Wednesday May 31st – 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 †

    Like “LA”, “SAMPA” is a term Brazilians often use for the city of Sao Paulo. Caetano Veloso wrote a famous song with that title which celebrates the city. A number of years ago production crew teamed up with guitarist and singer Joao Gilberto to use the song to make a beautiful musical documentary about Sao Paulo. In film and video making music is usually “cut to the film”. Another way of doing this, however “cut the film to the music”. As with “SAMPA” this gives an entirely different esthetic sense to the video. Enjoy.

    Rob Bonta Wanted To Legalize Communists In California Government – Has Maoist Family Background:
    – “In May, anti-communist California State Assemblywoman Janet Nguyen (R-Santa Ana) pushed back hard against Assembly colleague San Francisco Democrat Rob Bonta’s Assembly Bill 22.
    – Bonta’s Bill was intended to amend an existing statue for removing a public employee who “is knowingly a member of the Communist Party,” or a member of an organization that “advocates the overthrow of the Government of the United States or any State by force or violence.
    – Bill 22 would have allowed communists to work legally in the California government.” …

Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and a bi-partisan House “Gang,” both offer the “roadmap to citizenship” originally conceived and carefully developed by members of the Communist Party USA working within the Democratic Party and the radical left activist network for the purpose of using amnestied illegals to build a “permanent progressive majority.” … …

      Good Grief, navy – California won’t need an earthquake to awaken the people – because the Dims there have fully adopted the Marxist/Socialist/Communist Agenda – they are going bankrupt supporting this evil agenda – the federal government won’t bail them out – truly, this is the work of the enemy within – Thank you for posting!

    “Lone Survivor” Ending

    All those beautiful young men gone…

    In the comment section a man named Joseph Daly made this very apt comment:

    “You may not agree with why we’re at war. That’s understandable. But please, PLEASE understand and appreciate what these men have fallen for. Why THEY chose to fight for you. Why THEY were willing to die for you.

    “I can’t believe some of the disrespectful comments coming from Americans on this comment thread. It’s the most disappointing thing I’ve laid my eyes on in my life. Sheer disappointment.
    To all you seals, all you soldiers, marines, airmen—All military personnel. You are respected. You are honored, and those lives lost will ALWAYS be remembered. I wish I could still be flying, airdropping your weapons, your food. I wish I could still be contributing to your work.

    “To all my brothers and sisters still in arms…thank you.”

    Irish Blessing

    May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow.
    May the soft winds freshen your spirit.
    May the sunshine brighten your heart
    May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you.
    And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.

      Joy in the Lord

      Some Christians are so serious;
      That’s not the way it’s meant to be.
      Our lives should be filled with joy,
      As we walk with God in humility.

      Christians should be gentle and kind,
      Living lives filled with hope, not fear,
      Praying to God with heartfelt thanks,
      Knowing that He is always near.

      Let joy run free in all your days
      And God will give you His peace.
      Acknowledge Him in all you do
      And His blessings will never cease.

    ‘For this we have been called satanic, crazy and plenty more, but we couldn’t care less that’s just their opinions. ‘I am never bothered by what people have to say, they will either love or hate us, we don’t judge anybody so I don’t understand why they judge us.’ The reality TV show will follow the human dolls trying to carve careers away from the world of body alteration and their extreme looks.

    Awesome: Clint Eastwood Takes on Political Correctness

    Conservative Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood has no problem voicing his political opinions, something we learned from his infamous empty chair skit during the 2012 Republican National Convention.

    He is still boldly speaking his mind as of this week, this time at France’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

    A 19-year-old U.S. soldier was able to come home for the first time since Christmas when a total stranger bought him a plane ticket for Memorial Day weekend.

    Keaton Tilson, a U.S. Army mechanic stationed in Fort Hood, Texas, waited in the Dallas airport for two days, hoping to fly on standby after getting last-minute leave to come home.

    Time wasted away and Tilson’s chances at seeing his loved ones in the St. Louis area got slimmer. Then Josh Rainey from St. Louis County intervened.

    Rainey offered his ticket to Tilson, but the airline refused to let him transfer it. He started to walk away, but then turned around and bought the soldier his own ticket.

    “Got discouraged. Apologized. He thanked me. I walked away, and I called my wife, which I would do in a situation like that to kind of ask for her advice, and we agreed both that it was the right thing to do to go back and buy the ticket,” Rainey said.

    The young soldier asked his benefactor if he could hug him afterwards. Both men fought back tears, Rainey said.

    “I know I’m in uniform, but at the same time, I’m a person just like he is, and for him to do that not even knowing who I am was just … it makes me so appreciative,” Tilson said.

    “It was pennies. It was pennies on the dollar compared to what I got back after he gave me that hug … It was really amazing,” Rainey remembered.

    The kind and patriotic deed coincides with Memorial Day, when America calls to mind the fallen warriors who have preserved the freedoms we enjoy in our country.

    The Good Samaritan said he will keep the receipt of the ticket to remind himself what is really important in life: family and serving others.

        Lucille Ball was truly a great and inventive comedic actress. People have a tendency to think comics are funny in real life…a laugh a minute…and are just being themselves onscreen. Some are, most aren’t. But Lucy wasn’t “on” when she was off screen. She was no-nonsense, witty on occasion, but very serious about her work.

        I didn’t interact with her a whole lot; that was my boss’s job. But I definitely knew she was as hard-working an actor I’ve ever been around, and she expected hard work from everyone on her set and in any way connected to her work. Gosh, those were great days.

    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

    Holy Molly We Are Doing It! I received this response from a fellow Treeper by the name Guyver1. Lets get the last holdout to DROP HER!

    Yes it is, fleporeblog!!!

    I just checked on Ticketmaster and on the websites for the five remaining venues on her schedule…

    Her website has not been updated!!!
    Just 1 of the five venues left on her website have not cancelled- the other 4 have!!!

    For your viewing pleasure:


    State Theatre New Jersey
    7 hours ago
    Please note: After careful consideration of recent events and for the safety of our patrons, Kathy Griffin’s November 3rd performance has been cancelled. All Kathy Griffin ticket buyers will be issued a full refund. If you purchased your tickets on Ticketmaster please call 800-745-3000. If you purchased your tickets through another party, please contact them directly.

    The Uptown Theatre in Napa is the last holdout… Let’s pour it on!!!

    Payback feels so good- about time we gave them a dose of their own medicine.

    I feel good in a naughty way. My life is music- and this is what has been going through my mind nonstop since the start of this battle a couple of days ago…

    I feel good about striking back!
