Thursday May 31st – 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 †

    Oregon Bakery Fires Employees For Denying Black Woman Service After Closing

    Two employees of a bakery in Portland, Oregon were fired earlier this month for denying a black woman service because the business had closed.

    “Back To Eden Bakery” released several public apologies and statements following the incident, before letting the employees go. In one Facebook post, the bakery’s co-owner wrote, “We are doing business in a gentrified neighborhood in a racist city within a racist state of a racist country.”

    In one statement, “Back To Eden Bakery” says that according to its own surveillance video, a black woman named “Lillian”, who is well known in the area as a “professional equity activist”, entered at 9:06 p.m., after the bakery’s closing time. Employees had also turned off the “Open” sign, but several customers (all white) who had already ordered were still inside. Two other white women who went to the bakery two minutes before “Lillian”, and were also informed that the business was closed for the night.

    The bakery says “Lillian” left the store briefly and began recording video.

    The bakery’s statement says that even though it does not consider the employees to be racist and that they were following the business’s protocol of closing at 9 p.m., they were fired because “sometimes impact outweighs intent.” The bakery also says in the statement that the way the employees went about denying the woman service, “lacked sensitivity and understanding of the racial implications at work.”

    In the statement “Back To Eden” says the employees were fired because the woman and the “clamoring public” demanded they be fired.

    In one statement, the bakery admitted that the employees did not necessarily do anything wrong, “this is more about how a black woman was made to feel” at the business.

    The bakery has also volunteered to participate in Portland’s second “Reparations Happy Hour”, a black-only event in which whites donate money, and the hosting business hands out $10 bills to all “black, brown, and minority ethnicities” who walk into the business.

        Well, I wouldn’t say that but the white Left over there have lost their minds in self-flagellation, and minorities are sure taking advantage of it!

      Time for those employees to file wrongful discharge claims against the owner. That is a business that should not be in operation.

      Portland has been a goner for years. Well-off and well-fed looking young people were laying all over the sidewalks the last time I was over there and were begging for food and money. It’s a con game they love to force on the public.

      That bakery is a majority part of the problem giving in to the fakery of white guilt. Maybe next time someone will come in and point a gun at the employees and take all the cash register money. Will calling the police make get those employees fired, too? They deserve to go out of business.

    COLORFUL CLOUDS PILE UP ABOVE ALBERTO: Yesterday, May 30th, tropical depression Alberto was spending the last of its strength over Illinois when Chris Moore in the town of Streator looked up at the sky. “I caught these spectacular rainbow-colored rings swirling around a cloud bank on the western edge of the storm,” he says. “The setting sun lit up the wispy clouds from behind.”


    With the setting sun as a backdrop, I caught these spectacular rainbow colored rings around a weakening storm on the western edge of the Alberto remnant.

    These are pileus clouds, and while they may resemble rainbows, they form in a completely different way. To make a pileus cloud, a cumulus cloud must first boil upward, pushing layers of moist air above it where the layers cool and condense to form cloud caps (‘pileus’). Because pileus clouds form very quickly, their internal water droplets tend to be all the same size–the perfect condition for iridescence. Uniform droplets diffract passing sunlight into vivid pastel hues.

    Normally pileus clouds appear on warm summer afternoons when the landscape is festooned with rising cumulous towers. In this case, however, Alberto created the conditions for a late-spring display

    SOLAR WIND ALERT: NOAA forecasters say there is a 60% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms on June 1st when a solar wind stream is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field. The gaseous material is flowing from an equatorial hole in the sun’s atmosphere:

    This is a coronal hole–a region where the sun’s magnetic field has opened up, allowing solar wind to escape. It looks dark in this extreme UV image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory because the hot gas normally contained there is missing. Soon it will be at Earth.

    This coronal hole has been lashing Earth with streams of solar wind approximately once a month since February. It faces us every ~27 days as the sun spins on its axis. On previous occasions, the solar wind speed topped 700 km/s, exciting hot currents of gas in Earth’s upper atmosphere. These currents, in turn, caused apparitions of STEVE seen as far south as the USA. Stay tuned for updates. Free: Aurora Alerts.

    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.
