Tuesday February 7th – Open Thread

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 †

      I think teachers unions need to be eliminated. I have seen NOTHING good come of them, only problems for parents, students, education itself, and the taxpayers, and that’s over 55 years.

      And along with them, eliminate the MANY layers of useless “Administrators” whose sudden demise would not be noticed.

      Seems like “Philip Dru, Administrator” is in their library, right alongside “Rules for Radicals”…..

        Education majors should be made to have a double major in an actual field before they are allowed in class rooms near our students – not all that women’s or race studies crap – but History, English, Math, Science, Languages, Civics/Government.

        Where is there music today? If I go into one more store and have “la,la,la, and “la,la,la” blasted in my ears, I just mat start wearing earplugs when I shop.

        The Arts sure have suffered as of late.

      Yes they are, they are worse IMO than the Demonrats , that’s why we call them the Uniparty.

        What I don’t understand is why the MSM — including FOX (of course they are no different than MSM) — is saying not one word about the two Republican defectors of the vote this morning. Those two should be tarred and feathered, and yet, no one is saying boo about the turncoats.

        Why? Because they are Uniparty? Most Republicans are Uniparty. Are they taking turns so no one in particular stands out?

    Schmuck is quite a piece of work. Speaking now. He’s started with DeVos, who will be voted on at noon EST, now, since they will be going for Session next, and he’s already beginning to spew his vile towards Sessions.

    Many months ago, someone posted a recipe for making homemade detergent with the ingredient of Washing Soda. I have been meaning to post this for a while and while making it today I remembered. Sharing in case helpful to someone.

    You don’t need to buy Washing Soda. I make it from Baking Soda. I buy the huge, orange bags of baking soda inexpensively from Costco and make the washing soda.

    So charming that the NFL revived lady gaga’s career so she’s getting lots more money. Everyone was so relieved she was on her ‘good’ behavior, but how much coincidence that her show strongly evoked Satan being cast to earth?

    Well John McLame is about to have a stroke in anger of Russia, and some guy McCain knew apparently in Russia who is ill. Why he is doing this when we have Senators remarking on Session.

    Nevermind, he left and no it’s back to Turbin-Durbin.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
