Monday October 2nd – 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 †

    Ajit Pai (Chair) confirmed member of the FCC. Y= 52– N=41– NV= 7

    (Ajit Pai was on the FCC commission during Obie’s years, and he’s the one who busted the fact that the D’s on the FCC were attempting to turn the web into a utility so the Feds could regulate it.)

    He did not have to be confirmed for the Chair position; but each member term is 5 years, and Pai’s 5 years apparently is up. So he’s being considered for 5 more year membership to committee.

    More going into Executive Session to consider the nominations of the following:

    Lee Cisna, Dir. US Citizen & Immigration Services, DHS dept.
    Eric Hargon, HHS Deputy Secy.
    Randall Quarles, (Colorado) Federal Reserve Board of Govs.
    Calista Gingrich, Dept of State – Ambassador to the Holy See

    Everything I loathe about so many self-indulgent, self-important musicians and celebrities is everything I always admired about Tom Petty, who personified unpretentious integrity. That, and his status headlining what I believe to be the greatest of all American rock bands.

    And while he certainly leaned left, he never aggressively imposed his political views on a captive audience the way Bruce Springsteen insists on doing.

    My stars! The bodies are not even cold yet, let alone the complete facts being in, and EVERY DEMONRAT in the Senate has been on more control of firearms!!!!!!! (Some even have had the gaul (TrickyDickieDurban) to state that every single day we have a mass shooting).

    Total lies, protected by being on the Senate floor while speaking.

    It’s called the Constitution. It’s called the 2nd Amendment. Already, laws they have passed are unconstitutional.

    You cannot legislate morality.

    From now on, I hope at least a few fine folks going to these sorts of outdoor concerts have a rifle secured and at the ready in their pickup … something like an AR10 with several loaded 20-round magazines with a very good quality zeroed scope.

    Had there been one or two of these readily available to a couple of well-practiced folks being shot at during all those terrifying minutes, it’s likely that hateful demon on the 32nd floor would have been dead within less than a minute.

    Senate adjourned after some more gun bashing without taking any votes, until 10amEST tomorrow.

      So – let me see if I understand your post correctly, Mama – it was a normal ‘do-nothing’ day in the Senate – was it not?

        Yes. They didn’t gavel in until 3pmEST, held one confirmation vote. Then they let the yackers have time to preen to the camera, whilst the Senate is in Executive Committee (behind closed doors) deciding whatever. (I hate TurtleHead’s running of the Senate. There is no on-camera debate, and the only time they’re all in there on the Floor is to vote.

          Geesh! No wonder they get nothing done! They probably don’t have cameras because no one shows up on a daily basis – don’t want us to see that – the only time they did have cameras was when there was a vote – right?


          • BigMamaTEA says:

            No, actually, there is a camera going from the time they gavel in until they adjourn.

            I generally shows the clerk/secy/workers for the Senate. Then there is a podium where these congress-criminals walk up to, to be on camera. But, even when there is a lull in activity, I can see the Senate employees moving around 3 different levels of desks, and see pages on either side.

              Ok – still doesn’t prove they are doing anything other than for ‘show’ – do you watch these everyday? Can you tell on what they are working, if anything? It must be extremely boring when they do ‘get on camera’ – it is no wonder they accomplish little – God Help Us!

                Almost. (But they rarely work more than 3 days a week)

                I am signed up for notices from all of the leadership, which gives an anticipation of the the next scheduled days. The House sends out a projection for the next week. The Senate, you can go get the next Daily Calendar each evening, and sometimes they actually get to it!
                You can always go to the official record after something happens. You can always later the vote totals.

    Evidently Tom Petty is still hanging in there. I heard his daughter is PISSED 😡 at Rolling Stone for reporting him dead. This is for Tom, his rendition of a song that many use to depict Trump battling against MSM:

    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.

    A few years ago the Beaver had my valley filled with water. They built their dam too high and a spring wet spell moved the center much like a door on hinges. Flooded the road and the county highway workers and I talked again. They used to give me a permit to do things that were illegal for normal trapping, Da rules changed and the swamp grew……. But that spring rain filled over capacity for engineering of a bever.

    Now I’ve a lovely meadow with a few dozen tomatoes, red bell peppers, and a small pumpkin patch.

    Always wanted more sunlight for a garden. Felt a bit over my head when I realized what I was gifted with.

    I find this video inspirational;

    Before President Trump was elected I felt much like this man;

    I have hope again…feels so good…
