Monday October 29th – 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 †

    Oh My. This is my fourth attempt to contact The Great and Powerful Social Security Office to make sure they have our new address. My Son is on SSI so therefore, even though I am his rep payee, I can not create an account on the official SS website (that I can’t log into to change my password because it doesn’t recognize my paSSWORD!) so I can’t verify online that his info is the same as mine. I don’t think it is.

    It’s an hour and a half wait.


    • Lucille says:

      Passwords have to be changed often. Unfortunately, they don’t send reminders it’s time to do that. However, if you go to the Social Security site, it should guide you along to completing a change for your account.

      It’s no comfort and it’s sooo frustrating, but this has been put into place because of the humongous amount of fraud by unscrupulous folk from around the world hoping to steal your info and get your benefits.

      If it’s not too far a drive, go directly to your local Social Security office. Granted, you may have to sit there for hours, too.

        As it turned out, even though I did change my address using their website it was not changed the their system. Crazy, right. So the nice man got mine and my son’s info changed and he also unlocked my SS account. And the SS admin will me mailing me my new temp password in the mail! LOL

        It’s maddening to keep experiencing the same slow inefficiency out of the SS Administration. Things got really bad after so many people lost their jobs during the Obama years and were encouraged to sign up for disability. Even the local ‘welfare’ office stopped requiring us to be interviewed each year.

        POTUS could be in office for 20 years and never make a dent into the failures of these bloated government entities.


        • Lucille says:

          Back in the day when my parents collected Social Security, it was so much more simple. They never had the least bit of trouble changing addresses and never in their lives touched a computer. Dad retired in 1967 and Mom in the 70s somewhere. And got to travel all over North America WITHOUT A PASSPORT. LOL! The good old days! Wow, how I miss them and most certainly miss my folks!

    One of our real reporters from Australia, Avi Yemini, confronted a BBC journalist about their claim that only a few hundred people came to support Tommy. As anyone could see, there were 2,000+ people there.

    It was pure fake news — but watch how Avi takes the BBC journalist apart:

      Mmmm, wonder if those “guards” were from the ROP security forces. You notice 1) the producer seemed to follow their orders, and 2) they tried to intimidate Avi by getting into his space.

      The BBC producer is the typical leftie who won’t take responsibility for his employer but falls back on the “I don’t do it personally” meme…which, though may be true, is beside the point considering the left always expects the right to take responsibility for those nuts who try to horn in on legitimate protests and groups.

      Incredible. I studied piano for about 10 years, and I can say with authority that those long runs up and down the keyboard are extremely difficult to play precisely and accurately. I think this young man must have given up sleeping at age 8 or so and spent 20 hours a day practicing from then on. He is truly gifted.

    Much too tall imo.


    • Lucille says:

      That’s great that other nations wish to honor their heroes of freedom and liberty. The significance of the Statue of Liberty to the entire world is, however, beyond anything else.

      How tall is the Statue of Liberty?
      That depends on how you measure it! The height of the Statue of Liberty is 151 ft. from the base to the torch. With the pedestal and foundation included in the measurement, the full height is 305 ft.

      The French public paid $250,000 in 1885. And that is equivalent in purchasing power to $6,506,159.79 in 2018. Couldn’t find the shipping from France and re-assembling costs in the U.S. to add onto that but the whole deal probably is around $7 million in today’s money. The stone pedestal was paid for by American donations, many of them schoolchildren’s pennies.

  11. Well, this is a 5 part response which was blocked from the gateway pundit. The article can be found here.
    the video accompanying it here…it effectively expresses the completely treacherous behavior of Paul Ryan.
    Herein is the first part of my response (1 of 5 – you are suffering it because I’m tired of being unfit for The Gateway PUndit as I sometimes think that Jim goes over the top)’
    part I
    Here is what I KNOW about Paul Ryan.
    2007 campaign for McClean at the RNC: This man was as genuine as could be and was espousing nothing like what he has. He is either a first rate actor or:
    They got to him.
    the argument for that IS the obvious harm and dreadful ramifcations of open borders which his own construction of a huge security border around his property attests to; while his words continue to flow with insipid and illogical propagandized compassion. His own constituents want borders and he does not represent.
    When he agreed to take hte job from Boehner he was not so obviously globalist and elitist.
    He became MUCH wealthier immediately after becoming speaker AND began to espouse the same drivel as Boehner AND Boehner praised him as a protegee…something that had not been as evident prior to the turnover to Ryan.
    Despite the obvious inebriation and dereliction of duty Ryan praised his predecessor to the skies. (cont.)


