My side of the fence.
Means no one is online reading blogs and I can say what I want to, say what I want to; you would cry too if it happened to you.
My neighbor vandalized my fence again this year. I was surprised when I got angry about it, even though it wasn't as bad as last year. Unfortunately, I confronted the husband and wife team, and said some uncharitable things. I could say even more right now, but I'm trying really, really hard to be forgiving and charitable. Once again however, because of my tongue, we will probably never speak again... but who wants friends like that anyway?
Minneapolis is the very worst city in the midwest - outside Chicago of course.
Minneapolis is a horrible city to live in, it is getting almost as bad as Chicago, although that may be because the criminals from Chicago move up here since we have tremendous emergency assistance and welfare benefits.
Anyway - just last week, a little 5 year old baby boy was sleeping on the couch in his living room when he was killed by a stray gun shot which penetrated the side of the house. Similarly, just a couple of months ago, another little kid was shot in exactly the same way as he was going up the stairs in his house - in the house! - a stray bullet killed him.
Last weekend, people were shot outside a gay bar downtown after closing. Lately there has been an increase in muggings and attacks downtown - some possibly racially motivated or gang related. This past week a woman's body was found in a downtown parking ramp - she had been stabbed to death. Yet police, downtown businesses, the mayor and city council members insist these crimes are 'isolated incidents' and the city is safe. Who lines their pockets, huh?
Trash - the city is run by trash.
Today I practically gift wrapped yard waste - all according to code - and the garbage collectors did not pick the stuff up - they picked up one bag of waste - probably because it was in a purchased compostable bag - while the other stuff was in ordinary craft bags - which are very much in compliance. I called the city 3 times already. You see I'm very, very, very tired of government interference, intervention and control of every effing thing we do, and it is only getting worse. Do you know what I'm saying? You can't eat or drink this or that. You can't dispose of this and that unless it is in a bag made by a company some city inspector probably signed a contract with. You can't smoke or get fat because you make other people who might look at you, sick. You must wear a helmet when you ride a bike, and the bike must be licensed and have a light and reflectors. (And my effing spell-check doesn't work either!)
Yeah! So everything is legislated and enforced these days - except the protection of life and morality. WTF?!
