Proof OTBL members are Commie Sympathizers

Now they have a link to the American Communist Party on their blog.
Who needs more proof than this that those at ontheborderline.net are Communist sympathizers.

Diversity Today: Are You "In The Know?"...hmmm

Seldom do I take time out to discuss the links over on the right side of this blog. Scroll down the right side and you will see a diverse variety of links that will take you to most points on the political and opinion spectrum. We don't try to stifle opinions on this blog, like other local blogs.

For instance, take the ontheborderline.net blog oozing out of Hudson. On that particular blog, you must sing their songs in the key they choose our you are kicked out of the choir and chastizied. It's much like a religious cult. Jonestown comes to mind.

You know how those cults work. There are a couple of head indocrinators with common names like Bill and Curt who ride intellectual herd of the gullible masses. They post guards on the perimeter to keep their disciples in their intellectual detention center. In these cults, brainwashing is a big part of the deal. At OTBL, it's more like hosing out the brain bucket.

Here you're free to roam about and discuss your opinions. You will never find us taking cheap shots at anyone participating on this blog. A little satire and lampooning yes, but never cheapshots.

I add links to the right side, as I run across them. Some of those links I visit frequently and some hardly at all. Some I hardily agree with and some I find repulsive. I don't believe in stifling opinion and I do believe it is important for people to explore a variety of thoughts and opinions.

Below are a couple of samples of links. Group #1 is related to blogs, political parties, etc. Notice the diversity available. You can checkout the USA Communist Party and the John Birch Society. Both links offer interesting perspectives on the issues. Of course, intelligent thinkers like us know that broadening our mental horizons and perspectives requires stretching the mental muscles in all directions. It's the ying and yang of the thang.

Group #2 is a list of links to a variety of political periodicals. Leftist periodicals like the Nation and the New Republic are there as are rightist periodicals like the Weekly Standard and the National Review.

I hope you take the time to explore these links and learn from the different perspectives available on the Internet. It is amazing what's out there. Whether you are a member of the local Republican or Democratic parties or an independent or an Internet fruitcake salesman, you should find some of these links very useful.

Also, one additional link that I've been working on is called JPN Infolinks. You will find that blog site a useful source for political and government research and information.

The Gospel - According to Luke & Viciousventor

visciousventor Says:

"These children should be expelled from school, and required to go to work. They can obtain their GED sometime in the future after they are done playing mommy and daddy."

The Gospel According to John:

The Adulterous Woman

But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them.

The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the center of the court,

they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act.

"Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?"

They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the ground.

But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, " He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."

Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.

When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the center of the court.

I Straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?"

She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, " I do not condemn you, either Go From now on sin no more."

Middle Ground

"Go along to get along. Find the common ground. The world is not black and white, it is gray. Compromise. Be moderate. We have heard all these phrases before. Well I think a moderate is nothing more than someone who does not understand or is too afraid to stand up for what they believe in. So how do we find middle ground? We can’t."


"Beware those who compromise—for any reason! There is no middle ground in either social or fiscal responsibility."

Hudson Republicans Remember President Bush's 2004 Visit

Conservatism Weakens America

George W. Bush and the corrupt Republican leadership on Capitol Hill have done wonders to tarnish their party's image among Americans, with the GOP registering a paltry 39 percent favorability rating in the latest Opinion Dynamics poll commissioned by Fox News (.pdf), and even worse a 49 percent unfavorability rating. These numbers are particularly bad when considering that the Democratic Party's favorability ratings are near their 3-year high, with 51 percent viewing it positively and just 35 percent viewing it negatively.

But this might not be a low point for the Republican Party. While 2006 was a terrible year for the GOP, particularly in comparison with other cycles -- even dating back three decades -- two more years of poor decisions by the Bush administration could cement negative feelings towards both the Republican Party and conservatism as a whole in ways that might not be turned back for some time to come.

And it's not just about Iraq or corrupt Republicans. It's a whole slew of bad choices that are draining our collective resources and weakening our national security. Take, for instance, the revelation today that the Bush administration apparently turned Iran away nearly four years ago when the country's leadership came to us willing to give in to many of our demands. The Associated Press has the story.

So what does a penis cost?

A ROMANIAN doctor cut off a patient's penis and chopped it into small pieces in a fit of rage after surgery he was performing went wrong. "I was stressed," he told shocked staff at Bucharest Hospital after corrective surgery to the man's testicles went wrong and he "overreacted".

He has been struck off and ordered to pay the man $75,000.

Pulitzer Prize Winning Columnist Art Buchwald, 81, Dies

Art Buchwald, 81, the newspaper humor columnist for more than a half-century who found new comic material in the issues that come up at the end of life, died of kidney failure last night at his son's home in Washington, his family announced today.

Buchwald, an owlish, cigar-chomping extrovert, zinged the high, mighty and humor-challenged. His column, syndicated to more than 550 newspapers at one point, won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1982. He also published more than 30 books.

