Tonight's ONT Is Full Of Mystery

Yo Dawg, I heard you like guns, so I put a gun on your gun so you can gun while you gun.

This is pretty clever.



This is Insane

This is a LONG read (3 articles, the successive ones are linked at the bottom of each previous one). It's also an example of excellent investigative reporting that's become all too rare. The backstory: 2 years ago, a reporter was contacted by a lady who worked at a circus. She said she had a story to tell about how James Brown and his third wife were both murdered. He goes to see her and she tells a long, rambling and disjointed story, a real Southern Gothic tale, about being raped by Brown, his wife being murdered, crooked accountants, shady lawyers, murder for hire, drugs, sex, organized crime...really, the story has it all. She presents a plastic bin full of stuff to back up her claim. I'm sure reporters get these kind of stories all the time, from crackpots of all shapes and sizes, but as this reporter digs deeper, to his amazement he finds that the stuff she presented as evidence seems to be backing up her claims. So he digs a little more....

Does he come up with smoking gun proof that Brown was murdered? No, he doesn't. But he does seem to verify enough to prove that at the very least, there was some crazy shit going on around James Brown. If it was a Mythbusters episode, they'd deem the story “plausible”. It's worth the time to read, if only for the sheer insanity of it all.

THE CIRCUS SINGER AND THE GODFATHER OF SOUL


Living on the Fringe

American anarchist 'John Galton' shot dead in Acapulco

So he runs from America because (drugs) he wants to live unencumbered by "The Man", he settles in a Mexican town that if famed for it's (drugs) lawlessness. There he pursues his interests (drugs), free from interference from authorities, until he is shot dead by (drug cartel) unknown assailants. How could such a thing happen?

What do these idiots think “anarchy” means, anyway?

Man Is Suing His Parents For Giving Birth To Him Without Consent

His parents should sign on as co-plaintiffs. And how exactly is one supposed to get “consent” from a being who doesn't exist yet?


Chesterton's Fence

The biggest problem America is suffering from is the fact that the hippie generation is now in charge, and has been for a while. While not unknown in any generation, that particular generation has (in general) a marked belief that anything “old” is “bad” and thus must be changed. Now, some old things are bad and do need to be changed, but just because something is “old”, doesn't mean that it is “bad”. Some old things are the distilled wisdom of uncounted generations of human experience. Like disciplining children, for example. I'd be willing to be that the two fine gentlemen above had very little discipline from their parents, for example (also possible but a little less likely is that they were rebelling against too much discipline). Here's a terrible example of how that attitude transformed a model school into a hellhole:

Investigation: In NYC School Where a Teenager Was Killed, Students & Educators Say Lax Discipline Led to Bullying, Chaos, and Death

See also the shooting in Broward County last year. That asshole was only able to buy his guns legally because the school system made a concentrated effort to NOT report or prosecute him for the stuff he did do prior to the shooting. He SHOULD have had a record that would have prevented the purchase, but since Broward Country decided to “solve” their problems with bad behavior by not reporting them, he wasn't. The result was 17 dead. How on earth could anyone guess that kids who are not given boundaries and discipline would misbehave?

Surprise!

Panera's Socialist Pay-What-You-Want Restaurant Implodes: Students, Homeless Mob The Place

I don't understand. Everyone was only taking according to their needs, right? And surely a big corporation like Panera has the means to provide it. I have no idea why the scheme failed.

Family asks for cards to make WWII veteran's birthday special

Shouldn't be too hard to drop this man a quick line, should it? He's an army combat engineer who served in the Pacific on Guam, The Philippines and Saipan. The address is in the story. Let's do this!

Like the commie sandwich shop in Grand Rapids where people didn't have schedules or bosses or anything like that, it just ran on belief in communism. The punch line is that it takes 40 minutes of standing in line to get a true socialist sandwich, but if you get the joke, you don't start a communist restaurant in the first place.

97 The biggest problem America is suffering from is the fact that the
hippie generation is now in charge, and has been for a while. While not
unknown in any generation, that particular generation has (in general) a
marked belief that anything "old" is "bad" and thus must be changed.


I always hear this about why everything went to Hell in a hand-basket.

Except the hippies didn't create the Great Society. Or the New Deal. Or the New Freedom agenda.

All that shit is "old" now, too. And I don't think any of it is all that good, either.

In a 5-4 ruling issued late Thursday, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the courts liberal wing to stay the law that requires physicians to hold active admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where abortion care is provided while a case against it plays out in court.

