Thursday September 13th – 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 †

      We’ve got a lot of pictures of our GSD, border collie or hound-mix on the floor or couch wrapped around our GGS. We’re rural, way out there, but when he began to walk we’d let him be outside as one or more of them would be outside with him making sure he didn’t wander off or something didn’t wander in. As he got older he’d range our on the farm and twice while he was out with the dogs the hound was bitten by moccasins and once tangled with a feral pig.
      Our GGS is 11 now and lives with his mom about 50 miles away but he visits about twice a month for weekends and when he walks in the dogs go wild, takes about 15 minutes for them to calm down. They still sleep with him though, he’ll curl up in bed and at least two of them will set up on the bed with him. Who needs friends when you have dogs?

    You Must Be Born Again
    SEPTEMBER 13, 2018
    John 3:1-16

    Life is like a ladder we climb until we die. It would be a shame if we simply stopped and never progressed. But it could be utterly disastrous if we placed our ladder against the wrong wall and after a lifetime of climbing discovered that we had wasted all the years given to us.

    This may have been how Nicodemus felt after talking to Jesus. He’d climbed to the top rung of religious success in Judaism and was known as “the teacher of Israel” (John 3:10). Yet Jesus told him the only way he would see the kingdom of God was to be born again. All his good works, extensive knowledge, and great accomplishments were worthless. Nicodemus realized immediately that just as he had done nothing to bring about his first birth, he could do nothing to be born again. His hopes for eternal life were dashed.

    Before Nicodemus was ready to hear the good news, he had to be emptied of all his self-confidence and accomplishments in order to see his need for a Savior. His ladder came crashing down, and he had to start afresh with a new birth of the Spirit if he hoped to gain the kingdom of heaven.

    Where have you placed your ladder? Has God ever emptied you so He can fill you up again? Although there’s nothing you can do to be born again—no good works or religious service—there is something you can believe. God wants you to glimpse His holiness and realize how far you are from His perfect standard. Then, if you come broken and contrite to Jesus, believing His death paid your sin debt, you’ll be born again and will someday see the kingdom of heaven.
    Dr. Charles Stanley

    Using Robots to Hunt Aquatic Predators

    Using Robots to Hunt Aquatic Predators

    The applications for robotic technology get inspiration from a number of sources. The latest seems like the crossing of a submarine with the Terminator.

    About 25 years ago, the waters off of Florida’s Atlantic Coast were introduced to an invasive species called the lionfish. Native to the Indo-Pacific region, the fish were probably the result of aquarium owners dumping their tanks. The problem is that lionfish are voracious predators and breeders.

    Equipped with venomous dorsal fins, they not only devour huge juvenile populations of commercially vital grouper, snapper, and shrimp, but females can lay as many as 30,000 eggs every four days. This potent combination has allowed the lionfish to infest waters from Florida to the Bahamas and negatively impact fishing all along the way.

    In response to the lionfish problem, students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts have designed an autonomous underwater robot for hunting the fish. The unit has two special systems. The first is an artificial intelligence-driven computer vision platform that uses a neural software network tied to a database with thousands of images of lionfish other marine inhabitants, like humans.

    This platform allows it to know what to shoot.

    Once a lionfish is detected, a revolving spear holder that works similar to a revolver firearm rotates the next spear into firing position. An elastic band is released to propel the metal spear, which floats. So once it connects with the target, the spears are buoyant enough to float the tip and the lionfish to the surface for collection. This last part is extremely important. Because although it’s a tremendous pest, Lionfish are also considered extremely tasty, with market price fetching upwards of $20/lb. The combined autonomous nature of the robot and floating tips allow for accessing deeper areas than spearfisherman can access, which are also the more popular hiding spots for lionfish.

    Initial testing has only taken place in a pool, but ocean experiments are projected for 2019.

    There are very few in America who have heard about another tragic event during another September besides the 9/11/2001 attacks and the Great Fire of Smyrna in 1922.

