Cover image: Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas debating at Charleston, Illinois on 18th September 1858, 1918 (oil on canvas) by Robert Marshall Root.
In the world of presidential politics, the question “Where’s Hunter [Biden]” can now be replaced with “Where’s Joe Hiden'”?
On Monday, for the TWELFTH time in September alone, Sleepy, Creepy Joe’s campaign manager called a “lid,” meaning he would not be making any public appearances. Here’s his absentee record for the last four weeks.
So, is Joe doing debate prep or is the Scooby van being fitted to deal with whatever is going on with him that the campaign doesn’t want the rest of the world to know? We might find out at the debate tonight…if he shows up.
Will he? Please, put your thoughts in the comments. (If it’s really on, I’ll put up a debate thread tomorrow afternoon.)
Seventeen got on a roll. Here’s the juicy ones…and yes, I’m still sitting back and watching rather than trying to figure out if non-CNN employees are REALLY black hats or if they are just playing them on TV for laser pointer and shiny red ball purposes.

And then seventeen gave us this as a reminder in 4786:
[SPACE LEFT BLANK IN CASE QUE HAS MORE TO SAY]
In preparation for tonight’s festivities…if they happen:
And a reminder to take the pledge:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
And now for the nitty gritty of the Q Tree 5 minute, stand up, Tuesday morning meeting version of the Daily Thread.
Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.
The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out with anyone who happens to still be hanging out there.
This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.
Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
Under normal circumstances, the Scripture reading that appears in this space comes from TODAY’s Mass readings. However, on Sunday, the Second Reading, the one from the New Testament and not the Gospel reading, stood out as one to really remember. My pastor even gave us all homework to read it several times during the week. This is what it’s all about:
1So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.
