Friday October 5th – 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 †

      You have to be kidding me. Now they’re going to redo their assessment of Kavanaugh because he defended himself against a fraudulent scheme at the hearing?? I pray he is confirmed tomorrow.

    POLK COUNTY, Fla. – The Polk County sheriff is warning of a dangerous new “drug” that’s gaining popularity inside the jail system.

    During a news conference on Tuesday, Sheriff Grady Judd said people are spraying roach poisons, like Raid and Roach Motel, onto paper and smuggling it into county jails. Those papers are then eaten or smoked by inmates as a dangerous way to get high.

    This was the cloture vote (to limit further debate for 30 hrs max) (now some of you will remember previous senators saying “I voted no before I voted yes” We will see tomorrow afternoon.

    Earlier this year I discovered this wild photo. Unfortunately, there was no explanation as to what prompted this event. It is not photoshopped, you can also see the vague image of the flag bearer on the phone screen of a man standing on the left side of the hall. It is clearly a municipal building but that is all apparent.

      We are in a suburb west of Chicago, my son and I were discussing this a short while ago. Surely “Mom” will be collecting millions, the usual story… feral criminal son wandering the streets but now he’s dead, he’s worth a fortune. I haven’t been following the story – it’s wash, rinse, repeat scenario.


      • covfefe999 says:

        She already collected. She cashed in her ghetto lottery ticket in 2016! Just like Traythug’s parents, they went for the money real quick just in case the trial didn’t go their way. And they needed the money.

        I’m happy to see this:

        Second-degree murder does not carry mandatory prison time — offenders can be sentenced to four to 20 years in prison or even receive probation. In Illinois, those convicted of second-degree murder typically serve about half their sentence.

          covfefe999, my son mentioned the possibility of receiving probation and I said even if that is the case, he and his family would have to move out of state – become anonymous somehow. Brought the MIchael Brown, Ferguson, MO., case to mind. I realize Officer Wilson was found to be innocent but clearly, he had to always fear for his family and his own safety. He had to have moved out of state – dunno.

    FTA – I have become a unicorn. My metamorphosis didn’t require a magic spell or potion, or even a trip to a well-reviewed plastic surgeon to add a horn to my head. All it took was Democrats’ treatment of Brett Kavanaugh over the last few weeks to turn me into that elusive creature: a minority, immigrant woman who supports Republicans.

    I moved to the United States from Trinidad and Tobago eight years ago when I married my husband, Christopher, former U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia’s eighth (and, in my opinion, most lovable) child. Some people might read that and think, “Well, that’s no surprise then; Justice Scalia’s daughter-in-law is hardly likely to be anything but Republican!”

    But they would be wrong. I’ve always considered myself politically moderate:

    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:
    “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:”


    In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

    We’re binge watching Treme – couldn’t watch it when it was new, just too soon too raw. Now I’m seeing why so many who were in NOLA for Katrina, especially first responders, HATED the series. Can’t watch more than three episodes without a break and a drink.
