It will feel a lot like Monday, but only because our weather conditions will mirror that of the start of this week...and yesterday. I like to call these "ditto-days".
Our Hoosierland weather will find us with mostly sunny skies, temps once again back into the lower 80s and no rain in the immediate forecast.
Must be great to be a weather person on days like these...just xerox the previous day and read that report...lol.
Anyway, let's all get ourselves a cup or glass of our favorite morning drink to bolster our resolve, as we see what's been going on elsewhere, shall we?
*** First out of the bird's nest is our WHO SAID THAT? quote of the week:
"If you look in general at people who live in anarchy, they have quite high rates of death from either homicide or warfare or both. Anarchy is one of the main reasons for violence, and it may be the most important."
It would seem that such words carry great power with them these days, not that we could do without all the violence surrounding us.
So, WHO said that? The answer at the top of tomorrow's post.
Meanwhile, back at the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience...
*** Next up is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
SEPTEMBER 21 -
---Today is NATIONAL PECAN COOKIE DAY
---It's also the U.N. International day of peace
(ROFLMAO...yeah, like that means anything to those jerks)
*** Next, yesterday was a pretty interesting day on the (...all together boys and girls...) SOUTHEAST side of the city.
Here's the latest:
The headline sort of says it all, but it SHOULD read SOUTHEAST SIDE streets.
(for that is where all this minority mayhem took place)
Let's try and follow the time line...
---The first shooting took place around 1225 hrs in the area of Warsaw and St. Martins Sts, where police found a man suffering from gunshot wounds.
---The second shooting took place about 1245 hrs at a house located at 4033 Lillie St.
Both victims were taken to hospital and listed in critical condition.
---The third shooting took place around 2300 hrs at 4131 Avondale Drive, where police responded to a shots fired call and found one person dead at the scene.
Police said they heard shots before they were called to that scene.
Okay kids, that now brings the total number of homicides in our fair city this year to 35 (that'sTHIRTY-FIVE).
And we've plenty of year remaining.
Please take the time to update your deadpools.
It would seem that in certain ethnic neighborhoods, anarchy (to some extent) is very alive and doing very well. Black lives don't matter there, that's for sure.
*** Next, it looks like two more cities in America are "under the gun" so to speak.
---First, a story from Tulsa, Oklahoma:
(and PCP was said to have been found in the victim's SUV)
---And then we have another incident in Charlotte, NC:
Looting at a Wal-Mart there sure tells me otherwise when it comes to protesting anything.
Just another excuse for savage primates to go on another rampage.
In both cases, the victim WAS black...and "unarmed". The Charlotte officer involved is also BLACK, however.
Makes no nevermind to such riotous animals when it comes to having any opportunity to "get free stuff", using the facade of some sort of protest to cover their behavior.
Typical...so very typical.
|Burning stuff on an Interstate doesn't help the cause.|
*** Next, let's lighten things up with "The Hobo Chronicles"...
|"Wow...what a nice repast."|
|"Ahhh...it's a wonderful life."|
|"And, I'll wait by the door right here."|
*** Last back to the rabbit hole...there are many times when people in this country simply DO NOT REALIZE HOW WELL THEY HAVE IT HERE.
We, as a society, have dismissed the appreciation we SHOULD be showing. Same goes for patriotism, and thankfulness for the liberties and freedom we enjoy here (and that many have come to expect in greater measure).
That is fast becoming a major issue here...EXPECTATIONS.
People "expect" much of what they're not willing to work for, or deserving of in the first place.
There is no "something for nothing" here. Everything has it's cost...or someone.
The anarchistic behaviors we're seeing on our OWN streets is testimony to those who expect something for nothing, and are willing to get it at any cost.
Got news for them, they may find that getting something is not as worthwhile a challenge as wanting it.
If we permit people to all but yell "FIRE!" in a crowded auditorium, we are setting ourselves up for a bad fall.
BUT...when we allow pride to supplant fairness, and make some people MORE equal than others (by allowing such people the freedom to wreak havoc and chaos), we diminish the meaning of what this nation is all about, as well as minimize our effectiveness as examples of a civilized society. This is NOT what the Founders intended for us.
If we root ourselves back in the realm of morality, we will be better able to address our problems, and thereby find the right solutions to them. To do less is to desire less, and that is something we cannot afford.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
