Dear KAG: 20191127 Open Thread

Raise your hand(s) if the pies are done! Yeah, they’re not done yet at my house either. But they will be. After all, Friday is pie breakfast day.

Let’s see, Thanksgiving tunes…without getting to religious about it…. How about this??? It’s suitable for background noise for cooking, cleaning, setting the table, drowning out relatives who talk too much….

Okay, so here’s the deal. This is the open thread. This is where we all come to get the news that other Q tree inhabitants think is worth knowing and sharing. Please, post links to any “news” stories quoted, and ask for help if you are stumped as to how to do that. We’re a friendly lot. Someone will be with you shortly, and there is no reason to have to press one for English.

Free speech, and the open exchange and hashing out of ideas is not only allowed, but encouraged. If we all don’t use it, we’re going to lose it. A little incivility goes a long way, though. Everyone here has closely held convictions and values. Insulting others and their way of life…well, just imagine of YOU were the turkey.

Still funny after all these years.

There is absolutely no reason for infighting to result in burning down the tree, house up in the branches and all. Just imagine you are at the the table and have to remind yourself that your siblings push your buttons. It’s rough to temper speech, I know. However, those who would like to slog it out from the comfort of the seat behind your keyboard, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. Please, take it there.

And now for some house keeping:

There are a few rules here in the branches of the Q Tree. Our host, Wolfm00n, outlined them in a post on New Years Day. Please, review these rules from time to time.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

Steve suggests – to be accurate – no shooting at the nuclear weapons, but to be safe about it, don’t event point firearms toward them. I, Deplorable Patriot, bossy chick that I am, request no teasing the animals, pets and wildlife alike. FG&C asks that you wash your hands and take some vitamin C.

Teasing and trolling the lefties and their bastions, on the other hand is a moral imperative.

In the eternal fight against the forces of evil and darkness, unceasing prayer is always needed.

And now a quick story on who wins in the end in this war for the freedom of mankind.

DN 5:1-6, 13-14, 16-17, 23-28
King Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his lords,
with whom he drank.
Under the influence of the wine,
he ordered the gold and silver vessels
which Nebuchadnezzar, his father,
had taken from the temple in Jerusalem,
to be brought in so that the king, his lords,
his wives and his entertainers might drink from them.
When the gold and silver vessels
taken from the house of God in Jerusalem had been brought in,
and while the king, his lords, his wives and his entertainers
were drinking wine from them,
they praised their gods of gold and silver,
bronze and iron, wood and stone.

Suddenly, opposite the lampstand,
the fingers of a human hand appeared,
writing on the plaster of the wall in the king’s palace.
When the king saw the wrist and hand that wrote, his face blanched;
his thoughts terrified him, his hip joints shook,
and his knees knocked.

Then Daniel was brought into the presence of the king.
The king asked him, “Are you the Daniel, the Jewish exile,
whom my father, the king, brought from Judah?
I have heard that the Spirit of God is in you,
that you possess brilliant knowledge and extraordinary wisdom.
I have heard that you can interpret dreams and solve difficulties;
if you are able to read the writing and tell me what it means,
you shall be clothed in purple,
wear a gold collar about your neck,
and be third in the government of the kingdom.”

Daniel answered the king:
“You may keep your gifts, or give your presents to someone else;
but the writing I will read for you, O king,
and tell you what it means.
You have rebelled against the Lord of heaven.
You had the vessels of his temple brought before you,
so that you and your nobles, your wives and your entertainers,
might drink wine from them;
and you praised the gods of silver and gold,
bronze and iron, wood and stone,
that neither see nor hear nor have intelligence.
But the God in whose hand is your life breath
and the whole course of your life, you did not glorify.
By him were the wrist and hand sent, and the writing set down.

“This is the writing that was inscribed:
MENE, TEKEL, and PERES.
These words mean:
MENE, God has numbered your kingdom and put an end to it;
TEKEL, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting;
PERES, your kingdom has been divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

And now, on to the day’s news…..

    1. Nice details here. Trump BACKS THE LAW yet states that he RIGHTLY won’t let it hamstring any of his Constitutional authorities, and will deal with (as in REJECT) those on a case-by-case basis, thus ESCAPING any false Alinsky TRAPS in the legislation, inserted by DEMONCRATS and their CONTROLLED OPPOSITION GOPE.

  1. Gordon Sondland was a complete bust as the Dirty Democrats star witness…he didn’t give them what they wanted so very badly.

    Now they’re coming out of the woodwork to accuse him of sexual misconduct. I obviously don’y know if any of these claims have any merit whatsoever…but don’t you find it odd…and very suspect to say the least, that they waited until after his disappointing (in the Dems eyes) testimony to come forward? Surely these women knew that he was about to testify? This is all so predictable…

    1. What is odd to me, Sondland donated a million bucks to President Trump’s inauguration. Then Sondland is a witness for the D-Rats. Albeit, a witness with no facts to help D-Rats.

      Puzzles my simple mind.

    2. I’m tired of these whiners. They always manage to miraculously find women bellyaching about stuff from decades ago.
      So what if he did come on to them? Slap his face. Knee him but don’t cry about enduring it and hope to become the cnn/msnbc 2 door Ford for 15 minutes of fame now.

      It says as much about their character as it does his in my book. Political mayhem is all the Dimwits can present these days.

    1. She is right up there with Hillary in her lack of self-awareness. Nobody is crying about children at our border. We are not endangering their lives but are giving them comforts and medical care when needed. If their parents (or handlers of some kind) drag them across a continent to get here and we enforce our laws, America is not at fault.

      And what about the millions of unborn children slaughtered every day? Maybe Milano needs to watch a video and see if she feels like crying for them.

    1. Old creepy Joe… methinks Hunter is one that could use some of dear old dad’s wisdom…aw heck , it’s just some words somebody told him to say..creepy crook

      In an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC’s Good Morning America, Biden was asked if he had his own motto for his 2020 run.

      He said: “Make America moral again. Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity of people, treating our people with dignity…
