Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. Will Rogers


Quote II

Men are run ragged by female sexuality all their lives. From the beginning of his life to the end, no man ever fully commands any woman. It's an illusion. Men are pussy-whipped. And they know it. That's what the strip clubs are about; not woman as victim, not woman as slave, but woman as goddess. Camille Paglia


Quote III

These things will destroy the human race: politics without principle, progress without compassion, wealth without work, learning without silence, religion without fearlessness and worship without awareness. Anthony de Mello

Wanted Dear or Alive. The search for the Nazi Angel of Death, Joseph Memgele.

One of the documents, viewed by The Jerusalem Post's Hebrew language sister publication Maariv, contains the conclusion of a secret cabinet meeting called by then-prime minister Menachem Begin in 1977: "We decided to instruct the Mossad to renew the search for Nazi war criminals, especially Joseph Mengele, with a view to bring them to trial in Israel. If they cannot be brought to trial - kill them."

-13 below zero and snow up to my ass doesn't sound so bad after all.

The LaTuna Fire has led to the evacuation of hundreds of homes and the closure of a major freeway and many roads.

My family and I moved from Chicago to the Los Angeles area a little over a little year ago. We were almost immediately introduced to the awesome power of wildfires when the Sand Fire burned over 55,000 acres within view of our home. While not yet the size of the Sand Fire, the LaTuna Fire is still the largest in the Los Angeles city history. The fire has prompted the evacuation of hundreds of homes and closed many roads including the heavily travelled I-210 freeway.

The Greater Chicago Region. Not content to be in the news for shootings and murders now have infected coyotes to worry about.

Hanover Police are warning residents of the Chicago-area suburb that the mangy dogs they've been seeing roaming around are in fact "infected coyotes." Also, be sure to avoid the infected coyotes.


And if that weren't bad enough, The Bears Still Suck.

Ouch! It appears that Nintendo's legal staff didn't research patents thoroughly. Nintendo found guilty of patent infringement. And it isn't going to be cheap.

A jury has ruled that Nintendo must pay $10.1 million because its Wii and Wii U systems infringe a patent belonging to a Dallas medical motion-detection company.

iLife sued Nintendo (PDF) in 2013 after filing lawsuits against four other companies in 2012. The case went to a jury trial in Dallas, and yesterday the jury returned its verdict (PDF). They found that Nintendo infringed US Patent No. 6,864,796, first filed in 1999, which describes "systems and methods for evaluating movement of a body relative to an environment."

Under Angela Merkel Germany is going to hell in a hand-basket. Thank God for Oliver Stumpfel. Who is Oliver Stumpfel you ask? Why he is a new record setter.

Sept. 4 (UPI) -- A German man broke the record for highest number of beer mugs carried over a distance of 40 meters Sunday.

Oliver Strümpfel, a Bavarian tax inspector, carried 29 full, liter-size glasses that collectively weights almost 154lbs at the Gillamoos Fair in Abensberg, one of Bavaria's oldest beer festivals.

This certainly makes The ONT think twice before ordering a Banana Split. Spider eggs. Yuck!!

A mum has told how she nearly fed a banana riddled with Brazilian wandering spider eggs to her baby.
Debbie Campbell says she spotted a clump of white eggs on the fruit she was about to give to 18-month-old Albie.

In "The road to hell is paved with good intentions" category, The WW2 Raid on Amiens Prison in France.

Operation Jericho was an air raid conducted by the RAF with the goal of freeing the captives of the Nazi-held Amiens prison in France. The raid happened on 18 February 1944, and though it wasn’t a large-scale operation, its precision and accuracy meant that it contributed greatly to the war effort and helped to raise the morale of the French, living under Nazi occupation.

Just remember, The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. If you are employed where conservatives aren't persecuted, consider yourself blessed.

“Before it was, ‘I don’t agree with you,’ but now it has evolved into this new thing that is much more aggressive, ‘don’t even say something that is counter to what I believe,’” says Aaron Ginn, co-founder of Lincoln Network, which looks to connect conservative techies with government and political work.

Well isn't this special? The government looking out for your well being.

