The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

Dumb tweet from yesterday, commenting on an incident that was all over social media. Here's why the dumbness rocked the kohnometer:

1. The guy is not carrying an automatic weapon.
2. He is self-employed.
3. He had the right to defend his property because
   a. it was a gated community and therefore the street was private property
   b. mobs are unpredictable
   c. they were shouting threats at him

So in a sentence consisting of 12 words, Emm Ess Romano managed to make 3 errors which basically invalidated her tweet. 1 error for every 4 words. That's quite an achievement.

And this is ironic, because according to her bio, she's a journalist. So you'd think she'd be familiar with, you know, research, and fact-checking, and things of that nature.

Doesn't appear to be the case with Emm Ess Romano

I do not understand why, in any situation, the most aggressively ignorant, ill-informed and misinformed demographic always has to be journalists.



Heh. It appears that Emm Ess Romano has deleted her original tweet. But not to worry, the internet is forever:


romano 20200701.jpg

According to her bio, Emm Ess Romano has a crap ton of journalism experience: she's "[a] former Editor WaPo Live, Editor Politico Events, Senior Writer Politico, national staff Wash Post..." One would think she would know better than to broadcast to the entire world that she's joined the mob.

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com.


Prayer Requests:

5/26 - Heisenberg’s Uncertain Principal asks for prayers for his daughter and her husband, who had twins in April, and with the stress of no sleep, lockdowns, and job worries, it’s killing their relationship. He asks for prayers to help them get through.

5/26 - Aelfheld requests prayers for a co-worker whose house was destroyed by a tornado in Bowie, TX on 5/22/20. The co-worker and his wife came through the storm safely, but the house sustained significant damage.

6/3 - Clyde asks for prayers for his younger brother, who is a Chicago police officer on the south side of Chicago. Please pray for him, as well as all police officers, during this time of chaos to help them help keep the people of their cities safe as well as remain safe themselves.

6/3 - thathalfrican asks for prayers for his wife, who just had a miscarriage.

6/4 - PH requests for prayers for his mother and father. His mother went into a nursing home just before the Covid lockdown started, and the isolation she has endured has taken a terrible toll. They saw her last weekend through a “window visit” and she is just a shell of what she was. Now his dad is facing learning what a new normal for him will be without her.

6/24 - Elipse (… asks for prayers for his wife (and the rest of the family) after her 35 year-old son committed suicide.

6/30 - Annie’s Stew requests prayers for our country - that God’s will would be done, and that evil would be overcome.


Praise:

5/26 - Sock_rat_eez sends the wonderful news that his surgery has been scheduled for 6/11. He was afraid it would be delayed until late summer.


For Healing:

5/16- The Village Idiot’s Apprentice asks for prayers for Anna, from Ohio, as well as the other residents and staff of her Assisted Living home. She is 99 years old, and just tested positive for Covid-19, as well as many of the staff and residents of the facility. Patient #1 has already passed.
5/23 Update: Anna has taken a turn for the worse. He asks for prayers for her recovery, but if God has chosen to call her home, may her passage be peaceful and pain free.
6/10 Update: Anna was called Home to join her late husband, peacefully, with none of the typical respiratory ravages of the disease. She simply went to sleep.

5/16 - The Village Idiot’s Apprentice also asks for prayers for his Uncle Bill, who was hospitalized in Pennsylvania with possible a-fib.
5/23 Update: Bill is stable and at home now.

6/10 Update: Bill is doing well, after they shocked his heart into obedience.

5/19 - M needs prayers for his grandniece, Chloe, who was born with bad kidneys. She’s a year old now, her kidneys have been removed, and she is on daily dialysis and a feeding tube, to try and get her ready for transplant surgery. Please pray for health for her and strength for her parents. There have been a number of scares with fevers and seizures.

5/19 - CFO Mom has a request for prayers for her husband. He was unwell for a couple of weeks, and has been hospitalized since going to the ER Sunday evening. He has cellulitis, which may have gone to sepsis. He is on IV antibiotics, and now they have discovered he has an irregular heartbeat which is causing other risks and problems. He is also on a heparin drop to prevent blood clots. It’s very hard to not be able to visit and be with him to hear what the doctors have to say, or see and hear what is going on.

5/23 - The Village Idiot’s Apprentice asks for prayers for two more relatives diagnosed with Covid: one of whom is young and otherwise healthy, and another of whom is 89 and lives in a LT care facility.

5/26 - Ibguy would like to add his friend Dana B-S to the prayer list. She has immune system issues, and now has been diagnosed with Covid.