Fredrick Nietzsche plagiarizes the thoughts of Dr. Bill

Why I am So Wise

"May I venture to indicate one last trait of my nature, which has caused me no little difficulty in my intercourse with men? I am gifted with an utterly uncanny instinct of cleanliness; so that I can ascertain physiologically-that is to say, smell-the proximity, I may say, the inmost core, the "entrails" of every human soul. . . . This sensitiveness has psychological antennae, with which I feel and handle every secret: the hidden filth at the base of many a human character which may be the result of base blood, but which may be superficially overlaid by education, is revealed to me at the first glance. If my observation has been correct, such people, unbearable to my sense of cleanliness, also become conscious, on their part, of the cautiousness resulting from my loathing: and this does not make them any more fragrant."

"For what purpose humanity is there should not even concern us: why you are there, that you should ask yourself: and if you have no ready answer, then set for yourself goals, high and noble goals, and perish in pursuit of them! I know of no better life purpose than to perish in attempting the great and the impossible..."

Tax Saving Strategies from OTBL

When being nuts is what you do for a living, you don't have to let the taxman confiscate your hard earned pay.
Remember, School Board Harassment is a legitimate business activity and fully tax deductable. That copy machine you lug to the meetings... Write it off! Calling the employers of local Socialists, late night threat calls... They're all a cost of doing business. Remember other deductable items, videotape, duct tape, and clown suits. Your subscription to The Von Mises Monthly, the John Birch Society Newsletter and The Hudson Star Observer ( if you haven't cancelled yet ) , another deductable expense. Don't forget the internet ink and the cost of your bitstream.
These are just a few ideas to save on you tax bill, just like Alfonse. Good luck, and see you in the "pen".

Al Capone

Alphonse Capone (January 17, 1899 – January 25, 1947), popularly known as Al "Scarface" Capone, was an infamous Italian-American gangster in the 1920s and 1930s. His business card reportedly described him as a used furniture dealer.
Born in New York City to Neapolitan emigrants Gabriele and Teresina Capone, he began his career in Brooklyn before moving to Chicago and becoming Chicago's most notorious crime figure. By the end of the 1920's, he had gained the attention of the Federal Bureau of Investigation following his being placed on the Chicago Crime Commission's "public enemies" list. Although never successfully convicted of racketeering charges, Capone's criminal career ended in 1931 when he was indicted and convicted by the federal government for income tax evasion.

01/17/1893: "Free market capitalists" overthrow Lili'uokalani, Queen of Hawaii

Queen Liliuokalani of Hawaii was deposed in a bloodless revolution by a group of businessmen and sugar planters and a provisional government established, with annexation by the United States as its aim.

Lili'uokalani was arrested on January 16, 1895 (several days after a failed rebellion by Robert Wilcox) when firearms were found in the gardens of her home, of which she denied any knowledge. She was sentenced to five years of hard labor in prison and fined $5000, but the sentence was commuted to imprisonment in an upstairs bedroom of ʻIolani Palace until she was released in 1896, with the establishment of the Republic of Hawaiʻi. Failing in attempts to regain the throne, she unsuccessfully entered against the federal government claims totaling $450,000 for property and other losses, making personal claim to the crown lands. The territorial legislature of Hawaii finally voted her an annual pension of $4,000 and permitted her to receive the income from a sugar plantation of 6,000 acres (24 km²). She went home to Washington Place, where she lived as a private citizen until her death in 1917 due to complications from a stroke. She was 79. As expected, Hawaiʻi was annexed to the United States through a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress in 1898.

Luke Ponders the Deeper Mysteries of Life

"Every day, people judge you by the words you use. Rightly or wrongly, they make assumptions about your intelligence, your education and your capabilities. Nothing makes a better impression than a solid mastery of the English language.."

That's why Luke and 2 or 3 other borderline.nut bloggers pooled their resources to purchase the Gerbil Advantage correspondence school CD lecture series.

"Imagine yourself at a business or social gathering. You have the floor. All eyes are on you. You're speaking with confidence and poise, always choosing precisely the right word.

Unfiltered Externalities

Martin Luther King, Jr.

"There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don't have it, they unconsciously want to destroy it."

"If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well."

Liberals Get New Dike Sign Approved By City Council Socialists


By Carl Sandburg

The policeman buys shoes slow and careful; the teamster buys gloves slow and careful; they take care of their feet and hands; they live on their feet and hands.

The milkman never argues; he works alone and no one speaks to him; the city is asleep when he is on the job; he puts a bottle on six hundred porches and calls it a day's work; he climbs two hundred wooden stairways; two horses are company for him; he never argues.

The rolling-mill men and the sheet-steel men are brothers of cinders; they empty cinders out of their shoes after the day's work; they ask their wives to fix burnt holes in the knees of their trousers; their necks and ears are covered with a smut; they scour their necks and ears; they are brothers of cinders.


Which School Are You Hailing From?

Recently reported on OTBL: "Our View respectfully disagrees with Dean over at uncommoninsight who now takes issue with our rejection of the term and theory of externality. I guess we could simply sum things up and state that Dean is coming from the Chicago School and Our View is hailing from Austria, but that would leave more questions in the minds of readers."
