And, it's been one soggy-ass week at that, hasn't it?
(we're not done with the rain just yet)
We're also staring at the ONLY Friday the 13th this year (next year, we get two).
So, no walking under ladders, or letting black cats cross your path...kapeesh?
Meanwhile, our Hoosierland weather will see us with mostly sunny skies, mild breezes, and temps reaching to around 67 degrees. Ah, a nice respite between weather fronts. Get that gardening stuff done TODAY.
So, without any further ado, let's get that morning drink poured and parked close by, as we see what's going on elsewhere, shall we?

(and to keep you off the streets and out of jail)
*** Next, another one of those "shooting-dropoffs" at one of our hospitals.
Here's the story link (such as it is so far):
M.O. for those in the ghettohood these days.
I mean, who wants a ride in an ambulance, when you can bleed in a friend's ride, right?
This took place today around 0300 hrsat a medical center located in the 700 block of Braodway. The driver left the building before police could arrive (don't they ALWAYS?)
The victim had a gunshot wound to the neck and is listed in critical condition and was taken to another facility.
FWPD investigators are (what else) investigating the hell out of this to determine the location of the shooting,
(my bets are for the SE side...c'mon now, who ELSE is up at those hours, plays with guns, and causes mayhem but black males or maybe an Hispanic now and then, right?)
*** Next up, and speaking of our ghettohood black males, we have THIS little gem:
Police saw the driver and passengers toss narcotics and handguns out of the windows of the vehicle.
A Ruger P85 went through the windshield of an unoccupied car, as the driver sped down Pennsylvania Ave, and a Glock 19 was found in the same block. The three bailed and attempted to run, but were stopped by a barbed wire fence.
Arrested were Kareem Jerome McPherson, 33, of DETROIT, Ashton Demontre Buchanan, 25, and Varnell David Coe, 25, of REDFORD, MICHIGAN.

Sure glad we're not having perps from OTHER areas come to OUR city to sell drugs, carry illegal guns and create chaos...aren't YOU?
Now, all three are facing a slew of charges both large and small, but in ALL of those charges brought against these three, not ONE mention of LITTERING....I mean WTH? You always let the small shit slide? LOL!
*** Next up, so our outgoing (and not soon enough) "prez" has decided to stick his sorry ass into the whole SCHOOL BATHROOM ISSUE (no real pun intended there...lol).
Here's the story link:
Who the F*CK allows these delusional assholes to permit this kind of sick "edict" ??? We live in frigging Venezuela now?
Transgender bathroom (and locker rooms) in our SCHOOLS???
Scads of teens, pre-teens, tweens, and elementary age kids all choosing WHICH restroom to change clothes, take a piss or crap in? Are you kidding me?
This president is totally OUT of control.
Our educational system IS in the toilet, I'll give you that one, but really, this has got to be the final straw. I'd love to see such an uprising and push back AGAINST (stupid-ass) mandates like these, that ALL those federal agencies will back the hell off and crawl BACK under the rocks that came from, including YOU, "mister president".
|Not enough lines blurred in society?|
*** Next, let's change gears...yes, I did in fact mow the back yard (again) yesterday morning.
|Sweet...and somewhat serene.|
And, as usual, I had my "supervisor" stop by to monitor my progress.
|Stop taking pictures and get back to mowing, Bob.|
Always nice to have a sense of accomplishment, especially in an area where our "Fortress" stands.
*** Last back to the vegetable garden...every single day, we hear of more lunacy taking place in our society (and the world in general).
If this isn't BIZARRO WORLD, it should be. We're becoming deserving of the moniker.
And too many of us are just allowing it to unfold in front of our eyes, without saying "boo".
THAT has got to change before we lose this country to the bay-shit crazy lunatics who appear to be in the process of taking over the asylum. We cannot permit that to occur.
The one officer that chased down those 3 perps that were speeding was proving that The Broken Window Theory DOES WORK...stop the small crap before it becomes the BIG crap.
DOLLARS AND CENTS at the exclusion of COMMON SENSE?
Seems they tossed out the latter for the former, and that's not helping ANY of the kids, or our educational system, and certainly not the future of our society.
Our liberties and freedoms are at risk, make no mistake about that.
And they won't be taken away in some widespread wholesale manner; it will be done in such small and seemingly "innocent" increments, that we'll barely notice.
So far, it seems to be working, and that's a scary portent to a much larger and impending problem, which could well plunge us into anarchy, socialism...or worse (if you can imagine that).
|Let's practice Occam's Razor on this one, folks.|
We need to stand OUR ground, and never give an inch, and we must retain that which this country was founded upon, and it certainly wasn't what we're seeing today.
Only THEN, will we rise again to where this nation belongs as a world LEADER...and not some here today, gone tomorrow politically-correct "trend-setter".
Therein lies the message for today.
Have yourselves a great weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
