Monday May 7th – 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 โ€

    While cruising around on the internet, I discovered an interesting factoid. There was a sole survivor when the Bolsheviks slaughtered the Russian Czar and his family. The survivor was named “Joy.”

    Joy also has it’s own Instagram page.

      Same problem in NOLA. City tried to push an ordinance that would prevent criminal records checks on employment applications and renting. I do believe a howl from the insurance companies help stomp that down though the city doesn’t check. Good thing there is most city employees move so sloooooowly that they’re easy to catch in the act.

      Well, she’s from the ‘black’ side of the house so you can expect to see a more active Company under her or they’d have picked a political hack who’d chair-warm for the remainder of thec term.

      Yeah, I get that at Veterans/Memorial Day displays. I particularly like the: “Did they have M-16s while you were in the military, sir?”
      “No, son, we were just transitioning from pointed sticks to muzzle loaders, I didn’t get to shoot an M-16 until the second week of November, 1965!”

          I know he’s on the way out, he campaigned blasting my Senator (Moss) as he’d been in for twenty years – tooooooo long, he said. He’s been in 40 now.
          Folks in Utah used to be heavily influenced by the LDS Church – if you wanted to know who was going to win you just asked someone in the Church (if you knew someone who’d talk with a Gentile) who was being pushed in the Stake. I wonder if the big influx of heathens and the natives dislike of imported Seanatorial candidates are effecting the vote?

    For New Orlean’s 300 birthday the city got it’s first female mayor, she was sworn in today.
    She’s an overachievder, she comes into office with a criminal fraud investigation for misuse of public funds dogging her. Most pols wait until the sanitary seal’s off the toilet seat before they start grazing at the trough.
    Interesting – she’s looking at reinstituting a violence reduction program that we used to see as an open way to funnel public funds into the hands of innercity ministers to ensure their and their flocks’ loyalties. Not that there aren’t already funds being channeled in those directions, it’s just not as open.
    Ah well, with the horrendous unemployment rates for black males – compounded by their lack of a viable education and the numbers who have criminal records – probably won’t go down much. Actually they play with the stats: when they want them higher to draw Fed $$$ they use just Orleans Parish but when the want them down for political purposes they include the better educated and job-heavy surrounding parishes. They also frequently only use those who’ve applied for welfare and/or employment assistance. Also, those accepting unemployment/welfare who are working cash-only jobs on the side are not counted as ’employed’.
    So there’ll be a honeymoon period where venial and some low-grade mortal sins will be overlooked and political stylets are inserted into the city’s coffers. Excuses will be made, mistakes blamed on getting one’s feet and problems attributed to the previous administration (not all that big a lie). The city was born a swamp and remains so three centuries later.

    New topic:
    I read this headline at Yahoo News, and knew the story was not genuine; I knew there would be some twist to the overall story that renders this to be “fake news.”

    “U.S. abortion clinics face surge of trespassing and blockades.”

    So, they throw out the “emboldened” trope: ” ‘The protesters are feeling emboldened by the political environment and seeing what they could get away with,’ said the federation’s president, Vicki Saporta.”

    Fake news? Sure enough, I discover. This is so predictable. These progressives cannot be honest to save their lives. At “Methodology,” on second page of report, it says: “Building on the updates to our 2016 Violence and Disruption Statistics outreach program, our collection team continued to increase reporting from members. As our reporting rate continues to increase from previous years, we are better able to analyze trends and provide a more comprehensive analysis on the continued harassment and intimidation our members face every day.”

    IOW: this organization underwent a major initiative to have abortion clinics increase their reporting of hassles from pro-life demonstrators, and, surprise, there was an uptick in reports. This is called “surveillance bias.” Do people speed more at the end of the month, or is the Police Department working to hit revenue quotas?

      Is this implying that if Mueller can blackmail or terrorize or bankrupt someone…anyone…to testify that President Trump committed one identifiable crime in his life, the President can be prosecuted…no that can’t be it…I’ve heard it said that Mueller is beyond reproach due to his former U. S. Marine status (I say “former” since that is sort of an insult to a real Marine…while “retired” is not, it being the correct term to use).

    lilbirdee12โ€™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.
