Sunday, December 6th open thread: I Love a Man in a Uniform

December 6, 2015

  open-threadHere is the open thread for Sunday, December 6th. Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.

  This week we covered 7 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.

  In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.

  The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!

  Well, I returned to work on Tuesday after a month of convalescence and I have to admit it took a couple of days for me to get back into the swing of things but in all honesty it feels good to see the guys again and to get back to my normal life–or at least a semblance of my normal life as I am on a 32 hour work week for December and cannot lift anything over 10 pounds for three months. The 10 pound restriction is hard to get used to because basically it means that I cannot lift more than one gallon of water, I cannot even lift my own tool bag without asking for help! I have to ask people to do things for me that I would normally do for myself and at times it feels like I am not carrying my weight but everyone is understanding.

 So many people have come up to me after the surgery and told me they were praying for me and I have to tell you that despite what some on the left have been saying recently prayers really do mean something and I have been touched by how many people were praying for me, including many whom I did not know were believers.

 Think about it this way: if people care about you enough to include you in their petitions to God, which is the most intimate relationship a person can have, you are truly blessed and you should not take it for granted. I would like to publicly thank everyone who kept me in their thoughts and prayers, you will never know how much it means to me to know you cared so much about what I was going through during the most difficult point in my life and were praying for me. 

  Now on to the musical selection the week: my posts are automatically shared with Facebook so people who follow me there but do not necessarily follow the blog will probably wonder what the title of this post is all about, but of course regular readers of America’s Watchtower know that the title of this post is a song title. Perhaps curiosity will encourage some of my Facebook followers to come to the blog to find out and that is a good thing.   

  I could not decide what band to share with you today but I knew that I wanted to post something from a band that I had not shared before and this song suddenly popped into my head last night. I have not heard this song in years (decades) but here is Gang of Four performing “I Love a Man in a Uniform” live from 1982.

    The Washington Redskins finally drops offensive name!

    Dan Snyder, owner of the NFL Redskins, has announced that the team is dropping “Washington” from the team name, and it will henceforth be simply known as “The Redskins.”

    It was reported that he finds the word ‘Washington’ imparts a negative image of poor leadership, mismanagement, corruption, cheating, lying, and graft, and is not a fitting role-model for the young fans of football.
    (hah!)
    – – – – –
    Neat Steve that your fellow workers are showing such consideration and prayers for your welfare! Showing how God can not only turn a frightening situation into a blessing but stack it with qualities of Himself that make Life LIFE! Just as we need air to breath for our bodies, love to keep our souls heathy, we need His Word (LIFE) energizing our spirit! His Good and Perfect Will for each of us who come to see that He is the One who complete us: spirit, soul and body. “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;” (Ephesians 3:16) “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” (2 Cor 4:16) http://thekingsbible.com/BibleAdvancedSearch.aspx?exc=y&sch=inner%20man# Goes against man’s theory of Evolution, but reality is reality regardless of the playing field.
    {Interesting music choice ~ Swiss should like that one!}

      Thanks for making my laugh Zip! And yes the name Washington is offensive!
      I have been really touched by all the people who have told me they were praying for me, I was told time and time again how lucky I was to have had the eye problem which found the tumor early and while I understood what they were saying I did not feel lucky at all. Know I feel like one of the luckiest people on the planet!

    Evening, SDL!
    I want to know WHO is going to volunteer to listen to the “Chief” tonight on TV? I am not sure I have it in me to listen and form any sensible report from it or not. The fact that it will probably involve taking away OUR right and giving rights to the Muslim is not sitting well with me? Any takers on tuning in?

        I find this huge increase in the frequency of these types of attacks to be quite interesting. Of course the left will say it is because Obama hatred it driving it, but it is gun control that is driving it. They will not be happy until they get the guns.

        I think a majority of gun can be placed under an ‘art protection’ clause. They’re a work of art – especially those with ingraining and worked wood! But the corrupt and reprobate take-over group doesn’t uphold good, only its dark sick obsession of bring back the Tower of Babel (OWO).

        The fire guys should be medically trained (at least to EMT-B level) , if it was an actual event they would be utilized and not just standing around. Maybe this was at the very beginning before they got their shit together. If the hospital was across the street, I doubt they would be setting up a 2 big triage areas right out in the street like that. Yes, you would tag them, but with the ability of the ambulance (that passed on by) there, you would be loading them up and moving them out to whatever hospital was available. I did not see any actual physical damage to any of the “victims” backboarded, but maybe at some point there were some. From a short 3 minute clip, it would be hard to really make an accurate summary of what is going on. Just the fact there are so many just standing around, does not, In my opinion make this believable, but I could be wrong. Was that a Fire Chief calling the shots? Where was their EMA coordinator?
        I read that one of the nurses (I think) at that center that was attacked had called her husband to tell him that they were doing another drill. Apparently drills were pretty plentiful at that center for her to say that. Who knows!

