Open borders, a Utopian concept that is backfiring in Europe.Germany's crime rate involving 'migrants' is alarming.

Although non-Germans make up approximately 10% of the overall German population, they accounted for 30.5% of all crime suspects in the country in 2016.

Nearly 250,000 migrants entered the country illegally in 2016, up 61.4% from 154,188 in 2015. More than 225,000 migrants were found living in the country illegally (Unerlaubter Aufenthalt) in 2016.

The Berlin Senate launched an inquiry into why migrants disproportionally appear as criminals in the city-state compared to Germans.


Geez, 'migrants' are working out so well in Germany and other EU countries let's bring them here and see what happens.

Muslims from the Middle East are the fastest-growing legal immigration into the U.S., more than Mexico or Central America.
7 million Syrians have applied to come to the U.S. as refugees, thanks to Obama’s and now Trump’s policy of aiding the jihadist “rebels” against the Assad government in the ongoing Syrian civil war.
Muslims are over-represented among America’s welfare-dependent poor: Whereas 36% of Americans claim to earn less than $30,000 a year, thereby qualifying them to receive welfare, 45% of Muslims in America claim to earn less than $30,000/year.
Muslims refuse to learn the English language and assimilate, i.e., become Americanized.
Public schools with large numbers of Muslim students have a separate school-lunch menu in Arabic.

You do the math.

The Land of Lincoln, Illinois. "Home" of the JEF. Home of convicted Governor Rod Blagojevich. Not a friendly gun state unless you're a criminal in Chicago. Knowing that Illinois politicians aren't gun friendly Is this a wise and/or savy choice by Springfield Armory & Rock River Arms?

The gun community continues to react to news of a deal made by Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms to carve out an exemption from a state licensing scheme (SB-1657). Both Springfield and Rock River Arms have issued statements denying any knowledge of the deal negotiated on their behalf by the lobbyist for the Illinois Firearms Manufacturing Association (IFMA). An organization funded by Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms.

We can now reveal that Springfield and Rock River have, through IFMA, donated tens of thousands of dollars to Illinois anti-gun politicians over the last several years.

Screw Magazine conducts interviews about dreams.

“I dream all the time, lovely dreams. I dream about my wife. I don’t have nightmares. What do I got to be afraid of? I’m an old fighter pilot from World War 2. I’ve been knifed, shot and everything else.” – Mickey Spillane

Goodbye to a 146 year tradition, Ringling Brothers to close its doors.

Although the show went on for 146 years, ticket sales have now fallen considerably, forcing Ringling Bros. out of business.
This decline in ticket sales grew far worse after protests from animal rights groups caused the circus to retire its last performing elephants in 2016. “When we made the decisions to take the elephants off the road, in May of 2016, we saw a drop in ticket sales and attendance way beyond what we anticipated,” said Kenneth Feld, CEO of Feld Entertainment, the circus’ parent company.

Hot Rod Lincoln Really fast cycles.

Now the boys all thought I’d lost my sense,

Are you enjoying a Valu-Rite tonight? What proof is it? You don't know? How alcohol proof is determined.

An early example of beneficial government regulation, to proof alcohol was simply to test and verify that the contents of a barrel of liquid was what it was claimed to be.

The process began in England around the 16th century. Its original purpose was not consumer protection, but rather to ensure that the state (read: the King) collected the proper amount of taxes on the sale of the product (alcohol, called proof spirits, was taxed at a higher rate).

*****

Is the decline in religion contributing to the special snowflake protests?

Such a state seems to lend further credence to McWhorter’s belief that college protests have become a form of faith and mode of religious devotion for those who take part in them. If you think about it, such an occurrence is natural, for religious involvement gives individuals a sense of community and a cause worth living for. Take that away, and people will naturally search for a cause or meaning to replace it.


Something tells the ONT she it needs religion.

I guess your humble Cob is cruel, cold and hardhearted.

I don't see the comparison to Pro-Life and Pro-Climate control. No one has definitely said what the perfect temperature is or should be.

