SATURDAY was a kind of RED LETTER DAY ….

I watched the PRAYER MARCH 2020, put together by Franklin Graham.   Some approximate that 50,000 people were there.  Even young people were standing together praying.

I watched the NOMINATION OF AMY CONY BARRETT to the Supreme Court.

Both occasions were INSPIRING, POSITIVE, GOOD.

There is still good in America……..lots of it.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” 

 Joshua 1:9

    I watched the nomination. I am thankful we were not watching eric holder being nominated. Very.

    I also noticed only than 3% or less of people wearing masks. A guesstimate of course.

    MUSTANG…SO TRUE: My comment about Schumer, having just watched him, was buried in another comment on the last post last night:…
    .”EVERYBODY; DID YOU HEAR SCHUMER TONIGHT SCARING PEOPLE INTO THINKING HE HAS THE KEY? YES, APPARENTLY, IF BARRETT IS CONFIRMED, LGBT RIGHTS ARE OVER, OUR ENVIRONMENT IS GOING TO HELL, IMMIGRANTS WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED INTO AMERICA AGAIN, ETC.
    DID ANY OF YOU GET TO HEAR THAT? I JUST LAUGH NOW……TALK ABOUT FRIGGIN’ LIARS…..CHUCK SCHUMER MAKES MY BLOOD PRESSURE RISE…I’VE GOT TO LISTEN EVEN LESS TO HIM THAN I USUALLY DO…WHAT AN ASS.’

    “What a low creature he is.” You are SO RIGHT, MUSTANG!!!

    BY THE WAy, IT just hit me now; IF SCHUMER FEELS THAT A STRICT CONSTITUTIONALIST LIKE BARRETT WILL CAUSE ALL THE THINGS HE’S SUGGESTING WILL NOW HAPPEN, PERHAPS THOSE THINGS ARE NOT CONSTITUTIONAL, …..

    ha!! SEE MY POINT? !!!

    KID; YES, VERY GRATEFUL! As for masks, I thought the same thing…..probably, everybody was tested for fever going in….In some cases with Trump crowds, young people are wearing them, but mostly I see older people with them on; probably more vulnerable folks with asthma, diabetes, etc??? Who knows.

    i remember there was some talk after, I believe, an Oklahoma Rally of Trump’s where the media was thrilled that several had come down with the virus afterwards…………did that really happen or was it just their most desired dream? Because I have never heard of another of his many rallies having created a VIRUS RISE in those who attended? Have any of you???

    HERE IS WHY I CAN’T STAND FOX’S ARTHELLE NEVILLE…

    Interviewing a Constitutional Attorney on Barrett, she adds “…considering the Republicans didn’t even extend the courtesy to give Garland an up or down vote…?”
    (*$@($*&@(#&*$
    She’s a piece of work. I almost never watch her. Ever.

    BY THE WAY: Even that constitutional scholar she was interviewing said “Barrett can’t just come in and reverse everything from before!!!!”

    Right….which is the key. Also; if strict constitutionalists say certain laws are not constitutional, do we go with them anyway because THE LEFT LIKES THEM?

    I think not.

    BIDEN just said (Yes, he SPOKE and took 2 easy questions and ‘had to go’!!) that this court will TAKE YOUR HEALTHCARE AWAY …AND IN THIS TIME OF COVID!!
    If I’m not mistaken, the gov’t was picking up most of the COVID treatment costs….I could be wrong, but…
    And did YOU know nobody will be able to get an ABORTION the day after Barrett takes her seat? (Smile)
    And did you know the Supremes hate the environment so they’ll work to get rid of all safeguards against pollution?

    It’s really pretty hilarious……….

    Theories abound about scanning temps prior to entries, mask wearing and whether it protects the wearer or others, etc.etc.etc……..we’re growing weary from all the “breakthrough” data being given.

    It’s a false security. and if they don’t realize the pretense they cling to, they will enable those that insist on gagging the rest of us.
    And to those imploring to our better nature to think of the other person and mask up is to assume they do a damn thing for us and nothing against us.
    Masks are a symbol of acquiescence to the tyranny.
    People should NOT feel safer wearing the masks.
    They confer no safety.

    The democrats are preaching the republicans are going to steal the vote and trump will not permit a smooth transition and then -H- says to predator joe don’t concede. Botox wants joey to skip the debates.

    I don’t think joey will do bad in the debates and the normal attack mode of trump may be a bad approach. He may have set up joey to be so bad that even poor will be acceptable.

    PRAYER MARCH? How do people find out about these things. Great news. Interesting how the media portrayed it. And Barrett too, great news. I did read one lib who wrote honestly about her even though she didn’t like her. She was tired of baseless attacks.

    Mustang + 1 – busy signal. Yes!

