Thursday May 16th – 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 †

      Fun with language ; this is a great phrase illustrating how easy it is to change meaning with word placement, and also by placing emphasis. Try saying ‘I did not say that’, putting emphasis on each word in turn.

    Ugh! Senate votes take soooooo long…..even when TurtleHead puts a time-limit on the Vote…..it doesn’t work when no one enforces it!!!! (They all know there are several votes today) If they were forced to stay in the seats of their desks, this wouldn’t take as long. Instead they disappear!!!) (Poorly run senate)

    TurtleHead just did the first procedural moves for the next votes for 6 more District Court Judge positions, and another 9th Circuit Judge.

    Now, the District Court Judge votes could happen as early as this afternoon (only two hours required now after Cloture Vote) still 30 hrs on Circuit Court Judges, so if senate follows their M.O. it will be Monday on the 9th Circuit Judge.

    The FBI Used Its Secret Spy Program To Protect Killers, Jail Innocents, And Screw Victims
    An internal FBI spy program reportedly used to surveil the Trump campaign has a long history of being used to protect killers and jail innocents.

      In the last 30 or so years there’ve been a number of murderers who’ve gotten a ‘get out of jail free’ card for ratting, the lives of people are less important than the Bureau’s getting press for making a case. It’s sizzle being sold as steak.

      Louisiana is passing an amendment to it’s anti-abortion bill allowing exceptions for rape and incest. I have an inquiry out asking if the bill mandates that any abortion requested due to alleged rape or incest be referred to the police for investigation before the abortion is approved. So far nothing.

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the ascended Lord Jesus:

    1. How He began His saving work on earth as a simple and humble workman.

    2. How He finished His saving work by His wonderful and glorious Ascension into heaven.

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in the USA and was a former prisoner of Dachau) for May 3rd.

          Neither do I and that’s why I’ll never buy a Volvo, new or used. I won’t financially support a company that denigrates our citizens that way.
          I agree, Volvos are good cars, but I’ll never own one.
          And I have plenty of cars and trucks already. Don’t need any more.
          But I still want a million dollars.

    FTA – Legendary Kiss rocker Gene Simmons visited the Pentagon and White House Thursday.

    At his stop at the Pentagon, Simmons greeted troops and gave a very emotional speech about being a young immigrant child from Israel, choking up as he talked his recently deceased 93-year-old mother’s love of America. Simmons said his mother was a Nazi concentration camp survivor who gave birth to him in Israel before immigrating to the United States. Simmons noted he is from what is known as the Promised Land, but said to take it from him that “America is the Promised Land”.

    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.

      “According to classical Jewish text and most rabbinic interpreters, a developing embryo or fetus is not “an unborn child” or “person,” but has the legal status of an appendage of the pregnant woman. It is part of her body, not a separate person, until the moment that a majority of a viable baby capable of independent life has been born.” – Debra Nussbaum Cohen, “Alabama’s Anti-abortion Law: This Is What Christian Rule Looks Like in America” Ha aretz.com May 16, 2019
