The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

‘Although this victim had only minor injuries, we take this incident seriously.’ Colorado Parks and Wildlife Agency


Quote II

“Now it’s time to arrest Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for prosecutorial misconduct after hiding hundreds of pages of exculpatory evidence! Bragg is on the verge of indicting an innocent former President and top Presidential candidate against the opposing ruling party. Bragg is breaking the law and trying to incite civil unrest with his Soros funded political war. Hold him accountable.” Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA)


Quote III

I need spirituality. I need God, or I cannot cope in this world. Russel Brand

There is only one wrong thing about this settlement. The taxpayers are flipping the bill and not the officials who violated Joseph Kennedy, a high school assistant football, civil rights.

Coach Fired For Praying At Football Game Reinstated To Old Role, Gets Nearly $2 Million Settlement

Joseph Kennedy, a high school assistant football coach fired eight years ago for praying on the field with students, returned to his old position and will receive a $1.78 million settlement.

Board members of the Bremerton School District in Washington voted last week to approve the settlement, which will cover attorney fees incurred by Kennedy in the landmark legal battle that reached the Supreme Court last year. Justices ruled that the public high school violated the First Amendment by placing Kennedy on administrative leave in response to his prayer.

A law suit about poop jokes? No shit!

I bet you could get some intelligent HS students to be more productive at the Fed than what we have now. Overheard in the men's room, "Let's make up more shit as we face these economic issues."

TOPLINE The Federal Reserve raised interest rates again Wednesday to a 16-year high, making borrowing costs between banks even more expensive and shaking off calls to take a timeout on hikes to focus on cooling the banking crisis.

Hey Fed, I have an idea. Why don't you turn off your GD money printing presses!

While we are on economics..........

The bigger bailout

A great deal of attention has focused on the bailout of SVB depositors, but the bigger story is the bailout of other banks. (At least bigger as of today, there are rumors the government may extend the over $250,000 deposit bailout to all banks. You can imagine what I think of that idea.)

David Beckworth has a podcast where Steven Kelly discusses how the new Fed loan facility works. Here’s David:

Beckworth: Daniela Gabor, she wrote something in a similar vein. She said, “Forget about SBV liabilities for a second. The real bailout story is the regime change in the Fed’s treatment of collateral. Par value goes against every risk management commandment of the past 30 years. It turbocharges the monetary power of collateral.”

Kelly explains the problem by considering a situation where banks paid $90 for bonds with a par value of $100, and then the market value fell from $90 to $80:

Kelly: So not only did they say, “Well, we’ll give you the 80 and we’ll calm things down. We’ll replace the 80 that you lost from uninsured depositors being flighty. Nor will we give you 90, which is what you’ve been carrying your books at, so you don’t have to recognize the loss of funding there. We’re going to give you 100, which can solve other problems on your books too.” So that’s super unique. And Daniela’s language is more dramatic than mine and more eloquent than mine, but that’s exactly the point she’s making.

The Fed’s treating these bonds as $100 worth of collateral, despite the fact that the banks paid $90 and the market value is only $80.

Ford Motor Company to be honest?

Ford will begin reporting its financial results by business unit, instead of by region, and will release revised results that will show how the new business units would have performed in 2021 and 2022.
The changes amount to the most detailed look yet by any legacy automaker into the finances behind the EV business.
Wall Street is taking a wait-and-see approach to the changes, but is expecting significant EV unit losses.

I know we have currently employed and formerly employed LEOs here on The ONT. Maybe I'm wrong. But, if LEO are going to raid a home with a legally obtained warrant they must expect that they will be filmed. Cops are pissed off at Astroman. Hey they were on his property. Perhaps they should have worn balaclavas.

The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is suing Afroman for using video footage of their January raid on his home in his music video.

Several deputies have sued the artist claiming he was profiting from the sale of merchandise that included their images, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter. The lawsuit, obtained by The Daily Caller, indicates Afroman was not at his residence at the time of the raid, but his wife was inside the home and managed to record the police in action. Residential surveillance footage also recorded the raid as it unfolded. Members of Adams County Sheriff’s Office insist they didn’t provide consent for their images to be used or profited from.

Florida wants to cut through the red tape.

For a country supposedly built on the notion of pursuing the American Dream and pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, the United States makes it exceptionally hard to get a job.

Over 30% of all workers in the US now need an occupational license—meaning they have to pay the government just for the privilege of going to work. Those fees can be hundreds to thousands of dollars each year, and that doesn’t even include what people must pay to jump through the training and education hoops that various licenses require.

I suppose it isn't funny if your relative was involved. But that's not the case with me. Genius Award Winner.

