Wednesday February 22nd – 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 †

    Um, I think they’re running out of things to protest at college; and even Congress….

    “New Enthusiasm for ‘Menstrual Equity,’ at College and in Congress”

    http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/new-enthusiasm-menstrual-equity-college-and-congress?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTldKa1pEbGhNVGRo

    FTA: “……To overcome the “stigma” attached to menstruation, Harvard University’s Undergraduate Council recently passed legislation allocating $1,000 to make tampons and other feminine hygiene products “more available” in freshman dorms, the Harvard Crimson reported on Tuesday.

    The male student behind the one-month pilot project, Arnav Agrawal ’20, told the Crimson the new tampon dispensers won’t be located in bathrooms: “We’re just going to provide them next to the condom dispensers that are formally in place in common rooms. So it has no relations with public bathrooms or in-suite bathrooms, it’s just going to be places where more people can access it.”

    NEXT, From Congress,…….. On Feb. 13, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-N.Y.) introduced the Menstrual Equity for All Act of 2017 (H.R. 972), which includes five provisions to help different populations of women and girls better access menstrual hygiene items.

    Meng’s legislation would:– Allow individuals to buy tampons and pads with pre-tax dollars they contribute to their flexible spending accounts. – — Provide a refundable tax credit to low-income individuals who regularly use menstrual hygiene products. – — Allow grant funds from the Emergency Food and Shelter Grant Program, which can be used by homeless assistance providers for essential household items, to be used for menstrual hygiene products.-
    — Require each state to provide menstrual hygiene products to female inmates and detainees, at no cost and on demand, as a condition of receiving funds from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program. – AND — Direct the Secretary of Labor to require employers with 100 or more employees to provide menstrual hygiene products to their employees free of charge.

    I will personally attempt to get this killed in Committee (If they ever go back to actual work!)

    THIS is the kind of crap we pay Congress for, and enable them to be full-time for!

      Where in the world do they get the idea that menstruation is “stigmatized”? How imbecilic. A hundred fifty years ago, maybe. But today? Totally laughable. But this seems to be a new theme for the feminist left. Remember Ashley Judd doing her screeching bit at the women’s march? Honestly, what will they come up with next?

    The awful sickness of the modern mind – In Sweden, the state has almost no will to prosecute refugee crimes and terrorism, but with avid determination prosecutes and harasses the last remaining homeschoolers in the country https://hslda.org/hs/international/Sweden/201702210.asp

    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
