Saturday August 25th – 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 †

    Something I was reminded of last night. I was looking at an old friend’s Facebook page, unfortunately I am going to have to stop doing that, he has a lot of nasty SJW pseudo-liberal type acquaintances.
    One woman was making angry comments that were not even her own thinking, on the topic of illegal border crossing. Another woman tried to explain to her that separating children from people you don’t even know to be the child’s parent is not only necessary, but wise. She told the other woman that people have been caught with children not their own.
    The first woman, the SJW type, actually angrily challenged her on that, because she wasn’t informed of that fact. Imagine getting angry at someone because she’s better informed than you?
    The second woman was more polite than I would have been. I would have told her to actually READ before she opened her yap.

    Here’s what I was reminded of, by that exchange:
    We all remember the rejoicing in the land when Jaycee Dugard was found alive.
    What should not be forgotten is how she was found.
    Two security guards really worth their salt, at a college, become suspicious when a pusillanimous stinking vile angry weirdo showed up with two lovely young girls said to be his daughters.
    These women had wonderful intuition, as well as being excellent and dedicated law enforcement officials.
    They checked into the weirdo’s background. They didn’t have to, it wasn’t technically their job, but they were concerned about the welfare of those two girls, as well as the students on their campus.
    They did the right thing.

    We all know that criminals pass back and forth into Mexico freely, criminals from the USA as well as Mexico, and elsewhere.
    In fact, not using the official border crossings is not only a crime in itself, the people who cross illegally are extremely likely to have been criminals already, before they crossed.
    It’s just the way it is, undeniably fact. We know this.

    So, those tasked with protecting our border, when they come across someone suspicious, shady, probably dirty, and furtive, should be less diligent than those college security guards were? Given the knowledge of how many felons, violent felons, and human traffickers use that means of entering the country? REALLY? Just leave the small child that they claim is theirs, in their custody?
    Does anyone think that is the wise, moral, caring thing to do?
    I don’t.

      You can see his knee. 🙂 (I’m always amazed by how four legged animals legs are like our arms and legs, just the joints are higher up or father down.)

    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.
