (I own two and my brother owns at least a dozen, though neither of us has fired one since the close of the Liberty Loan drives.) H.L. Mencken

Quote III

‘It is my honour on behalf of the president of the United States, to announce that henceforth the men and women of the United States Space Force will be known as guardians. ‘Soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and guardians will be defending our nation for generations to come.’ Vice president Mike Pence


Quote IV

Losing your life is not the worst thing that can happen. The worst thing is to lose your reason for living. Jo Nesbo

Quote V

“We can’t go anywhere — any of us. We’re landlocked on this island, and it’s lots of Canadians who are affected.” Mark Sultana, Canadian Entrepreneur

Quote VI

“I will have to say, as a civil servant, I will be helpful through a period of time, and then I will have to say, this experience has been a bit overwhelming. It has been very difficult on my family … I think what was done over the last week to my family.”
Dr. Deborah Birx

Overwhelming? You wouldn't know overwhelming if it hit you up alongside the head. Dumb bint Now I'm giving dumb bints a bad name.

Quote VII

“When you vote to pass out free money, you lose your soul and you abandon forever any semblance of moral or fiscal integrity,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)

Quote VIII

“A Nobel Prize laureate, Bob Dylan, and they call him a hate speech monger. This is amazing to me,” Alexander Gendler, a Chicago book publisher

Walmart is known for "Roll back pricing". The DOJ says they were pushing other things besides the pricing.

The Justice Department on Tuesday announced it is suing Walmart, accusing the company of helping to fuel the U.S. opioid crisis by unlawfully distributing controlled substances at its pharmacies around the country.

The department's lawsuit alleges that for years, Walmart's pharmacies unlawfully filled thousands of prescriptions for opioids without required care and investigation, including prescriptions pharmacists knew were suspect.

The lawsuit also accuses Walmart of failing to detect as many as hundreds of thousands of suspicious orders of opioids and report them to the Drug Enforcement Administration, even as the company allegedly knew that its internal monitoring systems were "grossly inadequate" for years.

In a statement responding to the lawsuit, Walmart accused the Justice Department's investigation of being " tainted by historical ethics violations" and that the lawsuit "invents a legal theory that unlawfully forces pharmacists to come between patients and their doctors."

Social anhedonia. Or why some people are happy that many Christmas parties this year have been canceled.

‘So people who are not feeling happy may think that they are failing, and that there is something profoundly wrong with them, rather than just seeing it as a manifestation of a disorder that is not their fault.’

Medically defined as an inability to find pleasure in normally pleasurable experiences, there are two forms: social and physical. Most of those with the condition have both.

Social anhedonia involves not wanting to spend time with others because it is not enjoyable. It is distinct from social anxiety, which is driven by a fear of social situations

I guess I lead a sheltered life. I never get to see this kind of excitement.

Two women got high on synthetic heroin, went to McDonald’s to demand free food – then bared their backsides at staff when they were refused, police say. Jessica Harvey and Jasmine Parker, both 28, are said to have exposed themselves at a McDonald’s in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, on Sunday night. They allegedly showed up at the restaurant’s drive-thru asking for a freebie. But when staff said no Harvey and Parker decided to flash ‘their rear ends to the employees as they road around the business,’ it is alleged. Police were called, with one officer noticing that Harvey – who was driving the car – appeared to be under the influence of drugs as she stepped out of it.

Where does the ACLU stand on handguns? Just ask
American Civil Liberties Union of Utah attorney Aaron Kinikini .

All of that makes this story all the more interesting. It seems an ACLU attorney was arrested based on his actions with a firearm.

Just one day after the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah announced it had hired Aaron Kinikini as its new staff attorney, Salt Lake police arrested him after they say he fired a gun at a car in which his children were riding.

The mother of at least three of Kinikini’s children arrived to pick them up at his residence Friday evening. The woman and three children were inside the vehicle when Kinikini “stood behind the vehicle, preventing the victim from leaving,” according to a police booking affidavit.

Kinikini told police that the woman “drove at him at a high rate of speed,” the affidavit states. Police say he then produced a handgun and fired at the vehicle, hitting the “driver side front and rear tires.”

The report does not indicate whether anyone in the vehicle was injured by the gunfire.

Kinikini was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of aggravated assault, three counts of domestic violence in the presence of a child, unlawful detention, criminal mischief and illegal discharge of a firearm.

A spokesman for the ACLU of Utah declined to comment Saturday about Kinikini’s arrest.

