Thursday July 27th – 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 †

      This really happened??… I heard of her and those hunting pics, a couple times… the suicide really surprises me. Without really knowing all the background, I wonder why people just don’t quit social media…. I suppose it is complicated….

      Boy, does she look like a happy, happy momma with all of her pups. Look at her tail wagging real high and nice with even beats. Momma is having as much fun as her pups are. So cool, thank you.

      I love golden retrievers, and I’m going to guess those are white golden retrievers like my Ella, real light coloring.

      Right now my Ella is getting frustrated with our Cheetah. Cheetah is up on the deck barking to the world, she likes doing it from that high because her bark carries far and wide.

      Ah! Ella is all good now, I called Cheetah in from the garage and they are both resting. Cheetah just gave a loud sigh. Couldn’t help but giggle, and I swear our Ella just rolled her eyes. This is going to be another great day with the pups.

      I so wish I knew if there was a way to copy pictures from my iPhone 6 and put them here. I’ve taken, and my daughter has taken some amazing pup-pup shots of our girls. If anyone knows if it is possible and can speak in real slow, simple english, I’d so appreciate it. I’ve tried a number of times and have always failed.

      I’d love to share the one my 12 year old daughter took, and I now have as my desktop picture? It’s what I see when my phone turns on. I think you Treepers would like it, and then could see in your minds eye the next time I rattle on about our pups.
      Be well good Treepers, and have an amazing day,

              You crack me up, I’m like a three year old too, but I need a heck of a lot of repitition before I can finally get it.

              I want to share what I just found even though it will make me look even dafter (New word I made up).

              I asked Siri about phone data, and she kindly took me to appletoolbox.com. Type in, How to control and limit cellular data use.

              There are a whole bunch of things you can do manually to save. I thought it was pretty cool.

              I ask Siri for everything and I drive my family bonkers every time I push the button when done and say, thank you. I love some of her answers, she’s got a great sense of humor and is always super nice to me, which she is on the mean side to my husband. I think after time they answer by your personality. She is smart after all.

              There are a few questions you can ask that will give hilarious replies, I will ask my husband what they are again, so you can try them with your hubbie for a good laugh.

              I don’t know if you live in a big town or not, but I always ask Siri for directions. You have to be careful in how you ask though. I always say, “Please give me directions to the closest Fred Meyers from my location.” I use ‘closest’ if there are multiple, and the only word I change is the desired place. One can put a physical address in there too. Both work easy.

              When we went to Colorado, we did this with Siri I don’t know how many times a day. Sometimes it can get frustrating because she can’t get your words right, or your accent is too hard for her to decifer. But all the other times, she leads right to the front door. She’s amazing. We got to restaurants, shopping malls, best highways to go from town to town in the state and everything else you can think of in between. You don’t ever need a GPS in your car because Siri is it. You can also use your phone while it is giving you directions too. When you’re done, just tap the upper, thin green bar on top, and it will bring you right to the screen and exactly where you are. It will also reroute if you go the wrong way or take the wrong exit, which happened a time or two. Oh, it happened a lot more than that if we are to be honest. 😁

              We live outside a real small town and we have a larger town with more shopping about 25-35 minutes away depending on the store.

              I use Siri as my phone book too. Just yesterday I had her look up, Great Alaskan Pizza for my husband and daughter last night and their phone number. When the info came up, all I did was press the ‘call’ button. So 😎 cool.

              Last, if I don’t know what someone is talking about, I ask Siri before I have to use my fingers on the internet. Used that this morning when I asked about data limits. 🙃

              Oh, and the word Siri and I had the most problems with was Pueblo. My husband and daughter had more laughs from that one than any other in Colorado, at my expense of course.

              Last, when you ask for directions somewhere, please make sure to check how many miles or the amount of time it will take. If Siri didn’t understand you like she should, she could have you going across the U.S. On the Pueblo one she kept having me go 2,000 plus miles to the east coast somewhere. Drove me batty. I don’t know how many times I caught myself from giving hubbie directions to the closest highway so we could drive to the east coast on some wild goose chase when really it was only a few miles away.

