The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Health is one of the top drivers to the plant-based meat category, and we feel a deep responsibility to deliver on that expectation for the consumer,”Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown

Quote II

“The Green New Deal is a scam! They’re giving the NYCHA apartments away! They’re giving illegal aliens $10,000 a day! They’re trying to take NYCHA and give it away! I want you to debate me AOC!”
Congressional candidate, Jonathan David Rinaldi declared


Quote III

“I said earlier this week that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I would continue to run for president. I’m a woman of my word. I’m not giving up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden.” Nimarata Nikki Randhawa Haley
Obviously not the majority of South Carolinians.


Quote IV

Feckless policymakers, in league with their rapacious corporate cronies and other greedy elitists, have divined a critical distinction between the defunct Soviet variant of the communist virus and that of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP): unlike the former Soviet Union, western elites can make a buck off the communist China. Thaddeus G. McCotter

Trooper’s cruiser struck for 6th time: ‘Stop hitting me’


An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper was irritated when his cruiser was hit during a traffic stop over the weekend.

That’s because it wasn’t the first time that it has happened. In fact, it was the sixth time!

When Gavin Newsome is done with politics. (Not soon enough for most Americans) He will be perfect in Hollywood. He can recite make believe lines without cracking up.

Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press” that President Joe Biden’s presidency has been a “masterclass” in how to run the United States.

Anchor Kristen Welker said, “There are some pretty stark numbers you are facing. Seventy-six percent of voters say they have real concerns about President Biden’s ability to serve a second term. Do you think it is responsible for Democrats to put him at the top of the ticket given these concerns?”

The Poison Ivy folks don't care for Peter Thiel. Their worthlessness is being exposed.

Peter Thiel’s $100,000 Offer to Skip College Is More Popular Than Ever

Peter Thiel is trying harder than ever to get young people to skip college.

Since 2010, Thiel, an early Facebook investor and a founder of PayPal Holdings, has offered to pay students $100,000 to drop out of school to start companies or nonprofits.

Early on, he met intense criticism. Some accused Thiel, who holds philosophy and law degrees from Stanford, of hypocrisy. Others said it was wrong to discourage young people from finishing their education. Former Harvard University President Lawrence Summers called it the “single most misdirected bit of philanthropy in this decade.”

Evert victory is important.

Judge Declares Fargo's Ban on Home-Based Gun Businesses Goes Too Far

For several years the city of Fargo, North Dakota has prohibited FFL's from operating out of their homes, but the state legislature took aim at that restriction last year and passed a law that bans localities from establishing zoning ordinances that specifically include firearms and ammunition based businesses.

The city almost immediately filed suit challenging the law, but this week state District Judge Cherie Clark ruled against Fargo; tossing out the city's lawsuit and rejecting its argument that the zoning preemption law violates the state constitution and the home rule powers granted to local authorities.

The ONT Musical Interlude & Heating Pad Emporium



Born on this day: February 25, 1943 - George Harrison
George Harrison guitarist and vocalist with The Beatles The all-time bestselling album in the UK is The Beatles’ 'Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band', with over 4.5 million copies sold. Harrison wrote the 1969 US No.1 & UK No.4 Beatles single ’Something’. As a solo artist he had the 1971 US No.1 album 'All Things Must Pass' and the 1970 worldwide No.1 single ‘My Sweet Lord’. He was also a member of the Traveling Wilburys with Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. He organised the 1971 Concert for Bangladesh with Indian musician Ravi Shankar, a precursor to later benefit concerts such as Live Aid. In his role as a music and film producer, Harrison produced acts signed to the Beatles' Apple record label before founding Dark Horse Records in 1974. He co-founded HandMade Films in 1978, initially to produce the Monty Python troupe's comedy film The Life of Brian (1979). Harrison died of cancer on November 29th 2001 age 58. via thisdayinmusic.com

Science has come a long way. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

On the list of illnesses that nobody wants, cancer and HIV both rank pretty high, and Californian man Paul Edmonds had both.