6/4 - PC requests prayers for a friend named Joanie who just had surgery for a serious rare ailment.

6/24 - Asheville Robert needs prayers for healing; he has been diagnosed with a tumor in his colon.

6/24 - NaughtyPine requests prayers for her sister-in-law, who had a stroke.


Job Issues:

In addition to the people who have been on the prayer list for some time, please add Brother Cavil who needs a better paying job that meets his skill set. He also needs “rough places made smooth”.

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.

Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after five weeks or so unless we receive an update.

Please remember the Prayer of St. Francis:
http://www.prayerguide.org.uk/stfrancis.htm

Keep calm and pray on!

Monday's Who Dis: You most likely recognizeLynn Collins and Taylor Kitsch from 2012's disappointing adaption of John Carter and maybe they should do z reboot and this time, do it right. But these two were also in the Marvel spin-off X-Men Origins: Wolverine . Also, I like movies where the old guys have to come in and save the day, which is why Battleship, another one of Taylor's films, is a very underrated and underappreciated movie. Most critics booed it, but for what it was, a science fiction action movie, it delivered the goods. Fight me.

Thanks for the rant, OM.

And why would she "know better?" Journalists are on the side of the mob. They are leftist agitators and propagandists. "Activists" is what I think they call themselves. This isn't unusual. It isn't dangerous. It isn't unexpected. It isn't surprising.

What would be surprising? If a woman with her resume came out in *defense* of people defending their property against the leftist mob. That would be surprising.

It's like Lady Gaga's meat dress she wore to some awards show. Everyone was talking about how "shocking" it was. But she's a pop star. *Nothing* would be shocking unless she dressed in something demure and professional. Your stock broker wearing a meat dress would be shocking, but not a pop star.

Interesting interview snippet.

There are some libertarians who swear Sanger was never quite the monster conservatives portray her as, and I think I see how this is a subject of debate.

She is all about the macro stuff. Society's sins.

And then she can't even bring herself to address the concept of sin on a micro level.

So I have no doubt there are words out there, of her saying nice things about black people, individuals. But yeah, she wanted them eugenicized. Big time.

82 Many years ago I realized leftists have (apparently) a death wish of some flavor or another. Not only at the nation state or macro level (open borders, "no nukes") but even right down to the granular personal level. It infects everything they say and do, and is one reason most reportage requires major forensics and reverse engineering to decipher.

Good writing is difficult, but it takes work to obfuscate and extra effort to bury key details or gloss over crucial, pertinent facts and the rest of it. The implied message to ordinary, peaceable citizens has long been a sort of "Just die quietly, and don't ask too many questions."

Now today, it is refreshing (sort of) to at least be able to acknowledge they don't give a flying $&@k about anybody but themselves, as we've long been asserting. You're literally on your own against roving mobs of lunatics and those ostensibly in charge of prosecuting criminals at local, state or federal levels have publicly and officially stated in no uncertain terms that the victims are the aggressors, and the perpetrators are the victims.

Anybody that votes for a leftist democrat is literally insane, or has a death wish. Now republicans may be complicit in some cases, or tacitly approve of this, at best too many have a detached disinterest (which is why America is in the pickle in the first place.)

What can't go on, won't, but it is really bizarre in the interim.

Posted by: Tom Servo at July 01, 2020 11:27 AM (Kpl3J)


St Louis is unique, in that the city does not belong to the county, and vice versa. And the geographical boundaries of the city are quite small.

So compared to other "cities," it's nothing, but if you look at the metro area, and compare it to other metro areas in the country, both in population and distribution of WHERE people live, it looks like a lot of other cities that have much larger city populations.

It still hovers around top 20 in terms of metro size.

So yeah, it's not a BIG city, but it's also not as small as those population numbers make it look.

96 Portland Antifa is all upset because a number of "journalists" were arrested at the riots last night. (The rioters tried to storm the offices of the police union.)

The "journalists" have several things in common - they are unabashedly pro-rioter; they frequently edit down their videos, so the videos start with the police acting aggressively, and fail to show the rioters' provocations that occurred a minute or two before the police started acting aggressively; and they are scrupulous in not showing the faces of the demonstrators, since showing faces would get them curb-stomped by Antifa.

One of the "journalists" was charged with two counts of felony assault of a police officer, after the cops recognized him. I assume that this is from an earlier encounter.

I have an interesting legal theory - "journalists" have no special rights at riots. "Legal observers" have no special rights at riots. "Street medics" have no special rights at riots.