The Great Reset, I can hardly wait.

World Economic Forum is coming! And eating bugs, fungus, drinking sewage too!

The World Economic Forum unveiled a preview of The Great Reset for its Davos 2021 Agenda. Just so you know, the Biden administration is all in on this. John Kerry, a climate czar, was lauding it just last week.

The meeting of elites from corporations and the political sphere around the world will be digital due to COV.

This is not a conspiracy theory. The Great Reset is an actual movement. It’s real. The globalists are excitedly using COV, in their own words, as an excuse for the launch of globalist hell.

Wow. The ONT cleans up well.

On December 22, 1808, Ludwig van Beethoven—by then an established composer and a renowned piano virtuoso—conducted a concert of his own works at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. The program included the premiers of Beethoven’s Fifth and Sixth symphonies, his Fourth Piano Concerto, an improvised fantasy for piano performed by the composer himself (which was transcribed later and published as the Fantasia in G minor, Op. 77), and a concluding piece for piano, orchestra, and chorus (the Choral Fantasy) that Beethoven barely finished in time for the concert. Also on the program were Beethoven’s concert aria Ah! perfido and the Gloria and Sanctus sections from the composer’s Mass in C.

Had he used his magical reindeer he wouldn't have been a Genius Award Winner.

RIO LINDA, Calif. (AP) — Santa found himself a little more tied up than usual this time of year.

A Northern California man impersonating Santa Claus and flying on a powered parachute was rescued Sunday after he became entangled in power lines, authorities said.

The incident happened shortly after the man took off near a school in Rio Linda to deliver candy canes to children in his community. He flew into a maze of power lines and wound up suspended in them, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman told KCRA-TV.


No wonder why Rush Limbaugh discussed Rio Linda over the years.

Disabled and now a model. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

About 1 in every 700 babies in the United States are born with Down syndrome. Down syndrome is a condition where a person is born with an extra chromosome. This extra chromosome can cause complications in the development of the babies’ bodies and brains during pregnancy. Even though people with Down syndrome might struggle more than those without it, their condition doesn’t stop them from being strong and successful.

One inspiring success story is that of Kennedy Garcia. We at Bright Side admire her tenacity and what she’s done in her life. So we decided to get in touch and ask her mom for an interview so that we could share her inspirational story with you, and a photo gallery of the beautiful Kennedy.

You know what's really interesting about the pregnancy of Mary, also her sister Elizabeth?

Gabe spoiled the gender-reveal party.

Seriously, other than "carrying it low, probably a boy" kind of observations, knowing the sex of a baby before it's born is quite a new power.

'Way back when, Milady's second pregnancy, we went in for an ultrasound. Just to be sure it was really two babies, not some huge or mutant thing. But we didn't see the genitals.

So, with our three, we never knew their sex until their birth...."

36 I posted this about brainwashing back in May.

1. Isolation. Isolate victims from family and friends. (Quarantine *everyone*!)
2. Monopolization of Perception. The abuser keeps your attention on them. (Every famous person, every commercial, every day - "We're all in this together")
3. Induced Debility Exhaustion (The news media's apparent primary function)

41 4. Threats ("If you do not obey, you will go to jail")
5. Occasional Indulgences (Pot stores, Liquor stores open, a "stimulus" check)
6. Demonstrating "Omnipotence" (KAREN is always watching)
7. Enforcing Trivial Demands ("Stay six feet apart", "Don't walk alone in the woods or on the beach", "No haircuts")
8. Degradation ("Wear the mask")

This is what is going on in my opinion. Fundamental transformation via mass mind control. Can't convince me otherwise, and certainly not since I looked up this list.

I wouldn't consider the Doors or The Dead Pop Rock...sure, each wrote a few songs with Pop Appeal, but that wasn't their bag.

But, no denying Truckin' was a pop-ish tune made for radio / single release.

The Eagles are / were radio play monsters and their Greatest Hits might still be the all time greatest seller.

some of the Eagles stuff is ok. i get why people like The Doors. But really, they could not be worse examples of how to live a life. Jim Morrison is buried in a grave in Paris because it is the right of anyone who dies in Paris to do so. His fans go there and spread graffiti all around. It is a spectacle and also a tragedy. If they thought for one moment, they would realize they would be better off at The Louvre or Rodin Museum.

333 garrett, I agree that The Eagles had talent, but I just can't think of any band band from the last 30 years who raved, "Yeah, the Eagles were a huge influence for our sound!"

