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!
