It's going to have a bit of a "tropical" feel outside (I call it muggy, but not in a personal assault manner that takes place where we live daily) as the day goes on.
Our Hoosierland weather will see us with temps starting out already in the upper 60s, heading to an expected high of around 88 degrees. Expect mostly cloudy skies and rising humidity (gonna feel uncomfortable during the heat of the day). Take the proper precautions if outside.
Now, what say we get ourselves that thirst-quenching drink and take a look at what is going on elsewhere, hmm?
*** First off of the LZ is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence."
WHO said that?
The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the College of William and Mary...
*** Next up we have our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
July 6 -
---Today is NATIONAL FRIED CHICKEN DAY
And that's all we have, but it still is NATIONAL NUDE RECREATION WEEK, so if you feel the need, remember that descretion is paramount.
*** Next up, we have our 18TH HOMICIDE in Fort Wayne!
Here's the story (so far):
|Another "in-vehicle" fatal shooting.|
After officers arrived on scene for responding to a personal injury call, they found a man and woman sitting in a vehicle in the 3500 block. The man was found to have been shot and was pronounced dead. The woman was unharmed.
Police were told a man walked up to the vehicle and fired inside. Shell casings were found in the street. The man managed to drive one block before hitting a tree. The victim was most likely a black male.
(who else parks along a ghettohood street after 1 AM?)
---Important safety tip: DON'T park along the SE side streets after DARK. The life you save just may be YOUR OWN.
*** Next up, yes, ANOTHER fire at another VACANT house.
NE quadrant of the city.
The odd thing about THIS fire is that the same house caught fire before.
Enough damage was sustained to the structure that it was unsafe for firefighters to enter to put the fire out.
Even the FWFD is looking at this fire as "suspicious".
Yeah, it's gotta be arson.
*** Next up, whatever credibility I placed in our own F.B.I. director, James Comey, took a severe blow yesterday at the presser he gave in lieu of the Hillary investigation dealing with her personal "server" and emails after Benghazi.
Here's his statement:
|A "WHISKEY-TANGO-FOXTROT?" moment.|
|Sorry, I don't want THIS running MY country.|
If any of US were culpable in a like manner such as Clinton, we'd be before a grand jury and probably convicted as a result of OUR actions.
"Teflon Don" as it were. Makes John Gotti look pale by comparison.
People have been charged AND convicted for a lot less boht in and out of our government.
Judge Jeanine Pirro had a marvelous take on this:
|She can be MY judge ANY day, and she's CORRECT!|
And she should know...she DOES know the law (and how they were blatantly disregarded and openly broken in this instance..
Trump called this one right, too.
|Okay, she DID get this one right.|
I feel bad for those deluded people that are still backing "Crooked Hillary".
*** Next, we bring you some of the fallout from our 4th of July festivities.
"Fortress" for the refuse caused by the aerial pyrotechnics. And we didn't come away empty-handed.
I actually found one of the long-rockets sticking out of our front rain gutter!
Nice to pick up OTHER peoples' crap, but, you get used to that stuff living down here.
---Oh, and if you think that was it for the aftermath,...think again.
Here's a story that spells things out for those who have no "voice":
|I'll come out when the booms stop.|
Let's call it a RESCUE of those pets, shall we?
How FAIR is that to all the owners who have to trek out and get those animals back?
(they also have to pay a damn fee to do so).
Charge those who shot off those loudass pyrotechnics.
And, this wasn't JUST in Fort Wayne:
Thanks to inconsiderate people, animals have to suffer. Sounds about right.
Sorry, but more of a curfew on such fireworks COULD alleviate a lot of those runaways.
|We all didn't mean to run away.|
Back in Philly, our German Shepherd (Heidi) was such a dog...great pet, but let there be some loud noise outside, and she'd want IN the damn closet...she'd claw at the door to get in.
A shame to see that.
*** Last back to the hangar...People are the problem in our world, and people are also the solution.
It's true, but in order to SOLVE such a problem, there HAS to be people of good repute and character to fight that good fight. Finding them isn't as easy as you would think.
We often create our OWN problems, no matter how large or small they may be.
And, just as often, we find ways to overcome our problems and move forward in our lives.
But, when a certain mindset or misplaced set of values that benefit few and hurt the many, which permeates deep enough so as to affect everyone along the way comes along, something MUST be done to eradicate or at least neutralize it.
This is where such things like that character, and integrity, and wisdom rise to the occasion.
GOOD values and solid morally-based principles take their proper place in our society, to oust the EVIL intent of those with an agenda that runs counter to what THIS nation stands for.
And, if enough people do small things to aid in such an endeavor, there will be a change for the better for everyone.
Railing against corruptive influences, seeking TRUE justice when and where it's needed, and taking to heart that upon which our nation was created can all serve to make that happen.
I think many of you would agree on this, because it's the truth...and we live as free people.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
