Sunday May 26th – 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 †

    To Ponder

    Let me ponder on the action of God the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles:

    1. How the Apostles, led by the Holy Spirit, travelled throughout the world, without means and without friends.

    2. How they brought both rich and poor to the Christian faith by their words, lives, and miracles alone.

    From “The Prologue from Ohrid” by Saint Nikolai (Serbian-born Bishop who reposed in the USA and was a former prisoner at Dachau) for May 13th on the traditional Orthodox Christian Church Calendar.

    Yesterday andy posted a mention of the Andrew Sisters from a time in history marked with love of country and pride in being Americans. A time when Hollywood reflected the mood of patriotism across our nation.

    Here is the Andrew Sisters singing Buggle Boy…

      This Andrews Sisters performance is from Abbott and Costello’s star making turn in early 1941’s, “Buck Privates”. On a budget of $180,000 it was Universal’s largest money maker in 1941 with over $4 million in box office receipts.

    This was written about some time back by Sundance. It seems to have faded away. Was wondering with the current trailer truck load of corruption that could be opened up, why has this remained not discussed. Is it because of the connections of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, Obama, Bain Capital, GOPe, DNC, their stranglehold placed on Puerto Rico natives to remain plantation workers to those that made stupid investments?

    A small gripe.
    This Memorial Day, we should keep in mind that it’s a day to honor and remember the dead, a day often spent in cemeteries.
    It’s been edging into a day to celebrate just about anyone who wears a uniform as a “first responder”.
    Veteran’s Day is for veterans.

    Was anyone a fan of HGTV’s Fixer Upper?

    I came late to the fun, but I loved that show & never tired of reruns.
    Anyone remember the cute little Shotgun House that was free under the condition it was moved to a new location?
    That house has been for sale for awhile for almost a cool million dollars.
    I’m not sure the young couple ever lived in it, but have been renting it out.

      They’re dreamin’. Unless they moved the house to a different city or state there is no way that place is worth 950k. Not in the Waco – Killeen market, that’s for sure. Even the novelty of it having been featured Chip & Jo’s TV show doesn’t make it worth much more than 300K.

        That barn into a home redo the Gaines worked their magic on was being rented out too until neighbors complained. The owners of the barn are now being forced to sell it. I haven’t found an asking price for it. Yet.

    I hadn’t been keeping up with the Smollett mess recently though I did hear that Empire had been cancelled. I went digging for more info this morning. Fox had decided to not bring back Smollett for the next season which airs this Fall. On May 6 TMZ reported that the Empire castmembers were pressuring Fox to bring Smollett back to the show. I guess they figured profiting from playing the race card was more important than having integrity and calling out the POS who caused problems for them. Just a week later, Fox announced that they were cancelling Empire. The season that they have already filmed, or are currently filming, which will air this Fall will be the last. I’m guessing the pressure the castmembers put on Fox was actually an ultimatum and Fox refused to indulge them. If I ran Fox the last season would be an episode in which one of the characters stages a fake racist incident and gets caught and ends up going to prison.

    As usual, the libtards, in this case the black social justice warrior castmembers of Empire, chose a POS as their “victim” and hero. Their judgement is incredibly poor, they are so eager to believe that people are victimized they ignore all of the facts which prove otherwise. They have been wrong every single time, I think. Traythug, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Laquan McDonald, the dude in Minneapolis who pulled his gun out from his waistband, another dude elsewhere who pulled his gun out as he exited his car, and so many more. So many. Honorable mention: the feral mob at the McKinney pool party. Remember that one? I still cheer when I watch the cop take down one of the feral “dime girls” whose welfare mama never taught her to respect authority.

      I felt a wee bit of satisfaction, covfefe, when I read Empire was being cancelled. Okay, more than a wee bit.
      The SJWs don’t mention the same week thug Gentle Giant Michael Brown died five police officers were killed around the country. Obama put a bullseye on every cop in this country. But no one mentions that fact much either.

        The damage continues. I notice that the fake news media frequently broadcasts of “police brutality”. They have to look hard for it but they find it … and never broadcast apologies or retractions when it is revealed later that the cop was in the right. All cops should wear body cams to protect themselves. All conservatives should wear them too, now that I think about it.

        That’s why IMO it’s better for our government agencies to be transparent whenever possible. I think it’s always better for the American public to know the truth than to have to depend on rumors and innuendo.
        It seems to me since MLK Jr died more than half a century ago, we could read the FBI files they kept on him.

      Everything Barr requests will be collected, organized, and evaluated for “national security issues” by Costs’ minions, and then reviewed by him before it is given to the AG. Coats has an unfettered opportunity to elongate the process, vet the materials, and manipulate the content of the end products. His vocal reluctance to fully and faithfully cooperate with Barr is, IMO, a completely transparent effort to thwart the investigative process.

      The President knew this was coming because he insisted, appropriately IMO, that the process follow traditional procedures. He is completely relying on Barr to assure an accurate, complete, and visible exposure of the facts associated with the coup attempt.

      IMO, the legitimacy of the outcome is presently very uncertain.

    CNN seems to be gloating over this being the last Rolling Thunder ride, even skewering Trump for his statement that they WILL be back next year. I suppose CNN will fill in with the Geraldo Rivera Hero War Correspondent Run where Geraldo will draw a map of the route in the sand and mysteriously show up clean and rested at the finish line saying how he came under fire as he ran and reported the race.

    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.

    Just saw some prom pictures of Sasha Obama and I will say she has turned out to be a very beautiful young woman. And she looks absolutely nothing like either of her parents! Maybe in addition to not looking like them she won’t think like them either. One article says she wants to go to University of Michigan. It would be good for her to get away from DC. Pray for Sasha. 🙂 Pray that she can escape from the Dem cult. haha
