General Discussion, Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Fifty years ago today, Apollo 11 blasted off into space for a 240,000 mile trip to the moon!

I don’t know where this footage came from, but it’s pretty exciting.

This is actual launch footage:

    • And why do they continue to vote in people who want to destroy their states? Makes no sense.

        At some point in the last 61 years I have had to reconcile myself to the inexplicable and boundless stupidity of many, perhaps even a majority, of people. Not sarcasm, I am serious. As a child and young adult I was really disturbed and confused at how dumb people were.

        I think if I go to hell it will be primarily because I hate stupid people.

        • It boggles the mind. My aunt loves to tell this story about my sister when she was about two years old. She’d overheard my aunt say that she hated dumb illiterate people and my aunt didn’t think it could come back and bite her from voicing it out loud. Anyway, she took my sister to the store and a sales lady came up to ask my aunt if she needed any assistance. My sister looked at the lady and said… I hate dumb illiterate people. The sales lady was somewhat shocked and asked my aunt if she’d heard the child correctly and my aunt said yes… I believe she said that she hates dumb illiterate people. My aunt took my sister and hauled her out of there. That poor sales lady… I feel kind of sorry for her. LOL.

          What many people don’t have is curiosity…a sincere need to know things. They just sort of drip and drab day to day with no deep thoughts or appreciation for what great men and women have expressed and from which we can learn about life, living, religion, politics, you name it.

          I’m not saying that these are not good people. A lot of them are kind, generous, sweet, and a non-inspiring day can be spent with them on occasion which is satisfying. But there is virtually nothing to talk with them about otherwise…no reading matter which is challenging, nothing they’ve viewed on TV which can bring a larger picture to them. They’ve given up on being stretched. It’s downright sad.

    10 smiles

    1) β€œWe don’t have a news media, that’s not the news media, it’s interpretive journalism like interpretive dance only less accurate.__ Chris Plante

    2) Bacon Maple Donuts

    3) The unwitting humor of the Left.

    Beto O’Rourke “In My Administration We Are Going to Make Sure No One Is Criminally Prosecuted for Being a Human Being.”


    4) The Wimbledon men’s final was beautiful tennis.

    5) Straws 😱.

    6) Life is made up of moments.

    I was driving on the highway when this song came up in my song list. I noticed the sunrise just as I heard, The sunrise from a highway, That was not there before

    Warmed my soul.

    7) The magnificent beauty of a field of cotton ready for harvest.

    8) Lady Norman on her Krupps scooter in 1916.

    9) With hapless accompaniment of democrats and RINO’s President Trump has managed to make Ilhan Omar, AO Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, the face of the Democrat Party.

    Man o man this is going to be one amazing election cycle.

    10) Art nouveau buildings in the old town of Riga, Latvia.

    Good morning, good morning all. Hope your week is going well. House goes officially up for sale today, I’d appreciate a few prayers for a hopefully quick sale and us being able to find a short term place to live that will accommodate our two large dogs. That is going to be the trick, and I don’t have a plan yet.

    Message in email from Dennis Prager:

    I am writing you from Washington DC where I will be testifying before the U.S. Senate today on the critical subject of Big Tech censorship.

    At 2:30 p.m. ET, I will join the Senate Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, chaired by Sen. Ted Cruz, to discuss how YouTube/Google has restricted over 100 PragerU videos and prevented us from monetizing many others.

    The clear suppression of conservative content on ideological grounds threatens the future of America more than any external enemy.

    In fact, never in American history has there been as strong a threat to freedom of speech as there is today.

    This is why I will not stand idly by as Big Tech companies defraud the public by claiming that they are β€œideologically neutral” and β€œa public forum for all ideas.”

    As you know, PragerU has two active lawsuits against Google/YouTube β€” one before the Ninth Circuit and another pending in California state court. The outcome of these two cases will determine the future of free speech online for all Americans.

    At PragerU, we are determined to fight as long as needed to protect our freedom of speech.

    This message of free speech is one that I have spoken about extensively for years and one that I am taking to our representatives in Washington.

    • Lucille says:

      Good day to you, Nyet! Just take a serving of each item, put the lot on a big serving tray and send it out here overlooking the Pacific in San Diego, CA…

      …where the room needs a warm-up with an interesting plant arrangement rather than the lamp on the left (which should be closeted for good)…

      …some unusual decorative pillows with an ocean theme…

      …jettison the elephant table and lamp and replace it with something simple along with some large shells (I mean what does an elephant have to do with the ocean?)…though there is this, albeit not in San Diego…

      You’d think for a room costing $400 a night management could break for a nice bottle of champagne, iced in a beach-themed cooler on the coffee table, right?

      Thanks ever so!

      Well, we did recall Gov. Gray Davis sometime in the 90s, can’t remember when now. So it CAN be done. And Davis, a friend of my boss and actually quite a nice guy, was nowhere near as incompetent, socialist or nutty as Newsom. Newsom deserves bouncing out on his backside pronto.

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Gen. 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.
