Wednesday July 12th – 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 †

        Length is not an issue. It’s the cutsie top knot bun which is the “in” thing for the pajama boy no-gender crowd. Pony tails are fine; a long braid is fine. Neatness is always great for both men and women.

          William Banta, Indian fighter, Civil War soldier, and autobiographer, was born in Warrick Co., Indiana on June 23, 1827, the son of Isaac and Elizabeth Barker Banta. The family immigrated to Texas in 1839 and settled briefly at Clarksville in Red River County. The following year, the Isaac Banta family moved to Lamar County; they finally settled on Bullard Creek, not far from Bonham in Fannin County, where Isaac Banta was the first Justice of the Peace.

          William Banta moved to Austin in 1849, then to Burnet, where he married Lucinda Hairston on March 3, 1850. This was the first marriage in that county.

          William Banta organized and commanded the first company of minutemen in Burnet Co. and participated in nearly every engagement against Indians in the region throughout the 1850s. He saw service on the Texas frontier during the Civil War as lieutenant, then Captain, of Company A of the Frontier Regiment.

          His baptism into the Church of Christ was the first in Williamson Co. (later Burnet Co.) He became a gospel preacher and officated at the marriages of at least two of his daughters, Ellen and Kittie.

          With J. W. Cadwell, he wrote an account of his life as a Texas Ranger titled “Twenty-seven Years on the Texas Frontier,” first published in 1893. It was published again in 1933 by his grandson L. G. Park of Council Hill, Oklahoma. In the book, “Twenty-seven Years on the Texas Frontier”, so much more is written about his first-hand accounts of life on the Texas frontier.

          Even though his military tombstone shows his year of death as 1890, William Banta married his second wife, Althea Ann Jeffers Cadwell in 1893. She was the widow of John Thomas Wesley “J. W.” Cadwell (1824-1868).

          Well he sure had a full life eh

    Revealed: The World’s Ten Foremost Islamophobes
    By Robert Spencer

    “Linda Sarsour says that the term jihad ‘has been hijacked by Muslim extremists and right-wing extremists alike,’ and she must know, right? So here is a new listing of some of the worst of those right-wing extremist Islamophobes who besmirch Islam and the concept of jihad by cherry-picking Qur’an verses and ripping them out of context to claim that jihad involves violence:

        You know, I was trying to recall, just the other day, what it was like, shopping in non-airconditioned stores in the summer.
        I live in a Northern state, but it still gets hot in summer. It couldn’t have been that bad, or I’d remember it, wouldn’t I?
        I certainly remember trying to sleep in a hot upstairs bedroom as a child.

          I grew up in S CA, where it was 110 when school started. I do remember that when school was out, we discarded our shoes, and never wore them, except to church, until school started.
          But you know what? I do not remember much ab how hard it was to put them on again in Sept.
          And we were always outside playing. My Mother parted my hair in the middle, and gave me braids. And I once got blisters in my part line ! But I have NO recollection of it being that hot outside.
          I believe when we are kids we are focused on having fun, but when we are adults we become sensitive (or obsessed) with our comfort.

          I don’t remember having air conditioning at home until I was out of high school and gone but that was in the late 60’s. I remember sleeping on our screened in porch when it was really hot. We did have fans thank goodness.I don’t think it bothered us back then because we were so used to it.

        I just remembered something the friend said. He said that if the parents had been rich they could have gone to a private hospital and paid for whatever treatment they thought they needed. Hmm. It appears to me that THIS is exactly what socialized medicine says it will stop….the poor getting different treatment than the rich.

      They are claiming government is not going to decide this.
      Are we to believe, should the parents fail to make their case, that it’s a bunch of doctors who will stop the parents from picking up their infant and going home?
      On what authority?

    Trigger warning: I’m going to post a column by Jonah Goldberg. It does not have any Tump-bashing in it.
    I’m posting it because he’s saying the same thing I said, that the parents of Charlie Gard had their parental rights negated without due process.
    He speaks as both a father and someone who’s dealt with a similar life and death issue.
    The people we’ve been seeing on the news, passed out on drugs right in front of their small children, leaving those children unattended, only lose their rights after due process, after they are proven unfit in a court of law.
    People have various opinions on this case, but they miss a larger point, if this can happen to Chris Gard and Connie Yates, it can happen to any mother or father, at any time, for any reason.

    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

    No, the Arctic shelf break off is not due to climate change.

    I’ve studied Larsen C and its giant iceberg for years – it’s not a simple story of climate change


    However, in satellite images from the 1980s, the rift was already clearly a long-established feature, and there is no direct evidence to link its recent growth to either atmospheric warming, which is not felt deep enough within the ice shelf, or ocean warming, which is an unlikely source of change given that most of Larsen C has recently been thickening. It is probably too early to blame this event directly on human-generated climate change.

    “We are vandal group”? It’s just a hunch, but I strongly suspect that this is yet another in the long line of “anti-Muslim hate crimes” that turn out to have been faked by Muslims themselves.
