COMING SOON!
TO A SKY NEAR YOU

Among His many names, He is JESUS CHRIST, YESHUA, JOSHUA, KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS.

But many of us call Him "my Saviour".



Less than 3-1/2 years ago friends, I thought that I would end this LMC bloggie of mine with a huge post about my belief in Reincarnation:  A belief that I'd held closely since the early 1990s, when a student at OU.  
I had the thing written, re-written and re-re-written to perfection, to profess how I believed in that spiritual cycle; ready and waiting in the innermost parts of my computer's memory to be copied/pasted here at the Local Malcontent.

But then, Love REALLY Lifted Me.

I can remember almost the exact day that I fell to my knees in 2017, asking in prayer that the LORD Jesus re-enter my life and accept me, a misguided sinner nonpareil, with a well-read blog on the Internet.  I asked humbly, I asked sincerely for Jesus to show me His Truth, to direct me Please Lord, onto the path which led to eternal companionship with Him and our Father God.
It was around August, 2017, around the time of the Solar eclipse across the middle of America.
And the interpretation of the heavenly signs foretold in Revelation Ch. 12.
WHICH OCCURRED, ON SEPTEMBER 23, 2017, 
FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME IN OVER 7,000 YEARS. 

AN EVENT FORETOLD BY THE APOSTLE JOHN around 90 AD, 
ONLY RECOGNIZED IN 2017, according to the prophecy in Daniel 12:4, around 600 BC.
I Repented of my sins of unbelief then~

And as it happened, I began searching GOD's Word regarding the end of days,
began to seek out GOD's Eternal Timepiece as foretold, as prophesied so very long ago,
in such misunderstood language.

AND, I began to notice how Old Testament prophecies from thousands of years ago, from the Books of Genesis, of Daniel, of Isiah, of Ezekiel, of Thessalonians and of Revalation
were happening in this time, these days, IN FRONT OF OUR EYES on the world stage..

To. The. Letter~!
Unlike all other reputed 'End Days' World situations that the world's citizens experienced before...

"According to the Bible" should be the beginning of every world news event headline, here on.

So I have to end this little diatribe now and go to work~  there will be more to this, this story of GOD's Glory, soon here.
Suffice it to say NOW though, I never lived before as a Frenchman in the 18th Century....

'Nanu Nanu'



Lovingly lifted from Sky and Telescope , Another Interstellar Visitor Headed Our Way

First there was 'Oumuamua, discovered nearly two years ago. Now we might be in store for another interstellar flyby, this time by the recently discovered comet known for now by the provisional designation C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) — formerly gb00234. Gennady Borisov captured the object on August 30, 2019, at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory when it was about 3 astronomical units (a.u.) from the Sun. Unlike 'Oumuamua, which wasn't spotted until well after perihelion, the new comet is approaching the plane of the solar system and will reach perihelion on December 10, 2019.

But it's still early. Don't be surprised if these dates change as more observations come in.





INCOMING~! 
From 02 O'clock, this projected path, almost colliding with planet Mars (orbit in purple):  






Unrelated to this incoming comet news,
there's an old wise Indian saying that
'The brightest stars only burn 
Half as long':

NOW 18 YEARS ON

"Blessed is the nation whose God is
the LORD."               Psalm 33:12

It's hard to believe it has been 18 years, since that terrible day for me- With each anniversary, the period of time between that day and now seems the same to me. The span of time is greater,
but the memory is still fresh and raw and painful:  It IS as if
the terror tragedy happened just recently.

I miss that national sense of 'Oneness' which we all felt in the aftermath of 9/11, though I certainly wish that America had known that solidarity without an attack of our countrymen/women and our way of life.
But Tuesday, September 11, 2001 did happen, leaving us all reeling from a monumental horror, mentally scarred with the memories and disillusioned by endless war in it's aftermath.

Each and every year since 2008 on this date, I am humbled to remember with honor one great man who passed that awful day.


**(( Republished from 11 years ago ))



FIFTEEN YEARS AGO, September 11, 2001 was a crisp, mild Tuesday.

The early morning weather that morning in Secaucus, New Jersey was clear and unusually cool, around 57° at 5:45 am, when Michael Anthony Tanner made his wife's coffee.

"I couldn't get out of bed unless I had coffee," wife Michele Tanner would remember. "He would get up at 5:30, and he left at 6, but at 5 till, he would have that coffee underneath my nose, every day of my married life."

