Monday August 20th – 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 †

    There are some cruel and evil people in the world. She fed her dogs but not this one.

    Woman ‘starved her ex’s dog for 30 days and left him tied up to a tree’

    Elizabeth James, the woman accused of starving Champ, has been issued a citation and arrested for animal cruelty. She is currently out on $15,000 bond.

    So so wrong.

    The dog poor dog.

      What would even MAKE her say such a stupid thing?
      Even if you support abortion rights, I never heard anyone else say it’s good for business.
      Who even asked her?
      Don’t her parents have enough money, she has to be out there pretending to earn some herself?


      • 1stgoblyn says:

        She’s planning a run for office so she has to get more recognition. Afterall, the whackier thing you say, the more ‘traffic’ you get. Amirite?


    • covfefe999 says:

      Is she actually claiming that legal abortions caused women to enter the workplace??? Uh, I think the big wave occurred during WWII while all of the men went off to fight.

      And by the way, Chelsea, if you care about women then you should be harshly critical of Islam. Islam is one of the greatest threats to women’s freedom, health, and safety.

      I once saw a white peacock video, I wanted to get one and rent it out for weddings, but then I found out they are really rare.
      It’s just as well, now I don’t have to take care of a peacock.

    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.

    New California State Grievance 29:


    • Dave says:

      I guess I somehow missed the first 28 grievances! If these folks in the video are typical of the population of New California, I see a lot of problems ahead! The “new” state won’t need a governor, legislature, or court system…all government functions will be handled by the condo board of directors in the video!

    I heard a woman say, last evening in church, “prayer isn’t the least you can do; it’s the most you can do.”
