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 †

      Methinks the incoming administration’s celebrations were sandbagged by the D.C. PD ! A lot – if not most given the ample advance warning – of the conflicts could have been defused or averted by timely police intervention . There’s multiple reports of D.C. PD watching rioters physically assault individuals/Trump supporters causing injuries without intervention.

      • uhhh, ya mean Trump detractors causing injuries… Trump supporters did not do harm, but THEY were harmed. Even Alex Jones interviewed a woman who was walking WITH A CANE going to the celebrations and was a Trump supporter was knocked down, punched in the face and kicked in the chest and she stated the “Police saw it and turned their backs on her”… So I am not sure what you meant there-supporters causing injury, other than a “for Trump Biker unclogging a check point” and the protesters stating the whole world is watching, yeah they blocked a check point taking AWAY the rights of Trump supporters for egress, a path to get through.. And yeah I think a “Stand down order” was given to the police which all of a sudden changed After trump TOOK THE OATH OF OFFICE, AND after police WERE INJURED AND SAW THAT THE PROTESTERS WERE MORE AGAINST THE police THAN THEY WERE AGAINST trump SUPPORTERS, that IS WHEN THE TIDE FINALLY TURNED AND THE POLICE DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT

      I live less than twenty miles from the areas mentioned. Totally unaware of it until I saw this. My wife works about a quarter mile from Kane Hall, but was fortunately home with a cold today. Some pretty serious stupid there, and to think I was commenting earlier to her that I thought the trouble was in DC only.
      Sigh. I was going to sell off some armaments now that President Trump is in. I guess not after all…if these silly punks want a dust up, if they really want to pay for illegals to stay here, I guess it’s going to get serious and come to real fighting sooner or later.
      And to tell the truth, I am so angry at this stuff, their gullibility and their willingness to project their own fascism onto the rest of us, who just want our own country and to not have to pay taxes for illegal aliens and the rest of it then I’m ready for a fight.
      ‘Anti-fascist’, my ass. They obviously don’t recognize fascism when it stares back at them in the mirror. And the cops telling people to remove their MAGA hats…how about telling the little junior fascists they have a right to wear them, and Milo and the Young Republicans have the right to gather peacefully?
      Same crap, different day. I’m so sick and tired of it I am beginning to think it’s really time to water the Tree of Liberty…liberally.
      They seem to be blind to the fact that if it comes to a bloodletting, 90% of the country is ours. And they don’t have the witch in the White House so she can pat them on their pointy little heads and reward them for this crap like zero has done for the last eight years. It’s time for it to STOP.
      Sorry about the rant, but this is close to home for me, and threatens to ruin a great day. I hope DJT wades into them bigly and turns Mattis, Kelly and the rest loose on these stupid, seditious, spoiled little shits.
      I have not seen anything else about the shooting, what it was over specifically and so forth.

      Re: Shooting in Seattle…Am following local Kiro 7 (Fake) news concerning shooting of a protester and a Periscope report from Mike Cernovich. KIRO 7’s write up absolutely trashed Milo. From Mike’s Periscope report, one protester( rioter) shot another. At this point KIRO 7 says the person shot is in serious condition. There were 2 groups of protesters. One group had determined to shut down Milo’so event. (The Young Republicans invited Milo for an event). A second group of protesters were roaming around (per/KRO7) ending up at the college where Milo was. At one point, Milo, the guests who came to the event, and police were basically trapped in the building, having been surrounded. (per/Cernovich) No one in the building was harmed. (KIRO7) suddenly said, police are in “riot gear.” More later…..

The p3d0philes want those rights too and are constantly lobbying various legislatures to lower the age of consent in the various states. BUT, BY FAR the most odious/obscene/atrocious lobbying is done by those who are for ‘children’s s3xual rights’.

  26. I made an important decision yesterday. I’m going to sell my house and move into a new townhouse with my mom. She’s not getting any younger and I feel it will be good for the two of us to not be alone. Both my mom and I have some concerns about this plan. My worry is will she use me, what I mean by that is when people are around her she likes to act very needy. I’m not saying there aren’t times that she does need help, but not all the time. So I pray that her few years of living alone after my dad passed away has given her a good amount of independence.

    What my mom is worried about is the fact that I’m just 51 years old and could find a new guy. I reassured her that I can’t imagine myself actively looking for a new man. And that if one does come along that that man would respect and understand why my mom and I are living together and wouldn’t have me move away from her.

    Our biggest challenge will be bringing our cats together. Yes Caturday reminded me of this. My mom has two young cats who will turn 4 this year. And I have three that range from 8, 10 and 11 years old this year. Yes my mom and I will be the crazy cat ladies, but I don’t plan on us getting any more cats. I have some ideas of how to bring them together in a very stress free way. But any advice on this would be very helpful.

    I would also love some prayers for this additional change in my life.

      An old trick for the cats is to separate them for a good period of time with a door between them so that they can become accustomed. If there’s a crack under the door, that’s even better.

        Karen, just a word of advise from an ‘old lady’. Why move in, why not next door or across the hall? I’m now pushing 80, and not long ago moved into my oldest son’s “mother-in-law” type apartment across the hall from his house. He checks on me occasionally, and we never just walk into each others space. Seems to be working well for us after about 4 years. My DH passed in 2004, so it has been longer for me than you. The best advise I ever got was MAKE NO CHANGES FOR THE FIRST YEAR. Worked for me. Hope your life makes a great recovery, hard as it is, it will come.