There is not a class of people who get to ignore police orders to clear an area that other people have to comply with. Saying that you are a "journalist" for a shitty left-wing radio station that no one listens to does not give you rights that ordinary people don't have.

Her fixation on, as you call it (never seen it before, but the description makes some degree of sense), the "macro morality" is just a way to avoid acknowledging that what she stands for is abhorrent and evil.

I am not so sure about that - about the deathwish, I mean. They have a murderwish. They want to destroy everything that is not of the body so they rise to power. The reason that I don't think this is exactly a deathwish (it is in reality, of course, as any outside observer can identify) is that *they* don't see it that way. Each and every one of them thinks they will be the killer and never be killed. They all think they'll end up in charge or in the ruling party, handing down death sentences and never receiving one.

-Shitty little leprechaun Hannity claiming that he only wears a mask because he "Loves Grandma and Grandpa", directly implying that not wearing a mask means you hate the elderly.

-Mitch McConnell Tweeting that "their should be no stigma to wearing a mask" . ( Guess someone woke his ass up from his long nap - how about stigmas for people burning down businesses and churches , or lying about bounties on soldiers, or leaking classified info, Turtle Head?)
And now commenters here complaining about what people say about mask-wearers. (Who cares, snowflake? You do you.)

I'm not going to try to read her mind, and I don't have any interest in reading her words. She's dead. I don't care.

However, there are MANY people who make careers of doing just what she is talking about, that is, addressing macro issues.

Do they think about the consequences on individuals? A lot of them don't. Look at what is transpiring in our cities right now. Mayors and governors who can't or won't address what's happening ON the street, the real consequences of their decisions.

Do they not care about the 16 year old who was gunned down the other night?

122 another error? the man was not "brandishing", the woman was though. The man seemed to have it in a defensive posture, not pointing it at them (though with the threats I heard they were making, pointing at them was maybe necessary, idk).


The way the wife waved it about, even her husband had reason to worry. But maybe it is good for the mob to think the armed person is just "crazy" enough to use their weapon on the mob.


I didn't know about the gated community, but the house itself seemed to have a gate on their entrance that was opened and entered ... imo once the mob enters and starts aggressive chants, especially chants of "kill the rich" ... it is reasonable to hold lethal force, and if they don't heed warnings, to use lethal force.


But if mayors keep trying to arrest those that defend themselves and don't accept a beating/death by mob ... then more mobs will be encouraged. Currently, mobs are being encouraged/protected ... all those in the video that made threats should be arrested. but the exact law on "brandishing" on private property, idk.

Many years ago I realized leftists have (apparently) a death wish of
some flavor or another. Not only at the nation state or macro level
(open borders, "no nukes") but even right down to the granular personal
level. It infects everything they say and do, and is one reason most
reportage requires major forensics and reverse engineering to decipher.

I am not so sure about that - about the deathwish, I mean. They have
a murderwish. They want to destroy everything that is not of the body
so they rise to power. The reason that I don't think this is exactly a
deathwish (it is in reality, of course, as any outside observer can
identify) is that *they* don't see it that way. Each and every one of
them thinks they will be the killer and never be killed. They all think
they'll end up in charge or in the ruling party, handing down death
sentences and never receiving one.

No greater example than the "free trade" think tanks. Their theoretical position made some degree of sense about how asymmetrical/non-reciprocal free trade would be a net overall benefit, but it turns out they had some entirely false premises. They thought that, since only open societies ever became truly rich, that any truly rich society would become open - that is, the asymmetries would fade and essentially that China would become the US.

They were wrong. The basic thesis of "they get rich before we get dead" was wrong. This was becoming clear by the turn of the century, and was entirely obvious by 2010 or so.

Nevertheless, they persist. Some because they *want* that outcome of global totalitarianism, some because they won't let go of the theories that gave them modest fame and comfort. It works in the macro theoretical model, after all. We just need to stick with it.

I agree that they have no meaning in their lives , but I do not think they have a death wish. Many on the left engage in what used to be called deviant behavior, and are terrified to die. Instead, I think they have a compulsion to make the world into something entirely different so they don't feel bad about engaging in what many would call amoral, deviant behavior.


case in point: gay marriage, normalizing trannies, and soon, legal pedophilia.

172 deathwish/murderwish - both can exist in the same person, and often do.

One of the great insights of C. S. Lewis was that the more Evil and Satanic a person, or movement, or being was, the more focused on self destruction they, or it, would be. He found that to be the Great Weakness of Evil, that it was always focused on destruction, and the more pure it was the more focused it became on Self Destruction.

