Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.
-- George Washington


Quote II

Imagine choosing a job not on money or even on career advancement, but as part of a life worth living. Dale Dauten


Quote III

Recession is when a neighbor loses his job. Depression is when you lose yours. Ronald Reagan


2 certain things in life, death and taxes. Make that 3 things, death, taxes and debt in the afterlife. Average Americans dying with debt.

These days, not even the dead are debt-free.

A new report from Credit.com has found that 73 percent of U.S. consumers are dying with large amounts of debt to their name — to the average tune of $61,554.

Everyone (or so it seems) in the educational field say you make more money if you have a college degree. (The ONT will put up a master plumber to any gender studies grad any day of the week. But, we digress.) Are you a sex worker. Sex workers make more with a college degree.

Economists Scott Cunningham and Todd Kendall conducted an extensive survey of female sex workers in 2009. They asked detailed demographic questions as well as gathered details about the women’s clients, work patterns, and pay. They estimate that college-educated sex workers are less likely to work than their less-educated counterparts in any given week. But when they do work, they earn about 12% to 13% more. College educated sex-workers see more clients and book longer sessions. They charge slightly less on an hourly basis, but the volume and nature of their services means they end up earning more.

How to survive a mugging.


The feel good story of the day. The couple from Hell. Trying to make it-again.

After years of public humiliation by her sext-a-holic husband, Anthony Weiner, 40-year-old Abedin finally separated from the former congressman in August, one day after The Post reported that he had sent yet another explicit photo to a woman — this one showing his toddler son asleep beside him.

But sources tell The Post that Hillary Clinton’s righthand woman is now giving the marriage another try.


Is it time to do away with the Indian Reservation? All casino jokes aside, a good question.

The idea of "reservations" may have made sense 150 years ago, but by now we are all Americans, and the idea of separate "reservations" for different kinds of Americans smacks of paternalism and racism.

We should do away with reservations. And if liberals object, I would give the Indians back Manhattan, as a form of reparation.


The ONT Musical Interlude

March 27, 2015, Country singer Willie Nelson announced that he and his family were hard at work on a new brand of marijuana called Willie's Reserve.

Let it burn. The judiciary is as f*cking nuts as the people who appear before them.
The 27-year-old formerly known as Patrick Abbatiello, now legally designated agender, also got legal approval to change names, now going only by “Patch,” no surname. That name also serves as a pronoun, Patch explained to the local NBC affiliate this week.

“Even gender-neutral pronouns don’t feel as if they fit me,” Patch said. “I feel no identity or closeness with any pronouns I’ve come across. What describes me is my name.”


As the old commercial went, "Parts is parts." Form woman to "man".

Having already bought you a first-class ticket to the wonderful land of hairy vagina monsters (and other such delights of vaginoplasty), it seemed downright sexist not to visit neighboring Dongistan. We talked to Gerbil, a trans man who recently underwent phalloplasty, and he told us that turning a hoo-ha into a wang comes with its own unique challenges. For example ...
