Friday March 30th – 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 †

    FYI, Youtube is now placing notices under videos from RT, stating they are funded in part of whole by Russia, linking to wikipedia. They provide a way to give feedback on the notice, so I decided to send a note:
    This notice is very patronizing. I don’t want youtube’s opinions on what videos I need to be fearful of due to youtube’s political biases. Viewers going to youtube are already choosing not to use mainstream media content. They are choosing to escape the left’s media bubble. I would appreciate if youtube could leave its failing ideological biases at the door when it comes to users watching videos they choose to. I don’t even agree with the people on this video, but this policy is a way bigger issue. Your policy makers may not have brains, but some of your users do and would like to exercise them without little patronizing notes meant to bias users against political enemies. Please just be a video platform and try to save your politics for dealing with the homeless camp you work next to. Thanks!
    I may be flagged in some way for this, but, hey, maybe someone inside will have to think about what they’re doing.

    We had a ragtag group of demonstrators show up at the State Legislature in Baton Rouge and for the TV cameras (slow news day) in NOLA. Their cause: a $15 an hour minimum wage. I presume the reason thery showed up in NOLA was these demonstrators had minimum wage jobsc and couldn’t afford to get to Baton Rouge. Interesting group though, lotta BGI with some immigrants of unknown status and one fluffy white guy wearing a moth eaten brown beret with a red star on it.

    Not the most articvulate group of social engineers but they were adamant that the holders of these minimum wage positions can’t support themselves or their families. None of the handful of press there bothered to ask why the whiners expected to support themselves or a family off of a job traditionally filled by high school students and folks looking for a part time work. No one asked how the increased pay and costs of increased benefits would effect product prices, making customers rethink their choices, nor did anyone ask why adults with or without families are trying to support families by flipping burgers frather than doing what it takes to get a real job…then, it was a slow news day and this was just a fluff piece.

    It ain’t all fun though, the City’s considering a regulation that would make it mandatory for developers to include low income housing in their middle-to-upper income developments. This move towards Leftist policies that has become more porominent during mayor Landrieu’s reign is mnaking the working class of the city nervous. We’ve seen monuments torn down without a public voice, we’ve seem the PD heavily politicized, seen housing prices skyrocketing, some traditional Mardi Gras krewes dropping out as the permits and various fees have become so expensive (not gto mention city imposed membership requirements on the clubs) and a host of other social engineering that is changing the town into a huge, PC adultish Disneyland. No wonder the exodus across the lake to the North Shore continues unabated.

      So the Leftwingers are imposing “membership requirements” on clubs?

      There goes our FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION.

      [Of course, the Leftwingers have been attacking that for a looong time.]

        City Council told the 100+ years old Mardi Gras krewes that were composed largely of very wealthy old folks that they were too white and, unless the admitted minority members, couldn’t use city facilities or personnel in their parades. As they had to march on city strets and police/sanitary personnel were required they were sortnof screwed. I know that back in the early 80s a coworker who belonged to an oldline krewe said it cost him over $25,000 so one wionders, aside from theb order to open membership, iuf they’d be required to subsidize protected members who couldn’t cough up the big bucks.

      Complements of the Obama administration mandate and regulation requiring low income housing be built in upscale and wealthy neighborhoods. Heck they’re even dropping them off in the middle of farm country and require low income houses be built for them and the art community, where the average home costs $450,000 and joe normal busts his butt to live there and get away from all the crazy. Little did he know it would be following him. Kind of like the Promise program, keeping kids out out of the pipeline to prison and rewarding them with living in a great place without having to work for it.

    Heads up, all, and Sundance: I saw this on another blog. Hungary’s election is coming up. They’ve stood firm against the EU trying to jackboot them into taking hordes of militant Muslim males into their country, and standing with Christ against the heathen onslaught.

    “Mrs. Muse, who is the prayer coordinator for our church, is in contact via e-mail with other churches in our denomination all over the world, taking their prayer requests, etc. This is what she received from one of our churches in Hungary:

    And finally, please pray for the elections in Hungary on April 8. We would like if the current Christian-conservative party would be able to continue their government.

