Pretty cool drone video of Chicago in the winter can be found here. My adopted city looks pretty good from the air.

Michael Moore is still a dickhead.
Say what you will about the book or movie of ‘American Sniper’, this was uncalled for…
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse

France has a real mess on its hands. A little background on France: a while back, the country went all in on multiculturalism, giving citizenship to millions of muslim immigrants. Roughly 10 percent of the population (over six million) are now muslim, but many of those immigrants never assimilated with the country or culture. In fact, the majority of them are sympathetic to ISIS.
The immigrants were allowed to isolate themselves in a new country. This is where hate speech was allowed to fester, while the unemployment rate among young french muslim men rose to 45%. Today there are huge muslim ghettos, with some very impoverished and pissed off ISIS sympathizers.
France let in more immigrants than they could support, and the country now has millions of disenfranchised, unassimilated citizens, a mess of their own creation.
There are lessons to be learned here. I’m all for immigration, but let’s do things in an orderly fashion. We need to know who we are letting in, and make sure they are here to assimilate as ‘americans’. This applies to muslims, guatemalans, everybody. The chaotic manner we have on our southern border is a recipe for disaster. If you’ve ever seen a mexican news broadcast, you know that cartel thugs are every bit as violent as an ISIS fighter. We are all but inviting the same violence to this country when we refuse to control the flow.

It was seven below zero this morning. Wind Chills near 35 below. That is cold.
On the bright side, I paid $1.86 for gas, but it is apparently going back up..

The Ohio State Buckeyes beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on New Years day. The same day, the Oregon Ducks crushed the undefeated Florida State Seminoles and ended their 29 game winning streak. Now we see if the Ducks can end the current longest winning streak in NCAA Football and see if they can beat the Buckeyes on January 12.
I am almost too cold to care. It was ZERO this morning when I got up with a wind chill somewhere south of twenty below. We are set for another blanket of snow overnight (3-5 inches). Oh Joy! This means I get to shovel the driveway tomorrow morning before work in below zero temps!
However, The Buckeyes beat Bama and my hopes and dreams of yet another championship, the first ever playoff, were dashed. Congrats to the Buckeyes and the Ducks!

Not really about R. v. Wade
When it comes to the wheels of justice they typically crush little children…
I am seeing how these modern “mommies” killing their children relates back to the legalization of abortion. Now don’t come at me with daggers and Bibles because I don’t have a dog in either hunt. And I really don’t give a rip what your personal political opinion is on this issues. Vote for whoever the Hell you want. We get the leaders we deserve IMO.
My position has always been abortion is legal and people should deal with it. It will NEVER get repealed. NEVER. But conversely I also don’t think the Govt should pay for it. Instead, I do think the Govt should subsidize and regulate the adoption business. A waste of life is just plain illogical from my standpoint.
Any way since R. v. Wade was in 1973, 2 1/2 generations of people (women and men) have grown into reproductive maturity. So as they go through puberty and sexual activity pregnancy has not been such definite consequence. There is the option to get rid of it. So as generations have come and gone with this option, I believe that there is a mindset in many men and women that occupant of the womb is something akin to a tumor. (This of course changes when most people give birth and they see their baby for the first time. Then the humanity of the child becomes obvious and there’s an emotional connection made).
But there are those who are socio/psychopath to begin with and cannot empathize with anyone much less this nebulous growth expanding in their body. THEIR body.
For whatever reason (positive attention from friends and family, having the father commit by proposing or marrying the mother , etc.). they have and keep the child. In Casey Anthony’s case,when precious Caylee was born, Casey had the first selfless (probably not…) thought in her head and wanted to put Caylee up for adoption and Cindy said :
“HELL NO!!! YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE THIS BABY AND YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF IT BECOME RESPONSIBLE (which history had shown George over and over that Casey was incapable of being responsible for any significant period of time..)AND GET THE HELL OUT OF MY HAIR ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!!”
History played out and it showed that it wasn’t Casey who took care and raised sweet little Caylee, it was CiCi and Joe Joe.
This is just a typical back story example of what lead up to what I have began calling “Post-Birth abortion”. Think about that concept. It fits.
Whether it’s buyer’s remorse (I can’t handle this, and all of the attention is gone), Or it becomes a romantic competitor/relationship blocker (Susan Smith), Power struggle “I’ll be damned if they win this WAR” ( Casey Anthony and Elizabeth Johnson ) or the Child is just plain annoying with that snot slinging crying and screaming ALLLL DAAAAY LOOONG!!!! Bam something snaps and the child is dead and the MOTHER/FATHER feels nothing. Fear of getting caught perhaps, but that’s it.
But the remorse is not there, hell they are glad the tumor is gone. Good riddance, now I can live my life how I want to….
I think this is a valid observation.
I don’t know about y’all but I’m getting sick of dead children at the hands of their parents and Justice just sits there. Maybe the youth aren’t the only ones who were desensitized by the legalization of abortion? Maybe we all have become a little. Maybe it’s society’s problem after all.