This Post is Dedicated to The Extraordinary Life of Michael Anthony Tanner,

Secaucus, New Jersey, an investment trader with Cantor Fitzgerald, working in the North World Trade Tower in lower Manhattan, NY.

More Specially, To His Eternal Memory And To His Legacy.

Michael "Tiny" Tanner, 44.


Tanner was called "Tiny" by his friends and co-workers, as he was taller than 6-foot-2, and weighed over 250 pounds. And he had a large capacity for kindness. Men as big as "Tiny" Mike Tanner often need to be extra-kind, to offset their impressive size. Michele just called her loving husband 'Mike'.

Mike worked for the Investment and Stock Trading firm, Cantor Fitzgerald. CantFitz, whose slogan is "At the end of the day, what did you achieve?", back in 2001, was located on floors 101-105 of the north World Trade Center.

More on his office space, in just a moment.

Meanwhile, Let's get to know Michael Anthony Tanner.

This past March 24th, 2009, his wife wrote:
"Hi Michael,

Wish you were here to see your beautiful, intelligent, spirited, kind hearted daughters. You would be so proud.Your mom misses you so much. I miss you so much. Not good at feelings so Happy Birthday in Heaven. say hi to dad and Teddy. Michele"

A friend of Mike's wrote: "... I'll always remember the Herman Munster shots (monster home runsyou used to hit. You were a good man."



See, Mike Tanner of Secaucus, New Jersey was a star athlete in his youth, before he was a star Investment/Securities trader as an adult. He lettered in Football, all four years he attended Cornell University in Ithica, New York, as Quarterback of the Cornell Big Red. ~!

Yeah... Quarterback!.


Of a college football team. Dang. Wow. 
Even of an Ivy League team, that says a great deal about the student athlete, Mike Tanner.

Well after all, he had been an All-State footballer in New Jersey in 1975, leading his H.S. team to that state's Parochial B state title. QB Tanner then led his Cornell University Big Red Machine to an 8-19 record in 1976-77, and 1979. (note- as a freshman at CU~!)

Among his proudest moments was leading Cornell to a nail-biting, upset win over arch rival Harvard U., 17 to 7, in '77. Two years later, in Tiny's final year, he led the Big Red in a whuppin' of Harvard, 41-14!


"Mike had a cannon for an arm, and he was a hard runner who was built more like an offensive guard than a quarterback," said Don Fanelli, class of '76, and long-time friend of Tanner's from both high school and college, and a Chi Psi fraternity brother.


Remember Mike's nickname, "Tiny"?? 
That Never Referred to Mike's Heart. Because on September 10th, 2001, 'Tiny' phoned Don Fanelli, offering him two tickets to a N.Y. Yankees game for the next night, Tuesday the 11th, in celebration of Fanelli's wife's birthday.

"We were supposed to meet Tuesday evening. You know the rest." Fanelli said. "Despite his many personal successes, Mike retained an affinity for the underdog -- and loved the Mets and the Jets." Tiny's brother in law, Frank D'Amelio, would say later, "He gave away a lot that no one knew about. He had a heart of pure gold. He would think nothing of handing a friend $5,000 and telling them not to worry about it."


Sorry, I got ahead of myself. Michael Anthony Tanner's life is a best seller storybook, including the heartwarming, devoted love affair of his life, Michele, his longtime girlfriend, then all Too-short a time wife.

As if Mike Tanner's life wasn't already the stuff which little boys' fantasies were made of, being a state High School football quarterback star, being the University's starting football quarterback, and hitting "Herman Munster sized" Home runs, he married his High School sweetheart, too.

Mike met Michele when he was 20, she 18. They dated and then went their separate ways, but that spark between them continued to smoulder it seems, because the two always knew they would eventually wind up back together.

Ten years later, Mike and Michele realized that what they had was true love, so they made it official: Michele and Tiny Tanner.

Mr/Mrs. Michael A. Tanner. circa 2001, Secaucus, New Jersey had enjoyed a 15-year marriage and produced two extraordinary daughters, Shasha and Gianna Tanner. Mike coached basketball and softball for Sasha, 14, and was teaching Gianna, 4, football drills in the house. "The football would go flying towards this humongous chandelier, and I'd put my hands to my eyes and say, `Just be careful!'", Michele recalled, in 2002.
*******************************************
We already have learned that Mike offered his buddy Don, Yankees tickets the night before the awful, Islamic terrorism attacks, and so sadly, his death.