U.S. Virgin Islands Gov. Kenneth Mapp signed an emergency order allowing the seizure of private guns, ammunition, explosives and property the National Guard may need to respond to Hurricane Irma.

Mapp signed the order Monday in preparation for Hurricane Irma. The order allows the Adjutant General of the Virgin Islands to seize private property they believe necessary to protect the islands, subject to approval by the territory’s Justice Department.

The ONT doesn't know all the ins and outs of gun laws in the V.I. But, this sure seems to be a reach. Self-defense is self-defense, storm or no storm.

The "Conservatives" in Congress should pay attention to real conservatives.

Someone took some time off sucking the government tit long enough to blast Trump. Perhaps if he hadn't acted unconstitutionally he could have passed a law the correct way.

Former President Barack Obama ripped the Trump administration's announcement to cancel his DACA executive action on Tuesday, writing in a Facebook post that it was "cruel" and "self-defeating."

Obama had signaled that he would speak out if President Donald Trump went after his 2012 action, which stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It shielded 800,000 young illegal immigrants from deportation who were brought to the U.S. as children.

Go eat a big bag of dicks you JEF.

September 5, 2008, A study of more than 36,000 people from around the world concluded that musical tastes and personality type were closely related. The research, which was carried out by Professor Adrian North of Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh in the UK suggested classical music fans were shy, while heavy metal fans were gentle and at ease with themselves. Fans of Indie music had low self-esteem and were not hard working, fans of Rap music had high self-esteem and were outgoing. Country & Western fans were hardworking and outgoing, Reggae fans were creative but not hardworking, and fans of chart pop had high self-esteem, were not creative, but where hardworking and outgoing. via thisdayinmusic.com

The ACLU 1 - Los Angeles PD & Sheriff's Dept. 0. CA Supreme Court rules that automatic plate reader records have to be turned over.

Both entities tried to keep these records from the EFF and ACLU by claiming every single one of the millions of plate records were "investigatory records," exempt from disclosure under California's public records law. This apparently included the millions of "non-hit" records never utilized in any LAPD/LASD investigation. With the plate readers collecting 1.5-2 million records per week, they were basically arguing every driver passing by an ALPR was under investigation.
That's not how the state's Supreme Court sees it [PDF]. The "investigatory records" exemption pertains to targeted, ongoing investigations. The public records law cannot be stretched to cover indiscriminate mass surveillance.
Accordingly, we hold that real parties’ process of ALPR scanning does not produce records of investigations, because the scans are not conducted as part of a targeted inquiry into any particular crime or crimes. The scans are conducted with an expectation that the vast majority of the data collected will prove irrelevant for law enforcement purposes. We recognize that it may not always be an easy task to identify the line between traditional “investigation” and the sort of “bulk” collection at issue here. But wherever the line may ultimately fall, it is at least clear that real parties’ ALPR process falls on the bulk collection side of it.

Lovable Senator John McCain, called out by a AZ State Assemblyman.

That’s not the only promise McCain forgot, according to Thorpe.

“In a melodramatic reversal of his earlier votes, McCain in July condemned the American people to [continue] suffering under unaffordable health insurance premiums and unattainable deductibles,” he wrote. “Just like his promise to build the “danged fence,” his promise to repeal and replace the failing Obamacare appears to have only been hyperbolic campaign rhetoric.”

Now if the Democrat in Republican clothing would drift into the AZ sunset we could all be happy.

Ethanol. The stuff is shit in gasoline. But fighting cancer? It may be a low cost treatment.

Researchers from Duke University have achieved a 100 percent cure rate for squamous cell carcinoma in a hamster model by injecting an ethanol-based gel directly into tumors. The work, published in Nature Scientific Reports, was inspired by an existing low-cost therapy called ethanol ablation, and improves the method to work on a wider variety of tumors.

Ethanol — the kind of alcohol that makes cocktails interesting — can kill some kinds of tumors when injected because it destroys proteins and fatally dehydrates cells, in a process called ethanol ablation. Ethanol ablation is already used to treat one variety of liver cancer, with a cost of less than $5 per treatment and a success rate similar to that of surgery.

So a Tar Heel wouldn't want to appropriate that culture?
