Tuesday Overnight Open Thread (1/31/17) Things That Make You Say Bad Words Edition

The Left is concerned about the Constitution.

us-govt-org-chart.jpg

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

I realize the current executive administration doesn’t care and the current majority in the legislative branch barely cares, but remembering exactly who our government works for will be helpful over the next few years.


Isn't that special? They know there is a constitution.

They even know how to use it? Bless their hearts.


One last question for Left, Where the hell were you during the Obama years? Hypocrisy and short term memory lapse is no way to go through life.


Have you ever found yourself in Washington D.C. without anything to do? Check out the EPA Headquarters Exhibit. h/t Isophorone Blog @Isophorone

The exhibit is open to the public and free of charge, Mondays through Fridays, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Upon entry to the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, all adult guests are required to present a photo ID and all visitors will pass through security.

Can you pick out the flaws in this exhibit?

The ONT's guess is that these greatest hits of the EPA won't be on display. Just a hunch, that's all we are saying.


If the first few stories didn't make you say bad words, Then you're ready for a big ass bowl of popcorn While the USA burns.

Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“Government scientists are commonly as corrupt as the corporate government that employs them.”
―- Steven Magee


Quote II

“The fall of Empire, gentlemen, is a massive thing, however, and not easily fought. It is dictated by a rising bureaucracy, a receding initiative, a freezing of caste, a damming of curiosity—a hundred other factors. It has been going on, as I have said, for centuries, and it is too majestic and massive a movement to stop.”
Isaac Asimov

Quote III

"The rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted."- James Madison


A SCOTUS nominee. How will the Women's RINO March go?

Now that we have that shit the causes of the bad words out of the way, let us delve into some more ONT material.


Have you lost your keys? After reading this story, there is hope for you to find that missing set.

In 1502, the Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama led a fleet of ships from Lisbon, Portugal in hopes of traveling to India. Unfortunately, two of his ships never returned from the voyage, and everyone thought that they were lost forever.

But that all changed in 2013 when scientists made a discovery so incredible, it would alter history as we knew it. When you see what they found, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time!


Postnatal health care, Japanese style. It doesn't even sound comforting.

The five mothers at a recent session in Tokyo lay on their backs with their knees on their chests bundled up in white cloths. Staff then helped them rock over cushions.

"It felt warm and there was this feeling with my body," said one mother who tried the 20 minute session.

"I have never experienced this before so its quite hard to describe properly."

Of course, bonecrunchers chiropractors aren't enamored by the procedure.


Mother, Mother, Mother. It's about time this crazy shit stops. We don't care if you identify as a man, if you're pregnant you're a woman. And we feel sorry for your kid.

Doctors working for the United Kingdom's government-run National Health Service are being told to stop calling pregnant women "expectant mothers" because it is not "inclusive" to biological women who identify as men.

The trade union representing NHS doctors claims a "large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women," but said a change to remove the word "mother" is necessary because biological women who think they are men can get pregnant.


Call The ONT cynical. What's in it for John F. Kerry?


As we approach Super Bowl LI football dominates the sporting world. But, there is some MLB news. St. Louis Cardinals hit hard by hacking sentence. Funny how MLB can catch hackers but our beloved Federal Gubmint can't.

Several months after the former scouting director for the St. Louis Cardinals was sentenced to 46 months in jail for hacking into the Houston Astros player database, the final punishment from Major League Baseball has been handed down.

Commissioner Rob Manfred proclaimed Monday the Cardinals would have to send the Astros $2 million and their two highest 2017 draft picks to compensate for the hacking.


The ONT's cheap shot of the evening. Lena Dunham's ancestor located. Science & culture with one fell swoop.

The ONT Musical Interlude

1956, Born on this day, John Lydon, (Johnny Rotten,) singer with the Sex Pistols who had the 1977 UK No.2 single 'God Save The Queen'.



American composer, Phillip Glass is born in 1937.


*****

Think about where you live. If your local local law enforcement advised women to dress differently to avoid rape what would you think? Would you be upset? Is a woman to blame? Does she have it coming? Swedish Police tell women to change their behavior.

Recently a clip of Swedish chief of police in Östersund, Stephen Jerand, warning women to adjust their behaviour to protect against a spate of violent attacks, has resurfaced on Facebook and Twitter, now circulating on YouTube with English translation and commentary. The video is real and dates to March 7th 2016, when the Östersund police thought it appropriate, after at least six reports of violence against women in the area since 20 February.


What's wrong with this hipster article besides the over reliance on apps for booze shopping?

Shopping for beer, wine, and liquor can be a pain. First, you have to go all the way to the store (that sucks big time). Then, you have to meander through the aisles, hoping that you choose wisely without any real information about said beer, wine, and liquor. If you’re lucky, you’ll run into a knowledgeable employee who can point you in the right direction. Cut out the middle man by using Drizly. All you need is the app and you can peruse all the booze you want, decide what works for you, and order it. They’ll even deliver it to your door. It’s available all over the U.S., including: Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Boulder, Calgary, Chicago, Columbus, Connecticut, and 32 other cities across the country. Wherever you are, it’s likely Drizly will deliver booze to you.


Good news Gin drinkers. The future of Gin seems secure.


Nanny State International. France bans free refills of soda.
