It's A Jolly Holiday With ONT

Hello everyone! I always try to find a high quality photo to lead off with, but unfortunately tonight's is kinda grainy.


Back The Blue?

Texas Police Department Rejects Gift From Conservative Christian Company

Later the same day, the police department expressed its gratitude in a separate social media post.

“Sincere thanks to our friends at Patriot Mobile,” GPD wrote. “We are blessed to have their support and encouragement. Today they presented us with a certificate to host a pizza party for our staff. We are grateful for the opportunity to have a fun and relaxing meal together as a team.”
“The unexpected and very nice thanks was a welcome surprise,” Patriot Mobile Chief Communications Officer Leigh Wambsganns told The Epoch Times in an interview.
But shortly after the social media post, the police department began receiving backlash for accepting a gift from the cellphone service provider, which describes itself as a Christian conservative company.

The PD then deleted their thank you post and said that they were declining the gift. You know it was a handful of rabid lefties. When are we as a society going to learn to ignore the fringe elements (both left and right) as they deserve? What this country needs is a smidgen of backbone and a lot of good old fashioned fuck off.

Question: “Well Mr. Fair Play, what would you think if the lunch had been donated by Murder Inc. Planned Parenthood?”

I'd hate it, but I'd say the same thing. PP is a legal member of the community. I'd like to change that (and in Texas we have, for abortion anyway), but as long as it is, I would have no problem with them having the same civic engagement as any other organization. Now if it was something illegal, say a drug cartel? No.

Daily Cute

If you read down you get more context. Apparently what they bonded over was a love of mysteries, with the 22 year old in question claiming that he was “always able to solve them”. With that context, this is a really cute way for her to give her number. After the tweet went viral, she contacted Henpecked Hal, and the prospective lovebirds are on their way to being reunited.

This Is Nuts

Baby among six people sliced to death by ‘glass-encrusted’ strings during blood-drenched ‘kite fighting’ festival

I know that this is a longstanding local tradition, but why would you take your kids out when it's happening? People “fight” kites by coating the kite strings in ground glass, and then attempting to slice the strings of other kites. As a result you get these razor sharp cut strings flopping all over the place, and they kill people. Crazy. I mean, I like demolition derby, but I'm not going to go to one if my seats are on the floor. Seems like a good day to stay inside.

The Peanut Allergy Theory Of Societal Collapse, By GP Gormogons

The cause may be a bit tongue in cheek, but I think GP is on to something here. Click on the tweet to read the entire thread.

On Masculinity

Masculinity Isn’t Toxic, Our Erasure Of It Is

Yes, men should be physically strong. They should also exemplify traditional masculine virtues like courage, independence, and assertiveness. But why? Not so they can sh-tpost about how ripped or good-looking they are compared to libs, but so they can protect and defend those who are weak.

That is the organizing principle behind the entire concept of manliness: it is not a style or a pose or an adornment. It is a way of being, of living according to the principle that you are responsible for the welfare of others, and should sacrifice yourself for their sake.
What does that mean in practice? It means stepping in to help those in need, whether it’s a woman being harassed or a stranger whose car has broken down. It means risking your own safety to protect someone being attacked, instead of just filming the attack on your phone and posting it online like a beta.
It also means marrying and remaining faithful to the same woman your entire life, and raising a family with her. It means working whatever hours and at whatever job in order to provide for that family. It means going to church every Sunday, whether you feel like it or not, to pass your faith on to your kids. It means getting up in the middle of the night to feed a colicky baby. It means taking your two-year-old daughter to swim class and singing all the songs — your own sense of dignity be damned.

The author goes on to state that as a gay man, he breaks fundamentally with the last paragraph, but I don't think it's necessarily so. He can be faithful to his partner, eschewing gay piss orgies and multiple meaningless hookups. He may not have kids, but as long as his sexuality is a private thing – and by that I don't mean hiding it, but keeping it a private thing as sexuality between a man and his wife is supposed to be a private thing – who cares? I have gay friends, and they are as repulsed by LBGQTRSTUVW^%#*Whatever grooming of children as I am. Although one of them did convince me to do something that I normally wouldn't: He's in the arts and he cast me in a musical. Yes, I will be appearing in a community theater production of Mary Poppins this spring. Rehearsals have started, and we're working on the ensemble parts. It's giving me S-u-p-e-r the C-a-l-i-f- worst R-a-g-i-l- earworms! I-s-t-i-c-e-x-p-i-a-l-i-d-o-c-i-o-u-s!

*Sigh* At least I can spell it now.


Sorry, media, the great reset is real

Or take the Associated Press, which had the headline: "As elites arrive in Davos, conspiracy theories thrive online." It continued, "Now, in increasingly mainstream corners of the internet and on conservative talk shows, 'The Great Reset' has become shorthand for what skeptics say is a reorganization of society, using global uncertainty as a guise to take away rights. Believers argue that measures including pandemic lockdowns and vaccine mandates are tools to consolidate power and undercut individual sovereignty."

Except, that's a pretty accurate description of Schwab and the WEF's goals. Don't take my word for it — take Schwab's. In the description of his aptly titled COVID-19: The Great Reset, we're told:

"COVID-19: The Great Reset is a guide for anyone who wants to understand how COVID-19 disrupted our social and economic systems, and what changes will be needed to create a more inclusive, resilient and sustainable world going forward. ... This is the purpose of this book: to shake up and to show the deficiencies which were manifest in our global system, even before COVID broke out."

They are attempting to build the first empire in history without doing it militarily. Even if they succeed – and I don't think they will – it won't last long. Either China will stab them in the back and take over or the remains of the west will be overrun by the third world. Picture Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises before Batman comes back.

Where Dimples Come From

People Are Getting Very Upset After Learning What Chin Dimples Are

Almost every muscle in your body connects a bone to another bone.  Your bones yank on each other, that’s how you move. …

The heart is a totally different kind of muscle – it yanks on itself to pump your blood around.

In our faces, we have a bunch of muscles that do not connect to other bones.
“You can tell this, right? Like, all the movement that faces do, we that we can talk and emote and stuff – we’re not yanking on bones here. We’re yanking on skin.”

When you contract that muscle, it yanks. It yanks on the skin and makes those little dimples

Tonight's ONT has been brought to you by BOOM!
