Friday May 25th – 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 †

    Hi my American friends,
    Today I am not into politics but my Sister In Law just told me a joke so here is the translation:

    Where are babies coming from?

    Jane is 7 years old, returned from school after her first lesson about babies.
    Mom asks her : How was the lesson?
    Jane answers: James said his father bought him from an orphanage.
    Lilach said her parents bought her overseas.
    Naomi said her she was made in a laboratory.
    Nathan said his parents paid for another women’s womb.
    And what did you say, asked the mother?
    Nothing, I was too shy to say my mother and father are so poor that they made me by themselves…

    Pray for those across the pond, treepers, and be glad we have a codified first amendment:

    Tommy Robinson is now being sent to prison (to die).

    He was arrested for live-streaming outside a courthouse where a muslim rape gang was on trial.

    Within 5 hours of his arrest it’s been reported he had been rail-roaded all the way through to a 13 month prison sentence.

    UK’s prisons are essentially british-domestic al quaeda training camps. A nobody sentenced to a year for putting bacon on the steps of a mosque was murdered while in prison and the British state covered it up.

    As an activist against muslim grooming gangs, I do not expect Robinson to survive.

    Anyone else having problems posting on websites using Discus comments?
    Today non of the Discus comments sites work for me, not PJ Media, Not American Thinker, not Breitbart. Clicking on “comments” or “reply” does nothing. Here I can comment. Thried using a different browser, and recieved a “Disqus does not support that browser message.” My “normal” browser is listed as supported and up until today I could post. Curiously I see no way to contact Discus by e-mail about issues.


    • amwick says:

      Someone mentioned an issue with discus, something about new rules and information you had to supply. I wish I could help, but I don’t use it myself.

      When I tried posting with DISQUS last night I got a box to click on giving them authorization to collect and aggregate any and all of available info on me that’s possible for them to pick up on. Facebook, which I use only for posting at sites that require it, also blocked me without clicking away rights. I didn’t agree so I’m assuming I’ll no longer be able to use DISQUS or Facebook to post anything in future or check any past posting for feedback. I sense this is tied to a general assault on privacy underway currently. It may be the end of the internet as we know it. That I can still post here seems a positive in an otherwise worrisome landscape. Possibly they’ll go ahead and collect info without my permission since Global Governance can do as they please whatever individuals want–but I won’t sign in under duress and click authorization for them to collect any more than they already do. It seems to me a deliberate attempt to stifle civic discourse which may very well be effective for the forces of Eve Isle.

        It is not only DisQus….it reaches into email accounts, entertainment accounts, purchasing accounts….An email that I received this morning….

        “We’re updating our privacy policy in preparation for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) later this month {this morning…yeah, thanks for the advance notice}. Although these updates are sparked by European law,[…] they will apply to everyone.”


        “Facebook and Google received multiple complaints of implementing improper data management approvals Thursday, the first day a new broad European Union law took effect.”

        “The GDPR “is supposed to give users a free choice, whether they agree to data usage or not,” Schrems wrote in complaint filings. “The opposite feeling spread on the screens of many users: Tons of ‘consent boxes’ popped up online or in applications, often combined with a threat, that the service cannot longer be used if user do not consent.”

    After 2.5 hours of morning tennis, I decided to finish some landscaping by planting a small bush. We are ‘sposed to get rain, so I wanted it done. When I pulled out a bag of gardening soil, I noticed a large copperhead right behind it. I had grabbed something about one ft from its head. 😦 Life in the mountains.

    Full disclosure, we kill copperheads. They are just too dangerous.

    I need a nice glass of wine and a nap.

    Happy Friday, long weekend I hope for most people. I always think about the service members in my family. Hmmm

    Woo Hoo! Rain, glorious rain. This is the first substanial rain we’ve had in a month, there are 1/4″ wide drying cracks in parts of my orchard. Normally we’d have had about 4-6″ by now but nada. This should loosen the ground and aid absorption for any big rain we get this weekend.
    I’m happy – just finished laying hay for my garden to preserve moisture and prevent splashback when the first drops fell.

