I Went To A Hunting Party Once. I Didn't Like It. Terrible People, They All Started Hunting ONT!

Greetings, and welcome to Thursday night. I've been getting a lot of emails from the Horde asking about the barrel. “Where is it?” people want to know, “What is it like inside”? Well, I can't tell you that, but I will post this picture of the outside:

Watch your tags, OK?


Thursday Quiz


Can you guess the TV show from the first three words of its theme song?

I got 10/10, how did you do?

Molon Lovey

We need to be forthright, in no uncertain terms, what exactly will be the consequences if they try to confiscate our weapons.


Weird Link Of The Day


Little Nuns

So apparently this artist got a request for a commission. I don't know the exact request, but it contained the words “Nun” and “duck”. That may not be exactly what the person requesting the art wanted to ask for, but the artist thought that was a hell of an idea, and thus nuns and ducks was born. Here are some of the results.


On Bias And The Narrative


He Looked At The Data And Discovered The BLM Narrative About Cops Was A Lie. Then He Was Fired.

“A decade ago, my experience at Thomson Reuters would have been unthinkable. Most Americans probably think it’s still unthinkable. That’s what makes it so dangerous. Most of us don’t understand how deeply compromised our news sources have become. Most of us have no idea that we are suffused with fictions and half-truths that sound sort of believable and are shielded from scrutiny by people whose job is to challenge them. This is true, above all, of my fellow liberals, who assume that only Republicans complain about the mainstream media. But this is not a partisan issue. This is a We The People issue,” he wrote.

This from a liberal. How long can a country be gaslit before it says enough?

Education

This is really Ace's drum to beat, he's been quite vocal about it lately, but I found this to be of interest. Now it could be that this is a more or less normal sex-ed bok, but in tone it seems to be aimed at a pretty young demographic, and seems intended to normalize teens having sex instead of just explaining the mechanics.

Musical Interlude


Sunday Morning Coming Down was popularized by Johnny Cash, and his is probably the best known version of the song, but it was written by Kris Kristofferson. This is a fan made video for the song using clips from some of Kristofferson's many movie roles, and it's excellent, as good as any custom made music video. The clips from Cisco Pike are jarring – without his trademark beard, Kristofferson is almost a dead ringer for Kurt Russell. Johnny's version of the song is excellent...but I don't think anyone sung it with the pathos it was written to evoke as well as Kristofferson himself.


But It's “Free”!


Why is Canada euthanising the poor?

Many in the healthcare sector came to the same conclusion. Even before Bill C-7 was enacted, reports of abuse were rife. A man with a neurodegenerative disease testified to Parliament that nurses and a medical ethicist at a hospital tried to coerce him into killing himself by threatening to bankrupt him with extra costs** or by kicking him out of the hospital**, and by withholding water from him for 20 days. Virtually every disability rights group in the country opposed the new law. To no effect: for once, the government found it convenient to ignore these otherwise impeccably progressive groups.


Since then, things have only gotten worse. A woman in Ontario was forced into euthanasia because her housing benefits did not allow her to get better housing which didn’t aggravate her crippling allergies. Another disabled woman applied to die because she ‘simply cannot afford to keep on living’. Another sought euthanasia because Covid-related debt** left her unable to pay for the treatment** which kept her chronic pain bearable – under the present government, disabled Canadians got $600 in additional financial assistance during Covid; university students got $5,000.

** Whoh, whoa, whoa, hold on there. I'm informed ad nauseam that healthcare in Canada is “free”, and that nobody has to worry about medical costs. Could that be a....lie???


And The Pulitzer Prize Goes To..


...this article. What Bobby McIlvaine Left Behind

And well deserved, too. An excellent piece about the impact of 9/11 on the family and fiancée of a man who died in the attack. It's fascinating to see the different way that the reacted, and how they learned to cope with the loss. Lengthy, but worth the read.


Tonight's ONT as ben brought to you by Iron Will. Joy personified.
