Overnight Open Thread (6-25-2015)

Quote of the Day

You have to credit the Left: Its strategy is deft. If you can make enough noise that sounds approximately like a moral crisis, then you can in effect create a moral crisis. Never mind that the underlying argument - "Something bad has happened to somebody else, and so you must give us something we want!" - is entirely specious; it is effective.

-- Kevin D. Williamson in We Have Officially Reached Peak Leftism

NY Post Film Critic: It's About Time We Retired "Gone With the Wind" Too, Don't You Think?

Yes everything related to the Confederacy and the South in general must be shoved down the memory hole now. Soon Gone With The Wind will join Disney's Song of the South as Officially Permanently Unavailable, only viewable via low quality bootleg copies floating around in the underbelly of the internet. So save your GWTW DVDs cause they're gonna be gold on the black market in a few years.

Play the Fun New Game: Unabomber or Pope Francis?

"The idea of promoting a different cultural paradigm and employing technology as a mere instrument is nowadays inconceivable. The technological paradigm has become so dominant that it would be difficult to do without its resources and even more difficult to utilize them without being dominated by their internal logic. It has become countercultural to choose a lifestyle whose goals are even partly independent of technology, of its costs and its power to globalize and make us all the same."

A. Unabomber  B. Pope Francis

"The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth. In many parts of the planet, the elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are now covered with rubbish. Industrial waste and chemical products utilised in cities and agricultural areas can lead to bioaccumulation in the organisms of the local population, even when levels of toxins in those places are low."

A. Unabomber  B. Pope Francis

Marines May Deploy on Foreign Ships, Because U.S. Navy Doesn't Have Enough

Funny enough Mitt Romney brought up this very point in a 2012 debate and Obama responded with his typical arrogant style of snark:

You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we're counting ships.

Advantage: Romney

Disadvantage: The Marine Corps today

Bristol Palin Having Another Bastard Child

Sigh. So she's now about to be the mother of two children with zero marriages to go along with them. Not a very good record for someone only 24 years old. I'm guessing this is going to put a damper on her preventing teen pregnancy and abstinence speaking career. No word on who the father is but former fiancée Dakota Meyer is the likely suspect.

Couple Flees $1.3M Dream House Over Creepy Letters Signed, 'The Watcher'

And they're creepy indeed. But I'm not sure their lawsuit against the real estate agent and previous owners who didn't mention getting a letter during closing will be successful.

"Why are you here? I will find out," read part of the first of "The Watcher's" letters. "My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time."

"Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested?" reads another part of the first letter. "Once I know their names I will call to them and draw them to me. I asked the [prior owners] to bring me young blood."

..."All the windows and door in [the house] allow me to watch you and track you as you move through the house," it continued. "I am in charge."