Which explains things like Jim Jones and the Jonestown Koolaid, or the Nazi's diverting resources to keep the death camps going even when those were needed to stop the advancing armies. Evil desires Destruction; Pure Evil is inexorably pulled into Self Destruction. (as well as the destruction of everything around it)

My daughter was very into horses when she was younger. We even had one. She had an instructor that was very experience. Older woman; been around horses all her life.

At a horse show one time, the instructor was passing by a horse being led in the opposite direction. As she always did, she put her hand on the horse up by his shoulder and ran it down the length of his body to let it know she was there. At the exact moment she was passing the 'end' of the horse, a bee or something stung the horse. Kicked her HARD in the side of the face. Had to have plastic surgery.

Had an excellent surgeon. 3 weeks later you could barely tell. But yeah it can certainly mess up your day!

After she had her first kid she gave an interview where she explained how she was raising her to be a proud American. Naturally, the uber-woke entertainment media/blogging mob attacked her for not being proud of her South American (?) roots, so she revised her thoughts and announced she would now be raising a proud Latia daughter.

Celebrities are likely naturally woke, but the entertainment/blogging community are major attackers and enforcers of wokeness, and they will mob any celebrity, demand apology if they dare step out of line even a little bit.

Just ask Taylor Swift how attempting to be apolitical goes. She was called a closet Nazi dreamgirl for years, so she finally unleashed her inner toxic feminist. No doubt she timed this to boost her sagging career, because why not, right? That accounts for at least some of what comes out of Hollywood.

246 I saw that St. Louis man on TuCa last night. Imagine this: you're just sitting down to dinner and suddenly there is a mob in front of your house and thugs are screaming about killing you, your spouse and your dog. You successfully defend your home against them (although the wife looks like she never held a gun in her hand before) and now you're famous, the left hates and ridicules your appearance and calls you racist and the corrupt DA in your town might prosecute you.

Yeah, the way they handled the guns was not good - but it worked. Are any of the critics capable of imagining what they themselves would do in the same situation? Should they have simply let themselves be killed and their home looted?

The good thing, I suppose, is that the couple is clearly able to afford very good lawyers, and since he is a lawyer himself, knows exactly who the good ones are. The Soros DA is going to pick a fight with someone with deep pockets, instead of crushing some poor schlub who doesn't have the money for lawyer's fees.

The bad thing is the mob might come back in force for this couple. They better spend more time at the range.

-FOX running wall to wall COVID 19 sign shop commercials with "Social Distancing Enforced" "No Mask, No Service" and other such tyrannical shit.


-Shitty little leprechaun Hannity claiming that he only wears a mask because he "Loves Grandma and Grandpa", directly implying that not wearing a mask means you hate the elderly.

-Mitch McConnell Tweeting that "their should be no stigma to wearing a mask" . ( Guess someone woke his ass up from his long nap - how about stigmas for people burning down businesses and churches , or lying about bounties on soldiers, or leaking classified info, Turtle Head?)
And now commenters here complaining about what people say about mask-wearers. (Who cares, snowflake? You do you.)


If I didn't think it was a psy-op before? I damn sure KNOW that it is now.

257 And MO is an open carry state so since he's on his own property, he can definitely carry a firearm around.


Unless they actually were pointing those firearms at people (I don't doubt whoever took that photo took the one that makes it seem as if the lady is pointing her hand gun at the people but that may not be the case) there's not much the AG or DA can do about it.

Of course the one that's in charge of the investigation is a Soros sponsored (I ain't seen no crime) attorney like what's her face in Chitcago and Jamie Smollett.

Plus according to witnesses, the crowd and some in the crowd were threatening them with bodily harm, death and the destruction of their property and had already busted a gate to get in.

MO being a good 2A state, you can assume someone means you harm if they break into your home or even just a place you are occupying and especially if they make threats.

Those two were actually being cool and collected. They were within their rights to take a couple shots at a few of those "protestors" but didn't.


An aside, I hear a lot about how the lady was sweeping her hubby and stuff but we can't be sure as the camera is only 2d so we can't tell exactly where she was lined up on.

Here in PA we're arguing with the pimpass philly Lawyer Wolf and his side show the fast boy/lady Health Sec. about their level of intrusion into the people's rights to carry and bear arms. And that therefore gun shops are an essential service in times of upheaval.

I'm hoping they can get an impeachment going on him and also get the Health Sec. kicked out for making the LTC's do like Cuomo did in NY and forced them to take covid infected patients back into the facility thus murdering 4-5000 or so older folks who had no choice or even knew what was going on.

