Sunday Respite – Sleigh Ride

 

This is a much loved orchestral piece composed by Leroy Anderson in 1948.  “Sleigh Ride” although not originally written for the holidays it has many associations and memories for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Something to get us in the holiday mood.

Beautiful photographs go along with the music. I enjoy posting this every year and it has gotten to be a tradition, Do watch it in full screen.

 

Wishing you a wonderful day.

 

Democrat calls for ‘Post WWII Re-education Camps’ for Trump Supporters

 

It doesn’t feel like the Summer of love does it? I don’t see Twitter banning these tweets and those who indicate that rounding us up for re-education camps and calling us a cult  is not hate speech.

California Democrat David Atkins this week called for Trump supporters to be “deprogrammed” in “post WWII” type reeducation camps.

 

 

 

I copied a few of the tweets in the thread. Here is his idea as to what to do with us.

“No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people? Where do you start? Fox? Facebook?” Atkins said.

“We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South.” he added.

No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people? Where do you start? Fox? Facebook? We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South.

This is not your standard partisan policy disagreement. This is a conspiracy theory fueled belligerent death cult against reality & basic decency. The only actual policy debates of note are happening within the dem coalition between left and center left.

I know conservatives are upset by some of the responses here. And yeah, many are out of line. But what do you expect people to do in self-preservation? The Right has been running 4 years on “f*** your feelings, my conspiracy theories are valid opinions, and we have more guns.”

You can’t run on a civil war footing hopped up on conspiracy theories hating everyone who lives in cities, mainlining Fox/Breitbart/QAnon, threatening to kidnap governors and shoot protesters, without people trying to figure out how to reverse the brainwashing.

i mean, for chrissakes, conservatives are literally giving themselves COVID just to own the libs. They’re dying in COVID wards insisting they don’t have COVID because it must be a liberal plot. People are gonna try to figure out how to defend themselves.

There was a lot of pile own:

 

After more ringing in with what to do with the “cult” –  the cult members tried to step in and  respond and the thread took a turn to the need start the thread elsewhere.

THE RESPONSE:

The swamp takes an ominous turn.

Sunday Respite – Be Still

 

 

It has been a difficult week for many of us. We are discouraged. But our Comforter tells us to ”Be Still.”

My Sunday Respite is “Be Still” by Mary McDonald with Lyrics – Sunday 7pm Choir

Recorded live at St. Francis De Sales Church in Ajax, Ontario, Canada on  by the Sunday 7pm Choir.

It is a song of a loving God who “never leaves or forsakes,” the One who brings peace and comfort in time of need.

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, yes, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

I posted this about a year or so ago and found it reassuring during a difficult time. I hope that you find comfort in these words as well today,

 

 

Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am with you.

Be still and know that I will comfort you when you come to Me in your hour of need.

Be still and know that I am God.

Be still and know that I am here for you; and I will wipe your tears; you will be renewed.

Come unto Me, My child, be still, and know that I will give you rest,

I am present in your pain and I always will remain your Comforter and Friend.

Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am with you.

Be still and know that I will comfort you when you come to Me in your hour of need.

Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am here for you;

and I will wipe your tears; you will be renewed.

Peace I leave with you;

My peace, I give unto you.

Peace. Peace. Peace.

Be still and know that I am God. Be still and know that I am God.

Be still. Be still. Be still.

Anderson Cooper calls Trump an Obese Turtle

Anderson Cooper is a class act. Sums up the Democrat view of illegal voting. OK in my backyard.

How is the vote going in Lancaster County PA ?

The Associated Press has called 15 of the 18 seats up for election · Learn more

And where are the GOPers in support of our President?

Republican lawmakers and officials are pushing back against President Donald Trump’s series of false claims Thursday night about the presidential election, although many did not mention him by name.

Yet all of the GOP House members made it back to congress and it looks like at least 8 to as many as 15 were added. Local and State GOP had similar results. How is it that the all theses republicans were supported with a yes and not the President?

Other than that all is well in the swamp?

Sunday – Ode to the Ocean

 

Nothing could be better to end this week then taking a few moments to de-compress from all that has happened this week.

My selection: Artist: Saxcean edit. Song: Law Of Thr3e – Ode To the Ocean

From the notes:

My good friends, you want to immerse yourself in the world and remind yourself what a beautiful universe you live in… This video is as charming as the music of “Ode to the Ocean” itself.

Sit back, relax, watch the video and get real pleasure from what is happening on the display. I wish you a good rest and gain new strength. Always remember that there is nothing more beautiful on earth than to enjoy life, because its the best protection against negativity – it is primarily a positive in the soul and in relation to the world around you. Tune in to a good mood.

HAPPY LISTENING AND VIEWING!

I suggest watching it in full screen.

 

 

Wishing you a wonderful day with much Peace.

Sunday Respite – Silent Cry

 

Fall is starting to settle in here, though it is late in coming. We really haven’t had any cold weather yet except for one night.

Even so, the darkness is moving in, shortening the days. A bit of melancholy sets in as we prepare for the coming winter.

I suggest viewing the video in full screen. For politics page down and/or check out top posts listed on the right side of the page.

I have chosen the song Silent Cry by Artist Giovanni.

 

 

 

Wishing you a wonderful day with much peace.

Sunday Respite – Nocturne

 

A beautiful fall weekend here with the leaves soon to turn.

For today’s respite I have chosen the described work below. Apparently in Hungarian.

It seems a fitting work for this somber and prayerful weekend as we put our attention on the health and well being of our President as well as his family and other government officials.

Saturday’s Passel of Potpourri

 

Let’s see what mischief our fellow earthlings have gotten themselves into this week. It’s Saturday and time for a break and maybe a smile or two.

Animals and driving problems and general mayhem. Karl and Karen are back at it with their usual missteps.
