Overnight Open Thread (10-10-2014) - [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

CDR M has taken leave and between his muffled cries to be released from his bindings has pleaded that I take mercy and, in his words, "Don't leave those poor, burdened souls hanging! You know they'll wander aimlessly through the streets without an ONT to keep them occupied!" He then said something else but it was indecipherable through his shrieking. Always with the damn shrieking! I hear you, Joe. The bindings are too tight. You haven't eaten in days. "Can I please have something to drink?!" Yada, yada, yada....

Always with the whining.

You think this is easy for me? Do you know the pains I must take to keep the neighbors from taking notice? Huh?!

Uh.

I can't help but feel that, perhaps, I have wandered off topic just a bit.

What I meant to say is that CDR M is at the movies and asked that I cover for him.

Remember. HE did this to you!


Why Newlywed Brittany Maynard Is Ending Her Life in Three Weeks

If everything goes as planned in her life, 29-year-old Brittany Maynard's death will occur on Saturday Nov. 1 - in her bed, on an upper floor of her Portland, Oregon home, with cherished music filling the room.

Lately, though, nothing in Maynard's life has flowed like she once dreamed - no children with her newlywed husband, no more time. She has brain cancer, grade 4 glioblastoma. In April, a doctor told her she had six months to live.

Now, Maynard has embarked on a rare farewell bathed in politics and poignancy - all painstakingly organized and openly shared, she said, in a bid to help to change laws for dying Americans who feel they are forced to endure the full, gruesome descent of a terminal illness.

I am very, very torn on this story and can't imagine a more personal matter in one's life. Myself, I'm guessing I would fight until there was no fight left in me but, then again, I'm not presently facing a terminal diagnosis.

Who knows what we might actually do.


Have you ever purchased a Red Bull? Then you might have some money coming to you.

I despise class-action attorneys.


What. The. Hell?



OMG! Burn them!

Wal-Mart to End Health Insurance for Some Part-Time Employees:

Wal-Mart Stores is cutting health insurance for another 30,000 part-time workers and raising premiums for its other employees, as U.S. corporations push to contain costs in the wake of the federal health-care law.

Autumn is typically when U.S. companies unveil changes to employee insurance plans. This is the first such enrollment period since employers could assess the full financial impact of the federal health-care overhaul, and it is a key moment as companies work to lower their spending ahead of looming taxes on the most generous plans.

Don't worry. They'll still be covered. That's what emergency rooms are for.


3 found guilty in murder of 14-year-old over sneakers collection

14 years old. Over Air Jordans.

Their defense: The bitch set me up.


Those who follow me on Twitter are by now familiar with my rants at Fox News. They have been resting on their laurels for too long and have allowed some big gets to make a home at CNN.

I can't imagine I'm the only one who thinks Hasselbeck is a poor fit for the morning show. She would probably fit in quite well at the noon cluckfest, "Outnumbered" but she seems out of place beside Doocy and Kilmeade. In the meantime, the anchor who I think most viewers would have expected to fill Carlson's shoes, Alisyn Camerota, rode out the changes, landing at a 1 pm slot before heading out and, eventually, landing at CNN.

And, John Walsh? Remember 'America's Most Wanted'? Of course you do! It was a top show for, what, a decade or more? Yep. He's at CNN now. Yet, this doesn't even begin to rile me like this next little "get".

Mike Rowe: He of idol status among the horde, has landed a show at CNN. Yes. At CNN. I can't freaking believe it.

No problem FNC. You keep on feeding us reruns all weekend and, by all that is holy, what the hell is it with Carol Alt?

CNN is hungry and FNC is sitting back like a fat cat. This could get interesting.


The final word on why our stadium kicks your stadium's ass.


Don't even get me started on the league's best mascot....
