Dear KAG: 20200401 Open Thread

Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day. Given the current situation…the jokes write themselves, so….we won’t start any rumors, not even about the camels who are NOT practicing social distancing.

Time for something for the stir crazy. Let’s see…something to look forward to when this is all over.

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

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.

In addition, it is requested that there be no swinging from the chandeliers, celebratory gunfire, messing around with the nuclear weapons, and, please, everyone wash your hands.

And, please, what ever you do, do not walk barefoot across San Francisco.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. Please, venture over there for any such thoughts and comments. This sort of thing is always a possibility on that site:

A few other vital notes:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

Ridiculing the other side, on the other hand…well….

DN 3:14-20, 91-92, 95


King Nebuchadnezzar said:
“Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
that you will not serve my god,
or worship the golden statue that I set up?
Be ready now to fall down and worship the statue I had made,
whenever you hear the sound of the trumpet,
flute, lyre, harp, psaltery, bagpipe,
and all the other musical instruments;
otherwise, you shall be instantly cast into the white-hot furnace;
and who is the God who can deliver you out of my hands?”
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered King Nebuchadnezzar,
“There is no need for us to defend ourselves before you
in this matter.
If our God, whom we serve,
can save us from the white-hot furnace
and from your hands, O king, may he save us!
But even if he will not, know, O king,
that we will not serve your god
or worship the golden statue that you set up.”

King Nebuchadnezzar’s face became livid with utter rage
against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
He ordered the furnace to be heated seven times more than usual
and had some of the strongest men in his army
bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
and cast them into the white-hot furnace.

Nebuchadnezzar rose in haste and asked his nobles,
“Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?”
“Assuredly, O king,” they answered.
“But,” he replied, “I see four men unfettered and unhurt,
walking in the fire, and the fourth looks like a son of God.”
Nebuchadnezzar exclaimed,
“Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
who sent his angel to deliver the servants who trusted in him;
they disobeyed the royal command and yielded their bodies
rather than serve or worship any god
except their own God.”

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. And this week, lots of prayers for those who have the virus, and those who have died due to it are part of daily prayer. Get well soon, Sylvia.

We ready for more “As the Swamp Turns”?

    1. True, we’ve been looking for pretext to take the Maduro Regime down for some time. Panama model used against Noreiga worked and this is similar with added bonus of damaging the Cartels and the Dems 🙂

    2. I don’t think the General was talking to drug cartel pissants today.
      I think he was warning a very different enemy…..

    1. The couch commando, who is amazingly bored and driving me OUT OF MY MIND, heard from his summer gig. They have to make up for lost time in May. I don’t know who is looking forward to this more, him or me.

      I do wish he’d go to one of our other siblings for a bit.

            1. Exactly. Plus, the commutes are a little long.

              Mom and Dad will be 80 this year and both have chronic health issues, etc. Believe me, I’m already cleaning out the house and plotting separate living quarters when I’m no longer needed for housekeeping purposes.

              DRUG CARTEL! (Not that they don’t cooperate)

              “…Federal prosecutors allege train engineer Eduardo Moreno, 44, of San Pedro intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was “suspicious” and did not believe “the ship is what they say it’s for.'”

              The train crashed into a concrete barrier at the end of the track, smashed through a steel barrier and a chain-link fence, slid through one parking lot and then a second lot filled with gravel and hit a second chain-link fence. It came to rest after passing under a ramp leading to the Vincent Thomas Bridge. The train remained in that position Wednesday….”

        1. Good point.

          I forgot he’s gotta be union.

          If I understand union rules, you move up to a larger / longer train with each survived crash. That’s how they get the best qualified to drive the most dangerous loads. It’s all about survivability these days.

          Probably qualifies for hazard pay now, too.

      1. The relentless doom and negativity drove me away.

        Particularly the headlines, designed to send your blood pressure through the roof.

        Blood pressure is much better these days, without BB, without Drudge, without Faux News… 👍

  2. The virus is spreading.
    First we had the Oakland squatter moms.
    Then we had over a dozen homeless squatters in El Serena in LA.
    Now we have homeless breaking in and squatting in vacant homes in Sacramento.
    How many casualties of THIS virus?

    WTF did the term “reclaim” come from? C-19 is being used to forward a number of socialist initiatives that include emptying jails and stealing property from those who own it.

    This is how civil war or at a minimum, local conflicts start. It will get ugly if not nipped soon.

    1. On the bright side, if we make it to the next election the opposition has a lot more ammo. Showing how the dems over reacted to all this can be used against them.

  3. So I am supposed to work in Kansas this weekend. As they passed their lock down this week they also have determined that people from Colorado (and certain other States) maybe infected and must serve a 14 day quarantine if they show up in the State. Unless they are a part of the essential businesses. I am.

    But I am making sure I have bail money ready just in case. One of them troopers or sheriffs sees my Colorado plates then they will be pulling me over. Going to be a fun drive.

  4. Dims have finally revealed the #1 goal of their PLANNEDEMIC….

    Vote by mail.

    Nothing could be more easily manipulated….pallet loads of GOP votes “lost”, and pallet loads of Dim votes “suddenly discovered” “at the last minute”.

    They are plotting theft in full view of the public.

    #1. President Trump’s tie was BABY BLUE AND BABY PINK (Melania @ work?)

    #2. Ambassador Robert O’Brien Said:
    “…Counter the Madero Regime MALIGN ACTIVITIES INCLUDING DRUG TRAFFICKING…Working on a NUMBER of National Security priorities…”

    #3. President Trump Said:
    “…I see things THAT NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE. I SEE REPORTS NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE I met with the group [of military] behind me and said what do you think we can do?….”

    ….

    I DO NOT think this is just about Drug trafficking.
