Saturday March 18th – 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 †

      Thanks for posting that usnvet. I was heartened to see the younger Venezuelan people along with that more mature woman. They KNOW the difference, are living it now.

      As for our snowflakes, they’ve been sold “the dream” and have not done any homework.
      Every society who goes socialist, experiences the same thing.

          Yup. Sadly, it is that same argument of the illegal immigrating-refugees as they bully their way into America and pillage our resources.

          Their hope in escaping socialism and communism of their countries – is that once they are here they can stay … as long as they promise to vote for the socialists or communists.

            “For me, Caturday is a good mental break, if even for a few hours.” Exactly!
            That is why I started Cursday on Thursday. It seemed there were too many stressed, depressed comments. The opposition wants us stressed, depressed, and overwhelmed. That is also why I am so grateful for not only the cartoons, art, and music, but the many wonderful, thoughtful prayers on this site.
            I was thinking maybe Tuesday as bacon day, or everyday putting in a bacon comment, and having Tuesday as “other funny animal/pet day”. Then the de-stress fun would be sprinkled throughout the week.
            What do all you other Treepers think?
            Yes – having a cat as a mouser is good, but I can’t even go in a room they have been in, or be near a person that has them – my throat closes right up. 😦 But I get to enjoy the cute kittens here.

              “What do all you other Treepers think?”

              Since you asked, I think a dog day would be good for all the dog lovers. Like, dog day on Friday, Caturday, and then Sunday as worship day – or a day for worship and uplifting music, art, etc for the people who are less religious.

              On the other hand, maybe that’s overkill, and too much of a good thing becomes a bad thing. End of suggestions.

              “The opposition wants us stressed, depressed, and overwhelmed. ”

              They sure do, but the ones that get to me are a few “conservatives” here who are supposedly on the Trump Train, Nothing but pearl clutching, negativity, focusing on only the mistakes Trump makes, but never on the good things. No names will be mentioned, but I just want to SCREAM at them, “If you can’t stand the stress, then GET LOST CREEP. The adults will carry on, go sit in your high chair.”

              I don’t have a problem with honest criticism and concern about things that Trump is doing, and sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between honest concern and the demoralizing type concern. But when it’s the same few “conservative” people. always doing the same old pearl clutching, it gets old mighty fast. End of rant.

                Thursday is Cursday for Curs (dogs). There was a gap Caturday to Cursday that’s why I was thinking of Tuesday. I originally wanted the dog day on Tuesday or Wednesday, but the only dog breed/weekday match I could think of was Thursday/Cursday. Yes I don’t want it to be too much. That is why I thought originally 2x a week having 1 day for cats and 1 day for dogs. I figure if it’s too much people just won’t post that type of post, and if they need a laugh they will. It would be sort of self balancing. There are many beautiful prayers and music posted daily on this thread. I am sure readers would appreciate any you would like to add on any day.
                As far as “a few β€œconservatives” here who are supposedly on the Trump Train, Nothing but pearl clutching…” Let them go. Don’t react. If they are constantly ignored they will stop or leave. I believe constructive, rational, fact-based criticism is good – no matter who the politician is. There were also people here in the past that jumped all over ANY criticism, even CONSTRUCTIVE criticism of Trump, or even Romney in 2012. I lived in Massachusetts when Romney was Governor, and knew they had not done their due diligence, but they were fanatics. That caused some to leave the Treehouse apparently, which is sad. So it goes both ways. I think SOME people raise Trump to cult/perfection status. He is NOT perfect, and as president is open to all FAIR criticism. Now that there are hundreds, if not over 1,000 comments on a thread it is harder to get to know someone’s intent with so many new people commenting. I just ignore them unless they say something I can refute that is factually wrong, or they put something that is against commenting guidelines – then a couple of times I have called them out on it. There are wonderful moderators here doing a great job, but there are a LOT of comments.
                Now – back to shoveling that snow!
                Keep reading the Treehouse – it is a great site!

                  Yes, so true. There is a bit of cult or in some of his followers, who allow NO criticism at all. But maybe there is a need for a certain amount of fanatics to offset and combat the leftist fanatics. I consider myself part of his army, but not a member of his cult follower types. I’m one of his Red Hats. I know the man is only human, and we have to stay engaged because he cannot do it alone. I do refer to him as “God Emperor” on occasion, but I am just fooling around.

The fluttering music sheets disclose expressions taken directly from the cesspools of modern capitals, to be made the daily slang, the thoughtlessly hummed remarks of school boys and girls.”

      I was a Flight Attendant in the 60’s. Rod Serling was on our plane. It was an all nighter from SFO to JFK. He left the First class section and made himself comfortable in some of the last rows in Coach. Soon, a crowd of passengers were surrounding him at his seat. There he was, asking everyone which was their favorite episode of Twilight Zone. Then he would retell the story, as only he could, in that wonderful voice. What a most wonderful gentlemen he was !

