Sunday Open Thread – March 1st

Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur 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 †

    Can anyone tell me why Frank Taffe has turned on George Zimmerman now that the DOJ has announced George is off the hook?[we all knew it] Maybe I missed it. Is the BGI paying him off? He seems to have a sketchy past. Thanks.

    It is time to break up the DHS and dump it. It is a waste of time and money, and the departments in it can be funded on their own. We were better off without it. FBI, Coast Guard, Border Patrol, can take care of themselves without some Grand Mufti cabinet goon standing over their shoulder.

      Ooooo…I like dood’s idea. In fact, this DHS was implemented after 9/11, by the 9/11 commission (what a fraudulent fiasco, but that’s another story) supposedly because of the inability of those in multiple agencies failure to talk to one another. (I call BS, it was intentional, but that’s also another story….Peter Lance has done a yeoman’s job of documenting all of the sordid details, written 3 books and has a searchable database at his website of all of his research, but again, that’s another story.)

      It makes it harder to defund/eliminate agencies and their budgets when you’ve got them all under a giant umbrella!

        from tex’s article: “To her credit, Gabbard seems to understand what she is up against, and is willing to put principle before politics ­ a rarity in today’s America.

        “I’m not naïve,” she told Fox News. “It could hurt me politically, but I don’t worry about it because that’s not what I care about. … Our national security and the future of our country is infinitely more important than partisan politics or my personal political future.”

        Maybe she needs a bit of our support. I’ll keep an eye on her. Wonder if she realizes that she is more of a “conservative” than a commie?!

    The US Constitution provides Congress with the power to shape foreign policy and to constrain presidential actions. For example, Congress stopped the US military involvement in Vietnam, Angola and Nicaragua; prevented the supply of AWACs to Iran in 1977; brought down the white regime in South Africa; is still refusing to ratify the 1999 comprehensive Test Ban Treaty; overhauled the US intelligence agencies; coerced Moscow to allow free emigration; forced President Obama to veto a February, 2011 UN Security Council condemnation of Israel; forced Obama on August 1, during the 2015 war in Gaza, to sign a $225mn appropriation for the acquisition of Iron Dome batteries; etc.

    Remember when EBOLA dominated the headlines for weeks & the 2 nurses from Dallas were hailed as heroes for volunteering to work in Eric Duncan’s unit? Nurse Pham was rallied as a hero & exchanged hugs w/Obama @ the WH, even Bently her dog got VIP treatment and media coverage. Nurse Pham is now suing her employer!

    ‘Experimental drugs and special care helped make Nina Pham Ebola free. But today she fears she may never escape the deadly disease.’

    Pham says she will file a lawsuit Monday in Dallas County against Texas Health Resources alleging that while she became the American face of the fight against the disease, the hospital’s lack of training and proper equipment and violations of her privacy made her “a symbol of corporate neglect — a casualty of a hospital system’s failure to prepare for a known and impending medical crisis.”

    I wonder if Nurse Pham approached a Civil Lawyer or if she was approached by an Attorney?

        Yes, how was it a “known and impending” crisis? This was the first case, or at least the first publicized case, so why would they be prepared for it. In addition, seems like CDC was calling the shots on protective gear and procedures, trying to minimize the appearance of danger. I wonder if powers-that-be want to put Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital out of business.

      I will go out on a limb and say that the taxpayers paid for her care and her dog’s care. Maybe the taxpayers should sue her because as a nurse she failed to educate herself on how to protect herself and her lack of education cost us money.

    Another stye in eye of Obama. The wandering Kurdistan oil tanker with one million barrels of crude oil is back in the news. After sitting in the Gulf of Mexico for months it has now delivered it’s oil to a customer – Israel. The tanker’s satellite transponder went dead off the Israeli coast on February 22. It has now reappeared empty in the port of Ceyhan.

    This was a good article. I didn’t realize supper has been added to the free meals. I knew about after school programs and have long known parents who put their kids into them just so they have that extra two or three hours without their kids. I’ve also known for over 20 years now that the majority of parents never sit down and eat dinner/supper with their kids. My kids’ friends always were shocked or amazed that we had dinner time almost every night and even on those nights when activities kept us away from our own dinner table we still had dinner together.
    I’ve also always been against pre-school, it wasn’t that long ago when Kindergarten was for half a day and those kids turned out fine the same as the kids who didn’t have kindergarten, which also wasn’t that far into the past. I’ve always felt it was a way to program them at a much younger age.
    I see everyday people who look to the state to provide for them. Women who expect medicaid or WIC to provide their breast pumps and even tylenol for their children.
    I blame the government for a lot but the truth is so many people willing to give their kids to the government so they don’t have to pay a babysitter or buy their own supplies for their children are why the government is able to continue giving away taxpayers money.

    Attorneys join forces to represent Zambrano family
    A press release from attorney Charles Herrmann discusses the agreement to join forces with attorney Benjamin Crump to represent the Zambrano family.

    Seattle attorney Charles Herrmann announced today that he and prominent civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump reached agreement to mutually represent the entire family of Antonio Zambrano-Montes, the Mexican man shot down by the Pasco police on February 10, 2015. Herrmann has been representing the widow and Crump has been representing the parents of the victim.

    Herrmann stated: “In a lengthy conversation with attorney Crump yesterday, I found him a warmhearted professional who cares deeply about the issues presented in this case. We had no trouble reaching agreement to share responsibility in handling the case.” Mr. Crump will return to Pasco late next week to meet with Herrmann and the Zambrano family to work out the details with each other and to secure the family’s approval.

    Each attorney brings different strengths to the team. Attorney Crump has vast civil rights experience in cases such as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, while Herrmann, a former Deputy Prosecutor himself, has been internationally recognized for handling literally hundreds wrongful deaths in numerous aviation disaster cases such as the Shoot Down of a Korean Air flight 007 by a Soviet MIG over Sakhalin Island in 1983 to currently the Asiana crash at San Francisco.

    “I think it fair to say that together, we will make a formidable legal team to prosecute the civil case for this unjustifiable killing of an unarmed man,” Herrmann concluded.
