Sunday March 11th – 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 †

    Just re-watched “Active Shooter: America Under Fire” on Showtime, episode 2, San Bernardino

    Really worth a watch, a riveting episode.

    Although near the end there’s some difficult-to-stomach islamo-apologism (“not true muslims”, “chose the wrong passages from the koran”, yada yada).

    Also watched the Orlando episode 5, also pretty well done, a sub-story was the heart-breaking account of one police officer with debilitating PTSD from carrying bodies out. His unit pulled a double-shift because they realized they were being psychologically damaged by the task and didn’t want the next unit to rotate in and be similarly damaged. Very moving.

    Here’s the entire list of episodes, can’t vouch for others I haven’t seen, some may devolve into anti-gun or anti-white screeds. But the San Berdoo and Orlando episodes I watched were pretty even-handed and didn’t go off the deep end to much.

    As always, YMMV

  5. A rare recently hatched Cahow chick can be viewed livestream at this Cornell Lab link. This seabird species was thought to be extinct for 300 years. The parents are beautifully feeding and preening this rare chick in its underground nesting chamber.

    This is the Third Sunday of the Great Fast, or Great Lent, in the Orthodox Christian Church.

    Today’s commemoration is the Veneration of the Precious and Life-giving Cross.

    “Let the whole world venerate the Cross, through which it learned to worship Thee, O Word.”

    Numerous sermons or articles have been written for this day and its significance at this point during the Great Fast. Two of the most profound are by Saint Theodore the Studite (of the Stoudion Monastery in Constantinople) and Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco (+1966). Though separated by several centuries, their sermons provide inspiring theology, including examples of how the Cross was prefigured in the times of the Old Testament leading up to Christ’s Crucifixion and Resurrection. The miracles involving the Cross since then are numberless.

    Among the hymns for this day, and similar days of the Church year, this one is one of the best known: “Save, O Lord, Thy people and bless Thine inheritance; grant Thou to the faithful victory over adversaries, and by the power of Thy Cross do Thou preserve Thy commonwealth.”

        Knew an elderly lady who was obsessed with this. She had been a clerical worker on Patton’s staff at some point. She said his car window would have been open because he had a wet hunting dog in the back seat with him? And that Patton was shot through that window, while his driver was OK
        I don’t know, but Patton was stirring up a hornet’s nest by his objections to communism and handing over so many people and so much territory to Stalin. FDR had communist sympathizers close to him

          She thought Patton was shot by something that broke his neck — not ordinary bullets. I thought about this when I saw a bunch of kids experimenting with a potato gun a few years back… they had made it themselves… (don’t ban potatoes please!)

    Patton is my hero. He’s also Trumps hero. I’ll read his book next after finishing the Churchill WW2 series.

    I asked this question yesterday on one of the tariff threads but no one answered—can anyone tell me or direct me to articles that explain the theft of intellectual property by the Chinese? I read somewhere that it was “built in” to something some how (ahhh old age) and maybe that’s completely wrong, but i want to understand the investigation coming up.

    This is sick!


    Waitrose is selling gender-neutral Mother’s Day cards as retailers reduce their use of the M-word to make today’s celebration more “transgender inclusive”.

    The supermarket chain is selling a “Happy You Day” card in its Mother’s Day range in which the word “mother” does not appear.

      I think we need some form of push back here. I mean, if these people want to celebrate whatever they are, fine. I don’t buy into it, but that’s another battle.

      But to infringe upon MOTHER’S day is rude—it’s culture appropriating lol.

      It diminishes the role mothers (and probably in the future, fathers) play in the lives of children. Perhaps that is the point. They diminished a baby into a “fetus” so its removal would be easier.

    I was having a problem with a mouse. The click was misbehaving. I swapped it with my wife’s spare one. That was great for a week. Then the problem started happening again. I’ve just realised what the problem is. My right index finger is so used to coming to this site and clicking “like”, that it is doing it when I am trying to use a spreadsheet or a mapping program. Please don’t stop posting so much great stuff. Leave me to try and figure out what to do with my index finger. Many thanks to all the great posters here!

    Matthew 22:34-40 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
    34 When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them [a scholar of the law][a] tested him by asking, 36 “Teacher,[b] which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him,[c] “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and the first commandment. 39 The second is like it:[d] You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 [e]The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”

    State to Force Homeschoolers to Submit to Warrantless Home Inspections, Trampling Rights

      This makes me so angry. My best friend was a social worker and she was adamently against homeschooling. When we talked about it, I realized she had an opinion based on the people she worked with every day. Most of them did not take care of their children, when they said they homeschooled, it was just to not have to bother with school, etc. But, the laws that are being brought up now are to control. Problem is, people like my friend who didn’t know what homeschooling is all about will go along with them.

  30. Statute of Limitations expired today for Clapper? That piece of crap lied – I believe twice under oath and admitted to it and SKATES? I’m a reformed AG Sessions doubter, however, he and whoever the else is/was in charge of the DOJ that could have prosecuted this corrupt individual really screwed the pooch on this one. It is despicable and unforgivable and should be grounds for firing the inept people who failed to act. There, I feel better.

    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.
