Thursday October 4th – 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 †

    Endorsement on ThinkProgress of new democrat candidate running to unseat Republican Steve King in Iowa’s 4th district. (Based on political party endorsement you can tell how this site leans without reading the article)
    https://thinkprogress.org/jd-scholten-iowa-progressive-populism-steve-king-d40cc899c392/

    At the bottom of the endorsement, this is what made me LOL:
    “We have a problem. And we need your help to solve it.

    ThinkProgress is being targeted by ad networks for producing ‘controversial political content.’

    Because we cover white nationalism and other controversial topics, ThinkProgress has been placed into a category of sites which many advertisers are blocking. ThinkProgress relies on advertising revenue to fund a substantial portion of our work.

    In other words, we are being financially punished for our work exposing racism.

    One thing is certain: We will not change our mission or our approach to the news to bring back advertisers.

    Will you join us?”

    some early ensembles have it veering into Louisiana area.

    others into Paradise

    still others have it further west.

    it’s expected to keep tracking NW til it gets into the GOM…then…a turn eastward.

    experiencing a little shear now but won’t as it heads into GOM.

    Dems didn’t only abuse Kavanaugh, they abused our sense of fair play, they’ve twisted our common sense understandings of right from wrong and wrong into right, They’ve stretched our sense of credulity into incredulity. Decency, dignity and decorum were discarded . They trivialized for their ignoble ends, all women who really have been assaulted. They abused us all.

    I have to sometimes reset my emotions in times like these – replace them with different emotions. This is one of my go to pieces:

    So where is Black Lives Matter and the associative protest marches now that a black police officer has been gunned down by a white shooter?
    And here I thought all black lives mattered. Silly me.

  14. Late to this Party again today..I had to take the The Misses, I had too Run Her too the doctor this Morning,, She is Completely freaked out ATM, (over our situation)..
    Her Blood Pressure was in the Danger Zone..
    The Doctor gave Her a Sedative, to calm Her down..

    Been doing some investigative stuff….
    It’s all, well NO GOOD what I’m finding out..
    i’ll leave it at that..
    Folks may wonder “WHY” I’ve not been commenting in these #ConfirmKavinough threads.. Or participating in the “hoopla” Surrounding it..

    Simple thing, Folks were being “NEGITIVE” last week w/Grassley letting the FIB investigation happen..
    I thought to myself.. Trump has got this..
    As He ALWAYS does..
    Folks He is one or two steps AHEAD..
    Don’t EVER forget this!
    It’s NOT some 64D chess..
    It’s common sense against LUNITICS..
    He gives them rope to hang themselves with..

    Mr. Trump KNOWS they will ALWAYS overplay their hand..
    Hence HIS Success.,.. Over the years..
    THIS Man “planned” for YEARS to “take” the Whitehouse and the Presidency..
    I “admired” Mr. Trump way back in the Early 80’ss…
    I wish I had His “foresight”..

    (I wouldn’t be here Where I am now either) Though, I’m only Human.. Think just for TODAY, & Worry about “Tomorrow”… Well, it has “sucked” living this way & now I’m paying the price..

    Anyway, I’ve stayed outta the **Kavanaugh** Hoopla..
    He is NOT in anyway “Guilty”.. Of ANYTHING..

    Folks if you seriously want too know.. YES, I “saved” if you will TWO Women from, “Gang Rape” in My days..
    One in Hope Mills, N.C. about 1982 or so.. (I’ll not go into details).. The young Lady was ever grateful.. I still remember it as if it was yesterday.. EVEN Though, I was MYSELF drinking ALOT of beer..

    Once Again.. AFTER a “after Hours”, When I resided & Worked in Statesboro, GA.. ((As a
    Auto Tech),, Home of the Georgia Southern university.. I happened, (yes, I was “partying”) with younger folks Whom I made friends with.. (even though I was in My 30’s).. I actually lived “On Campus”, Well bordering it, on Fraternity or Sorority Row..

    After a Football game, GSU “won”, I liked football in them days, I got “invited to a *Party* at this address.. 1777 Chandler Rd, Statesboro, GA ..
    I then STOPPED What was about to happen to a very fine young LADY, knocked out drunk, or Drugged.. I called the University “police”.. Which after that, I was never invited to “Parties” afterwards.. (I’ll not go into details)..
    Though I lived here..
    32.417310, -81.782746 #24…

    Don’t Ask WHY, (It’s the only place My Family could find at the time)..
    Anyways I seen ALOT more than What Ford describes,, (Or the other accuser), and It WAS mostly the WOMEN that were “all out crazy & Seductive”.. At My age, Working on Cars, knowing How to fix them,, I got “hit on” more times than I can count.. Opportunities at every turn.. Ladies would,, how can I say,, They would, set on My … IF I asked at the drop of a Hat,, Or WRENCH, (to fix their Car(s)….)

