AND, for the first time since last year, we DO NOT have a Sunday holiday ahead of us.
That means (unfortunately) that NEXT week, it's a full 5 days (oh...joy).
It's bitterly cold outside, and that "dusting" of snow we got was substantial enough to warrant clearing off the steps and sidewalks. SO dress accordingly and do drive carefully out there. We still have ice UNDER the snow.
Our Hoosierland weather for today will be...(what else?)...COLD. Damn cold, in fact.
Skies will be mostly clear (finally, a sunrise) with temps only groping thier way up to FOURTEEN degrees.
With the wind chills out there, it will feel like ZERO degrees all day. Word to the wise time, hmm?

*** Next up, time to take a look at some REALLY stupid shit that's been going on.
(we're talking about the four blacks torturing that white 18 year old...for TWO days.
Here's the latest on these animals:
|Hopefully NOT coming to a neighborhood near you.|
This is nothing short of sociopathic behavior from four less-than-human pieces of crap.
They need to be mentally evaluated and the parents of these beasts should also be held accountable. Lock up the lot of them.
An example needs to be made, and these four just went to the top of that list.
---Question: Is it true that what happens in Mexico STAYS in Mexico?
HIKE in gas prices, so they did what most blacks do (here) whenever ther's some sort of disaster...THEY LOOT!
This has nothing to do with gas or it's prices, but you have to admit that THESE rampaging animals learn VERY quickly from their USA counterparts.
NO problem with arresting those involved, for well over 400+ have been busted so far.
Wonder if these looters will become the next generation of wetbacks into the USA...and will they bring their ill-gotten gain WITH them?
---Our outgoing (not fast enough) "leader" proves he never had the "chops"...
THIS to his growing list of NON-accomplishments?
He's giving his (other) list of FAILED accomplishments some serious competition.
This is typical of so many leftists - start a bunch of things, and NEVER finish any of them.
(and jack up the costs along the way to make it look like something's being done).
But all is not lost - Barry is planning one last (taxpayer-sponsored) "par-tay" at the White House.
Sounds ghetto enough to me...wonder if the place will be trashed like so many others of his kind tend to do when they leave their "rental"? It's just a bigger crib. I'd count the silverware and towels...just in case.
---And, just to add some "local color" to things, there is this story from the N-S:
(Note: you want local crime news, read the News-Sentinel and not the Journal Gazette)
The woman was loading groceries when the strongarm occurred.
|But, we got a nice downtown and riverfront plans.|
Haven't heard anything about either one being arrested yet.
*** Next, and moving away from all this nonsense, let's stop on by "Kitten Corner"...
|"We're waiting for you to get started."|
Every bin I brought up from the basement HAD to be "inspected" by the cats.
|"Hey, let's help Daddy with this stuff"|
This made things take a bit longer than I wanted, but I did finally get all of it squared away.
After that, it was business as usual - chase one another around, Violet wrestling with her "brother", getting ON the tables (trying to break Gallifrey of that), and then snooze a bit before getting fed.
|"Where'd that stuffed bear go?"|
Wouldn't mind one bit if they decided to SHARE some of that energy they appear to have in abundance.
I could use it JUST to keep up with them.
*** Last back to the arctic circle...maybe this will be a year of "push-backs".
We are ensconced in a society that cannot even mention the ETHNICITY of a perpetrator in a crime (when it's known).
We are hip-deep in all this "political-correctness" bullshit.
And, I suppose my question is this: WHEN did everything under the sun become a "political" issue? Add to that a healthy dose of WHY, too.
Whenever any society starts to omit aspects OF that society, it begins a trek down a very nasty path.
We've already banned certain words, which to me, is utter nonsense, and we've allowed such insane notions like "white-privilege" to creep into mainstream society...and to what end?
"I" feel privileged? Well, that depends on the CONTEXT of how it's presented.
I certainly don't feel ANY privilege because of my skin color, and no amount of privilege has come knocking at our door.
In life, you get what you work for, at least you used to.
THIS country, which I still feel is the best damn one on the planet, in spite of the attempts over the last 8 years to dislodge that way of life (and thinking).
Like I've said many times here...people these days are confusing RIGHTS with PRIVILEGES.
And that also has dire consequences, as we've seen with this whole "entitlement" mindset.
What hasn't been addressed is how being (or feeling) ENTITLED is leading to it's OWN version of PRIVILEGE.
THAT is something that needs to come under scrutiny, and I think we're starting to see it at last.
RIGHT is something you are given, as in through our Creator or our founding documents.
A PRIVILEGE is something you EARN, either through knowledge or other forms of training.
For example, becoming a military marksman is not an automatic thing...you EARN the privilege to wear the ribbon.
Same for driving...or welding...or most anything else you can name that requires work.
This can very well become the year we see people noticing the TRUTH to the matter.
Have yourselves a good weekend.
Stay SAFE out there, America.
