Thursday August 23rd – 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 don’t know what’s going on, but so many people are acting insane these days. It’s not safe to ride the train any longer.


    Two women beat, slash man for stepping on their feet on subway: police

    He accidentally stepped on her foot — so so she and her friend beat and slashed him.

    That was the wild scene when a 24-year-old man stepped on a woman’s foot on an A train approaching its last stop at the Inwood-207th St. station about 12:10 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said.

    On senate tee-vee……just listening to Richard Burr, right now, this man is delusional. N.C treeps! I know you just re-elected him Burr (RINO-2022) but if we can’t get him put in jail before his term is up……DO NOT relect this man! Start looking for his replacement now.

      I AGREE 100% ,
      Tell me how to help ?
      I have disliked this man for many years , and somehow he keeps pulling the wool over the people of North Carolina eye’s .. As one person , I don’t know how or what other than letter writing to do…. I keep talking to as many people as I can…

        Right now, you could write emails, phone, fax, etc. (Don’t know if that’d do any good) But sometimes it does. This is his 3rd term in the Senate = 18 years. There’s something about that 12th year for a lot of these goons, even if they start out good. Is Burr a heavy drinker by any chance? He has a glossy-look to him like Boehner did.

        That seat comes up again in 2022. Unless something should happen to him, like jail, he’ll be there a while. Tillis, your other senator is better, but this is his first term. For 2018, 1/3 of the states have no senate seat up this election.

    Oh my, you poor Oregon treepers. Sen. Merkley is screaming about “climate chaos” and says the POTUS is implementing a “dirty power plan” on senate tee-vee!!! Prayers.

      Many of us Oregonians are regularly embarrassed by our two extremely liberal Senators, Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden. We can only hope they get washed away by The Red Tide in November.

        Sorry, anyocoregon……that’s not going to happen in 2018……Merkley is up in 2020 and Wyden is up in 2022. The Senate is arranged such that each state has a senate seat that does not come up in one of the 2 yr elections. Yours is one for 2018, mine is too.

        BUT, it is time now to start looking for their challengers! Look first at any possible red State legislators that might want to go to DC……

    And another huge part of the swamp is exposed for all to see because of our VSGPDJT.

    “The president’s point is valid: Maintaining access to top-secret or classified information is how former intelligence officials like Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey and others command millions of dollars from the private sector. A security clearance reportedly yields a salary of up to 15 percent higher compared to the salaries of individuals without clearances for the same position.

    For the more than 4 million private-sector individuals holding clearances, the secretive private intelligence industry is a massive ecosystem, ripe for concealed cronyism.”

    Another beautiful young lady found dead in a ditch. That area is heavily populated by illegal aliens. Too soon to tell who did it, but if it does turn out to be an illegal alien who killed her, I hope it receives national attention as Mollie Tibbetts murders has had.

    Oh just leave them alone! I’m afraid the progs will want to diversify their tribe or something stupid like that!


    Incredible drone footage shows isolated Amazon tribe

    Remarkable drone footage offers a rare glimpse of an isolated tribe in the Brazilian Amazon.

    In the 51-second clip released by FUNAI, the Brazilian government’s Indian Affairs department, tribespeople are shown moving through a deforested area in the jungle and one tribe member appears to be carrying a bow and arrow.

    Back later. Senate is pretty much done with any votes for today, and they won’t be back until Monday. I’m pretty peeved at 2/3 rd’s of them today. Going to let some steam off. (It’s the mini-bus Budget issue)

    A herd of them had flights to catch and they got to vote first. Orin Hatch is blathering on right now to get into the Federal Register.

    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.

    John, who lived in London decided to go golfing in Scotland with his buddy Shawn , so they loaded up John’s minivan and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible downpour so they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.
    “I realize it’s terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I’m recently widowed,” she explained, “and I’m afraid the neighbours will talk if I let you stay in my house.”
    “Don’t worry,” John said. “We’ll be happy to sleep in the barn and if the weather breaks, we’ll be gone at first light.”
    The lady agreed and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.
    Come morning, the weather had cleared so they got on their way and enjoyed a great weekend of golf.
    But about nine months later, John got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out…but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the golf weekend.
    He dropped in on his friend Shawn and asked, “Shawn, do you remember that good-looking widow on the farm we stayed at on our golf holiday in Scotland about 9 months ago?”
    “Yes, I do remember her.” said Shawn.
    “Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?”
    “Well, um, yes.” Shawn said, a little embarrassed about being found out, “I have to admit that I did.”
    “And did you happen to give her my name and address instead of telling her your name?”
    Shawn’s face turned beet red and he said, “Yeah, look, I’m sorry, buddy I’m afraid I did. Why do you ask?”
    “She just died and left me everything.”

    Not the ending you expected, huh?

    Drone footage from July 2018, new border wall being built in New Mexico. The video is about 4 minutes long. It looks kind of skimpy from the drone angles given the vastness of the desert on both sides of it.

    New border wall at Calexico Mexico. Little over 3 minutes long video. Looks to be the same design as the New Mexico wall. This was first posted to you tube about 5 days ago.