That Yankees game with Cleveland would not be played for almost another three weeks, as baseball became the most meaningless thing in the world suddenly.



We know that maybe, Mike brewed coffee for Michele in their kitchen, maybe 4 hours before his murder, along with 2,995 other Americans
that damned morning;
he and everyone else awoke that morning, never expecting, never dreaming what nightmare would transpire 4 hours later:

Then, on Mike Tanner's last, innocent morning, likewise the last moments of America's normalcy, Tiny Tanner proved yet again, to be a Giant hero to his co-workers. From reports of fellow employees' families, the hero Tanner, having already seen the first hijacked airliner crash into the South Tower only minutes before, took charge on his floor of the north WTC, directing other people down the stairway before himself. Until the terrifying end there, in stunned shock at a second airplane attack, and then realizing his own fate, at being among the first Americans to know that suddenly, violently, We had been attacked, and were now at war.

Michael Anthony Tanner, "Tiny". 

With A Humongous Heart of Gold.
B. March 24, 1957.
D. September 11, 2001.


WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET.

2019 World Series Prediction

Trends
Happening right now.

I am gonna go out on a limb today, 09-05-'19
predicting this years' World Series teams:


 












And my happiest surprise~!  
A reprise of the '64 Series has been boiling for decades!
Lovingly lifted from the NYTimes, this eye-opener:

Until the expansion Arizona Diamondbacks and the Florida Marlins won the 2001 and 2003 World Series, the St. Louis Cardinals are the only N.L. team to hold an overall lead on the Yankees in the World Series. In five Series with the Yankees, the Cardinals won three -- in 1926, 1942 and 1964.

Against other frequent N.L. opponents in the Series, the Yankees are 8-3 against the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-2 against the New York/San Francisco Giants and 3-1 against the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves.

The 1926 Series is primarily remembered for a tale about the Cardinals right-hander Grover Cleveland Alexander. Reportedly somewhat hung over after celebrating his 10-2 victory in Game 6, he came out of the bullpen to strike out Yankees second baseman Tony Lazzeri with the bases loaded in the seventh inning of Game 7 at old Yankee Stadium.

The '26 Series also had the strangest Series ending: With 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th and a Cardinals 3-2 lead, Babe Ruth walked, then attempted to steal second but was thrown out by catcher Bob O'Farrell,  the only World Series which ended on an attempted steal as the final out
In the 1942 Series, the Cardinals behind rookie right-hander Johnny Beazley winning twice, roared past the Yankees in five games.

The Yankees' ONLY two Series triumphs over the Cardinals occurred in 1928 and 1943. In their 1928 sweep, the Babe hit three homers in Game 4 and batted .625 over all, and Lou Gehrig had a .545 average with four homers. In 1943, without Joe DiMaggio (in the Army during World War II), the Yankees won in five.

Like Father, Like Daughter

Due to the "convenience of the calendar" this year, I have a four-day Labor Day weekend, & Leticia gets off work early today.  We'll be setting up camp by 6pm tonight.
With Kelsey now being 3+ years, her mom and I are taking her down to Tuska Homma for the Choctaw Festival for Labor Day weekend, but not her actual first time-.

This is the first Choctaw Festival since Kelsey was born in 2016 that she could remember, the first festival where we will attend Tuska Homma all four days, and the first for any of us since Marty's tragic death in 2017.

Festival will be just so different this year for so many reasons, but all reasons to celebrate~!

So we 3 Malcontents wish you and your family 
VERY HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND
filled with much good food, good friends, good times, good laughter, ....  maybe a good fistfight.  
(Never too soon to teach the younguns)

Mad Maxine Swimming Amongst
her Homeless Peeps

I've got to admit this is one of the most disgusting, depressing videos that I've ever seen.

Maxine Waters, D-CA, visiting the homeless people in her downtown Los Angeles district with Al Green, D-TX and telling them she's so impressed~.
[vomit].

At one point Maxine purchases a $10 book being sold by a homeless person, & ASKS FOR CHANGE FOR A $20

This is your Democratic Party, 2019.  
Power-hungry B-holes, every single one of them.

Imagine being 'impressed' that your constituents live in tents on the streets or sleep on park benches of a city in your Congressional District?

Homeless for over Six years in Ms. Williams' case~!

