Wednesday May 2nd – 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 †

    Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!

    Wednesday of Mid-Pentecost

    “On the Wednesday of Mid-Pentecost, we [the Orthodox Christian Church] commemorate the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ concerning the provenance of His teaching and His Divine origin, whereby He proved that He was the Messiah, and the Mediator and Reconciler of us and the eternal Father.”

    We have been to Paris, and returned safely. The countryside reminded me of PA, rolling hills, farms, but the cliffs were white(ish), like chalk. The city is fancy, statues n’ stuff every which way. The police walk around with automatic weapons, they look very deadly. Overall, we had a bright day, very, very lucky. So, now, at this ripe old age, Husband and I can say,

    We will always have Paris.

    Bon soir!

    Ps a surprise on our river tour. A very familiar face, and I have a pic! 🙂 later, it is almost 10:30pm here.

    Certainly a hint of irony here. It looks like the Justice Department funded a grant to the main group who developed an App to help illegal immigrants.

    A division of the Justice Department awarded at least $206,453 to the National Immigration Law Center, which advises illegal immigrants on their rights. One of the NILC’s projects is United We Dream (for “undocumented immigrants”) United We Dream also receives funds from George Soros .

    OK, y’all, if yer acomin’ to New Orleans for a festival or mugging – or Baton Rouge for HIV or drugs – y’all better be bringin’ yer own Band-Aids and aspirin.
    State legislature ended its session without funding for any of the state-funded or partnered hospitals so the big uns that generally deal with emergency/trauma medicine are already starting to spin up to hand out layoff notices. State-funded medical schools are outta cash to and since the legislature is done the gov has to call a special session to see if there’s any rock or turnip left unsqueezed. That bodes well for private hospitals as those NOLA paients who can’t get treated at the one in town with the multiple Level One trauma centers will be transferred to parish or private hospitals. Don’t be boden’ well for trauma patients though as it increases travel time from NOLA.
    All of the state’s fat-cat connectees have their cut of the state’s cash, most of them are earmarked so while Bubba Pierre’s pork rind recycling center gets cash the hospitals do not. Ditto the huge tax breaks the state’s given to industries and entertainment companies who move into the state, the workers pay taxes but the businesses pay little if any. They get a free ride while the state gets ridden.
    It might help if yuh come to sew some cash into a seam so that if ya gets hurt you can rip it out and weave it at the ER staff – all considered it should get their attention and get you moved ahead of the sickies using insurance – the clerks will be laid off.

    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.

    h/t GateWay Pundit :

    “Now this week more conflict have been uncovered. Big League Politics reports that Mueller worked at the same law firm used by Paul Manafort, the same guy Mueller charged with bogus crimes this past year.”

    “Federal government insiders believe that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein did not have the authority to legally appoint Robert Mueller as special counsel, due to a major glaring conflict of interest in the case.”

    “Robert Mueller worked for WilmerHale ­ the very firm representing Paul Manafort ­ when Rod Rosenstein contacted Mueller to give him the go-ahead to investigate Manafort for suspected Russia ties. That should have come up in any fair (and legally required) background check that Rosenstein should have done on Mueller.”

    “Mueller was a partner at WilmerHale when he switched over to become Special Counsel, and he has brought members of the WilmerHale team over to his federal investigation team.”
