It won't be long before we start seeing Christmas decorations in stores, trust me. You can almost smell it.
Still, we've a way to go until that time.
Our Hoosierland weather will see us with another fair day (no rain like yesterday), but with a high of only around 67 degrees.
I can hear people digging out the flannel shirts and long pants already.
It's a fine send-off to this month and a great way to welcome October, right?
We're not expected to cross the 70-degree mark for the remainder of the week, according to the forecast.
So what say we get that morning drink poured as we see what's going on in some other places, hmm?
*** First out of the toolbox is out WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day.
Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character."
LACK such things), this would fill the bill, as it were.
So, WHO said that anyway?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the 69th Olympiad...
*** Next, we have our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
September 30 -
---Today is NATIONAL CHEWING GUM DAY
Make mine Big Red, or Beemans.
---It's also NATIONAL MUD PACK DAY.
---It's NATIONAL HOT MULLED CIDER DAY.
MULLET cider...lol That would be a bit awkward.)
---It's also NATIONAL WOMEN'S HEALTH AND FITNESS DAY.
---And finally it's BLASPHEMY DAY
(like we don't already have ENOUGH of them JUST in Washington D.C., or anyplace else "Caesar rules". Where's Chuck Heston when we NEED him, hmm?
*** Wow, another FWPD standoff.
Here's the story:
This took place yesterday in the 900 block of Lake Ave around 1254 hrs, when police were serving an "emergent detention order" to a man at the house.
Having created a 3-block perimeter and taping it off, police were able to persuade the man to exit the house. The police robot was sent in to see if the place was indeed set with explosive devices.
None were found and the man told police he wanted it to "look" like it was booby-trapped.
He was taken to hospital for evaluation.
(hey, maybe he can chat with that roof-walker and they can talk prescription medications for psychotic episodes?)
*** Next up, we had a "pink-in" downtown yesterday afternoon, and it was the "we want Planned Parenthood" crowd.
|When did selling unborn baby body parts |
become a GOP "smear" campaign?
Just not in the areas they "claim" to be promoting.
And my REALLY big contention with this, is that this "franchise", for lack of a better word, based throughout the USA is NOT part of ANY government in these United States...never has been.
It's a "private business", if you will...kinda like Pizza Hut, or Cap N Cork, or Krogers, or even a hair salon.
Don't see any of THEM getting funding from the FEDS.do we?
Trouble I have with this is that THESE people are GOVERNMENT-FUNDED to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars...and to promote WHAT "agenda", EXACTLY?
Wholesale slaughter (let's call it MURDER) of unborn infants?
Has life become THAT disposable...like a plastic water bottle or diaper?
Just toss it away...nothing to see here.
I think it's about time the people running this got caught with their hands in the damn cookie jar (and in the taxpayers' pockets).
What makes the FEDS think it's OKAY to fund ONE private business and not every other one?
Why choose THIS one, and WHY spend ALL the peoples' money to fund it? I personally have NO vested interest in this business.
This is another instance of government OVERREACH - and it's a COSTLY one (aren't they all with these mooks?)
The government has NO business being in the business of FUNDING a business...got it?
|That's the problem.|
Save the PINK for Susan G Komen and cancer awareness and stop hijacking an honestly GOOD cause and strapping it to this crap.
To the protesters I would advise them to "take the time to EDUCATE YOURSELVES...you might like it."
*** Next up...apparently, I wasn't the ONLY person who felt "slighted" by the Fort 4 Fitness events this past weekend.
(( Parks, trails better Fort4Fitness location
With the scores and scores of beautiful parks that Fort Wayne is blessed with, and the miles and miles and miles of Rivergreenway and trails connecting everything from Aboite to Leo-Cedarville, there is no justification whatsoever to disrupt traffic and commerce across such a wide swath of the city as happened because of Fort4Fitness.
It’s a recreational/sporting event. Keep it in the parks and on the trails where it belongs.
Fort Wayne ))
THAT makes a helluva lot MORE sense than using the city STREETS...I mean the city took the time to BUILD all the damn river-greenway trails and such, so why NOT use it as the perfect venue for the runners?
There's no manhole covers to trip over, either...lol.
And the last time I checked, the vehicular traffic in the parks and trails was NON-existent, so it's much safer for everyone involved..
|LOTS of room to run....!|
It's much better for all the participants.
I rest my case.
*** Last back to the workbench...one of the things I find so very curious about our species is the inherent manner in which we practice DUPLICITY.
MANY appeals (that failed, obviously).
We had scores of people decrying the taking of just ONE life.
On the OTHER hand, we have Planned Parenthood which, in many cases has been GUILTY of the slaughter of millions of unborn fetuses (and for PROFIT, to boot).
SPARED the indignity (?) of a sentence to death, while angrily demonstrating to KEEP Planned Parenthood up, open and thriving...STILL at the taxpayers' expense.
Why can there never be any form of true CONSENSUS here?
Either EVERYONE'S life matters...or NO ONE'S life matters...it seems such a simple twosome to choose from.
ALL this divisive intent being perpetrated against us every single day.
I will grant you that there ARE those people who have demonstrated to all of us in no certain terms that they have abused the right to live, based on their heinous and criminal actions and behaviors, and DO need to be put down and out of OUR misery, but to summarily DENY life to those who don't even any hope or chance of proving to the rest of us that they could possibly be a more contributive person to our society is the worst kind of crime.
We need to stop this picking and choosing with random abandon when it comes to life.
The BAD people get what's coming to them - the good people get the RIGHT to life.
It's that simple, but when we allow the laws of man to trump the right on an unborn individual to life, we dismiss part of our own humanity.
I would like to believe that in THIS country, we have become better than that.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
