Thursday June 28th – 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 †

    It may end up easier to watch the recording of the House Judicial Hearing with Rod & Chris. The House is still voting (trying to get a bunch of stuff done to get out of town. Ya’ know…they gotta get their week+ vacay, what with Fourth of July coming up next week!)

    So the Judicial Hearing is still in recess. (Hearings can continue, even without House being in session. At least these upper-level types)

    Another one of life’s little aggravations, which we can do little about:

    AT&T Nearly Triples a Fee On Your Bill to Extract Hundreds of Millions From Customers

    “You probably don’t notice the small “Administrative fee” on your cell phone bill. AT&T is banking on that. Literally. By quietly tripling that small fee, the carrier is set to rake in hundreds of millions.

    AT&T just spent $85 billion to acquire Time-Warner. Anyone who’s ever had to shell out a ton of cash at once knows the first thing you want to do when your savings take that big of a hit is to start looking for ways to tighten your belt. One way AT&T can start making a bit of money back is apparently to slide into your bill and tweak a fee that you probably weren’t going to notice anyway.

    As BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk first noted, your AT&T wireless bill has a line item vaguely called an “administrative fee” that normally costs $0.76 per month. That’s small enough that most people don’t even notice it’s there to begin with. Now, however, AT&T is upping that fee to $1.99 per month. Previously, you would’ve paid a little over $18 over the course of a two-year contract. Now, the fee will amount to nearly $50. Easily almost two monthly payments on your smartphone. Even if that sounds like a small change for you, it’s a massive change for the company…..”

    the Dems are also really pushing the “abolish ICE” movement, too, suddenly.

    Ocasio-Cortez is a big promoter of that.

    After some 10 days of blocking access to an ICE facility in Portland, Oregon federal law enforcement came in today and cleared out the socialist misfits. Local authorities apparently allowed Antifa and the Occupy ICE gang to build themselves a dirty little makeshift compound in downtown Portland. Now it’s adios amigos, there’s a new sheriff in town.

      I tried to find out about this, and all I could find was an article from 2008, when Google declared it dangerous to computers.

      Lucianne.com is pretty tame. I would be good if we could find out from another source what is happening.

      TPR, NO, no one “like sundance” exists.
      the complexity yet clarity of sundance’s essays require reading, imo, for absorption.
      a listener would be have to be an exceptional note taker to even get the jist of what sundance publishes here on a daily basis.
      and this is how misinterpretation happens.
      You don’t just “hear it here”, you understand it here.
      many times a big difference.

          I had help. It was a two person job. We cleaned one big deck, one smaller deck and the whole house. The back, though, was the worst, as you can see. The north facing side gets very little sun, and in this high TN humidity, the mold just seems to grow overnight. At the beginning of last winter, there were just a few spots. By spring, the entire back side of the house was covered with this green slime. My back deck was almost black, now it’s back to the original gorgeous wood. It is really amazing how much we were able to restore. Took us about 4 hours, so, not too bad. Next step is applying a finish to the decks, but I’ve got a crew of teenagers from the youth group at church coming to do that. They should be able to get both decks done in an hour. Yay!

    62 Louisiana Arrests Announced in Child Predator Crackdown

    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana officials arrested 62 people accused of child pornography and child sexual abuse, in a statewide law enforcement effort between March and May.

    Attorney General Jeff Landry’s office announced the arrests Wednesday at an event with federal, state and local agencies. The coordinated effort is known as Operation Broken Heart, part of a national investigative and prevention effort targeting child predators.

    Arrests around Louisiana included for possession, distribution and production of child pornography and other crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children.

    Law enforcement officials warned that parents should closely monitor their children’s use of websites, social media, phone apps and other technology where they can be targeted by predators.

    Landry’s office has posted an online pamphlet with information for parents and children about cyber safety.

    Today is June 28th on the current civil calendar and June 15th on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar.

    Among several Saints who are commemorated today, there are four that will be mentioned below.

    The Holy Prophet Amos reposed in the year 787 Before Christ. His times seem to mirror our own.

    Saint Augustine of Hippo reposed in the year of Our Lord 430. His mother was Saint Monica. Here is an example of the genuine love of a mother for a son who genuinely repented of a sinful life.

    Saint Lazar, the truly pius Prince of Serbia, died on the battlefield at Kosovo in the year 1389 in a bloody struggle to defend Orthodox Christians against the Mohammedan Turks.

    Saint Glicherie, the Confessor of Romania, reposed in the year of Our Lord 1985 after a lifetime of fidelity to the Truth in the face of Communist persecution and imprisonment in Romania. A short account of his life is at the link below.

    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.
