Claycord – Talk About Whatever

May 9, 2014 20:05 pm · 238 comments


Happy Friday to all the wonderful citizens in the City of Claycord.

This is a post with no subject, you can talk about whatever you want. If breaking news happens (such as an earthquake), or you hear about something newsworthy, feel free to post it here.

to Atticus #146: I love you too. Yes, I would be equally concerned if a practicing Muslim wanted to pray at a city council meeting. It isn’t the type of religion that bothers me, with the exception that one kind might make someone of another kind comfortable. Really, it’s praying of any kind at a government meeting in which city business is being conducted. I just don’t think it’s the right place for it.

to Christianity 101 #147: “Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, and Christians will all have an equal chance to say a prayer.” How do you know that? “I support Councilman Helix on this request.” I respect your opinion; I just don’t agree with it.

to RunDogRun #153: This issue is really more about religion and its place in government rather than politics.

to anon #182: Some of Christian Lady’s comments have been removed. The intent of her comments appeared to be more about Killjoy and myself and the lack of religion in our lives rather than the topic at hand.

Thank you everybody for commenting on this topic, regardless of how you feel about it. It looks like most feel that praying in city council meetings is inappropriate. As I said before, I think that Mr. Helix’s intentions were good. Apparently, this was a practice in the past that had been discontinued; I guess he is feeling nostalgic about it. I don’t know whether anybody put him up to it; he said this had been on his mind for awhile. Actually, I had the impression that the rest of the council was kind of shocked and wasn’t sure how to react. Anyway, I hope it doesn’t go any further.

Silva I’m gonna go out on a limb as say we have little to no biker or moll traffic here on Claycord. Your safe.
Travesty? Precious time? That’s kinda overstating things a bit.
Here’s another example of us worrying about the format of things instead of the content.

Silva, I only need to go out Morgan Territory Road to shoot. I am a member of The Diablo Bowmen. 🙂

4 Killjoy May 16, 2014 at 4:45 PM

Oh, and Last! 😀

5 Puddintain May 16, 2014 at 4:53 PM

Horse n around; You’re right, and please accept my apologies for calling you a harsh name. I guess I over reacted to the condescending nature of your comments.

Last on a beautiful Friday.

11 Silva May 16, 2014 at 5:55 PM

Atticus Thraxx, can’t I just have some theatrics now and again? 😉

Killjoy, sounds nice.

My very first last!

12 Silva May 16, 2014 at 5:57 PM

Connie Hobbs, :D!!

ChampagneKitty, it was probably the Supreme Court ruling earlier this month that prompted Mr. Helix to suggest reinstating prayer at city council meetings. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that it was constitutional to start the town council meetings of a small town in New York with a prayer, even if the prayers favored a particular religion. In the case they ruled on, the prayers were almost always about Jesus Christ and the Resurrection. One news article I read about the ruling used the headline “If You Don’t Like It, Leave” to sum up the opinion written by the Supreme Court majority.

18 ChampagneKitty May 16, 2014 at 6:55 PM

Happy One, you’re probably right.

BTW, I spent a glorious afternoon today with my grandson at Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont. It’s a working farm in the East Bay Regional system. We were expecting a little ride on a horse pulled train, but sadly their horse had died of colic. They did all they could do to save him, but couldn’t. They want to buy another horse at the cost of $1,000, and so far have collected about half of that in donations. It’s a little far, but a very cool place.

I’m playing tonite…..LAST!

21 Killjoy May 16, 2014 at 8:16 PM

Actually Silva, I can be very nice.
Just ask ChampagneKitty. She was asking here on Claycord if anyone knew how to install a shower hand rail (security bar).
I went over her place and did the job. Only took a few minutes of my time.
She tells me the Maintenance Man at her condo told her it was installed very well.
You could ask GoGo too. But it seems like he’s never on Claycord that much anymore. He and I work together.

22 Killjoy May 16, 2014 at 8:16 PM

Oh, I forgot. Last.

25 Enfield303 May 16, 2014 at 8:39 PM

Is it too first to be last?

26 ChampagneKitty May 16, 2014 at 8:39 PM

Yes, Killjoy is very nice. And I’m very appreciative of my safety grab bar; I use it all the time. 🙂


27 Atticus Thraxx May 16, 2014 at 8:45 PM

Of course Silva, Lord knows I act the fool. 🙂

37 Dr. Jellyfinger® May 16, 2014 at 10:54 PM

Killjoy, do you shoot wonderful, Traditional Archery ….or the blasphemous, bastard son of archery…… the modern, stick full of gears & pulleys…… that arrow launching machine known as a “Compound Bow”? Just curious…

38 Silva May 17, 2014 at 7:33 AM

Killjoy, I’d suspected you were nice too! 🙂
