Monday June 26th – 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 †

    LAPD have been arresting child abusers. The following link has an update plus suggestions for parents on keeping your children safe if they use the internet.

    My kids were small when the internet wasn’t available – they could play “Froggie Crossing” and beat the socks off me, but they weren’t online while they played this game. It’s much more risky for children now — the link is worth a read

    From the link — at least 186 arrests. That’s a lot, I’d think, even though LA is huge: “Los Angeles: June has been designated as Internet Safety Month, and June is also a time when our children have more free time and less supervision during the summer months away from school.

    “In anticipation of this, in the months of April and May 2017, the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children (ICAC) Task Force launched “Operation Broken Heart IV”. This operation resulted in the arrest of over 186 child predators…”

    Here’s a patriotic post from a young man in Michigan. We don’t get to see this kind of spirit and faith in too many people these days, let alone our youth. It’s a short post worth your time.

  4. “time” has an article on most influential people on the internet. Most I never heard of but I saw a Green Frog face (pepe) with this accounting….
    These people live on a different planet!

    “The 37-year-old artist never intended to create the Internet’s most notorious meme. But when far-right extremists chose Pepe the Frog — the “blissfully stoned” character Furie had drawn for a 2005 web comic — to be their mascot, there wasn’t much Furie could do. As the 2016 presidential campaign heated up, members of the alt-right started editing Pepe’s likeness and using it to spread racist, sexist and anti-Semitic messages, so much so that the Anti-Defamation League declared Pepe a “hate symbol.” Furie has repeatedly condemned the memes, and in May he killed Pepe off in an attempt to reclaim his creation. But those efforts have been mostly futile, showing just how quickly and powerfully the Internet can seize — and transform — even a seemingly benign piece of content. —Lisa Eadicicco”

    If I have to hear one more leftist claim how PDJT and the Republicans are so awful because they are trying to “fix” healthcare and in the process throwing poor people out of hospitals and giving gobs of money to military contractors and rich people instead, I’m going to literally throw up. Meanwhile, somewhere in Nancy Pelosi’s neighborhood, we’ve all just bought and paid for this:

    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

      Fun! Thank you for posting that! I remember working in NYC long ago… and I’m thinking of people who work at night in buildings that face the Empire State Building. I hope they knew so they could enjoy a break from work….
