  1. I just recommended WRSA to a normie buddy who is just now beginning to see the light, and the first post he’s gonna see are rants from Aslop.

    Sigh.

    Not gonna be able to explain that one.

    Win some, lose some.

    1. WRSA is an acquired taste.

      Its editorial intent is to make people think, usually through the tactic of provocation via words and pix.

      The commentariat has its similar mission – provoke thinking, not auto-assent.

      – Words of counsel to the new reader

      1. LOL!

        And you choose to do this through… wait for it…. Aslop!?

        It’s almost as if the editorial intent is on par with that of the editorial board of the NYTimes.

        Your site; your prerogative.

        However, does not reflect well.

      1. 2 sites I have no intention to go to ever again no matter where the links are placed; first and foremost is Asslop the second is Braken . Too much drama and misinformation, as an example the tag team farce known as ” the great buffalo jump”, oh my God people are going to be killed by .gov sharpshooters stay home, write letters and stamp your feet just DON’T GO.

    2. n other words… Aesop is a fucking piece of shit soothsayer who is always wrong and screwed the pooch with the second amendment thing while bashing the lot of us for disagreeing with his position. He went way out of his way to say so. Bracken the sail boat captain too. But he’s a blogger so by God we have to keep his stupid wordy ass around because fucking bloggers, free speech and shit. That’s what ya tell your buddy.

      Fuck Aesop.

      All due respect to your blog and all CA.

  2. We get the tyranny because “we” don’t exist.

    There is a Left Wing, it is utterly committed to getting and keeping power, absolute power, totalitarian power and by all means necessary.

    They have no real opposition, they have a faux opposition called conservatives who exist as their Foil and conserve nothing – with the important exception of the 2d Amendment – but that is bluff so far and likely to remain so.

    The vast majority of people including the so called Right Wing (which does not exist in physical form) put their faith and their fates in our laws, institutions, elections and Constitution despite the clear facts that these are all captive or inoperative. They have nowhere else to turn, and put their faith and their fate in dead letters.

    We get the Left’s tyranny because they exist – and in any meaningful positive way an opposition does not.

    Online /= does not mean we exist. There is no Right Wing.

    But don’t forget to vote, and pay your NRA dues 😉

    1. +10
      Well said. The compliant brainwashed right is counting on myths and hot air to save them, neither of which will pan out.

    2. the entire problem is the cops, public servants, and religious zealots that actively try to destroy any type of cohesion

      just listen to the jeebus tards wailing away all day on WRSA as they gnash their teeth

      they are so damn delusional once they made the leap of “faith” in an imaginary god, they find it very easy to leap to other myths, fantasies, and outright bullshit delusions

      it’s the trad cucks who are responsible for the downfall of the Fusa

      LOL

      too funny

      meanwhile tfA-t is amused as they wring their hands in anguish and chase spirit gods trying desperately to cling to their childish version of reality

  3. “Why do we let banksters, big-tech and corporations rule our lives?!”

    Only a Communist would believe that the Job Creatorz ™ should not rule our lives.

    Socialists to the left of me, Oligarchs to right. Here I am, stuck in the middle . . .

  4. it’s a HOAX of EPIC proportion

    are some folks becoming sick and dying?

    absolutely BUT>>> they’ve been doing that since man crawled from the primordial soup of the oceans

    here’s another “acute” death from the terrifying and gruesomely deadly SARS NOvid-19

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/florida-man-20s-who-died-motorcycle-wreck-labeled-covid-19-death-state

    the cult of the face jock will go down in tfA-t story as undeniably- irrefutable proof of the heights of human stewpitediddy

    TO THE MOON!

    tfA-t grows more contemptous of murkins- daily

    1. it’s a HOAX of EPIC proportion

      Same as you, then.

      BTW, what ‘mountain pass’ were you kayaking through today?

      1. ROTFLMAO

        dude

        you have NEVER been correct in ANY of your outlandish accusations pertaining to the Great tfA-t

        the fact that you continue to wail, gnash teeth, and sling patently false and ludicrous claims regarding anything and everything you expouse

        ewe are a genuine FAILURE!

        please request your $ back from any for-profit learning institution you may have been a student of

      2. The mountain pass between ol purple hairs, legs. That young lady has zero respect for herself, much less the wise tee tard.

