Monday June 5th – 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 †

    Dad walks daughter to first day of kindergarten, last day of high school
    June 4, 2017

    ALVORD, Texas – As his daughter was preparing to graduate high school, a Texas father was going through old pictures and couldn’t help but get emotional over one picture.

    Jason Gayler of Alvord, Texas found a picture of him walking his daughter, Brittany, to school on her first day of kindergarten at 5 years old. It gave him the idea to recreate the moment 13 years later.

    Gayler walked his 18-year-old daughter to school on her last day as a senior at Alvord High School and recreated the picture.

    “It was very bittersweet walking with him,” Brittany told NBC’s Today. “It’s definitely a moment I’m going to remember forever.

    Jason Gayler, 38, told BuzzFeed that he was “holding back the tears” while walking with his daughter.

    Barack Obama and Joe Biden are on a plane. Suddenly Biden says I can throw 100 dollars out of this plane and make 100 people happy. Obama says I can throw 1000 dollars out of the plane and make 1000 people happy. The pilot over heard this and said, “I can throw both of you out of this plane and make the whole country happy.”

    From wiseGEEK:

    What Unusual Items Have Been Shipped by the US Postal Service?

    When the United States Postal Service began parcel post service in 1913, people began to ship all kinds of things — including, occasionally, children. According to the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, the first shipment of a child occurred in 1913 when Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Beauge of Glen Este, Ohio, “mailed” their 10-pound (4.5 kg) baby son to his grandmother’s house. The mile-long special delivery cost them 15 cents in postage, although they also insured their son for $50 USD.

    Precious cargo:

    ◆These human parcels weren’t actually put into boxes. Baby Beauge, for example, was physically carried to his destination by Rural Free Delivery carrier Vernon Little.

    ◆ Some children were mailed considerably farther distances. Edna Neff of Pensacola, Florida, was 6 years old when she was sent by railway mail to her father’s home in Christiansburg, Virginia, around 720 miles (1,158.7 km) away. The package weight was recorded as slightly under the 50-pound (22.7 kg) limit.

    ◆ In 1914, the Postmaster General instituted a new rule that stands to this day — people are not eligible to be shipped by the US Postal Service.

    With grateful hearts, we should give praise to the Great Mercies of the LORD for giving us President Trump. We acknowledge His Presence in how President Trump has exposed the uni-party, the gop-E, the soulless, bought out bureaucrats that only want to establish the one world government and destroy America.

    LORD, bless our President, give him wisdom and protect President Trump and his family from evil. Confound and disturb in mind or purpose the plans laid against him.

    LORD, we, fellow Treepers all, ask that you give comfort to Raven in today’s trial. Holy Spirit wrap her with peace and comfort. We praise the Name of Jesus now and in that glorious day when we are gathered together to see you, face to face.

      Wonder if the man in the dark-color double-breasted is GHWB’s father. Looks like a Bush. By 1948 he’d already been a war hero pilot, was married and had a child, George.

      If politically he’d been an America-centric rather than a globalist/elitist, he could have been a remarkable President. Our destinies, however, are often set at an early age. He never got past the family legacy.

    On way home from a family friend’s graduation party Sat night and got rear ended at a dead stop by, drum roll please, drunk illegal doing about 40 in a Rousch Performance F-150. No brakes, no attempt to swerve, just BANG.

    Kids say they are ok. Wife and I are a little dinged up, neck and back stuff. Exams and MRI’s to follow.

    Now, we were in my 2001 7.3 diesel 4×4 Ford Excursion. He broke a rear LED spot light and the plastic clip that holds one of the license plates lights in the bumper. The bumper is a tick off center, but that is all. His truck, thousands and thousands and thousands worth of front end damage. LMAO. He probably thought he hit a tank. If I had a turret on there, I would have swung that thing around and blasted him back to banana town.

    His fake, black “wife” who owns the truck and has at least some insurance on it shows up and tries to get me to tell the cop she was driving “because he is illegal.” He went to jail, I’m trying to get her arrested as well for knowingly allowing a non licensed driver to use “her” vehicle. If you can’t straw purchase a gun, you shouldn’t be able to straw purchase a vehicle and turn someone loose in it.

    Typical BS, Sanford cops knew him all too well and said he is a weekly to monthly problem for them. SA office and Judiciary just keep turning him out. Seminole County Sheriff is responsible for calling ICE at jail intake, but rarely ever do I found out. Also, imo, the local SA office is petty much a do nothing when it comes to this type of stuff or other non major crimes. However, if he hadn’t hit me, he would have destroyed the little Kia in front of me and most likely severely injured them or worse.

    I’m pretty tempted to call local FOX affiliate and make a giant stink. Stay tuned.

      Pluribus provides trained and experienced experts in intelligence, counterintelligence, and counterterrorism.

      Pluribus supports development, testing, and accelerated fielding of leading-edge capabilities in Cyber, Electronic Warfare, Special Purpose Electronic Attack, and Computer Network Attack.”

    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

    For further information, call Audrey Butkus at (415) 575-9129 or email at and ask about Case No. 2017-003880PCA and/or Case No. 2017-003880MAP.

    sf residents should oppse the Case No. 2017-003880PCA & Case No. 2017-003880MAP.the state use taxpayer money to defend illegals, they should all cut permanently cut their own pensions per illegal and only keep a5 kobe beef of illegals,but deport rest.

    the city sf has raises taxes one too many times and toss too much burden on citizens. this force relocation makes sf officials act like communist china that is bribed by rich investors. this will make cost of everything hike up more.

    outside usa already less regulations/corporate illegal immigration paris treaty will hike cost of everything in usa especially cost of sustain social benefits/healthcare.this Case No. 2017-003880PCA & Case No. 2017-003880MAP project will ruin many lives of middle class. the city sf/investor are offering considerable way less to relocate too. just to build one huge complex that is more likely for refugees/illegals section 8 or only for elites….
