Now, don't fret, it was just a small brain fart on MY part, and we'll be taking care of that anon.
Meanwhile, here in the Hoosierland, it's going to be a day with some RAIN in it.
If we do see the sun, it might be just a glance or two, according to the weatherman.
The high today will be around 46 degrees with more rain coming into tonight...that ought to chase the last of the snow away.
(the "high" around my part of the ghettohood will be whenever the mooks wake the hell up)
*** Now, as I so marvelously FORGOT yesterday, here is the WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week, complete with the answer.
"Hatred is something peculiar. You will always find it strongest and most violent where there is the lowest degree of culture."
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (28 August 1749 - 22 March 1832) - the same birthday as my father...we would have gotten along well... and here is his WIKI:
Now here was a renaissance man; a writer, a scientist, and a politician.
Von Goethe was also noted for his studies in evolution, linguistics, and philosophy.
Much of his poetry was set to music by Mozart and Mahler.
His views count him among some other pretty notable individuals such as Thomas Jefferson and Ludwig Von Beethoven.
It was also said that Nikola Tesla was highly influenced by Von Goethe's FAUST (his favorite poem) and Tesla had memorized the entire text, and it was this that led to the idea of the rotating magnetic field and eventually alternating current.
Heavy stuff, huh?
Meanwhile, back in the laboratory...
*** An invasion/armed robbery nets ONE perp out of two.
Here's the story link:
When inside, they forced a woman to tie up her 12-year old son, threatened to kill them, and then availed themselves of various items around the place, such as video games, a cell phone, a debit card and a handgun that belonged to the woman's boyfriend..
They attempted to flee in a gray Trailblazer and it as then they were caught when the SUV stopped in an alley nearby.
|Jonesin' with the WRONG crowd?|
Lewis Jones was the one caught and charged with multiple felonies including criminal recklessness, burglary, robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon (seems they ALL suffer from that one), battery, and criminal confinement.
The other perp remains at-large.
*** There was also another robbery in the 4300 block of Avondale Dr. around 0130 hrs on 26 March.
(this story has been played down for some odd reason)
SCANNER so I would know how CLOSE this sh*t happens to us.
According to WOWO, in this robbery/home invasion, there were THREE men who kicked in a door, and demanded cash.
One of the men wielded a shotgun.
The three men fled the scene BEFORE police arrived (as they seem to do down here with regularity) with the woman's wallet.
FWPD is still searching for the suspects.
NO descriptions were available, but I'll give you THREE guesses as to ethnicity (and the first two don't count)
*** And yet ANOTHER armed robbery of a residence, this time early in the morning and on Riedmiller Ave.
Here's the story from the WOWO site:
According to police, an officer arrived on the scene around 7:30 a.m., Wednesday.
A woman said that she was robbed by three teenagers.
She told the officer that at approximately 7:05 a.m., she heard a knock on her door.
When she asked who it was and a male replied by saying that he missed the school bus and wanted to use her telephone.
The woman opened the door and gave him her cellphone.
She then stated that he walked into her living room without permission.
She told him to stop and that’s when two other teenagers entered her home.
The woman said one suspect had a gun tucked into his waistband, while he was holding onto with his hand.
They took her prescription medications, laptop, and television. They then left the scene.
The victim described the suspect who knocked on her door as black, approximately 17-years-old, with an “afro” hairstyle and a short, thin build.
She described another suspect as black, around 17-years-old, with a very short, thin build.
The third suspect is described as black, about 17-years-old, with a dark completion and stocky build.
The officer did find a pill bottle outside of the victim’s home on the ground, which had apparently been dropped.
The officer collected the bottle and placed it into evidence for fingerprints.))
Seems the crime IS spreading WEST...just as I said it would...and by teens before school.
*** Next up, I guess I kinda blew everyone away with my opening salvo about CULTURE.
IS. I suppose I was expecting some feedback on it, but I will admit that it does take time to let it all sink in.