A man accused of stealing a funeral home van with a dead body inside has been arrested two months later.

Deon Howard, 23, was taken into custody on Sunday after being identified as the wanted suspect during an argument with a police officer conducting a traffic stop. He was found in Green Bay, Wisconsin, which is about 200 miles north of Chicago where the crime took place.

It took its sweet time. But, love finds a way. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A couple who first tried to marry in 1963 but were separated when the bride's parents put a stop to the marriage have finally said their vows as they approach 80 years old after six decades apart.

Len Allbrighton, 79 and Jeanette Steer, 78, were first engaged to be married in the Swinging Sixties after meeting as trainee nurses on the Isle of Wight and had planned to move to Australia to begin a new life together.

But, at just 18 years old, Jeanette needed permission from her parents to marry Len, then 19. At the time, the age of consent to marry in the UK was 21.

30 MisHum, I had an aunt that owned an old planation house in central Virginia, that I visited when I was much younger. There was a riverine stream behind the house, just like that ONT lead picture. I still remember fording that stream and being amazed because I had never seen shallow flowing water before, having been raised in Tidewater Virginia!

38 Well, my son is out of Intensive Care, which is some progress. But he is having an extremely difficult time with swallowing, which means he can't eat or drink anything, and can't even sleep because he feels like he is constantly drowning in his own saliva.

He hasn't had any nutrition in three days, so they are installing a stomach tube tomorrow. They told us to expect this, and they think he will regain this function over time, but it's hard to watch him going through it.

I've heard the first three or four days are the worst after a big surgery like this. If so, then maybe things will start looking up again by the weekend.

I have told this story before, but in any event: My Grandfather was the nicest man I have ever known. Now he spent 22(?) years in the army. Fought in WWII and Korea, so there must have been another side of him. But not once when I knew him, did I EVER see him get angry. Grandma was the sharp temper. Grandpa was a still lake of calm. I asked Mom once if she had ever seen him really angry. She said only once that she could remember. A pair of Jehovah's witnesses had come to the door and Grandma had answered it. Now Grandma was an extremely intelligent woman and had a tongue like a razor. I am betting she played with them a bit before sending them on their way with a 'We're Catholic, so...' but evidently one of them shouted that she was going to Hell. Grandpa evidently was up like a shot, ran out to them and told them they had better leave quickly or they would be leaving feet first.

Everyone has their rock.

Posted by: PabloD

Sure - Epiphany marks the occasion of Catholics' tradition of “chalking the doors.” The formula for the ritual, adapted for 2022, take chalk and write the following above the door of the house: 22 + C + M + B + 22.

The letters have two meanings. They represent the initials of the Magi - Caspar, Malchior, and Balthazar. They also abbreviate the Latin phrase, Christus mansionem benedicat: “May Christ bless the house.” The “+” signs represent the cross, and the “22” at the beginning and the “22” at the end mark the year. Taken together, this inscription is performed as a request for Christ to bless the house.

Whaaaaaaaah. Squeal widdle piggies, squeal. The really hilarious part is the claims of damage to reputation. First off you're cops in 2023 America. Fairly or unfairly your reputation in this country is shit from the get go. Second, you served what seems like a bullshit warrant since you didn't turn up anything. Third, it also sounds like you stole some cash from his house. Seriously, someone should've advised them that they'd look like pathetic little bitches filing this suit, and that they have no right to privacy in the conduct of their official duties. And so, in conclusion, they need to collectively fuck off.

Liberalism has become so nuts, that even liberals like Russel Brand and Elon Musk are questioning things. With Russel Brand, I think it began with the covid authoritarianism. He has laughed at the fact that people have accused him of becoming right wing.

I don't follow Brand all that closely but it's my understanding that he is/was affiliated with the circa 2005-2015 OWS era left. And I gotta give that crowd some credit where it's due, they turned out to be notably more consistent and philosophically grounded than the trendy but casually authoritarian left of the 90s or the totally batshit insane left of the post-gamergate age of woke. Watching them come to terms with the reality that their heroes were just using them has been interesting.

140 >> The Fed’s treating these bonds as $100 worth

Yes. This is to avoid taking a loss on paper. They're valuing the bonds (Ts and others) at par value. To do that, you're pretending that the banks will hold them to maturity at which time Uncle Sam will pay them off (provided Uncle Sam hasn't defaulted).

Only problem is, those bonds are on the asset side covering deposits. Big withdrawals require selling those bonds on the market, where they are worth far less than pan, since the Fed has hiked rates.

This is all to avoid a solvency crisis (which incidentally, can fuck the Fed's own balance sheet!)