Posted by: logprof, Ultramontane Trumpist at December 22, 2020 10:57 PM (oZuI0)

334 I wouldn't consider the Doors or The Dead Pop Rock...sure, each wrote a few songs with Pop Appeal, but that wasn't their bag.

But, no denying Truckin' was a pop-ish tune made for radio / single release.

The Eagles are / were radio play monsters and their Greatest Hits might still be the all time greatest seller.

Posted by: garrett at December 22, 2020 10:42 PM (2jgX6)


I didn't mean to say they were pop. They were rock bands for sure. I just was saying I don't rate them very high amomg pop or rock bands. I would put the Supremes in the pop category and rate them way above both.

335 President Donald Trumps most vocal advocates within the White House
have determined that both U.S. Code and the Constitution contain
language that requires Vice President Mike Pence to reject unlawful
Electoral College certificates, but Pence must act by no later than
Wednesday, December 23.

hmm

They are saying that since the GWAMP states violated the Equal Protection Clause, Pence is required to NOT accept their electors but must act by tomorrow.
Calling this the #PenceCard.

They should be sued for pain and suffering when they do this including the companies that hire them.
Criminally prosecuted as well. Withholding pain medication and any medication prescribed by a doctor to somebody sick by a 3rd party is a crime I believe. If not, it should be.

Been seriously considering trying to talk my husband into a mask burning party...we're both introverts and we worry about op sec (for those of you who might not be aware, "greater Houston area" does NOT narrow it down!), so I'm not so sure about it, but if we don't start actually displaying our opinions instead of quietly seething to ourselves, nothing will change.

417 Fun reading, I suppose I should save it for the Book Thread, but it is also music related:
"The Lexicon of Musical Invective" by Nikolai Slonimsky.
In which, scalding reviews of now beloved classical works are collected, in chronological order, in the local newspapers at the time of their premiere.
It includes an index of the invective/perjorative adjectives in the back. For instance, if a critic used the word "caterwauling" in his critique, it could be found on the following pages...

and of course Aldi never had another. Although, when Milady was walking out with her purchase, a woman exclaimed that her mother had one of those and loved it.

Want to cook? You must borrow kitchen gadgets from a library. (The writer was never #25 on a library waitlist for a popular book.)

The best part: Dissenters don't live in the city. They live in abandoned 18th century villages (!?!) or small communities that trade among themselves. (Obvious solution: lock the re-setters in a walled city and the rest of us live normally.)

565 Physical anhedonia can be a real problem. It happens with drug (including alcohol) use where your mind adjusts to the chemical so much that you cannot experience pleasure without it. It's not just drugs though.

After covid hit and everything got shut down, then the riots and all that crap, for months during late spring/summer, I slept roughly 12-16 hours/day. It wasn't that I was afraid of covid; I wasn't. I just didn't have any reason to get out of bed. I was (and still am) over 50, 30 lbs overweight (maybe 20 now), had a big hernia that absolutely needed fixing but nope, and aside from one lawsuit to get justice for Dorkie Dork and my now ex-girlfriend (which is on-going), unemployed, and had nothing to look forward to for the rest of my life. Why get out of bed when I could just sleep? Not even AoS could get me out of bed before sundown. It also didn't help that I moved my home office into the front (south-facing) room just before our miserably hot summer. (I did, thankfully, reverse that unwise decision.) I did, however, really miss all the regulars here during the day. Spent a lot of time in the ONT.

570 I've always been a bit of a
loner and have some degree of social anhedonia, but what is going on now
is getting to me, which means it must be hell on normal people. For a
while, I resolved to use the time to complete projects I'd put aside -
finishing lyrics to the album missing from my desert island discs
compendium, working on the movie idea/screenplay that came to me from
one of the lyrics I'd written, playing guitar again, but none of that
really energized me anymore given the impending crash of civilization as
we know it. And I really have nothing else to do with my time.

571 My father was a career civil servant, had a family, went into
private practice as an attorney after retiring, developed progressive
supranuclear palsy (PSP) around the age of 80 and died at 86 after a
sad, and miserable, progression of his disease. Aside from not having a
family, I'd rather not hang around toiling for another 30-odd years
just so I can drag my carcass to its deathbed and die of asphyxiation or
something.

578 SFGoth, give me a sense of the situation in your 'hood (my friend lives there). Sounds like a nasty lock-down, but you never know without first-hand details.

