Tuesday Tidbits...
Well, that was something you don't see that often in recent Indiana history...RAIN!
(uh, oh...here he goes again)
Yeah, another gully-washing rain, sure to ruin crops statewide, and flood homes once again.
Will someone tell me when THIS state became the new southeast Asian monsoon season?
(seems like we're trying to get there).
Our Hoosierland weather today will have us seeing partly cloudy skies, light breezes and a high of around the lower 80s.
Oh, and a good chance of some (more) thundershowers later in the day (into the evening)
Guess we could ALL predict that one, hmm?
Anyway, let's grab a tall soothing morning drink, and take this show on the road, so we can see what's been happening..
*** First out of the run-off ditch is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
July 14 -
--- Today is BASTILLE DAY (well, not here - just in France, where they DIDN'T invent french fries)
Here's some backstory to their version of the "revolution":
(didn't turn out as WELL as ours...just sayin')
Just ANOTHER day for us on the SE side...
(where nothing can be predicted and everything can go wrong)
Where do they keep finding ALL these event days that pertain to OUR part of Fort Wayne?
((...blink, blink...))
Yeah...right...sure....(the missus better leave me alone on this one...lol)
Well, infants get a "pass" 'cause they're cute and innocent (and need changing a lot)...
*** And being it's Tuesday, time for ALL the shots fired across town plus all those wonderful armed robbery calls that the media NEVER tells us about.
Let's see where the fun took place last week...
(and feel free to pick up "the trash.")

Well, there you go then...we definitely have a PEOPLE problem when it comes to OBEYING the laws, don't we?
A blind man could see this one.
Moving on...
*** Next up, a story about a perp, a river, and an easy capture...
Here's the story link:
Deonta - whatta dumbass.
Deonta Arrington was the unfortunate, and possible would-be robber of a Burger King located in the 2500 blk of Spy Run Ave. around 0600 hrs, where police had been tailing his silver Impala in connection to other armed robberies.
When police noticed Arrington in the drive-thru and then enter the BK (where he was seen to be "acting strange").
The store manager got the attention of the officer, and pointed to the kitchen, where Arrington had run out the back door.
A brief foot pursuit ensued, where Arrington got hung up on a thorn bush.
It was right after he freed himself from the bush that he fell into the St. Joe River and was swept two block downstream, before being taken into custody.
Inside his Impala, police found an ASSAULT RIFLE, along with several items of clothing, including black gloves.
The car was impounded as part of the investigation.
But Deonta doesn't have to worry about being a pedestrian - he got a FREE RIDE downtown to the local JAIL (and some new DRY clothes, too no doubt...hope he likes ORANGE).
Arrington was charged with resisting law enforcement and possession of a firearm by a known violent felon.
And here is his RAP SHEET:

*** Next up, did you know that a NEW study  claims that the SOUTH SIDE of Fort Wayne has (I hope you are sitting down for this)...
NO...F$CKING...SHIT...cripes almighty...
Well, gee, 'YA THINK???
And they STILL haven't found a DAMN thing!
What the hell have I been saying for damn near a DECADE?
And this "lack of vision" is nothing "new"...cripes it goes back to the Win Moses era in this city, and has not changed one damn bit since.
Not hard at all to figure it out, right?
We don't have squat here anymore (we've literally lost HUNDREDS of stores/businesses over just the last dozen years), so that HAS to mean we have PLENTY of space available for SOMETHING (other than effin low-income housing), right?
Here's the story link from WANE:
How quaint, they even include a MAP showing ALL the EMPTY SPACES (which WANE did a series back in 2013 ( "The Big Empty"), and one can also add in the series "Is Fort Wayne Really A Dangerous Place?", because THAT series is at the heart of the matter whenever it comes to development.
Giving an "F" is still being TOO kind.
Remember the story about that one developer (Don Steininger) who was saying just last month (as I have said ad nauseum) that it was the CRIME that was a BIG DETERRENT to development down here?
Wow...look at ALL that NOTHING!
A link to his interview is at the site, or you can check my archives from June 2015.
As long as the CRIME proliferates (as is evidenced in JUST the calls I post here once a week) developers are going to be extremely reluctant to "take a chance" with a business.
The ONLY "game" down here these days.
Hell, one has ONLY to reference all the recent "dollar store" robberies (granted not ALL the robberies occurred on the SOUTH side), and see what a RISK is run with certain businesses.
Add to that, the possibility that those robbers ARE indeed hailing from the SOUTHEAST side of town, and you can easily see it's not even close to being a good environment for new business ventures.
Anyone remember the Southgate (Foot Locker) kidnapping and robbery?
The best they have to offer?
What about the liquor stores robbed, or Kroger having carts of booze stroll out the door...all perpetrated by BLACK MALES...liker they don't have anything BETTER to do, right?
It's not the business community that is failing the SOUTH SIDE of Fort Wayne...it's the BLACK COMMUNITY   that has failed ITSELF (and the city) because of it's own inherent disdain for believing that THEY are at the root of the problems down here.
That community would RATHER look elsewhere, like at the local law-enforcement, or the city to piss and moan about housing (which many of them seem to trash not long after they move in).
I have SEEN what such people bring to a neighborhood, and it's not even close to rainbows, unicorns, and lollipops, folks.
It's everything that could be dredged up from the low-information and callously disrespectful flotsam that is passing for ethnic humanity.
A damn shame the older blacks are dying off...they used to be able to CORRAL such behavior, but with an entitlement society running THEIR lives, that has fallen by the wayside.
*** Last back to the mud puddle...sure, OUR part of town needs a serious "reboot" when it comes to BUSINESS, but moreover, it REALLY needs an infusion of DECENT PEOPLE...period.
We need folks who VALUE what they work for and earn in life, and appreciate the fact that they live in the best damn nation on the planet, in spite of what this president is attempting to do to uproot what we call AMERICAN VALUES AND PRINCIPLES.
One would think that if someone is GIVEN something, they would pretty much take it and shut up, but not these days...
Today, they who receive all this free shit are NEVER content and certainly are NEVER appreciative...they just want MORE, and will stop at damn near nothing to obtain it...that is NOT the way this nation used to operate.
Like I say, we used to be SO damn much better than this, but I see this devolving of society, and that will never bode well for anyone.
And it IS always about the RIGHT choice.
If people cannot be made to be held accountable, or refuse to accept responsibility, maybe they don't need to be living HERE, and enjoying the fruits of their labors.
Hell, if they could comprehend WHAT is meant by achievement, we probably wouldn't even be having this discussion.
We can ALWAYS do better, and we should, if not for others, then at least...for OURSELVES.
Be well, make a difference to someone, and...
Stay SAFE out there, America.

It's Pandemonium Day AND National Nude Day? Hmmm, I wonder if those two are somehow related. Seems like they could be... :)

John D.:
'Ya know...I hadn't even thought of that one...lol.

I keep wondering why all the people who LOVE being nude are the ones that we DON'T need to SEE in that "condition"?

I'm sure that in "the land of fruits and nuts" this IS a big deal...and is also a place where we CAN find out that ALL men are NOT "created equal".

Thanks much for stopping on by today and commenting.

Stay safe out there.

Okay, from the bottom up again:

-"..an infusion of DECENT PEOPLE..." Good idea, but they go for about $2,500 an ounce these days...

- An assault rifle? well, that shoots four or five more dead hoods down the drain, huh?

Rumor is that Deonta is Swahili for "that which flows from the cloaca is dribbling from my ear". Roughly speaking, that is.

-Well at least we know that French spammers don't take Bastille day off. I'll bet I've got 20% of my total French "views" in the last two days.

Bob G. said...

I like the idea of you using the "bottom's Up" manner.
(do I need a baby picture now?)

---Wow, they cost THAT much...MORE THAN GOLD...OR PLATINUM.
(I now know MT worth...LOL)
---Yeah, but the way THESE mooks go "hunting", they can't even hit a bull in the ass with a bass fiddle.
They'll cap off an entire MAG before they make ONE GOOD HIT.
They are, if nothing else, professionals when it comes to WASTE.
---LMAO - love that Swahili translation...spot on.
---I got NO idea why that is with the French...they are such a curious people

Thanks for swinging on by today to comment.

Stay safe up there, brother.
