Friday April 7th – Open Thread

Our 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 †

      On a fluke 17 years ago during a flight to Vegas, my taller half – who had been reading Don’s auto-biography – mentioned always wanting to see Don Rickles. On our way from the airport, low and behold, I noticed a billboard advertising a three-day special night club act – DON RICKLES!!!!!

      We got tickets, and will NEVER EVER forget the entire evening!

      Thank you, Don! Well done!

    Some ‘good morning’ music for my Treeper friends. There something about mornings in the deep south that’s very special. You sense a softness in the air and, if you’re in a quite place, a sense of peace and contentment that, whatever else is happening in your life, is somehow inviolate and unchanging. Finding one of these mornings is like coming across a pathway to halcyon days.

    This is why schools and universities currently favor illegal and unlawful immigrants. Very possibly their parents aren’t smart enough to know, just yet, what LOUSY, STINKING schools we have here.

      KU Senate Defines “Marginalized Student,” Funds Separate Government for Them
      6 Apr 2017

      “One of the sticking points along the way was the need to define exactly who a marginalized student was. This was no easy feat, but the Senate managed to pull it off.

      According to the ironically named Wellborn, “The bill defined marginalized students as students who need more resources to be academically successful as a result of their backgrounds.””

        “In their suit filed against Harvard, the Asian-Americans claimed that to gain admission Asian-American students must have SAT scores a stunning 450 points higher than African-American students.”

          The schools might as well nominate these A4 (Affirmative Action African American) students for the Nobel Prize and Democrat run for POTUS or at least Senator while they are at it. Give them the Full Monty of Reparations and Social Justice.

          In reality, their admissions policies are both discrimination and racist.

          It’s not doing the 4A students any favors when they are less qualified and less capable.

          If necessary, offer remedial work and tutoring BEFORE admissions – but make them earn their way just like the rest of applicants.

            Think about this… How many of these kids went to the same schools?How can it be justified that one race is expected to do 450 pts better than the other? Doesn’t it seem logical they rec’d the same educational opportunities?

            It’s Racist, Discriminatory and TOTALLY INSANE!

            In reality, this is ‘black privilege,’ and the Asian students who work their butts off to achieve such excellence are being discriminated against.

              So, let’s look at equal opportunity. In this formula, are they saying black people are inherently dumber than the rest, and therefore, need to propped up to be equal? Also, if you are a black student and you apply to college and the college essentially gives you a 450 point head start to “level the playing field,” at what point does that black student accept the fact that the college thinks they are naturally dumb and can’t make it on their own merit. If anything, it’s a slap in the face.

      I wonder if the secret is King Arthur’s flour. We had to go gluten-free and switched to the King Arthur pancakes. DELICIOUS. Better than any other pancake I’ve ever had.


  15. Wow. It looks like there has been another “WeaponiZed Vehicle Attack” today. A large truck was used to run over people in Stockholm Sweden, and at least 3 are dead.

    As yet there has been no motive named and Swedish authorities have not concluded this was an act of terror. Maybe some Muslim was just upset that he couldn’t get enough welfare money to afford condoms for his next date-rape?

    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
