Friday July 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 †

      Note all the anti capitalists buning down Hamburg. The police should have vans equipped with card readers that drive through these anti capitalists reading the chips in their EBT cards and driver’s licenses. Process the information and remove each and everyone of them from the benefits rolls. Welfare benefits are only there because of capitalism. If they want to be anti capitalism, let’s help them!

    It’s 1963 or so and progressive jazz is still the pinnacle of cool. When Paul Desmond and Jim Hall set down to make this kind of magic, everyone listened. And if you couldn’t be there, the almost next best thing was huddling under the covers listening to a far-off radio station on your little transistor radio. 🙂

        This song has a part that reminds me of Brubeck’s “Time Out”, starting at about 2:50. This is a lengthy one, much of it instrumental, lasting for 9:50.

        Lots of flute! Can’t say I’m crazy about the lyrics though.

          yep…can hear a little similarity there, at the 2:50 mark on your vid.

          but nobody compares really to Brubeck (imho). 🙂

            Yes, my bad! My ex-girlfriends dad was a big Brubeck aficionado. We would sometimes pause in our conversations and listen to music. Besides Brubeck, Mario Lanza was another of his favorites. In turn, I’d sometimes bring a Rick Wakeman or Edvard Grieg album for us to listen to.


          • Garrison Hall says:

            As a college freshman, the first realization that I was in a very different, potentially important, phase of my life was when I found that “Take Five” was in my school’s cafeteria jukebox. Every time I stopped there for lunch, I listen to “Take Five”. Progressive jazz, for a time anyway, defined cool to a whole generation.

    They don’t censor, they don’t track your searches, and they return results based on number of hits ONLY, so you get a fair, impartial result whenever you look for something.

    Also, Google is busy trying to eat the world. ALSO, Google, on its rotten homepage logo, made No commemoration of Memorial Day, and completely IGNORED Independence Day. To Hades with them.

But they aren’t settling for just confiscating guns nope, they will even confiscate your kitchen knives. I know, I know. It seems a little to far out to believe right?

    Sharia wins again, forces the segregation of the $exes in a conquered Western nation.

    Swedes To Organise ‘No Men’ Festival to Limit $ex Attacks

    “Swedish feminist Emma Knyckare has an answer to the rising number of $ex assaults at Swedish music festivals: organise events where men aren’t allowed to attend.

    “$ex attacks plagued Swedish music festivals last year as many men often described as having a “foreign origin,” molested and raped girls who were often underage.

    “It is unlikely that men will ever be allowed to attend Knyckare’s festival in the future either. When asked if men could ever potentially attend she said, “yes if they stop r@ping.”

    Of course. Since it’s a feminist organizer – and a European one at that – she gets it wrong.

    Not men having a “foreign origin” need to stop r@ping
    Not fuslims need to stop r@ping
    Not Middle Easterners need to stop r@ping
    Not North Africans need to stop r@ping
    Not Somalis, Congolese, Eritreans, Syrians, Pakistanis, Afghans, Moroccans need to stop r@ping

    MEN need to stop r@ping.

    As if it’s polite Sven, Mattias, and Erik that are the main problem.

    But yeah, I guess it’s “men” – it’s hard to dispute that characterization at the most fundamental, pedantic level.

    As in “Someone’s doing the r@ping, Don.”

    But you have to be willfully clueless and pedantic to reduce it to “men”. Right?
    Am I wrong here? I’m just sayin’ …

    Of course we have female-centric concerts in the US. There was the Lilith Festival and there are Miley Cyrus and Arianna Grande and Katy Perry concerts and such. Although Miley has long degenerated into p0rn, essentially, and parents should recognize it’s advisable they not take their young children.

    But men are still allowed to attend.

    Although at Lilith, you might have your Man Card questioned and be subject to insults like in this photo:

    But you could still attend Lilith if you wanted to accompany your wife or girlfriend, or take your daughters. Truth be told, I like a couple Sarah McLaughlin numbers my own dam self, esp the one that was on those animal shelter adverts. Tear to my eye and all that.

    Oh well – Cheers Western Europe!

    Enjoy your diversity
    And your pedantic feminists
    And their simple-minded solutions for keeping “men” at bay
    While you admit half the lawless Third World
    And become the same
    Funny how that works, no?

    Or should I say “non”?

      An Old Irish Joke

      It was Paddy and Seamus giving the motorcycle a ride on a brisk autumn day. After a wee bit, Paddy who was sitt’n behind Seamus on the bike began to holler …’Seamus … Seamus … the wind is cutt’n me chest out!’

      ‘Well, Paddy my lad,’ said Seamus, ‘why don’t you take your jacket off and turn it from front to back … that’ll block the wind for you.’

      So Paddy took Seamus’ advice and turned his jacket from front to back and got back on the bike and the two of them were off down the road again. After a bit, Seamus turned to talk to Paddy and was horrified to see that Paddy was not there. Seamus immediately turned the bike around and retraced their route. When after a short time he came to a turn and saw a bunch of farmers standing around Paddy who was sitting on the ground.

      ‘T’anks be to heaven, is he alright?’ Seamus hailed to the farmers.
      ‘Well,’ said one of the farmers, ‘ he was alright when we found him here .. but since we turned his head back to front .. he hasn’t said a word since!’

    PSA #2: If you have a gap, old navy, banana republic, athleta account your computer could be infected with some type of malware. The bank that issued the credit cards for them, synchrony, got hacked on June 16th or 19th, and now Internet providers are shutting down the ip’s that were hit. Our service got shut off last night – completely shut off – and it took some time to get to the bottom of what was happening.

