Overnight Open Thread (12-20-2012) [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

If SMOD hits tomorrow, I will have been proud to deliver your very last ONT. God Speed, fellow morons and moronettes.

Welcome to Nanny Bloomberg's worst nightmare: A high carb, high fat, nutrient poor ONT. Empty calories? We've got 'em!

Most of us are torn between supporting complete freedom of expression and wanting at times to censor the heck out of others. It seems that RD Brewer's post about 'Saturation Coverage' got some to thinking. Velociman shares his take, in his usual eloquent style.

My point, should I ever meander to it, is that the "free press" are no longer that thing, that entity, exposing the powerful as they exploit they helpless. Rather, they are the critical component in a fascist, corporatist criminal syndicate, allied with but one political entity, and use the power of their supposed neutrality to wage war upon those not of a like political bent.

From Stan Smith, the simplest and cleanest defense against the claims that "guns kill":

In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, today's 'Jackass of the day' award goes to Santa.

From Cracked, the Five Most Famous Musicians who are Thieving Bastards.

Here is where having a few moronettes in the open blogger rotation becomes, well, iffy. You see, between the football threads and the "brought to you by" photos, the moronettes around here often get shorted in the eye candy department, and I think it's high-time that we rectify that situation.

After a bit of digging around I stumbled upon this but it left me with a bit of a tilted head. Hence, two of my personal favorites.

Now, now. Don't get your feelings tied up in knots, fellas. I have a little something for you morons as well.

See? I am a benevolent host.

And now, in closing....
