Saturday February 24th – 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 †

  1. Today, as I put things in order around our house and then worked down the backlog of laundry, I was pondering how disorienting the last couple of days have been. And then I realized I’d been pulled off target in prayer again.

    Thankfully, this devotional helped to me to find my footing again.

    from the Mirror of Love by Saint Aelred, abbott

    “The perfection of brotherly love lies in the love of one’s enemies. We can find no greater inspiration for this than grateful remembrance of the wonderful patience of Christ.

    He who is more fair than all the sons of men offered his fair face to be spat upon by sinful men; he allowed those eyes that rule the universe to be blindfolded by wicked men; he bared his back to the scourges; he submitted that head which strikes terror in principalities and powers to the sharpness of the thorns; he gave himself up to be mocked and reviled, and at the end endured the cross, the nails, the lance, the gall, the vinegar, remaining always gentle, meek and full of peace.

    In short, he was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and like a lamb before the shearers he kept silent, and did not open his mouth.

    Who could listen to that wonderful prayer, so full of warmth, of love, of unshakable serenity – Father, forgive them – and hesitate to embrace his enemies with overflowing love? Father, he says, forgive them. Is any gentleness, any love, lacking in this prayer?

    Yet he put into it something more. It was not enough to pray for them: he wanted also to make excuses for them. Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. They are great sinners, yes, but they have little judgment; therefore, Father, forgive them. They are nailing me to the cross, but they do not know who it is that they are nailing to the cross: if they had known, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory; therefore, Father, forgive them.

    They think it is a lawbreaker, an impostor claiming to be God, a seducer of the people. I have hidden my face from them, and they do not recognize my glory; therefore, Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.

    If someone wishes to love himself he must not allow himself to be corrupted by indulging his sinful nature. If he wishes to resist the promptings of his sinful nature he must enlarge the whole horizon of his love to contemplate the loving gentleness of the humanity of the Lord.

    Further, if he wishes to savor the joy of brotherly love with greater perfection and delight, he must extend even to his enemies the embrace of true love.

    But if he wishes to prevent this fire of divine love from growing cold because of injuries received, let him keep the eyes of his soul always fixed on the serene patience of his beloved Lord and Savior.”

    New Orlean’s lame duck mayor (operant word: lame) Mitch Landrieu found a spare TV cameraman and gave his take on gun control. As Mitch is out of a job he loses no time in padding his CV with any disaster he can appropriate.
    His main suggestion was getting the CDC to investiogate gun crime/violence as a disease. Well come on Mitch, let’s touch that 3rd rail you Democrats so strenuously avoid: black gun crime. If we’re going to have the CDC study gun violence as a disease let’s have the CDC also study minority gun/violent crime as a disease. Why, after over 50 years of entitlement programs designed to lift the minority population out of ‘poverty and dispair’ do we stillhave such poverty, dispair and…violence? Black gun crime rates in New Orleans far outstrip their percentage of the population and has for decades. One white school shooting gets national attention but we seem to not get that same reaction to minority shootings in major cities by the MSM. Let’s have ab HONEST investigation into why minority communities and families are so broken and account for so much violence. And please, no more ‘they just need access to better education, jobs and wages’. They’ve had access for decades and chage compared to expenditures seems to be lagging.
    Mitch also dropped the factoid that he has a gun – no indication of if its sights cause it to shoot to the left or if it’s just him. He did rag on and on about the dreaded AR-15 and how it had no hunting uses, Hey, Mitch, wanna come go hog hunting with me? I can swap my AR uppers out and shoot 4 different hunting-specific calibers. You can use your Joe Biden approved double barelled shotgun as you crawl through the brush after a feral pig sounder and I’ll take my AR in .458 Socom. See ya on the other side.
    Also interesting was he did not rag on, or even mention, AKs. That’s interesting as in all the years I worked I never went to one thug shooting where an AR was used. That’s not to say there aren’t any but the AK is by far the most favoritest thug gun. The AR is expensive and must be maintained. The AK is cheap and designed to be used by people who haven’t seen anything much more hi-tech than a rock and pointed stick – little maintenance required. Importantly, the AR has a buttstock that can be shortened but NOT removed, it must stay in place as it’s part of the recoil system. When you roll on a thug AK shooting and recover the gun it’s quite common to see the buttstock’s been cut off at the receiver making it shorter and easier to hide and use from a vehicle. Of course that makes an already not too accurate gun harder to use effectively but most thugs couldn’t hit a cow in the ass with a canoe paddle anyway – note the numbers of spent shells at shooting sites.
    Not once did Mitch mention the Ayuh Kay, the most common long gun used in NOLA shootings leaving me to wonder why he attacked the lily-white AR while ignoring the weapon of choice for so much of his Democratic base??? I guerss the CDC study will bring that out…

      I know what you mean about the AK, but that trend had been changing over the past couple of years. The change actually started prior to the drop in AR15 prices. It is now unusual for us to receive a call inquiring about any AK, but the calls for AR’s by the usual suspects has skyrocketed. We also sell far more AR’s and AR pistols to urban youth than ever before. Also, the knowledge base concerning AR’s has improved measurably within the same group.

      I don’t know why, it just is.

        White or black urban youth? We still se vfar far more AKs than ARs. Granted the industry overproduced ARs in anticipation of a Hillary win but around here a cheap AK is still cheaper than a cheap AR. That doesn’t count the ARs stolen from legal owners.

          Black urban youth here are the buyers of all things AR. It use to be AKs, but the demand locally has dried up. Part of the problem is that a lot of crap AKs have hit the market and any self respecting gang banger knows, your gat has to go bang. Another factor I believe is that both the police and the military use them, so they now want them.