But ever since one particular treatment five years ago, he's been free of both cancer and HIV. The patient is now considered in remission from acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), and in another two years, he could be considered 'cured' of HIV, as that will mark five years from his last treatment.

A member of the US Air Force was in critical condition after reportedly setting himself on fire outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC, Sunday afternoon.

Koch Network Withdraws Financial Support for Nikki Haley

Americans For Prosperity CEO said on Sunday, following the S.C. primary, that the group’s policy arm had decided to ’take stock' of its campaign spending.

The billionaire Koch family’s libertarian policy advocacy group “Americans for Prosperity Action” has said that it is pulling back its financial backing of GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley.

Following the former South Carolina governor’s performance in her home state’s primary on Saturday, in which she trailed former President Donald Trump, the Republican frontrunner, by about 20 percent of the vote, Americans For Prosperity (AFP) CEO Emily Seidel said on Sunday that the group’s policy arm had decided it was time to “take stock” of its campaign spending.
President Trump received 47 of South Carolina’s delegates, while Ms. Haley got three.

2. Zelensky admitted that 31,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed, which is kind of strange, seeing how it is generally known that the real total is over ten times that number.
3. Transnistia, (no sex pervert jokes, please) a Russian-controlled sliver of territory in the far southwest of Ukraine, is talking about formally joining Russia. This would make a NATO attempt to sieze the port city of Odessa a lot more difficult.

No, I was not suggesting that the Deep State would assassinate Trump. Rather that they would engineer a Black Swan event. In the novel reference, which I screwed up, the assassin bought "low field", not "high field" which caused the crowd to hush, because the weather was fine, and the ship was making a very fast crossing. Point being, the assassin planned to engineer a black swan event by killing Bond, and throwing his body overboard, which would cause the ship to reverse course to search for him, and make the assassin's improbable bet pay off, bigly.

I don't think you can show the Vietnamese officer executing the commie on YouTube. Violates their TOS as it shows violence/'murder'. I noticed a lot of historical war films that I had seen before are now censored on YouTube so as not to show the dead, even the executions of the concentration/death camp personnel. Just recently, those on YouTube covering the Danny Masterson/Scientology rape trial couldn't say the word 'rape' as it was deemed 'violent'. No wonder we have so many special snowflakes today: They don't get taught real history and now they'll get fake AI historical images.

do you know those hand wringing worries from official sources that ask "what will happen to the least skilled in society" when automation takes over?
The unseen part of that is that inflation destroys the customer experience side of retail and service sectors, since inflation makes those positions non-tenable.

In a deflationary economy, there would be gas jockeys and box boys and public toilets would be cleaner. Inflation steals jobs as well as wages and savings.

The year was 1968, and Sanders tries to equate the invasion of Czechoslavakia by the Soviets with … something. Kerouac shreds him, even half lit with one hand tied behind his back. Fascinating glimpse into a time when it all went sideways.

Holy cow, I have not heard Iron Maiden in a long time. Pooky was confused when I said we should play the band's songs when we encountered an iron maiden in Pathfinder. I told his father that Pooky's education was severely lacking the next time I saw him, and he immediately threw Pooky's straight-laced mom under the bus.

333 Disqus, or any "threaded" commenting, is ob de debbil hissef.

All it does is chop up a flowing, readable and comprehensible comment thread, such as this, into countless, SEPARATED "conversations", each deriving from ONE "initial" comment, and then all of it's responses, in kind.

With none of the interwoven insight, humor, additive wisdoms and building of community, as is shown as in tonight's ONT, alone.

When the flow goes from the political, to commiserating with COMM over an impending loss, and Jim in KA of as to his recent loss, and then humor and Wall of Shame maintenance, all while holding together as a unified conversation.

Disqus has nothing to offer, and nothing to compare.

Never change, Ace. Never change, Pixy. Minx Alpha 7.x is where it's at!