That any of those Governors are still in office is a mark against the people of those states and their representatives.

As I just mentioned - I don't know if it's global but one of the photos of them having an AR leveled at them was pulled off of twatter. Just doesn't fit the narrative.

If you look at the satellite of their home, they're right on the main drag and that gate at the front corner of their lot. the "sidewalk" the creeps were on was actually a walkway cutting their front lawn in half. They could have walked on the street. It was obvious they were going after the first mansion they saw.

Whoever took the "over" on my bet that the first body would turn up the other Sunday apparently won, but now we need a new betting line on the total number of bodies to be found.

Do you think Mick and Keith are sitting around griping that Trump is using their music? No, they are out recording sons or buying priceless art. But some woke jackwagon called their publicist and challenged them to come out against Trump--and so, to appease the mob, they did.

Considering that Mick went to the London School of Economics, I would presume his economic principles align more closely to Trump's than the marxist mob.

279 I am reminded when I hear the stories about horses and the knowledge that at one time a guy was employed at every corner in the big cities for the one purpose of shoveling the horse shit up and out of the street.

That's our problem now: we don't have enough menial jobs to keep the left half of the bell curve employed.

This is an aspect of old time life people do not consider. Overall, horse poo isn't terrible smelling but you would get pretty tired of it being all over, were it not for the coal smoke and the rest of the crap in the air.

But think about it. Look around at how many places in your town, let alone big cities, are dedicated to parking. Thats how many stables and horse-related businesses were in town back then. Stables EVERYWHERE. Hitching posts yes, but also more long-term "parking" for your horse, and tack and bridle shops, kids holding your horse's reins, cleanup as mentioned, etc.

This is where a lot of old-time shows and movies miss the ball, how horse-centric things were back then, like they are car-centric now.

They were sitting down to dinner, alone, in their home (in the old days, they would have been sitting down to a dinner prepared by a cook and there would have been other servants around. They undoubtedly do have hired help, but not the 24/7 fleet of people that rich people once had around them all the time).

Even if I were extremely rich, I don't know that I would take the trouble to get all dolled up for a meal at home with my husband. If they had only known that in a few minutes, they would become famous and pictures of them would be seen and judged by millions around the globe, they might have given more thought to what they wore. But they didn't know that, did they?

Mick's mother was a big shot in the Tory Party, while Keith's family were players in the Socialist Party.

They are probably Left--but know that many of their fans aren't so they would be happy to stay out of this.

Evan Sayet explained why a lot of people do this stuff. Its not just peer pressure, its part of having a job. Actors come out and say retarded leftist stuff every so often not out of personal compulsion, but that's how you get work in the business. If they don't do it, they are presumed evil.

If they "make a bold and courageous stand" on something like plastic in the oceans or not beating your wife, that gives them cred and notice for jobs.

But for guys like the Stones, those old acts came up being ripped off by record companies to an outrageous degree. I think they are very zealous about ownership and getting paid.

297 According to her guide 'White Supremacy and Veganism', white soy boys have effectively ruined veganism for people of color: 'All too often, [mainstream veganism] is complicit in maintaining white supremacy in both our food system and the world at large'.

The guide goes on to explain 'some of the ways mainstream veganism continues to uphold white supremacy'. One such example is the reintroduction of food eaten by 'BIPOC' (black indigenous people of color) for centuries -- such as tofu, quinoa, chia, and pepitas -- as novel. Another example is the purchase of veggies that require 'violent' natural resource extraction in the southern hemisphere. A third is 'failing to speak' on the mistreatment of largely undocumented farmhands.

In order to build a veganism that is 'anti-racist, anti-imperialist, and anti-colonialist', the guide encourages white vegans to educate themselves on the ways 'our food systems perpetuate white supremacy'.

The Stones have to appease the mob, because I'm sure they're nervous about some of their more un-PC songs, like Brown Sugar and Some Girls, putting them on the cancel list.

Mick said in an interview in the early 70's that he didn't want to be black, he was proud of being white. If the Woke dig up that interview, Sir Mick will be in hot water.

Tofu is native to East Asian and Southeast Asian.

Quinoa originated in the Andean region of northwestern South America.

Chia is native to central and southern Mexico.

Pepitas, a pumpkin seed, is native to Mesoamerica.


I never knew that black indigenous people were indigenous to the Americas and Asia for centuries.

Perhaps, some of these were eaten by black slaves sent to Brazil and the Carribean, but that's hardly indigenous.
