As we approach the 4th of July Weekend, The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM. Boat launch how-to and etiquette.

If you are going to be out on the water this weekend? Put the damn phone away, right Garrett?

What would you do if someone idled into your boat like this?
Imagine it is a warm, sunny day on your favorite fishing lake. You and your buddies are out wetting a line in one of your favorite spots when you notice another boat idling along about 300 yards out. After a while you realize it is getting closer and closer. The next thing you know, the boat is ramming into your boat.

That is exactly what happens to YouTuber Darien is Fishin. At first Darien and his buddies think it is someone they know messing with them. It is not until the other boat is about five feet away that they realize the other boater is distracted by his cell phone and has made a serious mistake.

Those of you here on a regular basis know I have issues with law enforcement. As an imperfect human I should remember that with any profession there are good and bad cops.

The newest proposed law from Virginia is just asinine. How to paint a bigger target onto a LEO.

Democrats in the Virginia state Senate have proposed reducing the charge for assaulting a police officer from a felony to a misdemeanor according to the Fort Hunt Herald.

The proposal comes with a number of other police reforms including the banning of no-knock warrants, banning chokeholds, requiring police to warn before shooting, and creating a “duty to intervene” for officers who see other officers committing acts of misconduct.

Samantha Pfefferle says her higher education dream came true when she was accepted into Milwaukee’s famed Marquette University.

That dream appears to be “going down the drain” after Pfefferle failed a Marquette admissions litmus test — a test that tolerates no conservative counterpoints to the Jesuit school’s ironclad liberal “guiding values.”

The 18-year-old New London High School graduate told Empower Wisconsin that she had a hastily-called phone meeting last Tuesday with Marquette admissions staff. They put Pfefferle through the ringer, asking her questions like, what would she do if she lived in the same dorm as a “Dreamer” (a young, undocumented immigrant in America under the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors —DREAM — Act), and the Dreamer didn’t like Pfefferle’s opinions?

They asked her what she would do if an illegal immigrant lived nearby and didn’t like her comments.

Obviously this woman Karen never learned to mind her own business. People.


MONTCLAIR, NJ- Montclair Police are calling recent acts in a neighborhood, in which a neighbor called the police following a disagreement over permits, a "dispute between neighbors."

The interaction, which took place on Marion Rd. on Monday, was partially recorded, drew local police to the scene on Monday and sparked a brief protest the next day. Officers arrived at 12:23 p.m., police said.

A woman named Susan Schulz, whom social media users are calling 'Permit Karen,' is alleged to have walked onto her neighbors property to question whether or not they had a permit for the work they were doing. She then accuses her neighbor, Fareed Nassor Hayat, an attorney and Law Professor at the City University of New York, of pushing her. His wife Norrinda can be heard off camera disputing those claims. Schulz then turns to her neighbors, who had come outside to watch the commotion. They were less than enthused to corroborate her claims. She then contacts the Montclair Police Department.

I guess I'm going to hell. I don't tip my server enough according to Virtue Signaler Extraordinaire Chris Crowley.

A police department in Colorado is investigating three officers who were allegedly photographed reenacting the chokehold maneuver cops used on Elijah McClain near a memorial for him, a report said Monday.

The officers allegedly took the photos near where McClain was stopped and detained by Aurora Police soon before his death in 2019, CBS Denver reported, citing sources familiar with the investigation.

The photos of the cops allegedly spread around the Aurora Police Department before the internal investigations department caught wind of them and started a probe.

The interim police chief of the department said in a statement late Monday night that all the officers involved were suspended with pay pending the
