Another Spare Heir


Daily Mail:

The royal baby’s here! Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, is ‘doing well’ after giving birth to her second child weighing 8lbs 3oz

The Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby girl with the new princess arriving at 8.34am today a week overdue.

Weighing 8lbs and 3oz, she was born just two-and-a-half hours after Kate arrived at the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, with the Duke of Cambridge.

Both Kate, 33, and her newborn daughter were said to have been ‘doing well’ when the news came shortly after 11am today. The baby, whose name is not yet known, will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess of Cambridge.

So little Georgie has a sister. They haven’t brought her out for the public to gawp at yet, but I feel quite comfortable in saying that Her Roysl Highness isn’t as cute as this little princess:

      Good, Cuz then I can ooh and aah over Lily repeatedly and not feel I’m missing big news or anything down below. . .

    Weird Dave:

    Nobody’s listening.

    Why is nobody listening? Well, first of all, our coldly logical arguments never get to them. The media cuts and edits and castigates to reinforce their relentlessly leftist point of view so that our arguments never get through. Secondly, many people don’t care about well reasoned logical arguments. We live in an age of instant gratification. Like it or not, it’s a Vine world out there. Finally, our side has been so demonized that many LIVs won’t even bother to listen to what we’re saying, dismissing us out of hand.

    So what’s the solution? The solution is “fuck off”.

    We have to stop granting the left, and especially the activist left, the SJW types, the courtesy of treating them as if they are legitimate. We need to tell them to fuck off. We need to stop debating and start dismissing. Most of what they are saying is so stupid and flimsy that it NEEDS the prop of our treating it seriously to lend it the mantle of legitimacy.

    Now obviously I’m not talking about treating serious policy or foreign affairs issues cavalierly. Of course adult subjects need to be treated in an adult manner. There is so much clutter and noise over stupid, inconsequential shit that we need to stop wasting our time responding to it. The entire point of most of this stuff is to keep us distracted and to maneuver us into a position where we can be cast as haters or villains.

    What kind of stuff am I talking about? Well, basically, anything that The Political Hat links from social media.

    “I’m a dragon-kin, I demand that you respect my draconic traditions!”

    No, you’re not. Fuck off.

    “Oh, your belly dancing is cultural appropriation !”

    Fuck off.

    “That’s your white privilege talking!”

    Fuck off, I have the same privilege as you do, I’m a free American.

    “You’re fat shaming!”

    Fuck off and eat a salad once in a while.

    “I can’t stand these micro aggression from you”

    How about a macro aggression? Fuck off.

    And so on. All of this stuff stems from three impulses:

    1) A desire to assume unearned moral superiority – I’m better than you
    2) A desire to assume unearned prominence – I’m more important than you
    3) A desire for attention – Look at me! Aren’t I special?

    Stuff like this is why I love AofSHQ

    • lyn says:

      Good advice. I love the person on Twitter who was sick of “riot shaming.” Rioters should be called domestic terrorists, and they should have to pay for everything they steal or destroy.

    • swanspirit says:

      I feel exactly the same way as Ace, especially after having a little self important troll who lives in a teeny town ( I mean teeny like 300 people) in WVA tell me; wait .. INFORM me, as to the nature of the city I was born and raised in; the people there , and how stupid I am if I have the nerve to disagree with him. Someone who cannot maintain a conversation above the level of a fourteen year old should just fuck off . Someone should rename their blog Buttcrack Juice, and fuck off.

    Her mom is a DILF

    • swanspirit says:

      I hope they name her Diana !

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Diana Elizabeth Windsor.

        • lyn says:

          I read that they were planning to name her Elizabeth. I hope it is Elizabeth Diana Windsor.

      • leslie says:

        Me too!. Diana anything or anything Diana… And that they call her Diana no matter where in the order of names it appears.

      • Constance says:

        That would be great. I loved watching Diana. For an uneducated young girl who was set up as a brood mare to Charles she conducted herself with dignity and did her best for her boys and many charities.