149 115 Green Bay man gets 4 years in prison for selling 3D-printed guns, including one that became the first known to successfully evade the TSA

The law is the law, and the feds are quite touchy when someone tries to push the envelope. But he SOLD the gun, which is an absolute no-no. To sell a home made gun, one has to apply for and receive a serial number from the ATF first, then attach it. The guy had to have known better.

So, the Fed is saying it will print all the money needed to cover the deposits.

Also, as was mentioned in the content, the banks are begging for the Treasury and FDIC to guarantee all deposits over $250K. Every thing. On paper, there are about $18T in total "deposits" in the banking system

Uncle Sam (and the Fed) are thus thinking about being on the hook for another $18T. The Fed will have to print that in the end if it came to it. That of course, would be the end of the US dollar.

One thing I mentioned then is that he has a very particular manner of speech. Exact, but also tumbling over itself in a rush. One thing I did not think about is, it is extraordinarily difficult to get people to speak well when they are questioned. Then I realized, Tolkien was classically educated, probably more so than anyone who is reading this. Rhetoric would have been part of his education. Now he is not a great speaker as his pacing is.. awkward(?) but his ability to answer complex questions with such speed... He had a mind on him.

the final play is not to worry about the Dollar being the world's reserve currency. It is to eliminate cash and make all transactions digital and therefore, controllable.

"Sorry, you can't transact the purchase of a gun or ammo, or a fossil fueled car, because your FedGuv is protecting you from yourself."

Think coffee with a smoky dark roast taste. Robust flavor but not bitter. I sometimes blend 1/3 or 1/2 in with my usual ground coffee before brewing.

Which means it will either be direct clearance though agreements between banks in agreed on currencies, or Gold.
Central Bank Digital Currencies will only push back against collapse, not prevent it. The general rule is that the fiat currency to replace the failed fiat currency only collapses in turn because the monetary mis management still exists and is not fixed. The French Republic went to Assignat to Mandat to Gold when Napoleon took the Consolship, and Argentina went from Peso to Austral to Peso pegged to the dollar and Brazil regularly does that too

This will continue until fixed, and it will only be fixed when we are out of options

229 So I'm actually a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or what you guys call a Mormon.

The prohibition is against "hot drinks", which has been interpreted for well over 100 years to mean coffee and tea. It doesn't mean hot chocolate or the like. Tea means actual caffeinated tea; herbal tea such as peppermint or chamomile is fine. Alcohol and tobacco is specifically forbidden, as is abusing drugs.

So thinks like Coke and Pepsi have never been forbidden; per se, but never encouraged either. And hat hasn't changed -- soda is not a good thing, all things considered. But no, we aren't going to be disciplined for having a coke.

If you get addicted to it, though, you might have issues. Which, I think, is (sorry MisHum!) one reason why coffee is on the no-no list. Too addicting. Ideally no one would need chemical stimulants to function.

But we aren't going to go around screaming everyone who drinks coffee is going to hell. For one thing, this is a clear dietary rule, which can and have changed over the years -- pork is fine now, but wasn't in Ye Olde Times. And yes, we are banned from Alcohol, but Christ will come at some point and drink the fruit of the vine with His people, so clearly that restriction will be eased too someday.

Part of it is making members of the church a "peculiar people" and part of it is making sure that people can sacrifice a small thing, so they can grow into sacrificing the bigger things that God demands.

If you cannot give up coffee, how are you going to give up sleeping around, for instance? Baby steps.

250 Many chain grocery stores used to have the Cafe du Monde (orange can, chicory/original one). Seems not so much any more. But that's possibly because the coffee section has exploded in size, variety, and revenue/square inch. Though not clear why CdM coffee would get the axe because of that.

I know get it at the Vietnamese grocery stores, which still stock it despite the fact that they now have 1-3 varieties of imported V'mese coffee, which wasn't the case a while back. Not just Trung Nguyen, the first export brand.

Trung Nguyen was also the first national chain of coffee places in Vietnam. They varied a bit in layout and quality, but generally were very good. "Vietnam's Starbucks". Table service, usually. And the young ladies delivering the coffee were a major memorable part of the, um, "experience".

267 Last time I was at Cafe du Monde they seated me (alone) right next to James Spader, who was sitting there filming a scene for "Storyville". We were so close we chatted between the many takes, while they re-set the extras (people walking by the on the sidewalk, crossing the street, and a carriage rolling by with Jackson Square in the background). Don't know why some of the takes were bad, but a few had an obvious problem: Spader takes a bite from a beignet as the actress walks up to his table to drop a script/something like that on it, make a comment, and walk away. Spader kept sneezing from the powdered sugar.

Finally a waiter (all Vietnamese by this time, mid-90s) said "wait I've got a solution" and he brought back a spray bottle with table water. He sprayed the beignets, appearance didn't change, but no fine dust. Sneezing stopped. But they were *still* filming that brief scene when I left for the airport after 45 minutes. Never saw the movie, don't know if the scene even made the cut.

268 Just noticed that you're talking LDS stuff, which is a field I know something about.

The revelation known as the Word of Wisdom was received in 1833, and prohibits "hot drinks." Joseph Smith and subsequent leaders have consistently interpreted the phrase to mean coffee and tea, and the emphasis has always been on the type of drink, not its temperature. For example, ice tea is out, but hot chocolate is just fine (and delicious).

It has always been taught that way, though there has been variation in the degree to which it has been "enforced" over the years.

Maybe 60 years ago, some leaders recommended against other drinks containing caffeine, in kind of a "spirit of the law" mindset. I was raised that way, and I still avoid colas and other drinks like that. But my cousins of the same age were not. To my knowledge that has never been officially taught or enforced the way the prohibition on coffee and tea has been.

And the comment above about Coke and stocks and timing is sheer nonsense -- but you probably already knew that.

Alvin Bragg is from Harlem, and grew up on Striver's Row. In an interview with The American Prospect, Bragg said that he had been "deeply affected by the criminal justice system – most directly through three gunpoint stops by the NYPD." He graduated from the Trinity School before attending Harvard College. He graduated from Harvard cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in government in 1995, and earned his Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Civil Rights–Civil Liberties Law Review.

There are no records to confirm anything, but it appears he either worked on one design while on mission or got back to Ogden for a visit, or both, based on the timing of one design he sold to them. The "Edison of guns" often came up with his brilliant designs while just noodling over them in his head. Though mostly this happened while half-brother Ed was handy - Ed would turn the idea or vision into a prototype quickly, and the tinkering would go from there.

Is it any different than keeping kosher or not eating meat on Fridays? I think not. The idea is to try to walk the Path. I may look at it as strange, but you would probably look askance at me every pre-Lent trying to come up with something I enjoy, but is not harmful (if it is harmful in some way, you should not be doing it anyway) to give up for Lent.

Posted by: rhomboid at March 22, 2023 11:53 PM (OTzUX)


Have tried both the bourbon and the rye. The bourbon is decent, but too low in proof (86.6) for me. The rye is very good and in my preferred proof level (100) but overpriced. Both use a secondary finishing process - bourbon finished in former port wine casks, Rye in former rum casks. That secondary finish can make or break a spirit. The rye is definitely improved in this case. Overall opinion for me -- I'd likely never buy a bottle myself, but I wouldn't turn down the rye if offered to me. I'd pay maybe $12 for a pour at a bar or restaurant.

He rode in on a motorcyle (wearing some kind of animal-skin fancy biking get-up). Didn't see what he was drinking. We were facing the fire, other end of the room (cool December day) and one in the group said "hey, that sounds a lot like Thorogood" when he started singing "One Scotch, One Whiskey ....".

309 Thanks Doof. I'm mostly an aged rum guy, so bourbon and rye are for "breaks" and changing up things now and then. Port finishes are very well known in the aged rum world, some of the best stuff out there is finished that way. I've had the Woodinville port-finished bourbon, which I liked, and Black Ridge (a Total Wine brand I guess), which was OK but not as good. The bourbon is the Angel's Envy I have, and it's OK for me.

On rye, if you come across Frey Ranch 100-proof (from Fallon, NV, also home of Top Gun since 1999), try it. Very nice. Not sure what their distribution is like, though. You find it in SoCal without too much trouble.

Rush is touring for Moving Pictures, which was massive. By then, Aerosmith had fell apart. Tyler was living in a hotel in NYC near his drug dealer. Perry had started his own band (Joe Perry Project) and were opening for...Rush. Rush killed them with kindness and made sure they were taken care of. The kindness was so bad, Joe Perry apologized to them for being such a dick to them years earlier.

The night is here. Be near to me, dear Jesus. Be a bright candle shining in the dark, driving the sin from my heart. The day will come. Hasten the dawn, dear Jesus. Hasten the time when the sun of righteousness shines into the depths of my heart. The moon casts her gentle rays. Guide me dear Jesus. Guide my steps through this gloomy path, that I may arrive safely in heaven.
The stars glisten in the sky. Teach me, dear Jesus. Teach me to discern truth amidst falsehood that even now I may see signs of your glory.

They are kind of boring. It only takes about a minute to tie them up in knots just by quoting the Book of James.