    • cont (II)
      The reason that this is likely true is tied to what we now know of both the clinton arkancide techniques AND the no less lethal influence of Soros and the globalist tech billionaires and UN crooks.
      With all of the invasion of privacy that was first allowed openly under Bush (who knows how much Cinton had okayed but had to keep under wraps?) we know that virtually all underhanded actions could be used against career politicians who have dipped deeply into the skullduggery and inside information, allowing bribes from the most insidiouus enemies of our country and our morality and our families and our communities and our freedoms.
      Their families, their persons, their reputations and their bankroll are all subject to the same sort of megalomania as more explicitly expressed by Kim Jong Un and more and more by China’s new emperor to be. Soros and these folks all come to believe that theirs is the vision of the future and their wellbeing supersedes our own.
      We are expendable.
      We are to be left defenseless and fight among ourselves while they sit complacently on the sidelines. Once we have annihilated each other they step in to enjoy the spoils. (cont)


      • (cont. III)
        This is hte same tactic USSR Russia has used for decades. Supply weapons and aid to warring factions, but keep most of the military from hand to hand deployment, safeguarding their own resources until their prey is vulnerable.
        Russia is betting on China and sadly so are so many of the Silicon Valley businesses. I have just had confirmed my own is now a part of that. There is investment in China with no immediate means of revenue. Despite that they are being given priority and are being allowed to come in and take priority over many that have a presently more active potential.
        So Ryan is a globalist and his protection from an all too likely threat from those with whom he is allied; vs the PRESENTLY, and recently less likely- due to a traitorous justice system – threat of legal/criminal prosecution is the fence he is straddling. If he betrays the first loss of life is not out of the question. If he CONTINUES to ignore the 2nd he is betting on their side being able to outlast Trump and the nationalists.
        Diversity was what America WAS….with every kind of identity unified by American core values. (cont.)


        • (cont. IV)
          the new diversity is merely a push for identity division, which is why the identity of American citizen of one unified nation and no imposed religion but tolerance for all, are off the table.
          They have borrowed from the Tower of Babel of hte bible.
          As a tower was to be formed to build up to Heaven God put a stop to it by issuing to different groups different languages which prevented them from communicating with each other.
          Political Correctness was the brazen 3rd or 4th advance of globalism/atheism/communism in this country, put there after they had installed all the necessary identity sensibilities and the associative victimhood and propensity for retaliation and vengeance.
          that is to say: A feminist could have no power today had we not eschewed empathy and forgiveness; and instead indoctrinated victim blame and vengeful entitlement based upon gender and a fabricated, FALSE claim of discrimination stemming from traditional marriage, chastity and the sanctity of fidelity and life.
          Political correctness got all of us into such fits of outrage and bewilderment, never knowing what innocent action or statement could be used as provocation for an accusation and persecution.
          This in turn led to guilty until proven innocent and the media has used that to smear anybody who has attempted to interfere with their policies.
          This in turn led to their ability to call the election results.
          And this led naturally to the globalists taking control of the narrative through possession and guidance of all public discourse, most importantly (in my opinion) including activist feminist (and feminists with dormant testosterone,i.e. men apologizing for their masculinity and ceding all power to females due to that) teachers . (cont.)


          • cont. (V and final)
            This unity, AS A NATION, as THIS nation, is their mortal enemy because it is the Judeo Christian ethos ALONE in all of history that insists that no human being has more value than another or more opportunity for potential.
            the great successes of the 20th century were fully aware of the more privileged and their advantage but they took advantage of the open freedom of this nation and competed, more honestly than technology allows for now, to succeed..and they did. Without money. Without degrees. Without having to destroy their competition.
            Globalism does not believe in competition because these people did not gain their power and money through competition. Initially perhaps so for many, but once they were sucked in, competition was out the window because they are the elites and deserving, but we are the riffraff and expendable.
            Ryan had to sell his soul because he chose career politics and got in bed with the snakes.
            He cannot remain influential after he is neutralized by the information that is being gathered to convict these non-representatives.
            Apologies for the length.
            OH GOOD GRIEF…I never gave you the links but just foisted my BOOK VOLUME on you without it.

  18. Still on the right side of the dirt…

    Bossman (former and sadly, current) just sold one of his four (five, I mean, because he just bought another bulding, after he sold ONE OF the restaurants I helped build and then worked in like a kitchen pro) buildings. We emptied it today. Two large van-loads of dry goods, napkins, straws, 10lb cans galore, lots — all kinds — of catering hardware, and everything else you can find in a restaurant owned by a LVL20 packrat/caterer/golfer.

    Oh, goodness, we’re never going to use a tenth of it, in ten more years. O. i said it. O! we’re never going to use any of it. And it will only be shuffled around three other basements (HI!) for nigh on eternity, many, many times.

    I’m so tired of this industry. The owners. GAH. I love them, still. Don’t know why.

    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.
