THAT was a nice gully-washer we had last night, wasn't it?
Those were some SERIOUS rain showers with thunder and lightning.
We managed to come through it unscathed.
Today will provide a much more CALMER intent to this Tuesday.
Our Hoosierland weather will have us with dry conditions (well, we need to dry OUT), with temps reaching around 80 degrees.
The humidity will hang around as the day progresses, so, it will feel more like summer later today.
We're even supposed to see some SUNSHINE...(yay, us)
In the meantime, let's grab a soothing drink and set about seeing what else has been going on...
*** First out of the culvert is our 'What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
June 9 -
---Today is DONALD DUCK DAY
Here is a WIKI for our friend from Disney:
I'm sure in this overly "PC" world, Donald is a lot "better behaved" than in those humorous times past.
Yes, they even manage to change the way we grow up...pretty sad.
*** Next up, is our salute to the idiots, imbeciles and morons who don't believe in public safety OR responsible gun ownership.

Did NOT know that D-DAY was a cause for fireworks being set off...
And we're not EVEN into the CORRECT time of year when such things are allowed (which, to me is way too many days!
But, it's better to be entertained than EDUCATED, it would appear.
*** Next up, one of the reasons I resist posting on various social media sites are those that have points of contention with you...and don't "do their homework", when it comes to information gathering.
WANE (Disqus) page...where you can comment (when it's not deleted by the leftists running it).
One person suggested in lieu of all the robberies that clerks should pack some heat, and I followed up in agreement citing the case back in January 2009 at the Belmont Beverage store where one clerk was shot in the leg, returned fire and shot the robber in the gut. The robber staggered into Tillman Rd where he died, and relieved this city of further thefts and other crimes.
I documented it here, but the J-G removed the story from their archive, so my link is invalid.
Not to worry...here is another site with the story FROM the J-G in it's entirety I do MY homework - the Internet CAN be useful):
|Belmont Beverage homicide - From 2009|
Wifey and I drove past it THIS weekend, and the place is OPEN (as the cars in the parking lot will attest to, and the LED sign out front that shows various sale items).
--One person on the WANE site would have me believe otherwise, and says I'm incorrect.
Sorry, but if he drove past (or stopped inside) he would know differently.
All this person had to do was a search using the right parameters...no big deal. I even tossed a link to WPTA with the story (which has the address - 1414 E. Tillman).
Now, unless the store closed Sunday, it's still open
I won't do Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media stuff because I live around stupid people (who chose to move here, thanks to HUD), and have absolutely NO desire to find any MORE.
*** While we're on the subject of crime...the Waynedale Pizza Hut was targeted last night (yes, in the rain), when an employee was "relieved" of the night bank deposit bag.
This took place around 2030 hrs at the Pizza Hut located at 6809 Bluffton Rd (Wifey and I used to eat there every Wednesday years ago...good dinner buffet)
I guess someone got a "promotion" from robbing all the dollar stores?
|Perp's not there for the stuffed crust...|
In any event, a BLACK MALE (approx 5'11", 180 lbs, between the ages of 19-23) was the perp, and police found a black FAKE gun nearby, along with the deposit bag and a black shirt - many of these robbers tend to LAYER clothing, even in warmer weather...for obvious reasons, so if someone is wearing a puffy jacket in July, police "might" want to stop and ask him "how 'ya doing?", if you get my drift..
|Quick - WHICH gun is the REAL one?|
People might want to brush up on REAL v FAKE handguns...just sayin'...
((btw - the one in the MIDDLE is the real one))
*** Next, today is Wifey's last day for school, and that means she'll be "at my mercy" until school begins anew in August (before my birthday...alone again).
"Fortress"...things to do, people to see, and all the other good stuff.
Hard to cram so much into such a short period of time, but we try.
*** Next up, have you seen that video in Texas regarding that "pool party" that got way out of hand when some people from other neighborhoods crashed the party?
|THIS was a good segment.|
Now, the officer initially involved has been "suspended" (call it administrative leave), but he was the FIRST officer on scene and had to wait until other officers responded to what became a fracas at the community pool. Trying to get control of over 100 people IS a chore.
DID live there even said this was uncalled for.
Should the officer have pulled his sidearm?
That's debatable, given the nature of these teens, their non-compliance with orders to sit down (some DID), and this overwhelming want to "egg on" law-enforcement in cities all over this country, as if to say "go ahead...we'll video you doing something wrong", when the ENTIRE story is not revealed by the lame-stream media.
The race-baiters KNOW this, and play to the media, calling for "justice".
In fact, these people are causing quite the REVERSE by their actions and rhetoric.
The scary thing about scenarios like this...they can happen in ANY city or town where there is a minority community with some "ax to grind" against authority. And sad to say, we will see more of this before it runs it's course.
*** Last back to the downspout...situations such as the one in Texas, or the hip-hop concert in NJ (where state police had to get involved with people trying to get in without paying)...and even as far back as Ferguson...it's always about PEOPLE.
HELP...from people. Always have, always will.
There are those who like to stir the pot...hell, I'm one of them, but there is a difference between me and all those other pot-stirring people.
I do it with purpose, with facts, and with a goal of making things better...for everyone, small as my "voice in the wilderness" is these days.
Those others do their pot-stirring without facts and without reason, but they do have a purpose, and that is anarchy.
What other purpose would they have?
They look for things that aren't; there, lie through their teeth on a chronic basis, and they have those in power who would foster and promote their agenda.
That's not the best recipe for UNITY in this country.
But, all this started a LONG time ago...with the Jim Crow Laws, and that is something we need to examine.
Perhaps such laws never needed to be enacted.
I firmly believe that.
They alone set race relations back decades in their time, and it wasn't until the 1960s when REAL changes were made to correct that.
So, yes, there are those who are only predatory by nature, and we're talking the two-footed variety here.
There are those who seek to TAKE, rather than produce.
There are those who want from others, rather than working for it themselves.
And there are those who demand everything and give back nothing.
Sadly, this country has bowed to the absurd in this case, and we're ALL paying the piper for this tune.
A return to ethical behavior and civility is long overdue, don'cha think?
We need something (and pretty damn soon), because what we're settling for these days just isn't cutting it...is it?
Stay SAFE out there, America