    (I STAYED FAITHFUL TO MY MISSES)
    I NEVER DONE ANYTHING WITH ANYBODY….
    Yes I “like” beer.. too..

    There ARE, I mean then,, 14-15-16 year Old “girls” that stayed at these “houses” on Fraternity or Sorority Row..
    It was the “IN” thing, Police looked the other way..
    SEX Trafficking if you will.. Young Girls from the Farms “Country Side” wanting to live the “City Life”… Seen it all too often.. Drugs, Beer & Ecstasy..

    I’ll not discuss here in My hometown, here at UNCW… These “KIDS” are NOT Angels..

    The OTHER reason..
    I have Not commented Much… On this Whole SMEAR Campaign on BK..

    The So called DOCTOR FORD is a complete LIAR…
    Now this gets into where, I HURT..
    I used to FEAR, every Wednesday night..
    My Mom & Dad would go bowling on the League.. Over on Ft Bragg..
    Year, 1969~though 1972… I was (almost), SIX years old until almost 8 years of age..
    EVERY WENSDAY NIGHT, Was “Party time via My “babysitter”..
    His NAME was TOM FLOW and partner.. Steve Brett..
    He resides, (too this Day) at 5363 Silver Pine Dr
    Fayetteville, North Carolina.. I lived across the street..
    5364 Silver Pine drive..
    Back then a investigation WAS conducted, (by the then Social services?),, After a friend Whom resided at 5361, (catty corner) tried to kill himself at My age of 8,, even trying to “drive” a Dodge Dart, to get away from everything.. Crashing into the home across the street..

    To this very DAY, I can remember in detail EVERY Wednesday night… Even to what I ate..
    Sights/Sounds/Whom, & even the smells..

    **I HATE ** Aqua Velva,, too this day,, it makes me physically sick..

    Sometimes I wonder if this is WHY, I’ve been “screwed up” in my head..
    I’ve NEVER have told ANYONE except My deceased mother, until now..
    I’ve NEVER told My Dad.. And still haven’t.. My Dad was My, “superman” but He wasn’t there, mostly in Viet Nam during those years..
    I’ll not go into “details” What happened too Me though NOR WILL I EVER forget!..
    (graphic details)..

    These things I experienced throughout My life, (there is MUCH more).. In my younger years I just seemed to attract “Gay guys”..
    I’ve been drugged & RAPED many times until I was about 14.. Until I “caught on” and staying outta Situations that could lead to such events..
    No Wonder My life is such a mess..

    Mr. Sundance.. & Ad Rem.. I know, ya’ll most likely have done a thorough, back-ground check on me..
    I’m HONEST & Forth coming.. in other words,, I’m NOT a scammer..
    Yes, I got “mis-deeds” on My record..
    If you have, OR ANYONE Else..
    Drop Me a e-mail,, ANYTIME, I’m forth coming & honest.. If you have ANY Questions..
    SENC@ec.rr.com..
    All this said..

    THIS is WHY I’ve NOT commented on Mr. Brett Kavanaugh & the surrounding Spectacle..
    **He is INNOCENT**..
    God Bless everyone..
    Sincerely David & Angie..

      We’re praying for y’all. Thank you for having the bravery to get this out. A lot of us (me included) have suffered unspeakable offenses against us as children. I’m outraged at what the dems have done to Brett Kavanaugh, and I believe him to be innocent as well.

    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.

    Prayer for Judge Kavanaugh:

    https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/kavanaugh-v.-ford
    “After watching her husband rip into pro-death senators who used Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in attempts to derail the appointment of her husband to the U.S. Supreme Court, Ashley is asking all people of faith to unite in praying Psalm 40, which reads:”

    “BE PLEASED, O LORD, TO DELIVER ME, LOOK DOWN, O LORD TO HELP ME. LET THEM BE CONFOUNDED AND ASHAMED TOGETHER, THAT SEEK AFTER MY SOUL TO TAKE IT AWAY. LET THEM BE TURNED BACKWARD AND BE ASHAMED THAT DESIRE EVILS TO ME.”

    In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

    Interesting item on the arrest of the alleged “doxxer”: his lawyer is saying he wasn’t doing volunteer work in Jackson Lee’s office, but was working as an intern being paid by an “outside agency”.
    Hmmmmmm.