Just promise mo' "BIG GUBBAMINT" (as if that hasn't been the problem all along) to come,

then keep walking away from them, toward the fawning cameras that you hired for this SICK, ABUSIVE VID.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT, COURTESY Americanmirror(dot)com  (which I DO not endorse)


“I’ve got a big bill, it’s HR-1856, $13 billion. We’re working real hard,” Waters told a woman who goes by “Pink” as she recorded the comments on cell phone video.

“So do everything that you can, keep talking it up, keep telling everybody, to get the message out.”

“I like the set-up,” Waters told Williams.

“I put all these tents here, with my own money,” Williams said. “Free sewing for the community. I do high-blood pressure readings. I give shade … and a place to sit.

“And I did it because of police brutality broke my leg in 2013 and I couldn’t make it home,” she said. “So I’m fighting against police brutality. This is my tent. This is my cabinet that I put here. And while I’m fighting, I give back to the community and I sew.”

Moments later, Waters posed with Williams and a book she purchased from the makeshift bookstore, though she’d already forgotten the woman’s name.

“I’m Maxine Waters and I’m here, I’m with,” Waters said, pausing and pointing to Williams, prompting her to identify herself.

“Stephanie Arnold Williams,” Williams said as Waters repeated.

“And she’s so creative. She set up a really nice environment here, but she’s got all these educational books. And guess what? I bought the … Langston Hughes book, $10,” Waters said, waving around a $20 bill. “I need change.” 



Yeah, right there is Maxine's Big Bill...
a $20.





When will you sick Liberals wake up and realize the
biggest source of your poverty is the Democrat Party~??

Brand New Democrat Candidate Expects
To Wipe the Field of Candidates

It has been my custom (and pleasure) to post something usually funny or odd on the weekends, here at The Local WaterinHole bloggie.
Lately however, funny things are in short supply apparently; everywhere one looks, it is either "Racist" accusations flaming arrows, or
insidious Deep State machinations, 
plus the end of the world is any day now....


Today though, I found it.  And sharing it. 
As if there are not enough bumbling, stumbling, Democrats running for President in 2020 (at last count 144 [GROSS] of them), here's another:

Meet Fort Smith, Arkansas native, Mosemarie Boyd.  ~Not a typo... Mosemarie.

She goes by 'Mosie', which coincidentally rhymes with 'Rosie', which is probably what her parents inten--
Ooohhhh, never mind. Lovingly lifted from Ch. 5 -

  • Mosie thinks that America is ready for a woman President.
  •    Where have we heard that before?
  • Mosie wants America to know what Fort Smith residents think
  •   (Oddly, I can agree with that plank)
  • Mosie says that she's wanted to be President since she was 8 years old.
  •   (Wasn't Zerobama the same way, in like the 3rd Grade?)
  • Mosie  wants to focus on rebuilding 'Patriotism' and 'Bringing people together, and the importance of looking at our common good.
  • Mosie says that she has a good chance of winning,
  • because "this is America".


Winning her last electoral race, solidly "in America",
in a far smaller electorate, Sebastian County,
was not so easy for Mosie:  ((*There is a joke in there somewhere, combining easy and Mosie, but I am just too fatigued to figure it out))
In 2018, Mosie Boyd lost an election to become a Sebastian County, Arkansas judge, 
to Hizzonor, Republican David Hudson, the incumbent. 

Her "MosieForPresident" website is promised to be up and running in a day or two.
Her "MosieForPresident" website is promised to be down and forgotten in another few days,
leaving Mosie to become newly elected to the Error 404 circular file.

HAVE YOURSELVES A GREAT SUMMER WEEKEND, OK?
~PROMISE??

  • WE THREE WILL TOO~!



UPDATE, AUG. 23, 2019:  AND JUST LIKE THAT, POOF~!  SHE'S GONE TOO.

Meet Myshaun Dozier,
Humble, Inspirational Baseball Player
Thank GOD, His Momma Did Not Abort This Child

He's a Right hander born with no arms-  Yet 16-year-old ballplayer Myshaun threw out the first pitch at Busch stadium before the Cardinals played, a little over a month ago.





So thankful that Myshawn's mother didn't choose the easy decision to abort his inspirational life, 
instead realizing that Myshawn would someday be a mentor and hero to other children everywhere~!!

** After his ceremonial pitch, 
the game was obviously anticlimactic

If The Lottery Was Honest - Honest Ads




Truth be told, it is a swindle for government, a tax on low income earners.

