Open thread for Sunday, July 31st: ‘November Spawned a Monster’

July 31, 2016

  open-threadHere is the open thread for Sunday, July 31st. 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.

  Last week we discussed 9 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!

  Now that the conventions are over and Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are officially the nominees I cannot help but feel that no matter which candidate wins the election that November will spawn a monster.

  So here is Morrissey singing “November Spawned a Monster” live from 1991. This song has nothing to do with politics, it is about a disabled person longing to be loved but I think the title is apropos to how I feel about this election so I decided to share it this week. 

  Morrissey sings about dejection, rejection, loneliness, and about not being accepted and as you can see by this video he has a knack of connecting to his fans who probably feel the same way. To those who need comfort I would suggest a reading of Matthew 11:28: Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

    The fix continues

    As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games. Same as last time w/ Bernie. Unacceptable!

      That was a pretty funny video, thanks for sharing it. Trump needs to do what he did to Fox and refuse to debate unless this is changed.

    The lyrics:
    The word laden: 1) to place a burden upon, to load
    2) metaph. to load one with a burden (of rites and unwarranted precepts)
    Both politicians (lawyers, bankers) and religious leaders are the same in doing this to the people. Like you state Steve are like a monster – but nothing new under the sun.
    ‘For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.’ Matthew 23:4
    OR ‘Jesus speaking: Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.’ Luke 11:46
    Also, the corruption working in the spiritual realm is manifest in the physical: While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 2 Peter 2:19
    We’re even warned about the preaching of another Jesus and another spirit which isn’t of God, rather the god of this world, and those without spiritual discernment (made alive by receiving God’s Truth and Spirit) will fall for the delusion. One delusion sets up the next, then the next until the Liar is receiver as Truth. Man-made, fallen spirits inspired.

    And this one to give a laugh! (even though the vid’s music is trancing and slow moving – which goes w/ the numbing down of society – the world)!

      Nope, nothing knew under the sun! It is interesting to see what Jesus said about lawyers! The last video was fun but at the same time is showed you how easily a person can be tricked if they are not paying attention and I think the MSM does something like this all the time.

        Yep, we’re pretty easily fooled at times and when dealing w/ an entity that’s been around before the Garden, think how well he knows how to trick us. The first two I posted because ‘events’ to come stated in the Bible can be manufactured as real by the mimic and his minions, making people believe things are of God and they aren’t. That’s what’s going on now w/ the bluebeam and other tech we don’t even know about! Another reason to lean on the One Who does! the Beloved.

        I guess it is easy to mix reality in with the deception and that is what is happening today. There is only one answer and that is to pray to be able to be able to tell the two apart and as we know evil has been around since the beginning.

    While the Democrats are distracting everyone with the Russian threat the real threat is Tiurkey. Obama has been given many warnings that the political situation in Turkey is deteriorating. Erdogan has become a dictator who supports the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islam.

    The USAF has an airbase at Incirlik Turkey with 1,500 personnel and possibly a nuclear arsenal. The electric power was cut off and the air space closed during the recent failed coup. Erdogan now is apparently allowing anti America sentiment to take hold among the Turks. Where do you think they will target to vent their anger?

    The U.S. should have left Turkey after they shot down the Russian military jet. I guess Obama wants to embarrass the U.S. Military again and hand Erdogan nuclear weapons.

      It just keeps getting worse and worse over there as time goes by. I don’t know what Obama’s objective is over there but he always seems to be on the wrong side…
