Thursday February 8th – 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 †

    For those not familiar with Ace of Spades website, there are two articles with excellent commentary about the FBI/DOJ scandals you might want to read. Sometimes there is salty language but nothing most adults can’t take.

    Can you imagine what might have happened if Hillary had won the election? She would have been a prime candidate for blackmail by Putin.

    The Russians are a sophisticated adversary. The Russians knew that their government officials were being paid to provide dirt on Trump. They are sophisticated enough to track where the money came from. They had already hacked the DNC. Putin would have had Hillary in his pocket. If Hillary didn’t go along with Putin, he could reveal Hillary rigged the election.

    “Comrade Hillary, you will not object to my annexation of a portion of the Ukraine. If you do, you will be impeached.”

    You can’t tell the players without a score card.

    The whose, who in the anti-Russian Meme development.

    Notice who is funding them.

    The following is an interesting examination of who Putin really is.

    Watch the video, it is worth the time.

    Remember the movie “Being There” when the black woman who raised Chauncy Gardener said:

    “It’s for sure a white man’s world in America. Look here: I raised that boy since he was the size of a piss-ant. And I’ll say right now, he never learned to read and write. No, sir. Had no brains at all. Was stuffed with rice pudding between th’ ears. Shortchanged by the Lord, and dumb as a jackass. Look at him now! Yes, sir, all you’ve gotta be is white in America, to get whatever you want.”

    Look at the Democrat potential candidates for president in 2020. After Chauncy Obama, they seem to think it’s reversed. Deval Patrick, Corey Booker, Kamala Harris and now … Eric Holder. They took one look at Obama and figured anybody could do it.

    The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.
    ~ by Sir Hugh Walpole ~

    A good man died and, as expected, he found himself in a heavenly place.” He was hungry, so he asked the attendant for food.
    “All you have to do is desire it” he was told. But after he had eaten his custom-desired feast, he was lonely. “I want some female companionship,” he told the attendant, and once more he was told he need only desire it. So he desired it and again he was content for a while with his beautiful companion.
    Then he began to feel bored and once more approached the attendant. “This isn’t what I expected” he complained, “I thought one was bored and dissatisfied only in hell,”
    The attendant looked at him and asked, ‘Where do you think you are?”

      Perhaps Senator Paul is forgetting who is President now? We have a man at the helm who loves “on time and under budget” and isn’t going to allow his people to approve ridiculous expenditures–even ones that are presently budgeted. Cuts, cuts and more cuts are part of the Trump Agenda.


      • BigMamaTEA says:

        That misses the point Lucille.

        Once again, as TurtleHead has done over and over again, ad nauseum……..TurtleHead refused to bring the House Appropriation bills (that were passed (regular order) this year) and likes to wait until the last moment, then spring a giant bill, that no one has time to read even if they wanted to, on a must-pass scenario, that actually has never been seen by any Committee, and has been arranged between TurtleHead, Schmuckie, and their possee.

        This all started when TurtleHead presented this ginormous spending bill for two years, (not even the normal one) and tried to pull a fast one and get a vote, without any amendments allowed.

        While I wish this had started Monday night…..(TurtleHead is in charge of what comes to the floor)
        TurtleHead brought this vote this afternoon.

    Grahamnasty is on the Senate floor speaking as if he had nothing to do with all of the C.R.’s from Obie onward!

    I don’t think Lindsay actually listened to Sen. Paul. Paul objected to being handed a 700 page 2 year budget “deal” between leadership in some back room somewhere, that was printed at midnight!

    What this doesn’t tell you is both Grahamnesty and Paul are on the floor……{fight,fight.! ha!)

    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.
