Monday July 9th – 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 †

    I tried to post the #WalkAway video from this woman but get this message on YouTube “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on nudity or sexual content.”

    The woman was so grateful, she decided to tweet a little thank you note to Eric Trump.

    From this moment on, the woman said she and her little nephew were on the receiving end of an onslaught of pure hatred from leftists.

    She received so much hatred, she decided to post a #WalkAway video describing her experience.

    Nothing it too low for today’s Democrats. They even attack a family with a child suffering from cancer simply because they thanked Eric Trump.

    Bernie Sanders is flying commercial today on his way from Burlington to DC. He’s in the back with the normals, not First Class like Clinton’s. Husband texted me that Bernie was not obeying the the crews instructions to airplane mode his tablet.

    I was looking at the Thai coverage and noticed the seals have a facebook page. After checking it out, I was clearing Facebook alerts when I noticed one for a local boy. He is very allergic to MANY foods. He is able to eat ONLY 5 things (1 particular formula, 1 water, locally grown strawberries, local organic grass-fed beef). Here is an article from last year that includes a link to donate $:

    The post I saw on facebook, the formula maker has changed the recipe. He is NOT able to tolerate this new recipe/formula, and so his parents are in a panic asking people to find the OLD formula.

    Here is the facebook post:

    Here is a picture of the new vs old can!

    Also here is the facebook post direct:

    Please consider helping this boy!

      Options below on where to purchase formula and what to look for. Also I was looking at Ebay, but I am hesitant to bid as I don’t want to compete bid with the boy’s parents.

      Some info on Where to find neocate:
      *Ebay- be sure its Neocate DHA/ARA and not neocate syneo or neocate toddler. Also be sure to zoom in on the pictures to make sure the logo is the old one.
      *HyVee – often is in their baby section with other formulas
      *walmart – kept behind the pharmacy counter
      *target – kept behind the pharmacy when they carry it (very hit and miss)
      *Walgreens- hit and miss, most of the times by the formula
      Craigslist/Facebook- make sure to check label
      *home medical stores- VERY expensive!!!!

      Where NOT to get it:
      *Amazon – they use a stock picture so looking at the logo is not reliable

      I used to sit really close to one of the first console color TV sets like that back in the mid-late 1960’s. Supposedly some of them kicked off “excessive” radiation. All I know is that I needed glasses to see the blackboard halfway through 1st grade. By the time I was in 5th grade (1970), I had to start wearing hard contact lenses. My vision had deteriorated to that of an old man, which meant hi-index lenses (expensive) for any eye glasses.

      The TV was long gone, so cannot be tested, but the contacts worked to stop the deterioration. Pretty much the same vision as back then, now that I have been eligible for AARP membership (NO THANK YOU).

        “So, you listen to me. Listen to me! Television is not the truth. Television’s a god-damned amusement park.

        Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business. So if you want the Truth, go to God! Go to your gurus. Go to yourselves! Because that’s the only place you’re ever gonna find any real truth. But, man, you’re never gonna get any truth from us. We’ll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We’ll tell you that, uh, Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker’s house. And no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don’t worry. Just look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he’s gonna win. We’ll tell you any shit you want to hear.

        “We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness. You maniacs. In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion. So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I am speaking to you now. Turn them off!”

          I have already posted the link for Frank Zappa’s “I am the Slime” three or four times this year.So instead, I have this:

          The 23rd Channel
          The TV is my shepherd, I shall not want for entertainment.
          It maketh me to lie down on the sofa.
          It leadeth me away from the Scriptures.
          It destroyeth my soul.
          It leadeth me in the path of sex and violence for the sponsor’s sake.
          Yea, though I walk in the shadow of my Christian responsibilities,
          There will be no interruption,
          For the TV is with me, its cable and remote, they control me.
          It prepareth a commercial before me in the presence of worldliness;
          It anointeth my head with humanism,
          My coveting runneth over.
          Surely laziness and ignorance shall follow me all the days of my life,
          And I shall dwell in the house watching TV forever.

    WHY ARE NOCTILUCENT CLOUDS BLUE? Observers of noctilucent clouds (NLCs) often describe their color as “electric blue.” This high-voltage photo taken July 7th by Pentti Arpalahti of Helsinki, Finland, is a great example:

    But why? What makes these clouds of frosted meteor smoke the color of an electric discharge? It turns out, electricity has nothing to do with it.

    NLCs are blue for two reasons: (1) The clouds consist of tiny ice crystals about the size of particles in cigarette smoke. Cigarette smoke looks blue, too, and for the same reason. Tiny particles scatter blue light better than other colors. (2) Ozone! Research in the 1970s revealed that some of the sunlight hitting noctilucent clouds first passes through Earth’s ozone layer. Ozone tends to scatter red light, while allowing blue to pass. Sunbeams hitting noctilucent clouds have thus been pre-conditioned for blue.

      Do you remember when the Taliban destroyed two huge Buddhas carved into the hillside of Afghanistan’s Bamiyan valley circa 2,000 years ago, hoping to erase all traces of pre-Islamic past? I do. That was in 2001. I thought the Taliban were heathens to blow apart 2,000 years of Buddhist history.

      Dreadful. Simply dreadful news. Now they are trying to erase past traces of Christian history of 1286 years ago.

        Yes, the destruction of competing religious enterprises and monuments is nothing new…example: English King Henry VIII’s ruination of hundreds of Roman Catholic buildings, and routing–many times killing–monks, nuns, etc. The Taliban did their destruction “because they could”, the same as Henry.

        Muslims, though, have a long game and their agenda is the subjugation of us all. When they are in the minority, they lie, cheat, and play victim to gain a toehold among the gullible “tolerant” and await what they think will be ultimate victory no matter how long it takes.

        You recall how many people were up in arms when the Buddhas were destroyed. Front page news worldwide. I doubt more than a handful know of the insult intended toward Charles Martel’s great, momentous victory…and of those who know, even fewer care.

    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.