It was really delightful..
He was invited by the British Imperial War Museum Archives to do something interesting and novel with movie footage they have from WW I.
Amazing what he did with it.. he took crappy old grainy footage and standardize it to 24 frames per second.. then colorized a good portion of it... And he used vocal history accounts by WW I vets that were recorded in the 60's and 70's as narration.

It only covered the Western Front of UK soldiers.. but it was stunning..

Completely consistent for Roberts. I'll say this one more time and then shut up.

Roberts doesn't give two shits about the "Law" - but he cares quite a bit about the reputation of the Supreme Court.

You can trace every fucked up ruling by Roberts back to one thing ... will the Court be obeyed ? Because in the case of ObamaCare - Roberts knew that Obama was going to push that shit forward anyway. So Roberts made a ruling to save face for the Court.

Same thing here. Roberts is calculating that the Left will riot over this shit (they will), while the Right will as they're told (they will). So he's putting the Law down on those that will listen. If he thought Louisiana would tell the Supreme Court to go fuck itself - he would have sided with the Conservatives instead.

That's all there is to it.

He amputated in addition the fingers of his young assistant (who died afterwards in the ward from hospital gangrene). He also slashed through the coat tails of a distinguished surgical spectator, who was so terrified that the knife had pierced his vitals he dropped dead from fright. That was the only operation in history with a 300 percent mortality.

There was really no pain relief for anyone, so people didn't even know that anything else could be done. They put up with quite a lot. They were just much stronger than modern man.

Any general dental work back then would send most pansies today into serious conniptions and would be considered the worst sort of inhumane, unbearable torture possible ... but back then pretty much everyone just went through it when they had to. Because that's how life was.

And one can imagine some uses/circumstances where it might make sense. Spacecraft, for example, where space is at a premium. Recall the russkis had some sort of frankenstein multi-gun they sent up with their cosmonauts (helps with the wolves in your remote landing zone).

343 > union auto worker out of a job

Some of those guys are still collecting government moola from the 70s and 80s, on that "temporary program" that was supposed to support them until they "retrained" for a "new job".

Fuckers show up at "work" every morning, clock in, then play cards for eight hours, at union autoworker wages, then clock out and go home.

But sure, they're going to go into new lines of work in ten years.

> Nancy basically said, none of this is going to happen, but first you must blow me. AOC was just to dumb to understand that. Nancy really like private air travel.

Yup. It's the exact same scenario as when a toddler brings an adult a "cookie" the toddler has made from mud and twigs. The adult says "Oh, looks yummy! I'll save it until after dinner.", the toddler goes away beaming, and the adult throws the thing in the trash as soon as the kid is out of sight.

New Jersey's legislators cleared the latest hurdle in a bid to legalize assisted suicide, reports say.

NJ.com reported Thursday that the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted 6-3 in favor of the Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act, which would allow adult residents to obtain a prescription for life-ending drugs if a doctor has determined they have six months or less to live.

--Hmmm

Beware, then, of whispering, and to ill purpose; ever let your tongues refrain from calumny. Think not that the secret word goes for nought; lying lips were ever the soul's destroying. Death for its goal, is not life's aim missed? Labours he well, that labours to bring doom about his ears? Death was never of God's fashioning; not for his pleasure does life cease to be; what meant his creation, but that all created things should have being? No breed has he created on earth but for its thriving; none carries in itself the seeds of its own destruction. Think not that mortality bears sway on earth; no end nor term is fixed to a life well lived . . . It is the wicked that have brought death on themselves, by word and deed of their own; court death, and melt away in its embrace, keep tryst with it, and lay claim to its partnership.

370 A joke I heard from a friend of mine:

A drummer walks into a music store, because he wants to broaden his musical horizons. He wants to grow as a musician.

So he goes up to the salesperson working there and says, "You know, I'm looking for a new instrument to learn, so... how about I buy that red trumpet over there, and... I guess that big old accordion too, what the hell, right?"

And the salesperson, perplexed, replies:

"Well, I suppose you can have the fire extinguisher if you really want, but the radiator has to stay."

Back when i was a stay at home mom i listened to charlie sykes. Wow did he go off the rails. Real eye opener to his true agenda

Posted by: My life is insanity at February 08, 2019 04:48 AM (7Lklb)

417 I have listened to, not exclusively, to talk radio since my early twenties. There are lots of conservatives worth listening to.