    • lyn says:

      From somewhere on the Internet: “Speculation about the new royal’s name has been frenetic, and all the top bets for the baby’s name have been for girls: Alice and Charlotte are the clear favorites, followed by Elizabeth, Victoria and Diana — all names with strong royal connections. Royal children are usually given several names — the baby’s brother was christened George Alexander Louis — so the princess’s name could incorporate more than one of those guesses.”

      She is a really beautiful baby.

    GoFundMe closed the fund for the Baltimore accused cops.
    Accused. They are doing themselves no favors by folding to pressure groups.
    Starting to rethink my views on boycotts. I once felt that they were fruitless but the far left is exerting pressure all the time. Don’t think like we do we will financially suffocate you.
    What if the larger % of population started to spend their money only with companies that espoused their beliefs? Advertise on MSNBC sorry I’ll drink Chock ful’o’nuts instead of Folgers.
    If I remember correctly a huge amount of pressure was put on advertisers for Glenn Beck when he was on FOX they said he was racist. He wasn’t just said things the didn’t agree with.
    Good for the goose good for the gander.

  7. swanspirit says:

    Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is a big phony. She is out among the demonstrators at a table purportedly serving “food” to people , A CNN reporter tried to ask her a few questions and she told the reporter that if she answered questions, the reporter , by taking her time, would be preventing people from getting food. And the tone in her voice wasn’t pleasant .

    The Mayor was handing out bags of something like Doritos. Because those people won’t get food if she doesn’t hand it to them personally. But she has time for a bazillion photo-ops of her “serving food”.

    • 1539days says:

      I blame the media. In the old days, uncooperative interview subjects were treated to unflattering media coverage. Now, the media is so biased they can’t conceive of going against their party. Why subject yourself to tricky questions when there are no consequences?

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Did MO give Ms Mayor a waiver from the let them eat dandelions and ragweed campaign?

  8. swanspirit says:

    Even worse than a phony Mayor, we have the media interviewing gang members as if they were heroes, because they have “called a truce” for the time being. O goody. When the truce is over they can get right back to their heroin selling, neighborhood destroying, drive by shooting, random raping ways. But the people who are responsible for Freddy Gray being the crack selling street corner hoodlum he was , and all of the Freddy Grays , in the first place ; they are heroes for calling a truce.

  9. Kathy says:

    Yes and yes–the media, especially CNN, is responsible for this crap.

    • mothy67 says:

      Sucks CNN ratings suck except for big news stories and then they triple. No one watches unless there is a tragedy and then they milk it for all its worth. People that don’t watch cable news tune into CNN for this shit.

      • leslie says:

        I have to admit I tune into CNN if I can’t find what I’m looking for on other news stations. I remember during the Haitian earthquake that they had to “news” on a loop and after an hour or 2 I’d begin seeing the same thing all over again.
        Heck, even Megyn Kelly had a video from Anderson Cooper on her show this past week.

      • 49erDweet says:

        It doesn’t take long for a “CNN” to learn this fact of economic life……and then start “manufacturing” tragedies.

        • Lulu says:

          It was always the station of war, national disasters, and mayhem. I still laugh when I think of skinny little Anderson Cooper getting blown around in a hurricane. Water blew up his nose and he was honking like a goose.

    Takes a deep breath…
    SO…. anyone watching the Kentucky Derby today? I am liking American Pharoah, but there are lots of good horses in the race ! Danzig Moon looks good.

  12. leslie says:

    My DIL has a cousin who is riding in the Derby today. I’ll have to find out who he is riding and let you know…………..

    • leslie says:

      I think the jockey is either Julien Leparoux riding Danzig Moon. or Florent Geroux riding Stanford. big difference between those 2 horses. But I can’t remember who she said her cousin is. The name was French sounding and those 2 are both French sounding. She is on a long bike ride today and I won’t be able to find out until later today. Either way, it is kinda exciting to think about it.

      • swanspirit says:

        That is so cool !!! I wanted to place a bet online but they want too much information.

        • cynic says:

          Went to the Derby years ago. We stayed at a County Inn, and they packed us a box lunch to take with us. We sat on the infield, and had hours to pour over the info on the races. Ended up not winning a single race.