    All because on 6/25 I tried to pay my bill on line! I was unable to, so used the automated phone system to pay, and now I know why I couldn’t get on my account to pay it. Synchrony bank notified the internet providers of the problem, but NOT its account holders. I opened the account and used the card ONE TIME at old navy to buy some summer clothes for the boys – the sale was 30% off everything in the store, plus another 10% if you used your old navy card. Well, since I didn’t have an old navy card… clerk offered me a great “deal,” with an additional 15% off for opening an account. Walked out with two YUGE bags of summer clothes for the 6-year-old and 1-year-old – mostly for the 6-year-old all for $106.83. I paid it – in full – ’bout two weeks ago.

    Yep. Super duper deal. What’s it going to cost to have my laptop cleaned by a professional?! Great job, there, BT! Way to go!! All to save 55% on cheap clothes from – who knows where – probably Chinah! And, now, malware on my laptop… Even with Kaspersky… [Called synchrony bank last night to close the account. Couldn’t get a U.S. representative on the phone after almost half an hour on hold! Speaker phone – terrible muzak. Finally hung up. Synchrony better hope it costs less than $106.83 to have my laptop fixed. I will call to close the account and graciously thank them for NOT contacting me about THEIR computer breach, later. After I take my laptop to get it cleaned. And it won’t be at Best Buy, either. We have a local shop we use.] I am so pissed right now – still – I can barely speak, tap out letters on this iPad… How are “they” able to get away with this crap so often, no matter what we do to protect ourselves?!? Thinking the pakistani IT crowd… nothing to do with my problem, but…

    So, FYI, if you have a gap, old navy, banana republic, athleta account through synchrony bank, YOU MAY BE INFECTED WITH MALWARE.

    Black Lives Matter leaders sued over Baton Rouge police shooting

    A police officer wounded in a shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last year that left three officers dead sued Black Lives Matter movement leaders on Friday, accusing them of inciting violence that spurred the attack.

    The lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana named DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders as defendants and sought at least $75,000 in damages.

    It came on the one-year anniversary of one of the deadliest days in modern U.S. history for law enforcement. On July 7, 2016, a black man angered by what he saw as deadly racial bias in U.S. policing launched a downtown Dallas sniper attack, killing five officers deployed at a protest decrying police shootings of black men.

    McKesson was not immediately available for comment and Black Lives Matter leaders have denied accusations that their movement promotes violence against police.

    About 10 days after the Dallas shooting, a decorated ex-U.S. Marine sergeant opened fire on police in Baton Rouge, killing three officers.

    Baton Rouge had been hit by waves of protests after two police officers earlier that month killed a black man, Alton Sterling, under questionable circumstances. The incident was caught on video and sparked national debate.

    The officer wounded in Baton Rouge, who was not named in the lawsuit, was shot by “a person violently protesting against police, and which violence was caused or contributed to by the leaders of and by ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’,” the filing said.

    Gavin Long, the black gunman who killed the Baton Rouge officers and was later shot dead, identified himself as a member of an African-American offshoot of the anti-government, mostly white Sovereign Citizen Movement, documents showed.

    Last year, McKesson and two other activists sued the Baton Rouge police department and other officials over the arrests of nearly 200 demonstrators during mostly peaceful protests over police killings.

    This situation – well, I have to say after owning and keeping dogs who are “difficult” – really is deplorable.

    I have had furniture destroyed and should have purchased stock in “pee pads” for my little 16-year-old, shelter-rescued “marker.”
    Dogs need attention and structure. They are not stuffed animals. Our dogs are inside and outside all day long and they still can be challenging.

    ·         I met and married an American, we have been married almost 33 years…history teaches I saved myself as a Treeper posted how in Quebec refugees put isis type cards on cars telling them to submit or die…really????, yep, this is what Prime Minister Bambi wants….
    ·           I was considered a legal resident alien when I came across, but I cried when we went to our first college football game, his alma mater, when they raised the flag and I got to sing MY anthem with my hand over my heart for the first time!
    ·         I had to pass a physical to be granted a marriage visa, if anything had been wrong with me they wouldn’t have let me in , boy how things have changed
    ·         I studied and took the Citizenship test and then was sworn in with about 1000!!!!other soon to be Americans.  They made an area a ward of the Court to fit us all in. The judge apparently forgot his robe so we had to wait about an hour til someone could get it to him LOL!!!!  p.s. it was worth the wait!!!😄🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    ·         I am all in.  People will say well aren’t you a dual citizen?….I respond, legally I have no idea and I do not care.  I committed myself 100% to this wonderful country, will fight for her and will challenge anyone who says I am not an American, my friends know the look when they tease me, they know better.🤣😂🤣🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    ·         Funny when I was studying for my Citizenship test, the DAR manual instructed me you are not a Spanish American, you are not a German American, you are not any hyphenated American, YOU ARE AN AMERICAN….I took it to heart…even though they had me at American 😉 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    ·         I look at our beautiful flag every day and am awe struck I get to call her mine.  My heart has been breaking for some time, seeing what was happening here as happened when I was growing up….but then came one beautiful glorious bastard, our wonderful Donald J. Trump who said he would save us, and we TRUSTED him and knew he told the truth, and he became President Donald J. Trump and I couldn’t be prouder of him or more grateful that he is saving our beloved Republic.  💖💖💖 God is so good, never lose faith, always have TRUST, He is carrying us in the palm of His hands.  We are blessed, I am blessed, and it is never ever lost on me how lucky I am. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
