Sunday November 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 †

      What a job. You get to be close up and personal with every female on the beach, yet claim moral righteousness and indignation at any violations you find.

      I would have thought they would have hired women to do that. Women did work back then.

      It is amazing how much we have changed.

      I love Israel – went in 1978 with a Christian tour group. Landed at night and took a bus directly to the King David Hotel in Bethlehem. Woke to the bleating of sheep, looked out the window and it was like a scene out of the Bible – could have been in David’s or Jesus’ time – there were shepherds and sheep on a rocky hillside….amazing.

      The whole trip was like time travel….going back to the powerful events in the earthly physical, political, social realm and the heavenly spiritual realm that changed the world and many hearts forever and ever.

      I don’t need to watch her watch her response to the press to know they started screeching about Trump praying. Trump is simply carrying on the tradition started by George Washington.

      “Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large.

      And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.”

    North Carolina air traffic controller arrested for having a weapon of mass destruction
    Nov 11th 2017 5:12PM

    An air traffic controller from North Carolina was taken into custody Friday at the Charlotte Douglas International airport after authorities found a pipe bomb and other weapons in his home.

    The FBI confirms that Paul Dandan was charged with possession of a weapon of mass destruction and it was later confirmed that Dandan’s roommate, Derrick Fells, built the bomb.

    Fells had planned to use it in an attack against their neighbor, but backpedaled, giving Dandan the bomb instead. He was still charged with three counts of manufacturing a weapon of mass destruction and one count of possession of a weapon of mass destruction.

    The Federal Aviation Administration has since barred Dandan from the airport and confirms that he would’ve had no access to any aircraft.

        Great! /s “They” have been talking about the extreme vetting and all the rest since
        Sept 12,2001. I’m disgusted.
        There are known gang members working at airports as well. In positions such as aircraft cabin cleaners etc etc etc where anything can be stowed away.
        Nobody, in positions of authority, give a darn. Amazing.
        I used to work as a flight attendant and, unless it’s private, I will no longer fly. The same is true with alot of the pilots and other flt attendants that I am still in touch with.
        It’s a shame.

        Somalies work at the airports. :\

        “An estimated 1,000 Somalis work at the airport, performing functions critical to the operation while earning $8 an hour and often with no access to healthcare. Their jobs range from driving taxis to rental car services, luggage handling and facility services.”

        “At one point, more than 900 Somalis drove taxis at MSP. The story of Somali taxi drivers refusing to transport clients with alcohol became national news in 2007.”

I flew into and out of MN this summer – every single employee I encountered during my travels (hotels, car rental & airport) all employees where Muslims. SAD…..they have taken over a community that was predominantly Scandinavia & Nordic – it’s a planned invasion.

      Wonder if he meant to use it, or thought he had saved his roommate from killing people?

      And isn’t that more prosecutorial over reach? Since when did a pipe bomb get classified as a WMD?

      Actually, the last time I studied the law on pipe bombs, which was about 4 years ago, I found out they are not illegal to make or to possess. No, the literal interpretation of the law is that they are legal. The catch is, you have to notify the IRS! If you fail to tell the IRS, then they are illegal. But people get seriously prosecuted for having them anyway.

    Colossians 3:12-17New King James Version (NKJV)
    Character of the New Man
    12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

  35. Getting ready to jump off for the day but I wanted to post this poem that was going around back in 1990 when I lived in NoVA:

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through DC, not a creature was stirring, except Marion B. The streets were abandoned, the drug dealers slept. But the mayor in his limo, through Southeast he crept. A silver spoon was hung, from his neck with great care. In hopes that Charles Lewis soon would be there. When, all at once, there arose such a clatter. He halted his limo to see what was the matter. And what, to his wandering eyes should appear, but a pile of white powder, a mountain of cheer. He jumped from the limo, lickety-split. Five minutes later, the mayor was lit. He snorted and shoveled that coke up his nose. His eyes were all bloodshot and glowed like a rose. Back to the limo, he ran like a flash. “Now that that’s gone, let’s go home to MY stash!” I heard him exclaim, (with no hint of strife). “I’ll snort if I like, I’M MAYOR FOR LIFE!”

    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.

    I suddenly have no vertical scroll bar ‘indicator’ on the right hand side of my CTH page – the little dark bar you can move up and down that indicates whether you’re at the top, middle or bottom of the page. I’m not having the issue on other sites, just this one. I have a Macbook Pro that just updated to the latest OS, and I use Firefox as my browser.

    Anyone have a clue how I can get my vertical scroll bar back? The white scroll area is there, just no smaller bar that I can move up and down with my mouse. I’ve been Googling for an hour and can’t find a solution.