    This one happened in 1955 and it was in Constantinople.

    Turkish Muslim rioters set upon the remaining Greek Orthodox population primarily, but not exclusively, with a viciousness that has been compared to the Kristallnacht. This event, however, was on the tail end of the genocide against the Greeks, especially, at the hands of Turkish Muslims.

    Several websites share the details of the destruction of the Christian community.

    This article seems to be one of the better ones.

      We ignore the threat at our own peril.

      A silver lining.

      When a person from this culture encounters Christ and chooses to follow Him, they are the most passionate to serve their King. And they love not their lives, even unto death. (from the book of Revelations.)

    Some of y’all may remember but back in June I sent requests to my Federal rep and a Senator asking they find out from the Department of Homeland Security how many instances of US LEA coming into contact with Mexican military and/or police INSIDE of US territory and how many instances of US LEA being fired upon by Mexican military/police are in their records.
    We’re coming up on four months now with no response so I contacted my Rep’s office. They have my request on record and it’s in the hands of my Rep’s DHS contact but it’s still not been addressed by his DHS contact. It has to go, I’m told, to the Congressional Research Service where the work will be done and what they find will determine our next moves.
    The bureaucracy still lives and breathes.

        I want my Rep and Senator to see what s*** the State’s burying. Some Hollyork folks touched on the issue but it got tamped down and needs to be exposed.
        The ‘Wall haters’ don’t want the truth of what’s going on, and has been going on for a LONG time, on our southern border getting told. Imagine how momma’s and daddy’s Eastern Strip City resident’s denial would be impacted when they find out how deep into US territory Mexican LEA and military assist illegal activities. Think about how they’d feel about Mexican LEA/military firing on US LEA inside of sovereign US territory.
        What’s been going on along that border’s decades old – I can remember the long-gone Bill Jordan talking about his days in the BP on the southern border – what’s old is new again.

            You have to figure that as long as the border is and as desolate as much of it is, buying into the police and military makes the cartel’s life easier. Just look at the Mex/Tex towns the Rio Grande splits and the levels of corruption on the Mex side….of course we’re clean as the driven snow up here.

              Pity, they can’t drag down some of the demorats and RINOs from congress to those “hot” spots while active shootings occur. I didn’t realize (but am not surprised) 2 other BP agents besides Brian Terry were killed… that is 3 too many. Would be great if there were military snipers attached to the BP units.

                Let’s go back some years (well before 911) to when a unit I worked with used to station SF members in ‘hides’ on the border. They’d live in these holes in the ground for a week or more scouting coyotes and mules coming over the border, reporting on them to BP.
                One day a trooper sees a teenaged goat herder from the Merx side on our side, well into our side. There’s no doubt the kid knew where he was, they live there, and the drug/body runners in Mex frequently use the herders as scouts/lookouts.
                Anyway, the kid spots the troop, pulls out a rifle he was carrying and shoots at him. Troop shoots back and kills kid. Uproar in Mexico City and DC kills the program and trooper barely escapes without becoming a sacrificial goat. Border goes back to being a hi-speed, low-drag channel for illegals and dope.

            A very quick search found this:


            Note that we have a Mexican government helicopter, armed and armored. They can’t be unsure of where they are and either they were aware of how low to fly to avoid US radar or US radar or US radar for some reason ignored them. Then there’s the question of why they didn’t have their IFF on..or was it and we ignored it? I know there’s radar watching the border, especially those areas blocked by mountains, there was special radar there.
            Note how the investigation says there are 261 Mexmil/lea crossings between FY 1996 and 2005 – during the height of the post-911 paranoia.
            You don’t see this on MSM though it’s all over the local stations around the border. Wall hell, we need minefields.

  19. CNN over-sampling their latest generic poll: A total of 1,003 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. Among the entire sample, 34% described themselves as Democrats, 25% described themselves as Republicans, and 40% described themselves as independents or members of another party. Gave Dems a 10 point advantage. What a joke!
