Overnight Open Thread (17 Sep 2016)

Les Déplorables: Hillary Clinton names the five phobias of Donald Trump's political supporters.

...the overwhelming majority of these people aren't phobic about a modernizing America. They're fed up with the relentless, moral superciliousness of Hillary, the Obamas, progressive pundits and 19-year-old campus activists.


No-First-Use

Sigh. No it does not reflect strength. Refusing to nuke first: Why rejecting nuclear preemption reflects strength, not weakness.

Video Games

I know I play more video games than watch TV. Outside of a few shows, I largely avoid the TV. Labor force participation and video games. I'll be playing this next week!

NFL Week 2 Picks

I know, I know, the NFL is still on my shit list but here are your NFL week 2 picks only with Kate Upton!

Speaking of the NFL, what dumbass decided to add a convicted rapist to the Hall of Fame nomination process?

Swearing

Obviously, this video has a lot of swear words (NSFW) so check your speaker volume.

The Earth and the Moon

A cosmic crash may have made the moon.

Maetenloch

Contrary to internet rumors, Maetenloch lives.

Millennials and Socialism

Libertarian economics professor: Ten things millennials should know about socialism.

Democratic socialism is a myth. As DiLorenzo says, "socialism is socialism. It doesn't matter if it was imposed by a dictatorship or democracy, it is still a government plan imposed on society." He notes that countries like Venezuela who classify themselves as socialist democracies have faced nearly all of the same problems as traditional socialist countries. Venezuela, once the wealthiest country in Latin America, is now experiencing hyper-inflation and food shortages.

Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest opens to heightened security. Bookings are down 10 to 15 percent due to concerns over a terror attack and probably sexual assault by "migrants". Like this story. Three Algerian men charged in gang-rape near Eiffel Tower.

Meanwhile, back here in the States, hero cop released from hospital after cleaver attack.

disturbing details emerged painting the alleged attacker as an unhinged, knife-loving homeless man with 15 prior arrests, and whom the United States was trying to deport. Akram Joudeh, 32, is a Palestinian with a Jordanian passport who lived in his Nissan Altima and has at least three arrests involving knives, sources told The Post.

I'm sure they were trying really hard to deport this guy.

Emergency Landing

Heh. Out of fuel: pilot landed an Harrier on a container ship - the ship claimed the plane under salvage rights.

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go really, really distracts drivers. And pedestrians as they walk into busy streets.

Cheeseburger Day

Heads up. Tomorrow is National Cheesburger Day and there are some special deals out there if you want to take advantage of them.

Note7 Lawsuit

I'm no lawyer but I don't think he's gonna win unless Samsung decides to settle. He's a dumbass for continuing to use the phone a week after the voluntary recall had been initiated (we all got notices of the initial voluntary recall). Samsung sued after Galaxy Note7 'explodes' in pocket.

Cat Video

Tonight's ONT brought to you by reaction of lions to a man in a motorized cage:
