Thursday September 28th – 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 watched a few moments of Megyn Kelly’s show yesterday. Caught a sappy montage of family talking about how wonderful and accomplished she is. Adjectives and superlatives galore. Totally over the top. It was so so bad.

    I keep reading she’s insulting everyone on the show. Today was wanting Jane Fonda to discuss her plastic surgery while she’s plugging her new movie.

    Suspect celebs already booked while be canceling. Her show is a total flop. Karma baby. It’s a beautiful thing.

      I was just going to make a post about Jane Fonda.
      I’ve been watching the documentary on Viet Nam on PBS. Last night’s segment dealt with
      Jane Fonda.
      As I’ve mentioned previously, Ken Burns has said he lived through that war, and when he went to make this documentary he discovered he actually knew nothing about it.
      I certainly was aware of spoiled Hollywood brat Jane Fonda and her asinine, treasonous, attention-seeking behavior at the time it occurred. Who wouldn’t have been?
      Well, last night I was stunned to find that her behavior was much, much worse than I remembered. Much worse.
      So many times, when we look back on things, our views soften with age and understanding. Not this time.

        And she is (or was) married to Ted Turner the founder of the Communist News Network. Two anti-American commie peas in a pod. Bet they were pen pals with Obama and Bill Ayers back in the ’70’s! Funny but years ago someone had artfully painted her face in the men’s urinal of a local VFW with nail polish. Saw a lot of use so is probably gone now. I imagine they just bought off the shelf Obama urinal “mints” these days. Never heard anyone speak so angrily of Hanoi Jane as a VFW Post regular.

    Hi all,
    I don’t post all that often but some of you may recognize me. Last night Dobby, our loveable furry Cernenco del Etna – Chihuahua mix snuck out of the house when one of the kiddos didn’t close the screen door right. He ended up getting hit by a neighbor’s car and his mind let is in serious need of help. I called the emergency animal clinic and they told me that between the exam fees, X-Rays and lab work the bill would be close to $2000. That’s just not something we can swing. I know a lot of places offer credit plans, but with having been the major care givers to my parents in their last days and my wife just having started back to work….well, suffice it to say our credit rating sucks right now so that’s not an option either. I’m about to call a vet that his highly recommended and see what can be worked out.

    Aside from my wife and kids, Dobby is my absolute best friend. He’s always there for me, fun loving, caring and loyal. I’ve been trying hard not to lose my cool and just break down in tears but I know that would just upset him and he’s already in enough pain.

    I really could use all your prayers working for him right now. Thanks all.

    I brought up Jane Fonda above on this thread, when I learned Megyn Kelly was having a generic Hollywood gasbag relic on her show to hawk a product.
    I swear, the infotainment industry must be subsidized by the plastic surgeons guild or something.
    I wanted to add about Jane Fonda, that she’s always been held up in the media as some sort of feminist. Even as a very young feminist, I could see that she seemed to adopt all her opinions from whomever her current sex partner was. That to me didn’t equal feminist.
    Another thing that was covered in the Viet Nam documentary but of course only briefly, was the election when Richard Nixon ran against George McGovern.
    At the time of that election, the Democrats could have nominated a woman, but feminists did not get behind a woman candidate. They claimed it was “too important” that Nixon be defeated to take a chance on what they considered a fringe candidate, although they did not say that out loud.
    I could not then and I still can’t understand what, from the viewpoint of feminism, made Richard Nixon such a nemesis. He did some bad things, but we did not know what those bad things were at that time. The war was an issue, but Richard Nixon was going to end the war too. What did the war have to do with women’s rights?
    Shirley Chisholm could not have done worse than George McGovern. I wonder who young Hillary Rodham supported?

    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 all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Update and prayer request.

    I shared with my sister (BIL family in Puerto Rico) info Sundance posted last night re: efforts to deliver vital resources

    As I expected (although hoped not) that news was not well received.

    The response was one of anger and resentment. The belief that more should be done at a faster pace.

    I was told there is no government on the island, people are perishing and they expect the private sector to step up, whatever that means.

    God help us, all πŸ™

    I know I did the right thing, thank you for your support.

      They are understandably hurt, scared, desperate.

      Remember Sundance describing the lawlessness around Homestead after Andrew – having to burn houses to have light to keep the criminals away?

      It’s got to be more than three times as bad in Puerto Rico which is pretty lawless in the best of times.

      Leftists, Democrats, corruption and crime are inseparable. Always have been, always will be.

      Beautiful story, wondering. I hope the person getting him back to the family also brings a whole bunch of doggie treats, dog food and other essentials for Meco, especially a collar and name tag.

      Wouldn’t it also be great to bring some special treats for the family’s children and maybe even hold a reunion barbecue. It must have been horrible for the children thinking their dear doggie had disappeared forever.