“When we talk about creation care in pro-life terms, in caring for our children, both born and unborn, 97 to 98 percent of people get it,” says Rev. Mitch Hescox, president and chief executive of the Pennsylvania-based Evangelical Environmental Network. “That’s one of the reasons that I believe our community is growing to take more action, to protect God’s creations and to protect children.”

It appears that Rev. Hescox missed this:


King James Bible Genesis 1:28
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Out traveling today I stopped in at my favorite convenience store for a cup of coffee. It was a chain and therefore had the resources to place caloric signs on the coffee urns, the creamer dispenser and the pre-made food tray. But, what about the small Mom & Pop stores? Trump administration says "No, to a death of a thousand cuts."

The Trump administration is delaying an onerous Obamacare regulation that left confusion as to what a menu is.

The Obama rule that mandated calorie labeling in restaurants and groceries was set to take effect on Friday. After complaints from small businesses, the Food and Drug Administration announced Monday it was delaying compliance for one year and will work to add flexibility to the regulation.

Difficult breakup, man becomes hermit.

There's two ways to read this. Either this guy really took the break-up hard. Or, after his wife left him, he decided to live exactly as he wanted, and he was the happiest man in the world.

I suspect there's a lot of married men who would revert to a caveman-like existence (perhaps to a less extreme degree) without the influence of their wives.

The ONT Musical Interlude


May 3, 1976, Paul McCartney made his first concert appearance in America in almost ten years when Wings kicked off their 31-date 'Wings Over America' tour at the Tarrant County Convention Center, Fort Worth, Texas.


Paul & Linda? Or John & Yoko? You decide.


Breakups are never easy. John Lennon's letter to Paul & Linda.

Finally, about not telling anyone that I left the Beatles—PAUL and Klein both spent the day persuading me it was better not to say anything—asking me not to say anything because it would ‘hurt the Beatles’—and ‘let’s just let it petre out’—remember? So get that into your petty little perversion of a mind, Mrs. McCartney—the cunts asked me to keep quiet about it. Of course, the money angle is important—to all of us—especially after all the petty shit that came from your insane family/in laws—and GOD HELP YOU OUT, PAUL—see you in two years—I reckon you’ll be out then—in spite of it all, love to you both, from us two.

P.S. about addressing your letter just to me—STILL….!!!

Do you like eating Jello? Thank the Lutherans. Do you like eating chicken. Thank the Catholics.

Chickens started becoming common in Europe around 800 A.D., during the Middle Ages. Around this time, Catholicism was also spreading, so people have speculated that Christianity's ban on eating four-legged animals during fasting periods may have lead to the chicken's rising prominence—and the authors found that a few genetic changes may have helped along the way

I'm an American and a Mutt, what about you?

—I’m loving all these Ancestry.com commercials where dim-witted actors say, “I thought I was a Tahitian Eskimo Mexican until I sent in my DNA test kit, and boy was I flummoxed when the results came back! I’m really Croatian with a mix of sub-Saharan! I guess I’ll be turning in my furry hat!”

This is a scam I’m thoroughly in favor of, because it reveals, once and for all, the dirty secret of American politics: Race doesn’t exist!

If you're a political junkie, you will find this interesting. If you're not, you probably won't. Your humble cob does.


Last week former Senator Jim DeMint was let go at the Heritage Foundation. The real reason that Jim DeMint was fired.

But if DeMint wasn’t the source of the problem, sources say, board members concluded he wasn’t the solution, either.

“When DeMint went in, Heritage became very political. It changed from a highly respected think tank to just a partisan tool and more ideological — more of a tea party organization than a think tank,” said Mickey Edwards, one of the organization’s founding trustees and a former Republican congressman from Oklahoma. “Hopefully, Feulner, if he takes over, can help reestablish Heritage as what it used to be during the Reagan years.”


Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. Lofty ideals are wonderful. They don't do you any good if they aren't implemented.
