Monday February 26th – 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 †

          Ya think Rush hangs out here? A week or so ago I went on an anti-Rush rant and some newcomer here starting posting all kinds of Rush transcripts trying to prove me wrong and making the case that Rush has always been a Trump supporter.

          Just wondering.

            I doubt he hangs out here- but I’ll bet he knows a lot more about CTH than his halting mention implies.

            I had a pretty solid thought post about Rush’s Bush-loving, NAFTA-loving, Rove-hosting, Cruztard-puffing self a week ago as well.

            Like you, Bob I listen carefully and recall clearly and precisely what Rush said and says. I’m not one bit fooled by his godless Conservatism is jesus come to save our country if we just believe fluff. Substitute jesus never works. Making a god out of an un-codified ideology is self worship.

            America became great because America was good. America will not be saved by anything less than repentance.

            “If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” -God in 2 Chronicles 7:17. Anything less is vane.

            Bob Thoms – Are you referring to me? I’m new (just started in January) and I do listen to Rush every day (mostly via audio replay after 3pm) so occasionally I might be tempted to correct any incorrect assertions about him if they are germane to the topic at hand. Not sure I recall posting transcripts..maybe a link.

    February 26. My only siblings (brothers) birthday. Doug passed away at age 28 from a rare and aggressive lymphatic cancer that took him from healthy to dead in 4 months, despite the heroic efforts of the GREAT Oncologists at Stanford Medical Center. Thank you, Dr. Stan Smith, and all
    the compassionate Nurses.

    Doug would have been 64 today. And yes, he would still be needed (and fed) when he was 64. We would be listening to our multiple vinyl pressings of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club reissues … to determine which engineers remix made it sound best … the Odeon Japanese Red Vinyl repressing:

    or the Mobile Fidelity repressing:

    He, on his self-built Hafler stereo system, with DCM Timewindow speakers (1980’s delight) … me on my classic Mcintosh system built around mono-blocked MC-275’s, C22 preamp, and Spendor Sp100’s … we would be sipping scotch and listening to great vinyl on our “affordable” audiophile systems. Sadly, I will be doing that solo tonight.

    RIP dear brother. Today, you are my devotional

      Awesome memorial post Kenji. I lost a close sister many years ago when she was much too young (43), and I have also found that a certain part of our spirit also leaves us along with our sibling’s passing. A toast and a prayer for our departed loved ones…
      * * *
      Your mention of your excellent audiophile components took me back to the late 1960’s and early 1970’s when I sold and installed high end stereo systems, including McIntosh (Spendor was not prevalent in the USA at that time). I owned a pair of Audio Research Magnaplanar Tympany 1-D speakers, driven by a tube-based Marantz 7C preamp (made in Sun Valley CA) driving a pair of Marantz Model 9 tube-based power amps. No tuner, just a Dual 1019 turntable with an Ortofon cartridge. That was the best vinyl playback system I have ever owned. Since then, my ears have become “Lo-Fi” in my senior years so Hi-Fi is wasted on them.

        You are all so kind with your good wishes and prayers … and you audiophile memories. Thank you for your thoughtful responses. Silly as it sounds, the analog hobby was something wonderful my brother and I shared, and I have kept it alive in my children who now share the vinyl bug with me. I suppose it is very hipsterish of these young adults to be “into vinyl” … but they could have worse hobbies.

    Ok, this high school person, born female and transitioning to male, is able to wrestle as a female even though this person has been receiving testosterone treatments for several years. (She) has just won (her) second state championship title by pummeling all of the normal female athletes in (her) weight division. (She) has requested to wrestle in the male division but the athletics dept/high school insists that (she) wrestle under the gender on (her) birth certificate. Would you want your daughter stepping onto the mat with this person? Unfair and dangerous in my opinion.

All of the reporters are very careful to call Mack (born Mackenzie) a “him” lest they be fired from their jobs, or worse, and yet the school board/athletics department insists that “he” wrestle as a female, bulging muscles and all. “He” hasn’t lost a single match in two years while beating up on normal female athletes who don’t (and wouldn’t want) the benefit of sports enhancing drugs that are banned in all other circumstances.

            The question is, and will be…..Is testosterone-therapy given to a biological female/wanting to be a male…..be “doping?” And then, later, because the testosterone will have to continue life-long……and she/he wants to college wrestle….or Olympics……will that me doping even if she/he wrestles males, that’s still potentially extra testosterone that other males will not be getting…..Is that then doping?

      How is this different from illegal doping? In competitive athletics, it’s not! No steroids, no testosterone, etc. Shoot, the girl might not really be all that into transitioning to male, but the powerful effects of extra testosterone, alone, may be reinforcing a terrible, forever damaging course. These people have a well known mental illness–dysmorphia. They need treatment for that, not chemical and even surgical mutilation.

        There was a lot of real scientific research done on “sex changes” back in the ’60s and ’70s in Europe and at Johns Hopkins Hospital (probably some others) that produced very clear results that changing sexes didn’t solve the patients’ problems and in some instances made them worse, because they gave up a lot of identity in an effort to make an ultimately futile or at least unhelpful change.

        The whole concept is just utterly messed up. Seems to me we need to focus on accepting and extending Christian love to people as they are–boyish girls or girlish boys or whatev. People need to feel reasonably comfortable in their own skins–because it’s their skin, the way God made them. If other people have messed up the way God made them, our efforts should be to help them back to the special place the Creator designed for them, not fake changes that only exacerbate their underlying problems. Just my non-professional 2 cents.

    Stella had a wonderful thread about the passing of Rev. Graham. She had a video of his favorite prayer/meditation. I have been reading/contemplating this simple prayer everyday since. It has touched me on several levels. I don’t know why I started this routine, but it feels good. I would urge others, who are inclined, to give it a shot.

    “Dear God, I’m a sinner. I’m sorry for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I believe Jesus Christ is your Son. I believe He died for my sin and that You raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Jesus, I put my trust in You and I surrender my life to You. Please come into my life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen. “

    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.