        Tee tard is as class-less as his actions. Use to think pussy was pussy, apparently I grew up. Couldn’t imaging pumping something with purple hair. Like fucking a bowl of jello!.

        Goooooooood morninggggggg teeee, my ol friend!.

  5. The JYT map is almost identical to the 2016 Electoral college map. What a coincidence.
    As for A-sip , more regurgitation of ‘official’ numbers. Sorry, going back out to the shop to take the other head off the F 250 motor.

  6. Maybe Mr. Raconteur can explain how a mask designed to stop particles to 300 microns {N-95} can filter out a virus that is 125 microns. It won’t. Just like social distancing inside of a building, ever heard of return air? You have it in your home and almost all commercial buildings.

      The Astounding Physics of N95 Masks

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAdanPfQdCA ( 6 minutes long)

      Skip the first 7 seconds, which is an uncharacteristic SJW / BLM intro. Disappointing that an otherwise excellent YouTube channel chose to join in the current virtue signalling madness. But the rest of the video does a good job of explaining how N-95 masks work so that even an idiot like me can understand.

      You know what else isn’t a perfect method of protection? Guns. But I don’t think anyone here would say “Since guns don’t protect you 100% of the time, they are worthless”. I think we’re at least smart enough to recognize that in spite of the risks, and even low probability of actually needing one , we’re better off with guns.

      Let’s face it: for most of us, losing 25 pounds will do more to prolong our life expectancy than carrying a gun will. But that’s not as cool as ogling what’s behind the counter at the local tactical shop.

      Given the amount of anti-intellectualism among our side – and dear God how I hate to admit that because it makes me sound like a libtard – some days I’m really surprised that there are not a lot more accidental shootings in this country.

    2. Or maybe you could do the tiniest bit of research on HEPA type filters and learn that particles bigger and small than 0.3 micrometers are easy, the focus is on 0.3 um because that’s center of a small distribution of sizes that’s hardest to stop. Going further, you could do a little more research and learn that COVID-19 viruses are initially expelled in rather large globules of water, mucus, etc.

      There’s a legitimate question about whether the viruses ever separate from those globules and each other in significant quantities to allow “airborne” spread like measles which has an insane R0, but going back to the N95 mask issue, that small size is covered.

      1. For all you panty pad wearers;
        So what if someone sneezes or spits moisture into the air, doesn’t it get in your eyes too? That’s absorbed by the body, just as thru the nose or mouth. Most people wearing cloth/paper masks have gaps around them almost constantly. Are you wearing a mask to protect yourself or everyone else from you? These filter arguments are completely moot and backwards.
        If you’re not wearing a full face gas mask you’re just posing and fooling yourself.
        On top of the fact the virus is a fraudulent hoax and less harmful than most flus.
        But keep convincing yourself you need another reason to fit in with the normies and be more compliant.

        1. So what if someone sneezes or spits moisture into the air, doesn’t it get in your eyes too?

          That’s what google are for. Of course, the real trick is doffing you PPE without contaminating yourself.

          Most people wearing cloth/paper masks have gaps around them almost constantly. Are you wearing a mask to protect yourself or everyone else from you?

          Moving the goalposts, but usefully. If you’re not wearing a N95 or better mask + goggles, you’re doing it to protect others, as surgeons have done for a long time. Which needs enough people are doing it, but it does seem to make a difference in both countries that have controlled COVID-19 with measures including universal mask wearing, and non-events in the US where mask wearing COVID-19 positive people in workplaces have failed to infect others.

          On top of the fact the virus is a fraudulent hoax and less harmful than most flus.

          Now that COVID-19 has killed more people in the US than any pandemic since the 1918-9 Spanish Flu, an underestimate based on all cause deaths this year vs. previous ones, you’re demonstrating you’re a genocidal sociopath. One of the reasons we’re handling this so badly, and that the nation’s Right has demonstrated they’re almost as bad as the Left, and every bit as bad morally.

          1. I’m only speaking for myself so:
            My main problem with all this Woo Hoo Flu is the so-called facts change to whatever they want us to believe at any given time. Masks don’t work don’t use them, now we’ll lock you up if you don’t is just one of dozens of examples.
            The so called experts that we send hundreds of millions of dollars to yearly, WHO, has either lied or been totally incompetent with it’s ” facts ” . Wally World, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Target all good to shop at but shut down small businesses because ?????? Payoffs maybe, of course it would be labeled ” campaign contributions “……… Or my favorite riots don’t spread the virus but sitting in a restaurant does. How about the newest bullshit, die in a motorcycle accident and boom another Woo Hoo Flu fatality.
            You want me to buy something your selling it’s best if you don’t start with a lie. The powers that be should have just come out and said Hey this is new, we don’t have all the answers but we’re working on it, please be patient while we work together on answers. The majority of reasonable people can understand that and will understand what was assumed facts will change as we learn more about the virus. At this point there’s no reason for me to believe anything they claim to be true.

