The ONT Word of The Week

Schadenboner: Definition

Taking really, REALLY immense delight in the misfortune of some loathesome person-like creature. Well beyond garden-variety schadenfreude, a case of schadenboner lasting beyond four hours means the tumescent owner must seek medical attention.

The final exposure of Dan Rather as a failshit partisan back in 2004 gave me a 3-hour schadenboner..at least.

Schadenboner: Illustrated


Yes, the ONT is still a little giddy over Tuesday's results.

Speaking of schadenboner, does the Horde ever get tired of these?

Essay question for 25 points. Why are elections held on Tuesday?

Joe Cocker singing about his deplorable friends?

During Wednesday's excitement an important anniversary had been overlooked.Where were you 27 years ago? Although he wasn't the president at the time.The world owes Ronald Reagan a debt of gratitude.

Millennials. They are a unique generation. Their sensitivity is G.D. nuts. Their work habits have been called into question. Many seem to be afraid of commitment. Numerous stories have been written about them.Not all of them live in their parents basement. The story of one young man and how he walked away from the typical 9-5 job. No safe spaces for him.

When you're connected to your work or to the company, there's a possibility it will improve your life overall. But I was unhappy. Not even $90,000 a year at age 31 could buy my happiness. But it did buy me something — the ability to say goodbye.

For my final working year, I lived as cheaply as possible to save up money to buy a van, renovate it, and put enough money away for one year of expenses at my current standard of living.

And then I quit my job.

Now that you have met Dave Sandel. It's time to meet his counterparts at the University of Minnesota.

Lutherans are known for their crazy jello salads. The ONT has no idea what religious practices these folks have.

Today is the birthday of a special group of folks. Happy Birthday Marine Corps

Tomorrow November 11th is a special day. It is Veteran's Day. Thank you Vets for all you have done.

The late Peter Tosh singing about American referendums.

There is big money to be made in the simplest of things. Look at cable television for example. No government on earth had ever created a for-profit marijuana market – until voters decided to do so in the United States.Shocker!!!! Surprise!!!!

Dan Riffle, once one of the nation’s most influential lobbyists for legalization, now opposes what he sees as a commercial takeover of the movement – the creation of an industry dependent on heavy users and kids.

“Legalization is happening, you know, for the first and only time,” he said. “And it seems like instead we’re just going to do alcohol again. We’re just going to do tobacco again. We’re just going to create this big, commercial model.”

Mark Kleiman, a professor of public policy at New York University and a decades-long supporter of softer marijuana laws, shares Riffle’s concerns. “We’re lurching from prohibition to the most wide-open kind of legalization,” he said. “Probably a bad idea.”

Well just what the hell did you think would happen if marijuana was legalized? You thought kids and heavy users were going to stay away? Capitalism, entrepreneurship and free markets still exist in the good old U.S.A. for a while. The maker of legal product out there from milk to the "green car" does so to make a buck.

So once legalization has occurred. What happens to those who have been convicted? Individuals with simple possession charges/convictions could probably be released. But what about the 20 something criminal whose record is long as your arm with multiple felonies including gun charges? Do we unleash unintended consequences upon the innocent?

Meet Seattle business owner Steven Aragon. The ONT doesn't know how much blood, sweat and tears he has put into his Seattle business. But we would expect a lot. The City of Seattle has gone after gun dealers via tax code. Of course revenues are down and employees have lost their jobs. But what the hell. The liberals feel good.

Mike Coombs, owner of Sodo's Outdoor Emporium, says he has laid off three employees and taken a $2 million hit in sales so far in 2016.

His customer count, he says, is also down by 32 percent.

Meanwhile, Coombs says his other store -- Sportco in Fife -- has seen a 10 percent to 12 percent increase in sales.

He blames the Seattle gun violence tax, passed last year and implemented Jan. 1. The ordinance charges a $25 tax for every firearm sold in the city and 5 cents for every round of ammunition of .22 caliber or greater. Given that ammunition comes bundled in boxes, those nickels can add up.

That leads Coombs and other gun tax opponents to wonder: How much money has Seattle collected from this tax? It's the subject of a lawsuit filed by reporter Dave Workman and the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation in September.

In the spring, Workman sought the city's tax revenue from the gun violence tax, but the city government declined to divulge the information, claiming that such records could compromise the identities of the people who have paid the tax.

If liberals are so Goddamned smart why haven't they figured out that targeted taxes such as this do more harm than good? It isn't about outcomes it's about intentions. If it were about the outcome the City of Seattle would be shouting from the rooftops how much the tax revenue was.

The left talks about "sensible" gun control. Does this sound sensible to you? Felons in possession of a fire arm committing a felony doesn't sound sensible to average person.

From the SMFH files. Chicago looks like the old west with its shootings and murders. What better way to stop the Wild West look than banning a western playset. Geez, why didn't they think of that before?

Wrapping up Tuesday's election news. Liberal strong holds increased their tax burden "for the kids."The cost of your Dr. Pepper just went up.Thank God these idiots weren't present at the time of our country's founding.

You think .22LR ammo is expensive and hard to find? Try stocking up on this ammo. $800K per round.

How many of these look familiar? You have the right to remain silent.

NSFW Movie scene comes to life on a plane. Hint, it doesn't involve spiders.

Not happy with Tuesday's presidential election results? Had enough of the U.S.A? Want to leave? Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. There may be a job just right for you in Canada.

However, if you are moving to Canada, be careful of what you say about Islam.

While a motion will have no legal effect unless it is passed as a bill, the symbolic effect of the Canadian parliament unanimously condemning "all forms of Islamophobia," without making the slightest attempt at defining what is meant by "Islamophobia," can only be described, at best, as alarming.

What exactly are they condemning? Criticism of Islam? Criticism of Muslims? Debating Mohammed? Depicting Mohammed? Discussing whether ISIS is a true manifestation of Islam? Is any Canadian who now writes critically of Islam or disagrees with the petitioners that ISIS "does not reflect in any way the values or the teachings of the religion of Islam" now to be considered an "Islamophobe"?

When you see certain people, especially the moon bats from Hollywood, feel free to express yourself.

Not moved by tonight's musical content? Failure to communicate in the brain may be behind indifference to music.

Hungry? Want something different? The ONT still recommends a medium rare cheeseburger every time. Boring? Perhaps. Lethal? Well, maybe over an extended period of time. Unlike these 17 foods.

There is a new Yiddish-English dictionary. This will certainly help here when the occasional Yiddish word or phrase is thrown out by the commenters.

My parents were probably felons. What about your parents?

Do you receive packages via UPS, FedEx, USPS? Do you have problems with theft of those packages? This might help you out.

Facing a criminal charge is bad enough. Shooting yourself in the leg TWICE. That's a Genius Award winner if there ever was one, Part I.

Genius award winner, Part II
