We did get "some" precipitation, but it was more like a few sprinkles, and not enough to even warrant having an umbrella.
Today might be a little better, in that we may get rain later this afternoon, although it's only a 30% chance of it (promises, promises), and the temps here in the Hoosierland will hover in the UPPER 80s with all the humidity we can take coming along for the ride (a taste of Summer?).
So, as we're waiting to hear the A/C kick on, as it inevitably will today, let's take a few moments to top off that morning beverage while I scrounge around to see what others have been busy doing...
*** First off of the table today is yet ANOTHER shooting down in the wonderfully ghetto-esque SOUTHEAST SIDE of Ft. Wayne.
Wow, AGAIN at the Chapel Oaks Apartments...sounds like we got us some competition for Eden Green now, hmm?
This happened around 2230 hrs last night in the 800 block of Oaklawn Court.
When police arrived, they found one male (probably black) inside an apartment suffering from at least one gunshot wound.
He was taken to hospital in serious condition.
|We COULD open a FWPD sub-station HERE, Frank!|
As usual, NO information about the subject, NO motives, NO shooter descriptions, NO witnesses, and NO arrests have been made, although one woman was detained for interfering with police.
|Okay, WHO brought the donuts?|
The investigation IS ongoing (well, that's one ray of sunshine).
*** Over the weekend, a 7-year old was struck by stray bullets as she slept in her bunk bed.
And yes, this ALSO took place on the city's...(...all together, gang...)...SOUTHEAST side.
Here is this story link and video:
|I DO like the A/C 2x4 "prop-job"...lol.|
The child was taken to hospital and released with no life-threatening wounds.
Police found shell casings outside the house, along with bullet holes in a car that was struck by the gunfire.
The girl's mother stated that the house had been hit 16 times, and police believe there was a gun BATTLE taking place from another house nearby and someone shooting from the street.
|That's NO stick-on decal down here.|
The neighbors were entertaining company when the shots rang out (kinda LATE for entertaining, isn't it?)
The girl's mother said they had ONLY lived in the area for 6 weeks, and is also glad her daughter's injuries were not more severe.
Gotta love life in the ghettohood, right?
*** There it is, plain as day...the headline we KNEW was coming...
"EPA AIMS AT CURBING EMISSIONS"
Here's the story:
|THIS creates MOST of our electricity!|
If it were up to them, we'd be living by candlelight, riding bicycles, eating tofu in mud huts because all THAT shit is more "environmentally-friendly".
And what OTHER nations will follow suit and help by doing likewise?
Short answer - NOT TOO DAMN MANY!
In fact, India and China have been ramping UP their use of coal...go figure.
And to add insult to injury, the show COSMOS last night talked about global warming, or "climate change", and DeGrasse-Tyson only briefly touched on axial rotation or "wobble", concentrating on OUR nasty use of fossil fuels.
|Uh oh - This (liberal) "triumvirate" can't be good.|
I will admit that the climate DOES change...always has, and always will, and this has been going on LONG before we were walking upright, and will continue LONG after we've returned to the dust from which we were spawned.
That's just how the universe works...and we can't change that one damn bit.
|You guessed RIGHT!|
We've got such a domino effect here, it's not funny.
*** And while Obummer is trying to make something out of weakening our country during his tenure as blamer-in-chief, there's THIS story:
|New signage for the SW states.|
And...shouldn't our VETERANS come FIRST?
Well over 20 MIL have gotten into this country illegally (milklions MORE if you track back say...SIXTY YEARS or so), and instead of shipping them back wholesale when they ARE caught, many that were being )previously) held by I.C.E. are kinda being turned back all right...onto OUR OWN STREETS, and more than a few of them being serious violent felons.
What's blatantly WRONG with THAT picture?
These are TREASONOUS actions and would precipitate stronger measures were this in an earlier time when people knew right from wrong, and punished wrong and evil whenever it reared it's head.
You just have to wonder who is permitting the inmates to "run the asylum", because it doesn't bode well.
*** Lastly today, there IS something called EVIL in the world...a LOT of evil, and many times, it puts on a facade of something people would flock toward , rather than shy away from.
We can thank all the properly orchestrated propaganda for such things...
Tell a lie often enough and long enough, AND be convincing while doing it, and people WILL tend to believe it, and the bigger the lie, the better for those telling it.
|If you think differently, you're not paying attention.|
I will be mentioning this tomorrow, along with some observations I've made regarding the face of good and the face of evil
We can know the difference if we practice "situational-awareness" in our lives, as well as in what we read and hear from the media.
We do not have to be fooled into believing something that is false, and that's the TRUTH
Stay SAFE out there, America.