    We need a petition to send to the White House BEGGING President Trump NOT to go to the UK. I’m not convinced that the people in charge of security for the Brits will use due diligence in ferreting out folks who’d like to see our President Trump dead. The new British version of PC precludes judging certain types of people’s motives.

    Dog saves owner by sniffing out Cancer Before she knew she had it

    Dogs have a long history of being man’s best friend. But the story of a Newburyport Police Department officer and her blind dog from Massachusetts, doesn’t merely prove the bond between owner and pet but also proves that dogs are great at detecting illnesses.

    Police officer Megan Tierney was reportedly at home with Dude, her blind border collie/Australian shepherd mix, when he started acting a little strange. According to her, she was lying in bed when Dude suddenly became focused on her chest area, placing a paw on her.

    Tierney turned her attention on the spot Dude was touching and noticed a tissue swell. But to her surprise, a trip to the doctor confirmed that she has stage two triple negative invasive ductal breast cancer. And although finding out you have cancer is never an easy thing to swallow, the police officer said, “Dude found the lump, and we were never so happy because it just meant that we could get it where it was, rather than not knowing.”

    It is known that dogs have a more heightened sense of smell compared to humans. Dude, being a blind dog, has greatly enhanced this particular sense which helped him detect the illness of his owner. Moreover, canines’ olfactory bulbs have 220 million scent receptors; 195 million more than that of humans.

    According to dog-cognition researcher Alexandra Horowitz from Barnard College, dogs can smell odors in parts per trillion. For example, in a million gallons of water, dogs can detect if a teaspoon sugar was mixed into the water. This means their smelling abilities are 100,000 times better than ours. (Related: Dogs can smell lung cancer in humans.)

      I don’t often post here but since last night I no longer have access to all the places I used to express my opinions since I cannot accept the new terms of use at DISQUS, etc. Dissent is being quashed and silenced. Apparently the inevitable time has come. Violence IS coming. Let’s hope it’s properly directed to where it can do some good…if that’s still possible.

    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.

    With the start of Memorial weekend I wish to express some thoughts on serving the country in the military and our President. First it is nice to have people thank you for serving your country as a veteran, but I know a lot of this thanking is virtue signaling. No one thanked me 30 years ago when I was actually in the the Navy serving in the Persian Gulf or for the next 20 years after. But all of the sudden it is vogue to thank a vet. I know it is not because people are more patriotic now. People say “thank you for your service” because it is the politically correct thing to say. Heck it wasn’t too long ago that people were saying the only reason I went into the Navy is because I couldn’t get a civilian job. Smart people stayed out of the military. Being a veteran isn’t always rewarding. Many suffer in poverty and mental illness. Employers don’t go out of their way to give you a job. Most of the true thanks I get is from other veterans. I would rather people thank God and not me.

    Now for those that didn’t serve. It doesn’t matter to me if you didn’t serve in the military. We all have our lives to live and in America we can do that without too much worry about foreign invasion. But I know most people in this country would have served if they were needed. You would have served either by volunteering or being drafted if you were needed. (Yes, I know some great veterans that were drafted). So if anyone asks you why didn’t the President serve in the military you answer them by saying, “he wasn’t needed.” Others served and he has God to thank for that.

      The answer to why PDJT didn’t serve in the military, is because God kept him in “the right place for that time.” He was being educated for the job he now holds. How could PDJT carry the yoke he has now, deal with all the distractions and hardship, and yet achieve what we’ve witnessed.

      Without all of his experiences and the knowledge gained therein, all of his current successes would be unlikely or at the least, much more difficult.

      Military service may build character and show patriotism among other skills perhaps, but it is not going to give one a genius level of negotiating skills regarding real world business problems.
