Monday Open Thread – May 7th

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Progress report: the most important thing has now been completed. My internet connection is up and running properly. Long story so do not ask…..:). Only unwrapped a few things today because my hands are a little sore and I do not want to aggravate my back. Perhaps tomorrow I will manage to do quite a bit more so that I can get some more boxes out of the way.

      The exasperating part is how we can see the left’s long-term view of things as opposed to our side where we feel like everything will be cured in one or two elections. They take the view of the communists where they look out over 100 or even 1000 years. We look out about 2 weeks ahead. It seems to be somewhat of a crimp in your plans when those on your (our) side have to go out and work, while those on the other side have willing help from all those who seem to have a lot of free time on their hands.

I guess we just hope they’re always too distracted by the food poisoning they get in the OWS Kitchen Tent and the usual genital parasites and herpes. There are some advantages to working for a living, I suppose. πŸ˜‰

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    TEXAS BEER JOINT SUES LOCAL CHURCH OVER LIGHTNING STRIKE!
    (This should keep you chuckling for awhile)

    A bar called Drummond’s (in Mt Vernon, Texas) began construction on an
    expansion of their building, hoping to “grow” their business.

    In response, the local Southern Baptist Church started a campaign to
    block the bar from expanding – petitions, prayers, etc.

    About a week before the bar’s grand re-opening, a bolt of lightning
    struck the bar and burned it to the ground!

    Afterward, the church folks were rather smug – bragging about “the
    power of prayer”.

    The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the
    church… “Was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building,
    through direct actions or indirect means.”

    Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any
    connection to the building’s demise.

    The judge read carefully through the plaintiff’s complaint and the
    defendant’s reply.

    He then opened the hearing by saying:

    “I don’t know how I’m going to decide this, but it appears from the
    paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in
    the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not.”

    True story!!

    I heard this dhimm broad on the radio this morning – she rambled on about how someone on the prosecutor’s side was dressed “in a particular way” that was a distraction to her client.

    There are a million things wrong with this, but the one thing that struck me in particular is that here you have a liberal who is “slut shaming” another woman for the way she dresses. Isn’t that one of their biggest issues…the war on womyn? The hypocrisy is unreal. She needs to be called on this on the Twitter, FB etc…I wish I had time today but super swamped at work.

      Absolutely outstanding! And some of the Lucianne comments just warm the cockles of my heart:

      #27: This is prize winning writing reporting, the result of individual genius without a corruption controlled editor/boss like all of the mafia media. This is pure watch dog journalism of the highest quality. It’s an Everybody Must Read, not that long gem, and everybody must send this to everybody you know who still has a flicker of truth left in them from all the mafia media brainwash This genius article is another Breitbart-like, Lucianne-like, rallying point for truth. Bravo Lucianne for presenting it !

      #30: Conservative Treehouse has been doing investigative work in the Trayvon Martin scandal that in a normal realm would earn them a Pulitzer.
      Their jaw dropping expose should embarrass the shabby media .

      They have access to the same factual information. Everything on the site here is linked, and they could have it found themselves if they were looking for it. The Treehouse is not the source of any of this: the Treehouse links to the sources.

      They’ve got their story and they’re stickin’ with it. Don’t forget: a man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. Truth and light and factual information do not fit their storyline or the goals of their DOJ.

This is one of those times when I’d like to say, “I’m really better than that,” but obviously, I’m not. The Scripture that says “The anger of man does not work the righteousness of God” is especially applicable when we are confronted with raw evil. I’m talking to myself here–not to anyone else.

    From the article: (what could possibly go wrong???)

    The list of required knowledge for first responders gets longer all the time. Now firefighters are being alerted to potential danger during rescue procedures involving hybrid or electric vehicles…

    At a conference of in Las Vegas this weekend, the National Fire Protection Association provided a day of training for trainers β€” firefighters who will return home to share with their ranks practical knowledge about the cars.

    Safely disabling the the batteries tops the list. High-voltage batteries that operate the vehicle systems carry enough juice to kill or severely injure a rescuer who incorrectly cuts a cable. Students also spent time sorting out the varying features on hybrid and electric models, including airbag trigger mechanisms.

    Silent movement is another hazard for a rescuer who might believe a motionless car is off. The cars are silent when they’re in battery mode, and can begin to move forward when obstacles blocking their paths are removed. The engine in a hybrid model might unexpectedly kick on when the battery has drained…

    Got popcorn?
