Sunday, February 5th open thread: ‘Stressed Out’

February 5, 2017

open-thread  Here is the open thread for Sunday, February 5th. 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!

  Here is a unique duo that calls themselves Twenty One Pilots performing their hit single “Stressed Out” live last year. For more information on this one of a kind act check out this story and you will learn the reason behind the dark makeup on the singer’s hands and neck as well as the subtle Christian message behind many of their songs. 

  I think my favorite lyric from Twenty One Pilots comes from the song “Car Radio.” In  that song he sings about his car radio being stolen and because of this he has no distraction and is forced into thinking:  “There are things we can do but from the things that work there are only two. And from the two that we choose to do peace will win and fear will lose, it is faith and there’s sleep.We need to pick one please because faith is to be awake, and to be awake is for us to think, and for us to think is to be alive. And I will try with every rhyme to come across like I am dying to let you know you need to try to think.”

      Hey SDL, hope you are well and getting thru the Winter alright! We are having a very mild Winter here in the midwest, very little snow and temps have been moderate to warm. I actually am missing seeing the snow! All too soon we will be back outside doing yard work and I will be complaining that it is so HOT out, haha!

        Good video! I remember during high school living up in Madison, Wisconsin, we had loads of snow….we had to shovel areas out on the street to put the cars in. The piles of snow would be 6-8 ft tall alot the sides of the street. There are alot of lakes around Madison and they froze so solid and deep that you could drive your cars on them and there was alot of ice fishing. There was also alot of snowmobiling. Here in Central Illinois, not much goes on all Winter, but sitting inside watching tv and eating, haha. I kind of miss Wisconsin. I did alot of skating and hockey back then, as well. Just a different way of life and only 1 state away.
        We may get some snow on Wednesday, but bet that doesn’t happen….there are temps in the 50’s today and 60’s tomorrow…..will probably go to the outdoor range tomorrow or if it is raining, the indoor range….
        Glad you made it this far this Winter without getting sick, last year you had some issues, didn’t you? Take care!

        Hello Lou, no I’m not off the hook with my sickness. I will go to hospital next week for a check up and I have to take a bag with me, which mean,I may stay there…or not.
        I Did Like Ice-Hockey Too, In The 60’s The Swiss Were Doing Ok…Then The Scandinavian Tcheq, Russian And USA were the top list, until they change the up growing, to rise again in the end of the 90’s and start to get for instance a Mark Streit playing this year in The Philadelphia Flyers some other in other club, they all are playing in the Swiss Team
        I like to say thank you and all the Best To You.

      If I were in the military I’d be ‘feeling’ alot better with Trump in than the fraud and antiAmerican. I like your presentation of the vid (haha) yes, they probably think that means the Fema camps for them – which might be a ‘healthy consideration’ if they’re bought and sold into the Globalist Occultic thinking! I heard the Navy Seal’s were getting bad mouthed for this – BUT just like that Judge who’s going against ‘keeping bad people out’ they don’t want to have to pack their bags and leave.

        Could be they’re so GLAD to have the creep out and Trump in – rather than Hilly ~ imagine having to answer to her and be ‘ruled over’ by a more experienced ‘criminal’! Plus, the left goonies, did have Bari flags, posters and emblems. An P.A. at the local clinic wore a O symbol on his white jacket – I disliked him ‘right away’! the enemy! To me if he was ‘beguiled’ by ‘O’ he probably wasn’t a very good P.A. and incompetent. There are sides and division going on in the Nation and as Jesus stated: Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

        Don’t you find it interesting how Jesus’ words 2,000 years ago are still relevant today?!
        There is no doubt in my mind the military is much happier with Trump as President than they would be if Hillary was elected.

    Hi Steve, interesting selection and you provided info … good! … saves me time to dig into other matters! Like ~ considering why the youth and people in general have ” identity issues”? Use to be people ‘thought’, “I think, therefore I am,” and that was good enough, because they were working, making and building their lives. Today, “I am” has been twisted into a dark occult meaning of ‘man being his own god’ – back to the serpent temptation. But that doesn’t help the ‘identity’ because what does that mean? to be a ‘god’? Who’s able to teach that “truth?”
    Comes down to: If a society is based on a Lie foundation, people are lost, blind and ignorant ~ not knowing who they are because the liar keeps telling them ‘who they aren’t’ (a person who’s born w/ a sin nature) or who they can be if they follow the lie! Teaching them tofocus on themselves, enticing them to fulfill their ‘desires’ (ungodly), because there’s no God ~ Who knows them, their ‘identity’, what they’re made of and what they can become that’s worth anything of VALUE w/ HIS help! Separating them from true HOPE for a future!
    2,493,282 viewed this – proving that people instinctually want to “know the Truth!” whether they realize it or not!

    The re-play of the Berkley 60’s riot days are back. A ‘mindset’ that sold people into bondage then (drugs, sexual disease, ‘there is no God’) has been updated and redressed, but the sick and perverted message is the same – rebellion, rioting and the collective Borg mindlessness.
    I posted this yesterday, reposting since it goes with this vein of thought:

    Gaining a ‘sense of identity’ by acting like trash ~ like the cesspool swamp mentality of the former regime.
    Example of the Left’s teaching:

    Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

    Like this little puppy, being invited into a new home of TLC, is what anyone really wants – acknowledgment, respect, knowing they’re cared for, living good life under the Smile and Watchful Eye of a Loving GOD and Savior!

      Zip, above the video you posted about “lies”, well, was wondering if you had seen the series Lie to Me? Actually it is pretty good and you can pick up on alot of what they are saying to look for….of course Dexter is always a good choice to watch, but he is demented in a good way to take out bad people…ha!

        Yes, I liked that series Lie To Me – learned alot from it! I’d like it to have gone on longer. [Another one Leverage, was good too I thought – similar in a way, devices used for good.] I’ve not watched Dexter – I’ll check it out. BUT I like show that ‘teach’ something worth knowing instead of ‘indoctrinating’ the viewer of promoting low-life perspective and living (we all use to know the difference!).

        Meant to mention, the Law is used more these days to protect the criminals and insane psychopaths then what God intended it to do – to protect the common wealth, serve justice for the good of all and uphold right standards of living and conduct. All those things certain low-lifes are determined to undermine and ‘change’.

      They’re just UGLY. I can’t even watch it. Like the 1/2 time Super Bowl show that’s become a satanic occult worship service of the depraved. That’s what President Trump is up against in trying to bring back decency and Greatness to a Nation under siege by no-quality low life’s. Cleaning out the sewage inside the Gov. & the Country will take an act of God!

      Yeah, while I love to watch the Pats in the Superbowl I have no use for the halftime show.

        That’s because it’s become a satan ritual worship celebration disguised as a 1/2 time show. Very pagan, indoctrinating and vile.
