Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread (9/8/16) [Mis. Hum.]

Ronald Reagan said the following about liberals. "The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

How to be liberal? All that is required are hypocrisy and ignorance.

Ignorance is an absolute must, but especially ignorance of three things: economics, human nature and all of recorded history.

One has to be truly economically illiterate to believe that high taxes encourages productivity, that union-imposed labor regulations don't dis-incentivize hiring, that energy regulations don't raise prices on the poor and working class.



Ronald Reagan also had this profound insight into depths of bureaucratic hell, "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

We are coming up on the anniversary of the 911 Attacks. Are we as a country freer? Or have we just added to the bloat of government? If you answered No. We haven't added to the bloat let's meet 9-year-old Chille Bergstrom of Wyoming, MN. He wanted to fly with his mother from Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport back home. The problem? Well, the young lad has a pacemaker for his heart condition. He was ineligible for walk through metal detector screening. He was informed that he could not be alternatively screened and would need an exemption. Needless to say, Chille and his mother were unable to fly out of Phoenix that day. Way too help out a family.

2,653 firearms found by TSA while passengers are checked. Number one excuse, ooops I forgot. So they can find guns but can't let a 9 year old fly. Yup, I feel safe.

Every five years, the federal Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services revise their Dietary Guidelines for Americans. If science is settled, why do they need to put out revisions? Mankind has been eating longer than monitoring thermometers for global warming.

Eggs are bad. Eggs are good. Salt is bad. Salt is good. Yes, American bureaucrats ruined the American food culture.

More and more, the history of dietary guidelines that our public-health authorities promulgate resembles the Woody Allen comedy Sleeper in which the main character, awakening from a centuries long slumber, learns that every food we once thought bad for us, is actually good, starting with steak and chocolate.


So before you eat your meal what kind of soap do you wash your hands with? The FDA has banned antibacterial soaps. Supposedly there is no scientific evidence that they work better than regular soap. Time will tell.


No wise cracks about ice cream and/or brownies. There is a company making marijuana tampons. Has the FDA checked out these, marijuana tampons? If you're an 'ette who lives in CA or CO you can order them. They seem a little pricey at $44 for a package of 4.

"School teachers, taking them by and large, are probably the most ignorant and stupid class of men in the whole group of mental workers. " - H.L.Mencken


Teachers Educators are part of the elite government bureaucracy. Instead of the 3 R's, they are worried about competition, participation and self-esteem. Here is a test for 8th graders from 1912. What do you think the results would be for 8th graders from 2016?

We are 3 days from the 15th anniversary of the 911 attacks. Does it matter what our kids learn about Islam in public schools?

The death toll from 9/11/2001 continues to grow.


Perhaps U.S.A. student scores would improve if the teaching profession made moar classes funner. Amirite? (Geometry, physics, math to name just a few.)

Speaking of liberals, teachers and the bloated government. 3 University of CO profs don't want global warming skeptics in their class rooms. But, science, it's settled.................


5 climate change myths debunked. Not only are they debunked, they are debunked with humor. Of course liberals can't tolerate humor.


Those that do-do. Those that can't- teach, those that can't teach- do the ONT. Since we are on a teaching kick, here are 8 surprising uses for RUBBING ALCOHOL(Rubbing alcohol you morons :) )


What happens when you have a party attended by over 1,000 teenagers? Amish teenagers? Who made the phone call(s)? 70+ plus arrests and hospitalization for those who had too much Valu-Rite.


Holiday weeks can be rough. Attempting to cram 5 days of work into a 4 day work week is not easy. Are things awful? Questions to ask if you feel like giving up.


And finally. As we attempt not to discuss the Presidential race of 2016 here at The ONT, the following story needs to be told. A certain element of society believes free speech only applies to speech they approve of. A homeowner in Indianapolis was sick and tired of his free speech rights and his private property rights being violated. He took matters into his own hands. Ace has graciously offered a 1 year platinum AoS membership with Troll-B-Gone for this Moron.


Tonight's ONT brought to you by office etiquette.

Be part of the Moron Gang.


Notice The ONT has been known to cause the following: Certain activities while they were not fully awake. These have included sleep-driving, making and eating food, making phone calls, and having sex. Patients often do not remember these events after they happen.
