Thursday September 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 †

    I GIVE UP!!!! In April of this year I was advised by the State of IL, our personal information (used to register at their jobs site) which was maintained by a private company, America’s Job Link Alliance–Technical Support (AJLA–TS), had been hacked. Upon America’s recommendations, I went to the sites of the 3 main credit agencies, reported their hack and had my accounts frozen (or whatever it is they recommended). Now, I get this email from the NY Post… Equifax has been HACKED, it was one of the agencies I had contacted about the IL breach!!!!

    143M Social Security numbers exposed after hack at credit firm Equifax

    Hackers may have the names and Social Security numbers of 143 million Americans, according to credit-rating company Equifax.

    The agency reported that those and other sensitive personal details were exposed during security breaches between mid-May and July.

    Hackers also trawled through birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers, as well as 209,000 credit card numbers during a massive breach between mid-May and July, the company reported.

    Equifax has set up a dedicated website,, to help people determine if their information was caught up in the hack — and to sign up for credit-monitoring and identity theft protection services.

    In other news:

    Apparently, it is not PC to say “gypsie” in the UK. Gypsies camp out on local “football” “pitch,” and locals show up in great numbers to complain.

    To solve the situation, the government goes after whom?
    Govt serves an eviction notice to – who? to who? to Gypsies Number One, or Gypsie Number Two? – so NOW the gypsies have been served, so NOW dogs can be turned on the locals if thy keep showing up tom complain and protest!

    So, nothing happens to the squatters, because that would be un-PC, but locals face charges. Up is down.

    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.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas and Louisiana who are caught in the flooding. And, now we add everyone in the path of Irma to our prayer for safety.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

  6. Haven’t been on as much as I’d like lately. My personal life has taken me by the horns.

    Who here has resigned due to being asked to participate in unethical/illegal behavior? If so, what happened after the resignation?


    • A plaintiff lawyer specializing in employment law often will offer a free hourly consultation which may give you guidance here, especially if any whistleblower issues are involved. Document the facts of what happened. An attorney may be able to help negotiate a settlement. Although emotions can run hot in a tough situation like this, present to all as if you are before a jury. Presenting well at all times will help your credibility. Although “being taken by the horns” is a tough thing, there may be some benefit down the road that you can’t see in the middle of this challenging time. Sometimes what looks bad can be the catalyst which causes good for you or greater good for all. I will pray that this stumbling block will be turned into a stepping stone for your greater good. I am glad you reached out here. I have always appreciated your posts.

      • Resignation pending, I turned it in yesterday after repeatedly requesting my superiors follow best practices. They don’t want anything documented on their end. What they want isn’t illegal but very unethical.

        There have been other issues of unprofessionalism here as well before this. I figure this is the best time to go and the timing is right.