              I will get back to you on the funny questions, so you guys can have a good laugh.

              Stay smiling, and don’t forget to help me when you have the pictures figured out! Be well,
              Ma’iingankwe

      At first, it means more safety demonstrations.

      Then, treatment for those at risk for genetic diseases will be offered via something like treatment for fertility issues. Extract eggs, donate semen, make single cell embryos by fertilizing eggs. ‘Fix’ defective genes. Implant embryos. Get several kids without genetic disease. Genetic disease will no longer be passed down.

      Note, eventually pressures will rise to ‘prevent’ all future genetic diseases. Think a more focused, humaner eugenics. “We aren’t forbidding anyone from having children, but we are protecting those children by Planned Parenthooding to prevent the next Charlie.”. “With your genes, you must use birth control to protect your children and only be allowed to conceive via this process.”. “We can’t allow your naturally conceived diseased child to be born.”. “As an unrepentant, repeat offender, you are hereby sentenced to sterilization.”

      Later, designer babies will be offered. At first it will be ‘safe’ attributes. Taller, stronger, good looks etc. There will of course be PC limitations. Eventually it will expand into the fruitcake world. The nuts that modify themselves into strange things will be more than happy to be able to make modified children. Purple hair. Glow in the dark skin. Animal attributes.

      They may even figure out both how to completely modify a multicell embryo, and how to do so safely inside the womb without adversely impacting the mother. After that, if they can change adults, then the disease could be removed prior to an act of conception. But all egg and sperm have to be modified.

        Jim in TN,
        You just scared the heck out of me for my future grandchildren etc. This is so not the way. I can’t imagine our Creator allowing this. I know, free will. Okay, I’m really scared again.

        We should be allowed to conceive our children naturally and love and accept all of our children no matter what they may be born with. Our Creator never gives us anything we are not strong enough for. At least that is how I like to think. And all of our children are miracles, every single one of them.

        I do appreciate your explanation into this though. I can’t keep carrying on with blinders.

          Thanks Ma’iingankwe. And sorry about being a downer. We need to be aware of what is happening, or else we will never be able to rise in time to stop it.

          I remember reading a book of essays against abortion in the 70’s, impressed by the slippery slope arguments. Since then pro abortion side always sneers at those arguments. Yet every one has come true. And the sneering continues as they push ever further.

          Later I came to realize that the purpose of ‘bioethics’ wasn’t to help scientists be ethical. Instead they figure out ways to cross those ethical lines and feel good about it.

          Example, redefine cloning from the copying to implanting the copy in the womb. Call the copying a new name. Then you are free to do it as much as you want. Just don’t put your cloned human in the womb.

          Better yet, dupe a few famous but ill actors into thinking that cloning is the way to cure them, and conduct a campaign to shame those who stand against you, and to demand government fund you. Yet nothing you plan on doing will ever cure anybody, and you know that.

          I have seen too much to believe that, short a massive moral conversion, that we will honor ethical lines. We need a great revival, like the ones that helped create this country.

          Until then, expect the left to push every moral. Today’s morality will be portrayed tomorrow as bigotry and they will keep inventing new morals, until they succeed in taking full control, in the style of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc.

          And expect us scientists to push every boundary as well. For some it is a need to know, to learn. For others it is a desire to help, to do. Yet only being first gets recognized and rewarded.

          I have learned that the Creator is the source of all that is good. And truly some great good can result. But failure to adhere to the Creator leaves one vulnerable to that which is not good. So stand strong in your faith, and help undo the left. MAGA.

    San Francisco transit officials withhold video of teen crimes to avoid racial stereotyping

    Transit authorities in the San Francisco area are withholding video of crimes by black teens, claiming that it would promote unfair racial stereotypes.

    The videos show the youths stealing purses, wallets, and phones. Between 40 and 60 teens boarded a train on April 22 and robbed seven passengers.

    “The individuals they saw on video were repeat offenders. They knew who these people were,” said witness Rusty Stapp, who is suing to get the video released.

      Is Sessions colluding with Senators to undermine the President?

      Above and beyond recusal there are all the things Sundance brings up that are not being addressed. Sessions isn’t even demanding timely confirmation of appointees. Which enables Obama Holdovers to attack and thwart POTUS. Lots more than not investigating leaks.

      And letting Rosenstein gut the law so Mueller can run rampant in his manufacturing of a crime to use to remove Trump, or at the least employing Democrat activists to do opposition research against Trump, if they can’t smear him enough to make him go away.

      And all the while, false accusations are leaked to cover up All good news and progress. Congress occupies itself ‘investigating’ said false accusations instead of implementing their promised agenda. And the entire mess gives them cover to oppose said agenda in the name of opposing Trump.

      I look at Grassley’s statement much differently than you do. It puts him down to the level of Schumer. And it triggers these thoughts of collusion. That does not make sense if the other side is Schumer, but if it Is McConnell and Grassley and so forth, then I begin to understand why they are letting the Democrats play these games.

      Much more like Trump is getting the swamp to unmask itself, than saying Grassley is there to help Trump.

        Now, Sessions apparently can un-recuse, and take back control of “muh Russia” then put an end to it. I’m more concerned that Sessions has yet to fire one DOJ hack. Surely there are many.

    Warning: with all the construction taking place during the summer, municipalities are again putting out poisons to control the rat population. Warfarin/coumadin/brodifascoum-laced concoctions (anticoagulants) can be hard to detect when you are exercising your pet or walking with toddlers as these poisons are disguised in tiny pellets. Some are packaged in little bags for fast distribution and the rats break them when they drag the poison back to nests, so even those pinned to high poles may end up in your garden. Ask your vet and pediatrician about emergency treatment. Often the steps taken within minutes can save a life.

    On another note, we keep hydrogen peroxide on hand after a puppy decided to invade the chocolates gifted by visitors. He had good taste.

    Another topic:
    The Marxists have set up a great lose-lose situation. First, white Marxists went to the Black community and peddled their philosophy of oppression, etc. They worked to convince some in the Black community that our overall society is “against” them. And, the only solution is utter wholesale change form “institutionalized racism.”

    Law enforcement / Rule of Law is supposedly part of this oppression: they say it look good on first blush, but is simply “school-to-jail pipeline” etc. So, cops stopping people is bad. Crack downs on drug dealers is bad. Etc.

    Vicious cycle: as these ideas became more adopted in the Black community, it encouraged less pro-social behavior, and more anti-social behavior. School kids have had little respect for teachers because school is part of the mechanism of oppression, etc. So, Black kids have less concern over behaving badly in school. So, they get in trouble more. Then, those data are used as “proof” that the school system is inherently racist. So, disrepect for teachers and school system is reified, is more entrenched.

    Same with law enforcement. “Laws against MJ, mandatory sentencing, etc., are all just to oppress Blacks.” So, some in the Black community care less about avoiding MJ sue to penaties. So, there end up being more MJ penalties agianst Blacks than whites. Again, self-fulfilling prophecy. Black use MJ more, end up getting in trouble more, and then those data get used as proof that the system is inherently racist.

    Now, in Baltimore, one measure to improve crime AGAINST THE BLACK COMMUNITY backfires: an attempt to control gun deaths by stronger laws causes some in the Black community to object – not to the horrible epidemic of gun deaths in the Black community – but to the “militarization” of the PoPo!

    Well done, Marxists. Well done.

  41. Hey, it looks like the cheap-labor guys are at it again — https://www.facebook.com/CongressmanKevinYoder/videos/1586665058053068/ — but this time they’re focusing on importing skilled workers rather than that unskilled labor that “Americans won’t do”.

    Hello fellow branch dwellers. I just stopped by to recommend Black Rifle coffee to another member and I thought that I would ask if anyone happened to watch the House Judiciary hearing from yesterday. I found it on r/The_Donald. YouTube has it : H.Res. 446 2017. At 6:50 it gets real interesting. It looks like President Trump is doing what he does best. MAGA

    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