Big Whoop, Rah - Rah

America did something, 50 years ago, that our country cannot possibly do today...
Landing On Luna.

I am one of the crazy "Conspiracy Theorists" who does not believe 
the 1969 moon landing claim.  
I've said so  before here.

The very simplest facts of astrophysics involved notwithstanding,
the intense Van Allen solar X-Ray radiation Belt surrounding our planet (plus on the Moon surface) would poison an organic human outside that safety belt area.

~ ( perhaps that research would be too much a headache to attempt, but by some~)

Instead, proving, causing me *(at least) to believe that this was a massive CIA propaganda campaign against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War.  Totally filmed on a sound stage in the Nevada desert, courtesy of a Very very well paid Hollywood.

But what the heck?

"Boris" the Baby Bear
Remembers When You Ate His Porridge
and When You Slept in His Bed

The author of the "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" tale 
neglected to add this very important fact in the aftermath
of the debacle inside their vandalized home:  
Cute little baby bears grow up, quick.


In due time, I will tell this same story for the 13,308th time
to my baby daughter Kelsey, 
when I shall add the shocking reality details, 
of when little Baby Boris the Bear grew up~


the moral of this bedtime story,
of every bedtime story really, is of course,

'Munchies' Sales "Skyrocket",
Economy "Soars"


"Hello, Friends, I'm your Vitameatavegamin Girl.... "

"No one expected this," stated the Official Office of Federal Unexpected Consequences (OoFUC),"
*****************************************************************

Both apply to this stunning news story,
lovingly lifted from 40/29, this:

Report: Marijuana legalization leads
to increased snack sales
States that have legalized marijuana have seen a higher increase in snack sales compared to states that haven't, according to a recent report from Nielsen.


"Marijuana consumption has been clinically and anecdotally shown to increase a consumers’ appetite and enjoyment of food," according to the Nielsen report. "And sales data from within the U.S. Census divisions where cannabis has been legalized for recreational use supports the munchies effect."

There have been increased sales of both salty and sweet snacks over the past year in the U.S., totaling $29.9 billion in salty snack sales and $6.5 billion in sweet snack sales, according to the data.


Chili-Chicken Crispitos.
Buy them by the dozen(s). For friends, of course ~

Ponderism # 23


It strikes me as odd, that Liberal politicians can claim that "Free" College tuition, "Free" Lifelong Healthcare, all of it to be paid for by higher taxes, of course.... But still have the gall to call it "Free",

Then the same politicians will describe a Capitol Fireworks Display/Celebration of America as "costly", can only emphasize how it was paid for with taxpayer funds, and anything but "Free".

Independence Day Plans?
We'll Be Lighting It Up


Happy Independence Day 2019, fellow Americans~!

Your Malcontent family will really throw a patriotic party for some Choctaw friends at our house tomorrow, Thursday, 
the 4th day of the week~!  LOL

Leticia, Kelsey and I will host a few friends at our house tomorrow and Friday for fireworks and food and good fun, including Marty's widow Jenna James and their boys Jenson and Colton from Talihina, Michael Eagle and new wife Beth from Wister, and Leti's sister Rachael from LeFlore.
Everyone will stay the night with us.
   ~Marty insisted.

From our backyard, we have a great view of several towns all North and East of here, holding celebrations with fireworks,
I am smoking a brisket now and will grill the hamburgers and weenies tomorrow,

AND I want/look SO forward to have a Roman candle war with my new best buddies/enemies, 13-year old Jenson and 11-year old Colton, (*kick buttzand introducing 3-year old Kelsey to Roman candles and wars, bottle rockets  and Black Cat firecrackers, along with the little fire snakes, sparklers and smoke bombs that she already knows of~

Then there's Leticia and her fireworks...  LOL
She purchased two gorgeous wall sconces from Bed, Bath & Beyond, which I will (try) wiring and installing them diagonally along the staircase wall, over the rest of this long weekend.

Leti and I were never fond of the single, cold overhead light fixture that came with this home, covering the staircase; it was really dim, no matter how many watts it had, dangerous lighting the stairway, and so she looked for better alternative lighting.

Leti found these and fell in love with them back in May.
She found/bought two sconces last month, on sale and well, they got here by UPS on the 29th of June, so I now gotta install them.

Fire~Works.  
Nevertheless, enjoy a very safe and 
happy Fourth of July~!!  Celebrate Freedom
and Independence~!!
