Monday May 20th – 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 †

    Funny how the local liberal news stations aren’t reporting all the facts about this potential school shooter. He supposedly wore a long coat with the shotgun underneath it and walked in through an unlocked door of a side wing of the school. It’s been reported by a conservative talk show host that school authorities had been forewarned by a couple to the guy’s buddies that he had been very despondent lately and they should keep an eye on him. Yet, they left the side door unlocked!
    In any case, this young idiot was a senior about to graduate soon. Now he won’t. He’ll have to apply for his G.E.D. from jail.
    And nobody is saying whether he’s an anchor baby, a DACA applicant or perhaps an illegal alien.

      Knew a second-grade teacher who was also a contra-dancer. She had a variation on the hug; she would greet the student, the student would greet her, and then she would hold up the hand of the student to twirl around (a dance move) and they would dance into the classroom.
      She was an amazing teacher also. She could sit down and be quiet, without a word, and the entire room would go silent at her unspoken command. Amazing to watch

    Apparently it seems as though the USCongress is on a fast track to raise the smoking age to 21. While they’re at it they should also bring the voting age up to 21. Unfortunately that won’t happen because if they had their way the Democrats would lower the age to vote down to 15.

      Zelenskiy wants a law against “self-enrichment”? dismiss the legislature, call snap elections and have new legislators?

    Do you recall sometime back the posts I made about the poor little Pittie who was set on fire? The dog was named Tommie. He did not survive his injuries. Richmond PD has made an arrest. I am really glad that the jerk who did this crime will be brought to justice. Virginia has a much tougher felony animal abuse law just because of what happened to Tommie, the little pittie who was set ablaze.

    I wish that the same care and concern would be directed towards the unborn, and the just born.

    Roanoke Fire-EMS replace man’s slashed tires for free

    ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) – One kind act led to another when Roanoke Fire-EMS replaced a man’s slashed tires for free. It all started after a woman took safety in a stranger’s car.

    Robin Kegley was enjoying pizza with his friends Friday night. He had no idea what was about to take place.

    “I was very scared, I haven’t slept in two and a half days,” Kegley said.

    A woman rushed into his car at Melrose Towers to take cover as her boyfriend chased her with a knife. The boyfriend began stabbing at the car–into the roof and then at the passenger seat window, where Janine Vandenberg sat.

    “We were in fear for our lives, it was literally God that kept us safe because that was a small car, the windows should’ve broke, but they didn’t, and all of us were very scared we were going to die,” Vandenberg said.

    Another man diverted the boyfriend and police came before anybody could get hurt. But Kegley was left with no way to pay for new tires.

    “I’m on social security disability, and I really don’t have the money to get the tires fixed,” Kegley said.

    That’s when Roanoke Fire-EMS Station #5 stepped in–they stopped by and replaced his tires for free.

    “They all got out there and removed the tires, and the tires they had didn’t fit, so they took them back to the station, put tires on his rims and brought them back and put them back on. This was way far past their call of duty,” Vandenberg said.

    Chief David Hoback of Roanoke Fire-EMS says he didn’t even know his firefighters had replaced the tires until after pictures were posted on social media.

    “Because they really don’t want credit for that, they just want to do the right thing and make a bad situation a little more tolerable,” Chief Hoback said.

    And that’s exactly what they did for Kegley.

    “I just want to say to the fire department and everything, thank you for helping, you’re a blessing,” Kegley said.

    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.

    Creepy Joe even creeped out his wife the other day. She wasn’t having it.
    Only watch from the start to the 1:30 minute mark, the rest is boring.