          That trip was when I was introduced to Makers Mark, and toured the distillery. It was also my first time in having a mint julep – a fun time, and lots of good memories. (and the weather was perfect)

  13. Myiq2xu says:

    This is the kind of thing I find fascinating:

    During the Mayflower’s voyage, the Pilgrims’ main diet would have consisted primarily of a cracker-like biscuit (“hard tack”), salt pork, dried meats including cow tongue, various pickled foods, oatmeal and other cereal grains, and fish. The primary beverage for everyone, including children, was beer. The Pilgrims believed (and rightly so) that water was often contaminated and made people sick; the distillation process killed most parasites and bacteria. Wine may also have been drunk, as was aqua-vitae–a more potent alcohol. The occasional juice from a lemon was also taken to prevent scurvy.

    Once the Pilgrims had settled themselves in Plymouth, they slowly began to learn about other food sources. The bay was full of fish, although the Pilgrims had poorly equipped themselves for fishing. There were clams, mussels, and other shellfish that could be gathered, and the bay was also full of lobster. Waterfowl such as ducks and geese were hunted, as were wild turkeys and other birds, and even the occasional deer. The Pilgrims had also brought seeds with them to plant English vegetable and herb gardens, as well as larger crops such as barley, peas, and wheat. And while exploring Cape Cod, they discovered and “borrowed” large baskets full of Indian corn they had found buried in the ground on a hill they named Corn Hill. The Native Americans in the area buried their corn seed in large baskets to preserve it for the next year’s planting season.

    • DandyTIger says:

      It’s amazing to think of those really long journeys and then starting almost from scratch like they did. Not for the faint of heart.

      • Lulu says:

        By 1635 they were bringing livestock and yeoman farmers to take care of them. Most Puritans were townies and did not have a clue and were allergic to physical labor. My ancestors were yeoman farmers from Wales and not Puritans. They took off with the cows when they didn’t pay them.

    • Jadzia says:

      Aqua-vitae like the Swedish aquavit?

      • Lulu says:

        Yep. The English called most distilled spirits that including brandy. It wasn’t until the Dutch wars that the English soldiers picked up the taste for gin that they called a spirit by a specific name.

    • elliesmom says:

      If you didn’t catch this when it was on PBS, you might enjoy it if they ever play it again.

    • swanspirit says:

      This stuff is totally fascinating, I have even attempted meals made from old recipes. The details of how people lived brings them back to life.

  14. Jadzia says:

    I have a real LOLsobby asshole FB friend story to share with you all. Last week, after the first day or two of rioting, a friend of a friend, living in Chicago, posted a “let’s all be careful out there” story about how he narrowly avoided being attacked late at night on Sheffield Avenue by a couple of muggers who appeared to be working together. Apparently a cop car drove by at the crucial moment, allowing him to run away and hop in a cab that was also fortuitously passing by.

    What’s wrong with this story? Well, the dude waited three days to post it because he was AGONIZING about whether it would be inappropriate for him to express relief at not getting the shit beaten out of him because of the sudden appearance of the cops. Because he has The White Privilege and should be more sensitive to people in a city a thousand fucking miles away who are protesting against that city’s police force.

    Meanwhile, back at the Ranch in Baltimore, the mass insanity continues. You know, where gang members are heroes for calling a truce, the mayor has relinquished her power to Valjar . the DOJ and Rev Al, and the State’s Attorney can’t tell the difference between a rally speech and bringing charges. Where the police are prosecuted for doing their job ,for not doing their job ; blamed for poverty, crime ,racism, taxes, lack of jobs, homelessness, riots and anything else that can be heaped on the pile. Where the Dems will do and say anything, to keep the people from noticing the real cause of the problems.

    • 49erDweet says:

      If I lived in Baltimore and actually believed my elected officials were doing a great job at representing my interests, I would accept my fate without further complaint. Stupid is as stupid does.

  16. mothy67 says:

    Has sharpton’s nationalized police force gotten any traction? The thought of that is terrifying.

    • lyn says:

      Only sheeple would want a national police force. The politicians would control it.