    April 8. Please put the Hungarian Christians on your prayer list.

      Consider it done, Beverly. They’re all on my prayer list as of this hour. Thanks for the heads-up. God bless!

      Schools regularly drug ADHD/overactive styudents, it’s a way for them to deal with these students and avoid a more responsible approach. I know, I spent nearly two years fighting my grandson’s school, they wanted to treat his ADHD with drugs, it took a contact at the Federal DOE and the threat of a lawsuit by a lawyer who specializes in the area to motivate them – he’s doing fine now.
      There’s also the issue of most of these school shooters being on prescribed drugs at the times threy did their shootings. Most of these drugs have FDA warning on them that they have nasty side effects yet we hear about the guns being the causative factor while the drug aspect is dead silent.

    Don’t know if you remember the Alton Sterling shooting by police in Baton Rouge a year ago. Two officers (white) responded to the 911 call regarding a black male waving a gun around outside of a convenience store. When the arrived the confronted Mr Sterling, a black male 6’#” and over 300 pounds, who refused to comply with the officers lawful requests. The officers, believing he had a gun, took him dowm – he continued to resist, they tased him, he didn’t respond. He wrestled with the officers on the ground, he reached for a loaded .38 revolver in his pocket, even when the officer pulled his gun and put it to Mr Sterling and warned him to stop reaching Mr Sterling continued to struggle, Officer Salamoni fired, killing Mr Sterling.
    The POtuS whipped up some heat on this shooting, one could argue it was a chapter in his Ayers-flavored “Kill The Pigs” program, when just a few days later 6 Baton Rouge police officers were shot (3 died) by a black seperatist upset by the Sterling shooting. The black seperatist that shot those six officers is a footnote in history but the BGI in BR has kept up a steady drumbeat of vhate directed at the two officers who shot Sterling. Sterling’s been kept front-and-center as an object of racist killing by the police while those six officers…
    The Louisiana Attorney General conducted a long and detailed investigation and said there wasn’t enough evidence to prosecute the officers. TheFederal DoJ had an investigation that lasted over a year but said there wasn’t enough to prosecute on – and the Feds do these civil rights cases on a wing and a prayer. The toxicology report on Sterling showed he had alcohol, meth, marijuana and possibly opiods in his body – the meth perhaps contributing to his aggressiveness and reilience to the taser.
    This afternoon the Baton Rouge police chief, in a news conference featuring a speech that for all the world sounded professionally written and vetted by lawyers, fired the officer who did the shooting for violations of ‘procedure’ and suspended the other officer involved for three days. He assured us that the firing wasn’t ‘political’ even though the shooting’s been a major issue in the plurailty black community since Sterling was shot – the shooting of the six officers in retaliation having dissolved into nothingness.
    Sterling’s family has said they forgive the shooter but are ghoing to file a civil suit for lotsa money. Forgiveness is one thing but money is quite another. I can’t wait until the civil trial and the issue of Sterling being booze and drug positive and refusing lawful ciommands while fighting officers is handled.

  11. Looks as though Massachusetts will have the first criminal case regarding Bumpfire Stock/machine gun violation.
    “In February, Massachusetts became the first state in the country to ban bump stocks in the wake of last year’s Las Vegas massacre. Officials said Bradley and Jennings are believed to be the first suspects arrested for violation of the ban.

    Are you on twitter, and want to counter-act Media Matters (uber-left group that hires trolls for activism) and now apparently has an association with young David Hogg……..

    TeaPartyPatriots is making it easy for twitterers to tweet support for mass slam by the LittleHogg and his Media Matters paid troll-bots attempting to destroy Laura Ingraham’s career with Fox.

    Log in to your twitter account……as long as you stay on your account, you can tweet one of two different responses to Ingraham’s advertisers. (This has happened repeatedly to conservatives, and the only way it stops is IF We the conservatives push back!
