|It's Monday - YOU rise...YOU shine.|
We'll get to that in a minute.
Our Hoosierland weather finds us with.a muggy day, as temps rise into the mid-to-upper 80s.
And we also have a chance of some storms moving in this afternoon.
(oh, joy...haven't had THAT for a while)
Expect mostly cloudy skies and a slight wind, which is expected to increase when the rain rolls in.
(batten down those hatches)
And now that we have THAT done, let's get out morning drink nestled close by as we see what else gas been going around since last we met...
*** First out of the barracks is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
June 22 -
---Today is NATIONAL CHOCOLATE ECLAIR DAY
THOSE people knew how to make 'em RIGHT...and large!
*** Next up, the Lovely Mrs. Bobby G. drove down to Vincennes where her Dad now lives, and where he is scheduled for some heart surgery (today, I believe).
Sure, I spent our 18th anniversary with the CAT, but what the hey, she still HAS her father, and that's important to spend time with him.
I did ask if she left me some checks (just in case I needed some moolah), and she said "Sure, you never know"...and I said "Well, I might need to post BAIL" (and laughed)
Hey, I "might" have to rid the area of rats in our part of the ghettohood
I'll tell 'ya, there are those SPECIAL people that LOVE to push all the wrong buttons on everyone, and some day, they WILL cross the wrong person.
I just want to be there when that goes down (with lots of popcorn)...
No complaints from me, that's for sure.
*** And yes, another shooting on Fort Wayne's SOUTHEAST SIDE early this morning.
This took place at the Astoria (should have TWO Ss) Apartments and Townhomes in the 2700 blk of E. Paulding Rd.around 0300 hrs.
|The website belies the TRUTH...as usual.|
As is the case for areas like this, police have little to go on and are trying to seek out witnesses to the shooting (good-frigging luck with that).
Here's the website for the complex.
If you notice they boast "A great place to live".
Apparently, it's ALSO "A pretty decent place to get shot in the morning."
*** Next, when does a block party turn deadly?
BLACK part of Philadelphia and the shooters happen to ALSO be black.
Wonder if "Black Lives Matter"...STILL, and under THESE conditions?
Here's the story link:
It's WEST Philly, not the best part of that town (hard to find GOOD areas anymore, I can tell you).
BLACK MALES, and one had a shotgun. They opened up on the block party from one end of the street.
Several children were struck by the flying bird-shot (that's a bitch to dig out, too)
The two perps are still at-large.
--- And, if you think Detroit has it any better...guess again.
Here's THAT story
THIS party took place at some BASKETBALL courts with between 400-500 attending.
A 20 year old was killed, and the other victims range in age from 22 to 46.
No children were struck by the gunfire (thankfully).
*** This brings me to the center of today's shrubbery maze...when did it become popular to shoot up a public event?
BEST neighborhoods in these cities, but still...perhaps the community was coming together in a show of solidarity against all the violence they all too often "enjoy".
Take OUR neighborhood (puh-lease) for example.
|TOO damn many people at ONE house.|
Many only stay for a few minutes, and that tells me that this house SHOULD be under some sort of watch by law-enforcement.
Add to this, the fact that in this past week alone, they had parties at that house FOUR CONSECUTIVE EVENINGS...going on until midnight, before everyone decided to shout their way to their vehicles in some "altered": state to leave and come back the next night to do it all again.
If you guessed these people do NOT work...go to the head of the class.
These people HAVE no class to speak of...and it shows.
Yet, there are NO FWPD cars cruising the area that would notice this. I avoided calling it in because I wanted to see IF anyone else would be bothered by the din of loud music and loud people and call it in, or IF the police even did patrol through the area.
NEITHER took place, sad to say.
|Recall when police closed down THIS "club" last year?|
To put things in the PROPER perspective, this is mainly BLACKS at the heart of such party houses...but, you can toss in some Latino houses now, with all them moving into the area (like the ones across our side street - all-nighters with these folks...helluva parental "example" they're setting for their two daughters.
They are the same people who were fighting on OUR lawn over a year ago...been stand-offish with them ever since.
THIS is how things like what transpired in Detroit and West Philly begin...with this near-constant partying mindset...NO responsibilities, NO boundaries, and NO respect for anyone else living in the immediate area.
Not the BEST representatives of their particular race...are they?
*** Last back to the latrine...with all the shootings going on at social events, it's little wonder we're not seeing MORE gun-play, and that's not because of the GUNS involved, is it?
PEOPLE we're letting roam our streets. - the ones who (many times, have been through the penal system on a plethora of occasions, only to be re-re-re-released into society, where they can again practice their "craft"...and sometime taking innocent lives doing so.
ANY MORE rules and regulations for the law-abiding people out there, for THEY are not the ones causing all this shit to hit all those fans, are they?
They are just trying to live their lives, and are being DENIED the basic tenets of our founding documents...and for what?
So some punks can have some "fun" at the expense of another's life?
The judicial process needs a pretty severe overhaul if you ask me, if WE, THE PEOPLE are to be able to enjoy OUR God-given rights and freedoms.
We should take the vermin OFF the streets and not permit them the opportunity to return BACK to the same things they did before being arrested.
Crime WILL go WAY down if some tough choices were to be made along those lines.
And, I think many of you feel the same way.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
