General Discussion, Wednesday, April 17, 2019

On April 17, 1937, Daffy Duck makes his first appearance in a Looney Tunes animated short, ‘Porky’s Duck Hunt.’ The plot has Porky Pig and his dog Rover duck hunting, where they run into sneaky Daffy, who thwarts their efforts to bag a bird. In future appearances, Daffy will lose his manic edge and become more of a put-upon everyman, er duck.

This isn’t the first Daffy appearance, but it’s only a few years later, and much better quality video:

    10 beautiful things.

    1) All of the relics in Notre Dame were saved from the flames. Including the crown of thorns.

    ย Jean-Marc Fournier, chaplain of the Paris Fire Brigade,ย rushed straight for the relics housed in the cathedral to rescue the the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns relics from the blazing building on Monday night.ย 

    2) Sunshine.

    3) BBQ Chicken, hush puppies and coleslaw.

    4 ) Heshmat Alaviโ€™s relentless and courageous fight for the people of Iran.

    5) The kiss of life.

    Taken in 1967 by Rocco Morabito,ย this photo called โ€œThe Kiss of Lifeโ€ย shows a utility worker named J.D. Thompson giving mouth-to-mouth to co-worker Randall G. Champion after he went unconscious following contact with a low voltage line. They had been performing routine maintenance when Champion brushed one of the low voltage lines at the very top of the utility pole. His safety harness prevented a fall, and Thompson, who had been ascending below him, quickly reached him and performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. He was unable to perform CPR given the circumstances, but continued breathing into Championโ€™s lungs until he felt a slight pulse, then unbuckled his harness and descended with him on his shoulder. Thompson and another worker administered CPR on the ground, and Champion was moderately revived by the time paramedics arrived, eventually making a full recovery.

    6) Cortez when her Saikat Chakrabarti mind chip fails to engage.

    Her free-styling is worse than Obama.

    (Okay, this one is a 2 for 1 as we also get the Great James Woods tremendous wit.

    She has the brain of a tea biscuit.

    7 ) James Holzhauer who has accumulated $460,479.00 in 8 victories on Jeopardy.

    He is now the second highest monetary winner on Jeopardy.

    He holds the records for 1st, 2nd and 3rd all highest total in a single game.

    James philosophy;

    To me, these are just points on the scoreboard and not actual dollars. That mind-set was very helpful for me.

    8) President Trump is going to be in Green Bay April 27th ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ !

    9) Life

    Let me but live my life from year to year,
    With forward face and unreluctant soul;
    Not hurrying to, nor turning from the goal;
    Not mourning for the things that disappear
    In the dim past, nor holding back in fear
    From what the future veils; but with a whole
    And happy heart, that pays its toll
    To Youth and Age, and travels on with cheer.

    So let the way wind up the hill or down,
    O’er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy:
    Still seeking what I sought when but a boy,
    New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,
    My heart will keep the courage of the quest,
    And hope the road’s last turn will be the best.

    __Henry Van Dyke

    The Betrayal by Judas (scene 5) – 1308-11

    By DUCCIO di Buoninsegna (b.1255, Siena, d.1319, Siena)
    Tempera on wood, 50 x 53 cm, Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, Siena

    Matthew 26:14-16 (The Passion Translation)
    Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
    One of the twelve apostles, Judas the locksmith,[a] went to the leading priests and said, โ€œHow much are you willing to pay me to betray Jesus into your hands?โ€ They agreed to pay him thirty silver coins.[b] Immediately Judas began to scheme and look for an opportunity to betray him.
    Footnotes:
    a. Matthew 26:14 Or โ€œJudah Iscariot.โ€ Iscariot is not his last name or the name of a town. It means โ€œlocksmith.โ€ Iscariot comes from an Aramaic word for โ€œbrass lock.โ€ The one who held the key to the finances of the twelve disciples brazenly wanted to lock up Jesus.
    b. Matthew 26:15 See Zech. 11:12-13. Assuming the thirty pieces of silver were tetradrachms, it would represent about four monthsโ€™ wages of a skilled worker. If the coins were the Roman denarius, it would be about five weeksโ€™ wages. If they were Jewish shekels, it would have been a very modest sum. How could anyone put a monetary value on the life of the glorious Son of God?

    I was watching a show on Acorn TV called Bollywood, about the Indian film industry. It begins with the female narrator attending a screening in a regular movie theater. The first thing that happens before every film screening (she points out) is that everyone in the theater sings the National Anthem of India, as a movie of the Indian flag is projected on the screen. I’d love to see that here.

    NY Times is reporting that scientists have managed to revive the brain cells of dead pigs! So far they’ve managed to resurrect some metabolic functions only, there are so signs of higher levels of functioning such s awareness or intelligence.

    So they’ve managed to create a Democrat. BFD.

    CAIR official: โ€œi wish hitler was alive to f*** up the jewish ppl and add more to the 6 million he killedโ€
    APR 17, 2019 3:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER

    Sadiqq Abu Osman โ€œstates he is CAIR Minnesotaโ€™s Government Affairs Coordinator,โ€ but he doesnโ€™t appear on Hamas-linked CAIR Minnesotaโ€™s Staff page. Has he been fired for his genocidal Jew-hatred? Thatโ€™s unlikely. Remember, CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case โ€” so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.

  14. lilbirdee12โ€™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.

  15. 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.
