The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

It's getting frustrating putting collecting and posting the rant thread, and then having to yank it back into draft because it's overloading the temporary server. So my content is going to be pretty minimal until Pixy is able to resolve the underlying hardware issues.

I feel like I'm on dial up again. These 2400 baud modems sure are slow. If this gets any worB%^GGF&*KG%908t}7o5*OJo7=7jQ+;87Ntnu9#4 o&e8T8eMRdSOh(%$k#m@j!KJ)*HRF&*nh&^f%L{n DAMMIT WOMAN, HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU NOT TO PICK UP THE PHONE WHILE I'M ON THE COMPUTER!!!???

Now I'm going to have to start the download of that 100kb file ALL OVER again! AAARRGGHHH!! It'll take at least an hour!

Anyway...


I'm Old Enough To Remember When This Was A National Scandal:

For you younguns, the backstory here is that some reporter asked Nixon about the Charles Manson trial while it was in progress and he took the bait. Manson's lawyers used this newspaper as evidence in their mistrial request.

The request for a mistrial was denied.

Naturally, the chattering classes, inflamed as they were with NDS, went bonkers. But I will admit they had a point. Nixon should've resisted the urge to run his mouth and either responded "no comment" or restricted his remarks to something anodyne and as neutral as tap water, such as, for example, "I trust that the jury will weigh the evidence thoroughly and come to the right decision."

In contrast, I notice that the chattering classes of 2021 did not seem to have a problem with Joe Biden's very loud and very public pleading for a guilty verdict. Nor did they have any objection to unhinged lunatic Maxine Waters' frothing-at-the-mouth incitement to violence and ham-handed attempt at jury tampering. Be nice if we could get to a point where we could have demands for proper behavior and decency that would apply to everyone, not just Richard Nixon.

Donor Request

This came through on the AoSHQ mailing list:

My wife and I did IVF back in 2013 to conceive our second son.

Out of the original batch of embryos, there's still one left on ice which we never used. We were offered the choice between donating for medical research or simply keeping it in cold storage for the time being. We chose the latter.

The IVF clinic has recently increased their storage fees (by A LOT) so we decided to donate the embryo for implantation. We both figure it's the least bad option, and gives the child the best chance for life. The snag we've hit now is that they only accept embyro donations of at least two, and we only have one.

They've offered to assist in transferring the embryo to a donor, but we would have to find one ourselves.

As a side note, the facility is in Portland, OR, so we had already resigned ourselves to the thought that this child might be born into the hands of hippy retards.

But maybe now we can fix that.

Might anyone among the Moron Horde know a young(ish) conservative couple looking for an embryo donation?

Interested parties should send e-mail to harbqll circle-a hotmail dot com for further information.



AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to “Annie’s Stew” at 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.

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:

3/3 – FenelonSpoke 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 – FenelonSpoke 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.

4/12 – Slapweasel requests prayers for Jonathan the Bear, for his upcoming surgery, and for strength and recovery.

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.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo 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.

Monday Who Dis: I can't provide links to the photos in the last rant because Pixy took the temporary server offline, but, as you all know, Monday's male 'who dis' is the King, Elvis Presley himself. The lady is actress Anne Helm, most of whose career was spent doing guest roles on various TV shows. But she did appear in a few movies, including Follow That Dream, in which she played Elvis' love interest. Supposedly, Ms. Helm and Elvis had a thing going offscreen, too, for awhile. If the Hollywood rumors are true, that is.
