(you can't have everything, I know)
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us mostly sunny skies, temps climbing to the low 80s, and hopefully, a slight breeze to make it tolerable out there.
*** First out from under the bed is our WHO SAID THAT? quoie for the week:
"Every judgement of conscience, be it right or wrong, be it about things evil in themselves or morally indifferent, is obligatory, in such wise that he who acts against his conscience always sins"
Sounds like it really does pay to let your conscience be your guide, for many people who create mayhem act more impulsively and with an intent that seems to counter conventional wisdom.
So, who said that? The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the first Benedictine monastery at Monte Cassino...
*** Next up, time for our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
MAY 23 -
---It's Emergency Medical Services for Children Day
IS EMS week)
---It's National Lucky Penny Day
THOSE about now)
---It's National Taffy Day
*** Next, for some folks (and school systems) the freebies never seem to end. Here's the story:
BREAKFAST and LUNCH for FWCS students starting next year?
(we must have some very lazy whatever is passing for parents out there)
I'm sorry, but with ALL the programs available for those in some form of poverty, I don't see ANY reason to bilk the taxpayers further with all this free food crap from the public schools. Makes no damn sense at all.
SOMEONE (always) has to pay for this, right?
How about you have the schools TRY and build a sense of ETHICS into the kids...or MORALITY, rather than give them something they SHOULD be getting at their damn homes?
*** Next up, a very revealing story from WPTA's "Digging Deeper" series:
I guess having a "top-heavy" school system IS par for the course these days?
FWCS are making SIX figures, are they? But the administrators sure seem to be doing that.
NEEDED to ba asked.
I think that Alexa Shear did an excellent job of reporting (and fact-finding).
FWCS makes more than the mayor (who is the highest paid one in ALL of Indiana) or even the governor...guess we know that liberals run the school system here, hmm?
*** Next , a veteran gets cited when he brings his service dog to a VA center. Here's the story:
((Brandon Rimmer was a K-9 handler in the Air Force. He served two combat tours in explosive detection.
"You can't adjust back to civilian life. You can't explain it unless you've experienced it."
When Rimmer was admitted to the Cincinnati VA hospital for tests Wednesday, Old Glory went with him. "My PTSD service dog, it's not recognized by the VA," he said. "It's recognized by the ADA, but it's not recognized by the VA. So I'm in violation of federal law."
Cincinnati VA Police Chief David Bartos said he believes the dog is a puppy, not a service animal trained to perform tasks for people who are disabled.
"Emotional support is not a task," he said, citing federal VA regulations.))
At least THEY served their country and sacrificed much to EARN it!.
*** Next up, John Rosemond had a good article last week about parental "attitude".
Here's the link:
I think much of that column is self-explanatory.
ALL the free meals given out at schools IF parents had the right attitude, not only when it came to discipline, but also when it comes to doing what a parent SHOULD be doing...like providing a basic breakfast (or lunch) for their children like OUR parents did.
*** Next, time to get away from all this mental clutter and visit our "Kitten Corner"...
|Too pooped out to open my eyes.|
|I iz all spazzed out now.|
*** Next up, let's take a minute to check in with "Midnight and Company"...
|A cute little fur circle.|
|Each has their own "spot" for napping.|
*** Last back to the linene closet...Wifey is taking another trip to visit her dad down in Vincennes today (...great...), and that means it's back to "Bachelor Bob" mode at the "Fortress" for the next few days.
|Heading out once again...|
Yes, the "fun" never ends.
|Well, it hasn't come to THIS...yet.|
More to worry about...guess that's what wives are supposed to do?
My family was never big on taking trips during any holiday...maybe that's why I'm still here.
And those who really NEED to take a trip (away from our part of the ghettohood) NEVER do so, but instead stay around to annoy the hell out of the normal folks. Justice, anyone?
It's like all the people being shot in the city lately...the ones who NEED to be shot never are.
The evil just finds more ways to manifest itself, and that alone is cause for concern.
|If ONLY more people would...|
But what we have to keep doing is trying, for in that, we can make progress against those forces.
Might not be a giant leap every day, but enough baby steps will work well enough.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
