Welcome to September, and all that it has in store for us. Don't forget to flip the calendars.
The Hoosierland weather today will be a close copy of yesterday...
If you like it HOT, you'll like today.
Temps are expected to be tickling the upper 80s (maybe even 90). Naturally, ANY humidity in the air will make it feel even more oppressive.
(what, are liberals ALSO running the weather these days? LOL)
So get that morning drink alongside you (just not TOO near that keyboard) as we set off on another jaunt in the trek we call life.
*** First out of the sweat-box is our salute to this month with ALL the notable things that occur:
Classical Music Month
September 1 -
---Today is NATIONAL CHICKEN BOY'S DAY
Okay, so we're talking guys who dress AS chickens to promote some food joint...got it.
---And, it's NATIONAL NO RHYME (NOR REASON) DAY
PART of this, believe it or else...today celebrates words in the English language that DO NOT rhyme with ANY other word.
The word MOUTH would be another example (and now you know more than you did 30 seconds ago).
*** Next up, some updates on Fort Wayne's latest homicides...
1) Here's the story about the slain teenager on Schaper Drive:
Now, I "could" say how her parents might have been a bit on the irresponsible side, but I won't because in THIS day and age, uninvited "guests" at ANY get-together can turn DEADLY, knowing the penchant for violence that SOME people display.
I know this would be UNHEARD of in MY day..parents HAD to know WHERE you were, WHO you were with and WHEN you would be home (and that was based on times set BY the parents, and NOT negotiable).
Yeah, it was a brutal and oppressive time for teens in the late '60s...but guess what?
2) Here's the next update from the shooting on 6000 Salisbury Drive:
|Nice mug shot, Ma.|
3) And here's the update for the fatal stabbing in the 3400 block of S. Hanna St:
|He's got "killer eyes".|
I suppose it was easy to arrest this guy...not that many whites are left down here (even if they're really from ANGOLA)...lol
And, I stand corrected - not ALL the victims were BLACK...seems we've had a cornucopia of ethnicities in this spate of homicides.
Guess our city is "more diverse" even when it comes to killings.
*** And since we're talking about CRIME, let's take a look at ALL the police calls the media hasn't found AS newsworthy as they should be.

*** Next up, our "Blamer-in-Chief" finds it "important" that HE rename Mt McKinley to the native name of DENALI.
Now, I appreciate the fact that MANY areas in America can have TWO NAMES...usually a "given" name, and another name, perhaps of (or from) an indigenous native tribe origin...got NO problem with that.
Devil's Tower comes to mind...check that out. Also, Mt Rushmore has "another" name..
|Liberal Swiss army knife.|
It's all about his LEGACY, as in trying to bolster one up where there should be NONE at all.
This man (and his minions) have done MORE to tear down the values and principles of our nation than all the other similar people throughout our history COMBINED.
Worse than FDR, and even worse than Woodrow Wilson.
Show me ONE instance where anything Obummer has done in office that has BENEFITED this country overall?
|That's our Obummer!|
And yet, there are those sheeple that still follow this man blindly, without question.
(those will probably be the first to go if the zombie apocalypse comes...thankfully, lol)
I wish this poser-in-chief would just STFD and STFU...period.
Every time he opens his damn mouth or grabs a damn pen, he WEAKENS this nation.
There is no evidence that he has EVER had a love of this country, or wanted to make us better...quite the reverse.
He should just go BACK to Kenya, and become a KING there...he'd fit right in as a dictator or tribal chief.
*** Last back to the barracks...the comments above are purely MY take on what I see happening across our nation.
And it concerns all of us, or it should.
We have become a nation that (for some odd reason) seems to want to settle for MEDIOCRITY, and be fine with calling it the "new normal".
THAT line of PC-BS at all.
This nation has proven time and again (throughout it's short history) WHY we have been the best country on the planet, but we've lost much in recent times, thanks to the allowance of liberal agendas to produce a country of lemmings.
We can always do better, both personally as well as collectively, and there's no reason why we should NOT want to, because other nations look to us.
That number is fewer than in decades past, though...we need to change that.
A tougher stance in war, and a tougher stance on our streets...THAT is the way to minimize the evil that permeates our society.
We used to stand for something more noble as a nation..time to get off the couch and do it again, lest we become like other countries that have succumbed to similar circumstances.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
