Overnight Open Thread (26 Sep 2015)

Ruminations on the 2016 election.

there's no Reagan on the horizon and the current ruling elite is not going to be swayed by appeals to God and country.

The current crop is a different sort of ruling class. Their only allegiances are to their class and the global financial elite that supports them.

The GOPe

No, they still don't get it. Furious Boehner allies lash out.


Was it a mistake to kill the F-22 program? Short answer? Yes.

Killing A Spider

If you're gonna kill a spider, don't do it like this numbnut. Michigan motorist sets car, gas pump on fire trying to kill a spider with a cigarette lighter.

Tonight's ONT brought to you by the biggest guns in history:
