The Morning Rant 04-07-2021 [OregonMuse]
— Ace Open Blog


The rant is going to be somewhat abbreviated today as I seem to be spending most of my time wrestling with this new software.

I don't know about you, but I'm really getting tired of this:



So, just like Kristi Noem did last week, Hutchinson managed to invent a reason why the very issue the progressives were hitting on the hardest is not worth fighting. Or, perhaps, it is worth fighting just as long as someone else does it, not them. And aren't they supposed to be the best of the conservative wing of the Republican party? Not like those namby-pamby RINOs like Romney and Collins and Murkowski, Hutchinson and Noem are supposed to be rock-ribbed conservatives with spines of steel, right?

Maybe. But not when it counts. Never when it counts

Just when you need them the most, they're nowhere to be found. Just like Mike Pence during the post-election brouhaha. At the precise moment when his voice might have counted for something (his political future, if nothing else), he disappeared. He was last seen running for the tall grass. I can't wait until he runs again in 2024. It'll be fun watching him getting jeered at and heckled at every campaign event.

"This not the hill to die on" they loudly proclaim as the country continues to slide down the slippery slope. (h/t Pi Man)

A Question No Normal Person Has To Ask:

Muldoon's Breakfast:


AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to me, "Annie’s Stew” (apaslo atsign hotmail dot com).

Prayer Requests:

12/12 – Katya, the designated driver sends an update that she was in the ER with shortness of breath last weekend, and has found she has a blood clot in her lung now. The blood thinner she was on for the clot in her leg wasn’t doing the job, so she is giving herself injections twice a day of enoxaparin sodium. She feels good, mostly. She sends her thanks for prayers and support through her chemo treatments.

2/16 Update – Katya sent word that her surgery went great, but she’s had some issues since then. (The blood thinner medication for blood clots caused low blood pressure. Then she was losing blood, which caused dizziness and confusion. She got 4 units of blood, so that seems to be getting better. Her pneumonia and chemo have not helped with all of this, but it is getting better.) The surgeon thinks they got 99% of the cancer during surgery. And she is so happy that the surgery is over!

3/2 Update – Katya says she is healing well now, and things are back on track with her treatment.

3/23 Update – Katya continues to heal well from the mastectomy. She still is dealing with pneumonia, but has oxygen at home, which is helping, and she will see a pulmonologist on 3/31. She will start 6 weeks of radiation therapy on Thursday (3/25).

3/29 Update – Katya’s incisions have separated in several spots, so she cannot proceed with radiation until they are healed. Her new date to begin is April 8.

2/19 – Pooky’s Girl requests prayers for Pooky, as he is going to have surgery to correct his deviated septum on 3/9. She is praying that the anesthesia works (he’s had problems with that in the past) and that it helps him breathe better and in turn helps his mental state.

3/16 Update – Pooky’s surgery went very well! He’s now adjusting to being able to really breathe for the first time in years. Pooky and Pooky’s Girl are very thankful for the many prayers sent on their behalf.

2/26 - BeckoningChasm requested prayers for L,Elle, a former member of the Horde, who is going to have surgery and is a bit frightened by the prospect. Any prayers would be most appreciated.

2/26 – Mindful Webworker requested prayers for complete healing for his wife, MJ, who has for decades lived with a disfiguring and debilitating health problem. It has lessened and worsened by never gone away. Suddenly, the night before last, it has become very much worse than it has ever been.

3/3 – Fenelon Spoke also passed along a prayer request for Farmer mentioned the other night that his wife Jules's mother was near death in hospice so they need strength and comfort and a peaceful passing of his MIL who has been in hospice for about five months.

3/10 – Ladyl requests prayers for her friend Teresa, who is getting a bone marrow transplant for multiple myeloma on 3/11.

3/16 – Pollywog the ‘Ette requests prayers for "Thing From Snowy Mountain”. He sends thanks for the prayers for his mother’s recovery from Covid, and for him as he struggled against the people who wanted her to be left to die. Now he needs wisdom, strength, favor as he negotiates the bureaucracy that almost killed his Mom, and for financial provision to care for her.

3/24 – Cranford Pundit requests prayers for his long-time coworker and friend Pete, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer that spread to his liver. His cancer inoperable, but they are starting aggressive chemo the week of 3/29. While he will not be cured, please pray for the quality of his life, wisdom for him and for his wife, and for their two elementary-school-age children.

3/31 – Roxxee requests prayers for her daughter. She was on our prayer list at Christmastime, as she was in a deep psychosis then, but she did get treatment and was improving. Now she is backsliding again and has quit her job (which will cause her to lose her insurance). She will not listen to her doctors or Roxxee, and as she is an adult, there is nothing they can do. Roxxee requests prayers for her daughter to realize that her life is spinning out of control and she needs help, and for strength and peace for herself as she tries to cope.

4/5 – Captain Whitebread asks for prayers of healing for his sister, who has been diagnosed with diastolic heart failure, and prayers for strength for her and those who depend on her: her Mom (who is retired), her adult son (who is autistic and cannot work), her grand-niece who she is raising.


For Healing:

2/24 – Lyndi Barker could use some prayers. She has Stage 4 cancer that has spread everywhere.

2/24 – Prayers are requested for Suzy. She is fighting liver cancer, and now just barely survived a bout of septic shock. Prayers for her and her husband are appreciated.

3/3 – Fenelon Spoke requested prayers on Backwards Boy’s behalf. Backwards Gal is very ill and he doesn't think she'll live through the year. So prayers for a miracle of healing and that God surrounds them with grace and strength in whatever ways are needed.

3/3 – Fenelon Spoke requested prayers for .....(ellipsis), who has been sick since the winter of 2020 and needs healing).

4/3 – My life is insanity asks for prayers for peace of mind and healing for her sister, who just learned that her breast cancer from 6 years ago has spread to her spine. She has a small tumor at the base of her neck and a fracture in her lower back. She is waiting on a treatment plan and is unsure at this time what that will bring.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her atapaslo at-sign hotmail dot com

If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her. Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after five weeks or so unless we receive an update.

Romans 8:26-27

26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

Unfortunately, there is no 'who dis' today as I haven't yet figured out how to do pop-up windows.

How Do I Define My Gender if No One is Watching Me?
Without a public eye, who are we?
There's enough to unpack in the headline alone to fill a graduate thesis. It's hard to believe that the older members of the identity cult were the folks you'd likely find on the "self-actualization" bandwagon a few decades ago.

I am not going to hunt down and read the article, but my bet is that it's a call for redistribution of fame and the need for a mechanism to guarantee access to the public spotlight for some amount of time. Kind of like a state guarantee of Worhol's "15 minutes of fame."

42 Listen, a couple things are at play here.
1. There is essentially no corporeal Republican Party/Conservative Movement.

It exists as a collection of self dealing, charlatan's, losers, beak dippers and back benchers.

2. There is no practicable, politically exercisable conservative philosophy.


It exists as an ephemeral, theoretical circle jerk.

3. The only way forward is a muscular American Nationalism and Populism.

Donald Trump advanced more conservative principles and ideas in four years alone than the entire "Conservative Establishment" has in 40 years.


So, that's the name of that tune.

Unfortunately, she doesn't seem to be improving. As soon as one issue is addressed, another one comes along to complicate things. I'm starting to think she won't be able to come home again since she seems to be getting weaker despite their best efforts.

They are all idiots, except for maybe the cop, for thinking that interrupting a service to do an inspection was a good idea.  On good friday.

67 The left doesn't actually care about any of this stuff anyway - the goal is to have a constantly changing "moral" viewpoint forced on the populace to keep them compliant on the important stuff - namely money and power.

So the Republicans literally gain NOTHING by going along with them.

If you are a H8tey Mch8ter which h8tes and are probably a NAZI for opposing cutting the penises off of children, what did you gain by continuing to fund Planned Parenthood and cancelling people who opposed gay marriage?

And, by so doing, broadened the party to unprecedented levels.  
Asa Hutchinson isn't trying to broaden Republican appeal.  How many people are thumbs up on mutilating children?  
 
He's trying to broaden their donor base.  This comes under my file heading "Republican Politician Scumfuckery" 

Posted by: Huck Follywood, registered independent at April 07, 2021 11:29 AM (Pj6he)

71 It's not even a "hill to die on", its actually being a genuine opposition party.  If you believe you have to concede on every issue your opponent demands in order to "broaden the party", you are effectively conceding that your party is unpopular and has lost the war of ideas.
The GOP does this every time, without even putting up any opposition.  Conceding because the opponent demands it is not what makes up a true opposition party.  Fundamentally, GOP pols don't like or agree with their voters, and see their role as shepherding their voters into conceding issues they believe in.

As much as I hate to say this, the chans are right that the floodgates are going to open at some point when people the progs have been slandering as nazis figure out some of the books the nazis were burning.  Things are going to get ugly.

The tranny mess is just another effort to produce a captive identity group and another entrant in the victimhood olympics, but it's a lot more evil than usual in that joining the group ruins these peoples lives and leaves them with nobody else to turn to.

I'm reminded of Danielle Bunten Berry one of the first "famous" trannies. He had been a successful game developer and then got the chop.

Some time later he realized getting the chop and the hormones does NOT make you a woman and there was no going back.

104 These so-called "conservatives" like Hutchison and Noem have shown that all they care about is power, not ideas, not policy.  They've picked "conservatism" as the vehicle they could ride to power, and played the part well.   BUT whenever an issue comes up that they think might be a threat to their personal power, they fold like a cheap lawn chair.   I'm finished with Hutchison forever, just like I'm finished with Noem.  They have no place in national politics as far as I'm concerned, not ever.

... so LN's future society continually voted smaller and smaller crimes (like running 6 red lights in 2 years) to be capital crimes. . . .
Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at April 07, 2021 11:44 AM (/XOcP)
Such things don't work well in practice (all offenses being capital crimes) because it changes the cost/benefit calculation on crime. It isn't usually conscious, but it does happen.

If you are willing to commit a capital crime, then it raises the stakes. Lesser crimes don't matter anymore. If you're looking to commit murder, it doesn't matter if you steal a gun, perform a carjacking and take hostages in the process. You can only be killed once. If you commit to a capital crime, any subordinate or related crimes are free. Making all crimes capital removes any rational benefit to being choosy with criminality. If you're going to commit any crime, you might as well commit a big one because the costs are the same across the board. It is an extreme form of perverse incentive.

No living being should be so fearful of a virus that they will not leave their home, won't attend the funeral of a beloved relative or any of a myriad of other reactions that are insane to say the least.

184 I went back and looked up Pepe's comment in the previous thread:  "197 I'm really fucked up, Horde. I'm running over 101 fever with Tylenol in my system."
One thing I have to say, because I went through this with my late father in the hospital, and I had to tell the nurses who were panicking about not being able to control his skyrocketing fever (at the time) - Tylenol is absolutely WORTHLESS when it comes to fevers!  It can help a little bit with minor problems, but plain old Aspirin will always be 10 x more effective than Tylenol.   Advil (ibuprofen) is a bit better, but still it's main use is for inflammation.   We could have a long discussion on why Pharma pushes Tylenol and always tries to make people frightened of Aspirin (probably the safest drug ever discovered) but I'll just say, that night my father was in the ER with a fever approaching 103 and no one knowing what they could do, it dropped back to 99 within an hour of me ranting and forcing the night staff to call up his doctor and go back to aspirin instead of the tylenol crap.  They weren't going to do it unless someone pitched a fit.

Yeah.  There has been.  People are being driven to the limits of what they can take, and for some, that means they snap.  Between the insanity of the shutdown, the fearmongering causing it, the blatantly fake election, the tyrannical freedom-crushing elites and establishment stomping on everyone they find insufficiently woke, the deliberate destruction of stability and normality, and the promotion of crazy, people feel like they've fallen down the rabbit hole.

Some deal with that very poorly.  Some get depressed, some get angry, some get stressed and have health problems... and some go nuts.  This is our future, being stomped on the face harder and harder every month by the left until people cannot take it any more. 
Most of them probably don't even know why they are so upset and confused and stressed.  They all feel it, though.  Even the ones that think they've won.

207 Legislation is never a simple document, even when restricted to a single issue, the wording is subjected to alteration to meld with other existing laws and other legal concerns, so it is never a straight up proposition.  Part of the roll of a good governor is to, essentially, proof read the legislation for errors or unintended consequences.   That is what Noem did in SD and is what happened in MO with Hutchinson.  Even when the legislation passed is done so by the same party as the governor, the governor is not a rubber stamp.  All the legislators got to have their input on the legislation and the governor is entitled to his or hers and remember, the devil is in the details.
In SD, Noem believed that the wording of the legislation would cause NCAA retaliation against collegiate women's athletics in the state, retaliation that would harm them more than what the legislation was trying to prevent.  That is known as an unintended consequence, where you wind up creating a greater hurt on those you intend to help.  Noem reworded the legislation, as state law allows the governor to do, but the legislature dug in it's heels.  Noem then issued an executive order that achieved the same affect, but worded in such a manner that it tied the hands of the NCAA.    This should have been viewed as a wise and judicious thing to happen.  Unfortunately, it was not.  We have been infested with a "my way or the highway" group of knee jerkers, who view anything not in lockstep with their thinking, to be nothing short of high treason.  Granted, this attitude was caused by a number of squish RINOs who repeatedly derailed good legislation in order to burnish their "maverick" reputation in the media.  But that does not excuse the attacks on governors who are legitimately trying to craft sound and fair law.  That's what the Democrats are for, after all.
So, was Hutchinson's veto reasonable?  Well, anytime legislation prohibits something, there is usually a "grandfather" clause that allows those caught having invested in the proscribed activity, to continue doing so, lest they be damaged for doing something in good faith that they believed was legal.  That what Hutchinson objected to, that there was no provision to "grandfather" those who had begun the process when prohibition takes affect.  There is no doubt that the transformation process is flawed and harmful to a minor, but there also is no doubt that being trapped midway in the process is even more harmful.  Hutchinson was being both sensible and compassionate, and for the knee jerkers to attack him for failing to march in lockstep, is neither.

If you're paranoid to begin with, it's simple to believe that "innocents" are plotting to destroy you, and it gets worse when the media and pols are telling you that racists and, of course, "nazis" are coming for you and yours any minute now. The media has been painting Americans, especially Trump supporters, as the second coming of the Third Reich for some time now. I suspect they wanted this reaction.

Exactly, its the kind of moral justifying you only do when you see no particular problem with what is being done.

I know for a fact that several of the long term commenters here are in financial situations where they *can't* just "get a new one". They are struggling to meet basic needs and new anything is simply out of the question.

I understand what you are saying. I do. I just don't think you can run the Internet like its 1995 because of some people's finances. As much sympathy as I have for them personally,  "nobody can have anything that not everyone can afford" is not a workable principle.

If the gonads have not been lopped off, the hormone treatments can be stopped and reversed. Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon

Not necessarily. 
This is a little out of my area of expertise, but my understanding is that puberty blockers given during the earlier stages of puberty, if continued for many months or a few years, cannot be reversed. That is to say, you can't turn puberty back on. I presume this is related to the ongoing maturation process within the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, where the regulation  of  pubertal hormones (and thus normal puberty)  resides.

United Airlines says it will train 5,000 pilots this decade, including taking on applicants with no flying experience, and plans for half of them to be women or people of color.

They later deleted that Twitter post and said they would accept qualified applicants of any gender/race. As AtC said, the lawyers must've called the media team.

Posted by:Alberta Oil Peonat April 07, 2021 12:16 PM (mzC7

To a great extent, but we do routinely neuter animals. The idea that people can change sex is absurd on it's face, and for medical people to propagate this nonsense is truly evil as it gives it a seal of approval. Dragging impressionable kids into it is the worst thing of all. Kids are often so eager for love and approval that if  single mom says "men are rotten and horrible" a little boy may fall for her shit and crave approval enough to say he's really a girl. The best plan is to remove the kids from this environment and cancel the parental rights.

The latest insanity is that they will no longer give preference to pilots who already have flight training, because most of them are White, and thus the policy is RAAAAACIST.

I had an irate voicemail from someone last week telling me to take her off the call list, and that she has never even been on the internet. Either my number was spoofed or this was a clever scammer wanting me to call back and apologize. 
I let it go as I saw no responsibility of "win" to be had here.

325 My cell phone's area code is from a state clear across the country, where I bought my phone 3 years ago shortly before moving. All of the daily spam/scam robo-calls I get are from that area code.
I know it was fking Wal-Mart that sold my info. I placed my first-ever home delivery order from Wal-Mart early last November and the daily annoyance robo-calls started about 5 days later. I hadn't given my number to anyone knew around that time. Turns out there's a box you have to UNclick (it's pre-clicked, but of course) to keep Wal-Mart from selling your number.
