Tuesday October 9th – 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 †

    Tuesday May 7, 1805
    [Meriwether Lewis]

    A fine morning, set out at an early hour; the drift wood begins to come down in consequence of the river’s rising; the water is somewhat clearer than usual, a circumstance I did not expect on it’s rise at 11 A. M. the wind became so hard that we were compelled to ly by for several hours, one of the small canoes by the bad management of the steersman filled with water and had very nearly sunk; we unloaded her and dryed the baggage; at one we proceed on the wind having in some measure abated.

    the country we passed today on the North side of the river is one of the most beautifull plains we have yet seen, it rises gradually from the river bottom to the hight of 50 or 60 feet, then becoming level as a bowling green. extends back as far as the eye can reach; on the S. side the river hills are more broken and much higher tho’ some little destance back the country becomes level and fertile.

    no appearance of birnt hills coal or pumicestone, that of salts still continue. vegitation appears to have advanced very little since the 28th Ulto.— we continue to see a great number of bald Eagles, I presume they must feed on the carcases of dead anamals, for I see no fishing hawks to supply them with their favorite food. the water of the river is so terbid that no bird wich feeds exclusively on fish can subsist on it; from it’s mouth to this place I have neither seen the blue crested fisher nor a fishing hawk.

    this day we killed 3 Buffaloe 1 Elk & 8 beaver; two of the Buffaloe killed by Capt Clark near our encampment of this evening wer in good order dressed them and saved the meat, the Elk I killed this morning, thought it fat, but on examineation found it so lean that we took the tongue marrowbones and Skin only.

    Last evening, I watched an excellent video interview by Patrick Coffin, radio show host, with Tucker Carlson on 10/2/18. Among the numerous subjects discussed: Middle class (blue collar), Immigration, Republicans & Democrats, Free Speech, Culture, Religion, etc. It’s 39+ mins long but definitely worth viewing.

    On 10/2/18, Tucker’s book: “Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution” was released. I predict it will become a best seller.

    Okay…from Senate tee-vee THIS BILL after bandying about from Sen to House is now back at the senate…..it passed Cloture motion just a while ago. It’s should get vote this week.


    One of the things they do in DC is take an innocuous-bill, like renaming a post office, and turn it into some crominbus stuffed full of pork and all kinds of crap. This one above, is now at 300+ pages. Listening to “debate” post cloture, you start to hear what’s really in it!!!!!

    Right now, on senate tee-vee it’s called “Water Resources Development Bill.”

      “take an innocuous-bill, like renaming a post office, and turn it into some crominbus stuffed full of pork and all kinds of crap.”

      One of my biggest peeves about Washington, District of Corruption. Legislation called “Water Resources Development Bill” should only have items dealing with the title.

      As far as the states, I hate elected politicians names on signs, etc. and appointed state “Commissioners” names plastered on official stationary, etc.

      When politicians and commissioners change, all the signs and stationary are now obsolete and the taxpayers have to fund the waste and cost of the changeover.

    Hollywood is still attacking the Gosnell movie and especially Dean Cain. They are asking for help:

    We need you to help us fight back. We are now in over 600 theaters across the US. The Gosnell Movie is a truly national release and we need to show Hollywood and the mainstream media that there is an appetite for the truth.

    They want Gosnell to fail so we need you to ensure it is a success. It is crucial that the opening weekend is big – Hollywood really pays attention to the opening numbers, so we need you to turn out. Go to http://www.GosnellMovie.com/theaters and check where the film is playing near you. Keep checking the site because even more theaters are going to be added over the next few days. On the individual theaters websites, showtimes and tickets will be posted by tomorrow (Wed). If there is no theater near you we need you to buy tickets anyway. It would be a way to show Hollywood that censorship and bullying don’t work. If we get a big opening weekend it means they have to pay attention and discuss the reality of Gosnell and what he means for America.

    Thank you and with your help this weekend we will end the coverup.

    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.
