IU-Bloomington Wets Itself

The damn phone's been ringing since the wee hours of the morning. Shermlock Jr. attends Indiana University in Bloomington.

Apparently he's given our home phone number to the IU Notify system and they've been graciously calling us to keep us apprised of the lockdown of IU because of two individuals absconding after have a knife fight with an acquaintance on campus property . The all-clear call came a few minutes ago when the IU Administrators determined that a knife fight among friends posed no danger to the campus computer at large.

If they're this touchy, I wonder what the IU Administrators will do on Halloween? Be careful what costumes you choose, kiddies. I'd shy away from going to your parties dressed as say, the traditional pirate or musketeer waving around your cutlass or foil. Or any costume that is complemented with a firearm.

Barry's Brownshirts

I've been following the actions of the National Park Service and other agencies, working a the behest of the President to ". . .make life as difficult for people as we can." If you haven't been following this, here's a sampling:

Park Service Workers Erect WWII Barricade

Scenic Overlooks Not Overlooked by Obamaites

WWII Memorial Barricade Wired Shut

Feds Try to Close the OCEAN Because of Shutdown

Police Remove Vietnam War Veterans at Memorial Wall

Iwo Jima Memorial Closed, Barricades Erected

Obama Deploys German Shepherds Against US Veterans

Police prevent drivers from pulling over and viewing Mt. Rushmore

John Ondrasik Is Kicked Out of Jefferson Memorial

Obama Shuts Down Statue of Liberty, Refuses Last Wish of Dying Girl

SpiteHouse: National Park goons remove handles from trail water fountains

I have no idea what's going through President Obama's mind as his administration directs these actions. And I don't know what he expects to accomplish. Surely not to win us over to his side. Did you watch Yogi Bear cartoons as a child? Who did you root for, the Ranger or Yogi? Exactly.
