Thursday April 13th – 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 †

    News report today had Ryan putting off funding for the Wall. Do we need special authorized funding for the Wall?

      I want an answer on this too. Do we really need his opinion on this?

      Can’t we start a Go Fund Me to start the wall? Maybe seeing the public support will make these lazy loafers in congress see where we stand.

      When Congress comes back from 2-wk Easter vacay, they have 4 days to get another CR together before the last one is set to expire April 29. Now Demonrats are threatening to “shut down the government” I think that is the context that Ryno made that comment.

      More b.s. – do nothing – then hurry up, we are on a quick time limit. The same game congress has been playing for 8 years. It will be interesting to see how Trump handles it.

      Also May is limited on the congressional schedule too. One week every month, the House has what they call a week “constituent work week” where they are supposed to be in their local offices. Do you ever see them where you live, like having town halls etc?
      Not very often. I suspect that’s when most are having lunches/speeches with groups who might donate. Occasionally, some of mine actually have town halls. But, you should (with advanced schedule theoretically be able to have access)

      Then both the House and Senate are taking off a week for Memorial Day.

      I’ve heard of people falling in the concrete on some of these projects. Wonder what the chances are of this happening to Ryan? 👿

    Dear Heavenly Father, continue to keep Trump in the palm of your hand. Please protect he and his family from all harm. Please give him the wisdom to guide our great nation and surround him with others of like mind. In this I ask in the name of Yahshua, Jesus the Christ.

    Victory In Maryland, Sanctuary Bills Defeated In Senate:
    “Legislation that would have made Maryland a sanctuary state failed this session because of its lack of support among constituents and within the Maryland Senate. The Maryland Senate refused to advance House Bill 1362, which the House of Delegates passed in March to shield illegal aliens who commit crimes from immigration enforcement by prohibiting law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration officials. The Legislation would have also granted State and local government officials immunity from any harm caused to the residents as a result of their refusal to communicate immigration status information with federal officials.” …

    Verse of the Day

    “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:”
    Hebrews 12:28 (KJV)

    • BakoCarl says:

      God so loved the world that He gave His Son,
      To die for our sins, reconcile us to God.
      When we trust in Christ for salvation,
      God sees us as righteous, no longer flawed.

      By grace and faith we received this gift,
      No longer condemned, but with Christ forever,
      Granted His mercy, covered by His love,
      Held in His arms by bonds none can sever.

      Let us have grace to show our gratitude
      For this gift, for all eternity.
      To worship God in a way He approves,
      With reverence and respect, on bended knees.

      We can’t imagine the depth of our sin,
      But Christ paid the price – inconceivable cost.
      All to show God’s holy mercy and grace,
      And all done to save we who were lost.

      Can we, undeserving, do any less
      Than fall on our knees in thanks and prayer
      To worship the One, the only true God,
      Who sent His only Son, our sins to bear.

        You know what over last year or so I have really been blest by so many of the treehouse people I’m an older retired guy , I don’t know much about the net stuff but one thing I do know is there are some very wonderful good folks about. I have been learning not to cuss so much or be so quick to reject others. I’m very fortunate indeed to have found this site. Also in the past there were times when something I would say in an angry spirit had a way of disappearing so to speak. I think it was the mods as they are called and I’m very grateful for all those folks as well. I don’t claim to have arrived anywhere I’m just doing better and trying to be less offensive to others . My entire life’s work has been in the company of coarse men and so it follows that being civilized would take some time.

    With each election season I remind myself that I have not met anyone who was 100% right 100% of the time, nor anyone who was 100% wrong 100% of the time. That helps me stay calm.

    Am I the only one who has noticed that snowflakes and libtards aren’t engaging on Twitter? I lit up three or four today and they won’t respond with their usual insanity. Back in the old days (like, last year) my feed would be flooded. Why are they hiding?

    Regarding a vote earlier this week in Kansas, Breitbart has raised a minor concern regarding the energy of conservative voters for 2018.

    No complacency from me personally, and hopefully not from other Treepers or their friends and family.

    Not appropos of anything yet mentioned, just might warn a few…The other day I bought fuel and in doing so found the previous patron had put the nozzle away latched. I had about a second to realize what was the condition, as I pulled the nozzle to put it into the car and I hit the trigger to release. If I hadn’t done that, the pump would have spewed a lot of fuel into the air. Could have been an accident and merely a messy situation. It also could be a real bad prank or worse. I mentioned it to the clerk and he noted this has not been the first time happening.MAGA!

    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

    This is a great demonstration of what’s going on in California at a local LA immigration meeting with citizens regarding Sanctuary City status. The local city council was very surprised at the amount of Pro-Trump supporters that showed up and represented.