          As I said previously, a lot of these youts know their way around ARs, ordering specific calibers, models and accessories. These youts can break down a used AR quickly to check the condition of bolt and bolt carrier and can perform a function check.

          On the other hand, our range has had to post a rule that no one is allowed to shoot an AR at our range if the rifle does not have sights.

          It will be interesting when things get sporty.

      This is called “the medicalization of deviance”. Substance abuse, formerly seen as a moral failing, is now seen as a sickness. Similarly treating “gun violence” as a sickness removes the essential moral imperative of self-defense thereby reducing the distinction between victim and criminal: both are seen as part of the same “sickness”. The ultimate goal of the medicalization of “gun violence” is doing away with the 2nd amendment because it promotes sickness.

        They can’t blame the actors, not after nearly a half century of dragging them into mainline America, so it has to be some inanimate object or a disease they are not responsible for catching.
        Substance abuse is sloewly becoming decriminalized – if not commercialized. If state and local governments could figure a way to make money off of gun sales like they now do marijuana we’d have guns on the kid’s ‘school supplies for the new year’ list. And BTW, howzat draconian gun control in Mexico doing in keeping violence down there? Columbia? Guatemala?

        Let’s see how something like this would play out in the average American school where students aren’t even allowed to physically protect themselves from bullies on school property. A bully physically attacks you you’re supposed to somehow extract yourself from the altercation and quickly get to school officials and report it. After the attackers are questioned and four bandana-wearing thugs swear the single child attacked them the school takes the progressive stance and suspends all involved. Ask me how I know…

        If the school will teach the kids to respond, good, but I think first aid too would be a good choice. If the staff and students can stabilize the injured that’s even better as many, if not most, EMT responders are trained for police to secure the scene before they approach/enter.

      David, thanks for posting this. It’s excellent instruction. Sadly, as we are seeing now in our national media, there are people who would rather see innocents continue to be slaughtered than admit that their pacifist ideology is wrong. Israelis long ago learned that pacifism in the face to mortal danger always guarantees death. What’s being argued here in the US is whether continued pacifism in schools is the luxury we can no longer afford. In school shootings you can either be a monk or a warrior. We need more warriors.

    Billy Graham’s final post to his Facebook page on Tuesday:

    If you went for a walk in the woods, but then decided to wander off the path, and found yourself surrounded by a thicket of thorns and poison ivy, who would you blame? Would you blame the person who built the path? No, of course not. Instead you’d blame yourself if you were honest, because you alone were responsible for wandering from the path.

    “In a far deeper way, this is what happens when we decide to leave God out of our lives. For a time, it may seem like wandering away from Him doesn’t make any difference; it may even seem easier and freer. But eventually it catches up with us—just as wandering off that path and into the thicket caught up with you.” — Billy Graham

  23. Our young are becoming the “useful idiots” of this generation being used by the teachers and schools to support their cause(s) whatever they may be. West Virginia’s public schools were closed Thursday and Friday, as teachers across the state walked out and protested for better pay and benefits from state lawmakers. Students at schools in 12 counties wore purple in solidarity with their teachers. Although the state’s attorney general issued a statement that the work stoppage is unlawful and he was ready to assist state agencies or boards to enforce the law. The teacher are going to walk out again Monday.
    .
    The median household income in West Virginia is $43,000. The average teacher salary is $44,701, according to the National Education Association. They won’t discuss their taxpayer provided retirement and healthcare benefits which most West Virginia households have to pay out of their income.

    On Jan 10, 2012 a West Virginia “mullet wrapper” the WVGazetteMail reported that a national report gave the West Virginia public education system the ninth best grade among states on an annual ranking even though it again scored an “F” in one of the six categories, student achievement. On Jan 24, 2012 the American Legislative Exchange Council National Education Report Card Ranked Massachusetts First and West Virginia last in education.

    Performance doesn’t mean much in our “modern” educational system money does. But we are left with kids that are non thinking uneducated activist that can’t count change. It has to end.

    NY Times seems to be raising the issue of should confessed shooter Cruz be facing the the death penalty rather than life without parole. There’s always the issue of revenge versus justice but I believe that sending him to someplace like Raiford or, even better, Marion for life would be revenge and justice.
    It’s actually less expensive to send someone away for life than try to execute them but you send that sweet, young, white murderer thing to Raiford or Marion and he’ll spend the rest of his life wishing he’d never gotten out of bed that morning. He will revisit the misery he inflicted on the people he murdered and the families he ruined on a daily basis. I know what my jail was like and it’s a piker compared to Raiford and especially Marion.
    They should convict him, give him life without parole and video his time there, showing kids in school exactly what that little slip of social conscience will bring them – they’ll never be able to say that no one warned them.

I’d like to see a bow put on him and he be delivered to Marion on a platter where he can spend decades getting passed around for a pack of cigarettes. That’ll give him plemty of time to relive his high point. Hmmmmm…might like to se a few deputies, a school resource officer and some FBI typesgo with him.

    Can we be perfectly clear about one thing?
    The founders of this country did not create the 2nd Amendment to protect the rights of an American citizen to hunt food and feed his family.
    The founders of this country did not create the 2nd Amendment to protect the rights of an American citizen to shoot at targets.
    The founders of this country did not even create the 2nd Amendment to protect the rights of an American citizen to protect their own property.
    The founders of this country created the 2nd Amendment for only one purpose, to enable the citizens of this country to protect themselves from their government.
    That is the only purpose of the 2nd Amendment.

    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.