He's got two school-age kids, and last we talked he didn't seem extremely happy about the situation. Just wondering. Here in SD things are kinda sorta weirdly "normal". Except for the mask idiocy, and of course restaurants and gyms, there's no visible extreme departure from the usual. Traffic's 80% back, etc.

As with many things, Heinlein was way ahead of his time on that.

I remember him having one of his characters stuff napkins in the heels of his shoes to change his gait and make him less recognizable at a distance.

Won (and lost, it happens) some big cases on the Ellis Act, SLAPP, land use regulations. I handled 1 jury trial, five years ago, for some friends (discrimination against tenants with children) and the jury came back in our favor a few weeks before my father died so I was able to go back and see him. Finally collected on that suit last year and have been living off that. I had to stop working in March, 2019, when Dorkie Dork was nearing her end and with things that happened after that, I just couldn't go back to working at the time. Now this.

664 re the Catholic Money Transfer Problem

National Catholic Register
The TinyUrl https://tinyurl.com/y93geg3r

Excerpts
The timing of the fund transfers, and their increasing amounts, coincide with Australian Cardinal George Pells arrival as prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy in 2014, and his subsequent return to Australia in 2017 to face trial for sexual abuse charges.
Allegations were made in the autumn that hundreds of thousands of euros were sent from the Secretariat of State to Australia around the time of Cardinal Pells trial.

693 Umm, Cicero, Hebrew doesn't actually have vowels (as letters distinct from consonants). As I learned it, vowels (dots around the letter) were added to make learning the words easier. I do think the vowels are cool though. And like Whoopi Goldberg hyping Dokter Jill Biden, I could be full of squirt, but that is what I remember. Indeed, I think it was 3rd grade when I completed an entire year of Hebrew grammar lessons in the final two weeks of thrice-a-week Hebrew school.

He's an accomplished open water swimmer (Channel on first attempt, good time in the Catalina-Palos Verdes swim, also in the Manhattan circumnavigation, whatever it's called). Starting about 9 years ago his "birthday party" has been a pentathlon of swimming running biking hiking rowing, and the swimming was this time of year, when the water (never "warm") can be low-mid 50s. I wisely bailed on the swim portion one year, when the air temp was .... 43. At the beach, which is pretty much unheard of.

731 Mainly what bums me out is that I've always wanted to have some kind of life in the arts - music or writing. Very few times -- though it has happened -- has a legal project captured my imagination and desire. When I had a complex appellate brief, I would physically cut up the paragraphs, put them on a big table, and then move them around to where I thought they best fit. I would do deep, deep research, digging into legislative history and construction with other statutes.

But really, I want to work on my story about the British WW2 vet ("BGF" - British grandfather - I don't have actual names yet) who comes to terms on his deathbed with his hatred for Germans (they killed his father in France when he was 5) and the fact that his grandson married a German woman and gave BGF his great-grandson. (Oh, and BGF saved the life of GGF during the war - meaning, BGF's granddaughter in law and great-grandson would not otherwise exist - but BGF doesn't know it) and the grandkids figure it out just before BGF dies.)

That does not mean, I don't think one book, in the Library of Congress, wouldn't fill the bill. Just not SciFi.

821 was pretty young when I got my wisdom teeth removed. I
was a bit younger than 29. Back then, they gave you a bottle of liquid
medicine. All you had to do was take a bit and you were out. It didn't
really matter if the stuff was good, because you were out.

Now
I have had a few root canals over the years. They don't give you
crapola. I guess it is ok as I survived. But these guys wont give pain
killers or antibiotics. They think of it as them or you. They are not in
pain, hell they are getting paid. They love a root canal, it is like a
big score for a salesmen.

896 The dentist I had for just about my entire life retired recently. He was 27 when I started going to him, just about fresh out of school. At the time the office told me he was among the new breed of dentists that had all the latest techniques etc etc. Frigging dude was amazing. You never felt a thing. Not the needles, drilling, nothing. Never any pain after. I was able to literally devour a sub sandwich 45 min after getting a root canal. Amazing frigging dentist. I was scared shit when he retired this year, but I got lucky because the girl that replaced him was mentored by him. My dentist also taught, and she was a student of his, so I guess he literally picked his successor from the crop of students. She recently did a cap on a tooth with an ancient filing. Man she was good. She nailed the fit of the cap on the first try and the color is nuts on. I can see why he chose her. She frigging channels him.