Mormons are more of a challenge. I have found that when I reveal that I know their "secret" ceremonies and where they came from, that's a bit off-putting to them. I also like asking them about the relationship between Jesus and Satan, and why only men get to rule on Planet Kobol when they die, and why women can't get their own planet.

I also ask them if they would like to learn about how to become a good Catholic so that they will have a chance to go to heaven instead.

That mostly means they won't come knocking any time soon. I'm always polite, but honestly....

356 One old guy I used to w*rk with, told me the JWs in his neighborhood were really a nuisance.

Until!

His wife had bought some new yard and garden decor, put some kind of gargoyle-looking thing by the front door. He said the JWs stopped knocking after that.

Further, said *if he'd only known!* they would've gotten the gargoyle sooner. LOL

A burden taken up willingly by a follower is not a demand or order. Also, I would argue that self denial is not 'unbearable.'

Oh FFS. Jesus DID mention that if you were dishonest in small things you would be dishonest in big things. This not rocket surgery. Self-denial has been a spiritual path since even long before Jesus went 40 days in the desert.

Jordan Peterson says "clean your room." He means, do it regularly to learn how to clean up your act. Same thing.

Covid shutdowns worked ONCE because they burned the general public belief to that point that elites wouldn't do something that drastic without a real need to, and media wouldn't lie that blatantly. All that is gone now.
Posted by: azjaeger

What makes you think they couldn't do it all over again

Because now only their true believers and those who directly benefit take them at their word. To do it again they would have to roll the dice on having enough force to MAKE society comply . Another interesting thing to think about is why the rush to push the unpopular now? Slow boiling the frog has worked very well for them to this point.

372 Read an article about Rush a bit back. Early 70s, they opened for Aerosmith when they had gotten huge. Tyler and Perry treated them like shit. Fast forward a decade. Rush is touring for Moving Pictures, which was massive. By then, Aerosmith had fell apart. Tyler was living in a hotel in NYC near his drug dealer. Perry had started his own band (Joe Perry Project) and were opening for...Rush. Rush killed them with kindness and made sure they were taken care of. The kindness was so bad, Joe Perry apologized to them for being such a dick to them years earlier.

Nice write-up. Raymond Loewy owned the design studio, that was contracted by Studebaker to design the 1953 models. But the design of the '53 coupes and hardtops was almost entirely the sole work of Robert Bourke, one of Loewy's employees. Bourke initially thought he was designing a dream car for the show circuit, and was flabbergasted when Studebaker gave the go ahead to build it for sale. Loewy does indeed deserve credit for selling the design to Studebaker's management.

I attended a Studebaker meet at which Bob Bourke gave a presentation. Very interesting, indeed.

393 Another story about Rush that amused me. Geddy Lee and family went on vacation in the mid-late 70s (not sure of year) to Algeria. While checking in he noticed a really tall guy who looked like Robert Plant. Tall guy was looking right at him. Lee finished checking in and went to the room. About a half hour later, a knock at the door revealed a really tall Englishman who looked like Robert Plant because he was Robert Plant. Pleasantries were exchanged and they talked a bit and that was that. Just 2 rock guys chatting in the hallway of a hotel in North Africa while on vacation with their families.

410 Yep. That's why ai never tried it. What would be the point? LOL.

I should try it, maybe, before pitching it. I probably bought it from Sweet Marias, along with a crapload of green coffee. Shipping has made this almost a wash.

I asked a local coffee shop about selling green beans. "Sure!" they said. No discount though. So much for that idea. I'm down to the last several pounds before the Unpleasantness and monetary Inflation hit. I don't want to look at what coffee costs.

A Mormon prohibition on coffee makes sense from one standpoint. It is an import, and comes from far away. If you've seen what a pound of cofee cost at the Wyoming fur trapper rendezvoux in 1836, you might want to avoid becoming addicted when possible. It is an expense that is, strictly speaking, not necessary. One might argue the point, but some people look at it that way. I always wondered about Welfare payments back in the day. Did they include Coffee? Was that "approved" for WIC or food stamps? Things get contentious when somebody else has to pay for it.

462 Glad to see someone in authority crack down on the abusive licence for jobs. I'm sick to death of this malicious gatekeeping where the morons, the malevolent and status conscious block people. Worse these license requirements create artificial shortages. Where I live, there's such an acute teacher's shortage, they're hiring non licensed people.

463 You have free, unfettered license to video public employees in the course of their duties. It's a Supreme Court decision.

These cops have got not a single leg to stand on.

If they are experiencing shame and derision for what they did, perhaps another line of work is in order.

If you're proud of what you're doing, you should never be afraid of the public being able to see it. If you want to keep it a secret, then you obviously aren't proud of what you're doing, and should rethink your career path.