Posted by: Skip at February 08, 2019 04:51 AM (/rm4P)

418 I wasnt tuned in to politics much til i hit my late 20s, and yes listened to what was out there. Sykes was the one of several here locally. It was weird, when i started noticing he was not the conservative i thought he was i still listened to his show because it was at a convenient time for me. But then he really went crazy during trump's campaign and it was making my blood pressure go up way too much! We have mark belling here, (i think he sometimes subs on Rush's show) he's sometimes a bit abrasive, but good at what he does and is right in what he believes and says.

The wind is literally howling right now and the current temp is 6. It would be a great day to curl up with a book and a latte and a cat in my lap, but I think I may have screwed up some paperwork so I have to go in and really go back over everything I did. I hate when something strange happens and I think I may have made a mistake, but I'm not sure exactly where in the pipeline it occurred. If I did screw-up it's fixable, but not without some back and forth hassle I don't have time for right now. Sigh.

Roberts is calculating that the Left will riot over this shit (they will), while the Right will as they're told (they will). So he's putting the Law down on those that will listen. If he thought Louisiana would tell the Supreme Court to go fuck itself - he would have sided with the Conservatives instead.

That's highly plausible. But I still have one hope about him. I don't recall him twisting the Constitution. Statutory interpretation is another matter, as in the "tax" pretzel.

It does also make one point. We shouldn't be rushing important cases to SCOTUS just yet. We need another justice. (I also suspect that, if he knows we're winning without him, Roberts is more likely to join in.)

In almost all cases such as that when the people who were robbed by the cops take it to court the judges has ate the cop's lunches on that shit and ordered them to return the money.

No they can't "throttle it" but they can cut it off entirely by remote control unless you are in a small utility with old equipment. In that case they cut off whole towns and subdivisions.

They do that during periods when load is reaching a critical point where all available supply is in service and loads are about to exceed that supply. As far as I know they have not cut off individual homes yet, even if they can do it.

They can't do individual houses by the meter unless they have the meter plugged into something like a 200A breaker. but what most do is control it at the transformer feeding multiple houses. So they will kill a small block of houses in a neighborhood. But, as I said, I have not seen them do that here. They kill major parts of the grid on a rotating basis.

Posted by: Vic at February 08, 2019 07:17 AM (mpXpK)

564 Closest thing to actual control of your individual electrical consumption that I have seen is the installation of a 'smart' thermostat, which allows the power company to control either your thermostats set point, or cycle the thermostat internally to 'Off' and 'on' to reduce peak grid consumption.

We have both a smart meter, and a smart gas meter.

Nowhere internally is a device that can be remotely operated to interrupt power flow.

That is why it is nice to be on the same sector of the grid as the local retirement community - they won't shut off power to people medically dependent on electrical equipment.

TX has allowed utilities to deviate from the standard 60Hz during peak usage. Some of the many problems is that high grade UPS see this as a problem and consume more energy to restore the 60Hz; also MANY motors (think A/C compressors) are tuned for 60Hz and work less efficiently using more power and may start cooking bearings with the extra heat when the outside temperatures are already over 100F.

They can not kill individual circuits in your home power panel unless you have signed up for a special program that allows them to kill individual ccomponents like A/C and Hotwater Heaters. And from what I understand they do that at the load and not at the breaker panel.

574 567 TX has allowed utilities to deviate from the
standard 60Hz during peak usage. Some of the many problems is that
high grade UPS see this as a problem and consume more energy to restore
the 60Hz; also MANY motors (think A/C compressors) are tuned for 60Hz
and work less efficiently using more power and may start cooking
bearings with the extra heat when the outside temperatures are already
over 100F.

577 but they have been a convenient whipping boy for the politicians and piggy bank for the plaintiff's bar.

I have never understood the wisdom in suing the medical community and utilities - two of the most profoundly highly regulated industries on earth, and also the two that are the most costly to the most people.

Seriously? Suing your doctor out of business when he has been turning away new patients for years because of the backlog? Suing the sole source of electricity/water/gas?

And in the meantime, the most reckless, corrupt and often deliberately malicious group of feckless criminals who life would be greatly improved with less intervention from, yet insert them selves in your life at every point, because they have guns, can't be sued at any time.

590 If Sandy Ocasio thinks that "latinos" are native Americans, does that mean she believes the Indian tribes spoke Spanish? Or maybe she thinks they spoke Latin?

And haven't scientists found that the earliest "native" American people actually came here from Siberia? (Pretty sure I read that in Time magazine, so it must be true). Are Siberians considered "latinos" now? And under Sandy's theory, does that mean we have to give all Russians immunity from our immigration laws too?
