Friday February 22nd – 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 †

      Packed in like sardines. Every block will have at least one noisy family that ruins the peace and quiet for everyone. No thanks. Looks like a loony liberal haven.

        I have never wanted to live in a big city, or even in an apartment. I have to now because of circumstances. It is pretty quiet. But, a Hispanic couple, who seem very nice, moved in to the apt at the other end of the building a while back and she plays music at decibels that must be pealing the paint off the walls…….all day long. There aren’t many children. I like children, but I don’t want to be bothered by other people’s children.

        This whole plan looks like a nightmare to me.

    Arkansas passes resolution calling on law enforcement to “suspend contact and outreach” with Hamas-linked CAIR
    February 21, 2019 by Robert Spencer

    The story below is about the Arkansas House passing this resolution, and today the Arkansas Senate has passed it as well. This is most welcome, much needed, and long overdue.

    Pro-Life Movie from GOD’S NOT DEAD Writers Receives R-Rating from MPAA


    “UNPLANNED is an ‘R’ rated film which has no MPAA cautions for profanity, nudity, sex or violence… except for violence directly associated with the abortion process. Ironically, the MPAA seems to be indirectly endorsing the pro-life position: namely that abortion is an act of violence.” They continued, “even more ironically, as a result of the MPAA’s decision to give us a ‘Restricted’ rating, many teenage women in this country who can legally obtain an actual abortion without parental permission will be prohibited from going to see our film containing simulated images of abortion, without obtaining parental permission.”

      Lady Gaga was cavorting with this character even as she was pretending to have a case of the vapors over the Donald Trump “p***y remarks.
      Hypocrite doesn’t begin to cover it as a term for such women in the entertainment industry.

      Bad day for the name Kraft, huh? Of course, Robert Kraft is unrelated to Kraft-Heinz, but John “Herman Munster” Kerry married into the Heinz family. Now, that may have put a hex on the corporation’s future outlook, yes? I mean, it might have just happened by osmosis, for cryin’ out loud! Kerry/Heinz is tied by marriage to the Iranians. Also, he played a major role in the infamous Iranian nuclear deal. Then went there in person without PDJT’s authorization, to try to salvage that deal, certainly a treasonous act! Some folks call it karma, but what goes around comes around! Hope he’s drinking straight ketchup tonight!

    Here’s an interesting analysis from David Gerstman at Legal Insurrection, related to the Washington Posts’s support of nasty antisemite Ilhan Omar:
    I like reading things where someone goes to the trouble to lay out the facts in refutation of a questionable statement.
    I also liked the comments after the article, particularly a couple by “MajorWood” and “Milhouse”.
    Those are my observations about many secular Jews too.

    If Congress approves Reparations for blacks, expect to see me at my local congressman’s office in blackface with my hand out.

      Andy, when I was a kid, I saw parts of that old movie where Jolson sang “Mammy” in blackface. I guess I was as smart as AOC back then, because one day, I saw his picture without the makeup, and sure enough said, “This can’t be Jolson…this guy’s white!” True story. I was quite gullible back in the day.

    Doomsayers have been predicting the “End of the World” or the destruction of the world’s ecosystem in 10 or 12 years ever since the 1960’s at least, when doomsayers became fashionable on the left.
    AOC is just the latest Pied Piper of Doom that has scared some of the most gullible youth of her time. Many probably lose sleep over her ludicrous pronouncements including some of these kids that demanded Sen. Feinstein support the Green New Deal or everyone will die in 10 years.

    The Hieromartyr Peter of Damascus, or the Damascene

    He lived in the 8th century A.D. and served the Christian Faithful as Bishop of Damascus. He spoke out so strongly against islam and the Manichean heresy that the Arabs cut out his tongue and sent him into exile deep in Arabia. But God gave him the power of speech, so that in exile he preached the Gospel and brought many to the Christian faith. He wrote a precious book on tbe spiritual life and died a Confessor and Martyr.

    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.