Hopefully, you won't find it totally incomprehensible, as I am not trying to make it anything close to that...
I'm of the "K.I.S.S." mentality, and we're not talking Gene Simmons or Ace Frehley here, but rather the OTHER acronym (Keep It Simple, Stupid)...LOL
I do think that what I have to share will make you think , and if THAT happens, I've done my part.
*** Speaking of CULTURE...there was a rather interesting "editorial" in today's J-G, written by noted libtard, Eugene Robinson.
Washington (Com)Post, because for some "odd" reason, I cannot locate it in the local Journal Gazette, even though I was holding the story IN MY HANDS (wonder why it's NOT on the online version?)
Robinson, obviously has absolutely NO idea on how to address Paul Ryan's assertions (which happen to be CORRECT)...so, like any OTHER leftist, he goes after the individual, rather than the content..
When a libtard CANNOT attack the MESSAGE, they attack the MESSENGER...which shows how weak a hand they're playing with (as usual).
IS part of who we are...our vocation often defines us in our life pursuits.
Ryan also mentions about a generation of inner city men who actively do NOT want to work, and that again, is spot on.
While it's not representative of any class or ethnicity, the FACTS are just that...FACTS.
There IS an inordinate number of men in the inner city that DO NOT work, nor have any desire to do so...as long as they can crib with babay-mamas and live off her government-sponsorship...OR deal in street pharms to support them both (and whatever children they choose to bring into the world to perpetuate this societal farce).
This "culture of work" as Ryan puts it, is one of those "intangibles" that usually produces the tangibles (like cash and stuff) OF our culture, or ANY culture.
Robinson believes that if Ryan refers to rap and saggy pants, then he needs to look at schools in affluent suburbs instead of the inner city, because kids there are similar in nature (yeah, right...those affluent areas that all the inner city kids were BUSED to, right Eugene?).
How well has that worked out for everyone?
Robinson also states that Ryan CANNOT be referring to the use of illegal drugs, because that crosses ALL borders (literally) and classes of people.
I'm sure that Ryan is not talking about drug USE as much as drug DEALING, which is primarily an inner city issue, fostered mainly by those of ethnicity.
FACTS, Eugene, and get your head out of your...."sandbox".
Robinson's tirade against Rep Ryan is so indicative of turning a social issue into a political one. It also is a way of seeing just how LARGE the blinders are that most leftists wear when tackling such problems.
Granted, there IS a severe shortage of MEANINGFUL WORK, but that's not JUST in the inner cities...that's damn near everywhere these days.
But does that become the only reason that inner city men of color do not WANT to seek employment, while turning to more "lucrative" ventures such as the burglaries, robberies, home invasions drug dealing and other sundry crimes?
I tend to believe that even IF you had jobs by the score...good, well-paying jobs in abundance, that many of these people STILL would pursue "the fast buck" in the easiest manner possible. THAT has become a hallmark of a portion of our society today, and poverty is such a small part of all this.
|Poverty? Not so much.|
Or at least they shouldn't, because such things are akin to a fraudulently-acquired lifestyle.
Unfortunately, our government seems to want that for more than a few of the inner city folks.
*** Last back to garage today, one can easily see how much of an impact on our culture such things have become...and conversely, how much of an impact our "culture" has on everyday life, no matter what part of town you hail from.
We have created this interwoven and complex web one with the other.
If one were to invoke a better analogy, you could say there is a "symbiotic" relationship between what we call culture and the people.
It would appear that one cannot (or will not) exist without the other...and inter-dependency exists between the two.
It's like a heroin addict and the syringe.
We ARE a product of our culture, but you have to remember that WE are responsible for creating that culture.
In that. it should be more like one hand washing the other...more COMPLIMENTARY than anything else.
THAT is how we become better people.
Betterment and refinement through education is how it was explained in yesterday's post.
And that's one damn good start...for ANY of us, no matter WHERE we live.
Therein lies the lesson for today.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
