Friday November 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 †

    I want to log a small irritation here because it is generally considered impolite and also is against CTH posting guidelines to do so as a reply to any particular post.

    Although there are several misuses of common words that occur herein almost daily, one that always trips me up and makes me read the containing sentence three times to figure out what was intended, is the errant substitution of the word “are” for “our“.

    The two words are in no way synonymous, and are not pronounced the same.

    However I have heard countless younger people (mostly) mispronounce the plural possessive pronoun “our” because they were not taught how to pronounce it or they are simply too vocally lazy to correctly turn the two-vowel diphthong while speaking. The latter occurs often in some regional and urban dialects in the U.S.

    They (mis)pronounce “our” by saying it the same as saying the alphabet letter “R“.
    But saying “R” is the pronunciation for the word “are” which is the present plural conjugation of the verb “be.”

    The word “our” is pronounced just like “hour“, which has two vowel sounds = “ow” (what you exclaim when you feel a sudden sharp pain), and “er” (as in “harder.”

    We all see and get peeved at the multiple daily misuses of “there“, “their“, and “they’re” when the wrong word is consistently used and confuses the sentence meaning. However, the WordPress auto spell-check sometimes mis-corrects the word if it was originally misspelled. It has happened to me more than once.

    But spell check will not remove “our” and substitute “are” because the wrong word does not fit in context (either way) as long as the associated sentence is anywhere close to being grammatically correct.

    Off soapbox.

    Ominous. They have 2000 fire fighters from all over and no more available. How are they going to get in front of this. How are they going to rest. This is too much.

      One thing that’s very dangerous about driving through a raging fire on both sides of the road is if a large tree topples and blocks the road, the driver may have to back up. And if a tree falls behind him as well, he’s done. Well done.

      Replying to @DailyMail

      We have an entire generation of government raised feral fatherless, angry hopeless kids ready to drop you for looking at them wrong, and we don’t punish them because they have “rights” we say. This wasn’t a problem in the 50’s we kids got assbeat.

      Feral animals. That is how they are raised. No, it might not be their fault, but people have to live around them anyway.

        citizenmom… for decades, gangs have been tolerated in our schools, with bullies beating the sheetz out of fellow students. And nobody with authority to do anything, had any concerns about this.

        Now they extended and beat up the teachers as well as the other students…
        It’s like voter fraud, it should have been stopped a long time ago. It needs to stop NOW. Decent parents are forced to send their children into schools where they are ruled by feral bullies. The laws can be changed to allow families to homeschool their kids using grandparents, aunts and uncles and tutors… we can make it easier for families to escape these hellholes. It’s easier to condemn parents, but I’d like to see more action to help them. As it is, parents can be jailed for failing to send their kids into gang-run schools to be “socialized”


        • auscitizenmom says:

          My criticism is of the feral bullies parents that are not teaching their children right from wrong. You are right. This has been going on so long that the parents don’t even know right from wrong.

            Even if the parents know right from wrong, they are caught in a whipsaw. They are punished if they obey the compulsory schooling law, and punished if their kids are killed or maimed. Literally. Question of a Knoxville Fulton High teacher to a gang kid twenty years ago: “Why did you join a gang?” Answer: “Because they’ll kill me if I don’t”.

            And I don’t know if the name Zaevion Dobson rings a bell, but that young man’s murder stinks of gangs, and so does the murder of his little cousin

            Even in peaceful little Knoxville TN

            The gang rule needs to STOP in Broward County and everyplace else. As above, so below. Let’s have law and order but not half-a$$ed law and order with different rules for powerful people and punishment for the rest of us

    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.

And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
