Tuesday October 30th – 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 †

    What an amazing man!

    FTA – Maj. Gen. Mark McQueen had no sooner retired from the Army — after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan — and started his job as city manager in Florida’s Panama City when it was slammed by a category 4 hurricane.

    Despite McQueen having no municipal experience and having been on the job only two weeks, city leaders said the two-star general is exactly the man they need for the long recovery ahead.

      Hubby and I saw him in person once. We were laughing so hard that we missed many of his jokes.

      The only other person I saw who was as funny was Jackie Mason. He had me in stitches too.

      They don’t make comedians like them any more.

    President Donald Trump has been threatened with death at least 184 times on Twitter, and 179 of those murder threats are still posted on Twitter’s website as of press time Monday evening.

    The threats range from simple commands for others to kill Trump, to stated desires to kill President Trump, to more detailed fantasies and plans to kill the commander in chief.

    certainly hope this isn’t a true indication of where things are heading in Florida

    POLL : Gillum Leads DeSantis By 6 Points In Florida


    Oct 30, 2018

    “The University of Florida poll of likely voters found that Gillum…has 49% of the likely voters, while DeSantis has 43%…”

    article says this is based on phone interviews from Oct 23-26 with 1,051 “likely” voters…with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    a couple of other poll forecasts also mentioned.

    I don’t know much about poll credibility but this is depressing.

    apparently, it’s the Independents who are being swayed.

    On a happy note, my local ISP provider, which is also the local phone company hooked me up with new dsl and and a new router modem. The whole set up should be much more reliable than what I had… So far so good! My internet was dropping out about every 15 minutes, drove me nuts.. The tech found a bad wire, and switched things around… *sighs… The best part is that it will be the same price as what I was paying before… 🙂

          You’re us about 12 months ago before Verizon put a tower up a mile away. For years we had DSL but AT&T got miffed that we were using it for internet and changed ALL of the local DSL access numbers to long distance so we couldn’t use them – can’t do data on long distance unlimited plans.
          There’s been AT&T fiber optic cable buried all over our rural area but AT&T have not hooked anyone up. Rumor has it that the burial was paid for by tax dollars tagged to ‘bring’ (nothing there about connecting to) hi-speed internet.
          We have access to satellite but aside from what the glowing, warm and fuzzy commercials say it’s not all that great. We spend a great deal of time waiting for storms to blow over as the connections go bad when one’s over/south of us.
          We use our smart phones as hot spots at least get the allusion of hi-speed internet.


          • amwick says:

            We have an electric co op… annnnnnnnnd word is they are slowly installing fiber optic. I think you have to have a bunch of people in the neighborhood agree to sign up… or something. I switched over to fiber in Myrtle Beach, basically went from 6 Mbps to 89 Mbps, also at the same price of the slower service. It pays to look around now a days.

              Earlier in September, when I was actually down in Myrtle Beach, I used the cell phone as a hot spot by the community pool…What fun! I also switched my cell phone to the walmart plan, which was about half the cost of verizon. The funny thing is that it uses the verizon network, so there is not any noticeable difference.

    If you’ve been following the story about those two bodies found in the Hudson River, here is the latest.


    MUSLIM HONOR KILLING? Two dead sisters bound together near the Hudson River were Saudi nationals

    he two Muslim sisters, Tala Farea, 16, and her older sister, Rotana Farea, 22, whose bodies were found duct-taped together on the bank of the Hudson River, NY, were Saudi Arabian nationals who were once placed in a shelter after running away from their Fairfax, VA, home.



    • dbethd says:

      My sister knew a Christian family that cared for two, quite young, muslim children. Not sure on the details of why they were caring for them, but I believe they were in foster care because of the horrible living environment. The children didn’t want to go back home. They loved this Christian couple, so the muslim parents agreed for their children to be adopted by this Christian couple (miracle of God).

    South Carolina: Muslim planted bombs all over county, planted bomb in teddy bear
    October 30, 2018 9:37 AM By Robert Spencer

    Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder. Despite the fact that this is a frequently occurring phenomenon, authorities have nowhere shown the slightest degree of interest in studying it.

      Lucille, Wesley Dallas Ayers – sounds very M.E. to me. 🙄 BTW, “Despite the fact that this is a frequently occurring phenomenon, authorities have nowhere shown the slightest degree of interest in studying it.” My memory is foggy but didn’t someone or a group of people in the FBI (Mueller) delete or scrub a training manual which thoroughly discussed the issue of M.E. terrorists within the US, etc.?

          Yes, it was Mueller while he was FBI Director that ordered a database of 50,000-100,000 “sketchy” Moslems in the US to be destroyed. I don’t have a link handy for that one.

          He also ordered all FBI training materials to be purged of militant Islamic tactics, etc. This was a problem nationwide for more than the FBI, because most LE Academies across the US use FBI material in their training.


        • BigMamaTEA says:

          YES…..Philip Haney (who helped to originally write/document that, and was there when Mueller ordered it deleted from the Training Manual) needs a louder voice to publicize it! Swamp media will not talk to him.

        “(Mueller) delete or scrub a training manual which thoroughly discussed the issue of M.E. terrorists within the US, etc.?”

        I did have something. “Senior moments” – I do not remember these hundreds of bookmarks because I don’t get around to them often enough.

        Russia Special Counsel Mueller Worked with Radical Islamist Groups to Purge Anti-Terrorism Training Material Offensive to Muslims


        “….As FBI director, Mueller bent over backwards to please radical Islamist groups and caved into their demands. The agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and curricula after Mueller met with various Islamist organizations, including those with documented ties too terrorism. Among them were two organizations— Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—named by the U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case. CAIR is a terrorist front group with extensive links to foreign and domestic Islamists. It was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine…..”

    Sooooo, lemme get this straight…after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting we’re now being told that ANY criticism of Soros is…antisemitic. So are conservative Jews who criticize him antisemitic? How about Jews who support Trump? How about Soro’s quote that his home was a ” Jewish antisemitic home” antisemitic or being (however marginally) Jewish does he get a pass? Ow…ow…ow…I’m getting a headache.

    This synagogue shooting worked out great for Soros, couldn’t have been better had he planned it (not saying he did) but it sure is shaping up to take the heat off of his treasonous activities. When life hands you lemons, make limene trinken.

    Do you remember the movie called “Field of Dreams”?

    The movie’s baseball diamond and farmhouse are sited at the small city of Dyersville, Iowa.

    Since the month of October is drawing to a close and it is (informally) German-American Heritage Month, the video below is a loving account of the local “German Heritage of Dyersville” created by lifelong residents.

    That particular area of Iowa has a number of towns with several architecturally beautiful Catholic churches, as well.

    Mr. Trump received strong support from the region’s citizens in the 2016 election.

    Quite a combination of topics in one little post!

    Anyhoo….ran into an interesting story today that I thought combined two of my favorites, elephants, and the piano.

    The piano’s dreadfully out of tune, (you can read about it’s rescue from the floods and subsequent partial restoration at the YouTube page), however, the young elephant more than makes up for it. 😀

    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.