          2. What about the flu of 2017? 3 times as many people died, but no panic? No loss of jobs. No loss of what little freedom we have. Not denial, just perspective.

    3. Viruses are always bonded to something much larger than they are. Start with that.

  7. Aesop isn’t a bad guy or anything, and he and I are both ER nurses and I always agree with his medical posts. But I’ve taken RR off my daily reading list. I got quite bored of the constant “I’m brilliant and everyone else is an idiot” posts that served mainly only to build his reputation as a wordsmith of insults. After a while that same style day in and day out gets boring to read. I don’t have time to read a lot of wordy filler that is nothing but creatively worded jabs at someone.

    I don’t know about the entries CA just put up. Haven’t read those.

    1. I had the same reaction to his posts denouncing the Richmond rally and stopped reading him for a while at that time.

      With time and a cooler head, I’m willing to admit he had a point. I still think the rally had to be done and contributed benefits other than those stated to be the intended ones, and that the risk/reward balance was strongly in favor of doing it, even before the outcome was known.

      His criticisms are definitely worth taking into account for the future, and not just for rallies, but as a way of thinking about such situations. I take that as a test for myself: can I disentangle myself from any emotional connection to what he’s attacking and read past the emoting to the substance of what he’s saying, and get the value out of that.

      Maybe it would be better if I didn’t have to do that. Also, I’d like a pony.

  8. Why is it ok for each of us to have a say, an opinion, yet Aesop can’t. Look in the mirror what’s looking back at you is the hypocrite in each of US!.

    Many days I don’t like what I see. Tee that’s not a reason to quit brushing your teeth!, assuming you have teeth, not dentures, you put in polident nightly.

    1. ALL (survivors)would benefit immensely by reading and following tfA-t’s writings

      “tfA-tstory” will be the most prized book ever to grace the shelves of literary scholars

      it will be required reading in the new more better tfA-t education system

      little children will dance and sing songs of tfA-t’s accomplishments

      women will pledge their fertile bodies to produce genuine super heroes

      men shall kneel before him and receive tfA-t’s blessings of success and prosperity

      tfA-t will be remembered by all as the savior of humankind for the rest of eternity

      come pay tribute to tfA-t

      it is your destiny

    2. Dirt, my opinion is mine, you may believe different, if you disagree we can discuss our differences we may not ever agree but we can walk away without cursing or demeaning each other, all the good blog hosts follow a similar experience. …Asslop does not / will not accept that there are different ways to see things, he is a!ways right about everything in his mind. I have enough brainwashed dumbasses in real life to argue with so there’s no reason to go to Asslop for it.

  9. Simple ! There are several medical professionals out there offering a “reward” from $5000 to as much as $50,000 to anyone that provide evidence of the existence of C-19……no one has claimed it now for several months……. A-sop could make a fast buck………right ?

    1. How might one provide proof without someone simply claiming that proof is faked? Like someone asking for photographic evidence of the existence of something, every photo will be called a forgery. So every lab result will be called fake. Every expert testifying to it’s proof will be called an actor.

      Proof doesn’t matter. Those who believe it never stop believing it, those who don’t never will start.

    2. MRapp, honestly I’m not following anything China bug related. Opinions are like ass holes, we all have one.

      If your accousal is that Aesops reaping dollars for his opinion, I’d rather it be our side then theirs. But then I think your wayyyyy off base.

      Recognize the majority here,,,,,are alpha dogs, want opinions to matter, to make sense of nonsense, often.

      That I see it different then you, is hardly a slight. I value most opinions here, find yours to always be well thought out.

    3. Cook County Medical Examiner (Illinois) lists those deaths as with Covid, not because of Covid.

    4. Cook County Medical Examiner (Illinois) clumps all deaths from Covid-19, Influenza and Pneumonia all together. According to their website, they seem to be unable to accurately determine which of these actually caused the death.
