Friday January 4th – 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 †

    And here we go again (apologies to Dolly Parton), Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee is introducing a bill to have a committee formed that will…once again..study paying reparations for ‘some’ of the damage caused to blacks by slavery.
    One wonders if, considering the decades of welfare, free this, that and the other, those billions we’ve seemingly wasted on black improvement will be deducted from any amounts they consider ‘appropriate’, especially considering the job and schooling that have been free/freely GIVEN away with, by the CBC’s own words, to no avail.

      Oh czar…..I’ve been reading through all the new legislation that’s been filed so far…….I about busted a gut laughing when I came to Sheeelaaaaa!

      This ones, for YOU! ha! (She always makes me laugh. Just when you think, she couldn’t say something more stupid………)

      H.R.40 — 116th Congress (2019-2020) “To address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its subsequent de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes) with 23 co-sponsors.

    I didn’t see anyone else mention this yet, but I’m in St. Louis County and here’s what the new prosecutor did on his first day:

    I did not vote for him. Many people didn’t. That’s the problem. There was no campaign for it. The guy before him had been in office over 20 years. This Wesley Bell guy was only on the Democratic primary election ballot. I’m so ticked that the Republicans didn’t see this coming!

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Somebody passed a link on to me about a father and his school-age daughter who went up into the Great Smokies Park to pick up trash. They didn’t find any trash at the first two trails — then went to an extremely popular trail where they found bags full of trash and stopped when it was getting late and time to go home.

    Was so impressed with them. That’s the spirit!

    I want to call up some of the banks and ask them if the banks have ever provided loans to government employees affected by the shutdown. I’m thinking about the Coast Guard guy who posted about the situation of the Coast Guardsmen yesterday, but it would also apply to park rangers and others. I hope that local citizens can stand up and make sure that all runs smoothly for families in our community, regardless of who their employer is… no need for people to lose homes for the shutdown.

    Scott Adams and this site are my go-to sites for positive Trump news. But now Adams makes a point to talk about Occasional Cortex as the next great thing EVERY single post. I can’t take it anymore. Anyone have a substitute for Scott Adams?

      Oh, and also…the real question…….what are looking for exactly? You looking for the TRUTH, or OPINION, or news with Constitutional / Rule of Law bent…etc.

      Over the many years I’ve been doing this……I have narrowed down a lot, based just on trust over time, or whatever……I follow a lot of different types of blogs, (example legitimate
      Lawyers, or Activist, or entertainment w/ politics….and researchers, and economists, etc. anyway I consider my “home base” to be CTH……but I’m a researcher/activist now, but I want/need dependable opinions on some topics by profession….or whatever.

      But it depends really on what you’re looking for…..Now, also, would like to point out there are podcasts too, which I can just plug into and listen to, while doing other things….oh and also……if you like Scott…..keep in mind Occasional Cortex is a fad right now……and honestly, for her, it’s really sad. She’s not old enough, nor educated enough in the real world, nor the situation the Republic is in, and that she is being used right now…by her OWN side…..like a useful idiot.

      I’ve been watching some of these exact same people for a LONG time now. The demonrats, even before they unmasked their commie-nature, have always had an “attack dog-distraction -tool” out front…….kind of like “look squirrel” don’t look over here to what I, leader, am really doing. They chew them up, then spit them out when they’re done with them. (SanFranNan is on her 17th term = 34years…..not only the 1st female Speaker, but also now the 1st female 2-time Speaker….and she has had a “come to Nan meeting with O/C, or had her minions do so. O/C ran on NOT voting Nan Speaker…..yet she DID!)

      O/C is too inexperienced to see/know this, and relishes her new found celebrity! (and I’ll admit, the meme’s just write themselves!) BUT…….. When the fad begins to fade……and it will…Scott may revert back.
