Our Hoosierland weather will see a slight change in the weather rut we've been "enjoying", with mostly sunny skies, and temps only reaching into the low-to-mid 80s (that's a cool down? Maybe in Death Valley).
What say we get ourselves a nice tall glass (or big cup) of that Friday Fortitude poured, because, if for no other reason, I think we all will be needing it, as we see what is going on elsewhere...

So there you have it. Plenty of things to wrap your synapses around and have fun with
And remember to always enjoy responsibly.
*** Next up, a black man who fired several shots into a white Indy officer's house (when his wife an son were inside)days after the Dallas police killings, gets busted and charged.
This piece of crap is OFF the streets down there and is being held WITHOUT BOND (fantastic).
The perp, March E. Ratney, 27 is facing one count of criminal recklessness, and a felon in possession of a handgun.
He has a LENGTHY rap sheet to boot, with former charges of handgun violence.
Only took police a half hour to find and arrest his sorry ass, too.
He just got out of jail (on parole) last month for doing a 6 (of 12) year stint for prior possession of firearms by a violent felon conviction. Bet he didn't BUY this last pistol LEGALLY.
Even though Ratney was wearing a t-shirt with police obscenities on the front (and black lives matter on the back) the police chief stated that Ratney's actions should not reflect in nay way on the BLM movement.
Nice "two-step", chief. Covering your ass, I see. Can't call it for what it is. I understand completely.
*** Next up, it appears that Trump is calling on our Governor, Mike Pence as his VP running mate.
"..allow me to postulate a scenario that could, in fact turn Indiana from a republican state into a dumbocratic state"...something I hope does not happen.
|Sure feels like we've already arrived.|
Evan Bayh is also seeking the U.S. senate seat, and with the "name recognition" might just get it.
Too many voters are so damn stupid, they run with whoever sounds familiar (or gives away the most free stuff).
Now, since Pence is running with Trump, he HAS to drop out of the governor spot for re-election...fair enough.
But, what if Trump does NOT win the presidency?
Then everyone gets boned.
Indiana become a democrat run state, with a dem governor, and dem senators, and all but assures another state behind whoever runs for any higher level political office. Got that?
And, just suppose that ALL of this potential scenario was purposely orchestrated by one Donald J. Trump to ensure democrats in the White House (for another 4-8 years)? It does have all the makings of some TV show, and we'll all be biting our nails waiting for the "season finale" to unveil itself.
All you Hoosiers (as well as the rest of America) get screwed, blued, and tattooed, and the libtards run the show.
It's just a possibility that I've batted about, and one that no one in the news seems to have thought about.
Let's all hope for a better outcome. Wouldn't mind being wrong in this case.
*** Next up, Bill O'Reilly had a fantastic take on Obama and race this week with his column.
Now, I know many of you (including me) have never heard of professor Roland Fryer, Jr. who teaches economics at Harvard.
Fryer (who is black, BTW) did a study (and a damn good one) about police brutality, found no disparity when it came to police shootings.
There is also Heather MacDonald (of the Manhattan Institute), who states that the BLM movement is a fiction created after the lies in Ferguson.
What all this boils down to is simple. Obummer deals in fiction and EMOTION - he plays on the heart-strings of people (like any decent community organizer and activist), whereas Fryer and MacDonald deal with FACTS.
This is a good read, and I encourage all of you to give it a look-see.
*** Last back to the sofa...people will believe anything if told often enough and long enough.
THEM in the end, did it?
What WE choose to believe these days is probably more important than anything that's come down the pike in generations past.
That's why it's paramount that we "learn to discern".
(Wow, I'm sounding like Rev. Bill McGill now...lol)
If we are becoming too "busy" having our attention, which SHOULD be focused on important matters, diverted in ways we've yet to discover, then we could well find ourselves on the road to perdition.
(and that road hasn't seen repairs for a LONG time, given the number of those who travel it)
WHY people choose to make those bad choices. You'd think it would be easy enough to know right from wrong...unless those wrongs are all fancied up to appear seemingly better than all the rights, which I think is the case today. People seek the easier path, the leisurely path...the wider path (that others are on), rather than a path that may have some brambles, a few rocks, and a rut or two along the way.
Perhaps some people think that whatever lies they're being told "don't matter much"...well, they DO and they WILL, make no mistake about that.
We all need to get curious (about things that matter) once again...ask questions, demand answers (and truthful ones for a change), and when we don't get those, brush aside the liars, the cheats and the thieves in our government and our lives.
That just might get some attention and steer this nation back on the course that divine providence had set for us many, many years ago. We'll never know unless we all try, as the alternative will surely take us places we dare not think about. Therein lies the lesson for today.
Do have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
