At what time will liberals like that  Rahm Emanuel going to get it?

He has animals roaming the streets of his city and rejects the concept where the average citizen could carry the most efficient means of self defense, meaning the gun.

Of course the following story of  woe goes far beyond gun control,  but as we all know a historical pattern of corruption in that fair city.


No matter how Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendant Garry McCarthy spin it by touting overall crime being down in the city, the numbers for 2013 are still horrifying.

The website, which keeps some pretty interesting data regarding

Chicago crime statistics, reports that the city saw 53 homicides in August, with 41 deaths and 224 wounded as a result of shootings.
The August crime wave ended on a tragic note, with 11 people shot and killed over Labor Day weekend; more than 25 more were shot and wounded.
For September to date, there are already seven shooting homicides with another 29 people wounded. The city crime data portal shows that murders and shootings are down, but only when compared to 2012. When compared to 2011, the number of murders is almost identical. shows a total 309 homicides for 2013, and things don’t seem to be getting any better.
Tell ya all what. This piece of information is something just of interest to me. Nothing to to be concerned us about except if this  type of savagery can't be contained,

Sun, Magnetic Reversal

This is an interesting phenomenon, the periodic reversal of the Sun's magnetic field. It doesn't affect us here on Earth, but if we had that happen here all heck would break loose.

Nothing for us regular folk to see, but to some of us it is an interesting fact of our Solar System.

Sun will flip its magnetic field soon

The sun is gearing up for a major solar flip, NASA says.
In an event that occurs once every 11 years, the magnetic field of the sun will change its polarity in a matter of months, according new observations by NASA-supported observatories.
The flipping of the sun's magnetic field marks the peak of the star's 11-year solar cycle and the halfway point in the sun's "solar maximum" — the peak of its solar weather cycle. NASA released a new video describing the sun's magnetic flip

"It looks like we're no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal," Todd Hoeksema, the director of Stanford University's Wilcox Solar Observatory, said in a statement. "This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system.