      My prayers have been with you and although I don’t know ‘exactly’ how you’re feeling, I want you to know that I’ve been through similar experiences with family members, twice.

      Not to say your family or friends would subject you to what I endured – just a ‘word-up’.

      The biggest burden I encountered through these experiences were with other/extended family members and their attempts to run or manipulate our lives. They tried to get control of our Social Security and pension money – since we were elderly and disabled, we NEEDED someone to manage our money.

      There were insinuations if not attempts for us to sell everything and move into a retirement community, after we split the proceeds of our estates with them (I had to deal with nearly 7 years of inspection-visits from Adult Protective Services because of these ‘insinuations’). One family member moved-in (huge mistake) to help out with things when in fact, they were merely freeloaders and only wanted to help-themselves. They never helped mow our small lawn, did any household chores, or cleaned up after themselves. It took 6 months to evict them — after they stole money and other possessions from us.

      My two family members eventually passed away. And often times I dared ask the Lord why did we have to go through all that misery. The answer came soon after, since I was able to help dozens of other Seniors and Disabled Veterans resist and resolve “elder abuse” issues.

      I hope and pray for you, your mother and your kitty cat family – that everything will work out well. With God’s guidance, you and your mother will be able to decide what’s best for your household.

    Jan 9, Obama’s HUD announces reduction of FHA mortgage insurance (for new loans). Jan 20, HUD suspends that reduction (pending review?). Jan 20 lib media announces Trump reversing mortgage insurance reduction.
    https://mobile.twitter.com/CNBC/status/822510744998658050
    People (being totally ignorant) think this affects existing loans (“homeowners struggling to make their payment”) or that it benefits “big banks”. This reversal (HUD mortgagee letter ML 17-07) – if really done by Trump/Carson – is a PR “own goal”. Obama set a trap and Trump stepped into it. Carson needs to clarify ASAP that they’ve only suspended the reduction in cost of FHA mortgage insurance until they’re assured that it won’t hurt HUD or imperil the FHA loan program.

      Saw this story on our local news last night, framed as “First move Donald Trump makes as President is to raise mortgage rates for low income families, causing their payments to jump by $29 per month.”

      Totally dishonest report, mentioning nothing about the billions that the taxpayers have had to pour into the FHA system to bail out banks on loans that were defaulted on and how this is simply a reinstatement of a mortgage insurance payment to cover those costs…no wonder the liberals hate Republicans and no wonder conservatives hate the media! Grrrr!

      Ironic that they accuse us of killing, while they blindly support the death machine of institutionalized abortion. I’ve said to a number of women “Sure, you can kill a fetus, but it’s wrong to kill a baby. Do you know the difference?” At that point you get a look that tells you in no uncertain terms that they do NOT know the difference, and that their brains are in massive “protect” mode, as in protect the institution, else everything they believe in will collapse.

        It is somewhat disheartening to see they have such a massive turnout. Just knowing there are that many misinformed women is depressing. I also saw a banner carried by the Sisters of St. Joseph (my hs teachers) proclaiming they are for immigrants and refugees. Apparently they have no problem marching in solidarity with women who have no problem with the killing of unborn babies.

They draw crowds, many of which aren’t really “down for the struggle” but are star-struck. Trust me, we did the same with Jane Fonda in her youthful endeavors for the Left.

    Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris – Done with Bonaparte

    Lyrics
    We’ve paid in hell since Moscow burned
    As Cossacks tear us piece by piece
    Our dead are strewn a hundred leagues
    Though death would be a sweet release
    And our grande armee is dressed in rags
    A frozen starving beggar band
    Like rats we steal each other’s scraps
    Fall to fighting hand to hand
    Save my soul from evil, Lord
    And heal this soldier’s heart
    I’ll trust in thee to keep me, Lord
    I’m done with Bonaparte
    What dreams he made for us to dream
    Spanish skies, Egyptian sands
    The world was ours, we marched upon
    Our little Corporal’s command
    And I lost an eye at Austerlitz
    The sabre slash yet gives me pain
    My one true love awaits me still
    The flower of the aquitaine
    Save my soul from evil, Lord
    And heal this soldier’s heart
    I’ll trust in thee to keep me, Lord
    I’m done with Bonaparte
    I pray for her who prays for me
    A safe return to my belle France
    We prayed these wars would end all wars
    In war we know is no romance
    And I pray our child will never see
    A little Corporal again
    Point toward a foreign shore
    Captivate the hearts of men
    Save my soul from evil, Lord
    And heal this soldier’s heart
    I’ll trust in thee to keep me, Lord
    I’m done with Bonaparte

    I’m posting this in the open thread because, I’m not really discussing politics, and this is where the music seems to get posted.

    Comparison of audio for the National Anthem sung by Jackie Evancho.

    This is similar to the version that I heard, that was streamed by Fox, Phoenix 10, and similar to all other feeds I sampled.

    This version was recently posted, and it does seem to sound much better to my ears.
    Was sound mixing done to improve it or was there something wrong with the feed going to the main audience and television? I am by far, no audio expert.
    around 37 seconds sounds like speaker echo or reverb. Played around with electric guitar in 80’s (was bad) and remember reverb having similar effect.