        Good analysis / take on that Lou. Doing DRILLS is necessary, but what’s not is making it something it isn’t – using it as a real event to promote stricter laws and reduction of freedoms. The stinking liars in charge are ‘mind bending’ the populous to believe all these drills are real to take away guns and liberties.
        To put it in perspective I read that the Patriot Act was already written and bound before 911 F.F. occurred, and Bush stated he saw a plane hit the tower while he was walking in to the grade school to read ‘My Pet Goat’ and heard of the other hit while inside. [‘Joe Biden Drafted the Core of the Patriot Act in 1995 … Before the Oklahoma City Bombing’ (Washington Blog) which is strange to me to even consider he had his mental capacity to do that – but shows the OK bombing was prelude to this one (in house)].
        I was brainwashed to think the Bush’s ‘okay’ & come to find out their role is more than knee deep in their dirty deeds.

        If he was suppose to be more for us, and we were deceived, how much more those coming after him who are escalating the Agenda! We have no idea what the Czars have been up to – nano parasites, just like what really took down the towers (nanoparticles). https://www.uwgb.edu/dutchs/pseudosc/911NutPhysics2.HTM

        It has been awhile since I did triage, but the levels are green, yellow, red and black. IF the green “blanket” was for a green level, it was for minor injuries, so might not see anything bad…I did see a red blanket off in the far right, which would be immediate need for care, but didn’t the ambulance pass that one up, as well? Did anyone see a yellow blanket or black? That would be the other 2 colors for triage. Yellow being second in the levels and black, pretty much nothing can be done for them and you focus on ones you can save.

        You know that ‘real meaning’ behind what the colors and procedures are Lou, having done that job. What some of the rest of us are seeing (considering the details you point out) is a DRILL being preformed and those involved have no idea that the Regime is using it to promote their world take-over Agenda.

        Against my better judgement I TURNED THE TV ON and watched the liar!
        It struck me odd that instead of sitting at the desk, he had a podium brought in with his teleprompters. That to me said he was going to lecture us and had to stand above us. Bad start on his part…..then he mentions about it being a co-worker and his wife, yes, yes he was, I guess. So, now we have “work place violence, again”? Then he goes on to tell us about his daily briefings that he attends,,,maybe more like a weekly or bi-weekly, if truth be known. After all wasn’t this guy and his wife just every day people like US, you know, WE are the kind of people that go around wanting to shoot up places and kill people on a daily basis. Also what is this shit about him calling them ISIL instead of ISIS? That drags in more countries, including Israel, I think. Isn’t that a verbal attack against Israel. Well, that isn’t what I wanted to say. You know we can go and pay for and help other countries (Mexico) seal their borders, but we just cannot seal our own. It is not the money, hell, we will just borrow more. We know WHY we cannot seal our borders, does he think we are all STUPID (you know what I think of stupid people)? He mentioned about the work VISAs, that is a start, but didn’t the wife get in on a K-1 VISA for fiances? Not a word on that, and it looks like females are going to be just as much of a threat as the men are.
        Then he mentions the no fly list, I think, if you are ever on that, no guns for you! He has a thing about ASSAULT weapons, doesn’t he? Yes, he does!
        Ok, he wants to make Muslims our allies, does he? Hmmm!
        He says that Muslims should not be treated differently, but then why does Loretta Lynch say there cannot be any hate speech, etc. when it comes to Muslims? Isn’t that treating them differently? When is he going to start taking up for us average AMERICANS? He is, at all cost, protecting Muslims, don’t you wish he would just out and tell us the truth, as to WHY he is going this?
        One last thing! am sorry, but illegals have no rights under OUR laws, what is so hard to understand? They should not benefit from the tax payers money and they should not have free schooling and a place to live at our expense. We need to seal our borders until someone gets it in their head that we do not need people coming here without approval. We cannot do that in other countries, why is it so easy here and no one can stop them?
        After reading this over, I see I am rattling, but, hopefully I got out what i wanted to say….;)

    I have a question and a comment. My question is what holidays does the Muslim religion celebrate and do they celebrate it here in the US as well as other countries? If they do, is it something kids miss school for? Has it offended anyone enough to have the celebrations banned? Do schools have to not serve something specifically Muslim religion based because American kids are offended?
    My comment is IF Christian Holidays and Jewish Holidays, etc. can no longer be recognized in the US, because it might offend Muslims are we within our rights to demand a stop to any celebrations they might be celebrating because they too are offensive? Why are THEY the only ones that seem to be offended? Someone elses faith and how they celebrate it has never been an issue with me, but now all of a sudden there are some pretty thin skinned people living here that do not want to assimilate into America……hmmmm!