Good comment that is much appreciated about Agenda 21. Many do not take the time to be informed about what really affects their lives, and some that know are overwhelmed by keeping their head above water (most people I know) or just refuse to do anything about it (one person I know).
            I really believe our side needs to overtake the progressives in their ability to organize, and act. It is harder for our side because the vast majority of us are working, and not in NGO or gov’t jobs.

      Your adventures in snow shoveling reminds me of this πŸ™‚
      Diary of a Snow Shoveler
      (H/T Jim Johnson, http://www.funny2.com/snow.htm )
      December 9: We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the whole world? Moving here was the best idea I’ve ever had. I shoveled snow for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again! What a perfect life.

      December 12: The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry, we’ll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we’ll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I’ll never want to see snow again. l don’t think that’s possible. Bob is such a nice man – I’m glad he’s our neighbor.

      December 14: Snow, lovely snow! 8″ last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. l didn’t realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I’ll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish l wouldn’t huff and puff so.

      December 15: 20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4×4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife’s car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that’s silly. We aren’t in Alaska, after all.

      December 16: Ice storm this morning. Fell on my butt on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very cruel.

      December 17: Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should’ve bought a wood stove, but won’t admit it to her. God I hate it when she’s right. I can’t believe I’m freezing to death in my own living room.

      December 20: Electricity’s back on, but had another 14″ of stupid snow last night. More shoveling. Took all day. That stupid snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they’re too busy playing hockey. I think they’re lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they’re out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they’re lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he’s lying.

      December 22: Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white stuff fell today, and it’s so cold it probably won’t melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to use the restroom. By the time I got undressed, went and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter; but he says he’s too busy. I think the jerk is lying.

      December 23: Only 2″ of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she, nuts? Why didn’t she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did, but I think she’s lying.

      December 24: 6″ today. Snow packed so hard by snowplow, l broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the jerk who drives that snowplow, I’ll drag him through the snow by his hair. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at about 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I’ve just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was busy watching for that stupid snowplow.

      December 25: Merry Christmas. 20 more inches of the !=3D@x@!x!x1 slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she’s an idiot. If I have to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” one more time, I’m going to kill her.

      December 26: Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She’s really getting on my nerves.

      December 27: Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze.

      December 28: Warmed up to above -50. Still snowed in. THAT WOMAN is driving me crazy!!!!!

      December 29: 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That’s the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

      December 30: Roof caved in. The snow plow driver is suing me for a million dollars. The wife went home to her mother. 9″ predicted.

      December 31: Set fire to what’s left of the house. No more shoveling.

      January 8: I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

        ROTFLMAO !!! TEARS COMING OUT MY EYES!!!!
        Too funny – so TRUE!
        All this shoveling I’m doing is because dear hubby was in hospital & I can not use our snow blower, so I hired a snowplow driver to plow. He left a mess and tons of compacted snow where he was not supposed to. So it’s shovel time due to the EVIL SNOW PLOW!
        Thanks so much for posting that. I’m copying it and sending it around.

        Wave, I laughed until I cried. Even we don’t have THAT much snow, and we do live in Alaska. DH just read it and didn’t laugh as much as I did. Too close to home for him. I’m not the one shoveling.

    Caturday is awesome – I totally agree with whoever said – it is calming after a week of ………
    Meantime – I am one of thousands who need an INTERVENTION!
    April the giraffe – to have her baby any moment now!!! Really. The event willllll happen – and we wait and wait and wait.
    Meantime again – watching (live) the stall happenings, the vet visits now at least twice a day. This from a week ago but I have seen April get a tad miffed at the exams and kick him, then kind of escorts him out of her stall! Funny! Unless your the vet of course!
    Also note, around 9pm EST is the last feeding of the day – there is a “routine” and it is most fun!

      And a few fun facts – baby will be born at about 150# and six feet tall. She/he will fall five feet at birth, Mama’s legs are 6′ long. Adult giraffe tongue about 21″ (seen at feedings – eeerk!) – baby will stand within about half an hour of birth and will run about ten hours later. Adult giraffe heart weighs 25#!

    Do any of the GA treepers here have any thoughts on the 4/18 special election for Price’s seat? Today I scratched the surface on the election (who is in it, checking out their issues pages) and have found a massive field. I did a quick google search for the election, and a majority of the hits seem like obvious gaslighting (of course: [DEM] Ossoff leading field; chance for the Dem resistance; referendum on [POTUS] Trump; etc, etc). I want to know if any treepers know anything, good or bad, into some of these candidates and who might have the best chance.

    This is my start to ending my political apathy, or at least ending my complete disinterest in candidates/elections (excepting of course my discovery of the Treehouse last year).

    Any insight will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    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
