Overnight Open Thread (9 Nov 2013)

Barack Obama has been Gaslighting the American people. No shit.

Think of it this way: We’re all living out the movie Gaslight, with Obama as the dangerously manipulative, dishonest Charles Boyer character, and the American public as the hapless, helpless Ingrid Bergman character, whom Boyer is trying to drive mad so that he can take her wealth. (Which raises the question whether Ted Cruz is the Joseph Cotten character who rides to the rescue….)

Even thought I’m right about something depressing, I’m human enough to take some pleasure in having been right in the first place. So, forgive me for analyzing Obama’s latest lies, and his lie about those lies, using a post I wrote five-and-a-half years ago, when I first realized he was using the narcissist’s classic approach to lying and manipulation.

Nerf Guns

Good God. These idiots actually believe people can't tell the difference between a Nerf gun and an actual gun. Um, bright yellow and orange colors is your first clue it is a Nerf gun (unless you painted over it which isn't recommended). But then again, being a university campus, these are well known hotbeds of LIVs so one can understand how they won't be able to tell.

I'm gonna have to make this though. The DIY Nerf Vulcan Sentry Gun. Man this would be awesome for office war games.

Lone Survivor Trailer

This trailer is much better than the first one for this movie.

Cell Phone Fees

Obamacare wasn't the first program that requires people to pay for other people to get free things. Just look at your cell phone bill. Yup, you're paying for OPhones.

One carrier executive, Gary Carter, manager of national partnerships for Assurance Wireless, apparently already considers free phones a civil right, or something close to it. A blogger for the New York Post quoted him as saying, “The program is about peace of mind. It’s one less bill that someone has to pay, so they can pay their rent or for day care. … It is a right to have peace of mind.”

Since each income–based entitlement can serve as a gateway to other related programs—getting on the burgeoning food stamp program triggers qualification for a free phone—each new benefit can be seen as “earned” by participation in a previous one. The deeper problem, Weissberg says, is that behind the benevolence, today’s federal help profoundly differs from the past interventions, breeding ingrained dependency and infantilizing the people it wants to help.

Awesome Arrest Video

Meet chess master Paul Charles Dozsa. Evidently he is known for not paying his restaurant bills. He should be thankful he wasn't arrested in New Mexico.

Glow In The Dark Food

Glow in the dark ice cream. OK, what food would you make glow in the dark. I'm thinking bacon.