    As for masks, just don’t look daggers at me without my mask. I wear it to farmer’s market because it’s required. Mr. B wears his but continually takes it off. He is entirely correct that it’s the safest place to be, out in the fresh air and sunshine, and loudly complains, and I loudly acknowledge that the people making the rules are either idiots or malevolent. Still, he’s constantly policed there. So when that happens I threaten to sing. Usually, that cows him. But yesterday he challenged me – go ahead! So I did, loud and lustily: IN THE LA-ND OF THE FREEEE, BETTER SAFE THAN SORRR-Y. And added, this generation would never make it on to Normandy Beach, much less off.

    I absolutely agree with ALL SIDES and it’s wearing…and disheartening. I agree 100% with those who think a barrier’s a good idea, and I agree 100% with those think it’s ridiculous to force them on us….
    And, I stand by my sister’s comment “not fair to mask-shame”….Do what you like.

    Baysider, I was yelled at by a jerk at the Santa Monica post office on Wilshire…I’d parked right in the alley (you know which one), dashed in to throw my package ready for sending onto that counter, was in the post office approximately 12 seconds, with my hand held over my face once I realized I’d forgotten my mask, and the guy yells “YOU NEED TO WEAR A MASK!”
    I yelled back, “I’m covering my mouth, I’m here 10 seconds…..What’s wrong with you?L” or something like that….ass.
    They advertised the Prayer March all over TV………..and Nellie H called me about 34 times to remind me, even suggesting our core group all watch together on zoom. (No, I’m not kidding :-)) I have two friends who flew from California for it….one in a wheel chair.

    My strategy for the week of senatorial interviews of Judge Barrett is to not watch, and not to read anything about it if at all possible. She is young(ish), brilliant, resilient, and attractive. She will survive.

    However, I don’t think there will be any landmark decisions, soon, outside of the possible election results on the horizon. Anything to do with Obamacare is small-ball to me. Abortion will continue to be legal, and our First and Second Amendment rights will be adequately defended. I just can’t see any big change, but all this is speculation anyway.

    Masks: With due respect to my fellow GEEEZ’ers, I am an advocate to wearing masks. I am very aware of the studies that show little or no efficacy in outdoor use, but that has more to do with the nature of the virus’s mode of propagation, i.e., it travels on water droplets which outside are made ineffective by temperature, wind action, etc. This is why protestors, rioters, and Trump rally fans don’t get the virus.

    Inside is a different story, especially for health workers who are around virus’s all day, and elder people who catch the virus at alarming levels. There is some efficacy in using masks, there, and I think it is wise for ME to wear masks in public places. The masks inhibit me from breathing-in somebody else’s moist breath and outright spit. This is also the result of an age old habit of trying to not be caught in crowds and being forced to re-breathe someone’s second-hand breath.

    There ya go. I never see TV. My radio listening is mostly podcasts, sans ads. I’m surprised I haven’t gotten 150 emails about it. What a truly important event. I’ve just prayed for it to have an impact on people who saw, heard, or participated. Our nation will only change person by person. I found the website with a replay, and a graphic of the prayer stations, and repeated the prayers. Thank you for publicizing this.

    Your experience at the PO is why I keep a mask and an extra large handkerchief in my car. There are people who just want to be scolds. Gads, like that woman who maced a couple having a picnic by themselves in the park in San Diego. I don’t look askance at mask wearers, but I’ll admit when I saw some drivers alone in their cars and still wearing masks pull out of the farmers market parking structure I looked behind to see if they had Biden stickers on their bumpers. 🙂 My city has a video on their website showing how to make a mask without sewing – 8 layers of folds. Unbreathable! There’s a solution to the ‘pandemic’ – suffocate everyone.

  21. First, I see that I posted my comment the same time you were posting yours and it looks like my comment is in response to yours. It wasn’t.
    Second, I had not answered your post directly but instead was talking about masks, which the conversation had drifted too.
    So I thought that referring back to your original post would be a good idea and you’re scripture quote seemed appropriate to the whole wearing of masks question.

  22. We went to a restaurant the other day and knew that we had to wear a mask to our table but not at the table. Stupid.
    We did not have masks so we put kerchiefs over our orifices.
    That was not good enough for the mask nazi.
    We left.
    Yet people make masks out of kerchiefs.

    What I read the other day really scared me but, thank GOD, I haven’t heard a thing about it anywhere else other than where I’d read it; that COVID was morphing to wear masks and hand washing and distancing were a joke in protecting ourselves. I hope and pray that was wrong…it did say the findings had not been peer reviewed.

    Kid, as if Nadler isn’t ugly enough…

    Re masks, people might yell at you here in a restaurant, or not let you in…like the guy did to me in the post office the other day (see above)….
    A Dr was just on FOX saying it’s really only in tighter quarters (like a pub, for example), where people are unmasked, talking to each other loudly, and the air’s tight, that people will get sick….And the more virus you inhale, the sicker you get. The less, the less sick. Which makes sense, considering how different peoples’ symptoms can be.
    That’s kind of reassuring….Plus, they think the COVID (unlike I said above, where I read 2 days ago that it’s morphing into being almost uncontrollable by hand washing or distancing or masks), is getting milder in general.

    Fingers crossed.