910 I said long ago Trump wants PA more than any other state. We all feel we are the one, but anyone with a clue would see this. PA a should have been his is if were a fair fight. Nothing could be more stark really. Sure, GA, but that GA is gone. It is like VA. We know VA has tones of conservatives, tones that will come out at least in a presidential year. The problem is they have a ton and more lefties, wine mom's, and those who have no clue at all.

912 The thing with PA is it is so stark. If you go to most of the state, it is as pro Trump as any place. Too bad Pittsburgh sucks. But the real problem is Philly. They will created as many ballots as they need. They learned the cheaters credo long ago. Don't ask for permission, ask for forgiveness. And they never think they will ever have to ask for forgiveness.

916 Good question, Mlii. I'm not a big believer in Pence's courage. He backed down from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act when he was governor of that state between you and me.

if you can't prove the obvious fraud there, it would be hard to prove it anywhere. There is a reason Trump spent so much time there. I have seen it myself. There is not state more pro Trump than PA. Maybe WV but the stakes were not as high. Really, PA is the heart of the Trump campaigns. And he knew the cheats were out and about.

"The Devil threw everything he could at God's chosen man, from a Russia hoax and phony impeachment to Twitter censorship and Antifa riots. Trump stood bravely against them all -- fighting back with the light of truth and his massive rallies. He even managed to deliver us a lifesaving vaccine in record time, even though none of us will take it because it's probably the Mark of the Beast."

920 what do people expect Pence to do? He has been steadfast while so many have gone wobbly. I think many want him to be someone he is not. They want him to fix problems of the past that are no longer the issues we face. If Pence is our big problem, we are in good stead. The problem is Pence is the least of our problems.

It is not just PA. You need a hell lot more than than that to win the whole thing, and winning the whole thing is the point and the only point. I mention PA because I have been on the ground. I mention it because Trump was obvious he wanted that state, and felt he deserved it. He was right to think that way. If they did not support him, there is something very wrong.

930 Not just fraud, but well thought out and game-planned fraud. They made sure they cheated to get the extra 1 EV from NE, which meant PDT had to wrest away 3 states to get biden below 270. It was a very devious, but intelligent, conspiracy.

There are quite a few GOP traitors that need to be forcefully ejected from Congress, but the two I want to see gone the most are both form Utah.


Romney and Lee simply cannot be allowed to remain.


Lee's up in 2016 and Romney's up in 2024 so let's get that these bastards gone.


They are both actively dangerous traitors.

The desire to grind a boot heel into someone else's face is embedded deep in us. I confess to having felt it at times, and more frequently these dats than ever before.

TeeJ, sorry to hear you aren't feeling more relief. I'm up now cause the leg pain won't let me sleep. Guess on the plus side if they didn't put me on FMLA I wouldn't be up now finishing last night's beer w/ the cat cuddling w/ me. And chatting w/ such fine folks.

You ever feel like AOS is almost therapy? I need to tip Ace before Christmas. But it's not gonna be $100 an hour like the therapist.

1016 Yippee, I get to go back to work today! Over the weekend I came down with what in 2019 we called a chest cold. I couldn't work until I got a test. Fine, I drove 30 miles and had a rapid test. Negative. Not good enough. Had to have another RNA test which finally came back negative (duh). So effing stupid. I'm suppose to get the vaccine today but doubtful since I am still not 100 percent and on an antibiotic.

The abject ingratitude of GOPe members who just were re-elected toward PDJT after all he did to fire up the base, get out the vote, and campaign incessantly for the party is a rank and profound betrayal. It will be gratifying if PDJT elects to crash the GOP and go full throated populist party and platform with it in 2024.

1056 Good morning, ONT'ers! Went down for a nap about 8:30 last night, and now it's almost 5:30 A.M. This cold, or flu is kicking my butt. It manifests mainly as chills and shivering. I take a couple of ibuprofen, and the chills go away for a while, and I can sleep in comfort, but once they wear off, I wake up chilled again. There seems to be effectively zero respiratory involvement, and I am breathing normally. Not stuffed up, any more than normal dry AZ air can bring on.

Just took two more ibu's. Ready to hit the rack again.

I decided to poke around a bit, and see a Substack on Bitcoin by Willie Woo. He claims to have 175,000 subscribers, shelling out $50/month. Can this guy possible be pulling in $8.75M/month for 'data-rich insights"?
